Today’s top gossip:
Kings Of Leon reportedly almost got into a punch-up with Groove Armada, according to one half of the electro duo. Tom Findlay revealed that he squared up to drummer Nathan Followill when they arrived onsite at last month’s V Festival after he objected to the Followills‘ security preventing him from going to his dressing room. “I gave the worldwide one-fingered sign of dislike as the cars went past,” he said. “The last one stopped, the drummer got out making ‘come on then’-type gestures. I said, ‘Come on then’ and he went back behind his bodyguards and said, ‘I want them removed.'” (Daily Mirror).

Liam Gallagher has been offering Professor Green some singing tips. The rapper said he met the former Oasis frontman at a party recently and he urged him to stop rapping. “Liam spun me round and said, ‘I like your tones, I don’t give a fuck about your rapping but I like your tones. You’ve got a good voice,'” Green said. The rapper also heaped praise on the singer who he described as his childhood hero. “He shouted, ‘Green’ then put his hand out to shake mine, I went to shake it and he started air boxing,” the rapper added. “I was like, ‘Do you want to shake my hand or punch me?’ But the banter was wicked, he’s a real top bloke,” (The Sun).
