I agree. She should've just waited and made a new album. It's a pity. On a positive note, Ride and American are the standouts for me.

Totally wald its a total sell out and has tarnished her for me a bit i mean wouldn't have been so bad as a standalone but it really is a weak and pointless collection but agree Ride and American two good songs at leat. Listening To Jessie Ware's Devotion i would say better than BTD and so underrated definitely worth a listen its a stunning album

Millions of women get pregnant every day! The story was just on the NBC Nightly News as well. I'm a good republican At least I have my book to read I was ranting to mum earlier about Kate's pregnancy. At least I wasn't talking about you know who and the dream I had.

Wouldn't surprise me Here in Ireland things will remain normal... or is there such a thing as normal in my world? Just heard on the NBC Nightly News that there was a heatwave in certain parts of the US. The weather in NYC seems to be ok so if that's where you know who is going he'll be fine. Lucky him I haven't had another dream since.

Jessie Ware is very talented but I couldn't get 100% on board with her album whereas BTD had a fairly immediate effect on me. I think I do need to give Devotion another few listens as Wildest Moments is one of my favourite songs of the year.

It's taken a while its an album that reveals itself on further listens i agre whereas as you say BTD was immediate i think i fell in love with her when OTTR was free single of the week on iTunes now that was lucky

Re: Wills and Kate, I feel so sorry for her having to announce the pregnancy so early. I don't think I could cope with a life where you have virtually no privacy.
I was just thinking that too. I was studying for Media Law today and reading about the right to privacy and everything. Well I might have something new to write about...

Lucky indeed!

I'll definitely check Devotion out again. To be fair, I only listened to it at work so I probably didn't give it the attention it deserved.

Well, it would be very on-topic so it might be a good choice. I think the fact that they had to go public with the information clearly because couldn't trust the health care system/their staff to keep confidential information exactly that, confidential, is a sad reflection of the society we live in.

Do you like media law? The only aspect of law I ever studied was a bit on copyright law but sadly most of it's forgotten I really liked it though.

Good point. If I have to write about privacy I might mention that in the exam. Yeah I find it really interesting and topical, especially with the News of the World scandal, the Kate Middleton topless photos thing and whatever. I did copyright as part of IT Law () and Intellectual Property Law. Intellectual Property Law is a good subject but the lecturer was airy-fairy I call her the airy fairy one I have to put up with her again next semester for English Land Law.

That bit sounds good, it's the rest of it that isn't No I can be a bit of a cynic as well

Wasn't she hounded by the press a lot? That's another thing I can mention in Media Law. Well we won't get a bank holiday here in Ireland but enjoy yours if you get one

She sure was. You need only take her death as an example of the press hounding she received. Her car crashed as it was being chased by paparazzi some of whom when the crash had occurred took pictures of the dead/wounded in Diana's car. I know she courted the press but nobody deserves that IMO. I remember George Clooney held a press conference in the days after her death calling for stricter regulations.

I presume you touched on the stricter French privacy laws when you discussed the Kate/topless scandal?

I think we've all had one of those lecturers. There's nothing worse!

The copyright law we studied was tied in with music management so we studied things like publishing and recording royalties, etc. It was interesting to read about acts such as The Who that got completely screwed over by managers.

You know how she gets into college? Fairy dust! We didn't do that sort of thing. We did a lot about copyright of software and art and various other things. Music was only touched on. Some of the first lectures were like Show and Tell: University Edition The airy-fairy one didn't know what her right arm was doing!

Thanks for all that info. I'll use it in my exams alright. No I don't think we did. The Kate photo scandal was only mentioned briefly.

Lol, it's like something out of Hogwarts.

No problem. I wouldn't say the paparazzi was to blame for her death though as IIRC the driver had alcohol in his system but still they exacerbated the situation. In a way Clooney kind of jumped the gun a bit by placing the blame firmly in the hands of the paparazzi given the toxicology results that would later emerge. Still though, he had a valid point especially as he's not one who's very anti-media. He's actually very supportive of media and journalism when it's done in a particular way, and he's a very good example of a celebrity who manages to keep his privacy somewhat intact while using his celebrity to draw attention to issues such as the Sudanese conflict.
