OMG, Harry Styles Was Asked if "Sweet Creatures" is About #Larry!
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, #Larry Stylinson shippers (aka all of us), Harry Styles' new song "Sweet Creature" is not about Louis Tomlinson. In an interview with radio show 106.1 BLI, host Cooper Lawrence dared to ask him exactly that: "They're [fans] sure that that's about your relationship with Louis Tomlinson. Is it?" Poor Harry was taken aback, but managed to express his answer clearly. "I think uh... I mean, you know. I mean, I think people are always gonna speculate what songs are about, and I don't think I'd ever want to tell anyone but they're wrong, for feeling what they feel about a song. Even when they're not necessarily right... But I think if you really listen to the lyrics I think you can work out if it's really about that or not, and I would lean towards no," he said. Aww! Larry or not, we're here for you, Haz! (via dolly.com.au)
Rumor has it that Park Shin Hye is dating actor Choi Tae Joon after they were seen at a national park overseas while on vacation together with some friends. Both actors are students at Chung Ang University taking up drama and cinema and theatre respectively. According to Salt Entertainment, Park Shin Hye's agencey, the two have a "close senior-junior relationship" and that they "have maintained a good friendship as industry senior and junior." The agency also added that "fans are very well aware of their friendship. Park Shin Hye went to the park not only with Choi Tae Joon, but with many other fellow students as well. It seems that, despite the fact that there were a lot of people, many recognized only Choi Tae Joon and Park Shin Hye." (via soompi.com)
Remember when we wrote about BTS possibly beating Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, and Shawn Mendes for the Top Social Artist award at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards? It looks like it's gonna happen as the group is flying to Las Vegas for the event! "BTS announced Monday (May 8) that they will attend the BBMAs in hopes of winning the award for top social artist. The event will be the K-pop superstars' first U.S. red carpet," Billboard wrote. If When they win, they'll go down in history as the first K-Pop group to ever win in the show! (via allkpop.com)
While most stars get mobbed by fans upon entering a room, Riverdale's Lili Reinhart's experience with a fan was quite the opposite. It was unique and special and pretty hilarious. She shared how it all went down on her Insta story.
"Girl at the DMV says– 'Do you watch the show Riverdale? You look just like the girl on there,'" she captioned her first story.
"I said, 'I do?? Omg thank you so much!'" she continued with a picture of her doing an exaggerated face, but later on revealed what her actual reaction was. "Jk, I said "yup that's me." LOL, Lili! (via justjaredjr.com)
Three years after the release of Prism, Katy Perry's back with new music, and the one thing people seem to be most concerned about is if it has a reaction to Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood." It can be recalled that the two artists have been feuding and that Tay's song was said to take a dig at Katy. "Well that's not my question to answer—if it's about me. I think [my new album is] a very empowered record. There is no one thing that's calling out any one person," she said in an interview.
"One thing to note is: You can't mistake kindness for weakness and don't come for me. Anyone. Anyone. Anyone. Anyone. And that's not to any one person and don't quote me that it is, because it's not. It's not about that. Honestly, when women come together and they decide to unite, this world is going to be a better place. Period end of story. But, let me say this: Everything has a reaction or a consequence so don't forget about that, okay, honey. [Laughs] We got to keep it real, honey. This record is not about anyone else! This record is about me being seen and heard so that I can see and hear everyone else! It's not even about me! It's about everything that I see out there that I digest. I think there's a healing in it for me and vulnerability. If people want to connect and be healed and feel vulnerable and feel empowered and strong, God bless and here it is." Well said, Katy. Hope we could all put this to rest. (via ew.com)

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.”
Here's my two cents on the letter, call for help of our medical frontliners. Let’s hear what our healthcare workers have to say and try to understand it from their point of view, they have every right to criticize how this medical crisis is being handled by the government... after all, they're the experts on the topic. Though we see the frontliners as heroes in our eyes, the lack of concrete plans from the government to combat COVID-19 makes them feel otherwise. Healthcare workers are already starting to voice out how they feel as though they are being sacrificed as they follow through their sworn oath. We wouldn’t send our soldiers to war unarmed and without a concrete plan; the same should be expected for our frontliners. How can we send them to battle without proper gear? Why is there still a debate on whether mass testing is needed or not when the experts on that field continuously insist its importance in flattening the curve? Why is this still not the priority when it’s literally our lives on the line? It’s not like the medical experts demanding for mass testing are just stating their opinion about this mindlessly, they studied this laboriously. Make them feel heard so that all the sacrifices that they’re doing and all the deaths of their colleagues are not in vain. More than the words of praises, what our medical professionals truly need right now is TANGIBLE support. Here is to hoping they get that soon. @errren.22

Here is a photograph taken yesterday from the photo shoot I did in our house. ? I really love dressing up and being dolled up, it makes me feel great and confident of who I am ?
I was actually hesitant to post these pictures of mine. My sister eveb asked me to change my Facebook Profile Picture and it took me hours to decide if I should. But, I realized that this is me, the real me. I should be confident of my body and of who I really am.
At the end of the day, I dress up not for other people but for myself ? To all the ladies out there and even gentlemen who are taking a second to think if they should post their pictures, worried about what will others say their body, remember that we just need to be just ourselves. Be confident and let us support each other ? Let us be friends! IG: @romynaaaaaaa_
They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted?
I have forgotten when was the last time we shared a smile - the last time when I saw the glow in your eyes and the last time when you whispered an I love you to me. I have forgotten when, but here I am - writing to you again.
I do not know if you will read this or you will just add this one to my proses and poems that you left unread, but you see, I am still hoping. I am mailing the pain of us to the gods out there - hoping they can take the pain away. I should have gotten over you, but instead of forgetting and accepting our ending, I am writing about us in tissue sheets, carving about us on trees, telling about us on the back of my journals, hoping that a thousand or a million write ups about us, can make me forget about what happened.
I am writing, waiting for the point where I can no longer write anymore, for I have none to tell - but when? I have nothing in me anymore, but the memories of us - and no matter how hard I try put those to its own grave, the memories grow back like lilies in the swamp - painful and beautiful at the same time.
No matter how hard I try to silence those and put it at the back of my mind, those ring back, playing like the favorite song we used to listen. They say heartbreaks turn into poetry and that is what happening to us - but poetry should be dulcet and dreamy, why does ours sound like pain and agony? They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted? Darling, I guess not.
