With a little help from the team here at LabelsPlus, you can say bye-bye to awkward silences, hello to socialable water cooler moments.
Sunday 26 January was one of the biggest nights in the music calendar, as the Grammy Awards took place at the Nokia Theatre and Staples Centre, in downtown Los Angeles.
The event saw French dance duo, Daft Punk, ‘get lucky’ with five awards, including best album and record of the year. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis won four awards and also performed their smash hit single, ‘Same Love’, with pop queen Madonna. She upstaged the boys, in an outfit clearly inspired by the Milky Bar Kid.
We also got as close as we ever will to a Beatles reunion, as Ringo Starr joined the legendary Sir Paul McCartney on stage, but why oh why, didn’t they perform a Beatles track!!
The 86th Academy Awards don’t take place until 2 March 2014, but the nominees have been announced. This means it’s the perfect time to make your Oscar night predictions over a drink of cold water with a friend. Will Gravity beat stiff opposition from 12 Years a Slave for Best Picture, and will Leonardo DiCaprio finally get his hands on a statue at the fourth time of asking?
The UK’s own Dame Judi Dench is up for Best Actress at this year’s awards, but she is up against Oscar queen Meryl Streep to get it. Think she stands a chance? Why not ask a colleague what they think?
Fans of car crash TV are in their element this January as a variety of celebs put their necks on the line for our amusement in two of the most bonkers television events ever dreamt up.
The current series of Splash! has seen national treasure Tom Daley look on as soap stars, reality tv stars, TV talent show dancers and Michaela Strachan turn their hand to the high dive. This week, Paralympian Richard Whitehead and former rugby player Austin Healey made it to the semi finals but the show said goodbye to Saturdays singer Una Foden.
Even more heart-pounding is The Jump, which sees 12 moderately famous faces go head-to-head in some of the toughest and most dangerous winter sports, soon to be seen at Sochi 2014. From Sir Steve Redgrave, Sinitta and Ritchie from 5ive, to Melinda Messenger, Anthea Turner and Amy Childs, celebs compete in the Skeleton, Giant Slalom and Two Person Bobsleigh. The kicker is that every night, the two celebs who perform the worst take each other on in the ski jump. Last time out it was hairdresser Nicky Clarke who had to attempt the hair-raising feat - why not bring up this death defying leap with a colleague?
Britain has been warned to brace for more bad weather as snow hits Scotland and the rest of us can expect plenty of rain at the very least. This is the worst possible news for residents of the South West, where devastating floods have already struck. Many towns are still submerged in water.
Wherever you are in the UK, you’re not likely to be greeted with a warm welcome if you bring up rumours of a cold snap. The LabelsPlus team say “let’s talk about something else”.
New Year’s Resolutions
As we reach the end of January, many New Year’s Resolutions have already fallen by the wayside. So let’s get away from talk of dreary diets and exhausting exercise regimes.
Why not pay somebody a compliment today; just don’t remind them that they gave up their morning coffee on New Year’s Eve.
