Social Media Roundup – Breakups, Bad Boys and Babies!
It’s been another eventful week in pop culture, so in case you missed anything, we’ve rounded up the most notable social media posts for your viewing pleasure! Enjoy!
Robin Thicke & Paula Patton Call it Quits
The world was surprised this week when Robin Thicke and Paula Patton announced they planned to call it quits after almost ten years of marriage and decades of friendship, but the story didn’t end there.
It has since become pretty clear that it was Patton who called for the split, and rumors have been flying that Thicke is doing everything he can to get her back.
In the meantime, the “Blurred Lines” singer took to his website to express gratitude for fans and their continued support, writing, “I want to thank everyone for the well wishes these last few days. My fans mean everything to me.”
Miley Blasts ‘Life & Style’ Rumors
Miley Cyrus has been a staple in the tabloids for some time now, but it looks like the “Wrecking Ball” singer is starting to get fed up.
Earlier this week, Life & Style apparently printed articles that alleged she was hooking up with Justin Bieber and also signing on as ‘Tinker Bell’ in an upcoming Peter Pan adaptation.
Miley took to Twitter to dispel both of the rumors, and used a few choice words to do so! Go girl!
5SOS Releases “She Looks So Perfect” Music Video
5 Seconds of Summer released the music video for “She Looks So Perfect” this week and the response was incredible!
Not only were our boys trending on Twitter for several days in a row, the video has also racked up more than two million hits on YouTube!
Justin Bieber is ‘Bad’ on the Cover of ‘Rolling Stone’
The headline “Bad Boy – Why Justin Bieber Just Won’t Behave” is scrolled across the front, along with a photo of a shirtless Bieber. The issue hits stands today (February 28) and reportedly doesn’t paint the Biebs in the most positive light.
Katy Perry Drops Surprising Baby News
Rumors of Katy Perry’s breakup with John Mayer were basically the subject of every gossip website in the country this week, but in the midst of all that, Perry dropped some surprising baby news.
On Wednesday, the “Dark Horse” singer took to Twitter to share that she had helped deliver a baby in a living room! While Perry doesn’t give a lot of details, many are speculating the child belongs to her sister Angela Hudson.
Finally you can add "helps delivers babies in living rooms" to my resume! It's been a miracle of a day…❤️ Auntie Katy aka Stylist Auntie 👶—

Seth Rogen Calls Out Congress
A video of Seth Rogen giving an emotional and humorous testimony about Alzheimer’s research in front of members of Congress was making the rounds yesterday, but now, the story has taken a turn.
Though the video from C-Span shows Rogen seemingly speaking to a full committee, the actor/comedian has since stated that only two senators actually stuck around to hear his speech, with the rest leaving after the photo ops.
The situation furthers Rogen’s initial argument that Alzheimer’s research is not a priority among the government, which he has continued to point out on Twitter, even calling out Senator Mark Kirk for his early departure:
Not sure why only two senators were at the hearing. Very symbolic of how the Government views Alzheimer's. Seems to be a low priority.—
