The 12 Biggest Baby Name Influencers of Our Time
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Which famous figures are having the largest influence on baby names right now? The most important baby name influencers are a mix of actors, writers, sports stars, musicians and historical figures. They all share a heroic image that inspires parents and their young namesakes. Here, based on their names’ standings in the current U.S. list of most popular names, are the biggest baby name influencers of our time: Liam (Neeson) The widespread use of the second most popular boys’ name Liam can be directly tied to the ascendance of action hero star Liam Neeson. The name began its steep climb to the top in the early '90s, closely tied to the growing fame of Neeson. The name originated as an Irish short form of William, which is in fact the Irish actor’s full name. In recent years, the popularity of Liam, which is number one in several states, has been further bolstered by that of musicians Liam Gallagher and Liam Payne.

Sarah Tetteh: Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow: Why Beyonce Can't Live Without Her Lucky Weave
Huffington Post - over 3 years
She's made millions by whipping her hair back and fourth more times than Will Smith's daughter. Now the world's watching to see what Beyonce's barnet will do next. While her hubby Jay-Z was in the States watching Blue Ivy, it was left to Beyonce to come over and single-handedly rule Britannia with her killer set at the V Festival. But rather than her clever vocals and booty-shaking dance moves, all eyes were on what hair she'd be wearing - after flying over with a suitcase full of extensions and stylists to work some magic. Just one week after she did a Jessie J and shaved off her locks - the weave was back. And it was all in the name of business. A huge part of Bey's stage act is flicking her hair and rolling her head around for the 'dutty wine' dance in Baby Boy. If you thought the magic was in her weave you were right. I'm afraid the concert affect wouldn't have been the same with the cropped do. She'd need to start all over again with the choreograp ...

Wait goes on for Britain's 'Waity Katie'
Fox News - over 3 years
Britain's Duchess of Cambridge was dubbed "Waity Katie" before Prince William finally proposed to her. And the nickname has resurfaced as the wait for her to give birth drags on. The baby set one day to inherit the British throne was officially due in mid-July, but as the days tick by, boredom, panic and acts of nonsense are creeping in. The media encampment outside St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, central London, where Catherine is due to give birth, is getting twitchy, not to say restless. Any sudden movement of vehicles gets the pulse racing. The scene was livened up Friday when a five-strong group of women wearing Kate masks posed on the hospital steps. And an old-fashioned, sit-on toy car was delivered, wrapped in a red, white and blue bow. Royal supporter Terry Hutt was still there, spending a ninth day camped out on a bench decked in Union Jack regalia with some home-made placards. In Britain's newspapers on Friday, the only baby getting big front-page coverage was one g ...

Dusty Wright: Death of the Album - Singles Going Steady!
Huffington Post - over 3 years
These past few months, I've grown weary trying to find albums that engage me from start to finish. In fact, I've yet to find one album in the past few months I can listen to top to bottom. I truly believe that we are back in the land of "singles." Not saying that a Blood on the Tracks, Dark Side of the Moon, OK Computer, or (What's The Story) Morning Glory? isn't lurking in the shadows, but.... I'm old enough to have bought 45s back in the '60s when I was a young pup; my first was The Beatles "Rain"/"Paperback Writer." In the land of digital, I'm happy to download one single, not always the band or label's choice, from some new noteworthy act and let it fall into my enormous random shuffle playlist (over 8,700 songs and counting). If you love an album that you truly believe holds your attention for ten (or more) songs, I'm all ears. In the interim, here are 12 "singles" I've added to my summer playlist. I'll have more next month...and maybe, just maybe, one entire album! ...

Is An Oasis Reunion On The Cards? And At Glastonbury?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Will the stars align for an Oasis reunion? Stranger things have happened. True, Liam and Noel Gallagher had a famously turbulent professional relationship throughout their 18 years at the helm of one of Britain's most successful bands. Noel and Liam Gallagher - is musical blood thicker than water? And true, after their final showdown in 2009, backstage at a gig in Paris which then had to be cancelled, Noel confirmed that he had left the band, explaining. "I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer." And more practically, both have gone to have fair success with their respective musical projects, Liam continuing with the other members of Oasis under the new tag Beady Eye, and Noel with his new project Flying Birds. But... it's generally acknowledged that the magical chemistry which saw them sell 70 million records has not been replaced, and now even Liam's hinting there may be a warming in the force.

  • 2016
    However, on 4 January 2016, he said on Twitter that he has no plans to pursue a solo career, writing, "Solo record are you fucking tripping dickhead im not a cunt LG X." However in a 2016 interview with Q Magazine, he officially announced he would be releasing songs in 2017 although he doesn't consider it a solo career, advising they're just songs that he has written over the years that he'd like to release.
    More Details Hide Details Gallagher made reference to the previously mentioned tweet, by stating "It's official I'm a cunt LG x" via Twitter. Oasis Solo Beady Eye Other contributions
  • 2015
    On 26 July 2015 Gallagher appeared at an Irish pub in Charlestown, County Mayo playing a number of songs, including possibly new material, in front of pub guests with an acoustic guitar.
    More Details Hide Details
    In June 2015 Gallagher appeared in a charity football match at the Juventus Stadium in Turin.
    More Details Hide Details He appeared alongside former Juventus player Alessandro Del Piero who is a fan of Oasis. On 12 June he performed on the special episode of TFI Friday. He was a part of a Supergroup which included Roger Daltrey (The Who), Paul Arthurs (Oasis), Jay Mehler (Kasabian, Beady Eye) and Zak Starkey (Oasis, The Who). They performed My Generation by The Who.
  • 2013
    Although he had vowed never to return to Glastonbury after headlining with Oasis, Liam opened the 2013 Festival with Beady Eye, and claimed "Glastonbury's back in the good books."
    More Details Hide Details Liam's voice has been compared to a blend of John Lennon and John Lydon. He has stated he has no clear influence other than John Lennon and "music" itself, however, has been known to incorporate many different forms, such as punk, indie and new wave, and recently has explored elements of jazz with Beady Eye. In 2006, Q magazine voted Gallagher the 11th best singer of all time, citing songs such as "Live Forever", "Lyla", "Don't Go Away", "Slide Away" and "Champagne Supernova" as examples of his best work. Gallagher also ensures that the microphone comes in the closest contact with him between his upper lip and nose, rather than directly in front of the mouth as is the case with most singers. On the Definitely Maybe DVD, Gallagher revealed that the reason he sings with his arms behind his back is because it allows him to project more power through his voice. In very early Oasis shows until about 1994, Gallagher can be seen touching the microphone with one hand, but still employing his usual singing posture with the rest of his body.
  • 2012
    On 30 April 2012, Gallagher attended Manchester City's vital derby match with rivals Manchester United.
    More Details Hide Details City won the match through a Vincent Kompany goal, to go above United at the top of the Premier League. Gallagher was seen celebrating the victory, and interrupted a post-match press conference, telling reporters "What do you want to know lads?... top of the league".
  • 2010
    On receiving an award at the 2010 BRIT Awards for the best album of the past 30 years, Gallagher swore while he thanked all the former members of Oasis except for his brother.
    More Details Hide Details He then threw the microphone into the audience. The camera cut to presenter Peter Kay, commenting, "what a knobhead!".
    On 16 March 2010, Liam announced that his new band would be releasing their first single in October with an album to follow the next year. On 9 November 2010 Beady Eye released their first single Bring the Light as a free download The next single from the album, "The Roller", was released in January 2011. The band's debut album Different Gear, Still Speeding was released on 28 February 2011.
    More Details Hide Details On the album the songwriting is credited as a collaborative work between Liam, Andy Bell and Gem Archer. On 3 April 2011 Beady Eye headlined a Japan Tsunami Disaster relief concert at the Brixton Academy. Liam Gallagher organised this multi star-studded event as a fundraiser for the devastating event that happened on 11 March 2011. The event raised over £150,000 for the British Red Cross working in the earthquake and tsunami hit country. Liam also announced that Beady Eye's version of The Beatles' 'Across the Universe', which they performed on the night, would be released as a charity single, to further benefit the fundraising. In March 2012, Liam stated that Beady Eye would play Oasis songs. They did this for the first time when they supported The Stone Roses in June 2012. This prompted speculation as to whether an Oasis reunion was in the offing.

  • 2009
    On 19 November 2009, Liam announced that he would be recording an album with Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock around Christmas time, with a possible release date in July 2010.
    More Details Hide Details Whether guitarist Jeff Wootton recorded for the album is unknown. He told MTV: "We've been demo-ing some songs that we've had for a bit. Just doing that, on the quiet, not making a big fuss about it. After Christmas we might go in the studio and record them and hopefully have an album out in July." He later said that the band would "do it in a different kind of way now. I'll try and reconnect with a new band, new songs, and I'm feeling confident about the songs." He was reported to be "feeling a million percent confident that they could be better than Oasis."
    In November 2009, Gallagher announced that he and former Oasis band members had written new material as part of a new project, and could be gigging as early as a couple of months, and stated that "Oasis are done, this is something new".
    More Details Hide Details
    In mid-2009 at the end of the tour of the same name, the band split up due to Noel not being able to work with Liam any more.
    More Details Hide Details
    In 2009, prior to the group's break up, Noel characterised Liam as "rude, arrogant, intimidating and lazy.
    More Details Hide Details He's the angriest man you'll ever meet. He's like a man with a fork in a world of soup." The final straw for the band came at the Rock En Seine festival in Paris when an altercation between the brothers (subsequently described by Noel as "no physical violence but there was a lot of World Wrestling Federation stuff") prior to their performance resulted in the destruction of one of Noel's guitars and saw him announce his departure from the group. Liam has stated he does not speak much with his brother and that they "don't really have a relationship". During the final tour, the only time that they ever spoke directly was when onstage. However, he has shown signs of conciliation: when asked who is the best frontman ever, Liam said, "Noel Gallagher. What makes a good frontman? Behaving yourself, and not jumping around like a bastard."
  • 2008
    Gallagher and Nicole Appleton were married on 14 February 2008 at Westminster Register Office, the same venue where he married Kensit. Also present were Appleton's sister Natalie and her husband, The Prodigy's Liam Howlett. Noel Gallagher and band mates Gem Archer and Andy Bell were not notified until after the ceremony took place. In August 2013, the couple announced their pending divorce, after five years of marriage, finally formalizing it in April 2014.
    More Details Hide Details Gallagher is a passionate supporter of football club Manchester City FC. During Oasis' first American tour in 1994, Liam frequently changed the words of Noel's songs so that they were offensive to both Americans and Noel. A confrontation after the show led to a chair being thrown and a brawl; Noel left the tour. During the 1995 recording sessions for the second Oasis album, (What's the Story) Morning Glory?, the brothers had a violent fight involving a cricket bat when Liam invited everyone from a local pub back to the studio while Noel was trying to work. In August 1996, after a record breaking two night stand at Knebworth, tension mounted between the Gallaghers when Liam backed out of Oasis' MTV Unplugged set minutes before it was due to start. Noel was forced to fill in at the last minute. Liam claimed to have been struck down with a "sore throat" and that he doesn't like performing acoustically, though Noel claims he was hungover. Noel was further angered when Liam proceeded to heckle him from the balcony while the band performed. Four days later, Noel was again forced to fill in for Liam on the first show of their American tour when Liam refused to travel to America with the rest of the band, claiming he needed time to buy a house. He was back on stage with Oasis for their next show three days later, in Detroit, but tension between Noel and the rest of the band mounted and Noel left the tour, causing several media outlets to question the future of the band.
  • 2007
    Gallagher joined the rest of Oasis to receive the Outstanding Contribution to Music Award at the BRIT Awards 2007.
    More Details Hide Details As the band picked up the award, he commented on stage, "Seeing as we don't get nominated for this shit no more this'll have to do." Around the same time, it was announced that he was in negotiations with the makers of Channel 4 afternoon quiz Countdown to appear as the weekly celebrity guest in "Dictionary Corner". Co-presenter Carol Vorderman, interviewed by The Daily Sport, said, "Liam loves it and yes, we're in talks about him coming on. I told him I think it will do his cred no end of good." 2008 saw the release of the band's final album Dig Out Your Soul (2008), which featured three Liam songs: "I'm Outta Time" (also a single), "Ain't Got Nothin'" and "Soldier On". Dig Out Your Soul went straight to number 1 in the UK Album Charts and reached Number 5 in the US 200 Billboard Charts.
  • 2006
    In 2006, it was alleged that Gallagher had a drunken fight with Paul Gascoigne at the Groucho Club which ended with Gallagher setting off a fire extinguisher in Gascoigne's face.
    More Details Hide Details Gallagher has made known his distaste for many non-Brits' tastes and conventions (particularly those of Australians and Americans). On an early US tour, Gallagher regularly made derisive remarks about Americans, as well as his brother Noel, which led to an ultimatum from the guitarist who briefly left the band in 1994. When addressing their muted reception in the States (especially by comparison to the UK), Gallagher stated "Americans want grungy people, stabbing themselves in the head on stage. They get a bright bunch like us, with deodorant on, they don't get it." Gallagher briefly touched on the topic of religious belief with the statement, "I live for now, not for what happens after I die. If I die and there's something afterwards, I'm going to hell, not heaven. I mean, the devil's got all the good gear. What's God got? The Inspiral Carpets and nuns. Fuck that." However Liam has confessed to going to church, but he claims to not "be looking for guidance". He stated that "some days I don't believe and some days I do believe". Liam claims to have had "a conversation with God one night in a boozer".
  • 2005
    2005 saw the release of Oasis' sixth studio album, Don't Believe the Truth, featuring a further three compositions by Gallagher: "Love Like a Bomb" (co-written with rhythm guitarist Gem Archer), "The Meaning of Soul" and "Guess God Thinks I'm Abel".
    More Details Hide Details
  • 2004
    In 2004, Gallagher made headlines when it was revealed that he regularly paid £2000 in child support for his son Lennon Francis and daughter Molly.
    More Details Hide Details Furthermore, he criticised musician Pete Doherty, the father of Lisa Moorish's other child, for his alleged lack of child support. The relationship between the two was put under further strain, because of Doherty's heavy heroin habit and his visits to Moorish under the influence of the drug. In April 2007, it was reported that Gallagher had purchased a property in Henley-on-Thames.
  • 2001
    Gallagher's second son, Gene Gallagher, was born to Nicole Appleton on 2 July 2001.
    More Details Hide Details Liam tried to drag a photographer into a fight outside the hospital.
  • TWENTIES

  • 1997
    Gallagher married Patsy Kensit on 7 April 1997.
    More Details Hide Details However, the marriage got off to a rocky start due to various incidents reported in the tabloids. Gallagher made headlines after an incident of road rage. He allegedly leaned out of his car window, grabbed a cyclist and threw him off his bike. The cyclist was not injured and Gallagher was given a caution.
  • 1990
    He then returned to school, where he completed his last term in Spring 1990.
    More Details Hide Details He gained 4 GCSEs. Noel has said that Liam showed little interest in music until his late teens. Gallagher became confident in his ability to sing and began listening to bands like The Stone Roses, The Who, The Kinks, The Jam, T.Rex and The Beatles. In the process he forged a lifelong obsession with John Lennon; Liam would later sarcastically claim to be Lennon re-incarnated, despite being born eight years prior to Lennon's death.
