One Direction Release Music Video For 'Kiss You'

Ella
Ella Jan 07, 2013

One Direction have released a music video for their newest US single 'Kiss You' from their latest album 'Take Me Home'.

The video is completely tongue-in-cheek and just shows the boys having a great time in a ton of random locations whilst showing off some (questionable) dance moves!

It's definitely a contrast to their previous, more mellow, music video for 'Little Things' but there's nothing wrong with cheesing it up every now and again!

It's completely ridiculous and wonderful and awesome, those boys can do no wrong!

They've taken over the world, after all.

Check out the video here:

Lostprophets Front Man Ian Watkins Arrested For Child Sex Offences

Ella
Ella Dec 19, 2012



Ian Watkins, lead singer of the welsh rock band Lostprophets, has been arrested.

He has been charged with conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a female under 13 as well as the possession/distribution of child pornography. South Wales Police named the man as Ian to help with their investigation.

The 35 year-old appeared at Cardiff Magistrates Court this morning, along with two women who have been charged with similar offences, where it was heard that he is alleged to have conspired with a woman to rape a one-year-old girl as well as engaging in sexual touching with two young children and making, possessing and distributing indecent images.

Senior investigating officer, Detective Inspector Peter Doyle, said: “Specially-trained staff are available to speak to anyone with concerns or information regarding this investigation and a dedicated telephone number has been set up. I want to encourage anyone who has any concerns or information which they think may be relevant to contact us. Safeguarding children involved in such cases is always a high priority and as such measures have already been taken.”

The NSPCC are also working alongside the police on this investigation.

This is such a shock. I adore Lostprophets and they have had an amazing year - a new album, a successful tour, headlining UK Warped Tour just last month as well as being crowned Best Rock Band at the Kerrang Awards in the summer.

I'm sure Ian Watkins has been a role model to many in the past, it's a shame he didn't use that position purely for great things.

But let's not forget: innocent until proven guilty.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Operation Globe incident room on 0800 056 0154; or NSPCC on 0800 389 5347; or email operationglobe@south-wales.pnn.police.uk.

Overseas callers are asked to phone 00 44 207 158 0011.


Cassadee Pope Is Crowned 'The Voice'!

Ella
Ella Dec 19, 2012

After three months of blind auditions, battle rounds, knockouts and amazing live performances, Cassadee Pope has been crowned the first female winner of NBC's 'The Voice'!

Alongside fellow contestants, Terry McDermott and Nicholas David it was a tense two hour final which generated the most votes cast in the show's history!

When she found out she'd won, Cassadee immediately thanked all those who had helped make this happen for her; "I don't know [what to say], I feel amazing. Thank you to everyone who voted for me. Thank you Blake, the producers, hair and makeup, Carson, the band, Christina, thank you so much!"

She also took to twitter to show her gratitude:

Formerly the lead singer of pop-punk band Hey Monday, Cassadee was nervous to try and make it alone, but finally felt like the risk had been validated. 

"I was nervous to step out on my own and this experience made me feel like I could do it," she said. All four of you [judges] have made me feel like I could do it. Thank you."

For the final, Cassadee sang a beautiful version of Faith Hill's 'Cry' before once again singing coach Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert's 'Over You', which was her most successful song on the show.

After several number one's on iTunes, Cassadee was definitely the favourite to win, and I'm so glad she has officially done it! She has also made her coach Blake Shelton a back-to-back winner who tweeted "We did it!! We did it! I love y'all!!!!"

Congratulations, Cassadee, you deserve it!

Are you pleased Cassadee has been named 'The Voice'?

There is a definite creepy vibe going on, but Tim and the boys work really well together!
