You’d never know the challenges these kids face in and out of school by their big smiles but that’s what happens when Rihanna walks in a room. She traveled to Malawi, one of Africa’s poorest countries, to learn about the hurdles these children face.
“Joined by Former Australian Prime Minister and Board Chair of the GPE Julia Gillard and Global Citizen CEO Hugh Evans.

Foo Fighters released their first song in a couple years and the video will assure you some things don’t change. You can always count on fun with Foo. No word on their ninth studio album, but I’ll keep you posted.
Disclaimer: People Magazine may be a pseudo tabloid but I gotta give credit where credit is due. I’m not sure you can get any better than “Heavy Metal Gandalf”
And I’m serious about the nurse offer. This could be you Dave.
“In February 2017, French Montana found the inspiration for his upcoming “Unforgettable” music video after watching a dance video of Uganda’s Triplets Ghetto Kids on Youtube. He flew to Uganda in March to feature the kids in the video.
As soon as he landed in Uganda, he visited the Suubi Health Center – a small rural health clinic – where he met the founders, spoke with the community and learned about their work and the challenges people face, especially new moms and babies. He was completely moved by their journey and has committed to helping them.
French Montana has pledged the first $100K to help pay for ambulances, premature incubators, cribs and a blood bank for the community of Suubi. Now he challenges you to step up too! Your funds will go toward the construction of a maternity clinic serving thousands of mothers and babies.”
You didn’t/don’t have to go to USC or any college for that matter to appreciate Dr. Will Ferrell’s speech.
“For many of you who don’t have it all figured out, it’s okay. That’s the same chair I sat in. Enjoy the process of your search without succumbing to the result. Trust your gut. Keep throwing darts at the dartboard. Don’t listen to the critics and you will figure it out.”

Well maybe more people would realize you don’t need a tassel and a piece of paper to prove your intelligence?
Then again, I didn’t graduate so I wouldn’t know.
What I DO know?
The ideal Amazon banner ad to compliment a thoughtful speech at a prestigious university.
Let me introduce you to your Monday moment of zen.
LCD Soundsystem performed a new song on Saturday Night Live but the song was no match for the guy dancing in the background. Uproxx says he’s the keyboardist but isn’t Nancy the keyboard player? and when you look closely I’m not sure if he’s even playing anything? That switchboard isn’t an instrument is it? Bigger question, was he hammin’ it up or are those his genuine moves?
Lastly, is LCD’s Dance Man worthy of This Hall of Showstoppers?
