2 Enrique Gil revealed the story behind his grand gesture for Liza Soberano’s 19th birthday—buying her a lustworthy Chanel Boy Bag.
"Mahilig kasi siya kila Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner. Nakita ko sa cellphone niya 'yung picture na tinitingnan niya. When we went to New York, nakita niya 'yung Chanel store tapos tinitingnan niya 'yung bag pero hindi niya [mabili] kasi maxed out na 'yung card niya. Sabi niya huwag na lang, next time na lang."
Being the prankster that he is, Enrique led Liza to believe he purchased a bag from a brand she absolutely hated. LOL!
"Niloko ko lang. Sinabi ko 'yung isang brand ng bag na ayaw na ayaw niya. Sabi ko, 'Ayaw mo ba 'yon? Iyon pa naman ang binili ko.' Pina-deliver ko from Italy, nasa malaking box pa. Umiyak siya. Akala ko tumatawa, umiiyak na pala.” (ABS-CBN)
3 US President Barack Obama just bid farewell to the nation as he addressed them in a heartfelt speech. He said: "This is where I learned that change only happens when ordinary people get involved, get engaged, and come together to demand it.
After eight years as your President, I still believe that. And it's not just my belief. It's the beating heart of our American idea—our bold experiment in self-government."
Obama served two terms as POTUS from 2008-2016. Thank you for eight years, Obama. <3 (CNN)

5 After Ed Sheeran resurfaced on social media to release his two new singles AND announce his upcoming album, Divide, the artist revealed that his collab with Justin Bieber—the smash hit "Love Yourself"—was initially supposed to be part of his album. "That was a song I had written for Divide. It just wouldn’t have made it.
"Justin took it and did his thing on it, and released it as a single and made it what it is…I wouldn’t say it was just all me. It just shows you that you shouldn’t always write stuff off." (Just Jared)
