Fan Art Fridays: Happy Belated Birthday, Justin Bieber

justin bieber fan art

When Justin Bieber’s birthday rolls around on March 1st, I’m reminded of how old I’m getting and how much time I have left to plan some sort of event for myself in May.

He celebrated his birthday a-la-Frozen in a stalactite cave with some of his buddies, posing for some Instagram shots along the way. He looks quite sad/annoyed in this pic though:

And then he went all “home video” style with a time stamp on this one:

This is a little kid smile

I totally get it, man. We’re getting old.

Anyway, I found this lovely piece of fan art by jaysonframe on Instagram, featuring the Biebs with glassy light brown eyes. Justin Bieber’s hair disappears into this sketch, which is totally cool with me, because I’m actually getting kind of annoyed with the bleach blonde…

Enjoy the original fan art here.

 

Top 5 Performances at the 58th #Grammys

grammys

I had way too much fun watching the 58th Grammys on Monday night!

From the fashion to the presenter monologues, the show was definitely one to watch. LL Cool J hosted with his LL broach on the lapel of his suit jacket and several pieces of blindingly sparkling rings on his fingers.

Also, is it just me, or did everyone decide to show up with a haircut?! Taylor Swift went à la Anna Wintour, Sam Smith looked so much older with a closer shave, and Adele looked stunning with a shorter ‘do. Even the Lincoln Navigator commercial that showed during the Grammys featured Matthew McConaughey with shorter hair. WHAT IS THIS?!

Anyway, here were the performances that got me off the couch and on my feet throughout the evening.

1. Lionel Richie Tribute Medley, John Legend, Demi Lovato, Tyrese and others

You know you were alive before the new millenium when you get uber excited about hearing “Hello” and “Brick House.” I also really loved the suit Demi Lovato wore for her portion of the performance.

2. “I Can’t Feel My Face” and “In the Night” by The Weeknd

Gotta love seeing this crazy haired man perform!

3. “Love Yourself” and “Where Are U Now” by Justin Bieber 

Loved the acoustic version of “Love Yourself.” Not sure how I feel about that cheetah jacket on the Biebs, though.

4. David Bowie Tribute Medley, Lady Gaga

Can we just stop for a second to appreciate how much effort she put into the aesthetics of this performance?! They couldn’t have picked a better person to do this tribute. Also, that robot keyboard is too cool.

5. “El Taxi” by Pitbull

Two words: SOFIA VERGARA. Boy, does Pitbull know how to close a show!

Here are my favorite things in pop culture for the month of October:

3. Air France workers rip the shirts off their backs in protest. Dramatic much?

4. This adorbs little pug wanted to ride the Vespa. They just wouldn’t let him on, yo.

Favorite Music

3. How to Get Away with Murder, “Meet Bonnie.” Why did no one take the briefcase full of money and go celebrate?

Favorite YouTube Videos

1. Drake’s “Hotline Bling” dancing. How could they let him go out there without real choreography?

3. The 1975’s “Love Me” music video. My head hurts.

4. Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” dance video. These girls are phenomenal!

Happy November!

Fan Art Fridays: Happy Belated Birthday, Selena Gomez!

Selena Gomez turned turned 23 this week! Woohoo!

Apparently, on her birthday (July 22nd), Justin Bieber supposedly sang her a “Happy Birthday” song over FaceTime, complete with a rose and all (not sure which version of the birthday song, but I hope it was PG).

Some stars have a habit of giving the fans a gift around their birthday as well, and Selena is no exception. She announced that her upcoming album Revival will be released on October 9th!

Are you excited or what?!

In celebration of these events, I’ve dedicated this weeks Fan Art Fridays to her. This piece of fan art was found on Instagram, and it was done by self-taught artist @aldohatta.

Happy belated birthday, Selena Gomez!

Cue the music.

#FashionRocks 2014 Highlights

New York Fashion week brought a night of hot models, amazing performances and bootyliciousness to the Fashion Rocks event at Barclay’s Center on Tuesday.

The show was hosted by Ryan Seacrest, who looked absolutely dapper in a suit and blue bow tie.

The evening began with the very anti-climatic entrance of Usher, introduced by a pre-taped motorcycle ride through NYC. He proceeded to perform “She Came to Give It to You” with some help from Jourdan Dunn who looked stunning!

The rest of the performances failed to disappoint. Here are some of the night’s highlights:

1. Pitbull’s Gatsby-esque performance of “Fireball.” It’s always a party with Pitbull.

2. When Ryan Seacrest stood with a group of gorgeous models.

3. Enrique Iglesias’ performance with Sean Paul.

4. JLo’s “Booty.” WOW.

5. When JLo started giving Nicki Minaj the look during her “Anaconda” performance. #BootyWars

6. When Justin Bieber stripped down to his underwear and the audience booed him.

7. Rita Ora grabbing a male model’s butt. And then wished she could follow him off stage.

8. Latrice Royale. ‘Nuff said.

What did you think of all the craziness that happened during the show?

“Bieber Hair” Helps Fight Against Skin Cancer

Apparently Justin Bieber is doing some good deeds these days?

It turns out that Bieber’s infamous haircut, one that he no longer sports these days, helps protect against skin cancer.

Researchers Bernard Cohen and Crystal Agi of Johns Hopkins University conducted the study in which they concluded that the hairdo’s bangs protect the forehead, preventing melanoma.

Interestingly, the experiment was originally called “The Justin Bieber Effect.” Ever since Bieber’s numerous misdemeanors, they decided to change the project name to “The Big Bang Theory: Adolescent Hairstyles and Sun Protection.”

Cohen and Agi are not advocates of the 20-year-old Canadian superstar’s former ‘do. They simply wanted to find a way to begin a discussion about skin cancer among young people.

“It can be hard to talk to teens about the importance of sun protection because they often think of cancer as something that happens long down the road, but I see 12-year-olds who develop age spots after one bad sunburn,” Cohen told Yahoo!

I’m wondering if the Biebs is at risk now that he’s moved away from that circa 2009 look?

Still protected against those UV rays though, right?
