In a noteworthy revelation, the band Hoobastank recently divulged that they had the opportunity to include Rihanna on an iteration of their tune “Inside of You” while she was still an emerging artist. Regrettably, due to an absence of prescience, they chose to utilize another rendition, thus waiving the chance to team up with the forthcoming international sensation.
Hoobastank’s Lost Chance
Lead singer Doug Robb took to social media to tell the story, confessing that there is an alternative version of the song with Rihanna’s vocals included. They had even adapted sections of the music to fit in a pre-chorus part for her. Nonetheless, upon hearing it, the band elected not to use it. Robb admitted that they had grown accustomed to the initial version and felt uneasy making alterations. He felt regretful for not considering Rihanna’s potential to become a prominent superstar.
The Unforeseen Rise of a Star
In all fairness to Hoobastank, Rihanna was still a budding artist after her 2005 debut album. Her smash-hit “Pon de Replay” had gotten noticed, yet she hadn’t yet attained the global celebrity status we are familiar with today. “Inside of You” did not accomplish the same triumph as Hoobastank’s iconic “The Reason”, which became firmly rooted as the band’s song. Still, it serves as a reminder that even minor decisions can have huge repercussions. Rihanna’s subsequent stratospheric success demonstrates how vital it is to spot budding talent and make informed artistic decisions.
Looking Back and Forward
As the music business progresses, collaborations have been a major factor in artists’ paths. Hoobastank’s experience with Rihanna illustrates the intricacies of such possibilities and the elements that effect judgment calls. Though they may have overlooked the opportunity to unite with a young Rihanna, both performers have since gone on to leave great impressions on the music industry.
Our universe is a confusing place, and there’s so much of it we’ll never see during our lifetime. However, while that might be the case, that doesn’t stop us from theorizing about what the future holds.
Venus Is Earth’s Future
Earth and Venus are similar in many ways, but the latter is far hotter due to the abundance of carbon dioxide. Of course, thanks to climate change, Earth could eventually record similar temperatures.
We’re Alone In The Universe
Anyone hoping to encounter aliens may be disappointed. If the Fermi Paradox is right, either life can’t exist on other planets, or it’s been destroyed without us even realizing it.
At First, There Was Nothing
Before the Big Bang, there was nothing. The universe just came to be one day, according to Stephen Hawking. How is that possible? We’re not sure if we’ll ever know the answer to that.
Time is Getting Slower
Scientists might say that the universe is expanding quicker, but they could be wrong. Due to the time it takes for light to reach us here, things could be moving slower instead.
Black Holes Are The End
If you fall into a black hole, that’s it. No matter what some sci-fi films suggest, once you’re inside one, you’re either shredded into atoms or perpetuated in nothingness until the end of time.
It’s All A Simulation
“The Matrix” might just be a film, but it could be rooted in fact. According to philosopher Nick Bostrum, it’s possible that a computer really could have created a simulation like that which we’re all inside. There’s no way for us to know – yet…
The Universe Will Destroy Itself
How will the universe end? By ripping itself apart, apparently. Rather than collapsing in on itself, it’ll just grow too much to exist any longer.
These theories definitely provide some food for thought – but do try not to let them give you an existential crisis.
