Sheeran gets a pizza the action; Ronson gets raided
■ 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.”
