A 17-year-old boy is dead after a Snapchat stunt went horribly wrong at a Singapore mall last week.
Skateboarder Jonathan Chow often filmed little stunts for social media, so when he planned to hop the railing onto the outer ledge of an upper floor walkway at the Orchard Central mall, he and his friend Ruth thought this was no different.

Unfortunately, what looked like more of a concrete ledge was in fact decorative plasterboard, unintended to support any weight.
When Jonathan landed, the ledge immediately gave way, and the teen fell four stories to his death.
Ruth, who was filming the stunt, told local outlet Today Online:

We guess 2016 won't mark the end of homophobia after all…
Adam Lambert may be one of the most talented vocalists on the planet, but it seems like that's not enough to score him a headlining gig in every country around the world.
After it was announced over the weekend that the American Idol alum had been selected to sing at Singapore's Celebrate 2016 concert on New Year's Eve, thousands of people throughout the country singed a petition to keep Adam out.

In a blatantly homophobic move, 20,065 people voted to keep the Queen guest singer away from the televised event due to his show's high "probability of lewd acts on a public platform."
Thankfully, not everyone in the country is as hateful, because a counter petition on the same website managed to rake in

What a scary time.
AirAsia flight QZ8501 was headed from Surabaya, Indonesia to Singapore on Sunday, but has since gone missing 40 minutes after it took off. The last contact that they had with the aircraft was off the coast of Borneo, though the reported times of the last contact are not consistent. One official said 6:17am Jakarta time was the last contact, while Singapore authorities said it was 6:24am.
The search for the plane was suspended once night fell in the region, due to stormy conditions, and it's expected to pick back up on Monday morning.
In the search, Indonesia sent three warships, maybe more, and five planes, while Malaysia sent three boats and three planes, Singapore sent a C-130 plane, and Australia extended an offer to also send boats and planes as well. The search is taking place

It's not unlike the Kardashian clan to steal each others styles, but this is taking it to the next level!
In Khloe Kardashian's latest selfie posted to Instagram on Tuesday, the reality TV starlet wasn't just posing with a plump pout like Kylie Jenner's, but with a giant Singapore nose ring attached to her nostril!
She even captioned the shot:

There's the singer we remember!
Mariah Carey's The Elusive Chanteuse tour got off to a rough start a few weeks ago, but it looks like she's back on track!
The singer belted out her timeless hit Hero while performing in Singapore on Friday night, and she killed it!
It's like no time has passed those pipes at all!
Take a listen

Big, big booty, J.Lo's got a big booty…
And she likes to show it off!!
As if Jennifer Lopez's too-hot-to-handle Booty music video with Iggy Azalea wasn't enough, the 45-year-old's performance outfits lately have been as bootylicious as ever!
For instance: while performing at the Singapore Grand Prix on Sunday, the mother of two rocked a white Versus Versace ensem consisting of a cutout top, high-waisted shorts, and a giant safety pin belt.
But not only were the shorts high-waisted, they were also shorter than short — the bottoms of both of Jenny's butt cheeks were def hanging out!
Then again, it's nothing we haven't seen before.

Where do you take someone who's trying to recover from a broken heart?
Well, if you're Kristen Stewart helping out Nicholas Hoult, then you bring him zip-lining and go-karting!
The duo, who just filmed Equals together in Japan, were spotting getting their extreme sport on at the MegaZip Adventure Park on Sentosa Island in Singapore and it looks like they had SO MUCH FUN.
In addition to their high-flying antics, KStew graciously stopped and posed for pictures with fans (above), which they immediately uploaded to their Twitter and Instagram pages!
Seriously though, what better way to get over a relationship with Jennifer Lawrence than by flying across a zip-line?
Adrenaline rush, FO SHO!
Ch-ch-check out the action-adventure duo zip-lining (below)!!!
