BEST VIDEOS of 2011

Hello everyone!
So unfortunately, I don't blog much anymore...nowadays I'm keeping busy and harassing my facebook wall shit loads. But I thought it was worth making a post about my favorite music videos of the year 2011. These top 5 all contain great fashion, cinematography, creativity, sillyiness, epicness.
I personally believe the winners are, such as.....

5. Party - Beyonce
Synopsis: Beyonce being hipster and hanging out with normal hipster type ppl among others, whos minds are obviously not blown by the presence of a megastar @ a BBQ on a lovely summer's day.
Beyonce's looking cute & hot as usual, everyone is wearing rad clothes, and theres cool ppl who-are-way-cooler-than-you but HEY! its a Beyonce party, so EVERYone is dancing and having fun at least. AND there's a cool albino guy....I mean what more could you want?!

4. Blow - Ke$ha
Synopsis: What a fun & silly plot of a music video. Humans with unicorn heads, rainbow lazer guns, James Van Der Beek, the more random the better. Ke$ha even dares to take a shower and straightens her hair looking like a brand new sultry popstar! But don't get it twisted, its still Ke$ha....the reason I love this video? Cause it's so unapologetically ridiculous. Its pop music, chillax!
Besides...."she's taken over. Get used too it!" TOLD YA.

3. Teenage Dream - Katy Perry
Synopsis: The cinematography is just that - dreamy. Katy decides to give it a rest with all the gimmicks and makes a video thats tasteful, hipster, cute, fun, young and that's ultimately real and honest. Mrs. Brand frolicks with daYUM hot model (ohmy!not russell?) and goes "all the way" with him, without her drag queen make-up (so cute).
Thumbs up to the French director Yoann Lemoine who also directed the cinematic 

2. Marry The Night - Lady Gaga
Link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cggNqDAtJYU&ob=av2e
Synopsis: Talk about shoving 50 different videos, films, stories into ONE video. Jeeeeeeeeeeeeez! Gaga really is lazy and unambitious. This video is filled with so much I swear I could write a thesis about the fucking video. It's insane. In this video Lady Gaga really tells us her story through all her trials and tribulations. Rejection after rejection! Her madness! Her insecurites! Her drive and dream to be a star! Her decision to marry the night!..... And how in the end she got that record deal from Interscope that catapulted her succesful career. The music video at times reminds me of Girl Interrupted (she'd SO play the Britanny Murphy character, RIP), that low-budget Madonna made for TV movie I saw 3 summers ago about her journey pre-fame, Black Swan, Fame, Showgirls (the non-bitchy version) and Flashdance. This Lady does not like to stick to one story, style...you name it. It's like she threw up all her influences and her ego and said "Here world! THIS is my art." And you better fucking call it performance art, cause she's an artist. 
 The best part: the fierce choregraphy in the dance room - work it gurl! and her dancing in the rain with the fire. Apparently she revealed in an interview that the rain was unexpected, and the director and her crew said it was a health & saftey risk. What does Gaga say?
"Shoot that shit."
Priceless.

And the winner is....

1. We Found Love - Rihanna:
Synopsis: DUH! Despite the fact that the lyrics are fricking repetitive, who gives? It's all about the Calvin Harris music production, the build up is awesome, way to make an annoying trend (yes, dance music i'm talking to you) feel fresh and fun again. So, the music video....its Trainspotting! its Requim for a dream! it's Rihanna looking hot with a guy that coincidentally looks a lot like Chris Brown (but hotter). It's Rihanna wearing some of her coolest outfits and fucking around and being in a destructive relationship (sound familiar?)...its like Sid & Nancy, Ikke & Tina, Bobby & Whitney, Blake & Amy, Kate & Pete, , Rihanna &...basically,I could go on. Its beautiful, its ugly, its high, its low.
Its EVERYTHING.

Have a happy new year everyone!!!! 2012 baby...u betta since it might be the last one ;)

Hello!!!!!!!!!!!!

inspiration:

Just wanted to say a HELLLO to all my TASTYTHREADS followers.
I know its been ages. I miss doing this. But it consumes too much of my time. I have free internet on my phone so might consider doing a tumblr or something. But my main priority is writing music, getting my band together, studying music therapy, spending time with family & friends, skateboarding (finally!) and kissing cute boys. Fashion blogging is fun, but there's just more important things in my life then spending hours in front of a computer and posting pictures of clothes i can't afford (no offense to all the lovely fashion bloggers in da world.) I still love checking out all my favorite blogs AND even checking out my old posts - its like my diary! And I just want to thank you all for following and your comments. It's so amazing that people actually care about this blog other then myself LOL. All the best to you all. Might stop by to post on how my music is going (I want to make this thing global!) and if I decide to do a music & tastythreads tumblr, you'll be the first to know!!!!

LOTS OF LOVE!!!!

(source: elle)
everything about her: her hair, make up (brown eyeshadow, berry lips), the cut of her cute cute dress (need to find a similar one in h&m!) AND of course, her awesome cool incredible jewelry line (i literally want every single piece in these images!)

P.S: On a sorta-but-not-really different topic, was so excited to see Erin Wasson on America's Next Top Model in the latest episode!  She was showin' off her just as awesome jewelery line...Was so stoked :D there's some hot & fierce models this season.
