5 Videos To Watch This Week!

It is that time of week again y’all! 🙂 Here are five picks to watch this week! 🙂

 

 

History

In this episode of Geographics, the history of The Cecil Hotel is investigated where many tragic incidents have happened over the years. A very interesting episode. I had heard a bit about the horrific history of The Cecil Hotel prior to watching the episode but learned so much more here.

 

 

Fashion

I love 60s fashion. It is one of my favourite decades from fashion history so this video was great.

 

 

In this episode of Out Of The Closet, RuPaul’s Drag Race runner-up Peppermint (highest placed female contestant in Drag Race herstory, you go girl! :-)) shows us some of her amazing fashion. A really interesting watch which looks at both looks from her run on Drag Race and outside of the show.

 

 

Hair

I found this really interesting. I have long hair and often I tie it up in a ponytail but I don’t really think about the history of the various ponytail styles so this was really interesting to get to see how the ponytail has transformed throughout the decades.

 

 

Music

I absolutely love this song by Sara Bareilles. It comes from the musical Waitress. I can relate a lot to the lyrics of this song. And the video is beautifully done too.

The 56th Grammy Awards took place recently and were presented by the very cool LL Cool J and the show was opened by Beyonce unleashing her Sasha Fierce side as she performed with Jay Z singing “Drunk in Love”. One of the highlights. It was amazing. Their such a sweet couple too.

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis won four awards and performed with Mary Lambert Same Love which was the highlight of the show when numerous couples, both gay and straight, got married and Madonna came on to sing a bit of Open Your Heart too and Queen Latifah spoke. I seen one of the lads crying with happiness that got married. The whole thing was so sweet. Congratulations to all the couples who got married.

Another highlight was Pink and Nate Ruess. Pink came down doing acrobatics before dancing with a hot man. Lucky old Pink and then followed that up by singing with the beautiful Nate Reuss. Oh Pink, I’m jealous! Totally jealous! And totally in admiration on every score!
