Naomi Campbell Alan Carr

Naomi Campbell has claimed that she doesn’t like the use of the word “racism” to describe discrimination she’s faced in the fashion industry from time to time, and objects to the way the term is often used.

The 45 year old British supermodel made the comments during an interview for Alan Carr’s ‘Chatty Man’ talk show on Channel 4, which was broadcast on Thursday night (April 21st). She was asked whether she faced racism at the start of her career in the ‘80s, and described it as “territorialism” from established figures in the industry.

“I never use that word ‘racism’,” she replied. “I find it a cliché word and I don’t want to use it as an excuse.”

Robbie Williams Live 02 Gig Shows He's Still Got It


Robbie Williams Gary Barlow Alan Carr

For someone who spends more time holding out his microphone to the audience, ironically meaning the crowd do most of the leg work at his concerts, Robbie Williams can still attract the crowds. His latest show - at the 02 London - had gone down marvellously.

He was even given a Twitter boost by his pal and old band mate, Gary Barlow, who posted, "Have a great show tonight @robbiewilliams #O2london", and after the show, celebrity praise was ample, with comedian Alan Carr tweeting, "Just seen @robbiewilliams at the 02 - amazing - what a showman!! Now how can I get him on @chattyman hmmmmn!!!!" The Telegraph were perhaps the most doting, however, giving the show a 5 star review, writing, "The show was staged in the round and it felt fitting because we were seeing many sides of Williams - the self deprecating comedian making cracks about the Queen not recognising him, the Norman Wisdom impersonator and the great British pop icon."

"Tonight was triumphant," the review went onto say. "A reminder that Robbie Williams remains one of the national treasures of British pop. 'They said it was leaving me, the magic was leaving me' he had sung earlier on 'Be A Boy', adding 'I don't think so.' I don't think so either, Robbie." So it looks like Robbie's still got it!

Louis Tomlinson: Gay Rumours Are ‘Degrading’ Towards My Girlfriend


One Direction Harry Styles Alan Carr

Louis Tomlinson has described the gay rumours about him and band-mate Harry Styles as ‘really degrading’ towards his current girlfriend.

The One Direction singer initially found the suggestions funny and seemed to play up to it a lot when the cameras were around. However, since starting dating Eleanor Calder, he admits it has all become wearisome. He spoke to overtly homosexual comedian Alan Carr in a pre-recorded interview for his show ‘Alan Carr: Chatty Man’. ‘I just think it’s really degrading towards her’, he said, according to The Mirror, after being asked about the issue.

Louis and Harry have even had a ‘Brangelina’ style nickname coined for them; Larry Stylinson; which has annoyed Louis even more. He previously told MTV News that he finds it ‘hard to deal with’ since being in a relationship and said that it affected how he was with Harry in public, confessing that although they want to mess around like normal friends, they can’t because of the ensuing false reports. Earlier this month he posted a rather cryptic Tweet that could be in reference to the rumours: ‘Still months on reading ridiculous conspiracy theories. It's upsetting that I have to read them daily. Thank god for the lovely people on here’, the comment read.
