For a few dates (looky here) starting on the 19th September (!!!), the iconic, divine Miranda Sings is going to come and perform for us mere mortals. Literally stop your entire life right now because Christmas has come early, along with your birthday and the day you were followed on Twitter by Union J all at once.

Smell like a pop star with our favourite celeb pongs of 2014

Nothing really compares to the ego boost you get when you smell good. Catching your own scent as a breeze rolls by, or when your friend turns to you and says, “Hey, is that you? You smell amazing.” And you just shrug, and smile, and inwardly think, “I know I do.”

Let’s combine that elated feeling with your passion for your favourite stars, and this is the list for you. Check out these unreal perfumes from some of today’s biggest celebs.

The VMAs add a new category dedicated to lyric videos

MTV VMAs have added a new category for the awards show and this one is dedicated to lyric videos. Hooray!

5sos x

“Lyrics are as important to music fans as ever, and the evolution of lyric videos is evidence of that,”  said  Amy Doyle, MTV’s executive vice president of music and talent programming strategy. “As we started discussing new categories for this year’s show we immediately gravitated to celebrating the emerging art form of the lyric video.”

We love a good lyric video and the five nominated videos are pretty damn good. Katy Perry’s ‘Birthday’, Ariana Grande ft Iggy Azalea’s ‘Problem’, 5 Seconds of Summer’s ‘Don’t Stop’, Austin Mahone ft Pitbull’s ‘Mmm yeah’ and Demi Lovato’s ‘Really Don’t Care’ are the five competing entries in the new category. A tough choice, don’t you agree?

Who do you want to see taking the crown of best lyric video? You should tell us down in the comments, y’know.

Twerking ice creams, floating objects and a pizza swimsuit – Katy Perry’s ‘This Is How We Do’ video.

If you haven’t seen Katy Perry’s video for her new track ‘This Is How We Do’ fix that ASAP. For the first 10 seconds or so, you might say that it’s shaping up to be a relatively normal video, but you would be wrong – very, very wrong. Prepare to be captivated by the sheer ‘WTF’-ness of this thing.  And fall in love, just like we have.

Katy Perry goes 90’s gamer mode for ‘This Is How We Do’ lyric video

It’s fine to suck at Mariah Carey-oke but not OK to fudge up Katy Perry’s hot new single ‘This Is How We Do’.

I mean, c’mon y’all there’s no excuse, really. She’s even uploaded a retro cool lyric video to help you along.

The track nods along to a seriously wicked 90s hip hop beat, which totally explains why the video’s channeling some serious late 80s to early 90s video game graphics.

‘This Is How We Do’ is Katy’s fifth single from her UK #1 album Prism. Not trying to be like, ‘Duh!’ but the song is hands down one of the best and most obvious singles choices on there.

It’s a feel good ode to hanging out with your mates, doing fun stuff and not giving a damn about grown up stuff.

“Yo, shout out to all you kids buying bottle service with your rent money. Respect!”

Now grab your iPhone, open up Snapchat and film yourself singing along. It’s totally how Katy would do.

Night School Resistance: Pop playlist, which pop star would play your favourite characters?

This month we’ve been chatting about all things Night School, premiering the new book trailer, interviewing the author, dream casting the movie and loads more.

We’ve got our resident book worm to merge two things we love, books and pop! Which pop star do you think would play who in the ‘Night School’ series?



The first person who came to mind when we were thinking of a pop star to represent Allie was Katy Perry! They’re both feisty independent gals and here at MP! we love them both.

Carter West


This one was an easy one for us to cast, it had to be Austin Mahone. With his dark features he can also pull a moody look like Carter West. Pass me a napkin, I’m drooling oooof!



Brace yourselves for this, we think Michael Clifford from 5 Seconds of Summer is ideal for the part. He seems like an action packed, fun loving guy, also he can always change his hair colour as some girls thick Sylvain is blonde and others think his hair is dark. Hmmm no mention of green then?



For those of you who haven’t read the ‘Night School’ series, shame on you. Nathaniel is a bit of a bad boy, and we all know how much we like a bad boy. We’ve cast Louis Tomlinson from One Direction as our Nathaniel, another very good reason for us all to drool over him.

Rachel Patel


Rachel is a bit of a workaholic, always has her head in her books. We think Shereen from Neon Jungle would work well as this character, any other ideas MP!ers?



Zoe is like a little bird she’s nimble on her toes but as strong as an ox. We’re casting Ariana Grande for this role, she’s already proved she can act, she’s gorgeous and we think she fits the bill nicely.

What do you think? Who would you cast as the ‘Night School’ characters?
