You know you’re a washed up pop star when….

I’m not sure how I missed this news when it was announced, but ATTENTION: AARON CARTER IS PLAYING A CONCERT IN FARGO! The part of me that is still 12 years old is dying inside of excitement. I had a crush on Aaron Carter and definitely owned a copy of Aaron’s Party on CD.

When I heard this news, I had to investigate tickets… and this is when I realized how washed up Aaron Carter really is.

  1. Tickets only cost $20. Yes, there are cheap concerts, but come on at one point I would have paid a year’s worth of allowance to get tickets for an Aaron Carter concert!

    I have to say I much prefer little Aaron Carter. Thank God we didn't end up getting married.

    I have to say I much prefer little Aaron Carter. Thank God we didn’t end up getting married.

  2. I had never even heard of the (tiny) venue he is playing at. FYI, it’s at the Legacy Ballroom in Fargo… which the website says has a maximum capacity of 250 people. That’s the biggest venue this guy can book? Sad thing is they probably won’t even sell out!
  3. YOU CAN BUY A MEET AND GREET FOR $70. Yes, for $70 you can not only meet Aaron Carter after the show, but get a picture with him, 8 x 10 posters and autographs. So you can get all of that for less than the price of a pair of Sperrys. Is this real life?
  4. His tour is called “The After Party” tour. This made me LOL.

This kind of makes me feel bad for the kid. I think I would rather have not been famous at all than struggle to sell 250 concert tickets at hole-in-the-wall places across the country and sell a meet and greet for 7o bucks. For most of the big stars out there, you can’t even buy a meet and greet… they have to be won after you join their fan club. Poor Aaron.

The 21+ show in Fargo is June 13. Tickets can be purchased here, if you’re interested!

In the meantime, please enjoy this classic song. It’s my personal favorite from Aaron Carter and I must admit, even after all these years its still quite catchy.

I’m not sure why I love Ryan Lochte…. But I Do.

Oh, maybe this is why I’m in love with him?

Ryan Lochte

But do I really want to have a celeb crush on someone who wears a grill when accepting the highest honor in his field?

Ryan Lochte grill

Yes, yes I do. And here is why:

  1. He admitted that he pees in the pool.
  2. One of his favorite movies is What Women Want.
  3. He doesn’t know what a douchebag is, even though he’s called one all of the time. When he was asked about his portrayal as a douchebag, he said: “Douche bag? I don’t even know what is a douche bag, like what is it? Like what is the definition? … Like I really don’t know what it means, do you know?”
  4. He’s super good at interviews. “What defines me? Ryan Lochte.” So deep and profound.

  5. He has his own word: JEAH.
  6. He calls his friends the Lochterage and Lochte Nation. So basically he isn’t into himself at all.

Basically, he’s full of himself and kind of a dbag, but he’s hilarious and I just can’t get enough. Check out his show on E!, What Would Ryan Lochte Do if you are in need of some laughs!

JEAH!

 

 

 

WordPress tip: Make the most of your WordPress account

Over the last semester, I have been doing this blog as an assignment for my Online Communications class at MSUM. I’m not a WordPress Pro quite yet, but I’ve come up with a tip for fellow WordPress users to get the most of your account. My advice is to follow fellow bloggers! Here is how to find some blogs that will interest you.

  1. Explore topics you’re interested in. On your WordPress reader page, you will see this box on the right hand side. You can type in topics you’re interested in, or click explore topics to find some popular topics.
    Explore Topics
  2. You know how when you’re shopping online and something pops up on the bottom of the screen that says since you like this one shirt you may also like these other shoes? It’s usually pretty accurate and quite handy – WordPress does the same thing! Check out the blogs that WordPress says you may like.
    Blogs you may like
  3. Follow your friends on WordPress! Well, at least the ones you like anyways. WordPress can search your social media accounts to find which of your friends have a WordPress blog.

    Follow your friends

The more people you follow, the more followers you will likely get, which essentially means more views! And who doesn’t feel good when they see how many people have viewed their blog recently!?

What are your tips for making the most of your WordPress account? Let me know in the comments!

I just really love RHONJ.

Those of you that know me personally know that I am obsessed with the Real Housewives. I love them all: Orange County, New York City, Atlanta, Beverly Hills, New Jersey and Miami. Even the Real Housewives of D.C. had a place in my tv schedule (RIP). However, nothing gets my blood boiling like the Real Housewives of New Jersey. I’m obsessed with it, and I am way too attached. I think it might be a little unhealthy.

Teresa Guidice, who is kind of the most hated housewife ever, is my all time FAVORITE. I love Teresa. She is beautiful, real, funny and entertaining. I get really fired up when the season airs because I pay close attention to what other RHONJ fans are saying about the series on Facebook and Twitter. An overwhelming majority of Housewife fans are not on Team Teresa, so I get really fired up and yell at people on Twitter. Honestly, its embarrassing.

That awkward moment when your friend sends you this screenshot….

Last year I got so heated I just had to call out Jacqueline Laurita and Melissa Gorga on their hypocrisy. I must have gotten a little carried away because THEY BLOCKED ME ON TWITTER. Melissa, Joe, Jacqueline AND their PR agency all blocked me on twitter. Lolz. No worries though, I got a new twitter account and then followed them back. Ironically, one of my first few tweets was to Jacqueline about a different topic and she retweeted my tweet. If only she knew I was once a troll that was harassing her on twitter….

Anyways, one of my friends recently called me out for being Housewives obsessed on Facebook. It made me lol. Somedays I just can’t help myself. Some people love politics, I just happen to love the Housewives. It is what it is.

WordPress Plugins: category specific subscription menu

After looking into various WordPress plugins, I found one that I would probably use if I decide to move my blog to the .org site. I liked the plugin for a category specific RSS feed subscription menu. The menu can be added to a post, page or sidebar. This would allow users to subscribe to the categories on my blog that they are most interested in and get customized content for those interests.

Blog shoutout: ‘Stalker in Style’

I recently started following a blog on WordPress called Stalker in Style. It combines two of my favorite interests: stalking and fashion. The blog shares simple photos from the style world, both high fashion and celebrity style. It features high quality photos of a variety of styles- edgy, chic, boho- you name it! It’s great for seeing what is trending and for getting some style inspiration. If only my checking account could afford to dress like a celebrity! I’ll have to live vicariously through photos…. for now!

What are you favorite WordPress blogs to follow? Besides mine of course! Let me know in the comments.

Six Degrees of Separation: ‘Teen Mom’s’ Chelsea Houska

It’s a small world and when you live in South Dakota, it’s even smaller. I’m from a small town in Northeastern South Dakota by Aberdeen. Teen Mom star Chelsea Houska lives in Sioux Falls, which is about 3 1/2 hours south of my hometown. (Measuring distance in hours is a South Dakota thing.) I have a couple different paths to reach the Queen of big hair and leopard print, but I will share one connection.

My friend from high school met Chelsea’s hair stylist (who is now featured on Teen Mom as well) through mutual friends in the Twin Cities. He’s even cut my friend’s hair. So basically, my friend knows someone who knows Chelsea Houska. My connection to Chelsea then connects me to all of the other Teen Mom stars, and the rest of the MTV family. See, it really is a small world out there.

Also, there are multiple other connections can be made to connect me to Chelsea’s baby daddy Adam Lind. We have five Facebook friends in common. This is so exciting. One of my other high school friends was on a party bus with him and his new baby momma a couple months ago. Yeah, thats right… Adam knocked up another girl.

On a side note, I saw Chelsea at the Brown County Fair in Aberdeen last summer. She is a big Dierks Bentley fan and he was playing at there. She and a couple friends were drunk as a skunk walking around the fairgrounds. They even got to go backstage and meet Dierks.

Ugh… why am I not a famous reality TV star so I too can meet my favorite country stars at their concerts? My life is boring.

It's a small world. South Dakota is even smaller.

‘Teen Mom’ Farrah Abraham: Another hot mess to add to the list

Well folks, Farrah Abraham has done it again. Just when you think celebs can’t get any more messed up in their decision-making, they go and outdo themselves yet again.

TMZ reported that a sex tape featuring the Teen Mom star was being shopped around. When I first saw the headline, I gave Farrah the benefit of the doubt. I said what I say to myself whenever a celeb sex tape comes out: WHY DO FAMOUS PEOPLE CONTINUE TO FILM THEMSELVES DOING THE DIRTY? Like for real, your phone, social media, computers, etc get hacked all of the time. Why would you think this could happen and never get leaked?

Farrah frolicks around a beach in what is technically a swimsuit a few days after confirming the existence of a sex tape.

After further research on my beloved TMZ, I learned that Farrah commissioned the tape herself with adult film star James Deen. Here is part of the story according to TMZ:

Deen tells TMZ, he was approached by an unidentified porn company to shoot the porno with Farrah over the weekend … and they did. He says the plan was to pass the porn off as a “sex tape,” but the plan fell apart.

Deen believes the ruse began to unravel Sunday when he and Farrah were shot leaving the Vivid Entertainment offices, holding hands.

He says, “I think what happened is that [the porn company was] going to pass it off as a ‘sex tape’ and somebody saw us coming out of a building together and people asked me what’s going on … so I was like we’re making a porno!” (Deen wouldn’t say if the “company” was in fact Vivid.)

And the kicker … despite Farrah’s poorly-worded protests, Deen says she was the one behind it the whole time, telling us, “Everybody’s trying to make it this story, but really [Farrah] wanted to make a sex tape.”

Farrah finally confirmed that the tape exisited and gave a pretty lame excuse. She told Today.com this about the tape:

Farrah walks hand-in-hand with adult film star (and her sex tape co-star) James Deen.

“I wanted my own personal video made and photos taken for myself, when I am older I will have my best year to look back on,” Abraham told us.

“I’m happy to see my 21st year be done. I’ve learned a lot. As my young fans and others should expect I made sure my partner was tested and clean as well as contraception was used.

“This is just something I personally needed for me.”

Farrah was also photographed recently partying in lingerie.

Because every person needs to make a porno to really cement their growth as a person. I bet Farrah can’t wait to show her daughter Sophia the tape when she grows up. I guess sex tapes are the new family photo albums.

Farrah is also willing to sell the sex tape, but only if the price is right.

“As for the company who has a copy of my personal video, my lawyer is taking care of that matter,” she told TODAY.com. “I will not be settling for anything less than a couple million.”

Ryan Gosling is quite possibly the most beautiful person on the planet

TMZ said it best when they posted this about Ryan Gosling:”With his immaculately disheveled locks, intellectually superior statement glasses, perfectly grown out face scruff, miraculously sexy vintage-looking graphic t-shirt exposed through his supernaturally matched hoodie & jacket combo, His Holiness — who says he’s punishing us mortals by taking a break from acting — was spotted leaving a Manhattan hotel with what must be some sort of sacred text in hand.”

I can't even handle his gorgeousness.
