March Favorites: Adele’s Beard, “Watch Me Do” & ‘The Catch’ Premiere

march faves

So March didn’t really go out like a lamb for me. I’d say it was more like a really sassy alpaca.

March was filled with a lot of great music, and sadly, a lot of season finales. I’m really looking forward to the summer when all my shows come back!

Here are my favorites in the world of pop culture for the month of March:

Favorite News Articles

1. Adele’s beard. The fact that she named it is killing me.

2. The royal family went skiing. The family portrait is super adorbs!

3. The Rock holds on to Zac Efron for dear life while on a motorcycle. “Hold me close my tiny dancer…”

Favorite Music

1. “Watch Me Do” by Meghan Trainor. Sassy. James Brown would be so proud.

2. “Do It, Try It” by M83. After hearing this song, I realized the Junk would probably end up being a very weird album, but it isn’t really too weird…

3. “All Out in the Open” by Mesita. It’s a little bit of Ed Sheeran mixed with indie and I love it!

4. “Where Would I Be” by Gwen Stefani. The hook in this song is everything.

Favorite Celeb Instagrams

1. Taylor Swift’s mom’s dog wants some food. It’s already been taken, buddy.

2. Selena Gomez in rollers. Still trying to figure out how her hair will look once those rollers get taken out.

3. Henry Cavill went unnoticed in Times Square. I would have been beyond pissed if I’d walked by and then found out later in the day that it was him!

Favorite TV Episodes

1. The Catch, “The Pilot.” That painting (“Alone Together” by Maria Kreyn) is literally their relationship.

2. Pretty Little Liars, “Hush…Hush, Sweet Liars.” So many things happened between the couples in this episode that I don’t even know how to begin to feel.

3. Limitless, “Bezgranichnyy.” I’m not sure if I like Brian with Lucy Church or Piper Baird more.

4. Bates Motel, “‘Til Death Do You Part.” I actually really think Norma and Alex are great for each other.

Favorite Youtube Videos

1. Mike Falzone standup. I’m totally seeing him when he comes to Astoria in May! Let’s see if the audience is anything like this one LOL.

2. James Corden was L.A.’s mayor for a day. Of course he would want to cut all the ribbons.

3. Tanya Burr talks in her sleep. Husband Jim Chapman tells all.

Enjoy all the April rain.

Fan Art Fridays: Lionel Richie

Lionel Richie was in the news this week because he’s become the latest of a large group of musicians that want to collaborate with the lovely Adele.

Get in line, buddy.

Apparently, when he first found out the name of Adele’s single “Hello,” he thought it was a cover of his original 1983 hit of the same name.

It’s safe to bet that Lionel Richie and Adele are probably going to be coming soon to your ears. On the same track. Together.

In honor of this news, I found this really fun cartoon version of Lionel Richie. It’s by an artist that goes by the name Menekse Cam online, and she’s got tons more where this one came from.

Also, am the only one that goes all out ROTFL when they see one of these shirts?

Fan Art Fridays: Welcome to Instagram, Adele

Last night I got a notification on my phone saying that Adele had joined Instagram. I immediately unlocked my phone to see her first photos.

The singer’s very first Instagram pic is of her gorgeous face with the caption, “25 out November 20th”.

25 out November 20th

The amount of excitement that ensued in my bedroom at 11PM is unspeakable. I almost woke my aunt up.

As a warm welcome to Adele for her arrival on Instagram, I’ve decided to dedicate this week’s Fan Art Fridays to her. I found this piece of fan art on Photobucket. It’s by artist Sarah Badr.

I can almost hear her singing to me through this artwork. Needless to say, I cannot wait until November 20th! It’s been too long since her last album, 21, so my body is most definitely ready.

View the original fan art here, and enjoy the music video for her new single “Hello”!

August Favorites: Wee Blind Girl, Adele’s Upcoming Album & “Wildest Dreams” Music Video

August Faves

August 2015 will go down in history as the month of the heart-wrenching cliffhanger season finales.

Between the Suits, Pretty Little Liars, and Devious Maids season finales, I can’t tell who won. Did all the screenwriters of the world band together to plan this?!

Anyway, no podcast for this month (sorry, I was too busy adulting), but here’s a list of my August favorites:

Favorite News Articles

1.  Autocorrect gives a 21-year-old a “Wee Blind Girl” birthday cake. Oops?

2. Adele’s next album is coming soon! GAH so excited! My ears are ready!

3. Snake people. What even…

Favorite Music

1. “I Give It” by Night Beds. I think I’ve listened to this song (and the majority of the other songs on Ivywild) like a million times this month.

2. “Slumlord” by Neon Indian. This song is totally making me want to go see him live when he comes to NYC in October.

3. “Never Be” by Meg Mac. Here ye, here ye, we have found the Australian Adele.

4. “Gimmie Love” by Carly Rae Jepsen. Who would have thought that the sweet innocent “Call Me Maybe” girl would be singing songs like this a few years later?

5. “In The Night” by The Weeknd. I’m really loving his new Micheal Jackson-esque style.

Favorite Celeb Instagrams

1. Selena Gomez snoozing during the Wonder Magazine shoot.

4. Liam Hemsworth’s first Instagram happens to be with Miss Piggy. This is definitely a major step up from Kermit the frog!

Favorite TV Episodes

1. Suits, “Faith.” EVERYONE IS RESIGNING AND OMJ MIKE. CANNOT. GO. TO. PRISON.

2. Pretty Little Liars, “Game Over, Charles.” Um, who the heck did Alison marry after the 5 year jump?

3. Devious Maids, “Anatomy of a Murder.” So like, can everyone not die next season?

Favorite YouTube Videos

1. Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” music video was everything I’ve ever hoped for and more. Also, can I have that yellow dress?

2. Apparently everyone in France hates Marcus. Poor guy.

3. Troye Sivan’s WILD is going to be freaking amazing. Cannot. Wait.
