It looks like Tove Lo’s going to have to cancel her already-rescheduled London ‘gig’, and the one in Manchester, given that she’s now got cysts on her vocal chords (!) and won’t be able to sing a note for two months.

The news was broken via the medium of Twitter in the following manner:

The London show was due to be at KOKO on January 22, with the Manchester one the next day at the Academy 2.

It looks likely McBusted are supporting One Direction on their Australian tour http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/it-looks-likely-mcbusted-are-supporting-one-direction-on-their-australian-tour/133131/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/it-looks-likely-mcbusted-are-supporting-one-direction-on-their-australian-tour/133131/#comments Tue, 16 Dec 2014 12:39:33 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=133131 mcbusted-promo-3

It looks like ‘Air Guitar’ hitmakers McBusted will support One Direction on the Australian ‘leg’ of their On The Road Again tour next year.

It hasn’t been officially confirmed by either Matt or Niall, but this usually quite reliable Twitter account have said its happening so that’s good enough for us:

It was confirmed by a journalist for News Corp too, and anyway they’ve toured together before so it’s not exactly beyond the realms of possibility is it.

Britney’s new single will appear at the “beginning of next year” and will feature Iggy Azalea http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/britneys-new-single-will-appear-at-the-beginning-of-next-year-and-will-feature-iggy-azalea/133111/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/britneys-new-single-will-appear-at-the-beginning-of-next-year-and-will-feature-iggy-azalea/133111/#comments Mon, 15 Dec 2014 09:27:17 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=133111 BritneyBritney Spears’ new single will be out early next year and will feature the dulcet tones of collaboration-shy rapper Iggy Azalea.

In fact it was the ‘No Mediocre’ hitmaker herself who confirmed the song’s existence during an interview at Kiss 108’s Jingle Ball thing.

Chatting about how she was going to Vegas to watch Britney’s show and that she was excited about finally meeting her, she then added: “We have a song that’s going to be her first single coming out next year”.

Asked to say a bit more about that she confirmed it was “awesome” and then said the following about how it all came to be:

“She said she would like to work with me in an interview and they kind of reached out and we recorded a few different things and one of those just ended up just being I think undeniably great. Hopefully everybody will get to hear it the beginning of next year.”

Exciting times.

Because he is Pitbull, Pitbull’s remixed Taylor Swift’s ‘Blank Space’ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/pitbulls-remixed-taylors-blank-space-because-well-of-course-he-has/133098/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/pitbulls-remixed-taylors-blank-space-because-well-of-course-he-has/133098/#comments Mon, 15 Dec 2014 08:44:18 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=133098 Pitbull

Modern day Hugh Hefner Pitbull has taken it upon himself to remix Taylor Swift’s ‘Blank Space’ and the results can be heard below.

He’s basically just added a bit of a rap to the beginning of the song, which he introduces as his “favourite records out right now” and the whole thing seems to be some sort of vigilante effort.

There’s a slightly confusing bit about perfect imperfections and of course “face” is rhymed with “space”.

Enjoy! (Soundcloud nicked off Josep, obviously):

Fleur East’s X Factor winner’s single has been announced http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/fleur-easts-x-factor-winners-single-has-been-announced/133033/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/fleur-easts-x-factor-winners-single-has-been-announced/133033/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=133033 fleur-east2

Fleur East’s X Factor winner’s single will be a cover of One Republic’s ‘Something I Need’, it’s been announced.

‘Ben Haenow’ has also recorded the same song, while pug fetishist Andrea Faustini’s warbled his way through Whitney Houston’s ‘I Didn’t Know My Own Strength’.

A ‘source’ with close connections to both The X Factor and the Mirror had this to say about it all:

“Whoever wins, the song choices are very strong. They are set to be sure-fire hits.”

A sleighbell-infused remix of ‘Uptown Funk’ would have been nice, but this will do for now.

Madeon’s finally finished his album and is allowed to take the rest of the year off http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/madeons-finally-finished-his-album-and-is-allowed-to-take-the-rest-of-the-year-off/133007/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/madeons-finally-finished-his-album-and-is-allowed-to-take-the-rest-of-the-year-off/133007/#comments Wed, 10 Dec 2014 15:51:29 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=133007 Madeon looking up

BOOM! Madeon’s new album is finished.

BANG! It’s called ‘Adventure’.

CRASH! It will be out next year.

All this news was communicated in rather less dramatic terms by the ‘Imperium’ hitmaker himself via the medium of Facebook and just to prove we’re not making this all up, this is what he had to say:

“I just delivered my album to the label, feels like a big day. It’s called “Adventure”. I’m hoping the name will make a lot of sense once you listen to it (it’ll be released next year.)”

He also said “2015 should be fun”, but to be quite honest we’ll be the judge of that once we’ve heard the album. Either way, with all that work now out of the way Madeon has full permission to whack on his out-of-office, slam his laptop shut and retire to ‘le pub’ until January.

Lorde’s popped a bit of an old/new song on her Tumblr http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/lordes-popped-a-bit-of-an-oldnew-song-on-her-tumblr/133001/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/lordes-popped-a-bit-of-an-oldnew-song-on-her-tumblr/133001/#comments Wed, 10 Dec 2014 14:38:43 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=133001 lorde-bbc-thing

Probable genius Lorde has uploaded a bit of a previously unheard song called ‘Lost Boys’ to her Tumblr.

According to the blurb she’s written to accompany it all, she’s not a massive fan of the song (“it was not a good song, I promise”) so the full version will never see the light of day, apols.

Listen to it here if you like.

Rihanna’s shared a bit of a new song possibly called ‘Kiss It Better’ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/rihannas-shared-a-bit-of-a-new-song-possibly-called-kiss-it-better/132989/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/rihannas-shared-a-bit-of-a-new-song-possibly-called-kiss-it-better/132989/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=132989 Rihanna

Semi-retired popstar and full-time perfumer Rihanna’s popped a tiny bit of another new song on the internet, potentially called ‘Kiss It Better’.

The Instagram video shows her touring guitarist Nuno playing along to the song for about five seconds and then there’s some chat about a different version of the song and then it plays again at the end.

Then the whole thing stops and we likely have to wait another few weeks to hear anything else. :(

It’s rumoured the song was co-written with Natalia Kills, Glass John and Jeff Bhasker.

Here it is anyway:
