Alex Turner Vs Ron Jeremy, Beth Ditto's Paris stroll, amazing Jackson photo – 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:
Kanye West received a verbal kicking from Taylor Swift‘s mother after the rapper’s much-criticised outburst at the MTV VMAs in New York on Sunday (September 13). West stormed the stage as Swift collected the award for Best Female Video, declaring that it should have gone to Beyonce instead. Swift‘s mother asked to speak to the rapper backstage after the incident, and she allegedly “tore into him”, according to a source. However, West is said to have refused to back down, continuing to state that the gong had gone to the wrong person. Luckily, Beyonce‘s dad Matthew was on hand to comfort Swift‘s mother – and he also organised for Beyonce to invite Swift onstage later in the evening to “have her moment” (People).
From the papers:
Alex Turner‘s girlfriend Alexa Chung was propositioned by porn star Ron Jeremy at the MTV VMAs (The Sun).

Whitney Houston has revealed that her addiction to crack cocaine got so bad that she forgot she was a singer. “I didn’t think about the singing part anymore. I’d totally forgotten about that life,” she said (Oprah).
A 2003 photograph showing 151 members of Michael Jackson‘s family posing for a giant family snap has been leaked. Jackson stands in the middle of the picture, which also features his brother Jermaine, father Joe and mother Katherine (Daily Mirror).
