Sound the alarms!
Gays, people who like gay things, human beings, mean dogs, not-so-nice cats, ghosts that aren’t too scary, people who like to protest, and witches with good, workable spells: WE ARE IN THE MIDST OF NATIONAL CRISIS.
Mariah Carey’s record for most weeks at no. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 is in jeopardy and everything is fucking terrible.

For those who don’t know, Mariah Carey holds the record for most weeks at no. one. For 16 weeks in 1995/1996, “One Sweet Day” was reigning supreme. It was honestly a great time to be alive, something kids today could never understand.
Now, nearly 20 years later, a song called “Despacito” is threatening it’s legacy. “Despacito” has been number one for 11 weeks. It only needs five more to beat Mariah’s record.
