Clash Of The Titans: A Kate-Agyness Feud?

  • KATE MOSS VERSUS AGYNESS DEYN! "'Kate can't stand her. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that Agy is her nemesis...It's not about Agy's personality, but what she represents. She's younger, fresher, everyone loves her and she's got everything ahead of her. Now she's singing with a band, something Kate has wanted to do for years. Kate's 34 now and she realises her days as a model are numbered. Everyone's calling Agy the new Kate Moss - and that hurts.'" [Daily Mail]
