EMINEM'S daughter, Haillie Mathers, has got into trouble over rude Twitter comments about Taylor Swift. According to the Daily Mirror, Mathers tweeted: "If @taylorswift13 is really dating the love of my life@Harry_Styles i will not be happy!" She later added: "Dear @taylorswift13, please stop wh*ring around with every guy you see. We all know you're only doing it so you can make another album." Fans of the couple, dubbed 'Haylor', responded badly to the tweets and forced a retraction: "Wow. I didnt mean for people to react to my tweet in the way that they have it was just a bit of fun! Sorry @taylorswift13 for my immaturity."

NICOLE 'INSPIRED' TO PURSUE SOLO CAREER
Nicole Scherzinger has admitted she may not return as a judge in the next series of X Factor. Scherzinger, who has taken two acts to the final of the ITV talent show, said: "I don't know if I'll come back next year. End on a high, right?" The 34-year-old singer said seeing "all the talent" on this year's show has inspired her to focus on her music career. She said: "As an artist, it's put into perspective what I want, how to go about it." If the former Pussycat Doll does decide to leave it will be another blow to the show, already suffering a huge drop in ratings, as she has proved popular with viewers.

SIMON COWELL GUN RANGE TARGETS
Simon Cowell is joining the ranks of the world's most hated dictators as he becomes a gun range target. Machine Guns Vegas, in Las Vegas, are offering customers the chance to shoot at the X Factor mogul with assault rifles, and the Cowell target will feature alongside versions of Osama Bin Laden, Muammar Gaddafi and Saddam Hussein, reports The Sun. After Depeche Mode guitarist Martin Gore recently said Cowell should be assassinated for destroying the music industry, a range spokesman explained: "We agree with Martin Gore. The target is expected to become as popular as the Osama Bin Laden one."

HUGH JACKMAN: 'CRAIG IS TOO OLD FOR BOND'
Hugh Jackman has admitted he'd love it if Daniel Craig stepped aside to let him have a go at the role of James Bond. Jackman, who is tipped for an Oscar for his role in Les Miserables and turned down the part of Bond in 2006's Casino Royale, told The Sun he often jokes with his "great mate" Craig that he's too old for the role. Jackson said: "He's falling apart at the seams. So I just keep telling him, 'I'm ready, whenever you want to let him go, I'm ready'." Jackson added: "The good thing is I have also got a British passport." ·
