In case you've been under a rock for the last 14 hours, you've most likely been shaken to your core by Harry Styles' Rolling Stone cover.

Did we mention that he's shirtless, on the cover? Tattoos, nips and all? The headline reads; "Sex, psychedelics, and the secrets of stardom…" so it's bound to be glorious content.

The 25-year-old recently turned down the role of Prince Eric in the live-action portrayal of The Little Mermaid, but rumours are rife that his second album is about to drop in September.

The upcoming cover is set to be released on September 3, and the race to the news stands will be officially on.

Of course, Harry Styles fans went WILD on Twitter, with one even offering to sell her lung for a cover. "Serious DMs only," @achangeofhes wrote.

We've combined the best reactions we've seen on the social media platform so far, and they're borderline hysterical. We're loving it. Long may the furore surrounding the singer/actor last, we say.

In conclusion: WE WEREN'T READY.

Rolling Stone, you unfairly targeted us at our weakest moment with this angelic presence, and we don't know whether to thank you or hate you for having this effect on us.

Good day sir.

Channel 4's Derry Girls is easily one of the best shows on television at the moment, and we've been eagerly awaiting season two for MONTHS.

The hilarious antics of Northern Irish schoolgirl Erin and her best friends, plus an English boy as a hanger-on, had audiences in stitches laughing.

Lisa McGee, creator of the series, has been teasing season two for weeks, but Nicola Coughlan (who plays Clare) has finally given us the Channel 4 air date:

Derry Girls are BACK on Tuesday March 5 at 9:15pm, set your clocks ladies and gents. The trailer for the next season was released, much to the delight of fans, and it seems like the crew are more amusing as ever. 

Saoirse-Monica Jacskon (Erin) and Lisa McGee discussed what fans can expect in a recent interview, and the hype is BUILDING:

"It's definitely bigger and braver. It's bolder and we sort of venture out a bit more. But they're still the same characters, they're clumsily trying to find their way through their teenage years. They're selfish and mental!," said Jackson.

It's already been confirmed that Father Dougal himself, Ardal O'Hanlon, has joined the cast. This is the cherry on top of the Derry ice-cream.

Lisa McGee also said that the new season will be set "against the backdrop of the beginnings of the peace process. The gang are very much still getting in and out trouble. They're still trying to grow up – not very successfully!" 

Jackson said in another interview with the BBC that "in episode one, we meet a group of Protestant boys- which is very interesting for each of the characters."

"In episode two, we've an inspirational teacher, so, it's very special that we're all getting to see it for the very first time in Derry".

WE CAN'T WAIT. Bring on March 5, and the Protestant lads. Season two is going to be chaotic and gas craic altogether judging by these early premiere reactions.

Here's the trailer again, because we know you can't stop viewing it:

Science has upped it's game.

Most researchers seem to be pretty busy with conducting medical studies and making valuable scientific discoveries for society's gain, but this latest survey really takes it to the next level.

Bloom & Wild have worked with London Metropolitan University to undergo an experiment to figure out when the 'love hormone', AKA oxytocin, is released.

The anti-anxiety and stress reducing hormone is pretty special, the chemicals are made when you're in love, and having some KICK-ASS sex. We heart it. 

The study measured how the brain reacts to receiving certain gifts, and it's led to some pretty interesting, and useful, results. We're not hugely surprised at what topped the list, they're all unreal.

Research also suggests that people in the first three stages of love reported higher oxytocin levels that last for roughly six months to a year. At a chemical level, can presents recreate this high of lovestruck heartbeats?

Scientists reported that the subjects of the study showed an average increase of 73pg/ml in the hormone oxytocin after getting chocolates, and 62pg/ml after receiving flowers. Feeling loved comes in all shapes and sizes, it would seem.

The official top five items or experiences included on the list which trumped having sex were; chocolate winning the number one spot, then flowers, food, shopping and booking a holiday.

Receiving chocolate apparently creates a high increase in oxytocin the same rise in oxytocin comes from sex, so a quick nip down to Butlers could solve your stress issues. 

Flowers can spark the same feeling as love, relationships and sexy times, and a study by Havas Worldwide revealed that 57 percent of millennials think that food is better than sex. Damn.

Retail therapy also made the list, according to the experiment. The neurologist David Linden, in his book The Compass Of Pleasure, explains that the experience of shopping triggers dopamine circuitry in the brain's mesolimbic pathway.

In plain-old-English, the mesolimbic pathway is a key part of how we experience entertainment and happiness, so having a sneaky online shop at ASOS is good for you. Thank God we have a valid excuse to do this now…

Booking a holiday is better than having some intimate. alone time with a partner, according to research. 16% of Brits claim to support this, so those Aer Lingus January sales must have had people feelin' pretty damn euphoric.

To carry out their research, Bloom & Wild and London Metropolitan University split 30 volunteers into three groups.

Each were to receive a gift of flowers, chocolate, or water, and took saliva samples before the gift arrived, and then again 10 minutes after delivery, and finally 40 minutes after receiving the gift. 

It just goes to show, chocolate should always be cherished. We're in a loving relationship with Cadbury's Dairy Milk, and there are zero signs of a break-up coming our way.

Despite the recent rape allegations made against Chris Brown, and his extensive (and proven) history of domestic abuse, gun possession and violence, Justin Bieber has thrown his support behind the rapper.

Brown was arrested in Paris this week on suspicion of rape, but was later released. A French woman alleges that the 29-year-old sexually assaulted her, as well as his bodyguard, after meeting in a nightclub.

Needless to say, the Biebs' fans are P*SSED.

The Loyal singer was released without charge around 10pm on Tuesday, and shared a video of himself at dance rehearsals, which garnered a comment from the Sorry singer that has infuriated music fans.

The 24-year-old newly married star wrote; " No one can touch you ur the GOAT," underneath Brown's video.

Brown called his accuser a b*tch on Instagram, posting an aggressive denial of the charges., and his lawyer has claimed that the singer will be suing her for defamation.

French police are still investigating the event, and the accusers name is unknown at this time.

The woman told police that she met Brown on January 15 at a Parisian club, and he invited her and multiple other women to his hotel. Apparently, later in the evening, she found herself alone in a room with Brown and his bodyguard, and she claimed they both raped her.

Bieber is a longtime friend of the singer, frequently collaborating with him on music despite Brown's arrest for domestic violence against singer Rihanna.

We have been dying to see what happens to the Stranger Things crew next!
But unfortunately, the new release date of Stranger Things has officially ruined our day.

It was an emotional final episode as we lost a beloved character, saw rekindled romances, and watched people dance the night away at Snowball.

Spoiler alert!

We were left on the edge of our seats as the camera flipped to show the school still in 'the upside down', and the monster looming over it all.

To our dismay, Netflix has confirmed that the season three will not be released until Summer 2019.

Yes, we have to wait an entire year! Why is it taking so long?

When asked during the Television Critics Association press tour on Sunday, Netflix’s VP of Original Content, Cindy Holland, said they are taking their time with the ‘hand-crafted show’.

‘You know, the [creators] the Duffer Brothers and [director] Shawn Levy have worked really hard and they understand the stakes are high.

‘They want to deliver something bigger and better than what they did last year.[…] it’s gonna be worth the wait.’

A recent trailer for the series modelled an advert for the Starcourt Mall, informing viewers of its opening next summer.

So, while we were warned of the possible release date, many of us fans were hoping for a fall debut.

Expectations continue to rise as the Duffer Brothers take their time creating the follow up season.

So, we will just have to wait a bit longer to see Eleven kick some alien a**!

Pixar fans, rejoice! Woody, Buzz, Mr. Potato Head, and co. will be returning to screens very soon as Toy Story 4 has been given an official release date.

The highly anticipated film is set to hit theatres on June 21, 2019.

It is understood that the movie will focus on the love story between Woody and Bo Beep- how adorable!

 

A post shared by Pixar Animation Studios (@pixar) on

The fourth installment of the much-loved franchise will be released nearly a decade after Toy Story 3 where fans waved goodbye to Andy as he embarked on his new life as a college student.

Many fans believed that we wouldn’t see Woody and co. on the big screen again, especially with the way Toy Story 3 ended, but it seems like the creators came up with a story that just had to be told.

Disney Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter told CNBC that they would never release a film unless the storyline was perfect.

He shared, “At Pixar and at Disney, we only make sequels if we come up with a story that's as good or better than the original.”

He added, “That's our rule. We don't do things just to print money.”

We may have to wait until next summer to see Toy Story 4, but fear not,  Incredibles 2 will be released this summer, 14 years after the original movie was released.

We're all just big kids, really.

After winning parole in July of this year, OJ Simpson is expected to be released from a Nevada prison as soon as Monday, October 2.

The 70-year-old was famously acquitted of the murder of ex-wife, Nicole Brown, but later jailed for armed robbery and assault with a weapon in 2008.

The former NFL star has served just nine years of a 33 year sentence, and while the details of his parole have not yet been finalised, David Roger, the Clark County district attorney who tried Simpson in 2008, said: "Based upon my knowledge of his background and behaviour in prison, I expect he will be a very good candidate for getting parole."

As it stands, the inmate remains at Lovelock Correctional Centre in northern Nevada awaiting transfer to High Desert State Prison , where he would be freed. 

Once released, OJ will be supervised by the state Division of Parole and Probation until September 29, 2022.

According to Brooke Keast, a spokeswoman for the Nevada state department of corrections, video footage of his release is expected to be released to the public.

A federal judge in Wisconsin has ordered the release of Brendan Dassey, who was handed a life sentence in 2007 for his involvement in the murder of Teresa Halback.

After almost a decade of imprisonment for the killing documented in Netflix’s Making a Murderer, Steven Avery’s nephew could be released within 90 days.

According to TMZ, Dassey’s impending release will be subject to a number of conditions.

He must remain in the eastern part of Wisconsin, cannot obtain a passport and cannot possess weapons or controlled substances.

The 27-year-old is also forbidden from contacting Steven Avery and the family of Teresa Halback.

In August, Dassey’s conviction was overturned after a judge found his constitutional rights had been violated when he was interrogated without an adult at the age of 16.

A 20-year-old college student who was found guilty of raping a young woman in a high-profile case is set for release this Friday after serving just half his prison sentence.

According to public records, Brock Turner, who was found guilty of assault with intent to commit rape of an intoxicated woman, sexually penetrating an intoxicated person with a foreign object, and sexually penetrating an unconscious person with a foreign object, will be free by the weekend.

Turner, who will spend his life on the sex offenders' register, has served just a quarter of a year at Santa Clara County jail for the crimes he committed against a young woman on Palo Alto university’s campus in January 2015 despite facing an initial 14 years at sentencing.

In a widely circulated letter written by Turner's victim, she called for stronger sentences in an effort to deter against crimes of this nature.

"The seriousness of rape has to be communicated clearly, we should not create a culture that suggests we learn that rape is wrong through trial and error," she wrote.

"The consequences of sexual assault needs to be severe enough that people feel enough fear to exercise good judgment even if they are drunk, severe enough to be preventative."

Despite the fact prosecutors sought a six-year sentence, Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky, handed down just six months – a decision which has, and continues to cause considerable controversy.
