March Favorites: Adele’s Beard, “Watch Me Do” & ‘The Catch’ Premiere

march faves

So March didn’t really go out like a lamb for me. I’d say it was more like a really sassy alpaca.

March was filled with a lot of great music, and sadly, a lot of season finales. I’m really looking forward to the summer when all my shows come back!

Here are my favorites in the world of pop culture for the month of March:

Favorite News Articles

1. Adele’s beard. The fact that she named it is killing me.

2. The royal family went skiing. The family portrait is super adorbs!

3. The Rock holds on to Zac Efron for dear life while on a motorcycle. “Hold me close my tiny dancer…”

Favorite Music

1. “Watch Me Do” by Meghan Trainor. Sassy. James Brown would be so proud.

2. “Do It, Try It” by M83. After hearing this song, I realized the Junk would probably end up being a very weird album, but it isn’t really too weird…

3. “All Out in the Open” by Mesita. It’s a little bit of Ed Sheeran mixed with indie and I love it!

4. “Where Would I Be” by Gwen Stefani. The hook in this song is everything.

Favorite Celeb Instagrams

1. Taylor Swift’s mom’s dog wants some food. It’s already been taken, buddy.

2. Selena Gomez in rollers. Still trying to figure out how her hair will look once those rollers get taken out.

3. Henry Cavill went unnoticed in Times Square. I would have been beyond pissed if I’d walked by and then found out later in the day that it was him!

Favorite TV Episodes

1. The Catch, “The Pilot.” That painting (“Alone Together” by Maria Kreyn) is literally their relationship.

2. Pretty Little Liars, “Hush…Hush, Sweet Liars.” So many things happened between the couples in this episode that I don’t even know how to begin to feel.

3. Limitless, “Bezgranichnyy.” I’m not sure if I like Brian with Lucy Church or Piper Baird more.

4. Bates Motel, “‘Til Death Do You Part.” I actually really think Norma and Alex are great for each other.

Favorite Youtube Videos

1. Mike Falzone standup. I’m totally seeing him when he comes to Astoria in May! Let’s see if the audience is anything like this one LOL.

2. James Corden was L.A.’s mayor for a day. Of course he would want to cut all the ribbons.

3. Tanya Burr talks in her sleep. Husband Jim Chapman tells all.

Enjoy all the April rain.

October Favorites: ZOLA, Lyft Zombies & Drake’s “Hotline Bling” Dancing

Oct Faves

There’s literally less than 8 weeks left of 2015. What. Even.

October brought a month filled with amazing videos and new music! This list of monthly faves would have been a lot longer if I had the time.

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

Favorite News Articles

1. The #ZOLA story. Is someone buying the film rights to this?

2. Lyft zombies. Can you imagine walking down the street and a zombie just randomly gets out of a car?!

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.

5. Mila Kunis would cover up a crime for her daughter. Mommy bond is strong.

6. Passengers on a delayed train sing Drake songs. Nothing brings NYC closer than a subway car.

Favorite Music

1. “New York City” by The Chainsmokers. New York City will be good to you if you steer clear of the players.

2. “All Over You” by LEISURE. I’ve probably played this song a gazillion times since it came out.

3. “Me & the Rhythm” by Selena Gomez. Instant favorite off her new album.

4. “Science Fiction” by Christine and the Queens. So happy she released her album in the U.S.!

5. “Dancing on Glass” by St. Lucia. This song has me so pumped for a new album from these guys.

6. “Fiesta (Remix)” by Bomba Esteréo ft. Will Smith. Wondering what the hell he’s doing on this track? Here’s your answer. 

Favorite Celeb Instagrams

1. Tanya Burr’s Glamour cover. She looks so different!

2. Meghan Camarena looks super cute in these shades! Work it gurl 😉

6. Hilary Duff’s canine PDA. Call the paparazzi.

Favorite TV Episodes

1. Castle, “The Nose.” I’d hate to be that keen a smeller.

2. The Mindy Project, “Stay at Home MILF.” Those stay at home mommy outfits were super cute.

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?

2. Extra gum commercial. Brb, bawling.

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

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

Happy November!

September has ended and the end of the year is nearing. Gosh, where did it all go?

This month brought a ton of fall season premieres and amazing music from some of my favorite artists. Here are my favorites in pop culture for September:

Favorite News Articles

3. Devious Maids gets renewed for season 4! It better! Pssshhh.

1. “Can’t Feel My Face” (Cover) by Karmin. I was waiting for something awesome to happen in this cover and it did, and it was hella good. (see what I did there?)

2. “FOOLS” by Troye Sivan. Words cannot explain how proud all of YouTube is of Troye Sivan.

3. “Jaded” by Disclosure. I think this is the first song I’ve heard with Disclosure’s vocals and me really likey.

4. “I Can’t Be Your Superman” by Skylar Spence. I think I listened to this song like 100 times already since it came out. And what do you mean you can’t be my superman, Ryan?

5. “Automatic” by Zhu feat. AlunaGeorge. This collab is too much beautifulness for me to handle…

Favorite Celeb Intagrams

4. Kisses and scruffiness. Is it just me or is Ryan Seacrest looking old?

5. Edy Ganem is pregnant! AHHHHHH! Looks like she won’t be on Devious Maids for a little while…

Favorite TV Episodes

1. The Mindy Project, “While I Was Sleeping.” I’m so happy this show didn’t die because of FOX. And OMJ engagement!

2. The Late Late Show with James Corden, Episode 77. Of course I’m going to be partial to this episode because I watched it live. And come on, BRADLEY COOPER DANCED. HOW COULD I NOT LOVE THIS?

Favorite YouTube Videos

1. Rhett’s people watching while in the park. I can’t tell which of these three stories is the funniest.

2. Grace Helbig does Chester See’s makeup. He looks like an Asian girl!

3. Ballroom dancing on NYC crosswalks. This is the cutest thing ever in theory, but I wouldn’t want to try this during rush hour.

Happy October!
