May Favorites: Covfefe & #BowWowChallenge

Let’s not even get into how late this Monthly Favorites post is.

May 2017 was a month of laughs. Oh. Em. Gee. I don’t think I’ve had this much fun with pop culture news in a while. We got some awesome music videos during the month of May as well.

Let’s get to it:

Favorite News Articles

1. Donald Trump’s “Covfefe.” The tweet read round the world?

2. Jaden Smith’s hair as an accessory. When it comes to the MET Gala 2017, anything goes.

3. When a pineapple becomes modern art. Simply brilliant.

4. This couple went to prom dressed like the Obamas. YAAASSS.

Favorite Music

1. “Passionfruit” (A R I Z O N A Cover).  I might actually go as far to say I like this version better than Drake’s!

Gallery Mondays: Peace

While strolling past a school under construction in East Harlem, I saw this adorbs crochet peace sign made of yarn on the fence.

Even though crochet reminds me so much of winter, this peace sign screams spring with its florals and vibrant colors.

I’m not sure who created it―much less if it was just one person or a combined effort―but I think it’s such a nice touch amidst all the scaffolding, dumpsters and construction tools on the site.

See the floral peace sign for yourself on the corner of Lexington Ave and 104 Street!

Fan Art Fridays: Katy Perry

Katy Perry’s new album Witness dropped today, and although some think it’s pretty terrible, I kinda liked it. A little.

“Chained to the Rhythm,” one of the singles on the album, is an instant fave for me. I absolutely loved the music video for it as well. In terms of non-singles, “Tsunami” and “Déjà Vu” are really great. I do agree that Katy Perry tried to stray from her playful self a bit too much on this album.

Regardless, Teenage Dream still holds the spot as my favorite Katy Perry album.

Enjoy this intense digital fan art of Katy Perry that I found over on Instagram. It’s by by Indonesian graphic artist Muhammad Lutfi (@mdlutfi057). I can’t get over how captivating her blue eyes are in this piece!

Anyone else kind of miss Katy Perry’s dark hair days?

See more of Lutfi’s amazing fan art on Instagram, and give Witness a listen.

 

Gallery Mondays: “Harmony” by Tali Lennox #LaMerWaveWalk

Time to talk about making waves.

In conjunction with Project 0, 50 celebrities created ocean-inspired art for the La Mer Wave Walk installation in New York City just in time for World Oceans Day on June 8th. The list of celebrities, also known as “wave makers,” involved with the project includes Cara Delevingne, Rita Ora, and Tali Lennox. The majority of the installations are located in Manhattan with a few in Queens and Brooklyn.

After work a few days ago, I took a stroll down to the corner of West 27th and 7th Ave at FIT to see Tali Lennox’s wave, titled “Harmony.”

Lennox’s wave is inspired by a trip she took to upstate New York. She contrasts New York City’s chaos with upstate New York’s natural setting using what appear to be tall, brown fir trees painted on the inside and outside of the wave.

I hope I have some time to check out the rest of these installations before they disappear on June 21st to be auctioned off for charity. They’re such a great visual reminder of how important it is to conserve our natural environment.
