Crunchwraps? Mexican Pizzas? Baja Blast?!

There are lots of reasons to love Taco Bell but would you use $100,000 to secure a lifetime supply? Georgia Tech freshman, Rishab Jain would. On a recent college edition episode of Jeopardy, Jain told host Alex Trebek that he would spend the $100,000 grand prize on a lifetime supply of Taco Bell.

Hey @tacobell, would 100,000 #TripleMeltBurritos be enough to last Rishab a lifetime? pic.twitter.com/aYu0PS4yln — Jeopardy! (@Jeopardy) April 18, 2018

Now unfortunately Rishab did not take home the grand prize and get his lifetime supple, but Taco Bell still decided to hook it up for me. According to People.com,  Taco Bell reps caught wind of the episode and decided to send him a $500 gift card. JEAAALOOUS.

College can feel like a lifetime. We'll help you get through it, Rishab. pic.twitter.com/CRSorPyO0w — Taco Bell (@tacobell) April 20, 2018

As Kygo closed out his main stage set at Coachella Friday, he stopped and spoke to the crowd, “Coachella, I think most of you guys have heard, but today is a very sad day for music…”

Screens behind the DJ then lit up with pictures of Avicii and Kygo performed his song ‘Without You’ as a tribute to a musician gone too soon and too young.

Avicii passed away Friday in the Oman capital of Muscat. We do not yet know the cause of death.

Starbucks debuts new ‘cold foam’

Recent bad publicity hasn’t stopped Starbucks from thinking of new concoctions. As of yesterday, that new creation is ‘cold foam’. The cold foam is similar to steamed milk but thicker so that it can float across a cold beverage.

The real excitement about this lands on Harry Potter fans because it is now even easier for them to create their own version of the popular ‘butterbeer’ which can normally only be found at Universal Orlando Resort.

Heinz will soon debut ‘Mayochup’ in America

Last week Heinz teased all of us when they tweeted out a poll asking if Americans wanted the ketchup/mayo combo ‘Mayochup’ available in stores. Well, it turns out that was no publicity stunt and after 500,000 votes were reached the classic combo will soon be available on store shelves!

Think of all those exhausting years you spent creating the combo yourself??? Those days are no more.

We heard you saucy Americans and we’re bringing you our version of the delicious duo you’ve been eating for years. Are you Team Mayochup or should we call it something else?

The New Festival Hair Trend is Glitter In Your Part

(PHOTO: @frunkkawaii/Instagram)

Okay ladies let’s be real. Trendy or not this is probably the dumbest hair fashion since over-sized scrunchies. I mean you do you realize you’re going to spend the next year getting that out right?!

And don’t we spend our whole lives trying to hide or avoid dandruff?! NOW WE ACTUALLY ARE BEGGING FOR GLITTERY DANDRUFF?!

It’s official. Coachella is not about epic artist lineups and Destiny’s Child reunions. It’s about freaking dumb fashion trends and their Instagram likes.

Ugh. Not even Head and Shoulders can fix that.

Here’s a tutorial if you feel like your life is incomplete without this look. Or you want to rock it at 97XBBQ.

A few prize Twitter reactions…

crowds at coachella clearly expended all their energy doing their hair and glitter that they had none left for the insane sets they didn’t deserve to see — ruby (@rubyobri) April 16, 2018 To the Coachella girls dousing their hair in glitter …. I’m so sorry for how long that is gunna last in your hair — megs ❃ (@megeliiizabeth) April 15, 2018 We get it You’re at Coachella and you saw the Walmart yodel boy We don’t have FOMO because I’m not trying to pick glitter out of my hair in a year So be quiet and go sit down somewhere in the desert — who? (@amberhancockbur) April 14, 2018 Coachella is just a festival with sub par musicians, of which half of the millennials that attend, have no clue who they are. But what’s more fun then getting to throw on their kimonos, and put glitter in their hair to take selfies in the desert? Let’s spend 300$ on that. — Peyton Carro (@PeytonCurran) April 16, 2018
