Maybe you live underneath a rock or maybe you just have different interests, but if you've been scrolling on YouTube or your Facebook feed, you may or may not have heard of Dr. Sandra Lee. Dr. Lee is a is a certified dermatologist in Southern California. Is the name still not ringing a bell? How about Dr. Pimple Popper?

Dr. Lee, aka Dr. Pimple Popper, has become famous and gained an incredible following of over 2 million people while posting videos of her patients and her skin procedures. Everything from cysts, blackheads, acne; you name it, and Dr. Lee has probably posted a video about it.

Originally started posting for educational purposes, she later found that her popping videos proved rather satisfying for an audience, which she now refers to as her "pop-a-holics". While it might seem like a disgusting past time, Dr. Lee's videos gain millions of views, so clearly I am not the only one with a weird hobby. While it might seem insane that people genuinely enjoy watching her videos, many find it therapeutic, including myself.

Her videos are a sort of satisfying and get you into a trance once you start watching, you can't look away. Watching the pressure of things increase and decrease has been proven to relax people, which is what all of her videos include. Her goals with her patients are to make them feel comfortable while she is operating and give them the self-confidence they need while she is working on their skin. Dr. Lee has become so popular that she is able to sell pimple popping tools and her own skincare line to her fans.

She is also currently starring in her own TV Show "Dr. Pimple Popper" on TLC which documents her procedures and the lives of her patients. She has clearly become more than a doctor, debatably, a celebrity. In fact, people from all over the country fly to her office to get treatment from the one and only. She has created an image for herself in both the medical and entertainment industry. While watching these videos might seem unfathomable to some, the following Sandra Lee has is sure to stay, and her videos are only getting more popular.

So don't be surprised if you happen to stumble upon a pimple popping video on one of your newsfeeds. You can choose to look away or to indulge, either of which is okay.

5 Songs to Add to Your Playlist This Month

Spring into finals week (and the summer) by "cleaning up" your playlist

1049
views

Here are some fun, fresh new tracks to check out as you finish out the rest of the school year and help you get out of your "music comfort zone!"

“Patience” by Tame Impala 

Genre: Electronic/Alternative

Tame Impala FINALLY released new music (!!), and this track is absolutely stunning. With frontrunner Kevin Parker staying on brand with the band's psychedelic, seemingly ethereal style, it sounds like a combination of 70s soft rock and waves of modern-day electronica, with Parker's voice drifting in and out in a kind of otherworldly, mellowed-out manner.

“Harmony Hall” by Vampire Weekend 

Genre: Alternative/Indie Pop

Vampire Weekend is also releasing an album, entitled "Father of the Bride", on May 3rd. From the looks of it, this track relates to the theme of marriage/weddings present in the album's title, and it is a fun, upbeat song that I have been listening to a lot in the morning as I'm getting ready for class! Ezra Koenig's voice is so unique and can cover a broad range, and I highly recommend listening to some of the band's other work as well ("Step" from their 2013 release "Modern Vampires of the City" is one of my all-time favorite songs!).

“Ready to Let Go” by Cage the Elephant 

Genre: Alternative/Alternative Rock

So many great artists are (finally) releasing new albums this year, and Cage the Elephant falls into this category. This track is an absolute banger and doesn't stray much from the band's style in that it includes a lot of loud guitar and dynamic vocals. Like Vampire Weekend, Cage the Elephant has been around since the early 2000s, and I highly recommend checking out some of their earlier work as well (big fan of their most recent album, actually!)

“Apple Orchard” by Beach House 

Genre: Indie/Electronic

Beach House is one of my favorite bands of all time, as I find a kind of an ethereal, beautiful sadness in the dreamy style of instrumentalist Alex Scally and lucid vocals of singer Victoria Legrand. This track is from their 2006 self-titled debut and is probably one of my favorite songs they've ever released. The lyrics are poetic and perfect for the post-finals enjoyment of spring weather, in that they preach relaxation and restfulness, and the song's electronic rhythms echo the essence of spring as well. If you like this song, then I highly recommend checking out the band's other albums as well (Depression Cherry is one of my favorite albums of all time).

“April Come She Will” by Simon & Garfunkel 

Genre: 60s Pop

No spring playlist is complete without a little Simon & Garfunkel! This song is a classic, its timeless, poetic lyrics capturing the epitome of the coming of spring and all its glory. In fact, I consider the entire album (entitled Sound of Silence) to be perfect for the pleasantness and feelings of renewal/natural revitalization associated with the coming months, so be sure to give it a listen if you haven't heard it before!
