It’s not really news as much as it’s an admission of the truth – Justin Bieber has approved Lewis Capaldi’s claims that the Scottish singer is just as fit, if not fitter, than him.
Lewis tweeted out a really flattering photo of himself this morning, saying he’s just as good looking as two of the world’s biggest pop stars.
There’s no doubting that he’s a striking chap, especially in this photo – what filter is that? – but it came with pure, solid confirmation of the fact, when the Biebster himself replied.
Keeping it simple with his reply – because really, what more is there to say – Justin Bieber himself replied, saying: “You are.”
Sharing the news with his fans, Lewis quote tweeted the star, just to make sure the truth is confirmed for all of his 890k followers to see.
And to be fair to Lewis, he doesn’t do too badly for himself. One of his exes has recently risen to fame on Love Island – yep, the one that inspired his heartfelt music.
Lewis Capaldi has spoken out about the fact his ex, Paige Turley, is a contestant on the brand new winter series of Love Island – saying he had no idea she was going in, but insisting he’ll be cheering her on regardless.
When Turley went into the South African villa at the weekend, she revealed that 23-year-old Capaldi was one of her ex-boyfriends, with reports claiming that ‘Someone You Loved’ was actually about her.
She also apologised for ‘being a b***h’ to the Scottish singer, though didn’t divulge any specifics.
Now Capaldi has had his say, and true to form he’s being a pretty good sport about it all.
Speaking on New Zealand radio show The Edge, he joked that Turley owed him a cut of any winnings, saying that his success was partly behind her being selected for the show.
He said: “The prize is like £50,000 and I’ll be like, ‘well, listen, they asked you to go on it, right, I’m not saying I’m the reason but also… Slide me two grand’.”
He continued: “She never told me she was going on it. That would have been a nice heads up.
“But fair play and good luck to her. I’ll be f***ing watching it – like go on Paige, come on.
“When she’s on a date with a boy I’ll be like come on kiss him. I hope she wins.”
He added: “I’ve known her for years. 18 when we first met, 19 when we started going out, 20 when we finished going out.
“It was a very amicable breakup.”
Well, that’s nice to hear – although we’d expect nothing less from the loveable Glaswegian
