It's a counter to "thank u, next"

Queen of teasing new songs, Ariana Grande has finally released the second single from her upcoming album.

While "thank u, next" found Grande singing about getting over her exes, "Imagine" finds her back in love again—or at least picturing herself that way. "We could light up 'til I'm 'sleep on your chest," she sings. "Love how my face fits so good in your neck/ Why can't you imagine a world like that?"

Grande told a fan on Twitter that the song is about "a simple, beautiful love that is now (and forever) unattainable." She says it's a counter track to "thank u, next," and another song on her upcoming album, "seven rings," both of which are "super self assured," and "commanding," while this one is more "vulnerable" and "unsure." She writes: "I wanted to mix up the energy a lil bit as both of those themes are equally prevalent on the album / in my life rn."

It might not be the world John Lennon imagined up, but it is Ari's—one full of love and whistles and wonder and sometimes denial. She also said on Twitter that the track is about pretending a relationship never ended, but that different people might take away something totally different from the song depending on what they're going through. Listen to the song below and interpret it as you will.

When the second season of Big Little Lies premiered, we all ran into the wall that was Shailene Woodley's character Jane's blunt bangs. Seriously, the look was so controversial that tons of people on Twitter started pointing it out, and wondering who made that character decision. Well, Woodley herself has straightened it out for us.

While she wished Tana Mongeau a happy birthday on one account, her other one paints a different picture

If you're in YouTube and influencer culture as deep as the rest of the internet, you already know that Tana Mongeau and Jake Paul got engaged yesterday. How does Mongeau's ex, actress Bella Thorne, feel about the situation? According to her official Instagram account, she's totally supportive of her. But, as is usually the case, her (what I call) Finsta tells the more realistic story.

"And then she cried the white girl cry"

I'm not sure I'd even call the ongoing spat between Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus a beef. We've seen Minaj in real beef, like her ongoing feud with Cardi B that culminated in some major Fashion Week drama. But even though things aren't that level between Minaj and Cyrus, things are still definitely not okay.

Amanda Bynes has just graduated with the Class of 2019 from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles. Late Monday evening, Bynes shared a photo to Twitter celebrating the achievement, posing alongside a classmate in her cap and gown.

TMZ shared additional selfies with fellow classmates from the graduation ceremony. Sources told TMZ that Bynes seemed "ecstatic," and that she was "getting tons of love from her teachers and peers."

The actress has been enrolled at the school since 2014, though, as Page Six notes, was kicked out for a short period of time toward the beginning of her studies, but returned and completed her program within five years.

In March of this year, Bynes checked into a mental health facility after an alleged relapse, following four years of sobriety. Prior to that, she had returned to the public in late 2018 with an interview with Paper in which she opened up about her experience with depression after the release of She's The Man, as well as her drug use.
