Kanye West Angry With Record Label Over Release

Kanye West is alleging that Universal released his latest album, “Donda,” without his approval.   On Sunday, West’s tenth studio album, named after his late mother, finally hit streaming platforms after weeks of delays and three major listening party events. However, hours after its release, West took to Instagram to share that he believes Universal Music Group went forward with the “Donda” release before he was ready for it to go out.   “UNIVERSAL PUT MY ALBUM OUT WITHOUT MY APPROVAL AND THEY BLOCKED JAIL 2 FROM BEING ON THE ALBUM,” he wrote in one of the only posts that appear on his page. West’s mention of the track “Jail Pt 2” refers to the 24th track on the album, which was initially listed on streaming platforms when the album dropped early on Sunday but was unable to be played until later in the afternoon. While the exact reason for the delay on the track was unclear, NME reports that West shared a bit of information in a since-deleted Instagram post.

James Corden and Other Blasted For Stopping Traffic

The stars of Amazon’s upcoming “Cinderella” remake are getting roasted on social media after they reportedly stopped traffic in Los Angeles for a flash mob in an apparent effort to promote the film.  The film will mark singer Camila Cabello’s debut acting role as she takes on the fairy tale character who defies her evil stepsisters and engages in some hijinks involving a ball, a slipper and magic. However, an apparent viral marketing campaign for the movie in Los Angeles caught the attention of social media for all the wrong reasons.   James Corden, Billy Porter, Idina Menzel and Cabello were recorded closing out an intersection in Los Angeles as they and a handful of backup dancers sang along and danced to Jennifer Lopez’s “Let’s Get Loud.”   In a video posted by one of the cars that were stopped for the event, the group of stars can be seen jumping for joy and singing in costumes that look plucked directly from the upcoming film. “America, you’re welcome to keep Corden. Yours, Great Britain,” one user joked.  “It would have been great if you didn’t block traffic to promote your movies. Some people aren’t privileged and lucky enough to get fame and money and have to go to work to make ends meet,” another user wrote.  “imagine having a terrible day and then on ur way home ur forced to watch camila cabello and james corden dance right in front of u..this would sent me over the edge,” another wrote.

Meghan’s Documentary Money Never Donated

Angela Levin is a senior journalist, royal commentator and biographer who is often invited on TV and radio shows to discuss the Royal family.  Levin, who is followed by more 15 million people on Twitter, is often seen criticizing Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle.  She recently retweeted some comments about the royal couple she received in replies on one of her retweets which contained  a video clip featuring Harry and Meghan talking to Jay-Z, Rihanna and Disney CEO.   The video was shared with a claim that Harry was seen asking Disney CEO to give his wife a job.  Angela Levin on Sunday retweeted a reply which demanded Meghan and Harry to explain where’s the money that Disney promised to donate to the Elephant charity for Meghan Markle’s voiceover. “They have said it was paid to the Sussex’s but the Elephant charity doesn’t seem to have received it,” said the Twitter post shared by Levin on her timeline.

Lisa Rinna Caught Skinny Dipping By Daughter

When Amelia Hamlin, 20, caught her parents, Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin, skinny-dipping in the hot tub, she did what any sensible person would do — she took a photo of them and posted it on her Instagram Story.  “I just caught my parents skinny dipping in the hot tub and idk if I’m traumatized or like if its [sic] cute,” she wrote as the photo’s caption on Saturday. The photo, which was taken from afar, shows Rinna, 58, and Hamlin, 69, leaning over the edge of a hot tub looking straight at Amelia’s camera. Though you can’t see their nude bodies, Rinna is wearing a large brimmed hat while her husband left on his jewelry for the dip. The family of three are currently vacationing together at a lake house, according to several social media posts.
********If you’re skinny dipping, you must do it as far away from your kids as possible!!!

Adam Levine Not Angry With Olivia Rodrigo

Maroon 5’s Adam Levine believes Olivia Rodrigo deserves the benefit of the doubt when it comes to accusations she copied other artists while making her chart-topping debut album, “Sour.”  He explained that writing music is “tricky” and artists sometimes “rip something off inadvertently.”  “It’s a natural thing for it to happen, and sometimes it gets ugly and sometimes it’s warranted that people take legal action,” he explained on his Instagram Story on Friday.  “Sometimes it’s not warranted that people take legal action,” he added. “And I think there’s definitely become more of a gray area that’s reared its ugly head these days.”  His defense of Rodrigocame one day after it was revealed that Paramore’s Hayley Williams and Joshua Farro were retroactively added to the writing credits of her hit single “Good 4 U.” The decision came after fan-made mashups of Paramore’s “Misery Business” and Rodrigo’s “Good 4 U” went viral on social media because of how eerily similar the songs are.  Levine went on to refer to Robin Thicke and Pharrell’s “Blurred Lines” lawsuit from 2015, in which Marvin Gaye’s family won a $7.3 million settlement when a jury agreed that the hit song plagiarized Gaye’s “Got To Give It Up.”

Video Game Projected On Vegas Building

The makers of video game Garena Free Fire broke two Guinness World Records by projecting a giant game on the side of a Las Vegas resort building.  The team behind Garena Free Fire, a battle royale game for mobile platforms, celebrated the game’s fourth anniversary by projecting a round on the side of the Tropicana Hotel’s Club Tower.  The projected screen measured 46,733.65 square feet, more than doubling the 19,090-square-foot record set by Xbox and Destiny 2: Beyond Light in December 2020.  The display involved 1.6 million lumens of light, setting a new record for the largest number of lumens ever created by a projector array.  See the video HERE.

Lost Dog Turns Up 300 Miles Away

An Alabama woman was reunited with her missing dog after three years, thanks to the canine being lured into another woman’s car with corn dogs.  Dixie Greenwell, of Huntsville, said she has been searching for her dog, Charming, ever since he disappeared nearly three years ago.  “We couldn’t find him. I’ve always had a little bit of faith. I never felt like he was fully gone,” Greenwell told WALA-TV.  There was no sign of Charming until a woman named Faith recently spotted a stray canine wandering around a Marathon gas station in Baldwin County — more than 300 miles from Greenwell’s home — and used corn dogs to lure the dog into her car.  Faith took the dog to Silverhill Vet Clinic, where he was scanned for a microchip and identified as Charming.  Greenwell said the reunion highlights the importance of microchipping pets.

The Rock Has A Doppelganger

A Morgan County, Ala., sheriff’s lieutenant has gone viral in a recent TikTok comparing him to movie star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.   “Look at him!” the TikTok user exclaimed. “You cannot tell me that is not Mr. Dwayne.”  It started after a Walmart employee told another officer he “wanted to meet [the] Deputy that people say looks like ‘The Rock,’” according to the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.  Lt. Eric Fields, the lookalike, was happy to oblige and snapped a picture, generating the social media stir.  “It’s always been a running joke of people saying I resemble the Rock or… Vin Diesel,” Fields shared in an interview with Fox affiliate WBRC, “and I just go with it.”  His wife got a kick out of the flattering comparison, too: “She loves it,” Fields said with a relaxed posture and ear-to-ear grin, just like him.

Florida Man Busted For Killing Gator

A Florida man was operating a tractor mower when he intentionally struck an alligator and a nest of eggs, authorities said.  The attack came to light thanks to a witness who recorded the June 10 incident in Daytona Beach and shared the footage with investigators, according to an arrest report obtained by local media this week. A two-month probe by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has since resulted in felony charges against the suspect, identified as Steven Dariff.  The shocking video shows the man clearing brush around a pond when he dropped the mower blades on the alligator in what initially appeared to be an attempt to scare it off, reported Thursday. But the driver hit the animal again after it crawled back onto the bank, the video suggests.  Dariff also destroyed several gator eggs from a nearby nest, authorities said.  Officers were called to the scene shortly after the incident and found the mortally wounded alligator in the pond. The animal had to be euthanized.  See the video HERE.

The Biggest Home Organizing Mistakes People Make

Huffington Post

Buying Containers Before Decluttering

“One of the most common mistakes that I’ve seen people make when organizing their homes is buying organizing tools (containers, gadgets, labels, etc.) before they sort and purge. Sorting your belongings into trash, donate, and keep categories is not just to help you get rid of unnecessary or unwanted items. It also serves the purpose of helping you to realize not only what you have, but also how much of it you actually have.” ― Carolyn Rogers, professional organizing consultant at Neat Nerd Solutions

“People purchase items to ‘get organized’ without engaging in a few good de-cluttering sessions! It’s almost as if folks believe that it’s the product that will ‘get and keep’ you organized, and not a dramatic shift in habits, behaviors, or relationships to the stuff and space that will actually increase the likelihood that you will find success as an organized person when you don’t have a lot of stuff to keep track of.” ― Regina Lark, professional organizer at A Clear Path

Not Taking Measurements

“When it comes to organizing, size matters. This is especially true if you’re seeking a specific aesthetic. Those super cute baskets don’t look the same if they are too large and hanging off of the shelf where you planned for them to reside. Or an under-sink storage item that doesn’t actually fit under the sink is not useful. How about the Christmas decoration containers that are too small or you didn’t buy enough to hold all of your decorations. Be sure to obtain measurements for both the space and the item(s) that you plan to occupy it.” ― Rogers

“Please don’t eyeball a shelf or a closet or a drawer and guesstimate what kind of bin or helpful divider or hanging pocket shoe rack might fit. Measure the hell out of any drawer or door or shelf before ordering online or in person. Width, depth, height are your friends and so is a tape measure.” ― Jeni Aron, professional organizer at Clutter Cowgirl

Being Overly Ambitious

“People often bite off more than they can chew and get totally overwhelmed. Instead of tackling ‘your whole closet,’ start with a section of shoes or the dresser. Keeping the projects small and manageable will keep things from feeling too overwhelming.” ― Tova Weinstock, professional organizer at Tidy Tova

“A common challenge when organizing at home is being overly ambitious. Instead of creating mini-projects and taking small steps, people try to do too much at once. This can be de-motivating, debilitating, cause burnout, and prevent them from reaching their organizing goals.” ― Linda Samuels, professional organizer at Oh, So Organized

“Don’t burn out by devoting an entire weekend on a project. I break my sessions up into three-hour blocks. It can be tiring and emotionally draining work depending on the project. Do smaller bursts of work so that you keep your motivation and energy going. Set a timer if you have to and take lots of breaks.” ― Aron

Not Paring Down

“A typical challenge people encounter with home organization is underestimating the power of the edit. Before deciding the best way to organize a space, it is essential to release those things you no longer need, want, or use, so you can create ‘homes’ for the keepers.” ― Samuels

“I’ve had clients hold on to ‘mementos’ ― broken, torn, and/or nonfunctional items ― and keep old cords even when they don’t know what device the cord connects too.” ― Nicole Arroyo, professional organizer at Neatly Nic

Getting Too Fixated On Instagram

“It’s not uncommon that people will try to force popular organizing solutions into their life rather than use the ones that work best for them. While you may need to make slight adjustments to your lifestyle and daily routines in order to be and stay more organized, you want to select the solutions that work best for your life, not that look the best on Instagram.” ― Jeffrey Phillip, professional organizer and interior designer

“Most of the home organizing photos that are shown on Instagram are staged. In real life, no one has rainbow clothes (or only one color clothing), rainbow food in the refrigerator, or rainbow anything. If you look closely at the before and after pictures of pantries on Instagram, for example, you’ll find that few of the products are the same. When you look at refrigerator photos on Instagram, there are no leftovers, milk, or juice. You can either organize a space or stage a space for a picture.” ― Barbara Reich, professional organizer at Life Organized

“People tend to purchase organizing supplies for their ‘cuteness’ versus whether they will actually use it or not! When my team is called in to help a client ‘get organized,’ we see a LOT of organizing products that are unused, poorly used, or used-to-overflowing.” ― Lark

“Don’t compare your home or space to someone else or a catalog look. Organizing is about functionality. While the visual appeal comes with it, that’s not the goal. The goal is to maximize space, minimize stress and save time. So systems need to be centered around that and not just making it look pretty.” ― Pooja Naik, organizing consultant at Organizing With You, Inc.

Storing Everyday Items In Inconvenient Locations

“Don’t put everyday items in hard-to-reach places. Instead, keep items you use all of the time close by.” ― Sarah Giller Nelson, owner of Less Is More Organizing Services

Overfilling Spaces With Containers

“A common pitfall to avoid is overfilling spaces and containers. A good organizing system is easy to access and has room to grow. If you have to stuff items to fit them in the designated location, you are likely to become frustrated and the system will fail.” ― Seana Turner, founder of The Seana Method

Getting Hung Up On Making Decisions

“That’s all clutter is: postponed decisions. If your gut is telling you to hold onto it, then hold onto it. This is not the only opportunity you have let go of an item. There is always the second-round edit. Keep it moving!” ― Julie Naylon, professional organizer at No Wire Hangers

Dumping Everything Out At Once

“Don’t dump everything out! That will create a massive, scary mess. Instead, work on one area at a time and put things back as you go.” ― Weinstock

“Once we taste the satisfaction of organizing, the overachiever in us may be tempted to take on the entire house at once! Our success fills us with an energy that makes us feel like we can conquer an entire world of unorganized closets, drawers, and pantries. But soon after pulling everything out, our energy starts to wane and we may find ourselves in what looks like a disaster zone. We then have to resist the urge to stuff everything back into those closets, drawers and pantries to eliminate the overwhelm of visual chaos. Instead, we should try to pace ourselves and harness that fiery energy.” ― Kellie Powell, lead professional organizer and chief operating officer of Dexterous Organizing

“Don’t take everything out of a space. If the space is large, you may end up with things all over the place and then not have time to put them away properly. I advise taking items out one at a time. What will be discarded or donated, should get placed in a separate place. Then, when you are left with only what you’ll keep, you can take it out and determine where things will go.” ― Reich

Not Labeling After Organizing A Space

“You think you’ll remember that you put holiday decorations in a box at the top of the closet. You won’t. Get a big Sharpie or a label maker and clearly note what you’ve put where.” ― Zaslow

“The best way to ensure that a space is maintained is by labeling everything, so there’s no question of where everything belongs.” ― Reich

Allowing Too Much Time In Between Organizing Sessions

“It’s easy to lose momentum and backtrack on progress so it’s important to have consistency, even if it’s a little bit everyday until you achieve your organizing goals.” ― Naik

Putting Unrelated Items In Bins

“I often see people putting unrelated things in a bin and calling it organized. While they have put the items away so that their home is neat and tidy, they haven’t separated and categorized the items in an organized way. This stops them short of the benefits of organization such as saving time and frustration as well as being able to more easily retrieve and put away the item(s) they’re looking for.” ― Phillip

Organizing More Than One Space At A Time

“Let’s say you are organizing your desk and you find something that really belongs in the kitchen junk drawer. You walk over to put it in that drawer only to realize that it needs decluttering, too. As you are decluttering space No. 2, you find something that belongs in your room. You go to put it away in your closet, find there is no space in there, then start organizing that area, too. Now you have three organizing projects going at once, are running out of time, and are too overwhelmed to know what to do next. Instead, as you begin your organizing project, grab a bin or laundry basket to collect ‘move elsewhere’ items. Only after you are done with the first space should you attempt to put the ‘move elsewhere’ items in their respective homes.” ― Nelson

Piling Items To Be Donated In A Corner

“Resist the urge to simply pile donations in a corner to be disposed of ‘later.’ Move items out to their final destination right away. Otherwise, you are likely to second guess your decisions and suffer unnecessary doubt. Alternatively, you may become so accustomed to seeing the piles that you stop noticing them, abandoning them to take up space for extended periods of time.” ― Turner

Creating Systems That Don’t Have An ‘Exit Strategy’

“We are always accumulating things, but the amount of space in our houses is fixed. While it is very satisfying to have homes for every item you own, if you don’t continually edit your collections, your home will start to feel cluttered. Buy the clothes you need and love, but also keep a donation bag at the foot of your closet for those you don’t. Create a paper management system, but once a document no longer serves its purpose don’t feel obliged to keep it around because you made a file folder for it.” ― Nelson

Overthinking Everything

“People over-categorize. Keep it simple and don’t make your categories so complex that you can’t keep up with it. Simple systems will not only benefit you but everyone else in your home. When I’m working with a client where there is excess I always create a ‘back stock’ area. A great example of this is office supplies. You don’t have to keep every pen you own on your desk.” ― Naylon

Not Getting The Other Inhabitants On Board

“When you’re living or working alone, being organized is a lot easier! When you live with a spouse/partner/roommate it takes some joint effort and accountability. And when you have kids (at any age) it can sometimes feel impossible and never-ending. Same goes for being organized at work. There has to be some level of joint expectation and priority of what the environment should look like. Similarly, the systems that are set up need to work for everyone involved so that they can follow it. For example, taking children’s height into consideration when creating a mudroom so that they can easily hang up their jackets and book bags without asking someone else.” ― Melissa Levy, founder of Declutter + Design

Failing To Maintain

“Although cleaning and organizing are two completely different things, they do have one important thing in common… maintenance! We never want to make the mistake of thinking that organizing is a one and done undertaking. Just as we cannot expect our homes to stay spotless after one day of valiant efforts to clean, with no daily plan for upkeep; we also cannot expect that our earnest organizing efforts will be met with success without some form of maintenance. Maintenance isn’t difficult. It can take as little as 10 minutes a day. We can follow an organized system of simply returning things to their proper places daily. This maintenance will make organization routine, refreshing, and long lasting!” ― Powell

“Once you get organized, it’s just as important to put emphasis on how you’re going to stay organized. It’s not a one and done. When someone isn’t interested in this part, I can tell that they won’t be able to stay organized in the long run. Being organized takes consistent effort.” ― Levy

Putting Off Asking For Help

“A typical challenge with home organization is when people get stuck, they delay reaching out for help from a friend, family member, or professional. The clutter and disorganization increase for months, years, or decades. Their procrastination causes overwhelm and strain on emotional energy.” ― Samuels
