Blackpink’s Lisa started a hilarious viral meme
Yes we know it’s only May but we’re already calling it – this meme may just be one of the best of the year. It all started (accidentally) thanks to Blackpink’s Lisa wearing thigh-high boots during a recent dance performance. The look went viral on Twitter after it was cropped and uploaded next to an image of Star Trek‘s Spock to make it line up as his legs. Aren’t quite following? Check out the examples below 😂

The Killers break down the ‘Mr Brightside’ video
No one is currently coming out of their cage right now (we hope everybody is doing just fine) due to social distancing but The Killers Brandon Flowers and Ronnie Vannucci Jr got together to take part in Vevo’s new Watch This series – getting artists to look back at their career defining music videos. The bandmates revisited their masterpiece debut single ‘Mr Brightside’ from 2004’s Hot Fuss, sharing wild stories about the song’s creation and insightful commentary about the iconic video that started it all.
HAIM are holding a dance class for the routine to new track ‘I Know Alone’
On Thursday HAIM dropped a timely new track, ‘I Know Alone,’ off their upcoming album Women in Music Pt. III (now set for release on 26 June). While the song was originally written about the feeling of loneliness coming home from tour, “been a couple days since I’ve been out,” the sentiment now takes on a whole new meaning. The band shared via Instagram, “’I Know Alone’ was always going to be the next song we released, but it feels eerily appropriate given what’s going on in the world right now. We hope this song keeps you company.”
The accompanying music video once again shows off their impeccable choreography and with fans already attempting to recreate the routine online, the sisters have hosted a virtual dance class via Zoom to teach everyone the moves. Perfect content for your TikTok… 💃

I’m really f*cking excited for it. Trying to put it out as soon as I f*cking can, I’m really proud of the music that we’re making.” *Internally screams*
