Dominic Sherwood, boyfriend to pop star Taylor Swift in the music video for "Style" and BF IRL to Sarah Hyland, was recently announced to star on the TV series version of Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments. Shadowhunters was picked up by ABC Family, and although we don't have much information on who's set to be with him as Jace Herondale, we're pretty sure he'll be fine. Besides, he killed it as a handsome vampire in The Vampire Academy

Twitter rolled out a new feature and users are freaking out about it. Now you can send a DM (read: direct message) to anyone you wish to send it to. It doesn't matter if you're following them or not. But before you go freaking out about how many spam messages you're going to receive, calm down. You actually have an option to turn on and off receiving messages from people you don't follow. Read more about it in this announcement made by Twitter's official account.

Big Sean and Ariana Grande have decided to call it quits after dating for eight months. In a joint statement, the reps for the two stars cleared things out and said that Ari and Big Sean stay good friends and remain deeply concerned about each other. According to insiders, the reason for the split was their conflicting schedules which will set them apart for the next year. The rapper also shared a cryptic tweet recently which fans are assuming is meant for the "Love Me Harder" hitmaker. Ari and Sean join the list of celebrity couples who took a break because of their busy schedules.

We're super envious of those who can attend the BBC Radio 1 Weekend happening on May 23. The biggest musicians, like Taylor Swift, Hozier, 5 Seconds of Summer, and many more, are flocking to Earlham Park in Norwich to entertain music lovers in their part of the globe. Don't believe it's as awesome as we pictured it to be? Check out their mashup of all the artists playing in the festival soon. We can't even.

Remember when The Little Prince released its French trailer last year? Well, we've been wishing for an English version because this book is a part of our childhood and we want to see it come to life onscreen. Finally, the heavens answered our prayers. Here's the English trailer for the movie adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupery's classic novel, with Gabrielle Aplin's "Salvation" playing in the background NBD. No international release has been announced yet, but The Little Prince is set to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this year.
