A first edition Harry Potter book has sold for thousands at a recent auction…and you won’t believe how much it went for. The Philosopher’s Stone has just sold for the equivalent of 30,000 OMR. The rare copy was previously owned by a father who used it to teach his three children after they moved to Luxembourg from England. The book was one of only 500 hardback first editions printed.


Coldplay got together recently for a very special performance. They put on a one-off live stream for the #EveryVoteCounts campaign in the US to encourage officials to count every vote. Those that caught the show say they played for around 30 minutes and put on one heck of a performance.


Ariana Grande has posted some more teases about the launch of her new album on Instagram. She offered no explanation for the post, leaving fans to speculate that it may be a song or album title. She did, however, also launch an official countdown that is most likely leading to the release of new music on October 23rd and again on October 30th.
