Spotify’s Wrapped Is Back
Spotify’s 2020 Wrapped is back and just in time to save us from what’s been the longest and most challenging year yet. Users can access their 2020 listening round-up through Spotify’s mobile app. They can also participate in quizzes, find out their top artists and podcasts, and the decade of music they listened to most. And despite having listened to 500 million new artists this year, your top song will probably be some pop song TikTok made famous this year.
TikTok Mansions Going Public on the Stock Market
A company attempting to capitalize on TikTok mansions has gone public on the stock market. TikTok mansions have become quite popular in LA, with many management groups renting out houses for TikTok creators and groups to live and collaborate under the same roof. Popular TikTok houses include the Hype House and Sway House.
The influencers don’t pay rent but rather the companies renting out the homes for the creators receive a percentage of the creators’ earnings – hence the management group. But to make this a more sustainable business model the companies decided to go public. Although currently listed as pink sheet penny stocks, some have seen a surge since COVID-19. To seasoned investors, this might seem like a volatile solution. Still, to the many on social media, this might be a genius idea considering the short life expectancy of the houses.
Euphoria Actor’s Horrifying Audition Goes Viral

Just give me the job, and we’ll be fine.” Gage recorded the audition and later posted it to Twitter and Instagram with the caption, “PSA if you're a sh*t talking director make sure to mute your sh*t on zoom meetings.”
The clip has gone viral and received praise from creative groups like Comments By Celebs and other notable actors like Leslie Jordan. Shapeero has since issued an apology to Gage. But it’s not like Gage needed it after the entertainment community at large came to his defense.
