It’s a long weekend in some parts of Canada for Family Day and also President’s Day in the United States so I’m covering for Maria. We’ll keep it light today and be back tomorrow with regular coverage, which is when I’ll talk more about Beyoncé. 

 

For now though, just know that “Texas Hold ‘Em” is big on TikTok with over 80,000 videos like this one which, I think, is the unofficial dance?

And they’re doing it at the baseball game too, LOL. 

 

Reneé Rapp made headlines a few weeks ago when she said she’s ageist against millennials. Beyoncé is a millennial and Reneé has never and would never disrespect the queen. In fact she performed “Daddy Lessons” recently at one of her shows, and the Queen noticed. Anyone who has ever been sent anything from Beyoncé posts about it. 

 

This photo of Prince William at the BAFTAs talking to Phoebe Dynevor, Ayo Edebiri, Sophia Wilde, and Mia McKenna Bruce is all over my timeline. I woke up to multiple people texting me with social media commentary. 

Ayo’s face is, indeed, what’s making it so hilarious. Here’s another: 

 

Photo Assumption is our favourite game of baseless conclusions but, as we know, it’s unreliable. There is no way of saying for sure, just going by this one shot, that the future king of England was making a fool of himself. But did you see this headline at the Daily Mail? 

Daily Mail on Prince William

Even the Daily Mail, which has been up William’s ass for the last few years, couldn’t resist dumping on him. 

There were two award shows happening yesterday – the BAFTAs over in London and the People’s Choice Awards in LA. And we have ourselves another lipreading/eavesdropping moment. 

 

This time it’s Billie Eilish talking to Kylie Minogue about the invasion of the TikTokers. Because everyone is so f-cking thirsty for TikTok they’re inviting them to all the events to create viral moments which is that actually drawing people to watch the People’s Choice Awards, lol? These people can only handle 15 seconds of video at a time, how are they going to pay attention to a whole ass award show?! 

While his girlfriend attended the BAFTAs, Harry Styles was at the football, seen at the Manchester United game against Luton Town. His hair is a bit longer now after he buzzed it and looks really, really good. 

Yesterday was j-hope’s birthday, he’s now 30 years old, and had a birthday surprise for ARMY. A new special album with six tracks, Hope on the Street Vol 1, is coming on March 29, accompanied by a six-part docuseries dropping on Prime Video that same week. Hope on the Street will focus on the impact that dance has had to j-hope’s life. He is BTS’s dance captain, a wildly talented dancer, and he’ll reportedly be connecting with dancers from around the world on the show. I can’t wait to see a trailer for this. 

 

Hobi is just about a year into his 18-month military service which means that much of this was planned before he enlisted last April. As we have seen, they have banked so much content during this hiatus, and now that all seven members are currently serving, I’m so curious to see just how much more will be rolling out until next summer by the time they all complete their duty.
