Los Angeles, Feb 27 (IANS) “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” star Daisy Ridley is going to record a song with “a massive superstar”, says director J.J. Abrams.
“One day on set, she just started singing and had the most beautiful voice I ever heard,” Abrams recently said at the US-Ireland Alliance’s Oscar Wilde Awards, where Ridley was among this year’s honorees, reports eonline.com.
Just the other day, Ridley told Abrams: “On Saturday, this weekend, she is going to record a song with an unnamed person, but let’s just say a massive superstar.”

My life isn’t about Justin Bieber: Selena Gomez
Singer Selena Gomez has made it clear that she didn’t want to talk about her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber anymore.
The “Hands to myself” hitmaker recently threatened to delete her Instagram account after some fans accused her of dissing the “Sorry” singer in her latest post, which she later deleted, reports aceshowbiz.com.
The drama began when the 23-year-old singer uploaded on Instagram a video of herself singing to rapper Lil Wayne’s song “Single” while driving. Out of nowhere, she suddenly said: “I sure did go through that motherf**ker’s s**t. I’m single.”
Her words led her followers to speculate that she was d**sing Bieber. As more people accused her of her ex-beau, the “Same old love” singer posted her reaction in the comments section.
She fired back at haters by dropping a comment in all caps.
“That’s a joke. I was singing back to Lil Wayne. My life isn’t about my ex,” she said, implying that the video had nothing to do with Bieber.
She later threatened to delete her account after some Instagram users told her that her post could cause some drama.
“I want to delete my Instagram. There’s no drama. Everyone else creates drama. Including this post,” she wrote.

Louis Tomlinson in custody battle over child
One Direction star Louis Tomlinson has reportedly hired a legal team in a custody battle over his newborn son Freddie.
The singer was said to be on good terms with the mother of his child Briana Jungwirth. However, things seem to have gone awry with the fashion stylist allegedly demanding more money, reports tmz.com.
Insiders close to Tomlinson, 24, have claimed that she is “using” their one-month-old son, Freddie Reign, to score more money than their current agreement.
It has been claimed that he has had a DNA test, but insists that there is no doubt that Freddie is his child because the couple was dating exclusively in the time that Jungwirth fell pregnant.
Tomlinson will reportedly be asking a judge to order Jungwirth to give him custodial rights, as well as more access to their son.
