Legendary singer Tony Bennett has died aged 96. The jazz and pop crooner was known for selling millions of records throughout his seven-decade-long career and working with other huge artists from Frank Sinatra to, in more recent years, Lady Gaga.
Tony’s sad passing was confirmed on Friday by his publicist. In 2020, Tony shared that he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease four years prior. Tony’s most famous songs included I Left My Heart in San Francisco and New York State of Mind.
Glastonbury 2023 has only just come to a close, but bosses are thought to be considering who could headline the festival next year, and there’s one name that’s high up the list: Coldplay.
The group, fronted by Chris Martin, are reportedly in advanced talks to take to the pyramid stage at the huge fest which will come just a few months after the release of next album, Moon Music, which is thought to be dropping early next year. Coldplay are no strangers to Glastonbury festival as they’ve headlined a number of times over the years including 2002, 2005, 2011 and 2016.

Will.I.Am has shared huge support for Britney Spears as the pair release their brand new collaboration. The artists, who previously teamed up for the track Scream and Shout, have dropped Mind Your Business and while discussing the new song, the former Black Eyed Peas star has shared his thoughts on Britney.

Mind Your Business was first teased on social media earlier this week but the song is out now.
