"Excuse me Mr Mayor...um, Mr 2 Chainz, sir..." I can't even imagine, but I guess I should try since it very well could happen. Yes, Rapper 2 Chainz is serious about running for Mayor of his hometown of College Park, Georgia. He was quoted stating that he plans on running the end of the year or next year and that he's just waiting to see if he fits the qualifications. I mean, with a hit single like "I luv dem Strippers," how could HE not qualify? Politicians love strippers, don't they? Or was it escorts?
Though, the political game did work for Clay Aiken, at least sort of when he won the primary in North Carolina but then lost overall in the general election in 2014. And who could forget the Terminator himself, Arnold Schwarzenneger and his run at "Govah-nah of Calli-forn-eeaa."
All this talk of celebrities taking over political positions, I'm starting to think John Gray should run for the Mayor of Troy...Never say never.
As an animal lover, I witnessed the outrage all over social media yesterday about the Go Daddy! Superbowl commercial involving a Golden Retriever puppy. I figured it must be horrible if there is so much anger over it that I didn't watch until this morning when I heard the ad had been pulled.
After watching it, I get the outrage. I'll be honest in saying those crying "animal cruelty" are a little ridiculous - it's a commercial, not real life. The puppy was most likely on a closed set with more than a handful of people surrounding him for his safety. The overall message of the ad though, that's what struck me.
First of all, it's not funny. Go Daddy! is known for silly ads. This just toyed with selling a dog online, which many people are against in the first place considering how many are looking to be adopted from shelters all over the world. And I think that's what sparked my disgust. As someone who does sell on eBay and other various sites, there are so many other things to sell other than living, loving animals.
Am I overracting? How does it make you feel?
Taylor Swift has been HACKED! No, not by me. I'm nowhere near smart enough to pull something like that off, puh-lease. Instead, someone with greater intelligence and far too much free time has hacked all of her social media accounts asking followers to check out certain 'handles' on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. The Lizzard Squad is taking responsibility for the hacking and are bragging they are the cause of the Facebook and Instagram "outage" from yesterday. Uh, congratulations?
They've also threated to release nude photos of Taylor Swift...though, um...how'd ya get those? I'm sure they're not connected to her social media...were they able to also hack her cell phone or computer through said websites? Do these pictures even REALLY exist?
Taylor has utilized her Tumblr account to let fans know that yes, she was hacked. What else has she said about it? Well, not much. But only time will tell if she shook off all her clothes and snapped a selfie.
Kelly Clarkson took a little bit of a break and when you look at it, it really was just a LITTLE bit of a break. She got off her tour, recorded a Christmas album, got married, knocked up and had said baby, somewhere in between there recorded a new album and BAM! The new single is already sky rocketing on the charts worldwide, called "Heartbeat Song."
The news today is that her brand new album, "Piece by Piece" will be available in stores and via download March 3rd. It's the follow up to 2011's smash, "Stronger" which took her on multiple tours with The Fray and Maroon 5 over the course of a couple years. So, what will "Piece by PIece" bring? This March, we find out!
