People Are Still Trying To Come Down After Fifth Harmony’s Shady Performance At The VMAs

For decades, the MTV VMAs have been known to provide iconic and jaw-dropping moments for fans. Last night was no different and the performers who shook the audience the most were the women of Fifth Harmony. The opening for their performance of “Angel/Down” is one of the most talked-about moments of the VMAs. Why? Well, a fifth member, which most people assume represents ex-member Camila Cabello, was snatched off the stage and it was startling. Here’s what went down.

This is how Fifth Harmony opened their performance.

They literally snatched a fifth person off the stage and snatched everyone’s wigs in the process.

Lauren Jauregui thanked her fans for allowing them to creatively share their story.

What story they were trying to tell remains a mystery since they haven’t released a statement about it.

Fans are speculating about the meaning behind the performance.

Some say that the fifth member being taken off the stage is representative of Camila Cabello jumping out of the group on her own accord. The remaining four members then jump at the same time to represent them jumping together to go forward as a group. Again, it’s all just fan speculation.

When Fifth Harmony showed up on the VMAs stage, there was a lot of chatter about who the fifth member was.

Was Camila Cabello back? Were they all putting aside their differences for an epic performance? Did they get a new member? The answer to all of those questions was no.

People on social media could not believe what they saw.

Camilizers quickly went to Cabello’s defense, calling Fifth Harmony “hypocrites” over the performance.

How are you going to say you have no ill will towards Cabello then you pull that stunt? The people demand answers.

Other people were just simply screaming in disbelief.

A lot of people “screamed” that night, honey.

Some thought it was all a bit much.

Fans who stan both Cabello and Fifth Harmony struggled with the performance.

Some times it best to just act like something didn’t happen so you can live a blissfully ignorant life.

Even “Game Of Thrones” fans switched over to catch the dramatic moment.

Damn. Getting “GoT” fans to take a pause from the show is something to admire, tbh.

Their performance completely overshadowed the highly-anticipated appearance of Taylor Swift’s new music video.

My apologies, but Taylor who?

Okay now. You’ve got our attention, Fifth Harmony. Can we get some clarity?

We’ve all invested time, energy, and social media interactions into this break-up. We need closure too.

Kali Uchis’ “Telepatía” is Becoming a Global Hit Thanks to TikTok

Through the power of TikTok, telepatia kali uchis is going to the top. The Colombian-American singer is sitting comfortably in the top 10 of Spotify’s Top 200 chart in the U.S. thanks to a TikTok trend.

This isn’t the first time that TikTok brought new fame to songs.

TikTok has proven to be quite the catalyst for today’s top hits. The app assisted in getting Olivia Rodrigo’s “drivers license” to the top of Billboard Hot 100 chart, where it remains. TikTok also reinvigorated interest in Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” last year thanks to Doggface’s viral video. Now Uchis is getting her long overdue shine with “Telepatía.”

“Telepatía” is becoming a global hit thanks to the same phenomenon.

At No. 7 on the Spotify U.S. chart, “Telepatía” is the highest-charting Latin song in the country. Bad Bunny’s “Dákiti” with Jhay Cortez is the next closest Latin song at No. 14. “Telepatía” is also making waves across the globe where the song is charting on Spotify’s Viral Charts in 66 countries and in the Top Songs Charts of 32 countries.

There’s also plenty of “Telepatía” memes.

Uchis is turning the viral song’s success into strong sales and streaming. On this week’s Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart, “Telepatía” debuts at No. 10, marking her first top 10 hit on the chart. There are also memes circulating on other social media apps that are contributing to the song’s virality.

“Telepatía” is one of the key cuts on Uchis’ debut Latin album, Sin Miedo (del Amor y Otros Demonios). It’s the best example of her translating that alternative soul music that she’s known for into Spanish. The song is notably in Spanglish as Uchis sings about keeping a love connection alive from a distance. It’s timely considering this era of social distancing that we’re in during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Uchis is currently nominated for a Grammy Award. She’s up for Best Dance Recording for her feature on Kaytranada’s “10%” song.

Kehlani Dresses as Both Prom King and Queen on Cover of ‘Playboy’, Talks Feeling Comfortable in Both Gender Roles

Kehlani Dresses as Both Prom King and Queen on Cover of ‘Playboy’, Talks Feeling Comfortable in Both Gender Roles

Kehlani has long been open about the fluid nature of her gender expression. That’s why it’s exciting that the R&B star is experimenting with different facets of her personality on the most recent cover of Playboy.

In a bold move, Kehlani appears on Playboy‘s latest cover dressed in both (traditionally) women and (traditionally) men’s clothing.

And as if one Kehlani isn’t exciting enough, the magazine cover treats us to two versions of this Oakland native. On the left side of the magazine, Kehlani is dressed up as a Prom Queen, complete with a resplendent gown and a tiara. On the cover’s right side, Kehlani is dressed in Prom King drag: her tie undone, her collar open, her crown askew.

She shared the picture to her personal Instagram page with the cheeky caption: “I always wanted to date me.”

In the accompanying interview, Kehlani talks about gender identity and expression, motherhood, and owning her sexuality.

When Kehlani was asked how she defines masculinity and femininity, Kehlani got refreshingly candid. “I’ve discovered that I’ve run from a lot of femininity,” she admitted. “I was way more comfortable in a more masculine space. I feel more masculine when I am in my stillness and I’m grounded in a quiet, contemplative mode.”

She then explained that she feels “most feminine” when she’s “being the mother of my house.” (Kehlani had a baby girl named Adeya Nomi in 2019). She also explained that she “feels her femininity” when she ‘s indulging in self-care, like soaking in a flower-filled bath, or doing a hair mask.

“My femininity makes me feel soft and gentle and tender and careful in a different way than my masculinity makes me feel,” she said. “I’m trying not to let it fall into the gender norms of feminine and masculine, but for me it does a tiny bit. But I also am very fluid in both of those settings.”

Kehlani has always been open about her fluid sexuality and gender identity.

In 2018, she tweeted: “Not bi, not straight. I’m attracted to women, men, REALLY attracted to queer men, non-binary people, intersex people, trans people”.

But of course, haters on the internet accused her of “queer-baiting”–that is, pretending she’s queer to get more LGBT fans and attract attention. In an interview with The Guardian last year, she revealed why the accusation frustrates her.

“I’ve had girlfriends in front of people’s faces, right under their noses, and they weren’t famous and so nobody cared to make it public,” she said. “So they automatically assume that I must like men more than women.”
