Celebrities can’t seem to stop talking about Kate these days; Tori Amos is questioned by readers of the latest Attitude magazine and Brian Chambers of Brixton asked, “How many Kate Bush records do you own?” to which Tori replied, “Well I owned two, which are of course Hounds Of Love and the one after, The Sensual World. I really love those two. Someone gave me The Red Shoes, but then someone stole it …” (thanks to Boolbar) and on the 4th September, the UK Channel 4 show “The Big Breakfast” interviewed film star Nicole Kidman. She discussed her role in the film musical “Moulin Rouge” and said that she had insisted on singing all her songs herself. When asked what singers she liked she replied “Ella and Kate Bush”.

It’s about an 18 year old identical twin. Juliet, one of the two sisters, who listens to Kate Bush music. She has a tape of ‘Hounds of Love’ Juliet got to know about Kate’s music through her brother Paul. In the book a few characters go see the play of ‘Wuthering Heights’. Sounds like the Irish writer, Julian Gough, must be a Kate Bush fan himself.”
