TRACK OF THE WEEK

Thou­sand Miles Tove Lo You may re­mem­ber our ob­ses­sion with Tove Lo thanks to Habits (Stay High) ear­lier this year. Thou­sand

Miles de­tails, here’s the twist, the dis­tance she’d run to get her lover back. It’s a ster­ling piece of sad-eyed stalker-pop. What’s more ex­cit­ing is the fact that she’s work­ing with Max Martin on pieces for other artists.

HERO OF THE WEEK goes to One Di­rec­tion’s Liam Payne who ad­mit­ted that some­times he gets baf­fled by new slang. Liam tweeted: “I feel so old with all th­ese say­ings like ‘ship’ bae and ‘no chill’ can’t keep up with the times when I was a kid say­ing bro was cool lol.” Nice to know that even pop­stars find it hard to keep up.

MEAN­WHILE the rest of 1D are find­ing life on the road tough. Louis 1D told OK! mag­a­zine, sadly, that “ho­tel rooms can of­ten be lonely”. Niall Horan added: “It can be quite frus­trat­ing be­ing stuck in a ho­tel. I re­mem­ber in Peru – I got up, went into Louis’s room and said, ‘Right, what we do­ing to­day?’ and he goes, ‘We should go shop­ping.’ Then we looked out of the win­dow. There were 10,000 peo­ple on the street out­side our ho­tel.” Mega sad­face.

ZERO OF THE WEEK is Brit­ney, for ex­tend­ing her Ve­gas res­i­dency for two years. She ex­plained: “The way I used to travel all around the world and do a dif­fer­ent show ev­ery night, I’m like, ‘How did I do it?!’ Pro­mo­tion is a dif­fer­ent story, and go­ing to a dif­fer­ent city ev­ery day, like what I’m do­ing now, it’s re­ally hard. Be­ing based in Ve­gas and hav­ing one show that you keep go­ing back to, the con­sis­tency of that is re­ally ground­ing and re­ally cool.” We’re very happy for you Brit, but we’d much rather you had a res­i­dency over here.
