This time, it was Ruth's turn to surprise some assembled guests – about 150 of them.

For her wedding last Saturday, she was not only walked down the aisle of St. Mary Magdalen Church in Ripley, England, by her dad, but she also hired him as her wedding singer for the reception at his Surrey mansion, reports the Daily Mail – which says the rock star, 66, sang for an hour.

Eric Clapton is coming clean about his addictions in the '70s. "I know that when I was a full-blown practicing alcoholic, everyone used to walk around me on eggshells," the rock legend, 54, said in an interview with London's Sunday Times. "There were times when I just took sex with my wife by force and thought that was my entitlement. I had absolutely no concern for other people at all, and I think that what happens in a family is everyone starts to doctor their own roles to make it bearable to live that way," he said. Clapton was interviewed in Antigua, the Caribbean island where he founded Crossroads Center, a clinic to treat drug and alcohol abuse.
