How Are You Celebrating Niall Appreciation Day?

It's been a tough few weeks for One Directioners. Still reeling from Zayn's departure, we now know that Louis is expecting a baby. So it's nice to see some positivity coming from the fandom. Trending on Twitter today is #NiallAppreciationDay and we all know why. It's time to appreciate one of our favorite performers!

Fans are spending the day reminiscing about awesome concerts, sweet moments, and years of adorable selfies.

Niall spends so much time appreciating his fans and friends, doesn't it seem fair to spend one day appreciating him in return?

And of course that one really awkward time.

Who else remembers that?

And of course there were the... other reasons fans love Niall.

There were rumors being spread that Niall and longtime friend Justin Bieber were using drugs yesterday evening. Tabloids noted: "Despite reports, there is no suggestion that the boys were not involved in drug taking." That sad double-negative didn't stand a chance to ruin the 1D love fest today!
What do you appreciate most about Niall?

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
Why Hilary Duff's Clothes Shouldn't Define Her Motherhood
Stop slut shaming. Why is it that every time a mom posts a picture of herself where she feels good, the internet has to tear her down because it's too sexy, too provocative, or too inappropriate? Check out the picture that has garnered 118k likes and over 1,000 comments! Hilary Duff, don't let the haters get to you. The 28-year-old mom is under major heat after posting this photo on Tuesday of the outfit she wore to pick up her son Luca from school. Though Duff was feeling 'semi cute' in her very short shorts, tan top, and long trench, many fans had other opinions on her outfit. While Duff did invite her fans to tag themselves in their own #ootd, she got a reaction that were quite the opposite of what she had probably hoped for. "Hey moms! I came up with a semi cute outfit for school drop off! I usually roll in sweat pants or lulu lemons and look like a disaster but this morning I managed to throw something cute together and I thought I would share," Duff captioned the photo. "Cut offs or jeans. A light weight trench over a sweater or tee, cross body bag sneaks or booties and a pair of Sunnies! Now you try! Tag me in your photo (annnnd you don't have to wear such a serious face haha)." Everything from Instagram user se√Īoritaatomasita writing, "I am sorry, the only issue that I have with her outfit is how tiny her shorts are. It given men mix signals about it's okay for them to cat call a female because what she wears. Plus the outfit does not posh" to other user simplelittleway writing, "I have always like her but no way is this appropriate. They look like panties. To whoever said the only ones bothered by this are insecure moms that never lost their baby fat. I love my body and I am thin. I however would never pick my son up in that. It's inappropriate for kids to see woman in their panties. Also I would not want to embarrass my son." Some moms are furious. However, not everyone has the same opinion. Instagram user iledahorsetowater wrote, "Rock it! What is up with all the negativity?? I think you are doing a fabulous job!" Even user shenry1977 loves Duff's style, "Your outfit rocks! Haters = motivators!!!" Many other moms commented that Duff is looking better than ever and there is no reason to retire the shorty shorts to fit a very skewed social standard. Women who support other women, we need more of this. But here's the thing, Duff should be able to wear this because she feels comfortable and it makes her happy. For a society that constantly promotes feminism and girls uniting with other girls to combat slut shaming and gender stereotyping, the negativity comments are doing just the opposite. A mom can be a mom AND sexy, pretty, cute, gorgeous, stunning, funny, and appealing. Just because you have a child does not mean that a woman should sacrifice her identity. Everyone freaked out weeks ago about Kim Kardashian's almost full nude mirror pick and it looks like the same haters have made their way to Duff's post. Leave Duff alone, she looks amazing. One word : WERK.
Would You Rather: Fruit Vs. One Direction?
It's time for the Funny Community's 'Would You Rather?' game! At the end of every week, I ask you guys to decide between two very strange things. Last week, I asked you to choose between being BALD or COMPLETELY HAIRY. Out of 49 votes, the winner was... BALD with 32 votes! This week, I want to know: If you had to choose between being sexually attracted to FRUIT or ONE DIRECTION, which one would you pick? If you're dirty-talking every ripe pineapple you see, people are probably going to be a little confused by you. But if you couldn't contain yourself every time you saw a picture of Harry Styles, that might be a little weird too. Which one would YOU pick? Comment below with your answer, debate among your Vingle friends, and I'll share the results next week! @malibella @Jonathan3 @EvaEt @Jaileejailee @WiviDemol @JunieRose @JessicaChaney @ButterflyBlu @OGPanda @GinTenma @JaxomB @BeckyNewman @TerrecaRiley @MengNoZhang @VixenViVi @DannyMoses @ChosenKnight @AnnaArai @GreyStorm84 @Kuramariin @AshelyJewell @Animefoxgirl97 @deilig @chris98vamg @kimleekwonshin @shantalcamara @KpopLuver13 @Astrohelix @NerukaWong @reesesrisa @BluBear07 @SarahVanDorn @Danse @InPlainSight @matildajgarrett @JPBenedetto @MissB82 @SiobhanMartin @LAVONYORK @Jolzz @KellyOConnor @Luci546 @Kaidra @buddyesd @SarahRoot @cthulu @EmilianoMacias @Aripendragon @DipDopOfTheDip @Beccachu @supbroscene @AndreaFuller @React10K1ng @punkpandabear @Karthikkrazzy1 @JessicaPeters @EstefanOlivares @LenaBlackRose @peahyr @MelissaMae @BlackDragon88 @Showta365 @humairaa @petname83 @destiny1419 @drummergirl691 @Fledgling @SheannaWilliams @addri @Mysticinumiko @jazminramirez9 @IAmSasha @MajahnNelson @BlackXShield @LaceChic1 @Melodicballoon @FlyingAway @shellyfuentes70 @TheDumDumTroll @MissT615 @in4mtoxic006 @animerg13 @AlisonGrace @DavidPap @Emmeronsage @Vega1240 @ZombieDragon @LittleHorn @Meeshell @HeatherWright @kawaiiporpoise @MarvelTrashcan @DenieceSuit @ShinigamiSan @EasternShell @BT2581 @AnneH @KarleyFrance @DaiGakuSei @reyestiny93 @AnimeLove300 @Jarod @justme29 @ShatrdGalaxies @Vocaloid @JamiMilsap @DorianBell @PeteTehCat @MaggieCokeley @clobbersaurus @gabbycalzada @JessicaFerrier @brandontearss @m3179035411 @TheSuperior @Beeplzzz @Romana @sbeh @AnasiaLaureano @ChrisLyons @dimplequeen @ssjleek @classydownhillr @ultimatefangurl @KaylaJZ @MzDawson31508 @LiliRamos @Xiuyeolhyun @carmaa10 @Sara3 @MoisEsGaray @Alletaire @dropuentex @hhead232 @thiree @nberry1620 @atmi @KennedyCasey @TiffanyWallace @PassTheSuga @arnelli @FalseLove @jmartinez230304 @kneelb4zod @Baoyi @a514girl98 @DwaynGrant @mymi @ChienWeiHuang @KennyMcCormick @Captpeter @DianaBell @Zara0uk @seika469 @TBird @jlee37 @Animaniafreak @ThyaremyCreator @fatimajj23 @MichaeOgg @jonathan11 @BatataKnight @Ritu @culversyanne @LadyLuna @SarahRegulski @LiviBelle @TinaDang @NicoleFireRose @Jinnyrod3 @amobigbang @ultraninja10 @Rezorox @MooshieBay @AustinThurston @melineptune @RobertoPadron @MichelleRosa @evelynrodriguez @NickMcCormick @NancySilveira @FromBlue2U @RavenWilde @obiterdictum @JtacoGuzman @Animetenshizo @AlyssaGelet818 @AlexixKnight @AshleyanAlicea @LissiMichelle @rik40 @HappyLulie @dethntaxes @lilmike316 @ceilphantomhive @turbidmocha @zachburbano @SantaraJones @Hatake26 @MrsBangYongguk @lalaMF @Lizzeh @BanalataBera @AidanGiannattas @PiplupBlue @Steeldrago @P1B2Bear @MorghanPorter @JrGrimes @Amirnator @kartikab29 @Gracielou0717 @MarilynScott @ChampionShynia @KayyeAyyeeMCeef @otakukpoper @HandsomeBacon @GlitchTheRipper @isssc1100 @VanessaSimmons @MasonBurt @mkrbwaltz @ErikFrausto @coolshyguy20 @TambryInskeep @SrikarTangudu @SamIAm8605 @jla23 @adidarma92 @AndersonTapia @Nueoc @LorettaHon @reaper412
If Your Favorite Pop Star Was A Pokémon Gym Leader
Leader: Rihanna Badge: ANTI Badge Special Move: Diamond Storm What's her name? Leader Rihanna! If you're looking for love in a hopeless place, Rihanna will let her Pokémon do all of the talking. Leader Rihanna is known for shining bright like a diamond with Fire and Dark Pokémon types. First she'll make you stay, then she'll give you four to five seconds to recover, and then she'll take her bow after she destroys you. You'll have to work work work work work work to beat this woman of Disturbia. Leader: Britney Spears Badge: Venom Badge Special Move: TOXIC It's Britney, b*tch. You want a piece of her? Be aware, Leader Britney may seem like a womanizer but she'll hit you baby one more time. Leader Britney loves her special move, TOXIC which will make you wanna go until the world ends. Her ending line when she beats you is, "Oops, I did it again." The gym is like a circus as her Pokémon are practically her slaves. But after all, don't hold it against her. Leader: Beyoncé Badge: Alliance Badge Special Move: Blue Flare Who run the world? Leader Beyoncé! Listen, Queen B is known for her fighting Pokémon who will show you that her badge is the best thing you never had.

We all know that you're looking for that hometown glory but Leader Adele with her normal Pokémon isn't going to let any water under the bridge. When you are young, it's easy to think there's someone like you. However, rumor has it Adele makes her competition roll in the deep, watch the sky fall as she sets fire to the rain and she will take it all. You'll be the one chasing pavements as you run to escape from her turning tables. Don't worry, she'll try to make you feel her love even though she can't make you love her if you don't. Good luck. Leader: Sia Badge: Wig Badge Special Move: Heart Stamp You'll definitely feel alive when you meet Leader Sia. The Dark, Ghost, and Psychic Pokémon Reaper will show you that Big Girls Cry. This is the gym where fire meets gasoline, an exotic experience where Sia frequently hangs from a Chandelier as she triumphs over the battle. Don't worry about your elastic heart, you can try again for another opportunity. Just know you've been changed.
Oops! You Stayed Up All Night Reading Fanfiction (Again)
Some people just don't get it. You found a 100K word fic with your favorite tropes and pairings AND it's well-written. The sequel to your favorite fic series just came out and you have to know how it ends. You're pretty sure that John and Sherlock are going to end up together, but you really need to read the whole thing to be certain. Suddenly it's 2am and you're still not done and you have to be up for work in four hours and maybe just one more chapter... It happens. All. The. Time. And in a perfect world calling in late 'because fanfiction' would be a valid excuse, you're probably going to need to get it together before you venture out into the world again. Here's what to do: Drink some water friend. Maybe you were bawling uncontrollably because some evil fic writer hurt your bae. Or maybe those were tears of joy because everything worked out okay. Honestly, no matter what you're probably dehydrated after a marathon night reading fanfiction. Drink a glass of water, and then drink another one. Grab a snack. Did you lose track of time so completely that you have to run out the door? Yeah, you probably did. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day buddy. Grab something tasty to eat so you'll only be craving your otp for the rest of the day. Douse your brain in bleach. That disturbing fic that was too good not to finish? Yeah it's awesome, send me a link, but it's probably not the best topic of conversation at work or school. Brain bleach is selective, use enough of it so that you won't accidentally talk about that hs au abo ot3 fic you found with your boss, but not so much that you forget (to send me a link). You can take it with you. You have to know how it ends. I get it. Take it with you. Archive of Our Own has a bunch of download options, copy-paste that livejournal entry or ff.net chapter into a word document and convert it to a pdf, read it on your phone- print it out if you have to (90s kid style). Do whatever you have to do. We have all been there. You need caffeine. Channel every coffeeshop au you can think of and grab some coffee. Pretend you're not tempted to close your eyes and dream about your otp for the rest of the afternoon. Resist the temptation. I believe in you. (Sterek fanart by youko-shirokiba) Remind yourself this will all be over soon. The crummy obligations of your real life will soon be over, and then you can return to what really matters: reading fanfiction. I'll be right there with you, leaving comments like 'HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO ME' and suffering the exquisite pain of an otp angst fic.
The Top #3 Pop Singles Of The Week
Hello. Perfect. Sorry. This week, three major pop icons released new music videos with their current number one hits. They are completely different from one another but amazing in their own right. Obviously most of the publicity has been garnered by Adele since this is her first debut in just under 5 years. One Direction had the limelight last week and Justin Bieber's current single has been slightly out-shined but he dominated the media last month with "What Do You Mean". Which hit this week is your favorite? Sorry Why is this a fun tune? : It's very aux-cord worthy and you can totally see yourself dancing to this in the bar. It's catchy and very similar to previous songs debuted within his album. Bieber is back and stronger than ever. Maybe he's finally becoming a mature pop star and I think fans are starting to love that. Who is this song about? : Selena Gomez, duh. Pretty much this entire album is an ode to her and their previous relationship. It's not completely obvious since he doesn't personally interject anything too flashy but it was his longest and most public relationship so it has to stand for something. Should you hit the repeat button? : YES. Hello Why is this so gorgeous? : It's haunting. It's stunning. It's heart-breaking. The lovely tune turns the tables where it's actually Adele who broke someone else's heart. Recently many pop stars are no longer talking about heart break but more about apologizing, breaking other people's hearts, and learning to move on. However, Adele does it better than anyone else. Who is this song about? : Not quite sure. She's in a happy place right now but it's a single that is a bipolar opposite of what you would have found in her album 21. She's sorry and she's going to sing her beautiful tune about it. Should you hit the repeat button? : YES OVER AND OVER AGAIN. Perfect Why is this song so clever? : It is an identical copy of Swift's "Style". If Taylor Swift is going to get away with writing a song about one of her ex-lovers, there's no reason why one of her ex-lovers can't write a song about her. There are many hints throughout the video that nod towards Swift and it's genius. If you play 'Style' and 'Perfect' overtop one another, you'll notice that they are practically indistinguishable. Who is this song about? : Taylor Swift, DUH. Should you hit the repeat button? : Yes, of course.
