One Direction…Thinks We’re Beautiful!

Justin Bieber was done the second these five guys stepped on the stage.  Probably not(since he has obsessive fans that will become the likes of Elvis’ 40 year old groupies)…although we’re having a difficult time imagining dear old Justin, who should be singing “If You Were My Boyfriend” instead of “If I Was Your Boyfriend”, transitioning into the likes of reputable actor Justin Timberlake or Mark Wahlberg.  It might be time for Justin to pay another groupie to have sex with him, actually get her pregnant this time and settle down.

Niall, Zayn, Liam, Harry and Louis.  Don’t worry folks…if you have crushes, no matter what age you are or how inappropriate it may seem, all of the boys are over 18…so crush away! (We’re Niall and Zayn fans…for their style of course.) Often referred to as the new British Invasian(are we seriously comparing them to The Beatles), one thing is certain, teens around the world are losing their minds over these boys.  Twitter, Facebook and especially Tumblr is filled with images and gifs of these boys in various poses, caught off guard and even a few in, what would seem, compromising positions.

The band, formed for the British television show The X Factor, actually can sing.  We loved their breakout song “What Makes You Beautiful” even before we realized it was actually a boy band and not remnant members of a thrash band singing it.  We just didn’t realize they were singing it to us!

And maybe that’s what we all secretly love about boy bands, whether we like to admit it or not.  They’re cute, they’re fun and they are reminiscent of good times.  If you’re a teenager, it might be the song you sing to with your girlfriends in the car late on Friday nights this summer or hear in the background as you kiss your first boyfriend.  Or maybe you’re a gay teenager who hears this song and  feels ok with yourself for the very first time…ever.  If you’re older, it might remind us of those days before the world got real and bills, taxes and troubles lurked around the corner.  Boy bands are our youth…no matter who you are.

We wouldn’t have been caught dead listening to boy bands, much less admitting our love of some of their songs, favoring The Smiths and The Cure.  But truth be told, many summer nights were spent dancing with girlfriends to LFO’s Summer Girls.  So settle down.  Its almost summer. The reality is we all love boy band music because we it doesn’t make us think too hard.

So enjoy being younger, whether you’re 15 or 50, and get beautiful! You only live once!

Madonna…THE Look…Yesterday and Today

Who’s That Girl???  How does one even begin to compare and contrast Madonna’s looks through the years.  She has changed so many times and so often, who could possibly keep up.  No one! That’s exactly why she’s always been at the top of her game! To us, the memories of her looks are more like a teenager’s wall collage of their favorite magazine clippings…We even included a little honorary subliminal message nodding to the question Madonna has been posing to her fans for years!

So…Who’s That Girl?  Shhh…It’s A Secret…We may never know!

Would You Rather: The Kardashians!

Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kris, Rob, Kendall, Kylie, Bruce, Lamar and Mason! Oh My! Do you love them or do you hate them.  Today, people either seem incredibly praising of the Kardashian clan…or incredibly critical, especially of Kim.  Our Twitter feed is filled daily about the Kardashians, mostly by the Kardashians themselves, but also by others making fun of the family.  Jokes about Kim Kardashian’s marriage flood the headlines and get reTweeted constantly.  “The only thing shorter than Kim Kardashian’s marriage is KONY 2012” Although that may be true, enough is enough.  They’re human beings after all and bullying is bullying.  Many might point out that they put themselves in the public eye so they deserve what they get.  Really? Really?

The reality is…people are jealous.  These bitches look incredible…all of the time! They have incredible lives and travel to incredible places.  And although they may seem superficial with their love of fashion, extravagance, etc…below the surface, they remind us of any other family.  No one is that deep all of the time!

Their mother Kris has turned a sex tape scandal and sisterly love into a hundred million dollar industry…all by just being themselves, living their lives and allowing us into their living rooms, literally.  Could you do it? Because, it is a job…a career…a life.  We love these bitches! LOVE THEM! And we think the world has been extremely unkind to them without walking around in their heels.

Would You Rather: Round 3

If you could trade lives with the Kardashians, having the money and luxury they have, at the expense of having your life on television for the entire world, would you?

Andrej Pejic – THE Role Model

If you know of our obsession with fashion and models, especially the lives behind the camera and runway, and our obsession with Jean-Paul Gaultier, in part due to our dear comrade Velvet D’Amour(check out our interview) making fashion history by walking in his show, then you’ll understand why we’re picking Andrej Pejic as our first model to be hosted in The Role Model.  Andrej walked in Gaultier’s men’s and women’s fashion shows in January 2011.  He again walked in both shows for MICHALSKY in July of 2011…and we have loved him ever since. Loved is even putting it mildly.  Obsessed.  Adoring.  Blushing.

Andrej Pejic, who won the Beyond Style award earlier in the week at LOGO TV’s New Now Next Awards, is a 20 year old, Australian androgynous male model who defies boundaries and is a pioneer in today’s fashion frontier.  While to many,  his androgyny is new and confusing, to others it is a renaissance of previous ideas of Marlene Dietrich and Calvin Klein…pumped up to the volume of fashion frenzy.

Andrej Pejic is the future of fashion.

Too controversial for most US conservative minds, in May of 2011, bookstores Borders and Barnes and Noble, covered his cover of Dossier Journal with a sleeve so shoppers wouldn’t be offended if confused and mistake the picture for a topless women.  Hey folks…Borders is gone…Andrej is still here!

Andrej was born in Bosnia, fled with his mother to Serbia to live in a refugee camp and moved to Melbourne as political refugees when he was 8 years old.  Today he finds himself walking runways and hyping up controversy in bookstores on the verge of their demise.  Not bad for 20 years old.  Needless to say, we feel Andrej is here to stay and has a lot more to do.  After all, let’s not forget the powerful scene in The Devil Wears Prada in which Miranda Priestly explains to Andy what the color blue represents, not only to the fashion world, but the world at large.

Andrej is today’s blue.

Azealia Banks is One Rude Bisexual Bitch!

We are in love with Azealia Banks; the girl who’s asking “I guess that cunt getting eaten”.  The song plays nonstop in our house while we bop around imagining her sitting on our couch, smirking while rapping her genius raps.  But where the hell did she come from?

Well…Azaelia…previously known as Miss Bank$, grew up in Harlem, New York with her mother and two sisters.  Although she never graduated high school, she attended the LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts and has an extensive history of musical theatre.  Makes one pause and wonder…where the hell did this little girl get that big mouth of hers? Who knows…but we love her for it.

Oh, by the way…did we mention she has publicaly acknowledged her bisexuality AND she’s performing at Coachella!!! Now who’s cunt getting eaten?

Marina and the Diamonds…Our Teen Dream!

If you have never heard of Marina and the Diamonds…Catch the fuck up! And although Marina happens to be 26, she oozes such teen angst, whipped up with bubble gum bitchiness that she is forever our teen dream! It also doesn’t hurt that all over Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook her teen fans post pictures in droves and obsess over her.  Its no accident that her music videos reap millions of views on YouTube and her albums sell ridiculously well all over the world.

Are you thinking, Holy shit! She’s going to be the next big thing? Wrong…

She already is!

Her next album, Electra Heart, can be pre-ordered and will be released in the UK on April 30th!

We love her!

RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 4! The Final Three Bitches!

Were you guys crying, like we were, tonight as Latrice gave her sashay speech to RuPaul? “Thank you for seeing something special in me.” It was clear it was time for Latrice to go but she was so damn endearing, even up to the very last minute, that we didn’t want to see her go.  Couldn’t we just keep it those final four forever?

If you didn’t watch tonight’s episode we’ll break it down for you.  The audience is pulled even further into the show by four absolutely adorable dogs, especially the one Chad Michaels assigns to himself, and we get to see the other girls poke fun at Phi Phi again as she gets slobbered over by her enormous dog.  They have to present several outfits…Daytime Party RealnessParty with a Pooch in your Purse or something and Pooch Couture?? It didn’t really matter.  All three of Latrice’s outfits looked similar.  Chad Michaels looked the most daytime housewife in the park.  Her party outfit was dead up on Kim Kardashian, as noted by RuPaul…but her couture outfit was more of a one piece deal…we were confused.  Phi Phi looked great in all of her outifts, especially her daytime realness which was actually something more out of a Japanese Anime book; but she looked incredible…and we greatly appreciated her custom made, pink glittered poop scooper. (Can we buy one please?) Sharon, our fave, of course looked great in all three outfits.  Her daytime realness looked incredible, but her rock star, party outfit complete with house arrest bracelet proved she is much more a bad girl. The poodle boots she wore at the end were absolutely incredible and she looked like she was on the cover of a 1960’s French Vogue.

Ok, so here’s the problem.  Although we love Sharon Needles…we would really be happy if any of the top three won.  Chad Michaels is so incredibly polished and amazing that she definitely deserves to win for those reasons alone.  Phi Phi, besides being the only really cute boy on the show(don’t laugh, you know its true), has really come a long way.  But she’s such a bitch.  Funny…she’s a lot like us, but instead we find ourselves rooting for Sharon?? Actually what we want is for Sharon and Phi Phi to become friends, something it appears Sharon wants and attempts on every show.  In fact, although she wouldn’t admit it, she’s a little attention seeking from Phi Phi.  Damn Phi Phi…you all talk about how hard your lives have been and how people haven’t treated you nice…THAT was what Sharon was talking about on the runway!!! Be friends dammit and show the world that even bitches can get along!

We believe RuPaul’s Drag Race really teaches us about the inner trenches of ourselves.  Here you have a bunch of drag queens, probably some of the most misunderstood people in the world, and they’ve created their own little microcosm of the world, where jealousy, fear, wisdom and bullying are just as prevalent as they are in the real world.  We believe we tend to favor Sharon because she represents that pain in a way that reminds of that part of ourselves that wants to be true and real, but also dreams for the acceptance from others.  Isn’t that what being gay is all about?

The show even got better afterwards on RuPaul’s Drag Race Untucked.  Did they really make THE Dita Von Teese wait…and then she left? Seriously?

Oh…and Chad Michaels is 280 in dog years, not 170!

Good Luck bitches!
