EDGE Columnists » Star Gazing

Despite his mother’s warning that watching too much television would not amount to anything, Tim Parks has over the past 11 years parlayed his expansive knowledge of the entertainment industry into two monthly columns, "Gaywatch" and "Hollywood," as his way to pay homage to Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw character in "Sex and the City."

Among his biggest gets have been Janet Jackson, Kylie Minogue, Stevie Nicks, Chelsea Handler, Margaret Cho, Olivia Newton-John and too many to name here!
