A Week In News: ARTPOP Arrives, Thor Soars, Miley Cyrus Gets High & Sacha Baron Cohen Pulls A Shocking Stunt
In a jam-packed week in showbiz news, Lady Gaga's 'ARTPOP' was finally released, Eminem's MMLP2 became one of the year's biggest debuts and two former rival boybands united.
'ARTPOP' Drops: Lady GaGa released her fourth studio album, ARTPOP, on the 11th November after a rollercoaster few months ensuring her new record would hit the charts running. However, middling reviews and an anti-climactic release after months of leaked songs, incentives to buy and mini monster melt-downs means Mother Monster's new work may have misfired. But the elusive Gaga showed that through it all she had a sense of humour when she parodied her infamous meat dress on SNL. See how here.
Miley Cyrus' MTV EMAs Joint: Pop star Miley Cyrus continued her whirlwind of controversy during this week's MTV Europe Music Awards, held in Amsterdam. Miley performed her Bangerz hits 'We Can't Stop' and 'Wrecking Ball' in her characteristically skimpy outfits. See photos here. But it was when she puffed on a very suspicious roll-up during her 'Best Video' acceptance that made the internet buzz. Find out more here.
McFly + Busted = McBusted!: Yes indeed, for all fans of early millennial guitar pop boybands, this is one supergroup tour you do not want to miss. McFly and the now-disbanded Busted are teaming up to relive the good old days of 2004 in a new UK arena tour next year, minus Charlie Simpson. Say what?! Tickets are on sale now.
Kills An Old Lady: We're still not totally convinced that this didn't happen. During last weekend's Britannia Awards, Sacha Baron Cohen was honoured for his contribution to comedy by Salma Hayek and an actress introduced as Grace Collington, a supposed former child star who worked with Charlie Chaplin. The elderly, wheelchair-bound lady offered Sacha a cane and the actor began to dance but slipped, pushing Grace off the stage before she was carried out of the room motionless.
