Social Media Roundup – Cannon Causes Controversy, Bynes Looks Better and Demi Gets Dissed
It’s been another crazy week in music and pop culture, so in case you missed anything, we’ve rounded up all of the most notable tweets, Instagrams and more for your viewing pleasure! Enjoy!
Nick Cannon Causes a Stir
Nick Cannon‘s promotional efforts for his forthcoming album White People Party Music have been the source of a bit of a stir this week.
In a series of Instagram photos and videos, the actor/rapper has been donning whiteface while portraying a character he calls ‘Connor Smallnut’ and many have called the stunt racist and offensive.
Still, with the album supposedly set to drop on April 1, we’re still thinking the entire thing is one elaborate April Fools’ Day prank.
Rihanna Teases with ‘Teen Mom’
Rihanna got creative this week with a promo for The Monster Tour that included a series of clips of Jenelle from Teen Mom 2.
In the video, which Ri-Ri posted to Instagram, the controversial cast member explains to her lawyer that the reason she can’t go to jail is because she has plans to go to a concert – she even got feathers in her hair!
As fans know, Jenelle was actually talking about a Ke$ha concert in the episode, but thanks to Rihanna’s expert editing skills, it becomes perfect promo for her upcoming tour with Eminem!
Amanda Bynes Looks Like Her Old Self
We’re glad to see the progress that Amanda Bynes has made in both her personal life and in her studies.
The actress, who was hospitalized for a good portion of last year due to mental health issues, took to Twitter this week to post a series of photos from her first fashion show at FIDM, where she is currently taking classes.
In the pics, Amanda looks happy and healthy as she poses with her family and FIDM staff members. We can’t wait to see some of her designs!
Kimye Vogue Hits Stands
The April issue of Vogue hit stands this week, and the fact that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are featured on the cover has been a point of contention for many people in the fashion industry and in Hollywood.
Despite the fact that some believe ‘Kimye’ didn’t deserve to be featured in the high-end publication, the famous couple seem to be content with ignoring the hate.
In a recent interview with Seth Meyers, Kim called the whole opportunity an “honor” and posted some stunning photos from the family’s shoot with Annie Leibovitz on Instagram.
Demi Lovato Tangled in Twitter Feud
While the heat from Demi Lovato‘s words about Lady Gaga had seemingly died down, the 21-year-old pop star became entangled in another Twitter feud this week.
After comedian Kathy Griffin called Lovato a ‘douche’ during a Twitter Q&A, Demi fired back, but everything seemed to be basically harmless…until Demi Lovato’s fans caught wind of the situation and began sending death threats to Griffin.
Lovato then posted a note to her fans to tell them to chill out and sent an apology to tweet to Griffin. We hope this is the end of Demi’s drama for a while!
Katy Perry Dates Riff Raff…Literally
Has Katy Perry found a new man? Fans began to speculate that the “Dark Horse” singer was dating rapper Riff Raff when she posted a photo to Instagram that stated…well…that she had gone on a date with Riff Raff!
Now, reports are surfacing that the two are also set to record a song together, but whether or not it’ll be a love song is still uncertain!
Ashlee Simpson Celebrates Engagement
This week, Ashlee Simpson and fiance Evan Ross celebrated their engagement with their family and friends at a party where the couple looked sublimely happy.
Both Ashlee and older sister Jessica posted photos from the gorgeous affair, with Ashlee writing, “What an amazing engagement party with all of our loved ones! We gettin’ married :)”
