Another long week - and not everyone has made it through unscathed. For every story of a British artist making it big stateside (congratulations Cher Lloyd) there's been flops, delay and gay sex scandals-a-plenty.
Well, OK, just the one gay sex scandal - and even that one has been strongly denied.
Muse fans were dealt a blow this week with the news that The 2nd Law had been delayed, and if a certain member of One Direction was hoping to listen to the album he may not get a chance. Louis Tomlinson of the X Factor boyband revealed the sound of screaming fans was turning him deaf. It's a tough old life.
So check out the losers of the week. We hope to bring you nothing but good news over the next seven days...
