Your HelloGiggles horoscope, May 19th to May 25th: We’re about to get a lot more sensual


Your HelloGiggles horoscope, May 19th to May 25th: We’re about to get a lot more sensual

This week is fun and communicative. With a brand new Gemini season beginning on May 21st, we are gaining in speed and lightness, and the mood is overall much more youthful and free.

It’s a great time to make new friends, start new activities, and change your lifestyle. The energy is sensual and lavish; we are seeking to make ourselves feel good and we’re feeling social and ready to bloom in this spring season.

Love affairs are highlighted this week: the air is passionate yet secure, we aren’t frantic, just excited enough, just secure enough thanks to grounding Taurus season.

Check out your weekly horoscope per sun sign below, and don’t forget to check your rising sign if you know it.

ARIES

Aries, this week is all about relationships. It’s a good time to do some shopping, try something new, or go on a date in an unusual place or with someone different from your usual style. Don’t be scared to stray off your usual path!

TAURUS

Money manifestor is your name this week! You have a lot of energy to dedicate to improving your life, and it’s going to pay off. Keep your head up and pursue your dreams; if you can focus on channelling your creativity this week, you can expect sweet surprises.

GEMINI

You are at a time of deep introspection, Gemini, and this week is no different. You want to be out and about, but the focus should be getting to know yourself better as opposed to getting to know others. You could have some interesting encounters online this week, though, so keep an eye open.

CANCER

You have been hard at work for the last weeks, and now it’s starting to pay off. Keep faith and keep working hard like you have been—rewards are just around the corner.

LEO

This week is a bit challenging for you, Leo. It seems like people around you are as stubborn as you are, and you might need to compromise this week if you want the energy to remain sweet. Time to learn some flexibility—should you show good efforts, things will smooth out for you.

VIRGO

The inner work you have been doing for the last weeks is paying off, and now it’s time to collect the rewards. You may feel like a new person—your mindset is shifting, you feel better able to be present, and you’re more able to feel joyful and positive.

LIBRA

This week is preparing you for a brand new way of relating, Libra. Whether a new relationship enters your life or not, now is a time to break free of previous relationship patterns.

SCORPIO

You are enjoying a time of popularity at work, so it’s a good time to start over with your coworkers, bosses, and clients. This week is offering you the possibility of redefining yourself and rebuilding relationships, at work and otherwise.

SAGITTARIUS

You have been focusing on expressing yourself and your creativity lately, Sagittarius, and this week you’ll be asked to start channelling this fire energy into a proper discipline. Your creativity is great, but do you have a plan to achieve your goals, with steps, commitments, and a routine? Now is the time to focus on setting this up.

CAPRICORN

This week is a rather introverted time for you. Well, when isn’t? But this week particularly you’re asked to bond with your family, bond with yourself, and nourish yourself with self-love and time off. Work could feel draining this week, so give yourself a break and show compassion for yourself.

AQUARIUS

You could receive unexpected sums of money or streams of income this week. It’s also a good time to get rid of gigs and possessions that are cluttering your time and space. Your creativity is off the charts this week, so follow your intuition and pursue ideas that are close to your heart.

PISCES

Pisces, it’s a good time for you financially—you might receive unexpected money, or perhaps get a new job/leave your current job unexpectedly. It’s all going to serve you, and you might see why next week.

When Newspaper Sports Columnists Were Kings of the Press Box

Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/Getty

Back in the days before the internet, before sports talk radio, and before Stephen A. Smith, Keith Olbermann, and Howard Cosell on TV, the newspaper columnist reigned supreme in the sports world. We picked up the paper to get the lowdown, to be informed, sure, but also to be entertained. We bought the paper for Jimmy Cannon or Tom Boswell.  The sports columnist told us what happened in a game but also gave us behind-the-scenes dirt that you couldn’t get anywhere else. The best of them held forth with style, attitude, and the uncanny ability to write well under pressure.

The 20th century is rich with memorable columnists: Red Smith, Jim Murray, and Sally Jenkins are just three who are featured in the tasty new Library of America sports anthology, The Great American Sports Page: A Century of Classic Columns from Ring Lardner to Sally Jenkins. This is the third sports title edited by John Schulian for LOA (Football; At the Fights, co-edited with George Kimball). Schulian made his name as a sports columnist in Chicago in the late ’70s, early ’80s and he brings a balanced, custodial rigor to his duties.

This collection takes us from the pioneering days of Ring Lardner and Grantland Rice through the mid-century titans W.C. Heinz, Joe Palmer, and Dick Young; digs deep into Schulian’s generation who came of age in the mid-’70s led by Diane Shah, Leigh Montville, Tony Kornheiser, Mike Lupica, Bob Ryan, Larry Merchant, and Dave Kindred, and also features the talents of Jane Leavy, Ralph Wiley, Michael Wilbon, and Joe Posnanski. Schulian also includes easily overlooked regional writers like Peter Finney, Emmett Watson, and Wells Twombly in addition to the usual heavyweights—Ring Lardner, Grantland Rice, and Jimmy Cannon.

Demi Lovato Thanks Best Friends Who Were There in Her ‘Darkest Moments’

Demi Lovato dedicated an Instagram post to the best friends who were there for her in her most challenging times as she shared a photo from their recent vacation in Bora Bora on Tuesday, May 14.

“Thank you for never leaving me in my darkest moments, for always drying my tears.. even when they’re from watching Moana,” the 26-year-old added, tagging pals Sara Elizabeth Mitchell (a.k.a. hip hop artist Sirah) and Matthew Scott Montgomery.

You’ve traveled across the country to visit me and stayed with me at my house for days on end when I’m struggling to make sure I’m okay but most importantly you never abandoned me like others did when I was going through shit.. you were there to listen, without judgement and only love and I can never fully express what that means to me.

Lovato, who survived a drug overdose in July 2018, said that Mitchell and Montgomery are two of her most steadfast supporters. “You’ve traveled across the country to visit me and stayed with me at my house for days on end when I’m struggling to make sure I’m okay but most importantly you never abandoned me like others did when I was going through s–t,” she wrote in the post. “You were there to listen, without judgement and only love and I can never fully express what that means to me. You’re the greatest friends I’ve EVER had and our future together is so bright. I love you both more than you can imagine!”

“Thank you for this past week,” she concluded. “PS. I’m both yalls biggest fans.”

Since the overdose, the “Confident” singer has sought treatment twice and has gotten a tattoo to celebrate six months of sobriety. “Demi is determined to stay motivated and sober,” a source exclusively told Us Weekly in April. “She knows at the end of the day everything is reliant on her own decision-making process.”

Michael Ealy Just Told Us The Craziest Thing He’s Ever Done For Love And We’re Getting The Perfect Guy Vibes

How can a man so fine be so crazy? That’s what most of us were asking after we saw Michael Ealy in 2015’s The Perfect Guy. But upon the release of his latest film, The Intruder, we’re finding out the actor might have a little bit of stalker in him for real– or at least he did.

We asked the 45-year-old what’s the craziest thing he ever did for love, and out poured a tale of posting up outside of his ex-girlfriend’s house for hours that we didn’t not expect to come out of the mouth of the ever-elusive star who is always so cool, calm, and collected. Granted, this happened during his college days at the University of Maryland, but we’re still intrigued.

Check out the video above for the details on Michael’s stalker days and what he’d do if he ever found himself facing an intruder like in his new flick.

Fleabag’s West End finale has officially sold out and we’re all inconsolable

Tickets for the stage finale of Fleabag are gone.

Fleabag

Words by Niamh McCollum

The West End reprisal of Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s hit show Fleabag was announced just hours before tickets went on sale, with the show subsequently selling out within 60 minutes.

Waller-bridge debuted Fleabag at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival back in 2013, and she has since become a household name following the finale of its second TV series.

Her one-woman play will run at Wyndham’s Theatre from 20 August to 14 September, for a total of 30 shows.

Although many fans are delighted to have secured tickets, the ticket-buying process was a trying time for everyone involved, and, of course, many of us were left empty handed.

If you’re still feeling a bit sorry for yourself today, then we come bearing the perfect cure: our favourite Twitter reactions to the Fleabag ticket-buying process/inevitable disappointment at the show selling out.

Nothing perks us up like finding a good gif or meme that accurately reflects our feelings of devastation at a situation that we have no control over – am I right?

So, without further ado, these are the seven stages of the Fleabag ticket-buying experience, as told by the eloquent users of Twitter:

  1. Sitting down at your laptop the moment tickets come on sale, feeling hopeful and savvy:

2. Getting onto the online ticket queue and nervously waiting for some sort of sign:

3. Trying to stay positive whilst riding the emotional rollercoaster that is the online ticket-queuing experience:

4. Doubting yourself as time goes on:

5. Being hit with this crushing reality:

6. Denial:

7. Acceptance:

If you’re still reeling from your inability to secure a Fleabag ticket, at least you can now take comfort in the fact that many of us feel the same. We would also like to send out a gentle reminder that because it’s a one-woman show, it will be sexy priest-less. Just saying.

These are the dreamiest easter eggs that we’re dying to get our hands on this year

We need ALL of these now.

Easter is fast-approaching, meaning hot cross buns, gold Lindt bunnies and creme eggs are returning to the shops.

Are we excited? Just a little bit – especially those of us who have given up chocolate for lent.

Disclaimer: For those people this might be a difficult read.

best Easter eggs

The most exciting part of Easter shopping is of course the selection of the dream Easter Egg, with 2019 serving up some cracking (get it?) offerings.

Are you shopping for a loved one? A child? A parent? A co-worker? Your boss? Or, like most of us, yourself? Well, whoever you’re buying for and whatever your budget, we’ve catered for everyone.

And whether you’re looking for the super luxe dark chocolate designer shells (you know, the ones that are more like artwork than food) or the classic Cadbury’s eggs that come with a mug (#nostalgia), we’ve got you covered.

Not to mention vegan chocolate lovers, there’s a whole other round up for you on the best vegan easter eggs to scour through – you’re welcome.

The most curveball eggs of 2019 have to be the solid cheddar Easter egg (umm YUM) and Aldi’s marmite offering (you’ll either love it or hate it).

And the prize for the most millennial offering has to go to Waitrose for their chocolate avocado (thankfully only avo-like in shape).

game of thrones easter egg

For Game of Thrones fans, there are dragon eggs – yes dragon eggs. And as always there are also some boozy offerings, from Baileys to even Prosecco infused shells.

But for the crème de la crème of Easter eggs, we’re going artisanal with this year’s offerings. We’re talking hand-piped shimmery pink shells from Betty’s, Venchi dark chocolate choco caviar and Booja Booja decorative eggs stuffed with powdered truffles.

We would recommend eating or being near chocolate while scrolling through the following – you are about to feel very hungry.

Now, sit back, browse and let your mouth water…

Apparently, Kate first spotted William when they were 9 years old

The story of the royal couple dates back longer than we thought

It’s a commonly known fact that Kate and William were first introduced to each other as students at the University of St. Andrews (in case you want to brush up on the unofficial facts, the Lifetime movie William & Kate: The Movie tells the romanticised version of how the two met).

Well it turns out, we haven’t actually been told the full story. The Duchess of Cambridge reportedly first spotted her husband-to-be during a hockey match at her prep school when they both just nine years old. At least, that’s what royal correspondent Katie Nicholl writes in her book Kate: The Future Queen.

‘Although [Kate] wasn’t especially interested in boys, the arrival of one particular young man had caught her attention. Nearby Ludgrove Prep school would often play matches against St. Andrew’s Prep, and there was much excitement when Prince William, a left back on Ludgrove’s Colts team, came to St. Andrew’s to play a hockey match when he was nine years old.’

‘William, like Kate, loved sports and was one of the best hockey and rugby players in his year. Of course, the arrival of the prince generated a flurry of excitement,’ she added. ‘It was the first time Kate had set her eyes on the young prince, but certainly not the last.’

Well, that’s just lovely!

Tattoos Were Once for Rebels. Is Popularity Killing the Art?

Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/Getty

In 1896, an Italian criminologist named Cesare Lombroso—whose infamous, disproved, scientifically racist theories include believing all offenders were part ape—wrote another spicy take on tattoos for the April issue of Popular Science Monthly.

After studying the prevalence of tattoos on Italian and German law-breakers, Lombroso came to the conclusion that “criminals, like savages, are very little sensitive to pain,” since their lot did not mind getting prodded by needles for the sake of making a statement.

At the same time as Lombroso was spouting his social Darwinist nonsense, aristocratic women all over London were taking to the boudoirs, rolling up their sleeves, and getting ink of their own.

Nutty chocolate-stuffed Krispy Kremes are a thing and we’re here for it

Yes. Yes. Yes.

krispy kreme

There’s so many delicious chocolatey treats going around at the moment we don’t know where to start – so we’ll be picking up everything. That includes the Hotel Chocolate Easter sandwiches, this Prosecco-infused egg and the brand new ruby chocolate Easter gem.

But if you’re looking for a non-Easter themed delight, what could be better than an Original Krispy Kreme doughnut? How about an Original Filled doughnut?

The masterminds over at Krispy Kreme have decided to stuff the classic sweet treat with two different flavours – you can choose from a chocolate hazlenut sauce (ahem, Nutella-esque), or the deliciously addictive salted caramel. Each doughnut is ring-shaped with the flavoured sauce oozing through the middle. That’s right – it’s not just lightly coated with the stuff, it’s actually filled. Yum.

These new additions will set you back £1.90, which is 35p more than the Original Glazed and 15p more than a topped doughnut.

The Krsipy Kreme ‘magic in the middle’ pop-up experience is currently happening in Great Newport Street, Leicester Square, London. It’s open for two days – from 8th to the 9th of March – to celebrate the launch of the new Original Filled dougnuts, and they’ll be handed out for free.

If you can’t make it down to the pop-up, you’ll be able to get your hands on the Original Filled Krispy Kreme doughnuts in stores and at your local supermarket until April 7th.

We’re so ready.

Prosecutors say Manafort’s ‘criminal actions were bold’ in redacted sentencing memo

In the sentencing memo for Paul Manafort, prosecutors wrote that the former Trump campaign manager’s “criminal actions were bold, some of which were committed while under a spotlight due to his work as the campaign chairman and, later, while he was on bail from this Court.”

Celeb Moments Were Plentiful Through Dull Super Bowl

ATLANTA (AP) — Not everyone is watching Super Bowl 53 for the love of football — celebrities are a big part of the day, too. Here’s a breakdown of what is happening with entertainers on Sunday in Atlanta.

___

GLADYS KNIGHT, CHLOE X HALLE FILLED WITH JOY

Gladys Knight was all smiles as she blew kisses to everyone, and Chloe x Halle were almost speechless after their pregame performance at Super Bowl 53.

 

Knight called her rendition of the “The Star-Spangled Banner” an “exciting moment” and “one to remember” in the tunnel of the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, where the New England Patriots played the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday in Atlanta. The 74-year-old singer was all smiles as she thanked everyone who supported her through the controversy involving performers who were criticized for performing at the NFL’s marquee game.

Before Knight performed, the R&B sister duo Chloe x Halle sang “America the Beautiful.” The group said their experience was “wonderful” and were “thankful to God” for the opportunity.

Both Knight and Chloe x Halle put on strong performances. They have been surrounded by the controversy after some have boycotted the NFL over treatment of Colin Kaepernick, the former quarterback who protested racial injustice by kneeling during the national anthem.

While some performers declined participation in the Super Bowl, Knight said she hoped her anthem would unite people.

Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi will headline the halftime show at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

___

JAMIE FOXX TAKES SELFIES WITH CIVIL RIGHTS ICONS

Jamie Foxx took several selfies with civil rights pioneers John Lewis and Andrew Young on the sidelines before kickoff at Super Bowl 53.

After taking pictures with them, Foxx shook Lewis and Young’s hand then told them they inspire him. Lewis and Young were sitting in the back of the golf cart while Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s youngest daughter Bernice King sat in the front.

Beforehand, Foxx strolled down the sideline and took videos of the crowd at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium as many chanted his name before the New England Patriots faced the Los Angeles Rams in Atlanta on Sunday. The Oscar-winning actor said he is a longtime fan of the Dallas Cowboys, but he is rooting for the Patriots.

“I’m going with Tom Brady today,” Foxx said. “I think he’s going to pull it off.”

Foxx bet on the right quarterback — Brady’s Patriots defeated the Rams 13-3.

Foxx said he’s been coming to the Super Bowl for many years calling each time a “different experience.” He performed at the Maxim party that also featured Future and Diplo on Saturday night.

“Every year, it’s special. It’s great. It’s nothing like football,” he said.

___

CELEBS & ATHLETES MINGLE

Ex-NBA player Steve Smith was around and  Jon Hamm, Swizz Beatz and Camila Mendes all shared the same luxury suite. They were only a couple doors away from Maroon 5 and Big Boi, who performed at halftime of the game.

“I loved Maroon 5’s performance. They rocked it,” said retired NFL player Curtis Martin, who played for the New York Jets and Patriots. “Travis (Scott) and Big Boi was amazing too. I liked how they mixed things up. Big gave that ATL flavor.”

Director Peter Berg said Maroon 5’s frontman Adam Levine “really delivered.”

Asked what Berg’s best moment was: “When he took his shirt off. I was like ‘Damn, looking good.’”

___

KEY STAR-STRUCK

Keegan-Michael Key is a celebrity in his own right, but the actor-comedian still gets star-struck when hanging around NFL players.

“The thing is being backstage with a lot of them. You turn the corner and it’s like ‘Oh, there’s J.J. Watt. Oh, nice to meet you. Oh, there goes Barry Sanders running around. It’s nice to be behind-the-scenes. You get to meet a lot of the players. I’m such an NFL fan.”

Key, who starred in the Comedy Central series “Key & Peele,” said his favorite player Charles Woodson played a role in the “East-West College Bowl” skit. Woodson won a Super Bowl with the Green Bay Packers in 2011.

“We met last year for the first time, and it was an important time,” Key said. “He gave us so much inspiration for that episode.”

Key hopes he can one day see Beyonce sing the national anthem and perform during halftime at the same Super Bowl. She was a halftime performer in 2013 and 2016.

“Now, that would be awesome if she could pull that off,” he said. “I really want to see her make that happen. I think she can. I mean, she’s Beyonce.”

Keeping Score: We’re 108 Years from Global Gender Parity

In every issue of Ms., we keep score—tracking research on our progress in the fight for equality, cataloging can’t-miss quotes from feminist voices and recording milestones for the movement. Starting this week, we’ll be doing the same on our website. Welcome to the first (digital) installment of Keeping Score!


Lest We Forget

“We have to find personal fulfillment. We have to follow our dreams.”

Glenn Close delivered an emotional speech at this year’s Golden Globes, winning for Best Actress for her role in The Wife. Close, who had had a storied career for 45 years in Hollywood but, until this week, hadn’t won a major award for her work in film, opened up about the limitations put on women and the urgency of allowing them to carve out their own paths.

“I’m thinking [of] my mom, who really sublimated herself to my father her whole life and in her ’80s she said to me, ‘I feel like I haven’t accomplished anything.’ It was so not right. I feel what I’ve learned through this whole experience is that women, we’re nurturers. That’s what expected of us. We have our children. We have our husbands, if we’re lucky enough, and our partners, whoever. But we have to find personal fulfillment. We have to follow our dreams. We have to say, ‘I can do that and I should be allowed to do that.’”

How We’re Doing

+ The 2019 Global Gender Gap Report from the World Economic Forum found that we are a depressing 108 years from gender parity worldwide.

Milestones

+ Ms. Executive Editor and Feminist Majority Foundation Executive Director Katherine Spillar was presented with an honorary doctorate at Texas Christian University’s Winter commencement.

+ Dr. Bernice Resnick Sandler, the “Godmother of Title IX,” died Saturday at 90. From 1969 to 1971, she served as the Chair of the Action Committee for Federal Contract Compliance of the Women’s Equity Action League, filing 250 federal administrative complaints against colleges and universities across the country for sex discrimination in education—inspiring the first Congressional hearings on the subject and the introduction of the landmark legislation that would change the landscape for women on campuses nationwide. Sandler was inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame in 2013.

+ Eleanor Maccoby, the first woman to ever head the Stanford University psychology department who was named one of the American Psychological Association’s 100 most eminent psychologists of the 20th century, has died at the age of 101. Her groundbreaking research addressed the relationship between gender studies theory and childhood development, and she made history for exploring the differences between the sexes.

+ Nancy Roman died late last month at 91. During her time as NASA’s first chief of astronomy—and the first woman to serve in a leadership position at the organization—she earned the nickname “Mother of the Hubble Telescope.”

Carmen Rios is the Digital Editor at Ms. , co-host of TRIGGER HAPPY on Binge Networks and co-founder of Argot Magazine. Her work has also appeared at BuzzFeed, Bitch, Mic, MEL, Everyday Feminism and Autostraddle. Like everyone else in LA, she once had a podcast; unlike everyone else, she stays pretty zen in traffic. You can find her on Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr.

The Faux Leather Leggings We’re Never Taking Off

Since the new year is officially upon Us, we’ve been thinking that it’s time to give our essentials collection an upgrade and, of course, our number one staple is always leggings. A style that can easily mix and match with everything in our wardrobe, it’s always smart to have as many leggings options as possible. We wear them to work when we can show off our trendiness, while running errands when we want to look a little extra chic and any time we go out and want to look like we put in a whole lot of effort into our outfit.

At Shop With Us, we’re always on the hunt for a design that highlights our figure while keeping Us as comfy as possible. This faux leather offering is snug but also extremely flattering and we are so excited to add this garment to our collection!

We can also switch it up a bit with the graphite (grey) tone. A flattering neutral that makes the perfect substitute for our trusty staple, this sizzling find is absolutely worth it!

The Golden Globes Were an Embarrassment Not Even Sandra Oh Could Save

Paul Drinkwater/Getty

This awards season thus far has been a scorching, sizzling, flaming mess. Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards just gleefully leapt onto the fire.

From the Oscars’ host fiasco to terrible, tone-deaf films becoming category frontrunners, to the struggle to find continued meaning and gravitas a year after the galvanizing first #MeToo-era ceremonies, the Golden Globes was already set in stormy weather. But it also had the potential to clear the skies to much-needed sunshine.

There was tangible excitement for hosts Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh, an unlikely and beloved pair. This is the venue where Meryl Streep and Oprah Winfrey delivered acceptance speeches that doubled as rousing sermons dictating our entire national discourse. Even the Globes’ notorious kookiness was promising: Times are tough, but at the very least we’ll probably get to see Lady Gaga take home an award. What fun!

We’re All Degrees of Separation From Cardi B: The Ubiquity of Hip-Hop’s Current It Girl

Anyone abreast of current trends, conversations, and the happenings of the times are merely degrees of separation from rapper Cardi B. Whether you love her, hate her, or are indifferent; whether you consider her a skilled rapper, or believe she is a flash in a pan at the current moment, Cardi B is music’s current “it girl.”

As of now, Cardi B is one of the ubiquitous ones — celebrities or pubic persons who dominate for a time, or for a lifetime, and if they are fortunate, dominate all or most facets of entertainment. She can be heard in most of the current music on the Billboard Hot 100. She is all over our televisions, and as of this past September, she is in women’s make up cabinets as she adds her name to the products of fashion daddy Tom Ford. Cardi can also add multiple Grammy nominees to her resume as her debut album Invasion of Privacy scored five nominations. Even after dealing with the not-so-fresh press, following her dust-up with Nicki Minaj at a New York Fashion Week event, fights with strippers and bartenders in strip clubs, beefs with other peripheral, women rappers, and as of recently, breaking up with husband Offset of Migos (more on that later), she has proved her brand is intact. 

Unquestionable Success

 

Cardi B

(Twitter.com/IamCardiB)

The Bronx-born half Trinidadian, half Dominican rapper has seamlessly weaved her way through various genres of music as her voice is heard in not just Hip Hop music, but also R&B, and most recently, pop music. She formerly had the highest selling opening week of any female artist in 2018, when her debut album debuted at No.1 on the Billboard Top 200 with 255,000 equivalent units her first week of sales tracking. The album has scored near-universal acclaim, headlining and turning out almost all of the worldwide music festivals. She even having to cancel a few after the birth of her daughter Kulture. She has amassed fans from all over the world in the process, and is becoming a global force

To compound the depth of her success, Cardi recently accomplished a feat no other woman rapper has done. She has amassed three No.1 Billboard Hot 100 hits: Bodak Yellow, I Like It, featuring Bad Bunny and J Balvin, and a feature on Maroon 5’s Girls Like You that sat at the penthouse of the Billboard Hot 100 charts for seven weeks. With her feature on the remix of Maroon 5’s Girl Like You, spending that many many weeks on the top of the Billboard charts, she also has the accomplishment of spending 11 cumulative weeks at No.1, solidifying her place in Hip-Hop culture. Not only is this noteworthy because it was attained while riding high on the success of her debut, but two of her chart toppers were tracks from her debut album with her first No.1 hit; 2017’s summer banger, Bodak Yellow was a chart-topping success with no features.  While that may seem like a trivial layer of accomplishments to some, to Hip-Hop heads devouring today’s Hip-Hop output, most albums are pregnant with features of contemporary rappers so this is a significant accomplishment. Therefore, none of her detractors are allowed to take away her shine by surmising her success is based on her features or being linked to other famous rappers.

Lastly, to reiterate for effect, her debut album was nominated for five Grammy awards with two of them being in the big four categories: Album of the year and song of the year for I Like It. The other three nominations were for best rap album, best rap performance, and best pop duo/group performance for Girls Like You shared with Maroon 5.

Notoriety’s Dark Side

 

(Image: Instagram)

As is the case with fame and fortune, detractors and the proverbial haters show themselves and began to tear down whatever success an artist attempts to achieve. People who may have supported her in 2017, now dig through her social media past to come up with problematic material in order to highlight any perceived ignorance, or ratchet behavior as some have termed it. It’s what’s expected of fame and ubiquity. For the most part, hardcore fans and casual listeners alike applaud her for her authenticity and ability to speak on matters with a raw, urbane, assertiveness that is familiar to some, but very much her own. However, others bristle at her ways and predict if she doesn’t get the right people behind her to set her up for continued success, a fall from grace is inevitable.

Cardi hasn’t exactly helped herself at times. There is the bar brawl at Angel’s Strip Club in Queens, New York, where sister bartenders got into a scuffle with members of Cardi B’s entourage in which they were alleged “to have thrown furniture recklessly, causing injuries to employees’ feet and legs,” according to USA Today. It was alleged that the sisters slept with Offset, and that ordering members of her crew to fight them was the rapper’s revenge.

However this lawsuit ends, someone in Cardi’s camp may need financial assistance, for actions of this nature, which will inevitably come from Cardi’s bank account. Settlements for the actions of careless friends rack up and get expensive. Recently, the tide has turned as news of Cardi and Offset’s impending breakup. Cardi took to Instagram to speak on her break up in a video that has since been removed. But here is what she said in a nutshell:

“He’s always somebody that I run to, to talk to — and we got a lot of love for each other, but things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time.”

Many sighed in relief because Offset has a wandering eye, and saw the writing on the wall when she first announced she was pregnant. This is a step in the right direction.

Then there is the ongoing beef with Nicki Minaj that won’t seem to crash, burn, and fade away into the memories of our smartphones. Shots are taken in radio interviews from one side and a brutal response is given on Instagram from the other side, resulting in eight-minute videos, uncovering all the facets of their multilayered squabble. The battle between the women probably won’t be over for some time, especially since Nicki Minaj recently took aim at Cardi B in her “Good Form” video. However, Meek Mill, Nicki Minaj’s ex, and the only rapper to publicly get herbed by Drake on wax, dropped a track on Nov. 30, entitled ‘Championships” which features Cardi, Jay-Z, and Meek’s former nemesis, Drake. The track garnered much attention on Twitter as users began trolling Nicki Minaj because of the interesting entanglements of this collaboration — that is Nicki Minaj’s arch-enemy and her ex on the same track. 

What Listeners Hope

 

(Image: Instagram/iamcardib)

What we hope for the young, multiplatinum superstar is longevity in her career. We want the hits to keep coming and for her star to continue to rise. Most importantly, we want her to retain her authenticity; that raw, raucous, New York City, but specifically Bronx way of being that many of us have come to appreciate — even love. We don’t want to see her fall victim to the same pitfalls that have befallen some of the most popular celebrities: bankruptcy, addiction, surrounding oneself with the wrong support system among many things. We hope she follows through with her separation plans from Offset and get far away from him. Offset, like many young rappers with money, fame, and their own brand of ubiquity, are hot in the trousers, attempting to “smash” anything walking. Monogamy is the last quality they will cultivate in relationships.

We want Cardi to make it because we the critics, social scholars, fans, and casual observers alike know ubiquity doesn’t last forever. One day you are on top of the charts, and the next day casual listeners are asking one another, “Remember (insert former celebrity’s name)?”

But in the meantime, keep shining; keep winning; keep reppin’ for New York City and the Boogie Down BX.

Multiple Santa Clauses Were No Match for the Wrath of Gritty

Actually it’s Santa who better watch out, specifically for Gritty.

Since the first evidence of Gritty’s existence in September, the Philadelphia Flyers mascot’s rapscallion reputation has been legendary.

And he upped the ante during the first intermission at the Philadelphia Flyers game against the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia when he took down more than one “Santa.”

Gritty was dressed as Kris Kringle himself in a traditional Coco Cola-ad style red velvet suit trimmed with white fur and hat. But some of the goalies skating around the arena were in Santa attire too. And apparently there was room for only one St. Nick in the house.

So the wide-eyed furry mascot the color of Tang was filmed chasing down other Santas to bulldoze them, leaving some of his victims face down on the ice. After he crushed his first target, it was clear Gritty was a hooligan unleashed on a war path.

He proceeded to body check other Santas, and smack them on the heads with a Christmas wreath prop. No one was fast enough to skate away from Gritty.

It may be only Gritty’s first season, but he already introduced us to the sport of Santa sacking on ice.

The Flyers won 3-2, and it’s safe to say that Gritty will be on the naughty list for his lifetime.

Get a load of Gritty’s latest antics below.

People were into it.

Joe Jonas: I Knew ‘Right Away’ Nick, Priyanka ‘Were a Match Made in Heaven’

Their biggest fan? Joe Jonas gushed over his brother Nick Jonas’ relationship with new wife Priyanka Chopra.

“Seeing Nick’s face when he first met her and the way he talks about her, and then getting to meet her and seeing what an amazing person she is, I knew right away that they were a match made in heaven,” the DNCE frontman, 29, told Entertainment Tonight on Friday, December 7.

Joe went on to detail the couple’s wedding. “My face hurts from smiling so much,” he noted. “The ceremonies themselves were so beautiful. The Indian ceremony, for me, was something new. We were all in tears.”

Chopra, 36, and Nick, 26, tied the knot in a Western ceremony in Jodhpur, India, on December 1. They married again in a Hindu ceremony the following day.

The “Cake by the Ocean” singer, who is set to wed fiancée Sophie Turner in France in summer 2019, also spoke about how his younger sibling’s nuptials influenced his own plans. “I am [so excited],” Joe shared. “You know, I didn’t even think about it much, to be honest, because it was about them. This whole week, we just let the celebration be about Nick and Priyanka.”

The engaged pair rushed to Chopra and the “Close” singer’s defense on Wednesday, December 5, when New York magazine’s The Cut published an op-ed claiming the newlyweds “married into a fraudulent relationship” and the Quantico alum is a “scam artist.”

“This is disgusting. @TheCut should be ashamed to have someone write such evil words,” Joe tweeted. “What Nick & Pri have is Beautiful Love. Thank u, Next.”

The Game of Thrones star, 22, added in her own tweet: “This is wildly inappropriate and totally disgusting. Very disappointed that The Cut would give anyone a platform to spew such bulls—t.”

The website later removed the article and apologized.

Joe sweetly extended the Jonas charm to Chopra in an Instagram post on Thursday, December 6. “Super Married! I Love You Both!” he wrote. “Welcome to the Family Pri! Congratulations!”

Republicans: We’re Committed to Using Black Business Vendors at 2020 RNC Convention

Annual political party conventions — whether for Republicans or Democrats — can be lucrative. That is why the stakes are potentially high for black-owned small businesses selected as vendors for the next Republican National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. Some local officials are hoping the 2020 RNC convention will bring an economic impact exceeding $ 100 million.

The RNC officially picked Charlotte, in July 2018, to host the four-day convention. John Lassiter, CEO of the Charlotte 2020 Host Committee, has told the media his group is “on track financially,” for reaching its goal to raise $ 70 million. The money will cover the convention’s projected cost of nearly $ 64 million and other emerging expenses. The committee aims to raise the funds by late 2019. The spending will be stretched over several categories, including $ 27.6 million for convention facilities; $ 8.4 million for event production, and $ 2.4 million each for office space and transportation services to name just a few. Yet, the big question is how many vendor contracts will be granted to local black entrepreneurs?

Charlotte NAACP President Corine Mack wants to ensure black businesses, specifically black women-owned businesses, have a seat at the vendor table. She believes at least 50% of the vendors should be people of color, with 30% of that group being black. Plus, Mack says the RNC should consider funding implicit bias and cultural proficiency training leading into and during the RNC. She said the training could help whites take a self-examination and realize their biases. “In making a decision to do better and be better, it allows us to build a bridge of understanding and inclusion,” Mack says.

Charlotte leaders have emphasized that they want to ensure minorities, women, and diverse groups are represented in providing goods and services. City Council  Member James Mitchell says Charlotte 2020 should aim to give 30% of vendor contracts to minorities and women,  Liberty Headlines reported. RNC officials told Black Enterprise Charlotte 2020 is committed to making sure black businesses are hired as vendors. But the committee also reported that it has not been determined what amount of vendor contracts will go to minority or women-owned firms, adding it is very early in the process.

“The Charlotte 2020 Host Committee is working to create a workforce and vendor opportunity strategy with a focus on local and regional spend, inclusivity, and diversity,” Lassiter says. “We want diverse residents and businesses, including black-owned businesses, to help showcase our community and realize the economic benefits of this major event. While it is too early to discuss specifics related to our vendor strategy, we are intentional with our efforts.”

Businesses interested in vendor opportunities should check for updates and sign up at www.charlottein2020.com. The name of those firms will go directly to the host committee for vendor consideration. “We have nearly two years to aggressively engage diverse talent and to collaborate across public, private and civic entities to make this a positive experience, one our community can be proud of,” Lassiter says.

Political conventions can be a hefty windfall for host cities in many ways. That could include providing them a robust financial economic gain, attracting more events, boosting tourism, and bringing international notoriety. The 2012 Democratic National Convention pulled in $ 163.6 million, a reportedly record high economic impact for a single Charlotte event. When the city of Cleveland, hosted the 2016 Republican National Convention, it generated an economic benefit of $ 188.4 million for Ohio’s largest city.

Vendors selected for the convention may be hired to provide a broad range of services that perhaps includes transportation, food, contracting and other assistance. The Charlotte area has a large roster of black businesses, including an estimated 13,000 African American-owned businesses, the Charlotte Post reported.

Wrapping paper with your face on it now exists so we’re stocking up

Merry Christmas from me (and me, and more me…)

Christmas is coming. Okay, we’ve still got eight weeks to go (not that we’re counting), but experts say that putting your decorations up early could make you happier – and when there are Harry Potter baubles to be bought and Prosecco Christmas crackers to put on ice then why wouldn’t you start the countdown immediately after bonfire night?

While you’ve no doubt already written your list for Santa, when it comes to buying for others it can get a bit tricky. Of course you know that you want these absolutely adorable stocking fillers, but what about your sister, or your other half, or your pet? What do they want?

If you’re really stuck when it comes to presents this year, why not give someone – or many people, for that matter – the gift of your face plastered all over some glitzy wrapping paper?

Gift website Prezzybox are selling the very personalised wrapping paper and we have to say, we’re big fans.

Sure, you’ll need something to wrap first, but it doesn’t really matter what the object is because the true present is immediately clear from the get go.

And they won’t forget who it’s from, either.

Just think of how happy you’ll be making somebody every time they look underneath the Christmas tree and see your face smiling back. You could even get them multiple small gifts so that your presence in their living room is really felt and hard to ignore.

A two-metre roll will set you back £17.99 – and there’s no excuse not to use it for everyone on your xmas list.

All you have to do is upload a photo of yourself and they’ll do the rest. Or you could get creative and make it strange by choosing a picture of the person you’re actually buying for. Or your dog! Who doesn’t want your pup’s face all over their wrapping paper?

The options are endless.

It’s a big yes from us.

Congratulations are in order for Hilary Duff and partner Matthew Koma! The Younger actress and musician are now the parents of a little baby girl. And her name is…drumroll, please…Banks Violet Bair.

Duff shared the news with her followers on the evening of Monday, October 29th, revealing that she gave birth on Thursday, October 25th.

“Banks Violet Bair,” she announced with a red heart emoji, “this little bit has fully stolen our hearts! She joined the world at home on Thursday afternoon and is absolute magic.”

Koma also shared a sweet Instagram announcement alongside the same pic. “We welcome a beautiful daughter, little sister, and best friend for life,” he wrote. “Could not possibly be more grateful for our growing family and for the [peach] who makes it all possible. Cloud ten.”

Duff and Koma announced they were having a baby back in June, and Duff has been incredibly open about her pregnancy journey since then.

“The boobs are big the belly is big the body is big,” she wrote on Instagram back in July. “Man.. pregnancy is hard. Giving love to all mamas who make it look effortless… this journey is hard as hell and also incredibly special. […] sick of getting up 9 times a night to pee and looking at this weird body in the mirror that is not my own at the moment.”

Months Before Pittsburgh Shooting, Stripe and PayPal Were Warned About Gab

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

Months before they cut ties with the extremist-friendly social-media site Gab, tech companies were warned about incitement to violence on the website, according to emails reviewed by The Daily Beast.

The payment processors Stripe and PayPal stopped working with Gab on Saturday after it was revealed that a man who allegedly murdered 11 people at a Pittsburgh synagogue had been an active Gab user who authored violently anti-Semitic posts and shortly before the killing spree, appeared to announce his intentions to his Gab followers. But over the summer Stripe and PayPal received warnings about the site’s role in online hate.

The Twitter user @DeplatformHate has been documenting the far right’s partnerships with Silicon Valley for nearly a year and repeatedly tweeted about Stripe’s ties to Gab in August. After Stripe’s general counsel reached out on August 17, Deplatform Hate sent him and Stripe’s CEO a long email on August 24, documenting the issue.

That train though!!

Princess Eugenie’s dress gave us major old Hollywood vibes and she painted an utterly romantic picture walking up the chapel’s staircase, with a dramatic train trailing behind her. Prince Andrew apparently gave away some key elements of the dress away prior to the big day as he revealed he was worried about stepping on the train of her gown.

Designed by Peter Pilotto, the folded, slightly off the shoulder neckline dipped down into a lower V at the back for just a flash of skin. According to ITV, the subtly patterned fabric on the gown was designed especially for Princess Eugenie.

She accessorised with a pair of emerald and diamond earrings, which were matched beautifully to a tiara she borrowed from her grandmother Queen Elizabeth.

Beautiful, exotic places that were shown on Survivor

ADVERTISEMENT


If you have never watched Survivor in your life, then you are missing out on some good television. Survivor is one of the most popular American reality television shows. In the show, the contestants are stranded on exotic islands without much to survive. As the name suggests, the show is all about surviving the challenges they come across and making it to the end to get their hands on the prize money. Some of the locations shown on Survivor are truly breathtaking, and it almost feels like they are perfect for a vacation. Here are some of the beautiful exotic places that were shown on Survivor.

The Herbert River

The Herbert River is located in Queensland, Australia. Shown during the Australian Outback, contestants had to battle some very harsh climatic conditions in this location.

The Cook Islands are situated midway between Polynesia and Tonga. The islands resemble Hawaii in many ways and are filled with lagoons, beaches, coconut groves, and so much more. The best part about this location is the people. The locals are extremely friendly and approachable.

Shaba National Reserve

This reserve is located in Kenya and proved to be a truly challenging experience for the contestants of Survivor. They were dropped right in the middle of a wildlife reserve and asked to make it all the way till the end. Without the challenges, the Shaba National Reserve is a wonderful place to experience wildlife.

Cape Engano

Another stunning location with blue waters and endless stretches of white sand, Cape Engano is located in the Philippines. What takes your breath away is the beautiful landscape you get to witness at Cape Engano. It is one of the top places that anyone who takes a trip to the Philippines must visit.

The new David Attenborough show looks super intense and we’re so here for it

It’s good to have you back, Sir David.

BBC NHU/Theo Webb

Happy World Animal Day, everyone! We’re kicking it off with some exciting animal-related news as Sir David Attenborough is back with yet another nature documentary series, which will fill the void that Planet Earth and Blue Planet left when they ended. He’ll be bringing a new show to the BBC called Dynasties and the exciting trailer dropped earlier today, proving that it’s unlike anything we’ve seen before.

The nature documentary is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before, as it’s going to hone in on just five species of animal: emperor penguins, tigers, lions and more. According to the BBC,every episode will focus on an individual endangered animal and follow their struggle for survival in the wild. The series, which took four years to film and create, looks wasymore like a tense reality TV drama centred around an animal rather than a nature documentary. We’re here for it.

If you’re a diehard Planet Earth II fan, the team behind it are the same one responsible for Dynasties — so you know it’s going to be good.

And of course, Sir David Attenborough will be lending his iconic voice to the show and seems to have travelled the world for the show, which isn’t bad going for a man who’s in his nineties now.

There’s no word yet on when the new show is set to drop, however the trailer definitely has us hungry for more.

TBH if the entire show was just an hour of that baby penguin shuffling through the snow, we’d probably be on board.

American Gods (and Good Omens)


US_Starz_American_Gods
Ian McShane reprises his role as Mr Wednesday in American Gods Season 2.

The first season of American Gods was one of 2017’s TV highlights. It was indulgently slow but engrossing storytelling, with a deliciously charismatic central performance from Ian McShane as Mr Wednesday. It also looked glorious. Since it ended, fans have been eagerly awaiting news of the second season of the TV adaptation of the Neil Gaiman novel.

Dogged by behind-the-scenes issues which saw Season 1 showrunners Michael Green and Bryan Fuller exit, and with reports that replacement showrunner Jesse Alexander is being sidelined, fans will be looking for some reassurance that Season 2 is, well, going to be good.

Great to hear, then, that the much-celebrated author – who doubles as executive producer on the show — Gaiman will be in attendance at the NYCC panel to present an exclusive first look at Season 2. He’ll be joined by cast members effusing about how Season 2 ups the ante. Gaiman will also pop up again on Saturday, giving fans a glimpse of Good Omens with stars David Tennant and Michael Sheen – another panel totally worth checking out.

Like She-Ra, American Gods is also bringing an experiential treat for fans at NYCC. The Motel America Diner, one of the show’s key locations, is going to be painstakingly recreated. Littered with Easter Eggs, the diner also presents fans with the opportunity to bag some American Gods-themed swag — by making a sacrifice to the Gods, of course.

WHEN? The American Gods panel takes place between 1.30-2.30pm on Friday, October 5 at the Hammerstein Ballroom. The Good Omens panel is at 10am on Saturday, October 6 at the Madison Square Garden theater.

Riverdale

We’re just days away from Season 3 of Riverdale, and with so many theories swirling around what the next twist in Archie’s tale will bring, we’re looking to the NYCC panel to give us eager fans a deeper insight into how the third season will pan out. And if the opportunity to discover more early doors about TV’s maddest, darkest and most unflinchingly subversive teen show doesn’t fire you up to fever pitch, you need to get with the Riverdale programme pronto.

The panel will feature series cast and producers fielding questions, as well as a sneak peek at Season 3. The premiere will pick up immediately following that dramatic Season 2 finale in which we saw Archie thrown in prison, while ensuing episodes could see a cult influencing the inhabitants of Riverdale, and even zombies terrorising the town. Cannot. Wait.

WHEN? The Riverdale panel takes place between 10-11am on Sunday, October 7.

Mortal Engines

Peter Jackson fans will be champing at the bit for any insight whatsoever into Mortal Engines – and NYCC promises to deliver. Jackson himself will be on hand at the panel to answer questions put to him by moderator Andy Serkis, as well as – hopefully – questions from the audience. Jackson will be joined by members of the cast and production team – including director Christian Rivers, and partner and collaborator Fran Walsh — presenting the first eight minutes of footage from the film.

He’ll also be overseeing a detailed presentation of how the team brought a world to the screen in which mobile, motorised cities prey on other cities.

WHEN? The Mortal Engines panel takes place on Friday, October 5 at 12pm in the Hulu Theater, Madison Square Garden.

Netflix and Chills

In an obvious yet simultaneously genius play on the popular colloquial euphemism for something you’d actually probably describe as the opposite of relaxing in front of the telly, Netflix and Chills brings the scares to NYCC this October.

This panel sees the casts of upcoming Netflix shows The Haunting of Hill House, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Umbrella Academy assemble to chat all things supernaturally spooky about their respective series as Halloween creeps closer. It’s suitably seasonal, as well as giving you three shows in one to get excited about.

But wait, there’s more. The audience will also be treated to a first look at The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance before anyone else. Fans of the Jim Henson 1982 animatronic original won’t want to miss this.

WHEN? Netflix and Chills takes place between 7.30-10pm on Friday, October 5 on the Main Stage at the Javits Center.

Hellboy


Hellboy-Harbour
David Harbour as Hellboy.

It’s been 10 years since Hellboy was last on the big screen. In Guillermo del Toro’s original 2004 movie and its 2008 sequel, Ron Perlman was the hench offspring of a demon and a witch otherwise known as Big Red. In Neil Marshall’s reboot, the role is taken over by Stranger Things star David Harbour. And a better fit it’s difficult to envisage.

Whispers suggest that the NYCC panel will give us our first glimpse of footage in the form of a trailer — presented by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, no less, alongside the cast including Harbour himself, plus Ian McShane fresh from his American Gods panel appearance, Sasha Lane and Daniel Dae Kim.

WHEN? The Hellboy panel takes place between 11am-12pm on Saturday, October 6 on the Main Stage at the Javits Center.
