I'd never pass up an opportunity to discuss a red carpet event, and the Met Gala is the most renowned one of the year. It is known for highlighting iconic fashion styles, and it is a reflection of our changing culture.

This year, the theme was Heavenly Bodies, and the celebrities were serving some LOOKS. Here are eight fabulous Met Gala moments that had me terribly wishing I could've been there.

1. Shawn Mendes fixing Hailey Baldwin's dress.

As one of the many couples to debut their relationship on the red carpet, Mendes and Baldwin couldn't have looked better together. But I think I truly DIED when Shawn took the time to fix Hailey's dress like a true gentleman. Can you say goals?

2. Nick Jonas using the subway as his form of transportation.

A true Jersey boy at heart. The Met Gala is one of the most prestigious events of the year in the celebrity world, if not the most prestigious, so most celebs take their own limos and cars. But not Mr. Jonas! He rode the subway all the way to the party.

Side note: why and HOW is he still single?

3. Blake Lively. That is all.

One word: QUEEN. Lively is always showing everyone up, but this year, she took it to a new level of stunning that we didn't know existed. She is so beyond perfect in that dress that she should be put on display at the Met as a piece of art herself.

4. Lili Reinhart & Cole Sprouse FINALLY confirming those dating rumors.

YOU DON'T KNOW HOW LONG I WAITED FOR THIS. After a long few months of the pair tagging each other in photos and sneakily going on vacations together, they finally debuted their relationship on the Met Gala red carpet, and they couldn't have looked more in love. #Bughead forever!

5. Kendall Jenner living her best life without a child to worry about.

As the only Kardashian to be childless, Kendall was thriving at the Met Gala. She even posted a photograph the next day that was captioned "heavenly hungover." It's safe to say that she's the crazy, fun aunt in the Kardash family.

6. Gigi Hadid and Selena Gomez hugging it out.

Girls night! Neither of these two brought dates and took the time to pose with each other, proving that you don't need a man to get dressed up and look absolutely fabulous.

7. Travis Scott gazing at Kylie Jenner.

Because of all of the Kardashian drama that goes on, I am so happy to see that this duo is still going strong after the birth of their baby girl. Here's hoping they're in it for the long haul for baby Stormi!

8. Hailee Steinfeld giving us a look we never knew we needed.

Definitely the most under-rated look of the night. Hailee Steinfeld is one of those celebrities you forget about, but she is always showing off an unforgettable look. She turns simple outfits into something truly fabulous.


They say living in the world of a celebrity isn't as glamorous as it seems, but I wouldn't mind getting a personal invite to the Met Gala and having photographers snap pictures of me. Sigh, maybe one day it will happen. Until then, I can't wait to see what looks everyone pulls out for next year's Gala.

I will always love you, Akon.

Something happened today that I never thought in a million years would happen. I opened up a drawer at my parents' house and I found my pink, 4th generation iPod Nano. I had not seen this thing since I graduated from the 8th grade, and the headphones have not left my ears since I pulled it out of that drawer. It's funny to me how music can take you back. You listen to a song and suddenly you're wearing a pair of gauchos, sitting on the bleachers in a gym somewhere, avoiding boys at all cost at your seventh grade dance. So if you were around in 2007 and feel like reminiscing, here is a playlist straight from the iPod of a middle schooler in 2007.

Warcraft 3: Reforged - A legend returns

One of the top 100 games of the century makes a comeback in an epic way.

17 years ago, the legion invaded the realm of Azeroth, forcing the different races of Humans, Orcs, Night elves, and Undead to make the most unlikely of alliances. There were those who fought for the light while the others wished to banish it. Night and day, the furnaces of Lordaeron burnt bright as the loyal dwarves of Khaz Modan hammer away the swords and shields that would aid the fight ahead.

17 years ago, the young orc warchief Thrall foresaw the fate of his people as meteors of green flames crash upon his lands. He saw the upcoming demise of his clanand ordered a mass evacuation towards a new continent where they shall be safe for generations to come. 17 years ago, the night elves felt a corruption within the Tree of Life, causing them to split into opposing factions: one fought in the name of the Goddess, while the other fought in the name of personal hatred. 17 years ago, a legion of undead came upon the shores of Lordaeron, plaguing the land and defiling the life force of the realm. That was the story of Warcraft, one that spanned continents and races only to join them together for a crucial battle of their history.

Warcraft was a monument to an entire gaming generation, ranked 2nd best game of all time by German games magazine "GameStar." Its fate, however, was ultimately sealed as computing technology became better and overshadowed the old giant. Plus, with the rise of gaming consoles and handheld gaming devices, PC gaming lost its appeal slowly, and games like Starcraft or Warcraft eventually faded into oblivion.

But over on the horizon, Blizzard Entertainment came to the rescue. Following the success of their previous release of Starcraft: Remastered, they decided to come forth with their next great project: remastering Warcraft 3.

Using a new and revamped engine built over the foundations of the old one, they have rebuilt the world we once loved. Adding to that are new, high definition voices and sound effects that they recorded just for this old game. For the blurry characters of old, the team decided to upscale and remodel all present units to give them the 2019 high-def treatment they deserved. For the old user interface (UI), the development team settled on one that resembled the "Starcraft: Remastered" interface, offering more room for players to look at the gorgeous 4K character models. Also, to fit the new continuity from World of Warcraft, Blizzard opted to alter the story by a small margin, showing promising changes to the revived game.

However, not everyone was hyped when the game was announced. Many gamers expressed disappointment at Blizzard's move of remastering old games instead of developing new ones. Many, feeling uncomfortable at the company's decision, took to the internet and into forums. Some fans expressed concerns over Blizzard's decision to retcon a game they hold dear Some are unhappy with the graphics not being consistent with characters: unit models look too detailed while buildings look cartoonish.

Despite all this, the general population loved the announcement at Blizzcon. As the game slowly reaches its release date of December 31, 2019, the hype can only go up from here. For those of us who can't hold their excitement, here's a video of the crowd's insane reaction to the announcement:
