Our prayers have been answered: Chvrches is coming to Manila
Chvrches is arguably the hottest thing to come out of Scotland in a long time. The synthpop trio was formed only in 2011, and it’s been only a year since “The Bones of What You Believe,” its first major album, was released.

Team Peeta or Team Gale?
Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Katniss Everdeen in “The Hunger Games,” revealed to Seventeen magazine just how hard it is to choose between the two hunks of the movie: Gale (Liam Hemsworth) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson). “I think I was [Team] Gale until he started getting a little too trigger-happy. Or maybe first Peeta and then Gale or Gale, then Peeta? I went back and forth. I flip-flopped,” she said.
