Sorry, Singapore Beliebers.

Justin Bieber has canceled the remaining dates of his Purpose Tour "due to unforeseen circumstances." based on a statement from his management.

The 23-year-old Canadian popstar had been due to resume his "Purpose" tour with 15 shows across North America and Asia including Singapore, Indonesia and Philippines.

We are still waiting for official statements from the concert promoters but this pretty much sums up what we are feeling right now...

TV series Game Of Thrones is finally back for its 7th season.

Even from its first episode, fans have already been divided: those who enjoyed Ed Sheeran's cameo, and those who don't. While some say that Ed's acting was believable and his character was appropriate, others claim that his appearance threw them off. No matter which side you're taking, fans of the TV series can all agree on one thing: its epic theme song. While we tend to skip the intro for other TV series, doing the same for GOT is unthinkable. 

It comes with no surprise that the GOT theme song has its own league of fans who have made their own versions of it. From metal to acoustic, these 5 cover versions of the GOT theme track is sure to bring you into the magical world of dragons and direwolves.

 
 
 
 
 
 

It felt like any other day; our alarms rang as it did every morning and we clicked on the snooze button only to be rudely awaken for the second time that morning five minutes later.

Little did we expect to be shaken wide awake by yet another alarm that day: the news of Linkin Park's lead singer Chester Bennington's death.

Of all recent celebrity deaths, Chester's suicides hits particularly close to home as he is the first singer whose music accompanied most of us through our adolescence. Many of us have the lyrics from their Meteora and Hybrid Theory albums at the back of our fingers and would not hesistate to sing (or scream) along to the songs whenever we come across one.

Chester's death is undeniably heartbreaking and our thoughts go out to his family and the rest of Linkin Park. His suicide comes as a reminder of the importance of mental health and how depression should never be taken lightly. 

As the world mourns the passing of yet another talented rock star, here are 5 live performances that we would like to remember Chester by.

 

1) Crawling (ft Chris Cornell)

It's hard to believe that we lost both Chester and Chris Cornell in a span of a few months. It's even harder to digest the fact that Chester's death came on what-would-have-been Chris' 53rd birthday. In this performance of Crawling, the voices of these two close friends complements each other perfectly. 

 

2) Rolling In The Deep

Many who have attempted to cover Adele's songs tend to butcher them, but Chester's amazing rendition of Adele's Rolling In The Deep puts his raw vocals in the limelight and it is one to behold.

 

3) Burn It Down (ft Kiiara)

Whether you like Linkin Park's latest album, One More Light, or not, this is the last that we would hear from Chester. In a way, the lyrics are like Chester's last words to all of us.

 

4) Numb/Encore (feat Jay-Z)

The collaboration between Linkin Park and Jay-Z in Collision Course was iconic, to say the least. 

 

4) Hallelujah

Less than two months ago, Chester performed a heartwrenching cover of Hallelujah for Chris's funeral. Chris' widow, Vicky, tweeted this upon hearing the news of Chester's death: "Just when I thought my heart couldn’t break any more…..I love you T.

RIP Chester Bennington. You are missed dearly.

I’m not gonna lie.

I’ve laughed at all the memes and expressed my annoyance over Ed Sheeran’s cameo on Game of Thrones more times that I can count over the past two days.

People were hilarious, we can’t deny that fact.

Sheeran’s scene as a Lannister soldier certainly had an impact on my overall enjoyment of the episode, just like any other millennial who is eagerly following today’s pop culture scene.

Just when you thought you were fully immersed in the fantasy world of Westeros, a familiar face pops up, suddenly reminding you that the show is in fact fictional - way to ruin the sense of escapism there!

Unfortunately, this is not Hannah Montana meets The Suite Life of Zack & Cody. People these days don’t get excited about crossovers anymore.

But after hearing about his sudden disappearance from Twitter due to the mockery, I realized that Sheeran was just a normal fan who wanted to be on his favorite show. I mean, LET THE GUY LIVE!!!

Despite the backlash, Game of Thrones director Jeremy Podeswa has Sheeran's back, even complimenting his performance – "In the world of the show, he did a lovely job, and he looks like he belongs in that world."

We also have other GoT fans who supported the scene, saying that it was an essential part of the storyline.

 

So, there you go! Please remember to be kind to one another, especially to Ed Sheeran. The lad tried, for goodness’ sake!
