No Platinum Chain For You
It’s no secret that record sales have been declining since the advent of file-sharing. In fact, it’s gotten so bad that not one single artist’s album has gone platinum (one million records sold) this year. The top three selling albums of this year (the Frozen soundtrack, Beyoncé’s self-titled album, and Lorde’s debut, Pure Heroin) were all released in 2013. Frozen has managed to sell 3.2 million copies this year thus far, with Beyoncé and Lorde far behind having sold in the neighbourhood of 750,000 copies a piece. If this isn’t enough to prove just how much the music industry has changed, we don’t know what will convince you. [Forbes]

Asked two people kissing on the bench if that was the bench from tfios. Was a great moment, then asked them to take a pic for me
Ansel Elgort visited the beloved Fault in our Stars bench while he was in Amsterdam on Friday. The actor actually interrupted a couple making out on the aforementioned bench and asked them to take a picture of him sitting on it. If you look closely, it looks like one TFioS mega-fan carved out the words “Okay? Okay.” on the bench. The modern relic was stolen earlier this year and was shortly returned to its original spot along the canal. [Buzzfeed]

And The Answer To Why Bono Wears Glasses All The Time?
Bono has revealed the reason why he wears sunglasses all the time is because he suffers from glaucoma. During an interview on The Graham Norton Show, the U2 frontman said he has had the chronic eye condition for 20 years.
“This is a good place to explain to people that I’ve had glaucoma for the last 20 years. I have good treatments and I am going to be fine,” he said.
“You’re not going to get this out of your head now and you will be saying, ‘Ah, poor old blind Bono.'” [The Guardian]
