Perrie Edwards Zayn Malik Little Mix One Direction

Revealing in an interview with the Mail on Sunday’s You magazine that she finds the social media app “good for dating”, the Little Mix singer posted three pictures of herself dressed as a pale Ice Queen for Halloween on Saturday night. Clearly, she’s been enjoying the single life a bit more lately, after the initial shock of the breakdown of her lengthy romance, as she says that she’s “single and ready to mingle”.

Now That's What I Call Pop! Album Review


In the words of N'Sync, 'what's the deal with this pop life and when is it gonna fade out?' Well, if this three-cd compilation is anything to go by, then the answer is: not anytime soon. Ironically, the clean-cut American quintet isn't actually among the 66 artists featured across this album.

Various Artists - Now That's What I Call Pop! Album Review

Kicking off with Little Mix's recent single Black Magic, the tracks here span almost a 10-year period, from present hits back to Take That's 2006 smash Rule The World. Pop as a genre arguably has been around for an awful lot longer than a decade, but perhaps the folks at Now! who put this together felt it was easier to focus on a specific time frame, or that the age of people they're expecting to purchase this record aren't old enough to remember anything prior to this period. Either way, this compilation demonstrates that there have been both a huge amount of both ridiculously catchy and ridiculously awful songs that have captured the public's attention in the past few years.

It's almost a prerequisite that Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars' Uptown Funk is included, and it certainly reminds you why the catchy hooks and memorable lyrics of pop songs help the genre dominate the music industry. Followed by Roar from Ms. Katy Perry, Sexy And I Know It by LMFAO, CeeLo Green's Forget You, Happy by Pharrell Williams and Lady Gaga telling us about her Bad Romance, there's certainly enough hits to get you smiling and singing along (however much you try to resist). There's also songs in this mix that are questionable as pop and could easily be classed in other genres - there's Lean On from Major Lazer x DJ Snake, a blend of dancehall/electronica; the dreamy indie synths of MGMT's Kids; and Rudimental ft. John Newman's drum and bass tones of Feel The Love to name a few. However, pop or not it's no bad thing these have been included, as they're all absolutely fantastic tracks.

Tom Jones To Headline An Eclectic Hyde Park Roster


Tom Jones Little Mix Black Sabbath British Summer Time Festival

Lily Allen Pipped To The No. 1 Spot By Martin Garrix' Debut


Lily Allen Ellie Goulding Eminem Rihanna Little Mix

Lily Allen couldn't secure her place at the top of the UK Singles Chart this week, as her cover of Keane's 'Somewhere Only We Know' was pipped to the podium by a school kid from The Netherlands. Garrix managed to secure the top spot ahead of Allen with his dancefloor anthem 'Animals,' beating Allen's holiday number to the top of the chart.

Allen's cover, which serves as the soundtrack for the much-applauded John Lewis Christmas advert, was unable to earn the singer her first number one since returning to music a few weeks ago. Still, the success of the single and the advert have gone on to spark renewed interest in the Keane original, which has returned to the chart at No. 29.

Garrix could have had the honour of being the youngest artist to reach No. 1 this year were it not for the infectious 'Royals' by 16-year-old Lorde reaching the top spot three week ago. Regardless, reaching the No. 1 spot overseas must be a pretty extraordinary feeling, especially when you're just 17! Speaking to OfficialCharts.com, the Dutch wunderkind said, “I didn't expect this success at all! I made Animals as a club record and seeing it chart so high worldwide and especially a Number 1 in the UK was really beyond my expectations. I will definitely celebrate this with my parents, friends and at school!"

Zayn Malik And Perrie Edwards Still Together? One Direction Star Spotted At Little Mix Gig


Zayn Malik Perrie Edwards One Direction Little Mix

One Direction’s Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards of Little Mix haven’t enjoyed the most comfortable of month’s in their relationship, what with all those cheating allegations going on and all; however, it appeared that they were trying to get through it after the alleged wantaway Malik was spotted at Little Mix’s show in Liverpool over the weekend, suggesting that the pair are attempting to reconcile.

Malik has come under fire from Little Mix fans after Australian stripper Courtney Webb took her story to The Sun after allegedly bedding the One Direction man, who has been seeing Edwards for over a year. Protesting that she didn’t know he was, Webb at the time said “I’m not a One Direction fan, I don’t follow what they are up to. So when it clicked that he had a girlfriend I got more and more angry. I definitely don’t think it’s the first time he’s done this. I feel sorry for Perrie — she doesn’t know this is going on. It’s wrong and has to stop.”

The Daily Mirror were the ones who spotted Malik at the show at the weekend, safely away from Little Mix fans on the balcony. Bizarrely he gave a wave; we’re pretty sure he was receiving some alternate hand gestures back, not least because Webb, in her interview, went on to say “He just said, ‘Let’s chill in my room’. We sat on his bed and before I could even say anything he started snogging my face off, kissing me passionately. It just snowballed from there. We fooled around then had sex. It was amazing.” Eek.

Despite neither Malik nor Edwards commenting on the photos and rumours that have gone along with them, they seem to be trying to make it work, as one happy-snapping 1D super-fan managed to get a photo of them holding hands, while walking in Cheshire. 

Seen with a steely look on his face and dressed in a black sweater with an adorable bunny print he matched his girlfriend of a year well, as she donned a leather jacket and dark grey sweater underneath.
