Typical internet. As soon as a celebrity break-up happens, it just HAS to go and blame someone for the split, and assume an affair is taking place while they're at it.

Lady Gaga and her fiancé Christian Carino have officially called off their engagement about five minutes ago (sob), and poor Bradley Cooper is taking some serious heat for it.

A Star Is Born fans are convinced that the pair are secretly in love, despite the fact that Bradley has been dating Irina Shayk since 2016, and has a child with her.

 We're absolutely devastated for Gaga, but her fans have been bombarding Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk's Instagram accounts for some strange reason.

The speculation that the Shallow singers are in love has increased since they performed an emotional duet at her Las Vegas Enigma show.

Lady Gaga's rep confirmed her break-up to People, and another source told them;

"It just didn’t work out. Relationships sometimes end. There's no dramatic story." See? No. Dramatic. Story. Did the rumours stop there online? Hell no.

The fans beg to differ; "I seriously hope Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are having an affair, not kidding," said one fan. Their chemistry in the award-winning film is palpable, but it's called ACTING, folks.

Fans have flooded Irina's Instagram with comments telling her to "let Bradley be with Lady Gaga", and "Stop letting Gaga near your man, it's embarrassing." Good lord… harsh much?

The memes, the comments, the MARRIAGE insinuations? We can't cope with the internet, stop the car we want to get out.

The two were in happy relationships when the movie came out and hit cinemas, yet fans assume their on-set acting is the reason for Gaga's break up MONTHS later.

"I have two words: Bradley. Cooper." We have two words: Internet. Cancelled.

We acknowledge that Bradley and Lady Gaga have a stunning relationship, but men and women can actually be just that; friends. Co-workers. Creative talents on the same set pretending to be lovers for a screen and entertainment purpose.

Please locate your chill people, and leave poor Irina Shayk out of this. Gaga has enough on her shoulders with a break-up, in private.

We just want them both to be happy…*weeps*

Emotional tributes and forms of creative protest have been occurring worldwide for the 17-year-old woman involved in this week's Cork rape trial, which saw a female barrister use the young woman's underwear as evidence against her.

According to the barrister, the woman's lace thong proved that she was 'open to meeting someone and being with someone', leading to the organisation of mass rallies in support of the victim.

The 27-year-old man accused of raping her in an alleyway was acquitted of rape following barrister's Elizabeth O'Connell's finishing statements.

Among the tributes to the young woman is a hauntingly beautiful rendition of a song, penned by a young woman of similar age to the girl involved:

The video, which was shared on Twitter by her brother John Gaughan, has been steadily gaining in views since it was uploaded.

The lyrics echo the sentiments of outraged women all over the country, who are refusing to accept that underwear can play a part in consent and can also be used as evidence in a court of law.

"What are you wearing underneath? Isn't for you to see unless I want that to be, is that clear?"

"No please, can you stop? That should be enough for you to f*cking wise up, is that clear?"

"Consent is what we're told, at 17-years-old, is what we wear underneath our clothes. Victims become accused of the crime they didn't do, responsibility is abused."

"We shouldn't have to fear for this to happen to us or someone that we love, is that clear?"

"Something has to change with the mindset of today, it's still not clear."

Anger has spread around Ireland as well as in other countries around the world as a result of the latest controversial rape trial.

ROSA and Ruth Coppinger TD have both requested that strikes occur as a form of protest against the handling of sexual violence cases as well as consent and Irish sex education on International Women's Day.

A review of the handling of sexual assault cases in Northern Ireland been released today, stating that members of the public be excluded from such trials following the high profile Belfast case.

The report, written by retired judge John Gillen and states that access to trials involving serious sexual offences should be confined to close family members of the complainant, the defendant as well the media. 

In the Republic of Ireland system, rape trials are already closed to the public. 

It remains to be seen if any positive consequences will occur as a result of the protests, we hope improvements can be made for the sake of sexual assault and rape victims in Ireland.

Okay, so most of us went through an emo phase when we were in our early teens.

Remember all the studded belts and stripy arm warmers mixed in with the scent of Impulse Tease and teenage angst? Yeah, that was us. 

So when we saw this emo parody of Donald Trump's speeches, we couldn't help but laugh. 

The song reminds us of all our favourite emo songs from the noughties, and it completely suits Trump and his rhetoric. 

With classic Trump lines like "Ive' never said I'm a perfect person, or pretended to be someone that I'm not," and "the American dream is dead, we are dying dying dying," the melodramatic words of the speeches perfectly suits the melancholic tone of the song. 

P!ATD and BMTH would be proud. 

Oh, and while we have you; don't forget to have your say in the inaugural SHEmazing Awards this May! It's time to vote, and you can do it right here!

And here it is ladies, the song we've ALL been waiting for since her break-up with Calvin Harris… and then again with Tom Hiddleston.

It's Taylor Swift's new break-up song. And let's face it, we all wanted this to happen to see what really went down in her relationships.

Tay's new song is called Better Man and the lyrics are very Swifty indeed.

The song tells the tale of a jealous ex-boyfriend (cough, *Calvin*, cough) and it goes along the lines of, "I know I'm probably better off on my own / Than loving a man who didn't know what he had when he had it / And I see the permanent damage you did to me / Never again, I just wish I could forget when it was magic.

"I gave you my best and we both know you can't say that/ We might still be in love, if you were a better man."

However, the track isn't for her new album and was written for country band Little Big Town.

Tay took to Instagram to tell her fans: "Feeling really honored that a band I've loved for so many years decided to record this song I wrote. Love you guys."

It looks like Perrie Edwards just wants to let it all out!

Perrie was engaged to the former One Direction star for years – until their split in August 2015 – and now, that gal wants to sing about it.

According to The Sun, the blonde beauty has been in the studio non-stop and Little Mix want their new album to be about dealing with love and heartbreak.

Jesy Nelson told the paper: "I think it’s always easier to write about your experiences through music because more people can relate to them anyway.

“It is a lot more mature, this album. There’s a lot of things that have been said that perhaps nobody has heard yet, if you know what I mean.”

Jesy also said that the band's fans will know what the songs are about.

"I think it's pretty obvious," she said. "I think all the songs are very relatable to girls, and our fan base in general."

Since his megahit debut solo single – Pillowtalk – was released in February, fans just can't get enough of Zayn Malik. 

So it was with great surprise that we noticed that the English singer-songwriter's vocals can recently be heard on another KILLER track – because not enough people are talking about just how good it is. 

Hidden away on the soundtrack to Netflix original series The Get Down, Zayn's oh-so amazing voice can be heard on You Can't Hide / You Can't Hide From Yourself.

The song, which quietly emerged on Thursday, is a remix of the classic track by Teddy Pendergrass and this newly-updated version involves Mr Malik teaming up with Grandmaster Flash.

Suffice to say, we are ALL OVER the resulting tune.

The Get Down is the hotly anticipated new Baz Luhrmann drama about the birth of hip-hop in 1970s New York – and it's available to view on Netflix now. 

Meanwhile, check out the Zayn song on iTunes here.

She let it all out yesterday, revealing her interview with OK! mag and telling everybody about how her new baby already looks like Jeremy.

But now, she's wrote a song about it.

In the interview with OK!, Steph said: "I've recorded one about him so far. I've never been good at explaining my emotions so I find it easier to write lyrics about how I'm feeling.

"During my lowest points, when I couldn't stop crying, I would sit with a pen and paper and write."

It seems like the reality star will have a lot on her plate in 2017.

"I've got a great TV job coming up, but I'm not allowed to reveal what it is yet. I've also been back in the studio working on some songs, which I'm hoping to release soon.

"I'm also in talks to bring out my autobiography, so I've got a lot on my plate for 2017, as well as being a mum!"

She might have him well beaten in the rebound stakes, but Calvin Harris seems to have smashed Taylor Swift’s chances of being the first ex to make music about their famous split.

According to TMZ, the Scottish DJ is working on a new track called Ole which is supposedly written from the perspective of TayTay’s new love Tom Hiddleston.

And if the lyrics are anything to go by, it seems Calvin is pretty convinced that TayTom were getting together before he and the Bad Blood singer officially ended their 15 month romance.

The song says: "I see online that you begun to be a good girl and take trips with your boyfriend.  Being attentive, continue to pretend."

"You've hidden my name in your phone so you can call me to tell me you've been going through hell.  Left him alone and you booked in a hotel."

And in a possible reference to Tom’s role as Loki in Thor: "Low key you won't tell none of your friends about me."

TMZ’s sources say the Summer hitmaker has no bad feelings towards Tom as he believes the actor has been mesmerised by Taylor.

Although it has yet to be revealed when exactly the track will be released, it is said John Newman will be its featured singer as he and Calvin were spotted in Mexico together last week where the song’s video was shot.

The news comes almost two weeks after Calvin swayed from his original statement that his split with Taylor was filled with love and respect by telling an Instagram follower that his ex “controlled the media” and that he “had no idea what was going on”.

We wonder how easy it’ll be for Taylor to shake this one off.

It was the movie franchise that captured our heart, minds – AND nurtured our pre-teen and teen musical aspirations. 

But almost ten years after the release of the first High School Musical, the song which was the movie's very cornerstone – Breaking Free – has been largely forgotten by protagonist Zac Efron.

The actor famously played Troy Bolton opposite Vanessa Hudgens – who played Gabriella Montez – in the hugely successful franchise.

 

But while promoting his latest release, We Are Your Friends, alongside co-star Emily Ratajkowski and director Max Joseph, 27-year-old Zac had an interview with glossy magazine Cosmoploitan.

And during the course of the segment, he found himself at a loss when asked to identify Breaking Free.

"That's High School Musical. Oh wait… the name of the song?" he says lifting his hands to his face in thought. "The pressure's on – Soarin', Flying, is it?" 

"No! Come on, Zac," the interviewer cries out in disgust. 

"Take A Chance?" the actor next offers, before realising: "Breaking Free!" 

Amid much jeering from Emily and Max, Mr Efron protests: "There's a lot – there's three movies of songs!" 

Of course, in contrast, every self-respecting Disney fan can remember and recite the entire HSM soundtrack instantly.

We're going to assume this was all a momentary indiscretion, so we'll forgive Zac this one time.

We’ve all grown up with Eminem’s outlandish and controversial lyrics – but this is pretty disgraceful.

The rapper released a snippet of his new song Vegas and has left people reeling with lyrics like: “So what’s it gon’ be? Put that s*** away Iggy. You don’t wanna blow that rape whistle on me. Sceam! I love it. ‘Fore I get lost with the gettin’ off.”

We’re sure Iggy is equally as disgusted by Eminem’s new lyrics, given that they seem to insinuate her rape.

Eminem is the second rapper to threaten Iggy, after Snoop Dogg said he would “check” her if her boyfriend didn’t first and calling her a c***.

It sounds as if certain musicians are obviously threatened by Iggy’s success and we hope she doesn’t let their disgusting comments get to her.

People are LOVING Kelly Clarkson’s cover of Shake It Off – especially Taylor Swift!

Taylor tweeted her approval of Kelly’s cover, saying it was a perfect way to mark 26 hours to her album release (which happened today).

The singer didn’t just do a regular version of the song however, she changed it and made it her own. 

While we’re not convinced it’s better than Taylor’s version, it has to be said it’s damn good!

The video has amassed over one million views on YouTube since Taylor's shout out on Saturday evening.

There is trouble for Taylor Swift today following the reveal of her brand new music video for Shake It Off.

 

Rapper with Odd Future, Earl Sweatshirt, tweeted his disapproval of the video, saying: “haven’t watched the taylor swift video and I don’t need to watch it to tell you that it’s inherently offensive and ultimately harmful … perpetuating black stereotypes to the same demographic as white girls who hide their prejudice by proclaiming their love of the culture … for instance, those of you who are afraid of black people but love that in 2014 it’s ok for you to be trill or twerk or say n****.”

Taylor isn’t the first star to be accused of cultural appropriation as Katy Perry recently had to speak out about her dancers dressed as mummies with big booties in her Prismatic Tour: “Those girls aren’t African-American. But it’s actually a representation of our culture wanting to be plastic, and that’s why there’s bandages and it’s mummies.”

Lily Allen was accused of similar misuse of racial stereotypes in her video for Hard Out Here.

Taylor’s new video has been a huge success following its release last night, with over 4 million views on You Tube in less than 24 hours.
