Ten noughties pop songs you tried to forget existed (but I still love them)

For someone purporting to be a music journalist, I actually have pretty shocking taste in music. Someone once said to me, ‘I like the way you like what you like’ which originally seemed like a complement – a high-five for being an individual and not following the flock – but the more I thought about it, the more I realised it was acknowledging that I was unashamed of my taste (or lack there of).

Review: McBusted Tourplay/Live at the O2

When I heard that 2/3 of Busted and McFly were forming supergroup McBusted, my inner fifteen year old did a little happy dance. Then she had a panic attack.

Our 5 New Year’s Resolutions

It’s 2013, Happy New Year!

My, what a year 2012 was. We survived the end of the world, we all attempted the Gangnam Style dance routine at least once and everyone and their mother started reading mucky books thanks to 50 Shades of Grey.
