It’s amazing that I will be writing the Christmas issue soon! Where do the years go to? My mother always said to me, after the age of 21 the years just fly by. God she was right!
It’s only when you look at the Guinness Book of Hit Singles and not only do you see the number of artistes that have been and gone, but how long some artistes have been around, take for instance Paul McCartney and The Rolling Stones, they were in the charts when I was tiny little boy!
The there’s artiste like George Michael still have hit records after being around twenty odd years or more! But of course you get the casualties as well, some have been one hit one wonders but others ruined their own careers thinking that they were invincible; one of those who I always rated was Terence Trent D’arby, who just seemed to go up his own backside. There are many others in recent times, especially the realty TV “Stars” plus all the Pop Idol/Stars/Fame Academy etc.
How many of them are still around? Even I am having a metal block here trying to think of some names.
CHRIS EVANS AND BILLIE PIPER
I see that Billie Piper and Chris Evans’ marriage is on the rocks! Apparently she went out with her mates to celebrate her 22 birthday, whilst Chris stayed at home tending to his chickens!
It’s a shame really, whilst I have never met Chris Evans, so I can’t really speak for what he is like, although I did used to frequent the same pub from time to time. As far as Billie goes, I always found her a nice girl and I do think that she is very beautiful, even though most people don’t think she is. I must admit I did find it strange that she married Chris Evans, although it might have been a rebound from her break up with a certain boy band member, who of course is no longer mentioned as he and the band have disappeared.
I do hope that they can resolve their differences.

LIZA MINNELLI and VICTORIA
Apparently according to Popbitch, Liza Minnelli always serves KFC chicken at her dinner parties. Madonna, Tony Bennett and Barbra Streisand have been among the lucky guests.
They also say that Victoria Beckham frequents Pizza Hut in Harlow, which is in Essex, where apparently she eats only from the salad tray, whilst her children eat pizzas and run riot about the place.
The staff always moan that despite their excellent service, she never tips. Perhaps she is used to poor service Lol.
And the saga goes on!
Britney wanting a low key affair, which would no doubt bring loads of publicity! Opted for a small wedding in her home town of Kentwood, Louisiana, being the typical Southern Belle ! She just fancied chilling out at home after her wedding to her new beau Kevin Federline.
According to The Sun, Britney didn't marry in a white tracksuit, as we all thought. She actually walked down the aisle in a £15,000 coffee-coloured gown made by designer Monique L'Huillier.
The designer said: "Britney wore a creamy white latte colour. She wanted the gown simple and elegant."
Well, probably simple is the operative word here!
