He sent his fans into meltdown in April when he tweeted about retiring, but now, Conor McGregor has finally opened up.

"I was in Iceland, chilling. I sent it on my phone," he said on The MMA Hour.

"Straight onto Twitter. Boom, boom, boom. 'I'm outta here, thanks for the cheese, catch ya's all later. See ya!' Then off to the gym," he recounted.

"Then, I came back from the gym and, all of a sudden, the thing is f*cking everywhere.

"That was another crazy experience. This life is a rollercoaster."

However, he also admitted that he could very well have retired that day, but decided to relax with a drink instead.

"If it came down to it I would have [retired] but good luck trying to keep an Irishman away from a fight.

“That night, I had a f*cking drink, went out. I was like ‘f*ck everybody, I am out of here’.”



Avicii has today announced that he is retiring from touring in an open letter he posted to his fans on his website.

The DJ had many number one hits, including I Could Be The One and Levels, but has decided to stop touring in order to focus on his other interests.

The Swedish-born producer said: "My path has been filled with success but it hasn't come without its bumps.

"I've become an adult while growing as an artist, I've come to know myself better and realise that there's so much I want to do with my life.”

He promised his fans that he will continue to produce music and added "never say never," giving fans hope he might tour again some day. 


Fans of The Graham Norton Show will be devastated to hear that its host, Graham Norton is considering retiring in the not so distant future.

The 52-year-old Cork native admitted that he wants to retire well before he turns 60. Speaking to his Radio 2 co-presenter Maria McErlane, Graham explained that, “You want to get out when people are still watching your show.”

“The thing nobody wants to do is the inching backwards, where you are going, ‘Yes the cast of TOWIE can come on.’ I’m not jumping tomorrow but it is in my head.”

The former Father Ted star has had his own chat show for 18 years. The BBC show has ran since 2007. His popular couch has sat many of the world’s biggest stars, from Robert de Niro, to Russel Crowe and Sandra Bullock.

He explains how he wouldn’t consider continuing the show if he could no longer get the best guests, which he says, is unfortunately inevitable at some point. 

“When it comes to chat show wars, yes you always try and bag the biggest guests and at the moment we do seem to be having a good run of it. But these things go in cycles. That will turn and change.”

From Mark Wahlberg caressing Graham’s chest, to the sexy trio of Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Hugh Jackman dancing to Blurred Lines and of course, the infamous red chair, this is one show that we would be devastated to say goodbye to.
