Opinion: Jonas Punched Me in the Gut and Not in a Good Way

By Anna Jirgal Have you ever watched the Super Bowl? You know, your family and all your friends are gorging themselves on burgers, dip, and whatever concoction Aunt Sally made that looks super suspicious but tastes amazing. Besides, let’s be honest, half of you are only there for the food anyway. The food and one other thing: commercials.

Opinion: The Chainsmokers

By Madyson McGill The Chainsmokers have come a long way since their breakout hit “Selfie,” back in 2014.  Right now, they couldn’t get closer to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart as their hit song “Closer,” featuring alternative-pop princess Halsey, is already there and has been for six weeks. Their other hit song “Don’t Let Me Down” is also up there … Continue reading Opinion: The Chainsmokers
