Pop Corner: Everything for a kitchen disco at a house party
Perrie Edwards of Little Mix, Petite Meller and Ariana Grande
Track of the week: Baby Love by Petite Meller
Oh what a banger this is! We are 100 per cent here for the French songstress. Imagine Stacey Q (YouTube Two of Hearts) remixed by Tiesto. In shorthand, that’s a breathy female vocal hook, with rave synths and a soaring middle eight. In even shorter shorthand? An instant kitchen disco at a house party.
Hero of the week is Little Mix’s Perrie, who had stood up for wearing comfy clothes watching TV. She told Yahoo, “We all love a bit of fake but at the same time you have to embrace who you are and be natural. If you can’t be with someone in a pair of jeans with a bowl of popcorn on your lap, looking like crap, what’s the point? I couldn’t bear that.”
Petite Meller: Baby Love
She expanded on her point in another interview, when she told the BBC she’s proud that Little Mix push against pressure to dress sexily. She said, “We’re not about that anyway. We’re in our own lane, we know what we stand for. We want to inspire people. If we’re a bit sexy, we’re a bit sexy. If we’re not, we don’t really care. We don’t feel like we have to have really skimpy outfits. We do whatever the heck we want.”
Zero of the week is Ariana Grande for crimes against doughnuts.
Video footage leaked last week of Ari appearing to lick some doughnuts in a cake shop, while a member of staff had stepped out. Ariana has since uploaded a YouTube apology, explaining that, “I feel like seeing a video of yourself behaving poorly, that you had no idea was taken, is such a rude awakening. It’s like you don’t know what to do. I was so disgusted with myself.” She went on, “I reacted in a way that I feel like wasn’t necessary, to say the least. Also it just wasn’t me at all.” Now click here: To view Ariana Grande’s video apology in full http://bit.ly/1LV6DvX
