Track of the week Busted- WhatYou’reOn

For­get the sad­ness you had when Char­lie Bus ted re­fused to join McFly and Busted su­per group McBusted, for al­lis now right again in the world of pop. Busted have re formed with all mem­bers in­tact, and they’ re off with a bang.

What You’re On is sur­pris­ingly funky–more like The 1975 than 5 SOS( who are Bus ted’ s suc­ces­sor sin away). Will fol­low-0 up tracks con­tinue in this vein? Or is it abuzz-sin­glet easer? Only time can tell, but we are allin.

Hero of the week is Justin Tim­ber lake( right ), who ad­mit­ted to Gra­ham Nor­ton that he didn’t really know what Euro vi­sion was when he signed up to per­form. Justin ex­plained “I did( know what it­was), but not be­fore I said yes to it. Then, when It old peo­ple I was do­ing it they would re­spond with, ‘Oh, why are you do­ing that show ?’ But, he went on :” it was a lot of fun.” We’ ve all been there, haven’t we.

Niall Ho­ran is on the fence about a 1 re­union. dur­ing an in­ter­view with Sir­ius X M. He ex­plains :“I don’ t know what hap­pened there, but yeah, forthe fore­see­able, you know, we’re just tak­ing a break and kind of do­ing our own thing. I def­i­nitely won’ t rule that out be­cause it’ s the best thing that One Di­rec­tion has al­lowed us to do things like this, and I def­i­nitely won’ t rule it out. Our lives wouldn’ t be the same .”

Zero of the week is dat­ing, ac­cord­ing to Brit­ney. She told Jonathan Ross :“I have a friend at home and he ran­domly sets me up with peo­ple on blind dates, it’s just awk­ward. It’s tricky. There have been two dates which have been cool but other than that it’s toomuch.

“There was this one guy and he looked like a lizard. I was so scared, I was like‘ Holy shit, he looks just like a lizard!’. It was very bad, I left im­me­di­ately. I called my friend, I was so mad, I was very an­gry.”
