In this corner
Today we have another inexplicably well-publicised Lily Allen sponsored gloves off in the music pages. Whereas yesterday she was thinking about gastric surgery and feeling fat and ugly, today she’s revealed its Cheryl Tweedy-Cole’s fault - you know the Girls Aloud singer that moonlights as a preening, self-absorbed wife of a middling footballer. Ding ding - corners please. It is time to take sides and pledge your support because the war of Girls Aloud Vs Lily could last years.
But, thankfully, London is blessed with a new contender and this one is outside the ring: 23 -year old Remi Nicole who has lived on the sunny side of the Thames all her life, flitting between Holloway, Islington, Highgate, Tufnell Park and presently residing in Highbury.
Her first single "Fed Up" is out this week on Island Records. She started gigging with Mr. Hudson and the Library a few months back and is now set to open for Amy Winehouse later this month. Just the thought of what's in store for her makes me smile - dare I say, Lily Allen-style.
