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 was reportedly beaten up in jail last year – losing his teeth in the process. The former record producer is currently serving a possible life sentence for murdering actress Lana Clarkson, and a friend explained that an incident occurred at Corcoran prison in California when Spector "mouthed off" to a fellow inmate. He is said to have been punched by the other inmate, who the friend described as a "big guy". However, prison authorities say they received no official reports of an altercation (Daily Mirror).

From the papers:

Lady Gaga took her entourage and band to the beach for a BBQ during her New Zealand tour. Naturally, she refused to remove her heels while she was on the sand (Daily Star).

Duffy watched rugby playing boyfriend Mike Phillips' Wales team beat Italy 33-10 on Saturday (March 20) (The Sun).

Lily Allen drove around London in a lime green car (Daily Mirror).
