According to Gordon Smart, Beyonce had been planning to play Battersea Power Station but... well, was thwarted?
BEYONCE'S secret gig suffered a bit of a setback when Health and Safety gimps banned her from doing a special show at Battersea Power Station in London.Gimps?
It seems that saying 'you know what, that would be an unsafe place to do a gig' isn't actually a useful intervention, but somehow 'lame'. If only Gordon were in charge; if someone wanted Beyonce to play in a barrel going over the edge of the Falls Of Glomach, he'd just smile and nod.
Actually, scrub that - he's suddenly realised they have a point:
I would call them killjoys but I saw Beyonce's backing singers, THE MAMAS, at Glastonbury.Ha ha ha, because they're BIG, do you see? Ha ha ha.
Their bras alone would need scaffolding.
Beyonce went to Harrods instead:
Bosses at Harrods must have been delighted that Beyonce and co turned up.What? Is this Smart trying to reach out to a credit-crunched readership by going "tschaw, those rich people with their rich ways, eh?"
They are among the few people on the planet who can afford to shop there.
He also finds time to kick one of his predecessors:
She also had the misfortune of being pestered by a chubby old showbiz reporter clinging on to his youth, PIERS MORGAN, who was interviewing her for news channel CNN.By the time Morgan was Smart's age, he'd already moved on from editing Bizarre and was just about to start his second editorship of a national newspaper.
(Note: being fair to Piers Morgan has led me to sicking up both my kidneys.)
All those businessmen in hotels around the world will be looking forward to seeing an interview with one of the hit parade's finest.No they won't, Gordon. They have channels which keep them better company, without having half the screen taken up by Piers' face.
