Bad Blood between Miley and T Swift could make for some interesting VMAs viewing, Tate has a stirring autumn lined up for us and be sure to pop down to the pop gallery of Charles Pétillon.

Swift Exit?

If you’re back from Carnival in time, the MTV VMAs, aired this Monday (8pm, LDN), are set to be the best in ages.

The quality and spend on videos has been rising recently with some now being produced for in excess of $1m. Most notably, current pop queen Taylor Swift’s celeb-packed, Tarantino-esque, Bad Blood. A few years ago Taylor was subjected to an outburst from Kanye after he notoriously stormed the stage. Miley Cyrus has been chosen as the host of this year's awards despite being ridiculed in 2013 for being too suggestive with a foam accessory and Robin Thicke,

So the real excitement on Monday could be the bad blood between the show host and, almost certain winner, Taylor Swift over critical comments made by Miley about the glamorisation of violence in er, Bad Blood.

Keeping up? Stay Tuned.

Sweet Art

Our favourite UK Art institution, the Tate has a blockbuster programme lined up this Autumn.
At Modern, a review of how Pop Art was not just an american, but actually also a global phenomenon is followed by a (literally) moving retrospective of the great Alexander Calder.
While at Britain, an exhibition by a man widely recognised to be our greatest living painter, Frank Auerbach. Mr Auerbach is still pulling no punches at 84.

Heartbeat by Charles Pétillon, Covent Garden

The latest artwork to grace the buzzing South Hall of Covent Garden is a truly beautiful installation by Charles Pétillon.

Heartbeat was created by the French Artist to symbolise the movement and history of the area and has really brought to life the iconic building in the West End. The lighting feature of the artwork begins daily at 7pm, in which you can really capture and admire both the simplicity and the thought process that has gone into the sculpture.

A pop-up gallery has also been opened in the plaza, allowing you to see other work from Charles Pétillon and view a short film about the installation.

Heartbeat will be open to the public daily until the 27th September.
