On Jan 19, 2019, the Dolan twins, Grayson and Ethan, posted on their Instagram accounts about their father losing his battle with cancer.
The twins first addressed their audience back in Nov. 2016, letting them know they were stressed with the news of their fathers diagnosis.
The twins are best known for their collaborative YouTube channel where they post every Tuesday. Their videos focus on making their audience laugh and let go of their own stress in life by doing random and sometimes dangerous things.
Because of the loss of their father, the twins decided to take a break from the internet so they could mourn.
But because of their large audience, Grayson and Ethan were forced to address their audience, asking them to not show up to their father’s wake or funeral.
Online media outlets have been spamming the internet drawing attention to the issue. Having members of your fan base show up at the funeral, who don’t know the person who has passed personally, is invasive and wrong.
Treating the funeral of your idol’s father as a free meet-up is intrusive.
Luckily, the twins were not bothered by fans during the funeral and are slowly starting to make a comeback to the internet.
Ariana’s Second Number One In Three Months
The internet is BUZZING because of the release of Ariana Grande’s new single, “7 rings.” The song had a sneaky introduction to the fandom when Grande used some of the instrumental in the beginning of her music video for “thank u, next.”
The song was written with intent of discussing her life at the current moment. She also looked forward to telling the story of how she attended a Tiffany & Co. party where she got drunk off of champagne and bought seven engagement rings for her and her friends.
Grande payed close attention to detail with the single by mentioning her riches and how if she wants something, she gets it.
The song includes lines like “I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it,” along with “buy myself all of my favorite things.”
To thoroughly make sure listeners know she’s loaded, she bought out the rights for the melody of the song “My Favorite Things” from “The Sound of Music” for this song.
Even though she used the melody to a different tune, she still managed to make the song her own by changing the melody for the chorus, bridge, and rap.
The song received massive attention with the music video now having over 100 million views in less than two weeks.
The third single “7 rings” followed the release of “thank u, next” and “imagine.” All of the singles are all leading up to the star’s fifth album release on February 8 . The fifth album will include the singles already released along with nine other tracks.
Many are impressed with the fact Grande is already releasing another album six months after the release of Sweetener- which she hasn’t even toured yet. But many who have bought tickets to the Sweetener tour are ecstatic they might be seeing two albums toured at once.
