Please note: It was not actually Ellie Goulding counting some money beside her car. We have simply Photoshopped (uncanny, we know) her head on to protect the identity of the
So, quite a change from last time. First we have a double spread for JD Sports. We'll ignore this as a)it is not music related and b)we have never exercised in our life.

"Founded by Grammy Award-winning, critically-acclaimed, multi-platinum rap superstar Lil Wayne, Young Money Entertainment will introduce the world to hip-hop’s hottest new collective with the release of We Are Young Money, one of the most anticipated albums of the year."

No-One Knows About Persian Cats: First we thought this was another band we'd never heard of. Then we found out it's a film. Kasi Az Gorbehaye Irani Khabar Nadareh, to give it its proper name, is about Iranian musicians. Perhaps one for a contemplative Sunday rather than a partying Friday?

Bye Pak's Wig Shop. See you next time.
