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.

No word yet on who is to replace. However, Recode has some speculations on who it might be including YouTube’s CEO Susan Wojcicki.

Music Monday – Prince Royce – Back it up ft. Jlo & Pitbull

Big Sean & Ariana Grande Over After 8 Months

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.

Hillary Clinton Officially Launches Presidential Campaign

Hillary Clinton officially launched her Presidential campaigned over the weekend to no one’s surprise. She released a video on Twitter which featured different demographics including an older woman nearing retirement, young gay and straight couples, and immigrants opening a business. Watch the video below.

After doing a great job as Secretary of State, she has been putting her secret plan into motion. Without any viable contender, it seems like Hillary Clinton can easily secure the Democratic nomination and face whoever becomes the Republican nominee. In her short video, she didn’t really talk about her plan for America’s future. I think a lot of people are quickly rallying behind Hillary because of her name and the Clinton name.

I’m very on the fence about Hillary because of how nasty things got in 2008 when she was competing against Barack Obama in the primary. I think it’s fair and understandable that we reserve judgement until we hear her stance on all of the issues and her economic plan for the future. There is no denying that she would make history if she becomes the first woman elected President of the United States, just like Obama made history being the first African American.

However, I think voters will look beyond that and really press her on her views and they should. It’s too important to vote blindly for someone based on gender. What are your thoughts? Did you like Hillary’s video? Are you excited? Will you be supporting her? Let us know in the comments below or on twitter using #Glamorouspaper
