Taylor Swift Greg James

Post Blank Space, Taylor Swift is basically the queen of the world – and out hearts. But she’s not resting. Have you read about that time Taylor took time out of her day to send an awesome care package to a distraught fan? Or the fact that she gives advice to her younger followers via her Tumblr and Twitter? Or the fact that she’s best with like every cool lady in the business? Or the fact that she can stand. Up. On. A. Freaking. HORSE?

Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift is a gift from the universe and I will not be convinced otherwise.

So Tay’s latest achievement is a lip sync video with Radio 1 DJ Greg James. The pair are riding around in a car, blasting Blank Space (as it is meant to be listened to) and just being the adorable free spirits that their PR teams have decided they should be.

Can 'Candy' Take The Crown? Robbie Williams Headed For Number One

Robbie Williams Gary Barlow Rylan Clark Greg James Labrinth Fun

Robbie Williams last scored a number one single in 2004 but the former Take That star looks as though he’s heading for the top of the charts this weekend 'with his latest single ‘Candy,’ according to It’s the first single to be taken from his forthcoming album Take The Crown and has sold 73,000 copies so far, since its release.

Sales will have been buoyed by his appearance on last week’s X Factor show, during which he joked with his Take That pal Gary Barlow about his support for the controversial contestant on the show, Rylan Clark. When he was asked by Radio One’s Greg James (who presents the station’s weekly official chart show) what he would do if he got the number one slot this Sunday (November 4, 2012), he replied that he would “stay in, look for UFOs, get fat and beardy again.” Robbie’s last number one single was ‘Radio,’ which coincided with the release of his Greatest Hits album in 2004. His ninth studio album, Take The Crown, will be released on November 5, 2012.

Last week, Labrinth and Emeli Sande’s duet ‘Our Version Of Events’ also hit the top spot, after they had performed live on X Factor, though they have slipped to third place, in the midweek charts analysis. The X Factor effect shouldn’t be underestimated. Fun have just leapt 29 places with ‘We Are Young’, after they also appeared on the TV talent contest in the UK.

Is Nick Grimshaw’s Radio 1 show flagging already? No sooner had the 23-year-old taken over from Chris Moyles than he was booking pop star of the moment Harry Styles in for a two-hour joint DJ stint!

Yep, that’s right One Direction fans, Harry will be joining Grimshaw on Radio 1 next month, on October 6, 2012. To be fair to the new breakfast radio host, the show won’t actually form part of his 6.30am-10.00am slot, instead making up a very special ‘One Direction’ day on the station. Things will kick off with Gemma Cairney, who will be joined by Liam Payne at 8am, before Styles teams up with Grimshaw and Scott Mills welcomes Zayn Malik at noon. Huw Stephens will have Niall Horan for company at 2pm before Greg James and Louis Tomlinson cap things off at 4pm. The boys will be creating their own features for their shows and possibly picking some of their own tracks.

Their appearances will be in promotion of One Direction’s new single ‘Live While We’re Young’, as well as their headline performance at the Radio 1 Teen Awards at Wembley Arena.
