British pop star cutie Olly Murs is debuting his very first US album Right Place Right Time in just SIX days and we have your exclusive chance to celebrate the big release with Olly himself!
J-14, TWIST and M Magazine are going introduce you to the
former X Factor hottie! Yep, that’s right — we’re holding an exclusive contest with Olly Murs just for our readers.
When we chatted with Olly about getting to meet his American fans, he told us, “I don’t really know any American girls. They won’t necessarily know me for who I
am in the UK, so they’re actually going to be meeting me for who I am. It’s
quite nice.” Hear that ladies? Olly wants to meet YOU!
So, we’re hooking up ten of our readers with the grand prize treatment. Each winner will get a VIP pass for you and a friend to a meet and greet with the “Troublemaker” singer. How cool would it be to show all of your buds a selfie with you and Olly — or your autographed copy of his brand new CD?!
The event will be held at the Westfield Garden State Plaza in Paramus, NJ (Lord & Taylor Court) on Thursday, April 18 at 5 PM EST/PST. Please note transportation is not provided, and unless over 18, all winners must be accompanied by a guardian.
If you don’t live in the area, no worries! We didn’t forget about you guys! There’s a second part to the contest — we’re also giving away 20 signed copies of Olly’s new album!
On Friday, Dec. 7, M attended the red carpet of Z100 Jingle Ball in New York City's Madison Square Garden -- we got the latest scoop on your fave stars!
Yep, that's right! We're going to fill you in on One Direction, Ed Sheeran, Olly Murs, and Cher Lloyd. We're also going to share some other awesome pics we took of Taylor Swift and The Wanted! So...are you ready?
First thing's first. Here's our close-up pic of Harry Styles -- look at his GORG smile:
Now here's a pic of Zayn Malik and Niall Horan:
So, here's the dish about the lovely lads. When asked what the difference between their stage make-up and normal make-up was, Louis responded: "We don't wear make-up!"
They also spilled that for they love wearing track suits! When asked what they were going to wear the next day, Niall replied: "We're going back to London, so I'll probably be wearing a track suit all day." Why, we ask? "Because they're comfortable!" he said.
Another one of our fave celebs, Ed Sheeran, stopped by M on the carpet to chat!
We learned what he does when he can't sleep. "I watch loads of YouTube videos." Hmm... maybe we should try that!
We also wanted to find out about Ed's hairstyling tips. When asked if he uses hair products when it's his day off, he said: "No, only if someone's coming around."
Let's talk Olly Murs! Check out our Q & A with him below, and an adorbs pic! M: What's your favorite date? Olly: McDonalds!
LOL! Then we got more serious and talked about girls...
M: What's a quality you like in a girl? Olly: Lovely eyes.
M: What's about a pet peeve? Olly: If they eat with their mouth full and then they speak with their mouth full. Not attractive.
M: Who do you want to be your New Year's kiss? Olly: This lady standing right there!
(Pssst...Olly was talking about one of us from M! Now THAT'S swoon-worthy!)
And lastly, here's our convo with Cher Lloyd: M: Do you have a Christmas tradition? Cher: I make the placemats for my grandma for the table. I make them myself and I give them to her to put on the table.
M: What's your favorite fashion moment? Cher: I've got to say the pictures from tonight. This is my favorite outfit! I have to get my stuff custom made because I'm really small.
Here's some more photos from the red carpet! First up: Taylor Swift.
Lastly, here are two pics of The Wanted:

While playing a game in a recent interview, Olly Murs confirmed that Harry Styles and Taylor Swift are in fact dating. The singer, who is a good buddy of One Direction's, said, "I would avoid Taylor Swift, because she's dating one of my friends, she's going out with Harry Styles," he explained. "So, Harry, I couldn't obviously go near Taylor 'cause that's his missus."
Check out the video of him talking about Haylor below!
-Do you think Harry and Taylor make a cute couple?
We recently got to chat with cutie Olly Murs while he was in NYC for an exclusive Central Park performance! The former X Factor contestant, who has already had two albums out in the UK, is about to release his very first album in the U.S -- so of course we had to get all the deets! Check out what Olly had to say about his fans, his new single "Troublemaker", dating an American girl, and what he and Niall do on their days off!
M: Hey Olly! What does it feel like to perform here in Central Park?
Olly: It's the first time I've been, I never get a chance to come and see the sights, so actually here today it's been nice to sort of have a look around and actually do a performance, and see some fans as well. It's always a pleasure, cause whenever you do the music and stuff, you want to see the response from fans, and so to see that many people here, in New York City, in Central Park, it's incredible.
M: Now that you have fans here in America, what's the difference between American fans and UK fans?
Olly: I think they're all as lovely as each other, and I get on so well with all of them. And I think with me, I've always had a great connection with my fans I always like to talk to them and have a conversation. They're all really nice. There's a few of them that I've noticed have met me at different gigs, and they're really sweet and nice. You know, I like the ones that don't hassle you, they just like to see you, and have a chat, and I like that, it's cool. I'm just a normal guy, so it's nice to talk to people.
M: So, what about American girl vs. British girls?
Olly: I Think that it's fresh for me in America because people don't know who I am, so I'm kinda open here for a girl to woo my heart. American girls won't necessarily know me for who I am in the UK, so they're actually gonna be meeting me for who I am, which is quite nice. I could go to a random state in America, and I can meet the girl of my dreams, cause she doesn't know who I am! In the UK it's harder, because I'm much bigger in the UK, and I've had lots of success there, so it is very difficult for me to meet girls.
M: What about your friends in the UK? Do people treat you differently now that you're famous?
Olly: I think that when your life changes so much, you're always gonna have someone that's not gonna get it, or people who are gonna find it hard or difficult. Yeah, people have changed, but it's part of my job, so unfortunately that has happened, but I know who my real mates are, so I'm lucky really.
M: Speaking of friends, you're good pals with One Direction. Have you heard their new album?
Olly: I've heard bits of it. Cause I went out with Niall recently, and we caught up and it sounds amazing. It does sound really, really good, and I think the One Direction mania of US fans, and UK fans, or any fans across the world are gonna love the album, it's great.
M: Nice! And what about your new music? Tell us about "Troublemaker"!
Olly: There's always a girl in your life that's a bit of a troublemaker that causes problems, and you don't wanna like them, but you do. So there's been many girls like that in my life, and I think that any guy can relate to this song, and I think girls can relate to it, us guys are just as bad! I think it's a really great song. I'm happy with it, and I think the reaction from the fans has been amazing.
M: And finally we have to talk about the album, "Right Place, RIght Time", why should M Girls check it out?
Olly: From start, from track one all the way to the end, it's just amazing. So I'm really happy. It's a really step forward, and I think it's the best album I've done, and I think to put this album out to America, it's the perfect time. The right place, and the right time!
