He’s been in the spotlight since the age of 14 with One Direction so Liam Payne certainly knows how to deal with fame and now he’s been giving advice to fellow superstar Justin Bieber.Ahead of the release of his debut solo album, Liam has been chatting to Rollercoaster Magazine about his life and revealed exactly what happened when he met up with the one and only Justin Bieber.

Liam revealed he understands the struggles Justin has faced in the media and believes he can relate with him. He said, “Obviously [Bieber]’s struggled a lot through the way the world looked upon him,” Liam says. “He’s a great guy; inside there’s a really good heart. I said,’ look, the difference between me and you is that I had four different boys going through the same thing to look to.”

Admitting he gave Justin his mobile number in case he ever needed a chat, Liam added, ” He didn’t have that. … I said to him, ‘listen, take my number and any time you want to have a chat, let me know because I’m here and I understand exactly what you’re going through and I understand your world.”
The 23-year-old also admitted he has a chaotic side and said he’s used to chaos. Speaking about Bieber he said, “He needs somebody like that and in that position … We all have this chaotic side to us. You know, they say that anger breeds passion. I think that’s the same with a lot of us, that we let things get chaotic very quickly. We’re used to chaos.”

Since One Direction announced their hiatus last year, Liam has been working hard on his solo music in the studio.

Back in July last year Liam revealed to fans he’d signed a solo deal with Capitol Records.

Taking to Instagram to share his news, Liam wrote, ‘I’m really happy to have signed to such a prestigious label as Capitol Records UK. Capitol Records has an amazing history stretching right back before even Frank Sinatra and I’m really looking forward to becoming part of their story. One Direction will always be my family, I’m now excited to show what I can do as a solo artist.’
It hasn’t yet been revealed when Liam’s solo music will drop, but we seriously can’t wait to hear it!

Ed Sheeran’s ÷ is the third fastest-selling UK album ever with ALL SIXTEEN songs in the singles top 20

There’s no stopping the phenomenon that is Ed Sheeran.

The singer-songwriter has utterly dominated both the singles and albums charts, breaking several records and – believe it or not – taking 16 positions in the top 20 singles of the week.

That’s right… every single song – 16 of them – from his new album ÷ made the top 20!

This is a first in chart history – no artist has come close to achieving it before.

The top five of the UK singles chart are all Sheeran in a ruthless clean sweep. ‘Shape of You’ is at number one, followed by ‘Galway Girl’, ‘Castle on the Hill’, ‘Perfect’ and ‘New Man’. This is, you guessed it, also another chart first.

Another record? Sheeran has become the artist with the most top ten singles from one album. Not only does he hold nine of the top ten this week, but ‘How Would You Feel (Paean)’ (which is number 11) previously charted inside the top ten – which means ÷ has a total of ten top ten singles.

The dominance doesn’t stop there.

In the UK albums chart, ÷ is top after shifting 672,000 copies, the fastest-selling by a male solo artist ever and the third fastest-selling overall in the first seven days – beaten only by Adele’s 25 (800,000) and Oasis’s Be Here Now (696,000).

In fact, Sheeran’s album has sold more than the rest of the top 500 combined.

“Wow, what a phenomenal week!” the singer said. “To every person who’s bought the album, thank you. I’m buzzing!”

Sheeran’s previous albums x and + are fourth and fifth respectively in this week’s albums chart.

Rag’n’Bone Man is second with Human, while Stormzy’s Gang Signs & Prayer is third.

Cheryl just ‘revealed’ her pregnancy in these latest photos

Cheryl and boyfriend Liam Payne have stayed tight lipped so far as to whether or not they were expecting a child together, however these latest pictures seem to all but confirm it.

The pair found love late last year after knowing each other for years having met on The X Factor back in 2008.

After many loved up snaps on social media, rumours began circulating that the pair were expecting as the ‘Fight For This Love’ singer had a glow and a small bump that many thought must surely be her first child.

However, Cheryl’s latest public ventures have seen her dressed in baggy clothing or carefully choreographed photos.

Cheryl and Liam attended the Quintessentially Foundation’s Annual Fayre of St James’ Church, which held a charity concert for her charity Cheryl’s Trust.

If the pair are indeed expecting then it will be a first for child for both of them, however they can lean on their former bandmates for parenting advice as Louis Tomlinson from One Direction is a Dad to 11-month-old Freddie and Kimberly Walsh is mum to son Bobby and expecting her second child with husband Justin Scott.

After being unlucky in love for so long we really hope that this is all the happiness Cheryl ever hoped for.

Hollyoaks have recreated Beyoncé’s baby photo and it’s hilarious

The comments didn’t end there, a user called @christina_mcdaid said, ‘hahahaha i love Hollyoaks’.

While the snap is gaining lots of likes, it’s millions behind Queen B’s photo. The singer broke an Instagram record last night by receiving the most likes in a photo EVER!!!


After just one hour of Beyoncé sharing her news, the photo had 2.43 million likes and 166,000 comments. The photo now has a massive 8,123,883 likes! (At the time this article was published).

Which do you prefer? Hollyoaks or Beyonce? 😂
