Phil Spector's wigs confiscated in prison - Daily Gossip
Welcome to the Daily Gossip: your daily stop-off to find out who in the world of music has been up to what.

Today’s top gossip:

Phil Spector isn't taking to prison life very well. The producer - who was jailed last Friday (May 29) for 19 years for the murder of actress Lana Clarkson - has apparently had his collection of bizarre wigs confiscated by prison staff in his California jail. He's asked for a hat to wear in their place.

A well-placed anonymous source said: "Prison is a living hell for Spector. He is finding it difficult to cope." (Daily Star).

From the papers:

The Kings Of Leon chaps called Victoria Beckham a "chump" (Daily Star).

Blur's Alex James and Lily Allen have become models for the National Portrait Gallery. Both appear on posters in the Take Another Look campaign, highlighting famous people's life changes (Daily Mirror).

Mark Ronson has been boasting about his recent production work with Duran Duran, saying it "sounds like fucking 'Rio' and 'Planet Earth' all over again" (Daily Star).

Robbie Williams' dad Pete Conway is making a guest appearance on local Stoke band The Cameleonz' new single 'Should I Stay' (Daily Star).

Boyzone want to work with Lily Allen's producer Greg Kurstin (Daily Star).

E-mailed in from NME.COM users:

Pete Doherty helped launch the Shine club-night at London's The Den and Centro venue by playing an acoustic set there – but his microphone wasn't working so it was even more acoustic than normal (from Steve).
