"Harry Styles becomes the second One Direction alum to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart this week, recording 230,000 equivalent units and 193,000 in pure sales of his self-titled debut album — notably beating Zayn Malik’s opening numbers for last year’s Mind Of Mine, not that anyone is keeping track. In fact, per Billboard, it’s the best first-week sales total for a UK male in the US since the dawn of the SoundScan era in 1991, besting Sam Smith’s In The Lonely Hour. " Wait, seriously, have you all forgotten about Ed Sheeran already? Just because he has red hair he is still considered an Englishman and not an Irishman... "÷ debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 with 451,000 (!!!) album-equivalent units, of which 322,000 were pure album sales." (Wikipedia)

I wanted to conclude that comment with a heart symbol made with < and 3 after "Sister" but, unfortunately, that didn't work. You got no heart, Stereogum!

Man, I really want to like her but the things that happen to her (I don't want to say "things she has said/done") make it difficult for me to root for her. She has charisma, talent and intelligence. She just needs to grow a thicker skin.

Uuugh, that Blue Ivy vine makes me hate Rita Ora even more. And makes me feel a bit sorry for her peer Jessie J.

It is not cool bragging about the fact that you hit someone with a douchey reputation even though you acted in self-defense.

November 27, 2015 on Coldplay – “Everglow” (Feat. Gwyneth Paltrow)
The music video for Let It Happen and especially this one perfectly visualize the musical transition from Lonerism to the poppier Currents. It is still a somehow psychedelic trip and little bit weird, but at the same time a glossier video financed by a bigger budget. Awesome visuals!

Well, that's exactly what Mrs. Newsom was trying to say in that part of the article. Also: banana = Spotify = Banana Music. Spotify is the banana version of Apple Music.
