East 17: 'Barlow's Kids Will Have Daddy Issues'
British boy band EAST 17 have launched a blistering attack on their 1990s chart rivals Take That, insisting singer Gary Barlow's children will have "daddy issues". The STEAM stars, who played a London reunion gig last night (30MAY06) in response to Take That's 26-date UK stadium tour, poked fun at Barlow's limited dancing talents, claiming his young kids Daniel and EMILY will be psychologically damaged by the sight. Singer/songwriter TONY MORTIMER says, "My friend's a Take That fan and loves Gary but when he came on stage last month and started dancing she just burst out laughing. "I have a 13-year-old daughter. If I'd done that, and been up on stage like that, she'd be embarrassed and tell me off. "But his kids are very young so hopefully they'll look back and understand. Or else say, 'Look here dad, we need to talk about this.' It's atrocious."
