DIARY: Bell Pottinger PR's Staton has brief encounter with Eminem at the Brits

Here at the LA Academy of Rap-ademia, Diary is being put through

its paces in the art of bad-ass rapping. Thanks to the expert tuition of

MC Jazzy F Cool, we can now accelerate from slouching with hands in

pockets, to flicking V-signs in a competent 0.34 seconds.

However the most important lesson we learned from Mr Cool (BSc), was to

always ensure our clothes are securely fastened before venturing out in


Strange then, that it took Bell Pottinger PR executive Jenna Staton to

notice that the dungarees of our classmate and ferocious gay rights

activist Eminem had become unfastened during the course of his Brit

Awards performance last week.

With no thought of the burly minders following the star (or indeed the

possibility that Sir Elton John could be in the vicinity), Jenna stooped

to fasten the troublesome safety pin (what's the matter, Marshall?

Normal pins too dangerous for you?), and received a hug from the star

for her trouble.

Delighted with her act of arch-blaggery, Jenna informed Diary: 'I don't

know why people say what they do about him. He's really nice.'

However, it was a brief encounter, as the security men soon recovered to

bundle the PR popstrel out of the multi- millionaire's way.
