Happy Friday Bay Area!
Welcome to the weekend. Before you get to your lounging, take a look at some of the week’s biggest stories.
A McDonald’s manager in the UK set the Internet ablaze this week after revealing that the chain has a “secret menu”…kinda. There are items that are not so much secret but have cheeky names, and the crazy burgers are easy to order, as long as you remember exactly what’s on them.
Nicki tweets. Taylor reacted. Katy threw some shade. There was bad blood. It was not pretty.
Caitlyn Jenner’s new show on E! is the talk of the Internet town and in the first episode, Jenner reveals a touching detail behind her transition not previously reported in her Vanity Fair cover feature: the real origin behind her name.
In horrible news, a gunman opened fire at a screening of Trainwreck in Louisiana, killing two and injuring more. Amy Schumer, the star of the film playing at the time, has issued a response. Our prayers go out to those affected.
Maroon 5 managed to piss off a whole foreign government this week after a band member tweeted out a Happy Birthday message to the Dalai Lama. Two shows scheduled for the country have since been canceled.
