The good, the bad, the old and maybe the not so new. 'Twas Trending has the social review from last week, just for you.


Baby Levine's arrival


Let's start with some good news. Superstar Adam Levine and his wife, Behati Prinsloo, welcomed their new bundle of joy last week, and while many took to social media to congratulate and celebrate, we can't help but wonder: Dusty Rose Levine? Dusty though? For a girl? With a show of hands, who will stick to calling their baby Rose?


Brangelina split


Brangelina: Here was a split nobody saw coming! Or did they? The jury is still out on that based on the mixed reviews after it was revealed that actress Angelina Jolie filed for a divorce from fellow actor Brad Pitt. The reason for the split? Still unknown. But there have allegedly been speculations of alcoholism and child abuse on the part of Pitt, with Jolie requesting sole custody of the children, and giving Pitt supervised visitation rights, for the health of her family. My, what a tangled web we weave when at first we learn to ... you know the rest. They will go down in history as the first to coin their very own coupled name. We will miss Brangelina. Messy divorce: hefty sum. Alimony: big bucks. New homes: pretty pent. All the memes trending with the so-called views of Pitt's ex, Jennifer Aniston: priceless.


Dominic James' untimely passing


Last week, depression rocked our nation when we learned that student and captain of the St George's football team, Dominic James, passed away. Many watched in horror as just five minutes into the Manning Cup game between their school and Excelsior High, James collapsed and was rushed to hospital where he was subsequently pronounced dead. Tears filled the field as teammates and opponents learned of James' untimely passing, while an outpouring of condolences from just about everyone followed in quick pursuit. James was said to be a star athlete and a wonderful scholar, filled with promise of a bright future. May his soul rest in peace.


Breezy spotlight


Rumours circulated last week of a new flame igniting between Chris Brown and a new mystery chick. The two were seen smiling as they shared a photo together at a game. But all that's on everyone's mind is, who is she? Her name: Cydney. Her claim to fame: apparently, she's a model who just happened to have had a photograph up with his ex, Karrueche Tran (by the way, uncanny resemblance), which she has since deleted? Hmm, let's see how far their sparks will fly. Meanwhile, it is also alleged that his baby's mother, Nia Guzman, called child protective services on him while Royal was at his home, over the recent gun and assault charge filed against him. They went knocking on his gate and you know, in true Breezy fashion, Brown opened no gate or door for them.

Let's just dance our way back over to the new flame.


Game-Mills beef


Do we need to talk about the beef between the Game and Meek Mills? Bigger than a double whopper with fries and a coke, the two have been going at it for some time now. Sean Kingston joined two weekends ago, posting shade videos to the Game about 'stolen property', i.e., his chain. Many were not accustomed to the seemingly shy Beautiful Girl singer acting all gangster, trailing expletives like commas and speaking Jamaican dialect, aka, Patois, for the world to see his roots. The views from the public: not a good look for the singer, or his career for that matter. And as it relates to the beef, the Game and Meek Mills, that history seems longer than yesterday, so 'cock nuh bizniz inna fowl fight'. Let's hope they squash the beef soon.
