    Fashion icon Alexander McQueen hangs himself over mothers death

    London, Feb 12 : The fashion world is mourning the shock suicide of British designer Alexander McQueen, best known for producing some of the most controversial collections of the past two decades.

    The iconic fashion designer hanged himself because he was overcome with grief following his mother Joyce's death 10 days ago, reports The Mirror.

    The stars of the industry paid tribute to McQueen, 40, and hailed him as the brightest talent of his generation.

    Alexandra Shulman, editor of British Vogue, said: "McQueen influenced a whole generation of designers. His brilliant imagination knew no bounds."

    Designer Jeff Banks said: "He was a strange combination of intellect and manufacturing capability."

    Fellow British designer Katharine Hamnett said: "He was a genius. What a terrible, tragic waste."

    The body of McQueen, whose real Christian name was Lee, was found yesterday at his flat in London's Mayfair. Joyce's funeral had been due to take place today.

    For the past few days McQueen was posting a series of Twitter updates that showed how traumatised he was following his mum's death.

    On February 3, he said: "My mother passed away yesterday if it she had not [had} me nor would you RIP mumx." A minute later he added: "But life must go on!"

    On Sunday evening McQueen wrote: "Been a f****** awful week but my friends have been great but now i have to some how pull myself together."

    A close friend said: "We are all in a state of total shock. Nobody can believe this has happened.

    "He was obviously so close to his mum and was devastated by her death. But nobody saw this coming. His private pain must have been unimaginable."

    Devastated Kate Moss scrapped all her business engagements following the news of McQueen's death.

    A source said: "Kate is obviously really upset."

    Victoria Beckham led showbiz tributes, saying: "Today the fashion industry has lost a true great. An icon. He made all he touched beautiful and will be desperately missed."

    Naomi Campbell, described by McQueen as his muse, said: "I am truly devastated to lose my close friend. His talent had no boundaries and he was an inspiration to everyone."

    X Factor judge Cheryl Cole, who regularly wore his designs, said: "Fashion has lost one of its most inspirational figures."

    Actress Helena Bonham Carter declared: "It's absolutely tragic. What horrible news.

    "It's just horrendous to think that someone was so devastated by his mother dying. He had such lovely vision, originality comes quite hard these days."

    This was all over the news yesterday like he was some sort of loss to the world. Victoria Beckham was "devastated" apparently.

    Such an icon that hardly anyone knew who the fuck he is.

    This ranks right up there with the death of Doraemon.
    A sad loss indeed.

    Hmmm. I would bet the problem is much deeper than that.

    Frisbee inventor dies

    MONROE, Utah - Walter Fredrick Morrison, the man credited with inventing the Frisbee, has died. He was 90.

    State Rep. Kay McIff, an attorney who once represented Morrison in a royalties case, says Morrison died at his home Tuesday. McIff is from Richfield, Morrison's original hometown.

    Morrison sold the production and manufacturing rights to his "Pluto Platter" in 1957. The plastic flying disc was later renamed the "Frisbee," with sales surpassing 200 million discs.

    It is now a staple at beaches and college campuses across the country and spawned sports like Frisbee golf and the team sport Ultimate.
    Morrison co-wrote a book with Frisbee enthusiast and historian Phil Kennedy in 2001.

    Kennedy released a brief statement about Morrison on Thursday, wishing his late friend "smoooooth flights."
