Dance Like Everybody In Congress Is Watching

Congresswoman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, made headline news this last Friday due to a video that was leaked of her having sex in the Oval Office.

Just kidding. It was a video of her dancing. In college. In a “Breakfast Club” parody mash-up. Wearing all her clothes. And you guuuuuuuuuys, she looks genuinely happy, like she was having a good time when she made the video.

You can dislike the congressman and her liberal-pushing agenda all you want – disagreeing with her politics is ok. But trying to smear her name because she was DANCING? Now, conservatives are grasping at straws.

Before I saw the video in question, I was really hoping the choreographed dance had actually occurred during the recent congressional swear-in. How awesome would THAT be if Cortez rolled up in there like it was the club, doing the “Look Alive” dance? Maybe ALL politicians would be happier if they started every meeting doing the Harlem Shake or Macarena.

Anyway, the video is anything but scandalous and it’s crazy to think that these sort of things are being used as ammunition to attack a person’s character or leading abilities.

If you missed what all the fuss was about… watch the video here.



When New Years Eve Goes Terribly Wrong

New Year’s has come and gone — hopefully, it was a wonderful night for you.

Some of us rang in the annual event at a club or bar with an absurd cover charge, schmoozing with half-naked people and grinding to Cardi B.

Some of us cuddled with our significant others on the couch and watched the New York Times Square ball drop. Some of us said “screw it” and went to bed early because we just couldn’t wait for the disaster that was 2018 to be over.

However if you did decide to ring in the New Year, hopefully, it went better than it did for these people — who share their NYE horror stories and may make you think twice about ever going out again.


Saoirse Ronan Ditched The Golden Globes For Her PJs

Actress Saoirse Ronan was a presenter at the 2019 Golden Globes. However, she admitted to Ellen that left right after so she had time to order pizza, change into pajamas, and still catch the rest of the telecast! The “Mary Queen of Scots” star also revealed her bag of stolen items from the awards show, and how she has serious dreams of becoming a waitress.
