Master of None is a show that Netflix released in November. I was a little late to the party and just binge watched it after reading how amazing the show was, and let me just say, the raving reviews did not prepare me for how hard I fell in love with this show. Season 1 has 10 episodes that follow the story of Dev as he lives his life in New York City as an actor. It focuses on working a job you don’t love, the hardships of relationships, and many other aspects of life we have to deal with and don’t normally get to see portrayed on TV. So if its wonderful reviews can’t convince you to give the show a try, here’s a little more about the cast and the show that might change your mind.

Aziz Ansari as Dev

First we start with the main character of the show, Dev. Dev is awesome. Dev is hilarious and caring but also very, very real. He’s not the best at relationships or compromising and sometimes tries too hard. But for all his faults, Dev is a great character and the show has you rooting for his success. He is an actor, but mainly in commercials. He does land a role in a movie, but that goes awry quickly. Dev is very determined to never play the stereotypical Indian guy role, refusing to do an accent because he does not have one. Most of the show focuses on Dev’s attempts at relationships and even when he does or says something to a girl that makes you cringe, you still want him to be happy by the end of the episode. Overall, an incredible and very likeable main character.

Noël Wells as Rachel

Rachel plays Dev’s main love interest. In the first episode, the show opens with the couple taking a very awkward cab ride to go buy Plan B after the condom break. After they say some uncomfortable goodbyes, we don’t see Rachel again until a few episodes later. The two take an impulsive trip to Tennessee and you get to see how they interact together, sometimes awkwardly, sometimes hilarious and sometimes angry. Towards the end of the season, the couple face a lot of conflict in that they don’t know if they’re right for each other. Dev and Rachel are one of the most realistic couples I have ever seen on TV, honestly.

Lena Waithe as Denise

Denise is one of three really good friends that Dev has throughout the show. She is gay and spends most of her time trying to give Dev girl advice, which occasionally backfires. For example, Dev has the opportunity to sleep with a married woman and Denise advises him to take the chance. After he does sleep with the woman, Denise criticizes Dev asking him why he would do that, confusing the heck out of Dev. Again, another very real and very likeable character.

Eric Wareheim as Arnold

Arnold is another good friend of Dev and provides even more comedy for the show. Watching him interact with anyone is always certain to make you smile. He’s always there to listen to his friend’s problems, even if they don’t listen to his. Arnold isn’t too hugely important, plot wise, but watching him adopt a robot seal is definitely one of the highlights of the show.

Kelvin Yu as Brian

Brian is Dev’s third close friend and like everyone else in the show, is very funny and likeable, but also very sweet. In the second episode, Dev and Brian realize how much their immigrant parents sacrificed for them and Brian comes up with the idea of taking them out to dinner and hearing their stories as a sort of thank you to them. At the dinner, the two learn how harsh life was for their parents which leads to a heartwarming conversation that brings them all a little closer.

With all that said, these are just the main characters of Master of None. There are many other people that help shape the show, but these five characters are who make the show what it is. You see what they see and how they see it and you can’t help but to relate. So please, do yourself a favor and make your week a little brighter by watching this wonderful show.

#Girlpower. I was given this idea (Thanks Ading Andy) to talk about Feminism and to be honest, I didn’t know what I wanted to say exactly. But then everything came out like word vomit and I realized there’s so much to say but where do I even start? I want to applaud all the women out there being kickass in their field and fighting for what’s right. I’m sorry I had to cut this in two pieces but did you really wanna sit there watching a ten-twelve minute video? What women do you admire? Let me know!

Celebrity Crush: Ian Somerhalder of ‘The Vampire Diaries’

In my sophomore year of high school, I had grown tired of all my friends at the lunch table raving about some show about vampires. I finally caved and went home that day and pulled the show up online.

This began my week or so long binge-watching of the very popular CW show The Vampire Diaries. I hadn’t expected to fall in love with the show. Honestly, from listening to friends talk about it, I expected some cheesy romance show where the characters happened to be vampires. However, the drama combined with comedy and very likeable and relatable characters drew me in.

But the number one reason for my addiction?

Ian Somerhalder and his amazing acting as his character Damon Salvatore. I can rant and rave about Ian and his character Damon for days, but let’s just stick with the basics.

Let’s just start off with how handsome he is.

Not only is Damon charmingly sarcastic, he’s also portrayed by the beyond attractive Ian. It’s a little ridiculous.

He’s also very into promoting The Vampire Diaries by posting awesome pictures from the set.

Outside of the show, he is very active in saving animals from cruelty and helping anyway he can.

Overall, Ian Somerhalder was the best thing to happen to The Vampire Diaries because his good looks and charm have been bringing all the girls to the yard for seven seasons now. If you haven’t given the show a chance, take my word for it and begin your Netflix binge right now. You will not regret it.

Weird and much random topics but look, this is all over my feed and this needed to be addressed. There’s the cup controversy (when it really isn’t that big of a deal), the crazy expensive meet and greets and clip-on man buns. Yes, clip-on man buns are a real thing. Do not ask me why. What are your guys’ thoughts on these? Let me know down below on what you think about these things and/or what I should talk about next week!

My Amazing (Imaginary) Celeb New Year’s Bash

(Image Credit: camrocker)

(Image Credit: camrocker)

Recently, I’ve been wondering what the perfect New Year’s Eve would be like. Every time New Year’s comes up in a movie or a TV show, it’s always made out to be such a glamorous and fun affair. Key example? When Harry Met Sally. Best New Year’s scene ever.  

As yet another New Year’s Eve approaches, I’ve found myself reflecting on the eves of New Years past and they’ve been, well a little different than the Hollywood versions. There was the one where my friend and I opted not to go out and instead found ourselves sweaty and disgusting messes after playing too much Just Dance. Then there was the New Year’s where I worked the night shift and was asked by all my customers why I wasn’t out on a date. Then there was the year when my aunt from Florida came up, practically forced my family to go up to a cabin in Maine, and then later, rather melodramatically, exclaimed “For God’s sake, you girls should both be out with dates!” which obviously resulted with my sister and I crying over our pathetic existence as the clock struck midnight.

Last year’s was a bit better, minus the falling down a flight of stairs in front of a roomful of people I didn’t know and accidentally shattering a glass no more than two minutes after recovering from the first mishap. Needless to say, when it comes to this New Year’s Eve, I’m not holding my breath. Instead, I’ll imagine what it would be like to be going to have some amazing loft party with a few of my closest celebrity friends. Let’s see…

Jimmy Fallon, Taylor Swift, and I would have spent at least two weeks planning the ultimate New Year’s Eve bash. Jimmy will take care of all of the amazing games, and naturally, the Roots will provide the soundtrack. Taylor will do her thing and set up some fantastic photo booth where my guests will take ridiculously goofy photos that will wind up going viral on Instagram.

My two BFFs, Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer, will stumble in early together and start cracking jokes immediately. This will cause me to laugh so hard that tears will fill my eyes, smudging the mascara and eyeliner that I applied so meticulously to my face, but I won’t even be mad about it.

Will Ferrell will arrive next, dressed as Bro Santa, and spend the rest of the evening causing Jimmy to break out in fits of giggles every 20 seconds. Naturally, the entire cast of SNL‘s past will wind up at my door following the video Jimmy posts to his Facebook page.

While the funny people do their thing and Taylor chases my cat around with antlers she made out of one of my old dish towels, the Brits will finally arrive. Colin Firth, ever a gentleman, will have brought me a new journal to start for the new year. Tom Hiddleston will get the dance party started, and Ian McKellan and Patrick Stewart will be giving an impromptu performance of their new two man act, When Gandalf Met Captain Jean-Luc Picard.

At 11:30, Ellen Degeneres will drag Rihanna in and that girl will finally give me my money and all will be right with the world. Everyone will be having a fantastic time while Drake passes around cups of his Hot-toddie Bling, and I will have escaped for a quiet moment of reflection, staring out the window of my bedroom overlooking the sea of lights that is NYC. It begins snowing, and a small, sad smile finds its way to my lips.

“This night was almost perfect…” I’ll say quietly out loud.

“It is perfect,” a voice will say from my doorway. I turn around and, gasp! It’s him, Star-Lord.

He takes my hand and leads me back out to my fabulous friends just as the countdown to midnight begins. We kiss a firework-inducing kiss just as Meryl Streep walks in and yells out “LET’S BREAK THE INTERNET PART INFINITY!” Naturally, the most incredible picture of all time is then taken and I go down in New Year’s Eve history.

And that, my friends, is the perfect New Year’s Eve. The Daily Quirk wishes you and yours a very happy, healthy, and quirky New Year!

Celebrity Crush: Kerry Washington

I’ve got a girl crush and I am in no way ashamed. If you’ve ever watched any piece of Kerry Washington’s work you’ll know why in an instant. Not only is she one of the most beautiful people on this planet, but she’s one of the most talented as well.

If you’re not familiar with Washington, you might know her as Olivia Pope on ABC’s Scandal. She plays the high-profile Washington “fixer” who just happens to fall in love with the married President. If you haven’t seen it, you should start watching now. And if you’re looking for an example of Washington’s talent, you should take a look at her monologues from the show. INCREDIBLE.

And if television isn’t your thing and you’re more into movies, she has plenty of those to go around. Check her out in Ray and Django: Unchained, where she played wife to Jamie Foxx in both, or in the early 2000s hit Save the Last Dance. Regardless of what film you choose, I promise you’ll be impressed.

I am obsessed with Kerry Washington’s sense of style, as is most of the fashion world. I can’t say that I’ve ever seen an outfit that I didn’t like on her. She is absolutely stunning and I’m pretty certain she has the ability to wear a trash bag and still look like complete perfection. All you have to do is open up any weekly tabloid or fashion magazine and she’ll be right on top of the best-dressed list every week!

If none of these aspects put you half in love with Kerry Washington as I am, maybe her personality will do the trick. When watching her do panels for Scandal or her other pieces of work, she’s loud and peppy and always has a smile on her face! I can only imagine that she’s a person that makes everyone around her want to smile, and what’s a better trait in a person than that?  Her charities include the Allstate Purple Purse Foundation which combats domestic violence, as well as the Boys & Girls club, and a Turnaround Arts, a government program to help low-performing schools through the use of the visual and performing arts.

Washington spends more of her time doing good for others than she spends on herself, and that is the true reason for my girl crush! If you can think of any reasons I didn’t list for why we love Kerry, let me know in the comments!

Is Amy Schumer’s nude photo brave? We say YES!

(Image Credit: Pirelli)

(Image Credit: Pirelli)

By now, we’ve all seen the photo of Amy Schumer that will appear in next year’s Pirelli calendar. Apparently, my initial reaction to it was far mellower than the the rest of the world’s. I wasn’t overcome by shock, extreme joy, anger or disgust. I didn’t feel the earth move beneath my feet in a quake of feminist pride. Instead I felt a simple “good for you, Amy.”

Would I have given her a fist bump if we were on fist bump status? Yes. The funny girl’s doing her thang and GNF about it; I can respect that. And I can respect her choice to strip down, because why not? Hell, I can even respect that random cup of coffee she’s choosing to drink in nothing but heels and panties because, let’s face it, we all like to feel like a badass bitch sometimes who will do whatever she wants, even if that means just wearing a killer pair of heels and skimpy underwear while drinking a chai latte. What I can’t respect is the the ridiculous backlash she is receiving, and how the use of the word “brave” to describe the photo has backfired in the worst way possible.

A lot of people were delighted when they saw Schumer’s photo, along with its witty caption of “Beautiful, gross, strong, thin, fat, pretty, ugly, sexy, disgusting, flawless, woman.” The adjectives Schumer threw out there were a list of words that could easily be hurled at the photograph, based on whoever was looking at it. Some people might be fans, some might be critics, some might be neutral, but all would have something to say. Instead of waiting for it, she presented it, realizing that everyone has their own views and opinions. Lo and behold, the public had a lot to say about it, and just as Schumer’s caption predicted, there was no general consensus.

As a woman who from time to time struggles with my own body image, I saw Schumer’s photo and was happy. Sweet, I thought, here’s a woman who more what the general population can relate to. She’s not a size zero model, she doesn’t have Kim Kardashian’s ass, and she likes Chipotle and beer just as much as the rest of us. She’s a busy woman, like many women are, whose main priority is not the gym, but the other hundreds of things she still doesn’t really have the time to do. She was owning who she was, and most importantly, she wasn’t ashamed of who she was or what “flaws” she might have as decided by the world of Hollywood and fashion magazines. Some people even ventured to call what she did “brave.”

The word brave, like most words, has several connotations. Here are two of them.

  1. ADJECTIVE

ready to face and endure danger or pain; showing courage:“a brave soldier”

  1. VERB

to endure or face (unpleasant conditions or behavior) without showing fear

The first definition describes a person. The second describes what a person does. People who are brave often do show courage, and in more extreme cases, they willingly face and endure danger or pain. People who brave something do things that they know may result in unpleasant consequences, but they forge forward anyway to take a stance or to prove a point.

Upon hearing that people thought Amy Schumer was “brave” for her actions, haters jumped all over the topic. The adjective brave should be reserved for only certain types of people: soldiers, police officers, firefighters, cancer fighters – just to name a few. And I agree- this is a word that we shouldn’t use lightly. You don’t apply it to every little thing. You don’t want to generalize its meaning. But do we not also use this word as a form of encouragement? When young kids are afraid to be themselves, do we not tell them to be brave? When our friends embark on a new journey, is brave an inappropriate way to label their actions? Did Sara Barielles not write a smash hit that implores all of us to do brave things in our everyday lives?

Amy Schumer posing nearly naked for a magazine is not the bravest thing anyone has ever done by a long shot. What’s brave is that she was willing to brave the onslaught of criticism and nasty remarks that were to come her way. What’s brave is the giant middle, finger she’s giving to any man or woman that tries to tell her that her body is not the ideal type. While the topic was trending on Facebook, one popular Facebook personality took it upon himself to comment on the photo, saying there was nothing brave about posting a disgusting photo of yourself. He went on  to call Schumer fat, ugly, and lazy, comparing her to women who “take care of themselves.” He completely demeaned the woman, acting like no person on Earth could ever find her physically attractive. THIS is why Amy is brave, you POS – for posting a photo that would receive such confidence-shattering slander as the garbage you posted. What makes her BRAVE is for not letting the millions of comments like yours break her.

Schumer was not posing for this picture so others would call her the sexiest woman on the planet, she posed for the picture to show that it’s ok to consider yourself a beautiful and strong woman who doesn’t need the confirmation of others to make herself feel so. Women as a whole need to stop analyzing what everyone and their mother thinks – anyone who has the time to try to bring you down is clearly lacking something in their own life. It’s been shouted at us for years that everyone comes in different shapes and sizes, and we can preach the idea as much as we want. We can go on to tell others that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or we can start to live it and stop passing off judgement on others.

You are brave Amy, just like a million other people who have gone out on a limb to prove a point. Thanks for showing us what it is to be a self-assured and confident woman who doesn’t need the approval of anyone else to tell her that she rocks.

Cast Catch-Up: ‘Home Alone’

(Image Credit: Fox)

(Image Credit: Fox)

Home Alone can be seen everywhere around Christmastime. Luckily, it happens to be one of my family’s favorite holiday movies. The movie came out right before I was born, and I wouldn’t be surprised if I’ve seen it almost every year since then. There’s just something about a little kid beating up two grown men that screams family time. Plus, a major part of Home Alone is the idea that family should be together on the holidays.

Since Home Alone came out 25 years ago, we at The Daily Quirk thought it would be fun to take a look at where the stars of the movie are today. Read on to get your answers!

Macaulay Culkin (Kevin McCallister)

Only ten when the movie premiered, Macaulay Culkin is now grown up. For several years after his star-making performance in Home Alone, he continued acting in some well-known movies, including the Home Alone sequel, My Girl, The Pagemaster and Richie Rich. Due to the latter two movies’ poor showings at the box office, as well as family issues, Culkin stayed away from acting for almost a decade.

When he finally returned to the profession, it was in mature roles in movies like Saved! and Party Monster. Unlike many child stars, he was able to shed his cutesy image and received critical acclaim, but Culkin has only worked sporadically in the years since. Of note, he had a recurring role on NBC’s Kings and did some voice work for Robot Chicken. Most recently, it appears he’s taken to doing cameos, as he appeared as himself on The Jim Gaffigan Show and will show up in the upcoming Zoolander No. 2.

Apart from acting, Culkin wrote a semi-autobiographical novel called Junior, which dealt with his child stardom and his relationship with his father, in 2006. He is also part of a band named The Pizza Underground that mostly parodies songs by The Velvet Underground.

Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern (The Wet Bandits)

After playing Harry, Joe Pesci only stayed an actor for nine more years. During those years, he appeared in the Home Alone sequel and two sequels to Lethal Weapon, but perhaps his most well-known role was as the title character in My Cousin Vinny. In 1999, Pesci announced his retirement from acting in order to get out of the spotlight. Since then he has only appeared in a few movies and might be best known as that angry guy in the Snickers commercial. Most recently, Pesci has been connected to yet another Martin Scorsese movie.

Although Daniel Stern continued acting after Home Alone and its sequel, Marv is still the role he’s best known for. He had roles in City Slickers, Bushwhacked, Whip It and The Next Three Days, as well as a guest spot on Monk. He’s had a full life outside of acting by writing and directing TV shows, movies and plays and working as a sculptor. Stern and his wife also received service awards for volunteerism from President Obama. Most recently, he’s appeared in several TV shows, including Workaholics and Manhattan.

Roberts Blossom (Old Man Marley)

Home Alone was one of Roberts Blossom’s last acting roles before his retirement, but before he quit show business, he appeared in Doc Hollywood and The Quick and the Dead and had guest spots on Northern Exposure and Chicago Hope. After acting, Blossom spent time writing poetry until he passed away in 2011 at the age of 87. If you’re interested in learning more about his life, you should check out the documentary Full Blossom: The Life of Poet/Actor Roberts Blossom.

John Heard and Catherine O’Hara (Kevin’s Parents)

After playing Kevin’s father, Peter, in Home Alone and its sequel, John Heard has done a ton of acting with roles in well-known movies like Gladiator, The Pelican Brief and White Chicks. In 2013, he appeared in one of the greatest films of our time, Sharknado. If possible, Heard’s television career is even more illustrious than his movie career. He has had guest spots on almost every crime show imaginable, including several versions of Law & Order and NCIS: Los Angeles. A recurring role on The Sopranos as Detective Vin Makazian earned Heard an Emmy nomination, but if you want to see him in something more recent, try The Lizzie Borden Chronicles.

Like her movie husband, Catherine O’Hara has appeared in a lot of movies and TV shows since Home Alone and its sequel came out. Many of these roles have been kid friendly voiceover work in movies such as The Nightmare Before Christmas, Where the Wild Things Are and Frankenweenie. When not doing voiceover, O’Hara often shows up in comedies like Away We Go and A.C.O.D., which is fitting since she started acting as a sketch comedienne. She had a recurring role on Six Feet Under and was nominated for an Emmy for her work in Temple Grandin. Most recently, she guest starred on Modern Family and can be seen in the upcoming second season of the Canadian comedy Schitt’s Creek.

Devin Ratray (Buzz McCallister)

Buzz was perhaps the best known of Kevin’s siblings because he was the biggest jerk, especially in Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. After playing that role, actor Devin Ratray had sporadic roles throughout the late ‘90s and early ‘00s while he went to film school. But he returned to the acting business in 2009 and has had a slew of roles since then, including guest spots on Supernatural, Elementary and Marvel’s Agent Carter. He also appeared in movies such as Nebraska and R.I.P.D. In 2016, you can catch Ratray in the heist comedy Masterminds.

Since you probably can’t make your family disappear like Kevin’s, make sure you sit down and watch Home Alone with them this holiday season. And if you’re so inclined, you can update them on what all the actors are doing after the movies. That’s the best way to say “Merry Christmas.”

So, what are you waiting for? Find one of the ubiquitous showings of Home Alone and enjoy, ya filthy animals!

Celebrity Crush: Michael Cera

(Image Credit: Sony)

(Image Credit: Sony)

I first saw Superbad when I was 13. I loved it, but as I got older I kept telling myself I’d see a different, more serious movie that would knock my socks off and turn my loving Superbad into a forgotten phase of my youth… I’m 19 now, and it’s still my favorite movie. And I’ve come to realize this is mostly due to the beautiful and wonderfully talented Michael Cera.

For years, I have been unable to admit this. I’ve always told people Leonardo DiCaprio was my favorite actor. There was just something about Superbad and Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist that made me regard them as less legitimate than other movies. Like the ones Leo starred in.

However, while I still like DiCaprio’s work A LOT, I’ve come a long way in my adolescent partialities.

No longer am I afraid to admit that Superbad is my watch-when-I’m-sad movie, or that Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist makes me tingle with warm happiness inside – it’s like drinking hot chocolate.

And if you’ve ever seen either of those films, you know that Michael Cera has a huge effect on the atmosphere created in them. His sense of comedic timing and ability to create such an endearing, albeit awkward, teenaged character is undoubtedly impressive. I’ve realized that he is one of the biggest reasons I love re-watching these movies and showing them to my friends.

So, truly, I think of this article as a proclamation – nay, a confession – of my love for Michael Cera. I’m finally admitting it to the world!

And with my admittance, I’ve come to look more into his work.

Lately, he’s been pursuing different kinds of roles. He’s shying away from his shy, nice-guy “type” and is stretching himself. This can be seen in the movies, Magic Magic and Crystal Fairy & the Magical Cactus, as well as in his portrayal of himself in This is the End.

He has published a hilarious recount of having an 8 month-long text-conversation with a random number to The New Yorker.

He even starred on Broadway in Kenneth Lonergan’s This is Our Youth.  

So, as it turns out, he has many more sides and he wants to show them off. I, for one, am only too excited to watch him as he blossoms into an actor that is a force to reckon with.

At first, he caught my intrigue with his amazing performances in two of my favorite movies. I flirted a little with his earlier works. And now he’s wining and dining me with his recent accomplishments and confidence as he breaks away from his comfort zone. At this point in our relationship, I’m head over heels for him.

Celebrity Crush: Colton Haynes

If you follow me on social media (shameless plug) then you MUST know about my massive crush on the beautiful creature that is Colton Haynes. Honestly, my heart beats just typing his name and I may seem like a crazed fan but WHO CAN DENY HIS BEAUTIFULNESS?

Haynes came on my radar after…I don’t even know, honestly. You’ll probably know him from My Chemical Romance’s music video, Roy Harper on Arrow or Jackson Whittemore on Teen Wolf. OR, you might even know him from his EPIC Halloween costumes:

Let’s just say, he slays at Halloween.

ANYWAY. Behind all that Halloween makeup lies a beautiful man. FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, he can model, act and SING. Yes, SING. Even if you don’t like country music, I recommend you watching this video that just MIGHT change your mind:

 

He’s just as nerdy as us too. Do you remember that time he won the internet when he live-tweeted sitting next to an awkward couple having their first date?

Or, how about that time where he reminded us he’s just like us who needs his beauty rest?

Either way. It’s hard not to love a down-to-earth guy like Colton Haynes. Even his name is beautiful. Let me just hit you with some GIFs that will get you to swoon.

ch03

He even makes looking healthy while seeking revenge seem cool.

ch04

Even annoyed Colton is hard to resist.

ch05

Yep. That’s true.

For everyone who didn’t know about Colton Haynes but now are pretty much in love with him like me… Welcome to the dark side.

Snapchat with Celebs: Who should you be following?

Snapchat with Celebs: Who should you be following?It’s no secret that celebs are all about social media. First, the trendy thing was Twitter. Then, everyone started making Instagram accounts (and thank God for that — what would we do without the knowledge of what Chrissy Teigen eats at every meal?). Now, it seems like everyone who’s anyone has Snapchat. Although it can get a little TMI with certain people, Snapchat is actually a pretty cool way to keep up with your favorite celebrities on a more personal level. Check out these famous accounts if you’re looking for some serious entertainment!

Shay Mitchell (@officialshaym)

Shay is one of my favorite Snapchatters. She’s the type of person that is always doing something, and she seems to always be willing to share her adventures with her fans. As of recent, her snaps have been filled with book signings for her new novel, Bliss, as well as with fun photo shoots and filming of Pretty Little Liars.

Ryan Seacrest (@ryanseacrest)

That’s right, everyone’s favorite host has a Snapchat! Here, you can get a behind-the-scenes look at red carpet events and see footage that you won’t find on any televised coverage.

Justin Bieber (@rickthesizzler)

As we’ve learned from recent events in Bora Bora, the “What Do You Mean?” singer is certainly not camera-shy. The Biebs loves taking pouty selfies and snapping clips of his fans at various concerts.

Calvin Harris (@calvinharris)

I’ll be honest and admit that I’m here mostly for any romantic T-Swift shots (which have yet to appear on my phone screen), but in the meantime, the DJ is quite active on Snapchat nonetheless. He’s a bigger fan of the selfie than you might guess, although he tends to take a more humorous route than Bieber, often poking fun at himself and those around him.

Rihanna (@rihanna)

I love Rihanna’s Snapchat stories. They’re just what you’d expect from her, if a bit more toned-down. Last week, she showed her fans a full day of wine tasting with her mother and friends and gave us a peek inside the primping process before a big event, because who doesn’t want to know what the day in the life of Rihanna is like?

Kylie Jenner (@kylizzlemynizzl)

I think it is safe to say that Kylie is the queen (or shall we say #kingkylie?) of Snapchat. She’s probably the most active out of everyone on this list, and shares a large variety of snaps, as well. On a regular day, you’ll probably see her getting her hair and makeup done, playing with her dogs, videos of her friends, shots of her many expensive cars and famous boyfriend Tyga hanging around her house. In short, Kylie never fails to keep her fans in the know.

Let us know what your favorite Snapchat accounts are below, and be sure to give some of these celebs a follow!

The Top 5 People Dominating Vine

The Top 5 People Dominating VineHow often have you been scrolling Tumblr or Twitter and seen a Vine star that you know you’ve seen more than once? I know I personally find myself scrolling through Vine when I can’t sleep and next time I look up, it’s 2 a.m. For six-second videos, they sure can take up a lot of your attention! Even if you’ve never even opened the Vine app, there is a high chance you’ve seen or heard of these five Vine stars.

  1. Lele Pons

Lele Pons was the first Vine star to surpass a billion loops. The Miami-based star coined the phrase “Do it for the Vine!” which involves ridiculous activities like pieing a police officer or getting in the back of a random truck. Most of her Vines include her trying to get a boyfriend and how difficult it is to be a girl.

  1. Thomas Sanders

Thomas Sanders is known for his clean and family friendly Vines. Besides his Stitch and Stewie impressions, he very rarely alludes to anything pop culture related and is a breathe of fresh air when everyone is doing very similar things. Sanders is famous for his Storytime! Vines which entail him narrating a stranger’s life and them reacting to him.

  1. King Bach

Bach is a Vine star that has probably benefited the most from his popularity on the app. He has made Vines with celebrities like Justin Bieber, Tyga and Kendell and Kylie Jenner. He has also landed roles on TV shows like The Mindy Project and Wild ‘n Out. His Vines usually revolve around unfaithful relationships and jokes with his friends.

  1. The Gabbie Show

Like a lot of Vine stars, Gabbie focuses on relationships and lack thereof. But she is still hilarious and includes her friends and fellow Vine stars Jessi Smiles and Axl James. If thousands of six-second videos of Gabbie isn’t enough for you, she also works for Buzzfeed and has a weekly Youtube show called Just Between Us.

  1. Meechonmars

Honestly, no one on this list makes me laugh as hard as Meech. All his Vines are pretty random. They cover friends, relationships, and parents. All in all, it’s not hard to find a video by Meech that you can relate to and laugh at. Meech definitely falls under the not family friendly category, especially when his friend and fellow Vine star Dope Island is involved.

Like Twitter and Instagram, Vine is the perfect app for self-expression and time wasting. So next time you can’t sleep or need a laugh – download the Vine app! And be sure to subscribe to the top five mentioned here because you can’t go wrong with them as you delve further into the world that is Vine.
