Stars Line Up To Support Blackman Campaign
THE PET SHOP BOYS, LILY ALLEN and the SCISSOR SISTERS are the latest celebrities to pledge their support for a campaign set up in memory of tragic Brit LUCIE BLACKMAN, who was murdered in Japan. The stars have recorded messages for the Lucie Blackman Trust website, started by Blackman's father TIM after the 21-year-old vanished while working as a hostess in a Tokyo nightclub in July 2000. Her dismembered body was found in a cave in the remote fishing village Miura in February 2001, after a seven-month search. Japanese businessman JOJI OBARA was charged with murder and is currently on trial. The hitmakers recorded their messages for the Trust's latest campaign, 'Student Safe', between their sets at British music festival Bestival on the Isle of Wight off the South coast of England, last weekend (09/10SEP06). COLDPLAY previously dedicated their song TALK to the late Lucie Blackman at their appearance at the Isle of Wight festival in June (10+11JUN06), and supermodel KATE MOSS has also recorded a message for the site.
