The Newsroom reveals what’s hot on the internet right now, from the moustache craze going viral to the “Single Ladies” star swapping pop for country.
It’s November, which means you’ve probably noticed more men than usual are sporting moustaches. Or at least the start of them. But why grow the mo? Men around the world are taking part in the annual Movember event to show their support for men’s health issues, including prostate cancer, testicular cancer and suicide prevention.
With over 200,000 mentions on Facebook, the trend has once again taken over social media, a good thing given any mention of the mo raises awareness for the cause.

Walt Disney Pictures has released the first official pictures of the live-action remake of favourite childhood tale Beauty and the Beast. Stars Emma Watson and Dan Stevens graced the front cover of the latest Entertainment Weekly magazine.
The cover feature includes all you need to know about new songs on the soundtrack, what happened on set and cast details. Many more images are expected to surface over the coming days with the movie set to hit cinemas in the US in early 2017.
She’s done the VMAs and BET Awards, but now superstar Beyonce has performed at the Country Music Association Awards that were held earlier this week.
Earlier in the year, the songstress wowed fans with an epic 18-minute medley of her songs off her newest album Lemonade at the MTV Video Music Awards. Months earlier, she treated viewers to a powerful performance of her song Freedom with Kendrick Lamar at the BET Awards.
Then on Wednesday night Beyonce proved her versatility by getting into the full swing of the country theme, performing her southern country-inspired song Daddy Lessons with The Dixie Chicks!
While the Dixie Chicks posted on their Instagram account about “one of the greatest weeks” of their life, the rest of us are left wondering why the CMAs are dulling down Beyonce’s surprise appearance by removing links from their social media.
I’m sure there is more to come about this story, but until then, yes Beyoncé, “You slay, all day”.
More than one million people across the world have united on Facebook to support the #StandingRockIndianReservation.
Earlier this week, the reservation’s Facebook page prompted their followers to check in at the site, located in North Dakota, no matter where they were, in an attempt to thwart the police’s ability to identify and lock up protestors who actually were on site.
The movement, led by the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, aims to protect the sacred land that will soon be damaged if plans to build an oil pipeline go ahead. The number of check-ins continues to grow as more and more people show their support for the demonstration.
Yes girls (and guys, if it’s your thing!) it’s coming back! Network Ten has officially stated that Offspring will return to the small screen for a seventh season in 2017.
The comedy-drama, which stars everyone’s favourite actress Asher Keddie, has been a ratings hit for the network since returning after a mini hiatus, averaging over one million viewers per episode, so it’s no wonder Offspring has been commissioned for another 10 episodes.
Ten program chief Beverley McGarvey says, “We’re thrilled that Asher and the team are coming back and our intention is to bring back as many of the main cast as possible.” It’s expected that Ten will roll out its full 2017 programming schedule later today. – Compiled from various web sources by Vivien Wickham and Brandon Atkins.
