Se­lena’s slinky, Kelly’s ballsy, and Bieber’s not in­tim­i­dated

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - STUBS -

Track of the week: Good

for You by Se­lena Gomez

Se­lena’s back with a su­per slinky jam. The track’s all about dress­ing up for your love in­ter­est, with Se­lena com­par­ing her­self with all sorts of lux­ury goods, and promis­ing to “syn­co­pate my skin to how you’re breath­ing”. In some­one else’s hands, that line could come across cringe, but not here. It’s grown-up in the right way: re­laxed and con­fi­dent. 10/10 Se­lena.

Hero of the week:

Kelly Clark­son, who has stopped car­ing about the opin­ions of oth­ers. She told Dig­i­tal Spy that “if you’re con­fi­dent and ballsy, you’re a bitch . . . if I were a man it would be con­sid­ered bold and con­fi­dent. It’s not, un­for­tu­nately, if you’re a woman. That hasn’t changed – it’s still the same as it was in the fifties and that’s how it was when I was 19. The dif­fer­ence be­tween that and now is that I just don’t give a shit any­more.”

Re­ally ridicu­lously good­look­ing news of the week:

Justin Bieber will be in the new Zoolan­der movie. Justin told

Women’s Wear Daily. “I start the movie off. [I’m] the first thing you see in the movie, which is pretty cool. I do this whole, like, park­our se­quence. I’ve never re­ally done some­thing like that be­fore. I didn’t ex­pect Ben [Stiller] to be so hands on . . . It was re­ally cool to have him di­rect me in such a non­threat­en­ing way. I wasn’t in­tim­i­dated at all.”

Zero of the week:

mix­ing busi­ness with plea­sure. Rita Ora (above) told Marie Claire about why she and Calvin Harris broke up. “I was at that point in my re­la­tion­ship where I felt he could do no wrong. I thought he had my back and that he’d never steer me wrong.”

How­ever, she went on, things took a turn. “But then I

Will Never Let You Down came out, and ev­ery­thing started to go a bit weird. I don’t know if it was be­cause busi­ness was mixed with per­sonal or what.”
