Fan Art Fridays: Lady Gaga

lady gaga fan art

Just a little over 48 hours from now, Lady Gaga will take the stage at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas for the Super Bowl LI halftime show.

Lady Gaga revved up her Little Monsters with some saucy dance moves and a face mask over on Instagram yesterday.

I’m really hoping her tracklist doesn’t only include songs from Joanne, because I want to relive my high school days with some of her hits from The Fame and Born This Way.

In anticipation of Lady Gaga’s halftime show performance, I’ve decided to feature this amazing watercolor painting by Russian artist Evgenie. Inspired by the album cover for Joanne, this fan art reminds me of Francesco Primaticcio’s Double Head.

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Lady Gaga @ Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2016

lady-gaga-victorias-secret-fashion-show-2016-rose-dress

Guys, I’m totally drooling over that black gown Lady Gaga wore with rose print at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show this year.

It has this sort of edgy elegance to it that I just love. I don’t have too many long dresses in my closet, but this is something I’d totally buy if I came across it in a store.

Below are two dresses inspired by the look!

Dress:

1. Unique Vintage, $72.00

2. Dezzal, $114.99

Gallery Mondays: Celeb Cats

1008161454_hdr

My parents have just moved out to Long Island, so this weekend when I went to visit them I tagged along for some furniture shopping.

At Bob’s Furniture in Farmingdale, I saw these hilarious celebrity inspired cat paintings on a children’s bed. One cat is Lady Gaga with the blond bow hair, another is Pharrell with the infamous brown hat and I believe the last one on the left is Miley Cyrus. I didn’t want to touch the paintings (since I wasn’t buying them) to see the Miley one better but I’m 99.9% sure it is supposed to be the cat version of her.

I’m actually tempted to get the Lady Gaga one but it doesn’t match my purple and gray room that I’m decorating here.

Pity.

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.

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!

January Favorites: RIP David Bowie, Leo DiCaprio’s Flinch & Liley Reunited

jan faves

January 2016 was a roller coaster. Between celebrity deaths, award shows, and couples reuniting, I’m amazed I was able to keep up!

My list of news articles was way too long for this favorites post, so I selected the best few to share with you guys. I also had a great time picking music this month, and all of my favorite shows are slowly coming back from their hiatus, which means more episode favorites!

Here are my favorites for the month of January.

Favorite News Articles

1. RIP David Bowie. He and Iman are such a photogenic interracial couple. My heart goes out to her.

2. Leo DiCaprio went viral at the Golden Globes after flinching when Lady Gaga walked by him. Because, look at those side hoop hips, though.

3. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are engaged. Again. And they better stay that way.

4. Emily Blunt is pregnant! Wooohoo! Hazel is getting a sibling to play with!

Favorite Music

1. “All That’s Left” by Manila Killa ft. Joni Fatora. This song can take me “round and round on this carousel” any day.

2. “House on Fire” by Sia. Only Sia can make what would usually seem like something masochistic sound romantic, and I love it.

3. “All I See” by Draper ft. Laura Brehm. Such a cute song right in time for Valentine’s Day.

4. “Home” by St. Lucia. “You can tell them you’re going home.”

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Lady Gaga’s 73rd Golden Globes Look

Wardrobe Wednesdays- Lady Gaga 73rd Golden Globes

You can’t blame Leonardo DiCaprio for flinching like that at the 73rd Golden Globes on Sunday after seeing Lady Gaga’s ginormous hourglass hips sashay passed him.

I mean, come on—they look like 18th century side hoops turned pillow cushions!

Regardless, Lady Gaga looked stunningly vintage in a black off-the-shoulder dress featuring a sweetheart neckline and train. The dress was custom made for the Lady by Versace.

Her Neil Lane jewels and platinum blonde hair completed the Marilyn Monroe look. The cuff bracelets she wore have a very classy rocker-punk vibe to them.

I love the way she mixed vintage and modern to make this look her own. Below are some items similar to what she wore that Sunday night, and should you dare to recreate the hourglass hips, I suggest an actual pair of side hoops for the occasion.

Dress:

1. DresSale, $127.99

2. ASOS, $157.38

Earrings:

3. Bluefly, $150.00

4. Ross-Simons, $131.25 (on sale until 1/17/16; reg. $175.00)

Bracelets:

5. Gordon’s Jewlers, $237.15 (on sale; reg. $279.00)

6. Betteridge, $12,000.00
