Adele framed Celine Dion’s used gum | — Australia’s leading news site



Imagine being so enamoured of your idol that you would frame something that was once in their mouth. Eww.

    Some gum like you.

    Adele loves Celine Dion so much, she owns a piece of the singer’s gum — post-chew, reported Page Six.

    During Vogue’s most recent “73 Questions” YouTube segment, Adele, 33, confessed that a framed piece of the “Because You Loved Me” artist’s gum is her most prized possession.

    “James Corden, who’s a friend of mine but also does Carpool Karaoke, which I did, he did it with her and knew how much of a fan of hers I was,” the “Easy On Me” singer explained. “And so he made her spit her gum into a piece of paper and framed it for me.

    “And it’s my proudest possession!” she added with a smile and slight giggle.

    She later claimed Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” is the song she’s covered the most throughout her life.

    Dion, 53, was featured on Carpool Karaoke in May 2019, where she sang “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now,” “I Drove All Night” and even gave “Baby Shark” a go while riding with Corden.

    Dubbing Dion “Queen Celine,” Adele paid a visit to her idol back in 2018, attending one of her Las Vegas shows as Dion recovered from a horrific bout with the flu.

    “Wasn’t able to do all my shows, but was thrilled that Adele came to one of them … I love her so much,” the Grammy winner captioned a backstage photo at the time.

    Wearing a Celine Dion shirt, Adele responded, “Queen Celine! What a show, an absolute highlight of my life. Thank you so much for the attention to your crowd and insane humour.”

    Social networking websites launch features to encourage users to get boosters





    Facebook Instagram and TikTok are launching new features to encourage people to get their coronavirus booster jabs.

    From Friday, users will be able to update their profiles with frames or stickers to show that they have had their top-up jab or aim to when they become eligible.

    It follows on from people previously being able to show they have had their first and second jabs on certain social networking websites and apps.

    TikTok also held a “grab a jab” event in London earlier this year.

    I urge everyone who is eligible – don’t delay, get your vaccine or top up jab today to protect yourself and your loved ones

    More than 16 million booster vaccines have now been given across the UK.

    People who are aged 40 and above and received their second dose of their vaccine at least six months ago are currently eligible to have their booster.

    A new campaign advert is also being launched on Friday, which shows how Covid-19 can build up in enclosed spaces and how to prevent that from happening.

    Vaccines minister Maggie Throup said:  “Getting your booster is one of the most important things you can do to protect yourself and your family this winter.

    “It is fantastic to see some of the biggest household names further back the phenomenal vaccine rollout, allowing their users to proudly display that they have played their part in helping us build a wall of defence across the country.

    “I urge everyone who is eligible – don’t delay, get your vaccine or top-up jab today to protect yourself and your loved ones.”

    How many hashtags should you use to get the most ‘Likes’ on Instagram?

    Hashtags are a key feature of Instagram posts. In fact, they have become an essential means of ensuring more ‘Likes’ on social media – so long as you choose them wisely.

    But how many hashtags should you use to maximise your popularity on the social network? The answer might surprise you.

    It’s a question that many Instagram users ask themselves: what’s the right number of hashtags to add to a post? To find out, the Later platform analysed 18 million Instagram posts, excluding videos, Reels and Stories.

    Interestingly, Later’s results differ from Instagram’s own recommendations. According to Later’s analysis, using more hashtags helps get better results in terms of “reach”, or the percentage of users exposed to the post. By using 20 hashtags, Later observed an optimal average reach rate of just under 36%. Using 30 hashtags gets the next-best reach rate. With five hashtags, reach hits just under 24%.

    And while a post’s reach is important, engagement is even more so. From “Likes” and comments to shares and follows – on average, 30 hashtags appears to result in better engagement rates: “When it comes to average engagement rate, using 30 Instagram hashtags per feed post results in the most likes and comments,” says Later’s research.

    Yet, at the end of September 2021, Instagram advised its creators to use between three and five hashtags for their posts, while warning them against using too many. The social network advised that using 10 to 20 hashtags per post “will not help you get additional distribution”.

    For Later, there could be other reasons behind Instagram’s recommendations: “As Instagram continues to expand their discoverability and SEO tools, it makes sense that they want users to experiment with fewer, more relevant hashtags – this could help them accurately categorise and recommend your posts in suggested content streams, like the Instagram Reels feed or the updated hashtag search tabs,” the website explains. – AFP Relaxnews
