⏫ Gen Z heroes BTS make history
K-pop superband and ultimate Gen Z favorites BTS have made history as the first non-American act to win Artist of the Year at the American Music Awards. The band went up against American icons like Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift and Drake to win the award. They really are breaking international barriers one record at a time!
⏫ We ❤️ English teachers
English teachers have been getting a lot of love this week. After Adele said she felt most inspired by her English teacher in her younger days at a recent broadcast show, she was surprised with said teacher making an appearance on the show – the popstar needed her make-up redoing after the moment. English teachers are the lifeblood of our schools, no hate it’s the truth!
⏫ Drizzy & Ye bury the hatchet
Drake and Kanye put their long-running feud behind them after they appeared at a comedy show together. Beautiful… now we’ll wait for the hits!
⏬ TikTok’s class action woes
TikTok has been served with a class-action lawsuit for breaching people’s privacy and for collecting data without consent. While the social platform has denied any guilt, they’ve decided to settle with $92m up for grabs for TikTok users in the US.
⏬ Shawn & Camila in heartbreak hotel
This Gen Z glittering couple have broken up. PR love was never meant to last.
⏬ Spotify says bye to Shuffle button
Ok not that dramatic! Spotify has ended the Shuffle button being the default when listening to an album. After artists, including Adele and Lady Gaga, said albums should be enjoyed as a storytelling experience, Spotify took this action. It does make sense.
