Let’s Celebrate National Donut Day By Revisiting Ariana Grande’s Disastrous #Donutgate! – Perez Hilton

It’s also a day to appreciate Ariana Grande, who has basically become the unofficial mascot for donuts ever since she was TMZ published footage of the then-22-year-old singer and a group of friends causing some innocent-enough ruckus in a donut shop. The pop star was shown cozying up to her bandana-wearing love interest Ricky Alvarez before she cracks up and, with mischievous playfulness, proceeds to stick her tongue into a frosted donut sitting on the counter. “What the f**k is that? I hate Americans. I hate America. That’s disgusting.” As we reported, the footage went viral and ignited a firestorm of outrage from American patriots and donut lovers everywhere. The scandal blew up so immensely, Ari was forced to issue an …

The reason Britain rolls out the red carpet for Trump? Its what Britain does | Nesrine Malik

I have bad news for Sadiq Khan. It is entirely British to welcome despots and problematic allies, says Guardian columnist Nesrine Malik This time its a brief smash and grab when Donald Trump insulted Theresa May, beefed with Sadiq Khan, and triggered a domestic mini-culture war because of a blimp. The buildup to this weeks pageantry was trailed on Sky News with an two US presidents. So why Trump? British politics is febrile; the government is deadlocked and leaderless. Europe, immigration, race and Islamophobia are sensitive sores. Hosting Trump right now, a man who has already given us nasty Meghan Markle is like asking your pugnacious neighbour over in the middle of your family row. The answer is, this is …

No One Is An Outsider At This UK School

Photos by Rhiannon Adam LONDON, U.K. — Andrew Moffat never thought a lesson plan could be this controversial. But when the primary school decided to teach children about diversity and LGBTQ rights, parents at his Birmingham school protested loudly. The primary school teacher was caught completely off-guard by the protests which began in January when one mother pulled her 10-year-old daughter out of the Parkfield Community School,   “changing the moral position of family values” and “ *** No Outsiders ran for four years without complaint. Were you surprised at the level of reaction to the program this year? Yes, the whole school was shocked.

Security News This Week: A Teen Waltzed Into Mar-a-Lago

Returning to work after a long weekend is always rough—especially if you have to deal with a looming worm attack or yet another disinformation operation on your networks! Which was the case in the security world this week. Despite dire warnings and an urgent update issued from Microsoft, customers are taking too long to patch a critical vulnerability that still remains in approximately 900,000 Windows computers.

Facebook and Twitter took down another batch of fake accounts and pages that appear to be linked to Iran. What Facebook didn’t take down was a doctored video of Nancy Pelosi, which earned the …

UPDATED: The Last Day Of Governors Ball Was A Total Sh*tshow Betches

Anyone who’s ever put together even a halfway decent birthday party knows that event planning is a pain in the ass. There are always unexpected factors, and it’s difficult to make everyone happy. Multiply that scale to a large music festival, and things are bound to go wrong along the way. Even if a festival isn’t organized by sociopaths like Billy McFarland and Ja Rule, sh*t happens. Case in point: this year’s Governors Ball festival in New York City, which took place this past weekend. Things ran smoothly for the first two days of the festival, but then on Sunday, everything went wrong. There was rain in the forecast for much of the afternoon and evening, calling the outdoor festival …

Drew Angerer/Getty Images News/Getty Images The Tweets About Apple Reportedly Shutting Down iTunes Are Calling It The End Of An Era By Lizzy Rosenberg a day ago Way back in the day before iPhones and iPads, I received an iPod Nano for Hanukkah. And thus, my very first iTunes account was born. I filled the entirety of my PC’s storage space with Green Day and Simple Plan, and let me tell you: Life was good. That’s why I’m devastated to hear that Apple is reportedly discontinuing its OG music service.

How the royals navigate awkward small talk

“Clearly in terms of shared interests and age they might have had more interesting conversations sitting next to Ivanka and Jared,” our correspondent says. “But at the end of the day William will be king one day, so pairing him with a more high-profile figure was probably more fitting.” Image copyright Chris Jackson/Getty Images Image caption Donald Trump said climate change came up in his discussions with Prince Charles Judy Apps says being able to navigate away from dangerous topics can depend on how much homework you have done and what you know about the person. “It can be tricky if the other person brings up a difficult topic that you disagree on, but just try to steer the conversation,” …

Spotify is building shared-queue Social Listening

Want to rock out together even when you’re apart? Spotify has prototyped an unreleased feature called “Social Listening” that lets multiple people add songs to a queue they can all listen to. You just all scan one friend’s QR-style Spotify Social Listening code, and then anyone can add songs to the real-time playlist. Spotify could potentially expand the feature to synchronize playback so you’d actually hear the same notes at the same time, but for now it’s a just a shared queue. Social Listening could give Spotify a new viral growth channel, as users could urge friends to download the app to sync up. The intimate experience of co-listening might lead to longer sessions with Spotify, boosting ad plays or …

6 Celebrities Who Do Unnecessary Instagram Ads Betches

It’s nothing new for celebrities to endorse products in exchange for large amounts of money. From the earliest days of radio, print, and TV advertising, famous people have done sponsorships with literally every product imaginable. But in the past few years, the rise of social media, particularly Instagram, has given way to a new model of celebrity endorsements. Now, anyone with more than a few thousand followers is considered an influencer, and their posts are up for grabs to the highest bidder. Naturally, people who are already famous are especially appealing to brands, and even many of the biggest names aren’t above a little #Spon here and there. But not all sponsored posts are created equal. Whether the brands they’re …

Startups net more than capital with NBA players as investors

Mary Ann Azevedo In February, we covered how digital sports media startup Overtime had raised $23 million in a Series B round of funding led by Spark Capital. Former NBA Commissioner David Stern was an early investor and advisor in the company (putting money in the company’s seed round). Golden State Warriors player Kevin Durant invested as part of the company’s Series A in early 2018 via his busy investment vehicle, Thirty Five Ventures. And then, Carmelo Anthony invested (via his Melo7 Tech II fund) earlier this year. Other NBA-related investors include Baron Davis, Andre Iguodala and Victor Oladipo, and other non-NBA backers include Andreessen Horowitz and Greycroft. I talked to Overtime’s CEO, 27-year-old Zack Weiner, about how the involvement of so many NBA players came about. I also wondered what they brought to the table beyond their cash. But …
