It’s been revealed that ABBA weren’t a single bit nervous when they went back in to the recording studio for the first time in 40 years. They are releasing their first new songs for 4 decades in the form of a studio album along with a ‘greatest hits’ tour as digital characters. They made the move to get back together after realising the magic that helped turned them into international stars in the 70s and early 80s was still there.


Nicole Scherzinger is facing a legal battle after slamming the Pussycat Dolls lawsuit filed against her as ‘ludicrous and false’. It has been claimed that Nicole had threatened to walk away from a reunion tour unless she was given ‘a majority share and complete creative control in relaunching the group’. She is accused of refusing to participate in the tour, according to the complaint, after she ‘demanded to renegotiate the terms of the Memorandum of Understanding’.


TikTok has beaten YouTube in terms of the average watch time per user according to a new report. The growth of TikTok comes despite the ban in India, which was the largest market for the app. The report shows that the average watch time per user in the US on TikTok was nearly 9% more than that on YouTube, and in the UK the average time spent per user on TikTok was over 64% more than YouTube.
