I'm kind of in love with Hova right now

The crowds booed as a big picture of George Bush appeared on the big screens, as Jay-Z then freestyled about the US government's slow response to Hurricane Katrina's impact New Orleans and its effect on the poorer black communities. He ended his rap with a definitive "fuck Bush".

He then added: "Let's change it up" as a picture of Democratic hopeful Barack Obama appeared, and Jay-Z dived into a version 'Public Service Announcement'.



Nicely done, Mr. Carter.

Before the show started, a montage of clips played, concluding with the recent interview Gallagher gave where he said the Pyramid Stage performance was "not right" for the festival.

Before a huge crowd, the superstar rapper then mimed along to Oasis' huge 1995 hit 'Wonderwall', to huge cheers.

Oh for God's Sake, Amy

Honey. This is NOT GOOD.

The troubled singer's set ended in controversy when she appeared to assault a member of the audience.

And are those cocktail umbrellas in your hair?

They are.

Oh dear.


She allegedly punched an audience member and got hauled off by security. DURING 'REHAB.' Amy, Amy, Amy...

I'm so happy

So very happy.

Oasis will release their next studio album, 'Dig Out Your Soul', on October 6 on their Big Brother label. The album will be preceded by a single, 'The Shock Of The Lightning', on September 29.

I see the long line of rubbish song titles continues...
And J- Gem is looking FIT. And frankly, so is Andy. This disturbs me. Our Kid looks good- love the jacket. My Beloved Noel just looks, er, shorter than everyone else. His hair wasn't floofed enough in this picture.


There's always been something about train journeys that has fascinated me...

For the first day and a half, the Rossiya made rapid progress, speeding past thin ranks of birch trees that hung like silver curtains in front of barely undulating, featureless green fields. Trackside clumps of pale yellow primroses and newly raked vegetable patches next to congregations of wooden houses testified that spring had arrived west of the Ural mountain range.

Abilities to speak or breathe...

I seem to have lost them.

Wee Kyle covering 'Don't Look Back In Anger.' With adorable somewhat-bad-dancing accompaniment.

I've listened to this song, oh THOUSANDS of times, and I have to say, the B-3 is a very nice touch.

As is the darling Scots imp singing it.

Now THAT'S a hat!

At Royal Ascot

So cool

The Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess, cult author Irvine Welsh, comedian Steve Coogan and members of New Order were amongst the figures who today (June 22) completed a 24-hour "conversation" in memory of the late Manchester impresario, Tony Wilson.

Broadcasters Mark Radcliffe and Stuart Maconie - the former NME writer - were amongst the 24 key speakers over the 24 hours shared their creative expertise and experience with the hand-picked audience.

I really want this hat

Ah, if I only had an extra 2 grand lying around...
