    Av’s certainly made an impact

    She’s known for her pop-grunge sound.

    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.”

  • What 5FM will sound like without Gareth Cliff

    Gareth Cliff’s replacement has officially been named: and it's no big surprise.

    While 5FM hasn’t released their full 2014-2015 line-up, it’s obvious they need someone who appeals to both young people and the over-30s in the same way Gareth did. Who better to do that than 5FM’s afternoon drive show host, DJ Fresh?

    DJ Fresh

    From May, The Fresh Drive will take over 5FM mornings with the new, earlier timeslot of 5am-8am.

    But it’s not the Fresh Drive you’re used to. Fresh will still be there (obviously) and he'll be joined on the breakfast show by long-time executive producer Catherine Grenfell and Duran Collett (on sport), as well as newcomers Carmen Reddy (news) and Sol Phenduka (traffic).

    It looks like Poppy Nthsongwana will stay in the afternoon drive slot, although this hasn’t been confirmed yet.
    Filling Fresh’s ‘drive time’ slot will be the madcap Roger Goode with Sias du Plessis (who did sports on Gareth’s 5FM show).

    Roger’s old timeslot (weekdays 7pm-10pm) will be filled with former YFM

    Outkast's appearance this Friday at the Coachella Music & Arts Festival was perhaps the most hyped Coachella reunion show since the Pixies played the Southern California desert festival in 2004. But you wouldn't have known that from Friday's shockingly apathetic audience, composed of mostly unappreciative, casual fans who probably only wanted to hear "Hey Ya!"

    [Photos: Coachella 2014 Music & Arts Festival ]

    It should have been an exciting evening — this was the duo's first show in eight years (since 2006's "Idlewild" era), and it was a celebration of Outkast's 20 years in the business. And the night certainly started off strong with "B.O.B." It was a hits-packed set (other highlights included "Gasoline Dreams," "ATLiens," "Rosa Parks," "Aquemini," "GhettoMusick," "Roses," and "The Way You Move"); the chemistry and camaraderie between Andre 3000 and Big Boi was a thrill to behold; and their rapping was on point. But as the crowd's energy quickly, inexplicably faded, so did Outkast's,

  • (photo courtesy of Abrams Image)It was the decade of big hair, bad taste, Mr. T, and the Rubik's Cube. But there was way more to the '80s than that: It was the last golden age of pop music. Take it from Lori Majewski and Jonathan Bernstein, who wrote the book on it.

    For "Mad World: An Oral History of the New Wave Artists and Songs That Defined the 1980s" (Abrams Image; out April 15, 2014), they asked some of new wave's most iconic artists — Duran Duran, New Order, the Smiths, Tears for Fears, and many others — about their most seminal songs and found out all about the hits, the highs, the lows, the fights, the money, the makeup, and a whole lot more.

    They also discovered exactly why so many fans' love for this wild, weird, wonderful era is as strong as ever. Here are five good reasons they give for why you should love this decadent decade, too:

    1. The songs!

    Michael Fassbender has broken our hearts after apparently being spotted snogging Naomi Campbell.

    So not only are we not swapping spit him on a daily basis, he's instead doing the pants dance with a ruddy supermodel.

    According to The Sun (damn them, DAMN THEM TO HELL), the pair were spotted kissing at club Coya in Mayfair last week.

    A spy claimed to see the couple cordoned off in a 'VIP area' and were totally sucking face in front of the rest of the club.

    Apparently, Naomi had spent the earlier part of the evening at a separate fashion event, where she was overheard telling pals about her date later that evening.

    Michael was thought to be dating his 12 Years A Slave co-star, Lupita Nyong'o, although clearly not any more.

    More recent rumours suggest he's been spending plenty of time with model Madalina Diana Ghenea, we can't TAKE ANY MORE OF THIS.

    Nigella Lawson has reportedly been barred from the US due to her court confession that she took cocaine.

    The 54-year-old domestic goddess was turned away from a flight at Heathrow airport to LA on Sunday, leaving the future of her US based hit show ‘The Taste’ in jeopardy.

    An onlooker told The Daily Mail: “She didn’t seem to say much, but she did not look happy.

    “She could not get on the flight so she had to turn around and leave.”

  • Kim Kardashian Shares Revealing Make Up Selfie

    The reality star gave us all a glimpse of what she looks like before she's added 6 layers of slap

    We haven’t seen make-up this heavy since we ‘dragged up’ for our best mate’s hen do.

    Kim Kardashian shared some of her ‘unique’ make-up tips with her adoring fans on Instagram yesterday.

    We’ve often wondered how the reigning queen of the Kardashian clan achieved her flawless look, and have spent years guessing who she’s been getting her tips from - and judging from these snaps, 33-year-old Kim has been garnering inspiration from the Series Three box set of Ru Paul’s Drag Race.

    The Kanye West superfan and publicity shy reality star shared a pic of herself, midway through a process known as ‘contouring’ – a method employed chiefly by ‘female impersonators’ (usually with names like ‘Cara Van Park’ or ‘Countess Boozina Schadenfreude’) –  that is used to soften and slim down the face.

    Of course, she's shared similar pictures with us before...
