Intensive care

katherine_jenkins“Opera singer” Katherine Jenkins canceled her appearance at last night’s National Television Awards due to (wait for it!) a “chest infection.” [digital spy]


  • MontyNostry says:

    Well, she cam just get another new chest.

  • Quanto Painy Fakor says:

    is that why she has those two big puffy things on her chest?

    • Harry says:

      That is what is called a two pronged antennae to pick up a remote signal to tell her to attempt to sing some note. Always wondered what ‘her interference trouble’ was? Happens a lot in cases where being a glam bimbo, is the first order of call.

  • mrmyster says:

    My goodness! That girl has got a lot to offer.
    You mean she sings, too? Hardly necessary!

  • Reggiani says:

    Had to check her out on youtube, Found an acceptable Habanera and some showtunes. Not in a class with the current crop of outstanding young lyric mezzos, but she has other attributes.

    • Sarah says:

      Don’t know about the level of acceptability of her Habanera, but you should listen to her mangled French in the Seguidilla!

  • Constantine A. Papas says:

    You mean her silicone prostheses are infected? If they are, she may become deflated for a while if they have to be removed!

  • operaddict says:

    I can see why a certain maestro/singer/director is interested in her career. It’s what’s up front that counts, infection or inflation notwithstanding.

  • 79CXR says:

    I’m much more interested in her boyfriend. Nicer Tits, and he can sing.

    My dear Gethin, I Love you, drop the fluffy one!!

  • Quanto Painy Fakor says:

    And from the other side of the Atlantic, don’t miss Opera Chic’s latest fashion statements in W Magazine:

  • Harry says:

    Remember the entire Chapter 10(?) of Gore Vidal’s Myra Breckenbridge when she (also Myron) had to remove her silicone leaking implants…it comprised just two short identical alarming sentences : “Where are my Breasts?”

    Perhaps K.J’s chest infection was caused by use of unrefined helium balloon gas; or it is in short supply, these past few weeks. A substitution with laughing gas might also do wonders for her voice.

  • Harry says:

    Or a quick course of chest acupuncture with hat pins might correct her troubling condition.
