The ‘All The Lovers’ hitmaker is moving into one of the most expensive apartment blocks in the world with boyfriend Andres Velencoso, according to the Daily Star newspaper. The three bedroom property is part of the One Hyde Park development in the English capital’s exclusive Knightsbridge district. Facilities on offer in the £500 million tower include a 21-metre swimming pool, a private cinema, saunas, gym and squash courts, and even a golf simulator. Their neighbours will include oil barons, Saudi royalty and other A-list stars.

Kylie, 42, spends most of her time in London when not on tour, although she returns to her native Australia to be with her parents at Christmas.

Insiders say the move for the ’2 Hearts’ singer may be the first steps in her planning to settle down and start a family with male model Andres, who she has been dating since 2008.

She has previously said: ‘ do think about surrogacy and adoption and I would absolutely look into those options because children and family are very important to me. It’s something in my mind.’

Kylie has also recently confessed she considers retiring every time she finishes a tour, although after a few months she is always lured back to music.

She said: “Do I think of retiring? Absolutely. I say that at the end of every tour. And then something happens a few months down the line and I start thinking of songs and getting that itch. What can I say? I’m addicted.”

It is not yet known when Kylie and Andres are planning to move to the new property.

Kate Moss is planning to open a Bed and Breakfast hotel in Cornwall.  The supermodel is reportedly making plans to move to the South West English coast with rocker boyfriend Jamie Hince and seven-year-old daughter Lila Grace ‘ whose father is publisher Jefferson Hack ‘ and is hoping to buy a £1.2 million five-bedroom property and convert it into a luxury guest house. A source told the Daily Star newspaper: ‘She is desperate for a healthier lifestyle away from all the celeb parties for the sake of her health and for her daughter. ‘Jamie is over the moon as he has been keen to get Kate to quit the capital for a while.’  Although she has not been to view the property – named Bodriggan and located in the village of Golant – Kate has reportedly shown pictures of it to all her friends. The property has a mock-Tudor styled fronting, and its own vineyard. Another friend said: ‘She’s yearned for a seaside retreat for some time. Jamie’s quite a bookworm so he turned her on to the Cornish writer Daphne du Maurier, who lived in Fowey, and since then Kate has been researching the area. They are planning to convert it into a luxury Bed and Breakfast for their friends.’     Although the couple want to convert the property to a guesthouse, it is not thought Kate will be offering rooms to the general public, instead reserving the spare rooms for her pals. The source added: ‘t will be more a place for her friends to stay ‘ I can’t see her renting rooms to total strangers.’ Kate and Jamie have previously bid to buy a property in Bigbury on Sea, Devon, in a different part of the South West coast, but their £5 million offer was turned down. They have also reportedly been spotted househunting on the island of Stromboli, off Italy, where they are said to have tried to buy a plot of land to build a coastal home. The house will be the 36-year-old beauty’s third UK property, after her base in London and a country retreat in the Cotswolds in Oxfordshire.

Lady Gaga requests tea and cheese in her concert riders.  The eccentric pop star – who is known for her extravagant stage sets – has a surprisingly low-key list of requests for her backstage rider, including no alcohol.   The ‘Telephone’ singer demands a roast chicken, a plate of cheese on ice with a tray of assorted meats, low-fat milk, salsa dips and whole-wheat bread and crackers to snack on before and after her gigs.   Instead of alcoholic beverages, the 24-year-old star asks for ginger ale, 12 bottles of still water and a hot cup of tea or decaffeinated coffee.   A music industry source told the Daily Star newspaper: “Despite her out-there image, this rider proves that Lady Gaga is actually quite down to earth and normal compared to the diva-like demands of some pop stars.”  Lady Gaga also requests a pot of honey, which is known to combat stomach ulcers and sooth sore throats.   Alexandra Burke is another star to follow in her footsteps as she demands an expensive £10 jar of Manuka honey before all her shows. However, Mariah Carey lives up to her diva reputation by demanding  £750-a-bottle Cristal champagne and Evian water.
