Pop Corner: Tove Lo runs for love while 1D and Britney are staying put
Have a looksee at our track of the week, hero of the week and zero of the week.
TRACK OF THE WEEK Thousand Miles - Tove Lo You may remember our obsession with Tove Lo thanks to Habits (Stay High) earlier this year. Thousand Miles details, here’s the twist, the distance she’d run to get her lover back. It’s a sterling piece of sad-eyed stalker-pop. What’s more exciting is the fact that she’s working with Max Martin on pieces for other artists.
HERO OF THE WEEK goes to One Direction’s Liam Payne who admitted that sometimes he gets baffled by new slang. Liam tweeted: “I feel so old with all these sayings like ‘ship’ bae and ‘no chill’ can’t keep up with the times when I was a kid saying bro was cool lol.” Nice to know that even popstars find it hard to keep up.
MEANWHILE the rest of 1D are finding life on the road tough. Louis 1D told OK! magazine, sadly, that “hotel rooms can often be lonely.” Niall Horan added: “It can be quite frustrating being stuck in a hotel. I remember in Peru – I got up, went into Louis’s room and said, ‘Right, what we doing today?’ and he goes, ‘We should go shopping.’ Then we looked out of the window. There were 10,000 people on the street outside our hotel.” Mega sadface.
ZERO OF THE WEEK is Britney, for extending her Vegas residency for two years. She explained: “The way I used to travel all around the world and do a different show every night, I’m like, ‘How did I do it?!’ Promotion is a different story, and going to a different city every day, like what I’m doing now, it’s really hard. Being based in Vegas and having one show that you keep going back to, the consistency of that is really grounding and really cool.” We’re very happy for you Brit, but we’d much rather you had a residency over *here*
