February Favorites: Kanye West’s Super Bowl Face, Lady Gaga’s Engagement & #TheDress

February Faves

February was short, but it most definitely wasn’t short on entertainment and pop culture news. This month had the some amazing TV episodes and music, making me extremely excited about what’s to come in later on this year!

Here are my favorite things in pop culture and entertainment for the month of February:

Favorite News Articles

1. Kanye Super Bowl face. Is this his “I’m annoyed” or his “I’m pissed” face?

2. Lady Gaga is engaged! To all the men who feel pressure to buy a ring just as amazing as the one Taylor Kinney got for Lady Gaga, well…I don’t know what to tell you…

3. #TheDress. How did this even become a thing? And, more importantly, how can anyone be seeing white in this dress?!

4. Selena Gomez tried to pronounce Zedd’s last name. Priceless.

5. #Mugabefalls. This is so messed up but it’s hilarious!

Favorite Music

1. “I’m a Ruin” by Marina and the Diamonds. I am ready to devour FROOT. So ready. HURRY UP MARCH 16th!

2. “The Line” by Seoul. I expect to see the music video for this soon, thank you.

3. “I Want You To Know” by Zedd feat. Selena Gomez. They’re adorbs and so is this song.

4. “Nothing But a Heartbeat” by Say Lou Lou. Those “oooh ahhs” in the beginning get me every time.

5. “Undiscovered” by Laura Welsh. The Fifty Shades of Grey Soundtrack is spectacular, and this song is no exception.

6. “One Last Night” by Vaults. Another amazing song off the Fifty Shades of Grey Soundtrack. The violins. The emotion. My heart.

7. “What Kind of Man” by Florence + the Machine. What kind of man? A very masochistic one, Florence. Love the song, but the video is too much to handle. The concept was very well thought out, though.

Favorite Celeb Instagrams

1. JLo and Chris Pine at the Oscars. My gosh, that dress is freaking gorgeous!

2. Logan Paul Hollywood. Kim Jong Un just had to photobomb this one.

Favorite TV Episodes

1. Castle, “The Wrong Stuff”. This episode stars Jane By Design‘s Ben (Jane’s older brother, played by David Clayton Rogers) and he’s uber serious on Castle, which was both interesting to see and hard to get adjusted to.

2. New Girl, “Spiderhunt”. I feel you on that spider fear, Schmidt. And Nick with Cece?! No. NONO.

3. Pretty Little Liars, “Bloody Hell”. How could Ezra just let Aria run free to kiss other guys? Like, excuse me, she’s yours! Stahp this madness!

4. The Mindy Project, “No More Mr. Noishe Guy”. The water break in the wall foreshadowed this pregnancy and it was a brilliant. Watching this unfold is going to be mind blowing.

Favorite YouTube Videos

1. Jimmy Fallon’s lip sync battle featuring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart. That Beyoncé number from Will Ferrell was everything.

2. Colleen B. and Ricky Dillon play Cards Against Humanity. The next Happy Meal toy should not be decided upon by Ricky Dillon. Just sayin’.

3. PJ’s firsts. Urglegrew. URGLEGREW.

Goodbye February. Hello, March. Don’t be too much of a lion…

Paras Pumpkins: Because Carving is So Old School

paras pumpkins

When it comes to pumpkins, there’s a way to decorate a pumpkin and there’s a way to DECORATE a pumpkin. Jeanette Paras of Paras Pumpkins is known for the latter.

My darlings, this woman has put our pumpkin carving to shame.

Instead of carving a face into a little store bought pumpkin, Paras paints the faces of famous people onto ginormous pumpkins, some weighing over 350 lb.

Yes, you read correctly. Three hundred and fifty pound pumpkins.

The faces of Kim Jong Un, Lady Gaga, Steve Jobs, Kanye West, Miley Cyrus and even Betty White have been marvelously pumpkin-ized by Jeanette Paras.

Enjoy some of her creations below!

Kim and Kanye Vogue Cover Spoofs

2014-03-25_09-23-43-1-1

After Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s Vogue cover was released on March 21st, the internet went crazy.

Between comments about how Kimye ruined Vogue and the celebrity spoofs, it seems like everyone and their mother knew about the couple’s coverexcept Kourtney Kardashian.

“I haven’t seen any reaction — I’ve literally been unpacking,” she said on GMA when asked about the internet uproar. “I’m the last to hear anything.”

While Kourtney Kardashian was living under a rock, Seth Rogen, James Franco, Miss Piggy, Kermit the Frog, Al Roker and Willie Geist decided to have a little fun parodying the couple’s Vogue cover.

Seth Rogen and James Franco:

Al Roker and Willie Geist:

I don’t know about you, but I think Al Roker and Willie Geist take the cake for this one!

Le Divorce: Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries

They’re divorced. Finally.

Image

It only took, what, almost two years, right?

No big deal.

The beautiful ceremony that took place on August 20th, 2011 wasn’t that long ago, I suppose.

Yesterday, April 19th, 2013, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries settled their divorce. And Kris got nothing from it. Poor guy was scammed into a reality TV marriage with no compensation due to the prenup he signed when they got married. Boo hoo.

As Hollyscoop put it, “Somewhere out there Kris Jenner is sitting in a plastic surgeon’s office and already booking the post-divorce tabloid mag “Tell All.””

I don’t doubt that statement for a second!

I worry about things like this. If the celebrities we look up to can’t even get the whole marriage thing right, where’s the hope for the rest of us?!

I’m not saying that all relationships are meant to last forever. I’m not saying that at all, actually. What I am saying is that two people are supposed to realize that they’re not meant to be together as a couple long term before they get married. Not after.

The “72 day marriage” joke will never get old though. I promise you. That joke will haunt her for the rest of her life!

So now Kim is both divorced and with child. Let’s see what happens with Mr. Kanye West in the months to follow.

Two Most Watched Baby Bumps of 2013

Come summer, the world will be anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Duchess of Cambridge and Kim Kardashian’s baby. Regardless of which one you may perceive to be more special, these two infants will be getting loads of attention from the moment they come out of the wombs of Kate Middleton and Kim Kardashian.

Both babies are due in July, and British bookmakers give the odds of 50/1 that they might even be born on the same day. Yes, I’m sure anyone would be stoked to find out that their baby might be born on the same day as the Duchess of Cambridge’s, but this would put Kim at a disadvantage. Baby Kardashian would be robbed of all the publicity. After all, Kanye West, the father of Kim’s baby, is most definitely not His Royal Highness. If the babies are born within a two week gap of one another, publicity for both newborns won’t be a problem.

UK celebrity psychic Jayne Wallace predicts that Kim will have a baby boy. Kanye really wants a boy, so this prediction is great news for him. For Kim? Not so much. Keep in mind, though, that these are just predictions. The royal couple plan to keep the baby’s gender a secret, so we won’t know anything until he or she is born.

Pregnancy is taking its toll on the Duchess. She was hospitalized in December for Hyperemesis Gravidarum, also known as an extreme case of morning sickness. She was released soon enough to appear at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards in London on December 16. There she showed off her lovely baby bump and presented two awards. Kate is expected to appear for the second time since the world learned of her pregnancy on February 19 at the women’s rehabilitation facility Hope House. She is a patron to the facility’s Action on Addiction Program. During her visit, the Duchess will meet with clients and staff.

Although Kim Kardashian doesn’t seem to be having any complications with her pregnancy, rumors are spreading about her ending up a single mom in the future. Kanye recently went to Abu Dhabi for a concert and told Kim not to go with him because of safety issues. It is possible that Kanye just wants some time away from his baby momma.

Both women look absolutely stunning while showing off their baby bumps!

Any guesses for what names the couples are thinking about for their newest additions to their families?
