Notes On Trudie Styler’s Removal To New York

PA-15747397

TRUDIE  Styler, the jet-set eco-warrior and Mrs Sting, is planning to up her occasional use of aviation fuel” and leave the UK for good. She has told the Times’s Helena de Bertodano from her home in New York:

“I don’t want to criticise my country but there are times I feel that Sting and myself have been treated unkindly [by the British press]…  feel much more relaxed here, not having to second guess myself.

“Sting and I need to think what our relationship is to England in the long term or whether we will make a permanent move here. There are a lot of things we love about England but I do like the optimism of the US, the feeling that whatever you make of yourself is ‘good on you’.”

Courtney Stodden Stars On FashionMINGA.Com Red Carpet

WE are indebted to D-listed for pointing us towards  LA’s FashionMinga.com.

WHAT IS FASHION MINGA?

Is it a fashion site for mingas?

Fashion Minga is a collaboration of designers, performers, and tastemakers coming together to celebrate the various components that inspire fashion: music, dance, color, shape and visual elements.

But Minga..

“Minga” is an Ecuadorian term for “a community coming together to work for the benefit of all”. 

So. It isn’t just a British term for, as the Urban Dictionary defines:

a male or female who fell out of the ugly tree at birth and hit every branch on the way down
God that girl/boy is so minging she really needs to work on her personality

PA-7948792

DAN WOOTTON, Head of Showbiz –  no small title when you grew up in New Zealand – has news on Katie Price’s marriage to Alex ‘Reidinator’ Reid, the walking Toffee Crisp.

We learn that Alex would dress as a woman called Roxanne. Katie would become Lady J.

In an exclusive interview, Alex tells The Sun on Sunday: “Katie says there were three people in our marriage, but there were actually four — me, her, Roxanne and Lady J. When she was Lady J, I had to stop her from doing things. She became very smutty and was an exhibitionist. I’d have to hold her back to stop her from taking her clothes off, even if we were in public.”

Vinyl Music Sales At A 10 Year High

PA-17280380

VINYL bores are a terrible, terrible thing. However, some nice news is that vinyl sales are at a 10 year high. Driving demand are releases from Daft Punk, Arctic Monkeys and David Bowie (and a whole bunch of great compilations and reissues).

Figures are showing that records have crossed the half-million mark already in 2013, which is the first time that’s happened since 2003. Since last year, sales have doubled.

Naturally, the amount of records sold is rather modest, but still encouraging. Music fans have bought 550,000 records thus far, according to analysis of Official Charts Company data by recording industry body the BPI.

10 people who can replace Gary Barlow on the X Factor

PA-17892700

SO, Gary Barlow is quitting The X Factor is he? Naturally, that’s the most exciting thing that’s actually happened during this year’s oddly tedious talent show.

After three years as a judge, he’s decided that he’s going to go back to being a singer and poking at the ivories and hopefully never, ever covering Smells Like Teen Spirit again.

He’s not been too amazing on the show itself. After all, he’s the arsehole that thrust Frankie Cocozza and Christopher Maloney in our faces.

It begs the question – who can replace Gary Barlow?

John Walters tell us the 10 things every role model needs

john-walters role model

I LOATHE the phrase ‘role model’. It’s not quite as annoying as ‘holistic’ but it comes close. Footballers have only got to spit out of turn or dry roast a glamour model and they are cast as bad role models. Who amde them good role models? No-one can be certain.

I was once on a Sky News show where the debate was about Kate Moss. Was she a good role model of all young girls. Well, she was a model, still is. Her role was in being a model who posed for magazines and got off her face. As such, I noted, she was very good at it. Young kids who wanted to grew up to take their clothes off for a living, wear someone else’s and get mullered could do a lot worse than take tips from Kate. The one note of warning was that they would not look as good as Kate. She can make the dry heaves, DTs and clammy skin look good.

Boris Johnson race gaffe? London mayor tells Chinese Harry Potter’s Scottish lover Cho Chang was a foreigner

PA-17899363

BORIS Johnson entered stage left and went into his usual act of being a hapless music hall entertainer stumbling upon sound policy. The London Mayor, for it is he, was appearing as Bozza at Peking University. In an effort to cement Sino-Anglo relations he noted that Harry Potter’s lover was Chinese:

…according to JK Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter novels, was Harry Potter’s first girlfriend? Who is the first person he kisses? That’s right, Cho Chang – who is a Chinese overseas student at Hogwarts school.
Ladies and gents I rest my case. I don’t think I need to argue any further, that is the future of Britain and of London.

Stanley Kubrick explains the meaning of 2001: A Space Odyssey

2001 A Space Odyssey kubrick

STANLEY Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey was a film about… Well, what is about? In 1969, Kubrick told Joseph Gelmis:

You begin with an artifact left on earth four million years ago by extraterrestrial explorers who observed the behavior of the man-apes of the time and decided to influence their evolutionary progression. Then you have a second artifact buried deep on the lunar surface and programmed to signal word of man’s first baby steps into the universe—a kind of cosmic burglar alarm. And finally there’s a third artifact placed in orbit around Jupiter and waiting for the time when man has reached the outer rim of his own solar system.

When the surviving astronaut, Bowman, ultimately reaches Jupiter, this artifact sweeps him into a force field or star gate that hurls him on a journey through inner and outer space and finally transports him to another part of the galaxy, where he’s placed in a human zoo approximating a hospital terrestrial environment drawn out of his own dreams and imagination. In a timeless state, his life passes from middle age to senescence to death. He is reborn, an enhanced being, a star child, an angel, a superman, if you like, and returns to earth prepared for the next leap forward of man’s evolutionary destiny.

That is what happens on the film’s simplest level. Since an encounter with an advanced interstellar intelligence would be incomprehensible within our present earthbound frames of reference, reactions to it will have elements of philosophy and metaphysics that have nothing to do with the bare plot outline itself.
