“After five incredible years Zayn Malik has decided to leave One Direction. Niall, Harry, Liam and Louis will continue as a four-piece and look forward to the forthcoming concerts of their world tour and recording their fifth album, due to be released later this year.”

Should I Forgive My Sister Now That She’s Divorced?
help

My sister’s going through a divorce, and it’s pretty ugly. She’s asked to stay with me for a while, which isn’t a logistical issue–I live alone, and I have an extra bedroom. I just don’t want to let her stay. I told her ages ago this guy treated her like dirt, and she not only ignored me entirely, she essentially cut me out of her life since I “couldn’t support her choices.” Lo and behold, the guy continued to be a dick and now that they’re over she wants to act like nothing happened. I’m glad she wants to be back in my life but I’m not sure I’m ready for her to be in my apartment.  More

Broke Beats: Mayalino – ‘Mayalino EP’
Music

Houston’s Mayalino is different.

He’s a rare coke rapper that can flash his drug money and weight on wax and not sound tired. He works well within the milieu of a drug-running industry fatcat all the while taking his Rick Ross ambitions to new corners of style and finesse. The breakout-ready rhymer’s Mayalino EP finally arrived this week after a lengthy delay, but Mayalino makes it worth the wait, lacing all nine tracks with confident, listenable brags, making his tape much more clever than the industry standard.
