Troye Sivan’s WILD (Blue Neighborhood Part 1/3) is Painstakingly Beautiful

Before Taylor Swift tweeted about Troye Sivan the other day, I had never heard of him. What got my interested was Taylor wrote #EPgoals. Done deal for me. If Taylor Swift is endorsing this guy, somethings got to be right. So, I took a few days, and didn’t look Troye up until this morning. I watched the video for WILD and was completely blown away. The song is beautiful. Troye’s voice is refreshing, #voicegoals. And the video is a depiction of a reality that I, as a gay man, can finally relate to.

The video matched with the song is nothing new, story wise. Starts off with two kids becoming best friends and ends with their friendship becoming a relationship as they grow older, together. Seems fairly standard. What makes the video so appealing to me is that the two friends are males. The video brought out so many emotions for me because that little boy in the video represented me at that age.

In second grade,  I remember loving to play with my best friend Richard Skelton at recess. We would sit together during class and during lunch, we would share snacks. I remember thinking to myself, I want to hug Richard and hold his hand because I saw people do it on TV and some boys at school would hold girl’s hands and hug them, and vice versa. Though, I had those thoughts, I clearly remember talking myself out of the hug/hand holding situation because I had never witnessed two males interacting like that. I knew it was a different action and, at the time, I knew that I should keep my feelings to myself. Richard and I remained friends until he switched schools in fifth grade. I actually don’t remember being sad about it, I’m a stone cold bitch.

The importance of a music video like this, no matter how big or small the impact, is immeasurable. To see something that you can fully relate to in anyway gives you this overwhelming sensation of being connected.

Now, I usually try to give all the info about an artist/song then throw in a funny little ditty, but I can’t be as emotionally attached to this work and then critique it. So, uh…fart-bubble.


Lady Gaga “CAKE”


Lady Gaga has cake in her crack and she is rockin’ that brunette hair. Mulitasking.

Photographer, Terry Richardson has been on tour with Gaga to document the superstar through photos once again. Gaga has just posted the photo above via her social networks with the caption, “The real CAKE isn’t HAVING what you want, It’s DOING what you want.'”

I like the photo, she’s serving realness. Gag’s is being silly and wasted a cake. Hell, I wouldn’t have wasted a cake, I would have eaten it in one sitting, no lie. Sometimes when I crave cake, I go to the market, but a cake that specifically has “Happy Birthday” written in icing and go to town on that thing. Again, no lie.


Britney Spears’ Eyebrows Are A Sin

I am relieved to see that I am not alone in my disgruntled frustration of Britney Spears’ physical apperance 98% of the time. Her ratty weaves, unflattering dresses and the biggest culprit of all, her horrendous makeup. Now, it is rumored that Britney loves the smokey eye when it comes to her makeup, but lets be real here, her smokey eyes look like Uncle Fester and her lack of eyebrows doesn’t make her any less Fester-ish.

Stans have feverishly tweeted Billy B., makeup artist, with their concerns and disdain for the Pop Princesses’ raccoon eyed makeup and flesh colored eyebrows.  Billy B. responded to the tweets saying that the fans obsession with Britney’s eyebrows makes them look “cray cray.”

No. Billy, no. We are not here for that. When a celebrity looks like shit, they look like shit. It’s a part of their job to look flawless and make us hate ourselves. It’s part of the allure. Billy B. must be doing Brit Brit’s makeup because he got all types of sassy and the world needs to side eye this guy.

Here is the link to the blog post. The comments and photos are gems.

“‘Seems the old Christina has returned.'”

You know, the video doesn’t look too bad. The song is a grower, not a shower and I can already see myself closing all the windows in my house and singing this song acapella while recording myself on my phone thinking I sound better than Xtina. Keyword: thinking.

My only qualm about the preview is that Xtina is wearing a big ass white t-shirt, again. I hate that. It’s not cute and it makes you look big, like, Lane Gyant big.

Gaga bought the single ya’ll. You might need to take your sunglasses off though because there is slight shade in the tweet Gaga sent out. Don’t deny it, there is.
