1975 With a Conditional Delay , with Their New Album

The British alt-rock band ,The 1975 announced their decision to postpone the release of their upcoming album “Notes On A Conditional Form”. The band did not release a reason behind this but many speculate that it may be due to the ongoing Coronavirus crisis. They simply posted a new date , May 22nd and link to pre order on their respective social media accounts.

The announcement also included an artwork and the anticipated 22 song track list! The album has undergone several name changes including “Drive like you do” and “Music for cars”! Thank heavens they stuck with “Notes On A Conditional Form”.

The first song from the album , titled “The 1975”  , released in July 2019 featured environmental activist Greta Thunbergs voice! The song went viral for the same reason and crowds praised the band for the track. Following this the album was set to be released on February 21st 2020. 

However this January they announced that the album would be released after April 24th and a new album cover was revealed, only to be reverted back to the original album cover a few days later. With the announcement of the new May 22nd release date, the band appears to have once again changed the album cover.

They have followed suit of many other artists like Lady Gaga , Sam Smith and more who have chosen to delay the release of their work due to the sensitive times. However, a small number of artists like Dua Lipa, Madison Beer and a few others  have been releasing and debuting their latest work on streaming concerts , giving fans something to look forward to.

 The 1975, however has announced that they will be releasing their ninth song from the album called “”Jesus Christ 2005 God Bless America”! We can’t wait for this , there’s always something to look forward to in these times thanks to all the artists out there!

The Show Must Go On

Home Fest: A Late Late Night Special, special happened and it was a major kick in our rather dull week. A number of stars joined James Corden while he opened up about the medical and mental health of the country. So here is us thinking that this special show was really, actually brought to us by the virus, eh? Here’s what he said about the great equalizer: “This virus has brought us altogether. It’s united us in something. This virus has shown that we are all equal, we are all simply human. This virus doesn’t discriminate in anyway.” 

The show started with a precious first guest, John Legend. Of course, no Legend story is complete with Chrissy Tiegen, so she joined in as well in the live stream from their Los Angeles home. Before performing a song on the piano, the couple had this to say: “The hardest part is just trying to figure out how to entertain the kids. You gain a new respect for what preschool teachers do for five, six hours a day. We are gaining weight and we love it.” We’re honestly glad to hear this; makes us feel better about the rolls we have been inviting. 

After John, Billie Eilish and Finneas joined in also from Los Angeles, playing songs with puppies on their laps and basically making all our days. There was David Blaine, the magician, in there somewhere, and then Dua Lipa came in from London with her whole damn band, phew! A lot happened and the fans were ecstatic with the banter and the freshness of it all. 

Not just this, Italian vocalist, Andrea Bocelli, also joined in to pay tribute to those at the frontlines of the calamity that faces the country. 
Of course, no parliament of the best talent is complete without BTS, so of course they joined in from Seoul. RM said, “I think it’s quite a difficult time for everyone in the world right now. It may seem like we’re isolated but we’re still connected.” 

Ben Platt also performed a song too that was rather emotional and so was Corden towards the end. 

“I found I just get so overwhelmed with sadness in it all really and the truth is what I have realized it’s okay right now to feel a bit sad,” he said. “The best thing we can do is try and breathe through that and try and put our minds in a positive place.” 

Ariana Grande Has “Hair” Own Issues

Ariana Grande flaunted her natural hair on instagram earlier this week , shocking Arianators and celebrities all over the world. She opens up about the damaged showbiz had done to her hair after which she adopted her signature high ponytail style.”get a load a dis,” Grande captioned an au naturale selfie.

 She showed off her bouncy , healthy curls in the picture and even offered her back story. Ariana admitted that her hair was severely damaged due to the bleaching and straightening she endured for her role Cat Valentine on Nickelodeon from 2010 to 2014.  She said that her signature pony with extensions was adopted as her hair would just frizz up if she let it down due to all the damage. 

In a post she revealed that “I wear it in a ponytail because my actual hair is so broken that it looks absolutely ratchet and absurd when I let it down.” Ariana jokingly admitted that she probably had more hair extensions than all drags queens on earth combined! Well Ariana, home is the only place where one can be themselves! 

Fans showered praises on her post lauding her strength to see the bright side even in these perilous times. Her mother Joan showed us how strong their bond was by tweeting approval for her daughter , she tweeted “your natural hair/curls is a world of its own, A magnificent beauty you are inside and out/ made up or natural… I love you.” Well played  Ariana , servin us hair goals! 

As nations stay in lockdown , many artists have been encouraging fans to use this time for self care and introspections. We think Ariana has given us a reason to turn this social distancing into a DIY self care routine time. Make sure you treat yourself right like Ariana treated her hair right!
