Lips so good I forget my name...

Something that always gets tongues wagging is a pair of big, plump, full, juicy lips. Are they real? Are they fake? Is it lip liner or lip injections? Who cares?  Here's a list I've complied of some of my fave famous puckers, from the 1950s to today.

1. Brigitte Bardot

Everybody's dream girl. Bob Dylan dedicated his first poem to her and John Lennon tried to model his pre-Beatle girlfriends after her. And it's no wonder, just take a look at her perfect French pout.

2. Elvis Presley

For Elvis it wasn't so much the lips than what he did with them. That famous lip curl drove the girls wild, and many try but fail, to imitate it today.

3. Marilyn Monroe

The most famous pair of red lips. Marilyn would use different lipsticks and glosses to get her now iconic red pout. Andy Warhol was even inspired to create a silkscreen painting titled "Marilyn Monroe's Lips."

4. Mick Jagger-Georgia May Jagger

Some people thought Mick's lips were sexy and dangerous, others described them as rubbery (ew).  Either way, Mick's rock and roll pout was the inspiration for the Rolling Stones lips and tongue logo. He went on to pass his lush lip genes to his kids, most notable Georgia May.

5. Steven Tyler- Liv Tyler

Another famous rocker pucker is that of Steven Tyler. Often compared to Jagger's lips, Tyler also  passed on his pillowy pout to daughter Liv.

6. Angelina Jolie

One of the first things people think about when talking about Angelina is her plush pout. Amazing lips on an even more amazing woman.

7. Lindsey Wixson

What makes Lindsey stand out from the rest on the runway is her doll face, gap teeth and rosebud lips.

8. Lana Del Rey

Lana's lips were the first to cause major controversy. There are claims that her perfectly bee stung lips are as fake as her Lana persona. But I think that reinventing yourself and being mysterious is rather appealing. Yeah she's fake but so what? Own that fakeness, at least the music is good.

9. Harry Styles

What kind of list would it be if I don't mention my fave? Many hail Harry as the second coming of Mick Jagger and I agree. From the wavy long locks (which are currently chopped off but I'm saving that for another post!) and amazing fashion sense,  to the electric stage presence and tantalizingly kissable lips. I also had to include this mask Harry designed because I think it fits the theme: "One day i'd like to meet your mouth." Well!

10. Kylie Jenner

Probably the most controversial lips of all. The lips everyone loves and hates.  Kylie went from having not lips to luscious lips overnight. At first she said it was just lip liner but she wasn't fooling anyone and she finally admitted that she had lip injections.

The Muse Behind the Song: Harry Styles

Haven't done one of these posts in a while have I?! Anyroad, seeing as how I love Harry and I love to procrastinate (I have 2 major finals that are due today, but have I started? nope!) I thought it would be good to finally post this. Of course I am aware that Harry does not look like this anymore, but back in 2012, One Direction was about to hit their prime and Harry was only 18 when he got himself tangled up with Taylor Swift.  Here I was trying to convince myself that I'm way too old to even care about any of this. But who am I kidding?  I watched as Harry walked in and out of Taylor's hotel room in New York, saw Taylor go to 1D's major MSG concert and sang and danced with them at the after party (where Louis pushed her out of the way, have I mentioned how much I love Louis?) Suffered threw countless interviews where they'd ask Harry about Taylor and he'd avoid answering the question like the pop star pro he is. I was outraged when Taylor was showing off a paper plane necklace very similar to the one Harry used to wear. I held my breath when pics of Harry at a tattoo place with Taylor at 3 in the morning surfaced. I cringed when I saw that New Years kiss. I seethed in jealousy when Harry took Taylor to Holmes Chapel and gave her 23 cupcakes for her 23rd birthday (rumor has it Taylor ordered the cupcakes herself, and Harry just picked them up for her, lol). And I was finally at peace when I saw a photo of Harry happy in a hut tub filled with rich men & women and Taylor by herself on a boat back home. They had finally broken up! And Taylor had all the inspiration she needed for the album that was to be 1989. The most obvious song about Harry is "Style" but also "Out of the Woods" which references a ski trip Harry and Taylor took together, they had a snowmobile accident and Harry ended up cutting his chin open (foreshadowing much?).   Other songs include: "All You Had to Do Was Stay,""How You Get the Girl," "I Know Places",  and "Wildest Dreams." The line 'he's so tall and handsome as hell' is obvs about Harry.  People also seem think that "I Knew You Were Trouble" from Red was also about Harry, which I doubt but I can totally see where they're coming from. ALSO, the singer Halsey was super in love with Harry (can you blame the girl?) and wrote a parody of IKYWT titled "The Haylor Song"and another love song called "S.O.S." Very cringe but very funny.

"How much nut for nuts is too much nuts for nuts?" The infamous Central Park date. After all the rumors, Harry and Taylor were spotted looking all friendly. Throw in a pic of a girl carrying around baby Lux and you got a 1D girlfriend in the the making.

In and out of hotel rooms in NY and dancing at the MSG concert after party.

Meeting mom and getting tattoos in LA.

Holmes Chapel shenanigans.

New Years. Another funny story, so apparently they spent Christmas with their respective families and they would meet in NY for that New Years kiss. Well Harry almost missed his flight cos he "misplaced" his passport and had to wait for hours at the airport.

Ski trip.

The Break-Up :)

Bonus Haylor song! It was removed from youtube haha.

Hello all, I hope everyone's new year is going great so far. It looks like it's going to be a great music year because on March 25, Zayn releases Mind of Mine, his first solo album!! I'm so excited for the promo and tour that I'll ignore he picked the exact same day he left 1D. So in celebration, here is a shoot Zayn did with the amazing Ellen von Unwerth.

Photoshoot: One Direction by Sven Jacobsen

I never got around to making a post about how great Made in the A.M. is. Or Four for that matter... anyroad, if Midnight Memories was an homage to 70s/80s anthem rock, Four was a tribute to folky rock and roll (Clouds = Band on the Run= AMAZING), then Made in the A.M. is also like the second coming of Beatles/Fleetwood Max/Paul Simon/a 70s musical dream. For example, "Olivia" was actually written in Abbey Road with strings, but no trumpets much to Harry's dismay, and sounds like late Beatles. "I Want to Write You A Song" reminds me of "Two of Us." "Temporary Fix" is like a prequel to my personal Four fave "No Control." "What A Feeling" is Harry's homage to Fleetwood Mac.  Other great sing-alongs: Hey Angel, End of the Day, Never Enough, Love You Goodbye, Wolves, and A.M. Let's not forget heartbreak/romantic ballads: If I Could Fly, Long Way Down, Walking in the Wind (rumor has it Harry wrote this for his grandma). They also released an EP with singles: "Drag Me Down" the perfect song to listen to while getting ready to do anything, "Perfect" a big FU to Taylor Swift, and "Home" the most beautiful song ever?!  Ok, so basically I listed all the songs on the album,  but they are literally all masterpieces and I'm so of proud my boys; here's the photos they did for the album promo.
