Peaches Geldof passed away today at the age of just 25. Kent Police told the BBC, “At this stage, the death is being treated as unexplained and sudden.”
She was the daughter of Bob Geldof and Paula Yates, who she lost when she was only 11 to a drug overdose.
Peaches was married to Thomas Cohen with whom she had two sons, Astala, 1, and Phaedra, who is turning 1 on April 24th. Before marrying Cohen she dated director Eli Roth and married Max Drummey in Vegas when she was just 19, the two separated after just 6 months.
So sad because she had her two boys and her whole life to look forward to.
One of the things that Sting is known for his 5 hour tantric sex romps with his wife Trudy Styler and now she is talking about how that erotic tale got started. Here is what she told Daily Mail:
“Do you know who I blame for that? Bob Geldof. Him and Sting had gone to do an interview with a rock journalist, and the interview turned into a drinking session.
At one point, the journalist asked how long they could go for, and Geldof said he was a three-minute man, but, as Sting did yoga, he could probably go for hours. And Sting said ‘Well, haven’t you heard of tantric sex?’
So Sting explained that it is all about being intimate, about caring for your partner, really engaging in intimacy before you, you know… have sex. And that’s the premise of tantra, really. It’s simply engagement with your partner.”
Wait forget that Sting doesn’t actually go hours in bed as he claims, the Boomtown Rats singer can only go for three minutes. Actually I always pictured him being a quickie, and to be honest I picture The Police singer going for even less than that.
Peaches Geldof is hosting a show called OMG over in The UK and looks and sounds like she a major OMG moment during it. Bob Geldof’s daughter seems to have let a loud fart go while she was interviewing some vampires. After watching the video I think it will take more than a Band-Aid applied to her a$$ to heal that embarrassment.
Since it was her first show, I wonder if the reviews were like…”It stinks”, “Who dealt it?”, “Cut the cheese” and “I smell disaster”. If you have more, then let your fart jokes begin…
UPDATE: Here is what Peaches Tweeted had happened, “Everyones saying I farted on #OMG- It was actually my shoes on the leather sofa,but thats not to say I dont let off massive farts sometimes.” Do you believe her or do you still think she ripped a big smelly one?
Bob Geldof is rumored to have gone off on Al Gore's Live Earth in a Dutch Newspaper according to AP. In the interview Geldof said, "I hope they're a success. But why is (Gore) actually organizing them? To make us aware of the greenhouse effect? Everybody's known about that problem for years. We are all (expletive) conscious of global warming," he added. "I would only organize (Live Earth) if I could go on stage and announce concrete environmental measures from the American presidential candidates, Congress or major corporations. They haven't got those guarantees, so it's just an enormous pop concert or the umpteenth time that, say, Madonna or Coldplay get up on stage." Not only did he knock the concert he also knocked the name, "It sounds like Live 8," he told the paper. "We're getting lots of responses from people who think we are organizing it."
To me it sounds like Geldof is jealous that he was not asked to be part of it and that someone else was able to plan a worldwide benefit concert with better names. Let's be real what the heck was Live 8 all about? To make a statement to the G8 Summit? What the heck is G8 Summit? What did his concert do? And who benefited from it? Live 8 was all about Geldof's ego.
Bob Geldof needs to brush his hair and get over himself.
Could you imagine what Bob Geldof would've done to her if she did? Maybe other stars can follow her example how to get out of a car without showing off what color underwear they are wearing or if the carpets match the drapes?
BOB Geldof’s Live 8 concerts cost £8.1million to stage, accounts reveal. The July 2005 gigs in 10 cities across the world were aimed at putting pressure on G8 world leaders to help end poverty in Africa. Figures from Live 8 Limited show it made £11.1million from sponsorship, TV rights, merchandise and hospitality from the concerts, watched by three billion people. Performers at the Hyde Park concert in London included Madonna and U2. Organisers Bob Geldof and Harvey Goldsmith were left with £2.7million profits from Live 8 – which went to the Band Aid Trust. It handled the millions made by 1985’s Live Aid. Worldwide, Live 8 raised £5million from corporate sponsors, including EMI group Nokia, MTV and Walt Disney. Another £2.6million came from the text message ticket lottery with British TV rights raising £1million. Sales of the £1 white Make Poverty History wristbands brought in £226,000 and merchandising raised another £1.7million. A massive £320,000 was taken in donations for the Make Poverty History campaign. Geldof and Goldsmith did not charge expenses or for their time.
As another unflattering portrait of Peaches Geldof emerged, she was defended by an unlikely source – her father.Sir Bob has been a stern critic in the past of his 17-year-old daughter’s penchant for partying.But he insisted to friends that she was ‘just a normal child’ and ‘an all right kid’.He spoke of his love and pride for Peaches, one of three daughters he fathered with Paula Yates, and went on to speak of the difficult ‘family story’ – a reference to Paula’s death from an overdose.And in his usual forthright manner, he added that if he ever thought she really was in any danger, he would go ‘f***ing ballistic’ at her ‘like only Bob Geldof can’.The 55-year-old former pop star, now most famous as the organiser of Live Aid and Live 8, reacted to pictures showing Peaches having what looked like a paper cone inserted into her nostril by a friend.They were apparently taken in the early hours at an after-gig party thrown by a bunch of her aspiring rock star friends in South-West London.Geldof told friends: "As a dad, I just get extraordinarily annoyed at the accusations that have been levelled at her recently."She is a 17-year-old girl. She is allowed to go to no more parties really than other kids go to. She goes to a rock festival. She does a DJ thing on the odd occasion for 80 quid a night. I mean, give her a break."The pictures of her (with a paper cone to her nose) are a great load of s***. It’s just too much. She is only 17. I’m p***ed off about all the stuff that seems to circulate around her."Sir Bob then said he did not think Peaches was a fair target for criticism following her mother’s tragic death, despite the fact that she appeared to court publicity by trying to break into television and having her own newspaper column.He said: "I know our family story. I know she writes stuff and does TV stuff. But f***, she’s a 17-yearold kid who did really well in her AS-levels and now she has gone on to do A-levels. That’s the reality of quite a normal child. That’s where I’m at with this situation."He then warned that he would put her straight in no uncertain terms if she ever got into serious trouble. If she went off the track I would go f***ing ballistic, you know. She’s a pain in the a*** sometimes like all kids but she’s all right. She’s an all right kid and she does all right for herself given the circumstances."If I honestly thought she was doing anything worrying that I should be concerned about, I would go f***ing berserk."You know what I can be like. But that is not what is going on with her. She’s doing just fine. I really want to give her a break."
Peaches Geldof’s recent excessive spending has worried her father Bob. The 17-year-old has flown to the Ibiza Rocks festival, where she plans to DJ alongside friend Fiona Richie under the name Trash Pussies. After meeting up with Bodyrockers star Kaz James in Santa Eulalia, Peaches splashed out £4,000 on champagne to impress the musician.A source told the Daily Star, "Peaches didn’t realise how expensive it would all be. She really wants Trash Pussies to make it as credible DJs. So it would really help to have the backing of the Bodyrockers. And it was obvious she has a massive crush on Kaz."His past relationship with Kate Moss also increases his cool status. So she thought it was worth every penny."Bob is now said to have ended his daughter’s monthly allowance until she appreciates the value of money.The insider added, "Peaches is sorry about upsetting her dad and she doesn’t know how to persuade him to start paying her again."
MICHAEL HUTCHENCE’s mother PATRICIA GLASSOP claims her granddaughter TIGER LILY wants to leave her home in Britain with her half-sisters and adoptive father SIR BOB GELDOF, to live with her Australian family. Tiger Lily, 10, was orphaned in September 2000 when her mother PAULA YATES died of an accidental drug overdose. The youngster’s father, INXS frontman Hutchence, committed suicide in a Sydney hotel room in November 1997. Following Yates’ death, her ex-husband SIR BOB GELDOF was made legal guardian of Tiger Lily and is currently bringing her up alongside her half-sisters FIFI, PEACHES and PIXIE. However, Glassop, who lives in the Queensland region of Australia, claims her granddaughter has decided she wants to move to Australia following a visit down under in April (06), when she was accompanied by Geldof. Glassop tells Australian magazine New Idea that Tiger Lily phoned her recently from London and said, "I love you and Grandpa and I want to live with you." Glassop reveals Tiger Lily is getting inquisitive about her late father, saying, "She would look at photos of her dad as a 10-year-old in his Boy Scout uniform, gently run her fingers over the pictures and ask us to tell her another story about him."
Live 8 hero Bob Geldof has been forced to cancel two concerts in Italy because of lack of public interest, after only 45 people turned up to see him perform in Milan. Geldof walked out of Milan’s 12,000-capacity Arena Civica on Friday without playing, given the paltry attendance. His manager explained that a concert for less than 400 people would not be viable, Italy’s La Stampa newspaper reported Saturday.The 54-year-old Irish rocker, who said he had flown in from South Africa for the gig, sought to placate angry fans afterwards by promising to give a free concert in September.A scheduled performance in Rome on Saturday night, for which 300 tickets had been sold, was also cancelled, La Stampa said.
