Sunday Paper: February 28, 2016

Here’s a recap of a few top stories in entertainment and pop-culture news in your Sunday Paper!

Daaammnnnn, Daniel, back at it with the white Vans,” is all we’ve been hearing on social media this week.

Two high schoolers at Riverside Polytech, Daniel Lara (as himself) and Joshua Holz (camera man), recently had their 15 minutes of fame with a compilation of Snap Chat videos that went viral. The video is of the stylish teen sporting some beach-y threads and his signature white Vans. The exuberant camera man boosts his buddy’s ego by saying two words, “Damn, Daniel.

Since the video surfaced on the web Daniel and Josh have appeared on The Ellen Show, and Daniel has received marriage proposals and modeling contract offers. The humble teen has turned down the offers because of his age and future goals a source told Hollywood Life.

“Daniel was offered a modeling job this week but he turned down the contract because he wants a swimming scholarship and he can’t have both. Daniel is pretty modest about everything that has happened since the video went viral,” Daniels friends said about him.

It’s good to see this teen not letting the fame go to his head, but we could only imagine what every other Daniel has been going through the past few days.

This week was a devastating week in music when pop star, Ke$ha was denied her motion to be released from her Sony recording contract.

After allegations of one of Ke$ha’s producers raping her she refused to make any new music but her contract required her to still make six more albums. Ke$ha appeared in court earlier this week to hopefully be released from her contract, but the judged denied her claiming stating there was ‘insufficient evidence’ against Sony.

There have been protest against the judges ruling and Sony all over the country and A-list celebs like Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato, and Lady Gaga have spoken out against the misrule. Adele, who is bigger than ever gave a shoutout at the Brit Awards during her acceptance speech.

I’d also like to take this moment to publicly support Ke$ha,Adele said after receiving her first award of the night.

Adele is signed to Columbia Records which is under the ownership of Sony Music Entertainment, so she could have easily put her own career in jeopardy with the ballsy comment.

Ke$ha recently posted to Facebook about the support and power of her fans. You go, girl!

Sunday Paper: December 27, 2015

2015 is almost over so we’re taking you through 10 of 2015’s top trending moments.

10. Shia LaBefou ‘Just Do It’ 🙇🏻
Full equipped with his rat tail, LaBefou has had a rather interesting year. From being arrested and live tweeting his own reactions to his starring roles to making inspirational videos, we were all motivated to ‘just do it’.

9. Baby Yeezus👨🏾👩🏻👧🏽👶🏽
After the announcement of Kimye expecting their second child and revealing it would be a boy, the world could not wait to meet baby Yeezus. Kim Kardashian gave birth to Saint West on Dec. 5th after posting an Instagram photo just hours before her delivery captioning it, ‘Ready whenever you are lol.’ Saint joins North as another addition to the Kardashian-West clan.

8. Kanye President 2020 👨🏾🇺🇸 🗽
Yeezus for President! At least that’s what the 38-year-old rapper proclaimed at this year’s MTV VMAs. After giving a speech that seemed to do nothing but drag on after receiving the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, Kanye announced his run for the White House in 2020. We aren’t entirely sure if he was serious because he was under the influence and drinking something brown, but we can only cross our fingers he wasn’t serious…

7. Drake Diss 👦🏽👊🏾🔥👨🏾
R.I.P. Meek Mills. Just when you thought the Internet killed Meek Mills, Drake went ahead to bury him. After Meek claimed that Drake doesn’t write his own raps he tried to make a diss track about Drake in which Drake fired back with three diss tracks that had the Internet blowing up. Do you need some ointment for that burn, Meek?

6. Justin Bieber Album📀🙏🏼
What do you mean you didn’t get J-Bieb’s ‘Purpose’ album? The ‘Where Are Ü Now’ singer returned to music this year with heavy celebrity promotion and memes for his new album ‘Purpose’. The Biebs also performed at the MTV VMAs for the first time in five years and broke down on stage. After cleaning up his bad boy image, Justin appears to have a new found faith, respect for his fans, and purpose for his music.

5. White/Gold vs. Blue/Black Dress
I mean, should we really speak about it? You know, the dress that started wars, broke families and friendships, and reeked havoc on every soul it encountered? Okay maybe that’s a little dramatic, but that damn dress fooled us all. Earlier this year a photo surfaced of a dress that appeared to be white/gold while others saw it as blue/black. The internet went crazy asking for answers as to how two people looking at the same dress could be seeing different colors. The answer? The lighting in which the dress basically plays a trick on our retina and how we perceive color.

4. Miley, What’s Good? MTV VMAs 👸🏾🚫👧🏼
Talk about an ‘oh sh*t’ moment! At this year’s VMAs after the ever graceful Nicki Minaj took to the stage to accept her award for Best Hip Hop Video. After eloquently thanking her pastor, Minaj turned to host Miley Cyrus and called her out for talking badly about Minaj in a previous interview. ‘And now… Back to this bitch that had a lot to say about me in the press the other day. Miley, what’s good?’ Meme history.

3.Steve Harvey Miss Universe 👨🏾🙇🏾👸🏽🚫👩🏻👸🏻                                       At last week’s Miss Universe pageant, Family Feud host Steve Harvey made the most epic mistake on television. After announcing Miss Columbia as the new 2015 Miss Universe, he later back tracked and said she was the runner up. The real Miss Universe 2015 title would go to Miss Philippine. The Internet exploded with memes of Harvey’s cringe worthy mistake. Harvey apologized profusely for his mistake and even poked fun at himself while posting a Christmas photo with the caption ‘Merry Easter y’all’.

2. Adele Album 🙋🏼.                                                                                    We’re just going to throw out a random number and see if you can find any significance in it. 3.38 million… Any ideas where we got this number? Oh, that’s just the album sales for one week of Adele’s new album ‘25’. The ‘Hello‘ announced her new album earlier this year and blessed us with her new single ‘Hello’ (which is still no. 1 on the charts). From her NBC Live In New York special and announcement of her North American and European tour to her SNL performance, self impersonation skit, and chart shattering album, Adele has owned 2015.

DJ Khaled showed us his SnapChat is the key to our success. Take these into your 2016.

Drake, his secret album, diss tracks… & Serena?

If you have paid attention to media headlines in the last couple of months you have been witness to the never ending fascination that is Drake or the native from “the 6”. In the last couple of years after releasing his third album Nothing Was the Same he was able to stay under the radar but in the last couple of months there isn’t a headline that did not involve Drake being in the middle of the media firestorm. With his growing star status that train seems in no way of slowing down.

imagesFrom secretly releasing his mixtape that had album caliber If You Are Reading This its Too late to a feud with Diddy for stealing the instrumental from his hit single “0 to 100” or Meek Mill calling him out for having a ghostwriter (in music industry this is when a rapper has someone write their verses for them which is frowned upon since you are supposed to be raw and real) which led to some very interesting (and one very sad) diss tracks that only helped prove that Drake is a powerful lyricist and knows how to command an audience, giving us a song that has only risen in the charts.

The latest in Drake news involves him being rumored to be involved with none other the Wimbledon female tennis champion, Serena Williams.

Sunday night marked the long anticipated season five premiere of HBO’s Game of Thrones. Joe Dempsie plays Gendry, friend of Arya and illegitimate child of former king, Robert Baratheon. Joe, always the jokester, pretended not to know what was on TV Sunday night, and asked fans for suggestions on what to watch. Hopefully we’ll see more of Gendry this season!

This week on Lip Sync Battle it’s Anna Kendrick versus John Krasinski. These two actors are hilarious so it should be a great show. There’s a clip circulating of one of Anna’s performances. While singing One Direction’s “Steal My Girl,” Anna reveals she is wearing a t-shirt with a picture of her and Emily Blunt in a heart; Emily is John’s wife. The clip is absolutely hysterical and it looks like it will be an episode you can’t miss.
