Sweden makes the best pop music, it’s a known fact. From super-producers and writers like Max Martin (Kelly Clarkson and Britney) and Rami Yacoub (One Direction) to singers like Robyn. So you’d think that the singers that come out of their reality shows were bloody ace too, right? Meet Tove Styrke, third-place on Swedish Idol in 2009 who is ready to pounce on the UK with her new single and EP; Borderline. Let’s have a listen, shall we?
Bet you weren’t expecting an electro-pop reggae mash-up, eh? Well, now that we have your attention let’s get to the point. We were lucky enough to go down and meet Tove after her shows in London earlier this month and, being the iconic interviewers we are, asked her stupid questions about food… Continue reading
We must have been very good this week as we’ve had not only one but two live award show performances from the 1D lads!
Last night the boys jetted all the way to Australia especially to attend and perform at The Arias Awards just days after The American Music Awards and it was amazing.
Watch them perform Steal My Girl below.
Just amazing, boys.
Last night saw The Aria Awards 2014 in Sydney, Australia and it was full of the usual awards glamour and performances from the wonderful 1D, 5SOS and Katy Perry. But who won awards? Let’s find out, shall we?
Sia, 1000 Forms of Fear was the biggest winner of the night with four awards including ‘Album of the year’ and ‘Best video’ for ‘Chandelier’.
Of course, our favourites One Direction and 5 Seconds of Summer took home an award each two with team 1D winning ‘Best international artist’ and the 5SOS boys taking home ‘Song of the year’ for their single ‘She Looks So Perfect.’
Taylor is going from strength to strength this week, bursting onto ASOS’s magazine cover as a modern day supergirl – we’re guessing her super powers are something like being able to make the crazy-cat-lady look cute and turn heartbreaks into number one singles.
Not only was Taylor totally working the glittery metallic look, but she also spoke to ASOS about what it takes to be a supergirl, the list of tips totalling 16. Taylor’s advice included listening to your instincts, realising that making mistakes is a part of learning and avoiding fads that will be just a tad embarrassing in years to come.
Taylor says, “I play the tape of my life forward and don’t wear the things that my kids or grandkids will make fun of me for wearing – [adopts sarcastic voice] “Wow, cool, mom, cool cowboy boots that you were wearing constantly in 2006!”’

The Arias took place last night in Sydney, Australia and our favourite Aussie band, 5SOS, had the opportunity to finally play an awards show in their home city- and boy did they rock it.
Having take the crown of ‘Song of the Year’ at the annual show, they performed the winning song, She Looks So Perfect, which made us feel very emotional with pride. Let’s watch.
It’s crazy to think they were four normal teenage kids about three years ago, isn’t it?
There are just some things in life we don’t tend to show our love for enough. Like double chocolate chip cookies, for example. But we’re not going to focus on them today. We’re going to focus on something so beautiful and underrated. You guessed it- Niall’s chest hair. Let’s begin, shall we?
CANCEL EVERYTHING. Christmas has officially peaked and it’s not even December yet. Our stocking filler list is already pretty long at this stage (note to selves: buy longer stocking) but the news of a Crimbo album by The Vamps is JUST. TOO. MUCH.

You wouldn’t think One Direction had many records left to break at this stage in their glittering career, but it seems the boys have notched up yet another entry into the record books for their latest pop opus.
The lads have just made history AGAIN as their new album ‘Four’ stormed the Billboard 200 chart in the US making it their FOURTH consecutive number 1 album. This means that they are the only band in the history of the album chart to take their first four albums debut at the top spot. Wowzers. With Christmas bells on.
Let’s hope album number 5 goes the same way this time next year… *crosses fingers*
