Kourtney Kardashian’s Son Mason Gets TikTok After She Deletes His IG

Kourtney Kardashian’s oldest child, Mason Disick, went ahead and made himself a TikTok account after his mom removed him from Instagram for spilling the real tea about his aunt, Kylie Jenner, and her baby daddy, Travis Scott, over Instagram live recently. It’s true that kids say the dardnest things, and more ten than not, they’re telling the truth. That’s why it was such a big deal when Kourtney Kardashian’s 10-year-old son, Mason, answered a KarJenner fan’s question about his youngest aunt, Kylie Jenner, and her baby daddy and rumoured on-again boyfriend, Travis Scott. The user asked Mason if Kylie and Travis were actually back together, something that the famous co-parents have seemingly been leading the public to believe. However, Mason flat-out denied it, exposing some internal secrets within the reality show family. After the clip him shutting down the Kylie/Travis rumours went viral, Kourtney deleted Mason’s Instagram account altogether.

Kourtney revealed on her own IG live stream that she and Mason’s dad, Scott Disick, decided to deactivate his account because they felt he was too young to be on social media. However, their point didn’t exactly sink into Mason’s brain, as he has now decided to join a different social media app: TikTok. 

The oldest member the new generation Kardashians bragged that he “went viral” and complained that he “would have had 2.7 million] followers] by now if I kept it up.” He also responded to a few questions from fans about his famous family, revealing that he hasn’t seen his cousin, Stormi, in awhile “because corona.” However, it looks like his parents have now taken control this account, too, and promptly deleted it, as well. Both TikTok and Instagram have an age restriction 13 years or older, so Mason is technically not allowed to be on those apps anyway. Maybe he’ll sneak his way onto Twitter next.

Trump explained the idea to reporters outside the White House, Saturday: “We’d like to see New York quarantined because it’s a hotspot — New York, New Jersey, maybe one or two other places, certain parts Connecticut.

“We might not have to do it but there’s a possibility that sometime today we’ll do a quarantine — short-term, two weeks for New York, probably New Jersey and parts Connecticut,” he added.

Saturday afternoon he tweeted, “I am giving consideration to a QUARANTINE developing “hot spots”, New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. A decision will be made, one way or another, shortly.”

Many states are coming down hard on New Yorkers looking for an escape. Nearby, the National Guard, in Rhode Island, is pulling over any New York plates and enforcing a two-week quarantine travelers who plan to stay in the state. The National Guard is also going door-to-door to enforce the quarantine.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo hopes New Yorkers will not have to avoid any quarantine, telling reporters, “I don’t know how that could be legally enforceable. … Not even understanding what it is, I don’t like the sound it.”

50 Cent Sends Shots To Donald Trump On Instagram

As the coronavirus pandemic forces people into self-quarantine and scientists around the globe work tirelessly to find a cure (or at least a vaccine) for COVID-19, Donald Trump and former host of The Apprentice is facing criticism for not getting ahead of the situation.

On Saturday (March 28), 50 Cent made it perfectly clear how he feels about the way Trump is handling the pandemic50 Cent Sends Shots To Donald Trump On Instagram , sharing an Instagram post that read, “You wanted a reality show host as president. Well now you’re on Survivor.

He wrote in the caption, “yeah we fucked up big time, but we gonna be alright watch. LOL.”

It was only two weeks ago that 50 was hitting a strip club in New York City as the coronavirus was making its way across the globe. In video of his wild night out, 50 threw dollar bills at the dancers and wasn’t adhering to the social distancing rules set in place.

But the situation has grown exponentially more serious since then. The United States now has more reported cases of COVID-19 than any other country in the world. New York alone has over 52,000 cases.

50 Cent Hits NYC Strip Club Despite Coronavirus Pandemic

New York officials forecast the apex of the pandemic in the state is still 14 to 21 days away. At that point, the state expects it will need 140,000 hospital beds. According to the latest report from the CDC, there are 103,321 reported cases in the U.S. and 1,668 deaths.

YouTube Music App Can Now Displays Lyrics on iOS and Android

YouTube Music now displays lyrics to listeners on the iOS and Android apps.

Users can tap the “i” button while a song is playing to see the lyrics. YouTube Music finally joins the ranks of Apple Music and Spotify, showcasing lyrics to listeners. The only downside – all lyrics are static, you have to scroll through manually.

While YouTube Music lyrics are available for some songs, not all songs have the option.

LyricFind is still the main partner for powering YouTube Music’s lyrics – despite being caught stealing lyrics from Genius. That revelation ended up with Genius suing Google over the stolen lyrics.
Apple made its Genius partnership official last year – complete with original content.

Recent albums like Childish Gambino’s 3.15.20 and Jay Electronica’s A Written Testimony are missing lyrics. YouTube says they receive lyrics daily from LyricFind, but there’s no timeframe for when a song will get its lyrics.

This new feature is only available in the YouTube Music mobile app – not the web player.

Sorry, desktop listeners. YouTube says the feature will come to the web player “soon.” YouTube seems to be prioritizing those who use the mobile app. Just recently, YouTube Music finally got a long-awaited feature – the ability to . Many Google Play Music users have been hesitant to switch, thanks to YouTube Music’s lack of features.

YouTube Music supports FLAC, M4A, MP3, OGG, and WMA files and metadata. One neat feature, YouTube Music removes duplicates from your library automatically. Despite the ability to upload files to YouTube Music, there is still no ability to migrate Play Music libraries easily.

GPM users are being told to “stay tuned” for a way to transfer music between the two seamlessly. The music upload feature also seems to be a selective rollout – some accounts have it, and some don’t.

Twitch 'Stream Aid 2020' Live to Support World Health Organization

Twitch’s live event, ‘Stream Aid 2020’, is helping raise money for the World Health Organization.

The 12-hour stream features celebrity guests, music, and games like Fortnite. The event went live on the main Twitch website at noon EST. Twitch hopes to raise as much money as possible to help the WHO fight COVID-19.

Diplo, Die Antwoord, and Charlie Puth are just a few of the music stars stopping by.

Gaming streamers on the platform are also headlining a tournament. Those streamers are participating in doing their part to help raise funds to fight coronavirus.

“Literally, every single person who’s in my live stream has someone who’s affected,” one streamer said. “A lot of people are a little nervous. They don’t know how long they’re going to be out from work, out from school, and they realize how serious it is.”

Twitch is rapidly growing as more and more people are forced to stay home. While the site is geared primarily toward gamers, it has seen an during this crisis.

The site even partnered with SoundCloud to help to affiliate status. Twitch affiliate status allows users to monetize their channels and collect donations from the audience. Twitch itself is no stranger to live streams to benefit causes.

Last year, a game streamer raised more than $2 million in 24 hours for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. Other charity organizations like Awesome Games Done Quick also use the platform to reach its audience to benefit their chosen charities.

Some users have concerns about Twitch’s ability to keep the show rolling, though.

Last year during the Fortnite event, Twitch went offline with 3.4 million concurrent viewers. Since the coronavirus outbreak, Twitch has seen numbers rise drastically. So far, the stream seems to be staying up – Amazon probably learned a lesson last year in catering to more massive crowds.

Donovan Mitchell Has Message For Fans After Coronavirus Recovery

Donovan Mitchell and his teammate, Rudy Gobert, both ended up catching the Coronavirus that has been making its way throughout the globe over the past few months. The pandemic is about to reach its peak but for Gobert and Mitchell, the worst is finally over. They were recently told that they have been cleared the virus and will be able to continue their lives as normal.

Mitchell understands just how bad this virus can be. With this in mind, he has decided to educate people and yesterday, he even took to his Twitter account where he had a serious message for everyone at home who is going through quarantine. As he said, it’s important to stay the course because even if you don’t feel sick, you could still be carrying the virus.

“On a more serious note… let’s continue to practice social distancing and remember… even though you may not have symptoms you still may be infected!!” Mitchell wrote. “Let’s keep everyone in our prayers and stay safe.”

Due to COVID-19, the entire NBA season has been put on pause and won’t resume until it is safe to get into large gatherings again. If you’re sad that the NBA is gone and want it back sooner rather than later, you should live by Mitchell’s words wisdom.

Cardi B Calls For "Tiger King" Joe Exotic’s Freedom

It seems like everyone has been tuning into Netflix’s Tiger King this week. Viewers have been hashing out their thoughts surrounding the incarcerated Joe Exotic ever since Netflix debuted the docuseries recently. Joe Exotic’s found some pretty famous supporters, as well, including Cardi B.

Seeing as how she’s been practicing social distancing, Cardi B has clearly had some time to dive into Netflix. Though she admitted on Thursday that she was lost in the second episode because she was having , she clearly caught up on all the details. “Carol you think you slick bitch,” she wrote on Twitter. She later retweeted a fan meme that read, “Carole Baskins fed her husband to the tigers.” That’s been a running theory throughout the series that Carole has denied. 

Exotic is currently locked up for allegedly trying to set up the murder Carole Baskin, who serves as the onscreen antagonist in the series. However, Cardi pledged to free the man. She even went as far as vowing to launch a GoFundMe in his honor. “Bout to start a gundme account for Joe .He shall be free,” she wrote. Chances are she’s joking, though, but she clearly got invested in the series. 

Joe Exotic has filed a $94M lawsuit against the federal government claiming that they’ve discriminated against and conspired against him to have him locked up.
