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.

He roof the week is K es ha, whowrote anes­say­forLenny about her new sin­gle .“I have chan­neled my feel­ings of se­vere hope­less­nes­sand de­pres­sion, I’ ve over­come ob­sta­cles, and I have found strength in my­self even when it felt out of reach .” Shewen­ton:“This songis­about com­ingtofeel em­pa­thy­for some­one else even if they hurt youorscareyou. 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.”
