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!
"Who hurt you, Harry?" asks Meghan Trainor to the One Direction star. It turns out the two recently teamed up for a duet about breaking up and eventually, down the line getting back together again called "Someday, Maybe"
Meghan Trainor happens to be the hottest name in the music industry at the moment; hit single after hit single and writing credits galore (she even wrote "Sledgehammer" for Fifrth Harmony.) Her most recent team up happens to be with One Directions break out star, Harry Styles. Trainor, 21 and Stlyes 20 seem to be naturals writing about breakup at their young ages. Meghan has said that one of her ex's had told her that if he ever heard her music he would change the station. Well, he must be listening to static at this point because the girl and her "bass" are everywhere.
