Two weeks in and we are honed to perfection, sold out crowds everynight have made it our crazyiest tour ever. Many thanks to my amazing stylist Kim Howells for putting together a marvelous team of talented young designers and to Sylvia Mottram our on tour wardrobe boss from stopping it from all falling apart!

Now this is brilliant!
A play of two halves, one set in 1950's Chicago whilst the other is bang up to date. I won't give away the connection but it really is pure genius. The actors are seriously talented, the dialogue is profound, it's edgey, hilarious and at the same time incredibly relevent to today's grey attitudes. The writer Bruce Norris has a knack for turning our own cheap phases against us beautifully illuminating our undercurrent intolerance towards our fellow air-breathers.
This is a play you really shouldn't miss. I loved it!

Had a load of fun on the panel of The Wright Stuff this morning. The minute I arrived I was bombarded with info to be talked about on the show. I confess I'd not seen the show before as I'm rarely in at that hour or if I am I'm running or asleep but I really quite enjoyed all the chatter mixed up with discussion on serious issues. Matthew Wright was incredibly interesting, in the adverts he talked even more politics than on the show, this is a man truly interested in all matters of the world. In all it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience, the other panel members were especially warm and welcoming. Strangely this is the first time I've been invited to be on a show like this but I hope its not the last!

yes its been a while since you've heard from your sweet bard, I have an excuse, my life has been a dull suck-session of studio walls as I've been recording with skunk anansie these past three weeks and writing before that. I am not complaining however, its been soooooo much fun. The boys are frikken hilarious, the old skunk chemistry is back in full force and we have written and recorded a very special album.
Don't ask me any questions about it cos you wont even smell it for months, before that we have a tirade of festivals and support gigs to rock continuing on our massive 'Smashes & Trashes' tour with a few DJ gigs sprinkled in between.
So stay tuned my little bloggists, I will actually be out there doing stuff and therefore have something to write about finally. I leave you with some recommended reading. Enjoy!

Twas alot of fun, spent most of the evening chatting to David G (that guy in pants THAT D&G advert) and Freddie Fintoff. Both were totally sweethearts! Finally met Nicola from Girls Aloud, quite shy and lovely. Everyone was so happy to be there and Naomi was on top form, looking wonderful working the room, great atmosphere and we raised £1.4m !!! WELL DONE Naomi!! Well done US!

This is a must see life changing movie.
Its a long time since a film has actually truly moved me to my core but this film does it. Whatever you are doing, wherever you are in life you HAVE to see this movie. Adapted from the novel 'Push' by sapphire it follows the life and times of Claireece 'Precious' Jones a 16 yr girl who's been abused by her father. Now that may sound incredibly depressing and it was true to say my tears did roll on more than one occasion BUT this is perfectly balanced against some hilarious moments, the casting is genius, the banter between her class mates is inspired and the filming magnificent. We live in horribly shallow times so its wonderful to see something with depth, beauty and heart.
Do yourself a favour, go see this film, you'll never regret it.
WATCH THE TRAILER!

I couldn't resist passing by The Getty Villa in Malibu on my travels through Los Angeles, it houses J.Paul Getty's original Art collection, silly me thought I was off to see the house where they all lived (shoulda done my research as he never saw it completed even though he died two years after its completion) but instead I was treated to his re-incarnation of the famous Villa of the Papyri, wonderful but nowhere near as much fun. So if you are interested in stunning ancient antiquities that catapulte you back to the days when robes and whippings were a must, your'e in for a wonderful treat but if you , like me, wanted to see worn patches on leather armchairs or a dressing table covered in divorce papers next to a silk dressing gown, a cigar and a ransom note, you'll be bitterly disappointed.
