Internet staple Yahoo has agreed to buy the ever-popular blogging site, Tumblr, for a whopping $1.1 billion!!
That price tag makes this major deal the LARGEST acquisition of a social media company in YEARS, overshadowing Facebook's $1 billion purchase of Instagram last year.
The purchase was made by Yahoo chief executive Marissa Mayer in an effort to make the fading company appeal to a younger crowd.
With over 108 million blogs, Tumblr will (hopefully) push Yahoo into the forefront of the social networking and smart phone revolution.
But don't worry guys! Your fave blogging site will not change TOO much.
In an open letter to loyal followers, Tumblr founder David Karp said:

Who knows makeup better than a man?
Well, Nigel Barker better hope that's true or else he's in for a huge wakeup call. The former America's Next Top Model judge is going from snapping pics to glossing lips as he plans to launch TWO makeup lines next year!

Star Trek Into Darkness Does NOT Meet $100 Million Box Office Expectations, But Still Beats Iron Man 3!
Star Trek Into Darkness may have tried to boldly go where no blockbuster had gone before, but unfortunately, it appears to have fallen a few million dollars short of that!
Although the J.J. Abrams-directed sequel was expected to rack in between $90-$100 million during its opening box office weekend, the numbers are now in….and apparently, audiences were not as thrilled to see Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto battle it out with Benedict Cumberbatch, as it only secured about $70.6 million!
But don't fret, Trekkies!
The flick STILL beat out all of the competition for the weekend's number one spot domestically, and in the process crushed both Iron Man 3, which came in second with $35.2 million, and The Great Gatsby, which made a cool $23.4 and rounded out the top three!
Ch-ch-check out the rest of the weekend's box office top ten…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Ummm, this is going to be so beyond ridic, riiight??
Well, that task might be a little easier now that CoverGirl is teaming up with the hit flick to launch a Capitol Collection makeup line!
Can you imagine the color palettes about to rock our worlds?!
And if any brand can get it right it'll be CoverGirl because the makeup artists on the set of Hunger Games used the brand on the cast to create those AH-Mazing looks.
But please don't fight each other to the death for this collection because there will be plenty of it for everyone when it hits shelves in November!
Meanwhile, you can wet your tastebuds on the print and TV ad campaigns about to roll out.
