A Collection Part 30

A Softer World

Happy spring readers! We’re long overdue for a Collection post so I thought I would leave you with one before I embark on the rest of my spring break venturing for the week. It’s definitely shorter than usual, but still packed with pretty pictures. I wanted to kick off this collection post with a comic from one of my favorite sites, A Softer World. Together, they are the perfect combination of beautiful photography and witty thoughts.

Enjoy!

Song of the Day

Katharine McPhee – Touch Me

I feel like such a little nerd for saying this, but I have been waiting for this song to be released ever since I heard it on the Smash promos. I don’t watch Smash, but I do find this song to be pretty catch. “Touch Me” was co-penned by Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic) and Bonnie McKee who is notoriously known for writing a handful of Katy Perry’s songs.

The Academy Awards Parties

2012 Grammy Awards

Rihanna wearing custom Giorgio Armani

On anyone else, I might have said that this dress would’ve been too sexy, but it’s a great fit for Rihanna.

Overall Verdict: Actresses dress better than musicians?

Commentary: Grammys 2012

photo cred | Billboard via Getty Images
  • Did anyone see Bruno Mars’ silly tantrum backstage after Adele won for best pop vocalist?
  • Chris Brown. Quit your lip synching or gtfo the stage.
  • I don’t think I could ever get sick of The Foo Fighters.
  • I actually enjoyed Dave Grohl’s speech and appreciate him for voicing his opinion, but  it’s a shame they cut him off…
  • I could’ve sworn I saw a twinkle in Mark Foster’s eye when he was singing The Beach Boys’ “Wouldn’t It Be Nice.” My heart melted because it felt like he was just singing straight to me.
  • John Legend grooving to The Beach Boys was also quite adorable.
  • The Beach Boys are looking and sounding pretty great for their age! It feels like just yesterday I was watching them on that one episode of Full House.
  • Nope Chris Brown, we don’t have to forgive you. The Grammy’s can put you in our faces all they want, but I’m not budging.
  • Even though it wasn’t well received, I loved Taylor Swift’s dress during her performance of “Mean.” Now if I could only find out who the designer was…
  • Neil Patrick Harris is a babe.
  • I am still amazed by Katy Perry every time I hear anything about her and her music. Does anyone remember the poor review I gave her nearly two years ago? She’s grown as an artist definitely, but I’m not taking back anything I said. Her new song has potential for being the new girl anthem of 2012 though.
  • Adele SLAYED w/ her performance!
  • Bon Iver for Best New Artist – YAY! Great speech.
  • Jennifer Hudson’s tribute to Whitney Houston: Flawless
  • Nicki Minaj’s performance is not as family-friendly as I thought it would be. It was downright terrifying.
  • Adele is also the loveliest human being ever.  What a doll! She totally deserved all of her awards tonight.
  • (and none for Lady Gaga – sad day)

*************************************************************************************************

On an important related note, this HelloGiggles post about why people shouldn’t be okay with Chris Brown performing at the Grammy’s is quite insightful. I’ve had a similar opinion for awhile, but usually when I talk about that I make jabs at his performance and the more obvious scandal. This writer, however, has got some pretty solid facts and it is worth reading. And not to start something controversial, but the reason why that HelloGiggles post is mentioned on Yow Yow is so we can avoid things like this. It’s important for all of us to remember that there’s a border between a play on words or a play off pop culture, but this is not one of those times. It’s not cute anymore especially when it involves Chris Brown. Typing things like this out as a tweet is not the same as feeling the same way or wanting to be in that situation. Not being able to tell the difference between these things frightens me and makes me fear for the safety of other young women that have this notion in their head that it is okay to say these things.

Russell Brand has officially filed for divorce from pop singer Katy Perry. Rumors have been swirling about their failed marriage in the last couple of weeks especially when the two did not spend the holidays together and were seen without their wedding rings. The two were married in October of 2010, but Brand filed for divorce today in Los Angeles citing “irreconcilable differences.”

Katy Perry’s Best Look Yet

[pic cred: people]

Pink highlights or honey blonde, this look works for Katy Perry! I love that she has since toned it down in her hair, makeup and outfits at appearances. Less is most definitely more in this case. This lovely bob is such a great look for her that for a second I debated getting the same hair style. What do you guys think? Do you prefer this simple look or her outlandish ways?

American Music Awards 2011

Taylor Swift was the woman of the evening last night taking home three American Music Awards including the coveted Artist of the Year. She wore a Reem Acra gown that was stunning, but why do I feel like I’ve seen her wear this gown three times before? Regardless, I think she’s great and I totally had a fan girl moment last night when she won her awards and appeared on 60 Minutes.

2011 MTV VMA’s Recap

– This isn’t over yet?!

– Who are these Pre-VMA show  hosts? So uncomfortably awkward. Please just bring back Suchin Pak and Tim Kash.

Foster the People and Young the Giant, please gtfo MTV before the network eats you alive and makes you mainstream. Oh wait…

– Oh Gabe Saporta…I’ve still got a crush on you.

Lady Gaga in the opening of the VMA’s. The look on Britney Spears, Adele and Justin Bieber’s face…priceless. Were her antics a little too much tonight?

– Congratulations Beyonce and Jay-Z who are expecting! One blog already think this might be a publicity stunt.

– I love Jay-Z.

Miley, I don’t like your dress.

Katy Perry – Too soon for that Kanye-Swift joke?

Chachi Gonzales, I see you dancing in the Britney Spears tribute! How adorable were those little girls dancing in it?

– I loved Beyonce’s performance!

Favorite performances of the night:

  • Adele
  • Beyonce
  • Jay-Z and Kanye

– Perez Hilton calls Chris Brown out for his completely lip-synched performance. Whatever – everyone was thinking it! [Source]

Jay-Z also did not clap for Chris Brown probably because he’s the one that discovered Rihanna. Way to go Jay – bit also, did anyone even understand that performance?

– For some reason, I wasn’t really feeling Jessie J tonight as the house band.

Katie Holmes presenting video of the year…that’s random.

– The VMA’s didn’t have a host this year, but I think we saw way too much of Lady Gaga or her male counterpart. It almost got to the point of being too obnoxious for me and I think the organization of her presenting the award to Britney Spears was a little weird because her tribute was cut short when they both had to introduce Beyonce. There could have been a commercial break in there because Gaga awkwardly stole Britney’s thunder.
