BØRNS released his new album Blue Madonna today, and I absolutely love it.
It’s got that smooth, laid-back grooviness I’ve come to really enjoy about his music. The album features Lana del Rey on “God Save Our Young Blood” and the title track “Blue Madonna.”
My faves on the album are “Sweet Dreams”, “Iceberg”, “Second Night of Summer”, and “Tension (Interlude)”, the latter being my number one favorite track on Blue Madonna.
In celebration of Blue Madonna, I’ve decided to feature this fun piece of fan art of BØRNS that I found on Tumblr by Erin Young. It’s an oil on canvas painting that depicts the singer with pink hair wearing a floral top and sunglasses that suit him perfectly.

Continuing on with Hispanic celebs for National Hispanic Heritage Month, I decided to feature Mexican-American actress Karla Souza as Laurel Castillo on ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder for this week’s Fan Art Fridays.
Season 4 of the series premiered on Thursday night, and I’m not sure I’m going to be able to get though this season without having a series of small heart attacks.
Found on Tumblr, this piece of fan art by Laura Nickelle (Crowns of Reinvention) features a quote from the 8th episode of season 2, titled “Hi, I’m Philip” where Laurel is accused of being an entitled “MAP” (Mexican-American Princess).
“So I’m a princess just because I dared to disagree with you?” she snaps back, which is written on the fan art edit in clouds of gray and pink splatter.
Do you have a favorite Laurel Castillo quote? Let me know in the comments!

Today, Zendaya Coleman turned 21! I honestly didn’t realize she wasn’t yet legal before.
Zendaya is one of my fave multiracial celebrities. I love her eclectic sense of style. It matches her personality so well.
Speaking of style in this piece of fan art by Alina that I found in a collection on Tumblr, Zendaya wears a white blazer with a black lapel, a chambray top and some gold bling. So classy.
I also adore that shade of pink lipstick on her!
If you haven’t already seen Zendaya in Spiderman: Homecoming, this is the perfect opportunity to do so over the Labor Day holiday weekend!
Thursday was the first day of winter, so it’s only fitting that I feature every kid’s favorite winter-themed animated film, Frozen on this week’s Fan Art Fridays.
I found this piece of fan art by A-KA over on Tumblr. Elsa, Olaf and Anna are in complete selfie mode in this colored pencil work of art, wide eyed and smiling as if they were posing for a selfie.

P.S. Did you really think I was going to end this without asking the most important question of the season?
Leonardo DiCaprio turned 42 today, so I thought it would be fun to feature a piece of fan art I found of the actor in his younger years for this week’s Fan Art Fridays.
This digital fan art of 90s Leo was created by Kristin (kgpencil.tumblr.com) using SAI. It’s so realistic that I can feel his green eyes staring into my soul even more so than the original photo it was inspired by!

So first he cuts his hair and now he’s going solo. As in, signed-a-record-deal-with-Columbia-as-a solo-artist solo. Harry Styles is makin’ moves, yo.
I’m not a fan girl when it comes to One Direction or anything, but since Zayn left I really haven’t paid much attention to the band. Harry’s departure (if it’s for good) will probably cause me to end up forgetting about the band entirely. Zayn and Harry are literally the only ones that seem interesting to me.
I don’t understand why the band members can’t do their solo projects on the side and still stay a band (like Fergie and Will.i.am from Black Eyed Peas). It can’t be that hard!
Anyway, enjoy this fan art I found of Harry Styles on Tumblr. He appears to be performing a determined walk out with a fedora on his head in the monochrome watercolor. It doesn’t get more official than that.

Johnny Depp is the latest actor to portray none other than Donald
Dump Trump in a biopic/parody.
The actor’s role as Donald Trump on Funny or Die is based on the 2016 presidential candidate’s book The Art of the Deal. I couldn’t handle how accurately Johnny Depp portrayed Trump, from the hair to the voice, all the way down to the antics.
I honestly wonder if there’s anyone that can’t imitate Trump…
Anyway, this led to my decision to feature Johnny Depp for this week’s Fan Art Fridays. This one was created by Singhooi Lim who has also made fan art of other celebs like Jackie Chan and Michael Jackson.
Is it just me, or does Johnny’s hair not look as if there weren’t a strand out of place?

After watching the heart-wrenching season 5 finale of USA’s Suits this week, I just had to dedicate this week’s Fan Art Fridays to Mike Ross.
Those of you that saw the episode, titled “Faith,” will understand.
I think this pencil crayon drawing by The Soulful Artist on Tumblr does Mike Ross justice.

As many of you may have already heard, Taylor Swift went cray this week when she found out Ryan Adams is covering 1989.
I’m pretty damn sure she was doing exactly what the GIF is playing right now.

In honor of the premiere of the music video for “Beautiful Now” by Zedd ft. Jon Bellion, I present to you none other than Visionary Music Group’s most prized possession.
Jon Bellion has a very distinctive face. I like his face. I also like his voice.
