Prince's new album features a duet with Rita Ora.
The "Purple Rain" hitmaker gave one lucky reporter from the Minneapolis Star Tribune a preview of his as yet untitled upcoming album, which is expected to be released later this year and includes a "rare rap song" he recorded with the British pop sensation. Prince went on to reveal he wants to release the track, described as "aggressive and menacing," as soon as possible for it to stay current because "time is money" for celebrities like Rita who could make cash "walking out of the house wearing a certain kind of makeup or sunglasses."
Lily Allen is planning to apologize to Rita Ora and models Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn over songs on her new album.
The "Hard Out Here" hitmaker, who is about to release her new record Sheezus, appears to hit out at the stars by joking about celebrities who attend corporate events. "I still need to write letters to Rita Ora and Cara Delevingne. The song where I appear to slag off Rita and Jourdan is very much the same premise as Cheryl Tweedy. It's not about them, it's about the idea of them," she said, according to The Daily Mail.
Meanwhile, the 28-year-old star, who has made her comeback after a four-year hiatus, was copied into harsh emails about her new material from a focus group when her record label carried out market research for her new album: "I accidentally got copied in on a whole bunch of it and reading it was one of the most horrible moments of my life. They don't actually tell the people what it is that they're listening to. So a lot of it was just people going, 'Is this Lily Allen? It f****ng is Lily Allen', 'If this is her I thought she'd ####### retired, the stupid ****!'"
The Wanted have confirmed that Justin Bieber will appear on their new album.
The "All Time Low" hitmakers have revealed the follow-up to 2011's Battleground will feature a collaboration with the "Baby" singer, along with fellow Brit Rita Ora and many other big names. When asked who they have teamed up with for their new material, member Max George told website MTV UK, "[Producer] Dr. Luke, Rita Ora, Nasri who does a lot of Bieber's stuff and Justin himself."
