5 Things You Missed Today (January 27)
Nathan Sykes, former member of The Wanted, opens up about his upcoming solo album. One track featured in the record? Something about his relationship with Ariana Grande. In an interview, Nathan revealed that this was the most emotional song on the record which is "about me telling myself not to be angry at the breakup because sometimes things just don't work out. That's life." He also explained that it wasn't the best time for him when the breakup happened, which makes everything sadder. "The time we broke up was really tough," he said. "The Wanted decided to take a break and I lost my grandad. I was not in the best place. She was my first grown-up relationship. But sometimes you have to go into a place like that to be able to find the best music out of it." Although the split was painful for him, Nathan clarifies that there's no bad blood between them. Good for him! Life is too short to be bitter about exes. :)
If you're wondering what the best moment from yesterday's Screen Actors Guild Awards was, we think Emma Stone's reaction when her Birdman co-star Naomi Watts tripped onstage because of her gown's train was it. The cast accepted their award for Best Ensemble in a Motion Picture and as Naomi walked to the microphone to say her part, she tripped. Watch the video below and Emma's hilarious reaction (which will probably give birth to memes and GIFs in time!) to it here.
Grammy-winning singer Rihanna is lending her voice to her first animated feature film, Home. In the movie, Rihanna's character Gratuity "Tip" Tucci is about a girl who fends for herself when her mom (voiced by Jennifer Lopez) is captured by aliens. In the process, she meets Oh (Jim Parsons) who becomes her friend and takes her on an epic adventure to saving himself and her mom. From the creators of The Croods and How to Train Your Dragon, Home is set to hit Philippine theaters in March 26.
Remember Scream Queens, the FOX TV series we told you about that starred celebs like Lea Michele and Ariana Grande? Well, another star is joining the list—Nick Jonas. Now you have more reasons to watch the show when it premieres on TV soon. We're getting even more curious about this show!
Look who has a new movie project. It's Twilight actor Taylor Lautner. Under Adam Sandler's Happy Madison productions, Taylor will be starring alongside Adam in the movie Ridiculous 6. This is not their first movie project. The two have previously starred in the comedy flick, Grown Ups 2, just last year. Now they're back to working together and are even joined by more stars (hi, Blake Shelton and Luke Wilson!) for the movie.

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.
