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.

Kanye For President 2020

Kanye West announced that he plans to run for President in 2020 while accepting the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at this year's MTV VMAs.
Kanye West announced that he plans to run for President in 2020 while accepting the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at this year’s MTV VMAs.

The greatest announcement of all time, of all time. This Sunday’s MTV VMAS were filled with some shocking moments, from Nicki calling out Miley, to Justin Bieber sobbing on stage. However, the most shocking moment of all might have been when Kanye West announced his candidacy for president in 2020.

Kanye took the stage to accept the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award during the show. The award is one of the biggest honors of the night. Last year, it was presented to Justin Timberlake who then performed and even reunited NSYNC on stage for the occasion (one of my favorite MTV moments ever). However, producers for the show were not even sure what Kanye was planning to do until he did it.

Kanye allegedly kept changing his mind about the night. Originally, he was going to perform, then he was not going to even show up to the show, then he was showing up but no one knew if he was performing. What the producers did know was that Taylor Swift would be presenting the award. This marked a momentous occasion because it was on that very stage six years ago that Kanye infamously interrupted Taylor to announce that Beyonce “had the best music video of all time”. This was an event that Taylor referenced and poked fun of during her speech, even quoting his famous “I’m really happy for you and Imma let you finish” line.

It was then that Kanye took the stage and waited listening to the audience applaud him for an uncomfortably long time. It seemed as though he might perform, but instead he launched into one of the most rambling and confusing speeches of all time. He started with what appeared to be an apology to Taylor for his behavior six years ago and quickly got off on a tangent that included fresh juice, his hatred for award shows and his daughter. He even admitted that he smoked weed before taking the stage, “Y’all might be thinking right now, ‘I wonder did he smoke something before he came out here?’ And the answer is yes, I rolled up a little something, I knocked the edge off,” said West.

However, the most shocking part of his speech came at the end, when he announced his plans to run for president. “As you probably could’ve guessed by this moment, I have decided, in 2020, to run for president,” said West. This announcement elicited a shocked response from the entire audience, including Swift who was standing with Kim Kardashian and her family. In fact, the whole family looked pretty surprised and started to laugh. Kylie Jenner’s boyfriend, Tyga, even gave Kanye a high five as he exited the stage. It remains to be seen whether Kanye was just joking (as I suspect) or was actually serious about running.

Do you think Kanye would make a good president? What was your favorite moment from the VMAs? Let us know in the comments below or on Twitter using #GlamorousPaper.

It seems to be the new trend for promoting music is to have as many of your celebrity friends get involved. After weeks of #WhatDoYouMean Justin Bieber has finally released his first single in three years and it will for sure make you groove in your seat.

The 21-year-old singer was Hollywood’s bad boy until his roast came earlier this year and he gave a sincere apology to his fans and anyone he has hurt. Since then Bieber has been keeping his head focused on the music and teamed up with Diplo and Skrillex to put out “Where are Ü Now” which has been nominated for Song of the Summer at the MTV Video Music Awards. Justin is really working to turn things around and really get back to the music. His single “What Do You Mean” is definitely a step in the right direction.
