Zoom calls have become the new wave in 2020 after the world was put on lockdown due to the coronavirus. It’s created a few viral moments, specifically this week. New Yorker reporter Jeff Toobin was suspended after allegedly masturbating during a Zoom call. John Wall also became a trending topic following a recent Zoom interview on ESPN. Thankfully, John Wall’s Zoom moment wasn’t inappropriate than it was outright hilarious.
The Washington Wizards guard appeared as a guest on Monday Tailgate where he was discussing the future of his favorite NFL team, the Dallas Cowboys. Though many might get dressed up a little and provide the interviewers their undivided attention, John Wall was a bit preoccupied doing something else — playing Spades. Mind you, John Wall wasn’t completely distracted from what was going on in front of him, proving that he’s quite the multi-tasker.
The hosts didn’t even question what John Wall was doing which could be a testament to how good Wall is at juggling a game of cards and an interview simultaneously. However, he did seem to drift away a bit when he was asked about the NFC East.
If you’re wondering how good John Wall is at Spades, apparently, there are a few NBA Insiders who can vouch for him. Check out some of the best reactions to John Wall’s ESPN interview below.
Promising New Artist Taydem Shoesmith To Release Debut Single On New Year’s Eve
The singer-songwriter, actress and performer will release the electro-pop single “Are You Clapping?” just in time for New Year’s playlists.
With an affinity for music from a very young age, Taydem Shoesmith has been exploring songwriting for quite some time. Having multiple IMDB acting and composing credits to her name, Taydem is now diving into the pop music market with her debut single, “Are You Clapping?” The electro-pop/dance anthem, written by Shoesmith, comes from a very personal place; one she hopes will connect with listeners:
‘I think this is my first song that was written out of anger,” Taydem recalls. “I remember writing in my lyric book about how frustrated I was with the people around me and society in general. We think we have to act like the perfect person when we talk to people or go on dates. We’re kind of setting ourselves up for failure because we’re acting like someone we think they want to be with. I mean, it makes sense because in the past, relationships weren’t about love or connections. They were basically just business deals. I guess I just got to the point of wondering why I was doing this. Why were people telling me to talk more, smile more, flirt better, don’t be boring, etc, so often, when it came to relationships. Because not only was it exhausting to keep that facade up, I was also disappointed in myself for basically faking who I was, just to catch some guy’s attention. So through this song, I’m saying that I’m done putting up a show. Having confidence in the choices we make is very important, no matter if it’s in relationships, jobs, or life in general. And that is the message I hope people will take away from this song.”
From singer-songwriter to pop and alternative, Taydem’s music is a unique amalgamation of different genres and influences. Her musical inspirations include Michael Jackson, Rascal Flatts, Billie Holiday, Sabrina Carpenter, Camila Cabello and more. Her acting debut was in 2020, when she was cast for a role in the short film “In the Dark.” She has been cast as the lead in multiple films, and has created music for films as well; one of those being a theme song for a short series, “Blood Sisters.”

“I’ve experienced a very toxic relationship, and I did not realize it,” she said. The wake-up call was when he did not show up at my first show, nor was he supportive of my art, being jealous of my creativity and not being enthusiastic about my success. He was trying to discourage me every step of the way. I let him go and honestly… I felt miserable. I really thought I couldn’t live without him, but I discovered that it was actually quite the opposite. The doors started to open for me as soon as he was gone. Relationships are sometimes distractions, and they take us on a path that is not ours to take, and we lose focus of what our true desires are.”
She further added, “Breakups end up being blessings most of the time. ‘No Lover Lover’ is about me feeling like a weight has been lifted. [I am] feeling finally free, finding myself being totally fine on my own.”
