The 2016 Met Gala brought a lot of interesting outfit choices: the good, the bad, and the plain old ugly. This year’s theme was “Fashion in the Age of Technology,” a theme that many people decided to stray away from (Blake Lively, you look beautiful, but where is your loyalty to themes?!)

We’re all adults here, so we can admit that everyone is going to have their own opinion in regards to whether or not this year’s Lollapalooza lineup is good or not. That’s fair. Music is subjective and someone that I may despise may be a great fit for someone else. That’s why it’s so exciting! With that being said, I think that it’s easy to agree that the lineup is quite diverse in regards to genre.

I recently created a poll for my Twitter followers to take so I can see what my readers are interested seeing from me next. The topic that got the most votes (although all three options were extremely close in number), was to make a Spring 2016 playlist. I created one last year and wrote a post on it as well, so why not make it a tradition?

Last Thursday, I flew to Nashville, Tennessee to spend a few days with my friend, Taylor, from college. She’s from Nashville so I flew home with her for the weekend and we had a great time exploring the city.

Something that I always find super exciting about the start of a new year is all of the new music that will follow! Some may wonder how I manage to find these artists, and the answer is SPOTIFY! I’m definitely not the best human being for using the service, considering these artists barely get paid for any of the streams. But I can’t be too hard on myself, for I am in college and that just comes with being somewhat broke all of the time. Hopefully these musicians will forgive me since I’m giving them some free promo on my blog.
I compiled a list of 16 musicians that I’ve really been into lately. Read on to find out more!

Oscar Sunday: A night that many of us pop culture enthusiasts will stay up late for. While many Americans plan one Sunday a year around something very much different (The Superbowl), the rest of us clear our schedule for this annual event. I can’t say that I enjoy The Oscars more than The Grammys, but this year’s Oscars was definitely much more bearable to watch than the Grammys.

Whenever a band with a successful debut album releases their sophomore LP, they’re taking a risk. The risk that they are potentially releasing a second version of their debut: similar vibe, title, and aesthetic, or the risk that comes with completely changing their sound. What if the new sound turns off fans of the initial release? What if staying the same is a disappointment? Well, ladies and gentlemen, I’d say that the 1975 took a risk in completely changing their sound, yet still delivered a disappointing album with a few solid songs woven in the mix.
If you’re a huge The 1975 fan and you’re not suddenly interested in ripping my head off, keep reading to see what I think of the second album.
