Strike a pose Nicki
Being a singer, songwriter, actress, and hip-hop queen Nicki Minaj is one busy lady but her schedule is about to get much crazier, as she just signed a major modeling contract with renowned agency Wilhelmina. Nicki took to social media to make the big announcement: “I love the synergy between my music and how it inspires my fashion. I’m thrilled and honored to have signed with Wilhelmina – they get me.” One thing is sure, Nicki Minaj knows how to strike a pose; whether it’s for her 77 million Instagram followers or campaigns for the likes of Roberto Cavalli, Adidas Originals and MAC Cosmetics – so we can’t wait to see what she will bring to the table (or rather the camera). ICYMI just last week Nicki was crowned by Billboard as the new record holder for the most Hot 100 hits by a female artist!
Big Guwop & Black Barbie “Make Love”
We are not done with Nicki Minaj just yet (we told you she is a busy lady). After lots of teasing on social media, the singer finally dropped the visuals for Make Love ft. Gucci Mane! The lavish video sees Gucci stepping off a private jet and cruising to an extravagant mansion in his apple red sports car, where he finds Nicky bouncing on top of an inflatable unicorn. The queen of rap then delivers some hard hitting lines (referring to her beef with Remy Ma) – “You see, silly rabbit, to be the queen of rap ǀ You gotta sell records, you gotta get plaques ǀ S, plural like the S on my chest”. What’s not to love 😉

Kendall “Monroe” Jenner
LOVE magazine released their latest video editorial starring Kendall Jenner as a Hollywood icon. The sultry clip sees Jenner doing her best impersonation of the ‘50s model and movie star, Marilyn Monroe, lip syncing to the actress’ iconic song, “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend” and reciting some of her famous quotes. Kendall looks as beautiful as ever, donning lacy La Perla lingerie and retro swimsuits as she dances around, playing with her tiara and pearl necklace. Come to think of it, just a few weeks ago we also saw Kendall lip syncing for an Estee Lauder ad – so that seems to be a thing now?

Pharrell Willams “the musical” 
Left wanting more musical action after La La land? Not to worry, Pharrell Willams is releasing a musical, billed as a Romeo and Juliet style story, based entirely on his childhood! With an award-winning director, writer and producer on board, the movie titled “Atlantis”,  is sure to blow us out of the water. Williams, who was also part of the production of the Oscar-nominated “Hidden Figures” and wrote the Oscar-nominated hit track “Happy”, will be co-producing the movie himself. Talk about an all-star cast – in front and behind the cameras!
Meet Miss SA
On Sunday evening Demi Leigh Nel-Peters was crowned the 59th Miss South Africa, walking away with prizes worth over 2 million including a 1 million rand cash prize, a car and bursaries for herself and her choice of students! The 21-year-old beauty, hailing from Sedgefield in the Western Cape, is a final year B.Com business management and entrepreneurship student as well as a part-time model at Boss Models. For this young lady it was a dream come true and she “wants to be remembered as a humble Miss South Africa who stayed authentic throughout her reign”. 2017 also marked the first time in the history of Miss SA that the public was able to vote for their favourites, with their SMS votes carrying 25% of the overall voting towards the winner and 75% resting with the official judges, who included previous Miss SA Claudia Henkel, Maps Maponyane, Cameron van der Burgh and Bridget Masinga to name a few. Watch the crowning below!
Cash Me Ousside‘ Girl Gets a reality show – “How Bow Dah?”
“Cash Me Ousside” girl, Danielle Bregoli, turned into a viral sensation after her appearance on The Dr Phil Show where she told the audience that if they didn’t like her behavior, they could “Cash me outside, how bow dah?”. Clearly, they did ‘like’ it as the wild child just signed a deal with a major production company that is giving her her own reality TV show, which will most likely turn her into a millionaire at the age of 14, so get ready for lots of drama, fights and smack talk! Further extending her fame, Danielle recently stared in Kodak Black‘s music video for “Everything 1K” and charges up to $30,000 USD to make appearances at parties. Talk about cashing in! If you are not part of the over 35m people that already watched the infamous video, do so now.

Oh snap! Facebook gets Stories
Facebook has done their biggest update in years by introducing FB Stories which will allow for images, videos and replies to pop up at the top of your News Feed for 24 hours only and the update will also allow users to send Stories to a selected person or group. Connect the dots – this IS Snapchat, but at least there will be one twist in the form of animated face filters (Alien: Covenant, Despicable Me 3, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Power Rangers, Smurfs: The Lost Village and Wonder Woman all got one) – so that’s pretty cool, right? Talking about updates, the new iOS 10.3 version will include a “Find my AirPods” feature, allowing users to find their AirPods via an alarm, maps or being able to see when last the AirPods were connected to the device.
Fast-food gimmicks
The 21 century has seen some crazy sale gimmicks and the latest weird (and sort of wonderful) inventions is by no other than fast-food chains! Domino’s Pizzas has announced that their pizzas will be delivered by robots in the near future (Silicon Valley much?), as they have teamed up with Starship Technologies to employ a fleet of pizza-delivering robots. This will however only be available in Europe to customers within a mile of select locations.
Domino’s rival, Pizza Hut, has also upped their game with “Pie-Ordering Sneakers” called Pie Tops. What makes this limited edition sneaker so special? They order your pizza for you with the push of a hidden button. All you have to do is sync it with the app and choose which pie should be delivered to you.

Then there is Burger King, who just announced their new Whopper-flavored toothpaste with “active Whopper extracts” that provides the same flavour found in a Whopper while also promoting healthy teeth. Burger King notes that with this toothpaste, “you won’t have to hesitate between enjoying a Whopper and brushing your teeth ever again” (because that happens all the time). What a crazy time to be alive :p

Spidey VS Penny Wise 
We not Clowning Dawg, IT just beat out Spiderman and everyone else!
And here we though the VERY highly-anticipated trailer for “Spider-Man: Homecoming” was going to be the hype of the movie world – but it seems like we were wrong with Stephen King’s “IT” releasing its first official trailer, giving Spiderman a run for its money! Spiderman is currently sitting on 52 million views with IT on a whopping 113 million views! (FB stats).
IT trailer stats:
·         Officially the most viewed movie trailer of all time
·         2nd most viewed online video of all time in less than 24 hrs! (Only video beating it is the Rings Hidden Camera Prank, which tunred out to be a VIRAL PRANK and not a trailer)
·         Stats since posted: 113 M views ,  2,4  M shares, 774K likes and 685K comments
With projected revenue of $800 M it remains to be seen if the Amazing Spidey can beat out Penny Wise at the box office.
