Box Office Smash
Avatar: The Way of Water continues to do well at the global box office after raking up around $1.4 billion. Director James Cameron said the film would need to make at least $1.5 billion to break even and it has nearly accomplished that feat in just three weeks. The film is currently the 14th highest grossing film in history ahead of Black Panther and Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2.
'Top Gun: Maverick' Soars Again
With the way the Tom Cruise-led Top Gun: Maverick performed at the box office following its release, the fact that it has crushed its streaming numbers isn't all that surprising. Paramount+ reported that the film had become the most watched film on the platform. The OG project, Top Gun, also received a boost in streaming numbers and was up 400 percent.
Spotify's Most Streamed
Also in the streaming realm, The Weeknd's Blinding Lights has become Spotify's most streamed song ever. It was the leading track from the Canadian crooner's After Hours album, which was certified diamond by the RIAA last year. The title of most streamed song on Spotify was previously held by Ed Sheeran's Shape of You.
Welcome to My Crib
Do you remember MTV's hit show Cribs? Well, rapper Anderson Paak had some fun with his mother over the holidays and recreated an episode. He purchased his mother's four-bedroom home in Las Vegas in 2019, and it seemed it was time to show it off. The best part of it all, Mom was tasked with giving the tour and from the looks of it, Paak made a great purchase that his mother seems to enjoy endlessly.
