AILBHE MALONEsays you too can smell like Lady Gaga

TRACK OF THE WEEK:

Red Lips Sky Ferreira.

It feels like every six months, we breath a sigh of relief and trumpet Sky Ferreira’s return to releasing music. With her debut album somewhere in the Parlophone vaults, Sky’s been working on new music with, deep breath, a guitar edge. Luckily the strings in question come via Garbage’s Shirley Manson, so its grunge with glamour. We’d advise giving the video a miss though – not least if giant spiders spook you.

Justin Bieber’s coming to terms with the paternity claims of last year. Remember? A fan said she was carrying Bieber’s baby, baby, baby – oh! (Sorry). Speaking to the Sun’s Fabulous magazine, JB reflected: “At the beginning of it all I was in Florida, away from my friends and family and I was pretty sad. I got to the point where I thought, ‘I don’t want to do this. I just want to be normal.’ It was difficult because I’d never gone through anything like that.” Luckily, his mentor had some words of wisdom. “Usher was like, ‘Prepare to have this for the rest of your career because it’s not going to stop.’ He’s gone through some stuff, and most artists go through their fair share of bull. That was just my first time.”

Our keen ear for teenage romance hasn’t failed us this time . . . as we’re pleased to report that Demi Lovato and Niall Horan have been in contact. In a radio interview, Horan admitted that they had been speaking and that she was”really nice”. However, he’s coy with the deets “we’ve spoken alright, yeah. So, I got in contact with her, she’s really nice. Um, I don’t know what’s going to happen.” We’re happy to offer Pop Corner up for engagement notices, if you need it guys?

It feels like years since murmurings of Lady Gaga’s perfume, and we’re glad to say that she didn’t follow her initial inkling to create a scene of “sweat and semen”. Instead, Fame will be the first ever black eau de parfum, with “tears of Belladonna, crushed heart of Tiger Orchidea with a black veil of incense, pulverized apricot and the combinative essences of saffron and honey drops”. And everyone can partake, says Gaga. “My perfume was designed for women, but a lot of my gay friends wear it.”
