Sweet

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

No­rah Jones The dish: The end of Jones’ lat­est re­la­tion­ship has put her in such a bro­ken­hearted, venge­ful mood she imag­ines mur­der­ing her part­ner’s new lover. Lyrics: “Oh Miriam, that’s such a pretty name/and I’ll keep say­ing it un­til you die/ Mariam, you know you done me wrong/ I’m gonna smile when you say good­bye/ You know you done me wrong/I’m go­ing to smile when I take your life.” Tar­get: Her former part­ner’s new girl­friend, Miriam (although Jones has not con­firmed this is the woman’s real name).

Katy Perry The dish: Perry’s new auto-bi­o­graph­i­cal tale deals with her di­vorce from co­me­dian Rus­sell Brand, but in the lyrics she says she has landed on her feet. You knew she would (and se­ri­ously, did any­body re­ally expect that mar­riage to last?). Lyrics: “I wish I knew then what I know now/I wouldn’t dive in/I wouldn’t bow down/Grav­ity hurts/You made it so sweet/Till I woke up on/On the con­crete.” Tar­get: Rus­sell Brand.

Kath­leen Ed­wards The dish: A wist­ful lament about her mar­riage to mu­si­cian/pro­ducer Colin Cripps. Lyrics: “Look­ing back it was such a dumb idea/Five girls in the same­coloured dress/Book a hon­ey­moon and find your­self think­ing/My life is a per­fect mess.” Tar­get: Ex-hus­band Colin Cripps.

Pink The dish: The tem­po­rary split be­tween Pink and her hus­band, motocross star Carey Hart. They got back together and he even ap­pears in the video. Lyrics: “I guess I just lost my hus­band/I don’t know where he went/So I’m gonna drink my money/I’m not gonna pay his rent.” Tar­get: Carey Hart.
