Billionaire chairman Barry Diller quits as concert revenues slump

Here comes the (scantily dressed) bride

You can't get much more Italian than a Dolce & Gabbana show. From the tanned fashion press in sunglasses and head-to-toe black, to the seductive lace creations that are one of the label's signatures, there is no mistaking where designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana are from – and where their hearts belong.

Culture Club: I'm Still Here (15)

Readers review this week's big film

Rhiannon Harries: 'Why is no one criticising Sir Cliff for his crazy diet?'

One meal a day, occasional fasting, no wheat, no dairy, various vitamin and mineral supplements, regular five-mile walks and work-outs in the home gym. Now, who would follow a regime like this? Jennifer Aniston in pre-Oscars mode? Trudie Styler on holiday?

Celebrity portraits of Mick Jagger and Madonna feature in new exhibition

My Edinburgh: Scott Mills, Radio 1 DJ

In future, to paraphrase Andy Warhol's maxim, Andy Barron will be famous for four minutes. That was how long he spent on the pitch during the World Cup, though the fact that the New Zealand midfielder was the sole amateur in the 32 squads and also an investment consultant, ensured his cameo against Italy made news around the planet.

Cultural Life: Tulisa of N-Dubz, singer

Music: My favourite track at the moment is "Rescue Me" by Skepta. I'm also really happy Kate Nash is back. I respect female artists who write their own music like I do with N-Dubz. I'm listening to everything from The Prodigy to old-school Madonna. On my iPod I've got a massive selection from grime and garage to modern R&B.

Deborah Ross: 'One day your upper arms are fine and dandy, the next they’re flapping away like washing on the line'

If you ask me, when a lady gets to a certain age, her upper arm area can no longer be counted on as the good friend it once was and, in my own instance, my upper arm area was once a very good friend, the best kind of friend, a fine, true upstanding friend of the sort I was proud to be seen with in public, while wearing short sleeves, and maybe even cap sleeves. (Cap sleeves! I used to wear cap sleeves! Can you believe it?)
