OLIVIA RODRIGO IS WORKING ON AN ALBUM AND HER HOMEWORK – (02/05/2021)
Olivia Rodrigo recently chatted with Nylon about the success of her first single and the possibility of a debut album.
Three weeks after the release of “Drivers License,” the 17-year-old singer told the magazine, “My life has completely shifted within such a short period of time. And yet, everything is the same, and I’m still just spending every day in my room writing songs and doing homework.”
Rodrigo has about eight songs written that she’s happy with and says she already has a vision for her eventual album. Rodrigo revealed, “I want it to be super versatile. My dream is to have it be an intersection between mainstream pop, folk music, and alternative rock. I love the songwriting and the lyricism and the melodies of folk music. I love the tonality of alt-rock. Obviously, I’m obsessed with pop and pop artists. So I’m going to try and take all of my sort of influences and inspirations and kind of make something that I like.”
However, an album isn’t her only goal for 2021. She’s also planning to graduate from high school this year.
THE WEEKND WILL KEEP HIS HALFTIME SHOW PERFORMANCE ‘PG-13’ – (02/05/2021)
The Weeknd has opened up about his upcoming Super Bowl Halftime Show on Sunday (February 7th). The singer-songwriter told Variety that he will keep his performance “PG-13.” He explained, “I definitely want to be respectful to the viewers at home. I will still incorporate some of the storyline [from the videos]—it’s a very cohesive story I’m telling throughout this year, so the story will continue, but we definitely will keep it PG for the families. I’ll do my best.”
He continued, “I’m not gonna tell you anything else because you’ll have to watch on Sunday.” When asked if he will address “the recent uprisings in Black communities” in his performance, He said, “I don’t like to spoon-feed the audience, hopefully they can come up with some of their own theories and conclusions for what the show is saying and the story I’m telling with the performance.”
Meanwhile, TMZ has reported that The Weeknd won’t have any guests during his Halftime performance.
GIGI HADID OPENS UP ABOUT TERRIFYING HOME BIRTH – (02/05/2021)
Gigi Hadid welcomed her daughter Khai at her home in Bucks County, Pennsylvania in September. It wasn’t picture perfect, she tells Vogue, in a March cover story. The 25-year-old model opted to do a home birth when she discovered that her mom Yolanda Hadid, and sister, Bella Hadid, could not be present if she gave birth at a hospital in Manhattan due to COVID restrictions.
She and boyfriend Zayn Malik watched “The Business of Being Born” documentary together, and discovered they could do it.
“I had to dig deep,” Gigi said of when the time came to deliver her first child in a blow-up bath in her bedroom. “I knew it was going to be the craziest pain in my life, but you have to surrender to it and be like, ‘This is what it is.’ I loved that.”
Her mom and midwife coached her. Gigi said she knew Zayn, 28, and Bella, 24, were “proud” of her, but “at certain points I saw each of them in terror.”
Gigi admitted, “Z and I looked at each other and were like, ‘We can have some time before we do that again.”

BABY NO. 2 FOR KHLOE KARDASHIAN AND TRISTAN THOMPSON? – (02/05/2021)
Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson have been through a lot: two major cheating scandals, co-parenting True through a pandemic and now, a bicoastal lifestyle with Tristan based in Boston, and Khloe in L.A.
Now, they’re planning on a happy new chapter: a second child. According to a sneak peek of an upcoming episode to Keeping Up With the Kardashians, both Tristan and Khloe are in.
“Kim, every time I post a video of True, she DMs me and she’s like, ‘She can’t play by herself her whole life,'” Khloe tells Tristan of her sister, Kim Kardashian West.
Khloe said: [“In my head, when I was going to have kids, I never, ever imagined having an only child. Especially being on quarantine with her, I felt bad. She had no friends. She had nobody. They were isolated even from each other (True’s cousins) for so long. I don’t know. True’s getting older and I just feel like it’s now time to have another kid.”’]
Tristan said: “Yep. Mmmhmm. That’s what I like to hear.”
“We have to line it up with your schedule, so I can make embryos with my frozen eggs,” she tells her beau, who responds, “I’m all for it.”
“I think I’m ready to do the whole pregnancy thing again,” Khloe says. “This process might take time. I have no idea. So I think [we] start the process, at least be prepared.”
He wants not just one more, but two more. “I’ve always wanted four kids, so I have Prince and True,” he says of his 4-year-old son from a previous relationship and his daughter with Khloe. “Two down, two more to go.”
