The Terrifying Myth Of Kate Nash
Like the hissing, poisonous serpent Hydra that she is, it seems that since warrior Goddess Cheryl Tweedy lobbed off one of Lily Allen's ghastly heads, the grim, hideous face of Kate Nash has now sprung up in its place. Snake Nash's first official single on a major label, "Foundations," debuts at #2 on the isle of Brythons this week, failing to dethrone Empress Rihanna Of The Posh Wig. And like gob-face Allen, Kate appears to be just another dame with a chip on her shoulder because some unlucky sap finally took off the beer goggles. Witness the horror:
The guy in the video looks like he'd be a hot bounce, though.
Jack Peñate also enters the Top 10, at #7, with a song rivaling the best of the John Mayer catalogue. "Torn On The Platform" no doubt got an added boost from recent BBC coverage of last week's Glastonbury festival featuring the singer. Meanwhile, Take That's "I'd Wait For Life" makes a deadly plunge to #50 after a Robbie Williams-like appearance at #17 last week.
Finally, at #40, it's Mark Ronson featuring Lily Allen with aptly-titled "Oh My God."
