TRACK OF THE WEEK Can’ t Stop The Feel­ing by Justin Tim­ber­lake

This new track from Mr JT feels like it’ s been here for­ever–it could sit hap­pily on a Spo­tify playlist of “Hits of the 70s”, an­dis­tai- lo r-made for a wed­ding disco. But it never feels cheesy, thanks to some nifty guitar lines that edge the disco groove away from par­ody, and the vo­cal pan­ning that cir­cles you like a group hugon the dance floor.

HERO OFTHEWEEK is Se lena Gomez, who doesn’ t want a squad to sup­port­heron tour. She told En­ter­tain­ment Weekly: “I’ve worked for my­w­hole ca­reer, and I’ ve al­ways wanted it to be about that. I’ve been inso many sit­u­a­tions where it’s like, ‘Oh, you’re friends with this per­son? You’ re with that per­son ?’ All this cr edi bili tys**tthatd rives me crazy. I love be­ing able to work with other artists I ad­mire, but I have a lotto do on my own be­fore I am will­ing to make it all about em­brac­ing other peo­ple .”

Not only has Rih anna re­leased a high-heel col lab with Manolo, she’s stoked to see other celebs wear­ing her shoes. J. Los ports the “9 to 5”( denim thigh-highs) in the video to Ain’ t Your M am a.Rih wrote on Ins tag ram: She wore “The 9-5”in­avideo!!! Mayyyyjor- rr !!! Ya asssss@j lo! Thanks for the sup­port! I’ m hav­ing such a f*c kin mo­ment know­ing that for­ever I have proof of a bad one like you in my de­signs!”

ZERO OF THE WEEK is singing live, ac­cord­ingto Vic­to­ria Beck ham. She ad­mit­ted her mic was turned down at some Spice Girls shows. She spoke at a Vogue event, jo king :“they used to turn it off and just let the oth­ers sing. I got the last laugh–now-my mic is well and truly on fi­nally .” She went on :“When all the other girls were be­ing fun and spon­ta­neous and jump­ing on ta­bles I was al­ways the one check­ing the ta­ble wasn’ t go­ing to col­lapse. I was al­ways the sen­si­ble one.” You’re our kinda­gal, posh.
