#Jedward Bask In The Afterglow With Ed Sheeran Gift And Acoustic Cover Duet

It’s a question a lot of us have to ask, when it comes to selecting Christmas gifts for others – what do you get that they can’t already get themselves?

John Grimes Shows His Perspective On New Justin Bieber And Shawn Mendes Collab, ‘Monster’ With His Acoustic Guitar Cover

Fame at a young age can have a dramatic effect on a person, a fact to which Justin Bieber, and fellow Canadian and former child star, Shawn Mendes, can certainly attest. The pair last month released their collaborative single, ‘Monster’, in which they recount the roller coaster ride each has been through, the highs and lows of being hot and then not – and what it does to one’s mental health and well-being.

Got A Difficult Person To Buy For? Jedward Have The Christmas Present For You!

Somehow it’s already November, and if you’re like me, you’ve left it late to organise your Christmas presents. It’s been a hard year, and even if you can get out to the shops to buy gifts, the general vibe of 2020 has been one of not feeling up to it, motivated, or having the energy to think of what to get.

Thankfully, Jedward have it all under control! The acknowledged saviours of 2020 with their life affirming tweets, positive music, and random good vibes DMs, have come up with not just one, but TWO fantastic ways to spread the Christmas joy this year, at two different price points, so you can choose how much you want to spend (or if you’re like me, you’ve bought both for yourself!).

2020 Continues To Surprise As Jedward Are Suggested For EU Trade Position

Irish MEP (Member of the European Parliament) Phil Hogan stepped down as EU Trade Commissioner last week, following the much publicised #golfgate – he attended a golf dinner for 80 guests, after having first taken a seeming grand tour of Ireland, including restricted counties, such as Kildare.

If you’ve missed the recent drama over Jedward’s debut single, ‘Under Pressure (Ice Ice Baby)’, then we’ll quickly bring you up to speed.
