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

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - Watts The Goss -

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.
