It’s July ninth, that only means one thing… Happy ‘Last Kiss’ Day!

HAPPY ‘LAST KISS’ DAY EVERYBODY! It’s July 9th so we must must must celebrate ‘Last Kiss’. No, it’s not a year since we had our last kiss it’s been much longer than that, it’s the day that Queen of the World Taylor Swift references in her song ‘Last Kiss’, duh. God, where have you guys been for the past four years and nine months?



We love a good anniversary celebration here on Maximum Pop! and if we can celebrate a year since Harry Styles favourited some porn then we can sure as hell celebrate one of our fave Taylor Swift songs like… ever.

That July ninth, the beat of your heart. It jumps through your shirt, I can still feel your arms

Oh God, we’re crying already.

Rumoured to be about Taylor’s ex flame Joe Jonas, ‘Last Kiss’ has struck a chord with not only her fans, but a few celebrities, too. Let’s have a look shall we?



Well done celebs, you chose well!




We’re kind of wishing this One Direction/Ed Sheeran mash up becomes reality pls.

We love a good mash up and there really should be an app where you can download them all to listen to on your phone. If you love 1D and Ed Sheeran, then get ready to be blown away by this amazing mash up ‘Don’t Steal My Girl’.



Know of a good mash up? Don’t be mean, share it with us! @maximumpop

Ed Sheeran is ‘so relatable’ according to Harry Styles. Find out why in this interview with Beats 1.

It’s not that often you can compare your own life to a global pop stars, so when Ed Sheeran said that Harry Styles said he’s #relatable we were a bit stunned.

Turns out, Eddy boy has gone and bought himself his first car recently which was a mini. Harry thought that was “so relatable” to everyone else and told him

“[Harry] had a massive go at me he was like ‘we get it! You’re relatable. Get an Aston Martin!'”

Not EVERYONE likes flashy cars, Styles. Gahd, get off his back.

Ed Sheeran’s landed an acting role and we hope it’s what we think it is

We all love a bit of the Sheeranator, he is so cute, like a little brother you just want to cuddle and look after.

But now that tables are turning, Ed is treading in dark waters. Why and how do I hear you scream?

Not content with his usually musical musings he has decided to spread his gorgeous wings a little in to the crazy world of acting.

Speaking to The Sun Eddy said, I have an acting job coming out after July. I can’t say too much about it because the pilot just got picked up, which is good, but it’s a TV show.’

He didn’t give too much away however but we are promised some sort of medieval show.

Anyone picturing him in Game of Thrones?

We’ve found even more proof that ‘Little Things’ isn’t about Harry’s thingy…

That’s right. ‘Little Things’ definitely isn’t inspired by Harry’s little things.

Mostly because…

Ed Sheeran, our favourite ginger, was asked about his inspiration for ‘Little Things’ and what he said was, “[Harry] definitely hasn’t got a little thing, so no, I did not write ‘Little Things’ about [his] little thing.”

The more you know.
