Celebrity Product Taste Test: Mariah Carey's New "Butterfly" Drink
First, I know what you're thinking, and it's probably "I didn't even know Mariah Carey had her own drink!" I found out from a friend who called specifically to tell me because she knew I would find it amusing. Among my friends, I am known for my notorious soft spot for awkward celebrity-endorsed products, and Mariah's off-brand Vitamin Water - named after her mid-90s album 'Butterfly' - is no real exception. "Who would even buy it?" She laughed, and I could practically hear her cynical eyeroll through the phone. I would. I would buy it. And this morning, I rolled into Walgreens in my pajamas, and I did. And now I am going to taste test this stuff for all of you, judging packaging, price, and taste on a 5-point scale. Because Mariah Carey has a five-octave range, and I'm a clever human being. Anyway. Cue my obligatory Mariah jam, "Up Out My Face", and let's get this started. The Packaging: 3/5 Firstly, being comfortable with going to Walgreens only to buy a 'melodic beverage inspired by the magic of Mariah Carey' was the emotional hurdle you would probably expect. The bottle is covered with butterflies and extremely pink. (So basically, if you really want to embarrass your boyfriend the next time you send him to the grocery store for tampons, make sure you tell him to pick you up a bottle of Butterfly too.) The description on the back of the bottle tells little of the drink's actual flavor, and instead is filled with enough cheesy Mariah metaphors to make you want to quit while you're ahead. And I quote: "BUTTERFLY gives everyone something new to sing about. Let this melodic blend of sophisticated sweetness lift you to your high notes every day that you pamper yourself with a sip of Butterfly inspired by Mariah Carey." It is nice that Mariah was able to find new work for whoever helped her write the script for 'Glitter'. I guess. The Price: 5/5 (99¢ per 16-ounce bottle) While I would probably best compare this drink to Vitamin Water, it actually sells for much cheaper. When I was at Walgreens, it was labeled as 99 cents, but when I went to actually buy it, there was an additional 20 cents taken off when she scanned it. 79 cents for a 16-ounce beverage? (Don't let Mariah's champagne glass in the above picture fool you, this stuff is selling cheaper than bottled water!) The Taste: 2/5 I was pretty thirsty on the ride back home, so while I wanted to wait to try this fairly, I stole a sip while waiting at a red light. THIS DRINK IS SO SWEET. They really weren't kidding when they used the phrase 'sophisticated sweetness'. It tastes like someone melted down a couple bags of strawberry Jolly Ranchers and mixed it into water with that cotton candy body spray I used to wear in junior high. I am already a huge sugar wimp as it is. I usually have to dilute apple juice or lemonade whenever I buy it because it always seems to run too sweet. So the fact that this drink was so much sweeter than normal made my stomach instantly feel a little sick. To its credit, I think some people would like this if it were either heavily diluted or splashed into a sparkling white wine or vodka-based cocktail. I would imagine it would give alcoholic drinks a taste similar to Nuvo. (Not to mention, it's a pretty similar color.) Overall Score: D (66%) This drink is bogus. But I suppose if you're looking for a cheap mixer for your Mariah Carey at the Colosseum pre-gaming party this summer, you're pretty much set.
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.

Inilah 6 Gedung Agensi Idola K-Pop Termewah di Korea Selatan
1.(YG ENT : PICT 1) Ini dia agensi tempat sang rapper fenomenal, Psy bernaung. Semua fasilitas dan peralatan dalam kantor ini super duper canggih, mulai dari ruangan latihan para idola hingga toiletnya. Saking canggihnya, Psy saja sampai kebingungan bagaimana cara untuk menyiram toilet. Selain Psy, idola K-pop lain yang bernaung di sini ada Big Bang, 2NE1, Lee Hi, dan lainnya. Kantor YG terletak di Mapo-gu, Hapjeong-dong, 397-5, Seoul, Korea Selatan. 2. (SM ENT :PICT 2) Yap, kita semua pasti sudah tau siapa aja idola k-pop yang bernaung di dalam gedung ini? Yap! Super Junior, TVXQ, SNSD, dan lainnya adalah beberapa idola K-pop yang ber-‘markas’ di gedung ini. Kantor SM Entertainment berdiri seperti gedung perkantoran dengan lambang bintang besar dan tulisan SM Town. Tempat yang beralamat di Gangnam-gu, Apgujeong-2dong, 521, Seoul,Korea Selatan ini sering dijadikan objek berfoto untuk para wisatawan. Saat ini, SM sudah punya gedung baru yang di dalamnya terdapat fasilitas modern yang tidak kalah dengan YG Entertainment. 3. (JYP ENT: PICT 3) Selanjutnya, adalah tempat bernaung para idola K-pop, seperti 2PM, 2AM, Wonder Girls, miss A dan lainnya. Gedung ini agak sedikit berbeda karena di depannya banyak poster-poster sang artis yang menempel di kaca gedung seperti bisokop. Poster-poster di kaca gedung inilah yang sering dijadikan objek betfoto oleh para wisatawan. Kantor JYP terletak di Gangnam-gu, Cheongdam-dong, 123-50, Seoul, Korea Selatan. 4.(CUBE ENT: PICT 4) Agensi yang menaungi BEAST, 4Minute, G.Na dan BtoB ini punya sebuah studio yang diberi nama Cube Studio.

Di dalam kantor ini juga dilengkapi dengan café di lantai 1. Sementara di lantai dua merupakan tempat untuk latihan menari dan kegiatan lainnya. 5. (LOEN ENT: PICT 5) Melihat gedung kantor agensi yang menaungi IU ini memang mirip seperti sebuah bank. Gedung agensi yang terletak di kawasan Samseong-dong, Gangnam ini begitu kaku namun berkelas. Tak banyak kesan futuristik seperti gedung agensi entertainment lainnya, LOEN Entertainment membangun gedung perusahaan seperti sebuah bank yang bukannya menyimpan uang, tapi memang ‘mencetak’ uang dari para artisnya. 6. (DREAM TEA ENT : PICT 6) Gedung yang terlihat seperti bangunan apartemen mewah ini merupakan gedung agensi Dream Tea Entertainment yang terletak di Yeoksam-dong, Gangnam, Korea Selatan. Meski artis dari agensi ini yang cukup dikenal baru Girls’ Day saja, tapi siapa yang tahu jika suatu saat nanti gedung ini akan ‘mencetak’ idola K-pop baru selain Girls’ Day.
