During our coverage of Cheryl Cole's 'Fight For This Love' we failed to register suitable disapproval regarding the woeful verse lyrics and apologise to all readers for the distress they may have suffered as a consequence of this oversight.
On Wednesday September 9 we featured Mr Hudson's 'White Lies' as a Song Of The Day. We apologised as soon as we noticed our error but, while we accept that this song may be pleasing to the ears of many Popjustice listeners, we would like to take this opportunity to apologise again for featuring what is, in essence, a load of old boring rubbish.
On September 11, in an article entitled 'Katy Brand 0, Lady Gaga 1', we were slightly too ambiguous in our assessment of Katy Brand's unique (non-unique) brand of humour (not humour). To be clear on this, we are not particularly keen and didn't really feel her Lady Gaga 'pastiche' was very good.
On Popjustice.com and via Twitter we may, through the casual use easy-to-misinterpret phrases like '#teamkeisha', have given the impression that we were 'Team Keisha'. For the sake of clarity, and particularly in light of certain quite astonishing things we have heard about the last few months in the world of the Sugababes, we would like to state clearly that while we still believe Heidi, Amelle and Jade should go out under a new band name, we are firmly Team Heidi & Amelle.
In our article on Ladyhawke's 'creative partnership' with Becks we speculated that the flow of cash could have gone in either direction. Following an eyebrow-raising email we have received from A Close Pal of one party we apologise for suggesting that this deal represented anything other than a massive pile of cash for Ladyhawke.
In our September 25 article on solutions to file sharing, we neglected to mention that the best deterrent of all would be to make music totally terrible and therefore unattractive to downloaders, and we neglected to mention that this brave initative had been cleverly trialed by RCA with artists such as Scouting For Girls, The Script and Will & The People. We apologise to RCA for overlooking their novel, proactive approach to the file sharing problem.
On September 28 in our coverage of songstrel Jessie J we neglected to mention that the voice-of-an-angel warbler in question had toured with Girls Aloud. Apols to all concerned.
On October 1 we totally forgot to do a Popjustice Song Of The Day so Julian Casablancas ended up being Song Of The Day two days in a row, which in a way seems fair as it's a good song but in another way seems unfair on the Popjustice readership and we apologise for all and any inconvenience.
On October 1 we falsely claimed that Miley Cyrus' 'Party In The USA' sleeve was rubbish and featured Miley Cyrus cavorting near a wind machine or spotlight. We now accept that this image was not in fact the sleeve for 'Party In The USA' and that the two correct artworks are in fact, for the USA and Britain, respectively, these:
With regards to our original point about the disused wind manchine you will note that while not visible in the UK sleeve the wind machine has, in fact, been turned on. We apologise to — in this strict order: 1. Popjustice readers for any distress caused, 2. The people who designed the actual UK sleeve which is, in fact, quite good and ironically unropey for a sleeve featuring rope (but the US one is typically bad — the world would be a far better place if The Americans were kept well away from any artwork decisions), 3. Miley Cyrus.
On October 2 in a roundup of Apols for September 2009 we included two Apols for October 1 2009. We now accept that Apols for October 2009 should not have been in the September 2009 Apols roundup and apologise for any distress caused by these actions.
