Alibhe Malone is thrilled for Marvin and Rochelle

TRACK OF THE WEEK: Don’t Save Me by Haim We’re stoked to see Haim movin’ on up, and their new sin­gle, Don’t Save Me, is their best since For­ever. The three sis­ters pout their way through the video for the track, and in­clude some amaz­ing . . . Baby One More Time vis­ual ref­er­ences. It’s not all long hair and lip­stick though, lead singer Danielle chan­nels Ste­vie Nicks, while Este and Alana chime in with back­ing vo­cals. We dare you not to be hum­ming the “take me back, t-t-t-ake me back” hook within two lis­tens. See Re­volver, P32

In this week’s most ex­cit­ing news, Marvin JLS and Rochelle Satur­days are about to start a fam­ily! The re­cent­ly­mar­ried pair took to Twit­ter to ex­press their ex­cite­ment, with Roch tweet­ing: “I wanted to be the first to tell you . . . we have some ex­cit­ing news to share! Marvin and I could NOT be more thrilled to an­nounce that we are ex­pect­ing our first child mid next year. We have al­ways dreamt of be­ing par­ents and the news is the best early Christ­mas present we could have asked for. I know Marvin is go­ing to be a great dad and we’re so ex­cited to start a fam­ily.” Marvin chimed in: “Baby is due mid­dle of next year and all is great!! We want to say thank you to ev­ery­one for their love and sup­port . . . it means so much to us!!! We are over the moon.” Amaz­ing.

Sec­ond place goes to Bey­oncé (that’s the first time we’ve ever writ­ten that sen­tence), who has an­nounced that she’s go­ing to be di­rect­ing a doc­u­men­tary based on her own life. Due to air in Fe­bru­ary 2013, the film will in­clude home movies, in­for­ma­tion about her child­hood, and fo­cus on when Bey­oncé de­cided to build her own com­pany, Park­wood En­ter­tain­ment. Bey­oncé re­leased a state­ment say­ing: “Some of my favourite shows are on HBO, so I am ex­cited that my film will be part of its bold pro­gram­ming. This film was so per­sonal to me, it had to have the right home.”
