APPENDICITIS BITES: So, the one out of Tatu who doesn't look like a tranny Mick Hucknall has been rushed to hospital with get-me-out-of-this-itis, sorry, appendicitis. They had to - dash it all - cancel a Monte Carlo gig, but, according to Ananova, "We also plan to go to Latin America, where our music is currently storming the charts." This is wonderful news, only slightly undermined by their not being in the Brazilian charts, or the Argentinan run down. Mexico don't appear to have a listing (at least not one we can find) so we guess they might be big there, as they don't appear in the Peru listings. However, we do offer them congratulations on being number one in the Vox 9 listings. From what we can gather, hitting the heights in this and claiming you've "stormed the charts in Latin America" is on a par with being at number three on the Box's Box Tops chart and suggesting you're Europe's answer to Madonna.
