The Madia: Mad's mob flick - 21st July,,4-2007330718,00.html

A quick note to start - saying Timbaland equates to 'gangster' is about as accurate as saying Ronan Keating equates to 'thrash metal'. But onto other matters - Chris Paciello and the film Madonna apparently wants to make about his life.

"In the early Nineties Madge was completely smitten with Paciello, who worked as a “nightclub investor” at the time.
She was introduced to the tough her best pal INGRID CASARES and started a passionate two-year relationship."

There were rumours - never confirmed - that Madonna and Paciello were dating. It was in 1997, not the 'early nineties', and they were rumours which lasted for about 2 months, not 2 years.

"My well-placed Madonna source said: “He led Madonna astray in 1992/1993 and most of her friends were unhappy about their relationship at the time."

I dread to think where this source is 'placed', as according to their timeline, Madonna was hanging out with him at the same time he was murdering people on behalf of the Mafia in New York, a year or two before he even moved to Miami and met Ingrid Casares - they didn't even meet until 1995.

"But I can reveal that following his release she has met him three times in the past six months to discuss making a movie about his life with her film company Maverick. A shortlist of stars has been drawn up for the project including MARK WAHLBERG, JOHN CUSACK and star of massive American sci-fi series Heroes MILO VENTIMIGLIA."

This all seemingly despite the fact that a well-received film has already been made about it, starring none other than Mark Wahlberg's brother, Donnie. It was shown on TV in the US in March 2007. Mark Wahlberg was attached to a similar project that fell through in 2004.

New Kasabian EP is bang on - 18th July,,4-2007330097,00.html

"KASABIAN have capped an epic summer by announcing a surprise new EP — and the title track Fast Fuse has blown me away. I had the first listen to Fast Fuse yesterday and it is straight out of the rock and roll top drawer."

"the first listen", eh? I can only assume that means that nobody was listening to Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show on Monday night when he played it? Or XFM when they played it that night too? Even Kasabian's PR people sent out an email to thousands of people with the image above on Monday evening, to let fans know it was being played.

This "surprise new EP" has also been on the release schedules since the end of June, and fans on their official forum have been talking about it for a couple of weeks...

Simple one today - the picture on the left isn't Stephen Belafonte, it's Mel B's ex husband Jimmy Gulzar. It's almost like Vicky is saying they all look the same! Click the pic to make it large.

James goes Back To Blunt - 14th July,,4-2007320575,00.html

"But James flew me out to his £1miilion Ibiza hideaway to hear his new songs - and insists he is relaxed about the expectations on him to deliver another chart-topping triumph."

Yes, James did fly Vicky all that way. She just forgets to mention that it was along with FORTY FIVE other hacks from various sources. Not exactly the one-on-one exclusive hearing she's implying...
