In case anyone has been living under a cinematic rock, you’ll 100% have heard the perfection that is Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s new movie: A Star is Born.

Between the singing, the emotional acting and the beautiful soundtrack, we pretty much exploded with all those feels.

It looks like we’re not the only ones who felt that way: Gavin James has released a cover of the song Shallow on Twitter and it’s as good as you’d imagine.

Went to see “A Star is born” and it put me in a glass case of emotion..so I thought I’d do a little bit of Shallow

As a talented singer songwriter himself, he definitely connected to the emotion of Lady Gaga and Bradley Copper’s stunning performance.

He is already renowned himself for his musical skills and powerful voice, but his covers are just as amazing.

He’s made the song his own, who would have thought that was possible when it comes to a Lady Gaga tune?

Judging by his Twitter feed, we’re guessing he liked the movie… just a lil bit…

This is definitely brightened up our Monday mornings, the winter chill doesn’t seem quite as bad somehow.

James is gearing up for the release of his second album, Only Ticket Home, and is bringing his tour home for Christmas=

After listening to his cover of Shallow, we’re sure his new album will fly off the shelves.

Is it too much to hope for a Lady Gaga x Gavin James collaboration? A new tune, maybe an album, and throw in a few tours for good measure?

Lena Dunham isn't shy when it comes to showcasing her body on her hit TV show Girls.

However, getting the fashion industry to accept a regular sized, cellulite speckled physique isn't always the easiest endeavour.

This week Lena is praising Glamour for showing off her gorgeous, un-retouched body on the cover of it's February edition.

The cover sees Lena posing with her Girls co-stars Jemina Kirke, Allison Williams and Zosia Mamet, decked out in Spice Girls-esque platform booties and rainbow hued ensembles from Marc Jacob's new season. 

Most magazines air brush out any signs of imperfection, from cellulite to moles to less than symmetrical features (Lena was previously caught up in a photoshop drama with Vogue), but February's Glamour cover shows Lena just as she is, cellulite and all. 

Taking to Instagram, Lena praised the fashion tome for their inclusivity and penned a heartfelt caption about her experiences with body shaming. 

"Throughout my teens I was told, in no uncertain terms, that I was f**king funny looking. Potbelly, rabbit teeth, knock knees — I could never seem to get it right and it haunted my every move," she wrote.

"I posed as the sassy confident one, secretly horrified and hurt by careless comments and hostility. Let's get something straight: I didn't hate what I looked like — I hated the culture that was telling me to hate it."

"When my career started, some people celebrated my look but always through the lens of 'Isn't she brave? Isn't it such a bold move to show THAT body on TV?'"

"Then there were the legions of trolls who made high school teasing look like a damned joke with the violent threats they heaped on, the sickening insults that made me ache for teen girls like me who might be reading my comments."

"Well, today this body is on the cover of a magazine that millions of women will read, without photoshop, my thigh on full imperfect display," she continued.

"Whether you agree with my politics, like my show or connect to what I do, it doesn't matter — my body isn't fair game. No one's is, no matter their size, colour, gender identity, and there's a place for us all in popular culture to be recognised as beautiful."

Lena's cover is getting lots of positive feedback online, with fans rejoicing over the display of body positivity.

However, like all images featuring women who chose to detach themselves from typical beauty norms, the image is also garnering hate from online trolls. 

"Haters are gonna have to get more intellectual and creative with their disses in 2017 because none of us are going to be scared into muumuus by faceless basement dwellers, or cruel blogs, or even our partners and friends," said the star. Hear hear!

With access to the best costume departments and makeup artists in the world, if there’s one thing celebrities do well, it’s Halloween.

As Amy Schumer impresses Instagram with her personal take on Stranger Things, Kelly Clarkson has taken to Facebook to channel her inner Sia.

Adopting an oversized white wig for the entire seven minute clip, the first American Idol winner used the social media site to livestream herself singing Chandelier to over 300,000 people this Friday.

The Stronger singer dedicated the unique performance to the 40-year-old Australian, who has previously been involved in writing Kelly’s songs Invincible and Let Your Tears Fall.

While Kelly's costume was pretty basic, the wig certainly offered the star and her fans a glimpse at life as Sia.

Brooklyn Beckham may only be 17-years-old, but the eldest child of David and Victoria is already covering Vogue.

Wearing a smart black tux with a dicky bow and fedora on the Italian version of the coveted fashion mag, the teen heartthrob proves he's almost as big a poser as his famous parents.

And the accompanying interview shows that not only is the former Arsenal player talented, he's also pretty down to earth.

He told the men's magazine: “My parents taught me to treat people how you want to be treated, and you know, never give up, have a good work ethic and always be humble.”

“When I played football there was a lot of people watching me and my every move, even if I made one mistake, I had to work harder than every single person and prove myself even more."

The star also revealed that his relationship with Kickass actress Chloe Moretz has left him feeling a little torn between London and LA.

He said: “It’s really hard for me to think of which city I prefer…It’s 50/50 because my girlfriend is in LA and all my friends I met at school, but London is my home, it’s where I grew up.”

Given that Brooklyn has yet to reach his 18th birthday, he still has plenty of time to decide what side of the pond he prefers.

Justin Bieber's Love Yourself describes a pretty messed up relationship and the pop star certainly doesn't hold back when describing his ex. 

Co-written by Ed Sheeran, the song paints a pretty horrendous picture of the anonymous girl in question and though the song's events could be totally true, it would be interesting to hear the perspective of the ex. 

So that's why YouTubers Yo Preston! and Kelly Kiara decided to cover the song with two sides of the story totally covered. 

Preston sings the first verse and chorus as Bieber sings it and then Kelly comes in with her own version of events that pretty much changes everything. 

"Baby you can go and f*ck yourself," goes Kelly's new version of the song and we are loving it. 

Listen to the amazing cover below:

Adele's return to the music scene has inspired many others to try their hand at her love song, Hello. It's no easy feat and only a few so far have stood out. 

But arguably the most impressive one yet is Demi Lovato's. She performed the hit song during her set at KISS FM's Fall Ball in Seattle and proved to the world that her voice is just as good as Adele's. 

With Demi's tour starting in June, we're hoping she sings more show-stoppers like this:

After gracing the front of the current edition, last night the Kardashian-Jenners were out in force to celebrate Cosmopolitan magazine's 50th birthday.

For the striking cover-shoot, the family had worn crisp white shirts – so understandably for their red-carpet appearance they also synched up in similarly complementary attire. 

Except that the youngest member of the mega-famous klan decided to go out on a limb and do her own thing… either that or she didn't get the all-black memo.

Standing out from the crowd in a pale short skirt and matching top, the 18-year-old teamed her outfit with white accessories.

Meanwhile, her elder siblings and mother looked stunning in striking dark evening-wear.

Khloe, 31, wore a velvet textured skirt with a thigh-high split, nude Louboutins and a plunging V-neck vest. Kourtney, 36, opted for a glamorous Balmain halter-neck jumpsuit with clinched-in waist detail.

And a seven-months pregnant Kim, 34, had on her signature body-con dress and oversized coat combo – complete with a €2,650 Balmain chocker

Momager Kris Jenner, 59, also looked amazing in a black jumpsuit and statement accessories – including OTT earrings. 

And while her sisters also had slicked-back hair worthy of any red-carpet, a more casual Kylie wore her lightened locks loose and long around her shoulders.

Noticeably absent was, of course, Kendall Jenner, 19, who is away modelling in London at the moment and was unable to jet back to California for the bash.

Cosmo Editor-In-Chief Joanna Coles was on hand to blow out the candles on a giant birthday cake, while the likes of Ashley Tisdale, Jessica SzohrStefanie Scott, Kelly Osborne, Sarah HylandLeona Lewis, and Cody Simpson were all also in attendance.

Amazingly for a family that has rarely been out of the spotlight since the launch of Keeping Up With The Kardashians eight years ago, the current Cosmo edition is the first time all six women have appeared together on the cover of a magazine.

Remember when Rebecca Black first came into our lives? Do you remember how one of the most commonly asked questions was: why, Rebecca?

Well, not too long ago people were asking themselves the same question (and many more) when one Montreal based woman became a viral sensation with her Jason Derulo cover.

Her cover of his single Other Side has over 10 million views on Facebook, and people are not finished watching yet.

After a little digging around the great big internet, IX Daily managed to track down the girl from the video, or should we say, the star of the video.

Her name is Octavie and she is 21-years old. She apparently disabled her Facebook account after she realised the video had gone viral in order to come up with a plan of action.

At the moment she works for Savini, which is the restaurant featured in the video. She explained that the video was never supposed to be released.

“It was not supposed to be on the internet because I knew it was bad. So when my friends start to text me saying that they saw my video I knew it was too late, and that it became viral.”

She said they her friends were supporting her throughout the experience. They were the ones responsible for editing the footage though.

She explained that while she came up with the video’s concept, she wasn’t expecting that finished product.

“All I can say is that it wasn't supposed to be as bad as it turned out to be. I don't know what my friends did with the editing, but it all came out so wrong.”

While she doesn’t seem entirely thrilled with the finished product, she is looking at the silver lining saying that despite the negative comments it has given her “incredible visibility”.

music video gone wrong

Who allowed this to happen???

Danish magazine, Cover, has been forced to apologise after a photo of a model they used caused uproar.

Cover, a fashion and lifestyle magazine, chose to acknowledge their mistake at using the photo in their magazine, with publisher Malene Malling saying: “Today is a sad day for me. On the Cover we have through the years printed in the tens of thousands of images, but the images of an all-too-thin model in Cover 103 shouldn’t be printed. I have not lived up to my responsibility as a publisher, woman and mother and am truly sorry.”

The publisher went on to say that the magazine continues to strive to show all aspects of womanhood: “On the Cover we have in all the years worked to show an expanded beauty ideal. Show that you can be beautiful in various ages and various sizes. We have always sought to work with healthy girls. Just two months ago we had plus-size model Diana Graham on the front of the Cover, so it is certainly a subject we focus on.”

Unfortunately, it’s not the first or last time a magazine will face controversy for situations like this. What are your thoughts on the photo?

This cover of Nicki Minaj’s 'Anaconda' is simply genius!

Described by the makers as a “vintage bluegrass hoedown” this is one version of the song we have no problem listening to!

The video is much safer for work than the original too which is great…!

This sounds pretty good, we reckon!

The Killers' frontman, Brandon Flowers, sang a little bit from Iggy Azalea's summer hit, Fancy, at this year's V Festival and, well, he killed it!

Then again, is there any song that man couldn't make sound amazing?! 

The interpretive dance by drummer, Ronnie Vennucci, is by far our favourite part though.

Lucy Hale’s dad is NOT impressed with her latest magazine cover.

The actress, who stars in hit TV show, Pretty Little Liars, features on the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine looking absolutely gorgeous – but it’s the articles beside her that her dad has taken fault with.

Lucy shared a screenshot of the text she got from her father when the issue came out which read: “Saw your pic on Cosmo, you look wonderful. Not to crazy about the articles beside your photo. Love u.”

The article beside Lucy’s photo read, in capital letters: “BEST. SEX. EVER.”

No wonder he wasn’t too impressed, typical dad!
