LOS ANGELES – Singer Selena Gomez has picked ‘Kill Em With Kindness’ as the next single off her latest album, ‘Revival’.
The 23-year-old singer unexpectedly revealed it during her interview with 97.5 NOW FM, reported Aceshowbiz.
“I’ve been in the studio at the moment already working on new stuff. I can’t wait to celebrate ‘Revival’ but it’s been fun to feel like I’m already moving towards other things, but ‘Kill Em With Kindness’ is lyrically my favorite song I put on the record and I definitely can’t wait to be able for that to have a story,” she said.
Produced by Benny Blanco and Rock Mafia, ‘Kill Em’ follows up hits like ‘Good for You’, ‘Same Old Love’ and ‘Hands to Myself’. It is a positive track about staying kind in the world filled with mean people.
“Your lies are bullets/ Your mouth’s a gun/ And no war in anger/ Was ever won/ Put out the fire before igniting,” she sings. ‘Revival’ debuted at No 1 on Billboard 200 following its release last year.
Gomez has started working on her next studio installment, which she recently teased with a picture of her hitting the studio with the ‘Same Old Love’ songwriter Ross Golan.
Sleeping in on weekends may help live longer
Sleep deprivation has been found to have numerous negative effects on a person’s health. But the new study has shown that sleeping more on the weekend might help ease health problems associated with not getting enough during the week, and even reduce the risk of an early death.
The study, published in Journal of Sleep Research by scientists from Sweden and the United States, suggested that the negative effects of a few nights of short sleep could be counteracted by staying in bed over the weekend.
The from the Stress Research Institute (SRI) at Stockholm University and the Karolinska Institute discovered that people below 65 years old who slept less than five hours on weekends had a higher risk of early death after examining medical and lifestyle data from more than 43,000 adults, following them for a period of 13 years.
For people who slept for less than five hours throughout the week but slept longer on the weekends for about nine hours, there was no increase in mortality risk. But, for people who consistently slept for less than five hours through the whole week, the mortality risk is higher.
Torbjorn Akerstedt, one of the authors of the research and a clinical neuroscience professor from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, said that the findings were consistent with previous studies on the link between sleep duration and mortality.
However, those previous studies only focused on sleep during weekdays.
“The results imply that short sleep is not a risk factor for mortality if it is combined with a medium or long weekend sleep,” the researchers wrote in the study.Follow @gorkhapost
