Angry Johnny Hates Jazz star Calvin Hayes has blasted the British record industry for snubbing his lover, Kim Wilde.
Sexy Kim has not been nominated in a single category for the prestigious Brit awards whcih will be announced next year.
“It’s outrageous – just how successful does anyone have to be before they get a nomination?”, stormed Calvin. “Kim is devastated. I know I’m biased but she’s had her biggest year ever. She successfully supported Michael Jackson thoughout his summer shows and has had a string of hits.”
Calvin, who revealed the romance exclusively to the Club last May, spoke openly about his feelings for the beautiful pop superstar.
“There seems no point in denying it now”, he says. “We’ve been together for months and we’re really happy.”
He is spending Christmas with Kim’s family in London and the pair plan to take off for a romantic skiing trip at the New Year.
