Winehouse is back, Take That man crocked, Jackson's French toast – your music gossip stop

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:

Airline crooner Kanye West says he thinks Coldplay will be seen as better than The Beatles. Speaking about Chris Martin, he said: “The man is a genius – as a performer and a songwriter he is on the same level as John Lennon.” Incredibly, he was talking straightfaced, going on to add: “I honestly think Coldplay are on the same level as The Beatles. In 30 years, when Coldplay are old men, people will look back and say, ‘These guys were more talented than The Beatles.'” We’ll see, Kanye… (The Sun).

From the papers:
