Celebrities are continuing to tweet their reactions to the Paris tragedy, which so far, has left over 100 dead.
The attacks started earlier tonight (November 13) with a a shooting at a restaurant, an explosion at the Stade de France, and around 100 hostages being held at a theater. President Hollande declared a state of emergency and closed the countries borders.
Heffron Drive, who was supposed to debut a new video tonight for their new single, have postponed it and many other celebs have reacted to the news.
“I have been in the studio all day w/Dustin making the video, hadnt turned on the news til this moment. #Paris my heart is bleeding for you,” Kendall Schmidtwrote. “Out of respect for the tragedy in #Paris we will NOT post the video tonight. It wouldn’t be right, I hope you understand!”
People are sort of freaking out over an announcement that was just made on Twitter…the social media site will be instituting “likes” instead of “favorites” with a heart icon to replace the star.
The news was announced via the Twitter blog, and fans immediately began commenting. “We are changing our star icon for favorites to a heart and we’ll be calling them likes. We want to make Twitter easier and more rewarding to use, and we know that at times the star could be confusing, especially to newcomers. You might like a lot of things, but not everything can be your favorite,” the Twitter blog announced.
“The heart, in contrast, is a universal symbol that resonates across languages, cultures, and time zones. The heart is more expressive, enabling you to convey a range of emotions and easily connect with people. And in our tests, we found that people loved it,” the blog post continued. They also announced the news in a video, which you can watch below.
Fans did not seem too receptive to the idea, adding comments such as, “Can we talk about this for a second?,” “nooooooooooooooo this is awful,” “this absolutely reeks of panic FYI,” and “but not everything we “favorite” we “like”. Sometimes it’s just like bookmark-ing a tweet. Oh well, I’ll miss the star.”
“I think people have asked about the dislike button for many years. Today is a special day because today is the day I can say we’re working on it and shipping it,” the 31-year-old said in a question and answer session.
Last year, when asked about a dislike button, he answered, “Some people have asked for a dislike button because they want to say, ‘That thing isn’t good.’ And that’s not something that we think is good for the world. So we’re not going to build that.” We guess he changed his mind!
It has just been announced that Selena Gomez is hosting the national broadcast of We Day!

I can’t wait to share this experience with all of America, so they too can feel the contagious energy of the We Day movement,” the 22-year-old entertainer shared in a statement.

If you expected Toy Story 4 to be a continuation of Toy Story 3…well, then…it’s not.
In a recent interview with Disney Latino, Pixar president Jim Morris opened up about the next film in the franchise — and it’s going to be a romantic comedy?!
“It is not a continuation of the end of the story of Toy Story 3. Temporarily it is, but it will be a love story. It will be a romantic comedy. It will not put much focus on the interaction between the characters and children. I think it will be a very good movie,” he shared.
He continued, “The third movie ended in a beautiful way and completed a trilogy. I think this movie is not part of this trilogy. It is a separate story, which in turn I do not know if [it] will be continued. Never begin a project with that in mind.”
