Jess Glynne's Brit Awards performance has been hailed as "inspirational" after she removed her makeup during the song, backed by a legion of women.

She performed her hit single Thursday surrounded by fellow ladies removing their cosmetics in front of the audience, and we got CHILLZ (They're multiplyin').

Glynne looked stunning in a white strapless dress for the rendition, and emoved her false eyelashes and wipes off her eyeshadow during the lyrics; "I won’t wear makeup on Thursday, 'cause who I am is enough”.

The star was joined by a group of fellow women who also donned white for the occasion, and simultaneously removed their makeup using hand towels in front of vanity mirrors.

Halfway through the tune, the British singer was joined by two-time Grammy winner H.E.R, and the standout moment became all the more powerful.

A video of countless women removing makeup played behind them, showing the need to fight back against society's strict and unrealistic beauty standards for women.

Twitter has gone absolutely wild with praise for the pair, with one person even tweeting; “That was one of the most empowering performances I’ve ever seen." YAS.

The moment came just after The 1975 frontman and absolute feminist legend Matt Healy accepted band’s award for “Best British Group” and spoke out about misogyny in the entertainment industry.

The relevance; we heart.

Healy quoted an article written about singer Ryan Adams by friend and music journalist Laura Snapes, who writes for The Guardian and Pitchfork.

“Male misogynist acts are examined for nuance and defended as traits of ‘difficult’ artists, while women and those who call them out are treated as hysterics who don’t understand art.”

Bravo Jess, and Bravo Matt. We love you both, keep slamming the ridiculous standards of the music business.

Calvin Harris has officially announced the release of his upcoming album Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1.

The Scottish hit-maker made the announcement on Twitter earlier today with a teaser clip that shows an extensive list of collaborators set to feature on the record.  

Travis Scott, Kehlani, Future, Katy Perry, Big Sean, John Legend, Khalid, Schoolboy Q, D.R.A.M., Nicki Minaj, Lil Yachty, Jessie Reyez, PARTYNEXTDOOR, and Snoop Dogg are all set to make guest appearances and it's safe to say fans are pretty happy. 

Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 is out on June 9.


Having covered the likes of Coldplay, Garth Brooks and Adele, Coláiste Lurgan is already well established in the Irish music scene.

Combining its students’ linguistic and musical talents once again, the Irish language school recently took on one of 2016’s biggest hits.

Earlier this week, the popular Gaelscoil released its own rendition of Calvin Harris and Rihanna’s This Is What You Came For.

As with all of Coláiste Lurgan’s musical ventures, the track has been translated into Irish and is accompanied by a thought provoking music video.

Check it out below:



Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris had a pretty nasty split at the start of this Summer.

Not only did the singer RUSH into a new relationship with Tom Hiddleston (we're still a tad confused with that one), but Tay also outed Calvin on Twitter, telling the world that she was the one that wrote his hit song This Is What You Came For.

It was pretty bad, so that's why we're super surprised to hear that they've kissed and made up! As friends, that is.

According to TMZ, when Taylor split with Tom, Calvin and his former lover started texting again in order to clear the air.

Apparently, they're now back to being besties… but we're not so sure.

We all know how hard it is to be friends with someone after a break-up AND it ended pretty badly, so those ill-feelings will be difficult to get past too.

For the sake of friendship, we hope they're on good terms… but as we've learned from past events, Taylor is the Queen of Cover-ups *cough, cough… Kanye*.



Following a whirlwind three-month romance which played out in front of the world's cameras, Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston's highly-publicised relationship took a sudden turn.

The pair, who went in for some serious spew-inducing PDA over the course of the summer, hurtled towards splitsville before eventually parting ways last week.

And it sounds like Calvin Harris, also known as Adam Wiles, saw it coming from miles off.

The Scottish DJ, who dated Taylor for 15 months, was – like the rest of us – privy to the comings and goings of Hiddleswift, and apparently he didn't see it ending well.

Speaking to E! News, an insider admitted that the break-up was no big shock, saying: "Adam is not surprised that the relationship did not work with Tom and Taylor."

"He is just happy not to be in the relationship anymore and realised they were not a good fit in the end, but he wishes her the best." they added.

And while Taylor is reportedly swearing off men for the foreseeable future in an effort to concentrate on her career, Calvin is more than happy to play the field right now.

"He is dating a few different women," the source told the station. "Nothing has stuck. He is not looking for a relationship at all, just fun times with friends."

So, Calvin and Taylor's break-up might still be fresh in the minds of fans, but it sounds like the DJ is chill as ever.

" Adam is in a much better place after the breakup with Taylor.”

Well, good to know, right?


Earlier this week the world of celebrity romance was once again thrown into chaos when it was revealed that Hiddleswift had officially come to an end.

And while Selena Gomez may have encouraged her gal pal Taylor Swift to move on from Tom by focusing on the music, we’re not sure Calvin Harris’ music is quite what she had in mind.

In a new post on her Instagram account, the Wildest Dreams singer can be seen bopping along to her Scottish ex’s track This Is What You Came For while supporting her BFF Gigi Hadid as she walked the Tommy Hilfiger runway.

The post was captioned: “SO PROUD OF YOU GIGI!!!!! That show was INSANE.  Congrats to Gi, Tommy, and all the girls who just owned that runway.”

Does this mean Taylor’s put any Bad Blood she had with Calvin behind her?  We certainly hope so!


Looking up videos of kittens hugging each other, probably.

When Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift called it quits earlier this year, the vast majority of us waited for the inevitable fall-out, but for some time, save for a diplomatic tweet on the part of Calvin, there was nothing but radio silence.

Until there wasn't.

As Taylor launched into one of the most talked-about romances of the year with British actor, Tom Hiddleston, the media plagued Calvin for comment on his former girlfriend's new romance.

And, unsurprisingly, as he found himself dragged into the media circus that was the Hiddleswift saga, the Scottish DJ cracked, and called Tay out on Twitter in a move which he says led to all hell breaking loose.

Responding  to Taylor's decision to reveal she co-wrote Rihanna's This Is What You Came For with him, Calvin hit out at her motives.

"I know you’re off tour and you need someone new to try and bury like Katy ETC but I’m not that guy, sorry. I won’t allow it," he tweeted at the time.

Reflecting on the fall-out from that decision, Calvin recently told GQ: "When it ended, all hell broke loose. Now I see that Twitter thing as a result of me succumbing to pressure."

"It took me a minute to realise that none of that stuff matter. I’m a positive guy,"  he added.

While acknowledging that break-ups happen all the time, Calvin admitted he didn't anticipate the drama that followed their split.

"For both of us it was the wrong situation. It clearly wasn’t right so it ended, but all that stuff that happened afterwards…"

Give it a few months and we'll be hearing Tom's version of the saga…


Ah, the lives of the rich and famous.

Calvin Harris doesn’t seem very phased by the big break-up news this morning. 

As the news has broken that Taylor Swift has split up with Tom Hiddleston, the DJ spent last night partying with Tay's BFF Ellie Goulding in London. Ouch!

The old friends were chilling together at 19th Annual GQ Men of the Year Awards.

Calvin won Man of the Year last night so no doubt he really doesn't care about the HiddleSPLIT.


Thank you GQ for my Man Of The Year award!!!!

Calvin originally shared the picture on Snapchat and Ellie later reposted it on Instagram.

All is fair in love and war, eh, Calvin?


Taylor Swift might have Calvin beat in the rebound department, but that doesn’t mean the Scottish DJ has been missing from the world of dating since their drama-filled Summer split.

And while the This Is What You Came For hitmaker has been linked to numerous women over the past couple of months, it seems he’s now set his sights on Mexican actress Eiza González.

After the 32-year-old record producer was seen leaving a friend’s party in LA with the 26-year-old singer on Saturday night, PEOPLE reported that the pair have been “talking and hanging out”.


Who's READY? #fromdusktilldawn is almost here !!! #santanicopandemonium

But before we all jump to conclusions and start calling Eiza Calvin’s BAE, a source told Us that the pair’s relationship is still “very new” and that they had “wanted to keep it low-key for a while” until pictures of them together surfaced and pretty much scrapped any chance of that happening.

The source also claimed Calvin and Eiza – who has previously been linked to Liam Hemsworth and Cristiano Ronaldo – are “both happy” but suggested that neither star is getting carried away with the romance right now.

Will Eiza and Calvin become an item?  For now, we'll just have to wait and see.



Well, this was unexpected.

Calvin Harris took to Instagram yesterday to wish his manager, Mark Gillespie, a happy birthday. However, the snap he posted has probably made every woman's eyes pop by now.

Standing beside a fully-clothed Mark, Calvin left little to the imagination as he stood beside him with nothing on but his Emporio Armani boxers on.


Happy birthday to my manager @gillespiemark I love u

Calvin simply captioned the post: "Happy birthday to my manager @gillespiemark I love u."

His fans we're delighted with the photo, but couldn't help but wonder why he choose this one to post? Does he not have any other snaps with his manager? Hmm…

Anyways… Whose birthday was it…



We thought Mollie King and her ex-boyfriend David Gandy were #CoupleGoals, but when they broke up last January we let those goals slip away.

However, now it seems that Mollie is going after another very famous man, and his name is Calvin Harris.

Speaking to the Mail Online, Mollie said of Calvin: "Body aside, he's definitely got the banter.

"I have seen some of his Snapchats, and he's got a good dry sense of humour like myself."


1 day to go… #backtoyou

With Mollie releasing her first solo track this week, Calvin better hurry up and snap the beauty before anyone else does!



It's safe to say a lot of us had a few dodgy jobs growing up, but Calvin Harris' list is quite… unique.

A lot of controversy has been surrounding the DJ lately, so he took some time out on Twitter to tell his fans what his first jobs were.

Writing in a list, Calvin has worked in a fish factory, Marks & Spencers and Safeway over the years:

In the place of number seven, Calvin just leaves a question mark, and I can't help but think he's trying to tell us something.

Is he going to embark on a new career? Or is he just going to do some spin-off business?

Believe me, watch this space.
