Remember when there were rumors about Niall dating Amy Green? Well, according to SugarScape, they might have been true… as well as the fact that he just dumped her. And none of us even knew they were actually official.
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.
Cher Lloyd is the next ‘X Factor’ alum to be a part of a Nickelodeon show. If you think about it, there’s like three-degrees of separation here: Cher Lloyd is going to be guest starring on Big Time Rush who had One Direction open for them last year who were also on ‘The X Factor’ with Cher back in 2011.
