Two dastardly Danish dames have misbehaved this week, causing varying levels of offense. One has only let herself down, the another has managed to upset 1.35 billion people.

Linkoban, a Danish rapper of Chinese origin who goes under the name of Ling Ly in China, defied the country to play several songs blacklisted by its ministry of culture.

Linkoban had been invited to play at InMusic – China’s answer to Woodstock, which is held every year in Hebei in the last week in July. But she withdrew after most of her songs were put on a blacklist.

“We sent five songs with lyrics to the Chinese Ministry of Culture,” Linkoban’s manager, Kettil Myrstrand, told the media. “Only one out of five songs was approved by the ministry, with no further explanation.”
Instead Linkoban ended up performing at two nightclubs in Beijing. Needless to say, the Chinese state was not amused.

Not to be outdone, Brigitte Nielsen has once again been making headlines for all the wrong reasons after passing out in an LA park on Saturday. The 49-year-old professional reality TV star was seen drinking out of a Popov Vodka bottle and chain-smoking before what appeared to be vomiting behind a bench. She then used mouthwash before exiting the park through a bush.

Nielsen – who rose to fame through her marriage and subsequent divorce to Sylvester Stallone in the 1980s – first entered rehab in 2007, and has since spoken out about the damaging effect her alcoholism has had on her life, saying it is something she “lives with every day”.

Provided, of course, she can remember the day in question, that is.
