Since 1990 when the first Home Alone movie graced our screens and changed our lives forever, the nostalgia has been building.

We've waited SO LONG to see Macaulay Culkin give us more Home Alone magic, and now our wishes have been granted, courtesy of Google.

Yes, Google have somehow persuaded the former child star to recreate some of the film's classic scenes, and it's as special as you might imagine.

The actor tweeted the 'Hey Google' ad yesterday, and sent the internet into mayhem;

It seems that Peter and Kate McCallister's parenting skills haven't improved in 30 years, but we're sure that raising about 2930282 children in a beautiful twelve-level house can't be as simple as it appears.

I mean, we've all gone and holiday and forgotten something vital. We've never forgotten a child, but sure look. Each to their own.

“Have you ever wondered what Kevin McCallister is like as an adult?,” Macaulay tweeted, and from the looks of things, he's pretty much the exact same.

Google is essentially helping him out this time around, so he doesn't have to fend off any burglars all on his lonesome. There are a few differences for Kevin as an adult, for one, he actually has a need to shave this time.

He puts out his back while jumping on the bed, much like the rest of us. He's not a kid anymore, SOB.

Culkin has retrofitted his gaff to be a super smart home, so there's no ingenious traps needed. Google implies that when you have a voice-activated tech assistant, warding off thieves is pretty damn easy.

Have a look at Kevin McCallister in all his adult glory, we're busy exploding with wistful thoughts of the blissful 1990s:

Keep the change, ya filthy animals.


It's not news that Demi Lovato has had a ridiculously tough year, following her opioid overdose and subsequent trip to rehab in the past six months. 

After taking time away from the spotlight, the 26-year-old singer has finally returned to the 'gram for an important cause: to encourage her fans to vote in the US mid-term elections.

She posted this today from her polling place:

"I am so grateful to be home in time to vote! One vote can make a difference, so make sure your voice is heard!"

Lovato isn't the only celebrity to display their political standpoints and show their stance, but Demi's is all the more valuable for the struggle she is currently enduring following 90 days of sobriety.

The former child star was admitted to a rehabilitation facility on July 24 after suffering an opioid overdose in her Hollywood Hills mansion, currently on sale for €8.995 million.

She stayed in Beverley Hills hospital for almost two weeks before seeking in-patient treatment for her addiction, which she has suffered with throughout her life, alongside mental illness and eating disorders.

The star entered a treatment facility in 2010 for bipolar disorder, self-harm, addiction and bulimia, but relapsed after leaving the centre. Following this, she entered a sober living facility for a year, and celebrated six years of sobriety in March.

Her July overdose shocked fans and the famous alike. It followed the release of her semi-autobiographical single, Sober in June.

Her previous Instagram post is a selfie from July 23, the day before entering rehab, without a caption. She appears to have been dispelling fan fears that her life had ended as a result of the overdose:

The singer thanked her friends and family for their support during her troubles, and has been silent ever since. Today, she has used her platform to encourage a higher voter turnout.

Her mother, Dianna De La Garza,  has recently spoken out about her daughter's advancement: “Yes, she has 90 days and I couldn’t be more thankful or more proud of her because addiction being a disease, it’s work."

"She’s getting the help she needs. And that, in itself, encourages me about her future and about the future of our family.”

The 26-year-old singer was spotted by paparazzi out for the first time in Los Angeles last weekend, leading the public to believe that she has finished her stint at an addiction facility.

She went out to dinner with friend and designer Henry Levy, TMZ reported.

Her mother has been especially vocal about how grateful their family is that Demi is alive:

“I just feel like the reason she’s alive today is because of the millions of prayers that went up that day, when everybody found out what was happening,” she said.

“I don’t think she would be here if it hadn’t been for those prayers. I couldn’t have asked for a better team of people to save her life.”

Many families have disagreements, and the latest celeb fam to not see eye to eye is the Horans.

Multiple sources are claiming that Niall Horan isn't 'altogether happy' that his three-year-old nephew is making bank from his fame.

Theo, the toddler, has over 800,000 followers on Twitter thanks to his famous uncle, and for the past couple years, Theo's parents, Greg and Denise, have been pushing their child into the world of showbiz.

According to the Irish Mail on Sunday, Greg and Denise launched their son's career by having him open a local Lidl in Mullingar and then signed him up to Andrea Roche's agency as an 'influencer'.

The publication claims that Niall has started to distance himself from the family, with sources saying he's not happy about private photos being used to boost the family's public profile.

Last month, Greg tweeted: "Looking forward to [sic] working with some amazing brands in the next few months #InfluencerMarketing #GregHoran."

He was then spotted attending meetings in Manchester, while taking time out to look at Ferraris.



The cause of death of former child star Skye McCole Bartusiak has been revealed.

The actress was found dead at her home in Texas back in July. She was aged just 21.

At the time it was thought her death could be linked to a medical history of epileptic seizures, but a new report shows the cause of death as "an accidental mix of painkillers and muscle relaxants".

The results also showed evidence of difluroethane in her system – an inhalant found in household products which is used to get high by "huffing."

Skye's body was found by her boyfriend in the garage apartment next to her parents' Houston home. She was sitting up in bed, leading her mother to believe she may have had a seizure and choked.

The young woman was best known for her role alongside Mel Gibson in The Patriot in 2000, aged seven. Her mother described her as "a kind and really beautiful girl" who had "lived such an amazing life."
