Daily Wrap of All Things for Dec. 31: Dwyane Wade, One Direction and 'Selfie'

By Samantha Ravenscroft,

Here’s our daily wrap for Tuesday Dec. 31:

Dwyane Wade had a child with another woman before proposing to Gabrielle Union. However, Union did know about the child before accepting Wade’s proposal. Wade and Union have been together since 2009 and Wade fathered the child while the two were on a break.

One Direction’s newest album Midnight Memories was the bestselling album of 2013 in the UK. The album wasn’t released until late November and sold over 680,000 copies in the span of 5 weeks. It beat out the No. 2 bestselling album Emeli Sande’s Our Version of Events by only 2,000 copies.

“Selfie” and “twerk” made the top of Michigan's Lake Superior State University 39th annual List of Words to be Banished from the New Year. Selfie was named as Oxford Dictionaries word of the year, but is right at the top of the list of words to be banished, having gotten the most votes this year. Other words that made the list were hashtag, Twittersphere, Mister Mom, T-Bone and on steroids.

Have a safe and happy New Year everyone!
