Things I Have Learnt From Twitter Today….

Whenever I go on Twitter these days, it’s usually on my Blackberry when I’m stuck in traffic, or my mum is droning on about something I can’t be arsed listening to; oh the joys of living back at home. But today, during a rather quiet day in the office – Now I have a ‘proper’ job, I can’t just spend hours social networking – I decided to have a browse of the ‘Trending Topics.’

I’ve never been one to bother with Trending Topics, as they’re usually just some rubbish like #OMGIfIWereAnAnimalIWouldBe or something equally as moronic. “LOL.” But after exhausting my Timeline and STILL having 1 hour 29 minutes before home time, I thought I’d have a little nosy… and here’s what I have learnt. I’m actually quite impressed.

  • Percy Pig now has a brand of ice cream. Those delicious pink pig faces have been frozen, mixed with all sorts of other calorific ingredients and sold in Marks & Spencer.
  • Pete Doherty has gone to jail for possession of cocaine. Naughty
  • Gail Porter has been sectioned under the mental health act after cutting her chest and arms in her bathroom.
  • Waterstones bookstore chain has been sold for £53m. Great huh? But not when you take into account that that’s the selling price of one Fernando Torres. The world is MENTAL.
  • The Queen has made it to Cork without being assassinated by terrorists.
  • Skater Girl Avril Lavigne has released a video for her single ‘Smile’. Everyone seems to be going on about it… as I’m in the office, I don’t think blasting out some pop punk would go down very well, so I’ll have to find out the big news on that one when I go home, or I get to my sisters, who has one of these iPhones where you can ACTUALLY watch videos. I know, how amazing is that?

Finally, something is happening on the Worldwide TT with some bloke called Joaquín Sabina. All the gossip is in a foreign language though, and Google isn’t giving me anything… can anyone help? I’ll never sleep tonight otherwise.

Young Guns’ New Video Is Delicious

Young Guns Stiches 

Let’s face it, anything with Gustav Wood in it is going to go down well in an office full of females any day of the week… but Gustav showing off thos buff-ting arms and pointing those little eyes out of your screens… oh my.

We are of course talking about the video to Young Guns new single (and the best track on their album), Stitches.

Shot in glorious black and white (which always makes people look better) the boys  battle the four elements, a piano in flames, as well as a hawk named Fern in what is undoubtedly their most delicious video yet.

Don’t just take my word for it though, get yourself a cuppa and have a watch below. We think we’re in love…

What Did YOU Think To Katie Price on Let’s Dance…

I’ve got to be honest, when I heard Katie Price was going to be taking part in Let’s Dance For Comic Relief, I thought she was going to be rubbish, but I’ve got to say, I was pretty impressed.

Obviously having a dig at her current relationship status (dressing as a man dressed up as a woman *cough* Alex Reid *cough*) Katie kicked ass to Queen hit; “I Want To Break Free.”

She did so well in fact, that she goes through to the live final alongside gorgeous funnyman Russell Kane, and Twittered;  “I can’t believe having two left feet has actually paid off…not a bad result for my dancefloor debut,”

The Brit Awards : Arcade Fire… What?!

I’m a music journalist yes, and is it bad of me to say I’ve never really listened to Arcade Fire up until they were thrust on my telly last night? Im pretty glad about it too…

They might have won a shed load of awards, but I still don’t really ‘get it’. I mean, I don’t want to sound politically incorrect, but they didn’t seem ‘all there’ really did they?

Perhaps they’re just not used to standing on stage in front of thousands of people. Oh, they do that already? Okay, well maybe they’re not used to standing on stage in front of thousands of people AND getting awards. Either way, they annoyed me a bit, especially when one of the birds kept spinning around and shouting at Win Butler like she was off her head.

Their performance was okay, but still not enough to make me think they actually deserved the awards they won. But what do I know eh?

The Brit Awards : Were You Expecting Rihanna To Be Raunchier?

Rihanna’s stint at the Brits was alright wasn’t it? She got stuck in a massive fly screen for a bit, swanned about in a red dress, then obviously got fed up of being so ladylike and instead set the stage on fire and walked around in her underwear for a bit. Brilliant.

Don’t get me wrong, I think Rihanna is alright, but she’d been bleating on about how this performance was going to be her raunchiest ever, and aside from walking around dressed like she’d got lost on her way to the local brothel, I don’t really get what was raunchy about it.

I mean, she pulled some funny faces (which I think were supposed to be sexy) and did that crouching dance for a while, but other than that, nope, I still don’t think she has the same sex appeal as Katy Perry.

Poor thing, at least she tried though eh? that’s the main thing. And her boobs nearly came out of that pair of curtains she wore to collect her award.

The Brit Awards : How Amazing Was Adele?

I cry pretty much all the way through the Brit awards every year. I’m an emotional person okay? But Adele, well, she left me going through more Kleenex than when I don’t see my boyfriend for a fortnight (that’s him and the tissues, not me.)

It was stunning to see Adele just stood there with only a piano, simply belting out Someone Like You and leaving the audience in a stunned silence. It was simply magical.

I know she gets a bad rap for not being a waif like many of her music industry rivals, but she looked stunning in her glam black dress, and proved that you don’t need a million riot police and shields to prove why you’re worthy of being on the Brit stage.

Kudos to Adele. The highlight of the night.

Sorry Rihanna, But Katy Perry Does Latex Better…

Oh. My. Word. This is a bit much isn’t it? I remember when music videos were about boy chasing girl, girl falling in love with boy… that kind of thing, and now it’s as though Lady GaGa, Rihanna and Katy Perry are just trying to out-rude each other.

Lady GaGa got her muffin out for the cameras this morning, and now Rihanna has unveiled this rubbery delight of a video in response, but I just wonder, have these ladies gone too far with their videos now?

Rhi is seen swanning about in Latex (already done by Katy Perry love) and messing about with whips, bondage stuff and eating fruit in a sexually suggestive manner, and after a quick poll in the office, we’ve decided, we’re not fans.
