Winner and loser of the week: Michelle Obama slays in "Carpool Karaoke"; Tom Hiddleston has to be Taylor Swift's boyfriend
Michelle Obama. While the world went into complete meltdown mode over Melania Trump's Republication National Convention speech - parts of which were taken from Michelle Obama's 2008 convention speech - the current First Lady was staying classy. The Internet waited patiently for Obama to tweet out a response, hoping for a Katy Perry-style reaction gif. But nothing. Instead, we got the most epic "Carpool Karaoke" with Late Late Show host James Corden. The two talked about the secret service, joked about being members of Beyonce's "Beyhive" and discussed the rare treat of leaving the White House. "I've been in a car - it was months ago - with my daughter who learned to drive," she said while the two drove loops around 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. "And that was the only time in seven and a half years that I've been in the passenger seat listening to music, rocking out like this." We saw Michelle dance to Stevie Wonder, Bey's Single Ladies and the song This Is For My Girls, which benefits Obama's Let Girls Learn initiative. The highlight, of course, was watching her dance to Get Ur Freak On with Missy Elliot in the back seat. And while we still hope for a side-eye remark on the plagiarism, this was a solid consolation prize.
Tom Hiddleston. He had it made for all of two weeks. The 35-year-old Avengers actor was dating the world's hottest, most-loved celebrity...and then that phone call happened. If you've been living under a rock, Kim Kardashian exposed Taylor Swift by revealing a taped conversation Swift had with rapper Kanye West over the song Famous - a conversation Swift denied ever happened. In the video, Swift can be heard giving the okay on certain lyrics, and thanking West for asking permission to use her name in the controversial line "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex." Longtime fans and haters were quick to respond, flooding Swift's Instagram with snake emojis. It seemed like everyone had something to say about the celeb feud, but we're sure nobody got quite the ear-full like Swift's new boo, Hiddleston. Poor guy. He had to have known this would be coming. He went from dating the "it" girl to the world's most-hated squad boss in less time than it takes to type out #TaylorSwiftIsOverParty. So don't count on him wearing his "I *heart* T.S." shirt out in public anytime soon, at least not while the streets are filled with memorial murals for Swift's career.
Sorry, Tom. This is what you came for.
