Aca-Awkward!

Just two years after their gorgeous outdoor wedding, “Pitch Perfect” stars Anna Camp and Skylar Astin have separated. When their relationship began in June of 2013, all of us were decidedly annoyed that he had chose his absolutely beautiful co-star and not us (or was that just me?) However, paradise seems to have ended quicker than the “Pitch Perfect” franchise itself. On Friday, April 19, the former couple issued a comment to People saying: “We can confirm that we have decided to separate, and this decision was made mutually and amicably. We kindly ask for privacy as we navigate this transition.” Now that Skylar Astin is getting divorced, do you think it’d be aca-awkward if I slid into those DMs? Let me know.

Orange is the new (Kodak) Black

The prodigal rapper has returned and with a few felonies under his belt to boot! After some shady business with a cancelled concert on Wednesday night and the mysterious disappearance of Kodak Black, the gossip websites have been in a tizzy trying to find him to get the scoop. Where in the world is Kodak Black? Well, Mr. Black was at the Lewiston-Queenston International Bridge border getting arrested for the possession of drugs and guns with an intent to bring them into the country. Yikes. However, the real kicker of the story is that Black is now blaming his GPS for accidentally directing him into Canada. You can’t make this shit up, people.

April showers bring more drama

Can’t this just end already? The two most overrated people in the celebrity sphere seem to duking it out over the coveted date “April 26”. On April 13, Taylor Swift posted a very vague picture of a glittering, pink, diamond-encrusted heart with the caption “4.26”. Now that sounds like a teaser for an important event; I don’t think she posted that because she finds the number combination aesthetically pleasing. In a post to her own instagram, which has curiously been deleted, Kim Kardashian, law student and longtime frenemy of Swift, announced the launch of her new fragrance collection collab with sister, Kylie Jenner, which will be released on, you guessed it, April 26. Now, this could all just be some great coincidence, and it will all blow over soon. However, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t ready for another diss-track from the queen of “writing about your feelings and exposing everyone along the way”. So we’ll see.
