Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse

Last we heard Amy Winehouse was all set to move over to Jamaica but now it seems she is to move to the suburbs. Amy will swap hedonistic Camden for the quiet suburb of Hadley Wood on her return to London. A friend told Britain’s The Sun newspaper: “It’s quiet and there won’t be all that temptation on her doorstep. But it’s near to her home London borough of Enfield and to Camden, so she won’t feel too isolated. That’s why she has agreed.” It was revealed earlier this month that Amy, who went to St. Lucia in December, is avoiding “bad influences” in London by recording her long-awaited third album in Jamaica, the home of late reggae legend Bob Marley.

Anna Nicole Smith

Anna Nicole Smith

Have you been to the opera recently? Well gone are the days of Carmen and Madame Butterfly. Now you can expect to see Anna Nicole Smith – The Opera. Yes you heard me right, the guys who brought you Jerry Springer: The Opera have come up with their latest collision of high and low culture: an opera based on the life of Anna Nicole Smith. Britain’s Royal Opera has recruited composer Mark-Anthony Turnage and Springer co-librettist Richard Thomas to create an opera about the Playboy model who died of an overdose in 2007. Despite the subject matter, the show “is not going to be tawdry. It is going to be witty, clever, thoughtful and sad, It is not just a documentary about her, but a parable about celebrity and what it does to people.” says company director Elaine Padmore. Will you be in the front row opening night? We can’t quite make up our minds about this one.
