Watermelon + Mustard = Your New Favorite Snack

Published

on

Yes you read that right. Everyone knows of an unlikely food combination that works. Many interesting food pairs can be seen featured on social media sights such as Snapchats public story, #weirdfoodcombos. The trend of making food combinations that are unlikely has gained serious momentum over the years. Everyone wants to be a part of it including famous singer Lizzo, who recently posted a Tiktok of her trying the new watermelon and mustard trend

Let’s see what the hype is all about!

TikTok user @yayayayummy was the creator of this funky food combo. He drizzled Frenchs yellow mustard over the sweet fruit before taking a bite. The video took the social media platform by storm and eventually made its way to the “Good as Hell” singer, Lizzo, who made her own video about it.

Though the original uses Frenchs yellow mustard, Lizzo used Heinz. She starts the video by saying “Is it bussin or is it disgusting” before proceeding to take a bite of the snack. A look of confusion comes across her face as she states she “doesn’t understand.” The singer takes three more bites but never says her opinion on the combo. Though judging from her face, it doesn’t seem like Lizzo enjoyed.

So we found out for ourselves

Since everyone was invested in this snack, we had to try it. Though at first, we were hesitant to give this a go. After all, it is mustard on a watermelon. Partly excited and partly nervous, we grabbed a miniature watermelon and some French’s mustard from the store and prepared the snack the same way as the original video.

One bite, everyone knows the rules!

The first initial bite is tangy and the mustard flavor is very prominent. However, the taste is quickly replaced by the sweetness of the watermelon. The combination is both juicy and creamy and is definitely a taste that you’ll never forget and is pleasantly surprising!

We can see why people would love this. It may not be for everyone but if your a fan of sweet and sour combos, this is a must try! Overall, we would rate this combination a 6.5. We are looking forward to see what other food trends will be popular this summer!

Will you try the watermelon and mustard trend?

The New It Couple, MGK and Meghan Fox

Published

on

Machine Gun Kelly and Meghan Fox have taken the world’s hearts by storm. Here is everything you need to know about the iconic couple.

Let’s See Some Romance

Prior to Machine Gun Kelly, Meghan was married to Austin Green. After a few weeks of being separated, MGK and Fox began dating and have been together since.

The year-long relationship began when the couple met while filming the indie movie, Midnight in the SwitchGrass. When the movie production ceased due to coronavirus, the two seemed to be hanging out a lot in their own time. However, it wasn’t apparent they were a couple until the two were seen getting takeout together in California by paparazzi. The pictures circulated fast and fans questioned if Meghan was still married to Green. The next day was Fox’s birthday, and many took to social media to wish the star a happy birthday. One of these messages included a paragraph from Green that stated “Eventually butterflies get bored sitting on a flower for too long,” he wrote alongside a photo of a butterfly on a flower. “They start feeling smothered. It’s a great big world and they want to experience it.” Photographs of the two out without their wedding bands began to surface and fans were itching to find out more about the couple.

A few days went by and Austin eventually talked about the split on his podcast. He stated that while meghan was in Puerto Rico filming the movie, she called him and said she “realized when she was out of the country working alone that she felt more like herself and she loved herself better during that experience and she thinks that might be something worth trying for.” Obviously upset by the news, he said he was very respectful during her decision. On the podcast, he also talked about how he knew who MGK was but said they were only friends.

MGK eventually posted a music video for his song “Bloody Valentine” that featured Meghan being his girlfriend. In the video, there were lots of sexy scenes which caused more speculation that the two were dating.

After months of waiting, DailyMail published a photograph of the two kissing and holding hands after a night out at the bar in California. MGK later tweeted lyrics from his music video Bloody Valentine that talked about calling Meghan his girlfriend. The couple was officially public.

Since they have became public, fans have seen the couple kissing at the airport, getting matching manicures, going to dinner, promoting MGk Album ( which has lots of songs about Meghan on it,) on instagram and conducting interviews. On Entertainment Tonight, Meghan stated “ I knew right away that he was what I call a twin flame,Instead of a soul mate, a twin flame is actually where a soul has ascended into a high enough level that it can be split into two different bodies at the same time. So we’re actually two halves of the same soul, I think. And I said that to him almost immediately, because I felt it right away.” On Howard Stern, MGK told the host he “never knew what true love was like until he saw meghan.”

MGK and Fox both have children, and sources say it was very important for them to meet each other’s kids. Meghan has been co-parenting her 4 boys with Austin, while maintaining her new relationship. She has expressed that it can be a struggle, but that they want the kids to be okay. Machine Gun Kelly has been co-parenting since he first had his daughter at age 18.

A source told Entertainment Tonight that “An engagement could be in Megan Fox and MGK’s future and same with having kids together. MGK definitely wants both of those things, but Megan is a little hesitant right now. In the meantime, they are constantly laughing together and always have the best time.”

We are excited to see more from this couple in the future and are happy for the pair!

Billie Eilish British Vogue Cover

Published

on

Billie Eilish has broken the internet with her new British Vogue magazine cover. For the photoshoot, the young adult pop sensation has stepped away from her traditional style choices. Usually seen with her dark black hair, neon green roots and baggy clothes, it was a shock to see the singer rocking bleached blonde hair, a pink corset, and high stockings. Let’s just say, we are Living for it!

Let’s take a look

In the past, Billie has made statements about how she feels more comfortable wearing baggy clothing because she does not want to be sexualized by the media. This was something Hollywood was not use to and thus the obsession over Billie Eilish began. Many young girls praised the star for this approach, saying it made her more relatable. Sexualizing pop stars is nothing new and almost inevtiable. However, Billie Eilish took the stand against mainstream media by reinventing the traditional image of a teen pop star. Her outfits consisted of grungy, oversized wear and quickly trended across the globe. From the beginning, Billie had a mission to show girls everywhere to wear what they feel comfortable in and own it!

Now that Billie is nineteen years old, she has made the decision to venture away from this look. In the June 2021 issue of British Vogue, Eilish poses in a collection of corsets created by Alexander Mcqueen, showing off her curves for the first time. This was a shock to everyone and instantly created an influx of Billie Eilish stories across all major media platforms. Though many supported Billie, some fans stated that they felt betrayed by her style change, indicating that the artist “sold out.” However, true fans were quick to clap back at the haters, making the argument that “she was only a child and now she is 19.” Either way, no one can deny that Eilish is stunning on the cover.

In the Vogue interview, Billie goes into detail about the photoshoot, her new album, and insight on her personal life. Her album, titled “Happier Than Ever” is more of a personal album for the artist. Eilish says she has gone through a transformative experience and feels more like a woman now. By doing this shoot, the artists explains she wants to confront abusers who exploit underage girls and convince everyone to feel comfortable in their own skin. Her new feelings of maturity and adulthood became the majority of the inspiration towards the shoot and album title. In the interview, Eilish talks about how everything done is for oneself and states “It is all about what makes YOU feel good.” Eilish has stayed consistent with putting herself first and wants to inspire others to always do the same. She has maintained control over her identity since she first was seen in the spotlight back in 2016.

We believe Billie looks amazing both ways, as long as the singer feels comfortable! We are excited to see what is up and coming for the artist. “Happier Than Ever” will be on all streaming platforms July 30, 2021.
