This gave me a good belly laugh today! In fact I’m still laughing! According to The Daily Mirror…. Brit babe Jade Ewen is in hot demand. First R&B star Usher was begging for a date when she was in LA this month. Yesterday, she went out in London with Brit rapper Chipmunk. Below Jade talks to an over eager Manny Norte about her encounter with Usher. Via Jump Off TV Last week Jade was conveniently photographed with the skinny one from boy band JLS []

XO Man celebrates his Hugo Urban Rules win with The Sugababes Check out South London born rapper XO Man’s single/official video Microwave. XO Man burst on to the UK scene after winning the Hugo Urban Rules talent contest in December 2008. I only recently found out that XO Man won Hugo Urban Rules, which I guess shows a complete lack of interest on my part when it comes to contests of this nature…. Quirky, different and a mix of genres here!  This track will eventually become a commercial []

Check out singer/song writer Cherri V, who I hope will go on to do big things here in the UK.

Mad News verdict: A HIT! Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss? Til The Sun Comes Up now available on ITunes. Cherri V Official website: http://www.cherriv.com
