Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir watch a montage of themselves, and it’s too much

TwitterFacebook

With sultry routines that’ve long threatened to melt the ice, people can’t help but egg on figure skaters Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir to requite their apparent love.

Following their Winter Olympics gold medal win, Virtue and Moir sat down with CBC to watch a montage of their 20-year career together on the ice. 

The pair shed tears as grabs of them talking about how proud they were of one another and images — so many images — of them embracing each other played out on screen.

C’mon and just date each other already, you guys.

It’s not just us either — Adam Rippon and Leslie Jones thought so too. When asked about what’s the deal with their relationship by TODAY’s Hoda Kotb, Virtue gave a rather diplomatic answer to the prodding. Read more…

Questionable ICOs have left many investors with Exit Wounds, but that hasn’t stopped Steven Seagal from backing one.

The ’90s action star became the worldwide ambassador of a cryptocurrency called Bitcoiin 2nd Generation, news that he confirmed on his Twitter account.

If the double “i” in the name didn’t prompt reluctance, there’s a couple of worrying signs regarding Bitcoiin2Gen.

As noted by Coindesk, the website for Bitcoiin2Gen lists no details about who’s actually behind the cryptocurrency. Its domain was originally registered in 2015 in Panama, but changed hands around Jan. 8.  Read more…

Fergie performed a jazzy rendition of the national anthem. It did not go well.

TwitterFacebook

Alright, where do you even start with a performance like this.

Pop star and Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie opened the NBA All-Star game with her rendition of the national anthem, and by goodness, it was an interesting rendition to say the least.

While other singers may have opted for a straight-up, no fuss performance; Fergie gave the anthem a jazzy twist, which is incredible in both its braveness and repugnance for the ear. 

There’s no saving jazz this time, folks.

Throughout the performance, Fergie wildly shifts between different keys for some reason.  Read more…

Colorado Girl Scouts can sell their cookies in front of marijuana dispensaries now

TwitterFacebook

There’s good news for Colorado residents prone to munchies: as of Friday, you only need to make one stop to get both Girl Scout Cookies and weed. 

Girl Scouts of Colorado updated its cookie sales policy to allow Girl Scouts to sell their boxes outside of cannabis dispensaries. 

This is a change of heart for the organization, which previously banned setting up cookie booths in front of dispensaries. In a deleted tweet from 2014, its Colorado council stated, “If you are wondering, we don’t allow our Girl Scouts to sell cookies in front of marijuana shops or liquor stores/bars.”  Read more…

New Zealand’s prime minister looks like the lead of a crime show in her Vogue shoot

TwitterFacebook

It’s somewhat rare for New Zealand politicians to attract global attention, but Jacinda Ardern’s star continues to rise.

The current New Zealand Prime Minister is featured in the March issue of Vogue, where she’s been labelled the “anti-Trump,” admired for the way she speaks about poverty and homelessness with a “blend of Bernie Sanders’s bluntness and Elizabeth Warren’s fearlessness.”

But of course, being Vogue, there was plenty of attention dedicated to Ardern’s photoshoot. Clarke Gayford, Ardern’s partner, made the photo his wallpaper.

TwitterFacebook

Sleeping with a co-worker is pretty much a no-no in all workplaces, especially so in the sensitive world of politics.

Not that Australia’s deputy prime minister stuck to the unspoken rule.

TwitterFacebook

For most of us, a wedding day is something to look forward to. To plan and prepare. Or something to look back with fond memories of a choice once made.
