SH*T OR HIT: Kate Bosworth battles The Killers for Christmas Number One and Johnny Depp makes his musical debut

on in Entertainment

Because singing with your hair brush shouldn’t cost the Earth…

Kate Boworth and Johnny Depp

Here’s what’s been rocking the world of music over the past two weeks. As a way to remind you not to keep your laptops, iPods and other music-listening devices on charge 24/7 we tell you whether we think these tunes are sh*t or a hit. It’s a simple game: if it’s a hit turn up the speakers to 11. And if it’s sh*t, remember to turn off your charger…

Kate Bosworth is better known for her modeling and acting talents but now the pretty blonde is trying her hand at singing. The Hollywood actress is the star of Topshop’s Christmas film.

The video features Bosworth singing Winter Wonderland for Topshop’s Christmas campaign as they aim for the number one spot in the festive charts. To be honest we find the whole thing a bit boring and think that Topshop should stick to fashion rather than trying to infiltrate the charts because they’re efforts are just a bit SHIT

This week we found out some pretty random music news and had to share it with you… Iggy Pop, Patti Smith, Tom Waits, Courtney Love, Beth Orton, Shane MacGowan, Michael Stipe and Broken Social Scene are all teaming up to feature on Johnny Depp’s ‘pirate’ compilation.  The double CD A will feature a whole host of rock legends singing pirate themed songs.

The album is called Son of Rogue’s Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs and Chanteys and will be released on February 18, 2013. Surprisingly the tracks are actually pretty fun in a piratey way so we’re giving this one a HIT

Christmas is just around the corner and we loved seeing The Killers jump on board this week for the seventh year running. Their new single I Feel It In My Bones is the perfect Christmas anthem, and the video even features their former tour manager Ryan Pardley playing the role of a evil Santa. We think it’s really fun and so we’re giving it a HIT

Snoop Lion (formerly Snoop Dogg) has got a good grilling from his fans about his constant weed smoking. The rapper has never shied away from talking about his illegal habit and when asked how much he smokes during an average week, the rapper wrote in reply: “81 blunts a day x 7″, most of which he gets for “free”. We’re rather indifferent about his music but think that smoking (and more so promoting smoking to his young fans) is really uncool so this week he’s getting a SHIT

GC articles show you one of four ways (the one in bold) to live greener…

/ Be a winner (not a binner) /
/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/ Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
