Moss said to wed
Doherty this week
LONDON, England
Supermodel Kate Moss and troubled rocker Pete Doherty could marry this week in London, The Mail on Sunday newspaper said.
The fashion icon and the musician battling a drug addiction are expected to tie the knot in a civil ceremony in west London, the tabloid said.
Singer Doherty, 27, has invited his fellow Babyshambles bandmates to witness the ceremony at the Fulham Register Office, said the weekly. "Both Kate and Pete have invited close friends and family to meet them there on Friday," an unnamed source told the paper.
"There's been a bit of a tussle over the guest list, which is small because Kate's concerned that some of Pete's hangers-on are bad news, but he's determined to have his mates there."
And a wider group of friends and family have been invited to the Spanish party island of Ibiza for a lavish wedding celebration on January 18, the newspaper said.
"Kate and Pete will travel out to the island a couple of days ahead of the party, in time for her 33rd birthday on January 16. Everyone else has been told to get there on the 18th and lots have already booked their flights," a source close to both told the newspaper.
Indian of the Year
NEW DELHI, India
Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan, whose star and sex appeal remains undiminished by age, has been voted Indian of the Year, the Times of India reported yesterday.
An opinion poll in the newspaper said 15 percent of Indians voted for the 64-year-old actor as the most popular citizen, far ahead of the five percent who backed star batsman Sachin Tendulkar and ruling Congress party president Italian-born Sonia Gandhi.
Bachchan got maximum votes from housewives - 19 percent - and those in the 35-45 age category in the survey of 1,005 people in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai and Bangalore.
