Top 10 Hottest Unknowns of 2011: #3 Rick Genest



This might come as a surprise, and it is even a surprise here, that this guy takes the number 3 spot ahead of the 2011 Miss Trinidad and Tobago.

He goes by many names: Rico the Zombie / Zombie Boy /Just "Rico" /and of course Rick Genest.

In 2011, he launched his way into the world of fashion and art after working with director, Nicola Formichetti. The Canadian, Rick Genest, strolled into Music Video Acting alongside Lady Gaga, and his thoroughly tattooed image spread around the world.

Rick Genest holds a special place on this list. For starters, it's safe to say that he is the only male; however, there is something else that puts him over the edge than many of the other hot rising stars.

Yes, it is that obvious; it's the tattoos.



Rick Genest is an example of how the overwhelming need to fear tattoos is not that necessary. Tattoos are an art form, and they are also a form of personal expression. When you see workers in restaurants and stores with cover up, bandages, or even sometimes napkins taped over their tattoos, do you ever wonder why there is such a phobia or dislike of this type of body art?

Many people even rule out facial tattoos altogether, for they feel it will limit their prospects in life.

Rick Genest is a prime example of how the art form of tattooing is just that...an art form. He is also an example of how people with full body and facial tattoos can excel in the world and are not subject to "limited prospects."

Maybe the tides will soon turn.

He even has his face on a longboard #Respect.


QATFYG:
Would you ever have a facial tattoo?

(I bet some people read every word of that question except "tattoo.")

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
