Highlights of the Week!

Beyoncé: The singer was hot topic this week after releasing her new single Formation on Saturday, performing said song during halftime at the Super Bowl on Sunday and announcing a world tour right after. Formation raised eyebrows but it is an inspirational song for many black women who relate to the message the song sent out. My favorite article on the song is Beyonce as Conjure Woman reclaiming the magic of Black Lives that Matter by Prof. Janell Hobson. I’m personally not a huge fan of Beyoncé but I love her message of female power and beauty. You can watch the artsy video right here: 

Trump and Bernie: Two days ago Trump and Sanders won at the New Hampshire primary! As the NY Times stated, “For the Democrats, Mr. Sanders’s popularity with liberals, young people, and some women and working-class white men has underscored potential vulnerabilities for Mrs. Clinton in the nominating contests ahead. She is now under enormous pressure to prove that her message can inspire and rally voters”. The Republican candidates are a little less predictable with the election moving on to South Carolina and it seems like Cruz and Trump are leading the pack with CRuz’s win in Iowa.

A. Einstein: As usual, Einstein is right! His theory on gravitational waves was proved right yesterday when scientists painstakingly dicovered tiny gravitational waves which could ultimately lead to evidence of the Big Bang!

Movies: Deadpool is getting released today in Canada and I’ve been waiting for this film since last year. Let me know in the comments below if you watched it and if you loved/hated it! No spoilers because I can’t watch it until next week. I watched PP and Zombies on Tuesday and I have to say, it was my third favorite rendition of PP (right the Colin Firth one and Lizzie Bennet Diaries). It had touching moments, shocking ones, wasn’t predictable at all and was completely (intentionally and unintentionally) hilarious!


Until next time,

Rochelle
