highest-earning-youtube-stars

For the first time ever, Forbes has ranked the top-earning YouTube stars. They might not be household names, but these online personalities rake in the money for pretty much just talking. For instance, the top earner Felix Kjellberg aka PewwDiePie pulled in $12 million for his expletive-heavy video game commentaries.

“The list measures earnings before subtracting management fees and taxes. Our figures are based on data from Nielsen, IMDB and other sources, as well as on interviews with agents, managers, lawyers, industry insiders and the stars themselves,” according to Forbes.

Check out the 13 DIY filmmakers who have made millions doing what members of older generations may consider more play than work.

playboy-magazine-no-nudity

The Playboy that your father and grandfather remember will be no more. The iconic publication announced it’ll stop publishing nude photos in the magazine. The accessibility to online pornography most probably played a factor in this decision. I suppose, Playboy, from now on, will truly be all about the articles.

The first issue of Playboy began its impact on popular culture in 1953. Marilyn Monroe snagged the first ever cover. The revamped version will still feature provocative photos of women, but more PG-13 than full-on cooch. The all-new Playboy hits newsstands in March 2016.

new-hercules

Even the son of Zeus is jumping on the man bun bandwagon. I will say, he’s one who can pull off the hair trend.

Marvel recently tweeted a new Hercules variant cover drawn by Matt Wilson and Russell Dauterman. The illustration is a gay nerd’s fantasy come true. Hercules is one big beefy scruffy harness-wearing daddy. Check him out in all his glory below. Drooooooool!!!

walk-of-no-shame

Ain’t no shame in her game!!! And bravo for that.

Amber Rose holds her head up high as she heads home after a night of casual banging in a hilarious new clip for Funny or Die. Rather than being chastised by the townspeople, Rose is applauded for her choices and for owning it. The mayor even gives her a key to the city.

The video also promotes Amber’s upcoming Slut Walk in LA on October 3. It’s in response to a Toronto police officer who told a crowd of college women that if they wanted to avoid sexual assault, they shouldn’t dress like sluts.

Orange Is The New Black and How To Get Away With Murder star, Matt McGorry makes a brief cameo at the end of the clip. Check it out below. My favorite reaction of the bunch is the little boy with his mother. LOL.

mariah-carey-game-of-war-commercial

Ever since it was announced Mariah Carey signed on to endorse Game of War: Fire Age last June, I’ve been anxious to see the commercial. I’ve never played the game before, nor do I intend to, but I was curious to see how Carey’s ad would differ from the ones featuring Kate Upton.

You know which ones I’m referring to. You’ve no doubt been bombarded by numerous ads for the notorious strategy mobile game. I sometimes have nightmares of Upton riding her horse into battle 😉

Who knew the ‘elusive chanteuse‘ was such a fierce dragonslayer? Mimi works that fiery crossbow like no other. As if the commercial wasn’t cheesy enough, the inclusion of Carey’s hit “Hero” puts it completely over the top. You’ll never think of the ballad in the same way again. Check out the ridiculous SLASH awesome promo below.

piano-playing-dog

Forget Mozart, Bach, Chopin, Rachmaninoff, Beethoven or any other great classical pianist. They have nothing on this adorable dog who can tickle the ivories like no other. The precious little thing can even howl along in tune. A musical prodigy no doubt.

A friend recently sent me this clip and I simply had to share it. I instantly fell in love and immediately inspired to train my little westie, Briggs 😉 Check out the too-cute-for-words video below.

christina-applegate-meryl-streep-spoof

If this wasn’t a Funny or Die spoof, I would’ve almost believed it. I wouldn’t put anything past Lifetime. The network has a history of producing cheesy tell-alls about celebrities and beloved shows. But touching the great Meryl Streep would be sacrilegious.

Christina Applegate channels Streep in her most iconic films including The Devil Wears Prada, Mamma Mia, Kramer vs Kramer and Julie and Julia to name a few. However, my favorite part is when the former Married With Children actress plays Meryl finding out she hasn’t been nominated for an Oscar. Her impression is spot-on.

Check out the hilarious clip below. The faux bad reviews are everything! ‘It’s not like she’s even trying!!!’

president-obama-running-with-bear-grylls

Bear Grylls has already convinced the likes of Kate Winslet, Channing Tatum and Zac Efron to trek through the wilderness. The 41-year-old British adventurer has scored his biggest get yet. President Obama will tape an episode of Running Wild With Bear Grylls during his three-day trip to Alaska.

Obama will reportedly hike on a melting glacier, talk to a local fisherman in the remote coastal village of Dillingham all in an effort to promote climate change action in the region. “As long as I’m President, America will lead the world to meet the threat of climate change,” Obama recently stated. The historic trip will also see Obama visiting the Arctic. He’ll be the first sitting US President to do so.

In other related Alaska news, Obama revealed on Sunday that Mount McKinley will undergo a name change. For all you trivia buffs, keep reading to find out.
