Paper Monitor

10:08 UK time, Tuesday, 13 February 2007

A service highlighting the riches of the daily press.

It's Brits week. And you know what that means… lots of strident music business PRs touting their clients around the papers. Amy Winehouse's people are certainly earning their crust – landing her an "exclusive" double-page interview in the Daily Mirror, where we learn that La Winehouse "used to smoke £200 of pot a week" and likes a drink or twelve.

While the Mirror is counting down to the Brits this week - "One day to go" - the Sun is counting up "Brit Awards week: Day 2". And who has it bagged for its double-page spread interview? Non other than Amy Winehouse, who tells the paper about her, you guessed it, former £200 a day marijuana habit and the fact that she likes a drink or twelve. At least the Sun has the good grace not to call its story an exclusive.

Oh well, maybe it was just a one-off; a mix-up by the publicity people. These things happen once in a while. So who do the red tops have lined up for their Wednesday Brits interview?

"Tomorrow: Bigmouth Host Russell Brand" – the Sun.

"Tomorrow: Russell Brand on his women" – the Mirror.
