Selena Gomez & The Weeknd Briefly Go Instagram Official, Caught Kissing During Romantic Italy Get Away

Selena-Gomez-Weeknd-Instagram

We’ve seen the paparazzi pics, but you know a celebrity relationship is never 100% real until its confirmed on social media. For a brief moment, Selena Gomez and The Weeknd were Instagram official.

Gomez and Weeknd (Abel Tesfaye) are currently vacationing in Italy. (They’ve only been together for like three weeks and they’re already jet setting across the world together?!) On Monday (Jan. 30), while riding a boat through the canals in Venice, Gomez posted a short video of her beau on Instagram.

She deleted the video shortly thereafter. So, was the post a mistake? Don’t count on it because her simple caption said all we need to know. Instead of words or hashtags, Gomez opted to express herself with a heart eyes emoji.

The two were spotted in Florence on Friday (Jan. 27) admiring Michelangelo’s statue of David. They were also caught kissing later that night during a dinner date.

A source tells E! News:

“Selena was very sweet and very loving. She would caress his face and kiss him often. He makes her laugh and she was completely focused on him. It was like no one else existed, just the two of them. They were completely immersed in one another.”

It was originally thought the two were just “having fun,” but it seems the relationship is quickly becoming serious. However, the source says the couple has refrained from placing any labels on their relationship.

“Their romance is moving quickly, but they are OK with that. They are exclusively dating each other. Selena is not one to date around, and when she cares and opens up to a man, she makes sure it’s the real thing.

They are just dating. Abel is taking it slow but respects Selena and wants to see where this may go. They haven’t called each other boyfriend or girlfriend yet, but they are exclusively just with each other. They are both very smitten about each other.

Abel is extremely romantic, and their time in Italy was perfect. They are enjoying getting to explore each other’s worlds.”

Though Gomez and The Weeknd seem to be in good place, their exes, not so much. According to the Mirror, two sources revealed Bella Hadid is wary of Gomez and is upset her former boyfriend of 18-months has already found someone else.

“Bella has reached out to Abel a few times and told him Selena is using him. He thinks she’s just jealous and isn’t listening to her.”

Source #2
“Bella and Abel’s split wasn’t dramatic, but of course she’s hurt and pissed that he’s moved on so quickly with Selena.”

Gomez and Hadid also have the same circle of friends, with Gomez and Hadid’s older sister Gigi Hadid part of Taylor Swift’s “squad.” However, a Mirror source says Gomez and Gigi are more acquaintances than friends.

“Selena is not good friends with either Gigi or Bella. She knows them through other people, but they are just acquaintances. She is friendly with them, but not friends with them … Selena and Gigi were never fond of each other, so Selena definitely doesn’t have any stipulations about hooking up with or dating Bella’s ex.”

Meanwhile, Justin Bieber (Gomez’s ex) recently told a TMZ cameraman that he can’t listen to Weeknd’s “wack” music.

“Hell no, I can’t listen to a Weeknd song. That s–t’s wack.”

Speculation Gomez and Tesfaye were dating began in early January when the two were caught kissing on a date in Santa Monica. They met in 2015 when they both performed at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, a show Tesfaye’s then-girlfriend Bella walked in. A Mirror source says there were “sparks” then.

Twitter Has Nothing But Jokes After Kodak Black & Tyga Debut Interesting New Haircuts

Kodak-Black-Tyga-Haircuts

It’s time for another internet debate. This time, it’s not about what color is this or what is that. The latest internet debate is actually “Which rapper has the worst haircut?” Tyga and Kodak Black both got fresh haircuts recently that have baffled social media.

Kodak chopped off all of most of his signature “Kodak knots.” However, he strangely decided to leave just one of his knots in the back. The front of the cut looks like a regular fade that many compared it to the “Boosie fade.” However, the Florida rapper quickly shot that down on Instagram.

“This Ain’t A Boosie Fade Fuck Ni**a This A #KodakFade #Trendsetter I Keep Something New Going On … I Cut The #KodakKnots”

He also showed off his new ‘do to his fans during a recent performance.

Just days prior to Kodak’s lone knot making a statement, Tyga debuted some mess. The back of the rapper’s head looks like he was attacked by a wild animal. But according to him, the new the cut is supposed to resemble an animal; he has referred to the style as “tiger stripes.”

Both horrible haircuts caught Twitter’s attention and they had nothing nice to say, just jokes.

I guess I can give Kodak and Tyga kudos for being unique and taking fashion risks… actually I can’t. I don’t think there is a right or wrong answer to this Twitter debate. Both cuts are ridiculous and both rappers should wear hats for a few weeks… or find a talented barber willing to fix that mess.

Kirk Franklin Opposes Trump’s “Muslim Ban” & Epically Shuts Down Twitter Troll in the Name of Jesus

Kirk-Franklin-Troll

Gospel singer Kirk Franklin may be a man of God, but one twitter troll learned very quickly that he is not the one to try.

President Donald Trump’s illegal executive order banning people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States caused uproar and sparked protests across the nation. Many expressed their thoughts on social media, including celebrities.

Although Christian, Franklin took to his own Twitter account on Saturday (Jan. 28) to stand up for his Muslim brothers and sisters.

A Trump troll felt some sort of way regarding Franklin’s compassion towards people of another faith and left an ominous comment about the singer’s daughter.


Franklin gave a brilliant comeback – in Jesus’ name, of course!

So yea, I dare anyone to run up in Kirk Franklin’s house. Social media approved of Franklin’s epic clapback as well.

After his posts went viral, Franklin returned to Twitter Sunday (Jan. 29) to further explain why he defended another religion and called those of the Muslim faith his “brother.”

Franklin has been outspoken in the past and typically supports inclusiveness. It’s great that he would use his platform to advocate for people who are of a different religion than or those that may share different beliefs/opinions.

Though he is all about love and Jesus, don’t get it twisted. The moral of the story is don’t underestimate Kirk Franklin; he doesn’t play any games.

Twitter Continues to Drag Uber after CEO Travis Kalanick Snitches on Other Business Leaders Who Support Trump

Travis-Kalanick-Uber-CEO-Snitch

Social media is not playing games with Uber. Just days after the #DeleteUber campaign became a trending topic, social media is now coming for Uber CEO Travis Kalanick for dry snitching on other well-known CEOs who are serving on an advisory board for Donald Trump’s administration.

The company faced a PR nightmare after it seemingly tried to profit from the New York City taxi drivers’ strike at JFK Airport in protest to President Trump’s travel ban executive order. Uber ignored the strike and continued to offer services, even turning off its surge pricing to lower costs of a ride. This sparked the #DeleteUber hashtag.

In addition, Kalanick also serves on a business/economic advisory board for the Trump administration, along with other business leaders. The board is known as the Strategic and Policy Forum.

In response to the backlash, Kalanick issued a statement and defended his relationship with Trump. Apparently tired of being the only one taking the heat, he also revealed the names of several other CEOs serving on the board too.

We partner around the world optimistically in the belief that by speaking up and engaging we can make a difference. Our experience is that not doing so shortchanges cities and the people who live in them. This is why I agreed in early December to join President Trump’s economic advisory group along with Elon Musk (CEO of Tesla), Mary Barra (Chairwoman/CEO of General Motors), Indra Nooyi (Chairwoman/CEO of Pepsi), Ginni Rometty (Chairwoman/CEO of IBM), Bob Iger (Chairman/CEO of Disney), Jack Welch (former Chairman of GE) and a dozen other business leaders.

Twitter did not care for Kalanick’s snitching and definitely let it be known.

Kalanick’s statement also informed customers and employees Uber plans to provide legal support for drivers, compensate loss of earnings, and create a $3 million defense fund for drivers affected by the travel ban.

He has also since joined hundreds of other CEOs and tech leaders opposing the “Muslim ban” and signed a petition urging Trump to rescind the executive order.

All good efforts, however, I think the damage is already done and it seems Twitter really does not like snitches.

Le’Veon Bell Goes in on Skip Bayless in New Diss Track “Shrimp Bayless”

shrimp bayless

There are some sports commentators that people just love to hate. Stephen A. Smith, Charles Barkley, Colin Cowherd (top of my list). The people who sit comfortably in a studio, makeup plastered across their face, and just go in on any and every athlete in a demonstrably contentious fashion. Well one such person just got called out in the best of ways.

Skip Bayless, who now has his own show Undisputed to talk trash to anyone and everyone he can find, has had a few choice words for Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell. And as it turns out, Bell (one of, in not the, greatest running backs in the game) didn’t take too kindly to the armchair quarterback’s criticism.

And so Bell, who also goes by the rap name “Juice,” decided to clap back at Bayless in a newly released diss track tearing into the annoying talk show personality.

“Shrimp Bayless, I been hearing you lately. You love Jerry way too much you actin like y’all related. I got the Hall of Fame waiting, I’m the best and you hate it. I don’t know why you hate it. I don’t know why you hate me. Probably cause my name is mentioned close with some of the greatest. And then they talk about patience, you close to testing my patience. You say whatever for ratings.”

Now, this isn’t Bell’s first venture into rapping. In fact, Juice recorded his first track when he was just 13-years-old. And while his future in the NFL is not in jeopardy, Bell told XXL, “I just didn’t want to limit myself to being on the field. Making music is something I’ve always wanted to do. I guess I kind of went public with everything.”

In fact, you can check out his EP Until the Post Interview right now on XXL. If this track is any indication, though, homeboy might actually have a career outside of football when the time does come.

But the real question is, who’s better? Juice, or NBA star Damian Lillard’s Dame D.O.L.L.A?

WATCH: Marshawn Lynch Hilariously Hypes the Super Bowl in Houston, Scotland

marshawn-lynch-scotland-houston-bagpipes

When Marshawn Lynch decided to retire at the end of last season, many people (myself included) greeted the news with a sense of surprise. He was healthy, still one of the best backs in the league, and just one year prior was one bad play call away from a Super Bowl title. And yet, he did retire, stepping away from the game but not out of the limelight.

Turns out, Lynch is a hilarious man and has found a way to live his post-retirement life still entertaining the masses, although now in a much different manner. There was his cameo appearance on FX’s fantasy football series The League, he and Gronk battled Conan O’brien to the death in the Clueless Gamer series, and now, he’s taken his talents abroad as he went to Scotland to spread the word about the upcoming Super Bowl matchup between the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons.

And his journey across the pond is just as entertaining and hilarious as his other post-NFL appearances. Super Bowl LI (51, for anyone not from the Roman Empire) is taking place in Houston, Texas next Sunday (Feb. 5), so it only makes sense that Lynch would travel to Houston to hype the big game. Houston, Scotland, that is.

In the hilarious 3-minute video (below), Lynch is seen talking to locals about the upcoming game, learning a bit more about Scottish culture (never does rock the kilt, though), and handing out an exorbitant amount of his go-to snack, Skittles. Watch for yourself.

As much as every rumor of a Lynch return to the NFL excites me, I’m loving his life post-football. And if he keeps entertaining in this kind of hilarious fashion, I’m A-OK with him cutting his NFL career short.

Azealia Banks Meets Her Match, Gets Into Instagram Beef With Rihanna Over Donald Trump’s Controversial “Muslim Ban”

Azealia-Banks-Rhianna-Beef

Every other week Azealia Banks decides it’s a good idea to make a completely insane statement or slam another celebrity. Well she finally met her match after she went after Rihanna, and you know “bad girl” RiRi is never too busy to be a little petty.

Like many Americans and celebs, Rihanna spoke out against President Donald Trump’s executive order which banned people from seven (predominantly Muslim) countries from entering the United States. The order has been labeled a “Muslim ban,” which is unconstitutional.

Banks, a Trump supporter, immediately responded to Rihanna’s post on Instagram and defended the ban and Trump. She wrote in part:

The ban on Muslims is a precautionary measure. As far as Rihanna (who isn’t a citizen, and can’t vote) and all the rest of the celebrities who are using their influence to stir the public, you lot really REALLY need to shut up and sit down. Stop chastising the president.

This started a back and forth between the two, with Rihanna posting memes and alluding to Banks’ alleged chicken sacrifices and Banks continuing to rant. They even posted each other’s phone numbers, which have now been disconnected.

Of course, most of Banks’ post have since been deleted. But just give her a few weeks (or days) and she will go off on anther Instagram rant or target another celebrity because the rapper can’t get any attention through with her music. It probably just won’t be Rihanna.
