Calvin Harris attacks Dizzee Rascal over England World Cup song? – Daily Gossip

Coldplay's antiques, Snoop's 'Coronation Street' love, Bieber fancies Cheryl – 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:

Calvin Harris has seemingly dissed his one-time musical partner Dizzee Rascal. The DJ/producer posted a Twitter message linking to Dizzee Rascal‘s performance of new England football song ‘Shout For England’ on Britain’s Got Talent, and wrote: “Fucking hell, did this really happen???”. Though not an obvious attack in itself, it does follow Harris’ stage invasion of The X Factor, before producers threw him out of the studio. Like Britain’s Got Talent, the programme is also the brainchild of Simon Cowell. Harris and Dizzee Rascal collaborated on two UK chart-toppers ‘Dance Wiv Me’ and ‘Holiday’ (Twitter).


From the papers:

Snoop Dogg and Ian Brown have both paid tribute to Coronation Street in a new campaign by Adidas celebrating the soap’s 50th birthday (The Sun).

Ronan Keating holidayed with his children and Boyzone bandmate Keith Duffy‘s family in the south of France (Daily Mirror).

Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow were reunited at the Socceraid football match in Manchester (various).

Coldplay bassist Guy Berryman has started an antiques company with his brother Mark (The Sun).

Justin Bieber says he wants to date Cheryl Cole (Daily Record).
