Lady GaGa is set to appear on the cover of the world’s biggest magazine. Art magazine Visionaire’s Larger Than Life issue will be an astounding five ft by seven ft, with Gaga featuring on both its front and back covers. The standard edition goes for $375 but the deluxe huge edition will run you a shocking $1500.

JLS star Aston Merrygold says his biggest pop star problem is trying to avoid the romantic advances of girls without making them cry. I have to fight back the tears myself when I hear anything by them! Oh, and along with the rest of the band they are reportedly being lined-up to record the official London 2012 Olympics song.

Just like the Games, you can download it next year and then spend the next 20 years handing over the money for it.

Coldplay say they came-up with the name Mylo Xyloto for their latest album so that people wouldn’t have any preconceptions about it.

That and the ability to actually ask for it by name when they go to buy it. Having said that, it’s classic Coldplay and does exactly what it says on the tin.

I was interested to hear that half of shoppers have become so irritated by Muzak (piped music) in stores that they have walked out of the shop. A quick bit of advice, if you’re in HMV, that’s probably not Muzak you’re hearing. It’s the latest album by Air!

Just over a week to go until Wave 105 Live at the BIC and the chance to see a varied list of Wave 105 favourites from The Feeling to Erasure. Also on the bill is last year’s X Factor runner up Rebecca Ferguson. Her debut album is out on December 5 with the first single from it, Nothing’s Real But Love, out the week before. That track has been co-written with Eg White.

He’s responsible for writing Leave Right Now for Will Young as well as working with acts such as Duffy, Adele, James Morrison and Joss Stone.

Other acts you can see include last year’s X Factor winner Matt Cardle, The Pierces, The Overtones and the voice of Savage Garden, Darren Hayes. Along with his solo stuff he has sold over 20 million albums –that’s some pedigree! Find out more at
