Biffy Clyro's Simon Neil says that the band's headlining performance at Reading festival has produced "moments [they'll] never forget". Speaking in the middle of their set, frontman Neil told the crowd that they thought it "couldn't get any better" than their headlining performance at the festival in 2013. He also told the audience to "Mon the Reading" – a play on the famous 'Mon the Biffy' fan phrase. The Kilmarnock trio headlined Leeds last night (August 26) and are currently headlining Reading today (August 28) in what is their 10th appearance at the festivals - and the second time they have headlined. Getty Meanwhile, the band have said they feel as though they have "paid our dues" at Reading and Leeds festivals over the years. "To be asked [to headline] before was such a huge moment in the band's life," guitarist James Johnston told the BBC. "I think we have probably paid our dues, we've played all the small stage and worked our way up." Asked why they have such a close relationship with the festivals, Johnston replied: "It feels like there is a lot of good will from the punters that come here. We feel it is an opportunity to try and improve on what we did before, maybe we will pick up some new fans. It is one that has long been really close to our hearts," he added.

Famous Exhibit at Blum & Poe Art Gallery pic.twitter.com/o1ZuqSCrOj— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) August 28, 2016 West has since given his perspective on the video to Vanity Fair, saying that "it's a comment on fame. It’s not in support or anti any of [the people in the video]." He also spoke about the inclusion in the video of former President Bush, who West notably criticised in 2005 during a live television appeal for relief funds for those affected by Hurricane Katrina in the American south. "Maybe in some alternative universe me and George Bush could have been friends," he told the magazine. "I could have been his O.J. Simpson black friend on the golf course." West also took to Twitter the morning after the premiere to deliver some rather more uncensored opinions. Among a series of now-deleted tweets, West notably said "Can somebody sue me already" along with the hashtag #I'llwait.

Lady Gaga joined Tame Impala during their performance at FYF Festival last night. The singer made a surprise appearance and joined the band as they neared the end of their performance. Greeting the crowd and hugging Kevin Parker, she then performed 'New Person, Same Old Mistakes' with them. Lady Gaga recently announced her new single, 'Perfect Illusion' which was produced by Tame Impala singer Kevin Parker with Mark Ronson and BloodPop, who produced Justin Bieber’s single 'Sorry'.

The new album sees Gaga reunite with RedOne, producer of her hits ‘Poker Face’, ‘Just Dance’ and ‘Bad Romance’. RedOne told Billboard of their reunion: “We both have a cleaner life now.

The detective drama returned after a two-and-a-half year hiatus for a pair of hourlong episodes last December. Before that, four episodes aired in 2013 and 2011, and six were broadcast when the series debuted in 2010. The fan asked Elba, "what's the chance of a new series of Luther?" to which he replied, "Big chance. Watch this space.." Big chance. Watch this space..https://t.co/XbLuK5Fwww— Idris Elba (@idriselba) August 28, 2016 Last month, Elba was asked on This Morning if a Luther movie is a possibility, replying: "A film is on the wish list. I think John Luther could transfer really well to a film. We haven't quite got there yet, but yeah man, it could happen." He also spoke optimistically about the possibility of Luther returning to the small screen in the future, saying: "I'd like to [do more episodes]. The audience loved John Luther and I don't think the story's over yet." On July 14, it was announced that he has been nominated for an Emmy Award for his performance in Luther's recent two-part special, the third time he has been recognised by the Emmys for his performance as John Luther.

Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz has told the crowd at Reading that the band will be "back with new music." Confirming that their performance at the festival is "the last one for the [American Beauty/American Psycho] cycle," Wentz then said that the band would return with new material. The four-piece also paid tribute to David Bowie during their set, with visuals of the late artist and his trademark Ziggy Stardust lightning strike make-up, appearing on the big screen. Don't take any of this for granted.— peteachu (@petewentz) August 20, 2016 Meanwhile, Wentz spoke to the BBC, stating that he never thought the band would be headlining festivals. "I've walked by the headliner compound backstage about eight trillion times and now we're sitting in it," he said. "It's pretty spectacular to come here under these circumstances." He continued, saying, "I'd be lying if I said I thought we'd be headlining festivals." Including tonight's performance, the band have played the festival five times. "It's been a slow thing," Wentz explained. "It's been a fantastic building, learning experience for us." Last week, he tweeted "Don't take any of this for granted", before telling the BBC that the first time the band played the festival "there were bottles [thrown at them] and stuff."

Rudy Van Gelder, an eminent sound engineer, has died aged 91. Born in Jersey City, NJ on November 2, 1924, Van Gelder (pictured above, third on the left, with the Roger Dawson Septet) became a well known name in the jazz world, working extensively in the 50s and 60s for labels such as Blue Note, Impulse and Prestige. Artists that Van Gelder worked for include John Coltrane – on his seminal 1965 LP 'A Love Supreme' – Herbie Hancock and Miles Davis. On Thursday night at his Englewood Cliffs home in New Jersey, which also doubled as his studio, Van Gelder passed away, his assistant Maureen Sickler told the New York Times. Getty Last year Miles Davis was voted the greatest jazz artist of all time in a poll compiled by the BBC. And in April a biopic about Davis's life was released, starring actor Don Cheadle, who also co-wrote and directed the movie. Speaking to NME about the late great musician, and why he wanted to make the film in the first place, Cheadle said: "He changed music three or four times…he was always searching for another sound at a time when he could have made a living playing the music people were comfortable with. But he wasn't comfortable with that. He had to push himself to new, unknown places and take a lot of chances."

Two 17-year-olds from Greater Manchester have been arrested on suspicion of drug offences following the death of another 17-year-old at Leeds festival this weekend. Lewis Haunch, also 17 and from Greater Manchester, passed away in the early hours of this morning after taking an "unspecified substance", the Guardian reports. Haunch collapsed last night (August 27) at Leeds Festival and was taken to hospital in a critical condition, according to West Yorkshire Police. The festival's police commander, Keith Gilert said: "We are currently investigating the death and how he obtained the substance he took. At this time the indications are that the man consumed drugs immediately before he collapsed. A report will be sent to the coroner in due course." Getty Disclosure headlined the festival last night, while Biffy Clyro played their tenth Leeds festival with a headline set on Friday night and Red Hot Chili Peppers headline tonight. Chili's bassist Flea, who played Reading Festival last night with his band, said he isn't fazed by a Fox News host calling RHCP the "worst band on the planet". Speaking to NME at Reading, Flea said: "I remember seeing a poll recently that said people who watch Fox News knew less about world affairs than people who watch no news at all. It's clearly a funny programme. It doesn't faze me, not really."
