Bollywood movies are the epitome of cinematography to me. Since I could not care less about the plot when watching any movie really, I just tune in for the aesthetics. And watching a Bollywood movie is like watching a three hour long music video = <3334ui2oui43i
Padmavati is an epic period drama about the legendary Rajput queen, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The movie was supposed to be released in December, but due to certain controversies, the release has been postponed to February. And I really cannot wait. Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s movies are so aesthetic omg. You can watch a clip from Padmavati below!
Oh and since there is plenty of time until Padmavati’s release in February, you have the chance to watch Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s other masterpieces before then, namely Ram Leela and Bajirao Mastani. (Omg click those links your life will be so much more fun if you do!!)
Indeed I’ve been a little MIA lately but it’s just because I’ve been busy watching SZA’s SNL performance over and over again. Oh and also writing my bachelor’s thesis. But all will be forgotten once you see these photos of museum visitors matching works of art!!!
Photographer Stefan Draschan has been snapping pictures of museum-goers who just so happened to match their outfits with the museum’s art.
These pictures might seem staged – but in fact Stefan Draschan has spent hours at museums and galleries, waiting around for somebody with a perfect outfit to pass by.

K-pop is the best thing since sliced bread and that’s a fact. My friends might think I’m being ironic when I share my love for Korean music, but I don’t know if you watched BTS perform at the American Music Awards this year? Well. Joke’s on you dear friends. International K-pop appreciation is a now a thing.
Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been anticipating the release of Hyuna’s latest single Lip and Hip. To give you some context, Hyuna debuted as a girl group member at the age of 14, and began her solo career in 2010, at the age of 18. Her first single as a solo artist, Bubble Pop, was a huge success. But the track’s video and performance was deemed “too sexually suggestive” by the Korea Communications Commission (KCC), so promotions of the song were brought to a halt. Since then several songs and choreographies by Hyuna have been banned, such as Change and Very Hot, for being too explicit. And just to be clear. By “too explicit” they are referring to the fact that Hyuna does the split in one of the videos.
In a culture where cigarettes and tattoos are blurred out in music videos, and girls who act cute and innocent become more popular (á la Girls’ Generation) – you would think that Hyuna would be discouraged and opt for a less provocative persona. But no! Hyuna breaks just about every social norm for women in Korean society, and is super unapologetic about it. Not to mention the aesthetics of all her music videos! Watch the video for Lip & Hip below!
There are certain things I treasure in life. Art and its ancient history would be one of those things. Celebrity culture another. As much as I appreciate baroque art, I truly live and breathe for all things millennial.
Let me introduce you to internet sensation Caroline Goldfarb. She admins the viral Instagram account OfficalSeanPenn, and hosts the tv-show This Week Had Me Like. Through these channels she highlights crazy things famous people do. Caroline Goldfarb has built an entire brand on the strange psychology of celebrity.
On top of the aforementioned feats, she also creates collages. And there is nothing not to love about them. Everything from a collage of white people wearing cornrows, to a collage paying homage to the greatness that is Drake’s mother. <3 Caroline Goldfarb’s artistry is in my humble opinion an entertaining commentary on the absurdities of contemporary society, communicated through a very millennial aesthetic. Ugly? Yes. Would I still hang this on my wall? Yes, for sure.
