She also gave a shoutout to producer Dan Nigro, and thanked “everyone who has embraced [her] 17 year old lamentations and forever changed [her] life in the process”.A post shared by Olivia Rodrigo (@oliviarodrigo)‘Sour’ was released on May 21, 2021 via Geffen, flanked her breakout hit ‘Driver’s License’, as well as singles ‘Deja Vu’, ‘Good 4 U’, ‘Brutal’ and ‘Traitor’.

Love Island bosses flogging booze and snacks as ITV show prepares to launch
Love Island bosses have been given the green light to cash in with a range of booze and snacks.ITV bosses filed legal documents last year revealing they wanted to start flogging food and drinks to tie in with the hit show.And now they can start filling supermarket shelves with Love Island bevvies, nuts, crisps, chocolate and buns after they were granted trademarks to sell the grub.ITV had also asked for legal protection from the government’s Intellectual Property Office to flog a range of themed ready meals, sauces, dressings, desserts and dips from the reality show.UK government trademark lawyers approved the application this month and it will remain law for 10 years.The trademark says it covers: “Non-alcoholic beverages; beers; ale; lager; stout; porter; shandy; mineral and aerated waters and other non-alcoholic drinks; fruit drinks and fruit juices; cordials; mixtures containing any of the aforesaid goods; syrups and other preparations for making the aforesaid.”The trademarks will give ITV chiefs freedom to market the goods exclusively with Love Island branding and prevent other firms from cashing in.Meanwhile, pictures have emerged showing the villa for the new series in Mallorca is nearly finished.With just two weeks left to go until the launch, the new pad has six bedrooms, a fire pit and a 20m swimming pool surrounded by wooden decking.Earlier this year, managing director of ITV’s media and entrainment, Kevin Lygo, said they are moving to a new mansion to boost the show.He said: “We didn’t own [the last property].“We rented it and we are choosing a new house for this summer so that is all secrecy.”Applications for the show are already open and it will be aired later in the year.Almost three million people tuned in

Rebekah Vardy claims Coleen Rooney row cost her ‘book deal’ and endorsements
Rebekah Vardy has claimed her Wagatha Christie court battle against Coleen Rooney has damaged her career.Vardy, 40, has been suing fellow WAG Coleen for libel after the latter accused her of leaking her private information to the press in 2019.Wayne Rooney's wife Coleen accused the model of leaking the personal information via a private Instagram account.Vardy has denied the leaking accusations and is suing for libel, whilst Rooney is defending her claim on the basis her post was "substantially true".Ms Vardy has now claimed the Wagatha court drama has cost her a "potential book deal" which she had lined up but has now been "turned down".She also alleged she had a midwife company "lined up" to make placenta capsules for her after the birth of her daughter Olivia, her fifth child.A witness statement, as reported by the Mirror, revealed: "I had a midwife company lined up to make placenta capsules and they pulled out weeks before the birth".The documents were released to the public on Friday (May 20) after both legal teams agreed.Other pieces of evidence revealed included texts exchanged between MS Vardy and her husband, Leicester City footballer Jamie Vardy.The conversations included Vardy's complaint that she had been made a "scapegoat" during the Euro 2016 and that news coverage of her made her "blood boil".Several posts from Coleen Rooney's private Instagram account were also made public, which included her celebrating her husband Wayne's birthday.There was also a photo of the ex England striker and three of their sons in bed wearing pyjamas. Vardy walked out of the Wagatha High Court case on Thursday - the penultimate day of the trial - after Rooney's lawyer claimed she "destroyed evidence".
