What is wrong with you people?

Multi-platinum recording girl group Fifth Harmony just released their highly anticipated music video for their latest single All In My Head (Flex) with hip hop artist Fetty Wap and the Internet went bonkers.

(Please note that while referring to the Internet, we are neither targeting the fans nor the trolls because we cannot 100% prove the identity of anyone with just a screen name and display picture. So for the purpose of this article, we are just going to refer to them as 'the Internet'.)

Okay, back to the main point. After watching the MV, like almost any curious mind out there, we scrolled through the comments section on YouTube. And what we found there were some really nasty remarks coupled with unsatisfied viewers. (Where's the love man?) Okay, there're just so many to talk about so let's break it down for you.

Firstly, the type of comment that we found the most goes along the lines of "all they do is sing about sex with almost no clothes on". The majority of the comments were talking about how Fifth Harmony is still considered a young group of girls and shouldn't be singing about nothing but sex. They were also not too pleased that the swimsuits that they were wearing in the video were showing off too much skin.

Secondly, we found people commenting on how the girls are trying too hard to be sexy but aren't at all. They feel as though they are trying to use the sex appeal method to sell their music because of their similar previous successful hits like Worth It and Work from Home.

Thirdly, (and we think that this is the worst one of all) people were body-shaming some of the girls. The 5H girls have different body shapes, some of them are thin while others are thicker. And what we like about the fabfive is that they embrace all. The comments bashing the curvier girls in the group are just disgusting and disrespectful.

In conclusion, we know that people are entitled to their opinions but there are just some things that we need to change from what we think, say and do. Expressing one's thoughts in a constructive way is very different from just setting out to destroy someone's value. "Be responsible. Think before you comment." is just one piece of advice we would like to put out there.

Just when we thought she could not get anymore adorable.

Should we say "finally"??? The time since Selena Gomez teased her Carpool Karaoke with James Corden on her socials till the actual date the video dropped felt like eternity. Not only because the video was released like weeks later but also because there were quite a number of Carpool Karaoke sessions that were made known to us in between.

Okay, enough about how we were waiting (im)patiently for what seemed like forever. Let's move on to why we have all gathered here today and that is to break down for you the 5 moments we absolutely love in this 12 minutes and 12 seconds of goodness. Let's GO! ;)

 

1. Singing & Dancing on a Roller Coaster

How does she even do it??? We reckon we would probably be James rather than Selena on that roller coaster. 

 

2. Getting Embarrassed at McDonald's

Can someone say AWKWARD!!! Oh my when James was demanding for SelGo lyrics on the McDonald's cup, it was hilarious yet strangely embarrassing for the pop star as well. 

 

3. Pretending to Care about the Opinions of her Squad

Sel's reactions to James' comments on her squad being sexist because there are no male counterparts are 100, shows that they are secure in who they are and nobody can tell them otherwise! WOO!

 

4. Mark of Success: Making Fun of Herself

You know you made it when people make fun of you. Now that's new!

 

5. Jamming to the Best Line EVER!!!

Well. come on!!! Isn't this everybody's favourite line in Hands To Myself?

*****

For the millionth time, can we please be in the boot of one of these Carpool Karaokes? We feel left out all the time when we see our faves jamming out and having the time of their lives in that 4-wheeled vehicle!

What is YOUR favourite moment from the SelGo Carpool Karaoke? Do let us know by leaving us a tweet! We always love to hear what you have to say!

Being pretty much a social media addict, I am always scrolling through my Twitter and Facebook feed. And I chanced upon this…

Forget all the other remixes, this is the only one we need right now. Tronicbox puts on an 80s spin on today’s most popular hits. Here are some of his amazing works; we hope to see more come along!

 

One Last Time by Ariana Grande

 

What Do You Mean by Justin Bieber

 

And the full version of that snippet from Twitter, Sugar by Maroon 5

Personally, I found these remixes strangely amazing. We want to know what do you guys think of these remixes?

It’s been a little more than a week since the shooting at Pulse Nightclub, a gay club in Orlando, left 49 people dead. 49 people that were just out to have a fun time had their lives robbed due to a hate crime.

In the wake of such a tragedy, the deadliest mass shooting by a single gunman in US history, Christina Aguilera has released a song demanding an end to senseless discriminatory violence.

The song, Change, aims to make the world a ‘beautiful inclusive place where humanity can love each other freely and passionately’.

To show her support for the families of the victims, Xtina has pledged to donate 100% of the profits from the single's iTunes purchases to the National Compassion Fund, which supports victims and families affected by the nightclub shootings.

Her record labels and co-writers have also agreed to donate all proceeds from sales of the single to charity. Unsurprisingly, the single has taken to the top of the charts all around the world, all for charity.

The song itself is more or less your average ballad featuring Christina’s signature vocals bringing the track from a 7/10 to a 9.

Check out the personal lyric video below and purchase it on iTunes to directly benefit the victims and their families of the tragedy.

When Warner Bros. dropped the first official trailer for Suicide Squad early this year, the sequences of the grittily humorous flick were leashed by very well-utilised snippets of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody.

Matching the action and snappy dialogue beat for beat, the famously erratic anthem (roughly divided into initial piano balladry and Brian May’s headbang-mandatory riffs) was the perfect tonal accompaniment for a film about a diverse cast of loose cannon criminals coerced into doing some honest-to-god superhero work.

Suicide Squad: The Album will feature a roster similarly jam-packed with huge names that make for an unorthodox team-up.  

Top of the track list is Panic! at the Disco’s cover of the aforementioned Queen classic – a regular spectacle incorporated into their live set now fully realised on record. To say we’re thrilled that Brendon Urie’s pipes were captured for this would be an understatement.

While label mates twenty one pilots have already managed to clog up the comment sections with their contribution, Heathens, the OST also promises other original songs from the likes of Skylar Grey, Kehlani and most prominently, the Art Angel herself, Grimes.

Interestingly enough, collaboration appears to be the name of the game with Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Imagine Dragons, Logic, Ty Dolla $ign and X Ambassadors all crammed into one song and Action Bronson, The Black Keys’s Dan Auerbach and Mark Ronson on another. Skrillex and Rick Ross’s Purple Lamborghini on the other hand, is reporttedly set to star Jared Leto (of 30 Seconds To Mars fame) in full Joker garb.

The inclusion of Eminem’s Without Me is a nice nod to the music video which saw the rapper dressed as Robin the Boy Wonder (and Dr. Dre as Blade), adding more fuel to the already roasting Death in the Family fire.

With legendary composer Hans Zimmer (The Dark Knight trilogy, Batman v Superman, Sherlock Holmes) retiring from the “superhero business,” the Suicide Squad soundtrack does seem like a breath of fresh air, just weird enough to achieve mission success for Task Force X.

1. Purple Lamborghini – Skrillex & Rick Ross
