Behind the Sick Boy: Chainsmokers Reviled

The Chainsmokers; a well-known American DJ and production duo, formed in 2012 but did not experience their breakthrough into fame until 2014. They erupted into the spotlight with their single #Selfie which ended up a top twenty single in several countries. From this point, Chainsmokers were on the roadmap to fame and success in the music industry.

The duo, Alex Pall and Drew Taggart, went on to produce hits such as “Roses”, “Paris”, “Something Just Like This” with Coldplay, “Closer” with Halsey and “Don’t Let Me Down”. This dynamite pair of producers turned into on of the hottest new groups almost overnight. Because of their success in the music industry they began to experience pressure to recreate numerous sons that were a mixture of EDM and Top 40 pop. This would have been an easy task for such a creative duo but they team decided to take their musical creativities to a darker side. Their new release, “Sick Boy” is just the beginning of a new darker chapter of their music career. In a recent interview the Chainsmokers shared that they always try to stay current with the music they are producing. Drew Taggart went on record sharing that even though this is the first release they have had in nine months the duo’s music is still “a reflection of what’s going on in our lives and the world around us”.

The Chainsmokers express their times of frustration with the industry. During the interview with Forbes they shared how they have watched themselves become people that they do not necessarily relate too. They shared how they aspire to convey to their audience what it is like to be a part of their generations. The current single release, “Sick Boy” is greatly inspired by how we as individuals are able to relate to society via social media and how so many things are left up to interpretation by others. It is a song about putting yourself out there on social media in the best most accurate ways. Yet, still expressing how blurred some messages still are to the world.

Coachella and Wengie: Fashion Inspirations for Every Age

When beauty blogger, Wengie, realized she needed to educate herself on various blogging platforms she had no idea it would launch her into internet stardom. Now boasting a massive one million (and counting) followers on her blog, she continues to grow as a blogger and role model to young girls and women everywhere. Giving her take on everything beauty and life, she engages her fans with her insightful and fabulous posts and videos.

One thing that Wengie really focuses on is giving her fans what they want, not just what she wants. This means talking about things that are important to her followers. For younger girls (and boys) she has a channel to offer advice on the challenges they might be facing in life. For beauty fanatics, she loves to give tutorials and insight into the latest trends and styles.

Another great leader in the fashion and beauty world is the massive music event, Coachella. Gracing the state of California every year, the music festival coaxes out celebrities from all over. This year Coachella saw long, luxurious locks and a mixture of fabulously nude makeup trends as well as wild and wacky ones. Nude lips, green lips, face jewels, and natural bronzers were rampant at the 2016 music festival, signaling a start to spring and summer fashion around the country.

If you are trying to stay up to date on the latest hair trends, one to follow is the long, beautiful locks that were seen at Coachella this year. While many celebrities showed up with expensive hair extensions, you can save a buck or two by investing in a good quality boar bristle brush to grow your hair out. These brushes are great for encouraging hair growth because they distribute oil from root to end, providing proper nourishment for your hair. In addition to this, the bristles stimulate the scalp which encourages hair growth.

No matter what look you go with, Coachella and Wengie are both great influences to turn your eyes to this coming season. Long hair and bold lips are everywhere, so don’t forget to invest in a good brush and a great lip color. Cheers to the coming summer!
