I RiRi don’t want to be pals, Katy!
THE DEAL WITH THE REAL SEAL He’s NOT an Eazy lover for Lana... George Michael was the man for Galantis
He Seal-ed the deal with Heidi Klum in 2005, enjoying sevenyears of wedded bliss.
But following their surprise split the singer tells me he no longer believes in marriage: “You should be scared of it. I very much believe two people should be together.
“I’m very much a romantic. But marriage, the institution of it, is like an outdated contract. It doesn’t work in today’s society. Look at the statistics. It’s a harsh reality. It’s absurd. The institution of ‘death do us part’, it’s like... bloody hell.”
The 54-year-old says: “I’m single, whatever that means. Sure, I have people I see. I do have a lot of love in my life now and that’s very fulfilling.”
The couple were famous for their outrageous Halloween parties. But Seal says: “That wasn’t my idea, that was more my ex’s... charade. I was a team player but that wasn’t my thing.”
He also said the reason he appeared on America’s Got Talent with judge Heidi, 44, last month was for their four kids.
He says: “Heidi and I are functional, we’ve got no choice, we’ve got four kids. I went on the show for them.”
Seal is back with a new album of modern classics titled Standards, released on November 10. MERCURY RISING Idris and Halina and right, Stormzy BEST BUDS RiRi and Katy Galantis have writted tunes for Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears and Madonna and they tell me the late George Michael had also been in touch.
The pop icon died on Christmas Day last year aged 53. Frontman Christian Karlsson says: “He reached out to us LANA Del Rey has split from rapper and record producer love G EAZY – and he has already started dating singer HALSEY.
Not only has the American beauty had to face the end of her romance, she’s also been dumped from a collab she was planning with her now ex.
G Eazy replaced Lana’s vocals with, yep, you’ve got it, Halsey.
A source said: “G Eazy initially begged Lana to be the singer on his new song Him and I but then they split and he changed his mind.
“Instead he teamed up with Halsey on the song and he’s now started dating her.”
Given G Eazy’s ladies’ man reputation, I reckon Lana had a lucky escape.
And as for the song, it’s not as if the diva doesn’t have enough hits of her own. I’m sure she’ll bounce back in no time.
The Mercurys threw an impressive bash, with Sampha winning the prestigious prize for his debut album Process.
But Idris Elba had an awkward run-in with Stormzy after accidentally calling him Skepta on stage. A fellow partygoer tells me: “Stormzy was not impressed and asked Idris how he could have got it wrong. They were pretty frosty with each other and a lot of the producers were trying to defuse the tension.”
When I bumped into Idris, 45, he didn’t seem bothered and kept gushing about his girlfriend Sabrina Dhowre – a Canadian beauty queen.
He tells me: “I’m very happy, I’m having a great time at the moment.
She is incredible, she’s my girl.”
once but it never actually happened. It was in 2003, it’s a real shame it didn’t happen. He’s incredible.”
The band’s new album Aviary is out now. And they are already planning their next album while they tour at the same time. Respect.
