Guest Writer- Ke$ha's True Purpose?

Not too long ago, Ke$ha released the video to “Die Young," her first single off her upcoming Warrior album. The song is about what you’d expect: lots of synth, a cloying hook, lyrics about partying and celebrating trash. However, the video features a hodgepodgery of odd shapes and symbols, ranging from roughly a million triangles to pentagrams to animal parts.

As this sort of thing is prone to do, the video forced the YouTube commenters of the world to break out their Illuminati conspiracy theories, because the financial elite and powerful overlords that control our world and it’s fate couldn’t find a better charlatan for their message than a drunken Trans Am owner with a dollar sign in her name--which of course hints to all the Freemason imagery on the dollar bill...it all makes sense now! Check out Mark Dice (“media analyst, political activist, and author”) tear down the specific symbols, from upside-down crosses to the All-Seeing Eye to a hearse labeled “Evil” on the nameplate. To be fair to folks like Dice, the video is quite creepy if you watch it with the sound off.

If you missed the Illuminati breakdown of her video for “Blow”, you’ll see how deep some people go down the John-Nash-rabbit-hole. A rich man gives her a triangle cookie! It’s a symbol of her consuming the Illuminati message! And of course Kesha is not the only target: Lady Gaga is a brainwashed slave. Michael Jackson and Tupac were assassinated by members of the Bildeberg group. Eminem, LIl Wayne, Jay-Z, and Kanye West are forming a cult (a cult with the dopest beats evaaaah).

Conspiracy theories come from a very odd space in the human psyche. It first generates from the instinct to be better than those around you. The conspiracy theorist believes he has the in on a massive, worldwide scam that everyone else is too silly or naive to understand. It also comes from a natural bias of the mind to find patterns even if there are none. 

What intrigues me about Kesha, however, is “Die Young” feeds into the imagery these kooks look for so much it almost seems like satire. Indeed, even Billboard cited the crazy amount of fodder for conspiracy theorists. The Illuminati believers have now popularized the imagery they crave to the point that it’s beginning to appear for the express purpose of gaining their attention which must really drive them crazy.

"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

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it

Appropriate Holiday Gift Ideas for the Single Lady

While some people may see it as a drag, there are plenty of benefits to being single during the holiday season. During this time of the year, there are tons of parties you can attend that you may not have had the opportunity to if you were in a relationship. There’s also not as much stress on you as a single gal during the holidays because you don’t have to shop for your partner and extended family members  or  stress over where to eat Christmas dinner.  Not everyone sees the bright side of being fancy free during the holidays, and, tragically, they aren't afraid to let us single ladies know. Not only are single women subjected to even more harassment and ridicule during the holiday season, they’re also given the most obnoxious gifts by those who can’t comprehend how anyone can be both happy and single. Whether it’s a self-help book (desperately) trying to reinforce how great is to be single or the gift of a year-long subscription to Match.com , single women are presented with
