If you haven’t listened to Beyonce‘s new surprise single, “Formation,” which dropped Saturday, well, you must not be living on planet earth. There’s a line in the song, also my favorite line, where she’s like,“When he fuck me good I take his ass to Red Lobster.” Well, my lobster-lovin’ friends, I know you’re not surprised to hear that Red Lobster got a 33% surge in sales on Sunday. Leave it to Beyonce to boost a business with a single line. All hail the Queen B.
The line also received 42,000 mentions on Twitter, so you can bet that Red Lobster had to respond. More »
This family is taking the term #twinning to a whole new level! What started out as a simple car selfie has turned into a viral sensation. After Kaylan Mahomes uploaded a photo of her, her sister and their mom to Twitter alongside the caption “Mom, twin & me,” the tweet garnered almost 20K RTs and over 30K likes (and counting). Here’s why: nobody can figure out which of them is the mom! The trio look more like triplets than mother and daughters. Now, the all-important question! Can YOU figure out which is the mom? More »
One week after the “Find the panda” debate, the Internet is literally losing it’s chill over how a dog would wear pants! Weird right? But after the whole debacle with “The Dress” last year, literally nothing surprises us anymore. It all started when a Reddit user posed such a question on Monday night. The post, entitled “Only baffling question I’ve ever come across on Facebook” asks, if a dog wore pants, would they wear them like we do, or would they cover all four legs but not their tail? Since then, the post has gone viral, garnering more than 1.8 million views in under 10 hours! More »
If you haven’t already seen this drawing, be prepared to go a little crazy! The Internet is going nuts this week over an illustration created by Hungarian artist Gergely Dudás (also known as Dudolf), in which a panda is cleverly camouflaged in a sea of snowmen. Now, we know what you’re probably thinking: “How could finding a panda be so hard?” Well, we thought the same thing. Even you “Where’s Wally” experts might have a hard time finding it!
After the horrific tragedy that occurred in Paris last night, a man brought his piano to one of the sites where the attacks took place to play John Lennon‘s world peace song, “Imagine.” According to the YouTube video‘s description, the pianist — who people believe is Davide Martello — pulled his piano (marked with a peace sign) by his bike to Le Bataclan, and the result was shiver-inducing. What a simple, yet powerful gesture to restore all our faith in humanity. In the wake of such a tragedy, people can make a difference with even the smallest form of compassion. Watch the beautiful video above — and make sure to have your tissues ready.
The other day I didn’t even have the energy to find out why #IStandWithAmell was trending on Twitter, on the same day that #IStandWithAhmed was. Suffice it to say I’ve had a rough week, and I felt like I could not take anymore annoyingly, disgustingly bad news. But today I saw that Arrow star Stephen Amell had to publicly apologize for his comments, and—interestingly enough—a video from a fan of his is what opened his eyes. It’s an interesting story, especially if you’ve been unable to see the bigger picture in the story about what happened to Ahmed Mohamed, so click inside for more.
It’s so hard! It’s so hard…. not to judge… the bejeezus out of these people!!!!! Aghhh! Okay. The Ashley Madison hack. I’m not saying it’s right. I’m not saying… that it all feels like the most glorious kind of poetic justice that never seems to happen, but is finally happening now. I’m just saying that it’s um interesting to see the names that are popping up. Josh Duggar was forced to admit to being a hypocrite (which is more than he said against himself when we found out he molested young girls, soooo that’s good?) and now this YouTube couple—who I never heard of until that very sketchy surprise pregnancy/miscarriage viral video—is in an awkward situation. One-half of the couple, Sam Rader, had an Ashley Madison account. Click inside for more!
First of all, I can’t tell you how long it took me to come up with the headline for this article. Like, how exactly do I explain what’s happening here? In actuality, it’s really quite a simple story, but what Kiran Gandhi did while running the London Marathon was/is such a big deal, I wasn’t sure how to frame it. And, like many of you reading this I bet, I wasn’t sure how I felt about it. Um, wait, what whyyyy?! was my first reaction. But upon reading Gandhi‘s blog post about the decision and her experience—and the message she wanted to send—I think I might be in love with her maybe? Click inside for more!
OMG. So, the Twitter Feud that erupted between Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swiftended days ago but its effects are still being felt today. An industrious fan put together a parody video that features Nicki and Taylor going to head to head with Miley Cyrus. Raven-Symoné is randomly injected and there is a special guest appearance by Beyoncé. I know I should be packing today but I cannot stop watching this video. OMG. I have died laughing and have been resurrected … and then died all over again watching and re-watching this geniusness. I have a feeling you might enjoy it as well. Be warned, this video features colorful language but it’s worth it, I promise.
