Right here, right now, right hereeee. Well, on @maximumpop you can have a chinwag to Bailey McConnell. He’s been pulling at our heart strings since we saw him on BGT. We then went and stalked him at Thorpe Park Live – my he can rock a bandana.
Welcome to another instalment of ‘MP! Art Attack’ this week the Neon Jungle girls have been getting all creative on canvas and that.
Ariana Grande may look cute and sweet, but don’t let those doe eyes and perfect hair fool you. The former teen starlet has grown up a lot over the past couple of years and with the release of her brand new album ‘My Everything’, has found a more mature (but still very much pop oriented) sound. However, she’s keen to point out that she’s still her own woman.
In a recent interview, Ms Grande responds to the critics who say she’s being told what to do…
‘I’ve seen people online saying, “It’s so sad she’s becoming a product of this industry – she’s wearing shorter and shorter skirts, and showing more and more skin’’,’ ‘I’m like: “Yeah, because I want to.” Believe me, everyone reading this, if I don’t want to do something, I will not do it, and I say that with every ounce of passion in my body.’
Well, that’s them told then! The ‘Problem’ singer also goes on to say;
‘I’m a very flexible person – but if I feel like you want me to compromise my views or myself as an artist, you can go f*** yourself. That’s something I’ve been careful about my whole career because I don’t want to do something that will shock or upset my younger fans – they’re the ones who’ve been with me since the beginning.’
So what do you lot think? Is Ariana right to defend herself? As always, you can have your say in the comments below…
Fans are always beside their idols, even more when they have to pour on them buckets of cold water.
Shut the front door. We have a Shawn Mendes appreciation post to end all Shawn Mendes appreciation posts (big call!).
The Canadian singer/songwriter who started serenading us on Vine a year ago is quickly becoming one of the most adored new faces in pop.
Here are 13 reasons why we adore him:
Now it’s pretty fair to say we love Room 94′s latest album ‘No Strings Attached’ and obviously we can’t wait to hear more stuff from the lads soon. Well the wait might not be as long as we think, they’ve only gone and got back in the studio already and recorded brand new material!
New music means a new video – the guys shot theirs just yesterday and we reckon it’s going to be pretty amazing stuff!
We took a few cheeky snaps on set; take a gander at what went down…
Ooooo who else can’t wait to feast their eyes on the new video?! If Kieran’s blue hair doesn’t make it a complete winner, then we don’t know what will!
If you haven’t checked out Shift K3Y and the pretty awesome video for his new single yet, then why not?! You need to sort this out!
The brand new single ‘I Know’ is out 22nd September and it’s seriously catchy! The track is his second single and follows on from his debut ‘Touch’, which hit the number three spot back in April. It’s sold over 150,000 copies to date and the video has stacked up over 3 million views on YouTube!
Ahh we feel like a proud mother…our fave lads from The Vamps have only gone and debuted at number ten on the Billboard 200 with their ‘Somebody to You’ EP – with a whopping 20,000 copies sold.
It’s fair to say it’s a pretty darn good EP, and we put our hands up to say we haven’t stopped listening to it since release. (If for some bizarre reason you still need some persuading to purchase it, take a gander at their latest video.)
If you didn’t know already, for some silly reason, the 1D lads are set to play the iHeartRadio festival in Las Vegas next month on the 19th and 20th of September. The boys will be sharing the stage with T Swizzle, Nicki Minaj, Coldplay, Ariana Grande and a bunch of other pretty darn amazing acts.
The lads filmed a little ‘history lesson’ on the festival, which proved to be rather insightful and completely ermmm factual….ahem. Give it a watch, you won’t regret it, but we can’t promise that any history lesson you endure afterwards will live up to it.
