Tinie Tempah says lockdown ”hasn’t been too bad”.
The ‘Pass Out’ hitmaker – who has a daughter, but has not revealed her name – is worried how the coronavirus pandemic has affected young children, as they have been forced away from their friends.
He said: ”It hasn’t been too bad. I feel for the people who have kids at school at the moment, that’s going to be a new kind of shock. Imagine those kids who are used to interacting with all their friends, and all of a sudden they’re not able to see them. That must be crazy. My daughter doesn’t know what’s going on. She’s only one and a half. She doesn’t like the face masks but we’ve got her a cool visor. We’re trying to convince her that it’s a really cool accessory!”
And Tinie also revealed he was struggling to find an animated television series for his daughter to watch which has ”good representation of her as a black girl”.
He added to the MailOnline: ”I’m big on animation. And I recently put out a tweet for my daughter. I was looking for TV shows that had a good representation of her as a little black girl. I was looking through all these different programmes and I was really noticing that it’s difficult. When it comes to literature there’s loads more options available. But in terms of your average programme, there isn’t really that much representation of a young black girl, someone like her. I put out a tweet and [was told about] JoJo & Gran Gran, which is amazing, it’s the first animation in England with an all black cast.
”Then Laura [Henry Allain], the creator of it, she reached out and spoke to me about exploring that and creating something further and maybe collaborating on something new or different.”
Lance Bass | Lance Bass: I just want the best for Britney Spears
The 41-year-old singer has said he ”totally supports” the #FreeBritney movement that was set up on social media for fans to advocate for the end of Britney’s conservatorship, which she has been under since 2008.
And as the ‘Toxic’ hitmaker is currently locked in a court battle to ensure her father, Jamie Spears, doesn’t regain his sole conservator role, Lance has said he hopes the situation ”works out for the best”.
He said: ”I totally support #FreeBritney. I hope everyone figures out exactly what is happening in her life. I do believe that things are settling the way they should be …There’s a judge in charge of all this, so we really need to just trust the judge in the situation and know that things will work out for the best.
”We all love her and I’m very open to finding out what’s going on, but at the end of the day you’ve no idea what’s going on.”
The former NSYNC star also said he’s spoken to Britney’s younger sister Jamie Lynn Spears about the situation, and insisted her family are ”doing the right thing”.
He told ‘Entertainment Tonight’: ”I have talked to Jamie Lynn recently, which is why I feel so much better about this situation. They aren’t as worried as we are. [People] have no idea what’s really going on. So we just have to trust that the loved ones around her are doing the right thing.
”The one thing that I do know is, I know Jamie Lynn … If Jamie is OK with everything going on, I feel like she really has her sister’s back during all this. So I trust her to give us the real information.”
Britney’s current legal battle sees her fighting to ensure her father Jamie isn’t involved in her conservatorship going forward, as she believes he treats her ”like a child”.
Jamie temporarily stepped down from the role in 2019 for health reasons, but Britney doesn’t want him in control of life again.
Last month, the ‘Womanizer’ hitmaker said she was ”strongly opposed” to having her dad return as sole conservator and would ”prefer” for her current conservator, Jodi Montgomery – who took over when Jamie was battling with his health – to stay in the role.
Paloma Faith | Paloma Faith: Dame Helen Mirren is the sexiest woman alive
The 39-year-old singer has heaped praise on the Hollywood icon for helping to end the scrutiny over the ”female ageing process”, and admitted that whilst she has had Botox before, she would never undergo surgery to keep herself looking youthful, because she wants to follow in Helen’s footsteps and age gracefully.
She said: ”I wasn’t doing [Botox] for years and then, before lockdown, I thought ‘Oh, let’s have a go and see what it’s like’. But because I act as well, and my character’s quite angry and expressive, I couldn’t have that much because otherwise it’s a bit weird.
”It’s nice to know that it’s there but I don’t think I’d ever want to be frozen. I’m too anxious to have surgery. Also, it goes against how I think society judges and scrutinises women. The most sexy woman that’s ever lived is Helen Mirren.
”Socially it’s a bit weird to deny the female ageing process. Men don’t have the same thing as much. Men, when they age, everyone’s like, ‘Ooh silver fox’, but with women it’s much harder.”
And the ‘Only Love Can Hurt Like This’ singer says she will be teaching her daughter – whom she had with long-term boyfriend Leyman Lahcine in December 2016 – to love her body too.
Paloma also wants to make sure her daughter doesn’t wait too long to start a family of her own, after the singer – who is now expecting her second child – endured six rounds of IVF before falling pregnant for the second time.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, she said: ”If I were to give advice to my daughter, or other young women, I would say you would never, ever regret the children you have, you only regret the ones you choose not to.
”And that if you can start younger, you should. For me, the Holy Grail age for being a mother for the first time would be 28.
”But it was hard. I had quite a traumatic birth and maybe I wouldn’t have if I’d have done it younger.
”Older parents – I mean, my head’s obviously 12 – but physically, if you leave it a bit later then it’s harder on the body.”
Sam Claflin | Love is in the air: Sam Claflin and Una Healy flirting on dating app
The 34-year-old actor and the Saturdays singer reportedly matched on an unnamed celebrity dating app, and insiders say the pair have been exchanging flirty messages as they wait for the right time to meet up for a date.
A source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: ”Una and Sam have a lot in common. They’ve been messaging quite a bit and are hoping to meet up for a date when they can align their schedules.”
The news comes after Una, 38, divorced her former husband Ben Foden – with whom she has Aoife, eight, and Tadhg, five – in 2018 after four years of marriage.
Sam has also been married once before to actress Laura Haddock – whom he split from in August 2019 – and also has two children, four-year-old Pip and two-year-old Margot, with her.
The ‘Hunger Games’ star announced at the time of their split: ”Laura and I have decided to legally separate. We will move forward with nothing but love, friendship and a deep respect for one another, whilst we continue to raise our family together.
”We won’t be commenting on this further. Thank you in advance for your support and respecting our privacy at this time.
”Both of us x. (sic)”
Since ending their marriage, 35-year-old Laura has struck up a romance with Tom Rhys-Harries, whom she met on the set of Netflix series ‘White Lines’, where they played siblings Zoe and Axel Collins.
And Una’s ex Ben has since found love again, as he tie the knot with his new wife Jackie Belanoff Smith on the same day his divorce from Una was granted.
Admitting the move wasn’t ”very respectful”, he said recently: ”I hold my hands up and say, it was wrong. My final decree didn’t even come through until the morning of us getting married. People will say I wasn’t very respectful in what I did, getting married to Jackie very quickly, but you can’t help the heart and we’ve got past it.”
