#SocialGathering: Women's March Organizers Join "A Day Without a Woman" Strike Via Instagram; Britney Spears Puts on a Runway Show
And was this George Bush's best week ever?
Can't keep up with what's been going on in the social media world? Fret not. Here, a gathering of what the stars have been up to this week on social media.
A Day Without Women Is Coming
On March 8, the world will know what “A Day Without a Woman” will be like. In an open letter to American women published by The Guardian, representatives from women’s groups worldwide invited U.S. women to join their strike against “male violence and in defense of reproductive rights.”
U.S. Women's March organizers want to “highlight the economic power and significance that women have in the U.S. and global economies, while calling attention to the economic injustices women and gender-non-conforming people continue to face.” Officially joining the strike on social media, organizers invite everyone to participate in three ways: take the day off of work (if they can), wear red in solidarity and/or refrain from shopping in stores that aren’t independent and female-owned.
Britney Spears' Instagram Fashion Show
In the spirit of fashion month, Britney Spears put on a fashion show, full of slinky body-con looks, in her Las Vegas hotel room. Totally normal — this is how every great Las Vegas bachelorette party begins.
George Bush’s Best Week Ever?
George W. Bush has taken up oil painting as a hobby since he’s left office, and this week his book Portraits of Courage: A Commander in Chief's Tribute to America's Warriors hit shelves. The book features portraits of servicemen and women that were injured during Bush's War on Terror. While out promoting the book, Bush revealed how close he and Michelle Obama are, joked about his Inauguration Day mishap with a poncho and even made some pointed comments toward Trump — smiling the whole time.
Taylor Swift's Lucky Number
It’s no secret that Taylor Swift is obsessed with the number 13. Her birthday is on December 13, 1989, she writes it on her hand when she performs, and, as BuzzFeed discovered, she posts screenshots of her favorite songs at the 0:13 mark on Instagram. Hopefully Swift isn’t too bummed out that she was ousted by Ariana Grande as the second-most-followed person on Instagram — since you can't make 13 without a 3.
