Matt Bellamy's Shockwaves NME Awards drunk antics go viral – Daily Gossip
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:

There was plenty of Shockwaves NME Awards gossip kicking around yesterday (February 24) after the event on Wednesday, but a certain frontman's antics that night are getting even more attention.

We didn't give out a Party Animal Of The Awards trophy, but Muse's Matt Bellamy would have walked away with it hands down.

Having talked about his band's tour plans in a less than coherent manner on the night, the guitar whiz was later seen enjoying a good natter with Hurts at The Ivy after the show.

The conversation quickly turned to the 'Wonderful Life' boys' favourite topic of discussion: 'romance'. But for once it wasn't singer Theo Hutchcraft doing the talking. Instead, according to one of the red-top spies, his bandmate Adam Anderson asked Bellamy for his favourite groupie stories from the over the years. The Muse man is, of course, happily in a relationship now, but recalling his days as a single man he responded: "Oh, I've had fun. You have to go to Italy. The women there are incredible." They've probably already booked plane tickets (The Sun).

Bellamy's antics have already got a following of their own, with a Facebook page, Facebook.com/Drunk.Matt.Bellamy, set up by fans to celebrate his inebriated moments.

He did have a more reflective moment on the night, however. He told one tabloid that he might "write a lullaby album" for his first child (Daily Mirror).

From the papers and beyond:

Carl Barat has yet another project on the go – he's writing a screenplay. Whether it's based on his life in The Libertines or not isn't clear yet (The Sun).

Also heading towards the big screen is Mark Ronson, who has said he is writing the music for the new remake of Arthur, which stars Russell Brand and Helen Mirren. "It's my first time doing a film score and it's something I've wanted to do for a really long time," he said (Daily Mirror).

Professor Green, who walked away with the Best Dancefloor Filler award, has apparently bagged a modelling contract. He's been snapped up by the same agency who currently look after Hurts (The Sun).

Double award winners My Chemical Romance reckon they'll bring a nursery with them next time they tour. Singer Gerard Way said: "I've got a little girl and Frank Iero had twins last year. We're getting a family bus and a crèche" (Daily Star).

Away from Wednesday night's awards action, Lady Gaga took time off from promoting 'Born This Way' to check out Green Day's musical American Idiot in New York. She even stuck around to meet Billie Joe Armstrong, who is currently starring in the show, and was pictured planting a smacker on the knackered-looking frontman (The Sun).

Finally, a host of stars came out in London to check out the new Queen Stormtroopers In Stilettos exhibition at The Truman Brewery for its launch party. Brian May mingled with Foo Fighters, Hurts, comedian Paul Whitehouse and one chap we don't often see schmoozing at music bashes – TV's Dale Winton (or someone who looks a lot like him).

Check back on Monday for the next Daily Gossip.
