Date: 22nd April 2001
Acclaimed actress CAMERON DIAZ received what she's described as her most honourable accolade yet - the celebrity best at burping award.
The CHARLIE'S ANGELS (2000) star had her belching talents pitched against DESTINY'S CHILD's KELLY ROWLAND, JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, BRITNEY SPEARS and AARON and NICK CARTER, and proved hers to be the one worthy of the coveted award.
A stunned audience at yesterday's (21APR01) NICKELODEON KIDS' CHOICE AWARDS in Santa Monica, California, sat bemused as they were treated to video-recorded replays of their favourite stars expelling gas from their mouths. But they eventually warmed to the strange contest, cheering with delight at the end, when the sexy THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY (1999) star came out triumphant.
An excited Diaz says, "This is one of my proudest moments! I will continue striving forward to give you the best burps I can!" (RGS/WN/NFA)
