January Favorites: Bathroom Wedding & Jonas Brothers Reunion?

 

January 2018 was rough.

I feel as though a lot of the music that came out in January was very nostalgic, more so than usual. It’s as if everyone is longing to go back to a simpler time. Thankfully we can, just not for longer than the length of your favorite nostalgic tunes (and the stretch of your imagination).

Let’s take a look at some of the things in pop culture and entertainment that made January 2018 a little less rough:

Favorite News Articles

1. A New Jersey couple got married in a bathroom. Because the show wedding must go on.

2. There might be a Jonas Brothers reunion?! Be still my 13-year-old fangirling, beating heart.

3. CVS bans makeup brands from Photoshopping makeup ads. I love it when CVS takes initiative on things like this.

4. The A train is finally getting a revamp. Thank you, MTA, for finally rewarding this tri-borough train with a well deserved new look. I think some other trains are also getting upgraded…

5. RIP Rosie the Riveter. You will be missed, but never forgotten as a symbol for fierce, hard-working women.

Favorite Music

1. “Song for You” by Rhye. I am a new fan. Perfect track for Valentine’s Day this month.

2. “Stay Here” by Henry Green. He always knows how to break me down with those somber melodies, man.

3. “The Good Side” by Troye Sivan. Troye went all folk on us!

4. Cause for Concern, De Lux. Loving the old-school Beetles-esque vibes on this track.

5. “Tension (Interlude)” by BØRNSBlue Madonna as a whole is a great album, but this interlude definitely made it for me.

Favorite Celeb Instagrams

1. Viola Davis getting all done up for Jimmy Kimmel. I love her hair like this so much!

2. Lupita Nyong’o at the Black Panther premiere. SLAY.

4. JLo modeling some socks. Forget the socks, man. Look at that sweater and that hair!

Favorite TV Episodes

1. The Good Doctor, “Islands Pt. 2”That kiss was well waited for, and now I have to wait until they write a trip to see Lea into the show sometime in the (hopefully) near future.

2. grown-ish, “If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late.” At what point did her thumbs decide not to tell her brain that she was sending waayyyyy too many text messages?!

3. Alone Together, “Pilot”. I love how awkward Esther is. It’s so cute it’s painful.

4. Bob’s Burgers, “V is for Valentine-detta”. Gotta love the way this episode begins. Also, Louise’s makeover had me screaming throughout the whole thing.

Favorite YouTube Videos
1. Nick Jonas on BBC Radio 1’s Heart Rate Monitor. Teenage me remembers that Selena Gomez incident. So cringey. Ugh.

2. Bath With Liza. Just when you thought she couldn’t act anymore crazy…

3. Maddie Ziegler does a clothing line haul. If I were a bit younger, I’d totally look into buying some of these.

The month of lovey-dovey is here.

The new year fails to disappoint in the realm of pop culture news.

I can honestly say that January has been a mix of fun, witty and extremely emotional news topics. I didn’t think this elastic heart of mine would make it till the end… (see what I did there).

Without further ado, here are my favorites in pop culture for the month of January:

Favorite News Articles

1. Once upon a time, Queen Elizabeth drove King Abdullah to absolute madness. Too bad women aren’t supposed to drive in Syria! Rest in peace, King Abdullah.

2. This guy photobombs stock images, and it’s awesome. Check him out on Tumblr.

3. Interview with Maddie Ziegler, the face of Sia. This girl is just freaking amazeballs.

4. Will Ferrell hit a cheerleader in the face with basketball. The cruelty.

5. Bratz dolls get a makeover. So weird seeing them as normal dolls!

Favorite Music

1. “Peace of Mind” by Above and Beyond ft. Zoe Johnston. This is on my list of Above and Beyond faves for sure.

2. “Fourth of July” by Fall Out Boy. It’s a bit more rock than I’m used to, but I like it.

3. “Riot” by Mikky Ekko. Literally just found out he has an album out this month. Not too shabby.

4. “Boom Clap (Japanese Version)” by Charli XCX. When is the full version coming out?

Favorite YouTube Videos

3. Wreck It Wednesdays with Grav3yardgirl. So happy this is back!

4. Frozen bath with Thatcherjoe and Caspar Lee. That Winston Churchill question would have saved me.

Goodbye January, hello month of St. Valentine…
