Adele Reportedly A No-Show During Band Aid 30′s “Do They Know It’s Christmas” Session

When the first version of the Band Aid collective’s charity single “Do They Know It’s Christmas” was recorded in 1984, the studio session became a media event in of itself.

So on November 15, as new and established musicians alike arrived at London’s Notting Hill to record a new version of the song, this time raising awareness on the current ebola crisis, the media noticed that one notable artist was reportedly missing – Adele.

Despite announcements that she was among the dozen-plus participating artists, “Do They Know It’s Christmas” co-writer Bob Geldof (above, far right) said that Adele never responded to his request, according to The IndependentMore »

Olly Murs Shared A Picture Of His Butt On Twitter Because That’s What Pop Stars Do In 2014

Remember Olly Murs, the British pop star that scored a top 30 hit with Flo Rida-assisted “Troublemaker” in 2013?

Hell, Cody Simpson is already posting nudes!

He captioned the image with lyrics from Sisqo‘s poetic and legendary “Thong Song” and made a quip about shooting a calendar. Olly is clearly pulling out all the stops for album number four. His last effort Right Place Right Time topped the charts in the UK and eventually sold four-times platinum. It also reached the top 20 over here. See the crooner’s tweet after the jump. More »
