The location looks like a scene from TV drama Lost – a crashed airliner surrounded by miles of impenetrable jungle on one side and deep blue ocean on the other.

But, in fact, the passenger jet is actually part of a luxurious hotel suite where highfliers can relax and enjoy the fantasy of being cut off from the rest of the world.

The two bedroom suite is housed inside the fuselage of a 1965 Boeing 727 which was destined for scrap.
Jutting out from a hillside, the plane offers spectacular views of the Manuel Antonio National Park’s rain forest in Costa Rica from balconies built on each wing.

Inside the refurbished airframe are two wood-panelled bedrooms, a kitchenette, dining room and living area and two bathrooms.

It costs between £200 and £250 per night to book the unusual suite situated on the Pacific Coast.

A spokesman for the Hotel Costa Verde described it as ‘the most exclusive hotel suite in Costa Rica’.

In its former life the plane transported globetrotters on South Africa Air and Avianca Airlines.

The giant was transported piece by piece from the San Jose airport to its current resting place on a pedestal 50 feet above the beach.

Five big trucks were needed to get the plane out to the resort, and while the transportation certainly had a negative ecological impact, the finished project is a stunning example of adaptive reuse.

The hotel spokesman added: ‘At this height, you will enjoy scenic ocean and jungle views from the hard wood deck built atop the plane’s former right wing.
‘The plane’s interior is Costa Rican teak paneling from the cockpit to the tail. Furnishings are hand-carved, teak furniture from Java, Indonesia.

‘Enjoy an evening on the terrace while sipping a glass of wine and observing your tree top neighbours: sloths, toucans and monkeys.’

Elen Rives slams Her Ex footballer

Posted by thejamkingshow on April 24, 2009

Damn Elen you can slam me anyday!!!
The ex-fiancee of England footballer Frank Lampard has condemned the star as ‘heartless’ over their split.

Elen Rives, who has two daughters by the Chelsea midfielder, says she is struggling to come to terms with life without him after their seven-year relationship ended in November.

‘He is so heartless. He’s moved on and is seeing other girls,’ said the former air hostess, 34. ‘I text him to tell him I’m not coping, but he doesn’t care. I cry to him on the phone but I get nothing from him. No emotion, just blank. He’s a b*****d.’

It was initially thought that it was Miss Rives’s decision to call off their engagement, amid allegations that he had had an affair.

But during a night out at the London nightclub Bungalow 8, she said: ‘I still love Frank. I’ve been crying all night.

‘I want things to work out, but don’t know if it will.

‘I don’t know if he’ll come round. I don’t know what to do. To be honest I’m not doing very well.

‘He’s in our house which he has turned into a bachelor pad.

‘And I’m in a small flat waiting for my own flat with our two daughters.’

Luna is two and Isla one.

‘The house is in his name. We’re not married so I’m not getting the

‘I miss him but he is with another girl. He says she is nothing serious but in the papers it looks more serious.

‘I text him but get no response.

‘Everyone says I’m the strong one, but I’m not coping. I’m 34 and old now, what am I supposed to do?

‘It’s too late for me,’ she told the Daily Mirror.

‘The papers say I’m 29, but I’m 34. I don’t know what I want to do now. I’m not like Coleen (McLoughlin, Wayne Rooney’s wife) who is 23 with a great career – so I don’t know how I can move on.

‘It’s so hard.’

Lampard, who earns €120,000 a week, has recently been linked with millionaire’s daughter Saskia Boxford, 23.

The brunette model watched him play at Wembley in the recent England international against Ukraine, where she sat in the VIP seats alongside WAGs such as Victoria Beckham and Abi Clancy.

However, Lampard insists he is not dating Miss Boxford and had dinner with her on one occasion only.’
During their relationship Frank was allegedly caught on two occasions with other women.

He is now selling the London townhouse which he bought in 2005 and has reportedly told friends that there is ‘no going back.’

The England star was devastated by the death of his mother Pat, from severe pneumonia, last April.

‘It is still with me, it doesn’t get any easier, just different,’ he told the Daily Mail earlier this year.

Here’s Joss Stone at Coachella wearing a skirt that might be just a tad too short for someone performing on an elevated stage. Just a tad. but we don’t mind!. The 22-year-old British songstress delighted the crowds by jumping off the stage and joining them for part of her set, showing off her rainbow-coloured pastel pedicure as she danced on the grass. Later, a sunburnt Joss was spotted in a white maxi-dress relaxing with can of beer after her exuberant performance.

INDIO, Calif. — M.I.A. gave the main stage at Coachella her best shot. It just didn’t work out.

After a strong start, a few hiccups, and a somewhat listless finale, the Grammy-nominated new mom declared at the end of her hour-long set in the desert that “next time I’m back in the tent.”

“I want to be in the sweat,” she said.

M.I.A. had performed twice in smaller tents at the music festival, in its tenth year and one of the nation’s most prestigious.

She noted earlier, “I really don’t know how to bring it on the main stage.” And her live show staples — climbing on speakers, dancing body-to-body with the crowd — didn’t quite fit the new digs. When she tried to bring some of the audience onstage Saturday night, security guards thwarted most fans.

M.I.A. ended up on a platform above the crowd performing “Bird Flu,” and asked when it was over: “Can we get some order in the place? My baby’s waiting.” She gave birth to a son in February, a few days after the Grammys.

The Killers took the main stage to close the evening. The Las Vegas-based group, who began with their most recent single “Human,” appeared far more comfortable in the setting.

Wearing a black No Limit Records T-shirt, sneakers and jeans with Day-Glo green lining, M.I.A. performed songs from her two most recent albums and gave up the spotlight to Baltimore-based protege Rye Rye for a song. While she moved alongside Day-Glo-clad dancers for a lively opening number, she stood stiffly at other times behind a podium adorned with microphones as if at a news conference.

Roaming into the audience with help of a piggyback ride, she finished with crowd favorite “Paper Planes,” lifted to hit status by appearances in “Pineapple Express” and “Slumdog Millionaire.”

But the British-born, Sri-Lankan-bred rapper pushed back against Hollywood. She slyly referenced her status as Coachella replacement for Amy Winehouse, who canceled due to visa trouble, by singing “They tried to make me do the Oscars. I said no, no, no.”

And, she noted, “I want to let you know that just ‘cuz I did the Grammys, it doesn’t mean I’ve gone all sold out.”

Though she wasn’t embracing Hollywood, some of its regulars certainly wanted to be around for her. Zac Efron was seen ducking out of the fest’s VIP area in the afternoon Saturday, and Paris Hilton posed for pictures with her new boyfriend during Thievery Corporation’s popular main stage set just before M.I.A.

Also performing Saturday were Joss Stone, TV On The Radio, Fleet Foxes — who apologized to fans after suffering repeated technical problems — and Travis Barker and DJ AM, who had the dance tent crowd roaring at their drum-assisted remixes of pop hits.

Exact figures weren’t released but crowds at the three-day festival appear to have more than doubled the approximate 75,000 population of this community southeast of Palm Springs. Police reported 17 arrests Saturday and fire officials said two people had been taken to hospitals.

Temperatures, climbing throughout the fest, were expected to hit the high 90s on Sunday, which features the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Public Enemy, My Bloody Valentine and the Cure.

The cheek of it Lady GaGa goes a$$ up!

Posted by thejamkingshow on April 18, 2009

Lady GaGa has given new meaning to the term ‘bottoms up’ following a night out in the capital.

The New Yorker was spotted leaving trendy London nightspot in a see-through chiffon catsuit. Her saucy look left waiting photographers jostling for position of the cheeky chart-topper – who decided to play them at their own game.

Armed with her trusty Nikon camera, the singer whose real name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, took her own snaps of the paparazzi.
It had been a busy night for the Poker Face pin up, who’d earlier enjoyed drinks at the famous Groucho Club.

Her whistlestop visit to London, which has included an appearance on the Jonathan Ross show, has been a stop-off on the way Russia.

She is preparing to perform her first ever gig in Moscow’s Famous Club next week.

GaGa is also filming the video to her upcoming single Paparazzi – her third release from the best-selling The Fame album.
On Sunday, her song Poker Face was knocked off the top spot after three weeks in the British singles chart by Calvin Harris I’m Not Alone.

It was yet another innovative look for Lady GaGa, who has stormed her way into the public’s imagination with her unique style.

She has described it as ‘a commentary on what it means to be a lady’, adding she developed her signature look by absorbing her mother’s love of fashion while growing up.

50-year-old mother who has spent £10,000 on surgery to look like her daughter

Posted by thejamkingshow on April 15, 2009

OK This is a WHATEVER!! story for me and weird one at that. wonder if mom is using bio-identical hormone replacement therapy to?!! (lol) well anyway
With their flowing blonde hair, hourglass figures and slender, toned legs, they could easily pass for twins. Both look fabulous in their matching polka dot dresses and, as Janet and Jane Cunliffe happily recount, potential boyfriends often struggle to tell them apart.

Hardly surprising, as both weigh in at 8st and, save for a couple of inches in height (at 5ft 6in, Jane is two inches taller) and different eye colours (Jane’s are brown, Janet’s are blue) they are virtually identical.

But Janet and Jane are not twins. They aren’t even sisters. They are mother and daughter. And, in what many will see as a depressing indictment of today’s youth-obsessed society, Janet confesses to having spent more than £10,000 on plastic surgery in a desperate effort to bridge the 22-year age gap between herself and her daughter.

Spot the difference: Janet, left, has spent £10,000 on plastic surgery to look like her daughter, Jane, right

In this image-conscious age, it is a bittersweet moment for many mothers to confront the fact that their daughter’s beauty eclipses her own.

It is a rite of passage that most women, while far from thrilled, are pragmatic enough to accept as a part of life.

But not 50-year-old Janet. She views the small matter of being in her sixth decade as a mere technicality.

She is amused and proud that friends jokingly refer to her and her daughter as Paris and Chantelle after the platinum blonde socialite and the equally platinum former Celebrity Big Brother contestant.

Some might see this as empowering for a woman who is well into middle age. Others might take the view that it is contrary to the laws of Mother Nature – not that Janet has much truck with her anyway.
‘Who wouldn’t want to look like my daughter?’

As she said this week to sources: ‘It might sound barmy that I had cosmetic surgery to look like my daughter, but she’s gorgeous.

Who wouldn’t want to look like her?

‘The way I see it is that she got her looks from me in the first place – mine have just faded with age.

‘Seeing how attractive Jane is made me want to get my looks back. Now instead of mum and daughter we look more like twins. I had good genes and good skin, but I needed a helping hand to make me feel better about myself.’

Certainly Janet wasn’t always such a head-turner. Just a few years ago, she was a size 14 redhead and felt, she says, dowdy and unattractive.

Not, she insists, that she was ever vain. ‘I didn’t have time for vanity in my 20s as I was too busy bringing up Jane and her brother, Pete,’ she says.

‘I didn’t pay much attention to myself.’

That changed as she entered her 30s and became increasingly disconsolate with her changing figure.

‘Like any woman who’s had children, gravity had started to take its toll on my breasts,’ she says.

hey’d been small to start with, but they had become saggy and it made me depressed. So I booked in for a boob job. At £4,000 my husband wasn’t best pleased, but I thought it was worth it,’ she says.

Alas, the new breasts weren’t enough to save her marriage.

By the age of 40, Janet, by then divorced, had moved to Spain. Her new partner (who she doesn’t want to name) ran a swimming pool business and she took on secretarial work.

It was a fresh start, but one which was overshadowed when, in 2003, an implant ruptured.

Restorative surgery was needed and Jane took the opportunity to go from a 34C to a DD.

‘I thought if I was going to pay £2,500 I might as well go bigger,’ she says. ‘I hadn’t been that pleased with them the first time round and when Jane came to visit I noticed my bust looked flat in comparison. I wanted to give myself a boost.’

Despite the new breasts, Janet still felt she looked old before her time, and her relationship with her new partner was floundering.

‘We’d been living together for eight years, but it wasn’t working any more. We argued non-stop and finally, in May last year, I decided to move back home to be with my daughter.’

Happily, Jane was more than willing to provide a berth for her mother while she found her feet.

‘It was a tough time and I was a bit of a lost cause,’ says Janet. ‘I didn’t know who I was or where I belonged. I hadn’t lived in Britain for so long that I didn’t have any friends here. It was a terrible time. I knew I had to sort out my life.’

For Jane, a fun night out was an obvious way to cheer up her mum. But well-meaning as it was, for Janet it only reinforced her feelings of inadequacy.

‘I couldn’t find anything decent to wear – having lived in Spain, all I had were shorts, T-shirts and scruffy jeans. I had nothing fashionable and couldn’t borrow anything from Jane because it was all too small.

‘I remember looking at Jane and saying: “I wish I had your figure.” I’d had a body just like hers when I was younger but now I was just a blob.

‘I began to see that in Spain I’d been living the life of a pensioner and had forgotten how to make the most of myself. I may have been pushing 50, but I still wanted to live life to the full, and why shouldn’t I?’
‘I envied Jane’s crinkle-free eyes and full lips’

Nonetheless, spending time with her daughter’s young friends made Jane examine her face and body more closely.

‘Jane and her friends are so glamourous and gorgeous that I stood out like a sore thumb. I felt like an old bag,’ she says. ‘Jane told me not to be so self-critical, but I knew it was true.’

For Janet, socialising with friends her own age, starting a hobby or meeting new people were not going to help. What was holding her back, she felt, was the face staring back in the mirror.

‘I remembered only too well when I used to be a lovely looking girl,’ she says. ‘I’d seen all these older celebrities who somehow managed to turn back the clock and I wondered if I could do the same. At the very least I wanted to give it a try.’

And so Operation Overhaul began. ‘I ditched junk food and started to follow the same healthy diet as Jane.

‘Out went potatoes and pasta and I started eating grilled chicken salad and green veg,’ says Janet.

‘Jane didn’t drink in the week, so I cut out white wine in the evening and stopped snacking between meals.’

The effects were startling: in four months, Janet lost 2st and could slip into her daughter’s size 8 trousers.

For many fifty-something women, a healthy, slender figure would have been enough, but Janet wasn’t happy – dropping three dress sizes was all very well, but she still had the face of an older woman.

‘I envied Jane’s crinkle-free eyes, full lips and luscious, long blonde hair,’ says Janet. ‘I was desperate to look more like my daughter, but knew no wrinkle creams could ever wind back the clock that far.’

And so, perhaps inevitably, Janet started to consider the more drastic route of cosmetic surgery, initially conducting her research on the internet.

She stumbled across the website of Linda Briggs, a surgery aficionado who has her own business offering guidance and advice to others thinking of going under the knife.

‘I decided to give her a ring and ended up speaking to Linda’s husband, Mike,’ says Janet. ‘He said he’d just had his eyes done in Croatia and was thrilled with the results. That was enough for me. I booked pretty much straightaway.

‘I had some savings and knew if I wanted to look more like Jane then I’d have to get my eyes done first, and my nose.’
‘Men kept doing a double take and asked if we were sisters’

None of this comes cheap, even if prices are competitive abroad. By the time she had totted up her procedures, the bill came to £5,000, including flights and board. Then there was the little matter of telling her daughter.

‘She was furious and begged me not to do it,’ says Jane. ‘It wasn’t that she was cross with me for wanting to look like her, it was because she was worried about me having an operation.’

For some, this might have given serious pause for thought. This was, after all, non-essential surgery, and did not come without risk. But Janet was determined.

‘I’d made up my mind,’ she says. ‘As far as I was concerned, I knew what I was doing. I wanted to look younger and felt it would do wonders for my self-esteem.’

And so last September, she flew out to Croatia on her own to undergo the two-hour operation on her nose and eyes, which took place under local anaesthetic.

I was a bit frightened, but not enough to put me off,’ she says. ‘I just decided to put my trust in their hands. It wasn’t pleasant, but I got through it.’

She returned a week later, bruised and bandaged, but euphoric after being told by the surgeon that the result would be good, a claim that seemed to be upheld when the bandages were removed, revealing a younger Janet who looked eerily like her daughter.

‘I was delighted,’ she says. ‘It was everything I’d hoped for.’

There were, however, a number of other final touches if Operation Overhaul – or should that be Project Jane? – was to prove fully successful.

‘I decided that my lips were too thin, so I had a series of injections to plump them up. They cost around £300 but they make all the difference,’ she says.

Then there were the blonde hair extensions, at a cost of several hundred pounds, at a local salon. And finally a new wardrobe of size 6 to 8 clothes.

The effect, it must be said, is certainly startling. ‘The first time we went to a local wine bar, we were the centre of attention,’ says Janet proudly. ‘Men kept doing a double take and all night people asked if we were sisters. We both loved the attention.’
‘I love us looking the same’

Just what must Jane really make of it? A family resemblance is one thing, but a mirror image when you look at the woman who gave birth to you is quite another.

And Jane has sometimes had to cope with the fact that some people think she is the ‘older’ sister.

‘It’s not because I look older than my years, but just that Mum looks unbelievably young for her age. She looks better than Madonna at 50, which is saying something.

‘People ask if I mind that she’s transformed herself into me, but I couldn’t be more proud. I’m the one who helps her with her hair and clothes, so it’s down to me, too. I can hardly accuse Mum of copying my looks when she gave them to me, can I?

‘Actually, I love us looking the same, we’re closer than ever and she’s the sister I always wanted and never had.’

Both ‘girls’ insist there’s no jealousy. ‘We’re both confident about our looks,’ says Jane. ‘Men give me just as many compliments as Mum gets, so why would I feel jealous?

‘I don’t worry about introducing boyfriends to her. I know they’d never get anywhere, even if they did make a move on her.’

In fact, while there have been no shortage of offers from toy boys, Janet is happy being single.

‘It’s not a competition. This has always been about my own confidence and self-esteem. I haven’t done this to get a man, I’m happy spending time with my daughter and reliving my youth, thanks to my new look.’

The question, of course, is where will it all end? For now, Janet says: ‘I think I’ve had enough surgery. I’ve put myself through enough . . . unless I suddenly start to look really old overnight.’
