Quote of the week: Marianne Faithfull on Serge Gainsbourg

"No, I’m one of the few women he didn’t offer it to thankfully. God! No, we were really, really good friends but he never wanted to fuck me, which is very good I think. He offered it to everyone else, fucked them and then decided they weren’t quite right. And then he found Jane." Marianne Faithfull on Serge Gainsbourg.

Tino Sehgal in Athens



Tino Sehgal will be presenting a new piece in and around the Roman Agora in Athens from 25 September to 28 October 2014. The exhibition, produced by Asad Raza, marks the first time a major work of Sehgal’s will be presented outdoors and this is very exciting! 

This exhibition arises from the initiative to mount Sehgal’s works in the ancient sites of Athens and NEON’s ongoing  commitment to activating public spaces and enhancing public life throughout the city of Athens. It will take place in the Roman Agora and in an adjacent indoor location and will operate every day for the Agora’s full opening hours and, indoors, into the night. The installations to be shown are constructed of choreography, song, and peripatetic philosophical conversation.

“When I visited the ancient sites of Athens, where commercial, cultural, social and philosophical exchange took place, where knowledge passed through and was transferred between bodies, I had the distinct feeling that the embodied and dialogical elements in Sehgal’s work would have a special resonance here,” says writer and producer Raza.

When in Mykonos, stay at Cavo Tagoo


If you're looking for a hotel / villa in Mykonos, look no further! Cavo Tagoo, located in the Greek island of Mykonos, is THE BEST HOTEL! Not only the best hotel in Mykonos, but perhaps the best in the world.

I was invited to spend several nights in this heaven and I surely wasn’t disappointed.

The outstanding, friendly service and carefully crafted luxury that you can enjoy in every room make for the perfect stay in Mykonos.

The hotel comprises 80 individually decorated and designed luxury rooms and suites, each in subtle blue, rose, or fuchsia nuances, with stunning views over the Aegean sea. Cavo Tagoo Spa offers relaxing and rejuvenating spa treatments and massages, for another relaxing moment.

Each room is carefully decorated, and feature either a private jacuzzi or a private pool. I can’t seem to think of any other hotel in the world that offers private pool. All private sea view villas with pool of this Mykonos Town hotel in Greece come complete with a fabulous spacious terrace boasting cozy lounging areas.

The luxurious villas showcase contemporary, chic furnishings, excellent beauty products and unrivalled amenities ensuring the most amazing holiday in Mykonos.

Its aquarium pool lounge bar utilises wooden decks inspired by the Far East, where guests can sip cocktails and listen to changing mood music throughout the night which is what I did for a whole day while in Mykonos.

In a nutshell: the view, the individual pool/jacuzzi, the 38m saltwater infinity pool, accompanied by oversized day beds beside the pool, the Chanel books in each bedroom, the luxurious details, the delicious breakfast make your stay at Cavo Tagoo a fantastic experience. I highly recommend it.

British stars stand up to cancer






Tom Hardy, Benedict Cumberbatch, Michelle Dockery, Gillian Anderson, Idris Elba, Eddie Redmayne, Anna Friel, Sheridan Smith and Steve Coogan have come together to support Stand Up To Cancer.

They’ve been part of an exclusive short film and set of photographs shot by renowned photographer and film director, Greg Williams.

The set of photographs accompanying the film also demonstrate the urgent message that we need to act now to accelerate new cancer treatments to UK patients and save more lives.

Greg Williams said: “It’s been an honour to be involved in the Stand Up To Cancer campaign. I lost my mum to cancer, something I feel strongly that no one should ever have to experience.  By making this film and collection of images, I’ve been able to help to bring Stand Up To Cancer’s vital work to the fore and help build momentum in the fight against cancer.”
