Earlier this week, one of my friends told me to watch this week’s Carpool Karaoke and I had no idea why I HAD to watch. Now, I finally watched and I seriously just had the best nine minutes of my life since I saw Britney in Vegas. This might be my favorite episode of Carpool Karaoke, so enjoy!
With everything going on in the world, it’s important to find things to make yourself smile. For me, this video does that. Grace is an amazing, cheerful, and talented singer. Everyone needs to see her perform this song she wrote herself!
Ever since The Grammys last night, I can’t stop watching Lady Gaga’s tribute to Davide Bowie. She did an amazing job, and everyone should watch!
Thursday night I was lucky enough to attend a free screening of Tumbledown. It was a super fun experience, filled with free popcorn and candy. The movie is about a woman whose husband died, and a fan/researcher wants to write a book about him and other famous musicians. Another main character is the state of Maine, specifically the views and the people. These three characters allow for an intimate and dynamic relationship to develop. After the screening, there was a Q & A with the Director and the writer. It was very interesting to hear about the creative process, and the steps they had to go through to get the film made and publicized.
If you’re looking for a quirky indie film to watch, this is definitely a good one. Rebecca Hall and Jason Sudeikis do an excellent job in this film, and really suck you into the experience with them.
Also, shout out to HelloGiggles for hosting the screening!
I’m so glad that Adele is back on the music scene. Her song “Hello” is exactly what we’ve been waiting for. Seriously, I’m so excited for her album to drop because I know the entire thing will be amazing.
Its been a little over a year since I can definitively say that I became a Swifty. Up until Taylor Swift’s Album 1989, I had no desire to listen to any of her music. However, once I heard “Shake It Off” on the radio, I was initiated into the Swifty club. I knew that I had to buy 1989 immediately. Over the past year, I have listened to 1989 endlessly, and I saw Taylor at one of her Los Angeles shows. Due to this instant obsession with 1989, once I heard that Ryan Adams was going to cover every single song on 1989, I immediately searched for it.
Ryan Adams’ version of 1989 is mellow, raw, and incredibly beautiful. I read somewhere that he decided to cover all of the songs from 1989 after his break up with Mandy Moore. You can definitely feel how he was feeling when he rewrote this album. I love both versions of 1989, but if you’re looking for a more mellow and pensive version to listen to, I recommend Ryan Adams’ version.
