ROBBIE WILLIAMS NOMINATED FOR BRITISH IVOR NOVELLO AWARD

Robbie Williams' flop single 'Rudebox' has been nominated for a prestigious Ivor Novello Award. The track which was widely panned by critics is up for hit of the year at the British ceremony. The troubled star - who recently spent time in rehab for a prescription drug addiction - is up against Madonna's 'Sorry', and Scissor Sisters' smash hit 'I Don't Feel Like Dancin''. Despite only topping the charts in Germany and Switzerland, judges decided Robbie's single was still successful enough to be shortlisted. An awards spokesman said: "The nominations are based on statistical data and the award is for the song by a British writer that has sold the most around the world." Arctic Monkeys songwriter Alex Turner is up for best song musically and lyrically, for the group's hit 'When The Sun Goes Down'. British soul singer Amy Winehouse has been put forward for best contemporary song for 'Rehab'. Her nomination follows her BRIT Awards success in February when she was named best British Female. Madonna and Scissor Sisters lead the way in the nominations with two each.

SHERYL CROW USES LESS TOILET PAPER

Don't shake hands with Sheryl Crow !

Sheryl Crow believes using less toilet paper will stop global warming. The 'If It Makes You Happy' singer, who spent two weeks touring the US on a Stop Global Warming College Tour, is convinced one square per visit is sufficient. Sheryl writes on her tour blog: "I propose a limitation to be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting. I think we are industrious enough people to make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where two to three could be required." The singer - who travelled on a bio-diesel bus with environmentalist Laurie David for the tour - says people should try and do their bit to reduce their carbon footprint, no matter how small their gesture. She said: "As we've been telling everyone, it's not about doing everything, it's about doing something. "Our sole objective is not to be preaching to the converted but hopefully be bringing some people over to the side of protecting the environment and also giving kids some idea of how they can be a part of that movement." Sheryl, 45, has also designed a detachable sleeve which is used to wipe your mouth after dining to cut down on napkin use. She said: "I think this idea could also translate quite well to people suffering from a cold."
