Forgot how much this SLAYS.

Straight Outta Oz by Todrick Hall.

Watch it. It’s AMAZING. Incredible visual concept album using the story of the Wizard of Oz to explore his life. Absolutely stunning costuming and cinematography, really smart writing, and beautiful performances. Addresses so many important issues like black media representation, gun violence, the price of fame, leaving home, finding who you are, sexuality etc. 

Also some pretty impressive guest stars including:

  • Wayne Brady
  • Kim Chi
  • William Belli
  • Amber Riley
  • Nicole Scherzinger
  • Chester See & Grace Helbig
  • Jordin Sparks (who sings one of my favorite songs in the whole thing, I legit started crying) 
  • Joseph Gordon-Levitt

It’s an hour long but it is so worth the time.

7 years of Glee:

7 years since we first fell in love with Finn Hudson, and more importantly, Cory Monteith, while singing “Can’t Fight This Feeling” in the showers

7 years since we first grew to admire Rachel Berry - as annoying as she might have been - through her passion and strive for stardom

7 years since we met with the original diva, Mercedes Jones, through the song R-E-S-P-E-C-T and her assuring us that she will forever be Beyonce

7 years since we we saw that adorkable wheelchaired kid Artie Abrams, and knew we wanted him to be a part of our squad

7 years since Kurt Hummel taught us everything this show stands for, that it’s okay to be different because your real friends will accept you

7 years since we heard Blaine Anderson sing Teenage Dream for Kurt, with over-gelled hair and the biggest smile you’ve ever seen

7 years since we instantly fell in love with Trouty Mouth through his rendition of “Billionaire” (the Glee fans still have their theories about the real reason the Kylie Jenner challenge got started)

7 years since Noah Puckerman reminded us that people do change, and no matter how much of a jackass you may have been in high school you can still come out on top

7 years since we met the most complex “prom queen” stereotype of all time, Quinn Fabray, as she taught us to chase your dreams no matter where it leads you, and don’t let your past define you

7 years since we were introduced to resident bad girl Santana Lopez, and we realized that appearances are deceiving - the high school bitch can also be the one with the biggest heart

7 years since Brittany S. Pierce proved that self-esteem is where your intelligence comes from, regardless of what anyone else says

7 years since Tina Cohen-Chang showed that no matter how dim your light appears right now, it can still shine just as bright if you want it to

7 years since Mike Chang taught us to follow our dreams, no matter what anyone else has to say about it

7 years since Sue Sylvester and her evil bitch facade walked into our lives, ruining and saving every bit of it

7 years since Will Schuester taught us to chase our dreams, if it leads to stardom or not

7 years of the show that changed our lives forever.

7 years of the show that gave us new perspective

7 years of the show that taught us about acceptance, love, and dreams

To an outsider, it’s just a show

To us, it’s family

Honestly this new years eve will go down as iconic because Harry,Matt,Kat, Shelby, & Esther all went to Amber Rileys house where shes staying in London and got completely wasted and Daddario was drinking a whole bottle of vodka and someone smacked his butt with a belt while they all played a game where they had to pick a box up using their mouth and they all cheered eachother on like wild people and Harry ripped his pants and Kat did it in heels and then they all decided to do some choreography according to Ambers snapchat and honestly I just feel blessed that these humans know eachother and choose to spend NYE together bc they all genuinely have a good time together (clearly) I’m soft asf for all of them. Happy New Year to all!
