GIRL ABOUT TOWN: So what is feminist actress Emma Watson's top party song? A rap 'about date-rape'

Actress Emma Watson may be a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador but her choice in music does little to promote the feminist cause.

When the Harry Potter star was allowed to choose the final song of the evening at the Harper’s Bazaar Women of The Year after-party at Claridge’s last week, she selected a controversial rap that alludes to date-rape.

My spies tell me that when organisers announced that the party was about to finish, Emma, right, joined a chorus of people chanting: ‘One more song!’ Eventually the DJ relented and allowed Emma to choose one more track – and she didn’t hesitate to request Timber by American rapper Pitbull. The song is about the protagonist trying to get women so drunk that they will sleep with him, despite having previously turned him down when sober.

Earlier, the crowd had been dancing to a DJ set by Jacobi Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe – the stepbrother of Prince Harry’s ex Cressida Bonas. At one stage he allowed Emma into the DJ booth, such was her enthusiasm for the party.

 

Theresa and her Royal ties

Fashion conscious Theresa May has given her seal of approval to silk scarves made by a charity set by Princess Eugenie.

The PM wore the Key To Freedom’s scarf when she and Eugenie, above, attended a Westminster Abbey service last month to commemorate the work of William Wilberforce and raise awareness about modern-day slavery.

Key To Freedom was set up by Eugenie, her sister Beatrice and their father Prince Andrew to give vulnerable women from India a job making the scarves.

A source close to Eugenie said she was delighted by the PM’s endorsement. Perhaps some kitten heels next?

 

Jemima Khan spent last week fielding calls from prospective buyers clamouring to purchase her lovely £7.95 million house in West London, after she decided to sell it because her two children have grown up.

But when she eventually moves out of the much-loved family home she will not be found nesting with PR guru Matthew Freud, as the pair have parted ways, I am sorry to report.

Heiress Jemima, 42, and Matthew, 53 – who was previously married to Rupert Murdoch’s daughter Elisabeth – have been pals for years, but in April the friendship developed into romance.

Now the couple have decided to go back to just being friends.
