Showing your parents a meme is always something of a risk, especially since there’s a fair chance that they’ll have no idea what you’re talking about. I think we can all agree that having to explain a joke for an hour after you’ve told it kinda ruins the whole concept.
This Kim Kardashian Meme is going quite popular in moms. People are showing their moms and it’s not going as planned
So, I guess you could say this tweet is what’s scientifically known as A Big Mood. I would retweet it a hundred times if I could.
But people are now sending this tweet to their moms and it’s going about as well as you’d expect. It all started when Twitter user @MemzIsLithenin posted their mom’s reaction to the tweet.
Mariah Carey? Is that you?
With the tweet picking up more than 100,000 likes in a day, other people soon began sending the tweet to their moms and the replies are just so wholesome.
It turns out that a lot of moms just don’t know who Kim Kardashian is.
But for some people, things really took a left turn…
Bob Vylan say music industry figures told them “scarily relevant” new EP ‘We Live Here’ was “too extreme”
Bob Vylan have called out the music industry for telling them their “scarily relevant” new EP ‘We Live Here’ was “too extreme”.
The duo – comprised of Bobby Vylan and Bobb13 Vylan – shared the record on Bandcamp today (June 5) in response to “the climate we are living in right now”.
Speaking in an Instagram video, Bobby Vylan explained the EP had been finished for “at least six months” but the band had struggled to find support for it within the music industry. “We’ve taken it to everybody – PR, magazines, blogs, radio pluggers, playlists, everybody – and they all said the same thing: ‘We love it, but it’s too extreme. The content and the topics that you’re dealing with are too extreme.’”
He continued to list some of the subjects broached on the tracks, including “police brutality, racism, the widening gap between the rich and the poor, and fearmongering in the media”. “There’s a Grammy-nominated artist from the US featured on this and they all still told us it’s too extreme,” Vylan noted. Jason Aalon Butler of Fever 333, who were nominated for Best Rock Performance at the 2019 Grammys, features on ‘Pulled Pork’.
“Now those same people told us ‘Black Lives Matter, hashtag change must come’,” he said. The musician continued to explain the band had decided to self-release it on Bandcamp and not put it up on streaming services like Apple Music or Spotify.
“We will not have our art – our art that in particular concerns itself with the fight against injustice, the fight against racism, the struggles of the disenfranchised, the struggles of minorities – we will not have that art devalued to the extent that it’s worth £0.004 a stream on a good day,” he said. “It’s not gonna happen. We will determine the worth of the art and that’s what we’ve done.”
Vylan added that the duo had decided to put it out now because it is “scarily relevant”. You can download the ‘We Live Here’ EP on Bob Vylan’s Bandcamp page now.
The music industry has been forced to look at how it profits from Black culture while upholding systemic racism after the death of George Floyd sparked protests around the world this week.
Earlier this week, The Weeknd called on Universal, Sony, Warner, Spotify and Apple Music to “go big and go public” with their donations to organisations tackling racial justice and equality. “No one profits off of Black music more than the labels and streaming services,” he wrote.

Here Are the Most Recently Released Marvel Movies Available for Streaming on Disney+
If you love Marvel movies 3000, this streaming platform has you covered. While a number of movies appeared on Disney+ at its launch date, the company released more Marvel content periodically, including Academy Award-winning films like Black Panther. Here are some of the most recently-released Marvel movies available for streaming on Disney+.
Although fans first met T’Challa during Captain America: Civil War, the hero got his own film in 2018. Since its release, Black Panther became one of Marvel’s most popular films, even earning the studio a number of Academy Awards for Costume Design, Best Original Music Score, and Best Production Design.
Due to a “pre-existing agreement,” Black Panther was not available on Disney+ at its launch date. It wasn’t until early 2020 that this film made the switch to Disney’s streaming platform, where it remains for subscribers to binge-watch.
She’s always going further, higher, and faster. As one of Marvel’s most recently released films, Captain Marvel premiered during 2019, earning the studio over $1 billion in box office sales. The movie introduced viewers to the powerful and headstrong U.S. Air Force pilot, Carol Danvers, as she met Nick Fury and started her journey as one of the galaxy’s strongest heroes..
The character then appeared in Avengers: Endgame, joining the Avengers in the fight against Thanos. This movie became available on Disney+ at its launch date, premiering in cinemas only a few months prior.
To say Avengers: Endgame was groundbreaking is an understatement. This film became one of the highest-grossing movies of all time, surpassing the box office sales of Avatar and Beauty and the Beast.
Although it was originally slated for a December 2019 debut on Disney+, the company made this movie available for streaming during November 2019, on the streaming platform’s launch date. It continues to be available for binge-watching with a subscription to this service.
Other Marvel movies available for streaming include Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor: Ragnarok, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Iron Man, Captain America: The First Avenger, Doctor Strange, and Ant-Man. Disney+ also has plans to release original Marvel content, although television shows like The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, and WandaVision are yet to be released.
‘Avengers: Infinity War’ and ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ join Disney+ during 2020
Although Disney technically owns the Marvel franchise, there are still some movies missing from the streaming platform. That includes Avengers: Infinity War and Ant-Man and the Wasp, both of which are currently available for streaming on Netflix.
They will, however, make the switch to Disney+ in the coming weeks. Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War joins the Disney+ streaming library on June 25, 2020. Ant-Man and the Wasp joins the Disney+ library on July 29, 2020.
There’s no word regarding when, or if, the Spider-Man movies will be released on this streaming platform. Spider-Man: Far From Home, starring Tom Holland and Zendaya, is one of Marvel’s most recent cinematic releases, premiering just a few months after Avengers: Endgame.

Aluna on making music without George: “I felt self-conscious trying to drag him through my own self-discovery”
Aluna has spoken about branching out from duo AlunaGeorge to work on her own solo music.
The singer formed the group in 2012 with producer George Reid, with who she has released two albums – 2013’s ‘Body Music’ and 2016’s ‘I Remember’.
In April, though, she released her debut solo single ‘Body Pump’ and the singer has now explained her decision to work on her own in a new interview. “People have always asked me if it [going solo] was something I’d thought about, and I always thought they were mad, because what me and George have is so fruitful,” she told The Forty-Five.
She explained, however, that over time there had been “certain musical and lyrical areas that felt awkward to do in a duo, because they were so singularly from my culture and my perspective”.
“I did feel a little bit self-conscious trying to drag George through my own process of self-discovery,” she said. “I wrote a song before we put out the last EP which was about my mum and my grandma, and George is obviously supportive, but it’s just a bit weird, like ‘hey, do you want to finish off this black women’s anthem with me?’”
Aluna confirmed that, despite her working on solo music at the moment, AlunaGeorge “is definitely still going”. “It’s on hiatus rather than being over, basically,” she said.
AlunaGeorge last put out a record with the 2018 EP ‘Champagne Eyes’. Earlier this year, they collaborated on Kito’s single ‘Alone With You’, as well as working on tracks with Far East Movement and Henry, and Sonny Fodera & King Henry.
