Housewife Thoughts & OC Premier

Do your favorites change?

Or are you a ride or die girl for a particular housewife, no matter what she does? I only ask because with Orange County starting, I was curious to see where my feelings lie (lay? I don’t know …).

This thought initially came to me when I was watching RHONY. I have said for years that Dorinda was my all-time favorite housewife, out of all cities. But I am just not feeling her this season, mainly because of how she’s been treating Sonja and Bethenny.

Image result for dorinda mean to sonja

Because of that, I am loving the Sonja/Bethenny friendship, which is so strange because Bethenny annihilated Sonja a couple seasons ago. I also was never a big Bethenny fan … yet I could not be more obsessed with the two! The scene where Bethenny was going over Sonja’s dating profile made me LOLOLOLOLOLOL!

My RHONY world is shaken and my RHONY favorites are changing. Things look like they’re changing in the OC as well; literally the first 20 minutes were spent discussing new homes, new friendships, and new single statuses. After watching the entire episode, I think I’m going to be Team OG, meaning Vicki, Tamra, Shannon, and Kelly, mostly Kelly. I never ever ever ever thought I would like Kelly, but I think I’m going to enjoy watching single Kelly and single Shannon together this year.

“Read between these lines” no more! 

I never like the new girls anyway, hence why I never really liked Kelly in the past. Tamra’s hiking/lawyer/party planner friend reminds me of a cross between Jeana Keough and Jacqueline Laurita. I’m not really here for her. The core four at the ropes course though,  totes here for it!

However, we have all season for feelings & favorites to change!

I guess when it all comes down to it, if you’re a true housewife fan, your likes and dislikes should change every season, heck they could change from episode to episode. I only say this because we learn from the best: THE WOMEN! How wishy-washy are they? How many friendships evolve and change? Take each franchise …

What relationships haven’t broke?

RHOC: Tamra & Shannon?
RHONY: Sonja & Ramona?
RHOBH: Lisa & Kyle?
RHOA: umm…
RHOP: Gizelle & Robyn?
RHOD: Stephanie & Brandi?

Even these friendships have been tested throughout Bravo history. Heck, Teresa’s entire family fell apart! I mean, no relationship is safe if you’re a Housewife, and I think that means we as fans have every right to change favorites and stan someone new each season.

My Natalie Wood Obsession

It all started at a bar …

Doesn’t every great story though? My husband and I were casually enjoying cocktails one weekend, when a very inebriated, old man started talking to us. He mentioned I reminded him of Natalie Wood.

Image result for who gif

The man’s friend came to our rescue pulling his buddy away, but not before he, too, agreed on the Natalie Wood comment. When I asked who she was, the two men told us she was a beautiful, famous actress who mysteriously died … and her husband, also a famous actor, was always suspected to have something to do with it, but was never charged.

I was intrigued. 

I went home and googled a picture of Natalie Wood. She was absolutely gorg and I took it as the highest compliment that someone would see a glimmer of her in me.

Image result for natalie wood gif

To me, when you look at a picture of her, she exudes just pure, old Hollywood glam! So back to that weekend: the next day I had lunch with my mom and asked if she was a Natalie Wood fan. Once started, my mom couldn’t stop talking about the actress! She went on and on about how Wood was one of the most predominate film stars of her time, and how her death was beyond tragic.

She drowned. 

While it was ruled an accident, her famous husband, Robert Wagner, was believed to have played a part in her death.

After that weekend, I fell down a rabbit hole reading all about Natalie Wood’s rise to fame,  her film carrier, her relationships with men, and her mysterious death. My favorite source on the Natalie Wood death conspiracy was from BuzzFeed Unsolved.

If you are a true crime fan, or just like really interesting stories told with humor, subscribe to this YouTube series right now. I’m serious. Take a break from reading this post, open YouTube, search “BuzzFeed Unsolved” and subscribe. Now go back to your reading, then after, lose countless hours with Ryan & Shane, learning about all the popular crimes that were never solved.

Image result for staring at computer screen gif

While always intrigued by her, I hadn’t thought about Natalie Wood since probably last summer, until the wonderful Enty dropped all his 4th of July Blind Reveals. Now, if you’re sitting there confused in regards to Enty or the blinds, take one more break from reading this, and click here. Enty is an entertainment lawyer, who uses his website to post all these bizarre scandals about celebrities, which have a high percentage of turning out to be true!

So worth the read!

Look at me helping you build your reading skills today.  Image result for smile emoji gif  Back to Natalie Wood. So Enty revealed a blind about her death back in February, very similar to the BuzzFeed video.

Scandalous!! and sad 😦

To honor the actress with not only my post, I watched West Side Story, one of Natalie Wood’s most famous films. Plus who isn’t in the mood for a 60’s musical from time to time? It did win Best Picture …

Image result for best picture west side story

… and is an important love story about acceptance; a story maybe more of us need right now.

Image result for natalie wood west side story gif

Beside West Side Story, Natalie Wood is famous for Rebel Without a Cause, alongside James Dean, who I just learned passed away this April. Don’t believe me?  Well then, this  is where I must leave you. To fall down that rabbit hole, be shocked, and then come find me to discuss … !!!

Movie of the Week: Netflix’s Set It Up

Netflix has been slaying the game lately with original content! There are the obvious choices like The Crown, Stranger Things & Unbreakable! Kimmy Schmidt. There there are the thrilling true-crime documentaries such as Making a Murderer, Evil Genius, & The Staircase. But, even their original movies have been successful, especially the spring and summer releases such as The Kissing Booth, Ibiza, Set It Up (which we’ll be discussing today).

If you didn’t catch our “Movie of the Week” post from The Kissing Booth, no worries! You can click right there —>  Movie of the Week: Netflix’s The Kissing Booth … I’m only bringing it up because a) it’s both a great movie & a great read and b) this post will be written in a similar fashion  Image result for smile emoji gif  Enjoy!!

40 Thoughts I had during the movie Set It Up:

  1. I could NOT be more excited for Glen Powell! I LOVED him in Scream Queens and Hidden Figures.
  2. I could NOT be more excited for Zoey Deutch! I LOVED her in Why Him?
  3. I could NOT be more excited for Taye Diggs. I LOVE him in everything, mainly Empire of recent.
  4. Meh, minimal excitement for Lucy Liu.
  5.   Warning … Spoilers ahead!

  6. I always love a good montage opening!
  7. Am I going to like this? I kind of feel it’s just the second coming of The Devil Wears Prada.

    Image result for devil wears prada gif

  8. Ohhhh Glen Powell has a girlfriend? Isn’t he going to date Zoey Deutch by the end of the movie?
  9. “But we’re not old enough to get married …” hahaha I kind of felt the same way when I got engaged.
  10. Oh snap did I know Pete Davidson was in this? And he’s gay in the movie? He’s super trendy right now #pariana

    Image result for pete davidson gif

  11. Was Pete Davidson’s hookup Cody from Big Brother??? Someone @ me … I’m too lazy to rewind.
  12. TITUS ANDROMEDON!!!!!!!!!!!

    Image result for titus andromedon gif

  13. Omg the elevator scene hahaha!
  14. The Kiss Cam wouldn’t go that long … but I’ll buy it for the movie.
  15. Glen’s girlfriend … Suess? Whatever her name is, I don’t like this story line … get with Zoey already!
  16. Lucy Liu just screamed, “THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH IT!” and my dogs started barking bahaha    Image result for giggle emoji gif

    Image result for set it up lucy liu

  17. I never had a salamander …
  18. Drunk Taye Diggs is great!
  19. Pete Davidson and Zoey Deutch as friends are great!
  20. Okay. Engagement party. The start of the Glenn & Zoey falling in love!

    Image result for netflix set it up

  21. I don’t know if he’s supposed to be joking with his dancing … but Glen Powell out on the dance floor is doing all of my exact moves!
  22. The bosses are getting engaged! Zoey gets to write! Glen gets a promotion! All is well!
  23. Oh noooo … Lucy Liu is actually a good person and Taye Diggs sucks; he’s going to break her heart!
  24. Every single rom com moment where everything gets ruined … and now it’s happened! Let’s see how it magically gets fixed in the end.
  25. “You’re not hard to get; you’re hard to earn.” awww all is right in the rom com world again!

    Image result for set it up netflix glen powell and zoey deutch
    Overall, I’d give it a 3/5 … maybe even a 3.5. I would have liked to see Lucy Liu end up with someone in the end, but I can appreciate the whole “She’s a strong woman who doesn’t need a man” idea, but it’s like, she’s already established and successful in her career, why can’t she have a good dude by her side too? Anyway, worth a watch with a girlfriend, some pizza, and a bottle of Rosé!

Until next time friends! 

May 19, 2018

I am having a major Royal Wedding ending hangover, but luckily I can relive it all here!

Image result for kiss gif

Unless you live under a rock, wait scratch that, I have absolutely NO IDEA and no words to even describe how you wouldn’t know the Royal Wedding was this past weekend. It was absolutely EVERYWHERE, on every channel, and on every social media. I was here for ALL OF IT!

Image result for royal wedding gif

I remember being in college and waking my boyfriend, now husband, up at who knows what time to watch William and Kate get married. I wasn’t as into it as I was this wedding (we’ll get to that shortly), but I knew it was a global big deal and wanted to be witness to it.

Image result for royal wedding gif

Since I feel closer to Meghan and Harry’s ages, plus am obsessed with The Crown, and have read multiple Royal biographies, including Diana: Her True Story, I was way more invested this time around. PLUS Meghan is AMERICAN (not to mention bi-racial and a divorcee). With we learned anything from Wallace Simpson, this wedding was going to be a HUGE HUGE deal! I also learned from Vanity Fair’s ‘Love and Royals’ issue, Meghan and I are birthday buddies, so safe to say … I’m obsessed!

Screenshot 2018-05-20 at 5.28.13 PM.png

My spread at 3:30 am the day of the wedding!

So let’s get right to it shall we?!

Favorite Hat:

Hats on hats on hats! I’m not sure if you knew this but “tradition calls for morning dress and morning dress calls for a hat” according to Vanity Fair, so hats were required at Harry & Meghan’s wedding. Boy did we see some! My favorite, however, had to be Camilla Parker Bowels.

Image result for camilla parker bowles royal wedding 2018

While she may not be my favorite person in the story of the Royal Family, England has come to embrace her as a part of it. I loved the pink, I loved it’s size, and I loved the feathery look. Her hat synced her whole look together. Speaking of…

Favorite Look:

I did NOT want to give this award to this person, but there was no arguing. The person who had the entire look from dress to hat to shoes to plus one was Amal Clooney

Image result for amal clooney royal wedding

The canary yellow was bright and festive, fit for the beautiful day. The veil was subtle and perfect, but added to her hat. And that train on her dress?! If you watched live and were tuned in to the Today Show, Hoda and Savannah couldn’t stop talking about the train of her dress. The reason I say I didn’t want to annointe Amal with best look is because she’s an obvious choice. But, as I was watching back clips of guests walking in, Amal *literally* (Chris Trager voice) looked like a sculpted model. Serena Williams and Doria Ragland were runner -ups!

Most Disappointed:

I’ll come right out and say it: Abigail Spencer.

Screenshot 2018-05-20 at 6.01.59 PM.png

Google image search her and include the words “Timeless character” and you’ll probably get something very similar to this look right here, hence I say, she should have stepped it up for the Royal Wedding!

The Dress:

I figured Meghan wouldn’t wear anything flashy because a) the Royals are more understated, b) this is her second wedding dress, and c) she’s 36. When you’re mid-thirties, marrying for the second time and it’s to the Prince of England, flash isn’t a word used to describe the dress you’ll be wearing.

Image result for meghan markle wedding dress

So with that being said, I thought her dress was boring. Now, before you get set to argue me, it was only boring in comparison to Kate and Diana’s. Kate’s dress will go down in history as my favorite wedding dress ever, but that’s because I’m a big lace fan. My own wedding dress was covered in lace.

Image result for kate diana meghan dress

However, Meghan’s dress was absolutely perfect for this wedding and for her. It was elegant, simple, graceful, and I think the term all the news outlets used was regal. Because of that, it was perfect.

img_05291.png

And that veil! It was my favorite part of her look!

Many were saying Meghan’s makeup and hair were basic. I thought so too. But, the more I went back and looked at images of her and her dress, I actually liked that she had very basic makeup. I like that she looked like herself, kind of like an everyday Meghan. I wouldn’t want her to be wearing so much makeup, she didn’t look like we’d expect. Plus, she had enough love and Markle Sparkle in her eye, she didn’t need a ton of makeup!

IMG_0541.jpg

I don’t know who I stole this picture from, but the person *literally* made her into a Disney princess.

The Ceremony:

From the moment Meghan walked in by herself with grace, to Prince Charles leading her to Harry, the ceremony was beautiful. I love love LOVED the performance of “Stand By Me” by that gospel choir. But, my absolute favorite moments from the ceremony had to be how nervous Harry looked & his sweet sweet words to her. If you don’t know what I’m talking about her, simply look it up and you’ll find a million gifs of him saying things like, “You look amazing” and “I’m so lucky.” They both looked extremely in love; you could especially see it in their eyes. Also, for as nervous as Harry looked, Meghan looked cool as cucumber and super poised, which just shows that she can be the ying to his yang!

Final Thoughts:

If I didn’t already mention it, the wedding was everything to me. I loved how much of a big deal with was, how excited the world was, and how happy both Meghan and Harry seemed. I especially loved loved loved Meghan’s evening dress and that cool car Harry drove them in.

Image result for meghan markle evening dress

I’m so unbelievably sad it’s all over, but so incredibly happy I got to witness it and had social media to share my thoughts. Speaking of sharing my thoughts, school is out in two days! Then My Hollywood Hangover will be back in full force, and is planning to be bigger and better than ever!

Super Bowl Half Time Show — I Can’t Take It Anymore

My name is Katy and I am a Justin Timberlake fan.

0052

Going strong 20 years now, and honestly, I don’t care whether you are or not. I wasn’t going to comment on his Halftime Show from last night’s Super Bowl but then I thought of two things. One, this is my blog and my outlet to share MY opinions and what I LOVE, and if you know me, you know the love I have for JT is unconditional & never ending. Two, I’m tired of seeing all the hate on social media he got for the performance, so I’m here to defend defend defend!

Image result for justin timberlake superbowl halftime

Before we get into the actual performance, let’s just realize we live in a world right now where no one can do right (which I totally get is the pot calling the kettle black because majority of my blog is me complaining about actors or making fun of reality stars, but whatever I’m getting cheese fries). Timberlake got hate as soon as it was announced he was performing, especially from Janet Jackson fans, but come onnnnnnnnnnnnnn! I take a firm stance that his 2004 SB performance with her (#nipplegate) was completely planned and if you think for a second that it was a “wardrobe malfunction” then …

Image result for kristen taekman you're delusional

UGH and the #JanetJacksonAppreciateDay trending on Twitter?? Again I say, come onnnnnnnnn! Anyway, people were going to go in on him from the beginning no matter what, so he had quite a bit to prove.

IMG_0119

Not everyone was rooting against him though. Lady Gaga (who is a QUEEN) tweeted out support for him before the performance, wishing him luck, as did Jimmy Fallon. So let’s get into the actual performance and see why he succeeded when so many said he failed.

First, the audio. People were saying it was fuzzy; I didn’t hear fuzz, but I’m sure if people instead heard total clarity, they’d have then said he sang poorly live. Second, the Prince tribute. People were saying it was inappropriate and more; yet if he hadn’t done one, people would have been upset. Last, singing Rock Your Body (aka the #nipplegate song); it’s one of his biggest dance hits, and to those people saying he smirked right at the “Janet Line” you’re reaching so far your arms HAVE TO be tired! Seriously, watch the footage.

Image result for youre reaching gif

I have seen Justin Timberlake in concert and let me tell you, last night’s show was IT. That was a straight thirteen minute Justin Timberlake concert. Just like at one of his shows, he’s dancing and singing, and straight PERFORMING his heart out,  fusing songs together, singing all your favorites, plus moving all over the arena! He did the same thing last night. From starting underneath the stadium, then waltzing down onto the field to the main stage, then having a center stage where he could perform from any side of it, to straight dancing on the field, to performing with a marching band (which we’ll get to in a minute) to straight dancing into the crowd! Sheesh, I’m just tired describing it all! But at an actual Timberlake concert, it’s two hours of all that (and no one is rooting for him to fail).

Image result for justin timberlake gif
I promise I’m almost done ranting, but I want to discuss my favorite part of the whole show (and it wasn’t changing one middle schooler’s life by taking a selfie with him, but props for JT for doing it!) THAT! MARCHING! BAND! during Suit & Tie! Did anyone catch the football reference?

Image result for marching band super bowl 52 halftime show

Get it? Halftime of a football game and a marching band is performing? Also, raise your hand if you knew that was the actual University of Minnesota marching band? Yeah, I didn’t think so.

Image result for marching band super bowl 52 halftime show

Well, if you’ve made it this far through the post, maybe I’ve started to convince you that his performance was outstanding and deserves credit, not criticism. If not, maybe these famous voices can help sway you because JT SLAYED AND KILLED SUPER BOWL LII!

“And the actor goes to …” 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards Recap (Pocket-Sized)

“We are living in a watershed moment in time and as we march forward with active momentum and open ears, let’s make sure we are leading the charge with empathy and diligence, because fear and anger never win the race.” — Kristen Bell, 2018 SAG Awards Host

Image result for kristen bell gif

Ahh yes, another award show where actors toot their own horns by giving awards out to one another. However, here I am watching, but if I must watch, then I must critique! Don’t worry though, my critiques won’t be too tiresome; this is only a small batch, pocket-sized post! First up is Kristen Bell. She’s quoted above because she hosted the award show and was actually the show’s first ever host.  I just love love love love, love her so much. For all her great moments from the show, click here!

What I Learned

The thing I like most about the SAG Awards is it’s actors recognizing and awarding actors, which has to be a huge compliment right? I can only imagine if I went to an award ceremony for teachers, with the awards being presented by fellow teachers. That would have to be an extremely large pill to swallow because teachers do not like to credit other teachers (not all, some, okay most, hopefully I’m not offending all my teacher readers right now; please don’t leave). But it’s easier, probably in any profession, to celebrate one’s own acheivements, rather than recognize others.

Image result for toot my own horn gif

“My students scored this score on the state test” or “Look at this wonderful email a parent sent me telling me what a great job I do.” I’m sure actors are the same: “My movie made this much money” or “Look at the great review my movie received.” So, I would imagine winning an SAG Award is a big deal because people who usually want to brag on themselves this time want to brag on you!

Image result for sag award winners

Shout out to some of my favs on winning: This Is Us, Sterling K. Brown, Claire Foy, and Nicole Kidman!

What I Loved

Mother, freaking, girl power. I knew that Bell being the first ever host as a woman was a huge deal, and I knew the show was branded as “female-powered.” But, it wasn’t until the next day I realized, “Oh wow, only females presented!” It was really awesome to see; read more here!

What I Remembered

Still disappointed in myself as I have yet to see any of the films nominated this awards season; I’m such a failure.

Image result for movies nominated for best picture 2018

Fashion

I guess the “let’s all wear black” protest was over because there were many hues to found on the SAG red carpet. My picks for best dressed went to Kristen Bell (her red carpet look; she had quite a few wardrobe changes as host’s normally do, but actually looked amazing in all of them!), Nicole Kidman, Samara Weaving, and Yara Shahidi (pantsuit with a train for the WIN!)

Image-1 (1).png

My favorite looks of the night!

 

 

I really hate to have a worst dressed list because I get it, “fashion is art” and shit but low and behold here they are. Millie, you may be thirteen, but you can’t wear your Chucks to an award show; sorry, you can’t. I don’t even have to explain why I hate Kate’s dress, I mean you have eyes right? Same with Kate Nash. Maybe it was an off night for girls named Kate. Ugh, and Lupita almost made my list for best dressed until the camera panned down to the bottom of her dress. #nope (Her body looked sick though!)

img_0090-e1516676233809.png

Sorry ladies, not my favorite.

Lastly, why was Morgan Freeman wearing a hat?!

Moving Forward.

We have Oscar nominations tomorrow and the Grammys on Sunday! I love awards season!

Pocket-Sized Post: T. Swift Endgame Video

Endgame by Taylor Swift feat. Future & Ed Sheeran

Welcome to the first “Pocket-Sized Post” on My Hollywood Hangover! Basically this just means I’m too lazy to write a drawn out post regarding my topic, and let’s be honest, some of you aren’t here to read a full post either.

On the first small batch edition, we’ll be discussing Taylor’s new video. “Endgame” was initially my favorite song on Reputation so I was totes excited for the new video. (For more thoughts on the album click here: …Ready For It? Reputation Review)! From Miami, to Tokyo, to London, here are a few things I learned from the video:

Taylor drinks now.

Image result for endgame music video

I get it; she’s 28 and MORE than old enough to have a few drinks. Plus she mentions drinking and whisky on the new album. But, won’t she always seem like the sweet, young, innocent Taylor to us all? But the video does seem like she’s shoving the fact that she enjoys a cocktail down our throats, like “Heeeey! Look at me! I’m all grown up!”

At the same time, she’s almost 30, so do you girl!

Katy Perry was not there.

But was totes rumored to be in the video, right … to prove they mended things? Did I just not catch her? If reports come out later that Katy is in the video, just hidden somewhere I’ll be pissed because I was searching hard for her.

Taylor wears a nude lip.

Yet she’s wearing it AT THE EXACT MOMENT THE SONG IS QUOTING “the proof from [her] red lips.”

Image result for endgame music video

She rocks many different hair styles.

See above gif. LOVE LOVE LOVE the straightened, deep part, look. And as always, Taylor looks awesome with her hair styled any way … except when it looks drowned … as in her scenes with Future.

Overall … I liked it.

Keep giving us something to talk about Taylor girl!

75 Years of the Golden Globes!!

Before reading, please go check out the updated About Me Page — it’s SO 2018!

You. Guys. The Golden Globe Awards were basically the inspiration behind MHH. Okay, the Golden Globe Awards AND housewife reunions, but what I mean in this is I LIVE for the award show! It’s my very favorite time of the year and why wouldn’t it be the best award show? Not only do these awards support BOTH film and television, but the GG aren’t as stuffy as the Oscars but not as eccentric as the Grammys. PLUS, all the celebrities get endless bottles of champagne.

Image result for golden globes drunk gif

Image result for golden globes drunk gif

First, the Awards:

Best Actor TV Drama:
Sterling K. Brown! His role as Randall is not only one of my favorites, Sterling is one of my favorites simply as a person. Seriously look up any interview he’s done; he’s a great human!

Best TV Series Drama:
I watch four out of five of these shows. Yet, the award goes to the one show I don’t watch. (roll eye emoji) I knoooow the premise of The Handmaid’s Tale is important in this time in our world and is also entertaining, but why couldn’t one of the other four win?

Best Actor & Best Actress Drama:
Gary Oldman and Frances McDormand winning these awards makes me want to see these two films that. much. more!

At the end of the day, congratulations goes out to ALL the winners!!

Second, the Flims:

I haven’t seen one movie nominated this year (I know, very unlike me); it’s probably because I watch so much television. However, my goal for the next two months is to see all the films nominated. I did want to just quickly comment on them based off the short clips shown on the Golden Globes.

Image result for films nominated for golden globes 2018
The Greatest Showman — I love musicals and I loved Hugh Jackman in Les Mis! Jackie and Claudia Oshry (my Morning Breath girls) say you HAVE to see this film!
The Post: — I love Hanks, Streep, & Spielberg, plus a good historical drama. I really want to see this film.
The Disaster Artist — So this is a true story? Wow this looks like the craziest role I’ve seen of Franco. I’m so intrigued by this; need to see.
The Shape of Water — My first thought, weeks back, on this film was, “Too weird!” But I’m intrigued seeing as it’s set in the past, plus is giving me major Stranger Things vibes.
I, Tonya — WHY HAVE I NOT SEEN THIS YET, DAMNIT?!
Dunkirk — I originally wanted to see this for the same reason I’m sure you wanted to: Harry Styles. But, as I mentioned above, I enjoy historical films so yes I’ll be watching this.
Get Out — Oh, I guess I did see one nominated film and this is it! Get Out is so so so so so so complex, intriguing, thrilling, shocking, and good!
Lady Bird — One of my good friends can not say enough good things about this movie, so okay, T … I’ll check it out just for you!
Call Me By Your Name — Literally have never heard of this movie. Have you?
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri — Intriguing. Want to see.

Third, the Fashion:

Unless you were living under a rock watching the Golden Globes, you should have noticed all the black on the Red Carpet. This was part of the Time’s Up Movement and I thought it was really cool that Hollywood came together for it in the way they did.

Image result for golden globes 2018 red carpet

Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake got my vote for Best Dressed Couple (& no it’s not just because I’m obsessed with the both of them). The interviews they gave on the Red Carpet were so amazingly supportive of one another; they should be an inspiration to all Hollywood couples!

Image result for justin timberlake and jessica biel 2018 golden globes

Viola Davis’s hair and necklace!

180107195256-27-golden-globes-red-carpet-2018-exlarge-916.jpg

Overall, my favorite fashion moments go to Kerry Washington, Margot Robbie, Claire Foy, and Catherine Zeta-Jones

And finally, Final Thoughts:

  • “When my cheek is against yours everything else melts away and that is love” — Nicole to Keith; so sweet!
  • Allison Jennings recognizing Tonya Harding; so awkward (Tonha plotted to break her opponent’s knees!)
  • James Franco pushing Tommy Wiseau out of the way while giving his speech; so funny!
  • Almost every acceptance speech; so typical (ahem ahem preachy)!
  • Halle Berry’s long hair; so not here for it!
  • Oprah; I so miss her show! It was my favorite thing to watch everyday after school!
  • Oprah 2020!!!!
  • “It’s taken 25 years, give me a minute!” Yasss Guillermo del Toro!!

…Ready For It? Reputation Review

Taylor Swift’s sixth studio album has been out almost a month and just became available to stream.

While I hadn’t planned on reviewing it on the blog, the more I listen to it, the more I can’t stop talking or thinking about it. So, “baby let the games begin…”

  • …Ready For It?

Perfect song to open the album. Perfect song to dance to while getting ready for a night out. This song just screams “Chapter 1” of something bigger to come (whether that’s the rest of these songs or a fun night out you’ll talk about for years), “…Ready For It?” just starts it (whatever it is) off right!

  • End Game

This. Is. My. Favorite. Song. On. The. Entire. Album! for so many reasons. I love that Future & Ed are on it; they have such an opposite sound which brings for two interesting voices into one song. Not only that but the song just makes. me. dance! It hits you like BANG!

  • I Did Something Bad

I want to see Tay Tay perform this song with a marching band playing in the background; can’t you see it during the chorus? This is a song I classify as a “banger” and keeps the momentum going after “End Game.” Brilliant lyric moment: “They’re burning all the witches even if you aren’t one/so light me up!” #byehaters

  • Don’t Blame Me

This is probably my second favorite song on the album. Lyrically, I love it, especially the chorus because it’s exactly how I feel about my husband. It also makes you want to just body roll, body roll, body roll all down the hall. Cut to about 3:05 into the song: TAYLOR’S VOICE IS COMPLETE FIRE!

  • Delicate

One of my favorite lines from the whole album: “We can’t make any promises now can we babe, but you can make me a drink.”

  • Look What You Made Me Do

While I am IN LOVE with this music video, “Look What You Made Me Do” is getting to feel like “Shake It Off.” I’ll listen to it if it’s on, I’ll sing to it, and it can get me to dance; however, it’s been overplayed to the point that I’d rather listen to something else on the album first.

  • So It Goes…

Honestly haven’t listened to this song more than once due to the fact that I have so many other favorites … what are YOUR thoughts here?

  • Gorgeous

First, royalty is on this track in the form of Blake Lively & Ryan Reynold’s daughter at the beginning. I love Taylor’s voice on this song; it’s super fun to sing to.

  • Getaway Car

I know this song is A LOT of people’s favorite, however, not a favorite for me. I definitely don’t hate it; it’s just not one of my favorites.

  • King of My Heart

I lump this song in with “So It Goes…” and “Getaway Car.” I don’t listen to it much because I love the others more; though I don’t particularly hate it or love it. It will probably be one of those songs I’ll discover months later and wonder why I didn’t love it from the beginning. The beat is unique though and I really like where the song goes around 2:34.

  • Dancing With Our Hands Tied

Third favorite song to dance to after “End Game” and “I Did Something Bad.” It proves that the album isn’t even close to being over yet.

  • Dress

What does your mother say about these lyrics Taylor?

  • This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

There is SO much I love about this song: analyzing who it’s about, the champagne and Gatsby references, the distinctive beat, the chanty chorus, her toast to her ‘real’ friends/her baby/her mama, and lastly, her scary cackle when discussing forgiveness.

  • Call It What You Want

Of all the early releases, this was my favorite. The “my baby’s fit like a daydream/walking with his head down/I’m the one he’s walking to” line is so catchy. Plus I appreciate her honesty regarding hiding away and the intensity of her relationship … call all of that what you want haters; the new Taylor tells us she could care less.

  • New Year’s Day

Anyone catch Swifty play this song acoustically during a Scandal episode? That is where I first fell in love with it. I am SO curious to know who this song is about; I’m sure there is some article somewhere with hard evidence of who it is (someone find that for me please). It’s a perfect ending to the album; soft, light, feathery.

The MHH reviews are in! This is my favorite Taylor album of them all!

Each song is better than the previous. Each song is different, a jam, and fun to not only dance to but analyze. If I had to criticize something, it’s the fact that I don’t hear much of a “girl power” message. I hear a lot of how she’s obsessed with her relationship, and was completely burned by people. Where is the message to tell all your fans who adore you to be strong, forget what others say about you, and stand on your own two feet without a man? She’s a bit, “I got a boy, I got a boy, look at how great my boy is, oh, and people were mean to me.”

Before I start getting all the TS hate mail, I’ll be the first to admit that I 100% relate to the fact that I would put out the exact same message Taylor did with this album; I would write about nothing but how great the person I’m with is, and how horrible everyone else treated me. So as the song goes, I don’t blame her.

I can’t write an honest review without playing devil’s advocate a bit, but real talk I FREAKING LOVE THIS ALBUM …maybe even more than Spencer Pratt …

And if not, I’m at least a close second.
