Crowded House

This legendary band have returned with a stunning album which deserves to be rated alongside their best.

Crowded House formed in Melbourne in 1985 and first tasted global success with their massive 1987 hit 'Don't Dream It's Over'. They continued to have hits for a decade before the band split in 1996 following a farewell concert outside Sydney Opera House in front of 120,000 fans. Time On Earth is the re-united Crowded House's fifth studio album and their first since 1993's Together Alone.

EXCLUSIVE: Timomatic's 'nasty' body transformation… and why he's happy to show it off MusicFIX Blog by Carmarlena Murdaca Nov 27 2014 3:24PM

Timomatic's not usually one to talk about his sexuality.

In a world where Miley Cyrus twerks, JLo booty-pops and Rihanna wears body bling instead of actual clothing, Timomatic's now "comfortable" going shirtless… and his sensual music video for recent tune 'Delilah' proves he's at ease with his buff bod.

"I'm very comfortable with my own sexuality," he exclusively told TheFIX. "And feeling sexy comes from a place of confidence. It's tapping into that inner self-esteem and knowing you're the motherf------ s---, as opposed to saying to yourself "okay, I'm going to act sexy now." So we're guessing there's no mirror mantras pre-filming?

Although we truly feel he was born with a six pack, the former Australia's Got Talent mentor says getting into shape was hard work… and that things got "pretty nasty during his heavy dieting".

"For six months of this year, I was working with a personal trainer to create the body I wanted for the next phase of my life," he added. "It took a lot of focus, but it's not something I could ever sustain. I got pretty nasty around that time!"

Slamming the split rumours that have surrounded his relationship with girlfriend Talia Fowler, Timomatic reaffirmed that his privacy is very important to him.

"I treat rumours like fire, they only get bigger if you add wood to them," he told us. "I think each to their own, but I like to guard my personal life quite a lot. I think when you're love life is in a media forum, it's not necessarily taken as seriously. What people seem to forget is that for everyone involved, it's real life. It's not that I don't want people knowing anything about my life, but I'd rather just put my guard up and experience what I'm feeling."

After a year of "self-discovery and creation", Timomatic is now going back to his roots to find out who and what he represents… which now includes his involvement in the Beats 4 Breast Cancer Concert held in Sydney on December 10th.

"Any kind of event that goes beyond music for music's sake is a really powerful thing," he said. "It's definitely nice to be a part of something that is going to make a change.

"I also think that as a celebrity, we have a duty of service to people to use our status to make positive changes and any platform we can do that in is really powerful."

Sia 'saddened' by no-show ARIAs criticism: 'I made four thank you videos…they chose to show one' MusicFIX Blog by Yasmin Vought Nov 27 2014 12:06PM

Sia had the perfect response to critics slamming her for not attending the 2014 ARIA awards last night, even though she'd pre-recorded four acceptance vids.

The US based singer, who won four awards at the ceremony, took to Twitter to defend herself, then offered out her awards to fans. What a champ!

"I made four thank you/acceptance videos for the ARIAs," the 38-year-old wrote. "They chose to show one. I'm saddended to be getting s--- for being a no-show.

"On the upside, I won! Who wants one? First four people to document doing a good deed, I'll send you an ARIA."

The best response so far to the Aussie singer's request was a selfie by fellow ARIA nominee Ed Sheeran (below), captioned: "@Sia I'm overweight, send me one plz, that can your good deed."

Well played, Ed.

Sia won four ARIAs for Best Video ('Chandelier'), Best Female Artist, Best Pop Release and the Telstra Album of the Year award (1000 Forms of Fear).
