■ Track of the week: I Re­ally Like You– Carly Rae Jepsen Spring has come and CRJ is

here to prove it. I Re­ally Like

You is fizzy and shiny and chan­nels the jumpy feel­ing you get in your tummy when you have a crush. The cho­rus shim­mers and could be as eas­ily sung with your best friend and a hair­brush as it could be sung across a dance floor. Also, it is 3 min­utes 30 sec­onds long aka the em­pir­i­cal best length for a pop song. Ba­si­cally per­fect.

■ Hero of the week is Ed Sheeran, who told Cap­i­tal FM that he had been show­ing Tay­lor Swift the im­por­tance of low-cost pizza. “I just in­tro­duced her to Pizza Ex­press! I was like, ‘if you’re go­ing to get any pizza you get a calabrese.’ I got it and she said it was the best pizza she’s ever had in her life and I got suited up and walked here and turned up like a boss.”

■ Ze­ros of the week are the po­lice who broke up Mark Ron­son’s party. Tay­lor Swift, who was there, told BBC R1 that she pan­icked. “That made us feel so cool. We had to hide in a bath­room. I grabbed Ed and I was like, ‘Come here, come with me.’ Who would have thought that I was the one who knew how to get go­ing? He [re­fer­ring to Hozier, who was also at the bash] is a tall dude and to see him stand­ing be­hind a door is an odd sight . . . A lot of weird things hap­pened that night.”

■ Zayn Ma­lik news Zayn’s got a solo track com­ing out, ac­cord­ing to the Sun. Pro­ducer Naughty Boy said 1D fans had noth­ing to fear. “This is just like a side gig and I don’t think there is any­thing wrong with it. It’s a good time for Zayn to show­case what he re­ally can do.”
