This first story had me trying to remember what my first words were as a child (spoiler: I couldn’t). Princess Charlotte said her first words in public during their visit in Canada. The 17-month old said “pop pop” as she ran towards the party balloons at a recent event.
Speaking of making history (if you thought the first story counts as making history), Dolly Parton just made history as the only country artist to ever chart Top 20 hits in 6 consecutive decades. This is a feat nobody has achieved before, as she charted songs in the Hot Country Top 20 in every decade since the 1960s.
Walk Off the Earth performed Canada’s national anthem last night at the World Cup of Hockey final game, but the public got a bit upset at the band on social media for what some thought was a change to the iconic lyrics of “O Canada”. Twitter users were mad when the band sang “all of us command” in the place of “all thy sons command”, with users upset because of a Liberal MP’s attempt to change the lyrics to make the national anthem more gender-neutral. But the band responded to point out that “all of us command” is actually not a new lyric, but instead the original words of the song when it was written in 1908.
