NME Awards : Best Picture

Lethal Bizzle @NME Awards

Lethal Bizzle may not have won any awards at this years NME Awards, but he does win "Best Picture" for his apt t-shirt saying "Fuck the Brits". It was fitting to have a dig at the Brits at the NME Awards, as the NME Awards is all that the Brits is not.

Meanwhile, The Enemy seemed to make it back safely to Coventry last night - resisting the chance to get blinding drunk at the NME Awards. Instead the lads opted to be sensible and head back into the recording studio today. Below is an interview with The Enemy from last night's NME Awards.

    Eurovision: Let's Get Daz Sampson Back!

    You might remember Daz Sampson from the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest with his rap tune "Teenage Life". While it he may have failed to secure the points, it hasn't stopped him creating a brand new Eurovision tune. "Do A Little Dance" is an infectious song that will have you hooked after just one play. Sadly the BBC don't agree and have banned it from making the short list, according to

    I say, "let's get Daz Sampson back in Eurovision" - whoever you are, where ever you are - download the song and promote it however you see fit. Check out the video I made today in honour of this true Eurovision hit that may never be.......................

  • Man Dies Stuffing His Face!

    A 34 year old graphic design student from Birmingham has died after choking to death. Adam Deeley was among guests eating the left over fairy cakes at a Swansea nightclub last Monday, where a charity event had been taking place earlier that evening.

    Five fairy cakes became lodged in Mr Deeley's throat and he began to choke but was pronounced dead at 02:30am when paramedics and first aiders were unable to clear his airways.

    Let that be a warning to us all!

    Ireland Enter A Turkey For Eurovision!

    Dustin the Turkey

    With just three months until the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest, Ireland has caused the biggest stir of the year by entering a puppet as it's chosen artist. Dustin the Turkey was the winner of the vote this weekend and could go on to cause the biggest upset in Eurovision history - unless he gets banned before!

    Hat's off to the Irish, who have come up with a great idea. Let's face it - Ireland had only entered crap songs in recent years anyway! Maybe the UK could take a feather from Dustin, and enter something wild and wacky for this years contest.

    Check out the funny video here:

    Girls Aloud: Can't Speak French - Video

    Girls Aloud single "Can't Speak French" is out on March 17th 2008 and the girls look as good as ever in this video - which you can now watch below. The single is not as good as previous singles but still worthy to become a hit.

    Neighbours: Set For Channel Five Death

    Neighbours looks set for a slow death after moving to it's new TV home on Channel Five. Despite an expensive advertising campaign, the Aussie soap opera has already started losing viewers after the switch over from BBC1.

    Although the initial 2.5 million viewing figures was a boost to the usual Channel Five slot, 300,000 viewers had deserted the soap on Tuesday and another 500,000 ditched the soap when it moved to it's new home on Channel Five this week.

    It's only a matter of time before the aging soap slumps to 1m and becomes a thing of the past - just a robmacca prediction for 2009.

  • Shakira Sells Her Bra!

    Shakira is not hard up, despite selling off her bra's on ebay this week. The singer is raising money for the Bare Feet Foundation by selling off the jewelled bra worn during last years tour, it was designed by Roberto Cavalli (who also designed the Spice Girls costumes).

    More than $60,000 (£30,700) has been raised so far, with one fan paying $14,100 (£7,200) to meet Shakira.

    Expect Britney Spears to sell off her knickers in the coming weeks...........

    The Feeling: Dress As Spice Girls

    The Feeling @ G-A-Y as the Spice Girls

    The Feeling made a return to the music world with a surprise for the London crowd at G-A-Y on Saturday. The Feeling showed their humourous side as they dressed up as the Spice Girls as they promoted their new single. Their new single "I Thought It Was Over" has just entered the charts at number 12 yesterday.

    Maybe this will take a bit of heat off the Spice Girls who have had alot of flack recently for ending their world tour.

    Music Gossip

    Amy Winehouse looking better at rehab. Pic: Splash/Daily Mail

    * Amy Winehouse popped out of rehab to renew her American visa and looked much better than when she went in. Maybe she will be ready for the Grammys on the 10th February, where Winehouse is nominated for six awards.

    * The real reason the Spice Girls have ended their reunion early has been revealed in the Daily Mail, and it is not about the money, family committments or bickering - but Posh's feet! According to the Daily Mail Victoria Beckham has bunions on her feet and that may have been the reason for the "split". Check out the story, complete with bunion pictures HERE.

    * Cheryl Cole from Girls Aloud has been hogging the headlines recently, with tears all round as she copes with cheating husband Ashley Cole. Tissues have been at the ready as Cheryl has been on the phone to Posh Spice several times for advice. Meanwhile Ashley has crying down the phone, begging Cheryl to come back.

    *Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding must read this blog because we predict the demise of Girls Aloud this year and it seems Sarah is trying to set up a solo music career for when the fateful day arrives. Prehaps the whole Cole story is speeding things along.

    *The Atomic Kitten single "Anyone Who Had A Heart" has failed to enter the Top 75 in the UK charts, what the papers fail to say is the song was only out on download last week and entered the charts at #77, so a bit harsh on the trio. They did look stunning at the G-A-Y performance at the weekend though!

  • Brit Soldiers Go Wild In Cyprus

    Good to see the British Army are enjoying themselves at Ayia Napa in Cyprus, nine lads ended up being charged after a drunken night out on the town. According to Bedrock Pub, fighting spilled into the bar leaving three soldiers and two Greek Cypriots injured as furniture and bottles were smashed up.

    Sounds like a normal night on the town in the UK to me, but at least Cyprus has a bit more heat. I bet Prince Harry wished he had been there for that night out!

    Spice Girls: Tour Ends This Month

    Mel C is leaving the Spice Girls at the end of the month according to The Sun today. The newspaper claims Sporty Spice has had enough of touring with the Spice Girls and has pulled plans to visit Australia, China, South Africa and Argentina as part of "The Return of the Spice Girls" world tour. Meanwhile the rest of the girls commitments means the tour must end this month.

    Read the full story HERE.

    The official Spice Girls website made this statement today:

    "......Due to the phenomenal demand for tickets in the UK and the US along with the touring logistics for such a massive production it was not possible to fit everything in. As the girls return to normal family life and the kids go back to school they are reviewing all the options, who knows what the future might bring!

    The girls said: “We’ve had such an amazing time over the last 3 months. It’s been incredible being back together and seeing our fans again. We want to thank everyone who came to see us. It was all so mad the first time round, so we’ve really been able to appreciate it properly this time. There have been so many highlights and good times that we know it will be hard to be apart after Toronto. Really sorry if we didn’t get to see you this time round. We all have other commitments in our lives now but who knows what will happen next."

    Fans have reacted angrily across Australasia at the breaking news , which has shocked many. The "Greatest Hits" album went to #1 in Australia when it was released before Christmas and now fans feel betrayed because the shows will not now take place. Spice Girls fans vented their anger on a popular forum, saying the Spice Girls had only reformed for money and not for the fans.
