Reporter has a major fan moment about Ricky Martin in front of Ricky Martin

TwitterFacebook

It’s not every day you accidentally spill your celebrity crush secrets to that very celebrity crush. 

Chicago’s WGN reporter Ana Belaval experienced just that last week when she found herself on-air via satellite with none other than Ricky Martin, who has been promoting his latest project, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. 

Belaval got a chance to ask Martin about Puerto Rico and on-the ground recovery efforts in the wake of Hurricane Maria. After the interview, she began freaking out about the fact she was able to speak to the singer and actor, completely unaware that he was still tuned in.  Read more…

The comedian posted a photo of his new Hillary Clinton tattoo to Instagram on Friday alongside a very nice caption.

How a lifelong Gerard Way fan managed to interview him without vomiting

TwitterFacebook

They say to never meet your heroes, but I did it anyway. 

I’ve put Gerard Way — former My Chemical Romance frontman, current comic book writer — on a pedestal for about 13 years. He seemed a genius, an impossibly aloof icon. 

But in real life? He’s just a nice dude who is mildly insane and makes weird, good sh*t. 

I saw that the second we started talking about our home state, New Jersey. Suddenly it dawns on me: he’s that kid who lived down the block and that everyone thought was a little off because he listened to weird ambient noise while he made comics.  Read more…

George Clooney with an elderly fan sparks hilarious Photoshop battle

TwitterFacebook

There is no other love like the love between this fan and George Clooney—a love so strong that it elicited a Photoshop battle on Reddit. 

The original image was uploaded to Reddit by sipping_mai_tais, and immediately sparked some impressive Photoshop skills. In the image, a woman is caressing Clooney’s face, as one naturally does when presented the opportunity. Clooney on the other hand seems to be staring at her soul. Despite the throng of people, it’s just two of them and pretty damn pure connection by the looks of it.

Samsung Galaxy Note FE (Fan Edition) Review

Introduction
The Samsung Galaxy Note Fan Edition needs no introduction. In fact, no device we can think of has garnered more visibility while its actual release was so limited in size and scope. The Galaxy Note FE could arguably be tagged as a simple reincarnation of the Note 7, and that is certainly a valid observation.

Samsung chose to refurbish a large selection of returned devices. Using salvageable components from the beleaguered Note 7 series, Samsung was able to reduce gross waste, and even extract materials that could be put to use in other products.

During the time that …

Samsung Galaxy Note Fan Edition: Unboxing and impressions

There is so much to love about Samsung smartphones, especially the displays and cameras. There are things that some may find a little frustrating too, like inconsistent performance over time. It was the latter that always drove me from keeping my SIM card in a Galaxy S series for any appreciable period of time.

However, the Note series was different, despite the same hiccups I would inevitably encounter as I put the device through its paces, those perfect moments where the S-Pen was handy would prove invaluable – not in a sense of professional productivity, but out of propensity to make …

Samsung Galaxy Note Fan Edition teardown reveals a new, smaller-sized battery

There is no need to remind you of what happened with Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 smartphones last year, as their flammability, due to faulty batteries, still hits headlines and is subject of anecdotes to this day. Well, last week was kind of a reminder itself, as the Korean tech giant launched the Galaxy Note Fan Edition, effectively re-offering the Note 7 in a slightly revamped, but apparently safer build.

We wrote about what sets the Note FE apart from its problematic predecessor at first sight, taking note of the omitted Samsung logo under the earpiece, the integrated Bixby support and Samsung …
