Katy Perry is surprisingly honest in ‘Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts’ game

James Corden loves to torture his guests with disgusting food every now and then. The Late Late Show host has now invited Kate Perry to a hilarious round of Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts and, for the first time, something strange has happened.

While most guests force themselves to eat all kinds of gross ‘food’, from bull’s semen to bird saliva, in order to avoid answering Corden’s hard questions, Perry was so disgusted by the culinary options on the table that she made an honest effort to actually give some truthful answers.

For example, when it came to choosing between a 1,000-year-old egg and ranking her lovers, she chose the latter! That’s right; the singer revealed on air that, out of three of her relationships, Orlando Bloom was the best in bed, with John Mayer and then Diplo following suit. Honestly, I would have just eaten the egg! Also, how Corden predicted Diplo’s third place, I’ll never know.

The clip includes many more fun moments, such as Corden having to admit he turned down The Wanted for his Carpool Karaoke segment. As for the band’s fans who, according to Perry, must be angry with the host after this statement, Corden will “happily meet all seven of them in the parking lot at some point!”

On another note, how good does Katy Perry look in the morning!


Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor reunite for 16th anniversary of ‘Moulin Rouge’

It’s been 16 years since Baz Luhrmann’s classic, Moulin Rouge, hit theatres worldwide, but the film still holds a special place in true romantics’ hearts. It’s no wonder, considering the undeniable chemistry of Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman, which gave life to the movie’s already wild spirit.

So it was about time the co-stars sat down to talk about how the Moulin Rouge phenomenon came about. The two of them appeared on Variety’s Actors on Actors series to basically let us know that Moulin Rouge was just as exciting and crazy ‘backstage’ as it turned out to be on screen!

“I remember absinthe being passed out at one point and me going, ‘Is this safe?’” said Kidman, reminiscing about the partying that went on behind the scenes. What’s even more fascinating is the fact that the shooting process lasted an entire year, with the script quite often based on the actors’ own improvisations.

Well, they don’t make them like this anymore!

Throwback Thursday!

This week marked 17 years since the release of Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP (yes, 17 whole years have passed!) so there’s nothing else to do but remember one of the album’s classics.

Even though Stan would be the obvious hit of the record with The Real Slim Shady following suit, I’ve always found The Way I Am to be more special. Touching on the drawbacks of fame in the ever-witty yet angry ‘Eminem way’, the track sets the tone for the album’s overall angst and darkness.

“‘Cause I am, whatever you say I am
If I wasn’t, then why would I say I am?”

Lana Del Rey unveils ethereal clip for ‘Lust For Life’

Lana Del Rey has promised to spread positivity and hope through her new album, and that’s exactly what we’re getting. Following the release of the record’s debut single, Love, Del Rey released Lust For Life about a month ago; now, the song has a brand new clip!

I love how happy and optimistic about life in general this track makes me feel, even though Lana’s characteristic melancholy is still present in the music and the lyrics… Of course, The Weeknd’s amazing vocals next to Lana’s mesmerising voice make Lust For Life even more appealing.

Set on top of the Hollywood sign again, the clip feels oddly real, yet dreamy and ethereal, just like Lana herself. Overall, I think we’ve all missed this happier version of her, the one that was nowhere to be found in her Ultraviolence and Honeymoon records. Besides, this sweet glimmer of hope is all we need in chaotic times like these.

Harry Styles proves he’s still got it in latest Carpool Karaoke

The last time Harry Styles was found singing in James Corden’s car was about a year and a half ago, when he was still one fourth of One Direction. Now, Styles has returned as a solo artist and, somehow, this feels right!

I can’t say this is the most entertaining Carpool Karaoke episode ever – after all, Corden has offered us some amazing ones ever since the segment started – but I can definitely say it’s one of the most interesting ones music-wise.

Styles recently released his debut solo album and this fun car ride is also an excellent way for him to promote his new songs; and he does so successfully. But if you thought he’d be one more Zayn-like r’n’b/ electro artist wanting to blend in, then guess again!

Styles is actually going for soulful – hell, I might even dare to say indie! – with his music. And it seems to be suiting him very well. Who knew he’d be the one from the 1D gang to show his emotional side?

So even though this Carpool Karaoke wasn’t as funny as some of the previous ones, it introduced us to Styles’ bold solo venture, and for that, it was more than worth it. Plus, it’s safe to say he can pull off any outfit!

Muse release surprise song to address current political turmoil

So what if Muse are still promoting their Drones album? That doesn’t mean that the band could possibly stay quiet at a time like this.

Muse are kicking off a new tour with 30 Seconds to Mars tomorrow, but they still found the time to record a new song and film an inspiring video for it, to respond to the political, economic and social chaos that’s been taking over the world.

Dig Down is the band’s reaction to it all, and this time, it’s not as pessimistic as their previous work. Sure, it may seem as if the world is crashing down right now, but Muse urge us to stand our ground and fight, in order to make a change.

All Time Low unveil heartfelt video for ‘Nice2KnoU’

We’re only a few days away from the release of All Time Low’s new album, Last Young Renegade, and the band keeps on dropping new singles, unfolding its story one song at a time.

Nice2KnoU is the latest one to be released, its pop-punk vibe and catchy lyrics echoing All Time Low’s early days. The band is clearly going back to its roots for that one, with the boys literally revisiting their past, dropping by music venues where they’ve performed over the years.

The nostalgic clip serves as a ‘thank you’ to all of those who helped ATL get where they are now. As they mention on their Facebook page, “This song’s a dedication to the people and places that made us who we are today; The ones we owe these stories to. Nice to know you!!”

* All Time Low’s Last Young Renegade is due for release on June 2nd.
