  • Ella Henderson’s ‘Ghost’ Is Here And It’s Unsurprisingly Incredible

    Take note former X Factor runners-up, this is how it’s done

    It’s been nearly two years since her shock exit from the X Factor.


    But rather than quickly rushing out any material, Ella Henderson has been hard at work in the studio with her first offering ‘Ghost’ finally landing today.

    And we must say - it’s seriously good, nay, incredible.

    Ella co-wrote the song with Ryan Tedder, recording it on her 18th birthday at his house in Denver.
    Ella Henderson wrote the track with Ryan Tedder.
    With the writer of Leona Lewis’ ‘Bleeding Love’ and Beyonce’s ‘Halo’ on board, it’s no wonder Ella’s first track is a corker.

    The video, which was shot in New Orleans, sees Ella singing the track in a motel room before showing off some pretty impressive power walking while being followed by police cars.  

    Seriously, look at her go.

    But we’re not the only ones impressed with the track, with 'Ella Henderson' trending on Twitter following its unveiling.

    Ella’s former X Factor mentor Tulisa went on to tweet her congratulations, saying: “So proud of you babe! We always knew you were going to be a star.”

  • Lily Allen Channels Her Inner Avatar In Sheezus Video, Name Checks Rihanna & Beyonce

    And this time around, Lily Allen has channeled her inner Avatar's Na-Vi for her latest single, ‘Sheezus’.

    ANYWAY, back to the subject in hand.

    The 28-year-old star’s psychedelic music video is the title track from her upcoming third studio album, which she describes as an homage to Kanye’s West’s record Yeezus.


    The tongue and cheek lyrics has many a name check, including: “RiRi isn’t scared of Katy Perry's roaring, Queen B’s going back to the drawing,” and, “we’re all watching Gaga…dying for the art so really she’s a martyr.”

    However, before you suggest she’s taking a swipe at her fellow pop princesses, Lily recently explained to Rolling Stone that this was most certainly not the case.

    But Avril Lavinge has more than changed up her musical style on new single ‘Hello Kitty,’ with the accompanying music video dividing fans on the Twittersphere.

    The 29-year-old’s wholly insane video, shot on location in Tokyo, sees Avril singing in both English and Japanese, dressed in a cupcake skirt and leather bodice.

    Joined by a group of harajuku girls, Avril leads a group dance (yes, Avril now dances) before falling back to her faithful guitar.


    Fun Fact Time: The song was co-written by Avril and her husband, Nickelback lead man Chad Kroeger.

    While Avril was clearly very happy with the video, tweeting it to her 15.6 million followers yesterday, critics on Twitter were divided.

    One user wrote: “Avril Lavigne's "Hello Kitty" video is a nightmare. A nightmare!”

    While another wrote: “Not to be cynical or anything but I'm actually pretty sure that Hello Kitty by @AvrilLavigne is actually the OPPOSITE of music.”

    But now Minnie Driver has silenced those who cruelly critiqued her bikini body on the social networking site – by posting a very raunchy naked picture of herself.

    The 44-year-old actress shared a snap of a recent photshoot in Allure magazine in which she posed totally starkers alongside Kristen Bell.

    She captioned the picture: “If you want people to stop taking about how you look in a bikini, let them see you naked. It tends to shut them up:)”


    Good work Minnie, well done.

    Taylor Swift has shared a photo of herself embarking on an Easter Egg hunt like no other - on a mystery beach dressed in nothing but a tiny white bikini.

    Let’s hope she reached the eggs before they melted.

    The 24-year-old songstress uploaded the Instagram snap of herself from behind, walking along the sun kissed shores to her 40 million Twitter followers.

    She captioned the picture: “Looking for Easter eggs...”

    Taylor really does lead a very lovely life, doesn’t she?


    The busy singer is currently enjoying some much needed downtime following her ‘Red’ world tour which will kick off once again in May, starting in Shanghai.

    The ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ singer recently used her time off to surprise a super fan after receiving an invite to her wedding.

    While Taylor wasn’t able to make the big day, she did have enough room in her diary to turn up at Gena Camerleng’s bridal shower with a plethora of gifts in tow.

  • Justin Bieber’s Trousers Fall Down As He Goes Through Airport Security. Whoops!

    The perils of oversized clothing, eh?

    Justin Bieber has suffered an embarrassing snafu after his baggy trousers fell down during a routine airport security check.

    Someone buy the boy a belt, stat!

    The 20-year-old singer was asked to raise his arms at LAX airport with his entourage in tow on Saturday as he went through a TSA security check for a full body scan.

    Luckily, Justin had paired his oversized camo trousers with an oversized white t-shirt, saving himself from flashing his (probably) oversized boxers.

    But Helen Flanagan has admitted that she isn’t happy with her body – claiming that her ‘non existent’ bum gets her down.

    Don’t worry Helen – you’re still FHM’s reigning UK’s Sexiest Woman champ.

    Talking to OK! about her woes, Helen admitted that she is still aiming to be a size six, despite her natural shape being size 8.

    She explained: "My natural weight is a size 8 but to get to a 6 I have to work hard. I'm like any normal girl; I get really self-conscious.

    "Sometimes my weight drives me round the bend. I've got good boobs, but I do not like my bum whatsoever. I do squats, but it's non-existent."

    We’re sure if Helen puts her mind to it she can have a rump like Kim K in no time.

    Which would look something like this…

    Helen also admitted that like all of us, she has her vices.

    "I eat so much chocolate, especially if I'm hormonal. I like healthy food, but my downfalls are wine, chocolate and coffee,” she shockingly revealed.

    Could Kim make it on to Time's 100 2014 list? Copyright [Time/Instagram]
    Kim Kardashian is amongst the nominees for Time Magazine’s Most Influential People list – and is currently storming the votes.

    The 33-year-old reality star is joined by the likes of Meryl Streep, Matthew McConaughey and Anna Kendirck in the TV and Movies catergory – alongside her husband-to-be Kanye West.

    And we doubt Kanye West will be particularly happy to know that Kim is currently ahead of his total votes by a third.

    Ouch.

    The official TIME 100 will be decided by the editors of the magazine, but with the surge in popularity on the public vote it wouldn’t be too suprising if Kim sneaks her way in.

    The reality TV star’s army of fans have been helping out with pushing up the tally of tmuch needed votes – tweeting the link for support.

    Kim’s notoriety in the press has surged over the past year thanks to the birth of daughter North, her upcoming nuptials to Kanye, and her prestigious (if controversial) appearance on the cover of Vogue.

    So the news that Simon Cowell is planning on replacing current Xtra Factor hosts Caroline Flack and Matt Richardson with Rylan Clark and Laura Whitmore may not be so far fetched.

    According to The Daily Mirror, Laura and Rylan have both been screen tested for the roles while Caroline and Matt have been left in the dark over whether or not they will return.

    A source told the paper: “It’s a pretty stressful time, because Laura and Rylan have been screen tested but obviously, that makes it look like Caroline and Matt could be for the chop.
