Lana Del Rey is currently outselling the entire UK Top Ten with her incredible debut album Born To Die, but the mysterious singer has admitted that she’s not usually inspired by other female artists. But luckily she does have a soft spot for the biggest Femme Fatale of them all – Britney Spears! She says, “There is something about Britney that compelled me – the way she sings and just the way she looks.”
According to Labrinth, Adele and Tinie Tempah really are hoping to work on a duet together. ”We talked about doing that, so it might just end up happening this year.” We’re secretly crossing our fingers to hear Adele rapping about being down with the freshers, but if it’s more a case of ‘Empire State Of Mind’ 2012, then that will be fine too.
Brit Award nominee and Xtra Factor presenter Olly Murs has revealed that the third single to be released from his latest album will be ‘Oh My Goodness’. The track will be available on April 1st with a new b-side – and whilst we’re not necessarily Olly’s biggest fan, we reckon it’s not that bad. Listen to ‘Oh My Goodness’ here. Trumpets ahoy.
And finally, yesterday MP! and Thing went to watch Parade in their gruelling and demanding rehearsals. We got to see a sneak preview of some brand new choreography (Thing tried to secretly film it, but put his finger over the lens by accident) and according to the band our faces lit up like children on Christmas day! A+ girls.
