The New York Times is reporting that Travis Kalanick has resigned as CEO of Uber. The news comes after months of scandalous allegations regarding the company’s culture.
Kalanick’s resignation comes a week after Eric Holder presented his recommendations to Uber’s Board of Directors. Kalanick had previously hired the law firm of Eric Holder to conduct an investigation into allegations of misconduct. Holder specified in his Uber Report that the responsibilities of Uber’s Chief Executive, Travis Kalanick, be reallocated.
The report also calls for changes in how employee complaints are handled. Other recommendations include changes in employee policies and practices, a more independent board, and performance reviews to hold senior executives accountable.
Today, Kehlani released the video to her new song Gangsta which was featured in the summer blockbuster Suicide Squad. The movie opened this weekend making $135 million, a new record for the month of August. The movie, if you haven’t yet, is a must watch! This song is so catchy that I’ve had it on repeat since last week. Check out the video below.

Since it’s Monday, we thought we would share some new music that we’re currently obsessed with. Here is a new song by Prince Royce featuring Jlo and Pitbull. We can’t help but start dancing every time the song comes on.
Do you like the song? I can’t help but giggle because Prince Royce looks so young so it makes it odd to see him dancing with Jlo. Let us know in the comments if you think this will be a summer anthem!
News broke this morning that IT couple Ariana Grande and Big Sean have called it off in a joint statement their reps released early today.
“They both deeply care for each other and remain close friends,” their reps stated. “We kindly ask that the media respect their wish for privacy regarding this personal matter at this time.”
According to US Magazine, insiders claim they have been broken up for a few weeks and finally decided to go public with the news. They cite conflicting schedules and tours that would keep them apart over the next year.
Here is what they posted on social media leading up to the announcement:
The couple first confirmed their relationship back in October 2014. They’ve been trending all day on twitter as fans (and haters) weigh in on the break up. Some have named Bieber as the cause of the break up, when he was seen grinding on Ariana during a performance they did together.
I think it’s much more than that, they were such a cute couple. Any relationship is hard but when you’re a celebrity it’s multiplied hundreds of times over. That’s the thing with celebrity couples, they love hard and fast but their career just drives them apart.
We wish the best for the two of them and who knows what the future holds. What were your thoughts on this relationship? Are you sad? Happy? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter using #glamorouspaper.
