Miley Cyrus, Ed Sheeran And Fifth Harmony To Perform At 2017 MTV VMAs

Miley Cyrus, Ed Sheeran And Fifth Harmony To Perform At 2017 MTV VMAs featureMTV has finally announced the live performers scheduled for the 2017 Video Music Awards. The VMAs will be hosted by Katy Perry, and she’ll be sharing the stage with plenty of friendly faces. The night’s performances will include Katy’s old pal Miley Cyrus and the man whose ball sack she wants on her, Ed Sheeran. Just don’t expect Ed to mention Taylor Swift at all.

Fifth Harmony will also take a turn on stage, as will Lorde, The Weeknd and Shawn Mendes. The most surprising inclusion might be professional creep Jared Leto’s band, 30 Seconds to Mars. Jared and his mid-2000s nostalgia act are gearing up for their first album in years, so expect something new and probably disgusting.

Check out the announcements from MTV below.

Dating App Helps Stalkers Date Their Favorite Celebrities…Or At Least Their Lookalikes

Now anyone can date Selena GomezThere is now a dating app that will hook regular people up with a celebrity–lookalike. Badoo has launched its new feature that will sort through its 350 million-user database to find the one person that closely resembles a certain famous person.

According to the site, Badoo has 717 ginger-haired white men that are currently using the site if Ed Sheeran is the type of guy you’re looking for. If your taste in men goes more towards someone that is dark, long-haired and Harry Style-esque, then there are 400 men waiting for you. Falling into the more basic category, there are 1, 356 women who resemble Selena Gomez and 1,424 women who look like Lorde.

Although the users have one or two features like their celeb counterparts, they can’t exactly call themselves true doppelgängers.

Lorde Feels Personally Attacked By Her Latest Book Choice

Lorde Feels Personally Attacked By Her Latest Book Choice featureLorde took to Twitter to revel in her latest artistic experience. The singer tweeted about feeling “PERSONALLY ATTACKED” as she started reading “A Lover’s Discourse” by Roland Barthes. The singer debated with herself about how her new album, “Melodrama“, would’ve been affected if she had started reading the experimental 1977 book from the late French philosopher sooner.

“Is it a blessing that i didn’t read this pre-Melodrama, or a curse?” Lorde asked in a tweet. While she claimed initially that it was “hard to say,” she backtracked on that, writing that the album would’ve “burst into flames” if she’d been exposed to the writing sooner.

“A Lover’s Discourse” is famous for drawing on a variety of literature and the author’s own writing to create a fragmented and compelling look at the way great thinkers discuss the concept of love. It’s no surprise that the text is right up Lorde’s alley.

Maybe Lorde’s lyrics–or her comments on Taylor Swift–could appear in a similar text some day.

Check out everything Lorde had to say about Roland’s book below.
