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?

CLICK HERE FOR THE COMPLETE LIST OF FAVORITE THINGS

That will do it for this year’s edition of favorite things. Hopefully, you have enjoyed all the gifts that I have given this year. I have always enjoyed being Oprah once a year. Let’s see Oprah top my favorite things. She’s quaking in her compound.

Ask The Pop Project #6: Life Size 2, Demi Lovato, and Britney/Justin sex tape

askthepp-new-sm

I decided to take time out of my busy schedule (I know what you are thinking) to answer some of your questions that were eating away at your souls. Welcome to the latest edition of “Ask the Pop Project.” Let’s get started with some of your questions.


 

Dear Pop Project (Thaaaaatttt’s usssss!),

There’s going to be a Life Size 2 with Tyra. Do you think the movie will be any good?

– Concerned fan

I’m really hoping that the movie will be as good the first one. I would like a gritty reboot where Tyra is in Lindsay’s old toy box in her attic. Tyra comes back to life in order to help her turn her life around. Pretty much take Oprah’s series where she helps LiLo turn her life around, and just switch out Tyra for Oprah. I also want her to smile with her eyes because I feel like everyone, including knock-off Barbie dolls, needs to smile with your eyes. Yes, Tyra plays a knock-off Barbie. I said it


 

Dear Pop Project (Thaaaaatttt’s usssss!),

Why do you think that Disney hates you?

 – Someone who knows the mouse

You see when you post and talk about Disney being a pimp and how they whore their stars out for all the money they are worth, you burn bridges fast. I’m pretty sure I’ll be kicked off of Disney property as soon as I enter it. I’m proud to say that someone on a board that reads “DO NOT LET IN/HIRE,” my face is right next to Demi Lovato’s forever. Fun Fact: Demi Lovato told one of my friends that she smelled good. It’s a small world after all.


Dear Pop Project (Thaaaaatttt’s usssss!),

Did President Trump find out anything about the Britney and Justin sex tape?

– Concerned and curious person

For those that don’t know, I sent the following tweet to President Trump:

screen-shot-2017-02-21-at-9-25-42-pm

I’ve yet to receive a response but I’m taking that he’s still looking, I think he realized how important this is to state of the world. He’s a very “busy” man. When he’s golfing, I believe he’s doing hardcore research on whether the tape is in some holes. I also have people that say his wife and family is also


 

Dear Pop Project (Thaaaaatttt’s usssss!),

What do you like to use: Apple Music or Spotify

– Music lover

 

I’ll be doing an article on this eventually but I really like Apple Music. I have Apple devices and it’s nice to have all my music saved on the cloud. It also lets me add new music to my library without having to spend money to purchase it. I personally like Apple Music just because it makes my life easier and I love anything that makes my life easier.


 

Dear Pop Project (Thaaaaatttt’s usssss!),

Have you felt like a paper bag? Drifting through the wind, trying to start again

– Concerned Katy Perry

No, because I’m a human being. While I get and like the symbolism, it was just too much Katy. You’re song would have still been good without that line.


 

Dear Pop Project (Thaaaaatttt’s usssss!),

Why do you hate me?

– Beyoncé is the true queen

I don’t hate anyone but rather, I have a strong dislike for certain people. I would create a list but that would make it common knowledge. I like to leave people in suspense.

Ask The Pop Project #5

askthepp-new-sm

I decided to take time out of my busy schedule (I know what you are thinking) to answer some of your questions that were eating away at your souls. Welcome to the latest edition of “Ask the Pop Project.” Let’s get started with some of your questions.


 

Dear Pop Project (Thaaaaatttt’s usssss!),

What is Lindsay thinking? Also, I really do think we need to have a Parent’s Trap 2

– Disney Channel

I think that Lindsay Lohan doesn’t full get social media. She wasn’t “there” when it got big. She was too busy hanging out with Mary Jane and Krystal. It’s kind of like culture shock. I noticed that she tends to edit the stuff she post like she regrets it or someone tells her “Lindsay, I like what you are doing there but maybe you should change it.” Also, I think we should get Donald Trump to meet with her and film it. We could turn into a reality television show. I’m thinking “2 redheads and a country” or “The LiLo and the Trump.”


 

Dear Pop Project (Thaaaaatttt’s usssss!),

Why did you give Britney Ever After a horrible review? I feel like it was one-sided

 – Lifetime

Oh Lifetime. Like I said in my review, I give you credit for taking the time to make something. But let’s be real-it was a horrible movie. You’re movie was a one-sided shit show that just made up things and made a mockery of Britney Spears’ life. But the movie might have been better if I was drunk…or high-or not watching it. Overall, you shouldn’t make movies. Literally, please don’t.


Dear Pop Project (Thaaaaatttt’s usssss!),

Did Britney and Justin really have a sex tape?

– Concerned and curious person

I don’t know actually. I tweeted the President and asked him to research it because he can have the Russians hack and find out. This question is of national importance. We need to know in order to cope. Oh, here’s the tweet:

screen-shot-2017-02-21-at-9-25-42-pm

I’ll keep you posted if I find out an answer.


 

Dear Pop Project (Thaaaaatttt’s usssss!),

Favorite music right now? 

– Music lover

I have the music taste of a 12-year-old girl. I’m currently listening to Britney Spears. I was on a Ariana Grande kick for before. It’s not really that interesting. Here’s one of my favorites. It’s dedicated to Lifetime:


 

Dear Pop Project (Thaaaaatttt’s usssss!),

What’s the point of this blog?

– Concerned blogger

Pop Culture is defined as “entirety of ideas, perspectives, attitudes, images, and other phenomena that are within the mainstream of a given culture, especially Western culture of the early to mid 20th century and the emerging global mainstream of the late 20th and early 21st century. The blog covers pop culture and pretty much anything can be tied into pop culture. That’s why it seems like this is a random blog, mainly because it is.


 

Dear Pop Project (Thaaaaatttt’s usssss!),

When are you going to update Britney Spears vs Beyoncé?

– Beyoncé is the true queen

I plan out it soon but it’s just it takes a long ass time. Especially when a dumbass doesn’t save all the original files and has to make them from scratch. It’s not like NSYNC vs BSB and it doesn’t get updated at all. But don’t worry, It will be updated soon.

Ask The Pop Project #4

 

askthepp-new-sm

I decided to take time out of my busy schedule (I know what you are thinking) to answer some of your questions that were eating away at your souls. I’m bring back “Ask the Pop Project.” Let’s get started with some of your questions.


 

Dear Pop Project (Thaaaaatttt’s usssss!),

What’s up with Trump? 

– Concerned Citizen

Great question! There’s nothing wrong with Trump…at least in his and his cabinet’s mind. I fully believe that he thinks that he’s doing nothing wrong. I think he needs to look at what he is signing and actually being president and less on tweeting. This is all that I’m going to go into because I’m trying to not go political…too much.


 

Dear Pop Project (Thaaaaatttt’s usssss!),

What’s a dick bicycle? I hear Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj singing about it. 

 – Concerned Fan

A “Dick Bicycle” is a metaphor. Not sure what it’s a metaphor of, but it is a metaphor for something. I think it’s better that we don’t know what it’s a metaphor for. Just that it’s a metaphor for something.


Dear Pop Project (Thaaaaatttt’s usssss!),

What’s Beyonce going to name the twins

– The BeyHive

Since Holy Trinity is going to be born son, I’ve named her children Serenity and Serendipity. I feel like those goes perfect with Blue Ivy. But I’m totally expecting something like Blue Ivy to be the actual name of her children. And you can bet that I’ll be making comment on like so.


 

Dear Pop Project (Thaaaaatttt’s usssss!),

What’s the point of this post?

– Questioning why I’m reading this

The point of this is that I’m on a 29 day posting streak and something is better than nothing. I’m sorry if this is your first post, but I swear I post better things. On the left side of the screen, there’s a list of popular post. Feel free to read one of those. Backstreet vs NSYNC is my reigning top post since 2013.


 

Dear Pop Project (Thaaaaatttt’s usssss!),

You’re blog is horrible, none of it makes any sense. My question though is Where’s the love?

– Hates you but still loves you

That is a very deep question. The love is hidden right now but it’s still there. I’m very sorry that you think this blog is horrible and it doesn’t make any sense. Pop Culture is the main topic of the block and it’s a very broad topic that covers so much of the world. Feel free to keep reading it and tell your friends 🙂


 

Dear Pop Project (Thaaaaatttt’s usssss!),

What flavor is the green candy hearts?

– Conversation hearts lover

According to the bag that I’m literally eating right now, it’s lemon. I know what you’re thinking and I agree. Why is Lemon green? I don’t know but I’m rather curious. I understand it can’t be yellow due to Banana, which is the best, being yellow but it doesn’t make any sense. I’ll have to get back to you.
