SHE’S already one of the world’s most stunningly beautiful supermodels – but after years of flashing her incredible figure Heidi Klum is now about to show her music talents too.
I can reveal the A-list fashionista has teamed up with rapper Snoop Dogg and producer duo Weddingcake for a club-filled dance track to kick off 2022.
The single, which is called Chai Tea With Heidi and is released on Friday, was one of the top goals on her bucket list for the year.
Going all out to impress with her debut, the accompanying music video has been shot by famous photographer Rankin.
‘Dream come true’
Looking seriously hot in the clip alongside the rapper, Heidi proves that less is more — going braless beneath her see-through corset.
Turning up the heat even more, she completes her look by rocking fishnets and heels, while Snoop opts for a typically garish orange fur-trimmed jacket.
Talking about her venture into the world of pop, Heidi told me: “I love stepping outside of my comfort zone and challenging myself so it was something I was definitely considering.
“But I knew there was only one person I wanted to sing with. I am a huge Snoop Dogg fan and I figured I needed to go big or go home.

“I contacted him about the idea and, to my surprise and delight, he invited me to come to his studio.”
She added: “I love a song that makes people want to dance and have fun and Snoop helped deliver just that.
“Sometimes, I need to pinch myself to make sure I am not dreaming this because it is truly a dream come true. “
In a nod to her British fans, Heidi pays homage to Rod Stewart by singing two lines from his 1983 classic, Baby Jane.
Heidi’s track will also be given a boost by featuring as the title song of the 17th series of Germany’s Next Top Model.
I admit that it’s been a few years since I’ve checked out a Snoop Dogg video but with Heidi on board it’s got my attention.
Ri goes Dotty
RIHANNA does her best Dot Cotton impression in a headscarf and puffy gilet.
But the Bajan star may not appreciate me saying that – given it was a designer item from Balenciaga and Gucci’s new collaboration.
She wore the get-up while out for dinner with boyfriend ASAP Rocky at celebrity hotspot Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica.
But the price of the outfit certainly wasn’t on the same level as something you could buy in Walford market.
Rihanna’s headscarf cost £390 while her gilet came in at £1,850.
LADY GAGA, Olivia Colman, Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Hudson and Jessica Chastain lead the nominations for Best Female Lead at next month’s Screen Actors Guild Awards.
The shortlists for the ceremony on February 27 were announced last night.
In the Best Male Lead category, there were nods for Will Smith, Benedict Cumberbatch, Denzel Washington, Andrew Garfield and Javier Bardem.
Dan's Greek Tragedy
BASTILLE frontman Dan Smith jumped at the chance to perform Greek Tragedy with The Wombats – six years after he remixed the track for the band.
The group, headed by Matt Murphy, recorded the session at BBC’s Maida Vale Studios in London and it was played on Radio 1 last night.
Speaking about working with The Wombats, whose new album Fix Yourself, Not The World, is out tomorrow, Dan, right, said: “I f***ing love this song.
“When Greek Tragedy came out and we remixed it for the guys, we imagined Murph brooding away in a Christopher Nolan Batman film.
“In our heads, it worked.”
Big I-do for Becky
BECKY HILL had a stellar 2021 with the release of her debut album, a string of hit singles and two nominations for the Brit Awards.
But this year is shaping up to be even bigger. Ahead of the awards ceremony next month she has just got engaged to long-term partner Charlie Gardner.
The Remember singer posted these photos on Instagram of the proposal in the Maldives earlier this week, alongside the caption: “Turns out he actually does like me.”
As for finding a wedding date though, that could be tricky.
She has shows booked throughout the summer and will be appearing at festivals across Europe, including Creamfields, Neighbourhood Weekender and Tramlines.
With all the cash she is raking in though, the loved-up couple will be able to have a big old bash when they do walk down the aisle.
£3.3 MILLION IS A LIFE SAVER
SOME pop reunions end up being a damp squib – but Westlife’s comeback has paid off big time.
I have learned the Irish group earned just over £3.3million from their 2019 tour, with the lads due to enjoy another cash bonanza this year.
Latest accounts for 1999 Productions LLP, which deals with the band’s touring income, shows they banked £3,308,509 and left £221,495 in the pot after they had taken their earnings out.
That means Shane Filan, Nicky Byrne, Markus Feehily and Kian Egan each took home £771,000.
The group released their 12th album Wild Dreams in November and are now preparing for an even bigger tour for the summer, which is sure to make them even more money.
They will play a string of shows at venues including Dublin’s Aviva Stadium and London’s Wembley Stadium, then return for another 15-date jaunt in November and December.
A decade ago, Nicky said none of the members were “absolutely minted,” and admitted: “We have all lost money. We were all very foolish with money in the early days, we all bought cars and watches – the silly things.”
Brit sis brought to book
She will release Things I Should Have Said next week – but Britney has hinted she will tell her story with a book of her own.
In a cryptic post on Instagram, she shared a photo of a typewriter with the caption: “Shall I start from the beginning?”
The update came hours before an interview Jamie Lynn gave on US TV yesterday. She insisted she still loves Britney – who has unfollowed her on Instagram. Britney previously slammed her family and said neither her sister or mother tried to help her get out of her conservatorship, which meant her dad controlled her life and finances.
When asked what “caused the rift” between her and Britney, Jamie Lynn replied through tears: “That love is still there, 100 per cent. I love my sister. I’ve only ever loved and supported her and done what’s right by her and she knows that, so I don’t know why we’re in this position.”
It has not yet been revealed what Jamie Lynn says about the Toxic singer in her book. But I think it’s time for Britney to finally tell her story.
THIS Country’s Daisy May Cooper and rapper Lady Leshurr have been announced as the hosts of the Bandlab NME Awards, at the O2 Academy Brixton in London on March 2.
How to Mix 90s
HOWARD DONALD is jumping aboard Radio 6 Music for a one-off guest appearance on Steve Lamaqc’s Back To The 90s show today.
The station will play nothing but Nineties tunes all day, with the Take That singer joining the show for the last 30 minutes, with his own curated mix.
He said: “I’m very proud to be doing a mix of Nineties music for 6 Music, as this week is a celebration of Nineties music.
“People may assume, with me being in a pop band, that I’ll only be playing pop music like Take That. I think you’ll be surprised with some of the tunes I’ve chosen.
“ It’s fantastic to be part of this celebration and to be invited to be a part of it.”
