What Latinos Would Do If They Had the Force of ‘Star Wars’

La fuerza is too strong on Twitter. Seriously. Here is what some people would do if they were given the almighty gift of The Force. And honestly, can you blame them?

People would use it for practical purposes, like blocking mami from their social media pages.

Do you really want her to see your drunken weekend after your last final? Didn’t think so.

Or to lose weight.

Me: *focuses real hard to make mi panza disappear before Christmas*

Getting through the work week would be a breeze.

The force? Tequila? Whatever it takes to make it to Friday.

A few would use it to make the world a better place. ??

It’s a win-win situation.

Studying for your finals? The force would have your back.

Because praying for an A is so 2005.

It can be the Atkins substitute you’ve been waiting for.

No gym. Just the force.

Now this is a use of the force all Star Wars fans can agree on.

Imagine being able to silence all the spoilers out there just with your mind. #signmeup

Does it really work on matter of the heart? You never know till you try.

And when you get rejected, you can blame something other than yourself.

#truth

Nothing sucks more than stand still traffic in the morning.

Ummm…if you’re thinking of depending on the force to go to the bathroom, you should probably get it checked out.

Sorry ’bout your luck, bruh.

When living in a world (or a day) without coffee… The force would give you that much-needed boost.

Let’s hope the force is enough to get you through the day.

Getting back at your boss would be super easy.

Just make sure they don’t know about your hidden skill.

What would you do if you had the force on your side? Share this story with your friends and see what they need the force for.

Latina Journalist Captures André 3000 Playing An Indigenous Mayan Flute At LAX And It’s Just So Awesome

We see celebrities all the time at the airport. Sometimes they’re noteworthy (Edward James Olmos, Rosario Dawson), sometimes they’re yawners (Gérard Depardieu), but imagine seeing one half of Outkast at your gate. Wouldn’t you freak out? That’s exactly what happened to a New York-based journalist.

Antonia Cereijido, a producer for NPR’s Latino USA podcast, was casually waiting for her flight at the Los Angeles Airport when she spotted André 3000.

The sighting almost wasn’t meant to be. Cerejido explained that she had missed her first flight.

“The crazy thing is I was supposed to take a flight at 11:15 the night before,” she told Slate in an interview, “but there were 50 minutes of traffic at the airport, so I missed my flight. I was very upset. I had to buy flights for the next day, and I was annoyed. I arrived super early, like, “I’m not going to miss my second flight.”

When she realized it was him, she — as any smart person would do — asked to take a picture with him.

“Well, I think I said, ‘I’m a big fan of yours,’ and then because my friend had said, ‘That’s not a flute,’ I asked, ‘What instrument is that?’ and he said, ‘Oh, it’s a flute. It’s an indigenous double flute.’ Then I asked to take a photo. I was sort of starstruck. I took the photo, and I went away as quickly as possible before I said anything and I sat down. Then we all boarded the plane, and I uploaded the post on Instagram and on Twitter. I saw that it was popular because it was probably only up for 10 minutes and it had 600 likes.”

Yeah, her tweet was popular. It’s gotten more than 50K retweets.

“I had one tweet before get kind of popular,” she told Slate. “It was, like, a thousand likes, so I was excited. Then I turned my phone off. And then, when we landed six hours later, it had 68,000 likes. And actually, my first feeling was dread. I felt kind of bad, like, what if I’m outing—what if this is what he does, he goes to places and plays the flute and kind of stays low-key? Because it wasn’t like he was asking for a lot of attention—he was doing his own thing. And I could tell that he saw I was staring at him when he was going back-and-forth, but it wasn’t like he was mad at the attention. He was just sort of neutral.”

But, about that indigenous flute.

People on social media actually questioned her about her flute knowledge, but she got the response directly from André and the makers.

“I just got off the phone with Guillermo Martinez the man who made Andres’s beautiful flute, she tweeted. “It’s a Mayan double flute. He and his shop are doing incredible work by keeping the music if indigenous North American communities alive. Here is his website: https://www.quetzalcoatlmusic.org/ 

The best part about the story is how Outkast is part of her family history.

“My family is originally from Argentina, and when we first moved from New York to San Diego, it was so different from my experience up until then that my family became really close,” she told Slate. “And there were two things we listened to all the time: the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Outkast. And we became obsessed with the Speakerboxxx/The Love Below album. My mom had a dream that André 3000 taught us the “Hey Ya!” dance. I always remembered that, because it was such a funny thing for my mom to say. And so I have this very fond feeling about him, and he lived up to that. My mom dreamed that he would be nice and teach us something, and that happened to me in real life, which is so crazy.”

So awesome!

All Of Twitter Is Trying To Figure Out When Natti Natasha And Rob Kardashian Became An Item, And Same

All Of Twitter Is Trying To Figure Out When Natti Natasha And Rob Kardashian Became An Item, And Same

In the game of love, it’s all about who DMs first. Now if you’re a baller, or at least trying to come off as one, you put your feelings out there in the open. No need to slip into the DMs, a simple tweet will do. At least that’s how it is for some people on Twitter.

On June 4, what we thought was some mindless flirting by two public figures is turning out to be a lot more than we anticipated.

It looks like Rob Kardashian’s tweet to singer Natti Natasha worked.

That shameless gawk tweet that he tweeted at the Dominican artist in which he basically put it all out there actually got a response from her, even though fans were clearly trying to prevent that from happening.

On Sunday, Natti wished the only male Kardashian a Happy Father’s Day and implied that she knows him a lot better than any of us assumed.

“I know.”

????

Really, Natti?

We’re not doubting his parenting skills at all, but we are doubting this unabashedly understanding between these two people. Are they really that tight?

But wait, the convo got way more heated.

Kardashian then tweeted, “see u soon.”

We’re about to start cursing in Spanish.

People on social media tried to stop these two from starting anything last week, and now it’s intervention time.

People are begging at this point.

Run, Natti, run!

There’s no running away on social media, only blocking.

Some are seriously entertained by what’s going on.

We are too, to be honest.

Listen to reason.

Where will this relationship go?

To be fair, Rob may be a cool guy. He may be the best boyfriend ever. But the Kardashians just don’t have the best track record when it comes to relationships.

Now big sis Khloe is getting involved.

Khloe, if you don’t know who Natti is please leave the room.

Dear Natti, if you’re looking for a hookup and more exposure in the tabloids then, by all means, keep doing you. You are playing this one right. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
