OLIVIA RODRIGO GIVES PARAMORE SONGWRITING CREDITS FOR "GOOD 4 U"
Olivia Rodrigo is handing out songwriting credits once again. After adding Taylor Swift and Jack Antonoff as co-writers to her “SOUR” track “Déjà Vu,” because of its similarities to Taylor’s “Cruel Summer,” Olivia has now added Paramore as co-writers on the track “Good 4 U.”
Olivia was prompted to offer up the credit to Hayley Williams and ex-guitarist Josh Farr after fans noticed lots of similarities between “Good 4 U” and Paramore’s 2007 hit “Misery Business.” Many even posted mash-ups of the two songs on social media.
Sources tell “Variety” that Olivia’s team and Parmore’s were in touch before “Good 4 U” was released, and the credit is for an interpolation, meaning part of a previously recorded song was re-recorded as part of the new song.
LORDE'S ONLY SOCIAL MEDIA OUTLET IS THE "NEW YORK TIMES" COOKING APP
Lorde recently stopped using her social media accounts, except for one: the "New York Times" Cooking app.
She says, quote, "I look at the comments . . . That's become a source of community for me. And you get all these weird little stories. Every once in a while, you'll get some crazy detail."
Lorde's assistant runs her social media accounts so she doesn't have to.
She says, quote, "I felt like my brain wasn't working very well anymore . . . It was horribly difficult, the hardest thing I've ever done. I was so crabby. I felt so disconnected. But it's how my life is now."
She said she was spending too much time on social media, and needed more time to focus on her music.

HONEY BOO BOO GETS HER "TEEN VOGUE" GLAM ON
Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson is ready for her closeup. After shooting to fame on “Toddlers & Tiaras,” she’s reintroducing herself in full “Teen Vogue” glam.
Just shy of her 16th birthday, Thompson says she’s not Honey Boo Boo anymore – and she’s not just a “country bumpkin.” But she doesn't mind the trolls, whether they’re body-shaming or bashing her style – because to Thompson, all that matters is, “I like myself, I am my own person.”
As you may recall, Mama June has gotten in some trouble with drugs and the law, which lost her custody of Thompson. Thompson says she’s proud of how far she’s come since her older sister Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon has been her legal guardian, and reveals she and June are working on their relationship.
