Ailbhe Mal­one’s got The Satur­days on her mind

TRACK OF THE WEEK: Gen­tle­man by The Satur­days Gen­tle­man is bonkers but mainly kind of bril­liant. Writ­ten by Priscilla Re­nea, who wrote Bang Bang Bang and Who Says for Se­lena Gomez, this is like a Girls Aloud al­bum track in the best pos­si­ble way. Boast­ing a hook of ‘A gen­tle­man is so 1995/ So hard for a girl to find’, and ‘I wouldn’t marry him, not if I were you/ Cause if he’s been cheat­ing on me then he’s cheat­ing on you too’, it ’s as if The Satur­days are hav­ing the best post-work whinge drinks ever, and are about to or­der an­other round.

Louis Walsh is putting to­gether a boy­band. “It has been 12 years since I did au­di­tions for a boy­band. It’s boys over 16 from any­where, any na­tion­al­ity, but they must be pre­pared to work hard. Vo­cals are key,” says Louis. He went on, “I’m look­ing for five pop stars and I have a ma­jor record com­pany and a high-pro­file UK part­ner.” Who says there’s no glam­our any­more? Pop Cor­ner ea­gerly awaits the re­sults of the re­cruit­ment drive.

Who’s hat­ing on Mi­ley? She took to Twit­ter to be­moan the abuse she got from fans of Se­lena and Tay­lor. Miles wrote: “Ev­ery­day some­one with a Swift or Gomez in their name wishes ter­ri­ble things upon me (death is pop­u­lar). Please Smil­ers don’t ever think some­how you are sup­port­ing me by be­ing hate­ful to­wards other artists. My fans make me proud by sup­port­ing my mu­sic & ev­ery­thing I do.”

Heart of gold, and a killer hair­cut – we al­ways knew Mi­ley was our fave.

We’re pleased that in this mod­ern age we can keep up with preg­nan­cies. Rochelle Satur­days tweeted “got to sleep at 1 woke up at 3.30. #heart­burn #lively­baby oh wow!! To make it worse @Mar­v­in­Humes looks as though he’s hav­ing the best sleep!”. Per­haps the Saturbaby is prac­tis­ing dance rou­tines in utero? We ex­pect a sim­i­lar timeline from Frankie Satur­days when her bump grows big­ger.

Mi­ley – heart of gold, killer hair­cut
