Remember When You Were An Insane Lovesick

Remember When You Were An Insane Lovesick Teenager?

I'm about to tell you something very embarrassing but I'm only telling you on the basis you've probably done something similarly desperate before. When I was 15, struggling with my sexuality and obsessed with the Sugababes, I fell head over heels with a girl.

Do We Still Need Pride In

Do We Still Need Pride In 2017?

I can't tell you how many times someone has said to me, 'you don't look like a lesbian', which to me is like saying to someone in plain clothes, 'you don't look like a police officer'. If only there was a uniform we could all decide on so you'd be able to see us coming, we tried dungarees but then they came back in fashion, same with chinos and camouflage

Text Kiss

Text Kiss Politics

Love bravely, text wildly and add an x wherever you go. Take back control. It's your choice to put the x not theirs and if you're not ready, don't put that x. If they take back their x, laugh wildly with your head back because they could not be as brave as you.

The Night

The Night Tube

I wouldn't like to assume what the Night Tube is going to be like but after once speaking to the ticket inspector on the high speed service from St Pancras International to Strood, I understand that the later the service, the more unpleasant the experience. He nick named that service the Vomit Comet, which I think dangerously glamourises it.

NEW MUSIC: Glass Caves in

NEW MUSIC: Glass Caves in Manchester

An alternative rock band from York, these four boys have already released a strong self funded album. 12,000 likes on Facebook and over 200,000 plays on spotify, they clearly have something that people want to know about. I managed to grab time with the lead man Matt, in the pub opposite the gig.

All Hail

All Hail Halsey

If you have no idea who I'm talking about and have some doubt in my hype, on Spotify Halsey has 86 million plays on the single which she is currently bringing to UK radio. So get a grip on the reality of how the music industry works now and get involved.

Six Ways to Use Social Media to Play Mind

Six Ways to Use Social Media to Play Mind Games

1. Crop them out of your profile picture. I know you think we're probably past that, it's 2016, it's something you do to your mates on a weekly basis but stop. This is the semi-crop. You need to leave in a creepy amount of them, like a single eye in the corner of the photo.

Six Ways To Tell If He Likes You*

No no, we're not talking Lynx Africa, we're talking potent pheromones that get your heart racing without you even realising it.

Pranksters Give Me Sleepless

Pranksters Give Me Sleepless Nights

I actually think pranks are quite a lame form of entertainment. There are a few internet stars whom I loath for their apparent success (via click of likes) for doing something as shitty as sticking a chilli pepper up their brother's arse whilst he sleeps. JUST BECAUSE HE'S YOUR BROTHER DOESNT MEAN HE SHOULDN'T PRESS CHARGES.

Squad Goals and Vom

Emma Stone, Jennifer Lawrence and Adele (does anyone actually know her surname?) jump in the back of a taxi, the driver says 'Where to?'

Hanging Out Backstage With One

Hanging Out Backstage With One Direction

This week, I met one half of the biggest pop bands in the world. Two of the most talked about individuals in 2015 pop culture and as I entered the room to grill them some more, they stood up and gave me a welcoming hug.

Selena Gomez, I'm So Sorry to Hear Your

Selena Gomez, I'm So Sorry to Hear Your News

News has now broken that pop sensation, Hollywood actress and teen idol Selena Gomez has been suffering with lupus and has been treating it with chemotherapy. This is another bit of evidence that you needed to believe that celebrities, even at the dizziest heights of fame, are real people.
