Are We Mad or Are We Upset?

Kendall Jenner

An opinion piece by Elisha Brown

In case you’ve been living under a rock, let me bring you up to speed: Last week Pepsi released a commercial starring supermodel Kendall Jenner at the center of a protest that appears to satisfy tensions by sharing Pepsi. We’re not stupid, we know they aren’t literally trying to solve the world’s problems with soda. They’re merely trying to appeal to a specific demographic by using current events to sell soda. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s get to the backlash.

Pepsi had good intentions but they get a “C” for effort. They probably need a more diverse team because someone should’ve told them this commercial would be taken seriously and not as lightly as they intended. They’re hinting around some emotionally intense problems. Had they left the cop scene out, this commercial may have been more widely accepted.

Some people are saying that it’s not Kendall Jenner’s fault because she didn’t create the commercial. Pepsi issued an apology to their viewers and Kendall Jenner, but I don’t think it was Kendall who needed that apology. Kendall is twenty-one years old, she is an adult who accepted the role and was paid for it View Post

Bye Bye February

Today is the last day of February. I can’t believe this month is almost over. I’m not even complaining that February went by too fast because this month was amazing besides all those stupid snow storms. My February was memorable I went to my first hockey game and had some amazing box seats too. I also made the decision to go back to school and ‘m proud to say I’m officially a Public Relations student at California Baptist University. I finally made up my mind and I’m attending my dream school too. February was also awesome because I was able to go to the Dermatologist thanks to finally getting my own health insurance (thanks Obamacare) and I was able to finally get a diagnosis for a problem I was having with my skin and since then my skin is doing so much better.February was also amazing because I reconnected with my father so that’s awesome but he’s still annoying as ever. Lastly February was amazing because of al the amazing NEW MUSIC I discovered. Thank You so much February for being such an amazing and blessed month but March I am so ready for you but in the meantime guys I want you to check out my Bye Bye February Playlist. Love you xx♥

Pia Mia-The Gift (EP)

Pia is such a talented up and coming new talent in the industry. I first discovered her from Kylie and Kendall Jenner when they posted a video of her singing for Drake at their family house. I’ve been hooked ever since and you should be too. My favorite song on the EP is “Lost & Found”

I’ve had this song on my iPhone for a while and it came up on shuffle last week and I simply can’t have enough of this track. Apparently Broods is a duo from New Zealand and I happened to download Bridges because it was a featured free song on iTunes on week. I’m happy I downloaded this song and thank God for shuffle lol.

Daniella Mason- All I Want 

I discovered Daniella after Demi Lovato tweeted out her support for Daniella on Twitter. When I listened to the snippet of this song on iTunes  it instantly captivated me and I was literally listening to this song on repeat everyday in my car. I love when music has that effect on you, it makes the listening process that much more intimate. All I Want is definitely one of my favorite songs for the year at the moment.

Ellie Goulding-Beating Heart

Ellie Goulding has grown on me as an artist. When she first bursted out on the American Pop charts I hated her voice but now her voice is just so amazing. Her voice is just so peaceful and I could listen to her all day. I love her new song for Divergent and I’m so happy that she’s apart of this amazing movie soundtrack.


Little Mix-Good Enough

These girls have totally outdone themselves on this album. I would’ve never though in a million years that I would have some of their songs on my music library. I just love listening to the ballads on their new album “Salute” especially Good Enough. Ahh the emotion, the vulnerability, the raw talent is just something I love when listening to music and Little Mix doesn’t disappoint.
