Robbie Williams' doggy parties, DiCaprio's date with Dizzee, Lily Allen's new admirer – 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:
La Roux‘s Elly Jackson says she feels bad because her album has been received better than that of rival Little Boots. The bequiffed singer said the reaction that has greeted Little Boots‘ album ‘Hands’ was “unfair”, adding that she doesn’t like it when new acts receive too much hype early on in their careers.
“Hype can be a very dangerous thing, it can accelerate people’s expectations,” she said. “We felt the same about our album but we have got away with it.” Jackson added that she’s not keen on pop acts who employ a myriad of different songwriters for their records. “It’s strange to me that some bands’ first albums are recorded with 10 different artists. You end up thinking ‘Well, what have you actually done here?'” (Daily Star).
From the papers:
Victoria Beckham is set to appear as a judge on ‘American Idol’ (Daily Mirror).
