“I could see in their eyes as they were listening to it on their headphones that it reminded them of something or someone…That’s what I wanted to remember, how it was I felt at the beginning of the relationship that inspired that record….”

2. Wine infused coffee is now a real thing
The Molinari Private Reserve, a Nappa Valley café, has created a wine infused coffee by simply brewing coffee with wine.
However, chances are this process won’t get you drunk, as the wine is infused for flavor more than anything else.
According to the cafe’s website, the wine infused coffee is better when left sitting for a bit, or if refrigerated can make a great iced coffee.
3.Emma Stone talked about her real name, Emily Scott
Emma Stone was told by SAG at the age of 16 that she would need to pick a new name if she wanted to be an actress.
She opened up about the process of picking a new name saying:
“So to ask a 16-year-old to pick a new name is really an interesting process, because I was like, ‘I’m going to be Riley. My name is going to be Riley Stone.’
“And so my name was Riley Stone for about six months and I did a guest spot on Malcolm In The Middle and one day they were like, ‘Riley, Riley,’ and I had no idea who they were talking to and they were like, ‘Hey, hey come on we need you on set.’ And I was like, ‘Oh I’m not Riley, I can’t be Riley.'”
“I had the option of Emily J. Stone and it’s kind of like Michael J. Fox, and I love Michael J. Fox, but I don’t think I could pull off the J,”
“So then I changed it to Emma because you know it’s closer to Emily, but most people call me ‘M,’ that know me well.”
4. A guy ended up in jail after joking that he was a serial killer while on a Tinder Date
A guy on Reddit explained that he had been on a Tinder date that was going well, and that his date even invited him to hang out with some of her friends and grab food. He continued explaining, writing:
So after the food arrives the conversation turns a little more towards how we met (pay close attention and you will spot my mistake). She states she’s glad I’m normal and not some sort of serial killer.
Now I could have just laughed… I could have but I was funny remember? I replied with “Oh thanks for thinking I’m normal! But I actually am a serial killer, bodies for days buried out at the farm.”
She laughed, I laughed, I thought I did great at making it sound sarcastic.
She excuses herself to the bathroom to do whatever girls do in bathrooms on dates. It was taking a questionably long time for her to return and I was slightly worried she bailed and stuck me with the bill, my luck right? Wrong.
So unbelievably wrong, my luck was worse as police officers suddenly appear out of nowhere and tell me to keep both of my hands visible on the table.
I’m in the car and the police are outside talking to my date for a few minutes when they get into the car with me and ask me if I told my date I was a serial killer, areyoufuckingkiddingme…
I tell them yes but I was joking.
So that derailed my plans, I spent the next 5-6 hours explaining myself over and over and over that I was kidding.
I guess eventually they either believed me or got tired of hearing me speak much to my lawyers disapproval (to me speaking) and let me go and reminded me that my jokes suck.
5. Nike launched its first plus sized line
A spokesperson for Nike talked about the new clothing line, saying:
“Nike recognizes that women are stronger, bolder and more outspoken than ever….In today’s world, sport is no longer something that she does, it’s who she is. The days where we have to add ‘female’ before ‘athlete’ are over. She is an athlete, period. And having helped fuel this cultural shift, we celebrate these athletes’ diversity, from ethnicity to body shape.”
Helen Boucher, vice president of women’s training apparel, also talked about the clothing line, explaining that Nike isn’t just making clothes that are the same design in larger sizes, as that wouldn’t work for everyone.
6. Abercrombie & Fitch has announced that it will be closing 60 stores in 2017
The brand’s CEO, Fran Horowitz spoke about the company saying:
“Hollister, our largest brand, achieved positive comp sales and the Abercrombie brand renewal continues, although it is a work in progress…While overall results did not meet expectations, 2016 was a year of significant progress on each of our strategic priorities.”

7. A Russian Lawmaker is pushing to ban Disney’s new live action “Beauty and the Beast” because of what they are calling gay propaganda
The Russian lawmaker called the movie: “a blatant, shameless propaganda of sin and perverted sexual relationships.”
A law in Russia that prohibits the spreading of “gay propaganda” currently bans public discussion of gay rights anywhere children might hear it.
The moment being called gay is a quick moment at the end of the film where the characters are dancing in a circle and changing partners,and leads to the character LeFou finding himself paired with another man. After they freeze surprised, the audience laughs and the camera cuts away.
In Alabama a Drive-In movie theater also announced that they would not be showing the movie, saying on their Facebook page in a post that has since been deleted:
“It is with great sorrow that I have to tell our customers that we will not be showing ‘Beauty and the Beast,'”
“We will not compromise on what the Bible teaches…We will continue to show family-oriented films so you can feel free to come watch wholesome movies without worrying about sex, nudity, homosexuality and foul language.”
