Welcome to the Daily Gossip: your daily stop-off to find out what the stars of the music world have been up to in the tabloids and beyond, with the help of plenty of "anonymous sources".

Today's top gossip:

Glasvegas frontman James Allan has admitted he had a bit of a breakdown while the band were touring with Kings Of Leon last year. But it wasn't the singer's fault, we read - he's put the blame on a birthday present given to him by his sister Denise.

"The tour with Kings Of Leon came to a shuddering halt," Allan explained. "The last thing I remember was being given two black goldfish by Denise. It was my birthday. I took the fish to the zoo and I was singing The Carpenters' '(They Long To Be) Close To You' [it was actually written by Burt Bacharach - pedantic rock history ed] to the fish 33 floors up in a Chicago hotel. I even took the fish into the bar. I remember sitting on the edge of my bed in my bathrobe with the fish in the tank on my lap, flicking through all the TV channels. God knows what happened after that" (Daily Record).

Wow. Looks like James has got over it, though - Glasvegas have just announced their new line-up and album details.

From the papers:

Collaboration of the century alert: Susan Boyle says she wants to hook up with AC/DC for a version of 'Back In Black' or 'Whole Lotta Rosie' - if the red-tops are to be believed. "I'm ready when you are - I'm headbanging," she said (Daily Star).

It's no secret that The Inbetweeners star James Buckley is into his Britpop, but he's apparently now stepped an inch closer to fully realising his rock star dreams, by playing guitar on Ocean Colour Scene man Steve Cradock's new solo album 'Last Days Of The Old World' (The Sun).

Elsewhere, more hot music news as we read that Avenged Sevenfold singer M Shadows has bought a set of gold pens once owned by Saddam Hussein for £3,200 (The Sun).

Everyone knows P Diddy's parties are somewhat excessive, but perhaps this bathtub-model took things a little too far when she accidentally set her hair on fire while being filmed at one recently. Scroll down and click below for the video.
