Social News Daily Sat, 25 Oct 2014 21:47:31 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Iggy Azalea Releases New Single “Beg For It” While Twitter Reacts [Listen] Sat, 25 Oct 2014 21:45:37 +0000

Iggy, Iggy is at it again. The Australian native released her newest single today called “Beg For It” featuring the Danish singer-songwriter, MØ.

Not only is Iggy Azalea currently doing concerts, she is on Saturday Night Live tonight with the iconic Jim Carrey, and then she decides to release a new song.

In my opinion, when “Beg For It” comes on, I just want to dance and shake my non-existent booty. Iggy even uses a classic Notorious B.I.G. lyrical reference with “Iggy, Iggy, Iggy can’t you see? That everyone wants to put their hands on me.”

It is VERY clear that this song is on the fence with the music loving majority. Some love it, some hate it, and some just don’t know yet.

There are some people who think “Beg For It” is another Iggy Azalea “Fancy” with the similar beat and minimalist feel.

Even how MØ is similar to Charli XCX or that Charile XCX should have been on this track instead.

Others would rather listen to MØ’s part only

Some just plain hate it

Then there are the religious Iggy fans and will stick with her forever

What do you think?

‘Sons Of Guns’ Stars Arrested For Child Abuse Sat, 25 Oct 2014 15:36:26 +0000 Stephanie Hayden and Kristafor Ford from the show Sons Of Guns were arrested in Louisiana this week for child abuse.

According to WAFB, Ford is being accused of striking a 9-year-old with a leather belt. He is being charged with cruelty to a juvenile.

Hayden was also arrested. Hayden did not hit the child, her son from a previous marriage, but she was charged with principal to cruelty to a juvenile because she was allegedly in the room at the time of the abuse.

Sons Of Guns was cancelled after another one of the show’s stars was arrested back in August. Will Hayden, Stephanie’s father, was arrested for three counts of aggravated rape. At least one of those victims was a minor.

The Discovery Channel announced that it was canceling Sons Of Guns shortly after Will Hayden was accused of rape.

It’s been a sad and disturbing week for reality TV show fans. TLC recently announced that it was canceling Here Comes Honey Boo Boo after it was revealed that Mama June was dating a convicted child molestor.

Rainn Wilson Drops Vine Star Curtis Lepore From Project Sat, 25 Oct 2014 15:02:27 +0000 Rainn Wilson will be producing a new scripted comedy series featuring five popular Vine stars but Curits Lepore won’t be one of them. The Office actor announced today that Lepore was dropped from the project.

According to Deadline, Wilson stirred up some internet rage when he announced that Lepore would be part of the Hollywood and Vine project, due to the fact that the Vine star was charged with rape earlier this year. Lepore took a plea deal and plead guilty to a lesser charge of felony assault.

Wilson writes on Facebook: “After much consideration, the decision was made with Curtis Lepore to mutually part ways on SoulPancake’s television project featuring Vine stars. We felt this was the best decision for everyone involved. We wish Curtis all the best in all his future endeavors.”

Lepore has not commented directly on his dismissal from the project but he did post the following message on Twitter: “If you make your mother smile like this, you’re doing something right. Don’t worry mom, things are gonna be a-ok!”

Hollywood And Vine will follow the lives of five Vine stars as they try to make it in Hollywood. The show will feature Jerry Purpdrank, Lele Pons, Simone shepherd and Christian DelGrosso. Rainn Willson has not announced a replacement for Lepore yet.

KFC’s Zinger Double Down King Is No Bun, All Meat Fri, 24 Oct 2014 16:32:14 +0000 Do you remember the Double Down? KFC’s “sandwich” with two pieces of fried chicken as bread? Well, that’s practically a vegetarian option compared to the Zinger Double Down King.

The KFC Double Down featured two pieces of chicken, a few slices of bacon, and some cheese. The Zinger Double Down King adds a big meat patty right in the middle.
The Zinger Double Down King went on sale in South Korea on October 18. No word on calorie count but the Double Down weighed in at around 540 calories. So we’re guessing that this new monstrosity will probably cost you about 750 calories per sandwich.

Oh, and it looks a lot less appetizing in person.

The Zinger Double Down King is only available for a limited time and it doesn’t appear like there are any plans to bring it to the United States. So, unfortunately, it doesn’t look like anyone stateside is going to get the chance to take a bite of this big, beefy, fried, cheesy chicken mess.

Doctor Diagnosed With Ebola In NYC [Twitter Reacts] Fri, 24 Oct 2014 14:53:56 +0000 Doctor Craig Spencer rode the subway, took an Uber cab, and went bowling this week in New York City before he was diagnosed with Ebola. Health officials insist that there is no reason for alarm but that isn’t calming the nerves on Twitter.

While many people have criticized Spencer for being reckless after returning to the United States, officials say that he did nothing wrong. Officials also say that there it is highly unlikely that anyone in New York will catch Ebola from Dr. Spencer.

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo said: “Being New Yorkers, a little anxiety can keep you safe. It’s not a bad thing. But undue anxiety is unproductive.”

Spencer’s fiance, Morgan Dixon, is currently under quarantine, as well two other friends of Spencer who had contact with him before he was diagnosed with ebola.

Dr. Irwin Redlener, the director of the National Center for Disaster Preparedness at Columbia University, said that no one in New York is in danger of catching the disease at the moment. At the same time, officials are being abundantly cautious.

Redlener said: “There is the pure science in terms of what we know and what can come from that. On the other end of the spectrum, there is the world of abundance of caution. Public officials are constantly trying to find the right balance.”

Dear Prudence Doles Out Harsh Advice To 1 Percenter Before Halloween Fri, 24 Oct 2014 13:45:07 +0000 A person who lives in one of the “wealthiest neighborhoods of the country” is upset that poor people (you know, the other 99%) keep knocking on their door on Halloween.

“Halloween For The 99 Percent” writes that they already pay more than enough in taxes to support social services and that they shouldn’t be forced into more charitable acts on Halloween.

The person writes: “I live in one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in the country … I have noticed that on Halloween, what seems like 75% of the trick-or-treaters are clearly not from this neighborhood… I feel this is inappropriate. Halloween isn’t a social service or a charity in which I have to buy candy for less fortunate children. Obviously this makes me feel like a terrible person, because what’s the big deal about making less fortunate kids happy on a holiday? But it just bugs me, because we already pay more than enough taxes toward actual social services. Should Halloween be a neighborhood activity, or is it legitimately a free-for-all in which people hunt down the best candy grounds for their kids?”

Dear Prudence responded to “99” but she didn’t exactly answer her question. Instead, the advice columnist called “99” a cheapskate and said that she hopes real ghouls and people with pitchforks knock on her door this Halloween instead of the cute, less fortunate, costumed kids that she’s so bothered by.

Dear Prudence writes: “Your whine makes me kind of wish that people from the actual poor side of town come this year not with scary costumes but with real pitchforks. Stop being callous and miserly and go to Costco, you cheapskate, and get enough candy to fill the bags of the kids who come one day a year to marvel at how the 1% live.”

What do you think? Is Dear Prudence right?

Toys ‘R’ Us Pulls ‘Breaking Bad’ Toys, Aaron Paul Responds Fri, 24 Oct 2014 13:21:17 +0000 Toys ‘R’ Us stirred up a little controversy last week when they decided to pull a couple of Breaking Bad toys from its shelves. The toy store was pressured by angry parents who said that the violent drug dealing action figures were not appropriate for kids. Well, the show’s two stars, Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston, have issued a response.

Lets start with Mr. Cranston. The man who played Walter White didn’t wade to far into the controversy. He simply posted a little joke about the toys being sold overseas.

Aaron Paul, on the other hand, greeted the controversy head on, saying Toys ‘R’ Us was being hypocritical by pulling the Breaking Bad toys while keeping violent video games and Barbie Dolls on their shelves.

The actor also directed people to a petition where they could show their support for action figures.

The petition points out that while Toys ‘R Us does sell toys to young kids, they also sell products for a mature crowd.

The petition reads: “It is NOT irresponsible to have these in the store. It is only irresponsible if they sell them to people they are not appropriate for… Just like TRU doesn’t sell “M” rated video game titles to young kids, they will not sell age-inappropriate toys to kids. PARENTS should be the one dictating what their kids watch, buy, read, play and consume, NOT the buyers or employees of Toys R Us.”

Do you think Toys ‘R’ Us should put the Breaking Bad toys back on the shelves?

Ryan Murphy does a significant amount of teasing the American Horror Story fans with what may or may not happen in a season or a specific episode. Murphy’s comment that Jessica Lange would sing Lana Del Rey proved to be true and incredible when Elsa Mars (played by Lange) covered Lana Del Rey’s “Gods and Monsters” in last night’s episode.

It was the highlight of the episode, which is a two part Halloween episode. With it themed for Halloween, Jessica Lange’s rendition was a spooky one. She slays the song and her matching outfit, while making eyes with Edward Mordrake, played by Wes Bentley.

For those fans who loved it so much, you can purchase Lange’s cover on iTunes here.
