Shakira, Cheryl Cole, Kings Of Leon in ex-lover tiff – 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:

Happy MondaysShaun Ryder gets our king of the jungle vote after enduring a snake bite on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!. The singer had to undergo medical treatment after a python sank its teeth into his fingers on the bushtrucker trial. Not surprisingly, he screamed plenty of expletives.

From the papers and beyond:

On the subject of unlikely collaborations now, we didn’t see this one coming – Devlin duetting with Paul Weller. The pair sang The Modfather‘s ‘Fast Car/Slow Traffic’ at a recent gig at Brighton Centre. “I had butterflies before but after my first verse I saw hands in the audience and that gave me a lift,” the rapper admitted (The Sun).

Kings Of Leon drummer Nathan Followill has kicked off a catfight with his ex-girlfriend on Twitter. He celebrated Thanksgiving by dissing his former lover. “Happy Thanksgiving everyone,” he wrote. “Except 4 ex-girlfriend, happy skanksgiving. You know who you are.”

On a lighter note, Shakira has splashed a load of cash to help kids affected by the Haiti earthquake, we read. The singer has stumped up £420,000 from a Christmas ad she recently appeared in to help a school in the country and in her homeland Colombia (Daily Record).

Self-indulgence award of the week goes to Cheryl Cole for getting a seventh tattoo scrawled on her lower back. The red-tops continue to obssess over The X Factor‘s judge every move as she flashed “what looked like a ribbon” when she entered the show’s north London studios (various).
