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.

PRIMO.

First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.

The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.

There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.

Bea Alamis Just now

If you know me, and know me well, I am not the biggest fan of idyllic lifestyles. With a Type A personality, I act immediately upon whatever challenge that needs to be addressed. I actually enjoy keeping my mind preoccupied: doing university work in my favourite cafe then running errands around town, grocery shopping here, updating my accounts there, photocopying documents on the way down the street - all just in time before having a glass of champagne at the bar with my friends come evening.

And so, you could imagine my bewilderment when the next challenge to be faced was an extensive self-quarantine protocol. I didn’t know what to do when my greatest responsibility in this situation was to do nothing at all. My first few attempts to combat my consternation were very much rooted in distraction and imagination. My distractions involved conducting research, writing songs, calling family and friends, filming videos, and eating chocolate! My imaginations and fantasies were centred on travelling, shopping, even clubbing (which I rarely do) for when they find a cure to COVID-19. I did anything and everything that could be considered constructive in order to pass the time, mainly hoping I could just undertake the basic human necessities to survive - that is, eat and sleep the day through - until the next day comes, until the world is closer to becoming a better place, until quarantine ends, until my flight follows through, until I see my family and friends again.

Days in self-isolation and suspended flights turned to weeks and turned to months. By the third extension here in Spain where I study Fashion Business, I had to tell myself this shall be my new normal now, that I was blessed to be healthy, that I was tired of merely existing and missed what it was like to actually live - even if just within four walls. Little by little, I began to find significance in the simple occurrences of the day: the soft glare of the rising sun beaming golden streaks through my bedroom window upon waking up, the fragrance of freshly washed bed sheets that I had painstakingly hung to fit a relatively small clothes rack without crumpling them, the crunch and tanginess of warm toasted bread topped with raspberry marmalade, the buzzing sound of a phone call from home just waiting to be answered, to the caress of a fuzzy sweater to keep warm at night. I realised, “What pleasures to be enjoyed in the pause of slow living!” Through this continued pause, which I loathed at first, I began to appreciate each moment of the day rather than wish it would pass more swiftly, moments I had overlooked so often before the lockdown. I started to find that the challenge of self-isolation was never to pause both the regular routines of life as well as the positive emotions that came with these - as initially, I thought it meant to pause all happiness, so as to withstand a time of endurance in hopes for a better tomorrow, much like a form of delaying gratification. Life is just too fragile these days to delay gratification any further.

Life has paused, but it has not stopped. Believe that like any punctuation mark in a sentence, the pause will provide the right timing of things to take place. Till then, let us not waste our time waiting. Instead, we could be in the moment, seek substance in simplicity (that is, in what we already have), And enjoy the pleasure in pause. “Practice the Pause. When in doubt, pause. When angry, pause. When tired, pause. When stressed, pause. And when you pause, pray.”
