6 INSTAGRAM MOMENTS: CHARLI XCX IS OFFICIALLY A F*CKING DIVA
Hello, all you precious babes — It is time yet again for another weekly installment of our Best of Instagram. We know you must have been busy thus far, gearing for the Fourth of July, blasting Lana Del Rey’s “National Anthem” whenever you can and pretending you’re working hard in the office for the short week. I feel ya. Take a break! Relax for now and wind down with our post featuring Cardi B, Dillon Francis, and Charli XCX. Those Independence Day burgers will just have to wait.
CARDI B'S BABY
Cardi B is ready to POP these days, which is crazy to me because with the hubbub of her marriage to Migos’ Offset, it’s like I nearly forgot she was pregnant. Doesn’t it feel like she’s been pregnant for a year?? Or has my sense of time truly been destroyed with the ennui of my 20s? Cardi B’s kid knows what I’m talking about though. That baby is ITCHING to get out, which means it’s time to start an office pool. I’m putting 20 bucks on her giving birth two weeks from now. Any takers?
RICH BRIAN, JOJI, NIKI
Our jam session Instagram clip of the week is this lovely Sunday morning relaxer; Rich Brian showing off some drumming skills I didn’t even know he had, Joji casually playing along with the percussion via piano, and Niki… well, chilling in the back. There is way too much talent in this video, it’s making me feel hella intimidated.
POST MALONE & THE TRAP MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY (AT LEAST ACCORDING TO DIPLO.)
A candid from what I assume was before Post Malone’s big concert at the Hollywood Bowl, this is already a top contender for best Insta pic of 2018. Name a MORE ICONIC DUO than one of the biggest acts in both the hip hop and pop world, and a Mustached “I haven’t showered since Coachella” Justin Bieber. Yeah, I’ll wait.
To celebrate this coming holiday, Dillon Francis has released a brand new moombahton mix and this fire Fourth of July pic to accompany it. Ummm, also iconic. I haven’t seen something so American since Beyoncé performed at the CMAs.
“I am officially a f*cking diva now,” Charli starts her behind the scenes vid, but she has always been my QUEEN since her True Romance release years ago. She has two new songs out right now and as you might expect, they are your next summer bangers. In the meantime though, she’s just finished filming a video for “5 in the Morning” so you 100% need to watch it, okay??
MNEK + HAILEE
You know you and your new song have made it when they garner Snapchat/Instagram filters. We’re closing you out this week with this endearing video from English artist MNEK and his partner-in-crime Hailee Steinfeld. Ah, just like us. Making cute faces through a filtered lens and being downright adorable.
Stay safe out there, fam! Until next time.
