We're just hearing news that eccentric English pop diva Kate Bush has been living with a seven foot swan for the past 6 months. Questioned outside Bush's private studio, Kate's brother Paddy was unable to deny the reports, thus feeding a worldwide rumour-clasm among Bush fans eagerly awaiting her first LP release in over three decades.
"Kate's always been odd", admitted Paddy, " and it's true that she's recently attempted to stop anglers from using the stretch of river near the island on the Thames on which she is now resident. However, I am not saying that this has anything to do with the fact that Steve...I mean the hypothetical swan is fearful of swallowing lead shot from their fishing weights, absolutely not - I never said that. Obviously this would be a terrible problem if there were a large swan cohabiting with Katie as they can choke on the blighters when they're feeding. But how you can jump from Kate's legitimate concerns for the local birdlife to thinking she's been having it away with a large waterfowl called Steve, I really do not know."
Kate Bush, in full Lionheart regalia, administers relief to Steve the Swan.
Kate's new album "Aerial" is released next month and the new single, "King of the Mountain" features a cover of an as yet un-named T-Rex song...
Love on y'all,
