Toto's "Africa" has been covered a bunch of times over the years. Weezer just had a big hit with their version but I'm not sure about the Pitbull cover. I guess it's just a sample of the hook? Whatever. According to THIS ARTICLE, it's actually in the movie. I will say this, "Ocean To Ocean" definitely sounds exactly like what you'd think Pitbull doing a version of "Africa" would sound like.
Kimmel's at it again! This week he asked parents to turn off the TV during Fortnite and they lost their minds! Don't miss the mom that couldn't figure out how to find the power button on the TV ;)
Philadelpia has new dips out and to celebrate, they've introduced the Double Diptector, a bowl that detects double dippers! There's only one and you can bid on it on Ebay HERE.
It comes with a smartphone and a tablet to track your dipper friends but chips are dip are not included. What's really cool is that all the proceeds from this sale go to Feeding America.

It's Taylor Swift's birthday but for some reason this morning, she gave US the gift. You see, if you're like us, you weren't able to scrape together enough cash to catch her bonkers successful Reputation Stadium Tour. Luckily, she dropped the trailer for the Netflix film that looks like it's almost as good as being there in the first place!

Thanks so much for all the birthday wishes! Today I finally get to show you something we’ve been working on for a while... the trailer for the Reputation Stadium Tour! The entire concert film will premiere on @netflix at 12:01AM PST December 31. You made this tour so insanely fun for all of us on stage, and I’m really excited that we will have this memento of the memories we all made together this year. I also got to share the stage with such wildly talented people @camila_cabello, @charli_xcx, my band and dancers who shine so brightly in this film. You’re the best. Thank you for everything.

9 years ago, a woman in New Jersey accidently flushed her wedding ring down the toilet. A few years ago, she mentioned it to a city worker and last week that guy was doing work on a manhole near her house when he saw something shiny in the muck. It was her ring that had been there for almost a decade! Don't worry, they boiled it in peroxide and lemon juice first ;)
