SHARON HORGAN’s relationship with Madchester star Tim Burgess is truly raising eyebrows.
The Bafta-winning Irish actress was spotted kissing the Charlatans frontman this week on the side of a busy road.
Sharon has reportedly been a fan of Tim since he rose to fame with the hit The Only One I Know in 1990 when she was a teenager.
They got to know each other after he tweeted how much he loved her on C4’s Catastrophe.
And as their friendship grew, she even sang on The Charlatans’ album Different Days in 2017. A source said: “Sharon and Tim have kept their relationship low key, but that hasn’t stopped them from kissing next to a busy road in London.
“They seemed lost in each other and didn’t seem to care who saw them. »
Sharon was married to producer Jeremy Rainbird for 14 years and has two children with him.
Tim has a son with electronic musician Nik Colk Void, but it is unknown if they are still together.
He gradually got to know Sharon after she retweeted her praise for Catastrophe. He said: “We had a little dating trip to music festivals, and Sharon came to see us play in New York. »
Tim was then treated to a visit on the set of Divorce, the show starring Sarah Jessica Parker, for which Sharon wrote and served as producer from 2016 to 2019.
Reps for Sharon and Tim declined to comment.
Rita puts on the pomp
RITA ORA shines like a star in this bejeweled dress, but she insists she hasn’t let fame get to her head.
The Anywhere singer, who is working on her third album, said of life in the spotlight: “It’s definitely a shock to your system because it’s something you’ve never experienced before.
“People ask me all the time, ‘What does fame look like?’ And it’s really hard to explain fame if you’re not into it. It’s a very strange concept. I don’t really think of it as a reality. . . I’m not taking him home with me.
In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar Australia magazine, along with this photo and bare midriff below, she continued, “I like to think of myself as a normal person. When I go out, I know, now it’s time for work.
“People could come and talk to you. People can come and take pictures of you. It’s just something that comes with the territory.
“You also need to realize what you signed up for and choose where you want to keep it private. »
RED HOT WALK
THE RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS are honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
They will receive it next Thursday, on the eve of the release of their 12th album, Unlimited Love.
In a joint statement, band members Anthony Kiedis, Flea, Chad Smith and John Frusciante said, “We’ve spent thousands of hours honing our craft and pitching for each other to make the best album possible. . »
J-Lo steals Ben’s iHeart
JENNIFER LOPEZ won the Icon award at the iHeartRadio Music Awards – watched adoringly by her boyfriend Ben Affleck.
At the ceremony in Los Angeles, Megan Thee Stallion performed her Dua Lipa Sweetest Pie collaboration in a hot pink bodysuit and Nicole Scherzinger posed in a floral bra top and skirt. But the riskiest outfit of the night was the little silver number worn by Halsey, who pouted for a wink with Olivia Rodrigo. Meanwhile, Lil Nas X won Male Artist of the Year gong and David Guetta won Dance Artist of the Year.
HARRY STYLES should once again dominate the summer as their third album is due out on May 20.
He announced Harry’s House in 13 tracks yesterday in an Instagram post, which quickly garnered millions of likes.
It will be the sequel to his massive hit Fine Line, which he released in late 2019, and which will be released three weeks before his shows kick off at Love On Tour stadiums.
Harry has spent several weeks shooting videos for the project and the first single should be out in the next few days.
There is a lot of pressure for it to be a success, but its record suggests it will be even bigger than the last.
ALAN A SPICE SHOE-IN
The man who led the Spice Girls to stardom has admitted he only got the publicist job because they liked his shoes.
Alan Edwards has just been named No1 Entertainment PR by PR Week mag for the eighth year.
He took on Mel B, Mel C, Geri Horner, Emma Bunton and Victoria Beckham in the 90s, and said: “I got a call from Virgin Music to be in the office in 45 minutes. I was led into the main meeting room.
“There must have been 30 people. It was like an economics meeting at Goldman Sachs.
“I asked the girls if there was anything they would like to ask me. A long silence ensued until a voice came up: ‘What shoes are you wearing?’
“There was a strong inspiration in the room. I said “Hush Puppies”.
“The girls looked at each other and one of them said, ‘It’s okay, we can hire him’. »
