Get ready for the singer’s first track in English

If you aren't already obsessed with Quebecois singer MUNYA, you're about to be. MUNYA, aka Josie Boivin, is gearing up to release her Delmano EP on October 5, named after the Brooklyn bar Hotel Delmano (it's also the name of her lead single). Today, Boivin reveals the second track off the EP, "If I'm Gone Tomorrow (It's Because of Aliens)." Traditionally, the singer only writes and performs in French, but this track marks her first release completely in English. 

Don't think you know what the track will be just because of its title—it's ethereal and kinda spacey, sure, but it's not necessarily a ballad on extraterrestrial conspiracy theories. “When I was a kid, I really loved the movie Independence Day,” Boivin tells us. “One night years later, I was home alone, and I kept hearing really weird loud noises, not like a truck driving by but a truck crashing into a building over and over. It freaked me out so bad I called my boyfriend and told him that if I’m gone tomorrow it’s because of aliens... he wouldn't stop laughing at me. I was so mad he wouldn't take me seriously. I didn't sleep that night and, instead, wrote this breakup song." 

You might need a few listens through to realize that Boivin was dumping someone, because her lofty falsetto had me daydreaming of something sweet even though she was actively breaking someone's heart.

We talk to the stars and creator about the show's iconic first season

Veronica Mars is a show that's had more than nine lives over the course of its 15-year run. What began as a teen drama about a young girl-turned-private investigator digging into the mystery of her best friend's murder, has evolved into a universe filled with complex characters, twisting story lines, and a cult following more than happy to go along for the extended ride.

Winchester's Black students got jokes

"If everyone stayed exactly the same, life would be tedious and predictable... like the third season of a Netflix show." That's just one of the not-at-all-subtle winks to its network in the Dear White People Season 3 trailer.

Maybe just... keep scrolling instead

On Thursday, model Ireland Baldwin posted a photo of herself in just a thong with her butt exposed, posing on the balcony of her New York City hotel room. Instead of staying quiet and scrolling past it, like most family members would in this case, both her father Alec and uncle Billy Baldwin just had to post their thoughts on it.
