TRACK OF THE WEEK The Flute Petite Meller

– Bonkers French pop­star Petite Meller is one of our faves, and The Flute is no ex­cep­tion. There’s a flute hook that is chirpy and peppy, slightly in­tel­li­gi­ble lyrics, and a bang­ing cho­rus. I mean, at the end of the day, what more do you want?

Hero of the week

Mol­lie from the Satur­days, who is about to re­lease a solo al­bum. She told Dig­i­tal Spy: “It is a bit of a heart­break al­bum. There are a lot of songs about that re­la­tion­ship, but they’re all com­ing in at dif­fer­ent an­gles. Some of them are a lot more pos­i­tive, while oth­ers are sad. But I guess a lot of it is heartache, but that’s where I’ve been over the last few months.”

She went on: “I’ve been sin­gle and it gives you that time to re­flect on re­la­tion­ships you’ve had in the past. I’ve really learnt through do­ing this that I’m so much bet­ter at writ­ing songs that are about ac­tual things I’m go­ing through, rather than try­ing to write a sce­nario that has never hap­pened to me.”

Mean­while, Gaga con­tin­ues her act­ing streak. She’s go­ing to star in Bradley Cooper’s re­make of A Star is Born. Never one to shy away from a hash­tag, she tweeted: “”I’m elated to be di­rected by & star­ring w/Bradley in this project. He’s a bril­liant vi­sion­ary artist. #AS­tarIsBorn #A Star Is Born Cooper Ga ga .”

Zero of the week is Adele, who tear­fully had to can­cel a show in Amer­ica due to a cold. She posted a video to In­sta­gram, ex­plain­ing.”I’ve had a cold for a cou­ple of days and I’ve been push­ing through it, and I did my show last night and I loved it – but I pushed too hard, and my cold has got the bet­ter of me. As you can hear, even if I did the show, it wouldn’t be very good. I’m really, really, really, really sorry to let any­one down. I’ve en­joyed my tour so much and can­celling shows has not been some­thing that I want to do.”
