After seven weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, Ariana Grande's "Thank U, Next," a follow-up to her hit album Sweetener, has finally fallen to number two while Halsey's "Without Me" has risen to the #1 spot.

Grande's reaction to Halsey usurping her throne was anything but competitive, however.


Though Halsey had a #1 billboard hit alongside The Chainsmokers for her performance in "Closer," this is the first time she's topped the charts as a solo act.

Halsey posted about the experience on Instagram, saying:

"#1 on billboard. wow. very overwhelmed and confused and so very very very VERY happy. This song came from a very lonely place, and brought me to one of the most loved and supported moments of my lifetime."



Halsey continued:

"This achievement is completely beyond my means of comprehending right now so I'll get back to you guys when I find more eloquent and compelling things to say. Right now my brain is a washing machine of emotion. On a very high cycle. I love you very much."

Instead of throwing shade, Grande took to social media to show her support for Halsey.

On her Instagram, she wrote:

"F*ck it up @iamhalsey. To girls on top all 2019."

Halsey responded to Arianna's message:

"Luv u bb. Dynamic women who are headstrong + compassionate all 2019."

Twitter loved the supportive relationship between the two pop stars!






You're not just imagining the girl power dominating the Billboard music charts.

When Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You" rose to number three during Christmas (as it does annually), it marked the first time since 2014 that the three most popular songs were performed by female artists.



Both Ariana and Halsey's songs happen to be about famous break-ups as well.

Grande's song, available here, names names as she speaks about how grateful she is for the good men she's dated...

Ariana Grande - thank u, next youtu.be

...but Halsey takes a different tack. "Without Me" is available here.

In October 2018, during an interview with Zach Sang, Halsey spoke of how the song was meant to address her toxic breakup with rapper G-Eazy:

"I'll tell you what. It happened when I looked at my relationships all around me."
"All of them – cause this song is not just about one — and it made me sit down and go 'I feel like I've given so much to relationships with people in my life and I'm getting nothing back'… and so I cut a lot of people out of my life."
"Some temporarily, obviously, because G and I are back together. And some permanently."

Since recording that interview, Halsey and G-Eazy have broken up once again.


In our modern day and age, Ariana and Halsey know there's no need to be competitive with each other when both ultra-talented women created great songs that the whole world's into.

There's plenty of love to go around!

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.
