Biggest Pop Culture Imaginary Stories And Rumors

People are bored. When people are bored, they tend to come up with weird and wonderful conspiracy theories, often about those that in the spotlight.

Some of them are eerily convincing (I personally believe Michael Jackson is chilling on a beach in Hawaii somewhere) while some are outright wacky. Here are some of the best and funniest pop culture conspiracy theories that will have you scratching your head for the rest of the day.

Rihanna Can’t Wink

One of the lighter conspiracies on the list, Ben Henry created a Twitter thread on BuzzFeed in 2016 with all the evidence that Rihanna is incapable of winking. A series of Gifs seemed to be all the proof needed for this theory to take off.

No Wink

She may come close, but always fails to complete a proper wink. Whether that’s truly the case of she has just never been caught executing a solid wink on camera, she remains a total diva.

Born Robyn Rihanna Fenty – Rihanna’s middle name means “Sweet Basic” in Arabic.  An amazing choice for an unforgettable stage name. Although we all know her as Rihanna she says that when it comes to close family and friends she only every pays attention when they call her Robyn. She says that she hears people calling out Rihanna all the time, but Robyn will always be her family name.

She has a secret brother. That’s right, the island queen has a younger sibling that rarely is talked about. Rihanna AKA Robyn Fenty has a younger brother by the name of Rajad Fenty. Being that the singing sensation is always working hard whether it be with music or her makeup line, she hardly gets to spend time with family. When she does have time for the family, you can catch her living it up with her mom and dad she loves dearly and her younger brother, Rajad. The two are really close despite the restricted amount of time they get to spend together.

Riri can Take a Bow for not being all that crazy in the backstage demands department. Although her room backstage looks like the most delicious buffet you can get, including a variety of Cheetos (regular and hot), Oreos, Golden Grahams cereal, Cup Noodles, red and white wine, vodka, soda, Frappuccino’s, and garlic olives. About her demands before she performs she recently told Ellen that she goes by the fact that “You never know what mood you’re gonna be in”. for her, we guess the mood veers from hungry, to really hungry.

$1 Million Hair in Accessories

The life of a popstar includes lots of different hair accessories. Rihanna has her hair routine down to a science. She spends $1 million each year on her hair. The singer pays her stylist a daily retainer of $3,200. This means the stylist is available anytime, anywhere. She also spends $24,00 a week to maintain her various hairstyles, which have included pink hair, red hair, long tresses, curls, pixie cuts and many more. Since Rihanna makes at least three appearances a year, she’s willing to shell out megabucks to always look great. Although it seems excessive, when have you ever seen Rihanna with bad hair?

3 Vintage Star Pictures That Have Cool Written All Over Them

Looking at old photos of celebrities and stars is a lot of fun and brings back many images of days gone by.  Check these out and take a sentimental journey back in time. You will find some of your favorite stars from the 70s and 80s and others from the 50s. Come join us and just have fun!

These vintage cool photos are food for poster lovers. Each one of these pics can be easily used as a blownup poster that would rock any office or room. This Marilyn picture you see here, is one of many that belong on every person’s bucket list for room posters. It’s on mine, that’s for sure.

1955 Photoshoot With Marilyn And Cute Pup

This photograph was taken by Milton H. Green in 1955 for a Look Magazine’s editorial on Oriental Gowns.  The photograph was shot at his New York studio on March 28, 1955, along with this precious Pekinese puppy.

The staging area is also wonderful!  You can see an embroidered ottoman, a folding dressing screen, and an abundance of cushions.  He posed her dressed in an Oriental-style black robe while snuggling with the puppy.

Frank Sinatra gave Marilyn a gift because she loved animals. The gift was an adorable white fluffy dog named Mafia Honey, or Maf for short.  It was meant as a tongue-in-cheek gesture because of his alleged ties to the mafia!

Freddie Mercury And His Partner Jim Hutton, 1985

The world just was not the same after Freddie Mercury passed away from complications caused by AIDS in 1991.  Jim Hutton lived with Freddie over the last six years of his life.  He was there for Freddie through his illness up to the last day when he passed.

Jim Hutton was a hairdresser in his hometown in County Carlow, Ireland before ever meeting Mercury.  Shortly after they started dating, Hutton lived with Mercury in his Garden Lodge home where they stayed together until Mercury’s death.

Their relationship was long before anyone recognized same-sex marriage.  Although they were never officially married, they both wore wedding bands to show their devotion to each other.  Freddie Mercury died wearing his wedding band.

Stevie Nicks, A True Iconic Bohemian Beauty, 1970s

Gorgeous Stevie Nicks was the lead of Fleetwood Mac and the queen of rock in the 70s.  While Fleetwood Mac was constantly topping the charts, her personal life was a train wreck.

Between spending tons of money and partying, things got quickly out of control.  She said that during the recording of the Rumors album, she would carry a gram of cocaine in her boot.

Even though she tried to fight her cocaine addiction problem, it escalated during the 70s bringing turmoil and stress to the band.  At one point she had a hopeless affair with drummer Mick Fleetwood that was continually fueled by drugs.

In 1986, she got the scare of her life when a surgeon told her she had a very dangerous, large hole in her nose. He warned her that so much as one more hit of cocaine could be her last.

That hole in her nose could cause her brain to hemorrhage. That was enough to convince her to get into rehab.  That was her wake up call!  To the here and now, Fleetwood Mack is back up and on tour!

Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson meeting at the LA forum – 1980’s.

Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson formed a partnership in the 1980’s to work on three demos.  “There Must be More to Life than This” features vocals from both Freddie and Michael; Freddie released the song on the Queen album, Queen Forever.

While the song was written in the Hot Space sessions, it wasn’t finished.  Freddie Mercury would go on to release his own version as a solo work on his 1985 debut, Mr. Bad.  The other songs were “Victory,” which was later used as an album cover by the Jacksons, and “State of Shock,” which had Rolling Stones undertones.

Marvel and DC Characters in Real Life

Ryan Reynolds – Deadpool

Ryan Reynolds has had his misses, but he also had his hit in 2016.  He bombed miserably with The Green Lantern as well as his first Deadpool attempt in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.  Deadpool made up for all that, becoming the highest- grossing rated R movie ever.  Guardians of the Galaxy was funny, but Deadpool raised the bar.

Ryan Reynolds & Blake Lively

While Green Lantern was a box office flop, Ryan Reynolds can be thankful for the movie for one reason; meeting Blake Lively on set.  In 2012, the couple married and currently, have two daughters.  Blake Lively has also gone on to some box-office smashes like Café Society and The Age of Adaline.

The World’s Most Scary & Amazing Bridges

Some bridges are amazing feats of engineering built with some thought about how it looks, how it blends into nature, or the other way around. However, there are other bridges that are dangling obstacles of fear, made from whatever was on hand at the time.

We’ve put together a list of the world’s most dangerous and amazing bridges. Check it out:

Iya Kazurabashi Bridge – Japan

In Tokushima, Japan amazing bridges made of vines cross the Iya Valley’s Iya-gawa River. The Iya Kazurabashi bridge is exceptionally stomach clenching; made of wooden planks interwoven with vines, this may be one bridge too far for even the most adventurous explorer.

The “No Sugar Or Carbs” Baby. The Result Is Incredible

When Shannon Cooper gave birth to a baby girl she decided to raise her in a way that fit in with her lifestyle as a health and wellness coach.  Some parents might find this a little unorthodox but Shannon knew there was no manual to follow when it comes to raising kids.

Shannon decided that her daughter, who she named Grace, would be on a healthy eating plan which would include no sugar or carbs – not even one gram!  Grace is surviving on this radical diet – but what sort of effect did it have?

Plenty Of Opinionated People

Once the media and social network sites got ahold of this news there was plenty of negative feedback; in the media storm that followed even the experts condemned Shannon as a fanatic.  However, Shannon continued on her path and what happened with Grace is really the answer to all those folk who gave her such negative feedback at the start.

As soon as you have a child you soon find that when it comes to child rearing everyone has an opinion and can’t wait to ‘help’ by giving you their advice.  Many new parents lean on this and never really feel confident to make decisions about raising their own kids without first turning to someone else for input.  But Shannon decided to press ahead with what she believed was the right way to go.

Read here to find out just exactly what this incredible result was:

Celebs With Surprising Degrees

Celebrities seem to have it all, but we tend to underestimate them! Well, fear not! We are here to change that. Check out these stars with amazing, weird and sometimes funny degrees. Ready? Let’s begin…

Bradley Cooper: English

We wonder if Bradley had to take the same pill he took in the hit movie, Limitless, to achieve this degree. This handsome star graduated from Georgetown University (with honors) and apparently has a strong connection to English Literature.

Cooper reported to GQ that he remembers “crying actual tears” while reading Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet in the campus library (a little embarrassing) and that he also did his English Thesis on Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov. That’s right ladies, gorgeous and loves poetry!

Lisa Kudrow: Biology

Lisa Kudrow, or better known by her character in the highly addictive series, F.R.I.E.N.D.S, Pheobe. This starlet does a lot more that just run around singing ‘smelly cat’ to those who don’t want to listen. Lisa is a graduate from Vassar College. Once she had completed her degree, before pursuing an acting career, she spent a great deal of time working with her father in biology. Yes, biology.

Not only is this superstar a biologist and an actress but she is also incredibly impressive in languages. Lisa speaks both English and French. This goes to show how difficult acting can be, Phoebe has made an impression to all the F.R.I.E.N.D.S fans (which lets be honest, is definitely more than half of the world) that she is a silly, playful woman who seems to be aging backwards.

This new information (well new to us) only makes us love Phoebe more (her parents are going to have to accept that the name Lisa just ain’t gonna stick as well as Phoebe).

A bilingual biologist with great hair and she appears on our TV every time we miss her? Who needs friends when you have F.R.I.E.N.D.S?

Read on and be surprised!

Celebrity Splits Of 2018

Although 2018 was a lucky year for love with some Hollywood couples, for many it was the year they said goodbye to their relationships, new and old. Take a look as we count down all the celeb breakups so far of this year. Just take a look at these two once love birds, Robert De Niro, and Grace Hightower. Well, they were lovebirds. FOR 20 YEARS!

The two decide to call it quits after 20 years of marriage. A close source to the couple said to People Magazine: “Sometimes things don’t work out the way you hope or want them to.”
They got married back in 1997 and have two kids, Elliott (20) and Helen Grace (6).

De Niro confirmed the split in a statement saying that it has been a “difficult but constructive process. We are entering a period of transition in our relationship which is a difficult but constructive process.”

He added to CNN : “I honor Grace as a wonderful mother and ask for privacy and respect from all as we proceed to develop our roles as partners in parenting.”

If you remember, this isn’t the first time they split. Back in 1999 De Niro filed for divorce, but they worked it out and even renewed their vows in 2004.
The last time they were seen together was at the Tony Awards in June 2018. De Niro has two kids from his previous wife Diahnne Abbott (1976 to 1988), Drena (47) and Raphael (42), and another two with his 1995 girlfriend Touki Smith, twins Aaron and Julian.

Paris Hilton & Chris Zylka.

The two got engaged in January 2018, and now, almost 11 months after that special date – they called it off. Not only the engagement but the whole relationship. The reports say that the relationship between Hilton, 37, and Chris, 33, “started to become off-kilter after about two years together.”

Hilton will continue to DJ while Chris will keep up his acting and art career. They began dating in early 2017.

One day after news broke about the breakup, it was also revealed that Chris wants the US$ 2 million engagement ring back. He is, by the way, entitled to the ring because under California law, if she decided to break it up, Chris can get the ring back.

Pete Davidson & Ariana Grande

Their whirlwind romance and engagement ended as quickly as it started. TMZ shocked fans when they announced the couple split on October 14th. According to sources, the split occurred a few days before it was reported, and no bad blood was spilled.

Rather it ended with both parties acknowledging that it simply was not the right time for their relationship to take off,” TMZ explained, though added, “the two aren’t ruling out the possibility of anything in the future.”

Celebrity After-40 Mom’s

The topic of infertility is something that has been explored since the dawn of time. However, different misconceptions, myths and advice have come from the research done, thus leaving people to wonder whether this is something that can be fixed, avoided, or endured.

The Office of Women’s Health at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Recourses released a statistic that one in every ten couples aged 15-44, have trouble conceiving. Moreover, it is obvious that the older you are, the more difficult it is to conceive, research shows that about a third of all couples, which include women over 35, have problems with fertility.

This is a shocking reality which can cause many families to lose hope. However, we want our dear readers to stay positive thus we have compiled a list of celebrities who have managed to conceive during their 40’s.

Big names such as Eva Longoria, Christie Brinkley and Janet Jackson are just a few of some of our ladies who have managed to fall pregnant post the age of 40. Bare in mind, most of these women have different lifestyles to the majority of us and therefore it is important that we mention, these are the rare exceptions.

Meaning, most couples are not able to afford full-time help, or are able to go without working in order to care for their children, or are able to undergo the new procedures available to assist infertility. One has to remain completely relevant to their situation.

Now that we’ve gotten through the serious stuff, let’s start gossiping about our favorite mama bears who conceived post the age of 40…
