Week That Was (Sept 30 – Oct 6)

Full disclosure – I totally forgot about wrapping up the week this week. When I wracked my brain to update y’all on the big pop culture news that happened, I realised no big pop culture news happened. A tragedy happened, and America still has guns. I guessed they missed the memo that banning guns tends to end mass shootings and murder. Then again, if Sandy Hook didn’t change anything in the US, nothing will. But I’m just here for the celebs. Eh. But really, we all need our bright shining lights of joy to…

The Week That Was (Sept 1 – Sept 7)

Sooooo I’ve kind of dropped the ball on these weekly recaps haven’t I? My bad. I understand that you may have no idea what’s happened in the world of pop culture over the last few weeks (if ONLY you could find this info out elsewhere…like being bombarded with it from all angles at all times and from all devices…) so I’m here to make it right. Today I present to you a mammoth wrap-up of pretty much anything I missed recently with some very colourful language thrown in…

The Week That Was (July 15 – 21)

How to wrap up this week of pop culture gossip? Put it this way, it was a little gross, a little offensive, and overall…pretty sad. Let’s do this. Game of Thrones came back, and in the land Down Under, it was a disaster. There were tech glitches that left people unable to watch the premiere. In the year 2017. That was a thing that happened. But I didn’t care because I stopped watching two episodes before Season 6 ended. I know, I know. Apparently eeeeeverything happens right after that and yet I still have…

The Week That Was (July 1-7)

Gossip enthusiast? Article skimmer? Pop culture casual dater (you dip in every now and then but don’t get too ‘deep’)? If you ever find yourself struggling for water-cooler chat while the young people around you bemuse you when they say names you can’t even decipher and you actively seek out TV spoilers without bothering to watch the latest hyped series (that the entire fucking world is seemingly watching simultaneously), so you can have a fucking sound-byte to contribute to awkward social situations then BOY, do I have an update for you! Before…

Beybies

The world today feels…different somehow. You can sense it right? There’s a more vibrant glow in the light. The crisp air is crisper and fresher than any other day. It’s like everything is clearer, more vivid, brighter somehow. And above all, there’s an overwhelming joyful vibe permeating all our collective senses. And on Twitter. It’s happening. Or, it has happened. And They’re here. Or, nearly here. Our Queen is on the cusp of bringing two more blessed lives into this world and we are all the more better…

100 Observations I Have Made In The Last 12ish Months

You guys, this is my ONE HUNDREDTH POST on aphroisms and a LOT has happened in the almost-12 months since I started the blog. I mainly mean in the world of pop culture/the world in general, but I’d like to think there was also some personal growth and self-awareness thrown in. Come with me on the journey. I wrote 99 blogs. Survivor and Real Housewives epitomise everything great about reality TV and it seems like you guys agree. If recapping shows could be a full-time job, I would do it in a heartbeat even…

Behold, The Queen

I had a whole other post written, recapped as I watched The Grammys, but then Album Of The Year was announced and I realised, again, that it was a load of fucking bullshit and they don’t deserve any words. Instead, I want to revisit every moment of Her glory today. And for the record, others have said and will continue to say it better than I ever could, so. Finally, no hate to Adele. In fact, I called it months ago, that she would give up AOTY if she won it over Bey. Watch her do just that…

35 Reasons I Am Thankful For Beyoncé

Today, September 4th 2016, is Queen Bey’s 35th Birthday. It doesn’t seem right to let it pass without celebrating in some way or another, especially what she has given us (the world), this year. This awful shit-fest of a year has been more bearable because of Formation. Because of her Superbowl performance-bomb. Because of her domination of the VMAs with the best performance they have ever and will ever see. But most importantly, because of Lemonade. So this year especially, I am grateful for Beyoncé. For every reason, but for these in particular. In…

The BeyMAs

At the time of starting this is post, the telecast hasn’t even started in Australia yet. But I’ve already seen Blue Ivy in a damn ballgown with kicks and braids and have had my damn LIFE. It’s not even 10am. But I am DONE. The show has started. A lot is going on. I will be recapping as I watch so bare with my *emotions*. I have some already. First up, cringing irritation. Key and Peele are embarrassing themselves and me and I want it to end. Rihanna has already done an entire song…
