A British woman was named as the only fatality of the helicopter
crash which happened in New York City in October. The woman, who
lived in Australia, was one of five people - four passengers and a
pilot - on board the aircraft when it came down. She was named as
Sonia Marra Nicholson and was in the helicopter with her partner,
Helen Tomaski, and mother and father, Harriet and Paul. They were
in Manhattan celebrating her 40th birthday.
Chart-topping singer/songwriter Jessie J scooped four awards at
this year's MOBOs - winning in four of the five categories she was
nominated in. The bisexual singer won Best UK Act, Best Newcomer,
Best Song for Do It Like A Dude and Best Album for Who You Are. On
receiving the accolade in central London, she said:"I just want to
say the biggest thank you to my fans because I watched this last
year by myself in my living room and no one knew who I was and now
I just won best album. "That is epic. Thank you everyone."
Television star and fashion adviser Mary Portas apologised to the
four women in David Cameron's Cabinet she called "an ugly bunch".
As reported on PinkPaper.com, Portas - who is retail adviser to the
Prime Minister during the high street's current economic slump -
made the comments in an issue of Heat magazine. She told them: "I
mean, what an ugly bunch. I could not look at them. They do dress
up for my meetings, but I just want to go, 'Please no, not that
necklace, not that skirt. I'd say let's just put a bit of sex and
glamour in there!'".
