The Edge Welcomes Margot Robbie And Bans Bieber



The Edge Welcomes Margot Robbie And Bans Bieber

The Edge Afternoons with Guy, Sharyn & Clint welcomed Hollywood’s sexiest new star Margot Robbie to NZ where she is filming a new movie in Canterbury. Margot stars in the Oscar nominated picture The Wolf of Wall Street.

She gave Guy, Sharyn & Clint an exclusive interview after they offered $1,000 to any listener that persuaded Margot to call The Edge. After hundreds of tweets from The Edge listeners to the star’s Twitter account she finally contacted the show.

“I was getting text messages, the crew members were coming up on set and telling me about it, I was getting tweets, I was inundated with requests. Everybody wants the thousand bucks, but I’ve decided to claim the thousand bucks myself, and as much as I would like to donate it to crew drinks this weekend, I would like to instead give it to the Port Levy Volunteer Fire Service and the local marae.”

She set the record straight about whether she was dating Orlando Bloom, if she hooked up with Leonardo DiCaprio and apologised on behalf of The Wolf of Wall Street cast for the terrible New Zealand accents a group of American’s did in the final scene.

“I actually specifically said that to Marty [Scorsese]: why didn’t you get actual Kiwis to do the scenes? Why did you get Americans playing Kiwis?”

After welcoming one celebrity, The Edge is farewelling another with listeners voting to join radio stations all over the world by banning all Justin Bieber songs by an overwhelming majority of 64%.

The ban comes after Justin Bieber’s behaviour has been less than favourable in the press. Justin has come under scrutiny for allegedly taking part in illegal street racing, driving under the influence, assaulting his limo driver and numerous other indiscretions.

The Edge has also put out a $1,000 ‘no Bieber’ guarantee. So if any listener hears a Bieber song played in its entirety whilst the ban is in place on The Edge, they will receive the cash.

Marty & Steph from The Edge Nightshow who polled the audience said “It was an overwhelming response to ban Justin and it will be up to the audience if, and when, he gets back onto the playlist”.

Scoop Review Of Books: No Longer An Island

Simon Nathan reviews 'Zealandia: Our Continent Revealed': The idea that New Zealand is part of a large submerged continent is not new... There was renewed interest in the extent of offshore New Zealand from the 1970s onwards with the start of offshore drilling for oil and gas, and this was given impetus by a UN agreement which allowed countries to claim an Extended Continental Shelf (ECS).

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
