Ailbhe Mal­one urges Bey­oncé to push that sec­ond al­bum out

TRACK OF THE WEEK: Just Desserts Ma­rina and the Di­a­monds/Charli XCX Imag­ine a Ma­rina and Charli track. This will tick all the boxes in your mind. Sug­ary sweet with a dis­con­nected core, like a Cor­netto miss­ing its choco­late cen­tre, it’s a tale of a boyfriend done wrong with the cho­rus of “karma came around like I knew it would” driv­ing home the mes­sage.

There’s no airs and graces with Bey­oncé, who told a press con­fer­ence, “I feel this [she means star­dom] is tem­po­rary and my pub­lic life when I’m per­form­ing on stage is just a few hours of the day. The rest of the day I’m with my fam­ily, I’m chang­ing di­a­pers and I’m with my mother who re­minds me, ‘Girl, you are not a Queen.’ So it’s good to have some bal­ance.” She went on, “def­i­nitely I would like to have more chil­dren. Mother­hood has changed ev­ery­thing. You see things a bit dif­fer­ently af­ter you give birth and my big­gest job now is to pro­tect my child.” We’d say your sec­ond big­gest job is to put out that al­bum you’ve been teas­ing, Bey­oncé. But what do we know?

There’s other news in Celebrity Baby land! Frankie Satur­days is preggo. She fol­lowed in the steps of band­mate Rochelle and tweeted “Some big news from me to­day! Wayne and I are hav­ing a baby. We are both so happy and can’t wait for his or her ar­rival!” Mol­lie Satur­days saw things dif­fer­ently, how­ever, and is al­ready plan­ning a su­per­group, tweet­ing: “Soooo un­be­liev­ably ex­cited for @FrankieTheSats and Wayney! Bring on the baba! Sats Ju­niors is re­ally com­ing to­gether xxx”. Per­haps they could be called the Sun­days?

Mean­while, Nicki Mi­naj isn’t com­mit­ting to any mini-Mi­naj’s just yet. She told Marie Claire mag­a­zine “In five years, per­haps, I’d like to have chil­dren. I love chil­dren – I’m a chil­dren freak. I’d like two, maybe three.” She con­tin­ued, “I can’t pre­dict my life, but there’s al­ways more left to achieve. More al­bums, out­do­ing your own ex­pec­ta­tions”. Well, no­body would have ex­pected Nicki to have popped up on a Carly Rae Jepsen remix, would they?

Bey­oncé: baby­li­cious
