Tattoo who?

Keith Richards, a big fan of "The Sopranos," spent a certain portion of last season's episodes staring at Janice Soprano's left breast -- and he liked what he saw: the Rolling Stones' lip-and-tongue logo.

But Aida Turturro, who plays Tony Soprano's sister Janice (aka Parvati) on the HBO show, admits she was unable to give the wrinkly rock legend the satisfaction of seeing the tattoo firsthand when he approached her at the "Sopranos" sneak preview in New York a few weeks ago.

"He was disappointed when I told him that the tattoo wasn't real," Turturro tells the Toronto Sun, adding that the lips tattoo and another one, on her ankle, take an hour to paint on before each episode.

You can't always get what you want, Keith -- so just fuhgeddaboudit.

Lock the barn door!

No one would expect Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton's new Hollywood home -- which they bought a few months ago from Slash, of Guns 'N' Roses fame -- to be decorated in period-perfect French Provincial or anything (there is Thornton's fear of antiques to contend with), but it looks like the newlyweds' love nest is shaping up to be quite the wacky pad.

The U.K. Sun reports the duo has been installing those special touches that make a house a home: vibrating beds, the Velcro-covered room they've long dreamed of ...

"I plan to have fun," Angie said of decorating her new home. "I saw these plastic horses -- we'll have them instead of chairs. People will climb in the saddle to sit."

Catwalk fever

Sometimes it's hard to be a model, giving your attention to all those fans.

Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen says she's ditching the fashion-show circuit. And no, it's not because she wants to spend more time with her beloved beau, Leonardo DiCaprio. It's because -- at age 20 -- she's sick of the grind and is ready to trade it in for cushier ad work.

"Enough, it's over. It's the end when it comes to catwalks," Bundchen told Italian daily Corriere della Sera. "I'm very tired of going from one stylist to another, running here and there -- your cellphone's always ringing and someone's always fussing over you with a blow-dryer."

All that for only $7,500 an hour? Oh, the exploitation!

Juicy bits

Michael Jackson might have hobbled off the airplane on crutches when he arrived in London on Sunday for a string of U.K. engagements -- "I've broken two bones in my foot and it hurts," he groaned to reporters -- but he still managed to limp his way through a two-hour, $2,000 CD shopping spree at HMV with his buddy Macaulay Culkin, the BBC reports. What'd Jacko buy? Music by Radiohead, Coldplay and Eminem. He also picked up various videos -- including Culkin's "Home Alone 2" -- and the entire Bread back catalog. Bread? Guess Jacko will always and forever love them.
