What’s Trending: Friday, May 13th, 2022

#Adele

o   She recently bought Sylvester Stallone’s home for $58 million.

o   And it came with an interesting perk:  A Rocky statue standing on the edge of the massive swimming pool.

o   Yes, Stallone had a poolside Rocky statue, and now Adele has a poolside Rocky statue because it's still there.

o   That doesn't necessarily mean she's keeping it, though.

o   In addition to the statue, the house also has a gym, sauna, steam room, infinity pool, cigar room, screening room, bar, art studio, and two-story guest house.

o   It's in a gated community with neighbors including Denzel Washington, Magic Johnson, Justin Bieber, and Lisa Vanderpump.

o   Word is the singer is close to finalizing a deal to bring her Vegas residency to a new home at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood.

o   Word is the aim is for a late summer start that will run through the end of  2022.

#FridayThe13th

o   It’s Friday the 13th and it’s the only one we will have this year…the next one isn’t until January.

o   So, do you think it matters, or is it just another day?  A new poll found one in five people DO think it's unlucky.

o   The poll also found some of the other things we consider unlucky:

§  Walking under a ladder?  21% of us think it causes bad luck.

§   Stepping on a crack?  12%.

§   Breaking a mirror?  21% think it's unlucky.

§   Being on the 13th floor of a building?  Ironically, 13% think it's unlucky.

§  White lighters?  8% think they're unlucky.  (There's a myth that Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Kurt Cobain had white lighters on them when they died.)

#ShakeShack

o  The best part of SMELLING a burger and fries is . . . that you're about to EAT a burger and fries. Is the smell still just as great if you're NOT?

o   Shake Shack has teamed up with a fragrance company called Apotheke to create burger and fries CANDLES.

o   The burger one smells like "a bite of a ShackBurger in the spring air," and the other, Shake & Fries, includes "notes of a salty, crispy crinkle-cut fry and a creamy, indulgent milkshake."

o    They're available as a set for $42, at ApothekeCo.com.  Jump on it now if you're interested.  They're only available for a limited time while supplies last.
