Katy Perry has released a new tune! Kind of. Taking a break from the divorce, Katy has released an acoustic version of ‘The One That Got Away’. She’s made it available as a download in the States which means if it makes the top spot (the original version peaked at number three) Katy will become the first artist in music history to have six number one tracks from a single album. Way to milk a record Katy!

Lady Gaga has become the first person to reach 18m twitter followers, at last count she was on 18,137,279. That’s over 1 million more than the population of the Netherlands, nearly two million more followers than Bieber and um 18,126,427 more than MP! fact fans.

The Wanted have been getting all gushy over fellow boybanders One Direction. Max says they like the boys loads but would love to see what they’re like “after a beer.” Meanwhile Mr George is impressed with Harry Style’s pulling power saying he’s “delighted for the boy” for hooking up with Caroline. Nathan doesn’t sound so pleased though commenting that he thought he had something special with Ms Flack, get in line Nath.

All hail the power of pop! New figures show that pop music dominated the charts last year grabbing 33.6% of the market compared to rock which took just 29.4%, a big reduction on the last few years. Adele helped push pop with her album 21 the top selling album of 2011 whilst Rihanna, Gaga and Jessie J were also in the top ten. Well done pop fans!

Tinie Tempah is the latest popstar to turn fashion designer. Tinie has been in Milan for the past week studying up on things fashion and working through the night in his own studio. He hopes to release his Disturbing London clothes line later in the year, bring on the bow ties and geek glasses!

Relations seem to be thawing between Nadine Coyle and the rest of Girls Aloud. Last night Nadine announced she was grieving for the death of a close friend and Chez was quick to jump on twitter and send her love: “I just want you to know I am thinking of you at this sad and tragic time. I’m so sorry to hear of your lost. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. God bless you all. All my love Cheryl xx.” Now everyone whisper it so we don’t scare the love away, “Girls Aloud reunion?”
