Royal Roundup: Kate’s Dress is the Big Draw at Palace Show

Kate Middleton‘s wedding dress is the centerpiece of the exhibition honoring the royal wedding that opens at Buckingham Palace on Saturday. “It is just a work of art and a tribute to British couture,” Caroline de Guitaut, the exhibit’s curator, told Sky News.

Joss Stone Narrowly Escapes Kidnapping

News has just broken of a terrifyingly close call for the British soul singer Joss Stone, who appears to have been at the centre of an alarming kidnap plot, which was thankfully foiled due to some sterling detective work by her neighbours.

Five Great British Things The Americans Ruined

So far in this series, we have examined 10 great American institutions, and the effect a British influence has had over each one, for better or worse. Now it’s payback time.

For the first time since the early '80s, the States are ripe for the plunder, industry insiders say. The reasons cited […]

Joss Stone’s Album “Highest-Charting Entry By British Female Ever”

Send us your poor, your tired, your huddled celebs: America has long been a place where battered and bruised UK stars seek redemption. This week alone, Heather Mills has become a somersaulting sensation on Dancing with the Stars, and now, Joss Stone's new album, Introducing Joss Stone, has made U.S. chart history: debuting at No. […]

Lily Allen Insults Americans, Joss Stone Blasts the UK Press

You can’t love Lily Allen without loving her big, ballsy mouth, and for the most part, I agree with her statements about Madonna, Kate Moss, sexism in the music industry, and celebrity body image.
