Drake Paid A Surprise Visit To 'Drake
University' And The Students Were Sleeping All through
While on tour in Des Mones, Iowa, Drake made a special visit to Drake University - the post-secondary institution that shares his name - but disappointed fans by arriving in the dead of night. Drake even strolled down the university’s “Greek row” in search of some fans to greet — but apparently everyone must have had a big exam in the morning, because the students seemed to be fast asleep.
When they woke up in the morning, however, students saw Drizzy’s Instgram and were dismayed to learn they missed out on his visit, and have now launched a "bring bank drake" campaign asking for a do-over. - ET CANADA
Halle Berry Fires Back at Instagram Troll: I Am Not at All Ashamed of My Children
Be careful what you say in the comments because Halle Berryis watching.
The Kidnapstar shared a picture of her two children,Nahla Aubrey and Maceo Martinez, on Instagram Thursday, but to protect their privacy Berry cropped out half of their faces. All that can be seen is her two kids' beaming smiles and the rest of their bodies, which one Internet troll interpreted as Berry being "ashamed" of her children.
The critic had called out the actress for concealing her children's faces on several occasions, so Berry finally had enough and responded.
"I've noticed you have said this several times now so let me be clear-- I'm not at all ashamed of children. I try to find creative ways to incorporate them into my feed because they are the biggest part of my life, but I also work very hard to keep their identities as private as I can considering they are only children," Berry wrote.
"It's my belief, and I'm not criticizing others who have different beliefs, that it's my job as their mother to protect their privacy as best I can. When they grow and they're of age and they want share their images on the internet, that will be for them to decide, not me. Feel me? Have a beautiful day."
