Confession : These past few months I have been trying to wrap my head around the mystery of whether or not Kylie Jenner was pregnant.
I know, how could I waste my time engrossed in something so irrelevant in my own life? Granted, it’s not like I spent all day, every day trying to figure it out (I would like to think I I have more of a life than that) but every so once in a while, I would come across something on my social media feed that would suck me in to this black hole of youtube videos and tmz photos of Kylie Jenner/Kylie Jenner look-a-likes in over-sized hoodies. One picture would lead to another, that would lead to a video, that would lead to another picture, and after 30 minutes of going into this loop, I still was left with the question of is she? or isn’t she?
It’s not like I even like the Kardashians. I know some people like to watch their show as their guilty pleasure, but I can’t. And it’s not just them, I generally don’t really keep up with celebrity news and Hollywood gossip and am usually the one who’s like Wait, who is this person? and how are they famous?
But the mystery of whether or not Kylie Jenner was pregnant sucked me in and it was uncertain whether I would stop caring.
Thankfully, a video was a released a few days ago revealing the truth of the matter, and now I can stop spending my life on trying to figure it out. While I read somewhere that she had shied away from the media because she wanted to keep it private, it has left me wondering if that really was the reason, or if it was some sort of strategic scheme to suck people like me in. I mean, I want to believe the former, but I don’t know. They are, after all, reality stars who monetize on their perceived relevancy in the world.
I won’t pass judgement on her. Maybe she really was just ready to be a mom, which often times is not the case with most girls her age. I just hope that young girls who look up to her won’t start having babies just because Kylie Jenner did. I mean, I’m not a parent, but I feel like there’s so much more to being a one than doing it because a celebrity does.
Anyways, a few things I like this week:
Justin Timberlake Half-Time Performance – Let me start by saying that I don’t really like his new album Man of the Woods. I mean, there are few songs that I think I can grow to like, but I didn’t connect with it as much as the previous albums. A part me of the disappointment is that I half expected it to be a little country (especially since one of the songs he released was with Chris Stapleton), but even as a pop album (or whatever genre you want to label it) I can’t get myself to really like it. Maybe I just need to give it time and have Top 40 radio brainwash me into liking it.
His halftime show was amazing though. I think if you weren’t so much a Eagles/Patriots/Football fan, you watched the superbowl for the half-time show…. and the commercials. A majority of the songs performs were hits from the previous album. A part of me was wishing/hoping NSync would pop out and do “Bye Bye Bye”, but it was still good.
Chris Stapleton/Justin Timberlake “Tennessee Whiskey – So after seeing the video for JTs “Say Something” feat. Chris Stapleton , the video for their 2015 CMA performance came up on my youtube feed. I had seen it before a while ago, but found myself watching it again and it’s made my top-10 songs that I’ve been listening to. There’s something about this song that just digs right into your soul, and with JT in it… when he comes in with that second verse. Oh. em. gee. I just about died. Plus, I like Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey. 🙂
Jordan Peterson “12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos: This guy is a clinical psychologist at the University of Toronto. I first heard about this guy after husband showed me this youtube video of him debate this journalist. Then I started hearing him more and more in podcasts that we listen to like Joe Rogan, Adam Carolla…and while it seems like the left doesnt like him as much, I started reading his book and I think it’s great. Granted, I’m still on the first chapter, but it has definitely made me reflect what I’m doing in my own life and has an interesting outlook on things…like on why you should always have good posture, and clean your room before you start judging others.
Anyways, I hope you all have a great rest of the week!
Until next time….
