McFly have announced details of a UK arena tour. The 'Party Girl' group, who recently played five sold-out intimate gigs, will now play 13 arena dates across the UK throughout March next year.

McFly recently released their fifth studio album Above The Noise, which spawned the top ten hits 'Party Girl' and 'Shine A Light', which features (more) »

McFly want life-size sex dolls of themselves. The group, comprising Tom Fletcher, Harry Judd, Danny Jones and Dougie Poynter, think it would be "funny" to create raunchy replicas that their male and female fans could buy.
"We want McFly sex dolls! I think it would be really funny. I'd buy one," Danny said. "They should definitely be suitable for both guys and girls though."
While the "Party Girl" hitmakers want their own range of sex dolls, the band won't be following in the footsteps of chart rivals Jls and releasing a range of condoms, as they think their line would probably be "too small" and unsafe for the general public.
Harry joked, "Our condoms wouldn't be very safe. They would be too small for everyone else to even use!" Danny added, "It's not a good move for anyone if we branch out into condoms."
Meanwhile, Dougie, who has been dating »
Will Smith's daughter Willow has one of the hit songs of the year, and Jay-z says she's at the start of an 'incredible journey'. But is it all still too much too young, asks Caroline Sullivan
Willow Smith only turned 10 in October, but you'd hardly have guessed it from watching her on the Ellen DeGeneres show on Us television last week. It was the debut TV performance of her first single, Whip My Hair, and she pulled it off with the unsettling poise – and
voice – of someone twice her age. DeGeneres accurately called the track "one of the hottest songs of the year" – it sold 137,000 downloads in the Us in its first week and is expected to be a hit here, too.
Whip My Hair is an energetic pop/R&B tune in which Willow cocks a snook at "the haters" and urges "all my ladies" – this probably means »

McFly no longer care about chart positions. The "Party Girl" hitmakers recently launched a pay-to-use website "McFly Super City", which allows fans access to exclusive content, as well as downloads of their music for free, and insist they are not concerned about the impact giving their tracks away through the site will have on their sales.
"Chart positions have become less and less important," singer Tom Fletcher said. "Unless you are number one, no one pays attention to whether you are number two or number 15 and no one really cares. We'd prefer fans to sign up to our super site than give us a number one single. It means a hell of a lot more than someone just downloading the song."
McFly Super City costs 6 pounds sterling per month or 40 pounds sterling per year, compared to an average price of 0.79 pounds sterling per song on other download sites.

McFly are going to be remixed by Roger Sanchez. The "Song For the Radio" group, who unveiled a new pop-dance influenced sound on their latest album "Above the Noise", met the dance superstar at a London hotel in August, and singer Danny Jones said he was instantly reminded of Dallas Austin, who produced tracks on their new LP.
"Roger got in touch, so I met him when we were in America. He reminded me a lot of Dallas Austin but with a sentimental side," he said. "He's got family and hangs out with his kids, whereas Dallas would be like 'Wahey, let's go out and get some birds'."
"But he was a lot like Dallas, he wore his shades inside and stuff, he's a really nice guy and he gave me some good advice and wants to do some McFly remixes and stuff, and he wants to help me with my dance project. »
McFly reckon they will be like ''Kiss or Slipknot'' in ten years time. The 'Party Girl' group have changed their sound dramatically over their career, going from guitar pop to rock and now having a dance music influenced sound; but singer and guitarist Danny Jones sees their long term future in either a glam rock or heavy metal. He exclusively told Bang Showbiz: ''I reckon in 10 or 15 years we'll either be like Kiss or Slipknot where we have to cover ourselves up in all sorts of makeup. That'll be the way.'' His bandmate, frontman Tom Fletcher, is a little less .. »
Heather Morris isn't on Twitter but she did hear that she was quite a hot topic after her Glee episode with Britney Spears aired last week, which she thought was "amazing". "I don't do Twitter but all the kids came on set that day and were like 'Just so you know, Britney's Tweeting about you and you're number two on the trending topics' and I got all these emails," Heather told me. And the pop star even sent Heather a special delivery after their episode... Twitter: Follow Party Girl on Twitter! "She sent me flowers saying 'Good job! Love, Britney' so I'm gonna make her something and send it to her," Heather said. In fact, the »
When it comes to impressing the ladies, forget pickup lines. If you have the technology, why not just pick 'em up? Literally. Well, that's exactly what Tony Stark does in this exclusive first look at "Flying Party Girl," a never-before-seen clip appearing on the Iron Man 2 DVD and Blu-ray, coming out Tuesday. So, what do you think? Should this moment have been part of the original theatrical release, or was the cutting room floor the proper place for it? We have a feeling we know what Pepper Potts and Rhodey would say. »

Parker Posey is a sort of NYC indie institution; in fact, she was dubbed "Queen of the Indies" in 1997 by Time, which was no small feat for a then-28-year-old. Although she made an impression with smaller parts in movies like Dazed and Confused, her lead role as Mary in 1995's Party Girl was her breakthrough. One might even argue -- or daydream -- that her role as Mary, a downtown girl who has a giant loft, an excellent wardrobe, and connections to anyone who's who in town -- could be confused with Posey herself. In any case, it's the first movie Posey carries on her own shoulders, and it's an adorable little movie and captures a corner of New York that I never got a chance to know and that's long gone by now.
Since then, Posey has become the poster girl for type of It Girl -- the »

Craig here. It's Sunday. It's Take Three time.
Today: Rosamund Pike
Take One: An(ti) Education?
Earlier this year two great 1960s booze-soaked lushes missed out on Supporting Actress Oscar nods: Julianne Moore's Charley in A Single Man and Pike's Helen in An Education (2009). I'd personally have slotted both in the running had I sole ownership of the voting ballots. Similarly with her performance in The Libertine (see below) Pike sneaks in and very nearly scoops the film out of the hands of her co-stars. But, as with Moore, maybe her screen time wasn't quite enough to grab the Academy's full attention. No matter - Pike was the freshest and most lively presence in the film, Oscar nom or no.
Helen comes on like a Bright Young Thing - albeit dimly lit - full of the joys of life. But she wasn't all just boozy bewilderment though. She had »

McFly have revealed that they were inspired by Prince and Michael Jackson on their new album. The group recently announced that the first single from the new LP would be 'Party Girl'. Tom Fletcher told the Daily Star: "We realised all the songs we’d been writing early on could have gone on the last album and that we weren’t doing anything new. "It made us decide to challenge ourselves to do something completely different. We wanted a drastic step in the other direction. "A couple of the songs in that early bunch that stood (more) »
