TRACK OF THE WEEK

21st Cen­tury Girl by Wil­low Smith. She’s back! She’s com­ing to Dublin next week with Bieber! And here’s sec­ond sin­gle! And it’s, erm, okay. Spout­ing on about how “dan­ger is beauty” and how she likes to “rock the beat”, our Wil­low does her best Ke$ha im­pres­sion – with mixed re­sults. Ob­vi­ously

Whip My Hair Part 2 was never go­ing to hap­pen, but

21st Cen­tury Girl has more than a touch of “will this do?” about it. But hey, what do we know? It’ll prob­a­bly be our ring tone this time next week. Wi

As Bey­oncé is grap­pling with ox­tail, Christina Aguil­era is out rais­ing trou­ble. The Dirty singer was re­cently ar­rested for pub­lic in­tox­i­ca­tion af­ter a Hol­ly­wood sher­iff pulled over the car her boyfriend was driv­ing.
