Spice Girl Melanie C has a new partner in crime when it comes to starting work on her fifth solo record – Drag Queen DJ extraordinaire Jodie Harsh. Mel told me the pair are working on some killer dance tracks for her next record. Speaking at the InStyle Best of British party in association with Lancome, Mel revealed: “We’re in the studio working now. Tomorrow, in fact. There’s a lots of writing and studio time booked in and the results are very exciting.
“Jodie’s got a good grasp of what I want to do and we’re hoping to return to the ‘I Turn To You’ days with some big dance hits.”
Jodie added: “I’ve been a fan of Melanie for years so it’s a pleasure to be working with her. We’re both extremely focused on things right now. So although we may be at a party together we’re going home early and will be up at the crack of dawn.” I literally cannot wait for Mel’s new material.
Heidi Klum (above with me) is one of the most down to earth and charming supermodels out there. She tells me she can’t wait to party with me at Elton John’s wonderful Academy Awards viewing party in aid of the Elton John AIDS Foundation in LA soon. She told me at the InStyle bash at Shoreditch House: “I can’t wait to see you there. It’s always such a great event and what better way to raise a hell of a lot of money for a great cause and enjoy the Oscars. I’ll be there with Seal. See you on the dance floor.” Catch you there, Heidi!
