After a four-year hiatus, Lorde is back! On June 10, she released the perfect single for the summer, Solar Power. That music video is giving off MEGA Mama Mia vibes. In describing her next album, titled Solar Power as well, Lorde says it’s “a celebration of the natural world, an attempt at immortalizing the deep, transcendent feelings I have when I’m outdoors. In times of heartache, grief, deep love, or confusion, I look to the natural world for answers.” There’s no set release date, but fans are thinking it’ll be released on June 20th, the summer solstice.
A fan reached out to Megan Thee Stallion on Tuesday to share a sad story about her best friend, who recently passed away. In the fan’s tweet, they mentioned there was a GoFundMe set up to help the family pay for the funeral costs. Meg saw this and decided to close the gap by donating about $8,000 to GoFundMe. They shared that their best friend would have been “screaming right now that their favorite artist just paid the rest of their memorial fund”. It’s nice to see how kind people can be, especially when people are going through hard times.
Ariana Grande and James Corden are both theater nerds at heart, and they showed that off on the Late Late Show the other night. The two performed a Hairspray-inspired parody celebration since restrictions being slowly lifted. The entire musical number is worth watching, cause it pretty much captures how happy everyone is to be free. Plus, Good Morning Baltimore is a bop as is, and this parody does it justice.
