We hope you haven’t just eaten. Britney Spears and Simon Cowell have been exchanging flirty tweets.
The stomach turning “twirting” all started when Simon took to Twitter to write: “I spent the day with Britney. She really is quite charming,” after filming with the new American X Factor judge.
Britney then cheekily replied: “Oh now you want to be nice! Hehe. U are quite charming yourself… today was fun !”
Ugh. However, Cowell’s Twitter charm didn’t have the same effect on Cheryl Cole, who has returned to the UK version of the show despite being axed by him from the US one (are you still with us?)
Simon tweeted: “Welcome back Cheryl”, but the former Ms Cole responded waspishly with: “I saw Simon’s tweet. I’m not doing this for him. I am doing this for Gary as he’s my friend and he asked me to do it.”
Who do Little Mix remind you of? A mini-version of All Saints? One Direction in dresses? Or is it Beyonce and Christina Aguilera? Because apparently people have been comparing the X Factor winners’ new single Wings to those two soul divas.
And the girls are quite happy with the comparison, according to music website Pop Prince (no, we’ve not heard of it either). Perrie told them:
It’s just amazing to be compared to those amazing divas, so yeah it’s really nice.”
Amazing indeed. Meanwhile Jesy expressed some nerves about the public reaction, telling the interviewer:
We hope that we surprise people with our music, as when you’re on X Factor you have to perform so many covers and when you come out of the show you have to find yourself as an artist.”
That’ll be where Matt Cardle went wrong, then. He didn’t find himself.
People have been quite hard on Tulisa of late, so it’s nice to see someone sticking up for her for a change. We just didn’t expect it to be rap superstar 50 Cent.
Fiddy has been following the former N-Dubz singer’s trials and tribulations very closely, it seems, and told reporters:
“I’m going to be over in the UK later on again in the year and I would love to meet Tulisa for dinner. She had it tough and she has also been through some (bleep) recently as well. I love how she has handled that by flipping the bird to that guy who sold her out.
“I’ve been watching and reading about Tulisa since she got the role on the UK X Factor and my girl is no wannabe. She is real, she is talented, and the sort of person I want to be creating music.”
All together now: Curtis fancies Tulisa, Curtis fancies Tulisa… etc.
How can it be possible that the first proper single from X Factor winners Little Mix is still a month away from being released? But the girls have been explaining that the reason they’ve taken so long to release new material is because they don’t want it to be naff!
Describing their new single Wings, Jesy said: “It’s a feel-good song. We want people to feel something when they listen to it. But we didn’t want to be too cheesy with the ‘Believe in yourself’ thing. There’s nothing wrong with writing songs about clubs and parties but I think it’s cool to do a song that means something.”
Unbelievably they still haven’t finished their debut album, although they have insisted there won’t be any famous guests popping up on the tracks just yet:
“We just wanted to focus on our own sound and hopefully after that… We’d love to do a collaboration.”
