"Something Is Squeezing My Skull" misses UK Top 40 Singles Chart
posted by davidt on Sunday May 03 2009, @12:00PM

Maurice E posted in the forums:

uh-oh, it's official. he's missed the top 40 - Official UK Top 40 Singles Chart.
remember how p***ed off he was when 'The Youngest' missed the top 10 back in 2006? imagine how he feels now?

it's the first single to miss the top 40 since the Maladjusted era. timing couldn't be much worse as he's just about to embark on the UK tour.
looks like Southpaw's missed the top 40 in the album chart too...

Russell Brand gets shunned for Moz Bday bash; Jonathan Ross invited

NME reports:

Russell Brand upset over Morrissey 50th birthday snub - Daily Gossip

Russell Brand is gutted that he hasn't been invited to Morrissey's 50th birthday party, while fellow TV personality Jonathan Ross has.

Ross used (Twitter) to boast about getting an invite to the party.

"Sorry to shout but... I JUST GOT INVITED TO MORRISSEY'S 50TH BIRTHDAY PARTY!!!!!!!! Need to choose outfit immediately :)" he wrote on Wednesday (April 29).

Brand, who named his cat after the singer, is still waiting for his invitation, according to reports. Morrissey's birthday is on May 22 (Daily Star).

Maybe the invite just got lost in the post ;)
