James Morrison is penniless, Naomis got a witch doctor and theres a mini-Robbie in the making
Spare a thought - and possibly some change - for James Morrison.
The guitar-strummer says hes skint, despite selling 1.5 million copies of his debut album, Undiscovered. Speaking to the Daily Mirror, he said: "I'm not totally skint, but I might as well be. It takes about two years for the royalties to come. Other than the coat I just bought, I cant afford anything else." Is that the sound of violins wailing in the background?
Meanwhile Naomi Campbell has reportedly hired a Brazilian witch doctor to help cure her tantrums.
According to the Daily Star, the 36-year-old supermodel is a passionate follower of a strange South American religious sect called Candomble, in which African gods are worshipped and chickens sacrificed.
One of Brazils leading witch doctors, Tuca Franshini, said: "She got very interested. She is passionately involved in the roots of our African culture". Sources close to the model say he has become her spiritual guide, and is helping her to deal with her temper. Good luck mate!
And finally heres a piece of news that should send a shiver down the spine of Robbie Williams fans everywhere - and possibly Robbie himself.
X-Factor greaseball Ray Quinn is apparently being lined up to play Robster in a new Take That musical planned for London's West End.
The pint-sized scouser, who came second to Leona Lewis in the TV talent show, was described by Simon Cowell as a young Robbie Williams during auditions, and names the star as his absolute hero and inspiration. He told The Sun: "Take That: The Musical sounds like a great idea. I cant wait. What an amazing honour to be asked to play someone who has had so much influence on me over the past few years." We're sure Robbies over the moon.
