Ariana Grande and Mac Miller are already one of our fave pop power couples ever. We’ve always shipped them to kingdom come and we’re so glad they’ve finally gone official. But something about the media treatment of Ariller has bothered us.
When Ari appeared on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show on 15th September she came under fire for her “rude” and “obnoxious” manner.
Everything seemed to go well until Seacrest abruptly started asking about her relationship with Mac, bringing up this Insta post and of the two of them.

Despite releasing their debut album ‘Room On the 3rd Floor’ more than 12 years ago, there’s a reason why McFly still manage to sell out arenas. While countless other boybands have come and gone there is something wonderful in the way that McFly have managed to remain fresh and current for so long.
Dougie, Harry, Danny and Tom are coming to the end of their sell-out UK-wide ‘Anthology Tour’ which sees them playing all of their albums in full across three nights in one venue. It just serves to highlight the strength of their back catalogue that there is enough to please fans even if they do only play tracks from one album (plus a few cheeky crowdpleasers).
But, the quality of the music aside, the best thing about McFly is that they have never lost that spark that they had back in 2004. They play mega-hits like ‘5 Colours in her Hair’ and ‘Obviously’ with the same excitement as they did when they first started and they clearly aren’t sick of each other one bit!
Here’s why McFly are the nicest guys in pop:

There was no messing around. The boys went straight into ‘5 Colours in her Hair’ and ‘Obviously’, which got the set off to a roaring start.
