My Reaction to Ansel Elgort's Supernova Music Video

I'm frozen over after viewing that.

A few weeks ago, I was informed that Ansel Elgort had a new song. Not only that, he had a new music video too. I was disconcerted from the start. Nothing about that was good news. Well, except for the fact that I had a new thing to make fun of. And there are so many things to cackle about and fall on the floor over, which I have done many times.

I know I have displayed my distaste for Ansel Elgort on the this exact forum, but once is never enough to rant, IMO. Now, if you haven't heard any of his songs before, I encourage you to take a listen and watch the music video for Thief, it is especially horrendous.

Now that we have gotten that all settled, that's dive in to his new song: Supernova. I'm just going to give you a little run through of my first reactions because what else is there?


Why are lights flickering? And why is he wearing shoes in bed while he is sleeping? And he is not under the covers? There are so many things wrong with the first five seconds.

Oh dear, who wants to see a sweaty, odious human being at the start of music video? I would've turned it off right at first sight of his wet hair glued to his sweat soaked forehead.

It seems like he is on the hunt for someone, like he is going to kill the girl that he has yet to start singing about.

And what are those sounds? It sounds like a classic ringtone that comes on iPhones.

This is actually worse than I was expecting. Rapping. This time Ansel, every time, you have gone too far.

Also, the walking, why is he not bending his legs at all and holding his back, like his terribly making fun of an elderly person? I'm downright flabbergasted. I have no idea what is going on in the current.

I legit gave up the ghost when he says "work on my realness". Might need to work a little harder.

"I've been waking up drenched in sweat." No need to state the obvious, Ansel.

How could someone get this far without toppling over in hysterics? It is seriously impossible.

Is he getting sweatier as the video goes on, or is it the same amount as before? Perplexed.

Also what is this chorus? Where's the depth? The creativity? Listing a couple states does not make you smart, or complex.

I'm extremely confused by this video. Can anyone shed some light? Why does he "walk" through different dark, dungeon scenes and then, all of a sudden, reach a game of hopscotch?? And then proceed to walk and then forcefully on purpose bump into a random car?

THAT WALK AGAIN AND AGAIN, it's too much for me to handle. I've literally perished so many times my stomach hurts.

Then the "fall" and that weird thing he does with his leg when he stands up. He grabs onto his knee and pulls his leg to the side and then lets it reach the ground, all the while his face is shocked and pained at the same time. And it is disturbing to watch, let alone write about..

What is he walking over now? A set of stairs that just go up and then back down again.. in the middle of the road. ("Middle of the day. I'm dead.")

Okay, now I'm actually scared for my life. Do you hear that possessed bird chirping? I can still hear it.

Wow. It's over. I think I'm blinded. Sick. Grossed out. Confused and stunned. What really took place on my screen? Ansel needs to follow Zac Efron's advice and get his head in the game. He needs to realize that the world does not revolve around him and that not everyone or every girl wants to drop at his feet and let him take advantage of her. He is a disgrace to human nature and to the world.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
