I take back what I said about Camila Cabello’s solo career

When Camila Cabello announced she was leaving Fifth Harmony in December, I wrote a post in which I said she basically made a mistake and left the group way too soon, because they weren’t big enough yet and she should have stuck with them for a bit longer as it would have been a better launchpad for her solo career. Turns out I was wrong and her solo stuff is amazing.

13 Reasons Why is fantastic and doesn’t deserve all this criticism

13 Reasons Why was released all in one go on Netflix at the end of March and has heavily criticised for “glamorising suicide” and for its unflinching portrayals of sexual assault, and the haters, mostly parents, schools and academics, are still talking about it weeks later. I’m not much of a binge watcher but I finished the last nine episodes this weekend, which is a testament to how good it is, and now I feel like I need to defend it.

American Music Awards: Best & Worst Dressed

You know I love a good red carpet! There were some absolutely gorgeous outfits at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles last night – my favourite was Ariana Grande‘s crop top and white high-waisted trousers. I want this look!

Met Gala 2016: Best & Worst Dressed

I don’t really remember when the Met Gala became such a big celeb thing but it is, and the fashion is under a microscope on an even more ridiculous scale than the Oscars! I honestly don’t understand why celebs go and put themselves under this pressure to wear something fabulous, something that stands out and something that is in keeping with the theme.

Grammys 2016: Best & Worst Dressed

yes1

Last night was all about the 2016 Grammy Awards but the show is so long and with so many categories that I personally find the red carpet far more exciting. You can usually depend on the Grammys for some divisive fashion choices but I generally liked everything this year – especially this gorgeous look from Taylor Swift. People have been bashing her new bob but I think she looks fantastic.

There were some crazy outfits from absolute nobodies, so they are not included. I have a ton of best dressed and just a few worst dressed which weren’t totally horrible, just a bit naff. The standard is high this year.

Here are my picks:

The Big Short: Film Review

short1

I did not expect a film about the financial crisis to be interesting and entertaining, but The Big Short manages to do both thanks to a terrific cast including Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt and a script which tries hard to make the financial jargon simple.

MTV Video Music Awards: Best & Worst Dressed

no1

You can always count on the MTV Video Music Awards for interesting red carpet fashion. This is where the celebs are their most daring, controversial and damn right sexy/sleazy (however you see it). To be honest, I found it quite hard to pick best dressed because I didn’t like most of what I saw, especially Miley Cyrus‘.

Can Taylor Swift please stop with the celebrity guests

tay1

Now, I love Taylor Swift but I’m so sick of her shows becoming like a parade of her celebrity pals. The whole purpose of a surprise guest is to, duh, surprise, but it’s got to the stage now where if she doesn’t bring on somebody epic it’s disappointing. Okay, so you never know who is going to be and some are generally pretty shocking (Julia Roberts anyone?) but still, I have had enough.

Taylor Swift at British Summer Time: Review

024

Unless you have been living in a hole this weekend, you know Taylor Swift brought the 1989 World Tour to London’s Hyde Park. It is her biggest audience to date – 65,000 to be exact, which is a hell of a lot of peeps. And she did not let that overwhelming amount of faces affect her performance. She brought it and was so entertaining.

Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood video is going to be amazing!!

taylor

When I first heard that Bad Blood was going to be a single, I was shocked because Taylor Swift has so many other single-worthy songs on 1989. I like the song a lot, but it definitely isn’t my favourite. However, I am SO excited for the music video as Taylor has nailed the promo for it – it doesn’t come out for more than a week and these posters are creating so much hype – they hint at a movie quality action movie vibe, a kick-ass revenge theme and there is an epic cast.
