Are you wondering which One Direction cutie is Meghan Trainor crushing on? Many assumed it would be Harry Styles since she's collaborating with him for a song. But in a Capital FM interview, the "All About That Bass" hitmaker revealed it's Niall Horan. "One Direction, give me the blonde one! He's a gentleman," she said. "All the other boys walked by and he came up to me, I got swept off my feet [by his Irish charm]!" Props to her for being able to choose. We can't even choose two for ourselves. Heehee.
Miss Universe crowned its 2014 queen earlier today and during the evening gown competition, Nick Jonas performed some of his hit songs for the lovely candidates. But of course he just has to walk to his girlfriend and Miss Universe 2012 title holder, Olivia Culpo, while singing "Jealous" which he admitted before was for his girlfriend. Our country's rep meanwhile to the beauty contest, MJ Lastimosa, didn't manage to get through the top five finalists but we're proud of her and are happy for those who won. Miss Colombia Paulina Vega took home the crown, beating Miss USA, Miss Netherlands, Miss Jamaica, and Miss Ukraine.
The Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAGs) also revealed their choices for the best performances in movies and on television earlier today. Eddie Redmayne won Outstanding Performance by a Male in a Leading Role for Theory of Everything. J.K. Simmons took home Outstanding Performance by a Male in a Supporting Role for Whiplash. And Game of Thrones was recognized for Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Comedy or Drama Series. View the complete list of nominess and winners right here, and make sure you watch Eddie's touching acceptance speech after he received his statuette.
Abigail Breslin has pointed out before that her song, "You Suck," isn't about 5 Seconds of Summer's Michael Clifford. But many still believe it is, so you could just imagine all the hate she's been receiving. Turns out, though, that even Mikey isn't a fan of the track, too. Over the weekend, Abi addressed the the mean things thrown her way and called "You Suck" a "joke song." That's when Mikey replied and said, "I didn't find your joke song funny." Abi didn't seem to notice his reply, though, and even continued her lengthy tweets about the topic.

Hi! It's been so long since I planned to post my story in another platform aside from wattpad and now here I am, hoping that my story can be featured here.
My story is entitle "Who Are You," it's a tagalog-english teen fiction story so I hope, those filipinos who visit here can read my story!
WHO ARE YOU: PRELUDE
Sinungaling na ba ako kung sasabihin ko sa inyo ang pangalan ko? Hindi ako sure kung anong sasabihin kong pangalan ko pero may nagsasabi sa aking wag nalang magpakilala sa inyo.
May gusto lang naman akong itanong... Paano kung may makilala ka sa kasalukuyan na nagpapaalala sayo sa nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang nakilala mo sa kasalukuyan ay may tinatago pa lang sikreto na kahit siya mismo ay walang alam pero may kinalaman sa iyong nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang dalawang ito ay may koneksyon? Anong pipiliin mo? Ang nakilala mo sa nakaraan? O ang nagpakilala bilang ibang tao sa kasalukuyan? Past? Or Present?
There was this guy I dated for a while but things didn't turn out well. I was so into him that one night I can't stop thinking about him, I've decided to send his MOM a message on facebook confessing how much I like her son. I wish it ended there but no. I had to make it so emotional, lengthy and detailed like the drama queen I am. Luckily, it went to message request so I'm hoping she hasn't really read it yet. Up until this day it makes me cringe whenever I think about it but hey, whenever it pops in my mind I make myself laugh too so thank you self for being unbelievably shameless and brave when it comes to love. I may age faster because I have made a lot of cringe-worthy moments that I constantly make faces out of embarrassment just reflecting on my antics but I know I've made more hilarious memories than what ifs and somehow that makes the disappointments feel more like assurances that I have gave it my all and I have lived as honest (maybe a little to honest) as I could. #ItsOnlyNatural #CanBnatural
I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
