Welcome back to The Weekly Buzz, our recurring column that keeps you in the know about everything going on in the world of pop culture that you can’t afford to miss! From music to TV and everything in between. We’re buzzin’ about it.
Let’s get down to business! Mulan‘s live-action trailer dropped this week, and we’re ready for it in ways we didn’t think we could be. And, as a follow up to Harry Styles‘ Eroda Saga last week, his single ‘Adore You‘ dropped this week and gave us our fill of Harry’s normal charming personality and a lot of resting fish face.
Billie Eilish has launched her own fashion line through Urban Outfitters and so now we know exactly what outfits to pack when we head out to Eroda. So, we can look like one of our faves while obsessing over another basically.
Our queens in Little Mix have put out an Advent Calendar to help us countdown to Christmas Day in style. Each new day has been the kind of surprise that makes us wish Christmas lasted all year tbh, but alas, no tickets to Eroda or any cool clothes from Billie’s fashion line behind any of the doors yet.
Yungblud is still on the rise (duh), and has added two London dates to an already jam-packed tour. Katy Perry has dropped a new Christmas single, Niall has ‘Put A Little Love On Us,’ and Selena Gomez may just be ready to conquer the big screen!
Halsey has revealed her track list to Manic, The Weeknd has returned from a long hiatus that left us ‘Heartless’, and Camila Cabello has dropped Romance just in time for us to realize that it is exactly what we needed in our lives. WHEW! It’s been one hell of a week!
Tweet Of The Week
If you’re anything like us, this tweet is the most relatable thing on Twitter this week:
A whole mood.
Our precious bbys TXT dropped a new music video this week for ‘Angel or Devil,’ and it got us worried about which one we were 😈, so we made a quiz.
Monsta X is dropping a new album in February, but the news is that they will be the first K-Pop band to ever release a full album in English only. We love their Korean albums, but we know we’ll love this, too!
Joohoney of Monsta X may not participate in The Jingle Ball Tour after feeling dizzy and poor of health while waiting for his flight. After resting, he feels better but Starship thinks he may need a bit more time to recover.
Suzy, formerly of Miss A, has donated 15 MILLION won to the Life Sharing Campaign, to help support low income families. Stray Kids have announced a U.S. tour which will begin in January, and everybody’s babies, BTS, has had another Daesang sweep, winning all four Daesangs at 2019 MAMA.
You Oughta Know…
There’s some hot music news fresh outta the oven that we’re so stoked about here at The Honey POP that we just had to share with you in The Weekly Buzz…

Hot in the Hive
We at The Honey POP are fans just like you, so we thought we’d share the buzz about Team THP’s faves in The Weekly Buzz!
“Romance by Camila Cabello” – Carly, Writer
“I’m always into David Dobrik on YouTube his videos are short and sweet and straight to the point so when I need a break from studying I watch a video to clear my head and go back to it afterward. Also a bunch of stuff in the after movie series is leaking so the entire fandom is losing their mind.” – Gabbi, Writer
“I’ve been binging David Dobrik’s vlogs. But also there’s a YouTuber called Moriah Elizabeth who does a lot of arts and crafts stuff.” – Lish, Writer
“Luke Hemmings just gave us Petunia content, so I’m thriving.”
– Jodie, Editor, on the frontman of 5 Seconds of Summer’s dog
