MONDAY

Singer, actress, and philanthropist Miley Cyrus sent the internet into a whirlwind earlier this week when she posted a letter she wrote to her newlywed husband, actor Liam Hemsworth, for his birthday. The iconic Hollywood couple have been on and off for the past decade before tying the knot last month. The letter talked about Cyrus’ favorite things about Hemsworth:

“The way you look at your family…your friends…at strangers…at life..” one line said.

“The look on your face when you receive good news and how you look AT the bad news.”

“Thank you for giving me the happiest days of my life.”

Twitter immediately blew up afterward, with younger male and female users gushing over the “iconic duo” and declaring their wishes for a similar love. Can you blame them?

 

TUESDAY

The newest Marvel trailer dropped on Tuesday for Spider-Man: Far From Home, set to release on July 5, 2019. Fans were eagerly awaiting the release of this trailer, considering the last Avengers movie ended leaving many fans, well…heartbroken, confused, and angry.

There are hundreds of theories surrounding these two movies, Spider-Man: Far From Home and Avengers: Endgame (coming April 26, 2019) have been flying since the release of Avengers: Infinity War last April. I think it is safe to say the Marvel will own the summer box office yet again.

 

WEDNESDAY

Shaving brand Gillette came out with a two minute commercial on Tuesday promoting the end of male behaviors such as harassment, enforcing sexism, and bullying, and the reaction from a storm of people may have proved itself as to why we needed it.

The advertisement shows men acting on these harmful behaviors and ends with showing other men stepping in and stopping it. Many celebrities and news anchors, such as Piers Morgan and James Wood, voiced their opinions for the commercial, saying they will never use Gillette products again and they should not have hopped on the supposed “hating men” train.

However, the positive effects of this advertisement overwhelmingly overpower the men upset that their privilege and egos were called out. The commercial shows a great example and lead for younger boys to see and learn from, as well as setting a new societal standard, ultimately trying to end things such as rape culture, sexism, objectification, and abuse…which is the entire point.

FRIDAY

These are a few of my favorite…rings? Singer Ariana Grande took 2018 by storm and it looks like she is coming for 2019 also. Grande dropped her new single “7 Rings”, a 21st century lush life take on “My Favorite Things” from the Sound of Music. With it’s drop on Thursday night, the single has already gone viral and received endless praise from fans online.
