On Kate Moss, and Taking One for the Team
: "So, earlier this week Vanity Fair published a rare interview with Moss, in which the model, who is well-known for her circumspection, is unusually frank about the early years of her career. Moss was still a skinny, gangly teenager when she was plucked from mediocrity in Croydon and catapulted to superstardom. She was barely an adult, almost still a child, when she did her first topless photo shoot, with Corinne Day for The Face. In the interview, she talks about how uncomfortable this made her... This isn't the only the only revelation Moss made during the interview. It also turns out that the famous Calvin Klein campaign she did in 1992 with Mark Wahlberg gave her a nervous breakdown... Conveniently ignoring the fact that when the pictures were taken, Moss wasn't 'the face of the '90s', but a skinny teenage girl who cried because she was made to take her clothes off, Needham continues by saying that Moss' skinny frame 'seemed to encapsulate the euphoria of those long-distant times.'"

Thursdays Wouldn't Be Thursdays Without Popbitch!
I was nostalgically going over holgate's
archive and came across his March 2001 Popbitch post
. In case you haven't heard of it, it's an hilarious, outrageous and probably libelous free weekly newsletter dedicated to dishing the dirt
on (mostly)British celebs.
And yet it now looks like
its founder and editor, Stevenson
, has been head-hunted to edit the vapid monthly stylemag The Face
] So does anyone know of any other similarly outspoken and irreverent webby gossip sheets
?[On preview: this June 2001 post by mocata is also worth reading.
