Contra You, You, and You

At some point, I swear that I’m going to become consistent with my posting, but it may not be until I get a new job…Waaaah X-O

Let’s get it!

Hot Mess #1: Donald Trump’s campaign for being completely oblivious

contra23n-1-web

There’s always a story that brings the widest of smiles to my face. This week, it’s one of two sisters who completely trolled a Trump campaign event.

After being asked by her younger sister to attend Eric Trump’s speech in Salisbury, NC, Annie Cardelle (pictured above) was originally against the idea. Luckily for us, Annie not only decided to attend the event, but also thought of the best way possible to show her lack of enthusiasm for the entire Trump clan.

Taking a black Sharpie, Annie wrote “Latina Contra Trump” on a white t-shirt and posed with her brilliance for the rest of the evening. She and her sister even took a picture with Eric Trump, shirt fully visible.

Honestly, I just think it’s funny that a 23 year-old got away with this. I also find it funny that not one person at the event realized what Annie’s shirt really said. #thebest

Hot Mess #2: Billy Bush for being let go from NBC

tdy_take_billy_160822-today-inline-vid-featured-desktop

Last Monday, Billy Bush was officially fired from NBC for his part in the video featuring Donald Trump speaking poorly about women. Like I said, I have always loved Billy, but even I cannot support such idiotic and disgusting behavior from men.

Now that he will no longer be appearing on the Today Show, Billy has started to pack up his NYC townhouse with plans to return to LA…

You know, I would say, “Poor Billy” except for the fact that he’s the first cousin of Dubya. The entire Bush clan is rich, and well, I just can’t feel THAT bad for the wealthy…#Sorry. Not to mention, everyone in LA is a hot mess and will eventually “forgive” Billy once this Trump craziness dies down. He’ll have another job on a different network in the next couple of years.

p.s. I’m also hearing that Billy settled his contract with NBC for $6-10 million. Talk about a serious punishment…

Hot Mess #3: Amy Schumer for just being a mess

Screen-Shot-2016-10-21-at-3.17.55-PM-1477077564-640x346.png

Like I always say, there’s always one.

On Friday, actress and comedian Amy Schumer decided to release her parody of Beyonce’s Formation. Formation was the lead single off of Bey’s critically acclaimed album Lemonade, which celebrates all things Black.

Although Amy’s music video was meant to be funny, there was absolutely nothing funny about it. Matter of fact, the entire video left me very much confused. From the dirty clothes being worn by Schumer and Goldie Hawn to the Native American extras, I, in the words of Vivica A. Fox, just didn’t get it…

Without question, this was one parody that fell completely flat. Try again, Amy.  Try again.

p.s. Can the younger generation please leave the legends out of their mess? Goldie Hawn is too much of a Hollywood treasure to be in this trash. Sigh.

Hot Mess #4: Bow Wow and Soulja Boy for joining forces

161023-soulja-boy-bow-wow-ig-800x600

Switching complete gears, let’s talk about the recent announcement that Bow Wow and Soulja Boy will be releasing a joint album titled “Ignorant Sh*t.”

14659252_204711723290189_5946096786375442432_n

Not too long ago, Bow Wow claimed that he was retiring from music. I guess that was a complete lie seeing as though this Soulja Boy collaboration is scheduled to drop tomorrow.

Honestly, I don’t know what to think about this. The album already sounds a mess and it hasn’t even been released. For now, I’ll just try not to hate on anyone’s hustle.

Anyways, does anyone else remember this Bow Wow, Soulja Boy classic? —> Marco Polo

O-M-G, the best…lol

Hot Mess #1: Donald Trump for just being Donald Trump

donald-trump

Last week, a video from 2005 was leaked of Mr. Trump and NBC’s Billy Bush having a conversation about women on the set of a soap opera. Even though the men are off camera for the majority of the video, they can clearly be heard exchanging crass comments about women. Trump even goes on to mention how he hit on one woman (now identified as Entertainment Tonight‘s Nancy O’Dell) before being rejected saying, “I did try and f— her. She was married.”

Leaked Donald Trump video

Unfortunately, this Trump comment was not the worst in a series of unforgiveables. Throughout the conversation, Trump goes on to claim that being a celebrity has allowed him to have his way with women and that he can grab them “by the p—y.” #Gross

Honestly, we all knew that Trump was a dirty dog. During his entire campaign, he has made one offensive comment after another, so why should anyone be surprised?

Hot Mess #2: Billy Bush for just being a mess

billybush-news.jpg

When I was younger, I watched NBC’s Access Hollywood religiously. The show not only allowed me to get all of my celeb news/gossip for the week, but it also helped me to realize my passion for everything entertainment.

I was so impressed by Nancy O’Dell and Billy Bush’s chemistry as co-hosts, and wanted to be just like them (I sound like a child lol)….Anyways, having Billy Bush be a part of this hot mess story surrounding Donald Trump is MOST disappointing.

Do better, Billy.

tumblr_nod1fdd63q1rrx588o1_400

p.s. Maybe I could forgive Billy if he hadn’t also defended Ryan Lochte’s behavior in Brazil not that long ago. Now, I’m questioning his judgment and character as a person… We’ll see what decision NBC makes on whether or not to end his contract. Right now, it’s not looking too good for the veteran anchor.

cousins7

FUN FACT: Billy Bush is the first cousin of President George W. Bush. See the resemblance?

Apparently, Billy didn’t publicize this relation  in favor of his growing television career. Too bad distancing himself from the Bush family still didn’t keep him from being an ass. #sideeye

Hot Mess #3: Kaleigh McEnany for being annoying

mcenany-headshot-final

Yesterday, in an attempt to take the focus off of the leaked video mentioned above, Donald Trump held a press conference featuring former President Bill Clinton’s rape accusers. Most informed journalists saw both the conference and its timing (just before the second presidential debate) as a way for Trump to put someone else in hot water besides himself.

Actually, most people seemed to understand what Trump was doing other than Kaleigh. Like a chihuahua, Kaleigh would not shut up at the pre-debate panel about how the press conference was not a “stunt” and how Clinton’s accusers should be heard.

tumblr_nj6c9dRduy1qk08n1o1_500.gif

No matter how much Kaleigh’s fellow CNN panelists tried to explain that Trump’s act was disingenuous, the poor blonde just couldn’t comprehend.

Personally, I didn’t think there was anyone worse than Fox’s Tomi Lahren, but I guess I was wrong…

Side note: The topics of sexual assault and rape are very important and Clinton’s accusers have every right to tell their stories. However, it’s probably best if it’s treated more like a very serious conversation and less like a sideshow at a circus.

Hot Mess #4: The presidential debate for making everyone uncomfortable

142777-eight

If you did not watch the debate last night, you probably did yourself a HUGE favor.

anderson-cooper-martha-raddatz-presidential-debate-moderators.png

CNN’s Anderson Cooper and ABC’s Martha Raddatz served as moderators and were relentless in their questions for Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. From discussing Trump’s  disturbing comments about women to Mrs. Clinton’s email scandal, the room felt uncomfortable even through the TV for the first 45 minutes. Not to mention, Bill Clinton was also in the audience and behind him were his rape accusers…Yikes.

The Debate Moderators Went In Hard And People Loved It

To be honest, the whole thing was #teamtoomuch.

Sometimes, I just don’t even have the capacity to accept that this messiness is what our presidential election has turned into. Everyone is a liar or a fraud or a cheater, and I just can’t handle.

Anyways, I know the world has its eyes on us, and our country is just the epitome of a hot mess.

Sigh…

A lot has happened this past week, and I really don’t know where to begin… My brain is starting to hurt, and I’m wondering if that’s from the latest news reports or from my lack of sleep… Alas, trying to work a campus recruitment job while being understaffed is proving to be rough on my sleep schedule, but I am determined to write! lol

Okay, let’s get it…

Hot Mess # 1: The 2016 Emmys for not including Christina Grimmie

how-to-watch-the-emmys-d2c60f62-c863-4ca0-a6e6-6cc06edbe7a0

Last night marked the 68th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. All of our favorite stars were out in full force to honor the achievements of those in television, including host Jimmy Kimmel.

Although there were plenty of happy highlights (i.e. several people of color, including Sterling K. Brown and Rami Malek, took home major awards in the supporting and lead actor categories), there was also one major “oversight” by the Television Academy.

During the In-Memoriam segment, the late singer, Christina Grimmie, was left out of the montage. Christina was the Youtube sensation turned The Voice finalist who was fatally shot in the head by a fanatic back in June.

landscape-1465753884-christina-grimmie-humane-society-rescue-gala.jpg

Noticing her absence during the clip, outraged fans immediately took to social media. In response to the backlash, the Emmys released a statement explaining that there wasn’t enough time to include everyone in the montage and that a complete list of those who have passed could be found on their website.

In all honesty, I think it’s pretty wack of the Emmys to exclude Grimmie. She was definitely one of the most memorable contestants ever on The Voice and was a force on Youtube. Not to mention, The Voice actually won an award last night for Best Reality-Competition Program, which again begs the question, “Why no Grimmie?” One would think that the show’s win coupled with the horrific details around Grimmie’s murder would be enough to get her into the live montage.

Needless to say, I am a little disappointed in the show’s producers. Maybe they’ll get it right next year.

On a brighter note, if you’d like to see the complete list of Emmy winners,

Jimmy Kimmel was also a great host. Shout out to Jimmy. 🙂

Hot Mess # 2: Tori Kelly for magically popping up on every awards show…

003.jpg

Now, I’ve been thinking this for quite some time, but how is it that a girl with no hits is always performing at every awards show???

Tori Kelly Sings Hallelujah

Don’t get me wrong. Tori Kelly has a beautiful voice. However, she has no singles. Well, correction. She has singles that not that many people pay attention to. The Billboard charts don’t lie…

With that said, Tori has managed to build a strong career out of performing at literally every major awards ceremony from the Grammys to the Emmys….And now, I really want to know how and why she gets these gigs.

The best person I can compare her to is Jennifer Hudson, who performs everywhere without a successful album. The difference, however, is that Jennifer has won an Oscar and has starred in hit movies like Sex In The City.

Anyways, I just want someone to explain to me how this American Idol reject (harsh, I know, but true) has managed to get this much shine. Please explain. Please and thank you.

#randomrantover

Hot Mess # 3: Clare Danes for making the classic spray tan mistake

gallery-1474281338-claire-danes-emmys-tan.jpg

Honestly, I don’t have much more to say outside of showing this picture, but I do wonder if celebrities realize how orange they are until the blogs. Like this is so orange that people began to compare the actress to Donald Trump. #Ouch

Side note: I was going to put Donald Trump on this list for remarks about the Chelsea bomber in New York, but I don’t want to give him too much shine.

Hot Mess # 4: Nelly’s fans for streaming his music to pay off his tax debt

nelly-2002-billboard-650x430.jpg

After learning that Nelly owed the IRS $2.4 million, fans vowed to pay back the rapper’s debt in music streams. Some people even figured out the exact number of times “Hot in Herre” would have to be streamed in order to free the rapper completely of his debt.

I know I put this story on my Hot Mess list, but I’m actually not sure if it’s a hot mess or just funny. I mean, who thought that Nelly still had so many devout followers?

Personally, I wonder where these “fans” were for his last few singles…But you know, that’s just me…   Nelly’s Hot In Herre Sees Spike

To Stand Or Not To Stand

I’ve taken a little bit of a hiatus. I was touring Italy and getting my entire life. Now, I’m fortunate enough to be back in New York… Yay?

Sigh, let’s get it… ha

Hot Mess #1: Kate Upton for reckless tweeting

kate-upton

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard about the protest of Colin Kaepernick. The star quarterback of the SF 49ers is refusing to stand for the U.S. national anthem, which happens to play at the beginning of every professional football game.

Kaepernick’s decision is sparking numerous debates on whether or not the act is disrespectful.

kaepernick-anthem.jpg

I understand the different arguments. For some, standing during the national anthem is a way to honor those who fought for the freedoms of this country and around the world. So, if someone refuses to stand, it could be seen as an ultimate lack of respect for veterans and military in particular. For others, however, the national anthem is not a song that represents the freedoms of all Americans, so declining to stand is more of an acknowledgement of this fact.

Whatever your feelings toward the national anthem, I think it’s important that we all educate ourselves on 1) the history behind the song and 2) the true intention behind those refusing to stand.

In response to the kneeling of Miami Dolphins’ players yesterday, model Kate Upton tweeted, “This is unacceptable. You should be proud to be an American. Especially on 9/11 when we should support each other,” followed by a picture of the protest.

Although I can understand Kate Upton’s stance, I think we should acknowledge the respect that players did show to all those who braved 9/11. The players stood during the 9/11 tribute, and only knelt during the actual playing of the national anthem. In addition, their kneeling is meant to be a gesture that honors military (as opposed to completely sitting) while also standing up for what’s right.

Personally, I just think that the Kate Uptons of the world are not ready for the Black resistance that’s been growing these last few years. With incidences like Travon Martin and Eric Garner being recorded every day and posted to social media, the anger of Black Americans and people of color has finally tipped the scale. People have had enough and America is only feeling divided because of how “loud” minorities are starting to become.

Let’s be honest. Most Blacks and people of color have always been “woke” in this country, but we haven’t always been collectively this vocal. Now, everyone is starting to give zero f&*ks, and quite frankly, I think it’s making many Americans a little uncomfortable.

Maybe that’s a good thing?

p.s. I encourage everyone to learn their U.S. history. It’s fine to debate, but we should all understand the complexities of the national anthem. Slavery and the national anthem: The surprising history

Not to mention, if anyone is to be truly pissed in this country, it should be the Native Americans. Stripped of everything and slaughtered, they’ve had it pretty rough and still have to continue to put up with America’s b.s.

Thousands Protest North Dakota Pipeline  #staywokepeople

TV - World Series, Ray Charles 2 - 20011028.jpg

Anyways, we are all arguing over the national anthem, but it’s not even the best song to represent this country. Personally, I think “America The Beautiful” should be the anthem. #Justsayin #RIPRay

Hot Mess #2: Anyone coming for Hillary Clinton

g8-pa5ka

During a 9/11 ceremony yesterday, Hillary Clinton grew ill and almost collapsed. Part of Hillary’s health scare was captured on camera, and had many wondering about the presidential candidate’s overall health. Now, it’s been reported that Hillary is recovering from pneumonia and dehydration. #scarystuff

Hillary Falls Ill

Although it’s understandable that people are concerned, I think that we should all focus more on Hillary actually getting better and less on this being a sign of her “weakness” as a candidate. Yes, the Clinton campaign probably could be managing Clinton’s health better, but I do not take one scare as a sign of her being unfit to lead this country.

I mean, just look at what she’s accomplished! lol

To be honest, both presidential candidates are old and could drop dead at any moment (harsh, but true). Let’s just choose to send them both well wishes and hope that they have many more years ahead of them.

Hot Mess #3: Malia Obama’s trash friends for being trash

malia-obama-e1449128020210.jpg

I won’t spend too much time on this, but recently, Malia Obama has been “lucky” enough to be caught in a series of photos showing her around drugs and alcohol.

Now, I’m not really here to be the photo police, but I find it interesting that there’s always a leaked photo of the President’s daughter on Snapchat…

Malia Obama plays beer pong

Malia isn’t doing anything out of the norm for a teenager. However, it bothers me that more and more we are starting to see photos of her simply trying to lead a regular life on social media. And, all this does is prove that random heifers and “friends” cannot be trusted…

Thank God Malia will be out of the White House next year and can live her gap year in peace. I can only imagine trying to grow up under a microscope…At least the Obamas always appear to be supportive of their daughter.

Scandalous Meets Stupid

As painful as Mondays are, I always love sitting down with a bowl of cereal and blogging. Can we say sanity check?

Let’s get it!

Hot Mess #1: Nate Parker and his rape scandal

image

Okay, so I actually have all the feels when it comes to this latest story about Nate Parker. In case you missed it, Parker was in the news a few months ago for his film, The Birth of a Nation, which tells the story of rebel slave, Nat Turner. After Sundance, The Birth of a Nation was purchased by Fox Searchlight for a whopping $17.5 million, putting Parker on the road to Hollywood A-lister.

It wasn’t until recently that news of Parker’s troubled past came to light. Back in 1999, Parker was accused of raping a female student while studying at Penn State. His alleged victim then went on to commit suicide in 2012.

As a woman, I couldn’t be more disgusted by the idea of any man getting away with rape. As a Black American, however, I question the timing of this story being published in outlets such as Variety. The Birth of a Nation was set to perform incredibly well come October, and now its fate is somewhat up in the air as people debate whether or not to support Parker and his film.

Look, I’m not saying that we should not discuss Parker’s past. I am saying, however, that I hope that people will understand that The Birth of a Nation is much bigger than its individual contributors. Hollywood has not always been the biggest supporter of Black narratives, especially narratives that don’t include a “white savior” and include a Black uprising. If The Birth of a Nation performs well at the box office this fall, then it will only help to show film executives that there is a true market for this type of storytelling.

Anyways, I could go on forever about this topic and probably write an entire essay about my feelings on both Parker and the movie. For now, I’m going to switch gears and show some love for another Black film that has no controversies surrounding it.

Hidden Figures, a movie about Katherine Johnson, an African American physicist who made significant contributions to NASA, stars Taraji P. Henson, Janelle Monae, and Octavia Spencer, and already looks A-mazing. 🙂

Hot Mess #2: Ryan Lochte for just being a mess

636058407277017878-USP-OLYMPICS-USA-SWIMMING-PRESS-CONFERENCE-83765002

Ryan Lochte has never struck me as the brightest star in the sky, potentially not even shining at all…

Last week, the media reported that Lochte and a small group of American Olympic swimmers were robbed at gunpoint at a Rio gas station. When interviewed, Lochte claimed that the robbers pulled out guns and even placed one to his forehead.

Long story short, all of the details from the “robbery” turned out to be one giant lie. Video footage shows Lochte and crew vandalizing private property and getting into a fight.

U.S. Swimmers Incident In Rio

Needless to say, Lochte and the others are now paying for their poor judgment. Sponsors including Speedo and Ralph Lauren have dropped him. #AMess

Hot Mess #3: Gabby Douglas and her haters

514350478-gymnast-gabby-douglas-poses-for-a-portrait-at-the-2016

U.S. gymnast and Olympic champion, Gabby Douglas, just can’t seem to catch a break. From her bad hair days to her “attitude” during the Rio Olympics, Gabby has given her random social media haters one thing to comment on after another.

Now, I’m not going to lie. When I was watching Gabby watch her teammates, Simone Biles and Aly Raisman, compete in the individual all-round for gymnastics, I thought her attitude was trash. At one point, all the girls in the stands were clearly cheering for their U.S. teammates, while Gabby sat with a sour face.

gabby-douglas

Yup….

Even though I’m not really here for Gabby’s attitude, I’m also not supportive of the major hate she’s received her entire career. I mean, come on. If Ryan Lochte can be a complete idiot and be defended by NBC reporters, then Gabby Douglas can be left alone.

Hot Mess #4: Donald Trump for playing the white savior

donald-trump-7be70449-3996-4e8a-bea7-f231fc38fc0f.jpg

In the latest of hot mess events, Donald Trump attempted to gain Black supporters.

Trump to African Americans 

The Republican nominee stated that the Democratic Party has failed African American communities and that Blacks have nothing to lose by voting for him…

I’ve already mentioned how important it is for us to get rid of the white savior storyline, so you already know how I feel.

Natural Hair, Do Care?

Happy Monday, everyone! As I continue to count down the days (yes, I’m already counting) until the weekend, I hope that you guys are having a much better week than me…Let’s get it!

Hot Mess #1: The Today Show for setting up my people.

Today Show

One of the biggest trending stories this week involved Youtube stylist, Deepica Mutyala, and model, Malyia McNaughton. Deepica was appearing on the Today Show to teach women at home how to style their hair effortlessly. Unfortunately for Deepica, there was nothing effortless about working with Black hair.

Today Show Natural Hair Nightmare

On the one hand, I commend Deepica for requesting a Black model and trying to be inclusive. On the other hand, however, I think it’s a mess that she didn’t take the time to educate herself about styling Black hair before appearing on the show. I also think it’s a mess that the Today Show didn’t do a trial run with Deepica before the segment. After all, everyone knows that even “live” television can be rehearsed to perfection. Sigh..

MDczOWNlMTA2OSMvcjhlQ0pwNjJKVGNRMjlpdmthcDZCQUhoQWc0PS9maXQtaW4vOTAweDkwMC9maWx0ZXJzOm5vX3Vwc2NhbGUoKTpxdWFsaXR5KDgwKS9odHRwOi8vaW1hZ2VzLm1pYy5jb20vaGxjMGs1MHdncXR2ajBiZGxiZWtmbzJjdzB5c2NnY3VweWFxc3V5Z2JnamRoY2p4anIzZ3IydjNyZ2R2anh4ai5naWY

p.s. Two props and a bag of chips for Malyia for keeping her cool. She even smiled through the pain and embarrassment.

Hot Mess #2: Tyga for being broke and purchasing luxury vehicles.

tyga

If you’re unfamiliar with Tyga, just know that he’s a rapper turned questionable boyfriend of Kylie Kardashian Jenner.

Since becoming a couple, Kylie and Tyga have had one rocky relationship. Regardless, of their ups and downs, however, one thing remains consistent, Tyga’s purchasing habits. Tyga has bought Kylie expensive gifts in the past, leaving the people to ask, “With what money?”

Tyga Gifts Kylie A Maybach

Tyga has technically had several hits as a music artist, but none of those would enable him to afford a Maybach for his girlfriend…I guess he doesn’t mind adding himself to the list of broke rappers…

Hot Mess #3: Bow Wow for “retiring” from rap.

bow-wow

Apparently, Bow Wow has officially announced that he is retiring from rap. Yay?

The rapper hasn’t had a hit in years, so it’s a little confusing why he would feel the need to retire from something that no one has associated him with in years.

Sports Illustrated Shades Bow Wow

Personally, I think that Bow Wow is just going through a quarter life crisis (even though he’s technically 29). It literally is the only thing I can think of to explain his bizarre statements lately.

Bow Wow Won’t Vote Because He’s ‘Mixed’

Yeah…that happened…

At least Bow Wow’s recent behaviors have reminded me of his past accomplishments like growing hair longer than girls.

The 28th Annual American Music Awards

Hmmm…I wonder if this hair would have been easier for Deepica to style. Curious minds want to know. lol

Hot Mess 4#: R. Kelly for just being a mess.

Z100's Jingle Ball 2013 - Press Room

Ever since I can remember, R. Kelly has been questioned about his dealings with underage girls. Remember when he married Aaliyah when she was only 15??

Anyways, the R&B singer appears to have a new girlfriend, 19-year-old  Halle Calhoun. Technically, Halle is of age, but this move definitely makes fans wonder about R. Kelly’s past.

At least Kelly has never been caught with child pornography like Mark Salling…

Hot Mess #1: Hollywood for still not understanding #OscarsSoWhite

la-et-oscarssowhite-see-how-it-didn-t-have-to-be-this-way-vid-20160122.jpg

In the weeks leading up to the Academy Awards, the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite trended on Twitter. It was a direct result of the lack of diversity seen across the nominations for various categories, including Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director and so on. The Twitter chatter was so loud that Chris Rock, who hosted the awards ceremony, had to address the diversity conversation live.

Needless to say, that didn’t turn out so well. Remember when Stacy Dash, the one actress who’s probably lost her “Black card,” walked out on the stage…

tumblr_o3bii124QC1qdla50o2_400.gif

Yeah…Anyways, apparently, Hollywood still hasn’t gotten the memo about the need for more diverse representation on the screen, giving roles written about people of color to white actors.

02-constance-wu.w529.h529.jpg

Luckily for us, we have talented POC individuals like Constance Wu, who stand up to the ridiculousness that is Hollywood. Constance stars in ABC’s “Fresh Off The Boat,” a hit comedy about an Asian-American family, and has been very vocal about Hollywood’s diversity problem.

Constance Wu Slams Matt Damon’s New Movie

Yup, I’ll let you guys read that one for yourselves…Sigh, when will Hollywood ever learn? Audiences are craving for diversity. Just give it to us! lol

Hot Mess #2: Donald Trump for being too lazy to educate himself

donald-trump

Honestly, I really don’t have that much against Donald Trump (I’m going to ignore his racist, chauvinist comments for a second. Bear with me.) More than anything, my real issue with Trump is the fact that he almost refuses to learn anything outside of his own outrageous opinions.

Trump says Putin is ‘not going to go into Ukraine’

Trump’s questionable stance on both domestic and foreign affairs is quite scary. The good news is Russia will not be going into the Ukraine because it already has…#AMess

Hot Mess #3: Anyone who has nothing better to do than bash Malia Obama

ct-malia-obama-lollapalooza-20160729-1.jpg

Over the weekend, Malia Obama chose to have fun at Lollapalooza instead of  hanging out at the DNC, a decision that all teenagers probably would have made. But, of course, the haters are going to hate and talk about everything from her attire to her dance moves to the fact that she passed on the DNC.

Well, news Fl-A-sh. One, Malia is a teenager wearing typical teenage clothes, doing typical teenage things. Two, she’s not running for office and her whole life has been nothing, but one long speech after another. So, let’s let the girl live.

Hot Mess #4: Bill Clinton for probably loving balloons more than U.S. citizens

bill-clinton-dnc-balloons-4

Even though Malia did not watch the DNC, I, along with the rest of America, chose to witness the A-mazingness that was Bill Clinton playing with balloons.  Who knew that Bill could be THAT happy?

America The Beautiful

Last week, I thought the biggest hot mess story would be the drama between Kimye and Taylor Swift. Then, Melania Trump took the stage at the Republican National Convention (RNC) and all hell broke loose…

Let’s get it!

Hot Mess #1: Melania Trump for plagiarizing Michelle Obama’s speech

melania-trump-rnc-speech

 

Melania Trump proudly addressed the American people last Monday night and endorsed her husband as the next POTUS. Unfortunately for Melania, fans of the Obamas were also watching the RNC and quickly realized that her speech sounded very familiar…

Melania Trump and Michelle Obama side-by-side comparison

Yup, that’s right folks. Melania Trump plagiarized Michelle Obama’s speech and thought she could get away with it…

Seeing as though we live in the age of social media, I’m not sure why anyone would ever plagiarize a high profile speech on national television. Then again, I know that Donald Trump’s campaign plays by its own rules and could care less about getting caught in a plagiarism scandal.

The good news is that Melania’s speech set off a series of amazing tweets.

p.s. Does anyone else think that Melania looked like Lucifer incarnate at the RNC? She’s definitely a beautiful woman, but those brows and eye makeup…

Unexpectedly, Ted Cruz became an American “hero” when he denounced Donald Trump’s nomination at the RNC.

When the most punchable face on the planet beats you at your own game (even if it’s for 20 minutes), then you know you have a problem.

Side note: People tweeting that Ted Cruz looked like Mrs. Doubtfire throughout his campaign for the Republican nomination was the best.

No, but really. Top members of the DNC (cough* cough* Debbie Wasserman) are corrupt and conspired against Bernie Sanders. Leaked DNC Emails

Sigh, when will people learn?

The last thing we need during the rise of Donald Trump is a political scandal that works in his favor…#Amess

Needless to say, I’m currently watching the Democratic National Convention, hoping against anymore hot mess speeches or scandals. So far everything is going smoothly, but it’s only night 1. We have a whole week of possibilities. And, as last week showed, anything can happen. *Ellie Goulding voice*
