MTV x Sweet/Vicious x Nikki Sin Raise Money For RAINN

sweetviciousSweet/Vicious hit MTV back in October an is addressing the issue of sexual violence on campus. The show paired up with RAINN to launch a contest with a dope prize, and potential to raise thousands for the anti-sexual violence organization. The campaign that raises the most money will win a viewing party with 14 friends, and the stars of Sweet/Vicious! You can donate to my campaign here, and start your own too! Be sure to tweet me when you donate, and I’ll RT you with a bunch of love!

“I am joining forces with MTV and the cast of Sweet/Vicious to help raise money for RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) — the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization.

Through January 18, 2017, I will compete to raise the most amount of money to support survivors of sexual violence through RAINN. If my fundraising efforts top the charts, me and 15 of my friends will win a viewing party with Eliza Bennett and Taylor Dearden from the cast of Sweet/Vicious!

Sexual violence is a crime that affects nearly every family in America — one in every six women and one in every 33 men will experience sexual violence at some point in their lives, according to the Justice Department. When a survivor discloses what happened, a supportive reaction can make all the difference. At RAINN, support specialists are standing by, 24/7, to help survivors in their time of need through the National Sexual Assault Hotline (800.656.HOPE, online.rainn.org y rainn.org/es).

I am proud to be raising funds for such an important cause. Please support my efforts to fight sexual violence, and help survivors. Making a contribution is fast, easy and secure.

All funds raised will benefit RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) — the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization. RAINN created and operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline (800.656.HOPE, online.rainn.org), and carries out programs to prevent sexual violence and ensure that perpetrators are brought to justice.

The Hamilton Mixtape Hit iTunes Today

The Broadway smash hit from Lin-Manuel Miranda is pulling a reverse Jesus Christ Superstar and releasing an album based on the play.

Lin-Manuel Miranda

Miranda teamed up with Questlove of The Roots, and a slew of hip-hop legends to create the mixtape. In a March interview with Vanity Fair Questlove revealed some of the artists on the album:

So far, Busta Rhymes, Ben Folds, Regina Spektor, Latifah, Common, Chance the Rapper, and others. People are coming out of the woodwork, knocking on the door. Half the songs are cover versions of songs in the show, and the others are interpolations—we’ll take some of this, some of that, and make something new out of it.

Last week via Twitter, it was announced that Murder Inc alumni Ja Rule, and Ashanti paired up for the first time in over a decade on the album. There’s no doubt that  Tony award winner LMM will dominate the charts with this.

 

#TBT

A Canadian classic, Life With Derek reminded us what a pain step siblings can be, and how lovable Michael Seater is, who if we want to really throwback was on the YTV hit The Zack Files. Life with Derek was also the launch platform for some Degrassi alumni with ‘Adam’ (RIP), Fiona’s mom, and the scandalous father of the Hollingsworth kids.

Seater is now a filmmaker with his indie flick ‘Sadie’s Last Day On Earth’ dropping soon!

 

7 Times Degrassi’s Stefan Brogren Was The King Of Twitter

As a Canadian, I was introduced to Stefan Brogren as Snake, lowkey my mom had a pretty big crush on him according to my dad, and later on to my friends who weren’t introduced to the show until Degrassi: The Next Generation (yes that was the one with Drake). Fast forward past Snake’s affair on the show, having a baby with Spike,and  a stint as principal; Brogren is now directing, and producing off screen with Netflix’s Degrassi: Next Class.

Fun fact: I have auditioned for Degrassi more than once. Seriously, I did it as an actor who looks like 15, an as a Canadian right of passage.

But, the man is one of many talents with tweeting being on of them. Here are 7 times Stefan Brogren ruled Twitter:

1. When he said how we all felt about The Daily Show, and life in general…

15209154_10154030446160778_202923070_n

2. When he proved he wasn’t a sore loser.

15218267_10154030446125778_1536042742_n

3. When he live tweeted during one of the disasters this year known as the presidential debates.

15240120_10154030446110778_1885657005_n

4. And then when he reacted to the results of said election a monthish later…

15280924_10154030446130778_1592216908_n

5. He may be Canadian but he understands Americans and their holidays

15218679_10154030446200778_61195340_n

6. Speaking of being thankful, tfw you are also thankful for Dave Chapelle’s SNL hosting.

15281849_10154030446190778_1234149737_n

7. And finally, when Brogren gave in and watched Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life like we all did this past weekend.

The U.K Kylie Jenner: Geordie Shore Star Chloe Ferry Slays Instagram

Since the Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge is a thing of the past, but Jenner is not. And well the internet is full of Karashian/Jenner “lookalikes” U.K reality star Chloe Ferry takes it to a whole new level.

Image result for chloe ferry kylie jenner

To be fair, Ferry was trying to emulate Jenner in the photo from the shoot above, but the two have quite a bit in common regardless.

1. Reality TV stardom:

Kylie Jenner got her start as the youngest of the family on the reality TV hit ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians‘, whereas Chloe Ferry got her start on the MTV series ‘Geordie Shore‘.

Image result for chloe ferry geordie shore

2. Clothing ranges:

Both ladies are in the fashion industry, Chloe has a range with MISSBELLA, and Kylie has her range with sister Kendall under Pacsun.

Image result for kylie jenner pacsun

3. Apps, but I think we know which is more popular…

Kylie Jenner has her ever popular game with sister Kylie, and her own style and lifestyle app. Whereas our girl Chloe has an app that launched earlier this month with her Geordie Shore family. So the answer to “is there a Chloe Ferry sticker for my Instagram pics?!” question is yes.

Image result for geordie shore app

4. Hair and Cosmetic lines

Although Chloe’s cosmetics’ line is fairly new, it is also matte and lip gloss products.
Her hair range is with Lauren Pope, fellow UK reality star, and her company Hair Rehab London. Kylie has her HUGELY successful cosmetics, an extensions with Bellamy.

5. Cosmetic surgery

I am in no way shaming these ladies, do you, but both have admitted to having lip enhancements.

7. Fans of Lily Lashes

Both stunning ladies have been spotted sporting the lashes

#MusicMonday: Rae Sremmurd Nearly Surpass Adele For U.S Plays

Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles” was played 54.1 million times in the U.S., the most in a week since Adele’s “Hello” registered 61.6 in 2015. The song that you may recognize from the ‘Mannequin Challenge’ videos, and everywhere else ever features recently released from prison rapper/Spring Breakers’ star Gucci Mane.I suspect that the play total will continue to rise.

The Real World Bad Blood: Love Outside of Seattle

This season of the Real World has a crazy twist, FOURTEEN roommates, an has already seen hookups, and breakups. Like Jenny and Brian (who kind of don’t count because they met before the show), Sean and Pedro, and rare other RW couples one of the couple from the 32nd season of the hit MTV reality show is making it work outside of the Seattle house.

Image result for the real world bad blood jennifer and peter

Peter (Mike’s bad blood/ex roomie), and Anna (Katrina’s bad blood/sister)  who were both brought in as part of the Bad Blood twist seemed to hit it off instantly, but when the bad blood ladies were chatting on the dock about ho they fancied I a Jennifer (Robbie’s bad blood/ex) with a reluctant interest in Peter too.

With a boyfriend outside of the house, Jennifer did her on thing as Anna and Peter had things heat up and seemed inseparable. Unfortunately for Peter, Katrina was not a big fan of #PeterPAnna and the two split up in a super awkward park break up by Anna.

Last week, things started to look up for Peter, and he lived up to his Romeo last name by hooking up with our dear Jen. Okay it was a kiss/make out but one that enough to have Jen feel guilty and call her man back home and tell him what happened. It all worked out in the end, and it seems as though #Jeter / #Petifer became the new power couple in the house as T and Theo fought like always. But we all want to see showmances make it out of reality TV into reality, a nice happy ending. Jennifer posted this gem of her ‘little family’ on Instagram on Thanksgiving:

It seems as though the to are making it work, an that Jen is ROCKING A BAD ASS WEAVE (slay girl, slay). Hopefully we won’t see these two on a revival of The Challenge: Battle Of The Exes…

#BeautyOnABudget: Natural Nail Care

No one likes to admit it, but nails on fingers and toes can easily become infected. Whether the cause be sweat, an unclean spa, or something uncontrollable such as diabetes nails can become discolored, brittle, an painful if they are infected.
One of my favourite tips for natural nail care is not only simple, but cost efficient. Australian derived, tea tree oil is used to help aide rashes, skin issues, and infections, and is often recommended by doctors to treat nail fungus before something prescribed. You can apply the tea tee oil directly to the nail but overuse of the product can cause irritation. This week’s tip is to simply add 2-5 drops of tea tree oil to some clear top/base coat nail polish to easily cover your finger and toe nails. I recommend Essence brand, its av available online, and at Shoppers Drug Mart, even better? It is under $5! Tea tree oil is available wherever vitamins are, my bottle cost me just $6!

img_0090

3. As a mother, who do you think in Hollywood is a good role model for young children?

Geez, I don’t think anyone is ever a good role model for my daughter besides God himself, however business wise I would have to say Steve Harvey, I have read his book and researched him and his story is great!

4. With the presidential election being so crazy and the race hitting every headline, what are your views on (President) Donald Trump?
*rolls eyes .. “Idiot”

 

5. You’re also a motivational speaker, whats the best advice you have for those heading into the seasonal depression time of year?

Stay prayed up, put all your fears, emotions, doubts, loneliness into God’s hands. He has blessing and favor with each of your names written on it. Stay positive and keep moving forward, the best days of your life are yet to come!

9. Speaking of Instagram, how important is social media in your life, and career?

Instagram is like my resume, it’s my reality show for the world to see Arie’s world. I do spend a lot of time on it but I can also do without it. It’s a job.

#TMITuesday: 10 Questions with ‘What’s Different In Canada’ Author Kevin Bracken

With today being the U.S presidential election, and a lot of Americans ready to head over the border to live in Canada it only seems right to speak with ‘What’s Different In Canada’ author Kevin Bracken.The NewMindSpace magic maker-Deer Team Six leader-Astral Beach Co-Founder sparked the book idea from his popular Tumblr blog of the same title.  I sat down to ask Bracken about the literary conquest, find out what his theme song is, and get ‘too much info’ in this week’s #TMITuesday interview.

tmibanner

1.What inspired you to write this book?

A few years ago, I was trying to convince my friend Dustin to move to Canada. On a long flight from San Francisco, I began to write down all the little things that we different between the US and Canada. I’m pretty sure the first thing I wrote down was, “A traffic cone is called a pylon.” From there, I started a Tumblr that grew as people sent more and more suggestions.

Earlier this year, after Super Tuesday when it became apparent that Trump was going to win the Republican nomination, web searches for “move to Canada” spiked dramatically. I realized the time to release my blog in book format had come. 

2. So tell the readers what about the book, whats it all about?The book is about all the little differences between life in the US and Canada, split up into 5 sections: Food and drink, words and language, brands, nostalgia, and culture. I started with food because this seems to be the one that blows people’s minds the most. Did you know in the US we have our own cheese called “American cheese?” In Canada it’s called “processed cheese” which is much less appetizing, but certainly true. Cream soda in America is light brown versus pink in Canada. Americans don’t have Swiss Chalet or ketchup chips, either!

3. Having spent so much time in both Canada, and America, which one of the differences surprised you the most? The food ones really blow my mind the most. Being from America, I always considered microwaves to be pretty magical; here in Canada they are basically the devil. Canadians will use the stove to heat up soup, an electric kettle to make tea and ramen, and in the US we’ll use the microwave for all of it.

4. Since today is #TMITuesday, can you tell the readers something about you that they may not already know?I can hum the Super Mario theme theme song so it sounds like a perfect kazoo rendition – without a kazoo.

5. So, whats the difference between a NewMindSpace event in Canada, and one in America?I’d say our Canadian events are much more youth-focused, while our American events bring out a lot of families. Not sure why that is – but I think it’s part of the fact that it was never considered “bad parenting” to raise your kids downtown in Canada.


6. What was your experience like writing this book?
When I started the blog, it was just my opinions, written down in no particular order; however, as I went on, I started getting suggestions from all over Canada, even from as far away as Nunavut! It was a really cool experience hearing from people in the arctic.

7. If you were to choose one song to be your ‘theme song’ what would it be?
https://youtu.be/Ee_uujKuJMI

8. The book is available as a free downloadable e-book, what made you choose to have it be not only super accessible, but also free?

I have known a lot of authors and publishers, and they all seem to take a pretty dim view about writing a book in 2016. Advances are shrinking, there is not a whole lot of money to be made, so it didn’t really make sense to charge money for it. I would rather get the book in front of as many people as possible, and keep spreading the good news about my adopted country.

9. Describe the book using 1 GIF:

Saturday Night Live television snl canada seth meyers

10. Whats next for you Kevin?

In 2016, we built a large metal swan car that shoots fire. In 2017, we are building an even bigger touring festival stage that will be shaped like a dragon that can hold about 20 people dancing on top. The code name is Heavy Meta.

#MusicMonday: U.S Presidential Election Playlist

Ok, ok I live in Canada but I still believe its important to vote in the election tomorrow.
This is such an important vote, and an important day in history so naturally I had to put together a voting playlist to get the 18+ crowd in the USA excited.

This election has been a plethora of frightening thoughts of Trump winning, feeling the Bern, incredible memes, and platform issues that MATTER. This list is a fun way for me to remind y’all to V O T E.

 

 

 

A CLASSIC.

I’m not a Trump fan at all but these are my boys.

This HAD to make the list, such an iconic American party song.

This song also brings me back to being like 4 or 5 and dancing around to my parent’s music

An American horror dream?

Another classic tho…

#CinemaSunday: Most Likely To Die (2016)

Intro

Okay, okay I should have been doing Cinema Sunday all of October for Halloween, I’m sorry. For some of us, horror is year-round though so I think it’ll all be okay. I’m back with a 2016 horror b-movie with a familiar face in it that you would not expect to see. My choice this week is titled ‘Most Likely To Die‘ and stars, no joke here, Perez Hilton.

Sinopsis

GENRE: Slasher/B-Movie

Prepping for a 10 year highschool reunion, a group of former teenage friends get together for a few days in a mansion to catch up.

ENTER, SERIAL KILLER.

Also, prepare for a hilarious back story of a bullied kid.

Review

I enjoyed the film far more than I thought I would, for a random Netflix pick. In terms of slashers it would barely break my top 15 but it wasn’t a total waste of my time. Perez actually did quite well, better than I anticipated.

Rating

8 Perez Hilton photo watermarks out of 10

Who should watch this?

RIP Vine: Does Anyone Really Care?

I’ve been saying that Vine is dead for well over a year, the social media platform that created a plethora of comedy careers for users of the app that allowed you to post up to 6 second videos is taking over Twitter with the #RIPVine tag today.

Image result for vine
Twitter, which bought out Vine, announced it is discontinuing the app earlier today.
But how torn up about the loss are you, I care very little about it. I think the only people who will be upset are the companies who utilize famous Viners for ads, and promotion.

Vine introduced us to King Bach (Host of Punk’d), Jus Reign (Much Creator), and brought Josh Peck (Drake and Josh, Grandfathered, The Mindy Project) back into our lives/hearts.

Ultimately Instagram, and Snaphat took over the video game within social media. We will all survive without Vine.
