Taylor Swift Is NOT Dating Calvin Harris. Here's Why.


Taylor Swift Calvin Harris Hozier Ed Sheeran

Despite recent reports that Taylor Swift had started dating British DJ Calvin Harris after becoming bosom buddies at the 2015 Brit Awards, the 'Shake It Off' singer is in fact single - and the pair are nothing more than platonic friends.

Ever since they were spotted getting 'cosy' at the awards show, media outlets went wild making huge assumptions that the pair were indeed embarking on a relationship. However, Swift has insisted in a recent interview that love isn't at the top of her to-do list and she certainly hasn't had a relationship in some time now. Plus, it seems Harris might indeed already be in a relationship; with model Aarika Wolf.

Imagine Dragons Enter Billboard Chart At The Top

Las Vegas rockers Imagine Dragons have landed straight in at the top spot on the Billboard 200 with their second album Smoke + Mirrors. The group, responsible for the enormous 2012 hit ‘Radioactive’, sold 195,000 units of their sophomore effort in the first week, compiled from physical, track and streaming equivalent sales according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The record is also currenly top of the charts in Britain, and is only new entry inside the Top Ten this week. Despite the impressive figures, Smoke + Mirrors has got a way to go before it tops the sales for their first album Night Visions, which to date has sold 2.5 million copies and has only left the Billboard 100 for two of its 129 weeks on sale. ‘Radioactive’, by itself, has sold in excess of nine million copies in the U.S. But that album only made as high as Number 2 during its run.

Taylor Swift's Headline Hitting Grammy Night: Cozy With Hozier, Avoiding Katy Perry And Posing With Kanye

Taylor Swift really didn't need to win any Grammy awards on Sunday evening to have an eventful night. Despite having three nominations and going home empty handed, Swift managed to steal nearly as many headlines as Kanye West on Grammy night, thanks to her always eventful personal life.

Taylor SwiftTaylor Swift had an eventful Grammy night.

Hitting the red carpet, Taylor’s first noteworthy moment came when she encountered Entertainment Tonight host Nancy O’Dell. After the camera’s panned to Swift’s dress O’Dell decided it would be appropriate to say to the signer, "I just wanted to show the legs, because as I was telling you ahead of time, I think you're going to walk home with more than just a trophy tonight. I think lots of men.”

Hozier - Hozier Album Review


Andrew Hozier-Byrne has undoubtedly had a phenomenal twelve months. Two EPs, one album, numerous festivals and live dates, TV soundtracking, an appearance on Letterman (among many others) and a world wide hit single, 'Take Me To Church'. With a year like that you'd struggle to argue against his decision to drop out of university at Trinity College Dublin to pursue his musical career.

Hozier - Hozier Album Review

After rearing himself on an unconventional musical diet (for a 7 year old boy), of Nina Simone and Tom Waits, Hozier has honed his skills via an eight piece teen blues band, the Trinity College Orchestra and more recently, Anuna, an Irish choral group. Being stuck out in the relative musical wilderness of Bray, County Wicklow during his formative years may have made it difficult for someone aching to find new music to discover but the refuge of his parents record collection has reaped its just rewards.

It appears just as importantly to Hozier's musical development has been his coming of age. By his own admission he is no longer writing songs filled with teen angst but from the perspective of one who has experienced his first true love, and probably more importantly from an artistic stand point, been scarred by its ending.

Sweetlife festival proved its worth with a fantastic day of quality music and incredible food at the weekend, with Foster The People and Fitz & The Tantrums among the clear highlights of the Maryland event.

We're tempted to jump on the pun bandwagon and talk about how 'sweet' Sweetlife festival was last weekend - but we'll try and avoid it. Though speaking of such, the food was an important feature of the whole day (May 10th 2014) with one memorable fact being Astro Doughnuts' batch of 2,000 of their famous sugary treat. Obviously, there were plenty of happy faces before the music even began.

Billed as 'a music and food festival', Sweetlife 2014 is set to offer the best of both with their single day event this weekend (May 10th 2014) at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland.

With the grand setting of masses of surrounding forestland, Sweetlife has developed into a much-loved annual party since its inception in 2010 when it was simply a small event held outside the Sweetgreen food destination in Dupont, Washington DC. And yet, it has maintained its solid ethics of green living and healthy eating, enforcing this with offers of local produce and green set-ups such as solar powered stages, composting waste disposal and recycling units. To make it even better, all proceeds from the event go to a very worthy charitable cause!
