What you might have missed from the wide, wide world of pop culture news this week

Yuna releases her latest single 'Forevermore' with a stunning video shot entirely in Malaysia

The homegrown singer-songwriter celebrates her roots in the best way she knows—through song—and we are living for it. The first track to drop from her upcoming album, 'Forevermore' takes inspiration from the melody of 'syair' (a form of classical Malay poetry) and pays tribute to our beautiful country. The accompanying MV is stunning. Shot by Yuna's husband, Adam Sinclair, it showcases various locations across Kuala Lumpur and Perlis (her hometown) in a fantastical light. She even busts out some slick choreography by Karma Raines.

"'Forevermore' is a song that I wrote about growing up in a small town and coming from a small country and how that environment made me strive to be the best that I can be. I remember when I was younger, I couldn't wait to leave and see the world. Now that I'm in the position I'm in, I'm able to appreciate where I come from more now than ever," said Yuna.

The first thoughts on the final season of Game of Thrones are in

Winter is inching closer than ever. Before the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones hits HBO on 14 April, a select audience got to watch the first episode at the world premiere in New York City—graced by the stars in their best garbs and faces forward, of course. Some of those lucky viewers and the cast have been quick to share their thoughts and excitement on social media, and by the sounds of it, we won't be disappointed come show premiere day. Don't worry, no spoilers ahead.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have an official Instagram now... but not without some drama

ICYMI, you can now keep up with The Duke and Duchess of Sussex on Instagram at @sussexroyal, where they have been actively sharing some exclusive images and personal moments of their royal visits and appearances.

 

 

But the couple's Instagram debut was not without some drama. Evidently, the handle originally belonged to a West Sussex local named Kevin Keiley, who lamented that the handle change occurred without his knowledge or consent. He still owns @sussexroyal on Twitter, but has told BBC that he has no plans to return to Instagram until he "has a chat with them personally". We personally won't bank on that. 

 

Queer Eye's Fab Five (minus Karamo) meets Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Capitol Hill

It was a meeting of queens, you guys. After Queer Eye's Bobby Berk told U.S. Democratic Party Rep. Alexanderia Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) via Twitter they were in town for the week, she soon extended an invitation for them to hit up her office.

 

 

They also met Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi and Congressional Progressive Caucus leader Pramila Jayapal. The Fab Five wouldn't be the Fab Five if they were not spreading the message of love and opportunity, so of course they took the opportunity to chat with the politicians about the Equality Act. As Jonathan Van Ness shared in an earlier Instagram post: "There is currently no legal protection at the federal level for LGBTQ people in the United States. Learn about & Pass the #equalityact".
