Mumford & chips, Fiddy Vs Jay-Z, Bobby G's Haiti strop – 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:

Amy Winehouse has reportedly almost finished recording her new album and is set to fly out to Jamaica next week to put down the final touches. However, while she’s said to be planning a party-fuelled trip, her management and record label are keen to keep things on the straight and narrow. “She’s been told it’s not a party,” a source said, “she has to work.” In 2009, Winehouse spent eight months holidaying (and supposedly recording) in St Lucia (The Sun).

From the papers:

The recording of Shane MacGowan‘s Haiti charity single allegedly saw Primal Scream‘s Bobbie Gillespie throw a strop over the arrangement of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins‘I Put A Spell On You’ (The Sun).

The Drums‘ singer Jonathan Pierce says ex-Smiths drummer Mike Joyce invited the band to a recording session with him (Daily Star).

50 Cent claims “Jay-Z‘s not smart enough to be afraid” of him (Daily Mirror).

Owners of Essex chip shop R Mumford & Son have seen a massive increase in business since the success of the similarly named band. Owner Ron Mumford, who is not related to Mumford and Sons‘ frontman Marcus Mumford, said the band are welcome to have free fish and chips any time they’re in the area (The Sun).

Girls Aloud‘s Sarah Harding is holidaying in Barbados (Daily Mirror).
