8 INSTAGRAM MOMENTS: MISSY ELLIOT’S WHITE SISTA SLAYS
Drum roll, everyone... Are you ready? It's time for everyone's favorite weekly installment of the Best of Instagram! In this column, we review the most enlightening, heartfelt, and downright ridiculous posts on the social media site from your favorite people, because we know how hard it is to keep up with Instagram. Ugh. The millenial struggle. We got Cardi B, JLO, and Marshmello this week so strap down and PAY ATTENTION. Are we all settled? Good. Let's go!
DIPLO & DILLON
Over this past weekend, Diplo and Dillon Francis performed back to back sets at HARD Summer in southern California (I know, I have FOMO too). The festival took place at a speedway, so naturally the two boys decided on dressing up as America's favorite racecar driver. So what do y'all think? Nailed it?
MISSY ELLIOT’S WHITE SISTER
MESSAGE wait I just found out I have a FUNKY WHITE SISTER but hold up she brought her homegirl to da cookout too she the one tiptoeing in the background with a cup of oodles & noodles in her hand Yo sis done made the elephant sound too I wasn’t ready for her to say put the on ya like I told ya in a low deep voiceshe straight up killed “Work it” with the yea yea yea at the beginning & the sound effects & all my funky white sis ft Miss Tippy Toe in the back
Easily my favorite vid in this bunch, White Missy Elliott is shown here absolutely SLAYING. WME does not skip a beat with the crass execution, her inflection and her hype-man in the back showing off some moves. You’re going to want to invite THIS aunt to your end of the summer BBQ. Trust.
A day in the life of the recently-wed couple shows us that Cardi B and Offset are like us. I mean, who DOESN’T love them some cookie cereal? Of course, I’ve never actually blown my entire paycheck on Chips Ahoy, but I guess that’s just the difference between me and superstars. Drats. Oh, and also, Cardi B might want to take charge of grocery shopping or maybe send another Migos.
Okay, so no one told Snoop that it has been a COOL minute since Dre handed his Beats company to Apple, but this doesn’t make this any less funnier. Take the constructive criticism, Dre!
Being the ever productive DJ (does this dude stop working?), Marshmello has decided to apply that work ethic into his challenge vids, combining the two biggest memes right now into one. I say A+ on the Keke aspect of it all, but that dancing… Sorry, dude. 6/10.
Will Smith’s videos have gradually become beloved treasure troves of knowledge, wisdom, and genuine empathy. This one is no different. No, really. I ain’t BULLshittin’ ya here. I’m just glad someone has the balls to be this transparent on camera. ;)
I love this song!! It’s a tradition here at Fenway Stadium where the Red Sox play at the bottom of the 8th inning to play #Sweetcaroline!! My mom said this song came out around the time I was born and her and my dad used to sing it to me but when the sweet Caroline part came they would sing Sweet Jennifer... so whenever I hear it I see a picture in my mind of my mommy and daddy singing to me as a baby and it always makes me happy inside and smile real big on the outside!! #lovemymommy #lovemydaddy #sweetcaroline #sweetjennifer #yankees #redsox #sundaynightbaseball #summertimefun
Today I found out two things: that JLO is a Red Sox fan, and that she also loves Neil Diamond. Yes, I’m surprised too. Anyway this is a feel-good insta Post if I’ve ever seen it. Watch it if you’re feeling nostalgic. :)
Rounding out our best of Instagram is our girl Halsey having herself the time of her life backstage in Seoul. MFW it’s pay-day, to be honest!
I will see you on the other side, cities — and have a great weekend.
