One Video: Tell Me You Love Me by Demi Lovato

Every week, a slew of new music videos hits the web. Watching them at your desk is not time theft because you deserve it; think of it as a nice reward for surviving another work week.

As such, you have two immediate options to stop the crashes if you’re finding yourself affected: turn off notifications, or set your date back to some point in time before December 2nd, 2017. You can also use the public beta of iOS 11.2, which apparently fixes the issue.
