Girls' Generation have proven once again that they're still the biggest girl group in the world by hitting 100 million views on YouTube for their "I Got a Boy" music video.
It's another huge achievement for the clip, which already picked up the Video of the Year honour at last year's first ever YouTube Music Awards.
This is the second Girls' Generation music video to cross 100 million views on YouTube so far; the first, "Gee," reached the milestone over a year ago (it now stands at 123 million views). The ninesome's 2011 hit, "The Boys," should also get there soon, as its currently at 96 million views and counting.
To put all of this into perspective, Girls' Generation is currently the only girl group besides The Pussycat Dolls to have more than one music video with over 100 million views. The only other act to achieve the same numbers with just one video is Japan's AKB48 with "Heavy Rotation," while 2NE1 and Little Mix are close behind with 95 million views for "I Am The Best" and "Wings," respectively.
In other words, Girls' Generation is still about ten steps ahead of the competition. It's gonna be a long time before any other group can even come close to GG's current success.
You'll never guess #1 (*wink wink*)
The 4th of July means you'll probably get plenty of time to watch movies about aliens.
Why aliens? Because it's Independence Day, silly: the day our forefathers signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776, freeing the thirteen American colonies from British rule. As a nation of immigrants, one could argue that we're all aliens on this special day. So without further ado, here are the top five Alien movies to watch on Independence Day (*wink wink*).

New Zealand's greatest writer-director-actor has some big new projects coming up, but it's worth looking back at his previous work
A lot of filmmakers keep themselves apart from their work.
You can watch all of their films, learn to recognize their style and vision, and still be left with the mystery of who their creator is. That's not the case with New Zealand filmmaker Taika Waititi.
