With MTV at the forefront of teaching a whole new generation on how to act socially, the do’s and don’ts of a relationship, and the no-goes of personal hygiene. Yes, Guy Code and Girl Code are not only ‘teaching’ a new generation about everything they ‘need’ to know about becoming a man/woman living the in the 21 century, but both shows are doing it in an entertaining way. I prefer to watch Girl Code; it’s like lifting the veil on the secrets of the opposite sex. It’s not a perfect representation of the new generation of girls into women, but does give a plethora of opinions and statements to entertain young viewers. A new show (online) has caught us here at So So Active by surprise with insight on a group of Americans untapped by most shows on television.

Everyone remembers the leak of the nude celebrity photos a few weeks ago, known to many as The Fappening. The leaker, who’s a user on the site 4Chan, at first promised to leak the nudes of multiple celebrities including Kim Kardashian, soccer star Hope Solo, and Vanessa Hudgens among others but they have not yet been released until now. It seems like the FBI just started an investigation on the leak on the 31 of August, which featured graphic and very personal photos of actress Jennifer Lawrence and model Kate Upton, among others. Now with the FBI busy with investigating the leaks, former American Idol contestant has come forth to declare his unwarranted opinion on the whole matter.

How about them MTV EMA’s in Amsterdam! Aliens, astronauts, a flying Katy Perry and a Miley Cyrus lighting up a joint on stage…! When we all though Miley couldn’t surprise us anymore she decides to smoke on stage! Why? Because she can!
The singer has never masked her pot smoking just like other artist such as: James Franco, Anna Farris, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Macey Gray, Robin Thicke, Justin Timberlake, Morgan Freeman and many more.. Lady Gaga also came clean in an interview back in 2011 quote, “I smoke a lot of pot when I write music. I’m not gonna sugarcoat it ….”
It has been said that the sticky icky has helped artists become more creative with their work. Songs such as “Born This Way” was written when Lady gaga was on her high cloud along with a bottle of whiskey. If smoking helps the artist produce better quality of music would society be more accepting of it? Or is it horse rubbish and weed is being abused for its psychoactive drug affect?
