Today’s top gossip:
It looks like The Kills' Jamie Hince and his good lady Kate Moss have cut down on their partying ways. The rider at their Glasgow gig last night (April 15) included caramel wafers, herbal tea, bananas, salad and a coffee pot with some organic milk. The band requested a mere 24 bottles of beer, one bottle of scotch, a bottle of vodka and a bottle of wine.
The pair are also becoming tougher on liggers. A source said: "Kate and her people weren't happy that so many people were on their guestlist as they wanted to avoid a Babyshambles-style media circus. There has been a lot of interest in them in recent months and they felt it was time to have things a bit more low-key" (Daily Record).

James Blunt was spotted leaving London's Royal Chelsea Hospital after playing a gig for the Chelsea War Pensioners (The Sun).
Lily Allen and her newly bleached blonde locks checked out The Clash bassist Paul Simonon's art at an exhibition in London, buying three pictures (Daily Star).
