There is no end to his wanting, Downton, Home and Away etc....has he mentioned Astronaut, now that Biebier might go into space (as if!) has PA tried to get a free ride on Bransons mission, I bet he has part of the outfit in the back of the wardrobe
Brilliant!

I can see him thinking 'if only Pharrell had called me and not Robin Thicke'
hahahhaa I'm just imagining Pete watching the video and imagining himself in Robin's place. (erm, a big NO on that one...)

I might be wrong as I didnt watch the Piers interview but from what was posted on the forum I think he said that he would like play Wembley wiithin 2 years (from the interview which must be over a year ago)....if he has also said that he wants to play before the end of his career does it mean that we have less than 2 years left of his music career? (sorry SS that question wasnt directed directly to you, its me thinking aloud )
He said all this on his show, the words came out of his own mouth - I remember hearing them and blinking and making this face - and they were: "I know that in two years time I'll be playing Wembley again.” And then made that 'pleased with himself and the power of his own mind' face.

He didn't say he'd like to play Wembley, or that it would be a dream to play Wembley, he said categorically he would be playing Wembley in 2 yrs time.

The clock is ticking ...less than a year to go

They'd have him in the background doing the quasi-Jacko "Wooh".

With regards to his kung fu schools:

What the hell???????

Peter revealed that learning to protect himself has given him more confidence in dealing with day-to-day confrontations and difficult situations.


What confrontations and what difficult situations? Is he getting threats we don't know about? Since when has he been doing kung fu?

Oh yes I remember that and he said it exactly as you say does he not hear the wealth of talent we have from artists less than half his age, who would never dream of making such a boast, or see for himself in the mirror, just why, its now their time and not his the only artists who have succeeded past their prime were legends in their own time, something PA never was or will be due to his lack of talent and inability to live in the present !
Hes medallion man, whos gradually turning into embarrassing dad dance man, wouldnt surprise me if he hadnt got his alarm call wired up to the sound of applause every morning, just to do him until his team can feed him on, how strong and great hes doing

I've heard rumours about a couple of stalkers wearing Doc Martens ....

Being serious, I practice a different kind of martial art and it does help you deal with emotional confrontations as well as physical, which he probably has plenty of with the court case looming. I think he's said he first took up martial arts as a teenager and even taught one form for a while but he's been training more intensively with Paul since 2009.

Actually, no, he doesn't. Again, from his own mouth when he was plugging his last album, he said he doesn't listen to contemporary artists... which explains two things: his delusions about his own abilities, and his cheesy, dated output.

I don't want to rub it in but let us not forget that Robin Thicke hasn't just come from nowhere, he is quite established as a writer of music and has had loads of hits with other artists singing his songs, I doubt anyone would take one of Andre's songs and sing it, unless it was a parody and I can't imagine Andre in a music video like Blurred Lines surrounded by topless TALL women without him getting that "smelled something horrible" face and fidgeting because he feels so small next to these ladies, Pharrell wouldn't have him anywhere near his productions

Just have to add this

Andre - Shit Music (Daft Punk - Get Lucky)

She's up all night doing shifts
I'm up all night writing shit
She's up all night draining cysts
I'm up all night recording shit music

He only supported Madonna for her few OZ dates in 1993. He didn't go on tour with her. I doubt she'd even know who he was.

That's your prerogative but he's spoken about it before eg:

Perhaps fellow CAN client, Oritsé Williams, can give DOTY a few pointers on how to publicise a cause and fundraise for it...

It has, I can't detail how many times but here's the first http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qOxVDwzeII and I know an episode in the last series definitely featured Pete training with Paul.

And here's Paul talking about teaching them, using Pete's name to promote the school, and how the school features on Pete's show. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zjSxt1qHgQQ

I've seen a few episodes but find it too repetitive to keep watching. Would be more interesting if his hair moved during a martial arts bout

His body is his weapon, including his hair.

And where has anyone asked you to aplologise?

Equally, no one should feel they don't have the right to tell you your opinion is completely and utterly ridiculous if that's how they feel.
I have no problem with that at all.
Whilst I could say more about walking out on your own children..........its probably best that I dont.

Oh please don't EVER feel the need to apologise, your opinion's are always so *coughs* enlightening.....
Why thank you for your kind words.

I've enjoyed catching up on the Abomination that is Andre.
Thanks guys.

You keep saying things like this, DD. I doubt if any person here would deny that anyone who LEAVES their children is causing long term damage. No question.

Pa did not do that. He left their mother. She then made it difficult for him to see them because she took them away, and then she went on holiday on her own. Since then they have had joint custody. Therefore, he did not leave his children.

To compare him to a parent who has little or no contact with their children is wrong and unfair.
