On the BBC2 TV New year musical entertainment programme 'Jules
Hootenanny', after her performance the singer Annie Lennox had a brief
chat with the host.
Jules said 'And what is your recommendation for 2009?'
After a brief pause, Annie said, 'Well, 2009 is going to be a
catastrophic year. I recommend staying in bed'. Unsettled, trying to
make a joke of it, Jules said, 'So your recommendation for 2009 is to
stay in bed!', then laughed and swiftly moved on to another guest.

Unexpected serious comment on a light entertainment show.
