Omicron Challenge: Funniest, Wildest & Pettiest Omarion Variant Tweets/Memes

The pandemic is posed to be over

If there’s one thing Black Twitter is going to do, it’s joke about a serious situation like the emergence of yet another alarming COVID variant that currently has the whole entire world in a frenzy.

First identified in South Africa, the latest COVID update (named after Greek letter Omicron or a Transformers villain) has caused concern among public health officials while fueling hilarious Omarion variant memes across social media.

On Monday, the World Health Organization called Omicron a variant of concern and warned that the global risks were “very high” despite very little being known about the virus.

So far, cases have been identified in 20 countries including Britain, Italy, Belgium and the Netherlands.

As of right now, Omicron hasn’t been detected in the United States yet but experts say it’s only a matter of time before the variant pop-locks in the states.

Based on early studies, it’s believed Omicron may only cause mild illness based on limited data from South Africa’s cases among young people.

Naturally, top infectious disease expert Dr. Fauci urged people to get a booster shot that would most likely provide protection against severe disease.

“We’ve said it over and over again and it deserves repeating. If you’re not vaccinated, get vaccinated, get boosted if you are vaccinated, continue to use the mitigation methods, namely masks, avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces,” he said.

How are you feeling about the Omarion variant? Will you be getting the booster if you haven’t already? Tell us down below and peep the funniest, wildest, and pettiest Omarion variant tweets/memes on the flip.

“They say in order to keep the Omarion Variant away, you have to do this routine 3 times in the mirror” – no, seriously

“Omicron or Omarion, either way, please get vaxxed or boosted like you “Post to Be” – A+ tweet

Louie Anderson: Henry Winkler, Gilbert Gottfried & More Honor ‘Dear Friend’ After His Death At 68

Louie Anderson: Henry Winkler, Gilbert Gottfried & More Honor ‘Dear Friend’ After His Death At 68

The tragic death of Louie Anderson left such stars as Pauley Shore, Gilbert Gottfried, and DL Hughley heartbroken over the loss of their ‘kind’ and ‘gracious’ friend.

The death of Louie Anderson on Friday (Jan. 21) sent shockwaves throughout the comedy world. The Baskets star and standup comedy icon reportedly passed away while receiving treatment for non-Hodgkins lymphoma, a diagnosis he announced just days before. While many had hoped that Louie, 68, would beat cancer, such was not the case, which left many of his peers devastated. “No words!” tweeted DL Hughley. “RIP Louie!! One of my all-time favorites.” “RIP Louie Anderson! You were as gracious and kind as you were funny. Rest well!! Keep ’em laughing in Heaven,” tweeted Viola Davis.

“Louie Anderson. Your generosity of spirit will cover the world from above,” tweeted Henry Winkler. “We are so lucky you were on earth for a moment, spreading your humor all over like bars of living gold. Good Bye.” Michael McKean, best known for Spinal Tap and the Christopher Guest mockumentaries, tweeted how Baskets was “such a phenomenal ‘second act’ for Louie Anderson. I wish he’d gotten a third. RIP.” Gilbert Gottfried posted a photo of Bob Saget, who passed away on Jan. 9 at age 65, taking a selfie alongside Gilbert and Louie. “This photo is very sad now. RIP Bob Saget and RIP Louie Anderson. Both good friends that will be missed.”

Hours before Louie passed, Pauley Shore tweeted, “Attention comedians and [The Comedy Store] alumni’s I say this with a heavy heart just left the hospital in Las Vegas where Louie Anderson his sisters and close friend were kind enough to let me say my goodbyes he’s still with us but keep him in your prayers.” When a fan responded, “please let him know that we love him, Pauly,” the Son In Law star replied, “I did.”

 “Louie Anderson was a very dear friend and one of the people who very early in my career believed in me,” tweeted Travon Free, “and would put me and a couple of other comics he loved up in a hotel in Vegas and pay us to open for him when we needed money. What a huge loss. Rest in peace my friend.”

Legendary record producer, musician, and poker player Steve Albini recounted how Louie Anderson – who played in the 2006 World Series of Poker Main Event — once “blew 80 grand, all his money, gambling in LA, then rented a car, drove to Vegas in the middle of the night and used a casino line of credit to win it all back in the pit by sunup, caught a 7am flight and went straight to shoot a 7-11 commercial. Requiescat.”

Born in 1953 and raised in St. Paul, Minnesota, Louie rose to prominence in the early 1980s after a star-making appearance on The Tonight Show, then hosted by Johnny Carson. Louie’s observational comedy about his life growing up in St. Paul was the basis of the animated series, Life With Louie, which introduced him to a generation of GenXers and Millennials. Throughout Louie’s career, he appeared in movies like Coming to America, The Wrong Guys, and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. He also hosted Family Feud from 2000 to 2002. His run on Baskets earned him a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.

Adem Dalipi Goes ‘Out Of The Box’ To Ask For A Second Chance At Love With ‘Call You Mine’

Adem Dalipi Goes ‘Out Of The Box’ To Ask For A Second Chance At Love With ‘Call You Mine’

If you’ve ever lost sleep and felt ‘out of touch’ while missing someone, then you know the pain at the heart of Adem Dalipi’s new song.

Something’s wrong at the start of “Call You Mine,” the new video from Adem Dalipi, premiering here at HollywoodLife. The young pop/R&B artist is out on a boat with some friends, floating around the water as the sun sets. We flash to earlier in the day when the party was in full swing. The ladies are flirting. The bros are chilling. However, Adem doesn’t seem to be in the mood; in fact, he seems distracted, and he is. Adem is haunted by the thoughts of a former flame, one he wants to reignite. The smooth singer swears he’s been “waiting for a message from you / I’m losing sleep” while ignoring the rest of the world. As the sun sets on “Call You Mine,” Adem is alone, hoping for an answer to that question. ‘

Not only does “Call You Mine” become the next big song to send to your crush to let them know you’re thinking about them, but it also showcases a new musical side from the Chicago-based singer. “‘Call You Mine’ is something out of the ordinary from what I usually write,” Adem tells HollywoodLife, “and honestly, [it] was a bit out of the box with the writing process too. It started with a synth loop, which really pushed my writing aspects as it allowed me to mess with the vibe, creating this pop-rap feel. The guitar part was a fun touch to the song as well.”

“Overall, this whole song and project was a blast to work with,” he adds, “especially with the music video we made for it, which really depicts the emotions put into the song.”

Adem isn’t letting the grass grow under his feet. After a phenomenal year – which saw him release four songs (“Sixth St.,” “Through Anothers Eyes,” “Empty Promises,” “Nothing I Wouldn’t Do”) and continue to grow his fanbase, Adem has started 2022 off right.

Born in Rockford, Illinois, and growing up in the small town of Belvidere, Adem started showing a natural talent for singing at an early age. By eleven, he learned how to play guitar and wrote his first song. It wouldn’t be long before Hollywood came calling – literally. He found his way out west while appearing on American Idol in 2020, impressing the judges and audiences alike. Adem parlayed that newfound attention into a rising career, and others started to take notice of this bright talent. In addition to getting love from the Windy City – both Chicago SoundCheck and the Chicago Music Guide have featured him – he recently became a Yamaha Guitar Ambassador. Expect greatness from him, and if you want to call him your favorite new artist, you can go ahead.
