Can We Talk About Salma Hayek Having A ‘Grease’ Moment At The Beach?

Salma Hayek’s Hot Girl Summer is officially OTT. The Mexican-American actress has taken the viral vibe (take notes: it’s a mindset, not a lifestyle) to a completely different dimension in her latest Instagram post which has left concerned onlookers with hundreds of questions.

In a recent post to her Instagram account, the actress is 1. raising questions about how waves should be used and 2. sending me on the hunt for a lavender bathing suit.

Now that you’re caught up, are you ready for a deep dive into Hayek’s recent post?

Giphy.com

Let’s do this!

So Hayek posted a slideshow of pictures to her Instagram that channel a one-woman take on iconic film scenes.

In a caption for the post, Hayek wrote that “Sometimes you just need to surrender and let the waters move and embrace you. A veces hay que dejarse ir y dejar que las aguas te muevan y te abracen. #waves.”

The caption alone raises a TON of questions. For instance, what does Salma feel like she needs to surrender to? Perhaps it’s her deep desire to appear in a classic film so she can reenact an icon scene?

You know the scenes we’re talking about.

The extremely ~sexUAL~ one in “From Here To Eternity.”

Which inspired a not quite as sexual scene in “Grease.”

The photos also show Salma in the pretty cute lavender bathing suit she has been posting about nearly all of August

Here Salma is in the bathing suit in its most recent appearance.

And here Salma is wearing the suit earlier in the month.

This was posted on AUGUST 13.

Salma Hayek wore a lavender bathing suit to the beach so I wore a lavender bathing suit.

This was posted to Salma’s account on August 7th with the hashtag #water #agua. It’s cute, figure-hugging and makes her look like a goddess on the beach.

But back to the Real Business of the matter:

Salma’s pseudo drowning pic posted this week which gives us all kinds of emo vibes.

It has most of us confused about whether or not she’s okay? Or, if she’s on a different level than the rest of us and is actually pretty tight.

And because Instagram, naturally, is a place to ask real questions about celebrities and their daily celebrity doings we felt pretty validated that others have questions too.

For example:

landopolo asks the question “Oh no baby what is you doin” in a comment of the post made on a post of the images by @officialseanpenn, an account which also wanted to know if Hayek needed a lifeguard.

And this one: “is she okay” – by concerned user ava_royale

And this comment by “Corpse goals😍” by therealgenevievetho.

Hayek also did an extreme close up of herself being nearly damn swallowed by a wave.

To which I repeat the wise words of Instagram user landopolo “Oh no baby what is you doin.”

It’s okay though, she pops up for breath pretty soon after.

And that’s on that on Salma Hayek must be trolling us news.

In our next episode, we’ll be chatting about Hayek’s newly changed bio which has been changed to a bunch of emojis.

This Mom Hosted A “Job Fair” For Her Kids When They Asked For More Allowance And All Latinx Kids Can Relate

Growing up, I’m sure you all remember going up to your dad, tios, or abuelito asking for your “domingo” (aka your weekly allowance). Or you probably remember doing all these favors and chores for your mom, expecting a little something-something in return. But what might haunt us most of all is when we asked our parents for a raise in our weekly allowance.

 I mean, the older we became, the more money we needed and the older we became, the more we realized that nothing in life is free (dun, dun, dun). 

But times have changed and new generations of parents are getting a little more creative with how they talk to their children about money and how they teach them about financial literacy at a young age.

Our generation might be judged for spending too much money on avocado toast and iced coffee but we still know the value of a dollar and the hard work that goes into it, so we’re here for teaching younger generations those same lessons — in more constructive ways, of course. Because if you remember correctly, our Latinx mom’s would either take out the chancla or give us a whole speech about “you think money grows from tees?” whenever we’d try to ask for a little more money (if any, since a lot of us might not have had that privilege). 

Anyway, back to the point… one mom’s Facebook post went viral after she shared that she hosted a makeshift job fair for her children after they kept asking for a higher allowance.

“My children continue to ask for a new cell phone, an allowance, and to go places,” the mother, Shaketha Marion McGregor wrote in her Facebook post. “Yesterday I told them that I’ve heard their requests and that I’ll have a surprise for them today when they get home from school. SURPRISE!!! It’s a whole hiring event. If you want it, work for it, earn it!”

And yes, she even had an in-home credit union (wait, what even is that? These kids are about to be ready for when #adulting hits them).

McGregor’s Facebook post has already gotten over 212K likes, 35K comments, and over 130K shared on the social media platform.

People on Facebook were quick to flood her comments with positive messaging applauding the mother for teaching her kids about responsibility and the value of the dollar. Many were even taking notes, tagging other friends, suggesting they do this with their own kids, nieces, or nephews. 

McGregor went all out with the job fair for her kids. She had a listing of all the open jobs available with descriptions of duties and job responsibilities.

The mother was hiring a Kitchen Manager, Lead Housekeeper, and Laundry Supervisor. To apply, her kids had to fill out an application and turn it into her immediately. Salary, the job posting said, would be discussed during the interview. We hope her kids negotiated salary because kids out here need the latest iPhone, iPad, and AirPods. 

Buzzfeed who first reported this story reached out to McGregor to speak with her about her Facebook post. 

She told the publication that when her kids entered her house and saw the job fair, they  said “this is not what we asked for.”

Still, she told them that if they wanted the things they were asking for then they had to learn to be responsible with money. “To my surprise, they brought me the applications one by one,” McGregor told Buzzfeed. 

Here’s what the applications looked like:

We wish job applications were this easy in the real world. 

As aforementioned, McGregor even set up an in-home credit union to help her kids build their credit.

To be honest, we also wish some of our parents would have taught us the importance of building your credit from a young age. We can’t help but wonder if McGregor will open up this job fair to the public? Because we’re interested… 

More people on Facebook shared their thoughts about McGregor’s job fair in the comments sections and some even shared their own version of her job fair.

One user shared that their oldest child worked for them “under the table” when he was 12 and then they made him do “taxes.” Woah, this is next level. Again, why didn’t anyone teach us how to do taxes at age 12?

Another woman comment that McGregor was her “hero” and a huge inspiration. (Photo credit: Facebook/Shaketha Marion McGregor)

She said she was even planning a job fair at her house! It’s about to become a movement. 

All in all, according to Buzzfeed, McGregor put it simply that she just wants her kids to be proud of the work they do, “no matter what the position may be.” 

We’re sure they will be, and now they’ll learn the value of a dollar and the hard work that goes into earning your own money.
