10 TWITTER MOMENTS: LANA DEL REY AND JACK ANTONOFF ARE UP TO...SOMETHING?!

8/8/18
10 Twitter Moments

Thanks for joining me for the latest edition of We Are: The Guard's Twitter Moments this hotter-than-hot Hump Day! After all, what finer way to make yourself feel better about being stuck in an office for the next 72 hours than by catching up with the rich and famous, the majority of whom are passing this heatwave aboard luxury superyachts fitted with door-to-door AC (see: Blue Ivy)?! Jokes aside, here's hoping that the following 280-character highlights from Lana Del Rey, Alicia Keys, Halsey, King Princess, Mariah Carey, and more provide you with a temporary distraction from this insane weather while we hold out for some cooler temperatures this weekend!

LANA DEL REY AND JACK ANTONOFF ARE UP TO...SOMETHING?!

After two months of silence, Lana Del Rey returned to Twitter on Monday to share this photo of her posing alongside Bleachers frontman Jack Antonoff, and it's left me with SO MANY QUESTIONS! Does Lana have a new album on the way?! And is that new album produced by Jack?! I LITERALLY HAVE NO IDEA, but I hope that it won't be long until I find out the answers! *INSERT SHIFTY EYE EMOJI HERE*

 

BRONZE AVERY'S HOT TUB MOMENT

Nothing to see here, just Bronze Avery chilling in a hot tub and looking like AN ABSOLUTE SNACK! This LGBTQ artist has the looks AND the talent to match! Tell me, what more could you ask for in a pop star?! KEEP SLAYING, BRONZE!

 

ALICIA KEYS IS A BADASS

I'm not sure about you, but I'm SO here for No Fucks Given-era Alicia Keys! Ever since she ditched her make-up two years ago, she's been an absolute badass! If only I could feel this confident after forgetting to apply my concealer in the morning! Keep living your best life, Alicia!

 

AARON TAOS' PARENTS ARE RELATIONSHIP GOALS

Everything sucks, so let's take a moment to cheer ourselves up with Aaron Taos' ADORABLE parents. No, really, my heart is actually MELTING at these photos of the super cute duo eating ice cream together to celebrate their 35th anniversary. I mean, TOTAL RELATIONSHIP GOALS, right?! PS. Thanks for giving us Aaron, you guys. :)

 

HALSEY TWERKS IT IN SEOUL

From relationship goals, to TWERK GOALS! On Monday, Halsey took time out from hanging around with BTS in order to share this video of her twerking backstage to Chance the Rapper's verse in DJ Khaled's “No Brainer,” and to say that it's a MOOD would be an understatement! I'm serious, can someone book me a flight to Seoul ASAP, as clearly Miss. Frangipane is having a straight-up PARTY over there?!

 

KING PRINCESS IS A GAP STAR!

I didn't think that GAP would ever top their 2003 Missy Elliott and Madonna campaign, but HOW WRONG I WAS! 15 years on from that ICONIC team-up, the American retailer is back this August with another legendary commercial starring none other than Queer Queen King Princess! WORK THAT PREMIUM DENIM, GIRL!

 

MARIAH CAREY, QUEEN OF STRINGS

Mariah Carey: *Does or says anything*

Me:

yas queen

 

THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS TO KIM PETRAS

Thoughts and prayers to We Are: The Guard favorite Kim Petras during this difficult time. You're a warrior and a fighter, Kim, and I KNOW that you can make it through this. My AC briefly stopped working two weeks ago, and while it was one of the toughest experiences of my life to date, I most definitely came out a stronger person because of it. #Grateful #FirstWorldProblems

 

MOSS KENA IS ALL OF US

OMG! YES! Moss Kena is all of us! For real, though, if I see another #InMyFeelings challenge pop up on my Twitter feed, I'm going to go all Bruce Wayne on everyone's ass!

 

FREYA RIDINGS STOPS THE LONDON UNDERGROUND IN ITS TRACKS

Closing out with this footage of Freya Ridings quite literally stopping the London Underground in its tracks with this truly stunning rendition of her hit single “Lost Without You.” Why can't I come across someone like Freya during my London commute?! All I get is the occasional amateur busker playing “Wonderwall,” or perhaps “Don't Look Back in Anger” if I'm lucky. *Sigh*
