Winner and loser of the week in pop culture: We'll never 'like' Twitter hearts — plus Serena, Blake and Gwen
Winner of the week
Serena Williams: Okay, yes, she’s INCREDIBLY into herself after chasing down a thief who tried to steal her phone, to the tune of hurdling chairs at a Chinese restaurant and likening herself to a superhero. Was her over-the-top Facebook post one of the most annoying things we’ve ever read? Yes. Does she still win the week for owning that dude? 100 percent.
Loser of the Week
It’s our first ever tie, everyone!
First, Twitter hearts: What on earth? It was so Instagram of Twitter to change favorites to likes and stars to hearts. It doesn’t even make sense. Shouldn’t a heart stand for favorite and a star for like? The good news: There’s a hack out there that allows you to choose any emoji you want to replace the heart, so you can taco any tweet you want from now on.
Blake Shelton: First, we’re mad at him for dating Gwen Stefani. She was meant to be with Gavin Rossdale — or if not him, any rocker — okay? Second, Shelton had his rep announce that he’s moved on with his Voice co-star 20 minutes before the CMAs started, giving his ex-wife, Miranda Lambert, approximately zero time to prepare for an evening chock full of gossip. Thumbs down to this guy.
