Dear Justin Bieber

Are celebrities like Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga responsible for the behaviour of their fans?

Some music fans, Gaga’s Little Monsters for instance or Bieber’s Beliebers, are notorious for their extreme behaviour when it comes to defending their idol. Should the celebrities they so ardently worship correct them when they go too far?

New Faces for the Greenback

An assignment about money. But it’s not what you think.

The American dollar, the greenback, has a picture of a famous person on the front. All these persons happen to be men. Isn’t it time for change?

Lines too Blurred?

One of the most popular hits in 2013 was Blurred lines by Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams. However, not everybody liked it.

Blurred lines was one of the best-selling and most often downloaded hits of 2013. It was a huge success, all over the world. It was probably also one of the most sexist songs ever released. It was considered so sexist that it was actually banned from quite a few universities, starting in Scotland.

Death of a King

The bones of King Richard III were found underneath a Leicester parking lot.

Archaeologists knew that he was killed in battle on Bosworth Field, defeated by Henry Tudor. His remains had never been found. Until now. Or so it seems ….

Gun buyback

A few short weeks after the Newtown shooting in which 20 children were killed, there was a gun buyback in Los Angeles.

When there’s a gun buyback you can exchange your gun for a shopping voucher. What do you expect? Will this be a very popular thing in the US?
