HIS love of pranks is legendary, but Lewis Capaldi is the latest star to take up the sport.
We can report that the “Someone You Loved” hitmaker swapped Stella’s neck before the concert for sweaty exercises.
The Scottish singer’s new rider includes space for his £3,000 Peloton exercise bike in his dressing room backstage so he can work out before going on stage to burn calories.
A source said: “Lewis loves pumping blood before going on stage and has taken the Peloton on the road several times. He loves it.”
Lewis is gearing up to release the music from his long-awaited second album in the fall, but for now, he’s holding the ticks on the sound.
Speaking at the Lytham Festival, he told fans that he was busy, uh, having fun: “I have to apologize.
“We were supposed to play new music at this concert, but I’m a lazy asshole and didn’t do anything.
“I spent most of my time fucking furiously. So I don’t have new music yet, but there will be.
“I was worried that everyone would forget about me due to lockdown and no one would be here tonight so it’s great to see so many of you.”
He may be pedaling before shows these days, but according to his buddy Yungblood, Lewis still enjoys drinking after a night’s work.
He recently said, “This is a massacre. To be honest, beer taps get drunk dry. We always end up at the bar.
“If we drink, we go in for a drink in silence, and the pubs in the UK drag us to the bar and we walk until 6 in the morning.”
Work hard, play hard guys. . .
Too hot to wear cardi
CARDI B made a chaotic headline at the Wireless Festival by splashing water and hitting a fan with a microphone.
The US rapper, whose sequined outfit almost concealed her modesty, complained that she was too hot and took off her shoes.
Cardi enlisted husband Offset for her tracks Clout and Drip, pouring a bottle of water over her head during the latter. She also performed her Motorsport verse, her 2017 track with Nicki Minaj and Migos.
Even though she was late, she was outraged that the festival bosses tried to interrupt her set before enlisting Megan T Stallion to perform their #1 WAP track.
And as her set drew to a close on Friday, she seemed to swing her microphone at the audience before returning to the stage for the final fireworks display.
SEAN CANCELS ‘TO HEAL’ TOUR
SENDING LOVE to Shawn Mendes, who has postponed his Wonder World Tour for three weeks to focus on his mental health.
The Canadian singer boldly admitted that he is on the verge of a busy work schedule.
He wrote on Instagram: “It breaks my heart to say this but unfortunately I will have to postpone the next three weeks of the show until further notice.
“I’ve been touring since I was 15, and to be honest, it’s always been hard to be on the road away from friends and family.
“After several years off the road, I felt ready to return, but this decision was premature and unfortunately the road and pressure caught up with me and I reached my limit.
“After talking to my team and healthcare professionals, I need some time to heal and take care of myself and my mental health first and foremost.”
It comes after he split from Cuban-born singer Camila Cabello last November after two years of relationship.
Tell me, Natalie.
NATALIE PORTMAN and her co-star Tessa Thompson looked downright classic as they paid homage to the 1990s movie Clueless.
The couple, who are promoting the new Marvel movie Thor: Love and Thunder, donned outfits inspired by Cher Horowitz and Dionne Davenport.
While actress Natalie wore Cher’s (Alicia Silverstone) signature yellow plaid, Tessa sported Dionne-inspired braids and monochrome. Posting the photo on Instagram, Natalie wrote, “I had a goofy moment during yesterday’s @thorofficialjunket.”
A bit of an odd message for a movie about a Scandinavian legend, but that’s what we’re here for.
RITA’S NEW WELL-BEING AURA
RITA ORA and the man who is reportedly her fiancé Taika Waititi are keeping quiet about any future wedding calls.
But we’ve heard that the Hot Right Now hitmaker is seeking a complete image makeover with the help of an LA-based health guru who gave her a strict diet plan.
And she juggles his advice with that of a personal trainer in London.
One source said: “Rita has always been very concerned about health and wellness, but lately she’s been pushing harder than she has in the past.
“She said she wanted to undergo a real transformation and asked for help from a guru in Los Angeles who gave her a list of what she could and could not eat.
“She really sticks to it and is very motivated.”
Asked if he was engaged this week, director Taika interrupted the interview by throwing out his microphone and saying, “What? I’m sorry, you’re breaking up.”
Then he said, “No, he left.”
This sound you hear is the rumor mill that is still spinning.
He may have been expelled from Dancing with the Stars, but cocky ex-judge Bruno Tonioli has vowed to return to the screen.
The Italian choreographer was replaced by Anton Du Beke last year due to Covid-related travel chaos and is now only on the US version of Dancing with the Stars.
Speaking at the Pretty Woman The Musical gala, Bruno told us, “You haven’t seen me for the last time.
“I’m not moving to America full-time. I love London too much. This is my home”.
Bruno insisted: “You will see me on British television again, that’s a promise. You can’t get rid of me that easily.
“There are a lot of interesting things in development.”
Well, quickly to him Bruno. . .
Daz: Ollie good show
Darren Hayes of SAVAGE Garden paid tribute to stars Harry Styles and Ollie Alexander for breaking boundaries and revealing how he felt censored as a young man.
Darren, who has sold over 30 million albums, returned to music earlier this year after a decade away from the industry.
He announced a new album in October and a major UK tour in 2023.
And in a candid interview, he spoke about how much the landscape has changed, remembering how record company bosses went to great lengths to hide his femininity from fans.
Darren, who married Richard Cullen in 2005, said: “I remember being inside a cage in our video for I Want You.
“It was because when I moved in, I looked too feminine. The idea was that no one would see me move. The video for Affirmation was also cut and re-shot for the same reasons.”
He continued, “We didn’t have Ollie Alexander at the time.
“We didn’t have Lil Nas X, we didn’t have these incredible artists who are proud of who they are.
“My album is mostly solo, but I would love to do a duet with Ollie. Ollie, if you’re reading this, call me? I also love the way Harry Styles breaks boundaries.
“If I had the opportunity to perform with him, I would die.”
After seeing Harry invite Shania Twain to join him on the Coachella stage this year, we have high hopes for Coachella 2023.
A year later, E4 makes the UK Married At First Sight reunion special, catching up with actors including Adam Aveling and Taya Victoria, who are expecting their first child.
This week who would we….
Viewers will also get an exclusive first look at the new series and the latest singletons.
Commissioning editor Mel Bezalel said, “It’s only right that we give the audience what they ordered and catch up with this unforgettable cast.”
Pop star Peter Andre Junior’s son revealed that younger sister Princess could follow him on the charts.
The lead singer of Slide told us, “The princess has an amazing voice and loves to sing. She could be a singer one day.”
