    From Kate Bush's 'Babooshka' to Fleetwood Mac's 'Dreams', the app's gone nostalgia crazy. We asked TikTok stars, musicians and psychologists: why?Kate Bush's 1980 weirdo-banger 'Babooshka' has filled many a TikTokker with glee. Credit: Getty You don’t need us to tell you that TikTok now has a huge effect on the music industry. With the power to launch careers with one viral clip, we’re seeing the birth of a new star every day. But how about the revival of an old one? Last year saw TikTok revive vintage hits, from ‘70s classics such as Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Dreams’ to ‘00s deep cuts...

    It can be pretty troubling to learn that your musical idol might harbour views that you consider problematic. Let our columnist guide you through the processWe’ve all seen the early signs, experienced the shock and sadness of watching a close friend or relative succumb to reactionary lies. The idea that it’s immigrants that have been underfunding the NHS since 2010, perhaps, or that it’s possible to get several hundred thousand identical fake ballots counted and verified just by lobbing them through the window of a voting station in a massive sack at 4am – all because of a grainy meme...

    A pro-President Trump heavy metal guitarist has been identified as one of the US Capitol rioters, according to a report. Multiple sources told the Indianapolis Star Wednesday that one of the suspects in the deadly Jan. 6 siege is Jon Schaffer, a founding member of a Florida-based heavy metal band called Iced Earth who is originally from central Indiana. Schaffer has not been charged with a federal crime as of early Friday, an FBI source confirmed to The Post. But several people have identified him as the man seen with his mouth agape in an FBI poster seeking out the...

    Britney Spears' ex-husband Jason Allen Alexander shared photos and videos with his followers as he attended the pro-Trump protests in Washington DC. Jason, who famously married Britney in Las Vegas in 2004 before their marriage was annulled 55 hours later, took a selfie wearing a red Trump 45 hat outside the Capitol, where protesters could be seen with flags. He captioned the snap: ‘DC. Millions showed up’, though he did not appear to have been among the people who breached the Capitol from his posts.

    --snip-- Although we really can’t expect things to go back to normal at the stroke of midnight, we nevertheless look towards 2021 with a sense of renewed hope. In Hong Kong, and in much of the English-speaking world, we say goodbye to the old year by singing a traditional folk song set to the words of a Scots poem. “Auld Lang Syne,” best translated as “long, long ago,” or “days gone by” is a crowd favorite, although this year it better be a virtual crowd. The song has attracted a huge number of beautiful interpretations and arrangements from musical stars...

    The US Attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee, Don Cochran, said Sunday that the man responsible for the explosion that shook Downtown Nashville on Christmas morning has been positively identified. ...
