More freshly released MVs, Cara Delevingne’s awkward interview and her proving that she’s the boss! Here’s what you missed last week!

Cara Delevinge’s painfully awkward interview

If you haven’t heard about the cringe worthy interview Good Morning Sacramento did with actress and model Cara Delevigne about the release of the film Paper Towns, have you been living under a rock?

Delevingne appeared live on Good Day Sacramento the morning after her final premiere for the film and it didn’t exactly start off well when the news anchor introduced her as “Carla”. You are a news anchor right? Learn how to pronounce pro-per-ly.

Well, the whole interview just went downhill from there. They asked her if she’d ever read the book, to which they got this sarcastic reply.

Then the news anchor commented that Delevingne seemed “irritable” and said: “Maybe it’s just us.” To which she shot back with the sassiest response.

At the end of the interview, the news anchor told her: “You go take a nap, have a Red Bull, how about that?” Which resulted in this reaction from Delevingne, we all rolled our eyes with her.

After the interview ended and she was off-screen, the hosts continued to comment on her “attitude”. Which is not very professional, people!

Delevingne soon posted an update to Twitter over the matter.

And followed up with this Instagram image of her holding up a copy of Paper Towns, proving that she’s the boss!

 

I JUST FOUND THIS BOOK! ITS AWESOME!

YOU GO CARA!

Wonder Girls ‘REBOOT’s with ‘I Feel You’

Wonder Girls are finally back with 3rd album ‘REBOOT’ and title song ‘I Feel You’! The song is written by J.Y. Park and is a 80s pop-sounding song that combines synth instruments with a catchy rhythm, we are loving the track! With Sunmi back as part of a quartet, Yenny on the piano, Yubin on the drums, Sunmi on the bass guitar, and Lim on the guitar. It’s not all for show! They really do know how to play the instruments, having to take part in the recording themselves. Check out the MV and let us know if you love it!

Choi Siwon to enlist soon

Super Junior’s Siwon will be the seventh member to enter the military, following Shindong and Sungmin. When will we be bidding goodbye to him as he enlists for his mandatory military service? Reports state that Siwon is planning to enlist after his upcoming drama ‘She Was Pretty’.

SM Entertainment confirmed the news stating, “Choi Siwon will be enlisting after he completes the MBC drama ‘She Was Pretty’. The exact time period hasn’t been decided on yet. After he wraps up his drama, he’ll prepare and enter the military as an active duty soldier.” We will miss our Won Won dearly.

First iKon, now DAY6. JYP Entertainment has finally released news on their upcoming boy group. DAY6 (formerly known as 5Live) are preparing for their official debut with six members! JYPE told TVDaily, “6 member boy group DAY6 are preparing for their debut. The details on their debut have not been decided yet.”

The confirmed members include former ‘K-Pop Star’ contestant Park Jaehyung, Kang Younghyun, who featured in Baek Ah Yeon’s song “Shouldn’t Have”, as well as Kim Wonpil, Park Sungjin, Im Joonhyuk and Yoon Doyoon. You’ll recognise most of them from that ‘WIN’ episode where the YG trainees competed with JYP trainees!

Shinee Drops MV for ‘Married to the Music’

SHINee doesn’t cease to delight and impress with their quirky and captivating new MV in which they have fun partying and weird things happened to them like, Key had his head chopped off, Taemin had his eyes hit out of him with a bat, Onew dropped his nose while washing his face and Jonghyun had his lips stolen after kissing a girl. You’ll see a combination of all their facial parts on (presumably) Minho’s body at the end of the MV.

Finnick and Katniss were featured in the video, fighting these creatures as they attempt to enter the city.

Tao’s solo MV taken down by SM Entertainment

Tao-Comeback

Tao-Solo-MV-Blocked

Tao (Z.Tao) has revealed the dark, moody and trippy music video for his Chinese solo debut song, ‘T.A.O’ on the 23rd July. However fans have noted that it’s been taken down one day after “due to a copyright claim by SM Entertainment“. This has been grabbing a lot of attention amidst the feud that appears to be going on between Tao and agency, yet no word from either. Only time will tell we guess.

Fan responses range from amusement to disbelief and from agreement that this was the right course of action that SM Entertainment would get in the way. What are your thoughts about this?

5 Life Lessons We Learned From Koda Kumi

23 Jul 2015 by Chew Hui Ling

Koda Kumi is one of the hottest personalities in showbiz, and why not? The J-pop bombshell boasts a stage presence that can only be outshined by her sultry vocals, but when it comes to assets – it’s undeniably her voluptuous bod, honed from 15 years of donning risque costumes. So it struck us as a surprise when we realised just how inspirational the real Kumi is. Greeting the media at the press conference for her first ever solo concert in Singapore (like, finally!), the 32-year-old opened up about her insecurities, inner beauty, and female-empowering ideals.

1. Feel confident in what you wear.

“I like to pick stage costumes that flatter my body shape, typically one-piece outfits that’s one-of-a-kind and not typically seen on anyone else. I’d usually take into consideration the era [of my concert] and what trends are popular during the time of the year.”

2. Embrace your insecurities.

“Actually, I’ve never thought of myself as sexy. I do have low self-esteem sometimes, and there are some parts of myself that I don’t feel confident about at all. When that happens, I turn to fashion to cover up my flaws and boost my confidence.”

3. Who run the world? Girls.

“Rather than having guys associate me with the word ‘sexy’, I’d prefer to be viewed as a cool, strong and independent figure from the female crowd instead.”

4. Express yourself, impress everyone.

“Personally, I feel that summer is a season where I could freely express myself and be comfortable in my own skin, so I’d pick tracks that best reflect the summer image. As an artiste, I was proud to have achieved the ‘Koda Kumi voice’ back in 2006, which is why I selected songs after ’06 to be included in my summer compilation album.”

5. Be yourself and you can be anything.

“As I age, I put more emphasis on inner beauty rather than what’s on the outside. After 15 years in the industry, I realised that being yourself is the most important thing. People can say what they want to say, but you should always maintain your stance and be yourself no matter what.”

More scandals, summer comebacks and BIGBANG in Singapore! Here’s a recap of what happened in the entertainment world last week.

Tao to make a solo comeback

Tao-Comeback

We are trying to remain optimistic regarding Tao’s status as an EXO member but a flurry of social media activity seem to point out that all hope is lost. Everyone noticed that Tao went on an unfollowing spree and unfollowed everyone on his Instagram account. And to make matters worse, Baekhyun and Chanyeol unfollowed Tao on their Instagram accounts too. Tao also deleted the phrase “EXO member” from his Weibo account.

Meanwhile, Tao, aka Z.TAO, revealed more details of his upcoming solo debut, which has been scheduled for July 23. While we can always hope for the best but it looks like Tao will not be part of EXO any longer.

Super Junior drops MV for ‘Devil’

Time to sell our souls to the ‘Devil’ as we swoon at this hot new MV from Super Junior! With a dramatic, action-packed, film noir-inspired theme for the MV, is it getting hot in the room or what? Each member looking smoking hot in suits and sunglasses whether they’re wielding guns, riding a motorcycle, playing poker or interrogating a pretty lady.

1D’s Louis Tomlinson is going to be a Dad

Briana Jungwirth, a stylist, is having a baby with One Direction star Louis Tomlinson, 23! She has been spotted out for the first time since the pregnancy news was revealed earlier last week. The 23-year-old looked casual as she emerged from a shop after picking up some food.

The twosome, who are now close friends, had a brief fling in May this year, around two months after he ended his long-term relationship with girlfriend Eleanor Calder. It has been reported that the 1D pop star, who rose to fame with the successful boy band back in 2010 on The X Factor, is intending to support Briana every step of the way throughout pregnancy and motherhood. 

A Pink comes back with ‘Remember’

A Pink has done it again! They’ve released another sweet song for their summer comeback with their signature 90’s sound. ‘Remember’ starts off with a nice music box instrumental and simple vocals before erupting into their bubbly, cheery style of music. We’ve got this down as one of our summer anthems already.

Sun & Sohee to leave Wonder Girls

Although it’s already been revealed that Wonder Girls would promote as a quartet with Sunmi, Yubin, Lim, and Yenny, many still held hope that Sohee and Sun would promote with the girls at a later date.

Those hopes have now fizzled as the dreaded news was finally announced. In a brief statement to the press, JYP Entertainment wrote, “Sunye and Sohee, both active as Wonder Girls members, have withdrawn from the team. Wonder Girls will accordingly promote as a four member group with Yeeun, Yubin, Sunmi, Hyelim.” JYP explained that Sun terminated her contract to devote her time to her family. Sohee on the other hand, has not been under contract with JYP for some time, she withdrew from the group to focus on her individual pursuits.

Despite their withdrawal, both girls are very supportive of the Wonder Girls comeback preparations. We wish them all the best!
