Camila Cabello's New "Havana" MV is #1 Video Trending on YouTube

Singer Camila Cabello dropped her visuals for her single "Havana," featuring Young Thug on October 24, and within hours, it became the number one trending video on YouTube, raking in millions of views. There's comedy and there's romance, but the music video isn't your average mv. It plays more like a mini movie, with Cabello the star of each scene.  In fact, that's how the 20-year-old former member of Fifth Harmony teased the visual just days before the big drop with a number of movie-style teaser trailers. The actual music video starts with Cabello in a telenovela, and then expands to show she's the woman watching the drama, who then interacts with her grandmother (played by LeJuan James) and her sister (played by LeLe Pons). She then goes to the theater, where she's the star of that film, hitting the dance floor with hot men at a club. Cabello, originally from Cuba, really does a great job acting out each of her roles in her mini movie, di

Issa Rae is Aminé's Baby Mama in New Video Dedicated to Spice Girls with Cameo from Mel B

Portland rapper, Aminé, just dropped his new music video (on October 10, 2017) and it's as crazy as ever, featuring two big names from the entertainment industry, actress Issa Rae (Insecure) and Mel B from the Spice Girls. The mv is the official video for the song "Spice Girl," a track from his debut album, Good For You.  It starts with Aminé sitting on a coach with a naked woman on his lap, but the woman has his face. It then moves to police chasing after Aminé, who is now on a bike. Next is a bathroom scene, and his foot rapping. We eventually see the artist getting a hilarious jailhouse visit from Issa Rae.  Mel B, a.k.a. Scary Spice, shows up towards the end throwing profanity his way. Throughout the video we see hidden and not so hidden messages about the new album and his website . The song itself is about the type of woman he wants, and he wants a Spice Girl.

Instead of Columbus Day - Celebrating Native American Culture

On Monday, October 9th, 2017, many cities across the U.S. celebrated Indigenous Peoples' Day instead of Columbus Day. Columbus Day traditionally honors Christopher Columbus' arrival in the Americas in 1492.  The day became a federal holiday in the United States in 1937. But Christopher Columbus' arrival also included European diseases and the enslavement of Native Americans and later the African Slave trade. Indigenous Peoples' Day, honors the struggle, culture, history and traditions of Indigenous peoples, not only from the United States, but also from around the world.

In 1992, Berkeley, Calif., declared Oct. 12 as "Day of Solidarity with Indigenous People" and promoted programs in schools and museums on Native American culture.  In 2014, a few cities such as Seattle and Minneapol
