The Most Important Thing To Come From The 2016 Grammys


The Most Important Thing To Come From The 2016 Grammys

Every year, one or two memorable moments come out of each award show during this special glitz and glamour time of year, and out of those few, one seems to rise above the rest to stand the test of time.

Or at least, the typical Internet meme life cycle.

This year's Grammy Awards were held on Monday, February 15, and did not disappoint in terms of kicking off this year's memorable moments.

We have Kendrick Lamar's performance that set the bar so insanely high. I doubt we'll see any performance that spectacular until 2021, a tear-jerking tribute to the late David Bowie performed by the beyond measurable talent that is Lady Gaga.

There were also the more "Oh s#*%" moments, like the Grammys thinking; "Huh. Adele, the artist with the highest grossing album of 2015 is singing, let's drop a live microphone on the piano while she performs and just kinda roll it around." Or Rhianna just not showing up.

Yes, all of these were fine and dandy, very typical of a live show. But I think we all know, the younger generation specifically, what the most important moment of this year's Grammys was; and it didn't even happen during the show...

Yes, us "Suite Life of Zack and Cody" fans immediately recognized the resemblance between Taylor Swift and Cole Sprouse's character, Cody Martin's alter-ego, Tyreesha.

Of course, the more internet-savy lot of us know this isn't the first time Taylor and Cole have been compared to each other thanks to the sweet, sweet internet.

God bless the trolls.

Now here's the real question: is this on purpose? I know with the constant sharing and communication that takes place in 2016, it's not hard to brush this off as more than a coincidence, but here's the thing. Taylor isn't shy to responding to internet memes. In fact, I'd say she is one of the most vocal celebrities out there on social media. She's hella active on Instagram, Twitter and especially Tumblr.

Especially Tumblr.

To prove my point, here's a Tumblr post that made the rounds in 2014 featuring a young T-Swizzle:

As a mild Tumblrina back in the day, I remember this post eXPLODING. Everyone knew about the dangers of "snorting marijuana," and "No it's Becky" became colloquial. This was all before Taylor found it...



How many celebrities do you know that will take a meme and put it on their clothing?!

Taylor Swift. Our internet queen. That's who. Not to mention she is known for responding to her fans on Tumblr and stalking her followers (so she can give them Christmas presents).

All of this in mind, I wouldn't be surprised if our "1989" beauty put a little more thought into her red lips and new bangs than we think...all to make out meme-infested hearts swell.

Cheers to you, Tyreesha.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
