She’s The Dorkiest And Derpiest Pop Star Right Now, But Her Song Is Super Sexual. . . How?

These are some weird “Would You Rather” questions.

Fifth Harmony’s Camila Cabello and rapper Machine Gun Kelly just played the weirdest “Would You Rather” game on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.” The two musicians sat down to answer some fan-submitted questions that got pretty weird. It left us wondering what is going on with their fan bases. Here are some of the weirder questions Machine Gun Kelly and Camila Cabello had to answer.

Fans wanted to know if they would replace their fingers with eyelashes.

*quietly worries about society*

Both decided to have eyelash fingers over finger eyelashes for obvious reasons.

Most of us already have trouble explaining bruises just from being clumsy. Why add black eyes to the mix?

There was a gene splicing question that left the two musicians confused.

Neither?

Machine Gun Kelly took the moment to compliment Cabello’s head…

Eventually, the two agreed that having a cow’s head and a human body was the way to go.

Okay. Clearly the fans have a thing with swapping animal species with each other.

Yet, most importantly, this question helped us discover that Cabello is scared of ducks.

Camila, as long as we live we promise you will never have to face off with a horse-sized duck.

Here’s How Julio Torres Convinced Lin-Manuel Miranda To Play A Little Cactus On An HBO Special

Julio Torres may have just achieved next level respect and stardom because all he had to do to get thee Lin-Manuel Miranda to play the voice of a tiny cactus in his upcoming HBO special was DM him. During an interview on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show, Torres hinted at the presence of some big-name cameos in his HBO comedy special, My Favorite Shapes. 

The most obvious cameo that Torres could think of would be the infamous Pulitzer Prize-winning screenwriter, composer and actor Lin-Manuel Miranda playing a “self-conscious cactus.” Of course. Torres has had a successful career behind the screen thus far. Born in El Salvador, Torres began writing for Saturday Night Live, where he initially met Lin-Manuel Miranda. His most recent claim to fame was his starring role alongside Fred Armisen in the HBO series Los Espookys

“We were lucky that some really great actors are voicing the inner spirits of some of those objects because we just needed that,” he told Fallon.

“The role of the cactus went to Lin-Manuel Miranda. I DM’ed him, being like, ‘Can you just be this cactus? This feels like it should be you.’” Wow. That’s all it takes, huh? We love Miranda for just saying ‘yes.’

“’Cause it’s like, can you think of anyone else who would play a little cactus trapped in a little glass container?” Pues, can you?

In the teaser trailer for the comedy special, we get a glimpse of the very cactus that Miranda is set to play. “This next shape that I need to show you,” Torres tells the audience through a microphone at his seat, “This is me coming in late for a meeting and immediately chiming in.”

We can’t wait to hear what the cactus iteration of Lin-Manuel Miranda is going to say.

The Puerto Rican Hamilton creator and star is on vacation in Europe right now, so we haven’t heard his comment on the new break of his latest role. Miranda and Torres have worked together in the past. Torres’ rise to fame began as a writer for Saturday Night Live. Torres wrote the sketch “Diego Calls His Mom” for Miranda’s episode as a host. 

“Lin-Manuel is the lil cactus…. awwww,” tweets one fan. Why is the prickliest side of Lin-Manuel Miranda the cutest side we might ever see? Call it an obsession with succulents or just an obsession with literally anything Miranda chooses to do. Take your pick, no me importa.

Right now, fans are just tickled that Lin-Manuel Miranda appears to have no ego whatsoever.

Miranda has won a Pulitzer Prize, three Tony Awards, three Grammys, an Emmy, and two Olivier Awards. He’s also been been nominated for an Academy Award. He’s a GOAT, and yet, he’s also down to be the tiniest of cacti “trapped in a little glass container.”

“He solved the problem,” Torres said of Miranda’s willingness to play the tiny cactus.

Torres asked Fallon if he could really think of anyone else that could play the role of the cactus, to which Fallon replied, “I mean, don’t even make me thing of that. Of course not, no. Lin-Manuel Miranda!” Torres agreed–“He solved the problem. 

Torres is the Salvadoran precioso you *would* want to spend time with meeting all his favorite shapes.

HBO 

 HBO describes the Los Espookys comedian’s new special as a worthwhile peek into his “fantastical stories and humorous anecdotes.” We can expect to meet “a plexiglass square, an oval that wishes he were a circle, a self-conscious cactus, and a Ferrero Rocher chocolate.”

We’re curious to see how Lin-Manuel Miranda could ever lead us to believe he could be “self-conscious.” This will be the truest test of his acting abilities. Just kidding, just kidding. 

Tune into HBO August 10 at 10:30 p.m. for what’s looking to be an interesting night with Julio Torres.

Expect Julio Torres to be dressed in a glitter suit on stage with a glass conveyer belt shepherding strange objects his way. The teaser trailer gave us a taste of what we were expecting to be Torres dryly musing on his “favorite shapes.” Now, we know that there’s going to be some serious stardom in the shape of a cactus, and many more cameos to look forward to.

Be there or be square!

This ‘Billie Eilish’ Cover Of ‘Señorita’ Is Pretty Amazing To Listen To

As you definitely know by now, the song “Señorita” by Camilla Cabello and Shawn Mendes, has become a bonafide hit. Currently sitting at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, the song is a sexy Latin romp that is definitely in the running for Song of the Summer. And sitting right above Cabello and Mendes on the charts is none other than Billie Eilish with her irresistible goth-pop track “Bad Guy.” Needless to say, both “Señorita” and “Bad Guy” are pretty much inescapable at this point, and with good reason: these songs are bops.

Now, if you’ve ever wondered what “Señorita” would sound like in the hands of Billie Eilish (and who wouldn’t?) you’re in luck! Popular Youtube singer/songwriter and all-around music genius Kurt Hugo Schneider has done just that. Recently, Schneider had the brilliant idea to remake the sexy pop gem “Señorita” in the style of Billie Eilish. The result is a fantastically creepy and deeply catchy cover that might just surpass the original. 

As of now, Schneider’s re-imagining of “Señorita” has become a YouTube sensation, racking up over 5 million views on the video-sharing platform.

In his viral video, Schneider takes us step-by-step through the process of transforming Cabello and Mendes’s light-hearted pop song into a twisted gothic ballad. First, Schneider starts by slowing down “Señorita”‘s backing piano track, telling his audience that “it’s not a Billie Eilish song if it doesn’t have a super sad piano.” He then changes the piano chords to be “darker”, and then adds Eilish’s signature bass to the mix. He rounds out the backing track with a heavy dose of drums.

The video becomes really fascinating when Schneider takes Eilish’s signature and unorthodox sound-mixing tactics and adds some creepy synths and random recordings of every-day objects onto the track. For example, Schneider bites an apple and adds the crunch to the back-track. He then drops a ring onto his desk and uses the resulting sound to add another layer of complexity to the background. 

After Schneider perfects the track, he adds the missing–and most important– a piece of the puzzle to complete the song: vocals.

Fellow Youtuber Madilyn Bailey lends her voice (and best Billie Eilish impression) to the track. Any Billie Eilish fan worth her salt knows that her vocals are so compelling not because of how she sings, but the way her singing is layered and mixed to give a chilling, memorable performance. Bailey rounded out the track with some Eilish-inspired whisper-singing and an interesting mix of alto and soprano singing. When the song was finally finished, the duo completed the project with an accompanying music video.

The final result was haunting, creepy, and possibly an improvement on the original song, which, for all its catchiness, lacked some substance.

After all, the one complaint we have of the otherwise perfect “Señorita” is that the song is, unfortunately, just bubblegum pop. There’s not much soul in the lyrics or the performances (sorry Camilla!).

As for YouTube users, they were more than impressed by the “Señorita” remix.

There’s nothing the public loves more than a mash-up of their favorite artists.

This Youtube user wanted a Billie Eilish Reaction Video ASAP.

We, also, would love to see what Billie would think of Schneider’s creative remix. We wonder if she’s already seen it?

This user couldn’t help but make a joke about the contrast of the original song with the revamped version.

There might not be two songs on the Billboard Charts that are as different as “Señorita” and “Bad Guy”. 

This Latina demanded that the track be available to her for all her re-listening needs.

This is definitely the type of song we’d love to show our friends and subsequently keep on repeat. 

This commenter nailed the reason why Schneider’s version of “Señorita” is arguably more compelling than the original: 

We wonder if Cabello and Mendes have heard this iteration and wish they take their version in a slightly different direction. We wouldn’t blame them if they did!

This Youtuber made a great point about how Schneider’s version added some much-needed mystery to “Señorita”.

It’s definitely true that Kurt Hugo Schneider is an ultra-talented artist. Having an ear that is so fine-tuned to sound production is a hard skill to acquire! We definitely give props where props are due. 

If you’re interested in listening to any of Schneider’s other songs, take a look at the rest of his video library on his YouTube page. Not only does he have other re-imaginings of “Señorita”, but he has other musical reboots. Take a look of his version of Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy” if it were made by Shawn Mendes and Camilla Cabello here. You won’t be disappointed!
