On The Grapevine….

Posted by Dean Piper On June 5th, 2011

David and Samantha Cameron have certainly been embracing Ibiza life during this week. My spies caught Sam Cam dining with DJ John Beech at the island’s hot spot Aura at the start of the week, the pair enjoying a chilled day at Tropicana alongside Blue Marlin and David’s a regular coffee drinker at the cafes in Santa Getrudis. Get them.


Kelis (above) and Duck Sauce are the next names to join the line-up for this summer’s I Want My MTV Ibiza parties. Snoop Dogg has already been announced as the opening performer on the island on July 1st but now Kelis and Duck Sauce are set to play July 8 at super club Amnesia on the island. I may just have to go back for another visit….

Top DJ Seb Fontaine is performing a set for my friend Richard Lamping and his team of intrepid explorers on June 22 at London’s Cafe De Paris. Richard sadly lost his sister Sarah to leukaemia at the young age of 32 and is now aiming to climb Mount Muztagh Ata in China to raise funds for the Leuka Leukaemia Chairty based at Hammersmith Hospital. Get tickets and find out more at www.slmf.org.uk.

Gypsy dress designer Thelma Madine is loving the attention thanks to Channel 4′s Big Fat Gypsy Weddings. And the star, rumoured to be designing Kate Moss’ gypsy wedding outfit for next week’s IOW Festival, tells me she’s already bagged her own show: “It’s all about me and the history of the shop. It’s been fun having the cameras there and I really can’t wait for it to air later this year hopefully.”

Pixie Geldof performed with her new band Violet in London for the Belvedere vodka live music series. Not only was she extremely good she had an array of famous faces who came along to support. Her dad Sir Bob came along to watch the half hour set, and sweetly recorded the whole thing on his video camera. Other attendee’s included Nick Grimshaw, Ellie Goulding and Noel Fielding.

Pooldisco goes Dick and Fanny once again had the stars clambering for a place alongside the pool at Shoreditch House this weekend just gone. Paloma Faith, Katy B, Adam Lambert and designer  Christopher Kane all popped by Mark Herman’s now infamous night. Caner of the evening award went to Vanessa White of The Saturdays. She was the last one standing and spotted dancing on the tables. Well done.

JLS New 2

Oh dear – JLS (above) are now trying to get serious about acting. For realz! Marvin, who stars in JLS’ debut ‘movie’ Eyes Wide Open in 3D, tells me: “We’d love to venture more into a drama role. And we’re looking at scripts now.”
And Aston says he’s already thought about an actor to play him in a movie of his life: “If there was ever a movie made about JLS I’d want Zac Efron to play me. I met him when we were out in LA and we went out partying together. Everyone else went to bed bar me and Zac and we went out partying.” Boy crush or what…..!
