Sleb Safari: Katie Price is going to sing and nothing you say can stop her

Katie Price's pink unicorn fired its agent the moment this job was over

PULL up a pew Tom Jones; grab a chair Will.i.am; take a load off Anne-Marie and sit yourself down Olly Murs, there’s someone who wants to sing for you and she doesn’t even care if you hit that big red buzzer and swing round.

Businesswoman, equestrian, author, hair extension raffler and wedding day devotee Katie Price wants a singing career. Can she sing, you ask. Does it matter, Sleb Safari answers.

Katie did release an album with ex-husband Peter Andre back in 2006. A Whole New World featured duets such as Islands In The Stream, Endless Love and I’ve Had The Time Of My Life so it was nothing if not ambitious. And now she wants to build on that ‘success’.

Speaking to Fubar Radio hosts Bobby Norris and Stephen Leng on Access All Areas, Katie breezily confides that everyone tells her she cannot sing. Hopefully that’s not her opener when she meets record labels.

“Obviously I muck about on Instagram,” she told Bobby and Stephen.

“And when I say I want to be on The Masked Singer, I want to be on The Voice, then everyone takes the mickey out of me, saying, ‘Oh shut up Kate. You really think you can sing?’ I'm like, yeah, I can actually. And they're like, ‘well, I dunno what you hear’.”

As chance should have it her “chosen stallion” Carl Woods walked into the room at that point in the interview and Jordan asked him “Do you think I can sing?” “Absolutely not,” was his loving response.

Undeterred, Katie continued: “I've now bought myself a studio for YouTube. So, I'm going to do my karaoke versions, acoustic versions, of songs I want to do. I'm not giving up. I'm going to do it... If you don't want to hear it, don't tap on and listen.”

Instagram today, The Masked Singer tomorrow Katie, ignore the haters.

The Masked Singer would be a great fit for the Pricey. ITV won’t even need to splash out on a costume since Katie’s photo call dressing-up box is crammed with potential. There’s the unicorn outfit, the pantomime horse, the inflatable lips dress and... Sleb Safari could keep going for several more minutes but, in summary, Katie has been preparing for this show for her entire career.

Katie Price has been ready for The Masked Singer for some years now

Having the gift of a great singing voice isn’t essential but tenacity is and Katie has it in bucket loads.

Claire from Steps told The Guardian just last week that when the group auditioned for Pete Waterman and the Jive label “they signed us on the basis of one mimed performance – we just put on that demo of 5,6,7,8 and didn’t even pretend to have microphones”.

Armed with that knowledge Katie, go forth and conquer.

 

Oprah knows how to say Happy Birthday

HOW stunning – and extra – are the flowers Oprah sent to Alicia Keys for her birthday?

Alicia shared on Instagram that she received this “Stunning big birthday gift from my Aquarius sis @Oprah”.

How big a vase would you need for these bad boys do you reckon? Hot tub size?

Get back on the trampoline Angelina Jolie

AND so to Angelina Jolie, humanitarian, special envoy for the UN Refugee Council, mother of six, Hollywood star and possessor of stop-you-in-your-tracks beauty.

Angelina invited British Vogue round and she spoke about appreciating life and how her mother’s death taught her that no matter what age you are, that’s a victory.

“I’m looking forward to my fifties – I feel that I’m gonna hit my stride in my fifties. Though we were on the trampoline the other day, and the children said, ‘No, mom, don’t do that. You’ll hurt yourself.’

“And I thought, ‘God, isn’t that funny?’ There was a day I was an action star, and now the kids are telling me to get off the trampoline because I’ll hurt myself.”

From Lara Croft to Mum’s Gone Soft. Get back up on that trampoline Angelina and don’t listen to the whippersnappers.
