So much is going on in our world right now and we just need to heal and come back to love.
Usually I'm not this into my feelings on the blog, but my day job is in news and covering the tragedy in Las Vegas last week and the devastating fires in the Bay Area today, I feel this is the musical hug we all need.

Mass Shooting at Las Vegas Country Music Festival is Deadliest in American History

theheavy.com

Waking up to the news in Las Vegas broke my heart.
You all know news is my day job, and working the story and already knowing how to cover stories like this hurt my heart because this is becoming so common.
I shouldn't know how to cover a story like this.
The shooting in Vegas struck a chord more than before because I was just there. Vegas has always been a place I felt safe.
Also, to take into account that this occurred at a music festival, as a concert and festival attendee this hurt even more.
Is nowhere safe?

The shooting killed about 58 people and injured 515.
 Kids were there, on their parents' shoulders.
These people just wanted to see their favorite artists perform at the Route 91 Harvest festival. They were all there for one thing. music.
This all occurred while country star Jason Aldean performed.
Since then celebrities expressed their sorrow and pain following this ordeal.

Prayers for all those affected, but we all know now that prayers aren't enough. We say this too often now.

Throwback Monday

                                   I was going to refrain from posting a throwback this week due to the tragedy in Las Vegas. However, due to the recent passing of Tom Petty, I felt this song was very appropriate for the mood of today and what we all need as human beings during this time.

Difficulty Keeping up with the Kardashians: Khloe Pregnancy Rumors

http://www.thisisinsider.com

Like many of you, I too, am having difficultly Keeping Up with the Kardashians. 
Just last week, numerous reports were stating the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner family, Kylie, is pregnant with a baby girl. The rumors are swirling the baby-daddy is rapper-beau, Travis Scott.
Then, this past Wednesday, E! and People are reporting big sis, Khloe is expecting a child now with Cleveland Cavs star, Tristan Thompson.
These two pregnancy rumors are out there along with reports that Kim and Kanye's surrogate is pregnant.
If these are all true, that means THREE members of this family are expecting children in 2018.
The family has kept mum on the subject, however there have been reports that Caitlyn is confirming the Kylie baby news, but has since denied this saying it wasn't her.
The only family member saying/not saying something is Kim who tweeted these elusive messages:






I guess we'll have to all wait until the season premier of Keeping Up with the Kardashians to finally find out what the hell is going on! 

Hugh Hefner Dies at 91

http://schmoesknow.com

It's definitely an end of an era. 
Playboy magazine founder, satin-pajama-enthusiast and  sexual revolution icon, Hugh Hefner, has died at the age of 91 years old .
The publication released a statement saying Hefner died at his home, the Playboy Mansion, surrounded by family and friends.
Playboy's first issue was published in 1953 when Hef was just 27 years old. The first issue of Playboy was financed with $600 of his own money and several thousand more in borrowed funds, including $1,000 from his mother. But his biggest asset was a nude calendar photograph of Marilyn Monroe. He had bought the rights for $500. That photo ended up on the cover of the first issue and launched the brand we all know, and whom many just "read for the articles".

Hefner leaves behind four children and wife, Crystal Harris.
Hefner will be buried  at the Westwood Village Memorial Park, where he bought the mausoleum drawer next to Monroe. 

Hefner's stature in pop-culture was huge and launched the careers of Pamela Anderson, Jenny McCarthy, Carmen Electra, and Girls Next Door Bridget Marquardt, Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett and Holly Madison.
Some of these women, and celebrities featured in Playboy took to social media to express their condolences to the legend. 





Goodbye #Hef Mr Hefner I have so many thoughts, I have no brain n right now to edit I am me because of you You taught me everything important about freedom and respect. Outside of my family You were the most important person in my life. You gave me my life... People tell me all the time That I was your favorite... I'm in such deep shock. But you were old, your back hurt you so much. Last time I saw you You were using a walker. You didn't want me to see. You couldn't hear. You had a piece of paper in your pocket you showed me - with my name Pamela with a heart around it. Now, I'm falling apart. This feeling is so crazy. It's raining in Paris now. I'm by the window. Everything anyone loves about me is because you understood me. Accepted me and encouraged me to be myself. Love like no one else. Live recklessly With unfiltered abandon. You said the magazine was about a girl like me. That I embody the spirit you fantasized about. I was the one. You said. I can hear you say - Be brave. There are no rules. Live your life I'm proud of you. There are no mistakes. And with men - Enjoy ... (Your wonderful laugh) You have the world by the tail You are a good girl And you are so loved - You are not crazy. You are wild and free Stay strong, Stay vulnerable. ... "It's movie time" You loved my boys ... You were always, always there for us. With your love Your crazy wisdom. I will miss your everything. Thank you for making the world a better place. A freeer and sexier place. You were a gentleman charming, elegant, chivalrous And so much fun. Goodbye Hef ... Your Pamela πŸ’‹
