John Lydon Sex Pistols Piers Morgan

John Lydon has said that his ban from BBC radio for speaking out against Jimmy Savile at the start of his career still rankles with him nearly forty years later.

Lydon, the former lead singer of punk icons the Sex Pistols and now the post-punk veterans Public Image Ltd., gave an interview back in 1978 in which he said the disgraced former presenter Savile was “into all sorts of seediness. We all know about it but we’re not allowed to talk about it. I know some rumours.”

Speaking to Piers Morgan for his 'Life Stories' show, the 59 year old said: “I’m very, very bitter that the likes of Savile and the rest of them were allowed to continue. I did my bit, I said what I had to. But they didn’t air that.”

Madonna has offered her opinion on the Dolce And Gabbana controversy and firmly supports Elton John's views. The controversy stems from a comment made by designer Domenico Dolce in an interview in an Italian magazine, Panorama. In the interview, Dolce described children born by IVF as "synthetic babies". The March issue of the magazine was released on 12th March but the backlash against the duo continues with many celebrities and LGBT groups calling for a boycott of the label and protesters picketing D&G stores.

Piers Morgan Criticises US Gun Laws On Last CNN Show


Piers Morgan Meryl Streep Madonna Alec Baldwin Shania Twain Ellen Degeneres

Piers Morgan ended his three year run on his CNN talk show Piers Morgan Live on Friday (28th March) with a plea to the US government to change "the absurd gun laws".Morgan's show was cancelled following low ratings and possibly his involvement in the phone hacking scandal, nevertheless he left the show on a somewhat controversial note.

Morgan, ever controversial, used his final show as an opportunity to comment on the social and political implications of gun laws in the US. He referenced recent tragedies in which guns were used to kill large numbers of people which prompted criticism of gun laws in the US and worldwide.

Morgan has spent a number of years in the states over the past decade and described gun violence, such as that displayed in the Connecticut Sandy Hook massacre and the Colorado Aurora Cinema, as "a disease that infects every aspect of American life". Referencing these attacks Morgan said, as The Independent reports: "I assumed that after 70 people were shot in a movie theatre and then just a few months later 20 first-graders were murdered with an assault rifle in an elementary school, that the absurd gun laws in this country would change, but nothing has happened".

Piers Morgan Finishes CNN Run With Anti-Gun Statement "I Want More Of You To Stay Alive"


Piers Morgan

It was announced last month that CNN and Piers Morgan will be ending their partnership in the near future.

That time has now come. On Friday (March 28th) the 48 year-old said goodbye to his show 'Piers Morgan Live' with a statement about something he has been very vocal about in the past several years, gun-control.

Morgan, who has been a supporter of stricter gun control laws, said, "more guns doesn't mean less crime," and told viewers that this wasn't an anti-America protest.

Where Did It All Go Wrong For Piers Morgan In America?


Piers Morgan

Piers Morgan is no stranger to bad press. Possibly, this is because he has always received his fair share of it (particularly in recent months), although throughout his seemingly eternal career he has also doled out much of it to others. Some, therefore, may cite karma as a reason behind the recent news than his CNN prime time talk show has been cancelled.

Yet Morgan has always maintained an unwavering confidence, despite having garnered a less than favourable reputation among his critics and viewers.  His reputation with his American audience deteriorated so dramatically that a petition was started to deport him from the country. The UK countered with their own petition, urging the US to reconsider as they didn’t want him either.

Piers Morgan and Jeremy Clarkson - probably two of Britain's most polarising television personalities - have engaged in yet another Twitter spat. Of course by polarising we mean hated and by Twitter spat we mean THE MOTHER OF ALL TWITTER SPATS.

"Evening, Clarkson,' I chuckled.

Filling in for British host Piers Morgan on Piers Morgan Live on 26th July, Friends star Matthew Perry, AKA Chandler Bing, took over hosting responsibilities, showing off his natural talent for comedy in an interview with Friends co-star, Lisa Kudrow. In Perry's opening monologue during which he assesses how he and Morgan are different, he introduces his rather familiar first interviewee: "she beautiful, she's intelligent, she's hilarious and if memory serves she owes me, errr...47 dollars[...]you may remember her as being the second funniest cast member on Friends" as Kudrow's laughter filters through from offscreen.

Kudrow: Could She & Perry Form Their Own Splinter Version Of Friends?

The pair joked and bantered like old times, having spent ten seasons on the popular sitcom which charted the lives of a group of friends living in Manhattan. The pair also revealed that, if it were up to them, the show that broadcast its final episode in 2004 wouldn't have ended as soon as it did. "If I had a time machine, I would like to go back to 2004 and not have stopped," admitted Perry who has been seen most recently on the now cancelled 2012 NBC comedy, Go On. The unofficial Friends. The One With The Reunion Image has been floating around for months on Twitter, stirring up a frenzy but it's pretty clear no sneaky efforts are being made to produce more episodes under the radar.

Handler, Morgan Fight? More Like Jokes And Awkward Silence


Chelsea Handler Piers Morgan

Chelsea Handler and Piers Morgan had a fight? That's what's being reported, but really it's just standard banter. Both Morgan and Handler have their own chat shows, Morgan was visiting Handler's show Chelsea Lately. 

As US Magazine reported, both were in a playful mood, and as soon as Piers walked out on set, before he'd even sat down Chelsea asked him what he was looking at. "You've either had plastic surgery or a makeover, because you look really hot today," Morgan retorted. And the banter continued from there. 

"Oh, you're so annoying. You're so obnoxious - you wonder why everybody hates you!" Chelsea exclaimed. "I specifically covered up so you couldn't look at me and undress me with your molester eyes." Their 'argument' didn't stop there. "Normally when I come on the show you're really hung over in a very unprofessional way," Morgan said, joking about Handler's penchant for alcohol.

Handler, Morgan Fight - Who Won The Chat Show Hosts' War Of Words?


Chelsea Handler Piers Morgan

That Handler, Morgan fight? Well, it was all in jest, of course, but even though Piers Morgan and Chelsea Handler were just trying to wind each other up they still managed to get some serious digs in at each other. Piers Morgan appeared on Handler’s show Chelsea Lately for an interview that culminated in Chelsea getting so wound up that she told Piers “you can suck my ass.”

Before both guests had even settled in their seats, the war of words had begun, with Chelsea challenging Piers, demanding “What are you looking at?" Piers responded by joking “well, you’ve either had plastic surgery or a makeover, because you look really hot today.”

Chelsea was quick to fire back, saying “Oh, you're so annoying. You're so obnoxious… you wonder why everybody hates you! I specifically covered up so you couldn't look at me and undress me with your molester eyes.” Morgan decided to have a pop at Handler’s reputation for boozing and told her “Normally when I come on the show, you're really hungover in a very unprofessional way."

Burt Reynolds Explains Sally Field Was The Love Of His Life


Burt Reynolds Sally Field Piers Morgan

Legendary 80s film star Burt Reynolds has stated that he believes Sally Field was the love of his life and thinks that the only reason they aren't still together is that he was a bad partner.  The actor, known for his role in 'Boogie Nights', became a legendary ladies man due to a string of Hollywood stars. These actresses included Faye Dunaway, Loni Anderson and Kim Basinger, although he has stated that leaving Field was his biggest mistake.

As part of his appearance on 'Piers Morgan's Life Stories', Reynolds explained the relationship, saying that: "Had I been smarter, you know, with one lady... I still would be together with her. Sally. Without a doubt. I asked her (to marry me) at the wrong time. She asked me at the wrong time. I missed out on that one, that's for sure. I think we would have been very happy, yes. I'd like to think so. I'm not sure she'd say so. She's just a very special woman. I really handled that one pretty bad."

Why Did Kelsey Grammer Walk Out On Piers Morgan?


Kelsey Grammer Piers Morgan Jimmy Fallon

Kelsey Grammer decided, for whatever reason, that he didn’t want to be interviewed by Piers Morgan on his CNN show, and deserted the studio before any such thing could happen, reports The Telegraph.

“Kelsey Grammer was supposed to be on my show, but he ran out of the building. Strange,” tweeted the talk show host on Wednesday. The news seems to have offended Morgan, who himself cuts a ‘love or hate’ figure in the U.K. “So, Kelsey Grammer saw a photo of his ex-wife Camille in the open of our show and legged it. Extraordinary. Never had this happen before … I like Kelsey Grammer personally, but this was a shockingly unprofessional thing to do. I wasn’t even going to mention his ex-wife.” Grammer's publicist told The Hollywood Reporter: "Piers needs to take responsibility for what he did to Kelsey. It's called accountability." Seemingly embarrassed, and unable to let it go, Morgan continued to tweet about the Frasier star, saying "Relax Jimmy, unlike my guest Mr Grammer last night, I won't run away." He was referring to his upcoming appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

The ex-wife Morgan was joking about may have had something to do with Grammer’s untimely exit (or timely, depending on who you ally with) although nothing has been officially released regarding what was said backstage. Grammer, 57, and Camille divorced last year before he married British flight attendant Kayte Walsh, who is 25 years younger than him.
