Here, There and Everywhere

I've mentioned before that one of the joys of touring is getting to explore new places that you may ordinarily never visit otherwise. The flip-side is that you also get to return to the venues and cities that you know and love well. You look forward to the familiar territory, however briefly you are able to tread it as it makes life on the road seem, well, less on-the-road!

Celebrity Breastfeeding Selfies - I'm Over It

Kim Chambers | Posted 12.10.2014 | UK Entertainment

The recent trend of celebrity breastfeeding selfies bothers me. I fully support the intention behind these images, to raise awareness of breastfeeding's benefits and normalise breastfeeding in public... Many mums, despite heroic efforts, just cannot breastfeed their children... I felt ashamed I couldn't breastfeed.

Logged On - And Turned Off

I was fresh-faced, 16 and in the closet when I logged onto Grindr for the first time. If my girlfriends were to be believed, all the best-looking men are gay - so surely a world of gorgeous, tanned hunks with god-like torsos were only a click away? But what did I find?

Do We Make Our Own Reality?

Will Young | Posted 08.10.2014 | UK Entertainment
Will Young

In terms of the aesthetic portrayal of women to be something attainable, responsibility lays at the hands of labels and advertising agencies and fashion magazines. What is promoted as healthy and all encompassing and desirable is actually unobtainable. This isn't adhering to the human condition, this is exploiting and manipulating it for monetary gain. The only reality going on here is a lining of the coffers

At Secret Cinema (formerly Future Cinema) you watch a film, usually in an obscure location, whilst immersing yourself in the film's narrative. Back To The Future is staged on an ambitious scale in a brilliantly realised world: they've actually recreated Hill Valley - the town from the film.

Brian Cox and Me

Ruby Wax | Posted 06.10.2014 | UK Entertainment
Ruby Wax

I'm placed next to Brain Cox and something inside me wilts because I know I am sitting next to a superior being and he will soon find out I'm a two-celled worm... This is my trigger, if I'm near someone that smart, I tailspin into the interior pre-recorded CD made in childhood that goes something like this, "You're a total idiot and people will find out that you're an idiot."

DJ Monki

Today I joined Grimmy, Annie Mac, Pete Tong and MistaJam on The Radio 1 Breakfast Show to kick off the weekend... Ibiza is the world's most iconic dance music location and to be a part of Radio 1's infamous dance line-up on one of the biggest weekends on the island is crazy.

10 Alternative Rainy Day Films for Children

Leigh Clark | Posted 30.09.2014 | UK Entertainment
Leigh Clark

There has been a swift decrease in the quality of children's films over the years. It's something I have noticed both as a keen cinephile and as a concerned parent... With CGI claptrap, mindless sequels and remakes, the multiplex is packed with nonsense that calls itself children's cinema.

Red-Eyed Delights: Solo Flight of a Showgirl

Amy Gordon | Posted 29.09.2014 | UK Entertainment
Amy Gordon

Flying solo, in a commercial airplane of course, means one thing to me: handling a single point of failure... Tired, strung out on sleep aids, carrying everything I own of current use and value in 3 extremely heavy bags, and on my own with nobody to check behind me for droppings, I find myself again, beautifully aligned for disaster.

Careless Whispers From the George Michael Camp

There have been some mixed messages from the George Michael camp this week. The weekend was full of reports of friends' 'concern' for the reclusive star as he was, according to them, tucked up in his beautiful North London mansion, refusing to see anyone, embarrassed by apparent weight gain, and scars on his head sustained by his tumble onto the M1 last year.

Filming for Boyhood began when Coltrane was just six years old and ended by the time he turned 18. Because of this, it's is an exceptionally unique observation of adolescence and the stresses and strains that we face growing up.

Live music makes me emotional, it always has done, but with a band like 'No Devotion' it's hard not to get emotional. For those of you that don't know the back story, here is a very, very brief write up, the band is comprised of the remaining 5 ex members of Lostprophets and Geoff Rickly, formerly of Thursday.

This is the week that the Annie Get Your Gun girls have been anticipating/dreading for the past couple of months.

Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige claims that Guardians if the Galaxy, based on a little-known comic book is the biggest gamble he's taken with a film since Iron Man. He's right.  Fortunately like the studios first film, it gets it just right.

Gail Dines | Posted 27.09.2014 | UK Entertainment
Gail Dines

The media is on fire with questions about whether Nicki Minaj went "too far" with the artwork for her next single, Anaconda... Amazingly, what nobody is discussing is the wider issues of the historical roots, cultural resonance and contemporary implications of a mass circulated image that arguably reduces black women to just "big butts" and little more.
