While I’m sure everyone is focused on the Emmys, I felt the need to write about Rebel Wilson instead. I think it was divine intervention or something like that.
The reason I have decided to write about Rebel is because she has a new show premiering Wednesday, October 2nd on ABC. It’s called Super Fun Night and just by the title alone, I know it’s going to be full of hilariousness. How do I know that, because I Loled at the trailer and I’m pretty sure you will too. If you don’t, I have no words left for you.
Along with plugging Rebel’s new show, I want to discuss the things that made me fall in love with this wild woman.
Free Tattoo and a Mexican Drinking Worm
Rebel was a supporting character in Bridesmaids, but she really made an impact on me with her complete ridiculousness. I mean, who would say yes to a free tattoo from a guy in a van?! Ok, depending on the day, I might say yes too.
Shot by a Mexican Burrito
In Pitch Perfect, Rebel showed us she not only has acting skills, but she can really belt out a tune. In this clip, Rebel’s character is just trying to pump some gas, when an opposing a cappella team member throws a burrito at her. When I first saw this scene, I laughed so hard I missed the next 12 minutes of the movie.
Rebel’s Fashion Choices
I wish I could walk out of the house in half the outfits Rebel has rocked. Below is my absolute favorite, yet practical outfit she has ever worn.
Rebel – Can you let me know where you purchased your kola bear jumpsuit? I need something to spice up my Sunday afternoons.
It seems I blipped off the radar these last few days – I apologize. You can blame my cat, she was sitting on my computer. See below:
Anywho, on this fine Sunday evening, I’d like to write about one of my favorite topics…lady singers. It’s true, I love pop divas, including Cher, Xtina and B. Spears – just to name a few. With this blog series, I’d like to share some new favorites of mine for us to enjoy together.
Lana Del Rey
I hope you and your ears have had the pleasure of hearing Lana and her redic lyrics. If you haven’t, get ready to listen to a lady who says exactly what’s on her mind. For example, she sings about Pabst Blue Ribbon on ice, a dude’s python and drugs, lots of drugs.
Spoiler Alert: Lana Del Rey isn’t her real name, it’s Elizabeth Woolridge Grant and she’s 27 years young. Lana was discovered by uploading her songs to YouTube. Because of that, she got herself a real record deal! Her first single was “Video Games,” which was on her second studio album “Born to Die.”
While the critics have mixed feelings about Lana’s talent, more specifically a past appearance on SNL, I’m into her music – it speaks to me. Here are a few of my favorite Lana jams:
Lana channels Jackie O and A$AP Rocky takes on the role of JFK. Odd, but in an awesome way. Lyrics to listen up for: Um, do you think you’ll buy me lots of diamonds?
Lyrics to listen up for: Promise you’ll remember that you’re mine/Baby can you see through the tears/Love you more/Than those bitches before
“Off to the Races”
Lyrics to listen up for: Swimming pool glimmering darling/White bikini off with my red nail polish/Watch me in the swimming pool bright blue ripples you/Sitting sipping on your black Cristal
And the final reason as to why you should listen to Lana…she can teach you how to be a boss. See below:
Lana – Thank you and keep it classy.
There are many times throughout any given day where I think to myself, “I would like to be so and so for a day.” More times than I’d like to admit, I usually pick Britney. If I could pick a particular era, you know I’m heading straight back to 2007 to find out the real deal and then write a tell-all book.
Enough about Britney. If I could be any celebrity today, I would pick Katniss. I know she’s not an actual celebrity in this scenario, but she’s so damn cool. She’s got a sweet hair braid, a bow and arrow and can wear leather and not look ridiculous…all dreams of mine.
Lately, Katniss has been on my mind for several reasons:
- I keep seeing the “Catching Fire” trailer.
- Usually on Tuesdays, I think about what I would do if the “Hunger Games” broke out in my office. Step 1 – Monopolize the water cooler.
- I’m currently reading the third book in the “Hunger Games” saga because it’s a free borrow from the Kindle Library. Thanks Amazon!
So now that you know who/why I would pick, the next question is what would I do for the day.
Well, first things first, I would braid my hair. After that, I would put on some leather pants, grab my bow and arrow and hit the concrete jungle known as Philadelphia. I’d probably go to a dangerous part of the city and try to catch criminals while yelling “I’m Katniss” every time I shoot an arrow. Then I would head to the office and show my coworkers how good I look in leather and whip my braid back and forth.
It doesn’t sound like I’m really living it up as Katniss, but if you know me, you know this is living it up in my book.
Start prepping yourself for November 21st, that’s when “Catching Fire” hits theaters. Look for me and my braid at the movies!
Spoiler Alert! Here is an article explaining some differences from the “Catching Fire” book and movie.
I know, I know. It has been a long time. When I considered re-upping my blog, I was trying to think of some excuses as to why I stopped posting. Here is what I came up with:
1. I forgot my password.
2. I was in a year-long blackout.
That’s all I got. To be honest, the reason I chose today of all days is because my roommate is away and both the cats are sleeping. I have no one to talk to…so here we are.
This post is very important…it is my comeback post. Because of that, now is the time for me to discuss a few of the greatest celebrity comebacks.
3. Robert Downey Jr.
We all know about Downey’s struggles with drugs, prison, etc. I mean he did start acting when he was five years old, we should have seen this coming. He has since gotten his shit together, claiming that his family, therapy, meditation, twelve-step programs, yoga and the practice of Wing Chun Kung Fu helped him rise back to the top. Downey claims he has been drug-free since 2003…that sentence has campaign slogan written all over it and would get my vote. I’m into it.
2. Drew Barrymore
Another child star going down the wrong path. Doesn’t anyone see a pattern here? (I’m talking to you, Bieber). Anywho, Drew really hit the big time with her role as Gertie in E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. As her star rose, shit got real. Drew revealed that she was a regular at Studio 54 where she smoked cigs, drank and ingested a boatload of drugs, all before she was technically a teenager. This led her to two stints in rehab and a bunch of embarrassing moments. After a bumpy ride back and an awkward marriage to Tom Green, Drew is now a new mom to Olive and married to Will Kopelman! You go girl.
1. Britney Spears
If you know me at all, you had to see this one coming. We all know about Brit’s trial and tribulations. Especially in the year 2007…when she was in a continuous blackout for that entire year. I don’t like to relive the pain she (and I) was in during that time. All I have to say is…God, she looks great and I’m mentally and physically prepping for Album #8.
but it has finally happened!
First of all…#TeamKatie
Don’t worry…I have a theory as to why TomKat’s marriage lasted as long as it did. While I’m gathering my thoughts and data and putting them into the idea machine, I wanted to leave you with this photo.
P.S. Matt Lauer…you’re next!
Sorry I have been missing in action these past few days. I’ve been in the process of finishing up my master’s degree! Don’t believe me? I have the cap and gown to prove it : )
We will be back to our regular scheduled programming on Monday. Thank you all for being a friend.
And Britney…If you’re reading this…The graduation party will continue in the wee hours of the morning. Call me, I know you’re dying to get out.
In order to keep up with basically everything…I subscribe to Cosmo. I have learned so much from this magazine. For example:
- What type of BFF I am (the awesome one…obvi)
- How to scoop a man by July (still working on this one)
- What kind of sunblock I should wear that compliments my skin type
And the list goes on and on.
As a dedicated Cosmo subscriber, I was surprised to receive a postcard in the mail telling me that they have received a rush in subscriptions and I’ll be receiving my magazine asap. I was totally okay with that, until I read the other side of the postcard which said my subscription would begin with the August issue.
So Cosmo, what happened to the month of July? Does that one not count anymore?
I tweeted Cosmo a few days ago about this debacle…no response of course. Can someone explain this to me? I would like to know how this is a good business practice.
P.S. If you haven’t figured it out yet…I’m upset!
How are you? I am fine. I just wanted to let you know that I will be taking the next few days off. I have started a real life job (!!!!!) and need to get acclimated to this new schedule.
Don’t worry, I’ll be back this weekend!
P.S. My friend Staniel <3 shared a great picture with me and I would like to pass it on to you…to hold you over until I post again.
Ever since her split with husband number one, Kim Kardashian has decided to stay mum on any potential/budding relationships.
While this sounds like a good philosophy to live by, Kim K isn’t doing so well at keeping her private life…private.
As you know, Kim has been seen prancing all over NYC with rapper Kanye West. Obviously rumors have been swirling that these two are a couple. Kim and Kanye have given us a variety of reasons for that conclusion:
- The pair has had multiple slumber parties that end with Kim doing the walk of shame the next morning
- Kanye laid out his feelings for the reality TV star/business woman on a new track titled, “Thera flu” where he states, “And I’ll admit, I fell in love with Kim/‘Round the same time she had fell in love wit’ him/Well, that’s cool, baby girl, do ya thing/Lucky I ain’t have Jay drop ‘im from the team”
- This past weekend West had dinner with the overwhelmingly large Kardashian family
While all that stuff can be deemed innocent, Kim really did a number today. She was spotted wearing earrings that contain the initials KW. I wonder who/what that could mean?
It seems that Kim isn’t really good at keeping Kanye a secret. But really, could anyone actually tame Kanye?
Below is a 13 second clip that makes an appearance on MTV2 every three minutes. I’m highlighting this because it makes me LOL every damn time.
If you didn’t know, MTV2 plays old school episodes of “Saved By the Bell” and “Boy Meets World” during the afternoon. This fits perfectly into my TV schedule…I have nothing to watch after “Maury.”
Anywho…I hope you enjoy this clip as much as I do!
P.S. The song Jessie Spano is shaking her thang to is “The Motto” by Drake.
