While some may claim Heather was simply attracted to Paul's wealth and his place in history as a member the greatest rock band ever, the former model was adamant her feelings were sincere.

Sir Paul McCartney and Heather Mills

(2000 — 2006)

The love affair between Sir Paul and Lady Linda McCartney was one of the greatest romances in rock history. The love affair between Sir Paul and Heather Mills was not.

Apart from Ringo's long running marriage to Bond girl Barbara Bach, the Beatles never did well with model relationships. In the '70s George Harrison lost model Patti Boyd to Eric Clapton while in the 2000s Paul McCartney lost a reported $48 million and a Georgian mansion thanks to his union with a model. Some people never learn.

What did they see in each other?
While some may claim Heather was simply attracted to Paul's wealth and his place in history as a member the greatest rock band ever, the former model was adamant her feelings were sincere, "I fell in love for the right reason. I fell in love unconditionally."

Either way she should have sat down and had a big long talk to Yoko about being the unpopular spouse. Mills said she felt she would prefer to lose all her limbs rather than be, "vilified for doing nothing but falling in love with an icon."

Was it true love?
No, unfortunately the relationship between them fell apart. Luckily there was a silver lining to the dark cloud that became their relationship — at least for the gossip mags anyway: the bitter divorce, and ensuring celebrity smackdown involved claims of abuse and racy revelations about Mills' past as a nude model.

Most recently Mills is reported to have said she feels the couple's daughter could bring them back together. As of this point in time this claim has not been tested by reality.

Sir Paul has recently been seen in the company of Billy Joel's ex-main squeeze, Christie Brinkley. While the tabloids claim a relationship, according to Billy McCartney and Brinkley are 'just old friends.'

Drugs, absent Zayn and awkward answers: Is this the worst One Direction interview ever? MusicFIX Blog by Adam Bub Nov 18 2014 12:28PM

We'll file this one under "too awkward for words".

One Direction went on the US Today show as a foursome, claiming bandmate Zayn Malik was too sick to fly to the US for their new album promo tour.

Host Matt Lauer shot straight from the hip and asked if Zayn's absence had anything to do with those persistent drug abuse rumours doing the rounds.

Watch as Liam Payne gives the most unconvincing answer ever while the rest of the boys squirm in their seats. It's a car-crash moment if there ever was one.

Zayn has since told The Sun: "I'm really angry and upset by what was said. I was really ill at the weekend, that's why I couldn't fly to America."

The 21-year-old said he will join the boys to promote their new album Four when he's "fit enough". Yikes! We hope fans aren't left waiting forever...

Back in May, Zayn and bandmate Louis Tomlinson were caught on video allegedly rolling and smoking a joint in a car during their 2014 stadium tour.

Just so you know, the Twitter hashtag "#GetWellSoonZayn" is trending worldwide, if you want to share your wishes (or conspiracy theories).

The S Club 7 reunion happened... go on, you know you want to watch MusicFIX Blog by Adam Bub Nov 16 2014 4:57PM

It's the moment we've waited 12 years to see: S Club 7 have finally reunited.

The late '90s/early '00s British pop group brought their S Club party back for the BBC Children in Need concert in London on Friday night. They packed a four-song medley into five minutes, featuring their hits 'Reach', 'Bring It All Back', 'Don't Stop Movin'' and of course, 'S Club Party'.

Alright, we know you're secretly singing along to at least one of those pop classics right now. Watch above!

All decked out in sparkles and neon raver gear (pink-haired Hannah Spearitt and shiny-short-wearing Tina Barrett, we're looking at you), S Club seemed to be having the time of their lives back on stage.

While many fans were excited to see their fave super-group reunite, some tweeted their frustrations about the performance.

"I'm slightly unnerved that Rachel now seems to be a slightly better live singer than Jo," one fan wrote.

"One of the bad things about ageing is when people younger than you start looking old. #SClub7Reunion," another observed.

"They've had a decade to practice how to dance and mime at the same time. Obviously not been practising hard enough #SClub7Reunion," tweeted another fan.

But on the whole, this tweet captured the fan reaction best: "This is simultaneously the best and worst thing I've ever seen #SClub7Reunion."

A 2015 tour is rumoured to be in the works. Start campaigning for them to come to Oz now.
