A real shame, but looking on the bright side, at least the rag didn't mention Jade Goody.

Although I cannot really call myself a fan of her music (a bit too shouty for me), I do greatly respect what she has achieved and it is sad to hear the news. On the plus side, at least she can afford the very best treatment which surely gives her a greater chance of recovery and, according to the Telegraph article I read, she's recovering very well:

And I've only just discovered that line in Respect is actually 'Take care, TCB'. For years I thought she meant for us to take care of TCP (the liquid antiseptic)! :doh: :D

Soz, Reeth. :pp:

And who could forget this recent performance...

Where did you get that hat, where did you get that style? :cool1:

(And is it style or tile? Or even tie? That's what I kept finding when I was looking for the lyrics. Tile wouldn't make any sense, would it? Not unless whoever it was was wearing the hat in the bathroom or possibly the kitchen. :chin: Anyway.. :D )

That is one Soul Sister, unreal. I think she did loads of gospel when she was younger, her timing, power, everything is just on tap and ready to go. All delivered with ease. She's brilliant.
Get well soon, girl :splif:

That's what the Sun is hedging its bets (and sales) on, as usual.

Sad and sick

And let's not forget all the rest of the people in the world with terminal cancers. They may not be a famous DJ or famous singer but they are still going through the same shit, probably without the luxury care the famous ones can afford.
