Kanye's fur coat, Snoop flies cheap, Peaches gets scummy bf – 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:
Liam Gallagher has launched another bitter attack on his brother Noel, calling him a “fucker” in an interview with NME‘s sister-title Uncut, saying he’s not “arsed” about his bro’s future plans.
“I’m sure it will be all very civilised and grown-up,” the singer said of Noel‘s return. “One of those gigs you can really stroke your chin at. With four rent-a-Scousers wearing shell-suits.”
He added: “I’ve heard his fucking new record ‘cos I fucking sang on half of it. When I was in America for ‘Dig Out Your Soul’. And he swiped some off ‘cos he obviously knew he wanted to do a solo album. So he can talk all the bullshit about, ‘Oh, I was intimidated,’ and all that. Fucking nonsense.”

From the papers:
The tabloid brigade are all in a tiz this morning (January 5), after Paul McCartney‘s girlfriend Nancy Shevell was papped laying a cheeky hand on his bum as the couple strolled on a beach on the Caribbean island of Anguilla (various).
Duffy has come out with a rather mangled description of herself. “I sing for others to enjoy,” she explained. “I have never done this for myself. I am the singer. I don’t do singing. This is who I am. I am the voice. This is me. There’s no separation. My record is me. The music is me. I don’t live for myself. It’s so hard to explain” (Marie Claire).
Stuart Maconie has debunked the myth that the sax solo on Gerry Rafferty‘s ‘Baker Street’ was played by Bob Holness, after both Holness and Maconie started trading on Twitter following the Rafferty’s death yesterday (January 4). “My personal and silly part in a sad story is that as an NME writer I invented the urban myth claiming that Bob played the sax solo on Gerry‘s 1978 hit ‘Baker Street’,” Maconie admitted. “That’s not true” (Daily Mirror).
