5 Things You Missed Today (March 5)
After Emma Watson was announced to play the role of Belle in the live-action adaptation of classic fairytale Beauty and the Beast, all of us started mentioning their dream actor to play the roles of Beast (yay, Dan Stevens bagged the role!) and the arrogant Gaston. And after a few weeks of silence—which felt like forever, TBH—we're finally given an announcement. Dracula Untold's Luke Evans got the role. Check out Emma's adorable shoutout on Twitter below! Now we just have to wait for the rest of the peeps joining Emma, Dan, and Luke for the movie.
Okay, 5 Seconds of Summer, can you tell us what's up exactly? These boys rocked the entire fandom recently with a single tweet, saying, "#5ONTHEWALL." Fans then figured out it was about a website, but nothing was there—except a fuzzy TV screen and a countdown that never ends. Then for a limited time (the video has been taken down already), we got to view a video of the boys at the backstage in their concert in Tokyo where they revealed their setlist after the 6:32 mark. #JEALZ, guys! Please drop by the country, 5SOS! Also, can you tell us what your plans for the website are because it's making us go cray?
Looking forward to Avengers: Age of Ultron in April? Then you totally have to watch the final trailer for the action-packed movie! It's really scary as Ultron is convinced to destroy the world. Is Robert Downey, Jr.'s Ironman the one we should blame for the chaos? Watch the trailer and you be the judge. Avengers: The Age of Ultron is set to premiere in the Philippines on April 22.
It was really sweet of Ansel Elgort to go to the Academy Awards 2015 with his mom Grethe Holby. However, Momma Elgort embarrassed this handsome actor a little in front of Bruce Willis during their conversation. Find out what happened in this interview when he was a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
This video of Maroon 5 meeting their biggest fan is super heartwarming. The band recently spent some time with Christopher Warner, their fan who has down syndrome. The 10-year-old was so nervous when he fially saw his favorite band in person (no surprise there, folks!), so the rest of Maroon 5 was super sweet to lay down on the floor with Christopher to join him as he tried to hide on the floor out of shyness. Aww!

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song
By: CJ Reyno
Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?
Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.
You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.
As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”
I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
Here's a fan art that I made for Lee Joo Young of Itaewon class! I've been making digital illustration since last year and I'm happy that I was able to see my improvements. I'm also happy to see people's reactions and support for my craft even though all of it are made through my phone (adobe illustrator) only ????. You don't actually have to use expensive or complicated medium as long as you know how to be creative and like what you're doing, then you can do it. ????
