Girls' Generation fans have probably been wondering what the Korean super group's plans are for 2015 now that member Jessica Jung has left to focus on her solo career as a fashion designer.

Putting to rest any fears of a group disbandment, member Yuri has confirmed that the girls will return some time this year with a new album and a more mature image, but unfortunately failed to provide a specific date for the group's big comeback.

“Girls’ Generation is slowly preparing an album," she revealed at a press conference. "We are working hard in order to show an even more mature image within the year. Please look forward to it.”

The girls are also preparing a new Japanese single, although again, there's still no release date for it.

While Girls' Generation have been working hard on new music and various other activities, ex-member Jessica has been keeping busy as a celebrity socialite in China, attending endless red carpet events and promoting her fashion brand wherever possible.

Hopefully both Jessica and SNSD will have a lot of good stuff to bring us this year!

One Texas couple became a meme after they went 18 minutes without shredded cheese on their fajitas. What could be worse?

Karens. Even if you don't know them by name, you know who they are.

Karens have been asking to speak to managers all over American suburbia ever since Kate Gosselin debuted her infamous reverse-mullet on Jon and Kate Plus 8 in 2007. "Karens"—the collective nickname for middle-aged entitled white women who love nothing more than being pains in your ass—have been walking among us for quite some time, but as shelter-in-place orders and mask mandates have taken over the world, the presence of Karens has become even more apparent.

Last weekend, a Karen went viral in a since-deleted Tweet for a reason only Karens would empathize with. Jason Vicknair, a 40-year-old man from Allen, Texas, was just trying to enjoy his first date night out in three months with his wife at a Tex-Mex restaurant called Mi Cocina. Things took a turn for the worse.

Twitter just released their official list of the most-active music fan bases this week, and you might be surprised by who made the cut.

While Justin Bieber's Beliebers predictably made No. 1, followed by One Direction's Directioners in second place, the Sones, who are the fans of K-pop princesses Girls' Generation, came in at No. 5.

Girls' Generation was the only girl group on the list, meaning that Little Mix's Mixers and Fifth Harmony's Harmonizers really need to step their stanning up!

This is yet another big victory for Girls' Generation, who are already the most-viewed girl group on YouTube.

Besides Girls' Generation, K-pop boy band BIGBANG came in at No. 18 thanks to the efforts of their VIPs.
