The Controversy Against Noel Gallagher and Guns N’ Roses
There are those who complain about too much space and there are those who claim theirs. A few weeks back it was one of the former Oasis brothers/knives who busted out, and we were surprised it wasn’t Liam. Noel Gallagher actually criticized the microphone daily star Against Guns N’ Roses at Glastonbury, «When I found out that he was the keynote speaker of the festival I thought: what happened? But are we serious? This is utter nonsense. There are so many great British artists who have released an album this year.’ Who knows how Noel handles his promiscuity these days, as he headlines some festivals across America.
Reptile: Kim Vs Kourtney Kardashian
From America, more precisely from California, another controversy has emerged to laugh about. The protagonists are the most prominent Kardashians of the moment: Kim and Kourtney. The two have an animated discussion behind the camera of their family reality show, At first, Mrs. Barker accused her sister of stealing the mood for her wedding by creating a Dolce & Gabbana show that was too similar to her sweet married life. At that time, Kim accused the court of copying the location of her marriage (Italy). And Andrea Bocelli, the artist who performed during the party. Kim paid full respect to ex-husband Kanye West, saying, “It is known that he is my favorite singer of all time.”
Bocelli himself tried to resolve the family feud, using his Instagram profile to deliver a marketing message to the sisters. “Dear Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, I’m so glad you both like my voice and I’ll always be happy to sing for you. But know that there is a very young and very available artist, Matteo Bocelli.which your mother Kris Jenner knows very well.” Diamonds don’t make a thing, controversy makes a star.

Morgan, black belt in contention
On the other hand, the confrontation between Morgan and Amadeus knows no bounds. During a meeting at the Maxi in Rome with Vittorio Sgarbi, the X Factor judge defined it as “undemocratic to sign Sanremo’s management up for five years”. I’m not saying that he (Amadeus, Ed) knows nothing about music, that’s a fact and not letting him sign even for a year would be such a thing.’ The discussion then moved to Instagram, where the conductor replied: ”In silence, even an idiot can seem like a genius. Unfortunately idiots always want to talk.’
open heaven Morgan has published a very long tirade, in which he accuses Amadeus (E.) fiorello?) Being obsessed with money, literally “camping” on Ariston, being inhuman and ignorant.
The leader of Bluevertigo wrote on his profile, “Perhaps you do not understand that I do not want to lead or participate in or direct Sanremo.” I only dream that it will be free from hegemony and domination, that it will be a wonderful revival of the Italian song. Morgan didn’t want to participate in parties, she wanted the power to sabotage them.
