Adele was brought up by a single mum who struggled for money but provided her daughter with a stable and loving home. That Adele is now wanting to do the same should be supported and applauded, not attacked as a sign of selfishness. It is the egotistical rock star who wants to play God that is selfish.
So after revisiting Fatima I gave the other Elgo Records musicians a listen while browsing artwork by the visual artists signed to the label. Let me show you what I found.
You shouldn't be able to get rich because you bought a house for a pittance in 1974 that's now, all of a sudden, worth a fortune. Property in the UK today is a lottery that doesn't sell any tickets to the poorest. That's unfair, and, mansion tax or no mansion tax, it ought to change.
I started my journey to publicise the book in New York. Everyone tells me they love New York, to me it's a gang rape on the senses. I want to confess war crimes after being kept up all night listening to trash trucks clanging. I took the subway late one night after a show, waited two hours for the right train and witnessed bedlam; feral people were howling like wolves...
It's time for a break, an adventure. Time to trek up a mountain and feel tiny and insignificant. Time to lay under the stars and watch the sun set and rise. The everyday beautiful things that we take for granted because we're eyes down, focused on career, money and the next big opportunity. Time to refresh the brain and get some fresh perspective.
To the paparazzi who took it upon themselves to get up in Solange's face for the money shot, the one where the panic-stricken newlywed is being covered up by her sister, Beyoncé, in the back seat of a car? I loathe you and your total disregard for her privacy. l refuse to acknowledge the grainy photos that highlight her discomfort, because, you know what? It's mean.
No stranger to reality TV and already a successful businesswoman, Gemma Collins clearly has some idea of what she is doing. The truth detection consultant and cynic in me wonders if Bobby Norris' best friend knows her audience better than we think, because although the anxiety is real her response to it does seem to be slightly disproportionate
In the Cath Kidson filled kitchen, we find dear Ed; flailing about as he simultaneously tries to get his soufflé to rise; and convince Dappy, E L James, and Joeys Essex and Barton to play ball over VAT reform.
My Mum has a theory that she's not a great cake baker. I beg to differ as her coffee and walnut is the stuff of dreams; pillowy soft sponge with just the right amount of bitter coffee and almost buttery walnuts. A huge slice and a cup of strong black coffee is my pick me up heaven.
Documentary film is a vital component in holding both governments and corporations to account. In celebrating the documentaries that impact our society we help to keep the legacy of these films and their campaigns alive.
We need to hold all perpetrators of misogyny to account - to the same standards - regardless of whether they happened to have an otherwise likeable persona or an influential corporation guiding them through their latest crisis.
So why do I feel a bit weird about it? Like does anyone else think she looks ridiculously out of proportion? Am I the only one who thinks that an attractive human being is one whose head, legs and middle all look like they belong to the same person?
Butts and bumps ruled the MTV EMAs - with curvy host Nicki Minaj having the last laugh as she's in talks to have her own show.
Musicians (people playing instruments), are not used much at all anymore on pop recordings or on the songs that were presented on the trending music page of SoundCloud meaning the music now comes from machines, usually with vocals over the top. Again, everyone using the same machines.
Khloe Kardashian has been facing a huge Twitter backlash after posting a meme which reads; 'The only KKK to ever let black men in' with a photograph of herself, her sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kim Kardashian-West as the background.
It's no secret that we're extremely connected, some of us even online-addicts. We mindlessly trail social media sites, taking in everything that flickers in front of our eyes, some helpful, some not. The 'belfies', yoga poses you couldn't even do if you were Stretch Armstrong and tiny, everything-free meals; well, that stuff comes under not so helpful.
