5SOS’s ‘Old Me’ Is Here, Alongside A Barrage Of Cute Childhood Pics

Believe it or not, 5 Seconds of Summer have been a band for almost a decade — time truly flies! — and with their latest single, the guys are reflecting on their topsy-turvy journey thus far.

On Friday (February 21), the Aussie band released “Old Me,” a thoughtful reflection about their youth and everything they went through to become the men they are today. That means, of course, making a ton of mistakes, which Luke Hemmings happily owns up to. “Shout out to the old me and everything he showed me,” he sings on the Post Malone-sounding hook. “Had to fuck it up before I really got to know me.”

To really up the nostalgia factor, “Old Me” arrived alongside a lyric video comprised of childhood photos of Hemmings, Michael Clifford, Calum Hood, and Ashton Irwin. During the song’s chorus, the collage of photos transitions into video footage of their early days as a band, when the guys’ jeans were much tighter and their hair was much longer. If you’re a longtime 5SOS fan, this one will definitely hit home.

In a statement about the new song, Hemmings said, “‘Old Me’ carries a youthful spirit and follows the narrative of a young person’s life growing up, for better or for worse. Every decision we made, whether right or wrong, has led us to the men we are proud to be today. We were thrown into the public eye at a young age and gratefully had each other at a confusing time. Sometimes it’s important we look back in order to appreciate the journey we’ve been on together.”

“Old Me” is the latest taste of 5SOS’s upcoming fourth album, Calm, which arrives on March 27 and features the previously released tracks “No Shame” and “Teeth.”

No Time To Die Might Have The Longest Pre-Title Sequence Of Any James Bond Movie

The pre-title sequence has been a staple of the Bond franchise since the second entry, 1963’s From Russia with Love. The pre-title sequences are known for huge action scenes and wild stunts that start the movie off with a bang, while often operating in a standalone fashion that delineates them from the rest of the narrative. These pre-title sequences lead into the equally anticipated opening credits and theme song, and it seems that No Time To Die might have the longest ones to date.

Greyson Chance Reveals The Real ‘Betrayal’ At The Heart Of His New Song

After 39 seconds of scene-setting baritone, Greyson Chance flips the view: He jumps up to a much higher vocal register on the tender pre-chorus of his adventurous new song “Dancing Next to Me.” If you haven’t paid attention to the career of Chance — a prodigy who first hit viral fame in 2010 thanks to a Lady Gaga piano cover and a signal boost from Ellen DeGeneres — this will come as a wonderful surprise.

But if you pressed play on his silky, raw 2019 re-arrival album Portraits, a collection influenced by Frank Ocean and Bon Iver, you know what Chance’s voice can do. On “Dancing Next to Me,” its power is felt through the meticulous arrangements he handled himself, alongside producer and canny pop brain Teddy Geiger. By the time he sings the title of the song a minute in, you’ve already been taken for a ride.

“I don’t know if we necessarily even thought about the change of tone,” Chance told MTV News. “I think we just went with the vocal because it felt really good. I think we developed a mutual trust in that lane and my ability to know how to go in and create.”

Like so many melodies in the digital age, “Dancing Next to Me” finds its origin in a voice note. Chance woke up one day and went straight to the piano, where he got the bones of the song together and recorded it. Later came Geiger; they connected in person and started working right away. “That was our first day, and that was the first time I met her, and that’s what we started with.” (Much like she did for Shawn Mendes on his more exploratory 2018 LP, Geiger is producing Chance’s upcoming album in full.)

“She asked me about my relationship life and what’s going on there,” Chance said about working with Geiger. He opened up, and the lyrics took shape quickly after that. “The song is really a story about a sense of betrayal from somebody, a sense of them being so present with you in this moment and then when the sun is rising, they’re just gone.”

Portraits found Chance using he/him pronouns in love songs, likening a flame’s classic look to Alex Turner‘s, and even dropping an ex’s initials into a song. The 22-year-old wanted to continue that streak of honesty in his songwriting when he began work on his next album. “All of this shit happened to me,” he said. Specifically, this shit: “I was really tired this summer of being people’s experiments.”

The narrative of the song makes this tension clear. Chance meets a guy, and they hit it off. They dance together, they kiss, and more. It’s fireworks. But then, his partner bolts. The song’s bridge makes the complications clear — as the beat drops out, Chance sings, “I was yours for the weekend, come sunrise it’s time / For you to dodge your feelings, call your girl to deny.”

“We were a bit nervous about that line,” Chance admitted, saying he and Geiger fretted over the specificity of it and how it could be heard as “targeting somebody.” Ultimately, he praised Geiger for her tenacity in pushing them to include it in the final version: “That’s the difference between her and a lot of other people. She said, ‘No, fuck it, let’s keep this honest.'”

The “Dancing Next to Me” video spotlights that honesty as well, finding Chance and a would-be lover mingling on and off a dance floor. When he talked to MTV News about the song earlier this month, he’d just finished shooting the video, which ran late because of his own scrupulousness. “You’ll be delighted to know that we were supposed to end around midnight, and of course my ass pushed on until 3:15 or 3:30 in the morning,” he said. “I said, ‘Oh, we need this shot. Oh, let’s keep the light around.’ It was all a mess, but in the best way possible.”

Chance has gotten to flex more of his personality in his recent videos. In November 2019, he released “Boots,” a fuzzed-out bop that found him bare-chested and bloodied in the desert, exhaling smoke and surrounded by a circle of trophies. It’s the kind of energy he’s brought to the entire recording process, an artistic vision inspired by the talismans he’d spy on visits back to his family home in Oklahoma.

“I had a huge obsession this past summer, and going into writing this record, with trophies,” he said. “It can have gold and diamonds and platinum and whatever. It can be laced in the most beautiful things, but what’s interesting is that it all depends on what’s in fine print. You could have the biggest trophy, but at the end of the day, it still says ‘Ninth-place runner up.'”

Chance likened this talk of “beautiful statues” to how he was sometimes viewed both on and off stage by people he was romantically entwined with: “They would come to my show, they would see me, and they would think I was this trophy, that I was always this object.” What makes “Dancing Next to Me” a true moment for him is how it captures what’s real: a narrative with stakes and actual people at the center of it.

Like Chance, those people can be flawed. That’s the whole point of making these songs as honest as possible. “There are nights,” he said, “where the fine print doesn’t look so hot with me.”

Godzilla Vs. Kong Rumored To Have Cool Callback To Their Original Japanese Fight

However, rather than ram the tree down his opponent’s throat like he did in King Kong vs. Godzilla, the giant gorilla will chuck the tree like a spear at the radioactive reptile’s face. It’s possible this reported scene could be cut from the final version of Godzilla vs. Kong since the movie will surely go through more edits between now and November, but based on the visuals alone, I suspect if it’s real, it’ll be kept in.

Cailin Russo’s New EP Takes Us Into The Thick Of The Drama

Full disclosure: Up until now, the only interview MTV News had done with Cailin Russo was from April 3, 2014, after the singer-songwriter had starred in Justin Bieber’s music videos for “All That Matters” and “Confident.” The article‘s headline read, “Justin Bieber’s Extremely Hot Model ‘Friend,’ Cailin Russo, Shares Helpful Tips On Being Hot.”

Clearly, we were all due for an update.

The timing couldn’t be more perfect: Last week, Russo dropped The Drama, an EP comprised of six songs she wrote in the aftermath of a crumbled four-year relationship. The night of its release, she celebrated with a headlining show in L.A., which marked her longest set to date and her first time performing many of the new songs.

“I literally exploded onstage,” she said to MTV News a few days later. “I was like, ‘I can’t hold it in anymore.’ I walked out in a full wedding gown with this six-foot train and then stripped into a leather bra and panties. It was fucking awesome.”

That stunt, along with the EP title itself, should tell you that Russo does in fact have a flair for the dramatic. It’s in her blood. Her dad, Scott Russo, fronts the punk band Unwritten Law, and Russo grew up going to shows with him and sing-screaming her heart out at Warped Tour; it was what she called “a super privileged, one-of-a-kind life.” Initially, she resisted the idea of pursuing music herself, thinking, “That’s dad’s thing.” But in high school, she started tinkering around in the studio with him and they ended up collaborating on a handful of (mostly unreleased) songs that she wrote and he produced. Around the same time, she fronted a high school band called Super Groupie and got into modeling and Bieber video-starring.

Despite being surrounded by music, though, she never actually intended to be her own artist. “I really struggled with imposter syndrome for a solid couple of years,” the 26-year-old admits. “[It took] up until really this year to fully embrace being an artist and feel an identity in saying that.”

Following a few poppy R&B cuts she released in 2017, like “September Rose” and “Pink Sand,” The Drama is the first fully formed taste of what Cailin Russo the artist can do. She made the EP all throughout 2018, after quitting the self-fronted band Russo and reverting to solo music. It began as something else entirely — she initially conceived it as a conceptual project about Hollywood called Nectar City. And then, well, shit happened.

“My relationship started crumbling, and I started writing about it,” she recalls. “I was at this party in L.A. with my other ex-boyfriend — my follow-up ex-boyfriend — and the name The Drama just hit me like a fucking puck in the head. I was like, ‘That is the way to encapsulate four years of my relationship,’ and that’s what The Drama is about.'”

The first song she wrote was the driving, defiant “No Time,” which, ironically enough, is the kiss-off track that closes the EP; on it, Russo declares, “I move on quickly, and you ain’t coming with me.”

“I caught my ex doing some weird, shady shit, and then I wrote this poem at the dog park, and it was ‘No Time,'” she explained. “I was like, ‘Oh, this would be a fun pop song. This is like a Taylor Swift song.’ And then we ended up making it into some hardcore rock song.

“And then, after a series of events post-‘No Time,’ I was still in the same relationship and I was really going nuts,” she continued. “I ended up doing something super out of character and super fucked up. So I wrote a second poem, ‘Declaration.'”

“Declaration” became “part one” of The Drama: the opening track and the admonition that lets listeners know off the bat that Russo is flawed but forthright. “This is a declaration of a fuck up,” Russo sings over fuzzy guitars and a pulsating beat. “And I don’t expect a single teardrop / Whoa, I am ashamed.”

“I carry a lot of guilt. It’s like, ‘I fucked up’ before you hear the rest of the story,” Russo says of the shockingly self-aware song. “Even though now, I feel otherwise, because I don’t think I have to be as hard on myself as I was. But at the time I was very much, ‘This is where I want this story to start. I don’t want you to think that the other guy’s a bad guy,’ you know?” She pauses. “Now, I’m like, ‘fuck you’ to that guy. I’m a fucking angel.”

Throughout the rest of The Drama, Russo continues holding a mirror up to herself with undressed lyrics, grungy aesthetics, and a razor-sharp voice. She playfully considers a love that’s too good to be true on “Sicko,” reminisces on an ex who let her disappear on “Fade,” and reckons with her newfound freedom on “Good Bad Decisions.” The EP’s only loose thread is also one of its high points: the deliciously campy “You Touch Me, I Touch You Back,” a sexy slice of Thriller-esque pop that you might hear in a horror movie (or on Euphoria, which is Russo’s ultimate dream).

One of her key collaborators on The Drama was producer Chris Coady, best known for his work with Beach House and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. The latter band’s influence is all over “You Touch Me,” which Russo admits is “totally not cohesive” to the rest of the project, but which succeeds in showing us yet another facet of the sound that she herself is still cultivating. The EP gives us one chapter of her life and, moving forward, she wants to drop a few one-off singles and then work on a full album that captures the “liberation” she’s currently feeling.

“I think The Drama is such a beautiful foundation for what’s to come,” Russo says. “It’s the ’80s, hard, synth shit, but I don’t think that’s my sound. I think it’s just the beginning.”

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Aren’t Able to Use the Word ‘Royal’ Anymore

Update, 02/21/2020: It’s official, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will no longer be allowed to use the terms royal and Sussex royal as they head into their new, independent lives.

“Given the specific UK government rules surrounding use of the word royal, it has been therefore agreed that their non-profit [organization], when it is announced this Spring, will not be named Sussex Royal Foundation,” the ex-royal couple’s spokesperson said in a statement released by The Sun. “Therefore the trademark applications that were filed as protective measures, acting on advice from and following the same model for The Royal Foundation, have been removed.”

No word yet on what this means for the Sussex Royal Instagram account. Maybe The Tig will make a comeback?

Original story, 02/19/2020: So much has happened since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced they’re stepping down as senior members of the royal family. The couple and baby Archie now live in Vancouver (they’ll be dividing their time between North America and the U.K.). They’re diversifying their work engagements (Prince Harry spoke at a J.P. Morgan event in Miami earlier in February). And the changes keep on coming. Now, it seems, Markle and Prince Harry may not be able to use the word royal as part of their new brand⁠—specifically regarding the charity nonprofit they hope to launch.

This news comes after the Daily Mail‘s report that Queen Elizabeth II has outright “banned” the two from using the word royal in their current and future endeavors. People magazine’s sources, however, aren’t being so drastic. Rather, they’re saying “discussions” are underway about the matter.

“As the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are stepping back as senior members of the royal family and will work toward financial independence, use of the word royal, in this context, needed to be reviewed. Discussions are still ongoing,” the source tells People.

They continue, “As part of the process to transition the Duke and Duchess of Sussex into their new chapter, planning has been well underway around the launch of their new nonprofit organization. Details will be shared in due course.”

That being said, People reports it is “likely” Markle and Prince Harry will not use the word royal going forward. For now, though, their Instagram handle is still @SussexRoyal. We’ll keep you posted on when (and if) that changes.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced in early January 2020 they were stepping back from the royal family. “After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution,” they wrote on Instagram. “We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment.”

John Krasinski Is Down for The Office Reunion

Good news for fans of The Office currently mourning the inevitable removal of their favorite show from Netflix’s lineup. A revival is in the works at NBC and John Krasinsky—a.k.a Jim Halpert—is totally in.

“The Office was absolutely everything to me. I mean it is my beginning and my end. I’m pretty sure at the end of my career I’ll still be known for Jim,” Krasinsky said in a new interview with Esquire. “That was my first experience with Hollywood. It was the first creative family I’ve ever had. In many ways, they will always be the most important people in that most important experience in my career. So yeah, if they did a reunion, I would absolutely love to do it.”

This echoes his previous statement to Entertainment Weekly, though with a tad more enthusiasm. “I think we should reboot it,” he said in 2018. “I think it’s hard obviously with everybody’s schedule to do an Office reboot, but I would so be down.”

He even had some ideas. “Maybe we could do like a Christmas special or something,” he told EW. “The British show did a Christmas special, which is like, ‘Where are they now?’ for one episode because I don’t know how we’ll get everybody together for 22 episodes.”

However, Krasinski’s interest in revisiting the NBC series has not always been so clear to fans. The actor/director, now known for his marriage to Emily Blunt and highly praised projects like The Quiet Place, was once somewhat distancing himself from his time as dopey heartthrob Jim. He once notably fired back at a relatively sweet, innocuous quote from co-star Jenna Fischer. “There’s a real part of me that is Pam and a real part of him that is Jim, and those parts of us were genuinely in love with one another,” the actress said on an episode of Watch What Happens Live back in 2016 (three years after the series finale).

But Krasinski didn’t agree. “I think that was wildly misquoted or taken out of context,” Krasinski told The Daily Beast. “I’m sure she was trying to say something nice about how genuine the acting relationship was, of bringing a relationship that became that popular onscreen—and I think we both feel it’s such an honor to be a part of that relationship. As far as how she was quoted about saying we were ‘genuinely in love,’ I think that was taken wildly out of context and I feel bad for her.” Ouch.

Now, though, Krasinski is more open about addressing his original fears post-The Office. “The Office was so big at the time, but I think a lot of people were afraid to cast certain cast members in anything else because they were just known as that one thing, which I completely understood,” he told Esquire. “It wasn’t an aggressive anger towards it. It was just a reality that I think I wasn’t, if I’m honest, genuinely prepared for.”

Well, well, well, how the turntables…
