>> Mel C 'Breaking' News

Just saw this over at the official Mel C Website Well she said it best so I'll just paste it here!

"You are not going to believe what I have done... I went out on Sunday night for a quite meal with friends and just as we were leaving, I fell down the stairs!!!

Since then my foot has been about ten times the size as usual and really sore and today I finally decided to get it X-rayed, and yes, you guesssed it, I've broken my right foot....well I've broken the bone that connects the little toe to the foot...but it still hurts like hell!!! (You're probably not interested but it's a 'spiral fracture' apparently!)

Anyway I just wanted you all to know.... I also wanted to say that as far as the tour goes : nothing changes... the show must go on, as they say. So come next Monday (4/9) I'll be there at the Assembly rooms in Derby, banging out all the tunes as usual, just don't expect too many back flips or somersaults, my little toe's having none of it!!!"

Can't wait to see you

Loads of Love

>> Wannabe Director Dead

38 year old video director Johan Camitz was killed this past weekend in a car accident. The swedish director was taking a walk in New York when two gunmen speeding alongside each other on the street opened fire at one another. The driver of a Honda Civic fatally shot the driver of a Range Rover. The driver obviously lost control of the vehicle and unfortunately hit Camitz. Camitz was taken to the hospital but died from his injuries. Camitz was responsible for many famous ad campaigns for Nike, Diesel, MasterCard, Volvo, and Smirnoff. Videos he directed include Eagle Eye Cherry's pop song "Falling in Love Again" and the Spice Girls' world famous "Wannabe" video that launched the Spice Girls' careers. The Spice Girls are said to be shocked and saddened by his death.
