Have you listened to any Melanie Martinez songs? Yes? No? If you have, however, you know how original, creative, intelligent, witty, and different she is. Her music is very unique. In her one and only album Crybaby, she sings metaphorically through songs about love, murder, and being crazy or insane.

Recently, her former friend, Timothy Heller, posted some unbelievable things about Melanie, accusing her of assault. Melanie later denied the accusations. Fans exploded. Some sticking with Melanie, and some moving to Timothy´s side.

There were horrible videos uploaded to YouTube of people burning and throwing out their Crybaby merchandise. With some saying ¨In this house, we don´t support assaulters¨ as they burned their Crybaby items. More…

The Golden Globes have passed, and there has been a surprising amount of buzz around Oprah’s speech, as you may expect since Oprah is the first black woman to accept the Cecil B. DeMille award in the history of the Golden Globes. Men and women of all colors were moved by what she said during her acceptance speech, and some have surprisingly gone far enough to say she should run for president.

It is only natural to be curious what exactly she said that got her this much attention. To see for yourself, you can watch it in its entirety here; Oprah’s Golden Globes Speech.

Oprah used her speech as an opportunity to speak out about the rights of women, and about how the sexual abuse and harassment not only in Hollywood but in the world, is beyond toxic. She obviously believes that the harassment and assault discussed lately is disgusting, and a lot of people are happy to hear someone finally talking about it. More…

It seems like we’re moving on from the memes and internet trends of 2017 and moving on to new ones. It’s kind of sad to get rid of some of the greatest ones. Internet memes have taken a huge rise in the past few years, as well as fidget spinners, slime, and so many more trendy teen toys.

One of these huge internet memes of 2017 was a vine. Yes, we all know that Vine died a long time ago. However, one of these vines, “Guacamole” seems to be carrying on in its popularity and becoming more and more popular by the weeks.

What is it? Well, it is kinda strange. All it is is an old woman singing a song about guacamole. Obviously, Vines are short so it’s only about five seconds long. If you want to watch it, here you go..

Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo Switch? 1

Kevin Luu

Nintendo has made two consoles of the twenty-first century that exploded the stores with people rushing in to buy them. One of the consoles is from June 2010, while the other was released in March 2017. What is it? The Nintendo 3DS and the Switch of course! Lots of people say one is better, but others disagree. So which one is better: the Switch or the 3DS?

The 3DS is smaller than the Switch. Its ability to change to the third dimension is what really makes the 3DS enjoyable for all ages.

The Nintendo 3DS was first introduced in February 2011, and it was a successor after Nintendo 2DS and Nintendo 3DS XL. There are some accessories people can use to help visual gameplay or to have a bigger memory to store more games. More…

Why So Many People Miss the Old Disney Channel 6

Katie Mills

Some people were Disney fans, and some people were Nickelodeon fans. However, why is nobody talking about how the old Disney Channel was many times better?

Many people grew up watching the Disney Channel classics. Children’s lives were full of “That’s So Raven,” “Lizzie McGuire,” “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” and “Even Stevens.” These shows were always relatable and spread good and positive messages.

However, these days Disney Channel is filling up their show list with a mess of random shows like, “Bizzardvark” and “Bunk’d” and “Stuck in the Middle.” Sadly, these shows are less relatable and less satisfying in general. More…

Innapropri-IT? 3

Everyone knows of the phenomenon It by Stephen King. The original film was produced in 1990, but times have changed a lot since then. Special effects are more advanced, and the characters are far more complex in the remake.

Pennywise has a far more sinister edge, marked by piercing yellow eyes and contorted movements, while it made the 1990’s Pennywise look cartoonish. Bill Skarsgård who plays Pennywise, said he even frightened the kids who were cast.

In addition, it came out close to Halloween, which made it even spookier.
