If you're 18, love dressing unconventionally for small amounts of time, and are from a suburb of Chicago, you're going to the 3-day Lollapalooza music festival.

If you're 18 with no self-confidence and a Harry Styles throw blanket, you're going to 1Dapalooza.

It all started last November when I impulsively...

The beautiful Pop-Tart may be turning 50 years old, but that doesn't mean it's too old to throw an amazing party. That's exactly what the #CrazyGoodSummer tour is -- a big birthday bash for your favorite packaged pastry.

Los Angeles jammed with Jasmine V, Dallas rocked out to Demi Lovato...

The Fault in the Film

(1) Comments | Posted June 9, 2014 | 10:36 AM

The Fault in Our Stars is a good book. It is quick and slick and smart. It is also deeply moving, and I like it a lot. It's a novel that can be categorized in several different genres: it's sick-lit, it's YA, it's a romance, it's a dark comedy.

Things I Learned From James Franco

(4) Comments | Posted April 18, 2014 | 3:44 PM

I've been thinking about James Franco a lot lately.

Okay, in the wake of his recent controversy, this isn't going to sound great. I was prepared to write this beautiful love letter to James Franco and his quirkiness and his peculiar intelligence. I was so excited to delve...

Everything I Need to Know, I Learned From Female Show Runners

For some reason, people are very sensitive about admitting that being a teenage girl sucks. Really, though, doesn't it? There's endless competition, painful gossip, complicated decisions, and the otherworldly struggle of finding clothes that are: a) flattering, b) on trend and c) cheap, but not cheap-looking. Of course, boys will...

In Defense Of Liam Payne (Sort Of)

(4) Comments | Posted January 19, 2014 | 7:10 PM

Being a One Direction fan is a highly educational experience. From learning about the malaria and poverty crises in Ghana, to becoming impressively fluent in UK lingo, it's difficult not to feel a culturally-enriching impact by following 1D's high-octane career.

Twitter is a great platform for this...

What Really Bothered Me About 'Wolf Of Wall Street'

(2) Comments | Posted January 6, 2014 | 1:35 PM

It's commonplace for teenagers to ponder what their romantic future may hold. Ideally, I'll fall in love, marry, and have two beautiful babies with a guy with Chris Pine's eyes, Josh Hutcherson's jaw, James Franco's intellect and the combined charismatic personas of each One Direction member. Realistically, I'll be eating...

10 Things I Learned From Midnight Memories

(0) Comments | Posted November 25, 2013 | 9:30 AM

Just over a year ago, One Direction released their sophomore album Take Me Home. At the time, I was pretty well-convinced that there was no way 1D could get any more famous or successful than they were at the time -- young, hot, talented and vibrantly personable (they're such HUMANS!),...

My Catching Fire Epiphany

(4) Comments | Posted November 23, 2013 | 10:45 AM

I came to this really important epiphany recently. It was probably only 15 minutes or so into the latest film version of The Hunger Games triology, Catching Fire, that I realized: I care so much more about the heroine in this story than I do about any boy that graces...

Why Rachel Berry Is A Role Model

(3) Comments | Posted October 6, 2013 | 2:08 PM

Eighth grade was a very weird time for me. I had a tragically bad haircut, was really, weirdly into the Jonas Brothers, and was at that phase in braces where you have to wear rubber bands. Needless to say, I was in the height of my awkward stage.

It must've...

Today marks the day millions of teenage girls have been dreading for the past three years: A member of One Direction is engaged to be married. Zayn Malik popped the question to his long-time girlfriend Perrie Edwards, and I feel as if every emotion I've ever felt has been tossed...

In Defense of Justin Bieber

(114) Comments | Posted July 12, 2013 | 12:25 PM

Justin Bieber gets an unfair reputation. In the wake of his majorly outrageous (and, at times, illegal) hijinks, this statement sounds questionable. Unfortunately, it's a statement I haven't given up on since six years ago, when I was defending Justin for his "girly voice." A few years later, I was...

The Great Gatsby Review

(8) Comments | Posted May 30, 2013 | 12:47 PM

I am grossly obsessed with Leonardo DiCaprio. Shortly after seeing Inception, I was hooked. I bought used copies of most of his movies off of Amazon and had a complete Leo marathon. Websites such as Tumblr and Pinterest didn't help my growing obsession. I clipped pictures out of magazines, bookmarked...

My Top 10 Favorite Moments of the Oscars

(3) Comments | Posted February 27, 2013 | 11:56 AM

In my opinion, awards season is the best (and unofficial fifth) season of the year. We're treated to glamour, candid celebrity moments, and some of the greatest films the industry has to offer. At the end of the Oscars, I always get a little upset that it all has to...

Award shows are the "Hunger Games" of the 21st century: there can only be one winner (in each category), competitors are thrust under the spotlight of public scrutiny, and, most importantly, fashion is key if you want to make a big impression. While The "Hunger Games" feature a little more...

10 Things I Learned From 'Take Me Home'

(5) Comments | Posted November 13, 2012 | 9:09 AM

As an avid One Direction fan, I've been waiting for the release of their second studio album, "Take Me Home," for what seems like forever. In reality, it's only been a little over six months since their debut hit, "Up All Night," was released in the good 'ol USA. Since...
