The Week That Was: 26th Jan to 1st Feb
It’s been one hell of a week folks. But any week that starts with the Grammys just HAS TO be entertaining. There are so many things to cover, that I’m going to get right to it. But wait, where are my manners? Hope you’re doing well and had a rocking week too. Anyway, back to business…
The Grammy Weddings
One of the things I love about international award functions is, they always push the envelope. How else can you justify 33 couples (same-sex, heterosexual, interracial) tying the knot right there at the 56th Grammy Awards live on TV? Only 33 couples in the whole wide world can say Queen Latifah, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Mary Lambert and Madonna performed at their wedding. Phew! It’s the Grammy Awards, they always cause a stir. There’s lots to love and lots to talk about, but if this year we had to pick just one highlight, it would have to be this.
Next Bigg Boss Host?
Ever since Salman Khan dropped hints on the last season of Bigg Boss that he might not return as host, there’s only been one question on everyone’s mind. …who can fill his very coveted shoes? Salman is so loved and revered as a host, that we couldn’t imagine anyone else taking his place. But rumours have it, that the producers have pulled the ultimate coup and Ranveer Singh will take over as host next season. His affable personality, outgoing nature and eccentricities sure make him an interesting person; but will that translate to good hosting skills and good communication with the inmates? Oh! We cannot wait to find out.
The RaGa Saga
You may ignore politics all you want, but when social media is abuzz and all your timelines are simultaneously talking about only one thing, you have to peep in and find out what the hell is going on! That’s exactly what I did, and here’s what I found out. Arnab Goswami and Rahul Gandhi spoke, it didn’t go so well. Hilarity ensued, and as things naturally progress now days, memes followed.

The Schumacher Update
Here’s the update on this sporting legend’s health: Schumacher is being taken out of artificial coma gradually and that’s the good news. Medics are believed to have started medical procedure earlier this week. But unfortunately all other reports are hocus pocus as experts say there is still no guarantee he will make a full recovery. Well Schumi, just like your family, we also believe you won’t give up. So here’s wishing him a speedy recovery; the race is still on.
The New Football Anthem
The 2014 Football World Cup is almost here and as always it shall give us the song of the year. FIFA, the soccer association that puts on the World Cup, announced that the Pitbull track “We Are One (Ole Ola)” is the sporting event’s official song. The song will feature guest appearances by Jennifer Lopez and Brazilian singer Claudie Leitte and they’ll perform it together during the World Cup Opening Ceremonies on June 12th at Brazil’s Arena de São Paulo. Cannot wait to hear it! Hope it lives up to Shakira’s Waka Waka!
Kalki Anurag Splitvilla?
This talented couple is reportedly taking time out and giving each other space. The split between the couple who met and fell in love while working for ‘Dev D’ has been in the news for quite some time. And in the latest development, Kalki has finally moved to another apartment. Hope the space helps this lovely couple to think things over and get back with each other. Would hate to see them break up (I have a soft corner for quirky couples).
Speaking of soft corners, this show was literally my whole childhood. To see this mini reunion made my week, sharing it ‘cause it might make yours too. Look what happened when the cast of Full House reunited on Late Night with Jimmy Falon. #Adorbs
Ps: Uncle Jesse, still hot!
