Favorite YouTube Videos of the Week: Feb. 11 - Feb. 15
I watch a lot of YouTube, mainly because television has too many commercials and I find that people on the Internet are just plain hilarious and sometimes even helpful. This week’s videos consist of tutorials, ‘Draw My Life’ stories and some that are just plain pointless.
The first video of the week is by the Pixiwoo sisters, Nic and Sam, from their PixiwooMadness channel. These two are known for their effortless makeup tutorials. However, they don’t seem to be experts when it comes to hair. Every Sunday, the girls have instilled the help of their friend Sara to create ‘Super Hair Sundays’. Since YouTube now shows you ‘Recommended’ videos instead of new ones, this one popped up! It caught my eye because it has to do with blow drying your hair and I can never find a good technique. After you watch this video, you’ll want to run to your bathroom and try it.
I decided to the day after I viewed this to try out the tutorial and couldn’t believe how simple it was to blow dry my crazy curly locks. The only extra step I had to take was to run a flat iron through my hair. Here are the results:
The next Youtuber is sort of connected to the creators of the first one. I don’t mean to start a YouTube chain of relations, but my second favorite video of the week is by Joey Graceffa… who has done multiple collaborations with Jim Chapman… who is the younger brother of the Pixiwoo sisters, Nic and Sam.
These ‘Draw My Life’ videos have really become a sensation on YouTube. I first saw them on Sam Pepper’s channel and now, every YouTuber is doing them. Joey’s story, however, really stood out to me because he comes off as a very happy and energetic twenty-one year-old. However, the depiction of his life is quite the opposite and really shows that you can’t ever judge a book by its cover.
There is a Harry Styles impersonator lurking on YouTube. Though his name is Jon, his channel, Simply Spoons, has many videos of him impersonating Harry and even covering One Direction songs. However, some of his videos prove that he is a massive Larry Stylinson shipper. This video is of Jon and his friend Nikki (he plays Louis) going on a date night.
Another YouTuber who ships Harry and Louis to the point where he made a song about it is Joe Birdsong. This week, he posted this video which was basically a review about the doll version of Mr. Tomlinson. Joe’s videos always have some sort of One Direction reference and I find he just knows how to make them funny and so true at the same time.
Everyone thinks that if you’re in the fashion industry, you’re a snob. T by Alexander Wang, however, totally disproved this by featuring comedienne Anjelah Johnson as the infamous Bon Qui Qui for their 2013 Spring campaign.
Those are this week’s YouTube favorites! Let me know if there are any YouTubers I should check out by leaving a comment in the Ask/Contact link.
I just happened to stumble upon this on Sugar Scape’s Twitter. Watch YouTuber Simply Spoons do a hilarious Harry Styles impression with ‘Louis’ filming. Haylor references and One Direction merchandise included.
Do you believe the rumor that Harry Styles and Taylor Swift are dating? Do you like Taylor Swift?
Absolutely not. I think it’s a total publicity stunt that their management is doing to try and stop the Larry rumors. It gives the public something to believe and think about. And how ironic that this happened right before Louis and Eleanor’s ‘anniversary’…
And yes, I do like Taylor Swift. I think her music is amazing and very empowering at times, actually. But, she also dates A LOT, which I don’t know if she sees. How many boyfriends has she had?
Seventeen interviews the one and only Louis Tomlinson of One Direction. The mention of his girlfriend numerous times throughout the piece is making Directioners even more skeptical that Larry Stylinson (the bromance turned maybe romance of Louis and Harry Styles) is indeed real.
I won’t lie, I ship Louis and Harry and have since the day I first fell in love with One Direction. But, then again, celebrities are just like politicians: they tell people what they want to hear… and they lie a lot.
Tumblr’s new account, Storyboard, will be exploring the world of One Direction fanfiction. While some fans are jumping for joy, others are not. And neither are One Direction themselves…
Can I just point out one thing, though? Louis says that he’s “in a relationship”, which most would assume is his girlfriend Eleanor. But, he goes on to say that he and Harry can’t fool around anymore.
If Louis really is truly in love with Eleanor, then why doesn’t he talk about her more in interviews? Not even just a little bit? He always focuses more on Harry, hence why people question if they’re actually together. As much as I love the boys, I will fully admit that I am one of those people that question their relationship. Louis can hate me all he wants if he ever actually reads this, but since day one of when I first discovered One Direction up until now, Harry and Louis make it out like something really is going on with them. The way they touch each other, the way they look at each other, the fact that Harry will practically do anything Louis tells him to on stage is all questionable. If they want rumors to stop (which they won’t because that’s part of being famous either way) then they need to focus on just doing that.
Months ago, it was reported that Harry Styles had purchased his own apartment. Now, rumor has it his flatmate/bandmate/boyfriend just purchased a new house for himself. Does this mean the best friends are breaking up or just growing up?
It’s not a great time for news like this to come as One Direction fans, including myself, can’t seem to get away from the Larry Stylinson drama that’s been circulating on the internet for the past week after Louis started to diss fans on Twitter for insulting his relationship and his girlfriend, Eleanor Calder. Louis may be sick of the rumors relating to him and Harry, but he’ll just need to learn that rumors, tabloids and false info come with the price of being internationally known.
