5SOS' Michael Clifford Partying In London Just A Day After Burn Injury During Gig


5 Seconds of Summer

Michael Clifford, one of the members of the teen-rock sensation 5 Seconds of Summer, has seemingly made a quick recovery from the nasty injury he looked to have sustained during a London gig on Saturday night.

5SOS were playing a huge concert at Wembley Arena in North London on Saturday (June 13th), when the guitarist stepped too close to a pyrotechnics device when it launched a vertical-flame into the air during an encore. Clifford was seen clutching his face and hair, which had been set alight according to horrified onlookers. The gig was halted and cancelled shortly afterwards.

Apart from winning three accolades - for Artist of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Lyrics - Taylor Swift was winning in many other ways. She's been gushing to everyone who'll listen recently  about Queen of Pop Madonna apparently praising her music in an interview, but the 'Blank Space' singer landed the chance to perform with her idol as she and her guitar joined the diva on stage for a rendition of Madonna's new single 'Ghosttown', taken from recently released thirteenth album 'Rebel Heart'.

The line-up for MTV's VMAs has been announced, and now it's time to take bets as to whether this year will serve as any less controversial than last year, following the infamous 'Miley-gate' incident.

Last year's MTV Video Music Awards sparked off some controversy due to Miley Cyrus' 'seductive' twerking on the then married Robin Thicke while wearing only her underwear and making provocative gestures with a giant foam finger. Then again, controversy is big money these days so if anything, the draw of this year's VMAs is seeing if they will top last year's antics.

5 Seconds Of Summer Are A Boy Band, But It's Not Because Of Their Music


5 Seconds of Summer All Time Low One Direction

Auto-tuned vocals, dashing good looks, and a bunch of outside writers and producers making the songs. Those are probably the most common qualities that you'll find in your standard boy band. But what about the so-called boy bands that transcend these stereotypes - the "boy bands" that are far from what's considered manufactured? Will they ever stand a chance, or is it too easy to give in to the mainstream pressure?

5SOS Promo5 Seconds of Summer have been living up to their ‘Next Big Thing’ title

In general, there's the automatic assumption that a boy band equals bad music, but what exactly equals a boy band? You could say that pop music is the instant boy band qualifier, and the poppier the music is, the more it'll be discredited. But when you look at a band like Fall Out Boy - one of the poppiest and biggest pop rock bands in the world - why are they considered a "real band" when they aren't all that different from an act like 5 Seconds of Summer? Obviously, there's a ton of differences between the two groups, but the point is that they both started out as just some guys looking to play music together. The type of music isn't what makes a band a boy band, but rather, it's the marketing behind them.
