Wubba Wubba Wubba! Today (8/27) is Downtown Julie Brown’s birthday. The former MTV VJ was born in England and started in showbiz as a dancer on Britain’s Top of the Pops in 1980. That was followed by a stint as a presenter on England’s music channel, Music Box. Julie went on to become an MTV VJ in the late 80s hosting the Club MTV show. From this came her famous catchphrase “Wubba Wubba Wubba.” Today is also No Doubt bassist Tony Kanal’s birthday. He secretly dated Gwen Stefani until the band was in the studio working on their third album Tragic Kingdom. The couple’s breakup inspired Gwen to write the song “Don’t Speak.”
Downtown Julie Brown and Tony Kanal are both in their 40s. Who’s older?
