Liam Gallagher reveals: ‘I was crazy for Madonna’
For years the star had us believe it was The Stone Roses that got him into the singing groove.
But he finally opened his heart and revealed he was crazy for Madge first.
But Liam only lives to tell his Madonna fetish after surviving a serious blow to the head.
Justifying his love, Liam explained: “I was always into football and I was never really into music.
“But then I got into some trouble at school, this geezer whacked me with this hammer and split my head open. When I woke up the first piece of music which went into my brain was Like A Virgin by Madonna.
“I was sitting in hospital, singing along to Like A Virgin. I was thinking: ‘What the f***?’.
“So Madonna, thank you very much”
“So Madonna, thank you very much.”
But Liam must be disappointed that Madonna is a big fan of estranged brother Noel’s music first and foremost.
She even attended his 50th birthday party this year, unlike Liam.
Noel, meanwhile, has been teasing new solo music of his own.
He posted a picture of a tattered banner that read “It’s A Beautiful World”, thought to be the title of a song.
It will arrive after Liam’s solo debut, As You Were, which lands October 6.
Liam added: “This album I guess is the most personal album I’ve ever been involved with, because I’ve written the majority of it… there’s a lot of truth in it.”
Blue star Simon Webbe credits his stint on Strictly with helping him cope with mental health issues.
The singer, who releases solo album Smile on October 13, revealed the dancing competition helped him overcome the serious confidence issues he was battling.
Speaking to the new edition of Gay Times (out now), he said: “Strictly helped me tremendously with my confidence. Because I was going through mental health issues beforehand, doing something physical helped, releasing endorphins and achieving something really helped.
“And speaking about what I was going through helped a lot, too.”
It was so bad beforehand that he says: “I hated who I was and started questioning my whole life.”
Maybe Prince fans should be singing Orange Rain…
That’s because purple was not the late icon’s favourite colour after all.
Ahead of the My Name Is Prince exhibition – which opens at London’s O2 this October – sister Tyka Nelson revealed: “It is strange because people always associate the colour purple with Prince, but his favourite colour was orange.”
The Pantone Color Institute even recently created a Prince-inspired shade of purple too – dubbing the shade “Love Symbol #2”.
Acting could be on the cards for Stormzy after dropping a mini movie for single Cigarettes & Cush featuring Kehlani.
The grime superstar plays a drug dealer who’s in love with a police officer, played by Andrea Ali, who saves him from being busted.
And fans were quick to praise the MC on his acting abilities in the five-minute clip, with one claiming Stormzy “deserves an award”.
First the MOBO Awards, then the BRITs, next the Oscars?
Rising star Tinashe is yet to get fed up with the showbiz paps.
Unlike most other pop stars Calvin Harris’s ex was all smiles when she was snapped outside a restaurant in West Hollywood.
With her highly anticipated album Joyride expected to drop very soon, Tinashe’s likely to reach a new level of success – meaning she too will soon be hiding under a security guard’s jacket.
Fans are expecting Tinie Tempah to return the favour and feature on the LP after she featured his Text From Your Ex.
Little Mix have the perfect reason to not give up on that dream summer body just yet.
We may be approaching autumn but, with a heatwave on the way, it’s not time to dig out the onesies and chocolate just yet.
The girls are launching a new sportswear collection with USA Pro on Monday, and Jade Thirlwall has treated us to a sneak peak of her own design.
The Cyrus family proved what a talented bunch they are as they filmed a special family edition of Carpool Karaoke.
In the clip, which aired on Apple Music yesterday, they ripped through their own hits including Miley’s Party In The USA, dad Billy Ray’s Achy Breaky Heart and Noah’s new song Stay Together.
The short film ends after picking up Trace and they jam to his band Metro Station’s classic hit Shake It, with Noah and Miley climbing out of the car for a little dance-off.
Try to imagine the combined royalties that family gets.
Charli XCX is the go-to hitmaker singers approach when their careers require a chart boost.
But there’s one the Boys star has yet to trade semi-quavers with. “I’ve never worked with Ed Sheeran,” said the pop princess, whose songs have been recorded by Rita Ora and Blondie.
“I think he’s an incredible songwriter and he has such a great ear for melodies, I’d love to one day.”
Shame Ed didn’t partake in Charli’s all-star Boys video.
Chart-topper Dua Lipa is still busy tanning those Dua legs in Capri.
Meanwhile, across the other side of the world, her hit New Rules has been given a trap heavy remix courtesy of Aussie DJ Alison Wonderland.
After two weeks at No1, the mix breathes new life into the smash.
Maybe Dua has a chance of holding off Taylor Swift from top spot after all.
