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:

Pink has taken on the British royal family in a row over animal rights.


The ‘So What’ singer is livid that neither The Queen nor Prince William have replied to her letters demanding that the royal guards bearskins be replaced with synthetic materials, and that the Prince quit bloodsports.

She said: “It’s a bit rude that they didn’t reply isn’t it? I don’t get why we can’t question people just because of their position in society. I don’t care if they have a crown. One or two Canadian bears are killed to make each hat and that is totally unnecessary” (Live magazine).
