Welcome to the Daily Gossip: your daily stop-off to find out what the stars of the music world have been up to in the tabloids and beyond, with the help of plenty of “anonymous sources”.
Today’s top gossip:
Could Gwyneth Paltrow be about to collaborate with Jay-Z? The actress, who has been performing songs from her new film Country Strong recently, revealed her wish on the red carpet at the Oscars ceremony last night (February 27).
Asked which musician she would most like to collaborate with, she mentioned the rapper, who she and hubby Chris Martin are already good pals with, and who she sang with onstage in London in 2006. “I think we’d be a good combination,” she said, adding that he was “a genius” and she’s “his biggest fan”. How could it fail? (various).
From the papers:
Ever the ladies man, Cee Lo Green apparently asked for The Saturdays‘ Rochelle Wiseman‘s phone number after his gig at London club Merah last week. Alas, she only gave him her Twitter details (The Sun).
Peaches Geldof gleefully paraded her latest boyfriend, S.C.U.M.‘s Tom Cohen, in front of the media at Milan Fashion Week (Daily Star).
It’s probably the least of the country’s worries at present, but according to new Wikileaks documents, the likes of Beyonce, Usher and Mariah Carey have all performed lucrative gigs for the family of Libyan dictator Muammar al-Gaddafi (various).
N-Dubz have been hanging out with Red Hot Chili Peppers in LA – both groups are recording there, and according to the red-tops bumped into each other in a studio corridor. Weirdly, they apparently got on so well they started ‘chilling’ in each others’ respective studios (The Sun).
