Olivia Jade 

It’s hard to say if Olivia Jade is a winner or loser this week. The daughter of actress Lori Loughlin has a pretty successful career as an influencer, but found herself in the middle of a college admissions scandal this week. 

Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo have been accused of sending $500,000 in bribes to get their daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella into USC as rowing recruits. The only problem is, neither of their daughters row. 

The thing is, before any of this even came to light, Olivia Jade was a successful YouTuber in her own right. She vlogged about her rich lifestyle to over 1.9 million followers. She also vlogs her day to day college life. So, is she a winner or a loser? Sure, she’s getting loads more attention now, but it’s not exactly for the right reasons. She was also recently dropped by Sephora, with whom she had a palette collaboration. 


It doesn’t even sound like this kid wanted to go to college in the first place. Parents, eh? 

David Beckham

If you haven’t seen James Corden’s prank on David Beckham this week, make 10 minutes to do so now.

You got proper done for, Dave. 


The Gleesons

It’s official. The Gleeson brothers are going to star in their dad Brendan’s directorial debut.

Psychic Still Sky Sky

The short film, Psychic, will air on Sky Arts at 9pm tomorrow, St Patrick’s Day. 

The film was written by Rory Gleeson, and tells the story of a psychic played by Brendan, who is forced out of retirement by his two sons (Domhnall and Brian) and taken on the road. Fergus Gleeson, the fourth son, provided music for the film. It’s Brendan’s first time to work with all four sons. 

Sounds like a joy, so do tune in if you can. 

Una Healy 

Una Healy is doing something we all secretly wish we could do. She’s sticking it to her ex through the medium of song. 

The former Saturdays singer released her first solo track since her split with husband Ben Foden, aptly named Strangers.

It features lines such as 

You made feel like I was going crazy,  believing all those lies that you fed me.
Did I ever really get to know you, Did you really care for me like your supposed to.
So save your breath, There’s nothing left worth keeping anyway, We are so much better off, To go our separate ways.


Lady Gaga 

Lady Gaga took this amazing short story and made it a reality. 

After rumours she was pregnant, she simply took it as an opportunity to announce her upcoming album. 

Well played. Does she ever sleep?
