#1 Chris Moyles: Even though he is leaving Radio 1, he will always be remembered as one of the most controversial radio hosts in modern history. He’s annoyed music legend John Peel and his employers at the BBC, in addition he has been knocked for “glamorizing” binge drinking, and not to mention he had a little issue tip-toeing on the tightrope of racism with Halle Berry. Needless to say, his numbers were off the charts, so he will definitely be missed on the airways.
#2 Things Romney Should Say to the NAACP: If that wasn’t one of the funniest tweet trends to click on ever then…well, whatever, it initially sounds pretty hilarious. The best response we saw so far was “Just call me R-Money” and “I’m not prejudiced, I watched Roots twice and met Bobby Brown.” Romney doesn’t seem to be doing so well in the public eye lately, after detrimental advertisements by Mr. Pres, only about 16% seem to be leaning towards this Mormon Republican. We at Cobalt, while we feel bad for the guy, we also find the banter exceedingly entertaining between these two candidates.
#3 London Fashion Week: Despite the fact that this fashion event takes place in September (and it’s July…) LFW is already making headlines. The latest news is that Preen by Thorton Bregazzi is returning to the London runways, which obviously is a cause for excitement. The brand is an edgy design marriage between Justin Thorton and Thea Bregazzi, featuring design aesthetics such as Victorian, deconstruction, utilitarian, and recycling, making it a unique addition to the Notting Hill streets (that’s in London for those of us who don’t use “Blimey” and “Codswallop” on a regular basis.)
#4 Jessica Biel: Being smitten with Justin Timberlake, these two are our favorite soon-to-be-married-celebrities as of right now. Biel admitted yesterday afternoon that Timberlake may have better taste than she does, from picking out the gorgeous bling on her left hand, to picking out what she wears in the morning. Gentlemen, take a leaf from Justin’s book, be the man and still have a rockin’ sense of style.
