McFly “just excellent” says Natalie Appleton

McFly have already gained a few celeb fans- and now they can add one more (or two, sorry) to their list- the lovely ladies from Appleton. In a recent interview, when asked what pop acts Nat & Nic thought were good right now, Nat was more than happy to speak about Tom, Danny, Dougie & Harry. “McFly are just excellent,” she said. “I took my daughter, Rachel to see Busted last year where they were supporting and I was just blown away by how good they are. It’s very rare to find a group like them in the charts and they deserve all the success they get.”

However, whether or not this means a duet between Nat, Nic and McFly is yet to be seen- but if it ever happened- I’d love to see the results…

Speaking with AOL Music, R&B singer Eric West tells the Internet giant who will premiere his new single as part of AOL’s “Breakers” late summer, that his new album “Half “> Life” include samples from pop icons Annie Lennox and Dean Martin.

The model turned singer explained ‘This album should have been out a year ago, but I’m glad that it wasn’t released, it gave us time to fix every lyric, note, instrument.’ He went on to say, ‘I’ve been through so much, I’m surprised I’m still alive, I realize now, why the album wasn’t out a year ago, it wasn’t the right time.’

Eric samples Dean Martin’s “Memories are Made of This” on the urban single “Half “> Life”, and samples the Annie Lennox classic “Why” on the track “Wires” (read, Actor and Pop Singer Eric West Gives Back to AIDS Cause with New Song, and Builds Up Media Buzz with New Album and New Movie).
