Songs You Didn't Know Were Written By Others
Start writing a post

The people who wrote these songs are basically lyrical genius. They have their own careers and are behind some of the biggest songs of other artists careers as well.

1. "Diamonds" by Rihanna

Actually written by Sia...before she came out singing her own music.

2. "Halo" by Beyonce

The singer of OneRepublic, Ryan Tedder, actually wrote this. Kinda crazy because I can't see OneRepublic singing this song.

3. "Party in the U.S.A." by Miley Cyrus

Which was actually written by Jessie J. We still want to party in the USA though.

4. "Forget You" by Cee Lo Green

Bruno Mars thought this one up. Honestly, I could see Bruno Mars performing this song really well too.

5. "Whataya Want from Me" by Adam Lambert

Pink came up with this one and it absolutely goes with her vibe. The fact that Adam can do this justice is amazing.

6. "Breakaway" by Kelly Clarkson

Avril Lavigne wrote this. I remember singing along to this when I heard it on the radio when I was younger. This lowkey put her on the map after American Idol.

7. "Baby" by Justin Bieber

Christina Milian gave Bieber this one. This will never not be my middle school anthem, no matter who wrote it.

8. "Monster" by Rihanna

Bebe Rexha wasn't even a known artist at this point but she was as a writer. She helped out Rihanna and Eminem with the song. She's definitely good enough to write her own songs.

9. "Little Things" by One Direction

Ed Sheeran. A god. He can not only write songs for One Direction, Justin Bieber, and Major Lazer, but also be a hugely successful singer/songwriter on his own.

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.

If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.
