I have an overactive imagination, a knack for awkwardness and I really think Kristen Wiig might be using me as the inspiration for some of her movie characters. Ps - I love music so much I would marry it.

Taylor Swift’s Poem About Emotional Downsizing, Summed Up In A Someecard.

Taylor skipped the interview for her British Vogue cover and decided to write a poem instead because life can be hard and sanity seems to be a pretty good goal.

The Trick to Holding On

Let go of the ones who hurt you
Let go of the ones you outgrow
Let go of the words they hurl your way
as you’re walking out the door
The only thing cut and dry
In this hedge-maze life
Is the fact that their words will cut
but your tears will dry

They don’t tell you this when you are young
You can’t hold on to everything
Can’t show up for everyone
You pick your poison
Or your cure
Phone numbers you know by heart
And the ones you don’t answer any more

Hold on to the faint recognition in
the eye of a stranger
As it catches you in its lustrous net
How quickly we become intertwined
How wonderful it is to forget
All the times your intuition failed you 
But it hasn’t killed you yet
Hold on to childlike whims and moonlight
swims and your blazing self-respect

And if you drive the roads of this town
Ones you’ve gone down so many times before
Flashback to all the times
Life nearly ran you off the road
But tonight your hand is steady
Suddenly you’ll know
The trick to holding on
Was all that letting go

Taylor Swift

Psst. Charli XCX, Work A Deal With Funko Pop! So We Can Collect All The Boys In “Boys”. Plz/Thx.

Source: ET

Charli XCX is back with a self-directed video starring a musical montage of males.

Did she turn the tables to objectify the guys or was she pointing out that women as viewers can be equally just as lecherous? Perhaps both.

The all star cast includes Khalid, Mark Ronson, Joey Bada$$, Brendan Urie, Diplo, Wiz Khalifa, Stormzy, Swet Shop Boys, Jack Antonoff, Ty Dolla $ign, Chromeo, Charlie Puth and I’ll let you figure out the other 50+ because that is half the fun.

More importantly, if she does work a deal with Funko Pop! so you can collect them all, do you take them out of the box??

I might.

You’d never know the challenges these kids face in and out of school by their big smiles but that’s what happens when Rihanna walks in a room. She traveled to Malawi, one of Africa’s poorest countries, to learn about the hurdles these children face.

“Joined by Former Australian Prime Minister and Board Chair of the GPE Julia Gillard and Global Citizen CEO Hugh Evans. She is calling on fans from all across the globe to help by donating to the Global Partnership for Education’s efforts. The organization’s goal is to raise $3.1 billion to help bring quality education to over 870 million children in 89 countries between 2018 and 2020.”

Old age might be tolerable living in a nursing home with The Foo Fighters. Ps – I call being their bubble bath nurse.

Foo Fighters released their first song in a couple years and the video will assure you some things don’t change. You can always count on fun with Foo. No word on their ninth studio album, but I’ll keep you posted.

Disclaimer: People Magazine may be a pseudo tabloid but I gotta give credit where credit is due. I’m not sure you can get any better than “Heavy Metal Gandalf”

And I’m serious about the nurse offer. This could be you Dave.
