Taylor Swift Pushes Back At Kanye West In Grammy Speech
Taylor Swift isn't going to let someone take credit for her accomplishments. Take that Kanye! Prior to the Grammys, the web was a buzz after drama between Taylor Swift and Kanye West hit the web. Kanye dropped a single called "Famous" referring to Swift in a lyric, "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous.". Quickly, fans and Swift herself through a spokesperson made comments that she did not like or personally know about or allow the use of her name in his lyric. It's just one more awkward interaction between the two who have been having beef for years but had just made amends last year when Swift presented Kanye with the Video Vanguard Award at the 2015 VMAs. Swift won her second Grammy for Album of the Year, being the first woman to win the award twice. She hugged Selena Gomez immediately following the announcement of her name. She also gave a secret handshake to Jack Antonoff and gave Kendrick Lamar a hug before heading on stage. The album '1989' has been an extremely huge international success making it only fair that she won. So when given the opportunity, Swift made sure to make it very clear that no one was going to take her time to shine this time. Her speech is as followed: "I want to thank fans for the last 10 years and the Recording Academy for giving us this unbelievable honor. I want to thank all of my collaborators that you season this stage, mostly I want to thank my co-executive producer Max Martin who has deserved to be up here for 25 years. And as the first woman to win Album of the Year at the Grammys twice, I want to say to all the young women out there, there are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame. But if you just focus on the work and you don't let those people sidetrack you, someday, when you get where you are going, you will look around and you will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there. And that will be the greatest feeling in the world. Thank you for this moment." Comment, Kanye?
Twitter's Biggest Celebrity WAR
"Gun in my purse, b*tch I came dressed to kill...." On July 21st, Nicki Minaj took to Twitter to release her frustrations with the MTV VMAs nominations. Minaj is largely upset that her music video "Anaconda" was not nominated for Best Choreography and Best Video of the Year when it definitely should have been. Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" hit 19.6 million views in the first 24 hours breaking all previous VEVO records. The next to break Minaj's VEVO records was Taylor Swift which is why when Minaj refers to "girls" in her tweets, it's why many think is ultimately a poke at Swift. The "Anaconda" video caused a media storm filled with men sexualizing Minaj, women critiquing, thousands of memes, celebrity mockery, and Minaj risking her self image. Everyone who was anyone talked about that video and was OBSESSED. However, MTV Video Music Awards still didn't nominate her video. Ridiculous. This isn't the first time a video that deserved a nomination was snubbed. Katy Perry's "Roar" was not nominated last year when the view count for her video broke multiple records. She took to Twitter last year prior to the awards upset over the nominations. It has now opened the gates for all artists to feel comfortable to use their voice to call out the award show when they know they deserved a nomination. Minaj called out the award show saying that she has done everything the other nominees have done in her series of tweets but because she is black, she's been discriminated against and everyone knows it : It all started out with Minaj pointing out the flaws in how nominees are selected... Then Taylor Swift swooped in and reprimanded Minaj's tweets in the stance of faux-feminism. Minaj responded proving that Swift was in the wrong. Swift tried to make it about herself completely missing Minaj's point. And yet in all of the chaos, Kim Kardashian still managed to get involved... Ryan Seacrest jumped in siding with Swift which led to a swarm of attacks at Seacrest. He eventually deleted his tweet that victimized Swift and made Minaj look like she was attacking and weak. Yikes. And then Meek Mill thought it'd also be appropriate to throw shade at Drake. Horrible timing. Of course Bruno Mars tried to lighten the situation by launching a fake Twitter fight against Ed Sheeran. Aaron Paul invited the girls to pancakes. Indirectly, they were all mocking the girls and their behavior. They got to sit back and watch the show unfold... Katy Perry favorited Bruno Mar's tweet amidst the criticism of Taylor Swift. SHOCKER. "Black women influence pop culture so much but are rarely rewarded for it." Fans are NOT HAPPY with the nominations or Taylor Swift. In the past, Best Music Video of the Year is the top award for genre-defining videos. It's been given to Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance", Katy Perry's "Firework", Beyoncé's "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)", and Sinéad O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares 2 U" in the past. Minaj is simply pointing out that nominations should be given and awarded to artists who are getting it based off of achievement. That's what an award show is for. Do you think Minaj is in the right? I think so.
The Summer Makeup Trend You Need To Get Hip To
Makeup junkies, there's a new, or not so new trick in town. Every so often, a new makeup trick pops up on the scene. First it was contouring, then highlighting, then baking and now sandbagging. I mean seriously, will we be able to keep up with all the new tricks in another year or so? I guess time will tell. Of course, Kim Kardashian's makeup artist put this trick on the map after posting the technique just in time for summer. Similar to the baking technique, sandbagging is all about absorbing oils and grease from the face via setting a powder on top of your foundation. According to Marie Claire, 'All you have to do is use a sponge to cake on loose powder over foundation, focusing specifically on the areas underneath the eyes and around the bottom edges of the lips. After the powder is applied, you wait a few minutes for it to set—the idea being that it absorbs oils from the skin and ensures that those areas will stay ultra-smooth and matte throughout the day.' While this trend isn't technically new, it's new to most, so we are going to pretend it is. This technique not only absorbs oil, but it sets makeup and ensures your makeup won't bleed outside of the lines. Talk about heaven sent. If this technique sounds like it's up your alley and you're in need of absorbing some access oils, keep scrolling and check out the brief tutorial seen below. Are you familiar with the sandbagging technique? Would you be interested in giving it a try? @TessStevens @humairaa @stephosorio @hikaymm @marshalledgar @amobigbang @LAVONYORK @VeronicaArtino @primodiva93 @MyAffairWith @jazziejazz
Makeup Artist Draws Kim Kardashian On Her Chin
If you think Michael Jordan crying meme is hilarious, the Kim Kardashian one is twice as funny. As much as we love Kim K, she will never get out of this one -- ever. Let's be honest, her cry was monumental and quite hideous -- then again, who really has a lovely looking smile anyway? While Michael Jordan has been getting the most shine lately for his crying meme, it didn't take long before someone came along and put the infamous Kim Kardashian meme on the map. You've seen it on blogs, you've seen it on cellphones, and you've even seen it on shirts, but have you ever seen it on someone's chin? If not, today happens to be your lucky day. A talented makeup artist decided it would be cool if she drew cry baby Kim on her chin and believe it or not, it actually came out looking rather amazing. You cannot tell me that makeup is not a form of art. Laura Jenkinson is a makeup artist known for recreating images on her chin using her ever so amazing makeup skills and if you thought this was pretty awesome, just wait until you see her Donald Trump drawing -- yikes. In the meantime, keep scrolling and check out the images below. How epic is this? Looks just like Kim. Seriously. Of course, you can't have Kim without Kylie and her new lips. Amazing! Looks just like Jay-Z. Big lips and all. He has that same sinister look he always has on his face. Donald Gump. Ooops, I mean't Trump. Hey Everyone, look it's Finn from Adventure Time! And of course, I had to save the best for last and for @alywoah. Tacos! How amazingly odd are these works of art? Which one is your favorite? @alywoah @danidee @humairaa @cindystran @sophiamor @buddyesd @marshalledgar @YourConscience @shannonl5 @TessStevens @MyAffairWith @EasternShell @Cle1 @jazziejazz @primodiva93 @stephosorio @LizArnone
Australian Comedian Remakes & Mocks Celebrity Photos
Kim and Kanye's super posed makeout. Celeste Barber, Australian comedian, is exposing what celebrity pictures really mean to the general public. In today's world, we are constantly bombarded by pictures from celebrities who think that they are being relatable to their fans when in reality they know that their examples are completely unattainable for the average viewer. “People are so obsessed with celebrities and celebrities seem to be so obsessed with portraying everyday people,” Barber told ABC. "I thought, right, if this is what everyone does — challenge accepted.“ Baber went on to redraft and reform some of the most iconic photos to hit Instagram. Normal photos of celebrities are really just PR enhanced and prepped photos that they are aiming to hit at least 500,000 likes on. 1 million is golden. But these everyday "normal" photos are as fake as some of the celebrities themselves. Check out some of the most hilarious remakes to hit the internet this week! #celestechallengeaccepted Miranda Kerr not really trying to boost your self esteem. Miley Cyrus's not so innocent boob shot. I think the guy is enjoying this way more than Minaj. Is this supposed to be provocative? What You Think You're Doing vs. Reality Athlete superstar vs. Working mother of three. Because everyone poses seductively with food. "I have an idea, let's have you lay in a pile of dirt. It's exotic." #NoFilter I hate this new yoga move. Erotic. My hair naturally blows in the wind. Basic workout attire to be a Jenner. I don't use lip fillers at all.
