Hats off to Rachel who totally owned the vocals and gave us chills throughout the three-minute video.

Netflix is releasing a documentary that takes a look at the life of DJ Avicii.

Eight months after his untimely death at 28 years of age, it is a heartbreaking watch. 

The documentary, Avicii: True Stories, was filmed over four years, and there are unsettling statements made throughout including Avicii himself saying, ''There was never an end to the shows, even when I hit a wall. My life is all about stress."

He even states towards the end of the doc that the stressful touring ''will kill me.''

Real name Tim Bergling, the DJ was found dead in April 2018 in Oman. 

It was later confirmed as suicide, with his family saying that he ''could not go on any longer."

Avicii's manager, Ash Pournouri also said, "Tim is going to die, with all the interviews, radio tours and playing. He'll drop dead."

The final scenes from the documentary were supposed to be celebratory and show the DJ chilling on a beach in Madagascar. 

However, it was filmed and had a limited release after Avicii took a break from touring but before he died.

Now the tragic ending, in the words of the director, is ''chillingly false.''

Originally only intended for a limited release in Europe, Avicii: True Stories will be released on Netflix for streaming in the US. and the UK on December 28.

British singer Rita Ora has landed herself in a sticky situation after being accused of lip-syncing during her performance at Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade.

John Legend has also been dragged into the controversy as viewers send in hundreds of complaints regarding the televised event.

Organisers apologised to the audience of millions, citing "technical difficulties" as the reason for the out of sync vocals, which we have to admit are pretty damn cringeworthy:

Ora was singing Let You Love Me when the technical errors occurred, and was hit with a flurry of critique after viewers proclaimed the whole musical event as a falsity.

Macy's released a statement saying:

"Several recording artists experienced technical difficulties that negatively impacted their performance. We apologise and want fans to know these issues were out of the artist’s control."

Watching Ora try and salvage the song on top of a bizarre float is arguably as tough to watch as Cheryl's now-infamous X-Factor performance.

Ora replied to the statement on Twitter, thanking the company for it's candour:

Diana Ross and John Legend also performed, but Ora has faced the brunt of the criticism from the audience.

The "first LGBTQ kiss" in the history of the event also took place during a performance of The Prom.

We feel for Rita, I mean having a blunder during the world's largest parade can't have been easy.

At least her sophomore album Phoenix is on track to hit the UK number 1 slot already, after only being released yesterday.

We think she'll be grand…

The Nicky Byrne Show with Jenny Green on RTÉ 2FM have donated the prize money form their You're Some Laugh competition, which featured the laugh of the late Avicii, a Pieta House. 

The game, which has been going on for the last eight weeks, sees listeners guess which celebrity laugh is played on air each day until the money is won.

For every day the laugh is guessed incorrectly, the prize fund goes up, however, this particular run has been closed and the €840 has been donated to Pieta House, after it was confirmed Avicii took his own life earlier this month. 

The Swedish DJ and producer Avicii, whose real name was Tim Bergling, passed away in a resort in Oman on Friday, April 20, aged just 28.

“It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii,” his representative said in a statement.

“He was found dead in Muscat, Oman this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th.  The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.”

Earlier this week, the musician's family confirmed he had dies by suicide, saying he "could not go on any longer."

They wrote, “Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions. An over-achieving perfectionist who travelled and worked hard at a pace that led to extreme stress.”

“He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness. He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace.”

Yesterday, the tragic news of the passing of EDM DJ and producer Avicii broke.

 Avicii, whose real name was Tim Bergling, sadly died in Oman, aged just 28 years old.

Fans were devastated by the news, many of which felt that Avicii's music defined particular eras of their lives – and Taoiseach Leo Varadkar is no different.

Taking to Twitter, the Taoiseach expressed his sympathies to those effected by Avicii's death. 

He also divulged that Avicii's music had touched him at certain points in his life, specifically the summer of 2013. 

'So sorry to hear of the untimely passing of Avicii,' he wrote.

 

A post shared by Avicii (@avicii) on

'Wake Me Up was the song of the summer of 2013 and my song of the Camino.'

We have to agree that Wake Me Up is one hell of a tune – we'll have the This Is Avicii Spotify playlist on for the day in homage.

The DJ and producer Avicii, whose real name was Tim Bergling, sadly died this afternoon in Oman, according to reports.  

He was just 28 years old.

“It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii,” his representative said in a statement.

“He was found dead in Muscat, Oman this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th.  The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.”

The talented musician had retired from live performing in 2016, citing health reasons though his cause of death has not been confirmed.

Variety reports that he had suffered from health problems for several years, including acute pancreatitis, in part from excessive drinking. After having his gallbladder and appendix removed in 2014, he cancelled a series of shows in an attempt to recover. He quit touring in 2016 but continued making music in the studio.

He posted the following statement on his website last year:

"WE ALL REACH A POINT IN OUR LIVES AND CAREERS WHERE WE UNDERSTAND WHAT MATTERS THE MOST TO US.

For me it’s creating music. That is what I live for, what I feel I was born to do.

Last year I quit performing live, and many of you thought that was it. But the end of live never meant the end of Avicii or my music. Instead, I went back to the place where it all made sense – the studio.

The next stage will be all about my love of making music to you guys. It is the beginning of something new.

Hope you´ll enjoy it as much as I do.”

Tributes are already pouring in on social media with Liam Payne and Charlie Puth among many who are expressing their shock at his death.

They’re at it again!

 

Shiiiiit….

Not too long ago the official Garda Síochána Twitter account was having a great laugh with Ellie Goulding after her little run in with the law in Cork.

Now, the hilarious genius behind the social media account is at it again.

Yesterday’s Avicii concert in Marley Park was the source of many giggles as the hero account had some tongue-in-cheek banter with its 152,000 followers.

They started off with the usual informative snap. Reminding concert goers, and the Gardaí to stay hydrated and wear that all-important SPF. Good job guys.

Then they shared an epic aerial shoot of the venue itself including the massive crowd that gathered to see the DJ’s set.

Oh and they also know we have a soft spot for cute things. So they posted this snap of a four-legged official doing his duties. He’s smiling, adorable.

Then they couldn’t help themselves from sharing some of the selfies music fans were begging the Gardaí in attendance for.

They couldn’t resist swapping their usual attire for a nice snapback.

We thought they had outdone themselves with Ellie, but last night’s entertainment was something else.

Thank you, whoever you are, for keeping those of us who couldn’t make it to the gig highly entertained and informed.

As funny as it was in the episode of OITNB when Alex (Laura Prepon) refers to the newest inmate Stella (Ruby Rose) as Justin Bieber, we didn't realise just how much they look alike until right now. 

The world’s hottest new obsession, Ruby Rose, is the absolute image of the Biebs.

The pair were seen hanging out yesterday backstage at the Avicii concert in Vegas. The Boyfriend singer and breakout actress were both there for the festival, Electric Daisy Carnival.

Ruby posted a photo with Justin to her Instagram and captioned it, “#twinning.”

And she really wasn’t exaggerating – they are identical! That is a whole load of pretty going on.
