Morgan Freeman's Voice Will Be Used For GPS Navigation Because Dreams Really Do Come True

Literally, the best news ever.

We're not sure if it's the pitch, the cadence or the tone, but Morgan Freeman's voice is the perfect combination of soothing and commanding. For a while now, the Internet has wanted the Academy Award winner to narrate our day-to-day routines but knew that would be too much to ask for, so we settled on GPS navigation knowing that in the back of our minds, it would be a distant dream never to truly come true.

Until today.

It's just been announced that the Shawshank Redemption actor is teaming up with Google's free navigation app Waze, which means now Freeman can direct us to the nearest Starbucks, or Hookah Bar or how to get home in the morning from that thing that went past third base with that musician guy.

Now, Freeman isn't just lending his voice to Google. He will receive a nice check for it, but this is all promotion for his forthcoming film London Has Fallen (the sequel to Olympus Has Fallen) For the app, Freeman plays the Vice President and speaks to you, the driver as if you're the president. Kind of cool, right?

Either way, we're so here for Freeman helping to direct our steps, even if it's just to the new Thai place on 8th.

Kylie Jenner Doubles Down On Being Crowned A "Self Made" Billionaire

The premise of "self-made" and its interpretation when it comes to privileged celebrities has been a huge debate. When Kylie Jenner was named Forbes' youngest self-made billionaire, debates were raised due to her timeline in the limelight and her wealthy family. The 21-year-old defended her title, explaining how she doesn't fall into any ofter category.

"There’s really no other word to use other than self-made because that is the truth," she said in Q&A with Interview Magazine's German edition. "That is the category that I fall under," she started.

She acknowledged how her fan base equated to her success but refuted claims that she used her family's money to jump-start her wildly successful Kylie Cosmetics line.

"Although, I am a special case because before I started Kylie Cosmetics, I had a huge platform and lots of fans. I did not get money from my parents past the age of 15. I used 100 percent of my own money to start the company, not a dime in my bank account is inherited… and I am very proud of that."

Earlier this month (March 5) the mother-of-one officially surpassed Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest person to reach billionaire status, when Kylie Cosmetics hit a billion dollars in revenue.

Migos And Cardi B's Security Team Sidestep Charges For Met Gala Incident

After facing potential charges for a hasty autograph incident at last year's Met Gala, Cardi B and the Migos' security team were cleared of all charges.

"If you check my tag pics I take a lot of pics with fans," Cardi said to Pix 11 at the time. "Some people are not fans & sometimes I don't want no pics and I simply don't want people too close cause of [pregnant woman emoji] I don't know what are people's intentions sooo I Be careful. Why can't people respect that? [sic]"

Remember when Jay-Z said "I'm planking on a million" or "F**k hashtags and retweets?"

Lunch with Jay Z workin man workin man yea that’s me #WorkinWorkin

A post shared by HaHa Davis (@hahadavis) on Mar 21, 2019 at 2:50pm PDT

Perhaps Jay does have a secret Instagram account or a finsta after all. The rapper briefly had an Instagram account in 2015 and deleted it after posting a tribute to Michael Jackson on what would've been his 57th birthday. Meek Mill later explained that the 4:44 creator had an accurate viewpoint of social media.

Jay Z once told me this social media world was created for people that wouldn't even speak if they wasn't present .... For people that was scared to approach a male/female and hold a conversation if they wanted to a number or ask to go on a date! He also said you can't speak truth on here because this is the fake people world and they gone hate you for that. 

On the upside, many young creatives of color have made the platform work in their favor. Davis, who recently posted one of his hilarious in-thought videos with Will Smith, kicked off his comedy journey in 2013 on the now-defunct site, Vine. From there, he met Snoop Dogg who he cites as his mentor leading to his "Big Fella" signature flowing through Chance The Rapper's Grammy-winning project, Coloring Book.

Since then, life has been good to Davis with recent appearances at Comedy Central's Clusterfest 2018 and The BET Social Media Awards. As for Jay, life has remained lovely. On Wednesday (March 20), The Blueprint was one of 25 albums entered into the Library of Congress' National Recording Registry.
