Get ready to be glued to your earphones, ladies, because our favourite online store, PrettyLittleThing has announced a brand new podcast.

Introducing PLT: Behind Closed Doors is currently sitting at number one on the podcast charts, and for a good reason.

The brand have described the audio as, "A podcast that is true to its name. A way to connect to our audience in a different way with no subject off limits."

The podcast is essentially a slumber party with the gals, where gossip is the sauce served ALL NIGHT LONG, with some healthy female bonding to boot.

To kick off 2019, the crew are hanging out with their gorgeous girls who inspire them daily. It's time to get to know them a lot better, and luckily they're sharing the footage with their audiences and PLT fans globally.

From stories the models and ambassadors have never shared before, to their everyday routines; it's time to really get into the minds of you favourites and take down the barriers of social media. Real talk.

The nine-part mega series will have you blaring the volume and eagerly awaiting the next episode. On Tuesday 22 of January, the debut podcast featured the absolute BABE that is Maya Jama.

Jama is a face of PLT, a TV personality, fashionista and radio presenter herself, giving us purely good vibes. Describing the podcast in her own words, Maya said;

“So excited for PLT to be stepping into the podcast world with Behind Closed Doors. They flipped the tables and put me in the hot seat. Listen in to hear me talk life, face masks and dealing with stalkers."

Stalkers? This we HAVE to hear.

Behind Closed Doors is the latest gift that keeps on giving. PLT Brand Ambassador Megan Barton Hanson will be breaking boundaries, speaking on subjects personal to her;

“Stripper heels are not the easiest to walk in”, she reveals. “I know there has been a lot of talk about my previous profession, so it feels good to set the record straight and open up about my past with PLT in a fun and comfortable environment.”

It's always fabulous to hear women opening up and getting candid about their everyday lives. We can't wait to hear even more from the clothing brand, check out the first episode for some scandal and slumber party vibes.

Listen to the new podcast on iTunesSpotify & Acast, but leave plenty of time, because you'll be pure BINGEING it.


No matter what you hear, you do not owe iTunes money! Gardaí are warning the public of an ongoing iTunes scam.

There have been reports of scammers claiming to be an iTunes employee contacting people and requesting payment for money they claim is owed.

The scammers insist the victim buy an iTunes gift card as payment and ask for the 16 digit gift card number.

The anonymous cons recently tried to trick a business in Cork into sending them money. A request was made via email, sent by a person claiming to be the Manager of the company.

The message asked a staff member to purchase €2,000 of iTunes gift cards and send on the voucher numbers, but thankfully the employee contacted their Manager by phone to verify the request, suspicious of the sender's intent.

Gardaí say to be cautious of the ongoing scam and watch out for any phone calls, voicemails or emails from scammers claiming to be a representative of an organisation.

They may claim that you owe money and insist on immediate payment by a gift card. In some cases, victims are told they are facing criminal charges.

The scammer may know some information about you, so be sure not to trust them just because they use your name or have other personal details.

Detective Superintendent Healy warned: "We fear that this is an emerging scam and would urge people to be vigilant. The retailers of such cards should also be vigilant.

“Please remember, If you are NOT purchasing an item from the iTunes Store, App Store, iBooks Store, or an Apple Music membership, do not make a payment with iTunes Gift Cards.

“There's no other instance in which you'll be asked to make a payment with an iTunes Gift Card. If you fear you have been a victim of this scam or any other scam for that matter, please pick up the phone and call Gardaí”.

The iTunes gift card scam is just one of many that have recently surfaced in Ireland and the public is advised to continue to exercise extreme caution when answering phone calls.

Always say "NO” to unsolicited callers or texters seeking personal information about you, and never use the contact details supplied to you by the caller or texter.

Personal information includes your name, address, date of birth, family details, bank account numbers, PIN, Passwords.

If you think you are being scammed, call your local garda station immediately.


Ah, the sweet, sweet sound of silence.

There are certain occasions in the life that call for the complete absence of noise, and the moment you plug your phone into your car's aux cord is most definitely one of them.

There is nothing more annoying than gearing yourself up you to listen to the song that's been stuck in your head all day only to be met with the blaring sounds of whatever is first in your music library.

Well, one Twitter user has finally found a solution to this pesky little issue, and it's absolutely genius.

Samir Mezrahi has released a ten-minute-long track consisting of nothing but pure uninterrupted silence, designed specifically for anyone who is fed up with listening to Calvin Harris' Acceptable in the 80's every time they get in the car.

What's more, the song is actually climbing its way up the US iTunes chart. Currently placing at no. 30, Silence (feat. Khalid) sits just one spot behind Ed Sheeran's Shape of You.

And it looks like Justin Bieber better watch out, because Samir is after that number one spot. 

But really, how funny would it be if that actually happened? 



Wowsers. We probably didn't need confirmation that you just don't mess with Taylor Swift – but if we did, that's now happened.

And it's happened in SPECTACULAR fashion. Here's the back-story:

Earlier this evening, former One Directioner Zayn Malik shared a now deleted tweet from the @FemaleTexts account with his 15.4m followers.

The message (ouch) negatively compares one Taylor Swift to fellow pop star, Miley Cyrus, and includes a screenshot of an interview with TIME.

In the interview, Ms Swift encourages her fans to download her music from iTunes now that she's withdrawn from Spotify

In contrast, Ms Cyrus's quote explains that as she's already “made [her] money” she doesn’t care if “no one buys [her] album.” Then there's a description of Cyrus’s Happy Hippie Foundation, which benefits LGBT youth.

The tweet concludes: “The difference is astounding.”

Right or wrong, the sentiment is clear: multi-millionaire Taylor Swift, 25, is intent on making LOTS more money for herself – while Miley Cyrus, 22, is more concerned with using her celebrity and fortune to help others.

Understandably, it is an accusation that Tay-Tay's boyfriend wasn't about to take lying down.

"You've made your money?" he began addressing Mr Malik via the social-networking site. "Cool… fuck the 99% of musicians who depend on these services to survive right? Yeah fuck em."

A series of tweets ensued, including the line: "There's some poor fucker in a basement making your new favorite record trying to survive."

Zayn then fought back: "Ha you just made an absolute fool of yourself mate," he began, adding: "I suggest you calm your knickers before them dentures fall out."

The 22-year-old concluded with: "Oh and I write my own shit too dickhead."

Taylor herself has yet to get involved – although 31-year-old Calvin did appear to offer an olive branch of sorts to his rival in the end.

For now, Mr Malik has bowed out of the contest: he's giving the Scottish DJ the silent treatment.

Whatever next… Perrie Edwards throwing in her tuppence worth? Well, Little Mix did just appear on stage with Taylor in California.

Yup, it seems lines have been drawn.
