OMG. She's actually gone and done it, hasn't she? It appears that, despite that Elon Musk tweet, Grimes may have finally fulfilled her body-modification wishes and got herself some elf ears. This is obviously what happens when you watch too much Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. The Book 1 and 2 era is about to be totally iconic, I fear!
Just got a mix back for “the infinite assassin” once my babies sleep I shall be checking mixes

MIDNIGHTS SEASON APPROACHING, BABY. Does this mean Jack Antonoff is finally going to have a new favorite Taylor Swift song that isn't "august?" What a tease.

LADY GAGA APOLOGIZED TO HER LITTLE MONSTERS
— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) September 18, 2022
It's hard to not feel for Lady Gaga after she was forced to apologize for cutting short the final date of the Chromatica Ball in Miami on Saturday due to lightning strikes. But the fact Mother Monster chose to put the safety of her fans first over her show is honestly deserving of our endless respect. To quote Gaga: "Chromatica will never be over!"

CARDI B SERVED MARILYN MONROE IN COURT
— Cardi B (@iamcardib) September 15, 2022
Leave it to Cardi B to turn a court appearance into a serve for the ages. From the curly red Marilyn Monroe tresses to the oversized sunglasses, Cardi B was clearly determined to use this moment of bad press to her advantage. And while she may have pleaded guilty on Thursday, Cardi is at least accepting full responsibility for her actions!

PHOEBE BRIDGERS WAS CONFUSED BY STAN TWITTER
— traitor joe (@phoebe_bridgers) September 17, 2022
Ask not "why," Phoebe Bridgers, ask "why not?" LOL. Something tells me the Punisher star hasn't spent much time doomscrolling through the darkest depths of Stan Twitter going by her confused reaction to this "Scott Street''-Succession fancam hybrid. As for me, I found this edit truly moving, particularly when Logan slaps Roman. Powerful stuff!

LIL NAS X GAVE US HIS FIERCEST LOOK TO DATE
— SAFFA (@LilNasX) September 17, 2022
That moment when Lil Nas X accidentally exposes a troll's racist views after posting a photo of himself looking badass. Anyways, haters aside, this has got to be Nas X's fiercest look to date? It's giving Final Fantasy, it's giving Lady Gaga circa "Poker Face," and you're goddamn right it's giving me life. Bring on "STAR WALKIN'" on Friday!

MARIAH CAREY CELEBRATED 25 YEARS OF BUTTERFLY
I poured into every lyric and every note on every song. 25 years later, it's still one of the proudest moments of my life & career. To celebrate #Butterfly25, I'm releasing new remixes, live performances, acapellas & a new version of "The Roof" with the one and only @4everBrandy! pic.twitter.com/V0vrnZ9CgL
— Mariah Carey (@MariahCarey) September 16, 2022
She recently announced she plans on releasing her secret grunge album she recorded in the 90s, but on Friday, Mariah Carey took to Twitter to instead celebrate the 25th anniversary of Butterfly. I'm so happy to see Mariah's "magnum opus" is finally getting recognized as one of the greatest R&B albums of all time. Right, Tyler, the Creator?

Just over a year on from the flop that was Better Mistakes, Bebe Rexha is back, b*itches. With her David Guetta banger "I'm Good (Blue)" currently topping the charts around the world, Bebe is living proof you should never give up on your dreams. *Sings* "I'm good, yeah, I'm feelin' alright/Baby, I'ma have the best f*ckin' night of my life!"

REBECCA BLACK GOT PAPPED IN AUSTRALIA

— Rebecca Black (@MsRebeccaBlack) September 14, 2022
LMAO. It's the "But Rebecca Black, now 25, looked completely unrecognisable as she posed with fans on the streets of Sydney this week while out with her rumoured girlfriend Veronika" for me. Because of course the aging process stops at 13? Anyways, Rebecca is looking happy and healthy in these pap pics, which is all that really matters!
