Adam Levine Did a Tribute Performance for Christina Grimmie on The Voice
It's been a while already, but we still can't believe that Christina Grimmie isn't with us anymore. This young lady has inspired a lot of people through her YouTube channel and through the competition The Voice, where she was under the mentorship of Adam Levine. On Tuesday, Team Adam did a tribute performance for the late singer by singing The Beatles' "Hey Jude" in her honor. Christina's family will also be releasing an EP, Side B, on June 2. All the proceeds will go to Christina Grimmie Foundation. We miss you always, Christina! (via MTV.com)

New Justin Bieber music is coming and we can't wait! We've been listening to Purpose for the longest time already, so we think it's about time Justin makes another infectious hit.

Oh no! Vanessa Hudgens' Powerless has been pulled out from it's timeslot. The DC Comics series hasn't been fully released and there are still remaining episodes, so it's uncertain when they're coming out.

The show started airing on NBC last February and the ratings weren't impressive. (via JustJaredJr.com)
Good news for fans of Sophie Turner's Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse! Her character is getting a spinoff movie called Dark Phoenix. This arc from the comics tells the story of when Jean was "possessed by a dark force and unleashes her volatile telekinetic skills on the world." We're definitely going to watch this because after seeing Sophie play the mutant in the movie, we know she can take on the role. (via Seventeen.com)

Outdoors Danielle Flestado @artdkf | May 1, 2020 "I miss the outside world. The last time I went outside of our house was on my birthday. We just bought coffee across our village and went back home immediately. This painting made me feel that I'm in a field, just appreciating the beauty of God's creation. Can you imagine the green grass and pink flowers?"
When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.
You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.
You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
I always thought of life, like a bead where each piece makes it worth sewing together with other piece of beads to make a stronger bond and to create a beautiful result. Today, how do we bond well with different people especially this difficult time? As this day challenges us to a new normal, may we continue to bead along positively with our life.
