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?
Huey Morgan has history in the tantrum field.
Huey Morgan gave us some premium, grade-A, television walkout YouTube material to enjoy while munching on our muesli this morning. The BBC6 Music DJ is a fairly regular guest on Never Mind The Buzzcocks though this time, something got on his nerves. Rizzle Kicks to be specific. They are irritating.
Huey Morgan [L] Smashed His Mug On The Desk
Tensions arose when it became evident that the Fun Lovin' Criminals singer and guitarist didn't want to complete the lyrics to his own band's songs in the 'Next Lines' round. Joint hosts Rizzle Kicks fired off a string of lyrics but Huey was in mood to play ball.

The Fun Lovin' Criminals frontman did 'a Preston.'
What is it about BBC comedy panel show Never Mind The Buzzcocks that gets all up in the grill of certain celebrity guests? Since 1996, the show has earned a reputation for childish humour and ribbing its celebs to the nth degree. Anyone without an ego of iron or the ability to laugh at themselves simply shouldn't agree to be a guest.
Huey Morgan Took Out His Rage On A Mug.
Yet once more we've seen a celebrity who couldn't handle the music show's immature quiz rounds and jokes. Huey Morgan, frontman of rock and hip hop band Fun Lovin' Criminals, was tipped over the edge during the latest aired Buzzcocks. Morgan, 45, has appeared as a panel member on the show several times before as well as even a guest host once: he should have known the score.
iTunes Festival 2013 is definitely one of the best yet - and we're only midway through!
One of London's most fabulous concert venues, The Roundhouse, is holding the biggest artists of the year between September 1st - 30th and it's only going to get better from here.
The festivities kicked off with Lady GaGa, who certainly garnered much 'Applause' with her electric set which saw her don little more than seashells in strategic places as she bellowed out a taster of her upcoming album 'Artpop'.
The pair own Wireless this year.
Wireless Festival, Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z – a match made in heaven as far as festival organizers, reporters, fans – all those involved really – are concerned. The pair are splitting up the headlining duties on the three nights of the festival between the two of them, with Justin having performed last night and bringing in Jay for an encore. Tonight it’ll be Hova who takes center stage, as Timberlake only comes on for a couple of tracks. On Sunday, they will share the main stage at the festival for an entire set.
Timberlake's performance was nothing short of spectacular.
American rockers Vampire Weekend and Kings of Leon have both been added to this year's free iTunes Festival, which will be held at London's Roundhouse venue throughout September.
It won't be solely a festival of rock though - artists from other genres have also been invited, giving everyone at this September's festival something to look forward to, such as Justin Timberlake, Jessie J, Jake Bugg, Rizzle Kicks, and classical composer Ludovico Einaudi.
Having being held since 2007, the annual iTunes festival is held over every night in September and this year will host over 60 acts at the Camden venue.
A simple chocolate covered peanut was almost the downfall of Liam Gallagher.
It would have been slightly ironic had a blue M&M nut killed off former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher. The Manchester-born singer, who's lived the rock n' roll lifestyle for over 20 years, admitted he thought his time was up after going into anaphylactic shock during a international tour last month. The singer has since been diagnosed with a nut allergy after suffering a reaction to his favourite sweets while performing abroad.
Speaking at the launch of The Red House restaurant in south-west London, Gallagher told The Sun: "I've done some stuff over the years but never, never did I think a f****** blue M&M would be the thing that could have killed me. I was in a hotel on holiday and got in about the mini bar..I was bored and hungry, so it's what you do, man. I've always liked M&Ms so I got into them. I had a blue one..My mouth started to swell up and I could feel it tightening my throat, man. I had to go to the docs and get it checked out straight away." Pretty scary stuff indeed.
Anyway, Liam now has to carry a syringe about with him in case of emergencies, "Proper Pete Doherty gear," he added. The singer was out drinking with brother-in-law Liam Howlett, Hurts' singer Theo Hutchcraft, The Libertines guitarist Carl Barat and rappers Rizzle Kicks. The whole gang ended up in The Box nightclub in Soho.
