1. Beyonce Supports Hillary Clinton

Jay-Z, Beyonce, Chance the Rapper and Big Sean urged voters to head to the polls on Tuesday and backed Clinton’s candidacy. The Cleveland concert was only touted as a Jay-Z performance, but Beyonce joined in an effort to drum up support with young people. “I want my daughter to grow up seeing a woman lead our country and knowing that her possibilities are limitless, and that’s why I am with her,” she said.

2. Starbucks changes its festive drinks range

Around this time of year, it’s all about those red Starbucks cups. But Starbucks have made a huge change to the way they do things after news reports showed just how much sugar the festive range actually contained. The coffee house has promised to reduce some of the drink’s sugar content by up to 22 percent.

3. Facebook sued over adverts

A class-action lawsuit is accusing Facebook of breaking housing and job ad discrimination laws. Last week, a Pro Publica investigation revealed that Facebook lets marketers exclude users by “ethnic affinity.” Facebook has argued that its “ethnic affinity” tag doesn’t count as an actual identity trait.

 

4. Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian announce makeup collab

Khloe is trying her hand at a makeup line, and who better to collaborate with than her sister Kylie? Dubbed the Koko Kollection, the line includes four new lip kit shades in a special-edition golden packaging. The three shades are Gorg (a burgundy shade), Okurrr (fuschia), Khlo$ (a nude) and a sparkly gloss Damn Gina.

5. New Apple patent shows a bendable iPhone is possible
