2020's Spiciest Feud Involved Maroon 5, The 1975 And Hot Chelle Rae

TEATIMETEATIMETEATIME

In news that I can’t believe I’m saying, Maroon 5, The 1975 and Hot Chelle Rae are having beef on Twitter and it’s as cringeworthy as it is hilarious. What a day for boybands, hey?

For essential context (that most of us definitely didn’t know), Maroon 5 haven’t always gone by the name “Maroon 5”. Before their massive breakthrough album Songs About Jane, the group released two albums under the band name “Kara’s Flowers” but changed names when they were dropped from their label. Which brings us to now. 

Adam Levine’s making new memories with this Twitter beef.

Over the weekend, Maroon 5-frontman, Adam Levine, took to Twitter to call out The 1975 for visual plagiarism of their earlier work. The tweet has since been deleted, but it said “‘Hey @the1975, you guys big ‘Kara’s Flowers’ fans?”, attaching images of their album cover next to the artwork of the new 1975 album.

It was at this point, that Matt Healy brutally shut down the pop-group, calling out Maroon 5’s 2012 single “Payphone”. Matt said, “I don’t know what the f**k that is but I love that song about being in a phone box or whatever it is”. Yikes. I’d Love It If We Made up.

But then, if you thought the situation couldn’t get any stranger, the forgotten-boyband Hot Chelle Rae entered the picture with their take. The band famous for their one-hit-wonder song “Tonight Tonight“, shared an image of their second album comparing it to the Maroon 5 and 1975 images. 

It was at this point, the internet took the situation into their own hands, sharing infamous logos and works by other artists that remotely resembled the colour scheme.

Oh and also, Twitter brought in other memes too.

Trust Twitter to take a meme and make an even bigger one.

Paris Hilton Wearing Fingerless Gloves In The Kitchen Is My 2020 Mood

That (pan)’s hot.

If you pondered to yourself today, “I wonder what Paris Hilton is up to?”, you have an answer. The O.G. influencer has thrown her singing career aside and is en route to pursue cooking. No, we’re not joking. Ms Hilton has just uploaded a 16-minute cooking vlog showing us how to cook lasagne. You can watch the whole thing here

Now, all jokes aside, it’s hard to know if this video is serious or not. Initially, the video seems serious; it’s shot well, it’s well lit, everything seems to be going well. That is, until she starts cooking. Immediately the 00’s icon complains that she doesn’t know where anything is because its the first time she’s cooked in the kitchen. Also, she’s displeased that she has to shred her own cheese. Whether it’s a joke video or not, I was thoroughly entertained. 

At least it wasn’t as bad as this scene!

Additionally, it must be noted that Paris is back with more iconic fashion moments, this time taking the form of the gloves. While yes, people wear rubber gloves in the kitchen, Paris turns this garment into a statement, as she’s seen to be rocking a pair of black, fingerless gloves. Also, she boasts a tea-towel that says “Allergic To Bullshit”. Honestly, a fashion icon.

She’s so over it and I’m so into it.

Now, the Australian Masterchef judges are currently in the middle of a switch-up. I would like to propose that Paris Hilton become part of the new series in one way shape or another. Because for the entire 16 minutes, I was hooked. 

It’s unclear if this is going to be a series, though she did make sure that she hashtagged “#CookingWithParis”. I surely hope so, because now that I’ve got a taste, I need more.

Everything I Want Netflix To Spend Their $25 Billion Budget On

Just imagine, Veronica Mars, but on Mars.

Netflix has a ridiculous amount of money, we all knew this. But what you might not know, is just how much money this streaming-service actually has. In news that will blow your mind, it was just announced that Netflix will be spending billions more than they did last year. 

A new report from BMO Capital Markets predicts that the streaming-service will invest approximately $25 billion AUD into content this year. That’s a whole lot of Netflix and Chill. 

Given the critical success of films like Marriage Story and The Irishman, and the commercial success of The Good Place and The Crown, it’s no wonder Netflix is spending more money on content. It’s not just what they do best, it’s what they do! 

But until that content comes out, I’m forced to contemplate what Netflix can do with that insane amount of money. Here are some things that I would like:

A Harry Potter Reboot, Led By Ryan Murphy

Imagine these dance moves, but more.

Can you just imagine how fun a Harry Potter reboot would be if it had the campness of Ryan Murphy’s direction? Not to mention, the musical numbers would be off the chain! “You’re A Wizzard Harry” would absolutely go off on the ARIA charts and you know it. 

A High-Budget Round The Twist Revamp, Starring Lady Gaga

*ARTPOP plays in the background*

For most of us, Round The Twist was the show that scared us more than anything else in the world. It was an after-school nightmare wrapped up in a tight little package on ABC Kids. Oh, and there was the epic theme song as well.

I think that it’s time this weird-but-wonderful show got a revamp for the next generation, starring the one-and-only enigma, Lady Gaga. How crazy would that be? I’m getting chills just thinking about it. 

A Friends X Seinfield Crossover Reboot

This, but the Friends cast are also dancing.

There’s a lot of debate about which of these shows is funnier than the other. Hence, the only way to solve this debate is by putting them on the same show, pay them an obscene amount of money and observe who makes you laugh harder. Considering Veep has now wrapped up all filming and the Friends cast keep hanging out together, the timing couldn’t be better. 

That’s So Suite Life Of Hannah Montana 2, directed by Wes Anderson

Oh snap.

Speaking of crossovers, I am definitely expecting a revamp of the most iconic Disney Channel crossover. That’s So Suite Life Of Hannah Montana was the crossover between shows: That’s So Raven, Suite Life of Zach & Cody and Hannah Montana, and it was awesome. Now, imagine this, with the quirky direction from Wes Anderson. You’re welcome.

Veronica Mars, But On Mars

Next shot: Aliens.

Now, Netflix is going to have to buy this show off Stan but, we think that’s well within their budget. Further, now that Kristen Bell has finished up on The Good Place, it couldn’t be a better time to bring back this iconic character in a new setting. C’mon, you know you want to see her snarky sense of humour in space! Just think of her sassy interaction with all the aliens.
