Unfortunately, this changed Friday afternoon. In typical Cupcakke fashion, she posted a series of sexually explicit tweets about BTS member Jungkook. While this … <a href="https://culture.affinitymagazine.us/cupcakke-leaves-twitter-after-receiving-death-threats-from-bts-stans/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read

    For celebrities, it’s got to be hard to be in a relationship. They have very little time to spend with their significant other, and privacy is almost impossible. Their love lives are constantly exploited by news corporations and the paparazzi—and fans are able to judge their every move. With the use of social media, fans … <a href="https://culture.affinitymagazine.us/stop-trying-to-control-your-idols-love-life-its-none-of-your-business/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read

    *Warning: some spoilers ahead* Earlier this week, a new medical drama called The Good Doctor premiered on ABC.

    Since One Direction went their separate ways nearly two years ago, they’ve had time to stray away from the pop sound they had as a group and experiment with different sounds. Zayn, who was ahead of the curve in regards to going solo, released R&B album Mind of Mine, with lead single Pillowtalk, in early … <a href="https://culture.affinitymagazine.us/a-message-to-one-direction-fans-why-you-shouldnt-feel-bad-about-not-liking-all-the-boys-solo-music/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read

Whether it’s by trying to decode the cryptic lyrics of “Bohemian Rhapsody”, or stomping and clapping to the beat of “We Will Rock You”, their songs have left a legacy in the rock industry. The backbone behind it all? Freddie Mercury.

    I’ve never been a huge fan of YouTube. The reason was that I had a hard time finding someone YouTube-famous who was relatable, but still naturally funny and charming. This changed when, one day, I found not one, but two YouTubers to look up to. Niki and Sammy Albon, known by NikiNSammy on YouTube, are British … <a href="https://culture.affinitymagazine.us/5-reasons-you-should-give-nikinsammy-a-chance/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read

    By now, most people know about Taylor Swift’s ongoing legal battle. If not, I’ll briefly sum it for you: in 2013, radio DJ David Mueller met Swift backstage at one of her concerts. When getting their picture taken, Mueller reached under Swift’s dress and allegedly grabbed her butt. He was fired for it, and, two … <a href="https://culture.affinitymagazine.us/sorry-tmz-taylor-swifts-sexual-assault-is-not-a-joke/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read

    Growing up on the autism spectrum, it was difficult to find representation of myself and others like me in media.
