We already know that Foo Fighters are one of the headliners for Glastonbury Festival this year, but last night it was revealed that Kanye West will also be taking to the Pyramid Stage over the weekend.
This could either be a huge success or a gigantic fail.
It’s International Women’s Day, so it’s your chance to celebrate women everywhere, throughout history!
The theme this year is #MakeItHappen, and they’re also doing #PaintItPurple to show support, which is why I’ve painted my blog purple for today.
While women have come a long way in history (we can now vote and have basic human rights) there’s still a lot that needs to be done, and it’s nice to have a day to celebrate women, although there’s some “meninists” out there to make it all about them…
It was recently announced that Noel Gallagher will be touring next year, in support of his upcoming High Flying Birds album, titled Chasing Yesterday.
Tcikets for his London O2 gig start at £40 (if you want to sit next to Jesus while you watch Noel perform), are about £55 for standing tickets (that’s minus a booking fee) with a massive £70+ for a decent seat in the arena.
The new series of The Apprentice aired last night, with an extra load of candidates. Lord Sugar is now searching for his new business within a large group of 10 boys and 10 girls. And they are all annoying as hell.
However, one special candidate stood out straight away like a sore thumb – Sarah Dales.
Glastonbury tickets sold out within half an hour of them going on sale. I spent my morning battling with SeeTickets to try and secure a pair of tickets (one for my cousin) and now I want to burst into tears.
I spent 25 minutes shaking, refreshing two laptops and a phone, while memorising card numbers and registration details. I entered my card details (while shaking) only for the website to then crash, reload, and tell me the tickets were sold out.
Reading festival is my festival. It was the first festival I attended, for the day, in 2010. It was the first festival I camped at for the weekend in 2012. And since then, I’ve gone every year. I’ve done the camping thing, I’ve done the day thing, I’ve done the toilets, the food and the “where the ever loving HELL is my tent?!”
I love Reading. The acts are always incredible, I’ve made so many memories there, and the happiest moments of my entire life have been spent there. But I will not go back next year.
About a week or so ago in the Metro someone had written in to say that they thought Beyoncé isn’t a feminist purely because of the clothes she wears and that fact her last album spoke explicitly about sex. Now putting all my love for her aside, I’m going to counter that utterly ridiculous argument.
As many of you know, my best friend is a very awkward man named Tas. I’ve frequently spoken about how awkward he is and how I’m trying to find him a girlfriend. While all this was happening, we would frequently get asked how long we’d “been together,” as if we were a couple. For about six years we would just explain that no, we’re not together and we’re just best friends.
But it seemed that everyone “shipped” us, so much so that when we announced on Facebook that we’re in a relationship we were both bombarded with messages all saying “congratulations” and “finally!”
It’s no secret that I love music more than the average 20 year old Londoner. Where everyone has their hobbies on what they spent their hard earned money from (better known as student loans) mine pretty much revolves around music. Reading about it, listening to it, and going to see it.
I was lucky enough to go and see Eminem at his second Wembley gig. Regardless of what everyone has said about it being a flop and the sound was awful or whatever – I had a great time! The atmosphere more than made up for the crappy sound quality, which is one of the main reasons I love going to gigs so much.
Another “main reason” gigs are basically heaven for me is it allows me to see the person that wrote the lyrics I love so very much, and suddenly that person isn’t just a poster on a wall or the sound in my headphones – they are there. They are alive. They are standing in front of me and talking to me!
