Sunday Paper: December 13, 2015

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

The First Lady is not only dropping the mic, she is also dropping rhymes from the White House.

Earlier this week FLOTUS collaborated with Saturday Night Live’s Jay Pharoah to rap about the importance of going to college. The inspirational tune ‘Go To College’ is FLOTUS’ debut single that charted at number two then rose to number one on the Billboard + Twitter Trending 140.

The song is to help support FLOTUS’ ‘Better Make Room’ and ‘Reach Higher’ initiatives to promote the widespread of college-readiness and education completion for teens.

FLOTUS isn’t the only one dropping music from the White House. President Barack Obama charted at number two on the Billboard + Twitter Trending 140 with his feature on JX Cannon’s single ‘Pop Off’. Cannon’s single was inspired by Obama’s vicious one liner, ‘If folks want to pop off and have opinions about what they think they would do, present a specific plan.’ This line came as a rebuttal from Obama after being fed up with political leader’s xenophobia as a result to the Syrian refugee crisis.

The Grammy nominated singer took to Instagram on early Sunday morning and posted a message for his fans.

The post reads: “Hello all. I am taking a break from my phone, emails and all social media for a while, I’ve had such an amazing ride over the last 5 years but I find myself seeing the world through a screen and not my eyes so I’m taking this opportunity of me not having to be anywhere or do anything to travel the world and see everything I missed. To my family and friends, if you love me you will understand me buggering off for a bit, to my fans, the 3rd album is on its way and is the best thing I have made thus far. See you all next autumn, and thank you for being amazing. Ed X.”

No word has been said whether or not he will be attending this year’s 58th Grammy Awards. Sheeran’s song ‘Thinking Out Loud’ is nominated for Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year and Best Solo Performance.

“If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the past day, it’s that life is too short. I’m about to launch an album that finally represents who I truly am. How do I embrace this new chapter in my life? How do I really walk the walk? What does it mean to be confident? It means letting go, being authentic, saying I don’t give a fuck and this is who I am. I want to show the side of me that’s real, that’s liberated, that’s free. What if we do a photo shoot where it’s totally raw? Super-sexy, but no makeup, no fancy lighting, no retouching, and no clothing. Let’s do it here, let’s do it now,” Demi said to Vanity Fair photographer Patrick Ecclesine.

Sunday Paper: April 26, 2015

This week’s Sunday paper is jam packed with entertainment and pop culture news so let’s get started!

After the highly anticipated 20/20 Special with Diane Sawyer premiered this Friday, Bruce Jenner has finally confirmed the rumors of his transition into a woman. The interview started out with some casual conversation then Jenner jumps right into the heavy stuff head on. More than his words his body language showed that there was in fact two different lives he was living; who he was and who he actually is. Jenner, 65, unraveled his ponytail, straightened his posture and said, “For all intents and purposes, I am a woman.” She even went on to refer to herself as “him” or “Bruce” in the third person.

Like many viewers at home ours jaws all dropped. Jenner went into her past about never feeling comfortable with herself and even let out intimate details of cross-dressing while she would be on the road because that’s what felt more natural to her. Many wondered if Jenner always felt like a female, how did she manage to have three wives and six biological kids. Jenner confronted this topic head on saying that she was genuinely attracted to her wives and woman and to some extent they knew about her gender identity issues.

image

Both of Jenner’s first two wives put out heartfelt statements in regards to her transition and their support for her. Jenner’s most recent ex-wife Kris Jenner who appears on their reality show “Keeping up with the Kardashians” had “no comment” on the Jenner Special. Jenner has not been alone in her journey ,she admits that Kim Kardashian, her step-daughter, has been one of the most supportive in her transition thus far.

image

There was an explosion of overwhelming support on social media for Jenner in her bravery to tell her story. Jenner said she talked to transgender woman and activist Laverne Cox about her transition prior to her own and it gave her the support she needed to be visible. Jenner’s kids as well as other celebs spoke about tweeted about their support for her and the transgender community as a whole.

If you or someone you know is facing gender identity issues you can seek guidance and advice from TheTrevorProject.org or by calling their 24/7 toll free number 866-488-7386. There is also a texting option and online chat option on the website.

Last night was the White House Correspondent Dinner and the stars were definitely out. President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama looked dapper as usual as he sported a black and white tux and she wore a silver sequin dress with a new curly hairdo. The always charismatic Obama poked some fun at politicians and himself that caused a chuckle throughout the room.

image

Obama used ol’ Luther as his “anger translator” to say all of the things he wishes he could. Comedy sketch actor Keegan-Michael Key from the “Key & Peele” series helped out with the punch lines until Obama took the reigns himself which resulted in him telling the jokes. Luther intervened saying, “All due respect, sir, you don’t need an anger translator! You need counseling!”

image

There was tons of laughter and Obama poked some fun about himself getting older and gray while the First Lady “hasn’t aged a day.” Michelle Obama gave credit to “fresh fruits and vegetables.” for her youthful appearance. Obama added “it’s aggravating!” with a smile.

For all of you that are still heart broken over the “Fast and Furious 7” you can dry your eyes because a release date for an eighth movie has been revealed. Universal Studios announced earlier this week that Apr. 27, 2017 is when the new movie is expected to premier.

Before the announcement of the movie, fans got that chance to create their own movie posters for Furious 8 I hopes they will be used. The picture features Vin Diesel over the Empire State Building in New York City.

The official cast list has not yet been revealed but we can only hope that the fan favorites like Diesel, Ludacris, and Gibson will all be returning to the big screen and fast cars. The announce of another sequel doesn’t come as a huge surprise since the seventh movie broke the box office with $300 million dollars in sales.

image

“There have been talks about a sequel but nothing has been confirmed in terms of Furious 8, but I really feel like we need to let the fans decide wether there’s going to be a Furious 8 and we’ll work it from there. Right now we kind of need a moment of silence to reflect on this individual who started the franchise. So rest in peace, Paul Walker.” Ludacris said in an interview with E! News about a potential eighth movie.

Take a look back on this week’s top stories that made your Sunday Paper.

First, we got to see President Barack Obama on the Jimmy Kimmel show reading “Mean Tweets.” Celebrities usually read mean tweets from fans or lack there of and poke a little fun at themselves or swipe back at the users. This week President Obama took to twitter to read some of the tweets he received and handled the sly remarks like a champ.   This will definitely give you a good laugh! You can watch the video here:

The First Lady Michelle Obama wasn’t short stopping with entertaining the country on the “Ellen Show.” Michelle Obama introduced her #GimmeFive challenge which encourages people to show five ways they are leading a healthy lifestyle.

Michelle Obama included that the cast of “So You Think You Can Dance” will be teaching a dance to Mark Ransom and Bruno Mars hit “Uptown Funk” on the south lawn of the White House. After back and forth smack talk between the First Lady and Ellen about their previous push-up contest, the First Lady challenged Ellen to a dance off and what happened next was history.

If you’re not in stitches after the first two videos you are sure to be after hearing about what a Youtuber did for a little fun. Aimee Davison who is on the Youtube Channel “Sexperimental LOLPervs” decided to replicate the mentos and diet coke experiment. The channel is known for taking normal experiments and sexualizing them to some degree. Davison hot glued mentos on to her bra and underwear and filled her bathtub with 40 dollars worth of diet coke.
