2017 FearlessRiOT Crush List: The Final Year [Part Six]
#41) Maria Brink
Metal band In This Moment released only
one single and music video for 2016. It was called “The Fighter”, and it’s
somber, slower, piano-driven tone was accompanied by the visual of lead
vocalist Maria Brink, red lipstick searing from the corner of her lips to her
chin, singing to the camera with occasional hair flip. Not only was it a direct
reminder of Brink’s beauty, but also how raw she, a performer usually known for
flamboyant get-ups, can get when performing a song. An omen for her band’s
upcoming 6th album?
#42) Ashley Graham
We live in a time where plus-sized women
are encouraged to embrace their curves, as they should. One of the biggest advocates
and most vocal role models for this body-positive way of thinking is Ashley
Graham, who is representing for her fellow women of fuller figure by posing in
the pages of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue for a second year in a row,
and nabbing a host of other modeling gigs and red carpet appearances along the
way. And of course, she looks extremely glamorous every single time.
#43) Cherry Bomb/Allie
Here is a pro wrestler who is either
extremely sympathetic or extremely obnoxious depending on what promotion you’re
watching. If you watch Impact Wrestling, you’ll recognize her as the Canadian
cutie as the adorable, innocent self-proclaimed bunny Allie who deserves nothing
but love. If you follow the indys, you’re more familiar with her cocky,
entitled, loud-mouthed persona. No matter which version of her you’re familiar
with, you’re witnessing one of the best wrestlers in the game doing what she
#44) Taraji P. Henson
Taraji P. Henson has been at this for a
long time, nabbing wins or nominations at the Oscars, the Golden Globes, the
Emmys, and even the MTV Movie Awards. The charismatic actress currently stands
today as one of the most visible black performers in all of television and
cinema. She’s the reason Cookie Lyon is one of TV’s most captivating characters
and one of the (frankly many) reasons why Hidden
Figures was such a must-watch, highly-anticipated beacon of empowerment
upon its release.
#45) Alexandra Daddario
As soon as it was announced that
Alexandra Daddario would be joining Dwayne Johnson in the upcoming Baywatch
film, I had two reactions: 1) between this and San Andreas, I wonder how many more movies Alexandra Daddario and
The Rock will be starring in together, and 2) she is likely going to be hotter
than Pamela Anderson ever was in this. Those hypnotic blues eyes alone would be
reason enough to watch, but moreso, there is the slight possibility her
performance in it could be a highlight.
#46) Billie Kay
Tied at the hip with Peyton Royce as
one-half of the self-proclaimed “Iconic Duo”, the former indy wrestling star is
pretty much one of the top villains in the NXT Women’s Division now, which
would seem unthinkable looking at her past life as the extremely likable Jessie
McKay. She and Royce take the mean girl template of The Beautiful People and
LayCool and make it their own by way of obnoxiously precious group bouncing and
savage trash talk. Billie makes the list over Peyton due to my longtime fandom
#47) Skyler Samuels
The former Chloe King hasn’t been up to
much on screen over the past year. After completing her run on the glorious
first season of FOX’s Scream Queens,
she opted to finish getting an education in Marketing and Intellectual Property
at Stanford University. Having graduated in June 2016, it would be nice to see
her back in front of the camera in the future. She co-starred with Jennette
McCurdy in a recent short film titled The
Last Virgin in L.A., but an actress of her skill and intellect is capable
of even more.
#48) Ariana Grande
It’s really easy to call Ariana Grande’s
claim of being a “dangerous woman” into question when you remember her
admittedly entertaining Nickelodeon past. But once you get past that, it’s
certainly hard to deny other adjectives that could more accurately describe the
23-year old. Adjectives like: “gorgeous”, “youthful”, “talented”, and “frank”.
All of these attributes add up to make the “Side to Side” singer easily one of
the biggest pop stars of the modern era, and that may be the case for years to come.
#49) Danielle Brooks
One of the best parts of Orange is the New Black, she is an
actress who has curves for days, and is super proud of it. More and more, people
are finding out that bigger is also beautiful, and one of the most beautiful
women of a larger size in show business today is Danielle Brooks, the actress
behind the entertaining Tasha “Taystee” Jefferson. And she totally
owns it, proclaiming in black-and-white ads for Lane Bryant’s #ThisBody that
every square inch of her is gorgeous and she’s certainly not wrong.
#50) Lindsey Morgan
So, Raven Reyes still doesn’t receive
the love she deserves. In fact, of every character who has yet to be killed off
(as of this writing, anyway) on The 100,
she’s one of the few who still has a notable shred of humanity left in her. And
how is she rewarded? With not as many main storylines as she used to have. Even
still, Lindsey Morgan’s performance of the character is still a valid reason to
tune in. She’s also rumored to be playing Batgirl in an upcoming DC Film. That
is a rumor I am hoping is true.
A little Taekai drabble written by me. Ps this shit is just for fun.
Warning: smut (duh), rimming, possible interpretation of rape , Frosting ;)
It was D.O’s birthday today and Kai along with the other members of EXO had planned all week the perfect way to celebrate it. Baekhyun, Tao, and Chanyeol would work on decor; Chen, Lay and Xiumin on organizing guests and music. Of course sugar mamma Junmyeon would be financing most of the events. Sehun was given the simple task, as not to confuse his pretty little head too much, of keeping an eye on D.O.
This left Kai to bake the cake. The brunette made his way back to the dorm with arms full of grocery bags and a Taemin in tow.
“So remind me again why you practically dragged me by the collar out of my apartment for your so called emergency?” Taemin asked, more annoyed than usual.
I wanna just thank the universe for jung hoseok because i know he gotta heart that hurts but hes so strong and he keeps up his image of being our hope and someone we can always rely on to have a smile on his face and cheer us up. and he doesnt write in the fancafe or post on twitter like namjoon and yoongi do but he waits and he vents in songs. in lyrics he tells us about his suffering and his hurt .. yet he’s always there at the end of the song or the verse to be like “but you know what, theres always going to be light in darkness, im doing the best i can, just breathe because things will be okay”. I admire that and I can’t tell you how many times where i’ve just been in an absolutely terrible state of mind and I’ve thought about hoseok & bangtan and read/listened to their lyrics and its pulled me enough outta that darkness to go on another day
