Enough songs, films, TV shows, books, podcasts, and Instagram accounts to get you through lockdown
Like a lot of us right now, Selena Gomez is on lockdown, and is using her time to catch up on pop culture and entertainment, cook some food, and have virtual hang outs with her friends. In a new Instagram post, the singer and actor shared a list of what she’s been catching up with on quarantine, so you can watch/listen/read along with her.
“I shared a few lists in my stories of things I’m watching, listening to, and reading to keep me positive and help pass the time,” Gomez wrote. “Hope it helps you.”
There are newer films in her list, like The Invisible Man and Uncut Gems, as well as cult classics (Clueless, Election, and Jennifer’s Body all get a mention. There are great Instagram accounts like @selenagomez.doll, which, as the name suggests, is faithfully recreating Selena’s own Instagram (including posts of her recent cover shoot for YY) using a doll. And there are enough books, podcasts, and TV shows to never be bored again.
Her music list includes collborator Julia Michaels and Roddy Rich’s smash “The Box”, but for those that care for gossip, the most intriguing inclusion will be The Weeknd’s song “Snowchild” – Gomez and The Weeknd dated in 2017, so clearly all’s well there.
Take a look at the list below, and revisit YY’s cover interview with Gomez.

Virtual Reality company buys Napster, aims to create “truly next generation” streaming service
MelodyVR, a virtual reality platform, has purchased streaming giant Napster for $70million (£53m).
Founded in 1999 as a pioneering peer-to-peer file sharing Internet software that emphasized sharing MP3s, the platform served 10.8 billion streams two decades later in 2019, with annual revenues of $113 million.
Now, MelodyVR, who hosted virtual festival Wireless Connect back in June, have acquired Napster, stating that they wish to transform it into “a truly next generation music service.”
Anthony Matchett, the CEO of MelodyVR, said: “MelodyVR’s acquisition of Napster will result in the development of the first ever music entertainment platform which combines immersive visual content and music streaming. For music fans today, live and recorded music are intrinsically linked. We are as keen to see our favourite artists perform live as we are to listen to their albums.
In July this year, London’s Brixton Academy was announced as the venue for a series of live, 360-degree, Virtual Reality gigs presented by Live Nation U.K. and MelodyVR. While no line-ups or dates have been announced yet, ‘Live From O2 Academy Brixton’ promises immersive experiences for fans. Those who “attend” will be able to choose a particular spot in the venue from which to watch the show via the MelodyVR app.
American group Cypress Hill, who were due to kick off a world tour earlier this year, livestreamed a performance from the band’s studio via MelodyVR in June.
Juice Wrld’s Legends Never Die Had The Biggest Week Of Any Album in 2020
When Juice WRLD tragically died at age 21 late last year, he left behind so much — a career that promised to keep climbing higher, a loyal fanbase, and, as prolific artists tend to have, a vault of unreleased material he’d been hard at work on. That’s why it’s no surprise that his third album (and first posthumous one), Legends Never Die, is a smash, including collaborations with Halsey, Trippie Redd, Marshmello, and more.
How much of a smash? YesYou! reports that Legends Never Die had the biggest week for any album in 2020 yet, debuting at No. 1 on the Yes You! 200 albums chart and moving 497,000 units. That makes it the largest streaming week for the year and fourth-largest streaming frame for an album, ever.
Legends Never Die is Juice WRLD’s second No. 1 album following 2019’s Death Race for Love, which spawned the singles “Robbery” and “Hear Me Calling.” It also replaces another posthumous album at the top of the chart: Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon, from late Brooklyn rapper Pop Smoke, which topped the chart last week.
Halsey, whose collab “Life’s a Mess” was released as the project’s third single, remembered her friend fondly on Instagram with a touching tribute upon its release. “Juice was one of the greatest people I have ever known, and one of the most brilliant artists we will ever live to witness,” she wrote. “A true genius who had lyric and melody spilling out of him without any second thought or hesitation. And a beautiful soul who believed in spreading love and creating a community for people to feel less alone.”
