I got some amazing news this week from Influenster about a new sponsored post!

No, it’s not the Kylie Jenner lip kits, but it’s just as exciting: I’m getting the chance to review Kylie Jenner’s Sinful Colors nail polish collection called Trend Matters!

In honor of this, I’m dedicating this week’s Fan Art Fridays to Kylie. Yashinss on Instagram drew her with a crown and extra volumized lashes, which I love.

I cannot wait to get my box full of her nail polish!

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Kylie Jenner at The Nice Guy Restaurant in L.A.

Kylie Jenner looks more and more like Kim Kardashian everyday with those lips and those cheekbones!

The 18-year-old was spotted with a friend outside The Nice Guy in Los Angeles wearing a long sleeved silk camouflage number by Versace and suede ankle wrap pumps.

I think Kylie is really brave to go out in such a versatile piece that can double as a long jacket. She’s got great legs, and she’s definitely not afraid to show them off.

Fan Art Fridays: The Kardashians by Mr. Brainwash

On season 11 episode 8 of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Mr. Brainwash got to paint Kris, Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall, and Kylie like one of his French girls.

Or all of his French girls?

This is a huge deal right now because the style of this painting takes after Renoir, an impressionist painter that people seem to hate. I don’t get why. Maybe I need to take an art history course or something, because I actually really like what I’ve seen from Renoir.

The Kardashian and Jenner ladies wore gorgeous Victorian clothing for the painting, complete with fancy hats and a beautiful landscape in the backdrop.

I’d so love Mr. Brainwash to paint me in the spring so I can hang it in my room!

Dissing the Jenners

kendall jenner Recently it seems like Hollywood can’t stop picking on the Jenners!

This past week, Kendall Jenner took to Twitter to let go of some steam, tweeting:

“Just wish things could be easier sometimes mann.”

Kurt Cobain’s daughter, Frances Bean, felt the need to address Kendall’s tweet, stating:

“I’d rather be a scumbag than a f–king idiot. Praise high IQ’s, good taste & awareness about the state of the world.”

Ouch!

But that wasn’t all. That tweet has been deleted from Frances’ Twitter, but a few others remain:

@KendallJenner oh shh. There are kids on earth abandoned & homeless who forcibly drink contaminated water because clean water isn’t accessible.

@KendallJenner oh ya, not to mention, CANCER, famine, poverty, draught, disease, natural disasters, Death. Fuck, Humans are so self involved.

I’d like to thank my parents for providing me with a high IQ & I’d like to thank my grams for encouraging me not to be a self absorbed idiot.

It is true that Kendall Jenner is better off than most 17 year-old girls in this world.

However, I don’t think Frances had the right to lash out on her like that. We all have bad days when we feel like the world is crashing down on us, privileged or not.

And Kendall used that argument to defend herself.

But Frances still wasn’t having it.

She continued the Twitter feud, tweeting:

@KendallJenner everyone’s problems are relative and I in now way meant to demean you’re issues but publicly complaining about how hard your

@KendallJenner life is, is completely self serving. It’s asking for attention. If you are feeling like shit talk to someone who you trust

@KendallJenner as opposed to fishing for sympathy from your followers. I don’t know you nor do I think ur a bad person.

@KendallJenner I believe that venting about ones problems via the Internet is a blatant cry for attention.We all have experienced pain

@KendallJenner i try to deal w/ pain in a manner that pertains to my real life not in a way where strangers throw me a pity party.

@KendallJenner To each their own though man. It’s not my life, live it in whatever manner you want to.

Now, here is where I agree with Frances. Too many people have gotten comfortable using social media as an online diary. Got a bad grade on a test? Post in on Facebook. Stuck in traffic? Complain about it on Twitter. Waiter messed up your order? Take a picture and put it on Instagram.

It may not be that you’re looking for pity, but that’s what it comes off as. People will see your complaints and either respond or ignore them.

What ever happened to talking it out with kith and kin?

I’m sure Kendall has a great support system amongst the Kardashian/Jenner family. She can surely vent to one of them.

No need to post on Twitter and fuel a war with Frances.

Hopefully Frances has calmed down about this, though.

Kendall isn’t the only Jenner getting heat. Her mother, Kris Jenner, is being criticized by Sharon Osbourne for “pimping out her children” to make kris jennermoney and become famous.

What?

I think “pimping” is the wrong word here. She helps her children, Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney with their clothing store, Dash, and Rob with his sock collection. Kendall and Kylie are models.

I don’t ever recall her selling them for sex.

Sharon goes on to say that Kris Jenner’s upcoming talk show is “going to bomb harder than Ricki Lake’s one season flop.” She can’t wait for the trainwreck apparently.

Kris fought back saying that Sharon is only clinging to her husband for fame and her show “The Talk” is boring.

I don’t know what’s going with these two but it doesn’t look pretty.

Hopefully these ladies figure things out before words become catfights.

The Very Viral “Harlem Shake”

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks, you’ve probably heard about the “Harlem Shake” videos that are taking over YouTube. They began in early February 2013, and I have to admit, I can’t get enough of them!

The “Harlem Shake” videos are usually performed with one person dancing to the fifteen second intro of Baauer’s track titled “Harlem Shake” as a group of people sit around him or her doing busy work such as texting, reading etc. When the beat drops, there’s a jump cut to the entire group dancing like crazies for another fifteen seconds. The crazy dancing ranges from plain old jumping around to flailing one’s body parts all over the place. The best videos include people wearing random costumes. It looks extremely fun, and practically anyone can do it.

As reported on USA Today, “According to Kevin Allocca, YouTube trends manager, Harlem Shake video uploads have skyrocketed in the last few days. He writes that as of Feb. 11, 12,000 Harlem Shake videos have been posted this month” About 4,000 “Harlem Shake” videos are uploaded daily.

The man behind the music, Baauer, an electronic musician from Brooklyn, is mind-blown by the success these videos are bringing to his single. “Harlem Shake” reached number 1 on the US iTunes chart and number two on iTunes in Australia and the UK.

Here are a few of my favorite “Harlem Shake” videos! (In no particular order)

1. Harlem Shake Ryan Seacrest, Kendall & Kylie Jenner Edition

This “Harlem Shake” video was filmed in the studio with Ryan Seacrest, the Jenner sisters Kendall and Kylie and some other people from the radio station. It starts off with a guy wearing a sweater that says “Rich Fashion Advisory” walking from behind where Kendall and Kylie are sitting while thrusting his hands in the air. When the beat drops, everyone goes wild and the funniest person in the video is the guy wearing what looks like a frog suit who’s bouncing a turkey up and down. Hilarious!

2. Harlem Shake (Radio Station Edition) | talkSPORT

This one starts off with a guy wearing a pink onesie and a motorcycle helmet bouncing around casually. When the beat drops, boy you’re in for a laugh! I can’t tell which is funnier: the guy in the bubble wrap, the guy with the scream mask and the teapot, or the guy with the fisherman hat who’s banging the table with God knows what in his hand!

3. Harlem Shake Onesie Parents

As soon as I saw the baby during the intro for this video I knew it would be hilarious. A woman in a pink robe and motorcycle helmet flails her arms around while standing behind the couch as a man plays with a baby. When the beat drops, things get seriously weird and funny. Some extra people appear in onesie pajamas to join the fun, but the two to keep your eyes on are the man in the zebra onesie and the woman in the red onesie PJs. After the 0:25 second mark, these two are the only ones left in the room and they seem to be having a plant fight. You have to see it for yourself to understand why I can hardly type as I describe this video!

4. Harlem Shake @ Facebook

Facebook goes against the norm in their version of the “Harlem Shake”. The intro features a guy wearing a yellow smiley face head dancing while another guy wearing a mariachi hat bicycles around him in circles. Once the beat drops an extremely large crowd of people from the Facebook offices appear and the funniest two to watch for are the person in the penguin costume and the guy lying face down on the pavement.

5. UGA Men’s Swim & Dive Harlem Shake

I don’t know how they managed to do it but they did! The UGA Men’s Swim team did the “Harlem Shake” underwater! To be frank, the fact that it looks awkward while trying to wiggle around in a pool makes this version amusing on its own. Add a fifteen second intro with a guy on a table wearing nothing but swim briefs and a mask and you’re in for a good laugh. The guy under the table when the beat drops will have you rolling on the floor laughing!

6. Harlem Shake (Grandma Edition)

The guy in the fifteen minute intro can’t even keep himself from laughing as he dances! He knows we won’t be able to contain ourselves when the beat drops! I’ll just let Jackthegamer02’s comment sum this one up for you: “The [grandma] on the right looks like she’s trying to swat a fly”!


7. The Harlem Shake v69 (foreveralone edition)

This last “Harlem Shake” video features one of my favorite YouTubers, Connor Manning, doing the shake forever alone style. He breaks all the rules, rebel that he is, by starting off the video with a fifteen second intro of him sitting on a couch sipping a drink. When the beat drops, he put on the most ridiculous face imaginable and sways across the screen all alone! It’s so awkward and fun! I love it!

Which “Harlem Shake” video is your favorite?
