Lorde And Jack Antonoff Both 'love' Pop Music


Lorde Jack Antonoff

Lorde and Jack Antonoff both ''love pop songs''.

The 33-year-old musician has joined forces with the brunette beauty on her 'Don't Take The Money' single, as well as other tracks on her recent album, and Antonoff - who is also known as AKA Bleachers - believes the pair get on well because they share a similar interest in music.

Speaking about the 20-year-old powerhouse in NME magazine, he said: ''Well, everybody differs because everybody has something they want to say and a different space they want to occupy.

Lorde's School Rock Band


Lorde

Lorde was in a rock band in school.

The 'Green Light' hitmaker has revealed she started her music career as part of a band called Extreme when she was 12-years-old but admits they didn't make it very far.

She told Radio X: ''I mean, because I started all of this when I was like 14,15 so I didn't have a lot of gig history before that. But I was in a band when I was like at school called Extreme. It was a rock band.

LordeLorde unveils new song 'Green Light'

Co-written and co-produced by Jack Antonoff, the song and much of the album was recorded at his home studio in Brooklyn. 'Green Light' is largely based on a relationship breakdown, but Lorde doesn't want people to think of it as a regular break-up song.

Taylor Swift's Party For Lorde Is Ultimate Squad Goals


Lorde Taylor Swift

Squad goals, indeed! Lorde received pretty much the best 20th birthday party ever when pal Taylor Swift decided to take it upon herself to organise it. In fact, we'd say this almost beats Kendall Jenner's 21st. Almost; I mean, we're still reeling from the fact a stranger gave Kendall a Rolls Royce.

LordeLorde turns 20 in style

The 'Team' singer turned 20 on Monday (November 7th 2016) and to celebrate, Taylor took her to Carbone (or ZZ's Clam Bar, reports are vague) in New York City to eat and party. Guests included the likes of Aziz Ansari, Lena Dunham, Tavi Gevinson, Jack Antonoff and Mae Whitman while celebrations included balloons, party hats, cake - the whole shebang.

David Bowie Lorde

David Bowie had plenty of opinions about modern pop music, not least that he had the deepest respect for 'Royals' hitmaker Lorde who performed a tribute to him at the 2016 Brit Awards; in fact, he thought she was 'the future' according to his longtime pianist Mike Garson.

David BowieDavid Bowie was a Lorde fan

The feminist singer has become somewhat of a role model for young women everywhere, though her powerful image and unique vocals haven't gone unnoticed from the older generation. During a live conversation with fans on his Periscope Q&A session, Mike Garson revealed that David Bowie was a huge fan of Lorde.

Adele dominated at this year’s Brit Awards, taking home four of the biggest awards of the night in addition to her show-stopping performance of new single ‘When We Were Young’ at the end of the evening.

The 27 year old Tottenham-born singer was named best British Female Solo Artist at the start of the ceremony, and her night only got better from that point onwards, as she also netted the Global Success Award, best British Single for ‘Hello’ and the evening’s most prestigious prize, best British Album for 25.

Adele’s acceptance speeches were among the viral moments of the evening, as she became increasingly lost for words as the evening went on. “To come back after so long away and be so warmly received means so much,” she said, “I got really lost for a while and I didn't know if I'd ever come back. For you all to be so kind to me is so nice.”

Taylor Swift kept calm despite being ‘stuck’, many feet above the floor, on a moveable prop. The 25-year-old ‘Bad Blood’ singer was performing on her 1989 tour in Washington D.C. on Monday (13th July) when a moveable platform she as standing on froze and she was left stranded in the air. The professional as always, Swift laughed the incident off and continued performing despite the unusual situation.

In a recent episode of the outrageous television series 'South Park', the creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone turned their sights on the 17-year-old New Zealand singer, Lorde. During a two-episode arc, it was revealed the Lorde was, in fact, 45-year-old geologist named Randy Marsh who also served as the father for the show's main character.

Lorde is the most recent of many celebrities to be parodied in 'South Park'. In the past, the show has included caricatures of Mel Gibson, James Cameron, Britney Spears and Michael Jackson taking on stupid and often offensive roles. One example is the episode 'Trapped in the Closet', in which Tom Cruise hides in a closet and refuses to leave for the entire episode.

Lily Allen Unleashes "Sheezus" Music Video, And A Wave Of Confusion On The World


Lily Allen Rihanna Katy Perry Lorde Beyonce Knowles

Lily Allen really wants you to know she’s over pop culture – or some parts of it anyway. In her new single and video, Sheezus, she name checks everyone from Lorde to Beyonce and even seems to be referencing Kanye West. Allen’s digs at her fellow pop stars are harmless enough – “RiRi isn’t scared of Katy Perry’s roaring, Queen B’s gone back to the drawing/ Lorde smells blood, yeah, she’s about to slay you...” and it goes on along those lines for a couple of choruses. The theme seems to be “battle of the divas”, where Allen declares “Second best will never cut it for the divas/Give me the crown, b****, I wanna be Sheezus” like some technicolor female version of Kendrick Lamar.

Lily Allen
Like so many before her, Lily Allen is "coming for the throne."

The song has a heavier bass line than we’re used to hearing from the typically poppy Allen, but the lyrics are pretty catchy. Thankfully it’s lighter on the AutoTune than her last few singles.

Taylor Swift is like the girl at high school who knows absolutely everybody, but you're not quite sure how.  She seems to move just as easily from friendship group to friendship group just as quickly as it takes for her to say, “Hey girlfriend!” But who does Taylor Swift count among her many celebrity BFFs?

Lorde Finally Meets Baseball Star Who Inspired Hit Track 'Royals'

Lorde burst onto the world's music scene last summer with her smash hit 'Royals.'

But when the New Zealand native was writing the No.1 track, she wasn't thinking about certain individuals' bloodlines like England's Prince William and Prince Harry's.

Lorde's inspiration came from retired baseball star George Brett, and on Tuesday (April 15th) she finally met the former Kansas City Royals third baseman at her Las Vegas concert.

Lorde: What You Need To Know About The 'Royals' Singer


Lorde Katy Perry Ellie Goulding

There’s been a ton of buzz around New Zealand singer and songwriter, Lorde, since her first EP The Love Club came out in November 2012. The first single off the EP, Royals, made it to number one in the pop charts in both New Zealand and the US, which means that the 17 year old pop star (yes, she’s just 17 years old which is something to think about for all of us out there who are much older and still don’t have any number one singles) can now proudly claim to be the first New Zealander ever to have topped the US charts.

But who is Lorde? The sultry star seemingly popped up out of nowhere and is now picking up awards and accolades left, right and centre, including last night winning the much coveted BRIT award for Best International Female before going on to then party the night away alongside fellow pop stars Katy Perry and Ellie Goulding.

As Predicted, Daft Punk, Macklemore And Lorde Win Big At The Grammys


Daft Punk Lorde Macklemore

In what has to have been the most lively Grammy Awards ceremony in years, Daft Punk predictably went home with the top honors. The perennially silent robots won both Album of the Year for their Random Access Memories and Song of the Year, for the Pharell Williams collaboration Get Lucky. Taking the stage to accept the first award, the ever theatrically minded Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter kept mum, while collaborator and two-time Grammy award winner Paul Williams spoke for them. Opting for the classic “start with a joke” advice, Williams said: “Back when I was drinking and using, I used to imagine things that weren’t there… and then I got sober and two robots called me and asked me to make an album.”

Daft Punk, Grammy Awards 2014
The robots looked sharp on the red carpet - as sharp as anyone can, while wearing a blacked out helmet, that is.

Williams also expressed the robots’ pleasure at witnessing 33 same sex couples get married onstage to the tune of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ Same Love earlier in the night: “All that love is fantastic.”

Grammys 2014 Predictions: Who Will Sweep The Major Awards?


Daft Punk Lorde Kendrick Lamar Macklemore Sara Bareilles Bruno Mars Kacey Musgraves

The Grammy Awards are known as the biggest night in music, the music industry equivalent to the Oscars. Unlike the Oscars, however, the Grammys are much more accepting of newcommers and in fact, the award show airing this Sunday will feature plenty of debutants, competing with seasoned artists. So with that in mind, it’s about time for everyone to place their bets. Let’s see who the favorites are to sweep this year’s Grammys.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Grammy Nominations Concert
With seven nominations, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are expected to sweep the awards this year.

Record of the Year is one of the biggest categories at the award show. Out of the five nominees, Daft Punk’s Get Lucky seems like a no-brainer, but Lorde’s Royals, the unpredictable success of 2013 could come in and sweep this up last minute.

Lorde - Royals Single Review


Lorde (real name Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O'Connor according to Wikipedia - wow!) has truly stunned me with her debut single 'Royals'. For someone so young (just 16-years-old) she shows a remarkable level of maturity in her music; I know that's an obvious cliché but I don't think it will ever cease to amaze people just how much musical dexterity youngsters seem to have these days.

Lorde - Royals Single Review

This song is taken from her Platinum-certified debut album 'Pure Heroine', which has shot straight to the top of the charts in her home nation New Zealand, and is lyrically very sincere. In the song, she talks about knowing your roots and not caring that you'll never be rolling in the millions with 'jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash' - she knows what she should be aiming for in life.

Lorde's vocals didn't strike a chord with me at first; it feels like ever since Amy Winehouse, God rest her, enchanted the world with her jazz/soul crooning, every female vocalist in the world suddenly has a low-pitched, husky voice with over-emphasised vibrato - Adele, Paloma Faith, Duffy - Lorde is just the latest in that category and, for me, it's getting pretty predicatable.

Rihanna Makes UK Chart History As Eminem Collaboration Storms To The No. 1 Spot


Rihanna Elvis Presley Beatles Lorde One Republic Fatboy Slim One Direction

Rihanna made chart history this weekend when her latest collaborative effort with rapper Eminem entered the chart at number one, meaning she's hit the top spot for seven years running, at some point or another. The feat has only ever been matched by The Beatles and Elvis Presley and has etched her into the history books alongside those two recording greats.

'The Monster' - her second number one collaboration with Eminem following their massively successful link up on 2010's 'Love the Way you Lie' - continues a run of form that began in 2007 with 'Umbrella' and it looks as though she could even break the eight year mark.

Rihanna has now had 8 number one singles over a period of 7 consecutive calendar years. But let's put that into perspective: alongside her fellow 'Club 7' record breakers, The Beatles had 17 number one singles in the same period, more than double that of Ri-Ri. She's got a long way to go.

Is Justin Timberlake The Biggest Pop Star On The Planet?


Justin Timberlake Drake Lorde

Justin Timberlake scored his second No.1 album of the year on Wednesday (October 9, 2012) when it was announced thatThe 20/20 Experience 2 of 2 sold 350,000 copies in its first week. The first instalment sold 968,000 copies, the biggest opening week sales of the year so far.

It's an incredible feat for the 32-year-old, who returned to music after a five-year hiatus during which he turned in some decent movie performances. The albums charting at No.1 is an achievement in itself, though the volume of sales proves both Timberlake's enduring popularity and the healthy nature of the record business. Second place Drake only managed to shift 148,000 copies, while Lorde's debut Pure Heroine moved 129,000. 

Earlier this year, Timberlake had returned with new single Suit & Tie, featuring rapper Jay-Z. It became a chart-topper and The 20/20 Experience was adored by both critics and fans.

Katy Perry Roars On Top Of The Billboard Hot 100, While Lorde And Eminem Slip In Quietly

Katy Perry’s pop anthem Roar is justifying its name and storming the Billboard chart. The motivational tune, which features lines like: I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire/Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me ROAR” really couldn’t have been anything less than a chart topper. Roar has finally dethroned Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines in the Billboard chart and that’s even before the official video for the single has come out, though Perry has already released a trailer. The song is Perry’s eighth number 1 on the Hot 100 list and it concludes Thicke’s record breaking 12-week reign.

Check out Perry's wild teaser for the Roar video below.
