Messages about sensitive subjects are infinitely more powerful when they come directly from people - this is the key to Zoella's success and why she fits so well with our approach. The voices of people with experience of mental problems, are at the core of everything Mind does.
I have cerebral palsy but I've never let it hold me back. Growing up, I was bullied but I quickly learnt not to back down... A bruise will heal, a cut will heal, but when you let someone take away who you are, it's more damaging than any broken bone and deeper than any cut. By standing up for myself, people no longer just saw my disability. It shouldn't define you. I just happen to have CP.
Next door from me is a blue plaque remembering the tenancy of one Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Soho's enduring attraction as a global destination has always depended on building around and adding to what has gone before. Not by removing it. Not by demolishing it.
Whatever the reason, sexism - whether it is casual sexism or otherwise - is unacceptable and has to be eradicated. We need to be braver and call it when we see it, encourage discussion when we don't all agree, and ultimately continue to make the world a more hospitable place to be female.
I love visiting Paris...the food, the history, the arrogance, everything that tells me I'm a tourist. My sister is a hard core Francophile. She ran away to live the dream there, ended up fluent, and a professor at La Sorbonne.
I've been out of Chelsea for some time, but if you saw last night's episode you know that's all about to change. Whilst I've been away Alik and Louise's relationship has had a few, erm, hiccups.
It's that time of year again: excitement in the air, cheesy songs on the radio, an indescribable feeling of fun and joy in your heart.... yep, that's right, it's Britney's birthday week!
Feminism and body image have had a tricky relationship in the last few years that makes this difficult to argue. If a woman takes her clothes off is she anti-feminism or simply in love with her own body? If she is in love with her own body then does taking her clothes off mean she doesn't respect herself?
Jay has just completed a UK schools tour encouraging young people to follow their dreams. He's a great example of tenacity after having bad experiences with his past record labels Relentless and Virgin.
I've been to LA. I've been to New York. I've been to Miami, albeit briefly. I have been to San Francisco many, many times. If I were to visit an American pal for Thanksgiving this is what I would take. Though I doubt it'd stay frozen what with the long transatlantic flight.
Before my dad passed away, I had the chance to show him the film and explain that he was the biggest influence in the moulding of the older Mandela. I moulded how Mandela moved on my old man, they have very similar traits. Tree is the most personal song on this album for me. After spending three weeks in the studio, I knew it was time to write a song that addressed his passing. The perspective is like, "He's gone, man. I wish I could say this to him." And that's how the first lyric came; it was really sort of a love letter to him.
If you're one of those people that lack this disciplined morning routine and attempt to choose and iron your clothes, eat your breakfast, interact on social media, get the kids ready, pack your lunch, shower, reply to international emails, fuel the car and still remain calm then the chances are that the following tips will massively change your life for the better.
But what song? Something poignant, like a Johnny Cash ballad? Joni Mitchell? The articulate lyrics of Sting? No, sod that! I chose the Kylie Classic I Should Be So Lucky.
As the winners of the 2014 Impact Award are announced, it is a good day to honour the work of documentary filmmakers everywhere. In particular, their role in documenting, highlighting and explaining human rights abuses and human rights protests even in places that western journalists cannot reach.
Adele was brought up by a single mum who struggled for money but provided her daughter with a stable and loving home. That Adele is now wanting to do the same should be supported and applauded, not attacked as a sign of selfishness. It is the egotistical rock star who wants to play God that is selfish.
So after revisiting Fatima I gave the other Elgo Records musicians a listen while browsing artwork by the visual artists signed to the label. Let me show you what I found.
