Little Mix – Hair
It’s no Black Magic, but we still support it.

I once went through a phase where I ONLY listened to music like this. It felt like such California lifestyle when I was living in Seattle. Maybe it was a sign of the future.
That late night Tuesday jam
This is actually becoming a “thing” for me now. I even decided to follow Taylor’s Instagram account because I’m so curious to know every night who she’s going to bring out! Honestly, when I attended her concert last week, I think my co-workers have never seen me more excited for her to announce who the guest was and it’s weird because if I had to designate myself a percentage for how much of a fan I am, it’s 57%.
So last night, Taylor brought out the STARS! Uzo Aduba joined her as they sang “White Horse” together. Mary J. Blige sang two songs! And then Taylor brought out Sean O’Pry – the actor from her “Blank Space” video and … wait for it – Matt Leblanc and Chris Rock. HOW random is that? Now, I really suggest you watch the video above this because it. is. awkward. I was left with so many questions afterwards that I think I’m now starting to wonder if D-list stars are paying TAYLOR to appear at her shows. Man, she’s so powerful. And this video is so lol.
A deep and dark and mysterious Friday
I think this just made my entire Friday! A 7-year old boy who was diagnosed with autism at age 4 loves Taylor Swift so much that he memorized this piano medley for her of 1989. And it’s actually incredible.
Taylor has since responded to the young boy via Twitter and has invited him to one of her shows!
Just two days before Frank Ocean was set to appear at FYF Fest, he pulls out! His replacement? Kanye West of course. This is actually something that I’ve always wondered about having worked in the music industry, but I’ve never found the answer to. What happens when an artist flakes out on the lineup that they are supposed to be a part of? Does the artist leave the music festival organizers high and dry? Does the flaky artist help the organizers by coming up with a possible alternative for them like my interviewers do when they can’t make an interview? Unlikely. Does the artist get penalized/black listed from said music festival? I have so many questions.
However, the biggest question that I have is – where is Frank Ocean? He promised us that new album in July and we’re almost done with August. Now he’s pulled out of FYF which is making me even more concerned. Is the album not done? Will there even be an album? Honestly, I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time now and I hope that he’ll have a good reason for us when this is over.
Here’s the new FYF Lineup poster. Wow, those organizers worked really quick!
Have you noticed a pattern lately on Yow Yow?! Well we’re obsessed with Little Mix! This came long before I saw them at Taylor Swift and sometime after “Black Magic” was released. Yesterday, I watched a clip of the girls performing their song “The End” in which Perrie broke down at the end in tears. Going through a breakup is never easy. Going through a breakup and having to continue to go to work and be “on” at all times while promoting your new single and album is even more difficult. I think all of the mixers can agree that our hearts go out to the girl. Today, they killed it in their acoustic performance of “Black Magic” though and we hope Perrie is having a better day than yesterday! She certainly still looks phenomenal.
So I’m going to keep posting videos of their performance because that’s how much we love “Black Magic.” Sometimes I’m at work and wonder if I could be the fifth member of Little Mix.
We couldn’t catch the Teen Choice Awards tonight because we just had to watch Bachelors in Paradise, but we’re pretty sure that this was the most adorable performance of the night. I can’t believe I got to see Little Mix perform last night alongside Taylor Swift!
Sometime last year, my co-workers had bought 24 tickets to Taylor Swift. At the time, I was like “Oh, nah I don’t want to go. I hadn’t even listened to 1989 really.” Then the week before the concert was actually happening, a serious wave of FOMO fell over me. I needed a ticket. I wanted to go, but I didn’t want to say anything because I had turned it down so hard before! Luckily, someone pulled out in that final week and a spot had opened up to which I quickly accepted. Even in the time since the album was released, I still hadn’t listened to it that much other than the songs that had gotten radio play, but I was still really excited. I’ve heard such good things about Taylor as a performer and I really wanted to see it for myself!
As a group, we held a “Taylor Tailgate” prior to going into Levi’s Stadium. The demographics around us? Young girls and their parents, as expected! This was still one of the most fun things that I’ve been a part of this summer though :)
