The Britain’s Got Talent judge has given his blessing should baby Eric one day decide to pursue a career in singing, although admitted he would tell him if the ambition wasn't achievable: “If Eric wants to try out being a singer, I would be okay with that.

One Direction's Drug Scandal: Is Smoking Marijuana Considered Shocking Anymore?


One Direction Louis Tomlinson Zayn Malik Liam Payne Harry Styles Niall Horan Simon Cowell Miley Cyrus

Being caught with a joint is really nothing new in the world of pop, especially amongst those aggressively seeking a change of image that will subsequently add a semblance of ‘edge’ to their persona. For child stars especially, in attempts to free themselves from their enforced clean-cut youth and iconic childhood roles, to indulge in the smoking of marijuana is the go-to method of both distancing oneself from the past and declaring oneself as a fully independent adult.

One Direction
The group have come under fire from the tabloids for Zayn and Louis' actions.

The celebrity world abounds with examples of such exploits. Remember the media storm over Justin Bieber’s incident with a “suspicious cigarette” or Miley Cyrus’ bong exploits, which have now evolved into her free and consistent utilization of marijuana symbolism? The celebrity media loves a scandal more than a Republican loves his right to bear firearms, but whilst the current One Direction drug ‘scandal’ has rather predictably been plastered all over the tabloid’s front pages, the majority of the public greets it with a collective shrug of the shoulders. They are, after all, adolescents- the prime age for indulging in experimentation with illicit substances and activities. Most adults will have indulged in similar instances of experimentation with an array substances at a similar age to these patchy-bearded pop stars. In terms of the pop world, this particular act has been seen many times before; so many times, in fact, that the whole ‘rebellion’ phase is part and parcel of the child actor discourse. Some take it just a little too far, and the ensuing descent into drugs has unfortunately claimed the lives of many of Hollywood’s exploited youngsters.

Harry Hill And Simon Cowell's 'I Can't Sing!' Flops, Pulled After 2 Months

Cheryl Cole Simon Cowell Nicole Scherzinger

One-time The X Factor judge Cheryl Cole has been handed a hefty sum by producers of the show as compensation for her speedy dismissal from the series early in its first season.

Sinead O'Connor Says Feud With Miley Cyrus Is Over And Done With


Miley Cyrus Sinead Oconnor Simon Cowell

Miley Cyrus' apparent feud with Sinead O'connor seems to have blown over already, with the Irish singer declaring that her beef with the 'We Can't Stop' hit-maker has blown over already. O'Connor appeared on Friday night's (4 October) edition of RTE's The Late Late Show, where she discussed the short-lived feud with Cyrus, admitting that she never had any personal problems with the star, as the whole thing was to do with the current state of the music industry.

Sinead also used her appearance on air to show off her new facial tattoos

Rather than continue her conflict with Cyrus, the appearance on the Irish chat show was as much a stage to declare war on Simon Cowell as it was to initiate peace with Miley. Whilst admitting to be no role model herself, the 'Nothin Compares 2 U' singer did reveal why she told Cyrus to stop "prostituting" herself. She declared that the "money making end of music is taking over," admitting that when she was an emerging artist she was asked to grow out her hair and wear revealing outfits, which prompted her to shave off her own hair.
