Pop Videos Analyzed: Britney Spears’ Everytime Edition

everytime

I’d like to think Britney Spears’ greatest accomplishments were 1) the creation of her Everytime music video and 2) leaving the Cheesecake Factory without paying. I don’t think you guys would enjoy the breakdown of her dine-and-dash experience at America’s favourite chain restaurant, so I decided to break down one of the most puzzling pop videos of all time.

That being said, it’s time to dissect the completely illogical and equally magical video released in 2004 (post Justin’s Cry Me a River). No one does the de-glamorization of the lonely pop lifestyle quite like Britney. So, put on your baseball cap and stilettos because it’s time to psycho-analyze, Everytime. read more…

ICYMI: Songza Playlists We Discovered This Week

Songza can be demanding. It takes me roughly an hour to decide on what I want for lunch, and over an hour to decide on what movie I want to watch – so when Songza asks me what mood I’m in I cannot help but be overwhelmed (is angsty an option?). Luckily, I’ve recently perused Songza for hours on end to find the perfect playlists to get my day going; songs to sing obnoxiously in the shower, dance around in my room to, and of course, strut down the street to. So let your music anxiety dissipate and check out these playlists. read more…

Miley Cyrus Gambling Odds

Love it or hate it, Miley Cyrus has made it to the top of the entertainment world by shaking her butt, not wearing pants, and smoking jazz cigarettes while the rest of us tweet about said butt during our lunch breaks at work. What’s she going to do next? Well, I’m willing to bet she’ll be sticking her tongue out and not giving an ~F~ the next time we see her. Who would take that bet? I’m not sure, but I’ve compiled a list of predictions on Miley’s life and the payout you’ll recieve if you’re right. So place your bets people and become a winner winner chicken dinner. read more…

What Ever Happened To: Jamie Lynn Spears


Britney Spears: She made you cry, sing out loud (with a pencil behind your hair as a made-up headpiece-microphone), and want rock hard abs. But as Britney began to drift out of the spotlight, we needed to find an adequate replacement – and who better to ~fill the void~ than a mini-me Britney?! From Oops I Did It Again, a younger Spears almost made us think that the entire Britney saga was *destined* to be re-lived! However, that wasn’t necessarily the way it went down. As much as Jamie-Lynn Spears had some solid years, it was short-lived…so let’s take a moment to travel down memory lane and revisit the course of her life in the spotlight. read more…

Summer Hairspiration: Double Buns

It is a known fact that I would drop everything and leave this style century to remain trapped in the 90′s wearing stone washed jeans, humming N*SYNC, and watching Breaker High in a heartbeat. But even though I wish for these things on a daily basis, I have yet to figure out how to travel backwards through time…so I’ve been trying to come up with intelligent ways to bring a little 90′s to the 21st century. This week, my time-travel substitute is brought to you by the magic of ~hair~. Enough of this single top bun craze, it’s time to !!double the trouble!! for summer, channel your inner 90′s raver girl, and commit to the hair trend that is ‘double buns’.

Singers Turned Actors: Not Always A Good Idea

Beyoncé, being Beyoncé, is always the exception to the rule. Sasha Fierce, who got her roots in the music biz, was just as ethereal as a Dream Girl as she was a Destiny’s Child. Other musical starlets who weren’t as lucky to be born Mrs. Carter have had a harder time breaking onto the acting scene. (And attn, Brittney Spears, this means you.) Join us as we observe our favourite musical talents up against silver screen versions of themselves. ~Lights, camera, action~…and Queen Latifa as a nanny! read more…

Throwback Thursday: Awkward Celebrity Prom Photos

Spoiler Alert: The following post contains questionable 90s hair, Tupac in a white suit, and way too much organza + taffeta to be sartorially sane. But If there’s anything that this throwback has taught us (other than the fact that cow print and blue hair don’t mix) it’s that even celebs can’t escape the inevitably awkward photo ops associated with prom. So embrace the camera, maybe throw in a Cara face for good measure, and werk your prom hair – because even if you’re Princess Riri, you’ve got nothing on awkward prom photos. read more…

Retrospect: Good Gurlz Gone Bad

It happens to the best of them: Once Family Channel frequenters, later pseudo-train wrecks and the walking, talking, worst nightmares of parents everywhere. We’ve seen it time and time again, as countless young starlets tarnish their reps in lieu of a naughtier public persona. The latest celeb to join the dark side, Amanda Bynes, has left longtime fans perplexed (if not slightly creeped out) with awkward tweets. But all of that aside, maybe the teen queen rebel wannabees are onto something? Maybe, just maybe, the grass is greener on the wild side…so take some time to deliberate with our retrospective of G starlets gone R(otten).

Throwback: 2007

Seeing as I’m on the cusp of entering “real world” adulthood, fondly revisiting memories of my life circa 2007 is pretty much mandatory. Aside from the awkward irrelevancies
that came with being 15-ish, 2007 will forever be held high on a pedestal and addressed
as The Best Collection of 365 Days Ever. read more…
