Demi Lovato bounces back from rock bottom
TRACK OF THE WEEK Camila Cabello - Havana Who knew a mid-tempo song with a trumpet solo could be so damn sexy? Part of it is down to the sultry alto vocals by Camilla (formerly of Fifth Harmony) and part of it is down to how she shrugs off her love interest as a summer fling. Yeah, it was fun, she sings, but I’ve gotta go now. “I knew it when I met him/ I loved him when I left him.” PS: wondering why that trumpet hook is so catchy? It’s because Pharrell has a songwriting credit.
HERO OF THE WEEK is Demi Lovato, who opened up to Jonathan Ross about her decision to get sober. “I knew that I had a lot of life ahead of me but one of the main reasons of getting sober was so that I could be around my little sister. My mom and dad said I couldn’t be around her if I was doing stuff.”
She continued: “This time I knew … I had hit rock bottom and I just needed to do this for myself. I went through some tough times and went to treatment for some struggles that I had, and now I’ve come out the other side. I had family and really close friends and my manager – they all were by my side through everything. My fans, too, I feel they gave me a reason to live and I’m forever grateful. So I got the help I needed and now I co-own a treatment centre.”
SWIFT REPLACEMENT Here’s a nice vignette from the world of pop. Cardi B (left) celebrated her No 1 with flowers from the person she knocked from the top spot: Taylor Swift. Cardi wrote on Instagram: “Sooo beautiful and lovely .Thank you @taylorswift for the flowers, and I freaking love your music”
ZERO OF THE WEEK is Nick Jonas, who overshared big time to BuzzFeed. “Knowing that people are having sex to my music is the best thing in the world,” he said. “I just require a commission by way of naming the child after me. Nicholas, Nick, Nikki, Nicolette. That should be the exchange.”
