Katy Perry is a girl after my heart. What do you do when you’re partying at a super cool Las Vegas club and you’re undeniably hungry? Well if you’re Katy Perry you have a pizza party. At least that’s what she did on Friday while out partying. Katy treated her whole squad to an impromptu […]
It’s been two years since we last saw Bella, Edward, and their daughter Renesmee (still the worst name ever) live happily ever after in that little meadow in Forks.

The Commission emphasized that it maintains the power under Section 16 of the Broadcasting Act to require disclosure of information and that participants cannot pick and choose the parts of the regulatory process they participate in. Yet rather than enforce that power, it has decided not to fight the Netflix and Google refusal to disclose information, instead opting for a regulatory right to forget.
