One Direction Already Plotting Tracks For Sophomore Album
Niall Horan tells MTV News they’ve already written one ‘absolutely cracking song’ for the follow-up to Up All Night.
As One Direction close out the chapter on their U.S. tour this weekend, the guys are already thinking about their next project, their sophomore album release.

They dropped their chart-topping, record-breaking debut, Up All Night, abroad in November 2011 before launching their U.S. invasion with the album back in March. And now, according to Niall Horan, they’ve already been kicking around tracks for their next release.

“We’ve been recording already, actually,” Horan shared with MTV News. “When we came back from Australia, we had a couple weeks off and then we went straight into the studio to get cracking on the next album.

“We wrote an absolutely cracking song that we’re all kind of very excited about. … And then last week we were in L.A. and we had five days off the tour to record in L.A. so we recorded more there,” Horan said, adding that they intend to spend all of July and August “getting the album done.”

Little Mix star’s brother spared jail after judge heard he dealt cocaine to pay off drug dealers threatening to kidnap the X Factor star
Little Mix starlet Jesy Nelson was today named at the centre of a kidnap plot as her brother was spared jail for peddling cocaine for dealers who had threatened her.

Jesy’s older brother Jonathan Nelson was in December caught red-handed selling the Class A drug to an undercover reporter for a national newspaper at a carpark in Hornchurch, Essex.

As he appeared at Southend Crown Court for sentencing today he sensationally claimed he had only agreed to sell cocaine after threats were made to his sister.

Check her out! Alexandra Burke takes to the stage at T4 On The Beach in a less than stylish red and white two-piece
Having just touched down from her recent break away in Miami Alexandra Burke wasted no time getting back to work.

The 23-year-old singer took to Weston to put on an energetic showing at this year’s T4 On The Beach.

An X Factor reject who allegedly screamed abuse at the judges during Cardiff auditions has claimed she was the victim of an elaborate set-up designed to paint her as a ‘girl with a bad attitude’

Zoe Alexander, a Pink tribute act, is alleged to have used the C-word, pushed a female producer in the face and flung her microphone on the floor when she was told she was not good enough.

But the 22-year-old accused bosses of the ITV1 show of deliberately painting her as a sour loser during Monday’s round of pre-recorded auditions in Cardiff and added they told her what to sing.
