Taylor Swift, One Direction, 5SOS: The 5 best Fan Projects of all time

We love seeing fans getting together and supporting their idols in creative ways and here’s a list to prove it. From One Direction flashmobs to Taylor Swift video edits, here’s our favourite times you lot blew our minds with Fan Projects.

One Direction
During the Where We Are tour, One Direction fans organised flashmobs around the world where they danced to the song ‘Midnight Memories’. These amazing moments were filmed by fans and uploaded to YouTube, including this one is Sydney which has had over 2 million views.

5 Seconds of Summer
5SOS organised a huge meetup for their fans around the world called Derp Con in 2014. The main Derp Con was in Los Angeles, where the band performed an intimate live show. At the same time, fans got together in the UK, Japan, Brazil and more, and joined in with the fun online.

Selena Gomez
When Selena Gomez came to London’s Hammersmith Apollo as part of her Stars Dance tour in 2013. Fans arranged a special treat for Selena to show how much they love her and appreciate the message of her hit single ‘Who Says’. While she performed the song, they held up signs reading “I’m just beautiful me” and other messages. They promoted the fan project online using sites like Tumblr.

Justin Bieber
When Justin Bieber visited Paris on his Believe tour, his French fans wanted to make sure he felt welcome, and they did it in a truly French way. They held up signs saying “Merci” which is “Thank you” in French. A huge number of people in the audience took part, creating a really special, memorable moment.

Taylor Swift
A Taylor Swift superfan put together an amazing video in 2013, when she decided to visit 13 cities to perform Taylor’s poptastic tunes and share them with people around Europe. After the video got lots of views on YouTube, Nadia finally managed to meet her idol a few months later at the Red tour in Berlin.

MP! Interviews: We talk with pencil ninja Rajacenna about her amazing artwork, Justin Bieber and her favourite person to draw!

We recently told you about the amazingly talented Rajacenna and her fantastic artwork. We caught up with the pencil ninja herself to get to know her a bit more.

Hi Rajacenna! So you’re basically a wizard when it comes to drawing! How did you first get into drawing as a hobby?

Thank you very much! When I was 16 years old I was on vacation in Italy and saw an artist drawing people in the streets, I was standing there for a while that night and I was very inspired to try it myself.

At what point did you and other people realise your skills were a talent?

I uploaded it on the internet and a lot of people and friends said to me that they were very amazed and that they first thought it were pictures. For me it were just simple drawings, so I was really surprised by their compliments… It inspired me to keep drawing and make more art!

What are your favourite things to draw?

I love creative and colorful art where you can express your feelings in, but I also enjoy a lot to draw famous celebrities and beautiful women. Continue reading MP! Interviews: We talk with pencil ninja Rajacenna about her amazing artwork, Justin Bieber and her favourite person to draw!

The popstars have spoken… which colour is the world’s most talked about dress? Taylor Swift, 5SOS and Ari have their say.

No, we’re not talking about Kate Middleton’s wedding dress, not even Lady’s Gaga’s Kermit attire, the most spoken about dress in the world is one that’s just been stumbled upon on Tumblr but people can’t seem to make out what colour it is.

Half of the world are seeing it in black and blue whilst the other half are arguing that it’s white and gold. But what do the popstars think?

Ariana’s made up a whole new option of her own claiming that the outfit is grey and blue and later tweeted that she sees “ugly”.
