Phoebe Loomes and Nathan Jolly talk all things entertainment.

    Why is Australian media ignoring The Kid Laroi?

    Why is Australian media ignoring The Kid Laroi?

    Australian musician The Kid Laroi has just been signed up by Scooter Braun, manager of Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato and more. This comes after the Aboriginal teenager had a top three US album, hit songs with Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber, a brilliant SNL performance, and became the youngest Aussie to top the ARIA charts - so why isn't mainstream Australian media paying attention? 

    Australian designer Camilla reacted to criticism of her misguided collection that 'glamourises colonialism' by launching a more inclusive runway show with Pip Edwards at Australian Fashion Week, and boy did it go wrong! 

    Elsewhere, Kanye West has been spotted with his new lover Irina Shayk (in France, on his birthday, of course), and Harry and Meghan welcome their new baby Lilibet into the world - but not without a lot of controversy.

    In the deep end with Melody Pool

    Melody Pool is an Australian singer songwriter who is responsible for two of the finest albums of the past ten years: 2013's The Hurting Scene, and 2016 follow-up Deep Dark Savage Heart. She is currently on tour for the first time in years, but had her plans interrupted by the Melbourne lockdown.

    Elon Musk and Byron Baes: Too Big To Fail

    Elon Musk and Byron Baes: Too Big To Fail

    Instagram influencers keep hitting out at Netflix production Byron Baes — but have they shot themselves in the (shoeless) foot? The streaming service draws in hundreds of millions of viewers, and this program could be one of Australia’s biggest ever reality series.

    Online vigilantes Anonymous have sent a warning to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, so is the beloved billionaire in for a wake up call, or is he just a loveable genius? Or both? Or neither? 

    And a new auction of Marilyn Monroe’s only known cookbooks has revealed some of her hand-written notes and one of the diets she used to follow. We go into what the silver screen siren ate (spoiler: it's a starch and egg-fest) and we explore another ill-informed diet from the 1960s that you really shouldn't follow if you want to be a functional human.

    The Freewheelin' Emma Swift

    The Freewheelin' Emma Swift

    Listen to our interview with Emma Swift, who released her critically acclaimed album Blonde On The Tracks in 2020.

    Emma talked to Already Saturday, from hotel quarantine in Sydney, about releasing a successful record in a pandemic, living through the Donald Trump presidency in a Republican state, and how Nashville, Tennessee is a lot like meeting a new boyfriend.

    She also talked about how streaming services affect indie artists, and shared details on her upcoming work — saying she’s been inspired by musicians like The Go-Betweens, Nick Cave, and The Triffids — Aussies who fled overseas to find themselves.

    The Veronicas vs. reality TV

    The Veronicas vs. reality TV

    This week, The Veronicas picked a fight with Channel 9 over the way they’ve been depicted in The Celebrity Apprentice. 

    We watched the Friends Reunion: Brace for real life romance, and a major spoiler alert for this one. 

    And in Kardashian news: Kim is being sued by seven of her former staffers over labor issues -- and in the same week she’s denied that she ever had sex with Travis Barker, Blink 182 drummer and Kourtney Kardashian’s boyfriend.
