The two performed Simon's hit 'You're So Vain' for the packed out crowd, who lapped up ever second of the once in a lifetime occasion. During Saturday's (27 July) concert at the 55,000 capacity stadium, Swift introduced Simon towards the end of her set to perform the iconic track, one that has no doubt influenced Swift's own songwriting (if you haven't heard the song, it's about a break-up). Clearly excited to unleash her special guest to the unsuspecting audience, Swift told the crowd before the duet; "Before I bring out my special guest, I have this question that I always, always had, and I think of you you have probably had this question, too, and wondered what the answer is. Who is the song 'You're So Vain' by Carly Simon written about?"

A week in music videos... Kanye West has been doing a lot of promotion for his edgy, rock-infused track 'Black Skinhead' (or 'BLKKK SKKKN HEAD' as it's otherwise known'), the lead single from his US and UK number one album 'Yeezus', so his anger when the unfinished video directed by Nick Knight was leaked earlier in July was unsurprising. He described the unauthorised distribution as 'heartbreaking' and no wonder; a video as unique as this was definitely worthy of a grand entrance but, nonetheless, the spoiler has definitely not affected the viewing experience.Watch the video for BLKKK SKKKN HEAD here.

French house star Kavinsky has already become a hit in his home nation with his debut album 'OutRun', released earlier this year, reaching number 2 in the charts and he's certainly turning heads overseas too. Teaming up with Canadian producer The Weeknd on one of his newest singles, Kavinsky delivers a driving dance beat with 'Odd Look' - the single from his new EP of the same name. The track also features on his album as a collaboration with fellow electronic musician SebastiAn. Listen to Odd Look here.
