Super Bowl Bounce Gives Coldplay Seventh U.k. Number One Album


Coldplay Beyonce Knowles Bruno Mars

The group performed with Beyonce and Bruno Mars at the Super Bowl half-time show last Sunday (07Feb16) and now they've clinched their seventh chart-topper as A Head Full Of Dreams bounces back up the charts.

The album only made it to number two upon its December (15) release after coming up against Adele's 25, but it appears the buzz around the group's Super Bowl gig helped turn sales around.

Adele climbs back up the charts to two, while last week's number one, David Bowie collection Best Of Bowie, falls to three.

Donatella Versace: 'I Went Bold For Bruno's Super Bowl Look'


Donatella Versace Bruno Mars Super Bowl Beyonce Knowles Coldplay Chris Martin

The legendary designer was behind singer Bruno’s outfit when he took to the stage for the halftime show on Sunday (07Feb16). Donatella certainly achieved her goal, with Bruno rocking a leather shirt and trousers with thick gold chains and circular lens sunglasses.

“When you're making a look that will be seen by millions all over the world, you need a message that's bold and strong,” Donatella explained to The Hollywood Reporter. “As with many things in fashion, we had to work fast, but it was so much fun to create.”

Bruno was singing with Beyonce and Coldplay, with the trio of musical acts putting on a storming show. Bruno’s black and gold look matched perfectly with Beyonce’s, though rocker Chris Martin kept his vibe more laid back than high fashion.

Former New York Mayor Upset With Beyonce's Super Bowl Performance


Beyonce Knowles Coldplay Bruno Mars

The former New York Mayor was far from impressed by the R&B superstar's Formation slot during the big game, which critics have perceived as a salute to the Black Panther movement and a nod to America's police brutality issue.

"I think it was outrageous," Giuliani said on Fox News when asked what he thought about the Super Bowl's non-football highlight.

"The half-time show was ridiculous... I don't know what the heck it was. A bunch of people bouncing around and all strange things. It was terrible."

Beyonce Knowles Coldplay Bruno Mars Lady GaGa Super Bowl

A leather-clad Beyonce eclipsed even the multi-million selling clout of Coldplay at this year’s Super Bowl halftime show, as she and Bruno Mars joined the British rockers onstage in Santa Clara.

The 34 year old star briefly had the stage all to herself as she delivered a rendition of brand new single ‘Formation’, released just 24 hours before, with her backing dancers’ costumes seemingly heavily influenced by the armed rights group the Black Panthers, clad in black leather and berets.

The British rockers led the much-anticipated set at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, and kicked off the show with a medley of their hits including Viva La Vida and their latest single Adventure of a Lifetime, as teens from the Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles played alongside them.

The colourful performance then turned to Bruno Mars, the 2014 half-time headliner, who gave a lively rendition of his hit Uptown Funk with DJ Mark Ronson. He was followed by Beyonce, who took charge of the 2013 Super Bowl show, as she and an army of female dancers took to the football field to debut her new song Formation, which she unexpectedly released on Saturday (06Feb16).

Bruno and Beyonce then joined forces for a Crazy In Love/Uptown Funk/Formation mash-up as they met in the middle of the stage in a musical face-off.

Forget Adele V Tom Waits, Here's 13 Songs We've Definitely Heard Before


Adele Bruno Mars Oasis

Adele's new song 'Hello' has had the internet going crazy these past few weeks; people are excited for the release of her upcoming comeback album '25' and thus have this across-the-board number one on repeat. However, as with a lot of hit tracks, it hasn't been without its criticism and in this case people are commenting on the remarkable similarity to a Californian storyteller we all know and love.

AdeleAdele waves 'Hello' to Tom Waits with new single

The Tom Waits comparison has, in itself, been critized; but whatever people say, the fact can't be ignored that the lyrics to 'Hello' do bare remarkable parallels with Waits' 1973 song 'Martha'. Both dictate a phonecall to a long lost lover, reminiscing about their early days and reflecting on their young, foolish selves. It's not exactly a copy, merely a divine inspiration.
