Sinead O’Connor converts to Islam

Sinead O’Connor is best known for her hit 90’s song Nothing Compares to You which is instantly recognisable even in today’s generation but what we probably don’t know about her, is the fact that she is somewhat of a chameleon when it comes to her faith and beliefs. Born an Irish Catholic, Sinead is nothing if not experimental. She controversially ripped up a photograph of the Pope back in 1992 on public US television and…

Is it too early to start listening to Christmas music?

There are 72 days left till Christmas which, once you think about it, is not much at all. This is the time to start contemplating gifts, cards, food, parties, a perfect time to start your pre-Christmas detox, there’s so much to think about. There’s also the small topic of music.

A Star Is Born-A musical breakthrough!

A Star Is Born-A musical breakthrough!

I went to see A Star Is Born on Saturday. It was indeed a very impressive film and no doubt I left the cinema with even more respect for Lady Gaga and a new found respect for Bradley Cooper who not only does an amazing job as a film director but his singing voice was such a wonderful surprise. The whole film focuses on the struggles of making it to the top. The struggles to…

A new Doctor Who theme tune!

A new Doctor Who theme tune!

Winter is here when Doctor Who starts on TV and oh boy what a change for the series! The first most recognisable change is the fact that the Doctor is now a woman (points for women empowerment!).

Fast forward 14 years, and the show is slowly losing its spark. So what exactly is the cause for such a momentous show’s decline? Perhaps it’s the sheer brutality of what they put the singers through or perhaps…

Lily Allen speaks about the state of music and politics at The Mercury Prize ceremony

Lily Allen is not only known for her musical talent but also for her outspoken mind (whether people prefer to hear her opinion or not). At this years’ mercury awards, she rather changed everyone’s expectations on her rather outgoing self and instead broke down in tears after losing out the Wolf Alice for the Best Album award. She later wrote on twitter to her fans claiming she was “robbed” of the award. “Someone call 999,”…

A recent investigation has left them in a bit of trouble after it was discovered they were using touts to make money by reselling tickets.
