Beyonce and Jay Z
More rumors are swirling around Beyonce and Jay Z about his alleged history of cheating. The first cracks in the marriage came hard with Solange’s elevator beat down. In the days after Beyonce assured her fan’s that nothing was wrong by posting an Instagram picture of the two sister together. It’s interesting that Beyonce’s first public reaction was to stand up for her sister and not her husband. Most recently while on tour Beyonce changed some of the lyrics to her song “Resentment.” The full article and concert video on People.com
Opie and Anthony
Radio host Anthony Cumia of the long running Opie and Anthony show was fired this week after a long series of Tweets he posted after being assaulted in New York. Something seems off about this story. The supposed picture that started it all is just of the woman walking down the street under scaffolding. If he wasn’t talking a picture of her, what the hell was he taking a picture of? Plus the things he said on Twitter really are insanely awful. The lesson we should learn, whenever you are extremely emotional, it’s a good idea to avoid all social media. Put your phone away.

Australian Rugby player Todd Carney was fired when a picture surfaced of him pissing into his mouth at a urinal. Carney was the league’s 2010 player of the year. Also soon after news broke of Carney’s termination, Australian football/soccer player Brodie Moles released a similar picture of himself drinking his own piss in a show of support for Carney.

One last point about filters. The theory is inciting in the beginning because we all have a fantasy of finally finding that needle in a hay stack gay. You can finally find that tall hairy dom total top Asian bubba cub who loves his ass licked by his miniature black power lifting boyfriend. But the truth of the matter is that regardless of the filter used, Growlr can only show you men that are already around you. If he’s not already there, no filter is going to bring him closer. (that includes you single bears looking for love) Even in the depths of New York and LA you’re still going to see many of the same faces on day after day. The bear world just isn’t that big. Plus even if you do finally find your fantasy Asian bubba cub you’ll get a dose of reality when you realize he’s only into mixed race transgender grad students.
P.S. With all kidding aside, bears complain about Growlr a lot but we are really spoiled. When’s the last time you looked at Grindr? It literally has had almost no major changes or updates since the iPhone 3. So while Growlr might not be totally perfect, let’s take a moment to acknowledge the creators did a pretty kick ass job and it’s a hell of a lot better than all the other choices.
Seriously, download Grinder for a flashback to 2009.
