Robbie's nursery, Liam's 'Pup Idol', Faithless debut 'prommercial' – 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:
Pete Doherty has been photographed eating hypodermic needles – but only as part of a new collection for French photographer Steve Wells. The snapper, who is Paris-based, wrote on Flickr that Doherty was “having a drink at my local cafe, so I showed him some of the series [called À Table] and asked if he would pose for me. I was surprised by his honesty in choosing to eat needles. Under all the bullshit, he seems a genuine nice, intelligent guy”. All of the other shots in the series show people eating unusual things like credit cards, maps and paint (Stevewells-photo.com).
From the papers:
Liam Gallagher judged a dog competition – Pup Idol – at his local pub in Hampstead, north London on Saturday (August 7) (The Sun).
Faithless have teamed up with Fiat to create what they’re calling the world’s first ‘prommercial’ – a cross between a promo video and a commercial. The new video for their single ‘Feelin Good’ – featuring the car – will premiere at 9pm (BST) on Channel 4 on August 15. Elena Bernardelli, marketing director of Fiat Group Automobiles UK said: “We’re thrilled to be launching the first ever music/brand ‘prommercial’. No other car brand has co-created a music video where the story has been written with the car and band as equal partners.”
