Britney Spears apparently made this video to Marilyn Manson’s cover of the Eurythmics’ classic “Sweet Dreams” a few years ago for her tour, but the clip has not been on the web till just now.
Aretha Franklin is baffled to hear the media attribute her recent health crisis to pancreatic cancer, and denies there’s any truth to the rumour.
Aretha Franklin was baffled to hear the media attribute her recent health crisis to pancreatic cancer, insisting she has no idea where that rumour came from.
The Queen of Soul, 68, cancelled a string of end-of-year concerts last month on the advice of her doctors after struggling with a mystery illness.
She was subsequently hospitalised and forced to undergo surgery, amid claims she had been diagnosed with the deadly disease, with unidentified family sources appearing to confirm the news.
Franklin has since spoken out about her health problems to assure fans she is recovering well from the operation, but she has repeatedly refused to divulge details about what ailed her.
However, the R.E.S.P.E.C.T. singer wants to clear up the false cancer reports, revealing only that she sought medical help after experiencing a pain in her side that “was so hard it almost brought me to my knees”.
She tells news show Access Hollywood, “I don’t know where ‘pancreatic cancer’ came from. I was sitting there reading the newspaper and it was saying someone in my family said that. No one in my family ever said that to anybody.”
The star claims the successful surgery has added at least 15 years to her life, according to her doctor, and there is one particular high-profile fan who has been cheering her on throughout her recovery – US president Barack Obama.
She says, “I got a wonderful and beautiful letter from the President. And nobody does it like him!”
During her visit to the Regis & Kelly Show on December 14, Annie Lennox discussed surmounting her stage fright with her two hosts. Lennox asked, “why be nervous?” apparently in the rhetorical sense, though Regis magnanimously reaffirmed her confidence.
After announcing that she’d conquered her fear of public blunders, the Scottish singer went on to hilariously prove her own point by messing up almost instantly.
During a rendition of her new single “The Holly and the Ivy” her guitarist gingerly taps her shoulder reminding her to start singing, kicking off an embarrassing series of on-stage miscommunications before they finally just start over.
A classic instance of speaking too soon and singing too late.
What to say?
Love you seems flip. Who dragged my dumb ass out of indulgent poo and made me do the site? Who is as dark as me? Who leaves the country tomorrow?
Thank you so much Mark. You have made me less of a cunt.
And thank god as we know now not that far to England with the neat webby thing.
And haven’t we had fun babe??
You and Aaron shall rock that country.
But, Boy, shall miss you more than can ever be put into words.
So, let me express myself thru song…….
Only Xmas song I shall EVER post.
I love Annie
This was the song used at the end of the RSC 9 hour version of ‘The Life And Adventures Of Nicholas Nickelby’.
