Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift’s latest album Folklore has returned to number one in America, becoming the first record to sell more than a million copies in 2020. The star’s low-key eighth album was recorded during lockdown and released as a surprise for fans in August. The best-reviewed album of her career, it is widely expected to pick […]

It’ll be a battle between ballads and bangers at this year’s Brit Awards, with Lewis Capaldi and Dave pitched against each other in four categories. The Scottish torch singer and the Streatham-born rapper are both up for best male, best newcomer, best single and album of the year at the ceremony, which takes place in […]

Katy Perry has sent Taylor Swift an actual olive branch, seemingly ending the beef between the two megastars.

Katy Perry says her new album isn’t about her “feud” with Taylor Swift. Asked whether she’d respond to Taylor’s track Bad Blood, Katy said there wasn’t anything on her latest record that was “calling out any one person”. “This record is not about anyone else. This record is about me being seen and heard so […]

Katy Perry has helped her sister Angela give birth before heading straight back to the studio to work on new music. This is the second time the singer has been in the delivery room. Back in February 2014, she revealed she “helps delivers babies in living rooms” after being present at her sister’s labour. Now […]
