Shawn Mendes Performs “Youth” With Marjory Stoneman Douglas Choir

The Billboard Music Awards were Sunday night, and the evening was riddled with powerful performances. Ariana Grande's evocative opening act set the tone for the evening.

But Shawn Mendes put on "Youth" as a tribute to the victims and survivors of tragic school shootings.

As you can see in the video that we have included, he had help — from fellow singer Khalid, and from surviving students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Shawn Mendes is 19 years old, so he doesn't just have to relate to teenagers — he is one.

Though he also performed "In My Blood," which was much more upbeat and designed to please the crowd, when he and Khalid got up and sang "Youth," it was a clear tribute to both survivors and victims of school shootings.

And many read it as an indictment of the numerous politicians and special interests who are fighting gun reform efforts that could save countless innocent lives.

But in case it was not perfectly clear, Mendes had survivors of the Parkland shooting up on stage with him.

They weren't there as props — they were singing.

These were Marjory Stoneman Douglas choir students.

Though surely this particular performance had been planned for a while, the timing was tragically appropriate.

Just last week, the mass shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas claimed even more innocent lives.

Once again, the murderer was a disaffected young male with a lot of anger … and with access to an AK-47.

Some are tentatively hopeful that November's midterm elections will see new politicians in office who are willing to actually take action, as so many countries have done, to prevent these tragedies.

Mendes' music isn't going to make that happen, but it can be a rallying cry for the voters who can make that dream a reality.

Shawn Mendes has plenty of stans who were in attendance in the audience.

Kpop fans were delighted to spot Jungkook bobbing his head and dancing along with "In My Blood."

There was actually a hilarious moment in the audience during that song.

Notably, Taylor Swift and Camila Cabello were standing and dancing in the crowd during "in My Blood."

Seated just a couple of rows behind them, Darren Criss used his phone to record himself entertained and pretending to be frustrated by Taylor and Camila obstructing his view.

The stars are "just like us" in many ways — they can be moved by each other's music.

But they can also get annoyed with each other over it.

As you'll see in the video, Hailey Baldwin was also in the audience.

Last November, rumors began to swirl that Shawn Mendes and Hailey Baldwin were dating.

Reports claimed that they were intensely cozy, and they've gone out and about together. They even attended the MET Gala together.

However, Hailey has claimed that the two are merely very good friends.

That claim of friendship has done nothing to help Shawn dodge the persistent gay rumors that have followed him for years.

Believing that someone is gay or bi and closeted is fine, whether you're correct or not. Calling them out as such on social media is unkind.

Sexuality is about as personal as it gets.

It was so good of Shawn Mendes to use his platform and the Billboard Music Awards for such a good message.

It was also good of Khalid, who is a newer name in the music world and whose name seems to be forgotten by many talking about this performance, to lend his voice and talents to the song.

We all hope to see a better tomorrow in which children are safe from death and horror.

Joanna Krupa: Engaged to Douglas Nunes!

Great news for Joanna Krupa fans: she’s engaged!

Technically, Joanna did not say the words … but she instead showed off her new ring (in the very conspicuous photo that you’ll see below) and tagged her new fiance in the photo.

She let fans but two and two together.

The photo that you’re about to see shows Joanna Krupa’s hand and Douglas Nunes’ hand, alongside some wonderful dogs.

Joanna tagged Douglas. She also tagged Winston, the large white dog, who has his own Instagram account.

On the ring finger of her left hand, fans and followers can clearly see what looks like a large, beautiful engagement band.

Her caption, however, belies the signficance of the photo. She writes:

“Just another weekend in the Krupa-Nunes household.”

But look:at the anything-but-ordinary picture.

We had to take a moment to admire the beautiful, precious, sleepy dogs for a moment before we noticed the ring. Take your time.

Joanna hasn’t exactly been outspoken about her relationship with fiance Douglas Nunes.

(Note: this is Douglas Nunes, not to be confused with the politician, Devin Nunes, of “Nunes Memo” fame)

In fact, she’s even playing coy in this photo announcement.

The whole relationship has been pretty hush-hush, and it seems like Douglas is a fairly private person.

Though a factor in the couple’s apparent shyness might be how recently Joanna ended her last relationship.

Here we see Joanna with her last husband, Romain Zago.

The two of them finalized their divorce just 8 months ago.

It was, however, an amicable split.

So amicable, in fact, that Romain Zago testified that her vagina smells great during the most absurd lawsuit in recent memory.

Plenty of women can’t get their ex to agree to a visitation schedule during a divorce, and Joanna had Romain sit at the witness stand and sing the praises of her genital odor.

That whole story was bonkers and amazing.

But, as you may recall, Joanna Krupa won her lawsuit against Brandi Glanville, who was forced to apologize for ever questioning the olfactory qualities of Joanna’s nether bits.

We can’t help but imagine the hours of law school and the courtroom experiences that led everyone involved to one day take a case involving a vagina odor lawsuit.

In general, though, Joanna leads an amazing life as a beautiful celebrity.

She endorses products on Instagram, she reminds the world that she is shockingly gorgeous, and she also promotes animal rights causes and shares stories related to that with fans.

Joanna’s fans are of course very happy for her and filled her comments with congratulations.

There were, unfortunately, some snide comments about how recently she divorced Romain.

But … remember, just because the divorce was finalized 8 months ago doesn’t mean that her relationship with Douglas is some sort of rebound.

Divorces, even the nice ones, take time. She and Douglas have had plenty of time to get to know one another.

We wish the two of them the best!
