BREAKING NEWS: Lorde named Billboard’s hottest music star under 21?

17-year-old Royals singer Lorde, has officially been named as the hottest music star under 21 by Billboard.

lorde 1

Lorde, whose real name is Ella Yelich-O’Connor, managed to beat a number of chart topping stars to reach the top spot on the annual list – With Australian band 5 Seconds of Summer in second and Justin Bieber gaining third place!

Billboard said that as well as the New Zealander’s musical releases, she had “consistently demonstrated an influence that extends well beyond music, championing an image free of touch-ups and letting young girls know that they don’t have to dress provocatively to capture the public’s attention.”

Billboard’s statement bought light back to when the young star tweeted two photos, one unedited and the other touched-up to rid her of flaws:

Rounding off the top five were Martin Garrix and Fifth Harmony (a girl group initially formed on X Factor US).

Lorde’s mum has since congratulated her by posting a photo of her daughter on Instagram, captioned: “@Billboard’s ‘Most Powerful Young Popstar for 2014’ – congratulations, Ella.”

The singer tweeted in response: “:) thanks mum (and @billboard ).”

We can’t help but agree with Billboard’s choice and we can’t wait to see what Lorde brings the world next!

Introducing Marianas Trench…

We Brumoters love a good sassy, group of musicians and our recent obsession Marianas Trench are no different!

Not only are these lads able to pen incredible songs (most with a hint of sass – including their newest tune Pop 101, which references Justin Timberlake, Ke$ha, Mumford & Sons, Jason Derulo and more!), but they’re also pretty sassy on Twitter!

The Canadian pop rock band is made up of (from Left to Right) – Mike Ayley (Bassist & vocalist), Josh Ramsay (Lead Singer & rhythm guitarist – who also helped pen Carly Rae Jepsen’s summer hit ‘Call Me Maybe), Ian Casselman (Drummer & backing vocalist) & Matt Webb (Lead guitarist & vocalist), who we believe are going to take over the UK with their incredible tracks (though this is as soon as they decide to come to the UK… that’s right lads, we’re waiting!).

Although a few of our Brumoters had found this group nearly 7 years ago, when the band released their debut studio album – they only recently re-discovered the band after the release of their latest tune

And they lads are yet to officially release their albums and tour over here in the UK.

Though if the group are to announce a UK/European tour, we will announce the details for you all!

marianas t

With three albums and two EP’s under their belt, the band have a large arsenal of amazing tracks for you all to check out – like Shake Tramp (the video is just as hilarious as the track title) and Desperate Measures, both of which you’ll be able to listen to via the video below!

The group’s most recent track ‘Pop 101’ is currently available to purchase on iTunes & Amazon, so why not listen to it below before purchasing it!

BREAKING NEWS: G.R.L’S Simone Battle dies aged 25?

G.R.L singer Simone Battle was found dead at the age of 25 in her West Hollywood home.

simone

The news was confirmed in a statement from RCA Records, Reign Deer Entertainment, Robin Antin and Kemosabe Records on Saturday.

The statement read: “We are deeply saddened by the tragic news of the loss of Simone Battle of G.R.L.

“Simone was an exceptional young talent and human being and we are all devastated to learn of her passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and loved ones at this time.”

The news was first reported by the producer Derek Butler, who shared a picture of the star, writing: “I’m still in shock and in disbelief to have confirmed the death of my childhood friend @SimoneBattle,”

Battle first rose to fame when she starred on the US X Factor in 2011 as one of the girls in Simon Cowell’s category.

But she rose to fame as a member of the five-member piece G.R.L, a second generation of the Pussycat Dolls, put together by the original creator Robin Antin.

g.r.l

The group, which is made up of Lauren Bennett, Emmalyn Estrada, Natasha Slayton, Paula van Oppen and Battle were on the verge of becoming household names.

Their single Wild Wild Love with Pitbull reached number six in the UK charts and their newest track, Ugly Heart was released in the UK just this week.

The cause of death is currently unknown and still under investigation.

BREAKING NEWS: Justin Bieber and Cody Simpson announce duets album?

What’s better than a Cody Simpson album? and What is better than a Justin Bieber album?

How about a Justin Bieber AND Cody Simpson duets album!

That’s right guys! Cody announced the big news earlier and like most people, we did not see this coming. However, that doesn’t make us any less excited!

After many teasing Instagram pictures and tweets, many figured that the two biggest acts in pop were working on a song together, but it’s going to be a dream come true as two gorgeous lads are instead working on an entire album!

In an interview with The Sydney Daily Telegraph, Cody said that he and JB teamed up for the duets album and that it will be released sometime in November.

“It is a smack bang duets [album],” he said. “Justin has been a good mate of mine for a while. It’s just us writing. He told me he felt like I’d figured myself out and have grown into what he knows I will be so he was like, ‘I see you as that guitarist, singer-songwriter you’ve always wanted to be.'”

However, Cody said that he and Justin are “definitely different people and come from different places and different worlds.” But mentioned that they are both working well together and that he has always been “extremely cool and gracious” towards him.

No other details have been released about the duets album other than it’s November release date, although Cody has posted a short teasing clip of his new music on Instagram, which you can check out below!

Let us know your opinions on this new announcement? Are you excited for the Cody Simpson and Justin Bieber album collaboration?

The Wanted will stay Gold Forever!

After an hour of singing, dancing, throwing water at their fans and leaving two of our Brumoter writers very emotional, The Wanted left the stage at Fusion Festival for what could have been the last time EVER!

This comes after the group announced an extended hiatus earlier this year (But remember, we also spoke of their ‘last ever performance’ previously in April after their Nottingham show during the ‘Word of Mouth’ Tour so don’t despair TWFanmily, they may have more!)

tom

The group’s appearance sparked controversy even before the event, not only because this was to be their only UK festival appearance, but as it was announced 11 days before the show that Nathan Sykes would NOT be appearing due to solo music commitments!

Leaving fans devastated and the other four boys to go it alone, with the promise from Max George that ‘the proper Wanted’ would be on stage.

However, this didn’t dampen the spirits of the four piece who were determined to make us glad we came and they did not disappoint!

max

Max George, Jay McGuiness, Siva Kaneswaren and last, but not least Tom Parker – put on an electric show, bringing the fun and party atmosphere to the festival (like they’re well known for). Mixing oldies from their debut album, including ‘Lose My Mind’ and ‘All Time Low’ with newer crowd favourites like ‘We Own The Night’ and ‘Lightning’

The Wanted sure know how to put on a great performance as the four heartthrobs left tons of girls screaming and crying – though the lads were quick to comfort fans near the front of the stage to stop the sadness.

Tom even gave the ladies a cheeky flash of his rather perfectly toned abs (We know ladies, we know)!

jay

Even though there were a few vocal hitches and lack of singing in certain songs (Looking at you Mr. McGuiness) – which we put down to lack of rehearsal. However, their vocals remained strong  and their incredible stage presence and bond within the group showed throughout their performance, captivating the audience and showing the lads are pop, at it’s finest!

Before the show, both our Brumoters and fans alike were worried about the lack of Nathan Sykes, however, this didn’t seem to be an issue as the other lads seemed to express their personalities more and interact with the crowd. However, the question on everybody’s lips: Has Nathan already moved on? Or was it simply a case of bad timing (as reported)?

siva

The Wanted’s performance at Fusion Festival showed why they were and will always be one of the biggest boybands of our time, who will sadly be missed (though we hope not for very long, start planning that comeback gentlemen!)

Brumotions give their performance 5/5 microphones! (We apologise Jay, we know you wanted less!)
