TRACK(S) OF THE WEEK: For the first time in its brief life, Pop Corner can’t make up its mind. So, we’re going rogue and promoting TWO tracks this week. In the blue corner, Katy Perry’s California Gurls. Eager to big up the West Coast, the track hosts a rap from Snoop Dogg, and lyrics about popsicles and Daisy Dukes. In the red corner is Miley Cyrus with Can’t Be Tamed. Miley’s taken a sexy electro-edge. Less Party in the USA, more Party With My Parents Away, we like this. A LOT.

** In a match dreamed up in marketing heaven, Cory Monteith (from Glee) is rumoured to be dating Taylor Swift. Watch your step, Cory. When Taylor was dumped by Joe Jonas, she got a full album’s worth of material. Now, what rhymes with ‘Cory’?

FACT OF THE WEEK:Tinchy Strider is the same height as Kylie Minogue (5ft 1in) and the shortest male artist to have had a #1 hit .

** We are happy to report that Britney Spears is still very loved up with her agent/boyfriend Jason Trawick. Fans of Britney’s love life may recall that dad Jamie Spears tried to tear the pair apart, saying that the relationship had become “too intense”. So, in a shocking twist, they’ve found a compromise. Jason will step down as Brit’s agent, and they will focus on their personal relationship. Britney? Acting sensibly? What’s next, a Busted comeback?

** Busted are looking for a new member. In an attempt to replace Charlie “Eyebrows” Simpson (left), they are to take part in a reality TV-style search. When? you ask. The year 3000, by the look of things.
