A new film on Michael Jackson promises to reveal "the many different facets of his personality."

'Michael Jackson: The Life of an Icon' directed by Andrew Eastel and produced by Michael's close childhood friend David Gest, involves interviews with more than 50 of his closest friends and family members and is set to reveal what his family went through during his molestation trial in 2005.

Along with a rare interview with Michael's eldest sister Rebbie, where she speaks about his difficult relationship with their father Joe, the movie will also provide insight into the singer's early years with the Jackson 5, his solo career and his life up to his sudden death from acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009.

Michael's mother Katherine said: "'Michael Jackson: The Life of an Icon' is a truly remarkable film that captures the true character, wit and sensitivity of my son. Producer David Gest takes you on an emotional roller coaster that will bring people to tears as well as really understand who the man behind the music was and is."

David added: "I have tried to show Michael in a truly unique light. I have spent the past fifteen months travelling the world interviewing people who were most important in his life. I believe this film will entertain and educate in equal measures about who the real Michael Jackson was. I hope this will serve as a lasting testament to the compassion and love that he had for all mankind. He was a very complex individual and this film reveals the many different facets of his personality."

Kanye West is confident he will be godfather to Beyonce's baby.

The rapper-and-producer has told friends how excited he is about his close friend's pregnancy - her first child with her husband [art]Jay-Z[art] - because he thinks he will play a key role in its spiritual upbringing.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Kanye is as excited about the baby as Beyonce and Jay-Z.

"He's been saying he's going to be godfather and is absolutely thrilled. It will be a huge honor for him."

Beyonce announced she was pregnant at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) on Sunday, by posing for photographs clutching her baby bump.

Jay-Z and Kanye performed their new single 'Otis' together at the awards, then Beyonce also sang, rubbing her bump at the end of her performance, while Kanye patted her husband on the back.

The 'Single Ladies (Put a Ring on it)' hitmaker's publicist later confirmed the baby news, although no further details - such as how far into her pregnancy - have been made public.

The couple married in 2008 and the baby will be a first child for them both.

The singer told how she was ready to settle down into motherhood earlier this year, saying: "When you're young - 18 or 19 - you have the energy and drive. That's the time to work as hard as you can.

"Now I'm a woman, and because I gave it my all, I can focus on my marriage. I can decide I want to have kids. I can be the mother I want to be and dedicate myself to my children."

Justin Bieber is unhurt after being involved in a "minor" car crash.

The 17-year-old singing sensation's Ferrari - which he is thought to have been driving alongside an unnamed passenger - collided into a Honda Civic car the Studio City area of Los Angeles yesterday, but there was no damage done to either drivers or vehicles.

Los Angeles Police officer Gregory Baek confirmed the 'Never Say Never' hitmaker was involved in a "very minor collision" but said there was no visible damage to his car.

This is not the first traffic incident Justin has been involved in recently.

The 'Baby' hitmaker was recently pulled over by undercover police on Ocean Drive in Miami while driving his friend Sean Kingston's Rolls Royce convertible.

Police thought it was suspicious that someone so young was driving such an expensive car, but the pair did not break the law and were allowed to keep driving.

A source said at the time: "An undercover police officer was driving behind Justin and [his passenger] Sean Kingston. He pulled them over in front of the restaurant on Ocean Drive because he thought it was strange that this young kid was driving a brand new convertible Rolls-Royce."

Jay-Z doted on his pregnant wife Beyonce Knowles "the whole time" they were at the MTV Video Music Awards.

The '99 Problems' rapper was spotted backstage "flirting" with the singer - who announced she was expecting her first child at the ceremony at Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre on Sunday - and was by her side throughout the event to offer assistance.

A source said: "Jay was doting on her the whole time. He yelled, 'Mmm hmmm, Who's that sexy lady walking down here?' playing like he was flirting with her. It was so cute."

"He was really taking care of her, asking her how she feels and helping her walk. It was so sweet to see him like that."

The 29-year-old beauty - who married the 41-year-old hip-hop star in 2008 - was also being looked after by her mum, Tina Knowles, as she spent time backstage at the ceremony before she took to the stage to perform 'Love On Top.'

An insider added to Us Weekly magazine: "She was on top of everything - getting Beyonce everything she needed... Between Jay and her mom, she was totally taken care of. Her mom was getting her everything she needed."

Lady Gaga - who attended the ceremony dressed as her male alter-ego Jo Calderone - also made a fuss of Beyonce, visiting her dressing room a number of times to rub her stomach.

A source explained: "She kept coming over to rub Beyonce's belly and say hello. And the security guards thought she was a guy at first and wouldn't let her back! It was really funny."
