Rap just got more political than ever before. The First Lady, Michelle Obama, continues her mission to encourage young people to stay in higher education. Joined by Saturday Night Live's Jay Pharoah, Michelle - the classiest hype woman in history - raps: 'If you wanna fly jets you should go to college!' Stay in school, kids. Word. 

 

2. Baby Beyonce Sings A Show Tune

MOST POPULAR

We always had a suspicion that Queen Bey has been hitting those high notes since day dot. Apparently we were right and this video of a seven-year-old Beyonce singing 'Home' from the hit musical, The Wiz, proves it. Baby Bey absolutely kills it.

 

3. Olivier Rousteing Speaks To Newsnight

Creative Director of Balmain, Olivier Rousteing, appeared on BBC's Newsnight. The fashion mogul spoke frankly and emotionally about the recent attacks in Paris and about his own 'tough life', discussing his adoptive parents and growing up in an orphanage, adding: 'Fashion always helped me to define who I am and who I want to be.'

Bella Hadid looked incredible bathed in red lights in The Weeknd's new music video for 'In The Night'. The rapper's typically dark lyrics tell the story of a young city slicker seductress who he's crushing hard on. Now that Bella and The Weeknd have confirmed their romance, we can't help but wonder whether the song is autobiographical.

 

6. Dads Read Their Daughter's Texts To Their Boyfriends

Imagine your dad reading the texts you've sent to your boyfriend. Cringing yet? Well, now watch this video in which real life American teenage girls unlock their phones and hand them over to their fathers, no holds barred. Particularly enjoy the moment when one father reads: 'It's been a while since I *eggplant emoji* with a real dude'... Help. 
 

7. Adele's 'Hello' Gets A Motherhood Makeover

Hello from the mother side. This has to be the cleverest Adele parody yet. Emily Mills - genius, singer, mother and our spirit animal - has reimagined Adele's epic ballad to vent about the stresses of motherhood and it's hilarious. We approve of the sepia tones too; they hide all manner of kiddie stains.
