Rattle & Scum

Unless – and dear God I hope so – there’s a seething, sordid underbelly to this story (the woman possesses photographic evidence of Paul “you can call me Bono” Hewson licking the armpit of Chris “whingeing student” Martin while Bob Geldof dances around them wearing only his underpants and a hat made of Ethiopian Orphan-skin, let’s say), I’d be tempted to call this the most ugly example of celebrity egomania you’re ever likely to see…

Rock group U2 have won a legal battle against their former stylist, forcing her to hand over a cowboy hat and clothes she took from them in 1987… U2 had been fighting with Ms Cashman over the ownership of a Stetson hat, a pair of metal hooped earrings, a green sweatshirt and a pair of black trousers.
They were also trying to retrieve a number of other items which had been seen in her flat, including a video tape and monitor, rosary beads and hundreds of photographs.
