MICHAEL BUBLE has joked that JUSTIN BIEBER's success at the American Music Awards has heralded a new era for Canadian pop music.

The crooner said he and Justin - who he mimics in his latest video - were just two Canadian acts who were ready to take over the US market.

Speaking backstage at the LA ceremony, he quipped: ''While you Americans are sitting there and getting fat, us Canadians are ready to take over. You know it!

''We're plotting. We've got Bieber, CELINE (DION), me, ALANIS (MORISSETTE). NICK-ELBACK is very strong. TRAGICALLY HIP and JIM CARREY - all coming for you."

KELLY OSBOURNE has confessed she considered getting gastric band surgery like her mother CAPTION Hathaway SHARON OSBOURNE to help her lose weight. The 26-year-old reality TV star has lost three stone after quitting junk food and taking up a strict exercise and healthy eating regime, and has proudly posed for her first-ever bikini shoot on the cover of US magazine Shape.

She said: ''I was always looking for a quick fix or a pill I could take. I even thought about getting a [gastric] band on my stomach. My mother had that surgery and I watched her lose a lot of weight. But we decided it would be better for me to try and slim down naturally."

ANNE HATHAWAY has revealed she longs to star in an action movie.

The Toy Story 3 star, who voices macho spaceman Buzz Lightyear, also joked he was a fan of Barbie's dream house, but admitted the Easy Bake oven fascinated him as it could actually cook. Tim joked: ''I liked Barbie's dream house. That and my Easy Bake oven. ''I actually did like Easy Bake ovens because you could make cakes. With a light bulb. Go figure that out."

Anne EMMY ROSSUM has revealed she has been banned from watching the British version of Shameless, despite starring in the American adaptation.
