On February 25 we posted a picture of Swedish songstrel Nottee posing with a large dog, and captioned this picture 'Amazing'. We now accept that the photograph is 'Nothing Short Of Literally Amazing'.
In an article on musician Japayork, we stated that record labels sign "any old shit" "every day of the week". Following complaints we are happy to correct our original statement. Labels do not sign shit on Tuesdays.
On February 23 we reviewed the debut live show — in a church — by new band Hurts. In this review we mentioned that, when we tweeted a photograph of audience member Little Boots sitting on a church seat with the caption 'I'm gonna take pew out tonight', "NOT ONE PERSON lolled or RTd it or anything". Following complaints via Twitter we now accept that this landmark in comedy history was indeed RTd by at least two Popjustice followers. We also accept that 'Pew In Town' may have been a better caption, and apologise.
When we covered the video of Alex Gardner's 'I'm Not Mad' we stated that in Gardner's interpretation of "being stuck in a room of mirrors" he was "acting badly". We now accept that having never seen Alex Gardner being genuinely lost in an actual room of mirrors we had no way of knowing what his genuine reaction would be, and therefore have no base for a claim that his video-based representation of lostness in a mirrored room was in any way unconvincing, as it may indeed have been a totally accurate portrayal of just such an eventuality. We apologise to Gardner and his family for any offence cause by our claims.
On February 17, in an article titled 'Where now for Robbie Williams?', we stated that, as part of a longterm plan to get his career back on track, Robbie Williams would need to record new music with Take That. We implied that this recording was yet to take place, and apologise for this inaccuracy. Also on February 17 we claimed that Abbey Road Studios should be replaced by "an apartment block with a gift shop at the bottom". We now accept that the best outcome would be an apartment block, a gift shop and a cheaply knocked-together recording studio at which deluded, usually guitar-led rock acts could book vastly overpriced studio time in the misguided hope that some 'Beatles magic' might rub off on their terrible, unlistenable music.
On February 15, in an article on US singer Livvy and her single 'Jailbait', we noted that this was "a song celebrating the lighter side of paedophilia with a social conscience and lightness of touch that makes Ke$ha seem almost sentient". Unbelievably it seems this was misinterpreted as positive coverage — at least by Livvy herself, who quotes it in her MySpace.
In an article on new Xenomania protogee Florrie we used the headline 'Who's Florrie now?'. We now accept that 'Florrie seems to be the hardest word', 'Hard to say I'm Florrie' and 'Here & Now / You'll Be Florrie' would have been better headlines, and we apologise without reservation to all offended parties.
On February 8 we were perhaps mildly sarcastic about the rock credentials of Daisy Dares You. We have however since seen footage from a GMTV appearance in which Daisy's love of Nirvana is explained so that certainly puts to rest any queries over Daisy's authenticity. Thank you, GMTV, for helping settle that confusion.
