Eighties pop star Rick Astley has replaced David Bowie on the cover of Morrissey's reissued The Last Of The International Playboys single.

Bowie asked Emi Uk bosses not to use a photograph of him with the former The Smiths frontman as the cover art, and even though the rocker has no legal rights to the snap, label executives agreed to reconsider.

Kylie Minogue And Jason Donovan Back Together At Last!


Kylie Minogue Jason Donovan Rick Astley

Yes! Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan are back together! Well, they were last night at least when the two 80's pop icons reunited on stage for the first time in 23 years at a concert in London.

The Australian pop stars took to the stage at last night's The Hit Factory Live - Christmas Cracker (Dec 21) at the O2 Arena in London to perform their 1988 smash hit 'Especially For You,' with the crowd erupting into great applause straight after. The show was put on to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Stock, Aitken, Waterman; the pop music powerhouses behind such acts as Rick Astley, Bananarama, Mel & Kim, Dead or Alive as well as the Australian twosome.

Having shot to fame in the Australian soap opera Neighbours, Minogue and Donovan followed up this recognition with two of the most recognised pop careers in the 80's and 90's, and for Kylie, the 2000's too. The Aussie twosome were joined by Rick Astley, Bananarama, Steps, 2 Unlimited, Sonia, Princess and Pepsi & Shirlie on the night, with all the acts taking to the stage to close the show with a rendition of Slade's 'Merry Xmas Everybody.'

Lana Del Rey counts Britney Spears as one of her biggest influences.

The 'Video Games' hitmaker's melancholy music and gangster-chic look share little in Common with Britney's pop background, but Lana says she stands beside Nirvana and Elvis Presley as one of the stars she looks up to most.

She told presenter Rick Astley on UK radio station Magic 105.4: "When it comes to Britney, I'm not really interested in a ton of female musicians but there is something about her that compelled me, the way she sings and just the way she looks."
