How not to interview Cara Delevingne by Good Morning Sacramento…

In an interview as part of the promotional trail for the eagerly anticipated coming of age movie ‘Paper Towns‘, Cara appearing via video link on Good Morning Sacramento, endured what turned in to one of the most awkward interviews we have ever seen!

Here is the first tip, never EVER greet one of the most famous faces in the world right now by calling her Carla. Then not acknowledge that you have called Cara Delevingne by the wrong name.

Just as you thought the major ‘AWKS’ moment was bad enough it got worse, much worse. Thankfully though Cara dealt with it like an absolute champion with a range of facial expressions and witty responses that have us saying ‘We feel your pain girl!’ Continue reading How not to interview Cara Delevingne by Good Morning Sacramento…

Zayn Malik signs deal with Iggy Azalea’s manager. We are ready for that rap album.

Zayn Malik is rumoured to have signed a deal with Turn First Artists after leaving record label Syco Music and management team Modest! earlier this month.



The former One Direction star will now be managed by Sarah Stennett, who also manages the career of rap goddess Iggy “Iggy Iggs” Azalea.

So can we expect a full rap album from El Maliko? Maybe, if his cover of ‘No Type’ is anything to go by.

The management team also help the careers of Ellie Goulding and Rita Ora amongst others so we’re sure Zayn’s going to be a guaranteed star. He was always going to be, wasn’t he?

At least we can send him fanmail now.

WATCH: 1D destroy a Naughty Boy Piñata – we are saying absolutely nothing… lol

Oh, those pesky boybanders are a right riot, aren’t they? One Direction were in Kansas City last night when some cheeky fan had a pretty good idea to get noticed…

Some fans brought along a piñata, which sounds very innocent, until you see who’s face is slapped on the front. Ohai, Naughty Boy.


The boys picked up on this and, uh, well it definitely got battered about just like any piñata would do. But this one took a bit more of a brutal beating. Watch it all kick off below…

Well, we’re glad you got that out of your system, Louis. Seems like you’ve been itching to do that…

We had a natter with the masterminds behind the #Rea1Deal – world domination, Directioners?

 We recently told you about the #Rea1Deal and we think it’s an amazing project! So we caught up with the girls over at @1DFansMovement to find out a bit more about the project.
1d gif xo
Hi girls! So, could you explain to us in brief what the project is about? 
The project is all about promoting the boys and their music. To people outside the fandom, One Direction is just ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ cause that’s their breakout song. We wanted to show how much they have evolved musically that’s why we want to showcase the songs that the fans love but never got the chance to really flaunt it or show the world how beautiful music is and now far from that bubblegum pop majority of the people know.
We have a poll which allows you to choose 4 songs that were never a single and think that deserves recognition which can show other people the capabilities of the boys. After collecting those responses, we would pick the top 4 songs and promote them during the 1D month where we would be releasing fan made videos and do what this fandom is known for, take over the world and be heard as one. We would also promote the next single from the next album and the album itself.

Team Louis or Team Liam? We can’t decide, they both fight so beautifully.

Now come on boys, you know fighting is never a good thing …

Well unless you are covering each other in powerade on stage. Who doesn’t appreciate a moment of One Direction see through t-shirt time? If you do, then we aren’t sure you are human.

Wet One Direction is just another reason why OT4 are slaying at life. There are many ways you can thank us for this master piece in glorious powerade fighting but for now knowing how much you enjoyed it is enough for us. Plus we too appreciate this video and will be pre occupied watching it on repeat for a good hour or five.

Tweet your reaction selfies to @maximumpop please and thank you.

Louis Tomlinson is the real Prince Charming of charity

Between their shows in Baltimore, Maryland and Columbus, Ohio next month, One Direction have a ten day break. The boys could use this time to relax and destress from their whirlwind world tour, but Louis Tomlinson is choosing to spend it giving back instead.

Yesterday, Louis tweeted that he will be hosting a “Cinderella Ball” on August 10th for Believe in Magic, an organization that helps give terminally ill children once-in-a-lifetime experiences. One Direction has supported Believe in Magic almost as long as they’ve been a band, and along with the charities Eden Dora Trust and Bluebell Children’s Hospice, Louis has taken a special interest. With so many younger siblings, it’s no surprise that he gravitates towards children’s charities.

Originally invite-only, tickets to the Ball can now be purchased for £500 each, or £4500 for a table of 10. It will be held in Central London, and there’s a distinct possibility that Louis will be dressed up for the occasion.

Worth every penny!

“I sound like a crazy person!” We chat to Charli XCX’s songwriter Noonie Bao.

We had a chat with Noonie Bao, the songwriter behind hits by Charli XCX and Carly Rae Jepsen as she prepares to step into the limelight on her own to release her brand new single ‘I’m In Love’.

We’re loving your single ‘I’m In Love’ at the moment but for anybody that hasn’t heard it yet. How would you describe the track?

It’s a lot of playful melodies. It’s super happy but a bit sad in a way. I wanted to write a song that was a bit destructive, about destructive love. It’s a song about how you go crazy because you’re so in love with someone and you try to change their personality to fit into that person’s world so it sounds like a really happy song but I think the lyrics are kind of sad in a way.

Fancy a stunning duet from Shawn Mendes and Hailee Steinfield? Oh alright then, you have twisted our arm.

When Hailee Steinfeld isn’t busy being The Trinity in Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ music video and Shawn Mendes isn’t tied up breaking chart records, they make sweet music together.

If you don’t believe us, which quite frankly would be plain wrong not to, then you can check it out here.

Just a quick warning though, this acoustic version of ‘Stitches’ is stunning. It will make you fall in love with the two of them even more. Not that we knew that was at all possible.


Ed Sheeran to star in new American drama series ‘The Bastard Executioner’.

Can he get anymore talented? After releasing the biggest-selling album of last year and selling out three mammoth shows at Wembley Stadium, you’d think Ed Sheeran would want a bit of a break, wouldn’t you?

Don’t be silly. The flame-haired superstar has thrown himself into a brand new career move: acting.

After teasing that he will be appearing in “a few episodes” of a “really dark medieval TV show”, it has now been confirmed that the TV show in question is a new FX drama series named ‘The Bastard Executioner’. Teehee, it has a naughty word in the title.

Ed will play a character named Sir Cormac, an ambitious and deadly protégé of a high-ranking church elder.

It all sounds a but creepy really, doesn’t it?
