CRUZ BECKHAM will soon be following in his mother’s footsteps, as he was signed to the management team that made Dua Lip a star.
I can reveal that David and Victoria’s youngest son has his singing career guided by Tap Music, which manages Dua and a range of other big names including Ellie Goulding, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Lana del Ray.
The company aims to find Cruz a record label and negotiate big deals for him.
A source said: “Having such an established and successful management company take Cruz proves that he is convinced he is the real deal.
“Everyone has been really impressed with what they’ve heard so far and they’re working hard to develop their songs.
“Everything is falling into place with his career but he is in no rush to release music yet.
“He is working with Tap to make sure there is a plan in place to give him the best possible launch as a solo singer. His parents’ fame means there are high expectations and he has a lot to prove. But the most important thing is that everyone insists that his voice is better than his mother’s.
Cruz gave a rare interview in February to talk about his music and said he had worked with producer Poo Bear – the mastermind behind Justin Bieber’s Confessions of Usher and Purpose album.
He also shared how he learned to play guitar, piano and drums and said his goal was to “just make the music I love”.
With the Spice Girls, Victoria sold over 100 million records becoming the best-selling girl group of all time.
If Cruz hits numbers even close to that, he’ll laugh all the way to the bank.
And here is Dua’s advice
ELLE has been on the road for weeks, blasting her way through epic 19-song set-lists around the world.
And if you were wondering how Dua manages to hold on, she revealed her secret: no partying.
Speaking about her touring routine, Dua, whose next gig is in Nottingham tomorrow, said: “Honestly no party. I have to be so strict.
“It’s relentless, so I have to be on top of my game. I have to get enough sleep.
“If I have a few days off, maybe I can hang out with my band.”
She added: “I love it, but I learned to build my stamina and do it night after night.”
MEGAN Thee Stallion was riding high as she performed during weekend two of the Coachella festival.
The Plan B singer dazzled on stage in the Colorado desert wearing a bright green Dolce and Gabbana bodysuit with nude fishnet tights as she belted out some of her greatest hits.
While Megan managed to stay on her feet, poor Billie Eilish took a fall during her set. Billie, who is Coachella’s youngest headliner, was heard hitting the deck as the lights went out on stage after singing Getting Older.
She told the crowd, “You guys, I seriously ate s.” It was pitch dark. See that square? That fucking thing? I went de-de-de-de-de and I fell on my face.
Harry Styles was also in top form when he took the stage for his set and delighted fans by bringing out Lizzo for a surprise duet.
The former One Direction star, who looks set to spend an entire month at No. 1 with his song As It Was, wore a feather boa that matched Lizzo’s as they sang the classic I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor in 1978.
Postcard for Sainte-Elba?
BEFORE his 50th birthday in September, Idris Elba has a battle on his hands.
The actor-turned-DJ says his dream celebration would be to fly out of the country and welcome his new decade in style.
But his wife Sabrina has other plans. Speaking on US TV, the Luther star said: “It’s a milestone so maybe I need to celebrate it.
“My wife wants to throw a big party. I don’t want to do this.
“I’m going to go to a private beach somewhere, make cocktails and relax.”
Seems pretty perfect to me.
Gaga is so gong ho
LADY Gaga will release a new single next month, which could set her up for even more Oscar glory.
The track, which I can confirm is called Hold My Hand, will be part of the soundtrack for Tom Cruise’s new movie, Top Gun: Maverick. It has been touted by insiders as “epic” and is expected to drop next week.
Gaga won Best Original Song at the 2019 Oscars for Shallow from A Star Is Born – her track with her co-star in the romantic drama, Bradley Cooper.
Now she could be in the frame to win this category for the second time.
A source said: “Hold My Hand is Gaga at her best. It was supposed to be released at the end of this month, but bosses have pushed the release back slightly. The video ended a short time ago.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if next year Gaga is awarded another Best Original Academy Song nod.”
The track will hit radio two months before Gaga begins her Chromatica Ball world tour – including two gigs at London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in July.
I was already excited about the new Top Gun movie. A belt soundtrack only adds to the fun.
Captain Sensible Roman’s Mom
IT makes the nation laugh every weekday morning on Capital FM.
But Roman Kemp insists that despite his bubbly on-air personality, away from his day job, he is still called “sensitive” by his mother, singer Shirlie Holliman.
In fact, he feels that the rest of his family – including his father, Spandau Ballet bassist Martin Kemp – are much more outgoing than he is.
Roman said: “My mum would say among her kids I’m way too sensible, I’m pretty quiet.
“I’m not as sociable as some other people. But I like to be silly. During the four hours that I do on the Breakfast show, I like more than anything to put all my energy into it.
“I love hearing people laugh and people coming out of it feeling something.”
Despite having one of the biggest shows in the UK, Roman insists he’s not ratings obsessed.
Speaking in the new issue of Decent magazine, which you can pre-order now, he continued: “Selfishly, it’s for me – I’m having a lot of fun doing it.
“Honestly, I don’t care what the ratings say, ever. They are just a nice bonus.
