Could we please wake up. It's 2015 for God's sake. It's time to spend some money on why people aren't mentally healthy to come up with solutions to alleviate the suffering. When I perform my show, Sane New World, I invite the audience to have a discussion or ask questions. Three times I've had people stand up and say that they've had cancer and mental illness and when I ask which is worse to them they've all said the depression. One man told me and the audience that with cancer he wanted to live, with depression he wanted to die.
With the quite frankly mass of modern social media and dating apps, meeting the one is quite frankly impossible, but finding 40million bizarre ones, a one night stand or some naughty sexting is just a swipe away.
As the fashion circus leaves town for another season it's a moment to reflect. The fall-out surrounding Kanye West's Spring Summer 2016 Yeezy presentation during New York Fashion Week in September has prompted me to once again comment on catwalk capers. Where to start?
My impression was that New Zealand is a virgin, not yet corrupted by greed and ruthless competition. People here are sweet, not aggressive. Even the birds are friendly. There have never been any predators so even the robins come up and stare at you with absolutely no fear; practically feeding you crumbs
There is no morality to food. It is sustenance, joy, sharing, culture, and just plain fun. We were given taste buds and pleasure centres in our brains for a reason. And bodies that live, breathe, play, and love.
Last week, while promoting new film Suffragette, Time Out asked the First Lady of Fabulous the seemingly superfluous question 'u a feminist, bae?'... Streep responded with this curveball: "I am a humanist. I aim for a nice easy balance."
We all condemned the French magazine who published topless photos of Kate Middleton on holiday a few years ago, but put Justin Bieber in the same position and suddenly it's fair game?
On the eve of the 30th anniversary of Les Miserables in London, let's take a look at 26 highlights and facts from Alfie to Miz!
As an alternative plot twist, how about the following? Matt Damon, whilst stranded on Mars, works out how much his rescue mission will cost. In a moment of enlightened self-sacrifice he realises that thousands of lives on Earth could be saved for the cost of saving him.
When I first saw Demi Lovato's Vanity Fair cover this weekend, I applauded her. As a woman who has battled body confidence issues for most of her life and has spoken extensively about her eating disorder, Lovato has finally made peace with her appearance, celebrating with a naked, un-retouched photoshoot.
People in the UK are starting to take an awful lot more interest in where their goods come from, demanding that we know as much as possible about the provenance of our food, and making our choices accordingly. Most now know that eating free-range eggs and chicken at least shows you care that animals aren't tortured so we can eat.
Chris Moyles, the once-self proclaimed Saviour of Radio 1, has had an interesting few weeks. When his radio comeback was announced in September, the announcement was almost overshadowed by two tiny words featured in the Radio X's playlist - "male focussed"...
Here's another crap misconception. That it's egotistical to love yourself. I was accused of loving myself at school, far from the sad truth that I had a lot of healing to do before I was to understand what it meant to love myself. Now I realise it's something that people say to others when they are threatened by someone's confidence as it reminds them of what little acceptance they have for themselves... I see beauty all around me, in people, places, objects and actions. That's love and it's a very powerful thing!
Fink are going on tour again soon, and the 30 or so people who make up Team Fink are in a flurry of activity. Preparing for a trip like this - almost 40 days on the road, 16 countries and some whopping great venues (Berlin's Tempodrom, London's Forum, Amsterdam's Concertgebouw) - is no joke.
I'll admit I'm a little bit obsessed with Prince, he's an enigma. The man is clearly a music legend, he's sold millions of records and has an army of adoring fans across the world. I play a lot of his records on my Absolute Radio show, and when I do I always sit back and imagine what it must be like to be Prince in real life.
Yesterday Shell announced it was quitting its Arctic drilling programme. Let me just repeat that in case you, like me, couldn't quite fathom this wonderful piece of news: Shell is quitting its hunt for dirty oil in the Arctic. The thing is about these oil companies is they try and make us believe they rule the world, that their tomorrow is the only tomorrow. But today shows that the future can be rewritten. Shell execs might not publicly admit that our movement stopped them - but reading between the lines we can all see public outrage on Arctic drilling was a huge concern for them.
