People Are Losing It Over Coat Meghan Markle Just Wore To Her First Royal Engagement

Soon-to-be Princess Meghan Markle made a a dazzling debut on the world stage this week.

Prince Harry and his fiancée made their first official appearance together in the UK, meeting a community that is “very special” to the Prince. The couple did their inaugural royal walkabout through Nottingham, then attended a World AIDS Day event.

Markle charmed people with her glowing smile and warm enthusiasm — and her chic coat:

Later, they visited the Nottingham academy, where they watched young actors perform an improvised play about a “fictional” young couple going public with their secret romance. One of the actors, 19-year-old Taynika Jarrett-Bennett, said, “We wanted to make it a fun play and involve the royals.”

And Markle won over the cast when she complimented their performance.

And so a new royal chapter begins. We think Princess Diana would be proud.

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

People Are Losing It Over This Viral NSFW Wedding Photo

A Dutch photographer name Michel Klooster has got everyone clutching their pearls with this very naughty wedding photo of a couple that just could not wait to get to the honeymoon suite. The image has gone viral because of the very convincing simulation of oral sex:

Klooster also took a shot of the same couple canoodling in the back of a car, but after that suggestive pic, it seems comparatively innocent:

Klooster toldThe Huffington Post that the image was not his idea at all. It was the mother of the bride’s concept.

“We were taking photos and she [told] me that they wanted that kind of picture, but the bride and groom didn’t dare ask me,” he wrote to them in a Facebook message. “Then I just said, ‘Of course, we are gonna do it.’ So I suggested where they need to stand for the right vibe!”

There has been something of an outcry from people who think Klooster and his naughty pic are what’s wrong with the world today, but he thinks everyone’s got their panties in a twist over nothing.

“You see nothing in this picture, but it looks like something is going on there,” he said. “Every picture you’ll take with that kind of question is interesting to watch. For me, sex is one of the most natural things we do in life. It’s normal! Everyone does it. We don’t live in the 1900s anymore.”

He added that, “there are bigger problems in the world than this funny picture.” Also, though there are a fair number of people who don’t like it, a whole bunch do. Klooster says he’s been contacted by lots of couples who want him to shoot their wedding, and a few other scenarios.

“If it’s not porn, I don’t have any problems with that,” he said.

Do you think the picture is pure smut? Or do you agree with Klooster that it’s harmless fun?

Obama May Have Just Revealed The Gender Of Beyoncé's Twins And Twitter Is Losing It

The Songwriters Hall of Fame inducted Jay-Z in a ceremony on Thursday. Jay-Z is the first rapper to every be included in the Hall of Fame, and they got a pretty big name to record a video message to him. No, not his wife. President Barack Obama sent in a message to the Carter family with a congratulations and few other important details embedded in it:

After saying his general congratulations, Obama drew some comparisons between himself and Jay-Z:

“I like to think Mr. Carter and I understand each other,” Obama continued. “Nobody who met us as younger men would have expected us to be where we are today. We know what it’s like not to have a father around, we know what it’s like not to come from much, and to know people who didn’t get the same breaks that we did. So we try to prop open those doors of opportunity so that it’s a little easier for those who come up behind us to succeed as well.”

He also added that they were both “fools for our daughters,” adding, “But he’s gonna have me beat once those two twins show up.” 

Wait, what? Did Obama just reveal the sex of Beyoncé’s twins? Twitter seems to think so:

Though at least one person took the less literal and more sexist view that the only way Jay-Z could beat Obama was by having boys:

It’s hard to say if Obama was revealing anything, on purpose or by accident. Though because the video is taped, you’d think someone would have caught that phrasing when they reviewed it. President Obama goes on to that say that he and Jay-Z both have “wives that are significantly more popular than we are,” so he was obviously clear-headed during filming. He also added what may be a low-key comment on Donald Trump, as well:

“Like all of you, I am a fan: I’ve been listening to Jay since I was a young and hungry state senator,” Obama continued. “I sampled his lyrics to close his speech at Selma, and tweeted a reference to ‘My First Song’ when I was putting the finishing touches on my final State of the Union address. I had to ‘brush some dirt off my shoulders’ during a campaign. So I’m pretty sure I’m still the only president to listen to Jay Z’s music in the Oval Office. That may change at some point but I’m pretty sure that’s true now.”

According toUSA Today, Jay-Z was himself absent from the ceremony, which is feeding the rumors that Beyoncé is in labor now or has recently given birth. He gave a thank you on twitter, though it’s not his main form of communication, as you can see:

What a beautiful relationship!

The Internet Is Losing Its Mind Over This Man's Smoking Room Sorcery

With the exception of rewatching ‘Harry Potter’ (and sitting through that one weird cousin’s uncomfortably lame card trick) we don’t get to see magic very often. But maybe we’re just looking in the wrong places. 

22-year-old Isamu Felipe Nagano from the Gifu Prefecture in Japan stumbled upon some pretty impressive magic tricks — in the smoking area of a shopping mall.  

Nagano and three friends witnessed these seriously impressive tricks and uploaded this video to Twitter. 

But who is this mysterious, talented man?

“Without saying anything, [the magic man] started floating his paper cup,” Nagano told BuzzFeed News. “We asked him to do it again, and so he did without speaking a word.”

And it sounds like the guy seemed pretty pleased with himself.

“When he was done with his magic tricks, he gave us a smug face. He started smoking looking very satisfied, with a full smile on his face,” Nagano said. 

Twitter couldn’t get enough of this wizardry — the video has been retweeted nearly 60,000 times… And people seem to comment “WTF” quite frequently. 

“What! WTF!!”

Seriously though, how does he do it?

“It’s simple: That dude’s a wizard.”

Despite his Internet fame, the man’s identity remains a mystery.

“We don’t know his name,” Nagano. “But my friends who live around the area said that they recognize him although they too don’t know his name.”

Who knew that sorcery could be found in Japanese mall smoking rooms? (h/t buzzfeed)

People Are Losing Their Minds While Trying To Find The Cell Phone In This Photo

In order to momentarily distract ourselves from the tragedy and political strife that’s plaguing our world, we might as well turn to the Internet for a little useless entertainment. For those of us who love optical illusions (or Where’s Waldo), this is the jackpot. In the image below, there is a cell phone lying somewhere on a rug. And no, it’s not digitally edited in, it just has a patterned phone case that nicely matches the decor. 

Jeya May Cruz, a sales representative at Dell, first posted this photo to Facebook, challenging people to find the phone. 

As with any optical illusion, it takes forever to find and then you can’t remember how you didn’t see it immediately. But, in all fairness, this is a very inconspicuous phone case. 

Found it? If not, behold:

Now you can’t stop seeing it, right?

The infuriating camouflaging phone went viral almost immediately.

In less than a week, the photo racked up 121,000 likes and over 15,000 shares on Facebook. 

…We hope everyone enjoyed their few seconds of frustration that had nothing to do with death or guns. (h/t someecards)
