Amy 'dating George Foreman', Lily goes underwear shopping– 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 is to collaborate with Towers Of London guitarist Kristian Marr at a London art show on October 23. Doherty has been working on an acoustic set with Marr to perform at the show, which is in aid of Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy charity. The night, which is called Rock Renaissance, also features artists, including New Yorker Phil Stein, and London-based Grant Kennedy (Rockren.co.uk).
From the papers:
Amy Winehouse has apparently got a new boyfriend – boxer George Foreman. The singer, who divorced Blake Fielder-Civil earlier this year, revealed details of the relationship to fellow patients at The London Clinic, where she is recovering from a breast enlargement operation. However, Winehouse‘s new squeeze isn’t actually 60-year-old legendary boxer (and grilling aficionado) Foreman, but one of his five sons, who all happen to share their father’s name. The singer is going out with George Foreman III, a 26-year-old, 17-stone reality TV star who – like his dad – is also partial to a bit of ringside action (Daily Star).
Madonna says her divorce to Guy Ritchie made her have suicidal thoughts. “I may have thrown myself off a building,” she said. “I think work saved me and I’m very grateful that I had work to do” (Rolling Stone).
Paul Simonon and Patti Smith were both at the Frieze Art Fair in London (Independent).
