If You Loved

Kim and Kayne or Jay-Z and Beyonce read on!

I mentioned in a post last week about my one-woman crusade against celebrity magazines. I won’t buy them, won’t read them. I don’t judge, I just don’t have time in my life for what they have to offer.

That’s why I had to LOL (truly honestly laugh out loud) when I saw these series of posts on PolicyMic (recently rebranded to .Mic). The first is called, If You Loved Kim and Kanye’s Weekend Wedding, You Should See These Photos and the second is If You Loved the Jay-Z and Solange Fight, You Should See These Photos.

What’s amazing about these? They play into our culture’s incessant need for celebrity news with good old fashioned link bait but (and here’s the amazing part) what is actually inside the posts is world news.

Yup you heard right. The images and corresponding stories are about what is happening in foreign policy, with Veterans, in politics, Turkey, Ukraine, Nigeria and it’s GENIUS.

Big kudos to .Mic. I hope you do more of these. Bloody brilliant.
