Pete Doherty gets a QPR gift, Katy Perry's body art, Madonna's cocaine video – 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:

Following The Sun‘s ongoing exclusives with Amy Winehouse ex-husband this week, The Daily Star have joined the game by recruiting the singer’s ex-boyfriends. According to Alex Claire, Winehouse liked sex in risky places and was even more turned on when they were caught. “We were kicked out because we were getting it on in the back row,” he explained. “Amy was astride me and we were warned a couple of times. Being told off got her going even more.”
Claire also claimed that the singer was also into bondage, saying “she begged me to tie her up”. Another former ‘lover’, Alex Haines, said the singer was “as addicted to sex as she was to drugs” (Daily Star).

From the papers:
