Clearly Abigail Breslin’s stalker anthem hasn’t frightened Michael Clifford off dating for life (hooray!!!) as he has been flirting with ultimate girl crush Taylor Swift.
It all started off quite innocently with Michael tweeting his adoration for Tay’s chart smash “Shake It Off”;
Taylor then responded with;
Damn that girl has some impeccable etiquette skills.
Mikey clearly bursting with excitement (wow…that sounds dirty) tweeted:
This sent Taylor into a twitter emoji frenzy normally reserved for 15 year old girls:
And for the grand finale of ‘Michael Gordon Clifford ‘s guide to courting’ he came back with:
Guys before you start the epic romance of Cliffty you might want to run it past a certain one directioner.
5SOS showcase their “fingering” skills
5SOS hijacked the E! Mani Cam (yes that’s really thing) and well did some naughty gestures, tut tut boys!!!

Iggy Azalea’s derrière
Iggy Azalea won not only her first AMA for Best Rap/Hip Hop Album but her first award ever!!! However Iggy ‘s real win of the night was for best booty, her raunchy performance with J-Lo had us all hot under the collar (seriously Iggy I was just getting over the “Black Widow” video and now this…..all I can say is yowzah).
Charli XCX grunge-tastic performance
Injecting some rock and roll spirit into the AMAs was pop’s new darling Charli XCX, looking like she had been transported onto the set of “Heathers”, the 22 year old sang a mash up of “Boom, Clap” and “Break The Rules” before ending with a bang literally as she trashed the stage. Pop has officially turned goth. I love it!!!
Taylor Swift proves why she is the ultimate girl crush
Taylor Swift brought her array of bunny boiler facial expressions with her as she opened the show with “Blank Space” but it was her off stage antics that made as want to be Swifty’s best friend even more from weeping at BFF Selena Gomez’s beautiful rendition of “The Heart Wants What It Wants” to pulling some serious shapes to Jessie J and Lorde.

Yes ladies and gentlemen you did read that right.
Online streaming is nothing new to the music industry but the discussion was brought back into the news this week when Taylor Swift pulled her entire back catalogue as well as her new “1989” album from Spotify (and might I add that Swifty is still managing to rack up number ones worldwide).
Now Blink 182 ‘s Tom DeLonge has waded into the ‘streaming debate’ with maybe the most epic thing to ever be uttered by a human being.
Speaking to “Faster Louder” the Angels and Airwaves singer said:
“I tell people condoning streaming is like condoning the Chinese that are killing elephants for their tusks and carving ivory statues. It’s cool to put on your shelf but if you really think about what you’re doing it sucks. Streaming music is doing the same thing to artists – might not be killing ’em but it’s killing the industry. It might be cool for you as somebody that likes music but you’re not really thinking about the effect it has. We’ve got to value our art, you know?”
Streaming music is driving downloading into extinction but is the answer really artists shunning online streaming services or should the music industry simply adapt to the times.
I personally am part of the dying breed that still purchases their music in a physical format so maybe I’m a little bias but I truly believe that music enriches every individuals’ life, how could that not be worth paying for…..oh and maybe try not buying an elephant tusk as a Christmas present this year.
Forget 1989, 2014 is shaping up to be Taylor Swift’s year.
The 24 year old had her most high profile break up this year when she parted ways with the country roots that made her a household name but Taylor’s dramatic new sound has just made chart history in the US.
“Blank Space” the latest single to be lifted from Taylor’s “1989” album has knocked “Shake It Off” from the number one spot after a four week run making her the first female in the history of the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart to essentially succeed herself.
And with “1989” still dominating the album chart world wide Taylor certainly has cause to celebrate.
