TRACK OF THE WEEK

Ch­eryl – I Don’t Care Open­ing with “wak­ing up like an an­i­mal, di­ag­o­nal, in a cold and empty bed”, you can tell that Ch­eryl (no sur­name now) means business. She swears in the cho­rus (amaz­ing), the back­ing track has a

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun vibe (amaz­ing), and the song was co-writ­ten by Bon­nie McKee, who also wrote

Teenage Dream (amaz­ing). So yeah, we’re big fans. If you ever won­dered how

Lady Gaga spends her spare time, we have the an­swer. In a chat with Red­dit, Gaga said: “I’m re­ally into heal­ing, med­i­ta­tion, and help­ing to take care of those around me. When I’m not work­ing I’m re­ally a tra­di­tional Ital­ian girl at heart. I like to cook, keep ev­ery­one in a peace­ful place, and re­flect on the ways I can spread love with ev­ery in­ven­tion.” So now you know. HERO OF THE WEEK Se­lena Gomez, for grow­ing up. Se­lena told Into the Gloss: “It’s been such a tran­si­tional year for me – I moved out of my par­ents’ house this year and into my own place.” She went on: “The older I get, the prouder I am to be a woman in this in­dus­try. When I was younger and run­ning around all the time on tour, I don’t think I took the time to no­tice how be­ing a woman in my po­si­tion is re­ally a gift.”

ZERO OF THE WEEK

Ja­son Derulo, who broke up with Jordin Sparks over the phone. Derulo ex­plained dur­ing a ra­dio in­ter­view that he wasn’t around to break the news in per­son. He added: “Ev­ery re­la­tion­ship has its ups and downs and you know, when you start hav­ing more downs than ups, you know, you gotta take a look at your re­la­tion­ship and be like, you know, ‘Is this some­thing that I’m sup­posed to be do­ing . . .?” Move on­wards and up­wards, Jordin.
