Breaking news: Rooney Mara wore a denim shirt and leather motorcycle jacket to walk her dog in Beverly Hills. It’s important to note that Rooney cannot in fact dress herself. It seems that she has a stylist by the name of Ryan Hastings to pick out these ensembles for her. Her dog must be grateful that his master dresses so stylishly to take him out for a poo.

The UK Votes to Leave the European Union / The Kardashians have a Pillow Fight

A referendum allowing UK citizens to vote on whether or not to leave the EU was held on Thursday, June 23, 2016. The “leave” side won by 52 to 48. Scotland and Northern Ireland both had higher showings from the ‘stay’ side, but both countries are part of the UK so the overall vote affects them. The European Union is an economic and political partnership with 28 countries taking part. It allows members to use a common currency (the Euro) and citizens to move through the member countries easily. The EU has its own parliament and its rules affect all members. The UK now has two years to negotiate its withdrawal. You can learn more about Brexit by reading “The UK’s EU referendum: All you need to know” on the BBC here

kardashians pillow fight

Two matching Kardashians smile as they hit each other with soft fluffy pillows. Photo credit – well, it’s off a Khloe’s instagram, but she’s in the photo, so it’s actually a big mystery who took it.

Khloe and Kourtney had a pillow fight and it was so awesome, they posted photos on Instagram! They both wore the same pajamas, maybe because they wanted to show solidarity or that they’re in the same family. Even though they’re fighting, you can tell they actually like each other by their happy smiles. You can bet that the 48% of UK citizens who actually like being part of an economic and political union are not smiling. As usual, if you want to know more about these two idiots, google it yourself.

Muqaddas Bibi, 22, was murdered by her family on Tuesday in Buttaranwali village because she had married for love instead of accepting a marriage arranged by her family. Bibi was seven months pregnant with her second child at the time of her murder. Last week, a sixteen-year-old girl who married for love was killed by her family and a young married couple in Lahore were killed by their families. Some Pakistanis believe that it is the family’s responsibility to choose whom their children marry, and that a child marrying for love dishonors the family. Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has vowed to stop these honor killings, but Pakistan is still waiting for legislation. To learn more about honor killings in Pakistan, click here

Venezuela is in the midst of a financial crisis that has been getting worse for years. According to the official exchange rate, it costs $150 to buy a dozen eggs at a street market. There are two supermarket chains with the prices regulated so people can afford to buy food, but it takes all day to do your shopping because the line-ups are so long. To understand more about the inflation and rising costs in Venezuela, read this article in the LA Times.

KANYE West

Somebody broke into Kanye West’s studio and stole some stuff worth $20,000. Don’t panic, though – it was just some computers, and they have heavy security so the robbers won’t be able to hack Kanye’s Netflix account and rack up a big bill, and plus Kanye already replaced all the shit he lost because Kanye is so loaded, he would have no problem paying current Venezuelan prices for eggs.

The death toll from Ecuador’s massive earthquake last week has risen to 654 people. The quake registered 7.8 magnitude and left at least 16,600 people injured. Ecuador’s president Rafael Correa, who cut short a trip and returned home immediately after the quake, estimates the country-wide damage at $2 to 3 billion. Close to 7,000 buildings were destroyed and about 25,000 people are currently living in shelters. For the latest updates on the quake, visit CBC News

Today’s utterly unfascinating bottom story is that Kylee Jenner wore a Louis Vuitton swim suit the other day! Not only that, but she ate an Egg McMuffin and changed her hair style! That’s right, non-news fans, Kylee is still doing absolutely nothing of interest or value, but for whatever reason, celebrity news outlets insist on sharing the dull monotony of her life with you anyway. If you give any fucks about what Kylee Jenner is eating or wearing, stalk her instagram because I’m not going to bother adding links here. Gullible Lives Matter is a serious news site.

Turkey is still reeling from two separate car bomb explosions recently in its capital, Ankara.

Turkey is being targeted because they are fighting against ISIS as well as other terrorist groups.

In non-news today, the internet is not abuzz with Kylie Jenner’s latest insight to the state of her purple hair:

According to JustJared, Kylie brilliantly has these words to share with her hair fans: “You’re just such an a****** because, like, the top of my hair is, like, kind of destroyed from my bleach, so I’m really, like, self-conscious about it.”

From the look of intense concentration on Kylie’s face, we can assume that she is reading about important world events. Or maybe her make-up solidified, freezing her face in that position.

If you give any fucks about Kylie Jenner’s hair, you can Google it because I don’t have a link for you, and I want you to know that you really suck.

Thousands of Refugees Wait in Muddy Camps / The Duke of Cambridge Goes Skiing

IDOMENI, GREECE – MARCH 6: Refugees wash a new born baby as they stay in tents that they set up in the Idomeni town in Greece, near the Macedonian border on March 6, 2016. (Photo by Iker Pastor/Anadolu Agency/Getty Images)

The refugee camp in Idomeni, on the border of Greece and Macedonia, is filled with families living in squalor as they wait for Macedonia to reopen its borders.

Thousands of people left everything behind and escaped the dangers of war on their front steps, hoping to build better lives for themselves and their children in Macedonia, which has subsequently tightened its border restrictions.

This three-or-four-day-old newborn baby who was likely born in the tent has nothing, not even warm water to bathe in.

With weather conditions making the camp increasingly colder and muddier, Greek authorities are trying to persuade people to leave and move further into Europe.

Click here to see more photos of life in the Idomeni camp on Huffington Post.

Prince William and his wife Kate took their children skiing in the French Alps.

Since their two infants have the best, warmest outer wear money can buy and a nice warm fire to cozy up to in the ski lodge, they had fun getting a little cold and wet, unlike the newborn baby living in a tent who has to be cleaned by cold water from a bottle over the muddy ground in Idomeni.

If you want to see more pictures of these rich assoles playing in the snow, you’ll have to find them yourself, because this is not news and I’m not going to link you to it.
