A war of words broke out between Cliff Richard and George Michael after George branded Cliff Richards hit ‘Millennium Prayer’ as ‘vile’. Cliff hit back by saying that his single was a Christian celebration.

Billy Joel responded to tabloid reports that his daughter Alexa Ray Joel’s recent overdose was motivated by a family dispute between her and her mother, Christie Brinkley. Billy said that the stories were false and that the public should “consider the source” when reading such articles.
