Do you guys think Taylor Swift copied a scene from Beyoncé's music video? There are some accusations and drew out comparisons from Beyoncé's "Lemonade" to Tay's new MV in "Look What You Made Me Do." To clear all misunderstandings, the Director of LWYMMD, Joseph Kahn, responded to this issue on Twitter saying, "I've worked with Beyoncé a few times. She's an amazing person. The #LWYMMDvideo is not in her art space, Love and respect to Bey." And in his recent interview with Los Angeles Times, he commented about the copying issue—specifically the accusations that Taylor wore a black crop top which was similar to Beyoncé who also wore a black crop top. He said that what they don't realize is that Tay was also wearing a black crop top in her previous MV "Bad Blood." Copying Beyonce or not, why are people making a big deal about their fashion choices? Can't it just be on trend? LOL. (via teenvogue.com)

OMG, you guys! ICYMI, Dylan O'Brien revealed in his recent interview with Vulture, that before MTV's hit show Teen Wolf, Dylan auditioned for projects like Valentine's Day and Wizards of Waverly Place. Just imagine another life where Dylan is a Disney channel star who's also co-stars with Selena Gomez! He didn't mention what role he auditioned for though, but we can't think of any roles in the show we'd like to let go. What's worse is, we also can't imagine the world where Dylan isn't Teen Wolf's Styles Stilinski! (via teenvogue.com)

There's no doubt the chemistry between Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto is alive and well with their great tandem on recent projects. And what got our hearts into more kilig is the fact that Joshua is currently courting Julia! When Joshua was asked on what motivates him to keep on courting his love team during his recent press con for their movie, Love You to the Stars and Back, Joshua answered that he got the push he needed from the words of Julia's mother Marjorie Barretto. Marjorie is all for Joshua saying that she finds no problems with him. She supports Joshua as a suitor but will also support whatever her daughter Julia decides. (via pep.ph)

Of course, who can deny that Sam Smith has been delivering great songs and hits! You may be shocked to know it has been three years since his debut album released.

He just dropped his new single and like always, he didn't disappoint! Like previous songs, "Too Good at Goodbyes" will definitely tug on your heartstrings with its soulful vocals, heartbreaking lyrics, and catchy tune.

Being the first person to reach 100 million followers on Instagram, Selena Gomez was featured by Time Magazine in their "Firsts" project that aims to celebrate women who were first to achieve something historic. Even being dubbed as Instagram queen, Selena Gomez also sees the faults of social media and makes sure that she shows the world her unfiltered life—how it's not always picture-perfect. She shares this especially to her fans, saying, "I hope that they know that strength doesn't mean you have to put on a façade. Strength is being vulnerable." Such a major inspiration! (via mtv.com)

A Simple Learner Who's a Great Pretender

Maybe I'm just a learner, not a weirdo. A learner that knows how to listen and pretend. A simple learner who's a great pretender. Pretending to be slightly dumb enough not to be judged and criticized by those who do not appreciate my existence. We surround ourselves with people who's levels are either beyond or below our intellectual behavior, because as for reality, people may use you either for their success or your downfall. Since then, people tend to judge someone who has an intellect with things they shouldn't be. Making them a criticizer, and most of all, calling them weird.

Honestly, I'm one of this "weirdo" who actually loves to learn things, and for the record, I'm bullied and stressed out for making myself not to learn more and go with the flow to dumbness I had. Have you ever feel being assigned to some task where you know every process to make it easier and faster to finish but turns out to hesitate to voice out because some of your mates put themselves in charge. There are times where I know what to do, what to say, or how to react, but kept myself silent and pretend not to know anything that may help us. Maybe it's a good thing to just go with their ideas and learn from their perspectives, but sometimes you can't control it and says something, and once again called to be a weirdo and let you finish the work by yourself.

It's annoying that you only know one process yet they gave you the whole work and let you finish it by yourself because they insist that "MAGALING KA DIBA?". It's not your fault being an intellectual person, knowing such things that may help you to pursue your dreams, and have the basic knowledge about something. You don't need to know everything, just the basics. And as for those people who do not appreciate your existence, let them be and continue what's the best for you. In some cases, you'll be annoyed by this but most of the time you'll be thankful for it. Not for now but maybe later. Just be yourself either a weirdo, a great pretender, or a simple learner, and always remember to lower your voice and behavior because no one loves that.

Just be a great pretender not to hear any runts and be a good learner that appreciates everything. It's out of nowhere thoughts of mine, but simply I leave you this my favorite life quotation; "Don't introduce yourself, Let your success introduce you"
