If you’re anything like us, we see an interesting headline during our daily scroll—pause to read it—but then keep scrolling without reading the actual story. So at the end of each week, we’re rounding up all the buzziest, news-worthy headlines you might have missed. Think of it like the “saved” feature on Instagram but for news instead of aesthetically pleasing photos. Kanye West is still living in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Saweetie is collaborating with McDonald’s, and Billie Eilish releases her new album—this is what you missed this week.
Kanye West Is Paying $1 Million Per Day To Live In Mercedes-Benz Stadium
Last week Kanye had a listening party in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium for his forthcoming album Donda and has not left the building since. Yes, you read that right he is currently living in the stadium until he finishes the album. The minimalistic room looks cozy(ish) with a twin bed, stand-alone closet, and TV but it doesn’t come cheap. Reporter Karyn Greed tweeted this week that Kanye is reportedly paying $1 million dollars per day to rent out the stadium. Oh, to be Mr. West. If there’s one thing you can expect from Kanye—it’s the unexpected.
BTS Covers “I’ll Be Missing You” By Puff Daddy and Faith Evans
The K-pop band appeared on the BBC Live Lounge this week and as usual, the announcement sent social media into a frenzy. They performed a cover of Puff Daddy and Faith Evans’ “I’ll Be Missing You” that’s a tribute to Notorious B.I.G. The group seamlessly transitioned from rapping to singing and even added their own Korean verse. They also performed their recent hits “Butter” and “Permission To Dance.”
Billie Eilish Says Making ‘Happier Than Ever’ Was The Most Profound Experience
Billie Eilish’s sophomore album is finally here and she’s even happier than you about its release. In an Instagram post announcing its release, Eilish said making the album was “the most filling most satisfying and profound experience” she’s ever had with music. The caption slash speech included a huge thank you to her brother who co-wrote every song and produced the album. The positive reviews of ‘Happier Than Ever’ solidify Eilish as one of the best pop artists of her generation. Looks like blondes do have more fun.
McDonald’s Taps Saweetie For Latest Celebrity Meal
There’s going to be a Saweetie meal coming to a McDonald’s near you soon. The icy queen is the latest celebrity to collaborate with the fast-food chain and if you follow her on Instagram then you know she’s a fast food foodie. She notoriously puts Hot Cheetos on pizza and Top Ramen seasoning on oysters. Weird flex but could be good? Her McDonald’s meal will include a Big Mac, 4-piece Chicken McNuggets, medium fries, medium Sprite, Tangy BBQ sauce, and ‘Saweetie ‘N Sour’ sauce. Of course, the collab will include special edition packaging because it just wouldn’t be the same eating a Saweetie endorsed meal out of the regular red and yellow boxes.
Travis Scott Releases fragment design Merch And Air Jordan 1s
The full-time rager part-time sneaker designer Travis Scott is back with another Air Jordan 1 collab that sold out instantly. The official release of his fragment design merch included a blue, white, and black AJ1 that was the most anticipated item of the drop. La Flame fans took to Twitter and Discord to voice their frustration over the use of bots that snagged most of the sneakers. A problem that’s been plaguing the sneakerhead community for years. Anyone that would like to cop the shoes on the resale market is looking at prices between $2,000 and $3,000 USD.
