Fan Art Fridays: Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth (Miam)

This morning I saw an article in my BlinkFeed reporting that a source said Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are planning to get married in Australia this summer.

Jaw. Drop.

OMJ this is major.

I am so freaking happy for them! I really hope they make it down the aisle together, and I look forward to seeing them all cute and lovey-dovey in photos all over the tabloids this summer.

I also can’t wait to see what Miley’s dress will look like!

Gallery Mondays: Jessica Calderwood’s ‘Pressed’

jessica calderwood pressed

Did you get to press your lips against someone’s fuzzy face for Valentine’s Day yesterday? I hope you did!

I saved this piece of art I found at R|R Gallery in the West Village of NYC called Pressed specifically for the day after Valentine’s Day because, well, you know, it’s so cheese. And squish. And warm. And fuzzy. 

The artwork was part of an exhibit called Flora and Flesh by Jessica Calderwood, which I got to see on it’s opening night, January 21st. The piece was created using enamel on metal. I’d love to have been there to watch Calderwood make these, because they look super difficult yet so fascinating.

I really like the anonymity of the artwork because it’s easy to just imagine yourself or a couple you know as the faces hidden in fuzzy pom poms. Since the arms that are visible look like newspaper print black and white, there’s no exclusion when it comes to race either.

It kind of reminds me of the face in a hole images, except way fancier.

Gallery Mondays: Kobra’s ‘The Kiss’

the kiss kobra

Valentine’s Day is coming, so it’s time to get a bit lovey-dovey.

This colorful mural by Eduardo Kobra might trigger a black and white memory of a real life event that happened in Times Square on V-J Day in 1945 commemorating our victory over Japan.

The photo, taken by Alfred Eisenstaedt, captures one of the most romantic kisses of all time between a soldier and a nurse. Swoon.

Kobra turned their black and white memory into color, and for that I’m sure they’ll be eternally grateful.

Looking for a cute Valentine’s Day photo to take with your honey? Imitate Kobra’s street art, which can be found in Chelsea NYC, specifically on West 25th Street and 10th Avenue.

Fan Art Fridays: Grace Helbig and Chester See (Grester)

In honor of #NaNoWriMo, every Fan Art Fridays post for November will have a fan fiction story to go along with it. Coincidentally, the cover of the fan fiction is almost the same as this week’s fan art!

YouTube fans cannot stop gushing over Grester. I figured that I would find some pretty good fan fiction about their relationship online, so I decided to go with this piece of fan art I found on Deviant Art.

The artwork was created by Super-Gia, and it’s a cartoon/anime version of a picture from a photo shoot Grace Helbig and Chester See did together. Chester’s cartoon looks so much like him! Grace sort of looks like a housewife that loves to drink wine, but I don’t hate it!

Head over to Whattpad to read this awesome fan fiction by croyden called The Secret Love which is about Grester hiding their relationship from their friends. At this rate, these two will get married and not tell us anything.

So, Are Beyoncé and Jay Z Actually Splitting Up?

the carters

Beyoncé and Jay Z’s relationship has been the subject of countless rumors over the past decade. From secret weddings to fabricated pregnancies, the Carters seem to brush all the he said, she said right off their shoulders.

The latest rumor? The couple is breaking up after their On the Run tour.

So, is Beyoncé  on the run from Jay Z or is it the other way around?

I think this is the stupidest rumor to date.

If this were true, I’m sure the tour would get cancelled. There’s no way two people that are going through a split could perform together on the same stage night after night and pretend that nothing is wrong.

Page Six claims that the two are seeing a marriage counselor.

“They are trying to figure out a way to split without divorcing … This is a huge concert tour and they’ve already gotten most of the money from the promoters up front,” a source told the column.

Okay.

I’m not buying it. And neither is MTV

So while everyone else is freaking out about this rumor, I’ll be here looking at the couple’s cute Instagram pics such as this one that Beyoncé  shared on July 21.

A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

Let’s see how long it takes before this one blows over.
