5 Things You Missed Today (April 15)
After making all of us fall in love with their pairing in Crazy, Stupid, Love and then in Gangster Squad, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are in negotiations to work for the third time for another movie. This time, for a musical, the movie La La Land, from Whiplash director Damien Chazelle. Originally set to star Emma Watson and Miles Teller, the musical is about aspiring actress Mia who's trying to fit in and charismatic jazz pianist Sebastian. They're still trying to make this happen, but let's continue crossing our fingers so it pushes through.
We know you love Carly Rae Jepsen's catchy song "I Really Like You," but here's a video to make you love it more. Justin Bieber and his friends put together a lip dub video to give you a bad case of LSS. Joining him are Ariana Grande, Kendall Jenner, 2NE1's CL, among others. Hit the play button to watch it below.
After Nina Dobrev announced that she's leaving The Vampire Diaries, people were shocked and that includes Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale. But you don't have to worry about Lucy because she revealed in an interview with E! that she's going to be on PLL until it ends. Well that's reassuring. Thanks, Lucy!
Pitch Perfect 2 star Hailee Steinfeld talks about being in the film during her cover interview for Marie Claire's May 2015 issue. "I couldn’t believe I was making this movie. I was like, 'Oh, my God! There's Rebel!'" she said. "I literally gained 10 older sisters. We have a group chat that hasn't stopped since we made the movie." Aww, Hailee is the sweetest, isn't she? The young actress is one of Marie Claire's cover ladies alongside Kate Upton, Zoe Kravitz, Felicity Jones, and Iggy Azalea. Pitch Perfect 2 is set for release in May.
And we have another #Caylor or #Talvin rumors going around. When the two reportedly started dating, people speculated that maybe Taylor Swift was going to write a song about music producer Calvin Harris. And by people, we mean the DJ himself. A source recently revealed that he confronted Tay-Tay about it and told her that he doesn't want any revenge songs written about him. "It was the white elephant in the room, but it's been on his mind, so he confronted her about it last week, telling her he doesn't want her to do that to him," the insider said. "Calvin doesn't just want to date Taylor. He's desperate to make sweet music with her." How sweet of Calvin, but do you think these reports are true? Either way, we'd really love to listen to a song by these two musicians.

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song
By: CJ Reyno
Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?
Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.
You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.
As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”
I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
Here's a fan art that I made for Lee Joo Young of Itaewon class! I've been making digital illustration since last year and I'm happy that I was able to see my improvements. I'm also happy to see people's reactions and support for my craft even though all of it are made through my phone (adobe illustrator) only ????. You don't actually have to use expensive or complicated medium as long as you know how to be creative and like what you're doing, then you can do it. ????
