Disney purists are not to happy about the #GiveElsaAGirlfriend hashtag, as Disney has never had a gay princess character. But the LGBTQ community is rallying around the idea that Elsa, from the Oscar award winning movie Frozen, needs a love interest too. Supporters of #GiveElsaAGirlfriend believe giving Elsa another princess to love would set a good example of love, acceptance and tolerence.

Disney is currently making more Frozen movies and Elsa's romantic interests are a much talked about storyline.

The idea has even inspired some fan art:



No word yet on what Disney thinks of #GiveElsaAGirlfriend.

Celebrities get asked for pictures all the time. After a while it probably gets tiresome. Comedian Amy Schumer told her fans on Saturday, "I will not take picture[s] with people anymore."

She says it all started when a dude in Greenville, South Carolina, ran up to her and shoved a camera in her face and was threatening. She reveals she told him to stop and then he replied, "No it's America and we paid for you!"

Amy goes on to describe the scene, "This was in front of his daughter. I was saying stop and no. Great message to your kid," she writes.

The guy (Leslie Brewer) says he wasn't threatening but he did post a video on Instagram captioned with, "Amy schumer just got mad at me and cussed me out lmao!!! Awesome." Amy got some backlash from some other fans for not wanting to take photos anymore. Here's her response:


She should thank the fans when possible as well as take photos, but she should never feel threatened. And while America loves her, we do not own her.

Beyonce
No pressure Beyonce. Her five previous studio albums have all hit #1 on the Billboard 200 Chart, but Lemonade was released a little differently. It was a visual album shown on HBO. And the audio version was only released via the Tidal streaming service at first. So did that prevent her from debuting at #1? Of course not, it's Beyonce!

Queen Bey got her 6th #1 album, with 653,000 equivalent album units in its first week. "Equivalent album units" factors in streaming as well.

People protesting the circus' use of elephants
The elephants in the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus took their final bow Sunday night after 200 years. This was after years of pressure from animal rights groups.

In 2012 actor Alec Baldwin said, "It is hard for me to believe that anyone would have to be dragged kicking and screaming into show business, but for the elephants with Ringling Brothers, that's exactly what happens."

Their final performance:

President Barack Obama
President Obama made a parody video about retirement starring Michelle Obama, John Boehner, and Snapchat.

Watch to see him try and get his driver's license, do things while Michelle isn't watching, and share a cry with the former Speaker of the House:

Justin Bieber
Justin Bieber's dad is engaged, and the guest list for his party was pretty unique. Justin was there, and that's normal. But so was a live tiger and Batman.

Check out the full gallery here, including a bunch of other Superheroes. Is it just me or does this feel more like an 8-year-olds birthday party than an engagement party?

Radiohead
Can you erase yourself from the Internet? Probably not. But Radiohead is trying.

Fans are saying this is almost definitely happening because of a new album release. Normally musicians launch new websites and reignite their social media accounts when they have a new project coming out, but it appears Radiohead is doing the opposite.

Their website slowly faded to white. Their Facebook and Twitter posts slowly disappeared. Even their Google+ page has been blanked.

It's a pretty interesting approach! I'd expect a new Radiohead album this week.

Will Ferrell

We reported that Will Ferrell was going to play Ronald Regan with dementia in a comedy - Now it looks like his isn't going to. 
 


Did he change his mind? Not exactly:

"The ‘Reagan’ script is one of a number of scripts that had been submitted to Will Ferrell which he had considered," the actor's rep told FOXNews.com. "While it is by no means an ‘Alzheimer’s comedy’ as has been suggested, Mr. Ferrell is not pursuing this project."

I'm one of those people who uses comedy to cope with pain, so I believe humor can be found in almost everything. I've had close friends share very funny stories about how they're dealing with cancer. However someone should have realized attaching Reagan's name to this movie was going to cause an uproar.

A salt shaker that's been knocked over
Perhaps it would be asSALT rather than assault? #SeeWhatIDidThere #ImADork

Police were called to ​a restaurant in Georgia and found a man with a bleeding lip wound. According to the Associated Press, the altercation began when some members of comedian Kat Williams' family arrived at the restaurant and seated themselves. An argument broke out between the family and restaurant staff when the family was told the seats were reserved for another group. When Williams arrived, the argument escalated and Williams threw a salt shaker at the restaurant manager.

Williams was arrested and charged with one count of battery. He bonded out of jail early Thursday morning. 

2016 has gotten off to a rough start for Williams - He's already been involved in a series of arrests.
