galactic country music approved by cat power.

When your last name is Phoenix, your band is bound to get a bit of recognition. But for Rain Phoenix and Frally Hynes, star power is certainly not what's taken them this far. Since teaming up, the duo has toured with Cat Power, collaborated with Chris Stills and Rufus Wainwright, and created a new musical genre: galactic country.

Inspired by cosmic energy, particularly of Venus (the planet of love, beauty, and femininity) and the Moon (which incites reflection, intuition, and human emotions), Phoenix and Hynes have crafted their own distinct sound, filled with chilling harmonies and twinkling melodies. Their latest single, "Hungry Ghost," explores the addictive underbelly of relationships. It showcases the duo's raw, experimental nature through dark bridges and atypical instrumentals. And much like the song itself, the video also reflects the instinctive, spontaneous spirit of the group: "The video for 'Hungry Ghost' seemed to have a mind of its own," the group says. "Director Katie Davison shot the dancer at high speed, thinking she would use parts of it in the piece, but when she added the song in the editing bay—the performance lined up perfectly with the track. We loved it and felt it spoke to the soul of 'Hungry Ghost.'"

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.
