We Are Not Ready For Beyonce’s Belly!

IT’S OFFICIAl! BEYONCE IS PREGNANT…WITH TWINS!

That’s right, not one, but two mini beyonce babies and the world cannot wait!

The first time Beyonce was pregnant with Blue, she announced it on stage revealing her baby bump. This time she decided to surpass everyone on Instagram with a stunning reveal photo which is now the most liked photo on Instagram ever beating both Selena Gomez and Kendall Jenner! Some have been saying that she never did a photoshoot with Blue because maybe she used a surrogate, but maybe she just fancied doing one now for the sake of it. She is queen bey, she can do whatever she likes!

SLAY QUEEN BEY SLAY.

Trump’s Win: Top 20 responses on social media

The internet blew up, your whatsapp groups went mental and the first words to leave your mouth were probably WTF. There was definitely a feeling of uncertainty and despair in the air when you walked into work yesterday, and to think us Brits were only just starting to get over the blow of Brexit.

We think it’s fair to say the world is shocked. Some say they knew he was going to win, most say the impossible just became possible. Whatever your stance is on Trump’s victory, yesterdays result will go down in history as one of the most unpredictable, controversial and shock to the system (in every sense) things to happen in our time.

Every cloud does have a silver lining though, and yes, this lining is only visible if you squint really hard, but hey, its there and it’s all over your social media. The small pleasures we get from memes, tweets and other hilarious bits of media are what probably got you through the day.

Heres our top 20:

Is Social Media To Blame For Kardashian Robbery?

Social media, a technology that has changed the world is so many ways. Bringing people closer together, allowing people to access technology in a new way and a network that has ultimately changed how the way business works.

Visual networks such as Instagram and Snapchat allow us an insight into people’s personal lives, we are giving people permission to enter our exclusive lives and give people an opportunity to show others the way we live.

This is especially true of celebrities and socialites. Of course, The Kardashians are a huge part of this having some of the largest followings on both snapchat (Kylie Jenner currently ranks #1) and Instagram (Kim and Kendall leading the game).

So with this in mind, we turn to Kim Kardashian, who was robbed in her hotel room during Paris Fashion Week with £8 million worth of jewellery being taken from her, after being tied up and held at gun point.

Earlier in the day, kim had been showing off her expensive jewels on Snapchat and Instagram, with close ups of the diamonds sparking and being the centre of attention.

screen-shot-2016-10-07-at-14-35-21

This instantly shows that Kim is in possession of very expensive jewellery, also showing her possible locations and ativities at all times giving anyone an opportunity to strike. Many people are blaming Kim and other celebrities excessive use of social for the Robbery and other incidents.

However, what people seem to not understand is that Kim wasn’t ‘asking for it’, sharing a picture on social can be perceived in any way by any one, just because you post a picture of something you own certainly DOES NOT mean you are asking for someone to come and take it away, or for someone to point a gun at your head and threaten you and your family.However, being discreet about your possessions should maybe be considered in the future is what people are trying to say. We must remember she is a mother, a sister and a daughter as well as a human being.

I believe that social is not to blame for the Robbery, society is. Perhaps the Robbery was an inside job with new information that only people on the inside would have been able to direct the Robbers in Kim’s Direction and news that head security guard Pascal’s company is filing for Bankruptcy. However, if evil people didn’t exist, these hate crimes would not happen in the first place and social would be a place where you could do anything.

People on Twitter had A LOT to say about the incident, with other celebrities and people coming to Kim’s defence as well as Kanye cancelling a show mid way amongst other shows on his tour to show support for his wife. On the other hand, there are claims the stunt was all fake, didn’t even happen and people blame Kim for wearing jewellery in the first place and flaunting it.

screen-shot-2016-10-07-at-14-47-06

screen-shot-2016-10-07-at-14-48-52

So, was the robbery fake? Was security to blame? Was Kim to blame? Was social to blame?

I would like to think that someone wouldn’t lie about something so serious, especially when guns are involved. If this was your friend or family member how would you feel? Every one is entitled to their own opinion but I do not feel that social or Kim is to blame. Of course, social is a place to show off and let people know what you are doing, but this doesn’t give anyone a reason to attack.

Kim did not step out in public for a few days, but has recently been seen with her daughter and Kanye. The successful series Keeping Up With The Kardashians has apparently been put on hold due to the Paris incident.

Damn, Daniel: The New Viral Video

If you’ve been on the internet at all this past weekend, the phrase, “Damn, Daniel” is probably already stuck in your head.

Daniel Lara, a student at Riverside Poly High School in California, has become the new internet sensation after his friend Joshua Holz posted a 30 second video of him on Twitter.

The video consists of Holz narrating several short videos of Lara saying, “Damn, Daniel, back at it again with the white vans.” After the video was posted on February 15, it quickly became viral with 290,000 retweets and 370,000 likes on Twitter.

Whether you understand it or not, the internet seems to be having a blast!

For the past week, the internet has been exploding with memes inspired by the post. With the use of social media, brands such as Axe, Clorox and Vans, quickly jumped onto this and used it to their advantage.

People are even selling their white vans on eBay for as much as $25,000!

One of these memes immediately went viral with almost 30,000 retweets and 36,000 likes.

Even Daniel Radcliffe got dragged into it.

SoundCloud user ‘Suhmeduh’ went one step further by creating a remix of the audio; it has been played 833,000 times. I must admit, it’s actually quite catchy.

Of course Ellen DeGeneres had them on The Ellen Show. On the show, they talk about how it all started and how they’ve been getting attention from girls at the mall. Holz then received a personalized surf board with, “Damn Daniel! I was on Ellen!” and Lara received a lifetime supply of Vans shoes from the company itself.

Almost all viral memes on the internet seem to quickly die down so let’s see how long Lara and Holz get to keep their 30 seconds of fame.

Until then, Dammmmmmmmmmn Daniel     White Shoes Emoji

 

 

Kesha1

Celebrities and Fans Support Ke$ha on Social Media

Kesha1

The 28 year old recording artist, Ke$ha, has been in a year long legal battle after filing a claim against her producer, known as Dr. Luke. The accusations have included sexual assault and unfair business practices. Ke$ha filed her case in an attempt to break out of the extensive contract she entered into with Dr Luke and Sony, so that she can make her own music with Sony without working with Dr. Luke.

Unfortunately for Ke$ha, Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Shirley Werner Kornreich shot down the injunction that would have seen her cease her exclusive recording partnership with Lukasz Gottwald. This means that Ke$ha will have to fulfill the contract by recording another six albums with the man that allegedly assaulted her.

This case brings to light issues that revolve around the music industry, sexual assault allegations, and contracting business practices.

Other recording artists, writers, and feminist groups who have first hand experience with the creative industry began to reach out to the singer on social media. Lady Gaga, Lena Dunham, Alessia Cara, and Sara Bareilles are just a few names the publicly showed support.

The hashtag #freekesha has been trending on all social media platforms, and there has been a stir of people trying to instigate boycotting Sony.

Super Bowl 2016: This is Beyonce’s World, and We Are Just Living In It

slider1.3

Super Bowl Sunday was viewed by over one hundred million people this year. Viewers come for the game, the commercial, the snacks, or the halftime show. This year the Pepsi Halftime Show brought to the stage Coldplay, Bruno Mars, and Beyonce. Coldplay started the show with the infamous “Viva La Vida” and a technicolor spectacular that extended to the edges of the stadium. Bruno Mars then jumped in with his crew, giving us a close up look at some of the moves from “Uptown Funk”. Lastly, Beyonce appears like a flash of lightning with a whole formation of dancers, and a marching band. Some reviews claim that Coldplay was underwhelming, and that Beyonce stole the show. Beyonce does have a way of commanding attention, but she is also a master of social media strategy.

Screen Shot 2016-02-08 at 2.46.10 PM

On Instagram she begins her story by showing images from her secretly released music video, “Formations”. Just one day before the highly anticipated, Super Bowl Sunday.

Screen Shot 2016-02-08 at 2.46.22 PM

She shared behind-the-scene type videos that featured her crew, and the preparation that led up to the big moment. One interview in the video quotes, “You dont get a chance to half ass it. You have to go full out everytime, and you know why? Because she’s going full out. When you think you can’t push yourself anymore, you can. Theres still more to go”. Her determination serves as motivation for her fans, and everyone she works with.

Screen Shot 2016-02-08 at 2.46.53 PM

Not only was Beyonce using the Super Bowl as a platform to promote her own projects, she was publicly taking a stand with the Black Lives Matter Movement by having dancers and musicians behind her that emulated the Black Panther Party of Self Defense that played a role during the Civil Rights Movement. This resulted in a fairly politically charged performance, that was seen by millions.

Screen Shot 2016-02-08 at 2.47.10 PM

She performed to her fullest ability, like always, with the best of the best behind her. She even caught herself when she almost stumbled, and seamlessly joined back in with the dancers.

Screen Shot 2016-02-08 at 2.47.42 PM

Queen Beyonce announced during the Super Bowl, “The Formation World Tour”.

beyonce-formation-world-tour-dates-2016-banner-750x369

Tour dates and locations have been set, and released.

#formations and #blacklivesmatter were both trending hashtags after the SuperBowl.

Beyonce wins, yet again.
