[HWW]
Little Birdy have revealed that their third album will take the name Confetti and have released an exclusive download to celebrate. The band recorded the music over a 12-month period and self-produced the album, which is scheduled for release in May, with the assistance of engineer Steven Schram.

Katy Steele describes the inspiration behind the title: "'Confetti' just fell out of my mouth, the word literally just came out of nowhere". It is not known whether or not she had recently attended a wedding. The opening track from the album Brother is available to download from the Little Birdy website for a limited time, with the first single expected in February.

Watch: Iggy Azalea fights back tears winning 'first award in my entire life' at AMAs MusicFIX Blog by Adam Bub Nov 24 2014 1:39PM

Australian rapper Iggy Azalea had an emotional moment on stage at the 2014 American Music Awards at LA's Nokia Theatre, winning her first award ever for Favourite Hip-Hop Album for The New Classic. We love it when an Aussie wins at an American awards show!

The 24-year-old couldn't hold back the tears while accepting the award, saying it was "the first award I've won in my entire life" and acknowledging fellow nominees Eminem and Drake. Watch the moment above… it makes us just a little teary too.

Okay, so her Australian accent is sounding a lot more American these days, but we still think Iggy's pretty darn fancy.

After she'd won the award, hip-hop fans flooded Twitter with anti-Iggy comments, with one fan declaring it "the final nail in the coffin of what was and what will ever be, the art of music." Uhh, haters gonna hate…

Iggy, who leads the pack with six nominations, is set to perform her risqué tune with Jennifer Lopez, 'Booty'. Earlier in the night she performed her hit 'Fancy'.

Let's hope she keeps up her winning streak...

Is Beyoncé faking her booty in new music video? Twitter says yes. MusicFIX Blog by Claire Knight Nov 24 2014 10:27AM After releasing a fresh-to-death new video over the weekend, the internet has responded and the verdict is in: "Beyoncé totally wore a butt pad. Just sayin'". Yep, that's the general consensus.

Is it fair? We've pulled the best butt-bits from her '7/11' video for you to do some further analysis, check it out above.

"Beyoncé had that butt pad on in that video. Clear as day... Sigh why girl, why?!" wrote @Chocolategirl08

"My mom doesn't like 7/11 because she think beyonce booty look fake" added @browntayy

It wouldn't be a solid twitter debate without some pro-Bey supporters standing up for their queen.

"How can people say beyonce got a fake butt. She's always had booty & it actually looks real since her legs are thick too. F---in haters," wrote @Sillylili94

@yesLIVcan used a simple rule of physics to make her point: "If Beyoncé wore a butt pad then how did she make her cheeks clap? Are you claiming she used a machine?"

Some fans even suggested that Bey was mocking Kim Kardashian with her accented derriere.

Fake butt issues aside, there's no denying that the '7/11' video is a game changer. Seriously, could Beyoncé get any cooler? By going back to basics, she proves that she is indeed "fresher than you". #preach

The entire thing was filmed with an iPad/iPhone (including an awesome selfie-stick moment) and looked more "YouTube star" than "pop star", completely deconstructing the nature of pop videos as we know them.

Meta!
