I’m still a little confused by this ‘set a musician up with a celebrity to ensure success’ trend that’s restarted recently. A throwback to the Golden Age of Hollywood and such stars as Tab Hunter and Rock Hudson, the PR trick was usually used to keep homosexuality a secret. It now seems to be used to create buzz around failing or aspiring musicians, but does it work? Justin Bieber’s successive comeback didn’t include a ‘model’ girlfriend, nor did Chris Brown’s. Hell, Sam Smith hasn’t even been spotted with a girl!
On completely unrelated terms, Zayn Malik, former member of the boyband One Direction, and reality star and model Gigi Hadid were spotted cuddling and kissing after a romantic night-out in West Hollywood. Apparently Malik, 23, has a new single out.
Who’d have thought?
