#WhatsTrending on July 8 – Ryan against Hiddleswift?

It’s been a big week, from Ryan Reynolds’ terrible life choices to the ex who beat Taylor Swift to writing a break-up song.

And of course there’s everything you need to know about THAT Margot Robbie story for Vanity Fair.


Ryan Reynolds has gone viral on Twitter this week. The Deadpool actor attended Taylor Swift’s exclusive 4th of July party with his wife, Blake Lively, who is pregnant with their second child. However it became apparent that he wasn’t a willing participant of the Hiddleswift love story when Taylor’s long-time best friend Brittany posted this picture on Instagram.

Blake Lively is a firm standing member of Taylor Swift’s “girl-squad” so, like any supportive husband, he had to be there. But we’re trying to decipher whether the actor is contemplating his life choices or genuinely paging for help through worldwide awareness… aka social media.

I hope you’re okay, Ryan. The world of Twitter is sending help for you.


So, in light of Facebook upping their game, has Snapchat followed suit?

On July 6 Snapchat released a new feature called Memories. What’s better about this new feature is that it allows you to save a selection of snaps in a secure, safe folder on the app. And when I say secure I mean… secure. The only way to access the photos in the album is with a pass code and if you forget said pass code… well, that sucks because not even Snapchat can help you out. The new feature allows you to reset the pass code, however, in doing so you will lose all of the previous content.

What better way to make a comeback than go back to their roots. Because let’s face it, Snapchat was created so we all had a safe means of sending all things naughty and nice.


While Margot Robbie is releasing videos on Australian slang and admiring her cover on Vanity Fair the rest of the world is letting loose about THAT cover story.

And if you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t heard anything about it you obviously haven’t been on social media because Twitter is going mental over it.

The cover story called “Welcome to the Summer of Margot Robbie” written by Rich Cohen is kind of a beautifully written love story by an obsessive admirer.

“America is so far gone, we have to go to Australia to find a girl next door. In case you’ve missed it, her name is Margot Robbie. She is 26 and beautiful, not in that otherworldly, catwalk way but in a minor knock-around key, a blue mood, a slow dance. She is blonde but dark at the roots. She is tall but only with the help of certain shoes. She can be sexy and composed even while naked but only in character,” he wrote.

As an Australian, it’s also nice to know what Cohen really thinks of us: “As I said, she is from Australia. To understand her, you should think about what that means. Australia is America 50 years ago, sunny and slow, a throwback, which is why you go there for throwback people.” Wait, what?

I have to admit, from a dude’s perspective, the whole article is totally hot and the male readership will be through the roof. But a cover story in Vanity Fair is generally associated with the Hollywood elite and is an unusual outlet for a crushing writer. But can we blame him? She’s gorgeous and let’s not forget that this is a piece on a girl who has done some of the most explicit sex scenes in a modern box office hit.

As much as most of the world may not be making sense of it… It does kinda seem like the highlight of his summer.


In other Hiddleswift news it looks like Taylor Swift’s ex, Calvin Harris, has beat her to writing a break up song! With all her gallivanting around the world with her new beau, Tom Hiddleston, she mustn’t have had the time to sit down and cry over the end of her 18-month relationship with Harris.

No surprise in the new song Ole, written by Harris and recorded by John Newman, that he totally implies she cheated on him. And we can’t argue with his logic, considering it was only two weeks after the announced split that she was off canoodling with Hiddleston.

As Taylor touched down in Australia today to support Tom on set for Thor 3, the song became available on Spotify. Make sure you check it out for yourself!

Have a great weekend guys! Don’t forget to snap, post and share all your adventures! – Kezia Hopperus Buma
