Ailbhe Malone just can’t wait for Satur­days to come

TRACK OF THE WEEK:

Start A Riot by Jetta Liver­pudlian singer Jetta cut her teeth singing back-up for Paloma Faith and Cee-Lo Green (not at the same time), so it’s fair to say that she's got a set of lungs on her. Her sound is more Florence than french horns though – es­pe­cially in de­but sin­gle Start A Riot. Imag­ine the spark­i­ness of Pink, mixed with the rab­ble-rous­ing vo­cals of Emeli Sandé. And, for the record, we mean Heaven- era Sandé, not Next To Me.

The Satur­days aren’t do­ing the best job of sell­ing their re­al­ity show Chas­ing the Satur­days. Speak­ing to the Sun, Una Satur­days ex­plained: “I can't un­der­stand how any­one will find us in­ter­est­ing - it's just us.” She gave it a bit more welly then, go­ing on to say “but lots of peo­ple want to be pop stars, so it will show what life is like in a pop group, how we have bad days and get up­set. Yet I think our friend­ship shines through.” Mol­lie Satur­days was more on mes­sage, push­ing the close­ness of the group. “When we sat in the first meet­ing with E! pitch­ing the idea of the show, we told them we were like a fam­ily and really got on. I think that’s what peo­ple want to see – not five girls bitch­ing. They fol­lowed us for three months and were sur­prised how close we were. It’s us against the world, not against each other.” View­ing party round ours?

Our num­ber-one favourite celebrity baby has started to talk! Yes, that’s right - Blue Ivy speaks! Bey­oncé told the NFL Su­per­bowl Live pro­gram that “my hus­band (she means Jay-Z) is in­cred­i­ble, he’s so sup­port­ive. And my daugh­ter is . . . I mean, when I wake up in the morn­ing, the best thing in the world is see­ing her face.” Bey­oncé went on: “She’s start­ing to talk. It’s just such a beau­ti­ful time in my life to have a child and ev­ery day see some­thing new and see her learn some­thing new.” Is it too soon to start plan­ning a su­per-group?
