It’s time to start figuring out what in the hell to get my friends for Christmas. Suddenly I don’t know anyone.
Iggy Azalea claims not to have a sex tape, but Anonymous are saying otherwise...
It seems no-one is safe anymore as Iggy Azalea becomes the latest female celebrity to face threats regarding an alleged sex tape, after she retaliated online to comments made about her by music rival Azealia Banks.
Iggy Azalea under fire yet again
A Twitter account belonging to someone claiming to be a part of anonymous has suggested that they have a sex tape featuring Iggy Azalea in their possession and threatened to unveil images from it upon the world if she did not apologise for making comments about Azealia Banks. The feud between the two artists - which already existed before this situation took place - was made worse when Banks told Hot 97 in an interview that Azalea was essentially misappropriating black culture.
Nelly offered some sound advice to Iggy Azalea whilst being interviewed by the Australian press. Despite the attacks on Azalea from other members of the music industry, including Eminem and Azalea Banks, Nelly believes Azalea should not be discouraged as she's evidently influential enough to be discussed but that she should simply ignore their cruel comments.
Nelly has some good advice for Iggy Azalea and for pretty much anyone else who has been the focus of unpleasant insults and cruel pranks - ignore the haters but appreciate the fact you are influential enough to be discussed.
Nelly has offered some advice to Azalea whilst visiting Australia.

Iggy Azalea might be no lady, but she has never been a man.
So, like, Iggy Azalea and her haters are pretty much like PB&J, right? Unfortunately for Iggy Iggs, her audience is about a 50/50 split between actual fans and those who just love to rag. Fortunately for her though, she gives no s****.
Iggy Azalea had no time for the hate at this year's Jingle Ball.
The Australian-born singer jokingly addressed the stupid rumours on Twitter, posting: "I'm more of a Liam, if had a penis. Liam Azalea."
Iggy Azalea showed that she has a good sense of humour when it comes to absurd internet gossip, and she wasted no time in addressing the most recent silly rumour that claims she was born a man named Cody.
Azalea took to Twitter to address rumours that claim she was born a man named Cody
On Friday morning (Dec 12th), the Australian-born star took to Twitter to address to set the record straight on her gender at birth, that is if anyone actually believed this unbelievable rumour.

The lyric was a pretty low blow, but Iggy didn't take it lying down.
It’s kind of a given in showbiz that fading celebs will do pretty much anything to inspire shock, awe and the occasional dollar flying their way. Enter Eminem and his recent string of rather violent, offensively unfunny lyrics directed at his fellow musicians of the female variety. After Lana Del Rey, Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea was the latest to come under fire, with Shady’s latest leaked track, Vegas, featuring the following disturbing lyrics (trigger warning applies): Put that shit away Iggy/ You don't wanna blow that rape whistle on me.
I know he has an album to promote, but was that really necessary?
J-Lo and Iggy might have too much booty for ABC to handle…
With American Music Awards just one day away we’re already getting pretty excited about what this year’s performers might have in store for us. But two artist who will take to the stage together on Sunday, Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Lopez, are getting a little bit more attention than most and yes it’s all because of the ‘Booty’.
J-Lo and Iggy will perform together at the AMA awards
The two singers will perform their provocative hit ‘Booty’ together on Sunday night, but it appears the idea of both J-Lo and Iggy’s impressive posteriors sharing the stage might be a little frightening for ABC executives.
Iggy Azalea has hit back at Eminem over his controversial lyrics.
Pop singer Iggy Azalea has called Eminem an "old man threatening young women for entertainment" after he asked her not to "blow that rape whistle" on his new song 'Vegas'. The singer, 24, called out Eminem on Twitter for the controversial lyrics, which feature on the rapper's upcoming compilation album Shady XV.
Iggy Azalea has responded angrily to Eminem's rape lyrics
"If I let you run alongside the Humvee. Unless you're Nicki [Minaj], grab you by the wrist, let's ski," Eminem raps.

There's ever more death-defying stunts to be had with this crack team of vehicular warriors, who reunited after a brief retirement when DSS agent Luke Hobbs enlisted them to help catch former soldier Owen Shaw and stop his rampage of terrorism. After he is spectacularly defeated, the team, led by Dominic Toretto, are faced with another potentially fatal situation as his brother Ian Shaw is dead-set on revenge. Somehow, the team find themselves parachuting from an aeroplane in their respective cars, hanging off the edge of cliffs and various other deadly exploits as Shaw and his men ruthlessly hunt them down. Danger and disaster might be what these guys live their lives by, but have the team finally met their match?

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how to pull off a Halloween costume.
If you ever doubted that Iggy Azalea is highly self-aware (and, I admit, a little bit awesome,) check out what she dressed up as for Halloween. If you haven’t googled it already, you have three guesses. Yep, she went as a White Chick. As in one of the White Chicks.

Jim Carrey's first guest host spot on 'SNL' since 2011 was a real winner.
Jim Carrey's third appearance on 'Saturday Night Live' at the weekend (October 25th 2014) proved to be another eye-wateringly hilarious episode - though we know we'll be stuck with an image of the actor in a nude unitard and blonde wig forever more.
Jim Carrey does 'Chandelier' rather well
Yes, Saturday's 'SNL' highlight was the Halloween themed office party sketch, which saw the 'Dumb and Dumber' star re-enact the video for Sia's Platinum hit 'Chandelier', alongside identically dressed cast member Kate Mckinnon as they attempted to battle it out for the right to wear the costume. The pair performed the energetic dance routine of 'Dance Moms' star Maddie Ziegler who starred in the video, and while it has to be said that it really is a remarkable rendition, Jim Carrey's customary absurd facial expressions made it a truly unmissable show - that and musical guest Iggy Azalea's unexpected cameo.

On last night's Halloween-themed SNL, things got a bit weird.
Iggy Azalea can now officially be crowned a pop queen, after her SNL debut last night. I-G-G-Y performed three songs – she kicked things off with the monster hit Fancy and later on, brought out Rita Ora for their girl power-themed collab, Black Widow. For Iggy fans, it was kind of a dream come, as Iggy rapped, sung and gyrated her way through the two breakout hits of Summer ’14 alongside her band of dancers, all decked out in hot pants and letterman jackets.

The Australian rapper's ex-boyfriend's "sham 'marriage' claim" has been quickly denied by her.
Iggy Azalea is allegedly meant to be getting a divorce even though she claims she has never been married, but according to the Australian rapper's ex-boyfriend Maurice William, a.k.a Hefe Wine, he is currently trying to end their common-law marriage.
Azalea denies ever being married
TMZ reported that Williams recently filed divorce papers in Texas after the pair "agreed to be married, holding themselves out as man and wife and began residing together in the State of Texas on or about September, 2008."

According to Diddy, J’Lo’s booty is more impressive than Kim Kardashian’s.
Jennifer Lopez and her famous 'booty'
After being shown the video for J’Lo’s latest single ‘Booty’ by Access Hollywood Diddy gushed, "Oh my God! Oh my God, I am so lucky to have that great woman in my history. She is one of the greatest I've ever seen.” The rapper then called Lopez’s famous posterior a “work of art”, saying “It's something that will go down in history.”

Iggy Azalea has issued a lawsuit against her ex-boyfriend.
It's not been a great week for rapper Iggy Azalea, who has made the headlines after Steve Hirsch, the classy guy who leaked Kim Kardashian's sex tape in 2007 has claimed to have access to similar footage featuring Azalea and an ex-boyfriend. Iggy has fiercely denied the claims, but is now suing that ex, Maurice Williams aka Heft Wine, for seperate reasons.
Azalea at the MTV Video Music Awards in August
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Azalea is suing her ex for releasing music from her early career without her consent. This news comes after Williams announced that he will release an EP by Azalea, entitled Inizio, on September 30th. Tracks from the EP first appeared on various music sites in July of this year, but were swiftly removed at the order of Azalea and her lawyers. In the lawsuit, Azalea claims the music was never finished and it has not been authorised for release by her.

The Australian rapper's legal team are threatening to sue Vivid Entertainment if they decide to use Iggy's name anywhere in the tape.
Since news broke that Vivid CEO Steve Hirsch has seen footage of an alleged sex tape involving Iggy Azalea and an ex-boyfriend, the rapper's representatives have adamantly denied she ever made an X-rated film, and they are now threatening the porn company with legal action.
Azalea completely denies a sex tape exists
They are apparently well within their rights to as well, according to TMZ, if Vivid decide to release the tape and use her stage name I-G-G-Y, they will be sued because this is trademarked and can only be used by her.
Vivid CEO Steve Hirsch, who claims to have allegedly seen an x-rated tape of the Australian rapper with an ex-boyfriend, is offering a multi-million dollar deal for the rights to the footage.
Iggy Azalea is the latest celebrity to be accused of making a sex tape after Vivid CEO Steve Hirsch, who was responsible for releasing Kim Kardashian's infamous X-rated tape, claims he has acquired footage of the Australian rapper performing sexual acts with an ex-boyfriend.
Azalea denies ever making a sex tape
"I believe there would be a huge demand for her sex tape," Hirsch said in a press release. "Iggy has proved that she's an amazing talent...We are conducting our due diligence and if we are satisfied with our review, we will definitely try to make a deal to distribute the tape."
Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora come together in the new single 'Black Widow', to bring us a song about a failed relationship that causes the titular black widow personality to come out and avenge said relationship. But is this pairing a match made in heaven, or will it go on to stain these artists' careers?
Australian rapper Iggy Azalea and British singer Rita Ora both adopt different accents (and vocal pitch, in Azalea's case) in their career, so it makes sense that these two 'acts' are combining for what amounts to little more than an imitation performance of soulless hip-hop and pop music. Incidentally, the accompanying music video is an upsettingly awkward rip-off of 'Kill Bill', even down to Michael Madson's unfortunate inclusion.
The hook is sung by Rita Ora and, thankfully, plays out as the most bearable part of the whole track. Her voice introduces real heart into the otherwise desolate wasteland of this single - supposedly where creativity went to die. However, despite her voice, the hook is totally forgettable. Written by Stargate (Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel Storleer Eriksen), Benjamin Levin, Katy Perry, Sarah Hudson and Azalea, the lyrics are repetitious and the beat sounds bleak and empty.

Ariana Grande is "happy" but will not discuss her rumoured relationship with Big Sean.

Iggy Azalea is the latest artist to suffer a mishap at a VMA-related performance
While the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) are clearly prestigious and a desirable addition to any artists’ award collection, it would seem that they are also more than a little hazardous - as Australian rapper Iggy Azalea found out on Friday (22 August) night. The Fancy hit-maker was performing a pre-MTV VMAs concert with Charlie XCX at the Avalon Theatre in Hollywood when she backed right off stage.
Ever the professional, Iggy Azalea didn't let a little stage slip stop her set
Fortunately, she appeared unharmed and, with the help of a security guard, she was put right back on top where she carried on with her set undeterred. Clearly in good spirits, despite her unscheduled fall, Azalea posted a video of her accident to her Instagram account with the hashtag #TheShowMustGoOn.

The Australian born star recalls how she transitioned from her birth name to what many fans know her as today.
Iggy Azalea is currently experiencing a meteoric rise in her career, and she is quickly becoming one of the most recognizable female stars in the music industry. But before experiencing all this fame, the Australian recording artist went by her birth name, Amethyst Amelia Kelly.
Iggy Azalea explained her stage name in the Vevo original series 'A.K.A'
Although the hip-hop star is preparing for her debut at this Sunday's (Aug 24th) 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, Azalea has managed to take some time to explain the origins of her catchy stage name in the new Vevo original series 'A.K.A.'

Ariana and Iggy are the first to reach the record, since Adele in 2012.
Everything is coming up Ariana Grande these days, including a record that hasn’t been topped since 2012. Ariana currently has three songs in the Billboard Top 10 - Break Free at No.4, Problem at No.7 and Jessie J and Nicki Minaj collaboration Bang Bang at No.10 (Ariana is credited as a lead artist on that, so it still counts).
Is Ariana Grande on the fast track to lasting success?
The previous record holder was Adele, with three of her songs in the Top Ten of the Billboard Hot 100 back in 2012. The songs in question were Set Fire To The Rain at No. 2, Rolling In The Deep, which landed at No. 5 and Someone Like You at No. 7 – the trifecta of songs, which make up every great breakup playlist.
Scroll for pictures of celebs taking the chilly challenge to raise awareness for AlS
It’s not just you and your friends getting nominated to take the ALS awareness ice bucket challenge; celebs from lists A-Z are getting involved, and we’ve got a bunch of pictures of them getting soaked for a good cause.
Justin Timberlake, Justin Bieber, Oprah Winfrey, Ryan Seacrest, Iggy Azalea, Cara Delevingne have all taken part, as well as Mark Zuckerberg, who facilitated the sharing of these phenomenon with a little creation he decided to call Facebook. And who did he decide to nominate? Bill Gates, who decided to use a piece of machinery to aid his ice bucket challenge.
Bieber’s actually done it twice now, and made sure he removed his top for the second attempt. “Alright, second ice bucket challenge,” he said. “Today I nominate my Beliebers all over the world. I know you guy's got an ice bucket somewhere.”

Music's newest sweetheart just can't stop producing brilliant tunes
At just 21-years-old, Ariana Grande is currently taking the music world by storm and doing so with style. Described as the ‘new Mariah Carey’ by some critics, this pint-sized popstar has cemented herself as music’s newest sweetheart through several popular tunes, a breakout artist award and an audience with The White House.

Well, it's not the most original of video concepts, but Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora make the most of it.
Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora have just released their video for Black Widow and it’s basically the weirdest thing you’ll watch this week – music video category. Iggy and Rita play a couple of cleavage-rocking fantasy assassins, who are apparently on a mission to kill Rita’s boyfriend and Iggy’s annoying customer at her diner job – that’s the same person, by the way.
If there's one thing Iggy knows how to do, it's rock a skin-tight outfit, like the one in the video.

Which singers have tried their hand at acting recently?
It seems if you can sing, you should be able to act with a whole host of super singers putting down their microphones and picking up a script instead. Justin Timberlake has made one of the most impressive transferences from stage to screen with exciting supporting roles in hits including The Social Network and the Coen brothers' Inside Llewyn Davis and taking the lead role opposite Mila Kunis in Friends With Benefits.
Beyoncé successfully combined both singing and acting in the musical drama, Dreamgirls, and also tried her hand at pure acting in everyone's favourite detective film, The Pink Panther and in American thriller, Obsessed.
Of course, there are some popstars that are unlikely to ever find themselves in Oscar contention, such as Justin Bieber following his role in two episodes of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation back in 2010, and Joss Stone's slightly more substantial TV role as Anne of Cleves in The Tudors. But which serious fan of The Spice Girls didn't love their whirlwind musical comedy Spice World? And who didn't enjoy Britney Spears' turn in the girls on tour comedy Crossroads?
It might sound crazy what I'm about to say...but Weird Al has just scored his first number one on the Billboard 200 with his new album "Mandatory Fun."
The album was released only one week ago and sold 103,000 copies to secure the top spot. 'Mandatory Fun' is Weird Al Yankovic's fourteenth studio album, so he will surely be happy his efforts have finally paid off. It is also the first comedy album to reach the top spot since Allan Sherman's 1963 release 'My Son, The Nut'. Previously the closest Al had come was a Number 2 with 1996 single 'Amish Paradise'.

Beyonce leads the nominations at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards.
The nominations have been announced for the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, and no one is surprised that Beyonce is a front runner with a staggering eight nominations for various videos from her fifth album, Beyoncé. Close behind with seven nods apiece are Eminem and newcomer Iggy Azalea. Beyonce has been nominated for an impression fifty VMAs in the past and has walked away with twelve, whilst Eminem also holds an impressive eleven "Moonman" trophies.
Beyonce's videos for tracks including 'Drunk In Love', 'Pretty Hurts' and 'Partition' are nominated
Her fifth album was released in a surprise move at the end of last year, with all tracks accompanied by music videos, so Beyonce will no doubt be thrilled that the risky move has paid off.

Iggy Azalea is set to perform at the Los Angeles based part of the Made in America Festival. She is joining the likes of Kayne West, Rita Ora, John Mayer and Kings of Leon who are also performing at the Philadelphia-Los Angeles festival produced by Jay-Z.
Iggy Azalea will be joining the likes of Kanye West, Rita Ora, Kings Of Leon and John Mayer at the Made in America Festival at the end of August. The festival, produced by Jay-Z, will celebrate its third anniversary in Philadelphia and the first time it has also been held in Los Angeles over the last weekend in August.
Iggy Azalea will appear at the Made in America Festival at the end of August.
Former Nickelodeon actress Ariana Grande has landed her very first number one alongside Iggy Azalea with her collaborative new tune 'Problem'. And not only that, she's even made history by becoming the first chart topper to also succeed in having the most streams in accordance to the reformed Official Singles Chart. It presents high hopes for her forthcoming second album 'My Everything' due out later this summer - but goodness knows why.
'Problem' opens with a quirky, celebratory trumpet and Iggy Azalea outlining her hip hop influence with her brief introduction. Ariana then breaks in with an impressively bland, generic pop verse, frequenting such unusually sung lines as 'baby' and 'I want you'. You have to hand it to her, her voice does reach some unbelievable heights throughout, but in a song so void of feeling and originality, it seems so wasted.
As the chorus approaches, you've got the attempt at sexiness with the whispered 'I got one less problem without ya' which just feels painfully cheesy. Iggy's entrance hardly feels like an improvement either, with her highly predictable spin on Jay-Z's '99 Problems': 'I got 99 problems but you won't be one' - seriously?! It's true Iggy can spit with epic speed, but she's hardly going to change hip hop.

Ariana Grande is the UK charts' first streaming champion.
As of this week, Ariana Grande can chalk up another achievement – her single Problem isthe first UK Number One in the Official Singles Chart based on sales as well as streaming data.
Ariana Grande's Problem is the first UK Number 1 that got there through streaming.
This is the very first week when streaming data was counted, with the idea of providing a more accurate picture of the actual popularity of a single. The streaming data is taken from services like Spotify, Napster, Deezer, O2 Tracks, Music Unlimited (Sony’s service) and Xbox music and added to the count, with 100 plays being equal to one physical or digital purchase.

Iggy Azalea is gracing August's cover of Cosmopolitan Australian but her perfect hour glass figure appears to have been slimmed down slightly. Is this a case of photoshopping? Cosmopolitan have denied it but who's to know?
Australian singer Iggy Azalea has been the focus of a photoshopping scandal after she appeared on the cover of Cosmopolitan Australia. The star certainly didn't need slimming down and boasts a pair of toned, well muscled legs which certainly seem slimmer in her recent shoot with the magazine.
Has Iggy Azalea been slimmed down for the cover of Cosmo?
Wearing a pastel coloured playsuit in blues, pink, white and gold the 24-year-old singer posed with her hands on her hips. The singer was accessorised with a pair of large gold earrings, gold bracelets and a number of gold rings. Azalea wore her air in a high pony tail for the shoot. Although she looked fabulous, there did seem to be a little of her missing.

Did Nicki make a snide remark about Iggy not writing her own songs?
Nicki Minaj and her relationship with fellow rapper Iggy Azalea are the subject of speculation today after it emerged that Nicki made some offhand, and rather pointed remarks at last night's BET Awards. The 'Superbass' singer picked up the Best Female Hip Hop award at the event but seemed to detonate a pretty heavy diss during her acceptance speech.
The self-aggrandising rap singer wanted to set a few things straight during her speech and sai "What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is, that when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it." Immediately, the room took Nicki's words as venom against Iggy Azalea, who is rumoured to use ghost writers.
As everyone laughed and looked shocked, Nicki immediately tried to retract what she said, "No, no, no shade. No, no, no shade." However, like it or not, the diss had been made.

Weird Al Yankovic is releasing a new album on July 15. What do we know about it so far, and which songs should it parody?
‘Weird Al’ Yankovic is back at it again, but it might just be for the last time in a long time. The master of pop parodies spent the past couple of days hyping up an announcement, and finally let the news out with a tweet him dressed in a Russian-style military outfit with text that says “July 15.” So, a new album is coming – his first since his 2011 release, Alpocalypse - but what in the world does the uniform have to do with anything? He’s ‘Weird Al’ for a reason though, so it won’t be long until everything (kind of) starts to make sense.
'Weird Al' will release his new album on July 15
As for his final album, it’s something that’s only been speculated, but the upcoming record is going to be the last of his current record contract. Yankovic addressed the rumors in a blog post last year, stating, “if you were led to believe that I’m planning on retiring anytime soon, I’m not (sorry, haters). I truly love what I do, and if I ever stop working, it won’t be of my own free will.” It doesn’t seem like he’s planning to call it quits anytime soon, but why should he anyway? On July 15, the album released will be his fifteenth of his career, so there’s really no point to stop now, right? Especially since there’s so many new songs to make fun of all the time!

So what makes this different from Trending Topics exactly?
In its latest bid to track current musical trends more accurately (and purely to stay relevant, if we’re being honest), Billboard has introduced two new musical charts, fueled entirely by social media buzz. The first one, cleverly titled Trending 140, ranks how heavily songs are shared on Twitter in the U.S., tracking acceleration over the past hour. The Emerging Artists chart is a weekly chart of the most-shared songs by “up-and-coming artists.”
Social media queen Iggy Azalea predictably topped the Trending 140 chart's first edition.
Billboard president John Amato explains that the two new charts represent the culmination of a long-standing effort to incorporate real time data into the charts.

Iggy Azalea, Charlie XCX and Ariana Grande were the emerging stars of last night's Billboard awards.
When future civilizations look back on 21st century pop culture - which they will, if Doctor Who has taught us anything – Iggy Azalea’s performamce at the Billboard Awards on Sunday will be regarded as a career defining move. It was the night Iggy officially went mainstream (in the “very popular and widely recongized” sense, not the way hipsters mean it). In keeping with the Clueless/high school theme she’s been rocking since Fancy came out, the Aussie rapper took the stage in a cheerleader outfit, along with a whole squad of actual cheerleaders and guest vocalist Charlie XCX. The sass was real.
The 23 year-old recording artist will not crowd surf at any of her shows due to fans attempting to stick their fingers in inappropriate places.
Iggy Azalea is one of hip-hop's most beautiful female stars, and of course with that comes a lot extra attention.
But all it takes some idiotic fans to ruin a good time for everyone else.
The Australian recording artist recently appeared on New York City's radio station Hot 97 and revealed that crowd surfing is something she will never do again due to audience members attempting to sexually assault her.

Just like Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX, we all still want to be in Clueless.
Rapper Iggy Azalea has done a pretty amazing job at recreating the movie ‘Clueless’ for her new video ‘Fancy’ featuring Charli XCX. Iggy has pretty much included all the film's most important scenes in her homage and its sent us straight back to the nineties, wanting to be Alicia Silverstone all over again. So what is it about a film that's nearly twenty years old which keeps us coming back?

After months of hard work, Selena was ready to show 'Stars Dance' to the world.
Singer Selena Gomez showed the world just how far away she'd travelled from being a Disney Channel princess by performing the inaugural concert of her 'Stars Dance' tour in Vancouver, Canada. However, the 21 year-old had revealed how nervous she was to be taking to the stage in front of thousands of fans and remember her lyrics as well as those complicated dance moves.
Selena Entertained Her Canadian Fans.
Speaking to MTV in the run up to the show, Gomez said "once the first two songs are out of my system, I feel a little bit better, and then I'm able to let loose." That's exactly what Selena did, coming out on stage to tonnes of screaming fans to perform a track from each of her albums, Bang Bang Bang and Round & Round. During the show, she played plenty of her own songs, such as the fan-favourite 'Love You Like A Love Song,' but also covered tracks from Rihanna, Iggy Azalea and Lorde.

BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend was just that - a BIG weekend! With a huge range of hit artists, the radio station left no genre uncovered over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend (May 24th - 26th 2013).
Day 1 saw performances from Dizzee Rascal as he promotes his upcoming fifth album due out later in the year; Rudimental, whose debut album 'Home' has had some remarkable reviews and a number one spot on the UK album chart; Rita Ora who is also working on a new album; and her platinum selling boyfriend Calvin Harris. Saturday brought in an equally impressive line-up with Ellie Goulding who is in the UK before she embarks on a lengthy US tour later in the summer; The Saturdays minus Rochelle Humes who is still recovering from the birth of her first baby Alaia-Mai; and Iggy Azalea whose debut album release is imminent. As for day 3, it certainly wasn't a day of rest as hitting the stage in Derry, Northern Ireland were alt-rock threesome Paramore, BRIT award nominated Jessie Ware and Grammy winning Bruno Mars who's set to kick off a major world tour in the summer spanning through 'til March 2014.
