INSTAGRAM MOMENTS: Learning The Alphabet With Bebe Rexha
In the blink of an eye, it feels like I’ve gone from an uneventful 2018 music year to — whoa!! New Kanye releases?! KIDS SEE GHOSTS??? Jorja Smith’s debut album??? This year is FINALLY interesting!! But let’s be honest, Instagram has STAYED consistently interesting throughout the months. I took a break from Instagram this weekend because no one needed to know I was hanging out with my ex-boyfriend, but I logged back on JUST for you all last night to give you the best of the best. So happy start of the week, and let’s get down to it.
BRITNEY SPEARS IS THE COOLEST MOM
Britney Spears has the most fascinating social media profiles in my opinion, because she’s got the strangest charm to her that I can’t shake off since I’ve been stanning for her from way back in elementary. Here we have a flat joke about her and her adorable kids, and at moments, it feels like my mom might as well could have made this video. Except it’s Britney Spears and my mom could never hope to be as cool as her.
DUA LIPA KILLING IT
Dua Lipa kicked off her tour last week, and her photos from this tour are slowly starting to trickle into her Instagram page. She’s looking adorable in denim overalls — but make sure to check out her Bonnaroo photos over the weekend as well. Girl is killing it.
B IS FOR BEBE REXHA
I don’t really know what to make of this video, least of all what to SAY, except that I think maybe singer Bebe Rexha and I share the same humor — and that humor is weed-induced YouTube surfing, watching strange videos with NO context and poor editing that somehow make these clips even funnier. Watch this at 3 AM with no sleep because you’ll be crying.
ARIANA GRANDE IS PERFECTION
UGH. This woman pisses me off. First she hooks up with SNL cast member Pete Davidson, and then her Instagram account just EXPLODES with cute-AF couple photos that have been making me wretchedly sick. She keeps teasing me with possible collaborations (a NEW Nicki collab coming THIS WEEK??), and when she’s NOT constantly reminding me that I do not have her next release in my ears yet, she takes photos like these. If you told me about a year ago that I would be OBSESSED with a Nickelodeon star in 2018, I would have laughed in your face. Now, just look at me.
ASAP ROCKY QUICKIE
We have yet to discuss A$AP Rocky’s new album — well, it’s good. The ever-innovative and ever-changing rapper has released a video already for one of his tracks, so best check it out on YouTube — or simply watch this clip. TESTING is out now.
MOBY ON THE KEYS
Sometimes, I love Moby, and sometimes he writes controversial op-eds that minimize socio-economic problems. It’s one or the other sometimes. But the Best Moby is a Moby on Sunday morning, playing a piano, lulling me back into my weekend dog naps.
MARSHMELLO DANCE OFF
To end our Best of Instagram list, I present you this adorable video of singer/performer Shirley Setia teaching Marshmello how to dance and get his groove on. It’s a C+ in execution but an A in effort. Bravo, you two.
Hit me up in a week, y’all, and we’ll do this again. Stay classy!
