Selena Gomez Is Using The Weeknd

January 16th, 2017   admin  Uncategorized   No Comments »

 

In a turn of events, Justin Bieber has accused Selena Gomez of being an “opportunist.” By “opportunist,” he means he believes Gomez is using The Weeknd for promotion. As her history points out, Nick Jonas, Zedd, and now The Weeknd were all in a relationship with Selena as she promoted new music in which she collaborated on with them. Justin feels that Gomez’ actions are all “cookie-cutter stuff” because she did it with him as well.

President Obama’s Hopeful Farewell Address

January 11th, 2017   admin  Uncategorized   No Comments »

Last night, President Barack Obama said goodbye to all of us during his farewell address but left us with a message of hope and change. After serving the American people for eight years, President Obama recounted a presidency that experienced a numerous amount of successes as well as setbacks. “It falls to each of us to be those anxious, jealous guardians of our democracy…to embrace the joyous task we’ve been given to continually try to improve this great nation of ours,” President Obama stated to the American people reminding us to never give up on one another. Obama went on to remind us of our beginnings as a country, “Democracy does not require uniformity…our founders quarreled and compromised, and expected us to do the same. But they knew that democracy does require a basic sense of solidarity — the idea that for all our outward differences, we are all in this together; that we rise or fall as one.” In our great nation, we have seen the worst of human nature and we have seen the best of human nature. Don’t let one bad thing ruin you, be reminded of all that we, as a nation, have accomplished and will accomplish. Your struggle is my struggle and my struggle is your struggle. The 44th President of the United States concluded his farewell address with a message of hope and change, “…this generation coming up — unselfish, altruistic, creative, patriotic — I’ve seen you in every corner of the country. You believe in a fair, and just, and inclusive America. I am asking you to believe. Not in my ability to bring about change — but in yours. I am asking you to hold fast to that faith written into our founding documents; that idea whispered by slaves and abolitionists; that spirit sung by immigrants and homesteaders and those who marched for justice; that creed reaffirmed by those who planted flags from foreign battlefields to the surface of the moon; a creed at the core of every American whose story is not yet written: Yes, we can.”

Meryl Streep vs. Donald Trump!

January 9th, 2017   admin  Uncategorized   No Comments »

 

Ah, the Golden Globes! A night filled with glamour, beauty, and commentary on president elects. Award winning actress, Meryl Streep, took home the Cecil B. DeMille Award – a lifetime achievement award and gave a sweeping but serious acceptance speech. During her acceptance speech, the Cecil B. DeMille Award recipient spent her allotted time criticizing Donald Trump,

“There was one performance this year that stunned me…it sank its hooks in my heart. Not because it was good. There was nothing good about it. But it was effective, and it did its job. It made its intended audience laugh and show their teeth. It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in out country imitated a disabled reporter. Someone he outranked in privilege, power and the capacity to fight back. It kind of broke my heart when I saw it. I still can’t get it out of my head because it wasn’t in a movie. It was in real life. And this instinct to humiliate, when it’s modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life, because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing.”

I decided to not view the Golden Globes this year but, boy oh boy, I wish I had! It seemed as though Meryl Streep’s speech was the only thing that people could talk about last night. Of course, Mr. Trump had to defend himself on Twitter, “Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn’t know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes. She is a Hillary flunky who lost big.” Trump continued to say, “For the 100th time, I never ‘mocked’ a disabled reporter (would never do that) but simply showed him ‘groveling’ when he totally changed a 16 year old story that he had written in order to make me look bad.” You’d think the president-elect would have more important things to worry about than to feel the need to defend himself over someone’s opinion.

Throughout her career, Streep has been nominated for 30 Golden Globe awards and 19 Academy Awards, more than any other actor for either award. Streep has won both awards on multiple occasions, along with numerous Emmys and Screen Actors Guild Awards.

January 6th, 2017   admin  Uncategorized   No Comments »

Nicki Minaj took to Twitter yesterday to officially announce the end of her relationship with Meek Mill. “To confirm, yes I am single. Focusing on my work & looking forward to sharing it with you guys really soon,” Minaj said. “Have a blessed New Year.” The 34-year-old singer’s announcement came as somehow of a surprise as both Mill and Minaj have kept much of their personal lives from public view. The 34-year-old singer told Ellen Degeneres, “You know, I used to be secretive…I used to say, ‘I’m not in a relationship,’ even though I was in 12-year relationship. Now I feel like just going back to that and saying, ‘You know what? I’m single.” Rumors of an engagement have spread throughout their relationship. Meek Mill has yet to comment on their breakup. “Nowadays, I feel like [young women] see marrying into money—I think that’s a big thing now. I don’t want that to be a woman’s goal in life,” the “Side to Side” rapper told Marie Claire. We can’t wait to hear what new music the artist plans to share!

Most Irresponsible Pet Owner Of The Week: Justin Bieber

January 6th, 2017   admin  Uncategorized   No Comments »

 

When will the boy learn? Justin Bieber purchased a new puppy less than six months ago and has already given it away. One of his dancers, C.J. Salvador, adopted the puppy from Bieber and is now stuck with a very expensive bill for surgery. The dancer told reporters that his family agreed to adopt the 7-month-old Chow as Bieber supposedly was unable to care for him due to his work schedule. This comes as no surprise as the singer is infamous for pulling similar stunts. Remember when he got rid of his hamster, his monkey, and another dog? During Salvador’s trip to the vet he learned of the dog’s congenital illness. The pup was born with sever hip dysplasia and experts say he will not have the ability to walk by the time he turns 1. As of now, the only way to help him is to perform a very expensive surgery which will cost Salvador about $8,000. Will Smith’s son, Jaden Smith, was one of 90 donors that have raised more than the $8,000 required to pay for the surgery. Salvador also mentioned is apparent refusal to tall Bieber as he believes it is not his responsibility anymore.

Of course, 2016 would not let us go without another major blow! While ringing in the new year, singer Mariah Carey appeared to have had yet another vocal meltdown.The diva claims the malfunction that occurred on New Year’s Eve,  where from not conducting a sound check before the show. A sound technician for the event told reporters that there were no technical issues. A video has appeared which shows Carey performing a sound check. She also claims Dick Clark Productions intentionally sabotaged her earpiece to achieve higher ratings. Carey told sources that her earpiece wasn’t working properly and was assured it would be fixed. As her performance went on, Carey held her microphone out to the crown in an attempt to get the crowd singing and bring their attention away from the troubles. Who knows, for sure, exactly what happened? All we can say is it was definitely an embarrassing night for the legendary diva. Kudos to her for sticking it out like a champ and not letting it get the best of her!

Is this the end of her career?

January 2nd, 2017   admin  Uncategorized   No Comments »

On Friday night millions of MMA fans watched Ronda Rousey get brutally defeated by defending women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes. The question leading up to this fight was always in the air. Will Rousey stand strong or will Nunes defeat her? Everyone thought the fight would have lasted a lot longer then what it did. Nunes beat Rousey in just 48 seconds. Officials had to stop the fight due to the fear for Rousey’s safety.

Rousey took a year off after she was defeated by Holly Holm. Her year off was supposed to be a break so she can get herself ready for the fight against Nunes. It’s obvious that she wasn’t expecting what she got handed to her. The question in the air now is “will Rousey call a quits to her career after being to thoroughly beaten by Nunes?” It was mentioned that in an interview Ronda was speaking about possibly planning to retire. In a previous interview with Nunes she was asked to speculate Rousey’s future and she declined. Nunes said, “Rousey had her time, she did a lot for the sport. I thank Ronda Rousey, but Rousey’s time as the sport’s most recognized name may have come to an end.” With that being said, I believe it’s safe to say that this may have been Ronda’s last fight.
