Yup! Emma Watson hates karaoke, but it's not because she doesn't like singing per se. Singing in front of friends and strangers does make her nervous, but it's not the entire reason. She actually got over that fear while shooting the live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. The real reason is because she can't take singing in karaokes seriously! She told MTV that she doesn't know how to sing for fun. And that was the same dedication that landed her the role of Belle in Beauty and the Beast. (via

"It was something that I had always wanted to do and I loved to do as a child. Whether or not I could pull off being in one of the biggest musicals of all time, I wasn't sure in the beginning. I was pretty nervous."—Emma Watson

Plus, you need to see this hilarious Beauty and the Beast remake where the cast from the film—the very ones who played Gaston, LeFou, and the Beast/Prince, joined James Corden in the production for his Crosswalk the Musical. Emma sadly didn't make it, but Belle played by James didn't disappoint!


Remember one of your OTPs on Nickelodeon's Victorious? Victoria Justice and Avan Jogia, who play Tori and Beck on the show, are reuniting in a teen comedy film called The Outcasts—and we're loving it! This time around, Victoria and Avan's characters play each other's love interest, which is so cute. Looking forward to seeing their onscreen chemistry strike back again. (via

If you've been following Selena Gomez and The Weeknd's romance, you may have noticed that they are not holding back on their relationship. And according to Canada's etalk, they even went all out on booking the entire movie theater in Toronto, which cost around $1500. As two successful singers who are doing well in each of their own careers, we don't blame them for wanting to have a special date where no one would bother or disturb their time for each other. (via

With Julia Baretto being paired in two love teams, Ronnie Alonte who she's teaming up again for ABS-CBN's A Love To Last, doesn't feel that there's any competition with Julia's other love team, Joshua Garcia, who she recently appeared with on an episode for Maalalaala Mo Kaya. Ronnie says that even when Julia and Joshua already have a huge fan base, he'll still do his best for their upcoming primetime series, and says that he's happy and doesn't want to compete. (via


If you're wondering whatever happened to the Miss Universe dress that Miss Bulgaria decided to give to someone who really wants and needs it, it now made one lucky Filipina teen The Miss Universe of her prom. When Miss Bulgaria chose single mom Issay Gallano, she made a promise to post a photo of her daughter Zyra wearing the blue gown. When Miss Bulgaria saw the picture of Zyra, she posted, "Today is a big day for me! It's Zyra's prom, the beautiful Filipina that was chosen to wear the dress I was wearing on Miss Universe pageant! I am so excited! Good luck, Zyra! Bulgaria loves Philippines." (via

Cold Food

The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.

Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.

Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.

For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?

Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
