He's sold over 50million records and counting and transcends geographical boundaries and age barriers. He is the Michael Jordan of R&B. But don't take my word for it. Check out the facts...
I had initial concerns that a Neighbours' audience might not really go for my anarchic style of comedy, but my fears were unfounded - the show was well received. Britain gobbled up dissent. I felt at home. I would be back.
When I wasn't working in the past I'd feel obligated to start cramming myself with information; what disasters are happening in the world war-wise, airplane-crash wise, inflation-wise, hurricane-wise and Jeremy Clarkson-wise; the list is endless. When I don't work I start feeling like, "Dear God, who will want to see me if I don't have news or gossip to spew out?"
It was not Danny Cohen or Tony Hall or Oisin Tymon that killed Top Gear. It was the man who made it in the first place. I am a big fan of his work but, based on the evidence we have heard over the past few weeks, I am not such a big fan of the man any more.
From my perspective, celebrities (like Clarkson) are admired and looked up to by countless individuals. And as a celebrity, one should do one's best to live above reproach; they should do everything possible to meet those expectations.
You cannot go round hitting people because you don't get the steak you wanted. Sorry it that makes me sexist, PC or humourless! And if someone is on a final warning as was much trumpeted re Clarkson last year, then that's it. You can't get an even more yellow card than that.
In my own personal experiences as a coach, changing the perception or story of the situation which creates the anxiety can be very effective. So often we forget where the anxiety came from in the first place.
Cardenas is a leading man, not only in his talent but in his soul. It's beautiful to witness and I can't wait for the rest of the world to see the light inside of him. Luckily, I don't think the world with be waiting much longer.
Here at Ovarian Cancer Action we applaud Angelina Jolie's decision to announce that she has had her ovaries removed and are anticipating another wave of the 'Angelina Effect', which saw a dramatic increase in the number of women referred for genetic testing after Angelina announced that she had undergone a double mastectomy in 2013.
My relationship with Eurovision has always been ambivalent. There were so many bad memories as well as good ones associated with it... Particularly as the BBC of the time presented their cold face of moral rectitude in censuring me for being named in the divorce case of someone I believed I was engaged to and who turned out to already have a wife. Rolf Harris, his manager, his director and the BBC conspired to have me removed from his TV show in which I was presenting the six Eurovision songs to the viewers. They did not want me to harm his reputation as a family entertainer...
While Clarkson's true-to-form casual attitude to the 'fracas' and bravado to the subsequent BBC action of suspending him might give the impression that no damage has really been done, PR-wise, many media experts would disagree.
If Kanye isn't quite to your refined taste either, and you're 100% positive that you don't want to witness his headline set, then I'm sure you'd be able to find alternative entertainment at the festival, right? As anyone who has been to the festival will tell you, there's a whole other world to Glastonbury than the Pyramid Stage!
If we can all agree on anything, it's that Kanye takes himself very, very seriously, and he's not a man who's going to mess up the biggest performance of his career so far, at one of the most famous festivals in the world. Don't believe me? Here's why he'll blow everyone away...
The reality is being called an idiot, a bigot, a racist, a homophobe, a transphobe, an ableist, a misogynist, a misandrist or anything else isn't restricting your freedom of speech it's a group trying to use shame to make you conform to their world view. The question is, do you care?
Let me be free. Let me be me! Don't make me old, with your thinking and words about how I should be. You don't have to come to my shows. I am giving tremendous energy with my voice, because that is me. Get my energy or shut up. A critic of my show I did on my 80th birthday. You wanted me to be coming in at the same time on the top of the bars with the tracks. Well, I like to syncopate my voice to come in before or after the music notes, not right on top of the tracks, you see. That's done in classical music, also. Remember? Yes.
"I've always been driven by what people want and not what I like," says Pete Waterman OBE. "I'm lucky enough to have come into this business seeing The Beatles before they were The Beatles, when they were John Lennon and The Silver Beetles.
