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:

Lily Allen‘s new boyfriend is a painter and decorator. The singer has shunned a-list stars, millionaires and musicians as her new squeeze, instead choosing to hook up with Londoner Sam Cooper, who, reports confirm, “has no showbiz connections at all”.
Apparently the courting couple went public for the first time this week when they dined out with Allen‘s artist friend Damian Hirst at trendy Mayfair eaterie Scotts. However, as none of the paparazzi knew who Cooper was, he was able to park his car and walk into the restaurant completely ignored (The Sun).

From the papers:

Calvin Harris chilled out in Concert Square, Liverpool (Daily Mirror).

Katy Perry thinks she’s starting to look like Sly Stallone‘s Rocky Balboa character, because she’s been working out so much. She says she’s more of a lover than a fighter though. “I would never fight anyone, unless they wanted to hurt my family” (The Sun).

Florence And The Machine‘s gig rider only consists of a bowl of fruit and round of Mojito cocktails (Daily Star).

Duffy was paid a small fortune to sing a the wedding of an unnamed business entrepreneur on Italy’s Amalfi Coast (Daily Record).
