Grandma's hilarious reaction after watching explicit Anaconda video

She has to be the cutest and most open-minded Grandma ever.

This grandson thought that letting his grandma watch Nicki Minaj's latest music video would help her "broaden her horizons" and get a glimpse into "what was happening in the world right now".

OMG! Her reaction to Minaj's explicit Anaconda music video was totally cute although she was thoroughly shocked at how much butt the singer exposed. 

Let's check out 7 of the funniest questions this grandchild asks his grandmother and her reactions as they watch the video together: 

1. It starts with him asking her to sit with him in his room. He then asks her, before playing the very explicit video, if she's ready to watch some porn.

Just in case you're wondering, she replies: "No..Why would I want to watch porn for?"

2. She sees the start of the video (with Minaj's butt) and her reaction just says it all.

3. He sneakily mouths the song while watching his grandma's 'traumatised' reaction.

4. Remember the scene where she's 'making a smoothie'. 

During this scene (picture above) in the video he asks her: "Would you want her to make you a smoothie, because I would."

Her reaction?

5. He then takes it another step further by telling her that "(Minaj) is the kind of girl he wants to marry".

Check out the panic.

Warning: Video shows snippets of Minaj's explicit video. But, if you're of age, check out the full video here (not with your grandmother, please):

Spurs to spend a season away from White Hart Lane

Spurs could be forced to play all of their home games away from White Hart Lane for one season due to a delay for the construction of their new stadium.
Spurs could be forced to play all of their home games away from White Hart Lane for one season due to a delay for the construction of their new stadium.

Tottenham Hotspur are facing the prospect of spending a season playing their home matches away from White Hart Lane.

The Lilywhites were on track with their plans to build a new stadium next to their existing 36,240-capacity ground after a compulsory land purchase order had been approved.

But a legal challenge has resulted in a revision of the north London club's plans and the new 56,250-capacity stadium will not be ready in time for the 2017/2018 English Premier League season.


A statement released on Spurs' official website read: "We should like to advise supporters that it is highly unlikely we shall be able to open the new stadium at the start of the 2017/2018 season.

"The club has revised its construction programme in order to take the shortest possible time to construct.

"This now therefore involves the club moving away from the Lane during construction for a period of one season, to start at the beginning of a season in order to comply with Premier League rules.

"We are currently undertaking due diligence on alternative stadium options."

The capacity increase will allow Spurs to generate more matchday revenue and allow Spurs to strengthen their challenge among the EPL's elite clubs.

The BBC listed Wembley Stadium, the Olympic Stadium - which will be taken over by West Ham United in 2016 - and the Stadium MK as possible alternative grounds for Spurs to play on as they await the completion of their new home.

New Face 2014: Minook

Jun Minook, 17, came to Singapore from South Korea eight years ago with her mother and older sister.

"Our mother really wanted us to learn English in an English-speaking country," she said.

For their education, their mother gave up her job at the United Nations Children's Fund (Unicef) in Korea.

Their father still works in Korea, and the family reunites in Korea or Singapore during year-end holidays.

Minook said of her first years here: "There was a language barrier because I wasn't fluent in English, and a huge cultural difference.

"When I came, I was really 'blur'."

But improving her communication skills was never a chore.

"I like conversing with people and learning their different backgrounds. I'm thinking of becoming a journalist, or having any job where I can get to know people, instead of sitting at a desk for fixed hours every day," she said.

She also continues to help Unicef on trips back to Korea.

"My sister and I accompany our mother to fund-raisers and projects for the poorer parts of Korea."

And her ability to speak English comes into play.

"We have an advantage now because we can approach more tourists to donate."

Man Utd report record revenue

Manchester United have posted a record annual revenue figure of £433.2 million ($883.9m) as well as a profit of £23.8m for 2013/2014 despite a disastrous season on the pitch.

The Red Devils endured a tumultuous season following the retirement of legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

They finished the English Premier League season in a disappointing seventh place under his handpicked successor David Moyes, causing them to lose out on a place in European football for the first time since 1990.

United's dismal performances cost Moyes his job and the club's report revealed that the former Everton manager and his sacked staff received £5.2m in compensation.

According to the Mail Online, projections indicate that United's revenue will dip by 10 per cent as a result of their failure to qualify for the Champions League.


Despite the turmoil at the club, executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is happy with United's business dealings.

He is confident that the football side of things will get better under the stewardship of Louis van Gaal.

Woodward said: "We are very proud of the results achieved in fiscal year 2014 as we once again generated record revenues.

"With Louis van Gaal at the helm as manager, and the recent signing of some of the world's leading players to further strengthen our squad, we are very excited about the future and believe it's the start of a new chapter in the club's history.

"Louis' footballing philosophy fits very well with Manchester United and he has an impressive track record of success throughout his career, winning league titles with every club he has managed."

Singapore head coach Bernd Stange will miss the Asian Games due to illness.

The Football Association of Singapore (FAS) has confirmed that head coach Bernd Stange and midfield star Hariss Harun will not travel to Incheon, South Korea, for the Asian Games.

National assistant coach Aide Iskandar will deputise for Stange after the German had been advised by doctors not to travel due to viral fever.

Hariss was supposed to be one of Singapore's overaged players at the Under-23 tournament, but FAS was unable to secure his release from Malaysian Super League side Johor Darul Ta'zim because of their involvement in the Malaysia Cup.

Instead, Warriors FC goalkeeper Hassan Sunny as well as LionsXII defenders Afiq Yunos and Baihakki Khaizan will fill the three overaged player slots in the 20-man squad.

Singapore are in Group C along with Tajikistan, Oman and Palestine.

The Lions, who are ranked 152nd in the world, will first take on world No 120 side Tajikistan on Sept 14 at the Ansan Wu Stadium.

The Games will be held from Sept 19 to Oct 4, with football starting a few days earlier.

Goalkeepers: Hassan Sunny, Rudy Khairullah
Defenders: Shakir Hamzah, Fadli Kamis, Baihakki Khaizan, Afiq Yunos, Amirul Adli, Al-Qaasimy Rahman, Safuwan Baharudin
Midfielders: M Anumanthan, Faris Ramli, Suria Prakash, Nazrul Nazari, Adam Swandi, Zulfahmi Arifin

M'sian teen arrested for abusing puppy, swinging it by its tail

Malaysia police have arrested a teenager who was seen in a video abusing a puppy.

Malaysian police have arrested a teenager who was seen in a video abusing a puppy.

The founder of Malaysian Independent Animal Rescue, Ms Puspa Rani, posted on the group's Facebook page that the 15-year-old was arrested on Tuesday morning and later released on bail.

A video was posted online on Sept 6 of the boy battering and abusing a puppy. The incident happened in Negeri Sembilan.

Incensed by boy's actions

The heartbreaking video, which went viral on social media, showed the boy swinging the canine around by the tail and throwing it high into the air.

The dog can initially be heard whimpering. It later died from its injuries.

(The video is too graphic to be shown.)

Netizens were incensed by the boy's actions and called for legal action to be taken against him.

The teen will be brought to court in 14 days.

'Teach him about life and love'

Jempol Superintendent Hamzah Alias said investigation was underway and that the case would be evaluated by the deputy public prosecutor.

"Our focus is to correct, and therefore we would perhaps have him under the supervision of a welfare officer," he said.

"He is underage and he will be sitting for his exams this year. Therefore, it would be good if certain quarters allow the law take its course, instead of taking things into their own hands," The Star online quoted him as saying.

Ms Puspa, who is actively on the case, said she will request the judge to sentence the boy to community service and hand him a RM200 (S$80) fine.

"Arresting him and fining him will not make him a better person or resolve the issue and we want to teach him about life and love," she wrote in her Facebook post on Wednesday.

Watch South Korea's mascot hilariously fake an injury

No one likes a diver in football - but South Korea's white tiger mascot Baekho might just be an exception.

The mascot was seated at pitch side during the Taegeuk Warriors' 1-0 defeat to Uruguay at Goyang Stadium when a stray ball riocheted off an official's knee into its face.

Hysterical theatrics ensued.

While a little over the top, Baekho's antics certainly must have elicited a laugh from those who witnessed it.

It is not known if he was booked for simulation.

At least he really was struck in the face, unlike Rivaldo at the 2002 World Cup...
