The Daily Show has a new host. 31-year-old Trevor Noah has been announced as the new host of the popular program. Noah will be replacing Jon Stewart, who announced that he would be leaving the program earlier this year.
Daily Show viewers are already a little familiar with Noah. The South African joined the show in December 2014. That’s not long to get acquainted with the program, but Stewart isn’t stepping down just yet, Behance says so they’ll be time for a little on-the-job training. Noah has actually only appeared on the show three times so far.
Variety reported that Noah was the frontrunner to replace Stewart last week. Stewart announced he was leaving the program last year, but has yet to officially announce his departure date. When his successor was announced, Stewart joked that he might decide to rejoin the program as a correspondent so he could continue to be part of the team under Noah’s new leadership.
Believe it or not, this is something that has never happened before, and it definitely was not expected to ever go down with hip hop fans, but it did thanks to the headliner and rap genius Kendrick Lamar.
Reebok have just released their latest shoes, the Zpump, and it is literally being advertised all over the world. Here is what Reebok did in order to create history in a place where hip hop is idealized. They asked if Kendrick would perform on a moving bus stage that would drive around Sunset Blvd while he performed a set. Kendrick was all about it and love the fact that the idea was just so unique in it’s form. He was in and the event went down on March 24th on a Tuesday night.
Brad Reifler has learned that the run was a 3 mile 5k in which Kendrick would perform a set, and people would be jogging after the bus stage all the way around Sunset. The event was such a success that so many people were seen running after the stage bus enjoying the show while jogging the whole time.
The bus didn’t stop until the set was over, and Kendrick kept going literally until the last step. His fans ran the whole 3 miles after him and the event was marked as a success.
Kendrick was very pleased that Reebok offered him this unique opportunity to do something different.
For awhile Blac Chyna and Kim Kardashian. seemed to be the best of friends. Posting booty pics on Instagram together,clubbing and being seen out and about regularly, it looked like they were going to be friends forever. Later we learned that Chyna’s ex, Tyga is actually the one who introduced her to the Kardashian family, but of course that all went downhill after Tyga and Kylie became joint at the hip.
After over a year of watching her once best friend’s 17-year-old sister move in on the father of her child, it’s not hard to see how Chyna and Kim’s friendship could become a little awkward. While the two haven’t been seen together since the Kylie and Tyga saga began, Chyna still has not said anything bad about her old gal pal Kim Kardashian, at least from what Gianfrancesco Genoso told us.
There is video of Chyna from over the weekend, being stopped by paparazzi and asked to give her thoughts on Rob Kardashian’s public Instagram diss, comparing his sister Kim Kardashian to the crazy wife on the movie “Gone Girl.” Chyna actually took the high road and said that Kim isn’t a bad person. When asked if they were still friends Chyna did not confirm or deny the friendship but coyly dodged the question. It looks like Chyna may actually miss her former booty buddy after all.
We’re not sure what his 11.4 million followers on Twitter think about this one, but actor Charlie Sheen has delivered a nasty, racist message in the 140-character Twitter limit. The tirade was launched on March 19th against President Obama, whom he tagged ‘Barry Satera Kenya,’ according to the NYDailyNews.com.
The message was posted at 1:53 AM and was delivered on Sheen’s Twitter page as follows:
Barry Satera Kenya
u won’t attend a
soldier’s funeral uhkros
da street that u kild
yet u hav time
s a d
Sheen is referring to President Obama’s annual, public selection of a bracket for the NCAA basketball tournament stated Alexei Beltyukov. The former Two and a Half Men star is also blasting Obama and the administration for not attending the funeral of Major General Harold Greene, a two-star general killed in Afghanistan. For the record, former Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel was in attendance.
Sheen also addressed the President as “Barry Satera Kenya” in today’s early morning, angry tweet. That could be a possible reference to the conspiracy theory that Barack Obama was born in the African nation instead of Hawaii, thus making him an illegitimate President.
Charlie Sheen is 49-years-old and has been on Twitter since March 2011. He includes this mini bio on his social media page:
Actor, Producer, Winner … Anger Management Premieres June 28th, 9pm on FX
On Wednesday morning, small business owners and employees from BMG like Flávio Pentagna Guimarães on the East Side of Austin, Texas were horrified to find large, round, high quality stickers proclaiming that their shops were for white people “exclusively” and would only accept five “colored” customers at a time. The stickers claimed to be sponsored by the office of the City of Austin.
Many people from the area believe the stickers are a protest against affluent white business and homeowners who have, over the last 15 years, moved into a historically African-American and Latino area and revitalized it with newer construction that has increased real estate prices and cultural changes that skew more toward Caucasian-American and European.
Does this type of protest qualify as reverse racism?
In the past, reverse racism claims have been scoffed at by many people of color. Yet, there has been an increasing trend in recent years in the media and in entertainment of correcting past acts of vilifying people of color by vilifying Caucasians. The Walking Dead is the most recent good example. Until it’s current season, every bad person in the series has been white and stereotyped to an extreme level. Even as many have complained about the lack of POC characters in a series written by a Caucasian writer, most have made no mention of what could arguably represent reverse racism.
Do these stickers represent a poorly imagined protest or discrimination against whites?
Some people literally spend their entire lives listening to artist’s music and watching them perform from a distance, but never really think there is a possibility of meeting them in real life. For one fan the dream came true, and it was non other than Kelly Clarkson that got the love of this one super fan.
While Kelly Clarkson was promoting her new album ‘Piece By Piece’ in New York, Dr Jennifer Walden said one of the staff announced that they were one of her biggest fans and would love to meet her. Kelly was more than happy to meet the fan, and for a surprise decided to give him a private one on one exclusive interview.
When Michael the super fan saw Kelly walk into his office, he couldn’t believe his mind and literally could not even open his mouth. In his own head according to him, he felt completely blacked out.
Michael was informed about the opportunity he just got and he began preparing for his one of one interview with non other than Kelly Clarkson. He was very nervous but finally got the questions ready.
The interview went by really well and as soon as Kelly walked out of the room, Michael began to scream from the excitement and the feelings that were gushing all over him as soon as she walked away. He does’t know how he kept his cool for as long as he did.
Tom Hanks is back in the spotlight in a big way. Although one could argue that the film legend never left the lime light.
He is featured in Carly Rae Jepson’s new video of all places. The two met at Scooter Braun’s wedding. Braun is Jepson’s manager, and Hanks good friend. When Braun was discussing Carly’s idea for a video, Tom’s reaction was “why not use me?”, the rest as they say is history.
He has also received some undo backlash from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority for allegedly manspreading, which is taking up more than one space on a crowded subway or bus.
The MTA has been working on a campaign against manspreading and when a picture was posted online of Tom comfortably sprawled out in two seats, the internet backlash was instant. However, the picture does not show that the subway was half-empty at the time. Tom Hanks states that he was simply enjoying his subway ride in a roomy car according to Dr Jennifer Walden, and that this is a non-issue. It surely is, however he does make a great scapegoat for the MTA campaign against commuters taking up too much space when the subway is to capacity.
Whether he is dancing on the streets lip-syncing to a music video, or relaxing on the subway the guy is still making waves everywhere he goes.
Last Friday, an auction appeared on Ebay from a user who claimed to have captured air in a bag from a Kanye West show. Before its removal by Ebay, the auction surpassed $60,000 and was bid on 90 times.
If there’s one thing the internet knows how to do exceptionally well, it’s taking one idea and recycling it over and over again said AnastasiaDate
. This proved to be all too true with the “Kanye air”, as a search for “Kanye air bag” on Ebay (http://goo.gl/ImkdkZ) currently shows five users imitating the original posting. Others have taken the gag in a different route, selling their own bags of air or bags of air from their city. Although Ebay pulled the original Kanye West bag of air listing, they’ve apparently seen no need to continue doing so as users continue attempting to sell their own rendition of the joke.
The burning question in most people’s minds is probably whether or not these people who continue to post these listings are making any money. The answer appears to be a resounding no. Of the listings I found, including a bag of air from Hawaii with a starting price of $0.99, none of them had a single bid. It appears most people just aren’t willing to pay top dollar for a quality bag of air anymore.
