Today is...

National Macaron Day! 

News of the Day:

+ This past weekend, Demi Lovato's grandmother passed away. In her honor, the singer-songwriter uploaded a heartbreaking post about how her "Mimaw" touched her life on Instagram. We send our condolences to Lovato and her family during this difficult time.


This morning I lost my world and the world's most special woman. I miss her more than words can even describe. There is an emptiness in my heart that only her spirit can fill and I pray that I will feel her by my side every single day until we meet again. I attribute my strength to her.. She held on when she lost the love of her life.. The one she was married to for 53 years. She smiled even though she lost a son just this year. She told everyone she loved them every single chance she got and she joked even when her strokes left her unable to speak properly. The smile that she had not only could light up a whole room but it most definitely lit up the entire nursing home. She was my great-grandmother but we were so close that I never knew it was possible that anyone could have the bond that we shared even 70 years a part. The pain I feel is almost unbearable but because of her strength I will power through it. The love and support I have received has been empowering and so special to me.. I love all of you so much and I am forever grateful for the prayers, texts and fan art my Lovatics have made me. Thank you. Mimaw, I hope you are with Papa now.. I hate that I can't hear your voice but I love that you are no longer in pain. I love you so much and I miss you more than anyone could ever imagine. I'll miss your smile, your wittiness, painting your nails and your kisses. I really do love you more. Rest in peace and most importantly rest in the Lord. #RIPMimaw

+ When will people learn not to mess with Solange Knowles? A troll expressed their criticism of her 11-year-old son, Julez, speaking fluently in French in a comment on her Instagram page. Obviously, Knowles clapped back and put the person in their place. On a more positive note, rumor has it that she and her husband, Alan Ferguson, are expecting their first child together! We always wish the best for Sol.

+ According to Daily Dot, a majority of users on Twitter have been supportive of Amber Heard during her troubling divorce. Statistically speaking, 1.8 million tweets express support for the actress using the hashtag #ImWithAmber, outweighing the abusive tweets by 1,368,000.

+ After John Carney's harsh comments about Keira Knightley's acting abilities made their rounds, other film directors that have worked with the actress expressed their outrage on Twitter. They're all calling BS.

+ In an interview with the Sunday Times, Nick Jonas admitted that he used to DM girls he fancied on social media. Apparently, most of the time he received no response... We're speechless. Oh well, now he's dating Lily Collins so our dreams are dashed.
