In this week’s What’s Hot we’re taking over Hyde Park, talking all things DMs and living for the Grammy Award goss.
The Grammys are back…
Some say the Grammys are to music what the Met Gala is to fashion. We say the Grammys give good fashion as well as (some) good music… Last Sunday we saw the 64th annual Grammy Awards, hosted in Las Vegas, with the likes of Justin Bieber ( is a MASSIVE suit), Lil Nas X, Olivia Rodrigo all enjoying the success of the night.
Would it drive as much buzz as this year’s Oscars (see our views here on that), well no but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a great night for meme-able fashion choices.
Over the night we saw guest performances from Lady Gaga, BTS and Billie Eilish, and of course, host Trevor Noah, who made reference to the iconic slap at the Oscar just two weeks earlier. However in recent days the show has been somewhat overshadow by the news of Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Scott’s ‘practice’ marriage, because I mean, who knew that was a thing?
Can anyone sing? ?
Not so humble brag alart…To celebrate the launch of ‘Anyone Can Sing’ on Sky Arts, we took over the iconic Speakers’ Corner in Hyde Park, renaming it ‘Singers Corner’.
Not only was it the first time this had ever been done, we also invited the super talented Myleene Klass and Anyone Can Sing mentor Nick Spence to Hyde Park to teach the people of London that perhaps anyone can sing!
We saw a great turn out with Londoners getting involved in the action and over 80 pieces of coverage!

Sending DMs like never before
Just weeks after announcing their chronological feed, Instagram has now shared new messaging features, including music sharing and chat themes!
However, one of the bigger updates this month is a ‘reply while you browse’ option, meaning users no longer have to tap through to their DM inbox to respond (there’s no excuse for not replying to messages now…).
The team at Instagram have also introduced polls within group chats in an attempt to get more people sending DMs, meaning planning events with your besties just got a whole lot easier.
The perfect match?
This month, Stella McCartney has teamed up with Adidas to create a leopard-print football kit for Arsenal’s women’s team.
The 10 piece collection, includes a gender neutral pre-match top, to help promote the women’s football team and hopes to “inspire both current and the future generation of athletes”. And it’s certainly got people talking….
To show their support and solidarity, the men’s team also wore the pre match jerseys in their warm up for their match against Crystal Palace on Monday.
