The Queen Turns 90
Celebrations were in full force as the Queen marked her 90th birthday on 21 April. Events were held throughout the year, including TV specials featuring K-middy and Prince Harry sharing their stories about our monarch and speaking of their admiration for her. It’s enough to bring a tear to our eye.
It’s even harder to speak of US President Barack Obama’s departure now we know who his successor is, but nothing can take away from his speech at his final White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Addressing the crowd of journalists, he didn’t just tackle the serious stuff – he also cracked some hilarious jokes before literally dropping the mic and declaring: ‘Obama out!’
Becky v Beyonce
When Beyoncé released Lemonade, all we could ask was: who is ‘Becky’? Bey’s lyrics seemed to relate to infidelity, so the rumour mill went into overdrive as it was claimed that designer Rachel Roy had been having an affair with Jay Z. It’s even been suggested that Kris Jenner is ‘Becky’ (we know!).
The world suffered another devastating loss when it was announced that Prince had died due to an accidental overdose at his home in Minnesota on 21 April. Tributes came pouring in from around the world. Thankfully, his music lives on.
Kylie’s lip KIT hits
When she launched the Lip Kits in 2015, Kylie Jenner practically caused a riot, with every shade selling out almost immediately. In April, she launched the glosses – Like, Literally and So Cute – which sold quicker than you could say ‘Tyga’.
