So, There’s A Giant “Trump Rat” In NYC…

… and it’s amazing.

Trump Rat magically appeared near Trump Tower in New York City yesterday (Monday) during the POTUS’ first visit since becoming president in January, and is now the greatest Trump Troll since Trump Chicken.

And people are loving it.

 

 

The piece was created by an artist named John Post Lee, who confirmed it will be following Trump around to other local NYC events.

Kesha’s Heartfelt Letter To Her 18-Year-Old Self Is Wonderful

It doesn’t take a gossip column writer to know that Kesha Rose Sebert as an artist, and as a person, has been through a lot.

At just 18 years old, she dropped out of high school, and moved to L.A. with nothing but a dream and a demo tape (true story!)

Since then she’s experienced a lot, and wrote this very honest “Note To Self”:

“Dear Kesha,

At this very moment, you may be wondering if it was really a good idea to drop out of high school and move to L.A. with nothing but your grandpa’s Lincoln Town Car and a demo tape.

I’ve got good news and I’ve got bad news, and I know you’re a tad impatient so we’ll start with the good news. You made it! And thank God because the best plan B we ever came up with was waitressing and we will soon find out that is not really our forte.

The bad news is, you nearly killed yourself on the road to success, fueled by fear of failure, crippling anxiety and insecurity. You will become severely bulimic and anorexic and the worse your disease gets, the more praise you will get from some people in your industry. And this will really, really mess with your head. But when you’re trying to live up to an unrealistic expectation, it’s never going to be good enough. No matter what you do.

Right now, you’re killing it on Myspace, but beware because the internet will get way less innocent real fast. Just save yourself some anxiety and a few years worth of therapy and just skip the comment section. Skip it all together. It’s a breeding ground for negativity and hate. And don’t let people scare and shame you into changing the things about yourself that make you unique and interesting. Those are the qualities that will make your life so magical. That bad girl, I don’t give a s*** attitude, it’ll work for a while, and you will get a dollar sign tattooed on your hand that will last forever probably. But the truth is, you don’t need to put on an act. You can just be Kesha Rose Sebert and guess what? Apparently that’s good enough.

People will listen to your music and come to your shows as long as the art is honest and good and you’re just being yourself. You’re still in a society that worships photo-shopped super models. We all still feel the pressure to look like them because that’s a symptom of a society that emphasizes all the wrong things and this will be an everyday struggle — and you must be strong ’cause over time you will gain confidence and you will learn that words and art do matter.

You will meet kids who tell you that they struggle with many of the same things you’ve struggled with, or more. And they’re gonna tell you that your music helped save their life, and that will change you. You’re gonna learn that art can heal people.

I know you are very inspired by Bob Dylan and he’s your favorite. Bob Dylan is one of the reasons you play music and one day you’re gonna meet him and you’re going to weep hysterical happy tears at the thought of it.

One day you’re gonna write a song called “Rainbow” and you’re gonna be really proud of it because there is light and beauty after the storm, no matter how hard things get. You’re going to write this song so you remember to make it through. You’re going to remind yourself to love yourself and if you have truth in your heart, there will always be a rainbow at the end of the storm.”

Well said.

One Republic & Toni Cornell Pay Tribute To Late Father & Chester Bennington

This year, two legendary singers were lost to suicide.

First, Chris Cornell (the voice behind Soundgarden & Audioslave) died on May 18th, and most recently, Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, died just over two weeks ago (July 20th).

Image result for chris cornell chester bennington

Today on Good Morning America, Chris Cornell‘s 12 year old daughter Toni Cornell teamed up with One Republic to perform a beautiful, heartfelt tribute to her late father and Chester.

What makes it even harder not to cry, is they chose to perform “Hallelujah” by the late Leonard Cohen, who we lost late last year to cancer.

Get Ready For Miley Cyrus In Cosmo!

It’s no secret… Miley Cyrus is back 😉

Image result for miley cyrus gif

She’s also… different :s

Image result for miley cyrus vs hannah montana

Miley went from being the wholesome, girl-next-door during her Hannah Montana days, to being the party-girl, with lots of glitter, outrageous stunts and costumes, and even drastic hair changes. Honestly I loved both. Do you girl.

But now it seems Miley has found a balance of both worlds, and it’s pretty AWESOME 😀

Check out this sneak peak of her feature in Cosmopolitan (which hits shelves in September, btw):

And here’s the real heart warmer… we have a new Genie <3

Non-other than Will Smith will be reviving the iconic role, and much like the late Robin Williams, he’s very much his own person, with his own style, who will KILL it in his own way. Uncle Phil would be proud.

 

Can’t wait!!

Miley Cyrus & Jimmy Fallon Sing Google Translated Songs

“Lost In Translation” is the theme here 😉

Because of this little thing called grammar, if you translate something from English to another language, it doesn’t always come back the same when translated back to English…

Example:

… close enough lol

Of course it’s 10x funnier when you try it with your favourite songs… and sing them!

Check out Miley Cyrus trying it out on The Tonight Show:
