I can still Shak-hear-ya - 28th February

http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,4-2007090536,00.html

"The Latino beauty has pulled out of her second interview in a month with Bizarre, claiming her vocal cords couldn’t cope with the rigours of a 25-minute interview. Though I hear she hasn’t seemed to have the slightest trouble belting out big numbers for more than an hour at a time at gigs during her current European tour."

Perhaps Vicky needs to listen more closely, as far from not having had the "slightest trouble", earlier this month Shakira was forced to cancel one concert in Holland and two in Germany due to having bronchitis.

It's common practice for singers performing a gruelling regime of shows to rest their voice completely between concerts - even to the extent of not speaking, and certainly not for 25 minutes straight - and I would suspect even more so for singers who have not long recovered from a serious infection...

Hi,

Just a heads-up to another Vicky classic this morning.

"THE ALL SAINTS comeback looks doomed.

"New single chas been relegated to a download-only release, their tour was cancelled and MELANIE BLATT and the rest of the band pulled out of a gig on Saturday because of “illness”. "

Victoria Newton: First with all Saturday's showbiz news, straight to you just five days later.

Still, at least she's got the scoop on the single's relegation to download-only. News which appeared in Entertainmentwise (http://www.entertainmentwise.com/news?id=28167) just *three* days ago. And which was taken by them (and their source openly acknowledged) from the previous day's Mirror.

The part I like best is: "But then again... I’m not sure I’m really bothered." Well you're bothered enough to slag her off for being ill. And does this mean that if she wanted an interview now you wouldn't care what she had to say? You have all the makings of a fantastic music journalist, Vicky.

Victoria Newton claiming that Shakira is so bothered by her journalistic powers, there.
