Rapper, and soon to be mother Ashley Allday aka Lil Face Tatt is this week’s #WCW
Rapper, and soon to be mother Ashley Allday aka Lil Face Tatt is this week’s #WCW
I’m all over this whole Zac Efron in bro-comedies, and action flicks, The Rock too. This is the genre the two were meant for. With the resurgence of old TV shows (yes I’m sorry but Baywatch is an old show.) being turned into films such as Chips, and Power Rangers it only seemed fair to give Baywatch it’s shot. I foresee this being a lot like 21 Jump Street, so I’m very much hoping fora cameo from Pamela, or The Hoff.
Thats right, thirteen year old Danielle Bregoli who was recently in the news after a video surfaced of her mother beating her up is getting her own reality show. Thanks America! If Grumpy Cat got a holiday movie, it only seems fair to keep shoving this disrespectful young girl onto screens everywhere too, no? In all seriousness, you know I will be watching this show…
If you are a Toronto native you are probably blasting More Life, wearing a camo bomber and white sneakers right now. That is because our Lord and saviour Champagne Papi aka Drizzy aka Drake aka Aubrey dropped new music for us.
BUT THAT IS NOT ALL WE WILL BE BLESSED WITH THIS SPRING Y’ALL. Kendrick Lamar’s new album will drop just in time for my birthday (okay 2 days late) on April 7th. My body is ready.
Okay he is not a real person but he is goddamn dreamy. #BadBoy CALLIIFFFORRRRNNIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA HERREEE WE COOOMEEEEE!
I’m not going to pretend to be excited about this, but it might surprise me? The Power Rangers movie sure did.
It is with the heaviest of hearts, souls and eyes full of tears that I write that my rockstar, my best friend, and most importantly my dad passed away on the evening of March 15th, 2017. As many of you know he was one of the kindest, most charismatic humans on the planet. An animal whisperer, father, junk rockstar, b-movie, bad tv loving man. I cannot, and will not even begin to explain how shattered I am by this (especially via social media). Pops is the reason I know all that I do about film,TV, and music and the man was always sure to support me learning more about the two. He would always tell me little tidbits about certain songs, or scenes in TV shows/films and I’m pretty sure that is where I get my habit of “hey did you know” from. We played ‘Road’, he taught me to always stick by my brother, picked me up at all hours of the night from anywhere just to make sure I was safe, and always made way too much pasta. My dad meant, and still means everything to me and was my biggest fan, supporter and taught me so much that I was never given the opportunity to thank him or repay him for. Of course this is not about me, it is about the loss of such an incredible man. He and I agreed 2017 would be a big year of change for us and damn were we right.But, how can I possibly even put into words how amazing my dad was, I could go on forever and continue to have raw face of tears.
Pops never liked to be fussed over and as per his wishes there will be no funeral service, but a celebration of his life will be planned and held in the future.
He was always so supportive of all my crazy ideas, and dreams especially this website so it is only fitting that he have a post dedicated to him. And it is very likely that this will not be my last post about, or dedicated to him.
All of your messages,tweets and calls of love are appreciated even if I have not answered yet. And the casseroles (yes this is a real thing, people really do bring casseroles to you when a loved one dies). I love you all (okay most of you), thank you.
Love, money, and reality TV are the three key components in this week’s feature. Are You The One’s fifth season has brought up some memorable folk one being the non-stop adorbs Ozzy. #TMITuesday brings to light answers from the MTV babe such as ‘have you ever been in love’? Dive into this week’s post:
1. Why did you apply for AYTO?
I never really applied for AYTO, the opportunity presented itself to me as I had just broken up with my ex girlfriend and told one of my friends about it. He then texted me a couple weeks later asking if I would be interested in having my information sent in to the casting company, it just so happened, he works casting talent for reality tv shows. After asking my close friends about it, it seemed too good an opportunity to pass.
2. Social media can be a scary place for a reality TV personality, what sort of response have you gotten from fans of the show?
My story line has been followed through most part of the show, so I have received a great deal of followers through the different social media platforms. I have nothing but love for the fans, they are always there to support. Of course there are the few that decide to choose sides in situations and when they’re against you they make sure to let you know they don’t like you, but these are things I simply let slide and not worry about.
As Caleb on PLL I would let him hack his way into my heart, and as Tyler I would do the same. Tyler Blackburn is this week’s #MCM and this is dedicated to those loyal PLL fans.
T-shirt says party animal; fun fact: I brought my t-shirt that says party animal to a Dirt Nasty show like 5 years ago.
This week’s #WCW is not only Canadian but a dope af rapper.
Honestly, I think Tyler is getting a pretty one sided view on his season of Are you The One, luckily there is only one side, and one person who chooses the man crush Monday feature. And that someone is me, so Tyler is this week’s pick, and labeled as this season’s ‘fu*kboi’ by Screener.
Don’t you ever say that Kim Kardashian only has one iconic video…
And thank you for your love, and kind words on Twitter!
I imagine John Legend is quite short, or I just imagine that because then if we were together I would be closer to his eye level. Mr.Chrissy Teigen aka John Legend is this week’s #MCM and constant soundtrack to my imaginary love life.
If you had to choose, would you choose love or money? This week’s feature went for both on the fifth season of MTV’s hit series Are You The One. Everyone’s favourite alpha female this season was the first confirmed match, and the center of some drama. Kam and I discuss her Youtube channel, find out which former AYTO cast member is her idea of a perfect match, and chat about whether or not she and Edward still talk.
1. A lot of Are You The One cast members have been appearing/competing on MTV’s The Challenge, if given the chance would you compete on the show? Who from your season would you like to see on the show with you?
If it came down to it, I would compete in the challenge. People from my season I’d love to see on The Challenge are Joey, Tyranny, and Kari. They are so competitive and entertaining. It would be a great season.
2. You were the first confirmed match and in the absolute drama storm when Alicia “kissed” your perfect match Edward. Did you believe Alicia when she claimed the two only shared a kiss at the Match Up ceremony? Or did you have suspicions of other acts?
I did not believe Alicia nor Edward. As women we are blessed with a superpower, our intuition. My intuition told me that there was more to the story than I was told. What actually happened was never confirmed, however something inside me knew that they shared more than a kiss.
3. On that note, do you think that it was fair that Alicia received the majority of the hate in that situation when Edward was there too? Are you on good terms with either of them?
I understand why Alicia is receiving majority of the blame in this situation. Everyone has to remember, Edward and I were not in a relationship. We were just perfect matches. Alicia and I were actually friends. Girl code is a real thing and you shouldn’t back stab your friends. Boys will come and go but friends should be here forever. I think most of the audience believes in that which is why they are so mad. As women we should uplift one another, and I don’t think she deserves to be slut shamed although she was dead wrong.
I am not on any terms with either of them.
4. Let’s talk about you though, since today is #TMITuesday can you tell the readers something about you that they may not already know?
Something the readers don’t know about me is that I won $777 on 106 & Park from Sevyn Streeter. It was such a fun experience I got to meet Bow Wow as well!
5. You worked as a flight attendant prior to your time on the show, are you still employed as one? If so, does anyone ever recognize you on your flights?
I am no longer a flight attendant. It was the best job ever, and I left that job to find love and money on the show.
6. Because you got a perfect match in the Truth Booth you left the house for the Honeymoon Suite, watching now how do you feel the group did without you in the house in terms of finding their matches?
I was definitely the voice of reason in the house and kept everyone level headed. I knew what was going on and everyone felt comfortable talking to me. So leaving I am nervous because the fate of all that money is no longer in my hands.
7. Love or money?
Love then money.
8. If you could pick any male from past seasons of Are You The One to be your perfect match who would it be and why?
I’d choose Morgan from season 4. I met him and hung out with him a few times, he’s really sweet, has great conversation, and I think we’d really click. Plus I’m down with the swirl! Lol
9. What would you say is your ‘theme song’?
Rihanna “Needed Me”
People always take me for granted and when I cut them off for good is when they realize they needed Kam.
10. What’s next for you Kam?
I have so much lined up next for me. I am a Youtuber with a strong and growing following. I recommend for all my supporters to check it out. I give as many of my “life hacks” as possible including: beauty tips, story time, etc. Also expect more reality TV, a clothing line and a fitness plan.
Keep up with Kam :
And as always stayed tuned week for all new posts on here, and an all new episode of Are you The One tomorrow on MTV!
You can come embrace the Viking life like this week’s pick at the Heavy Meta fundraiser this Friday at One Loft. Now let us all enjoy the beauty that is Travis Fimmel:
I know horror is not represented as it should be at the Academy Awards like it should be, so here is your fill of the genre for today to prepare you for James Cullen Bressack’s new film.
The 89th Academy Awards ceremony, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, will honor the best films of 2016 and will take place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California tonight.
The biggest night in Hollywood will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel is set to contain the heavy weight contenders all looking to grab that gold man. No not this one:
But the gold statue in all it’s glory, and the bragging rights it provides. you know this one:
In the lead for the wins this year include: La La Lane, Fences, Manchester By The Sea,Hidden Figures, and Moana.I am of course just hoping for some controversy to occur during the show so that I can write about it. But I am rooting for a few people that I admire, and I am expecting some political acceptance speeches.
The 90’s were an amazing time especially for condiments. Green and purple ketchup were a key part of the decade and middle-class dinners across the world.
Is a new episode of Are You The One each Wednesday not enough for you? I FEEL YOU. And if perhaps my TMITuesday interviews with the cast of this season, and last is also not enough for you then on March 22nd you will be at last satisfied.
PEOPLE reported on Wednesday that the 5 season hit would be premiering a spinoff:
“For five seasons, the wildly addictive MTV reality show has put single men and women through comprehensive interviews, compatibility tests and personality metrics that come together in an algorithm to identify their ideal partner — and then given them 10 weeks to figure out each perfect match in order to win $1 million. Now, PEOPLE can exclusively reveal that 10 of your all-time favorite perfect match couples are getting a second chance at love — and money — in an all-new spin-off series, Are You The One: All-Star Challenge.
Set in Melbourne, Australia and hosted by Real World alum Karamo Brown, the season features seven perfect match couples from seasons 1-4, as well as three from the current season 5 that have yet to be revealed.
The twist, of course, is that this time, not everyone will win together. Over the course of the season, the perfect match couples will compete in a series of challenges designed to test the strength of their bonds. Every week, the successful couples will be rewarded with cash and one match will be sent home until the definitive All-Star couple is crowned.
The relationship-focused missions will test each couple’s compatibility, and the more missions each match wins, the more money they bank — keeping them safe from elimination.
Each week, the couple in last place after the mission will enter “The Choice,” where they must individually decide between stealing their winnings earned until that point and going home, or sharing their jackpot and staying in the game. If one person chooses to steal, they get to walk away with the money — but if both opt to steal, it’s the ultimate betrayal and they’ll be sent home with nothing.”
Okay but lets get to what y’all want to know, WHO IS GOING TO BE ON THE SHOW? If you caught Wednesday’s #AYTOAfterMatch show you saw season 3 alumni Rashida, with match Devin (who dropped the FRIKKIN MIC ON ALICIA WITH A COMMENT) talking about the new show. Judging by Devin’s performance on MTV’s The Challenge we know he is a super supportive partner so Rashida is in good hands (not that the megababe cannot handle herself). Also competing are:
Season 1: Adam & Shanley
Another fierce Challenge competitor, lets see how Adam without their AYTO in-house partners Brittany, and Chris.
Will they be able to also be a perfect match for this spinoff?
Season 2: Nate & Ellie
Yet another male from AYTO AND The Challenge! I think Nate, and Ellie will make a strong team. Both of them have a lot of heart.
Season 4: Mikala & Cameron
These two were #goals from the get-go but sources confirm they have split. I can see them working well together regardless.
Season 4: Gio & Fran
These two were not short of drama on their season, and neither are short of musical talent. But will they come up short on winning? WE WILL SEE.
Season 4: Tori & Morgan
#TORGAN may have left us all sad when they split but Barbie and Ken always did work well together. And if there is a rap battle challenge, Tori has it in the BAG.
There is also set to be perfect matches from season 5 but since the show is still airing, they cannot reveal who those competitors will be. Check out the new series on MArch 22nd on MTV, and all new episodes of Are You The 5 every Wednesday on MTV.
I’ve always been more of a Veronica tbh…Camila is this week’s #WCW.
Actor, singer,dancer,Youtuber,Snapchat king there are so many titles for mega talented teenager year old Dante Scott. His latest title? #TMITuesday feature on this site. I was lucky enough to talk to the Degrassi: Next Class star about music, Ariana Grande (whom we will both be seeing next month in Toronto), his views on his LGTBQ character Vijay on Degrassi, plus I reveal a role I auditioned for on Degrassi. Yea. Watch us become best friends in this week’s post.
2. Speaking of Vijay Maraj, as an openly character how do you think he differs from past/present LGTBQ characters such as: Zoe, Riley,Marco,Fiona, Tristan,and Rasha in terms of his sexuality?
I think the reason why Vijay differs from the other LGBTQ characters in Degrassi’s past and present because he is one of the first (if not the first) of the characters to not have to come out as gay on the show. Vijay came on the series as a gay character.
It was just part of him and everyone else knew and was completely okay with it. I think that this demonstrates a huge step for not only the show, but also for society.
3. Lets talk about music! You were a finalist on The Next Star so you are no stranger to performing; Who or what inspires your musically?
Music! Yes!! I was a top 6 finalist on YTV’s The Next Star which was an amazing experience! When it comes to music inspirations, I would have to go with Ariana Grande, Bruno Mars, and Daya. All such talented artists AND performers. They do what they love every single day and they are just so good at their jobs! #lifegoals
4. What would you say is your ‘theme song’ currently?
Good question! I think my theme song right now would have to be “Work From Home” by Fifth Harmony! Such a strong and powerful song that also gets you dancing!
5. You’re now a part of the Netflix family with Degrassi: Next Class, which is definitely on MY most recently watched, what could we find on your most recently watched list on Netflix?
If you hacked my Netflix account right now you’d probably find Jane the Virgin, The Walking Dead, Glee, and Fuller House when it comes to TV shows! Then Chicago, Pitch Perfect, and Mean Girls for movies! Also. this show isn’t on Netflix but I’m in LOVE with Gossip Girl right now!
6. Since today is #TMITuesday, can you tell the readers something about you that they may not already know?
In honour of #TMITuesday, I guess I can spill a bit of tea…. Call me vague,but lets just put it this way. Although I am the baby (the youngest) on set, I am definitely not the most innocent…Also side note: I’m the subtweeting king!! LOL
7. February is a month of love, who has been your favourite Degrassi relationship? Who would you most like to see Vijay with?
Ew love…. I’m just kidding! My favourite Degrassi relationship would 100% HAVE to be Zig and Esme! I don’t know why, but I love the two together! As for Vijay, I would love to see him get involved with a new student that will hopefully come eventually? I can see it now, Vijay Mirajdating Degrassi’s latest hottie… (hopefully the actor is good looking too) LOL!
8. The amount of slayage that you serve with your makeup looks is insane, what is your go to product?
Omg thank you so much! That means a lot, as I have just started to get into makeup very recently! Hmmm… If I HAD to pick one go to product it would have to be the Bronze palette by Kylie Cosmetics. Yes, I know it’s basic… but I love it! It has a bunch of nice and subtle warm tones in it which is perfect for when I’m going for a very soft and pretty look! Plus, the eyeshadows are so creamy and they blend so well! It also has so many transition colours that work great for the perfect smokey eye!!
10. Whats next for you Dante?
Well, I have 5 career goals that I want to achieve before the end of 2017. Some are harder to achieve then others but I am very excited to get these going! Unfortunately, I can’t really share them… however, for now the focus is on the YouTube Channel! Videos every week specifically for my lovely supporters! Plus, I’m doing a bit of music here and there and will hopefully focus more on that later in the year!
Musical icon Rihanna turns 29 today! Happy birthday bae!
The world has been a horrible place lately but thankfully there are still some pure things left in it like LANA.
If you liked today’s post about the Bunz, then this track is for you…
More like BUDZ Trading Zone, amirite?
Okay so I suppose some of you are wondering what Bunz is so allow me to break it down for you:
It is essentially a bartering zone that seemed to originate on Facebook an eventually make it’s way into an app.
You can post items you want to trade with you ISO (in search of), or make a post about something you are looking for and make an offer to the OP (original poster). I’ve used the Facebook version myself to trade 6 chicken nuggets from McDonalds for a unicorn sweater. WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE Y’ALL.
Additionally the original zone sparked spinoffs such as: Bunz Makeup Zone,and Bunz Pet Zone.
Apparently hipsters in Bushwick are using the Bunz trading app to trade for some dank, dank herb. If you scroll through the items in the New York Trade section of the app, you can see numerous references to “420” or “herb” in Bushwick, and I was able to get DM confirmation from 3 twitter users that they scored some green on the app near the Morgan and Jefferson stops. There is also plenty of beer for trade, and it seems like the app actively encourages people to trade tall cans as currency. AND BOY ARE TWITTER USERS NOTICING THIS.
To an extent the whole ‘you can’t date your friend’s exes’ rule makes sense but eventually you and your ex have to move on. In my personal life it is not a big deal for my exes to date one of my friends, because I’m friends with the majority of my exes so why not? With this in mind, I applaud Nina, Ian and Nikki for showing others that it is possible to be friends with your ex, and have your friends date your ex. So when rumors flew that the split of Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, and the start of Nikki Reed and Ian caused a girl fight I was confused.
This all sounds very complicated and as though I’m the girl explaining Ferris Bueller being sick to Ben Stein but let me break it down for you:
-Nina Dobrev is an actress (Vampire Diaries, Degrassi etc)
-Nikki Reed is also an actress (Twilight,Thirteen etc)
-Ian Somerhalder is, you guessed it, and actor! (Vampire Diaries)
-Nina and Nikki are friends (and were prior to the sparking of Nikki and Ian as a ship)
-Nina and Ian met on the set of their hit show ‘The Vampire Diaries’ back in 2009.
-The couple began dating in 2010, much like their characters #TeamDelena
-In May 2013 the couple split (cool, couples do that ok).
-In 2015 Ian and Nikki began dating
-In 2015 the internet flipped out because HOW COULD NIKKI DO THAT TO NINA?!…sigh.
-Ian and Nikki are now married (and fun fact are not really vampires)
Now that you are mostly caught up, let me continue.
The three slammed rumors of any feud with this Instagram photo from a dinner in Atlanta posted a week before Valentine’s Day:
It was accompanied with the following caption when posted by Somerhalder:
“Chilling with these two… After years of websites pretending these two badass ladies knew each other well and baseless, false information of back stabbing and hatred from low-brow websites filled the minds and hearts of fans… They finally were able to get together for their first real dinner. Let’s stop spreading hate everyone, there’s already too much of that right now in our world. Join in on the love. Only love here- always has been always will be. Media companies preying on the passion from vulnerable and or impressionable minds of fans to sell advertising through click-though traffic is a disease in our society. It’s poisonous. Let’s finish this series with respect and kindness and continue that in our lives. I think it’s time. What do you think? “
Festival season is approaching and who wouldn’t want to see a DRAGON AT THOSE FESTIVALS?! That is some Game Of Thrones sh*t no? As previously posted Heavy Meta is a 26’ long, 18.5’ tall metallic dragon vehicle with interactive fire, sound, kinetic, and light components. Built atop a 2001 GMC 3500 short bus, the project will be entirely designed and fabricated in Toronto. Its skin will be clad in hand-cut, hand-welded sheet metal, and its wings and mouth will articulate and shoot fire. Intended to debut at Burning Man 2017 but located in Toronto year-round, Heavy Meta will be one of Toronto’s only art cars, and certainly its largest. It will appear at music festivals, concerts, art events and regional burns in Ontario, Quebec and Michigan.
On March 3rd, the Heavy Meta crew will take over One Loft for the first fundraiser for the fire breathing art car but what can you expect at the event? Here are ten of the coolest things to prep for:
10. Future Viking Attire
NYFW meets Vikings meets burners? I assure you the fashion at the event will be Instastory worthy.
9. Meeting the Heavy Meta team
Dragons do not build themselves.
8. The Plounge
Urban Dictionary defines a plounge as:
Stands for “Plush Lounge”. A plounge is a space which has been created for the express purpose of lounging around in hedonistic bliss.
Get comfy, rest those dancing feet in a state of the art plounge!
7.Me, yes I will be there.
It is true.
6. RETURN OF THE JELO
(SectionZ, ZYON, facebook.com/JELOofficial)
JELO is a Canadian prime of Electronic Music. JELOs productions rock dancefloors, festivals and some of the biggest Burning Man camps. His music has been played by DJs like Pete Tong, Umek, Gareth Emery, Moguai, Kill The Noise, Bad Boy Bill, Morgan Page, Matt Zo, Above and Beyond, Funkagenda, Donald Glaude, DJ Dan and more. Some of these collaborations brought forth certified anthems such as “The Reward is Cheese”, a collab with deadmau5, which became a bonafide #1 hit on beatport.com and a house anthem the world round. “Donkey Punch” with Hatiras, became a top ten anthem on its own. Check out his newest collab with FWLR featuring a gritty 80s vibe, Victory Too Soon: https://www.soundcloud.com/jelo/victory-too-soon
A throne fit for you! Seriously, the photobooth is set to be a THRONE. #BaeOfThrones
4. A Hype Venue: One Loft
Experience One Loft on College St as it transforms into a dark and dangerous dragon’s lair to welcome Toronto’s first and only mechanical winged beast. Bring your weathered battle gear for a heavily metaphysical and metaphorical evening of fiery beats and ritual chants. The future is ours for the taking.
3. THE MUSIC, HOLY SH*T.
I’ve already covered that Jelo will be in attendance but he won’t be the only DJ making those Viking feet move with a slew of music from:
BEN CORMIER (DIRTY DECIBELS)
DUSTIN NANTAIS (MANUAL MUSIC, SISTRUM MUSIC)
MATT VON WILDE (SECRET SOCIETY)
2. The VR Headset Lounge (A personal fav of Mr.Steintology tbh)
House of VR is providing the party with 5 Samsung VR Headsets because THE FUTURE IS NOW. #WhatATimeToBeAlive
1. Happy Party Vibes
So it is safe to say this is a party NOT to be missed, help support art, Heavy Meta, and see me! For more info on the party, and how to grab tickets visit The official Heavy Meta site,be sure to follow the journey of the dragon on Instagram!
The TV personality, rapper,and author turns 26 today! You can go ahead and get yourself a present for HIS birthday by grabbing his book: www.gamethebook.com
Filmed in Toronto, rapper The Weeknd dropped his latest video off his album ‘Starboy’ yesterday. I think we all secretly wanted Selena Gomez to be in the video…
If you are not already addicted to Riverdale (which airs a new episode tonight on the CW) I’m not entirely sure what you are doing with your life then, but the revamped Archie comics turned TV series on Netflix is all sorts of sexy and mystery filled. It seems to be a combination of Pretty Little Liars and Scream, plus Cole Sprouse plays Jughead so it is worth the watch.
Toronto drag queen/superstar Sapphire Titha Reign took to Instagram with the incredible talent of photographer Quinton Cruickshanks to slay the whole damn game with their take on the iconic looks of Archie,Betty,Veronica. In this shot below featured on Sapphire’s Instagram this week we see how you can be a Betty, and a Veronica…and an Archie. (I’ve always been more of a Veronica myself tbh).
I know what you’re thinking, it HAS to be Dennis aka Newman who tries to steal all that dino DNA but ends up screwing up Jurassic Park as a theme park, pissing off Samuel L Jackson, and getting killed in the process (sorry did I not mention there are spoilers for a movie that came out in the 90s?). But no, this week I am taking it back to the person I wanted to see get eaten the most by a dinosaur BUT NEVER DID. THIS KID WHO GETS SCHOOLED AT THE BEGINNING OF THE FILM:
So smug looking, thinking he knows more about dinosaurs than Alan does! He reminds me of the brother in Matilda who I also hate. Additionally, the whole theory about Chris Pratt’s character in the remake actually being this kid all grown up can all just go away too.
Keeping it Canadian this week with Rookie Blue babe Missy Peregrym, perhaps this post will help a reboot of the series? Don’t worry, I’ll GLADLY audition for a role.
Move over Salt Bae, Trash Dove is here and ready to annoy the f*ck out of everyone!
“Trash Doves is a set of Facebook stickers featuring a large-eyed purple pigeon in various situations, the most notable of which is an animated sprite of the bird vigorously thrashing its head up and down. Shortly after its debut on Facebook in January 2016, the purple dove sticker set quickly became a viral subject of photoshopped parodies and image macros on the social media.
Florida artist and Adobe creative resident Syd Weller’s “Trash Doves” sticker set officially made its Facebook debut on January 31st, 2017, which included an animated emoji of a headbanging pigeon” KYM explains.
I feel as though 2017 isn’t getting the prime memes that we all love, and need in this cold, cold world. Sigh.
If you are bae-less there is always the heart shaped pizza and Netflix binge option?
MY BAE. Chance The Rapper is this week’s pick for #MCM#MCE.
It was announced today that Amal Clooney was pregnant with twins and expecting in June.
Perhaps the Clooney twins will team up with Beyonce’s twins to take over the world, or save America?
That 70’s Show is a cult classic TV show and a hit on Fox but the decade later try-to-hard show That 80’s Show? Too much. Cancelled after one season the show was really it’s own #TBT (before that was even a thing). That 80’s Show even starred Chyler Leigh (Supergirl), Glenn Howerton (It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia), and Brittany Daniel (Sweet Valley High) in 2002.
Fashion, music, and beauty are just a few of the things this week’s #TMITuesday feature covers on her Youtube channel. I had the pleasure of asking Caroline Burt, DJ, music producer and star of the Keeping up With The Kardashians spinoff Dash Dolls about her style, musical influences, her new video for Fake It and we may or may not talk about Neopets. Yea, you read that correctly: NEOPETS.
1. Who are your musical influences as a DJ/artist?
I come from the metal world, which may seem like a completely different world than the EDM world. They are both two complete extremes of two completely different genres. Metal relies solely on their instrumentals, and with EDM, every instrument (for the most part) is programmed on a computer. I like to call EDM the “Digital Breakdown”. The genres are almost exactly alike in time signatures and tempos. Growing up I was a huge fan of bands like Cohered and Cambria, The Used, and then as I got older I found myself really loving the EDM group called Nero, Foreign Beggars, and Pendulum. Rock and Metal are just still remaining huge influences in my own music.
2. As a Dash Doll which Kardashian/Jenner’s style do you feel you embody the best and why?
I am told daily that I am Kylie Jenner. I take it as a compliment! Kylie is one of the largest sex symbols right now and I can’t lie when saying that she looks damn good! I do think that I really connect to Kim’s white hair black leather phase that she had about a year or two ago before getting pregnant with Saint. Kim’s style fluctuates so much, and I have just always had a bit of edginess in my style, that I just always find myself relating more to Kylie. We both have this ounce of edgy in our style, and I always find ourselves almost syncing up with our looks, completely by accident. For instance, when I dyed my hair peach, I checked her snapchat and about a week later she had dyed her hair peach. I think we are both just very in tuned with the trends at the moment, and we take action on them!
3. Your latest video for “Fake It” has some really cool visuals and colors, can you tell me about the process in creating the video? Was it similar to creating the song?
Thank you! Creating both were extremely hard! “Fake it” was actually the last song to be released from my album because it was the hardest to complete. I wrote almost 5 different parts that were never used. Nothing seemed right, and nothing really clicked. I got horrible writers block, and the song almost drove me crazy.I flew home to Los Angeles from where I was recording for an entire week to let my brain rest so I could stop overthinking and complete “Fake It” in the most natural way. Finally, “Fake It” became my favorite song that I had ever done, and I wanted to go all out on the music video. I contacted my friend Joshua Shultz who I know has an amazing team and produces some dope music videos. I explained my vision, and we went right to work. I researched fun paint ideas for every room, I went to home depot bought about 20 different colors of pastel pinks, blues, purples ect… and went right to painting every single thing. I went to different antique furniture stores and rentals and picked each piece for the video myself, and I wrote the videos entire treatment. It was an insane amount of work, but I am so happy with the results and look what I got from it, a bangin’ video and a bangin’ song.
4. Since today is #TMITuesday can you tell the fans something they may not already know about you?
I’m down with Neopets.
5. Let’s get into your DJing life; You interned under Skrillex and have been doing some big gigs including Lord Disick’s birthday party so where do you feel most in your element Djing: At The Dash store, parties, or clubs?
Clubs and parties for sure. I love clubs because everyone is already stoked on being there, your job is just to keep them hyped up and stoked on being there so that they stay. I seem to be good at playing the stuff that people want to hear. I feel vibes super easily and sometimes 10 seconds into a song, I can feel that the vibe may not be right and I’ll transition out of that song right away.
6. What would you say is your ‘theme song’ and why?
Right now? Caroline by Amine, haha! If overall, I’d say Dollhouse by Melanie Martinez.
7. As a reality TV personality do you watch any other reality shows?
I love Dance Moms, & I tend to watch any reality show done under Bunim-Murray Productions. I also have a huge love for political talk shows such as Stephen Colbert and The Daily Show.
8. Which artist would you like to work with best and why?
Right now? I would love to work with Sia. She tweeted me after seeing Dash Dolls, and my heart right about stopped, but that is a huge stretch. I’d love to actually work with some rock producers right now and add elements of EDM into the work and see where that takes me. My voice is a one of a rock and rolls belter voice, and I think its time to embrace that.
9. As a fashion industry insider what do you think will be the biggest trend for 2017?
Layers. Not the traditional layering, but layering like wearing a lingerie bra on the outside of your shirt. Layering is becoming huge. The messy, grungy, I don’t care look is coming back, and I am so excited. I didn’t see much of that in 2016.
10. Whats next for you Caroline?
I am about to release a new song that I am so excited about. With that song I will be releasing a new music video! This one is even more thought out and I have spent 10x more time on planning this video than I did on “Fake It”, so I am extremely excited to see and hear the response from this song and video since I put an extra amount of work into them.
I’d love to play Neopets and do make up with Caroline, but while I wait for that to happen I promise to keep posting all new sh*t every week on thenikkisin.com!
From Vampire Academy to Shadow Hunters, to being hands down #relationshipgoals with Sarah Hyland .
Seriously how cute was it when Sarah posted on Insta about the snow when visiting him in Toronto last week?
Okay so I know I’m not going to make #Giordan happen as a couple name but cut me some slack it has been a long day. MTV is responsible for so many love stories via reality TV, and these two may not have met on their respective shows but they are just so gosh darn cute.
We met Jordan on the latest season of the The Real World, and perhaps she showed us she has a thing for AYTO guys when she and roommate Mike (who was the first to appear on AYTO and The Real World) were an item on the show.
Fast forward to 2017 and Instagram is blowing up with videos, and images of the megababe and Are You The One 4 star, and rapper Gio together (for the record a fellow megababe). Typically I do not like to perpetuate rumours but its pretty obvious from the kissing and two part song on Gio’s Soundcloud that they two are together.
Haters already getting their hits in on videos of the two on Insta with one user saying:
“I pray to god you treat her better than you did Kaylen”
In this case I think the fans out number the haters because the rest of the comments are all Giordan fans. Fans who can probably come up with a better name that Giordan.
Will this sequel-remake be a hit with horror fans? The film stars Laura Wiggins, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Johnny Galecki.
The rapper who dropped the video for ‘F That‘ in January turns 27 today and the crown remains on her head. I also just got word that Lil Debbie will be in Toronto for a show next month, stay tuned on this site for details, and a potential ticket giveaway!
The music icon announced today on her Instagram that she and husband Jay-Z were expecting their family to grow by 2. The twins’ first performance will be with Bey as she is set to headline Coachella this April.
February has just begun and social media is already flooded with awful memes about not having a Valentine, or bae.
Dating in general is hard, but dating as a millennial is brutal. Are you seeing that person? Are you dating? Is this my partner? My boyfriend? My girlfriend? WHO IS BAE? But ladies and gents you do not need to worry, you’re covered.
Star of MTV’s Are you The One 4, and rapper P.Muna who you may remember from a #TMITuesday interview said in a Facebook post on January 30th:
“ITS HERE!!! My book is on Amazon and in stores now. “GAME: Dating from the Millennial Male Perspective”. Its been a labor of love and I just want to thank everyone for their patience and support. ”

The wax figure that was unveiled January 23rd is a thing of nightmares and left me unsettled.
The La La Land actor had his likeliness sculpted into this horror for Madame Tussauds:
It gives me a guy on Tinder who messages you with “hi do you like music” “hello” “do you want to grab a drink?” and you never answer type vibe.
Sorry for the nightmares.
My typical #TBT posts are that of the wonderful 2007-09 times of Paris Hilton, Niole ritche, Lohan, and crazy Brit. Sometimes my posts are of songs from “back in the day” or hilarious trends. TODAY I GET SERIOUS WITH MC DONALD’S PIZZA Y’ALL.
It was real and it was f*cking delicious.
