It’s Tabloid Thursday. Girls want you to care about whatever they are talking about, that’s where this weekly blog comes in. Every Thursday, I’ll break down the biggest stories from the last week so you can impress your wife, girlfriend, or the random girl you met on Tinder. The days of mansplaining stupid sports knowledge at the bar are over.
Frank Ocean & Coachella: Musician Frank Ocean was in the news this week for showing up over an hour late to his set on the first weekend of Coachella. This was his first live performance in over 6 years. To make matters worst, he canceled his show for this weekend as well. If I was someone who was shelled for $4000 to go to Coachella, I would be so pissed about this. If you don’t perform for 6 years and then when you finally commit to a show, you need to show up.
Love Is Blind Live Show: I have never seen Love Is Blind, nor do I plan on watching it. But when I logged onto Twitter on Sunday, I was a part of the Love Is Blind watchers which felt like I joined a cult. There was supposed to be a live reunion of some of the cast to start at 5 EST. An hour and a half later at 6:30, Netflix tweeted that the live show would not be taking place due to “technical difficulties”. Here’s my take, if you’re on Netflix, you can’t have “technical difficulties”. My mom has “technical difficulties” with her phone and I fix them by closing the app and turning it back on. If I can figure out her issue, I am sure you’re paying someone enough money to fix the problem. Shame on you Netflix.
Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn Update: I reported last week that Taylor Swift and her boyfriend Joe Alwyn had broken up. This week his costar, Emma Laird, posted a picture of him on Instagram. I feel like he might be moving on a little too quickly, but I’m still certain that Taylor is in the studio cooking up some heartbreaking music. I look at this story and think about how I feel when my team trades one of my favorite players and his new teams’ posts “New Threads” with a picture of him. It hurts everywhere.
I know this ain’t the most thrilling news for all of us, but you know what they say – “Happy Wife, Happy Life”. So, next time you’re at dinner with your girl, drop some of the knowledge you gained from this blog and watch her face light up. Let’s be real, she puts up with our football-induced mental breakdowns every Sunday from September to February, so the least we can do is show we care, am I right?
