Selena Gomez’s new song is called “Single Soon,” and in a new TikTok video, the singer pokes fun at her single relationship status. She’s seen lip-synching to some audio that says, “Guess who has a boyfriend? Not me b**** y’all stay safe out there.”

BTS member SUGA has started his mandatory military service, but unlike the other members of the group, he’s been ruled unfit for regular combat duty due to his 2020 shoulder surgery, Korean’s Yonhap News Agency reports. Instead, SUGA, 30, will be a “social service agent,” the title given to military members who are performing alternative service. SUGA bid goodbye to fans in a message, saying, “I was able to come this far thanks to you, ARMY … I will do my utmost to fulfill my national duty … Stay healthy and let’s meet in 2025.”
