The Weeknd

The dawn is coming!


When The Weeknd wiped his Instagram completely, fans knew something was up. Then, at 10:51pm ET on Sunday night, he tweeted out: "f*ck it... IT STARTS TONIGHT"

He currently only has three posts up on Instagram including one video that was also shared to Twitter in which a synth melody and some vocalization can be heard. Fans were sent into a frenzy. Many expected him to drop a song on streaming services at midnight, but alas, all they got was a snippet. His fanbase has only grown stronger since his fourth studio album, After Hours took the world by storm. Fans have been waiting over a year and a half for The Weeknd's fifth studio album. When The Weeknd said "it starts tonight" he was presumably referring to his album rollout.

In other news, The Weeknd will also be gracing the cover of the first ever global issue of GQ Magazine. The cover features the phrase "a celebration of the universal language of music". Perhaps this issue of GQ will provide some more insight on the release of the new album. It wouldn't be surprising if a single were to drop later this week. However, only time will tell.

Get ready Netflix fans! The platform just announced that two of its biggest stars are joining together for their newest movie.

Netflix revealed to TODAY that their latest film project is bringing Joey King, from The Kissing Booth, and Chase Stokes, from Outerbanks, together to play the two lead roles.

The new movie is an adaptation based off of the hit young adult sci-fi series Uglies by Scott Westerfield. Rumors about a film adaptation for the series have been circulating since the first novel's release, so Netflix's announcement comes as quite the pleasant surprise for fans.

Netflix had already teased that King was joining the cast for Uglies, however Stokes' involvement in the production was completely unknown until Tuesday. Along with announcing Stokes as the latest addition to the cast, Brianne Tju, from MTV's Scream, and Keith Powers, from the Freeform drama Famous in Love, will also be joining.

Uglies takes place in a dystopian society where beauty standards are taken to whole new extremes. Instead of getting your driver's permit at 16, teenagers are instead forced to get a complete reconstructive surgery, making them absolutely flawless--but that seems to be the flaw.

King is set to play the main protagonist of the film, Tally Youngblood, who will do literally anything to avoid her surgery. The roles of Stokes, Tju, and Powers still have yet to be released.

Uglies will be directed by Joseph McGinty Nichol, also known as McG, and Krista Vernoff is heading the screenplay adaptation. King will be executive producing the film alongside Jamie King, John Fox, and Scott Westerfield himself.

A premiere date for Uglies has yet to be disclosed.
