Lil Wayne's Twitter hacked, Ronson to wed? – your music gossip stop
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:
It’s been a while since Johnny Borrell popped up on NME‘s radar, so it’s nice to know he’s still on the scene. Unfortunately for him, though, the self-assured frontman’s most recent newsworthy escapade involves an ex-girlfriend, her new beau and a drunken scrap at a Milan fashion party.
Journalist Jeremy Langmead, who was privy to the encounter at Dolce & Gabanna‘s Principe hotel bash, described it as “explosive”. He added: “The fight was over an ex and her new beau, I believe. There were peace talks in the Principe loo at 1am and calm ensued. Good times” (Holy Moly).
From the papers and beyond:
Lil Wayne‘s Twitter page got hacked over the weekend, with the perpetrator posting a series of headline-seeking (and somewhat libellous) claims about what the rapper got up to while in prison last year. The page has now been suspended.
P Diddy‘s always had a bit of a rep for trying his hand at new things, and now he can add ‘comedian’ to his CV too. He performed stand-up at New York‘s Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre to a packed house recently. Perhaps his acting buddy Russell Brand gave him a few tips while the two were on the set of ‘Get Him To The Greek’? (various).
Nevermind that it was released over 25 years ago – Canada has now banned Dire Straits‘ 1985 hit ‘Money For Nothing’ from being played on the radio, because its lyrics include the words “that little faggot” (various).
Is Mark Ronson getting married? His missus Josephine De La Baume was photographed wearing a massive diamond encrusted ring over the weekend, we see in the red-tops. The duo have been known to play similar ‘are they?/aren’t they?’ tricks involving rings on wedding fingers in the past, so who knows? (Purple Magazine).
Adam Ant says he wants to become an advisor to Boris Johnson and David Cameron and help clean up the rougher areas of London, we read. He’s offered to play a few tunes in the capital’s roughest estates (The Sun).
