The cast of Dear White People learn Zulu

When I heard that Dear White People was being renewed for a second season on Netflix both myself and most of South Africa could not contain their excitement! And when the show caught wind of their popularity in our beautiful country they decided to do something fun to show their love. The cast members sat down and were given certain phrases in Zulu and then had to guess the English translation. For most this would be a difficult task but the cast nailed almost every one. Usually learning another language completely foreign to you can be quite a challenging task, especially when English has been your mother tongue your entire life, but the cast was pretty impressive with their interpretations.

Watch it for yourself here:

And this is not the first time they’ve given a shoutout to South Africa:

Be sure to watch season two if you haven’t already binged watched the entire season like me. (No regrets)

How Beyoncé won the Met Gala without even showing up

BeyoncéAlthough Beyoncé skipped the religion-themed 2018 Met Gala, she somehow still managed to steal the night when a hilarious meme began circulating on Twitter. Sources revealed to Entertainment Tonight earlier this week that Queen Bey would forgo the fashion event to take some much-needed vacation time with her husband Jay-Z before their On the Run II tour. But fans quickly started joking that just because we couldn’t see Beyoncé didn’t mean she wasn’t there—she’d clearly hit the red carpet as the Holy Spirit.

“Beyoncé arriving as the Holy Ghost. Stunning!” one Twitter user wrote while uploading a picture of the red carpet with no one on it. “Beyoncé serving looks,” someone else joked. The Beyhive didn’t waste any time whipping up their own versions of the hysterical meme.

This marks the second year in a row Bey was absent from the event; last year she had to skip out because she was pregnant with her twins, Rumi and Sir.She’s obviously had some of the most incredible Met Gala gowns in the past as well, from her unforgettable 2013 Givenchy dress with matching gloves to the 2014 black Givenchy dress from the elevator incident to that other see-through Givenchy showstopper that shocked us all. Let’s just hope she’s well-rested and ready for 2019’s gala.

Twitter isn’t impressed with the 2018 Met Gala red carpet offering

2018 Met GalaThe 2018 Met Gala is upon us girls and boys, which means another 24 hours of fawning over the biggest names in showbiz as they strut their stuff on the red carpet, all in aid of charity. The event, formally known as the Costume Institute Gala, happens every first Monday of May and is a fundraiser dedicated to New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, aka The Anna Wintour Costume Center, in homage to the American Vogue’s editor-in-chief, who has been a chair member of the museum’s gala since 1995. Every year the celebrities don some of their most outrageous gowns to fit with the theme, which this year is ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’, and we all knew it was going to be super controversial. Just like every year, though, there are a bunch of people (mostly on Twitter) who are less than pleased with the sartorial offering on the Met Gala red carpet. It didn’t take long for the tweets and memes to come rolling in…

There were, however, a few people who they were SERIOUSLY impressed with. Cue, Rihanna and some other folk you might recognise…

Well, you can’t please them all.

Gigi Hadid celebrated the eve of her 23rd birthday with some Cocoa Krispies

Gigi HadidGigi Hadid knows how to live like a queen, and did so on the eve of her 23rd birthday — with a bowl of Cocoa Krispies.

Gigi took to Twitter to announce the sweet news on Sunday night (April 22). “As we close in on midnight, I would like to share that my final meal as a 22-year-old will officially be Cocoa Krispies. Thank you for your attention,” she wrote. Fans responded immediately, joking that she’s “snap crackling and popping” her way into 23, that she should totally be listening to Taylor Swift’s song “22,” and that she is, of course, a legend.

The supermodel also took to her Instagram account to share a series of nature photos, and to explain that each year, her birthday falls a day after Earth Day. She explained why nature means so much to her, and that she’s just a “little Taurus girl” who finds so much inspiration in being outside. “Every year, the day before my bday is Earth Day, and I’m still just a lil Taurus girl who finds so much happiness, contentment, and inspiration when I take a minute in nature and look around,” she wrote. “May we celebrate Mother Earth every day for all she gives and teaches us!”


Then on her actual birthday, Gigi shared a couple of old photos on her Instagram, including a “shoutout to my mamma.” One of the pics is from her first birthday, featuring Yolanda Hadid helping a baby Gigi blow out the singular candle on top of a birthday cake.

23 !! ++ shoutout to my mamma

A post shared by Gigi Hadid (@gigihadid) on

To celebrate her sister’s birthday, Bella Hadid also posted a series of throwback photos as she does every year saying on her Instagram story that April 23 is her “favourite day of the year” because it is the year her sister was born. She also mentioned that the two were best friends since the moment they met. Total aww moment.

Sbahle backs her boo on IG

Health: Sbahle MpisaneOver this past weekend, rumours were flying left, right and centre that Sbahle Mpisane had been cosying up to a mystery man. Sbahle caught wind of the rumours and took to her social media (as one does) to shut down the rumours once and for all. Earlier this year Sbahle was adamant that her and soccer player Itumeleng Khune were “just friends” but it seems there was a whole lot more going on. But her social media posts that she uploaded today let the people know loud and clear that things are going strong between the couple.

She took to her Insta stories and posted things like, “We remain strong…not everyone is gonna be happy for you…but it’s so much better to get through life’s BS when you have someone who loves you by your side,” and then this was all followed by a very cute video montage of special moments spent between the two.

Fellow musicians and celebrities share tributes to Avicii

AviciiSwedish DJ Tim Bergling, known by his stage name as Avicii, passed away at the age of 28 on Friday. “It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii,” said his publicist Diana Baron in a statement, according to Billboard. “He was found dead in Muscat, Oman this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th. The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.”

According to Billboard, Avicii started releasing music on the Laidback Luke Forum in the late 2000s, before breaking through with his debut studio album, True. In 2016, he decided to retire from touring, citing numerous health issues. “Two weeks ago, I took the time to drive across the U.S. with my friends and team, to just look and see and think about things in a new way,” he wrote on his website, per Billboard. “It really helped me realize that I needed to make the change that I’d been struggling with for a while.”

Then, last year, he posted a letter on his website announcing his return to recording in the studio. “WE ALL REACH A POINT IN OUR LIVES AND CAREERS WHERE WE UNDERSTAND WHAT MATTERS THE MOST TO US. For me it’s creating music. That is what I live for, what I feel I was born to do,” he wrote last year. “Last year I quit performing live, and many of you thought that was it. But the end of live never meant the end of Avicii or my music. Instead, I went back to the place where it all made sense – the studio. The next stage will be all about my love of making music to you guys. It is the beginning of something new. Hope you´ll enjoy it as much as I do.”

Following news of Bergling’s passing, numerous celebrities including Liam Payne, Ellie Goulding, and deadmau5 penned moving tributes in memory of the late DJ on Twitter. “Devastating news about Avicii, a beautiful soul, passionate and extremely talented with so much more to do. My heart goes out to his family. God bless you Tim x,” wrote producer Calvin Harris, while Dua Lipa tweeted, “Such sad news to hear about Avicii passing. Too young and way too soon. My condolences go out to his family, friends and fans x.”

His longtime friend, fellow DJ Laidback Luke, also wrote a message in his memory. “OH MY GOD 😭 wow… I’m speechless. May you Rest In Peace my dear Tim 💔,” he tweeted, along with a link to a news article about his passing.
