Pop Project Favorite Things 2018

Get ready to eat your motherfucking heart out again, Oprah

It’s that time of year! It’s time for the yearly tradition of making Oprah hide away in fear and jealousy. It’s also the event that you secretly live for. It’s okay, you don’t need to say anything more. I got you, boo! Welcome to “The Pop Project: with Steven Kaufman” FFFFFAAAAVVVOOORRRIITTTEEE TTTTHHHHIIINNNGGGGSS! Like every year, please read that in your best Oprah voice. It will make my year. 2018 was a suck year, but these things didn’t.

So without further ado, let’s dive into what exactly our favorite things are. Like last year, I’m a broke ass bitch so I unable to give these out for free. A master link will be provided if you would like to get some of these things…minus for people. I can’t sell people. That’s illegal.

Ariana Grande

Besides the fact that Billboard named her Woman of the Year for 2018, she has been the gift that keeps on giving. While I’ll forgive her for the lapse in judgment that she had when she decided to let Pharrell touch “Sweetener,” she has been killing it this year. Between “No Tears Left to Cry,” “God is A Woman,” “Breathin’,” and “Thank U, Next,” her music has been everything and everywhere. Have you seen the video for “Thank U, Next?” It’s literally iconic. Plus, she’s still the iconic queen on Twitter next to Chrissy Teigen. Ariana Grande is just the gift that keeps on giving. She’s woke and I’m here for it. She has had a very rough year and yet she still’s able to be positive and just be a queen. 

Besides her discography, you all will be walking away with Ariana Grande wigs, oversized sweatshirts, signed lithos, lollipops, and Pete Davidson. He needs a good home. And if you look under your chair, there’s a Mr. Purple for you. And no, it’s not a sex toy. Oprah didn’t give those out so why would I?

2018 was one of the gayest year

I’m here for how gay 2018 was. While it was a bad year, there was so much positive LGBTQ happens in the media that it made me smile. We had more and more people standing up to protect rights, more prominent roles in film and TV, as well stereotypes are going more and more away. While I wish more people would just let people love who they want, there’s just so much support shown in the world that it just couldn’t help but make you smile. Am I wanting to think positively about this? fuck yeah! But it’s also true. If we keep supporting and accepting each other as we have been, then we can change the world. Who doesn’t love changing the world?

Everyone in the studio audience will be walking away with a bottle of love and glitter. I don’t know what else to give besides just love and glitter. I’ll give you a rainbow heart cookie.

Big Dick Energy…or BDE

This sums up BDE

This was brought to us by the one and only Ariana Grande. If you have been living under a rock, Big Dick Energy, or BDE,  is something that was born and raised to iconic status in 2018. According to the only dictionary that matters, Urban Dictionary is “that confidence you got knowing you got an enormous penis, but BDE isn’t exclusive to the well-endowed.”

In 2018, this is what people are finding attractive now. I’m all for this because frankly, we need more of this confidence in the world. Now, I’m not saying this because there’s a fine line where confidence isn’t being cocky….pun intended. You want to be confident without being cocky. Cocky isn’t attractive what so ever unless you have a complex and are into bad boys/girls. And let’s be real for a moment: Who isn’t into them? While you might not want to date them, you have a soft spot for them that you would like to fix by them? 

You’ll be walking out with a book “So you want that Big Dick Energy?” and the first batch of my “BDE” fragrance. It’s so you can smell like you have a big dick even if you don’t.  Everyone deserves to smell like they are packing heat.

Drag Queens

If you don’t get it, google it

Like stated above, 2018 was extremely gay. Leading 2018 into the light was drag queens. If you don’t love or never experienced a drag show, then you need to get with it. Those are usually the highlight of anyone’s night. Drag shows are all about being who you are and having fun. Drag Queens are just the ambassadors of fun and rainbows. It’s been a good year for drag queens. We really need to have drag queens run the country. Think about how much fun and exciting everything will be?

Everyone will be going home with their own drag queen as we have dolls that you can turn into a queen. Let’s be real: Ken is already a queen. He’s been tucking it in for years. You will also get a makeup kit from Jeffree Star as well as glitter. 

Charlie Puth

Does he have your attention now?

Honestly, this was the year for Daddy Puth. I call him Daddy Puth because he’s pretty much a musical daddy. Anyways, after teasing us with “Attention” for the last year and a half, he gave us his album “Voicenotes” and boy, he delivered with that album. He also decided to take his shirt off during this concerts now. I’m not sure if you have seen him lately, but he definitely earned his title of daddy Puth. The boy has been hitting the gym and hitting it hard. Most people don’t realize that he’s actually ripped. I think that it’s because he wears comfortable clothes. He’s wearing the abs version of a Wonderbra.

Everyone will be going away with a signed shirtless photograph of him, as well as all his albums. If you look under your seat, there’s nothing because I couldn’t find anything to stick there. Oh, and you will all get a private concert from Daddy Puth.

Shawn Mendes

Shawn Mendes has really had a helluva year. He released his album “Shawn Mendes” and has been much been everywhere this year. He was on my list back in 2016 and he has returned back. Dude has been slaying it and I’m all for it. Between him talking about anxiety to him calling out Rolling stones. He’s just been a boss this year and I love it. He has also gotten out of his shell a lot. While he still seems comes across too serious, he seems more fun. I’ve always said that Charlie was the fun goofy one and Shawn was the one who will tell you honestly about your life as he drives your drunken ass home. He’s responsible. 

Everyone will be leaving with a signed copy of his latest album. You will also get a VR experience where you are the hands in his video for his song “Nervous.” Still the dirtiest and hottest video he has done. More people have never wanted to be a set of hands more than in that video. I’m feeling generous so I’ll give you a sign copies of his shirtless spread since everyone loved it back in 2016. It’s what Oprah would do.

Britney Spears

When you can get a parade thrown for you just to walk out and not say a word, it’s a fabulous year. Get it, Britney. Everyone gets a parade and a bottle of her unisex scent.

Take it all in

Amount of fucks given

I love how fucks are given in this picture

I’m not sure if you were aware but there were so many fucks given that even Oprah would have included it in her list. The world was so woke that everyone in their mothers was out protesting for what they believe in. We, as a country, need to be more active with our voices when we don’t agree with something that our government is doing or not doing. We have that freedom and it’s damn time that we use it. 

So instead of making jokes about some sort of gifts that I was going to give out. I’m going to give out fuck you. I made a list and I checked it twice. I’m going to just tell you a big “fuck you” if deserve one. If you make this list you probably do. 

And the fuck you go to…

  • Fuck you to the people that still believe they live in the 1930s
  • Fuck you to all the people that believe that transgender people aren’t people and don’t deserve rights
  • Fuck you to all the ignorant people who still judge people by sexuality, race, religion, etc. 
  • Fuck you, Shay Van Buren
  • Fuck you, Rachel Tice
  • Fuck you people that don’t want to help people from other countries
  • Fuck you bigots
  • Fuck you to everyone that feel right about using children to justify their casual homophobia, racism, and/or being horrible people
  • Fuck you to anyone that feels good about making others feel horrible about themselves to feel better. I hope it was worth making someone feel like absolute shit.
  • Fuck you to everyone you thinks you are better than others. We are all the same. 
  • Fuck you to the parents that secretly or openly disapprove or hate the fact that their child/children are LGBTQ. Who cares who they fall in love with or identify as? Just as long as they are happy should be all that matters. And fuck you if you have kicked them out because of it. You are a horrible parent and person
  • Last but not least, fuck you to everyone who doesn’t want to talk about how to stop people from fucking shooting other people every day. I’m frankly tired of hearing about it so let’s fix that in 2019. K?

Pop Project’s Favorite things 2017

favorite-things17-sm

Oprah, eat your motherfucking heart out.

It’s time once again for the annual event that you secretly don’t even know you live for. I hope you are holding onto your weave because I’m going to be snatching your edges. Welcome to “The Pop Project: with Steven Kaufman” FFFFFFAAAAVVVVOOOORRRIITTTEEE THINNNNNGGSSSSSS! Please make sure you read favorite things like Oprah does. I hope you are sitting down because this will be epic.

Click here for last year’s Favorite Things

Now, let’s talk about my favorite things this year. Oh, and the links to get items aren’t free. I’m not really Oprah as much as I want to be. I’m a broke ass bitch.

Riverdale and dem Abs

eff5d4b9dac42dfd0288390d68e0b72d

Dem abs running

I’m slightly addicted to “Riverdale” and I’m not in any way close to seeking help for my addiction. This show is pretty much everything that I have ever wanted in a television. It’s addictive, dark, and gritty. Also, everyone on that show is like super attractive. Between the cast and how the show is shot, it’s just appealing to the eyes. But we all know the real reasons we just can’t stop watching “Riverdale.” It’s because of the real stars Dem Abs on Archie Andrews and Cheryl Blossom.

Dem Abs were the main focal point of the first season. They were flaunted in front of us because they are GLORIOUS. It so sad that they aren’t featured more in this season. They deserve an Emmy. Cheryl Blossom is also my queen. Her lines are the best out of everyone in the entire show. Veronica is the only one close to her crown. But Cheryl is the star of the show and who everyone wants to see. Can we just have a Cheryl Blossom spin-off?

Everyone will be going home with a copy of GQ Austraila’s photoshoot of KJ Apa, which I broke down for you here, Cheryl Blossom’s cookbook called “A hint of Maple Syrup and Destruction: how to proper ruin people lives,” and binoculars so you can be like Betty Cooper and see Dem Abs in all their glory. Oh, and if here a link if you want to buy the first season on DVD.

Taylor Swift’s Reputation

Can we have a moment to talk about how good this album is? I know everyone was worried about it due to it being nothing like she has done in the past. But it was actually rather lit. The best part of the entire album? Hearing Taylor Swift singing/saying shit. It was everything. If I had remembered to write a review about, I would have given it a 4 out of 5. “Reputation” is life. While it’s not as good as “Speak Now” or “1989,” it is something that will make you go damn. The old Taylor is dead and no one is in mourning the loss…..as much as they would if it would have sucked.

If you look under your chair, you will find a bunch of snakes serving you tea. You will also walk away with life-size birdcage because we’re kinky like that. But if you are looking for your own copy of “Reputation” then click here to purchase it.

Poppy

esteemedimmaterialhorsechestnutleafminer

If Poppy isn’t happiness, then why is she so fabulous?

Probably the creepiest yet interesting thing to come in 2017 is the rise of Poppy. Just something about this YouTube star and singer makes you addicted to her. It might be the fact that no one knows if this is all an act or is this a real person that acts like a robot? Either way, I’m living for her strange yet comforting videos. You just want to know more about her. Everyone wants to be Poppy. She’s our favorite internet girl. While her older music is everything, her music is still something that will make you just want to break out into song with her.

Everyone will be leaving with a potted plant to call a friend as well as doge to love and to pet. Click here to buy Poppy’s album “Poppy. Computer.” The album itself is something magical.

Descendantsd2-promo

With this inclusion onto my favorite things, you would never guess that I’m 26. Yes, the
Disney Channel Original Movies “Descendants” and “Descendants 2” are actually the best DCOMs to come out since the days of High School Musical. If you haven’t read my review of the newest movie, click here. The franchise is just so freaking catchy. And the music isn’t what you would normally hear in musicals. While Disney has always and been the best when it comes to their musical endeavors, “Descendants” raises the bar and make it

Everyone will get round-trip tickets to Auradon and a personal tour of Auradon prep. If you are lucky, maybe you can play with a lizard of a former evil villain. If you looking to get your hands on the newest movie, here’s the link for it so you can buy it.

Dragging on social media

This was the year where we brought back tar and feathering. Instead of getting in trouble with the law because it’s illegal to actually tar and feathering someone, we just did it on Twitter. If you did something wrong and you’re famous, the internet would get woke and start a #insertyournameoverparty. That wasn’t the kind of party where you dance and have fun but rather you got dragged. You were dragged hard and fast by your edges. There wasn’t any sort of redemption.

Because of the dragging, there will be cream underneath your chair to help with the rash. I don’t have any sort of link from Amazon for cream because why would get that from there? If you need cream, then just go out and get it.

This will do it for this year’s edition of my Favorite things. Here’s a link to all my Favorite Things in one spot, including some things that aren’t. Its my Amazon influencer page. Oh, and if you are waiting for me to give you a car, then here’s a gif of Oprah giving them out because again, I’m a broke ass bitch.

Pop Project’s Favorite Things 2016

favorite-things-sm

It’s time for the holiday tradition that has Oprah looking at me like “WTF?” Look out Oprah, you’re list doesn’t have anything on mine. It’s time for the list that keeps on giving and for you to take look underneath whatever you are standing/sitting on because it’s time for POP PPRRRRROJECT FAAAVVORITE THHHINNNNGGGGSS!!! Make sure you read that in a Oprah style of yelling. This should be you now:

 photo oprah6-1.gif

So this list is some of the things that I love this year. It’s kind of look back at the year that was 2016.  So here are my favorite things of 2016. Buckle up, Oprah and Gayle, I’m about to take you to school:

ABS

2016 was the year of abs and everyone loved it. 2 pack, 6 pack, 8 pack, or 12 pack. There were abs everywhere you turned. Abs on guys, abs on girls, abs on animals, abs on trees, abs everywhere. It was like an ab heaven.  It was GLORIOUS! If you didn’t have abs then you wanted them. Let’s be real-having abs are like very sexy. People literally throw their underwear at abs. They brought all the people to the yard. Abs are a status that you work out and you can have water fall on them and make a waterfall. Who doesn’t a nice waterfall?

I could go on and on about how wonderful they are to look at and who has the single best abs to stare at. But we have a lot of other things to discuss and go over on this list. But abs were definitely out in full force this year and it was magically delicious for the eyes. I know, get the hose out because there is one of this to come. So yes, there are a pair of abs there for you. It’s a two pack of men’s abs and women’s abs because I don’t judge. Also copies of “Magic Mike” and “Magic Mike XL” will be available if you already have a pair of abs.

 

Adorable animals

There were so many adorable animals posted on the internet this year that it was only fitting that we including them in the list
because they are so cute. You could be having a bad day and then you see one of those adorable animals and the next thing you know you are saying “aww” because they are sweet and cute. You just want to get your hands on one. They are wonderful stress reliever and are good for soul because adorable animals just make everyone feel better. And they just look into your soul with their adorable eyes.

Under you, is a bucketful of adorable animals, some of which are adorable and deadly. If there isn’t an animals under you, then you better run quickly because they escaped and you only have a limit amount of time because the deadly ones strike. But hey, we’re stupid enough to touch it because if they are cute enough, it would harm/kill me!

 

Nostalgia city

This year was the year of nostalgia where all of our childhood memories continued on in an excess amount of reboots because 2016 was the year people milked everything for that green dough. We had the Fuller House reboot, Gilmore Girls 4 part series, Legends of the Hidden Temple movie, and so many more. It’s like someone when through our diary and decided to make all of our dreams come true no matter how much of a bad idea it is. Let’s be real-some of the reboots are stupid and never needed to happen.

For reading this article today, I got you a copy of the unreleased prequel to Mariah Carey’s “hit” movie “Glitter.” It’s called “Showgirls.” You can thank me all later.

 

Zayn

Can I just say that once ZAYN left One Direction, he got more likable? This year has been his year and let me tell you-he has a dirty side that makes Xtina want to take a bath. His song “PILLOWTALK” was extremely catchy like the STD the people got when they had one night stands to it. His album was lit and strange all at the same time. The most disturbing part of the album was how the tracklist was listed for each song. It WaS lITTErAlLy Likke THIS aNd mADe me WONder If THiS wAS COdE. Who has their trackless spelt like that? A Visionary that’s who.

Everyone in the “studio” audience will receive a copy of “Mind of Mine” as well a Pillow Pet version of ZAYN. Enjoy the album as you cuddle up with a tattooed pillow pet.

 

Celebrities on Social Media

Celebrities on social media were too much this year. They had no chill like at all. Their favorite thing to do this year was to go on what I call temper tantrum. They would get all pissy and then tweet/insta/post a status about how they are “done” with social media. Then five minutes later, they would be back on there like it never happened. I get that we have short attention spans these days but we aren’t freaking dumb. Just grow a pair and move on with whatever shiz is going on social media. Move on and get over it.

Under everyone is a signed copy of infamous celebrities tweets. It’s a brand new book published by yours truly. You’re welcome for the table book full of profanity and accidentally nude tweets. It’s fun for the all ages.

Hairspray Live!

This was everything and it was amazing. Sure, it had its problems but it was literally everything that we all wanted from it. From
the soundtrack to the actually performance. From Ariana Grande and Jennifer Hudson’s duet, to

Everyone is going home with a copy of “Hairspray 2: King Cobra.” It’s the sequel movie about Link Larkin, played by Garrett Clayton, getting his big break…..in the gay porn industry. Watch him go from the Corny Collins show to starring in movies such as “You Can’t Stop the Meat,” “Good Morning, Balty Whore,” “Big, Blonde, and Beautiful,” and the classic “Legend of Mr. Balty Whore’s Crabs.”

 

Shawn Mendes

This was this dudes year. Shawn Mendes was everywhere this year. He literally played all the talk shows and even did SNL. He even managed to become the Nick Jonas of 2016 with all the pictures of his abs that made worried parents/significant others have to hose down their children/partners because they all were thirsty af. And yes, he is of legal age in the United States.

Everyone is going home with a copy of Shawn Mendes’ newest album, as well as a signed picture of his abs for all the fangirls and fanguys that freaked out over his latest magazine spread.  You’re welcome.

 

Britney Spears

It’s Britney, bitch. I don’t need to say why she’s on here. It’s unhealthy for her not to be. Everyone will go home with a copy of her new album, as well as a yellow umbrella.

 

 

These are our Favorite things in 2016. I hope you enjoy all the gifts that I gave you. You are welcome. And Oprah, call me next year and I’ll help you do your list next year.
