This week was filled with news, as new hosts were crowned, celeb babies were born, and angels graced us with their long strides. Here is this week’s E10!

2. As the holiday season brings joy and cheer, it also brings its share of angels, and this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show featured the sultriest of them all. The sexiest event of the year took place in London on Dec. 2, with all of Hollywood’s hottest stars in attendance. In Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show manner, the show continued its history of dramatic themes, opening the show with a Gilded Angels theme, which featured "goddesses drenched in gold leaf." The various themes included fairy tales and exotic travelers, and this year's finale was an angel ball theme, which is said to have been nothing less than a celebration of pure elegance. The show also had the hottest performers, with Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Hozier and Ariana Grande gracing the catwalk. While Swift blended in with the models in stature and sex appeal, Grande stood out not only for her petite physique but also for her facial expression as she crouched trying to avoid an angel’s wings.

In her rant, the rapper targeted Iggy Azalea for not speaking out following a grand jury’s decision to not indict a New York City police officer in the death of Eric Garner. Banks wrote, “its funny to see people Like Igloo Australia silent when these things happen... Black Culture is cool, but black issues sure aren't huh?” Banks continued, “If you're down to ride with us bi*ch you gotta RIDE ALL THE WAY…” Azalea later responded to the rant saying she had been in rehearsals. “Theres more to sparking a change than trolling on social media. World issues shouldnt be used as a poor excuse to promote fan battles. Make sure you do something to let YOUR government know how you feel when something is unjust, not JUST your followers on twitter...” She continued by advocating that people “sign petitions, hit the streets and protest” to rebuild communities.
