The sobbing Minami Minegishi, 20, has been seen by millions on YouTube after she failed to abide by her handlers' cardinal rule - NO DATING.

Minegishi's bizarre mea culpa came after a gossip publication ran photos of her leaving the apartment of her boyfriend, Alan Shirahama, a boy band dancer.

In the video on the official site of her band, AKB48, she said she made the decision to shave her head to show contrition for "thoughtless and immature" actions.

It's been more than 15 years since Hanson burst on the scene with "MMMBop." 

Needless to say, they perform the hit song (and others) in a noticeably lower key nowadays than when Taylor and Isaac were teenagers and Zac was a little kid.

Check out them performing "MMMBop" live for Fifi and Jules in September:

The brothers can still harmonize, for sure. Think this would've been a hit if they were just releasing it now and you didn't know the catchy song yet?

For comparison, here's a live performance of the song from 1997:

Hey, Taylor Swift...

I know you're down in the dumps/But at least you're rich, and your songs don't suck/So take that 13 for luck and find/That there's 100 others waiting in line.

So The Ready Set croons in a just-released new track, titled "For the Better" and dedicated to the young singer and her unfortunate love life.

The artist, of course, recently split with Harry Styles and was then mocked by Michael J. Fox. But let's hope this anthem gives her a bit of hope. Listen now:

Two new covers of the Taylor Swift classic "I Knew You Were Trouble" have hit the Internet.

The first, by British artist Tom Odell, slows down the track a great deal and has already received effusive praise from the singer herself, as Swift Tweeted upon hearing this rendition:

"I was already a @tompeterodell superfan... Now I’m just floored. This is so good."

The second actually comes from Modern Family star Ariel Winter, who has unfortunately made headlines over recent weeks for an ugly custody dispute involving her mom and sister.
