It’s my last blog, you guys. It’s the last time I’ll wake up early to head to my darling neighborhood coffee shop (Starbucks) to write pop culture tidbits for our loyal People’s Choice audience (my parents). It’s the last time I’ll try to make sure my blog is perfect so the editors (my PCA colleagues) don’t find any grammer misstakes and really, it’s the last time I get to have this great platform from which to shout my favorite things about Hollywood and beyond.
Over the past year I’ve written about everything from holidays & hurricanes to the election & the Super Bowl. I once even wrote about the first day of Spring (S is for sleeveless t-shirts! P is for parks!) Yes, it was a bit of a stretch, but everyone has a bad blog week here and there.
So, because it’s my last blog, and I won’t have the opportunity to harp on random aspects of entertainment at will anymore, I’ve put together a smorgasbord of my favorite things in pop culture right now, at this very minute. Check it out:
- Rihanna’s Grammy outfits
