Now we take a look at what's trending at 5:30...

Most Jay-Z fans spent time on the 4th listening to his latest album - Magna Carta Holy Grail.

The record won't be released to the general public until next Tuesday, but one million Samsung Galaxy smartphone users could download a special app to get the album for free yesterday.

Samsung already paid $5 a piece for the advance copies. This is Jay-Z's 12th album.

Actor Alec Baldwin says he's done with twitter, and he could possibly be done with acting as well. This comes after his Twitter rant where he made a possible homophobic comment about a journalist.

Baldwin says he is never restarting his twitter account. He also says that he would love to quit acting--  adding that it would be the greatest thing in the world if he could find something else to do.

No 4th of July is complete without the National Hot Dog Eating Contest.

Joey Chestnut broke a record scarfing down 69 hot dogs in 10 minutes.

It's his 7th straight win, and this year he took home $10,000.

And representing for the ladies, the woman known as "the Black Widow" won again this year as well.

Sonya Thomas scarfed down 36 and 3/4 hot dogs in 10 minutes.

The woman who came in second only ate 36.

Thomas, who weighs just 100 pounds, has won the women's contest every year since it started in 2011.

The state of Washington is getting rid of state documents that feature "gender biased language."

The bill, which went into effect this week, has changed nearly 3500 state code sections to include both "he" and "she," as well as various other words.

For instance, "freshman" is now "first year student", "fisherman" is now "fisher", and "penmanship" is now "handwriting."

Other states that have done this are Illinois, Florida, and North Carolina, and about 9 other states are currently looking to make the same changes.

The conversation continues:  Jennie and John GO OFF on the gender biased language story!

John: "I don't see why it's a big deal."

Jennie: "Of course you don't!! I am woman hear me roar!"
