What People Are Talking About

I hope y'all like pop stars, Oprah, and boy bands, because that's where this post is going. You're welcome!

Pop Star Comebacks

As we mentioned earlier this week, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry have released new music to kick off their returns to the world of pop music. One of their singles, "Applause" and "Roar," will likely oust "Blurred Lines" singer Robin Thicke from the Billboard Hot 100 next week. Meanwhile, Justin Timberlake took to Instagram to release the entire track list for the second half of "The 20/20 Experience." Some of his new songs include "True Blood," "Cabaret," and "Murder." Justin Timberlake also announced some new fall dates for his tour. More Justin Timberlake = happy world.


Kid Scientist

Earlier this week, Beyonce and her 1-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, were spotted in Brooklyn. In case you were wondering, yes, Blue Ivy is as adorable as you’d imagine her to be. But she's also intelligent. Beyonce told Oprah that Blue Ivy was "very smart" and already reading flashcards.

With an R&B queen for a mom and a rap mogul for a dad, Blue Ivy will likely go on to do amazing things. Toss in the fact that she’s a 1-year-old that can read and she’ll probably take over the world. Is it weird to consider what a celebrity baby might someday grow up and do with her life? Probably. But oh well, here are some careers baby Blue Ivy might someday consider:

Rap/R&B Superstar

Obviously musical talent runs in the family, so she may want to dabble in the careers her mom and dad did. It’s not weird for kids to sometimes follow in their parents’ footsteps. If she’s lucky, her musical genius will come from both her mom and her dad, so not only would bring a room to tears with just her voice, but she could also rhyme circles around rappers in her generation. Like Kanye’s baby. Just kidding, they would totally collaborate, and then no one would ever be able to make music again because the pinnacle of music will have been reached.


OMG, Michelle Obama has bangs!? And other important things, like Oprah intimidating Lance Armstrong and a hilarious video of NFL players saying weird things.

NFL Bad Lip Reading

If you’ve never seen a Bad Lip Reading video, I highly recommend starting with this one. I’m not sure when it surfaced, but I’d heard some people mention it, and finally, last night, our co-worker Allison did us all a huge favor and passed the link around. (In “The Sports Guy” Tim’s defense, he’d seen it much earlier but didn't think we’d appreciate it. Fair enough.) Bad Lip Reading is exactly what it sounds like – each video’s original sound is eliminated. Then a group of people read each person’s lips and make up an entirely new dialogue, making it seem like Tom Brady is saying "Guys, I found Fido!" in the middle of the football field. It’s ridiculous, kind of stupid, and astonishingly hilarious.
