This Is the Most Streamed Song Ever (It Might Surprise You)

And 7 other things to check out on the Internet this week

Here at The Everygirl, we understand the nature of busy women. You barely have time to eat breakfast in the morning, let alone spend the day surfing the web. That’s why this week, we’re sharing some of our favorite articles on pop culture, design, and more.

 

1. Despacito is now the most streamed song ever and I fully support this.

They really know how to do it down in Puerto Rico and if you’re not singing Despacito now on repeat in your head you have no soul.

 

2. You can sleep in a heated bubble in Iceland underneath the Northern Lights and this is literal magic.

Let’s all go!

 

3. Adidas and Gucci are suing Forever21 for using geometric shapes and this is the world we live in now.

Can you just let me buy my cheap knockoffs in peace, JEEZ.

 

4. You need to see this SNL writer’s responses to Trump’s tweets.

I have no idea why I love this so much.

 

5. Ed Sheeran quit Twitter then claimed it wasn’t because of that *cough* gameofthronescameo.

Listen Ed, you’re a great songwriter and all, but GTFO of Game of Thrones I am not here for you WHAT ABOUT THE WOLVES.

 

6. How 7 women take up space in their everyday lives and this is so incredibly beautiful and important.

You are allowed to matter. You are allowed to spread out, get comfortable, and be yourself.

 

7. Elon Musk has apparently received verbal government approval to build a multi-state hyperloop that could get you from NY to DC in 29 minutes.

~fancy~

 

8. O.J. Simpson has been granted parole and this face right here is giving me a real concern.

Remember when he wrote that book If I Did It, good lord America why.

    This is priceless! Every Friday I read this section to catch up, and today the first thing I see is a note about Despacito. I’m from Puerto Rico and still can’t believe this is the most streamed song ever. Glad you like it. 😉

    In the spirit of #6, how women take up space in their everyday lives, I’m going to take up space by expressing my thoughts. This is something I have never done on public forums. But I was just taken aback by the way these women take up space that was considered beautiful and important. I was expecting this read to be inspirational, and one or two were, but the rest were behaviors that are socially rude and inconsiderate for any person. To refuse to move out of the way? To talk too loudly? I don’t think it’s beautiful for us to be practicing being inconsiderate. We shouldn’t be pushed around, but we can be polite to make room for everyone. When I am at a restaurant, I don’t care to hear someone else’s conversation over my own. These are things that each of us need to consider to make living amongst each other pleasant and comfortable. We can’t be selfish and try to prove a point by making others around us less comfortable.

      Hi Diana, thank you for sharing your opinion! Taking up space definitely means different things to different women and we can all approach the topic from a unique personal perspective — as the ladies in the Refinery article did and you did by sharing your thoughts. Thanks for reading!

      I completely agree. Too often we’ve fallen into the trap of thinking that the best way to help raise up groups that have historically been minimized or discriminated against is to push down others (typically majorities who’ve historically benefited from the suffering of others). But what we need to realize is that the only way to move forward in a way that’s healthy and respectful of everyone is to try and raise EVERYONE up.
      Women shouldn’t be trying to raise themselves up by being rude and shoving others down – it’s about everyone having a voice now, not giving women a voice by drowning out all other voices instead. That path only leads to more problems. Equality in society means EVERYONE gets an equal voice; it doesn’t mean pushing down voices that have historically been heard.

  • I have not and will not listen to Despacito. Bieber is a gross excuse for a human being and I refuse to support his sub-standard career….just saying.
