He sang in one emotional track: “You and me should be together ’til the end.

“So bye bye, baba, I can’t wait to see your smile again.”

Another track, which he performed near the end of his set, seemed to relate to losing a partner.

Damian sang: “She comes as a blackbird, she comes as a fox.

“She sits at the window, she sings from a rock.

“She’s the moon in the day and the sun that shines in the dark.

“She rests in me and she rests in shade.”

Then in the chorus he belted out: “She’s my joy, she’s my pain and she rained on me.”

Damian and Harry Potter actress Helen, who died age 52, were married for almost 14 years and had two children together — daughter Manon, 15, en seun Gulliver, 14.

As well as original tracks, Damian performed poignant covers of Neil Young‘s Harvest Moon and Tom WaitsLittle Trip To Heaven.

Suggesting the latter was particularly heartfelt for him, Damian admitted: “I shouldn’t have agreed to this song. I shouldn’t have agreed to the mascara either.”

The actor’s 75-minute set at London’s Omeara on Thursday was a warm-up ahead of his appear-ance at the Wilderness Festival in Oxfordshire die naweek.

Damian, who started dating US singer-songwriter Alison Mosshart vroeër die jaar, is expected to release the songs on his as-yet untitled debut album in 2023.

Given he managed to sell out the venue before anyone had heard him sing a note, I’m sure there will be plenty of people keen to pick up his album once it’s finally out.

KYLIE Jenner looks like she just left the house in a hurry after battling with the washing-up.

The designer detailing on her blouse resembles a pair of pink Marigold gloves that you would slip on to tackle the dirty dishes.

The billionaire American reality TV star was snapped leaving Londen‘s Claridge’s Hotel with dogter Stormi – where doubtless she did not stop to help out with kitchen chores.

Later in the evening she slipped into a black mini dress for dinner at sushi restaurant Nobu with her boyfriend Travis Scott.

Kylie is in town with the rapper ahead of his two standalone shows at London’s O2 Arena tonight and tomorrow.

They have made the most of their visit, with Kylie and Stormi going to Harrods for afternoon tea.

You’re welcome in Bizarre HQ any time, Kylie.

Drake scrubs up ok

Drake is is mending hearts as a surgeon in his new music video

Drake is is mending hearts as a surgeon in his new music video

DRAKE has a reputation for being a heartbreaker – but is mending them as a surgeon in his new music video.

But given that he spends most of his time in the clip doing shots and smoking a shisha pipe, it doesn’t look like the Canadian rapper, decked out in hospital scrubs for the promo, would make a great NHS worker.

The song is the latest from DJ Khaled, called Staying Alive and inspired by the Bee Gees’ 1977 hit – and it features Drake and fellow rapper Lil Baby.

It will appear on Khaled’s upcoming 13th album God Did, slated for release later this year.

While Khaled has done a good job getting Drake on the record, he will hope it does better than the rapper’s latest project.

Drake’s album Honestly, Nevermind dropped out of the top 20 entirely after five weeks.

DUA Lipa has a good stab at headlining her latest music festival – while brandishing an umbrella.

She went back to her roots as she took to the stage in Kosovan capital Pristina.

The British-Albanian singer, whose parents are from the city, sparkled in a purple sequin mini-skirt and matching bra as she played the Sunny Hill Festival which she organised with her dad Dukagjin.

She performed on the first night of the four-day festival, which will also play host to American DJ Diplo and grime rapper Skepta.

Speaking on stage, Dua said: “I want to thank everyone that has come down to see our beautiful Pristina, to see our beautiful Kosovo, to come and experience the talent, the music, the creativity, the energy.”

The festival, which launched in 2018, raises funds for the Sunny Hill Foundation to support vulnerable people. Good for her.

Udder tosh, Calvyn

CALVIN Harris has an organic smallholding on Ibiza but is maybe not the finest farmer – after claiming the party isle is so hot that cows cannot live there.

Er, just six miles up the road from his place, there is an entire herd.

The Scots DJ made his claim in an interview yesterday to promote his first album in five years, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 2.

Hy het vertel Zoe Ball’s BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show: “I want a cow but apparently you can’t get cows on Ibiza because it’s too hot.

I’m trying to find the right breed so I can milk a cow.”

He also shut down talk of a follow-up to his latest record in 2023. Hy het gesê: “Absolutely not. ek het 23 people on this album and to pull that together was a slight challenge.

It’s nice to take a break. I will make a bit of dance music after this. A bit of a palate cleanser.”
