Justin Bieber and his supermodel wife Hailey Bieber had a secret wedding ceremony back in September of 2018 to officially get hitched. Now they want to have an actual wedding ceremony, but they plan to keep it small. The couple are looking at fall dates, and the location still has not been decided upon by the power couple. While we expect the wedding to be of the smaller variety, it is hard to know how small is small for a couple of their pedigree. Those details should unfold in the coming weeks. Bieber has been focusing on his mental health over the last few months and on being the best father and husband he can be. He has not had a new album in a few years but recently just dropped a new song with Ed Sheeran called “Love Yourself”. The title of the song certainly fits in line with Bieber’s new focus on mental health. For the Biebers, having a second wedding should be no big deal, while the normal couple would be hurting just to pay for one! We’ll keep monitoring the unfolding situation with the Bieber Wedding “take two”. Check back in for more updates.
Singer Bebe Rexha posted on Instagram and Twitter that she is being called “too old to be sexy”. In a rather, sexy, picture on her instagram that shows her in her bra and undies with a black and white filter, she goes on to share the story of a Male Exec saying she was too old to be posting sexy pictures. The post was rather long and direct and touched on her current age (almost 30) and how she is tired of women who get older being labeled as such. Fans naturally showed their support to the social media posts, popping in with positive comments and women empowerment dialogue. Clearly Bebe is trying to do the same with her recent comments. In one of the captions she wrote “Empower women to love their bodies instead of making girls and women feel less by their size”. Age truly is only a number, and it is how you feel that is most important. There is no doubt Rexha is feeling good about turning 30 and does not care what people think about her age in regards to her brand and image. She closed her post by saying. “TRUST ME, I’m a much better lover than I was 10 years ago.”
Looking to make a couple extra bucks for a family vacation, pay the bills, or having some extra gas money? Well, you could look into selling some old VHS tapes. Yup, thats right, VHS tapes have carved out a little market for themselves in the online trading world of eBay, and you will be shocked for how much some of these tapes are going for. Apparently out of Australia a report stated that a 1999 Special Edition copy of Mulan in mint condition was sold for over $20,000! A set of seven Disney classics, Black Diamond edition, which included Bambi and Aladdin sold for $18,000. A 1990 VHS of the Little Mermaid sold for $15,000 and 1992 version of Beauty and the Beast Black Diamond edition sold for $10 G’s. New data has revealed that almost 250,000 VHS tapes have been sold online over the last year, and over $3 million dollars has been spent on VHS tapes in that time. Why the sudden spike in value and demand for these classic films. Well for starters, Disney has been cranking out remakes of their old movies like Fords on an assembly line. This alone has raised the value of older tapes that will never be produced again in the VHS versions like the originals. While very few people these days even own a VHS player, that shouldn’t stop you from trying to make a couple extra bucks selling the tapes online.

Disney’s remake of Aladdin hit the theaters earlier this year was a massive success across the globe. Grossing over $1 Billion dollars, the popularity of Aladdin has Disney thinking that the people are looking for more. With numbers like those, it is hard to disagree with their stance.

The recent resurgence of the Golden Era films from Disney has been based around remaking older titles and not adding sequels films. However in this case, it could make sense. The Will Smith Genie element will be a big draw to bring viewers back in, along with the curiosity of what new angle they will take with the Aladdin title.

Producer Dan Lin had this to say.

“We certainly when we first made the movie wanted to just make the best movie we could and let audiences tell us if they wanted to see more. And I would say resoundingly audiences want to see more. And so we feel like there’s more story to tell.”

While nothing has been officially revealed, it sounds like the powers that be in the Aladdin franchise are toying with the idea of more for the title.

It has also been rumored that a live action Bambi remake is in the works. After seeing the success of The Lion King, Disney will produce the 1940’s classic Bambi in a similar fashion. Talking CGI animals, mixed into live action backgrounds, and the possibility of an actual human being in the film are among the latest highlights around the underground buzz. Disney has been on an all out blitz of remakes, and Bambi is one of the remaining few titles Disney still has to produce.

Check back in for more Disney news as some of these new rumors unfold and let us know your thoughts on some of the latest Disney buzz!

With Fox being bought out by Disney in 2018, the rights to the Marvel franchise went to Disney. At the time, Marvel still had shows like Luke Cage, Daredevil, and the Punisher among others streaming on Netflix. Disney had only just announced at the time that they were going to start a streaming service of their own (Disney+), and it’s unclear whether or not this announcement triggered Netflix to pull the plug on the Marvel series shows. Regardless of why Netflix pulled the plug, Marvel was not expecting it, or at least not expecting it so soon. Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb had this to say. “The hardest part was while the situation at Netflix, which I really can’t go into other than to say that we were blindsided and the things that were to come weren’t finished yet. We weren’t ready to announce that, so there was this space in between it, so it did look like maybe we were going to go out. Then suddenly, we were arising again like the Phoenix.” The Marvel shows will land back on Disney+ when it drops this November, however it doesn’t seem like they’re thrilled about how it all ended with the streaming giant Netflix.
Real Madrid is one of the biggest soccer clubs in the world, with a tremendous amount of pedigree, history, and money. They are known for purchasing the best players in the world, in their prime, for enormous fees, and it’s paid off with titles over the years, especially during the Christiano Ronaldo era. While this strategy has paid off with silverware, it hasn’t always left their financial situation in great standing, or their image for developing players. Like Real Madrid, Netflix is looking to buy up all the best players as well. It is just a different kind of player, the best titles and producers for streaming. In 2017 Netflix paid $100 million dollars for Grey’s Anatomy showrunner Shonda Rhimes who left ABC. They paid $300 million dollars for Ryan Murphy of American Horror Story and American Crime story, and now they have signed Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss for $200 million dollars. Their offseason signings over the last few years have commanded big money, and it is bad news for regular television. If Netflix continues to pry away the best talent from the TV world to the streaming world, the TV companies will struggle to fine adequate talent and while being able to compete with the deals Netflix is dishing out. We may be starting to see a shift away from the top shows airing on network television or subscription services such as HBO, and more of the big action taking place on streaming services such as Netflix.
As the streaming service world is starting to get a little more crowded with the likes of Disney+ joining Netflix and Amazon in the market, Apple is also getting into the space with their own service Apple TV+. Headline names should equate to more viewers, or at least that is the stance Apple is taking. The streaming service has not been released yet and details are still unclear, however it appears one of their first big programs will be called “The Morning Show”. Featuring actors such as Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston, and Steve Carell, the upcoming series will try and give a behind the scenes look at the world of major news television shows in a fictional dramedy. Steve Carell is no stranger to working a newsroom as he found himself acting in one during Bruce Almighty and Anchorman films. There is a teaser out for “The Morning Show” that can be found here. Check it out and let us know your thoughts on the new show coming to Apple+ this fall. The series has already been picked up for two seasons and the first will feature 10 episodes.

Fast Food has become as much of a culture norm in America as signing the Star Spangled Banner before a sporting event, or paying your taxes. It’s quick, it’s cheap, its tasty (for good or for ill), and they’re everywhere. Drive down any business highway and there’s a gas station, a fast food restaurant, and repeat, until you leave civilization.

Theres often debates on who is the best, who is the healthiest, what qualifies a restaurant to be a fast food restaurant, and so forth. The debates are never ending, nor are they ever settled. However, we figured we’d dive into the discussion by rating the Top 5 “In House Burgers” from the major fast food chains just to stir the proverbial pot. These are your traditional fast food drive in scenes that do not include the likes of a Five Guys or a Zinburger. We’re talking the old fashion greasy goodness, pull up, order, and go. With that said, here we go!

1. In and Out – The Double Double 

Not available nationwide, which is a crime, but none the less it holds the top spot. The burgers are the freshest, simplest, and most delicious in our opinion. They don’t overcomplicate things, and they do what they do best, best. If you’re ever on the west coast, In and Out is a must. After you try it for the first time, you’ll know why.

2. McDonalds – The Big Mac

Not available nationwide, which is a crime, but none the less it holds the top spot. The burgers are the freshest, simplest, and most delicious in our opinion. They don’t overcomplicate things, and they do what they do best, best. If you’re ever on the west coast, In and Out is a must. After you try it for the first time, you’ll know why.

3. Burger King – The Whopper

Two words, Mac Sauce. It’s nothing complicated, its essentially a combo of ketchup, mayo, and some other ingredients that we probably don’t want to know, but boy is it good. Double patty, extra bread, the pickles, and the crinkly lettuce, are all there for the sole purpose of complementing the best sauce in the game. For that reason alone, the Big Mac is #2 on the list.

4. Wendy’s – The Classic’s 

The name is powerful. It commands the idea of “A LOT”. It’s a whopping burger! Big, juicy, flame broiled, and littered with toppings including mayo, The Whopper has been a classic for decades, but outside of its history, the value is really in the name. We like it, but we don’t love it, so it hits #3 on the list.

5. White Castle – The Traditional Slider

The Classic Single, Double, and Triple are Dave’s signature burgers on the menu. They’re good, but as the chain’s signature burger, it’s not their best burger. Where as McDonalds and Burger King’s top burgers are the Big Mac and Whopper respectively, we’d argue that Wendy’s is more known for other items on their menu (Baconator, Junior Bacon Cheeseburger, etc.) more so than the classic recipes. For that reason, we have it 4th on this list.

The smallest burger on the list by far, but that’s not why it comes in at 5th out of 5. While the slider is a quick grab, and can be consumed in one bite, the taste isn’t great, the buns are usually doused in grease, and it almost always takes forever when waiting on a dozen at a drive through. You want a good late night munch, White Castle is a great move, but if you can choose between the aforementioned, it comes in 5th place 10 out of 10 times.

Let us know your “house special” burger thoughts in the comment section below. We don’t expect you to agree, we just want to hear why!
