It’s been a big week in the world of entertainment, and with everyone getting into the swing of busy classes and hectic schedules, you may have missed some big headlines. Here are nine things that happened this week that you may have missed. 

  1. Snapchat unveiled new update: If you haven’t seen it on at least one person’s story in the last day, then you must be living under a rock. On Tuesday, Snapchat unveiled a new feature that allows users to animate their selfies by tapping on their face. You can now vomit rainbows and send it to your friends, so that’s pretty cool.
  2. Dancing with the stars premiered: On Monday night, 13.6 million people tuned in to the season 21 premiere of Dancing with the Stars. Alexa and Carlos Penavega became the first-ever married couple to compete, with former Backstreet Boy heartthrob Nick Carter and animal lover Bindi Irwin taking the top spots of the night. Tune in to ABC Monday nights at 8 p.m. to follow along with all the action.
  3. Facebook announced that they will be unveiling a new “dislike” button: Good news! Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced Tuesday that the company is working on developing a new dislike button. So now you can hit a “thumbs down” on those annoying negative statuses that just seem to always clog up your timeline.
  4. Last week on Jimmy Fallon: So many awesome things happened on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last week, including the sixth installment of “History of Rap” with Justin Timberlake, a very entertaining Donald Trump appearance and an epic lip sync battle with Ellen Degeneres that was judged by JT himself. Check out the show’s YouTube channel for all of the awesome clips.
  5. Every Kardashian/Jenner has their own app now: That’s right! Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kylie and Kendall all previewed their new apps at an Apple Store in SoHo on Monday afternoon. All of the apps offer an inside look at each of the girl’s unique lives and interests, including Kourtney’s tips on being a mom and Khloe’s fitness advice. Which app will you download? 
  6. New York fashion week: Some of the biggest celebrities in the world took the streets of New York this past weekend for New York Fashion Week to see the biggest designers and models in the world. The Kardashians, Jaden Smith and Kaitlyn Bristowe were all in appearance.
  7. Miss America: Millions skipped Sunday night football to see which of the 50 contestants would be crowned Miss America. Kent State graduate student Sarah Hider was representing Ohio, but in the end, Miss Oklahoma Betty Cantrell took the crown after a very unusual Q&A sesh where she accused NFL quarterback Tom Brady of cheating.
  8. Arnold Schwarzenegger to take the place of Donald Trump on Celebrity Apprentice: NBC announced this week that Arnold Schwarzenegger will replace Donald Trump on next season’s Celebrity Apprentice. I think we are all looking forward to how it will sound when he says the iconic line: “You’re fired.”
  9. Nickelodeon announced new channel with all 90’s shows: Talk about nostalgia! Nickelodeon recently announced The Splat!, which will be a programming block beginning in October that will feature our favorite shows from the 90’s. Although not many details have been released just yet, The Splat!’s YouTube channel posted a montage with clips from classic cartoons like Rugrats, CatDog and Rocket Power
