Ok…Ok… We’re not freaking out… We’re not freaking out… BUT WTF IS THIS?!!
This photo of Lauren Jauregui playfully kissing her best friend on the lips was posted online hours ago and the internet (especially tumblr) has been losing their shit over it.
We know... we know it’s just a friendly kiss. But let us, particularly me, relish in the moment for a split second. Ahh... Ok, back to the story.
Lauren was in New Orleans for a family's members wedding this past weekend. New Orleans is also the home of her friend, Lucy Vives, who goes to college in the crescent city. According to The Latin Times, Lucy Vives is the daughter of Colombian singer and telenovela star, Carlos Vives. It appears that the second lining and the infamous creole cooking wasn't the only the only thing LJ enjoyed. Glad to see you had a good time in N'awlins! As we say in the Mardi Gras city, "Let the good times roll!"
Even though we are loving this photo, most Harmonizers and L-zers are not! The fans dragged Perez Hilton for supposedly outing the pop star. Perez took to Twitter to ask fans why their "being so extra."
The celebrity blogger sited the kiss a no big deal.
Ok. Enough Facts. Let me fan girl my thoughts.
When I first saw the picture, I was like holy shit! Then I ran into the office (which we treat like home) blasting Katy Perry's I kissed a Girl. My lovely coworkers just smiled as it was normal for me to do that, which it was. Feeling petty, I opened the picture on Sasha's browser so she will see it when she gets back because she's a hardcore Camren shipper.
Thirty minutes later, the office was buzzing with speculation. We’ve had analyzed this picture for hours to find the MANIPSQUAD logo (or someone else) and prove it’s fake/manipulated. I was about to lose my shit and Eric owed me his car! (A bet is a bet).
So if this picture is Fake… Kudos to the editor! Great editing skills! ManipSquad finally has some competition.
If this picture is Real… 🖕Middle fingers up🖕 the troll who leaked it in the first place.
Now that I got that out of way... whew... I fucking loving it that LJ gave zero fucks. Cleary, she doesn't give two shits about it since she never addressed it and I think she's been in the industry long enough to know that privacy is no longer sacred. She had to have known that picture would have gotten out. It was at a wedding for fucks sake! Do you know how many wedding photos were taking by guests. I won't be surprise if I see more. After all it's just a kiss, NBD!
Update 11/14/16 8pm EST
Fans are still going H.A.M on Perez Hilton and #LongLoveLauren is trending. However, Perez suggest he didn't out anyone.
I'm a millennial feminist and a lover of Beyonce.
To say we love this video is an understatement… We FUCKING love this video!
At first, I did not care for the song, but, after the video… OMG! Embarrassingly, I found myself blasting the song throughout the workspace and screaming “That’s My Girl” to my best girl-friend as I held McDonald’s straw in my hand (stolen from CiCi’s cup) glued to a red flag shaped paper (stolen from Mindy’s five year daughter), tissue wrapped around my body for the rugged look ( stolen from the janitorial), while running around singing the lyrics to the song… I was so 5H in that moment that I, inadvertently, I change my little cousin’s ringtone to this song because the song is powerful and she needs a little #girlpower and #girllove like all young teenage girls.
Now for this review… I suppose as a straight 20-year-old male with a libido of a 15 year-old-boy, I am supposed to write about how fucking hot they look and Lauren’s sexy ass dance moves and all that other shit. But I’m not. These girls are so much more than a sex symbol. They are definition of what all girls should be which is comfortable and confident in their own skin and proudly say fuck the fuckboys/fuckgirls. This video and the girls were fearless and badass with a clear message that paid homage to Destiny’s Child with a Mad Max type of vibe. So, what’s not to love? In all, everyone on this project done an amazing job. And if you want to know what the message is about then watch the video or buy the song (and not convert youtube to mp3 lol) :).
If you want a more sexualize review, then See Eric’s piece on that lol which he should be posting soon if he hasn’t already. *No Shade Intended*
Other than that… I’m JC and I’m out.
