Damien Rice - Rice Gained A Famous Fan After Hudson Romance Rumours
Irish singer DAMIEN RICE gained a famous fan after he was romantically linked to KATE HUDSON in the press - the actress immediately bought his records to find out who she was rumoured to be dating.
Hudson was baffled to read reports she was in a relationship with Rice in 2006 because she had never heard of the star - so she decided to listen to his albums.
And the 31 year old was immediately hooked on his soulful folk music.
The actress tells Britain's The Times, "I didn't know who he was, so when I heard that I was smooching him I looked him up online and now I love his music."
Hudson is currently dating Muse star Matt Bellamy and they are expecting their first baby together this summer (11).
