Tuesday’s Question of the Day:  I was chatting on Facebook last night with a friend of mine who lives in the city (Denver, to be exact).  We got to talking about the politically correct world we live in now-a-days, and it brought her to her ride home from work last night.  She was riding the city bus from her job in downtown Denver to her apartment in Englewood (a suburb just outside Denver proper).  At one of the stops, she took notice that a lady got on the bus and all of the seats were full.  Of course you can hang on to those "death handles" that have you swaying from one side of the bus to the other while in motion - but she was shocked that not one GUY who had an actual SEAT offered up his seat to the woman.  Now, call me old fashioned but I was raised to do exactly what none of the guys on that bus did - to give up your seat and offer it to the lady.  In today's world of female equality and empowerment, do you think it's still the right thing to do, for a guy to give up his seat to the lady?  Or are we past that?  After chatting with her about it, she eventually said that she might even be INSULTED if a dude opened a door or offered her his seat.  What do you think?  Do we still live in a "ladies first" world?  Or is the "ladies first" way actually offensive now?  (Broc) (Join the conversation on our Facebook page!)



Bonnie Tyler's 1983 hit, "Total Eclipse of the Heart," has climbed to number 1 on the iTunes charts as the popular song became an unofficial anthem for yesterday's total solar eclipse.  The song, from Tyler's 1982 album, "Faster Than the Speed of Night," surpassed Luis Fonsi and the Biebs' mega-hit "Despacito" yesterday, and is priced at $1.29 in the iTunes app.  Tyler performed the hit on yesterday's Good Morning America and said she was thrilled to sing the song.  She said "I never get tired of singing the song!  It's a great song and it gets everyone in the mood."  She performed it on the show via video feed from the special Royal Carribean Total Eclipse Cruise.  She's on-board the cruise with DNCE.  I did NOT drink the kool-aid yesterday, and refused to be your eclipse cliche - and did NOT play the song at the moment the eclipse peaked at 11:32a or whatever it was - and boy did I hear about it.  I'm sorry!

Taylor Swift has the interwebs in an uproar over what exactly her next move will be.  Three days after she quite literally disappeared from all major social networking sites, she started posting clues on her Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds as well as on as the total solar eclipse was mesmerizing America midday yesterday.  In the midst of the eclipse yesterday, Taylor posted a mysterious clip of what looked like a snake's tail popping up on her social media.  Swift has yet to confirm anything herself, but the internet has decided that this is the beginning of a Taylor Swift album - or at least SINGLE drop in the coming days.  Nobody has a timeline, and nobody but she herself knows what's to come next... but one thing everybody DOES know is that if there's one person on this planet who knows how to get EVERYBODY'S attention, it's most definitely the one and only Tay-Tay.

Katy Perry opened up about rumors that she was getting back together with ex-pseudo-boyfriend Orlando Bloom yesterday after the two were spotted together at an Ed Sheeran concert earlier this month.  She said “Well, you know, I think people are in and out of your life, and it’s nice to keep people you love around you. When you get older, lines get blurred. And you know what, I’m really busy. I’m about to go on tour for another year.  People Magazine reported last week that the two have been in touch since they broke up in February.  The source who spilled the beans to People said “They ended things as friends, they continue to be friends.”  And going back to Taylor Swift who somehow lands in EVERY headline when she wants to, Katy also said of their feud yesterday, that she’d “love for the beef to end. I’d love to take it off the barbecue.”  She continued, saying “I’m down, but, I haven’t heard anything of it.”
