PM Justin Trudeau Gives Touching Tribute To Gord Downie

The outpouring of love, support, memories, and everything in between have been flooding today after it was announced that Canadian icon Gord Downie of The Tragically Hip, passed away last night after a hard fought battle with terminal cancer.

 

Here is the official, yet still emotional and touching, statement from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau:

 

“For almost five decades, Gord Downie uncovered and told the stories of Canada. He was the frontman of one of Canada’s most iconic bands, a rock star, artist, and poet whose evocative lyrics came to define a country.

“The Tragically Hip’s music invited us to explore places we had never been – from Mistaken Point to Churchill – and helped us understand each other, while capturing the complexity and vastness of the place we call home.

“Gord’s command of language was profound. He painted landscapes with his words, elevating Canadian geography, historical figures, and myths. When he spoke, he gave us goosebumps and made us proud to be Canadian. Our identity and culture are richer because of his music, which was always raw and honest – like Gord himself.

“In the wake of his diagnosis, Gord only fought harder for what he believed in: social justice, environmentalism, and reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples. Before passing, he shined his light on the story of 12-year-old Chanie Wenjack who died from hunger and exposure after trying to find his way home from a residential school. For his work raising awareness of Indigenous issues, he was inducted as a member of the Order of Canada in 2017.

“Gord did not rest from working for the issues he cared about, and his commitment and passion will continue to motivate Canadians for years to come.

“On behalf of all Canadians, Sophie and I offer our deepest condolences to Gord’s family, friends, bandmates and crew members, and his many, many fans. He will be sorely missed.”

Mariah Carey Caught Off Guard With Las Vegas Shooter News

Oh boy.

Mariah Carey was on Good Morning Britain doing a live interview to promote her Christmas tour, when the news about the Las Vegas shooter broke.

Some say Piers Morgan unfairly put her on the spot (she found out live on air, at the same time they did) by asking her to comment.

Others say she should’ve handled it better.

What’s your take?

Viral Video Explains Different Levels Of Hurricanes

The south is getting rocked again with yet ANOTHER hurricane 😮

Image result for hurricane irma hurricane harvey meme

And just when you thought Hurricane Harvey was intense, Hurricane Irma is said to be the BIGGEST storm to hit the Atlantic!!

The Caribbean (Cuba, Puerto Rico, Barbados, etc.) and part of the southeastern U.S. (Florida especially) will be feeling it over the next week as Irma rolls in.

 

These major storms tend to lighten up by the time they reach us here in Canada (if they even make it this far) so we don’t always get to witness how intense a hurricane can be first hand.

This video, created by The Weather Channel, gives a look at what each category of hurricane can look like:

Lady Gaga Postpones MTL Show, Buys Pizza For Upset Fans

Lady Gaga is back on the road for her Joanne World Tour, and so far, fans are loving it 😉

She plaid Citi Field a week ago, on August 28th. Apparently it didn’t turn out well afterwards…

…because yesterday (Monday), Gaga had to cancel her Montreal show, and gave this explanation on twitter:

“to my beautiful fans. I couldn’t be more devastated that I am unable to perform tonight. I sing this entire show live, and pride myself in giving it all, but when I sang in the rain at Citi Field I got sick and have been pushing through. I am so sorry to anyone who had their heart set on seeing me tonight. I love you. Xoxo, Joanne.”

 

I can barely get dressed without whining when I’m sick… imagine trying to sing for hours straight! This seems very understandable, and it’s good she’s taking care of herself first.

But that didn’t stop Gaga from feeling terrible about it, so to make it up to her fans, she offered to throw a pizza party:

It was no Joanne Tour, but fans seemed pretty grateful for it:
