Niall’s charity football match sounds like our kinda footy game!

News just in at MP! HQ our favourite Irishman will be managing a team of celebrities in a charity match at the King Power Stadium in Leicester next month.

Niall announced via Twitter that Liam and Louis will be on his team along with the hunky Olly Murs. Phew! We can’t wait to see them running around in their short shorts.

All proceeds from Niall’s match will go to Irish Autism Action and UK Hearts and Minds Challenge. Can he get any nicer?! We don’t think so.

Tickets are on sale now, so grab ‘em quick before they run away.

Rixton are playing loads of gigs this summer. Hurrah!

Rising new band Rixton are already playing two sold out shows in London and Manchester but don’t start weeping that you didn’t get tickets yet because the boys are playing a slew of other dates across the UK this summer. Yay!

The quartet will be playing a string of festivals in June, starting with North East Live, East Coast Live and South West Live Festivals, where they’ll be sharing the bill with the likes of Jessie J, Rizzle Kicks, Katy B, Jason Derulo, The Saturdays and The Vamps. A pop-tastic line up if ever there was one.

It doesn’t stop there though. The guys also have performances lined up in Birmingham and London at Wireless Festival in July alongside Bruno Mars, Outkast, Ellie Goulding and John Newman. And in a double London hit they also play Hyde Park British Summer Time on July 6th supporting pop supergroup McBusted. Phew.

So what are you waiting for? You’ve no excuse to miss out on seeing the lads this time!


Katy Perry and Claire’s Accessories team up for exclusive new ‘PRISM’ collection!

Katy Perry and Claire’s Accessories are teaming up! The ‘Roar’ singer is joining forces with the popular fashion accessories chain to create the ‘Prism’ collection. The exclusive collection will include limited edition items, collectables and other products inspired by the lyrics and titles in Katy’s songs and will coincide with the start of Katy’s Prismatic World Tour in May 2014.

Speaking about the new line, Katy told fans;

“Claire’s will be the perfect destination for accessories inspired by my new album, PRISM. I specifically curated these collections to make sure you’re show-ready for my Prismatic World Tour, coming to a city near you.”

The collection is expected to launch in Claire’s stores worldwide and at Claires.com in May 2014 with the collaboration continuing through to 2016. Personally we kind of hope it includes some ‘Dark Horse’ inspired grills…

Wednesday’s Win Bin: Win VIP tickets to Digifest, the chance to hang out with Neon Jungle, a trip to Ibiza and more!

Wednesday’s Win Bin is a good’un! Hang out with our favourites Neon Jungle with tickets to a top secret gig, hotel accommodation and £250 spending money, just don’t buy their drinks for them all night, we know what they’re like. Sneaky.


Watch: Neon Jungle play innuendo bingo with Scott Mills on BBC Radio 1

MP! favourites Neon Jungle headed into Radio 1 this morning to have a natter with Scott Mills, who’s covering for Nick Grimshaw while he’s off tanning his quiff and resting his legs after a marathon bike ride.

Shereen and Asami stepped up to the tough challenge of innuendo bingo, which was filled with brilliant one liners this week including some odd chat about some kind of balls.


Watch: Check out a new clip from ‘The Fault In Our Stars’!

Shailene Woodley is currently dominating the box office with the hugely successful ‘Divergent’ and is fast becoming one of our fave new stars. The rising actress is now gearing up for the release of her next flick and decided to stop by the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday to introduce a clip from new movie ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ alongside co-star Ansel Elgort.

The potentially weepy romantic drama, based on the book of the same name by John Green, tells the story of cancer patient Hazel who meets and falls in love with fellow cancer survivor Augustus at a local support group. We’ve been dying to see this film for ages but we imagine a large quantity of tissues will be required when we do. *sniff*

‘The Fault In Our Stars’ is released in the UK on June 20th.


Watch: Ellie Goulding performs ‘Beating Heart’ at the MTV Movie Awards and turns us into a blubbering mess…

A whole host of star performers turned out for Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards including Rihanna and Eminem, but the performance of the night went to the amazing Ellie Goulding of course.

Ellie took to the stage to perform a stunning, piano-led rendition of current single ‘Beating Heart’, which also happens to be one of four, yes, FOUR songs by Ms. Goulding on the ‘Divergent’ soundtrack. After reducing the viewers to blubbering messes, the tender ballad then segued nicely into a banger of a performance by superstar DJ Zedd, who treated the audience to his own ‘Divergent’ contribution ‘Find You’ featuring Mathew Koma and Miriam Bryant. Perfect for a good ol’ cry on the dancefloor!

Watch: Ed Sheeran performs new track ‘Don’t’ on US TV!

We’ve only just gotten over the excitement of a new Ed Sheeran single and now he’s debuted ANOTHER brand new track from his forthcoming album ‘X’.

Ed performed his new song ‘Don’t’ on US comedy sketch show ‘Saturday Night Live’ and it’s yet another Justin Timberlake inspired, R&B number, this time with Mr. Sheeran delivering a perfect kiss-off to a girl that’s done him wrong.

Who knew the sensitive songsmith had it in him, eh?
