NOT only does Anne-Marie have a flourishing music career, she’s quickly amassing a business empire, too.

I can reveal she is planning to launch a fashion company off the back of her success and has registered the name QOTM Clothing.

She’ll have plenty of money to plough into it as her music profits leapt eight-fold last year when she raked in just under £1.7million.

A source said: “Anne-Marie is a savvy woman and is being really sensible with her money.

“She knows she represents normal girls with her music so a clothing company for real women could be really successful.

“So much of the fashion industry is targeted at stick-thin models, but her fans aren’t always like that so making clothes to suit everyone would be wonderful.

“The plan is for there to be a website and then get the clothes stocked in other stores, but it’s early days.”

The Birthday singer also appears to be following in the footsteps of best pal Ed Sheeran by investing in property.

Last year she set up Miss AM Properties, suggesting that she intends to invest in homes like Ed, who now owns 27 properties.

As well as her entrepreneurial ventures, she has also been working on her second studio album.

She doesn’t like to make it too easy for herself.

Suits blue, J-Lo

Jennifer Lopez has had to postpone her wedding to former baseball star Alex Rodriguez, but she isn’t feeling blue – just wearing it.

She slipped into this vibrant bra top and matching jacket, trousers and shoes in a shot shared to promote her US telly show World Of Dance.

Hopefully we will see her back on this side of the Atlantic soon, too.

It’s been eight years since she performed in London on her Dance Again tour.

But January will mark 20 years since she scored her first of three UK No1 singles with Love Don’t Cost A Thing – so what better excuse to book a return trip.

And she’s still as successful as ever, making great music and starring in Hustlers, one of the best films of last year.

She’s more than welcome to come and visit Bizarre when she finally makes it back across the pond.

THE most exciting new band in British music, Sports Team, have released Going Soft, the lead single from their album Deep Down Happy, which is due out on June 19.

The video is created from fan footage from their shows.

It’s a no from Niall too

I CAN already hear hearts breaking across the globe, but sadly Niall Horan has confirmed One Direction will not be reuniting this summer.

Liam Payne told me last month how the group were planning a project to mark their tenth anniversary in July, which many other outlets spun into a story about the band reuniting.

But as I clarified previously, it will not involve a reunion – at least not this year.

When asked about the rumours they were getting back together, Niall said: “There’s been a lot of talk about it but there’s no reunion as such. We’ve just been talking a bit more recently.”

Niall went on to say he is struggling to get his head around it being a decade since his music career took off. Asked if it felt like longer since they formed, he said: “It’s nuts. Sometimes it feels like it was yesterday and other times it feels like it was 50 years ago.”

Niall, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson still have solo tours to complete when the lockdown ends so now is not the right time for a 1D reunion.

So I’ll just have to keep hoping they do a show for their 15th anniversary celebration.

Mel C says touring with the Spice Grils last year inspired her up-coming solo album.

She told Radio 2: “Doing the stadium shows was a real moment to reflect… that was a lot of the inspiration behind songs on the record.”

Foo’s hit is hot tip

LAST week’s race for No1 was close but today’s battle is even harder to call.

Radio 1’s Live Lounge Allstars’ cover of Foo Fighters’ Times Like These featuring Chris Martin, Rita Ora and Dave Grohl was just 1,100 sales behind The Weekend’s Blinding Lights with 24 hours left.

The single is raising money for Comic Relief and Children In Need and would be the second consecutive charity song to hit the top spot after Colonel Tom Moore’s You’ll Never Walk Alone clinched it last Friday.

And if it does, it will be the first time the Foo Fighters have scored a UK No1 song – especially poignant given they’re celebrating their 25th anniversary.

I’ve got my fingers crossed.

Britney’s burned gym

Britney Spears isn’t quite basking in the benefits of having a home gym in lockdown – because she burned it down.

She said on Instagram: “I’m in my gym right now. I haven’t been in here for like six months because I burned my gym down unfortunately. I had two candles and one thing led to another and I burned it down.”

Britney doesn’t have her personal trainer boyfriend Sam Asghari to work out with either, as they are quarantining separately.

You won’t need that gym after all, Britney.

Kendall Jenner has hit back at critics after she was seen out with Devin Booker, the third basketball player she has dated, and trolls joked she was being “passed around” by sportsmen.

Using a slang term for her privates, she tweeted: “They act like I’m not in control of where I throw this cooch.”

Gigi Hadid’s mum Yolanda has confirmed the model is expecting a baby with boyfriend Zayn Malik.

She said: “Of course we are so excited. I’m excited to become oma (grandmother) in September, especially after I lost my mom so recently. But this is the beauty of life, one soul leaves us and a new one comes in.”

Disney is planning a live-action remake of their hit 1997 animation Hercules, with two producers from 2019’s The Lion King already working on the project.

The movie was directed by Jon Favreau and he is also being considered to helm this re-telling, which is expected to feature a handful of new songs.

Beyonce has provided three new verses on US rapper Megan Thee Stallion’s hit Savage for a fresh remix of the song.

It will raise money for coronavirus victims in their native Houston, Texas. Meg said she couldn’t believe the collabor- ation had happened as she grew up going to Destiny’s Child gigs.
