What do Carla Bruni, Kobe Bryant, Heather Mills, Starbucks and Pitchfork TV have in common? They all feature in my first ‘Friday Links’ post! Every Friday I’m going to post some news events or just links to interesting things which have happened during the week. Here goes.
Carla Bruni has been in the news quite a lot lately after her visit to the UK with French President Nicolas Sarkozy. The ex-supermodel proves that the French are just sexier than us Brits. A nude photo of Bruni taken by Michel Comte was auctioned off at Christie’s in New York for £46,098.
Troubled Basketball star Kobe Bryant can jump over a moving Aston Martin.
Heather Mills has been awarded a writing credit on the Beatles classic Eleanor Rigby.
Starbucks have tired to boost slowing sales by releasing a new blend called Pike Place Roast. The blend is named after their first store and has been described as “nothing too objectionable”. The coffee giant have also changed their logo back to its original incarnation.
Pitchfork.com, the best music review site online has launched a web TV channel called Pitchfork.tv. Early highlight include an exclusive Radiohead performance of Bangers & Mash and an interview with Swedish singer Robyn.
