"That song, 'Apologize', was the biggest double-edged sword ever. We had a cake, but the icing was so immense, that it drowned the cake, and so we had to... we almost broke up, we couldn't be taken seriously any more, number one in 30 countries with our first record, and it didn't even sound like a band, it sounded like a remix. People will say boo hoo, but I wanted my life..."
A photo that spread like wildfire online shows a young girl, dressed in a baggy sweat shirt and jogging bottoms, dark circles under her eyes, baby sick on her shoulder and looking thoroughly glum.
Without sounding like a stalker fan, you've always been my queen of queens. I didn't think you could get any higher up my hierarchy of queenliness, but that was until yesterday when you opened up to the world about your fight with PND.
As a mum who went into Motherhood (wrongly) assuming that PND only happened to mothers who had a history of mental health problems, that it was something that happened to women who were not "strong' enough, that it meant they hated their children, I know firsthand how dangerous these misconceptions can be.
Tim Arnold, singer songwriter and founder of Save Soho Music venues: what exactly is the fuss all about? Well, almost 2 years ago, I launched a thi...

However, this year seems to be slightly different, with the entire line up feeling the wrath of music lovers via social media, whether they have tickets or not. Disappointing and underwhelming seem to be the biggest takeaway from all the tweets and posts.
I went in wanting her to win me over. She didn't win me over. She had me hook, line and f**king sinker. From the very first note. (This is coming from someone who couldn't even stomach sitting through a whole Adele single, let alone an album, just shut your whining was always the first thing that came to mind!)
Last week, I spoke to the Sunday Times Education Editor about a story she was planning on 'gender neutral parenting'. The phrase itself - which I thin...
Something needs to give. We need to harness the positive momentum of last months Oscars campaign to make the music industry rethink it's processes and to champion the best BME artists, and be truly representative of British music.
With technology connecting us in so many ways these days, it is often difficult to determine how much contact with an ex is appropriate. This quiz will tell you if you've gone too far. Answer the following questions as if I am your ex-boyfriend.
To be completely honest with you, 2015 hasn't been a vintage year for music has it? Sorry about that!
Emma Stone, Jennifer Lawrence and Adele (does anyone actually know her surname?) jump in the back of a taxi, the driver says 'Where to?'
Today Adele was confirmed at the top of the UK's Official Albums Chart (no surprise there) - but with a sales total which is breath-taking. In seven days, her third album 25 sold 800,307 copies. To reiterate, that is the highest total for any Number 1 album ever. That's ever.
I'm looking forward to working with Holly in the near future with the Raise Her Voice project to ensure we support the young women that need our help.
