And now that the New Year has kicked in the door waving the four-four all you’ll hear for the next few weeks is “New Year, New Me!” I normally ignore people who say that because they’re full of shit and never really change. Well, this phrase is kinda true for Donald Trump‘s #1 Stan Kanye West, who within the first two days of the year has announced that he’s still very much a Trump supporter, and we’re also learning that he Kim Kardashian are about to inflict the world with another one of their spawns.
The Kanye West vs. Drake beef that never seems to end (ever) reminds me of the fancy sport cricket, or even better, the long play version of cricket called a test match. It’s an extended game that usually lasts five days or even longer if you’re an extremely unlucky spectator. It’s the athletic equivalent of watching paint dry, and not for anyone less than the die hard cricket fan. This rivalry is becoming the cricket test match of celebrity feuds, ie. it is so boring I forgot we were still supposed to be paying attention. But apparently we are, because Kanye is pissed at some old Drake news that’s had him throwing a tanty all over Twitter this morning. Someone call this feud off already so we can all go out for pitchers and slices!
Over the weekend, Meek Mill decided to treat his Twitter followers to a Q&A using the hashtag #AskMeek, where he discussed a multitude of topics. One such topic that fans wanted the answer to was how he felt about his ex Nicki Minaj‘s new boyfriend Kenneth Petty and Meek was very open. Honestly, at some points during the conversation, Meek was a little too open. Like mouth-on-the-booty open.
Ariana Grande released her newest single “Imagine” (which thankfully isn’t a John Lennon cover) from her upcoming fifth album and she probably should have waited until the feud between Kanye West and Drake died down first.
Taylor Swift might not have landed the title of the richest woman in music this year. Which was probably fine for little ol’ humble Taylor, who probably pulled some It’s A Wonderful Life corniness by hugging her cats and saying that friends are what make you truly rich. Now she has confirmation that she is rich in Twitter influence. Brandwatch has published a list of the most influential men and women on Twitter, and Taylor took the top spot.
Maybe they’ll do us all a favor and do away with the whole thing next?? Twitter is honestly a nightmare social media scenario of a slew of voices screaming at the same time as though each one is the most important – so kind of like any given Real Housewives reunion special. Naturally, I can’t live without it. People are especially drawn to Twitter since it’s where Donald Trump goes until the wee hours of the morning to hurl out his nonsense. Others just go for the nudes that gay porn stars post that Instagram would literally block their ass for posting. Or so I’ve heard.
Anyway, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has heard everyone’s griping about how his social media spawn is getting messier these days and ruining every family holiday, and he thinks removing the like button is going to class the place up a bit.
