29 People Absolutely Shook By Some Of The Stuff On Drake's New Album

If you’ve been following news of everything Drake in the past few months, then you know that the insanely successful rapper’s been beefing with the album-of-the-year-candidate, Pusha T (seriously Daytona’s that good).

I won’t bore you with the details, but one of the most talked about back-and-forths in their beef is when Pusha T pointed out that Drake has a son the public has never heard of before. Shortly after, the beef between the two of them was squashed. Kanye, who owns the label Pusha T produces music for, declared it so and T confirmed.

It still didn’t change the fact that people had questions about this mystery child of Drake’s and other things that T brought up in their war of words. When Drake announced his newest album, Scorpion was dropping, fans of the artist were waiting with baited breath to hear if there’d be any references to the bitter exchanges between him and Pusha T. Well, Scorpion‘s here and people were not disappointed.

01

Drake's album was full of surprises, like this note that sums up all the criticisms people make of him online.

People are already giving lyrics from the album the meme treatment. Like this verse from 'Survival'.

07

Which more than a few people had a problem with, though.

08

Like, a big problem.

09

It really wouldn't be original if anyone said that though, so why try it? (this message is to all plotting deadbeat dads out there)

10

At least some quality memes are coming out of it.

11

Others had some questions about the album's cover art.

12

While others had some suggestions of their own.

13

A 'Final Fantasy' and 'Mortal Kombat' reference? Too much.

14

Some people didn't mind it though.

And although people love the entire album…

24

Very, very clear ones.

And of course, no Drake news would be completely without some choice Drake reaction memes.

26

There are a bunch of people who just know that they'll learn every line of the album while scrolling through their Instagram feed.

Lorde And Harry Styles Said 'Hello' At Award Show–And People Are Absolutely Losing It

On Monday night, both Harry Styles and Lorde were up for Best International Artist at the 2017 Australian Recording Industry Association Music Awards. Styles took the crown, but he was such a class act about it, and Twitter can’t get enough.

On his way to receive his statue, Styles made a detour to Lorde’s seat and gave her a couple cheek kisses, and yes, we’re freaking out:

Are they friends? Is he just being nice? Did he want to recognize how amazing she is? No one knows for certain, but they’re alternately dying and being brought back to life by this iconic moment:

Now, imagine how Lorde feels about getting kissed by Harry Styles.

Alaska Airlines Just Embarrassed Tomi Lahren, And Twitter Is Absolutely Loving It

Controversial YouTube conservative personality Tomi Lahren took to Twitter to get her sass on at Alaska Airlines after a (presumably) bad experience flying with them…

…to which the airline responded by (presumably) accidentally misspelling her name.

And others continued to catch on.

We are eagerly awaiting Tomi Lahren’s response and have no doubt it will arrive in the form of an angry YouTube video.

This Baby Goat With One Eye Is Defying The Odds And Absolutely Thriving

Just when I think that the world will always be dreary and predictable, something truly extraordinary happens. In this case, it is this baby cyclops goat, who has lived now for eight days in a village in India. Born on May 10th, National Geographic is reporting that he is definitely defeating the odds. 

The goat has cyclopia, which means his brain has failed to separate into two halves. That’s why he has only one eye socket. The condition can be a genetic defect, but can also be caused by the mother ingesting toxins during pregnancy. Most creatures suffering form the condition don’t last long. But this goat is a creature of hope:

The goat may be surviving because of the loving care he’s receiving from owner Mukhuri Das, who told reporters that he’s thrilled by all the attention he and the goat are getting. Dozens of people swing by his residence everyday, trekking from surrounding villages. Das said, “I believe this goat will bring luck to my home.”

The Huffington Postreports he told Barcroft TV that he certainly wasn’t expecting anything like this. “I was shocked. It’s like a miracle and people have been coming to our place to see this baby goat,” he said. “It might be something from God that the baby goat was born in our house.”

In addition to having only one eye, the goat is missing eyelashes, eyelids, an ear, teeth, and its jaw and nose are shortened and underdeveloped. Other than that, he seems fine! But it’s these sorts of deformities, and an underdeveloped brain, that make it difficult for animals born with cyclopia to live. 

Das has apparently been feeding him like a normal goat and he’s doing fine. Maybe this goat has the perfect balance of needed abilities to make it work, or maybe a goat doesn’t actually need a fully developed brain to survive. He still baas. Long live cyclops goat!

This 7-Year-Old's Impersonation of Taylor Swift Is Absolutely Spot On

There are some truly odd reality television series around the world. The United States is usually the champion of these, but on rare occasions, the rest of the world beats us in absurdity. Take Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids from the Philippines. Basically, it’s a talent competition in which kids compete by impersonating their heroes. 

Seven-year-old performer Xia Vigor recently took part in the show, and channeled her inner Taylor Swift. And it was pretty amazing…

Michelle Obama Absolutely Destroyed Trump In A Passionate Speech In New Hampshire

Regardless of political affiliation, we’ve all had major frustrations this election cycle. The disturbing rhetoric and general negativity has been unprecedented — a true feat for American politics. 

…And it doesn’t help that one candidate can’t seem to stop saying egregious things about women. Many have tried to take him down for this kind of behavior, but few have actually succeeded. Until recently, his poll numbers were strong and he seemed unfazed by his competition. 

But one woman knows how to wreck her opponent: Michelle Obama. 

First Lady Michelle Obama has captivated everyone’s attention with arguably the most powerful speech of the election. 

While campaigning for Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, Obama moved an entire crowd to tears with a powerful and pointed speech taking down Donald Trump, all without mentioning his name. 

And that’s how you do politics. 

After a few minutes of positivity, she just had to get into the cold, hard truth: 

[in this campaign] we have consistently been hurting hateful language about women. Language that has been painful for so many of us, not just as women, but as parents trying to protect our children and raise them to be caring respectful adults, who think our nation’s leader should meet basic standards of human decency.

She went on to talk about a particular ~unnamed~ candidate (guess who?).

And last week we saw this candidate actually bragging about sexually assaulting women… And I can’t believe that I’m saying that a candidate for president of the United States has bragged about sexually assaulting women. And I have to tell you that I can’t stop thinking about this. It has shaken me to my core in a way that I couldn’t have predicted.

Shaken her to the core, America. 

And she even addressed Trump’s “locker room talk” defense. Spoiler alert: SHE’S NOT IMPRESSED. 

This was not just a lewd conversation. This wasn’t ‘locker room banter.’ This was a powerful individual speaking freely and openly about sexually predatory behavior.

You better watch out, Donald. She is not joking around. And she’s a total goddamn badass. 

Then she got specific in a way that was chillingly familiar to her audience:

It is cruel. It is frightening. And the truth is, it hurts… It’s like that sick sinking feeling you get when you’re walking down the street minding your own business. some guy yells out vulgar words about your body. Or when you see that guy at work that stands just a little too close, stares just a little too long, you feel uncomfortable in your own skin. It’s that feeling of terror and violation that too many women have felt when someone has grabbed them or forced himself on them and they’ve said no but he didn’t listen.

And she reminded the crowd that this behavior should never be considered “normal.”

As she put it, this is anything but “politics as usual.”

Within minutes of the speech hitting Youtube, FLOTUS was trending on Twitter — and people couldn’t get over how powerful her speech was. 

Your move, Donald. FLOTUS is not backing down. 

Is there anything Michelle Obama can’t do? We’re pretty awestruck.
