Lizzo Pumping Up Niall Horan’s Tyres Has Us Busting For A Collab

Could’ve had a bad b**ch

If you’re late to the Lizzo party, worry not, because her latest news story is pretty much the perfect summation of what the artist is about.

Not only is she a supremely talented songwriter and performer, but she’s got this “zero f**ks to give” approach to life that is seriously inspiring.

And yes, that extends out to her love life. (Shoot your shot, honey!)

Feeling good as hell.

In a recent interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, ex-One Direction cutie, Niall Horan, revealed that the ‘Truth Hurts’ star made a pass at him when they first met.

“I was in London doing a radio performance in the studio,” he told Fallon.

“She was coming in to do an interview in the studio as well, and someone said, ‘Oh, Lizzo’s here! She’d love to meet you’. So, we’re passing in the corridor, I was like, ‘Ah! Lovely to meet you!’ Gave her a big hug. ‘Your voice is incredible. Your songs are amazing. You’re absolutely smashing it.’

“And literally, without missing a beat, she just went, ‘You can smash this!’” And I was just like, ‘Fair play’…I actually started blushing myself!”

This isn’t the first time the pair has had a laugh over this story, with Lizzo recounting the exchange during an interview with BBC Radio One. Horan spotted the footage on Twitter and sent some love the singer’s way.

While it’s pretty clear the romance is just playful for now, we can’t help but imagine the sweet, sweet music these two could make (Literally! Get your minds out of the gutter.) Maybe a ‘Jerome’ remix? I’d pay to hear it.

Is Blake Lively Going To Delete Her Instagram For Every Movie Now?

Seems like a lot of effort.

If you’ve had access to an Internet connection this week, chances are that you’re aware that one Blake Lively has gone and wiped her Instagram account.

But it was so beautiful!

The actress has deleted all that prime content picturing hottie hubby Ryan Reynolds. She’s done away with every photo of her fabulous fashion moments. She’s robbed us of her witty captions and hilarious digs at those close to her (usually/always Reynolds).

All we’ve been left with is one measly post. A promo video for her upcoming film, The Rhythm Section.

As her caption, she’s simply tagged @therhythmsec. Funny story, though, that’s not the actual profile for the film – that would be @therhythmsectionmovie. It’s probably a little error, but interestingly, @therhythmsec is a profile that belongs to someone named Emilie.

Why is it interesting? Well, the coincidence here is that this isn’t the first time Lively has deleted her entire account. While promoting her last film A Simple Favor, she wiped her profile and only followed people named Emily – which was her character’s name in the film.

This time around, her character’s name is Stephanie Patrick – a woman on a revenge hunt after her family is killed – so, I’m no sure the Emilie link really means anything. It’s still kinda strange, though.

Anyway. We obviously know the ‘delete your entire account’ shtick works to get the attention of the public. Hello, I’m writing an article on it right now.

But being the second time she’s used this move, it does make me wonder: is she going to kill her Instagram account every single time she promotes a film?

After A Simple Favor, Lively went through and re-uploaded all of her posts (it could have been an employee, but it seemed to be her) to the platform.

Did she screenshot every caption? Did she keep a record of the order they were in? How long does something like that even take?

I assume she’ll do the same this time around, and honestly, it just seems like too much effort to me. I feel tired just thinking about it.

I guess I admire her dedication, though?

The Rhythm Section is set to hit cinemas in Australia on February 20, 2020, and stars Jude Law and Sterling K. Brown alongside Lively.
