Preston: 'My prescription drug hell'- 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:

Former Ordinary Boys frontman Preston has revealed the depths of his drug addiction, which turned him into a "zombie". The singer revealed that at one point he used to wake up with unexplainable blood stains all over his body. "I was doing so many drugs I didn't know who I was. I was a zombie for months," Preston explained. Eventually, he managed to kick the habit - by getting deep with philosophy. "I got engrossed with Malcolm Gladwell and Oliver James. They write accessible books about philosophy and sociology and these kept me sane while going through withdrawal" (The Sun).

From the papers:

Robbie Williams is hooked on Big Brother (Daily Mirror).

Liam Gallagher is a "fantastic babysitter", according to former All Saints singer Shaznay Lewis. The Oasis man looks after her three-year-old, Tyler, every now and then (Closer).

Lily Allen tweeted that she won £3000 while gambling in France recently (Twitter).

Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding donned leather hotpants for the filming of the new St Trinian's film, 'The Legend Of Fritton's Gold' (various).

Kanye West and Jay-Z both filmed appearances in Rihanna's comeback video, 'Run This Town' (Daily Mirror).
