This week on Name 3 Songs…

Love On Tour is over and Harry Styles shows gestures of gratitude and respect for fans in his closing speech. From the Barbie movie, Ryan Gosling gifts Ken’s guitar to Jimin of BTS for wearing the same outfit as the idol in the “Permission To Dance” music video.

Doja Cat goes on a Twitter tirade against fans using the “Kittenz” fandom name, and says they need to “get a job.” This isn’t the first time Doja has berated fans. In 2022 she tweeted that “Planet Her and Hot Pink were cash-grabs, and y'all fell for it.” We discuss why Doja Cat might be a bad person, what that means for her career, and if listeners even care. This is in stark contrast to Jungkook of BTS who recently went live to talk about how he considers ARMY to be his best friends.

The 1975 were banned from Malaysia after Matty Healy kissed Ross MacDonald on stage at Good Vibes festival over the weekend. This was preceded by a lengthy speech criticising the Malaysian government for its anti-LGBTQ+ policies. We discuss why Matty Healy’s actions are performative and harmful for Malaysian citizens, why Matty needs to check his privilege, and how to be a proper ally in this situation.
