It was a close call for the top story on social media this week, between Trump (yet again), the complete f#%* up that Fall Out Boy made of the Ghost Busters theme song, and the half-naked brides walking the catwalk for the Australian Bridal Fashion Week.
It happens every year; women love it and men not so much… until now.
Out with the gowns ladies! Models took to the catwalk for Australian Bridal Fashion Week yesterday in either next to nothing or a little too much. The designer, Millela Couture, displayed dramatic head pieces, gothic looks and long black veils. It was visually stunning and dramatic but is it making a mockery of brides and the sacrament of marriage?
Other designs also looked a little out of place for a wedding, including bizarre ruffled creations in very non-traditional red and yellow.

Personally, I like the originality and difference but I have to agree that it is taking away from the traditional wedding theme.
Trump took his New York City speech yesterday as an opportunity to call out Hillary Clinton as a “world class liar”.

In what is an extremely heated electoral campaign Trump isn’t showing any signs of slowing down in his outspoken ways. And now Bernie Sanders has hit back saying this morning: “We have to defeat Trump and I intend to do everything I can.”

As election time gets closer Twitter is a stir with embarrassment and confusion at American politics and I have to completely agree. I honestly thought Australia was the laughing stock of politics when we were going through prime ministers quicker than a rapper goes through strippers on tour. But apparently America can do it better.
Reporter: Will you support Donald Trump?
Him: “Oh Hell no”😂💀

I’ve spent all of 2016 laughing at Americans with the Donald Trump situation, and now look at us tonight… embarrassing.

a strong independent woman would be great for our country, but Hilary Clinton is NOT that and I have no respect for people that praise her

And just when you thought you couldn’t get enough of the Snapchat filters… Well Facebook has made the #Whatstrending yet again with another video additive. The social media platform is said to be introducing filter to its Facebook live feature, only adding to talk of Facebook becoming all video within the next five years.
Facebook made the announcement at the recent 2016 VidCon conference in Anaheim. Facebook have purchased facial recognition company, MSQRD, which basically does the exact same thing as Snapchat, except you do it on Facebook Live. Turns out it’s not that different to what we can already access but it’ll be interesting to see if this is what Facebook needs to get the edge in the competitive social media market.
Fall Out Boy were asked to be behind the new Ghostbusters theme song and the internet is a little bit confused about how they should take this one. And you know what? I don’t blame them. I mean Fall Out Boy were so 10 years ago anyway, right?
Fall Out Boy was the best option for the new Ghostbusters theme song? Who else was in the running, Papa Roach and Nickelback?

I have to admit in like 2007 I was pretty obsessed with the band and I’m pretty sure Pete Wentz looked me in the eye at their Sydney concert and it was love but neither of us could take it anywhere because he was famous… and there was that issue of Ashley Simpson. But back to the point I don’t think they were the best pick for this particular job. The collaboration featuring Miss Elliot isn’t exactly music to my ears.
Check it out for yourself.
And because I have to end with a laugh (I just couldn’t live with myself if I left you on such a downer) here’s a reminder to the idiots, I mean politicians, who post pics on social media of them holding a sign with a slogan… People of the internet take their photoshopping very seriously…
