The Buzz List

1. 1D & the Babygate: Ever since Louis Tomlinson, member of One Direction, announced that he would be having a child with Briana Jungwirth, Directioners* everywhere have been conspiring about whether or not Freddie, Tomlinson’s baby, even exists. Why the suspicion you ask; let me explain.

“The Babygate,” as it has been named, is based on the theory that Tomlinson, and 1D BABE, Harry Styles, have and are hiding a romantic relationship (AS IF). Anyways, the Babygate is seen as part of the plot to distract people from learning about Larry**. So what evidence do they have?

To make a loooooong conspiracy short, a variety of photos and suspicious social media accounts have spurred this conspiracy. Firstly, the babymama, Jungwirth, created her Twitter account only two days before being photographed with Tomlinson for the first time. Coincidence? I think not. Also, one of Tomlinson’s photos with his alleged baby, is thought to be photo-shopped as one of Tomlinson’s beautiful chest tatts is missing from the picture. Is there even a real baby in the picture?

There is A LOT more evidence against Freddie’s existence- even his birth certificate validity has been called into question. Believe what you will, and read more about the Babygate online (Seriously, this is required reading).

2. #BlacRob: Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna are engaged. It’s not a joke, and my dreams of becoming a Kardashian (Kat-dashian (I know, cute)) are officially over. The couple announced their engagement via Instagram last Tuesday, April 5. I’ve got to admit, they look pretty adorable, and they’re obviously in love/lust (seriously, it’s only been three months). Rob’s half-sister Kylie Jenner has kept rather silent on the engagement. Jenner’s current boyfriend Tyga fathered a child with Chyna, so clearly Kylie isn’t all for #BlacRob.

Would you want your ex-boyfriend’s babymama to become your half-sister-in-law? Of course not. Others are sure that Kylie is just jealous because she and Tyga are not engaged yet, but Rob and Blac are in their late twenties. Kylie is 18; there is no need for her to rush. #TeamKylie #FreeRob

3. American Idol Is FINALLY Over: This is a celebratory point in the Buzz List. After 15 seasons, (five or six or seven of them long, grueling seasons ) American Idol has officially, ended. The 15th winner is Trent Harmon (Mississippi). First runner up was La’Porsha Renae (Mississippi). TBH, you weren’t watching it anyways (who was), but at least now you know.

4. That’s So Kat; It’s the Future I Can See: The 2016 Billboard Music Awards will air on May 22 on ABC at 8 p.m. The nominations have just been released, and rather than give you a boring list of the nominees, I thought I would share a few of my predictions.

Top Selling Song: Adele, “Hello.”

Adele has had a HUGE comeback with her album 25. “Hello” is STILL being played despite the fact that it was released in October 2015. How do I really know it will win Top Selling Song– my dad bought it. Our generation and our parents generation are losing their minds over “Hello,” and folks, you just can’t beat that. 😉

Top Soundtrack: Pitch Perfect 2.

Love it or hate it, it’s going to win. The sequel may not have lived up to the first movie, but this album has Snoop Dog singing “Winter Wonderland / Here Comes Santa Claus” with Anna Kendrick. LeGeNdArY.

Top Artist, Top Billboard 200 Album (Purpose), Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Male Artist, Top Radio Songs Artist, Top Social Media Artist, Top Song Sales Artist, Top Streaming Songs Artist and Top Streaming Song (Audio) (“Sorry” AND “What Do You Mean”): Justin Bieber

I mean, obviously. My future husband, Justin, deserves all of the awards. I don’t think anyone would question that.
