Zara Larsson has become a Twitter legend after fans pieced together that she is living a fantasy several users on the site indulge in. Everybody wants to be her after sleuths figured out that she’s dating a hottie who she tweeted about in 2015.
Fans realized that the singer’s current boyfriend, IMG model Brian Whittaker, is the same guy she posted a very thirsty tweet about over a year ago. Zara and Brian didn’t reveal if the tweet was what actually brought them together, but Zara did acknowledge she remembers her tweet full of thirsty questions.
“Who are you,” Zara wrote in a line of unbroken questions without any punctuation. “Why are you so fine how do you like your eggs cooked in the morning?” she asked.
Zara noticed people catching on to the story, as well. In a new Instagram post in which she’s smooching Brian, she revealed how he likes his eggs. In another tweet, she said that she’s “in love” so her next album “will probably be cheesy.” That may not be how Brian likes his eggs, but maybe it’s how he likes love songs written about him.
Check out Zara’s original tweet and recent pics from the happy couple below.

Ariana Grande likes to think of herself as a powerful businesswoman. Whether she’s shading Mariah Carey in a video game or getting ready for her upcoming world tour, she’s making moves and cutting deals. Now, a project from Ariana’s past has surfaced online. A version “This One’s For You,” the official song of the 2016 UEFA European Championship for soccer, has leaked featuring a demo with Ariana’s vocals on it. And the timing is a little suspicious.
The leak comes just as David Guetta, the track’s producer, is set to premiere a documentary about the song’s process. David is a French DJ who’s worked with Ariana in the past. He teased “This One’s For You: The Film” on Instagram as the leaked track started to make the rounds on social media.
In the song’s final version, Ariana’s demo vocals are replaced by Swedish singer Zara Larsson. Ariana didn’t walk away from her deal with the 2016 Euro empty-handed, though. She ended up headlining the tournament’s opening night concert.
Listen to Ariana’s demo of “This One’s For You” below.

Demi Lovato is getting ready for her 2017 hiatus, but it looks like there’s plenty of talent waiting in the wings. In some new Snapchats, Swedish singer Zara Larsson showed off just what she can do with one of Demi’s songs. In a couple of videos that have her looking like she’s fresh out of the shower, Zara takes a stab at Demi’s song “Stone Cold.”

DNCE and Shawn Mendes will both be performing at the 2016 MTV European Music Awards. Lukas Graham and Zara Larsson are also slated to take the stage. Each of these four performing acts have been nominated for at least one award during the ceremony. DNCE will duke it out with Lukas Graham and Zara for the “Best New” category. Shawn and Lukas Graham are both nominated for four awards throughout the night. Bruno Mars, who has won a few EMAs in his day but isn’t nominated this year, will also be performing.
The official EMAs Twitter account really hopes for DNCE to bring “Cake by the Ocean” to the stage, but it sounds like the band is planning on something that involves some “Body Moves.”
The 2016 MTV EMAs will broadcast worldwide from the Ahoy in Rotterdam, Netherlands on Sunday, November 6 at 9pm CET.
Check out the announcements below.
