"We don't need to be putting black women against each other!"
The Rihanna Navy and the Beyhive have been on not-so-friendly terms on social media following the announcement of the 2017 Grammy Awards nominations.
Although RiRi expressed gratitude for her whopping eight nods, the Navy felt that she was snubbed after Anti didn't receive a nom for Album of the Year over Beyoncé's Lemonade. Naturally, Bey's fans wasted no time in coming to the defence of their Queen.
But Rihanna quickly cleared things up on the 'gram, commenting on a fan's photo, "I'm petty af, yes. But this is just unnecessary! I wish y'all would drop this topic and see things from the bigger picture! We don't need to be putting black women against each other! We deserve to be celebrated and the Grammy Academy agrees!"
So true, Rih.
Because haters gonna hate.
We all know how fun Instagram can be. The comments section though...not so fun. The social media platform (finally!) is working to change all that. Here are the three biggest updates it's rolling out.
1) You can turn comments on and off for individual posts–even after you've posted. One of your posts not getting the love you thought it would? Shut those comments off. Change your mind a few days later? Switch them back on. A few accounts already have this feature, but soon it will be rolling out to everyone.
2) In the past, those with private accounts could only delete followers they'd already approved by blocking them. Now, you can simple remove them as a follower and no, they won't get notified that you did. Think of it as the unfriending of Insta.
3) And now for our favourite update: You can finally like other people's comments! Just tap the little heart icon to show the commenter some love. According to the blog post announcing the new features, being able to like comments "lets you show support and encourages positivity throughout the community."
Viola Desmond will be on the $10 bill.
There's an excting (and long overdue TBH) change coming to Canada's $10 bills: They will now feature the face of an extraordinary Canadian woman.
The shortlist for the spot was announced earlier this year, and included the suffragette Idola Saint-Jean and Olympian Bobbie Rosenfeld, but it was civl rights activist Viola Desmond who the Bank of Canada ultimately chose for the prime spot on our blue bank note.
It was for such a time as this that Heritage Minutes were created, so we'll refer you to the spot released about Ms. Desmond last year for the full primer on the Nova Scotia native (but the TL:DR version is that she was an entrepreneur ahead of her time who played a pivotal role in the Canadian civil rights struggle):
The bills will be in circulation in 2018.
