Do you need a daily dosage of four of the biggest stories in entertainment today? We will supply you with just that! Welcome back to 4YE’s The Daily Four!
Introducing, Caitlyn Jenner: It is undoubtedly the biggest pop-culture story of the day and possibly the year! A very personal journey, revelation and transition of Caitlyn Jenner climaxed with the release of the new Vanity Fair issue. After living over sixty years as a man while truly identifying as a woman inside, Jenner was finally able to let go of the lie. She embraced the truth to become the woman she always was. Taking the name Caitlyn, the elegant cover from Vanity Fair (pictured above) introduced her to the world. The introduction has left the world in awe. The series of pictures, shot by Annie Leibovitz, reveal Jenner’s gorgeous figure, stunning features, and flowing hair. The headline, “Call Me Caitlyn” has trended worldwide on Twitter. Jenner has also just broke Barack Obama’s record for most followers gained in four hours. Many stars of all ages and professions have publicly sent support to Jenner for her bravery and congratulating her on her achievement of freedom.
Marina and the Diamonds Wants Equality For Women: Distinct vocalist Marina and the Diamonds is still unable to believe that inequality for women exists in 2015! When asked if she is a feminist, the “Primadonna” singing superstar replied, “Is that a real f**king question?” Nylon magazine recently named her the “sound of feminism” on their recent cover featuring Marina. She reacted to the label with a series of Tweets, one reading, “Do you really want me to write a feminist anthem? I’m happy cooking dinner in the kitchen for my husband.” Marina is one of many female musicians to openly express their support of feminism; others being names like Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga and Pussy Riot.
Proud Redheads Petition For Apple To Release Redhead Emojis: Huge success was seen with Apple’s recent decision to include emojis to represent people of different skin colours and tones. One thing they seem to have left out is ginger hair. Ginger people are not letting it slide! A campaign led by redheads on Change.org has passed the 10,000 signature mark and will be taken to Apple to consider creating ginger emojis. Emma Kelly of Ginger Parrot backed the argument, saying, “Natural redheads may be rare at less than 2% of the world’s population, but that is 138,000,000 iPhones waiting to happen.” There are even ginger-pride pins you can purchase to show your support, with the male and female smiley face pins being sold at £4 each or £7 for the pair. iOS 9 is due to be revealed in the next few weeks. Let’s hope it’s good news for redheads!
Dog Grooming Is Now More Fair and Square: If you love cute animals and shapes (particularly cubes), you will simply adore this story. A growing trend in Japanese dog-grooming sees pooches having their hair trimmed to form perfectly symmetrical and even cube shapes. Japanese culture never fails to keep us interested. What appears to be bizarre to us is the norm there. The trend was validated after a recent dog show in Japan saw most of the competing pups had this hairstyle to some extent. We’re not sure if we have the patience for the trend to take off on our side of the world. I mean the pictures, you guys.
