K.Dot fans rejoice! Just weeks after releasing a new single, Kendrick Lamar released DAMN. on Friday.
If you were looking for a sign that now is the time to sign up for Spotify Premium, this is your sign.
After the release of the immensely popular game last week, I, like many other Canadian Pokémon fans were a little disappointed when it wasn’t officially released in the Canadian App & Play Stores. There were workarounds for both Android and iOS users, but there was speculation that downloading the unreleased version affected long-term battery performance, and resulted in some users being banned from the Play Store for up to a year.
Unless you’ve been living under a Geodude (that would be a rock-type Pokémon), us 90s kids have been blessed by the retro gods with some of our favourite things making a comeback in the last week. As a 24-year-old blerd, my level of excitement can barely be contained over the news of these 2 incredible things making comebacks.
And I’m not mad about it. I’m more of a TV junkie than a movie junkie any day of the week, so to see so many of my favourite shows nominated is super exciting! And yes, I’ll be the one to bring this up: big ups to the Emmys for actually featuring a diverse selection of not only white & black actors, but Indian and Egyptian actors as well. Could there be more? Sure, but TV is where everything’s at right now so any recognition for all the hard work and amazing talent that goes into a show is phenomenal.
Unless you’ve literally been under a rock with no access to the online world, last week announced and subsequently launched a major rebrand of the very popular photo sharing app.
It looks like Instagram is stepping up their game and looking very much more like an ad-based, influencer-filled platform, rather than just any other photo sharing app where people go to share pictures of their food and pets.
This cleaner redesign also meshes nicely with the particular aesthetic that the majority of influencers use on their pages.
One thing I’m truly not a fan of (and publications like Mashable and AdWeek seem to agree) is that terrible logo. The original Instagram logo was iconic. That retro camera was easily recognizable and now it looks like any other photo app you can find on Google Play or the App Store.
As much as I like the newer, much cleaner feed, that terrible logo is really holding me back from updating it. But like with ever other major rebrand, we’ll all freak out over it for a week or two, then forget about and eventually be indifferent to it. Until then, I’ll keep chuckling at these delightful jabs at the cartoony logo.
What do you think of Instagram’s new logo?
In case you’ve been just hiding under a rock all day, the queen, Beyoncé, has found another way to snatch our edges and leave us bald.
Originally announced in 2014 , Beyoncé announced a 50-50 partnership with TOPSHOP under the business name Parkwood Topshop Athletic Ltd, and we now know the official name of the line – Ivy Park. Of course, Ivy is a salute to her daughter Blue (who makes a cameo in the promo video) and the Park is reference to Parkwood Park in Houston.
I’m what you’d call frugal, but Ivy Park gives me an excuse to at least pretend I’m visiting TOPSHOP or Nordstrom. The power of Beyoncé. The line doesn’t officially hit stores until April 14th, but it’ll be available at TOPSHOP, Hudson’s Bay and Nordstrom.
