Myleene Klass Insures Fingers For $1.6 Million
September 17, 2003 – The Sun reports former Hear’Say singer Myleene, who plays piano, violin and harp, is having her hands underwritten for £1million. The move mimics reports that had Jennifer Lopez insure her bottom for a reported $1 billion. “J.Lo had her bum insured for loads of money but my hands at least have a purpose. Her bum doesn’t really do anything,” Myleene said. The performers record bosses requested the policy after an accident in the kitchen. “I think they wanted an insurance policy because I burnt my finger the other day,” she said. “I was opening a microwave meal and hurt myself because it was so hot. They were worried I wasn’t looking after myself. But I was surprised when they asked me to insure my hands for that amount – that’s £100,000 for every finger!” Read more.
Myleene Klass Is Moving On To A New Image
September 10, 2003 – Former Hear’Say singer Myleene explained to EDP that her new album marked a departure from her old pop-persona and said she aimed to fly the flag for British female artists. “American singers like Britney Spears and Madonna continue to do really well over here, but I would like to provide something a bit different and prove that home-grown talent has an important place in the British music industry,” she said. “I also want to demonstrate that classical music can be enjoyed by everyone and now my look is a little more grown-up as I want people to understand that just because you are a classical musician, you do not have to wear gowns.” Myleene revealed that tracks on the album would include versions of Daniel Bedingfield’s hit ‘If You’re Not The One’ and ‘November Rain’ by Guns and Roses, along with Beethoven’s ‘Moonlight Sonata’.
September 4, 2003 – Busty former Hear’Say star Myleene Klass was spotted out at swanky London restaurant The Ivy looking much thinner than her days with the pop group. “She was almost unrecognizable as the girl who was in Hear’Say,” remarked a fellow diner. “She didn’t eat loads but she wasn’t picking at a lettuce leaf either.”
