Kim Kardashian Lashes Out At Instagram, Threatens To Leave. Can Instagram Survive The Backlash AND Become Profitable?

Kim Kardashian is the most followed instagram user, frequently posting photos of herself on the popular photo sharing App. But since the new privacy guidelines (which have already been adjusted after user backlash) she is considering quitting entirely.

Kim Kardashian is the most followed instagram user, frequently posting photos of herself on the popular photo sharing App. But since the new privacy guidelines (which have already been adjusted by Instagram after user backlash) she is considering quitting entirely.

When Instagram announced new terms of service this week, many interpreted it to mean that the company can sell private photos or use them in advertising without compensating them or asking for permission. (Instagram insists that users misinterpreted the new policy, saying that they would never do so without permission or compensating the user, and then went so far as to back off their new policy and reinstate their old one.)

Kardashian, who certainly knows a thing or two about selling images of herself, was none too pleased about the new rules, although its unclear whether she knows of the post-backlash revision. She tweeted: “I really loved Instagram 🙁 I need to review this new policy. I don’t think it’s fair.”  TMZ reports that she may actually stop using it altogether.

It’s unknown how many users dropped Instagram when the new policy was released, but the company, which was recently purchased by Facebook for 1 BILLION DOLLARS, (!) quickly launched into damage control mode after the fury went viral. They issued a new statement vowing not to sell users’ photos and apologizing for the “confusing” language of the announcement.

Here’s the problem: Instagram is currently a Free APP without advertising! So essentially, millions of people enjoy their program, which requires the company to store all those photos – all that data – on some enormous hard drive somewhere… for free? Something’s gotta give. Trouble is – people have gotten might comfortable with this ‘store my photos for nothing’ situation Instagram set up, and now, if they end up getting charged, they may go somewhere else.  Stay tuned – this could get very interesting.

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Published

RIP.

Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.

On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.

Check out the tribute below.

You Will Have Hearts In Your Eyes When You See Cardi B’s New Hair Do

Published

Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)

Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.

The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.

Ya like my hair ?

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib) on

The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.

Check It Out, Joe Jonas Has Shocked His Fans With His New Look

Published

I’m a sucker for his new do.

It doesn’t matter if you are more of a “Nick” or a “Kevin” or a “Joe” when it comes to loving the Jonas Brothers. All that matters is that you all agree with me that Joe is obviously the most attractive of the three brothers and that’s just a fact. I’m sorry but I don’t make the rules.

The 31-year old stunned fans today earlier today when he debuted a shocking new look on his Instagram. Sporting a black t-shirt and those signature dark, furry-Murray eyebrows, Joe flashed his new platinum blond buzzcut. I know I might be in the minority here but I do love when these Hollywood hotties switch it up and do the blond thing. I loved it on Adam Levine. I loved it on Zac Efron. I even found myself oddly drawn to the OG platinum stud, James Michael Tyler aka Gunther from Friends.

Perhaps the new do is a part of Joe’s daddy-makeover as he and his wife, Sophie Turner, recently welcomed their first child, Willa. A source told ET “Sophie and Joe have named their daughter Willa. The couple’s bond has gotten even stronger since the addition of their daughter. Although circumstances are different right now because of the [coronavirus] pandemic, Joe was there for the birth of his daughter. The couple is happy they now have time to spend at home with their daughter and get used to their new life together.”

Be still my heart.
