TRACKOFTHEWEEK Kesha- Praying Enough time has been given to K es ha’ s ongoing legal battles (especially in this column ), and with a limited word count, we want to focus on this breathtaking track. Imagine having the grace and strength to wish peace upon yourenemy, tosing“I’mproud of whoIam”; consider the restraint to hold back on production but not drop into moody sparseness and thetalenttohold thathighnotein the bridge. It’s acompanion piece to De mi Lo vat o’ s Skyscraper, and that’soneofthe highest compliments we ever give.

It’sasongabout learningtobe proud of the person you are even during low moments whenyou feelalone. It’salso about hoping everyone, even someone who hurt you, can heal .”
Meanwhile, Ed Sheer an told Q that he would be into doing a biopic .“I want to have an 8 Mile moment, but 8 Mile meets NottingHill. Notgrittylike Detroit but, like, Ipswich. I’vegotloadsof songs about Ipswich that haven’ t come out so I could make a soundtrack.”
Zero of the week are people who doubt her friend ships, according to L or de. She tweeted: “I’ ve always found people’ s perception of this‘ squad’ idea frustrating; it was never some exclusive club or secret society, but a wide circle of people, some of whom I know, and some who I’ ve never met. I want to say thatTaylorhas beentherefor me in all my dark and light moments these past five years, all of them. I feel truly terrible that it would ever seem like I wasn’ t faith fully herperson.”
