One of the best pop events in the summer calendar (in MP!’s humble opinion), T4 on the beach will celebrate it’s 10th anniversary this year. The gig will spend its eighth year in Weston-super-Mare on 1st July, with organisers already promising “this year’s line-up will be the best yet.” Tickets go on sale in March. EEK!
The saying goes that the band that share together stay together, or something along those lines. In which case JLS are gonna be around for a long time. Marvin has shared his romantic proposal to Rochelle with the rest of the JLS boys. Smooth operator Marvin filmed the big event and after viewing it, Aston reckons “it was better than Michael Jackson flying out of the arena on his Dangerous Tour.” Quite the compliment. Marvin has repaid Aston’s kind words by promising to spend Valentines Day with his band-mate because Rochelle is out of the country. It’s also Aston’s birthday on February 13th so Marv better double up on gifts.
The judges on new talent show The Voice have joined forces to form a super-group. The motley crew of Jessie J, Tom Jones, will.i.am and That Bloke Who Replaced Will Young sung together at the taping of the show last week. Apparently audience members “jumped out of their seats” when the group performed ‘I’ve Gotta Feeling.’ Reports that the “jumping” was actually due to Tom Jones’ gyrating are still unconfirmed. In other Voice news, Simon Cowell is apparently pretty peeved that the BBC have scheduled the show to clash with Britain’s Got Talent, he’s called it a “declaration of war.” We’ll see who gets beaten to a pulp when both shows air in March.

After skating her troubles away on Dancing On Ice Heidi Range is ready to take on the world. Speaking to the Sunday Mirror Heidi credits the show for giving her her “groove back” after her recent break-up. In fact she’s even thinking about a solo album. Everyone wave bye-bye to the Sugababes.
More news on that original Sugababes reunion. Despite the girls denying they’re reforming there’s fresh reports that Mutya, Keisha and Siobhan have recorded a song together. The latest rumours are that the band recorded a track called ‘Love Like This’, written by Emeli Sandé and produced by Naughty Boy, at a recording studio last week AND are working on a comeback album. The trio are said to be really dedicated to the project with Siobhan even leaving her job in the City to concentrate on the music BUT Keisha wants to get her solo work out before the band’s new material. Everyone caught up? Good, it’ll be all change this time tomorrow.
Jessie J reckons she can heal the world by shaving her head this year. She’s been chatting about her plan to get rid of her locks in aid of charity and the inspiration behind her much-publicised stunt. When she broke her foot last year Jessie spent time visiting kids in hospital and realised “I need to use being someone that people know to do something good for the world.” Translation: She’ll be going bald. Good luck Jessie! MP! once sat in a bath of baked beans for a Blue Peter appeal and raised £23.50, not quite enough to heal the world.
