X Factor Scandal Already?

It's only been a week but the X Factor scandal has already started. *sigh* Anyone who saw the first episode last Saturday will probably remember the best and worst auditions - they are always the ones which make the news and are surrounded by a flurry of gossip. Shirlena Johnson and Katie Waissel were two of the ones in the limelight this week - find out why by reading the following articles:

Men, men, men, men manly men!

No, I'm not talking about my love life! :p I am , of course, talking about the fantastic television show, Two and a Half Men! While Charlie Sheen may not be many people's flavour of the month right now, I will always love him. He is an amazing comedy actor with incredible understanding of how to deliver funny lines without overdoing it.  Along with a stellar cast, Charlie Sheen brings Two and a Half Men to life.
My love for this show is immense. I can watch it over and over and still laugh every time! I have recently been thinking about my favourite episodes from each series and it prompted me to write this: Best Two and a Half Men Episodes of Season One

Naturally, there will be an article for each season, but this is the only one so far! More soon!

Just when you thought I had shut up about Pretty Little Liars....

I'm sorry! What can I say, I'm obssessed!

I decided that there are still too many people who aren't watching Pretty Little Liars and who won't have to the time to catch up. Or can't be bothered to watch all of the episodes so far :p so I decided to break down the show in a series of articles. These will form my Beginner's Guide to Pretty Little Liars! So far I have done two,and I wanted to share!

Goodbye Pretty Little Liars - I will miss you!!

I am sad to have to say a farewell to Pretty Little Liars today. Thankfully, it is just heading off for a mid season break my Wednesday morning are going to be boring from now on!

Congratulations to ABC Family for taking this fantastic show and introducing us to the awesomeness of Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell, Ashley Benson and Troian Bellisario. These fine young actresses will all continue to have a bright future and I am not the only one who thinks so! Pretty Little Liars won three Teen Choice Awards this week which further proves how brilliant they are!

I will leave you today with my recap of Pretty Little Liars episode Keep Your Friends Close

Erin Alden Interview

Alberto Albis is a legend. In his very selfless way he has given me the opportunity to interview and review people who I would never have been able to dream of talking to. Alberto Albis singlehandedly opened my ears to some incredible musicians and most impressively, inadvertantly helped to get one of my quotes onto Roy Ashen's promotional video for his album,Eclipse. (Look for the comment from Associated Content- that'sME!!

My most recent interview has been with indie/rock musician Erin Alden, an awesome talent I wish I had known about a long time ago. On hearing her music, I bet you will feel the same. When you listen to it, you can feel that it comes straight from the heart, just as all the best music does. Check out my interview with Erin Alden and click on the link to her music at the end- you will love it!

Robbie Williams is Married - My heart is broken!

Haha, not really! Well, maybe a little. I always loved him, as do legions of others both male and female! But alas, he has gotten away from us and finally got married! The lucky lady is an actress named Ayda Field and I am sure she will forever be the envy of many after bagging our favourite happy-go-lucky bachelor!

In honour of Robbie Williams' wedding (and it's music monday!), let's look at the life and times of Robbie Williams! You should know, I had the hardest time narrowing this down!

You have to be/have been a hardcore Take That fan to remember this one! Back in 1992 when Take That were new, this song showed a very young Take That, including a leather clad Robbie!

Robbie taking the vocal lead on Everything Changes. This song brings back so many memories for me! It will forever be a favourite!

Robbie Williams' first solo single, a cover of Freedom by George Michael

I know everyone knows Robbie Williams for Angels, and although still a favourite, it was too obvious a choice so I am going to replace it with another favourite ballad, Eternity

A change of sound and a controversial video! Rock DJ!

Huge Robbie fans will remember watching this moment, and those who REALLY love him will have and always will cry watching him singing My Way live at the Albert Hall. (and for those who think he is a smug idiot, try to terminate those thoughts because Williams is, in my humble opinion, one of the world's greatest showmen!)

And finally from the latest album - You Know Me

As you can see, Robbie has had a varied career and I hope married life doesn't make it stop for too long!

For more news on his big day, read on! Robbie Williams Weds Ayda Field
