SlamXWeekly: All The Best Things That Happened On The Internet This Week
The writers and editors at SlamXHype spend their whole lives on the Internet — yes, it’s sad– scouring the vast reaches and recesses of it’s digital landscape to find the coolest shit around. They’re black belts at it.
Some of that stuff finds it’s way onto SlamXHype’s website, others come straight here as SlamXWeekly, a curated set of links to the best and most awesome stuff that the interwebs has to offer.
SlamXWeekly hits every Friday, so check out the round up below then, then check back next week for more.
We’re only half a week into 2014 and Miley Cyrus is already gunning for YouTube records: her video “Adore You” plays on all the Internet’s heartstrings. It’s sexually charged (she’s basically wearing see-through underwear and touching herself). It’s controversial (did we mention touching herself?). And it’s music (the Internet loves noises). So accordingly, Miley’s climbed to the top of Billboard’s Social 50 Chart, and though she didn’t break Vevo’s 24-hour view record — which she actually already holds for “Wrecking Ball” — “Adore You” already has 34 million views. Watch it here.
Also, the world almost fell apart when Miley talked sh*t about Beyoncé and tweens thought they were going to have to choose between their two sexed up pop idols. But it turned out to be fake, so that was too bad because tweens fighting is hilarious.
