Watch This: What If Lorde’s “Royals” Was About Adulthood?

Lorde Royals Parody
"If this is life, I'm unimpressed."

Lorde’s megahit song, “Royals,” has been stuck in all of our heads for months now. The ode to teenage disillusionment struck a nerve with one audience in particular: disillusioned adults, who are less concerned with seeing a diamond in the flesh and more concerned with, you know, paying for health insurance. Comedian Molly Dworsky put together this hilarious “Royals” parody aimed at adults who are trying to make it in a world where “every song’s, like, written by a kid I probably used to babysit.” [YouTube via Laughing Squid]

Prince William And Duchess Kate Call Each Other Babykins

When I read that Prince William’s private voicemails to Kate Middleton had been read aloud in court as part of the ongoing phone hacking trial, I was mortified, especially because the transcripts included him referring to his future wife as “Babykins.” Oh my gosh, I thought, I can’t think of anything more embarrassing than the world knowing my dorky petnames for my boyfriend. My next thought? I should write a post where I tell the world my dorky petnames for my bofyriend. Alas, this is the life of a blogger. After the jump, I’m sharing some of the weird things my boyfriend and I call each other, and I would be eternally grateful if you’d share some of yours in the comments. Don’t leave Prince William and me hangin’!  Keep reading »

I’m not trying to throw shade, but Pippa Middleton royally needs some help with her beauty game.Why does she have to go around in Forever 21 Couture with a deep orange Travolta tan and a face you can see your reflection in (contrary to rumors that old Pip loves herself a good powder session) while her oh-so-lucky sister the Duchess gets to be the darling of commoners and fashion editors alike? Not fair!

I am not qualified to talk about the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, because I know literally nothing about it except for this very factual article I read on Vice. What can I say? I’m incredibly American in my ignorance. But oh my god, you guys, a royal wore nail art! Okay, so it was Princess Eugenie of York, which isn’t quite the same thing as, say, Duchess Catherine breaking out the Color Club, but still. Eugenie complimented her purple dress with a Union Jack on all 10 of her digits in honor of her grandmother’s, um, anniversary. Of something. It’s a cute idea, but I think it looks poorly executed and frankly, kind of gross. Thoughts?

“[The crowds] were singing and cheering all night long, so the excitement of that, the nervousness of me and everyone singing — I slept for about half an hour. The hardest thing was trying to walk down the stairs with my spurs on, sideways. I had visions of myself and my brother [Prince Harry] colliding and crashing down the stairs.”

Prince William discusses the stressful night before his internationally televised wedding to Kate Middleton in a new TV special called, “Elizabeth: Queen, Wife, Mother.” Apparently the Queen also helped him deal with some guest list drama: “There was very much a subdued moment when I was handed a list with 777 names on it — not one person I knew or Catherine knew. I went to [Queen Elizabeth] and said, ‘Listen, I’ve got this list, not one person I know — what do I do?’ And she went, ‘Get rid of it. Start from your friends and then we’ll add those we need to in due course. It’s your day.’” Awww! [Us Weekly]

As I’ve mentioned about a billion times before, I’m totally obsessed with everything British, so when I saw these candy bars–which combine traditional British pudding flavors, chocolate, and a colorful Union Jack design–I was sold. Crafted in honor of Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee, they’re swirled with fun ingredients like toffee, strawberry, white chocolate, and meringue. Sounds bloody delicious, right? I fancy the whole set. [$4.79 each, Firebox]
