No Pos Wow: Trump And Peña Nieto Back Together, New Parrot Discovered In Mexico, And More

In today’s world, the news happens so fast that it’s nearly impossible to keep up with the latest, breaking developments. Here are five quick headlines to keep you up on the stories that might have gotten lost in the shuffle this week.

He told his wife he was going to get cigarettes and ended up at the FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia.


Whenever someone says they’re “going out for cigarettes,” you know they’re about to do some shady shit. This past week, El Tri fan Arturo Garcia flew from his home in Puebla, Mexico to Kazan, Russia, after telling his wife he was just going out to get a pack of lung darts. Garcia not only ended up blowing his life savings during the trip, he also injured his achilles tendon. Oh, and Mexico lost to Germany in a one-sided semifinal matchup. “I told my woman, I’m going to get some cigarettes at the Oxxo, but I didn’t tell her which one,” Garcia told La República. Nice try, Garcia.

“Red-faced” parrot species discovered in Mexico.


It takes a lot to excite ornithologists, but the recent discovery of Mexico’s red-faced parrot is definitely a reason for them to get buck. Along with its red face, the bird, which was discovered by Miguel Gómez Garza in Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula, has blue tipped wings and a distinct call, which distinguish it from other birds. The bird also mimics the sound of a hawk, which scientists speculate is to scare off other birds from potential sources of food.

Divas are beautiful, powerful, and majestic. They’re also apparently headaches to work with, according to Will Ferrell, who recently took a seat on “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen.” During the show, Ferrell discussed how, during the filming of “The House,” Mariah Carey showed up four hours late to shoot her cameo. When she finally arrived, Carey squashed the song she’d planned on singing, which then created, as Ferrell describes it, “a shit storm.” Carey’s diva-ness reached a breaking point, and her role was ultimately scrapped from the movie. No publicity is bad publicity, however, Carey’s personal Twitter account retweeted the story for all her lambies to see.

President Trump and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto haven’t had the best relationship. Not one to shy away from a public confrontation, President Trump has repeatedly demanded that Mexico pay for his proposed border wall, and in a phone conversation, Trump reportedly said, “I don’t need the Mexicans. I don’t need Mexico.” Well, now, Trump and Peña Nieto will cross paths at the G20 summit in Germany next week, their first meeting since last September’s interesting press conference. Will they make up and be friendly? Will they wear the same thing? Will Peña Nieto go Vicente Fox on Trump? We’ll find out soon.

The Cast of ‘Glee’ Along With Demi Lovato Paid Tribute to Naya Rivera At the GLAAD Awards

The Cast of ‘Glee’ Along With Demi Lovato Paid Tribute to Naya Rivera At the GLAAD Awards

On Thursday, the cast of “Glee” paid tribute to Naya Rivera at the GLAAD Media Awards. Rivera was a once-in-a-lifetime talent the touched so many lives personally and through the screen while she was alive. But perhaps none of Naya’s roles were as impactful as Santana Lopez was.

This year, GLAAD decided to take time to honor the impact Naya Rivera had on LGBTQ representation onscreen.

During a time when LGBTQ represenation onscreen was rare, Santana Lopez was groundbreaking for being both queer and Latina. Santana went from a shut-off closeted cheerleader to an out-and-proud lesbian woman. This was a story arc many queer kids had never seen before.

Demi Lovato introduced the cast of “Glee” with a touching speech. She described how honored she was (and still is) to have played Santana’s girlfriend, Dani, on the show.

“I don’t have to tell you that this year was a tough, tough year,” Lovato said. “A particular moment of heartbreak stands out for me: losing my friend Naya Rivera. I will always cherish the chance I got to play Naya’s girlfriend, Dani, on ‘Glee.’”

“The character Naya played, Santana Lopez, was groundbreaking for closeted queer girls — like I was at the time,” she went on. “And her ambition and accomplishments inspired Latina women all over the world.”

Then, dozens of former “Glee” cast members gathered via Zoom to pay tribute to Naya Rivera.

The tribute featured former “Glee” actors like Darren Criss, Jane Lynch, Matthew Morrison, Amber Riley, Heather Morris, Harry Shum Jr., Jenna Ushkowitz, Chris Colfer, and Kevin McHale. There were also many others.

“Naya would be honored to receive this recognition,” read the statement. “When Naya was told that Santana would be a lesbian she called me to let me know and I asked her how did she feel about that and she said ‘I feel great about it!'”

“This year marks the tenth anniversary that Naya’s character, Santana Lopez, came out on ‘Glee’,” said Dot-Marie Jones, who played Coach Beast on the Fox series.

“Santana basically got disowned by her family. And as alot of us know, that’s a feeling too many LGBTQ kids know too well,” continued Chris Colfer, who played Kurt Hummel.

The loving tribute then ended with a written statement from Naya Rivera’s mother Yolanda Previtire, who couldn’t make it to the call.

“Little did we know that she would impact so many people in the LGBTQ community. Her desire was to always be an advocate to those who did not have a voice.

“She continued: “I don’t believe that she realized how important she was to this world. I am grateful that my eldest daughter helped to change the landscape of how we view and see each other.”

“Her desire was to always be an advocate to those who did not have a voice,” the message read, in part. “I don’t believe that she realized how important she was to this world. I am grateful that my eldest daughter helped to change the landscape of how we view and see each other.”

Mariah Carey Got Her First Dose Of The Vaccine And Made It Into An Iconic Moment

Mariah Carey Got Her First Dose Of The Vaccine And Made It Into An Iconic Moment

Vaccines are rolling out across the country. People are getting their shots so life can finally start getting back to normal after a year of quarantining and social distancing. Mariah Carey let her fans join on her first shot and it became iconic.

Mariah Carey got her first shot of the vaccine and hit that whistle note.

More and more Americans are finally getting vaccinated to get the world back to normal. More than 160 million vaccines have been given in the U.S. and people are starting to see the results. Life is slowly getting back to normal for families who haven’t seen each other in years.

The singer was “excited and nervous a little bit” about getting the vaccine. Her demeanor showed just how impactful it is for people to do their part to get us back to normal.

True to form, Carey was in her camera-ready pose when she was getting ready.

People receiving the vaccine are told to keep their arm relaxed but Carey clearly isn’t made for that. How do you just turn off your star charisma?

It’s important to keep your arm relaxed while you are getting your vaccination to save you from the pain. If your arm is tense or in an awkward position, it is more likely to move during the jab, which can be painful. Listen to your nurses.

Some people are very curious how someone so young got the vaccine.

President Joe Biden announced that all states must make vaccine eligibility open to all adults by April 19. Some states are allowing people as young as 16 to get vaccinated. This is an accelerated deadline from the previously called for May 1. President Biden has worked hard to push the vaccination rate up and he has delivered on his promises for various vaccination deadlines.

People want to know if the vocal skills are a side effect of the vaccine.

There are a lot of conspiracy theories circulating about the vaccine. Some people believe that Bill Gates is microchipping them using the vaccine. It is a conspiracy that persists despite people definitively debunking the theory.

Congratulations, Mariah!

The world is eager to get back to normal and the vaccination rollout across the world is going to get us there. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is slowly releasing new guidelines about what fully vaccinated people are able to do.

For example, it is safe for fully vaccinated people to gather in small groups indoors without masks and social distancing. Fully vaccinated people can also fly on airplanes without much risk because of the effectiveness of the vaccine.
