DStv MVCAs: Best Fashion

I can’t be the only person who has noticed that South African celebrities are killing the fashion game! From bold looks to classic styles, they’ve been bringing the best of the best when they step out onto the red carpet.

I had to do a piece on DStv.com about the winners from the weekend’s DStv Mzansi Viewers’ Choice Awards and boy did I marvel at the glitz and glam. Did I have some fomo about not being there? Of course, but I still enjoyed taking in all the looks from my TV screen and smartphone.

Interview I Konrad Giering from Disney on Ice

As you’re all well aware, I adore everything to do with Walt Disney… which includes all of the productions that come out from the House of Mousse. I knew I didn’t want to miss the Wonderful World of Disney on Ice when it toured South Africa (like I always do).

I was really interested to find out that there would be a South African couple a part of the production, Yolande and Konrad Giering. The two are the definition of a Disney love story: having met when they were little, fell in love and now ice skate together! Talk about adorable.

Who is BTS?

The 2017 Billboard Music Awards are tonight/tomorrow and I'm really excited for it! Not only is the Queen, her Minajesty, Nicki Minaj opening he show (the Kingdom rejoices) but BTS will be in attendance too! Rumour is they could be the special performers too, but we're not sure. The question is: who is BTS? Known as Bangtan Boys, these talented guys hail from South Korea and are currently one of the most popular Korean boy groups. They debuted in 2013, but I feel the popularity has really skyrocketed since releasing their second full album Wings in 2016. Wait, why am I posting about them? Well, they've been nominated for Top Social Artist up against the likes of Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber. It's a pretty big deal to be acknowledged by such a well-known awards show. Currently, the boys seem to be winning with the Army (the fandom name) really dedicated to see them...

Is Kylie Jenner the lead singer of Terror Jr?

There's two things I love at the beginning of the week: 1. a good celebrity story and 2. news about Kylie Jenner - sometimes in that order, other times reversed. I mean, who doesn't love the youngest Kardashian-Jenner? So, I don't need to re-hash the obvious, Kylie has her own cosmetics line. Sometime back she released some lip glosses and to promote it released a really cool music video "Glosses" starring herself and her friends as well as a song by a hot new group, Terror Jr. Seems normal, right? Well, the thing is, Terror Jr sure are...

Is Ariana Grande a diva?

I recently posted a review on Ariana Grande’s latest album, Dangerous Woman. When I wrote it, I got thinking about the media and what they’ve said about Ariana. I’ve grown up watching Ari as Cat on Victorious and quite simply adored her. She may have been known for playing a ditzy role, but the girl has some impressive vocal pipes that really garnered her the worldwide attention she deserved. But, growing up in the spotlight ain’t easy and some of her actions have been a bit questionable.

2016 MTV VMA Fashion

Naturally, the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards did not disappoint – both on the red carpet and on stage. The looks brought definitely got us talking. With Beyonce taking Blue Ivy as her date in matching sequined outfits to Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill looking adorable, there were so many great moments before the big event occurred.

Jordyn Woods

Talk about the perfect time to post this, on a Wednesday… Woman Crush Wednesday anyone? Anywho, I felt the need to share my appreciation towards Jordyn Woods. Don’t know who she is? I’d forgive you, just for today, but she’s known for being Kylie Jenner’s best friend. There’s more to her than just being the youngest Jenner’s BFF, but without Kylie I’m not sure we’d have been introduced to the epic Jordyn.

Jordyn wasn’t always someone I had a keen interest for initially because I wasn’t big into Kardashian/Jenner news but the main thing that drew me to her was her cute friendship with Kylie. These girls have BEEN friends. It’s literal #FriendshipGoals each time either J or K post a photo or video online. As much as I want to talk about their friendship, let me leave that for another day. Can we just have several moments for Jordyn herself?

What I really admire about Jordyn is how real she is and down-to-earth. You can attempt to deny this, but it’s pretty event each time the girl shares something. Another big factor as to why I adore her is her gradual weightless which is pretty darn inspiring. Can we just give her a round of applause? I remember how she looked a few years back – where she was still so stunning – and now, there’s no denying the hard work she put in to look so good! At the same time, I just like how she has come into her own. She’s also just become such a majorly relatable figure. She doesn’t get enough props in my opinion.

I quite like her style and decided to share some of her looks and photoshoot pics below. Her clothing is to die for! Basically, she is all the goals and I’d love to one day sit down and speak to her. I can just imagine all the real talk and motivation that would come out from it. One day, right?

#Selenator

It's no surprise I'm a Selenator (Selena Gomez fan - for those out of the loop). I've loved her during her Barney days - of course - then re-discovered her on Disney and wrote about her a ton of times on here. If you didn't know, Selena is currently on her Revival tour and her instagram is giving me major FOMO. Like, serious FOMO. If I could, I would fly over there to North America to watch it. I love how she makes an effort to go outside and meet fans and take a photo with all of them for her Insta. What I wouldn't give to meet her, she's so beautiful and sweet.  Having major FOMO, I decided to post some of the snaps from her Insta here in the hope that one day I can say "I watch her live in concert". Here are some photos of the Revival concert...

Pinkprint Tour Experience & Meeting Nicki Minaj

Wow, is this real life? Am I sitting down to write this? I have to take several moments because I'm unsure. I shot a video for this, but the lighting was less than desirable towards the end. Naturally this was the night before going to China so I had no time to re-shoot. I've decided to shoot it again when I return because I honestly need you all to sit down and watch what I have to say because it's still so surreal. I'm going to do a quick overview of the Nicki Minaj concert. When I return expect a more detailed look. I can't leave without sharing some of my feelings - which, again, don't feel real. I hope you enjoy this. <3 The Pinkprint Concert I went to both Johannesburg shows - 17 and 18 March. For the first show I was Golden Circle - right by the rail! When Onika came...
