Adele vs Beyoncé

The Recording Academy certainly did not expect Adele to break her Grammy into pieces to share the Album of the Year win with her idol — Beyoncé.

Adele was of the view that she did not deserve the award, and the large Beyhive agreed with her. 

While many applauded her stance, making her speech go viral on the Internet, die hard Adele fans weren’t having it, as they believed that she earned her win fair and square. And so the battle post Grammy is which was the better album? Lemonade or 25? Let’s leave it for your emotions and personal opinions to decide for you.

Ashton Kutcher on Child Exploitation

On the international scene, a CBS’s video on social media of Ashton Kutcher speaking out on the fight to end child exploitation at a Senate hearing this week went viral! The father of two daughters revealed his ‘day job’ is not just acting, but running an organisation known as Thorn — a technological innovation designed to fight child sexual exploitation. Many applauded his valiant efforts in becoming an instrumental member of the movement.

Cheating on The Scene

Social site The Scene, focused on cheating with a web series called — ‘Broken’. In it, exes confronted each other years after they had broken up, and let’s just say it was not pretty.

There was a black couple profiled with the man showing little to no remorse for his cheating, and the woman in tears by his response. Social media was up in arms over the video, particularly because after all that he had done, he would like to remain 'friends' and watch her ‘grow’. Come again?! Leave it up to The Scene to have everyone talking!

Daddy Daughter Valentine’s Day

ABC News shared a video of Philadelphia Dance Centre hosting a Daddy Daughter Valentine’s Day ballet class. The girls were accompanied by their dads who tried to catch up on the dance floor. It was hilarious, yet the most adorable thing to watch. Kudos to those fathers for being there for their little angels on the day of love! 

Celebration of Love

Speaking of Valentine’s Day, red and white were trending all day Tuesday in celebration of love. Even side chicks got a little love too! Hope the wives aren’t too mad about that.
