What’s your favourite Bruno Mars tune to jam out too? Let us know the comment section!
Is that you Taylor Swift?! Turns out, our favourite celebrities have their very own doppelgängers, and their uncanny similarities are equal amounts of freaky and amazing. Would you be able to tell them apart?
Taylor Swift VS April Gloria
Nope, that isn’t actually Tay Tay. Meet April Gloria, the cosplayer that bears an uncanny resemblance to the ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ songstress without even trying. From Taylor’s red lips to her signature cat-eye, and even her shaggy haircut, April’s got Tay’s mug down to a T!
Ariana Grande VS Jacky Vasquez
With a twinning level so high even Ariana’s own cousin couldn’t tell them apart, Ariana Grande and Jacky Vasquez share a penchant for high ponytails, cat-winged eyeliner and long lashes, and have similar doll-like features – right down to Ari’s famous dimples. If you’d also like to look like the ‘Dangerous Woman’ diva, 20-year-old Jacky recommends learning how to achieve Ari’s signature pony tail, makeup style and camera poses.
Ed Sheeran VS Ty Jones
Turns out, there’s another ginger Teddy on planet Earth, but it seems like looking like a carbon copy of Ed Sheeran hasn’t been a bed of roses for 22-year-old Ty Jones. As the self-proclaimed “Ed’s Evil Twin” shared in previous interviews, the striking resemblance had brought him perks like TV gigs and even a hangout sesh with Ed himself, but it did have some drawbacks when it came to his love life. For example, Ed’s fans would constantly approach Ty for photos (which quite annoyed his ex-girlfriends), and he had to also re-evaluate potential dates to discern if they were only being with him because he was the “next best thing” to Ed. Thankfully, all this hasn’t affected Ty’s love for the ‘Thinking Out Loud’ singer, and he describes meeting Ed as “the highlight of all this”.
Katy Perry VS Francesca Brown
Constantly being mistaken for Katy Perry ever since the songstress released ‘I Kissed A Girl’ back in 2008, actress Francesca Brown reportedly struggled at auditions because of their resemblance. In the end – after attempts at changing up her look didn’t work out thanks to Katy’s ever-evolving style – Francesca accepted a job offer as a Katy Perry impersonator and the rest is history! Perhaps she could double up as Zooey Deschanel too?
Emma Watson VS Meghan Flockhart
We know what you’re thinking, but no – Meghan Flockhart’s resemblance to Emma (and Hermione) doesn’t have anything to do with Polyjuice Potion. Funnily enough, Meghan only realised how similar they looked after dressing up as Hermione for Halloween – since then, she even had to dye her hair in efforts to minimise the “intense” Emma Watson compliments from fans. Consider us Stupified!
Zayn Malik VS Burak Deniz
The Internet has been seeing quite a few Zayn dopplegangers as it is, but Burak Deniz, a Turkish actor who has appeared in the Turkish version of Pretty Little Liars and Shameless is the most famous (and hottest) one yet. Who even knew that the chiselled bone structure was even replicable on anyone else?!
Gigi Hadid VS Iza Ijzerman
If you thought Gigi Hadid looked similar to her sister Bella Hadid, then one look at Dutch model Iza Ijzerman would have you wondering if Gigi actually had a secret twin – especially since they’re both the same age. And it looks like they favour similar beauty styles; tousled blonde waves and minimal makeup that show off their gorgeous features. Wouldn’t it be freaky if Zayn, Gigi, Iza and Burak went on a double date?
Selena Gomez VS Sofia Solares
Sofia Solares definitely had us doing a double take when we first laid eyes on this SelGo lookalike. And with over 445K followers on Instagram, it seems like this Mexican beauty has got the Internet mesmerised too – much like Selena Gomez herself!
Kim Kardashian & Kylie Jenner VS Sonia & Fyza Ali
The Kardashian-Jenners have more than their fair share of lookalikes, what with the part they played in changing up industry beauty standards, but the Ali sisters undeniably bear the most resemblance of the lot. Sonia and Fyza, who are based in Dubai and are rising names in the Middle Eastern beauty scene themselves, have previously denied rumours that they underwent plastic surgery to get “the Kardashian look”. They’re definitely just born with it!

From the Kardashian clan due to expand to new venues to catch your blockbusters, we bring you the latest headlines (you might’ve missed) to keep you in the loop.

The Kardashian family sure has a way of staying in the public eye – it’s no wonder that they recently celebrated their 10th year anniversary of their hit reality series Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Kylie Jenner first made the headlines when news of her rumoured pregnancy broke. In between finding extended success with her Kylie Cosmetics line and TV show Life of Kylie, it’ll be interesting to see how the young beauty mogul will juggle her empire and motherhood. And what’s better than one pregnancy announcement? How ’bout two! Khloe Kardashian has also been revealed to be expecting child with boyfriend Tristan Thompson, due early 2018, a wish she has expressed for many years. Not forgetting that Kim also has a surrogate baby on the way, which makes a grand total of three new Kardashian members to add to the family next year! We’re calling it – Keeping Up With The Kardashians: The Next Generation will premiere in 2030.

Rejoice Eastsiders! If you haven’t already heard, there’s a spankin’ new Golden Village at the reopened SingPost Centre Mall to check out, which even brags of a laser projection for sharper picture quality. It comes just days after Cathay Cinema also announced a new screening complex at Parkway Parade, giving us more options for those impromptu movie plans.
Bad Rep For Influencers
The words ‘exposé’ and ‘Xiaxue’ are synonymous with each other, with the latter ruthlessly revealing embarrassing information of parties who’ve attempted to take her down previously. And on an otherwise typical Sunday recently, Xiaxue dropped a bombshell of a video, where she took to the almighty Internet to analyse which Singaporean bloggers and influencers ‘bought’ followers on Instagram via an analytical online app SocialBlade to surprising results. Watch for yourself, and guess what we’ve been randomly doing since then?
YouTube comedian Hirzi also shared his sensible insights on the influencer scene and gave his sound advice on the whole matter, which you can view below.
For ardent Gong Cha fans, you have a reason to stop patronising other bubble tea brands come December, because the familiar taste we all know and love is back soon! Judging from the decals pasted at the new SingPost Centre Mall outlet undergoing renovation, it also indicates that it’ll be Singapore’s flagship store, meaning there’ll be more islandwide outlets to look forward to. We can’t wait to sneak in our milk teas into the new GV cinema to catch a flick!
The iOS Mess
Think twice before you upgrade your iOS for your phone. Apple users have took to social media to voice their displeasure at the smartphone’s latest system upgrade, which causes one or more of the following: faster battery drain, app crashes, frozen lock screen and weak Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections. A sly marketing ploy to get users to buy the new models iPhone 8 and iPhone X? Or sheer coincidence? You be the judge.
Amos Yee Granted Asylum

Notorious rebel Amos Yee’s patriotism (or lack thereof) is taking a further drift from Singapore, all the way to the USA. Despite being incarcerated for 8 months, it seems jail time has only made him even more headstrong on his pro-free speech views. The 18-year-old stepped out in Chicago recently a free man, with a firm goal in mind: “The plan is to make more and more videos. I came here to escape the horrible anti-free speech laws in Singapore. Now I can get back to work, get back to my life”, he told The Straits Times.
