‘NSYNC at Coachella (a Pocket-Sized Post …)

Yet, that is what we are here to discuss right now: boy bands. Being thirty years old, I proudly admit I’m an early 2000’s boy band fan. I was 12 years old when ‘NSYNC’s No Strings Attached album was released, and at the time, nothing else mattered in my life but their music.

Yet, ‘NSYNC dissolved and everyone blames Justin. Well, what can I say, I’m a #JTDayOne as shown in the following evidence: Top 5 Celebs … who made your list?Super Bowl Half Time Show — I Can’t Take It Anymore, and my cellphone wallpaper. I’ve seen him solo twice now, and he forever will do no wrong in my eyes.

But before there was Justin, there was ‘NSYNC . While I love love love to see them back in the news, back on stage, anything to get them relevant again, the reunion at Coachella with Ariana didn’t sit well with me for a few reasons. Let’s dive deeper …

a) First and foremost, I hate the fact that all this shade is being thrown at JT because he wasn’t there; he was just coming off of his final show for the Man of the Woods Tour (115 shows people!). When the rumors started that the guys may be reuniting, I about 95% knew Justin wouldn’t be there, yet I held out some hope because …

b) ‘NSYNC is not ‘NSYNC if they aren’t all together. Did they sound amazing, especially with Ari’s backup? HELL YES! But it just seemed broken, and to me, ‘NSYNC was always always always be a cut above the rest. However, with it only being four of them, it seemed sad and fractured (as does any band that reunites without full members).

c) Lastly, they’re old and I get this. I’m old. Shoot, even Justin is old. He slipped and hurt his knee, plus had bruised vocal cords during this last tour. But seeing a young Ariana Grande grinding on old man JC, and then on Joey, who has a teenage daughter, was too awkward to watch.

But let’s get to the main point of all of this …

Deep down, it kills me that ‘NSYNC is no longer together and is no longer on top. I hate that the media has to pit them against Justin, even if there really isn’t bad blood (he posted a congrats to them on his IG!!). I hate that they’re old men, even if they can still sing the shiz out of songs. You guys, for me, with ‘NSYNC … ??

And I will never be over the fact that the era of this huge, precious, musical impact on my life is not the same as it was when I first experienced it. But, what kills me most of all? THIS has taken their place ….

Emmy Recap

Yesterday and all day today, every time I scroll Instagram, E! shares another photo from Monday’s 70th Primetime Emmy Awards. So I thought, I’ll write a recap, and here we are.

What I learned from watching the Emmys is that I clearly don’t watch as much TV as I thought I did … or I just don’t watch what is important. I was so beyond bored as I sat through all the Comedy and Limited Series awards. I don’t watch a single one of those shows. I get my comedy from Real Housewives and a Parks & Recs Netflix binge … the only limited series I watched this year was Waco, which I saw was nominated like once and lost.

Soooooo, what I’m getting at is … you were looking for my thoughts on the first two hours of awards?

One thing we can discuss? Fashion!! Some of my favorite looks included Emilia Clarke, Sandra Oh, and Ellie Kemper.Image result for emilia clarke emmys 2018Image result for sandra oh emmysImage result for ellie kemper emmys 2018

My favorite couple looks were ScarJo & Colin … and obviously Jessica & Justin! Which, now that I see them side by side, maybe they were my favs because they were so similar??

As for bad fashion? I was NOT here for Regina King as a highlighter, Tracee Ellis Ross as a teen girl’s comforter, or Chrissy Ty-ginn’s high neck chain gang look. Not posting pics because they were truly heinous (name that movie!).

Side bar: Why did I spell CT’s name like that? Haven’t you heard?? We’ve been saying it wrong all these years … along with Ariana Grande’s name! Plus, Burt and Ernie are gay together, and Kylie Jenner just tried milk in her cereal for the first time … LIKE, WHAT IS THE WORLD WE LIVE IN AND THE BULLS*** THAT MAKES THE NEWS?! That I then must report on …      Image result for side smile gif

Moving on … I don’t know if it was the wine I was drinking, but I thought Colin and Michael were really funny, although some jokes and skits didn’t land (especially Maya Rudolph & Fred Armisen). In fact, much of the show felt like SNL skits … but honestly, I didn’t mind because I love Saturday Night Live. Clearly I have good taste because it won it’s 65th Emmy during the award show (at least, google said it was the show’s 65th award).

It wasn’t until about two & a half hours in that I started getting excited. That was about the time Darren Criss won for American Crime Story and John Mulaney won for his stand-up! And if those two awards didn’t wake you up …… did the unexpected proposal??? You can read the whole story here! As cynical as I usually am, I thought it was super sweet!

Finally, just as I was about to turn the show off, I started to hear Game of Thrones, Westworld, This is Us, and The Crown. My category has arrived!

Seriously, I was like a proud momma seeing Peter Dinklage, Thandie Newton, and Claire Foy win! Then … Game of Thrones taking Best Drama Series?!

I mean, I hoped, but you don’t take over a year, almost two, off and still win do you? YOU DO! I’m currently reading the second book in the series in prep for 2019 and just so I still have some GOT in my life (I also play the theme at any jukebox bar I can find!). Bend the knee, it’s still the best on TV!

I live tweeted the show; always go check me out on Twitter (find links when you scroll alllllll the way to the bottom of the blog –> IG is there too!). On deck this week is #RHOC & #RHOD, plus the hubs and I started watching Mayans M.C., the Sons spin off, and I plan to watch Sierra Burgess soon too!
