Really, What Is It?

I'm not sure whether or not I have mentioned my dislike for Alexa Chung previously on popYEAH!

In short, I find her to be over hyped; I don't understand what she has done to earn fame. Didn't her show only last like two years? But, she does have beautiful skin and is style icon for many of my friends. So, cheers to her for making her 15 minutes last.

Sadly, there's nothing good to say about the July 2011 cover of British Vogue. She looks awful! They totally Rumer Willis-ed her. I'll hand it to the photographer and creative director for managing to capture the unique combination of teenage boy, expressionless expression, bed head, and protruding collar bones. I really hope this is not 'Summer Chic.


We've talked about it I think, because I love Alexa! Totally pro- Alexa. But I completely agree with you here, she looks like shite. Who gave her lolly-pop head? Travesty. She's a gorgeous girl who it would take a lot of effort to make less pretty. A lot. Fail on whoever did this.

Back Down South.

Kings of Leon's new video for their song, "Back Down South". Also, the "Behind the Scenes" look from Vimeo.

Later I am going to write a blog about how the South is officially "In" for this season, and everyone remind me that this is part of it.

Baby Terminator wins Hottest in Family Award.

Everyone's all about Ah-nold these days, but I'm more interested in his son. Not to be you know, SO creepy, but I saw this kid in a magazine once, and I was like, "WOAH. How did they have this super hot kid?" Honestly, they're both attractive, but they're not stunners like Patrick Shriver Schwartzenegger. Actually he knocked off the last part of that name (something I probably would have done sometime around first grade, when I couldn't spell it) on his twitter account.

He def wins the most improved award, going from this (cute, but normal)

TO THIS. I mean, WOAH. Talk about growing pains.
I love it. Also in the top picture, that is an Algebra book in his hand. So he's...not so smart. I seem to remember taking Algebra freshman year of high school, and he is almost 18...hmm. Damn, OH WELL. Not a deal breaker for me.
So I will admit, he is flawed. Another example, he just tweeted this picture from Dylan's Candy Bar. Something about it bugs me. Maybe it's the shorts. Or the fact that he is so excited to be standing in front of candy.

The Bachelorette, Episode 2.

I love The Bachelorette. Not ashamed of it. Here are my faves so far:

Ben C., from New Orleans

West, the lawyer from South Carolina whose wife died.

J.P., Construction boss in New York.

William, a cellular phone salesmen from Ohio, father was an alcoholic.
Batman guy, or "Jeff", was so awkward in the first episode, but I honestly thought Tim from Long Island (the guy who got super drunk and passed out) might have murdered him. But now that he lived past that, I will admit that I am curious.

This is what he looks like, sorry to ruin it. 

By the way, does anyone else think it's weird they had Ashley, who is supposedly this amazing dancer who likes to dance alone on a stage with a spotlight on her...comes on stage, and you think she's going to dance with the Jabbawockeez, but no. She just slowly moves her ass from one side to the other, takes her mask off, and then is like, "Oh hey guys! It's just me. Not dancing." She dances later, but not really. Not for how much they've been promoting her as a dancer.

After watching No Rythem Nation I am all about West. He has my sense of humor, also he can't dance, but in a way that he can totally dance. He was just in it, and was way less uptight than I would have guessed.

And I know the buzz is all about Bentley, and how he doesn't really care about Ashley. But come on guys. His name is Bentley. Of course he's an asshole. I called it before the first episode even aired and I was going through their profiles.
He even has an asshole look on his face to top it all off. His face is kind of squished also, so not cute for me, but I guess I see it. Nice guy just wasn't happening there. No idea why she literally begging him to stay on the show. That was awkward.

Los Angeles is apparently so, like, over The Rapture and impending doom and all that shiz, and is now on to more timely issues, namely: the New Jalapeno Chedder McChicken.
Personally, I thought impending hell was a bit spicier, but not much.

President Snow is Chosen.

Donald Sutherland is one of my favorite actors. It's something about his voice- he just has the best voice, so commanding. Love it. This is the least of what he has done, but he absolutely made "Dirty Sexy Money".

And apparently I missed something during finals...Lenny Kravitz is going to play Cinna? I love it. Just throwing it out there. Why not? I was kind of picturing someone different, but hey. I'm open to it.

Since this is our first post on the movies, here is Lionsgate's synopsis:
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games.  Part twisted entertainment, part government intimidation tactic, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.
Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy.  If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

THE HUNGER GAMES will be directed by Gary Ross, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik.
Lionsgate will release “The Hunger Games” on March 23, 2012.
"I Am Number Four" had nothing on this movie. Nice try.

The Most Interesting Baby in the World

This commercial is hilarious. I took an advertising class last semester, so I am officially fully qualified to tell you that this commercial is HILARIOUS.

"My diaper is full of chic...when it's number two I look like number one..."
Also, not sure how they got a hold of the grandchild of The Most Interesting Man in the World, but they did. They also are the closest anyone has ever come to making crapping your pants look cool.

Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day everyone! We've had a great one, and hope that the men and women who have served our country are too!

Above is a LIFE magazine picture of a pilot of the U.S. Women’s Air Force Service by Peter Stackpole, 1943.

“A pound of pluck is worth a ton of luck.” —President James A. Garfield, the principal speaker at the first Memorial Day ceremony on May 30, 1869.

Parisian Pippa.

I think I have this same dress from Target!

Ha. I wish. Although it is kind of similar so...I feel like I am on the right track. Go me.

This is Pippa Middleton at the French Open in Paris yesterday. According to The Daily Mail, "Joined by friends, Pippa looked relaxed as she watched defending champion Rafael Nadal beat Ivan Ljubicic in his fourth round match."
I can't pull off high-fiving, so I'm always super envious of people who can. I just don't have the hand eye coordination. Super embarrassing. Why am I telling you guys this? 

Oh yeah. Point: Pippa Middleton is so cool.

Tre Tre's Got Drop.

Watching Real Housewives of New Jersey right now, and this might be super bitchy, but I kind of thought that Teresa was skinnier than she is. I mean, she's got a good body, but if you promote yourself as a "Skinny Italian"...just look at this one:
Girl got some drop. She's got a little junk in the trunk and a belly. She does look fantastic for a woman with four kids her age, but with all that talk about how skinny she is, I'm kind of like, eh...not really.
Especially when you compare it to this one. I don't even know what say about her tan. She does have that kind of sun dried tomato look about her.

As for Joe...I mean, sexy.

Jason Ritter Loyalty.

I'm pretty sure Theo and I have had the conversation about how much we love Jason Ritter. I would go see anything with him in it...even if it is "The Perfect Age of Rock 'N Roll" which is not the greatest movie title I've ever heard. It actually sounds like a movie that would be about two aging rockers to make it big or something. Nope. Here's the synopsis: 
“Two estranged childhood friends channel their talent and passion for music into a cross-country road trip that brings them face to face with their past on a quest to confront the future. Spyder (Zegers), a world famous musician whose debut album is a huge hit, retreats to his hometown after his sophomore effort flops. There he reconnects with his former friend and collaborator, Eric Genson (Ritter), now a middle school music teacher. It’s a reunion that forces the two to recall their youthful ambitions and re-examine the choices they’ve made.”
 And of course, I've liked Kevin Zegers ever since his subconscious hit Miley Cyrus with a truck in the Rock Mafia video last year.  Here's the trailer-

A little melodramatic for my taste- "most men lead lives of quiet desperation"...what the hell do women lead? HA. Quiet desperation my butt.

Well...Jason Ritter love forever!

Snickers non va bene.

TMZ is reporting that New Jersey's ambassador to Italy, Snooki, had a literal run in with the law this weekend in Florence, Italy...crashing into the back of a police car, wedging her car between that and and wall.

She is in custody, but not arrested as of yet. Reports are saying that she and Deena, who was with her at the time, had to climb out through the windows, since both doors were blocked, and all parties are uninjured.

In case you were wondering, they drive on the same side of the street as we do in Italy, so that wasn't the cause, and "sources" are saying that alcohol wasn't involved so...plain stupidity then? Shocking. I mean, that picture is the face of a responsible, not at all ditsy person.

I'm sure it will make a great episode. Pauly D will be in the background going, "Snooks, cabs 'ere!"

Royals Go Public.

The Prince of Hotness (I think in some circles he is known as Prince Harry?) was out with his cousin, Princess Eugenie at Public nightclub in London.
Do you think the nightclub choice was supposed to be ironic? Like, "Oi, I think we'll be commoners today". Yep, it probably went something exactly like that.

Love her dress. Wish I was royal, but what else is new?

The Healing Powers of Ryan Gosling.

I had a long day today, went shopping with my mother, which consisted of me sitting in Ann Taylor Loft for an hour and a half debating between different color capri pants.

I needed Ryan, and he was there for me.
One little smile, and all was better in the world. I look at his fashion sense, and I suddenly understand the importance of choosing the right pants.

Le sigh.

Extreme BLOG Makeover

popYEAH! is back and undergoing major reconstruction. Let us know what you like and dislike about the colours (yup, I went there) and the backgroud. Our longtime readers will know that the chances of Court and I ever fully agreeing on something in a reasonable amount of time are slim to none.

But, now that we're back, the blog needs a facelift! Wish us luck on this adventure.


Bieber Besos Continue.

Your prom king and queen continue to smooch it up in Hawaii...and is it getting less gross? I think it is. They're at the Leann Rimes and Eddie Cibrian level of PDA gross-ossity now. That guy in the Adidas shirt seems kind of disturbed. Probably a bodyguard or something though.

Damn I hate her. I love her top with that leopard print bag, and she has Justin Bieber just like, grabbing her and kissing her- you can see her hand is up and she's like, "Why Justin?" and he's all like, "Just because baby. Just because."

Then they belted out into a teenage angsty pop ballad love duet, and no one even thought it was weird or anything.

First Bolts Entry into Hockey Boyfriend's Club.

During tonight's game 7 Stanley Cup playoff game between the Boston Bruins and Tampa Bay Lightning, Steven Stamkos, the hottie with a naughty body above, was the talk of the commentators table for being fierce after being just totally nailed in the face with a puck. I mean, it looked horribly, horribly painful.

Just look- spoiler alert, there is a little bit of blood in the pic. You know, with the battle wound and all.
He was only gone for under five minutes and still ended up playing over 18 minutes in the game, basically his average for the other games in this series.

You've gotta love conviction in a man. And the wound doesn't hurt either- I swear, something about a dude with a battle scar. At one point, he was pulling a Channing Tatum in She's the Man and basically had what looked like a certain feminine hygiene product stuck up his nose while another line was on the ice. All I have to say? Pulling. It. Off.

They may have lost the game, but he won my heart. Le sigh.

Your Pop Prom King and Queen.


I don't know, call me old fashioned, but Justin Bieber is 17. Selena Gomez is 18, yes, but...

When did young Hollywood get old enough for PDA? And this is pretty in your face sexy time for two people who are technically teenagers.

My mom would have killed me. Also she would have never let me go on an island vacation with my pop singer beau.

So will it last? Do the two most popular kids in school ever find true love?

The Kurse of the K's Kontinues.

Sorry, had to get it out of my system.

HA totally lying, I'm going to be using that K thing until-and if, and that is a BIG if- the wedding happens.

Who do you think is going to get the wedding/engagement photos? I'm thinking highest bidder, which People is too classy to stoop to- and plus these two aren't "People" cover material for them to shell out enough dough.

So I'm thinking Life and Style, just throwing it out there. We should be seeing some sort of engagement pictures in a few weeks, maybe a month. That's why we haven't heard too many details- they're saving it for the "exclusive".

Theo and I were chatting about this blessed event, and we came to this horrifying question: what K names are even left? Here's what we have, feel free to contribute your own, we want to be prepared:

Kristopher Jr., Kameron, Kelli, Kristina, Kurt, Kumar, Kyle...and those are just the normal-ish names. There's still names like Klutch and Kharma to consider too.

Ugh Lord help us.

Dammit, I was totally wrong. People has the deets, but as I did foretell, they are juicy. Including pictures while the actual proposal was happening. Like that wasn't planned for the tabloids. Anyways, read all about it here.

And don't you dare buy that bullshit that she was so "surprised". My ass she was surprised. She probably had their ridiculously expensive curtains already picked out.

Blogs Who Smoke Crack.

Zimbio had this story, ok totally fine...I mean, not sure any celebs out there are deliberately trying to hide their hotness, but whatever. Here's my half empty with this though:

Mischa Barton? REALLY. John Mayer? REALLY. Brad Pitt? Jimmy Hoffa couldn't hide that hotness.

Mischa Barton is mentally unstable, possiprobably on drugs, and John Mayer is an ass who thinks that his facial hair/pasty combination makes him hotter, if anything.

Fail Zimbio.
