October Favorites: Obamas Moving to UES & Rihanna Drive

The cold wasted no time making an appearance at the end of October. Like, I know I was complaining that it was still summer during the first few days of fall, but jeez!

Anyway, the month of October 2017 had a mix of fun music and pop culture news coupled with a few terrible events. Monthly Favorites on The Whisper Box only focuses on the former, so let’s leave all the bad stuff behind.

Here are my favorites for the month of October!

Favorite News Articles

1. The Obamas might be moving to NYC’s Upper East Side. They say third time’s the charm, and this is the second report stating they may end up living in NYC…

2. Barbados is naming a street after Rihanna. I bet she’s gonna rev up her engine and cruise on down Rihanna Drive blasting “Drive” because, why not?

3. Balenciaga’s platform heel crocks. What is fashion anymore?

4. This woman checked her horse in at a Kentucky hotel. Was no one concerned that the horse might accidentally cause damages to the room?!

5. Lupita Nyong’o’s NYT piece on Harvey Weinstein. I’m glad spoke up about this, even if she was able to avoid this disgusting bastard’s advances. He got what he deserved 10 times over.

Favorite Music
1. “No Captain” by Lane 8 ft. POLIÇA. Something happened to my heart when I heard this song for the first time.

2. “Should I” by Phoebe Ryan. Loving the Motown vibe mixed with ’80s electropop on this track! Continue reading

April Favorites: #FyreFraud & Commuter Barbie

Now that all of the “It’s Gonna be May” and “May the 4th be with you” memes are over, it’s time to look back at April for some monthly favorites.

Let’s just say some very peculiar things happened in April 2017…

Shall we?

Favorite News Articles

1. #FyreFraud. Let the disaster that was Fyre Festival be a lesson to all the entrepreneurs of the world.

2. There’s a new Barbie in town, and she rides the NYC subway. I almost want to be 5 again so that I can play with this.

3. Apparently adults in Australia aren’t allowed to go to Legoland. Speaking of wanting to be 5 again…

4. You can now avoid annoying coworkers with a Google Chrome plugin. Beyond awkward moment when you get a phone call while your coworker is telling you the same sob story for the 50th time.

Favorite Music

1. “Saw You in a Dream” by Japanese House. I think she just went and plucked all of my heart strings to oblivion.

November Favorites: Pizza ID, ‘That’s So Raven 2’ Cast & Mike Falzone’s Wedding

nov-faves

November 2016, man.

Anyway, a lot of awesome stuff happened in pop culture during November 2016 in spite of other terrible things that may or may not be worrying us about the future. So let’s just forget about those and enjoy my faves for the month.

Favorite News Articles

1. This woman thought she could get into a bar using pizza as an ID. Tough luck.

2. That’s So Raven 2 cast details! So excited for this.

3. Apparently Ben Affleck’s son caught a cold from Prince George. Does a royal cold feel any different from a normal one?

4. Kanye West tried to work from his hospital bed. Rest is for the weak.

Favorite Music

1. “Stop Me” by Nick Murphy. I was having trouble understanding why the vocals sounded like Chet Faker and then I was like, mind blown.

September Favorites: Baseball Game Proposal, Wild Front’s “Rico” & ‘Suits’ S6 Finale

September 2016 will officially go down as the month of the worst celeb separations.

First it was Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Then Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber. And perhaps the worst was the recently wed Colleen Ballinger and Josh Evans.

My heart is a million pieces.

I still found a few things to smile about during the month of September. Let’s try to forget all this sad love nonsense and focus on the fun stuff in pop culture and entertainment from September 2016:

Favorite News Articles

1. This guy dropped the engagement ring in the abyss that is the baseball stadium stands while proposing on the Jumbotron. How awkward would that have been if it was never found!

2. Rihanna dressed in a furry red heart. Right after that romantic drama with Drake at the MTV VMAs…

3. Lady Gaga is performing at the 2017 Superbowl Halftime show! This is going to definitely be one to watch.

Favorite Music

1. “Rico” by Wild Front. If I had a car and a license I’d probably “drive all night” to this song. Cannot wait for WIld Front to release new music!

2. “Mieux Que Tout” by Paradis. Paradis’ album was so well waited for. They needs to come to NYC soon.

3. “Tough” by Goldroom. I’m demanding a re-release of West of the West. All of the songs need to be sung by Goldroom himself! What is this nonsense!

Favorite Celeb Instagrams

1. Victoria Beckham dancing in Times Square. It bothers me that I work so close to Times Square and I was not around for this.

June Favorites: Princess Charlotte, #OITNB Season 4 & “This Is What You Came For” Music Video

june faves

June was heartbreak month in Hollywood.

The worst two for me were Demi Lovato & Wilmer Valderrama, and Taylor Swift & Calvin Harris. The former really messed me up.

Then there was Zayn Malik & Gigi Hadid, but I don’t really think the fans for either of those two are ever too torn up about them being single…

On the plus side, I did discover some really awesome music in June.

Here are my faves in pop culture and entertainment for June 2016!

Favorite News Articles

1. Princess Charlotte’s debut. She looks just like her big brother and her daddy! And she’s got her mother’s charm 🙂

2. This grandma thanks Google in her search queries. Please give her the pleasure of visiting Google’s offices. I’m sure she’d make everyone’s day.

Favorite Music

1. “BOSS” by Disclosure. Oh, but I’m sure this track looks more than “good on paper.” Heck, I’d get it framed!
