Popular singer and influencer Madison Beer has responded to rumors claiming that she thought she was “too good” for League of Legends’ K/DA, and even hinted at her return to the successful pop group.

Riot Games has been known for incorporating musical acts with their League of Legends events. They have released multiple songs each year ahead of the World Championship, as seen with their latest track “Take Over.”

However, following their debut in 2018, one of the most popular groups they have put together, K/DA, has also been confirmed to return with a full album later in the year.

The pop group is based on four fan-favorite champions, Evelynn, Ahri, Kai’Sa, and Akali, with each character voiced by artists from around the world.

Madison Beer was one of the singers involved with the group for their debut track “POP/STARS.” But, after she was absent from their 2020 release, “THE BADDEST,” many fans were concerned that she would be leaving her role in the group, following her personal success in recent years.

The singer responded to the claims that she was ‘too good’ for League of Legends, addressing fans’ concerns during an Instagram Live on September 23.

“They said that you thought you were too good for League of Legends,” said one comment, before Madison hinted at her return to K/DA, “Well I’m contractually not allowed to talk about certain things, which is not shade, things that are coming.”

Madison Beer ‘still working with’ Riot Games

“I just want to say that that’s not correct, I love League of Legends,” she added, putting an end to the bizarre rumors about her departure from the group.

Madison followed up, revealing that she was grateful to have played a part in K/DA. She then dropped more hints about her future plans, “I’m abundantly grateful to have ever worked with them and to be continuing to work with them, that is not a worry.”

While it is unclear if she will retain her old role as Evelynn in the group, with the K/DA album expected to release later in the year, fans won’t have to wait too much longer to find out for sure.

Diana has descended from the heavens of Mount Targon here on Earth ⁠— or so you could be mistaken into thinking. Scottish cosplayer ‘anaelic’ has once again delivered the goods for League of Legends fan, putting on an epic display with her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay.

Seeing a Diana cosplay for League of Legends is rare. However, finding an exquisite one is almost impossible. The Scorn of the Moon, with her heavy armor and massive Moonsilver blade, isn’t up there with one of the popular champions to cosplay.

However, that hasn’t stopped anaelic from creating one of the best ⁠— if not the best ⁠— Diana cosplay with her incredible rendition of the Lunari’s Dragonslayer skin.

The Dragonslayer skin for Diana is one of her most intricate, but that didn’t stop anaelic.

Anaelic has been working on her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay since lockdown began. She was originally going to take it to conventions, but with 2020 stopping all of those, she instead used the project as motivation.

“This project has instead been my distraction, the thing that’s kept me motivated to stay productive, and I’m so proud that I at least have this to show for all the extra time I’ve had,” she said on Instagram after completing her cosplay.

You can tell just how much effort she put into it right from the first glance. Anaelic has managed to recreate the Aspect’s sunset-colored armor perfectly, not forgetting a single panel on Diana’s intricate outfit.

She managed to keep all the pieces together with velcro, although the cosplay is ⁠— understandably ⁠— very hard to get around it.

“I honestly don’t know how I’m going to survive a full day at a con in this cosplay because it is so hard to move about it! It was well worth it though because we got some amazing photos,” she added.

Anaelic also considered all the small details ⁠— she recreated the smoky effect on her blade with a smoke machine and LED lights built into the crescent. The cosplay is not only one of the best Diana ones we’ve seen, but one of the best cosplays of the year. Period.

The Scottish cosplayer isn’t stopping here though. If you’re wondering what anaelic’s next project is, wonder no more. She is currently working on a Spirit Blossom Lillia cosplay, and she’s trying to make it perfect from head-to-hoof. We’ve even covered her progress on it so far!
