Celine Dion performed ‘My Heart Will Go On’ at the Billboard Awards and the internet cried an ocean of tears

TwitterFacebook

Few songs stick to film’s as firmly as Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” to the 1997 Academy Award-winning Titanic.

In honor of the film’s 20th anniversary, Dion took the stage at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards Sunday night in Las Vegas to belt out her iconic hit.

After an introduction from Lea Michele, Dion appeared inside a massive floor-to-ceiling chandelier in a bright white dress while clips of Titanic played on the screen.

Christian Louboutin recently revealed that he never allows for his shoes to be pulled out or borrowed for shoots nor shows. You have to pay for them every time.

Microsoft Research shows off its augmented reality glasses

TwitterFacebook

Because we’re spoiled and don’t appreciate amazing technology unless it’s immediately convenient, some tech pundits are dismissing VR in favor of AR, but the fact is that we’re still years away from easy to use AR glasses. For now, mainstream AR is limited to your smartphone, like most other apps. 

However, a team at Microsoft Research is looking to speed up the progress on wearable AR devices and have introduced a prototype as proof. 

Before Snap can turn its Spectacles wearable camera into a vehicle for its augmented reality app filters, Microsoft’s team presented a pair of glasses on Friday that use near-eye displays to produce holograms to the wearer.  Read more…

Anderson Cooper DGAF, literally talks about Trump taking a dump on his desk

TwitterFacebook

We’ve all marveled at Anderson Cooper’s brutal eye roll. But now he’s slinging some serious … well, you’ll see. 

On Friday, the Coop was talking with conservative commentator Jeffrey Lord. The topic, naturally, was the news that Donald Trump told Russian officials at the Oval Office that firing that “nut job” James Comey took pressure off the FBI’s investigation. 

“I don’t care what he says to the Russians. I mean, he’s the president of the United States,” Lord said. 

Then Cooper responded with this:

Yes, he said, “If he took a dump on his desk, you would defend it.” Read more…

Police release cringeworthy video telling kids not to buy drugs

TwitterFacebook

We’re not sure what’s in the water Down Under, but Australian police like to try and outdo each other by having the country’s weirdest social media presence.

While you might have seen the Nickelback-hating work of the Queensland Police, Northern Territory Police is here to throw its hat in the ring with an ’80s-style safety video for the upcoming Darwin festival, Bass In The Grass.

It’s chockful of VHS-esque filters, throwback graphics, and of course, really, really bad acting. The video is definitely cringeworthy, but we think they were totally going for that.  Read more…

Luxury House Apologizes for Designer Boomerang, But Is Unclear About What They’ll Do About It

Chanel has come under fire for selling a $1,325 boomerang carrying the brand’s distinct double C symbol and smooth black finish.

Bill Gates’ wise tweetstorm will inspire new grads

TwitterFacebook

Personal advice from one of the biggest business icons in all of tech history is difficult to come by, but Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates is making it easy for newly minted college graduates via Twitter. 

On Monday, just a week before the graduation ceremonies at Harvard, the school he famously dropped out of to create Microsoft, Gates offered his pearls of wisdom to new college graduates around the country. 

Beginning with a reference to the classic film The Graduate about giving market trend advice to newbies (plastics!), Gates launches into his tweetstorm by first noting the areas he thinks we should be focused on in the coming years.    Read more…

NBCUniversal is buying an arts and crafts tutorial site

TwitterFacebook

NBCUniversal is getting into arts and crafts.

The media conglomerate said this week that it’s buying Craftsy, a DIY tutorial and art supply site, in what Recode reported to be a $230 million deal.

The Denver-based startup merges media and e-commerce with paywalled courses on everything from watercolor painting to “mastering the art of the pizza,” as well as a catalog of crafting kits.

NBC plans to tap Craftsy’s contributing instructors to appear on various shows across the company’s cable and broadcast channels like Bravo’s Top Chef and SyFy’s Face Off. The startup will also use its own production studio to create content for the network. Read more…

Some dude wearing an Australian flag jumped onstage at Eurovision and mooned everyone

TwitterFacebook

Eurovision fans often complain that Australia shouldn’t be included in the contest — after all, it’s not a European country. And now … the critics have quite a bit more fuel for their fire. Or, alternatively, a reason to include the Aussies forever and ever after a stunt on the show’s finale.

Here’s what went down (under). While last year’s winner, Jamala, was performing her number, an enthusiastic man wearing an Australian flag somehow got himself onto the stage. He then proceeded to moon everyone. Fun!

And the internet, predictably, went wild. (Worth noting: many people watching Eurovision had been drinking for a while at this point.) Read more…

Michelle Obama expertly blasts Trump without even mentioning his name

TwitterFacebook

Former first lady Michelle Obama was back on stage doing what she’s known to do: talking about childhood obesity and making Americans healthier. But this talk had some bite to it.

Naturally, the recent decision by Donald Trump’s administration to not push forward with federal rules to make school lunches healthier — something Obama championed for hard with her “Let’s Move” initiative during her eight years in the White House — was brought up.

Obama had some tough words at the Partnership for Healthier America Summit in Washington, D.C. Friday. Without mentioning Trump by name or singling out the U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue who announced his plan to “make school lunches great again” earlier this month, Obama made her very clear what she thought of the president and his administration’s move.
