Looking back at childhood photos can be a pretty painful experience. While we’d like to blame our parents for dressing us like idiots, the truth is we used to beg them to buy us the most heinous apparel. In retrospect, our multicolored braces weren’t cool, leggings didn’t fit our bodies as good back then as they do now, and our pink fuzzy pigtail holders didn’t make us look like Baby Spice, they made us look like baby prostitutes.

Let's ignore the parallels that can be drawn between Lil Savion's Don't Make Me Snap My Fingers and Rebecca Black's Friday. It would be way too obvious to point out atrocious DIY production and the awkward I-forced-my-friends-to-be-here backup dancers. Nope, we're above such uncreative jokes.
YouTube has become the ultimate time-waster, and the number of views on these videos is stark proof of how much time we spend watching other people dance/sing/embarrass themselves on our computers. However, I have to disagree a little bit with what the world seems to be watching the most.
When I get ready for a football game at my school, I throw on some shorts and a team T-shirt. If I'm feeling really festive, I'll wear an orange headband or some blue eyeshadow. But these people put me to shame. Some football fans live for Saturdays and show support for their teams by going all out. Without these people, Saturdays would seem more tame. But why would we want that?

If you're not familiar with what happened a few weeks ago, Russel Armstrong (husband of Taylor Armstrong) was found dead in his home, hanging from a rope. While some sources say it was due to depression after Taylor had filed for divorce a month before the tragedy, authorities believe there were also a lot of mental health issues going on as well. So what was Bravo supposed to do?

The "Skyscraper" singer walked the red carpet wearing a tight, body-hugging silver mini-dress with a plunging neckline. She accessorized with some metallic bangles and a pair of Louboutin pumps, and even though 99% of us would never be able to pull off a look like that if we tried, Lovato was subject to a lot of criticism that night. So what was everyone upset over? Her body.

It's so temping to share with the world Facebook how miffed you were when your roommate stumbled in at 3 a.m. on a Tuesday night with some rando. Your girlfriends at home would def feel your pain, and you know they'd leave a few snarky comments on you wall to help ease the severe mental damage you sustained from being woken up at such an ungodly hour.

The first time I tuned into ABC Family was years and years ago. Other channels had been showing previews for an ABC Family drama about a girl and a horse. Still heartbroken over the loss of my beloved Caitlin’s Way (they totally stole the plotline!), I decided to give Wildfire a try.
Whenever I read Maxim, along with staring at hot chicks, I learn the most random facts in the world. I never knew men were so interested in totally irrelevant and pointless information. Here's a few random facts for you: Did you know Illinois recently passed a law that allows residents to pick up roadkill?

Newsweek just released their 2011 college rankings, and they’re pretty useless for prospective students. Top Schools for Activists? Boring. Best Schools for Foreign Students? I could just study abroad. Most Rigorous? Why would I want to challenge myself? Here are five categories that Newsweek should have included on their list that prospective students would actually need to know about.
Now, every school’s different, with varying numbers of students on campus, geographic locations and demographic make-ups. BUT, I’m a firm believer that there are types that we all have to put up/study/rub elbows/sleep/deal with.

Let me start off by saying I don't ever plan on becoming famous. I don't even want to be famous. Enduring the public 24/7 is not my idea of fun. With that being said, there are some famous people I kind of would LOVE to be friends with. Also keep in mind some of these people I'm basing on either public appearances or characters they have played. I have no real connection to them.
You didn't leave all your work until Sunday night did you? What!?! You did. That's okay. No stress. You'll get it all done. We're so sure that you'll get it all done that we're giving you a few more excuses to procrastinate. You know how you tend to turn into something FIERCE when a Nicki Minaj song comes on the radio? Yeah? Well, these people do too... and they caught it on tape.
Once upon a time, music videos were just that: a video to go along with a song, but over the past few years, music videos have gone from simple, low-budget, dance-along clips to 10 minute long mini-movies complete with deep plots, intense battle scenes, and A-list actors. In honor of the upcoming 2011 VMA's, let's check out some recent videos that made us all make the "WTF" face.
Can you believe it's finally here? This is the 100th Episode of CC Beauty Live! I'm so glad that after three years, you guys aren't sick of me yet. I can't begin to tell you how thrilled I am that this day has come.
The woman in the middle and the one on the right are both very slim. They are ideal according to the “thin is in” mentality glorified in the media, but in all likelihood quite a bit smaller than the average American woman. The woman on the left is the only who looks “different,” as her silhouette is significantly more curvy than the others featured in the ad.
Sometimes, I just need a chick-lit read. I've been trying to get into a whole stack of "serious" books and it's just not happening. As summer comes to a close, I want to enjoy every second instead of working my brain into a novel I'm not really feeling. The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud has been sitting on my shelf on a while and, even though it's sappy and predictable, I really enjoyed it!
In case you haven't noticed, we're getting kinda obsessed with our Youtube channel and CC TV. We're creating new series left and right, as well as special features like our Adobe tutorial. And now we'd like to introduce you to our newest series, Mouthy. It's a bi-monthly Friday vlog that will cover everything that's in and hot and trendy, brought to you by the fabulous Morgan Lynzi.
Summer's almost over and fall's just around the corner (say it ain't so!), so while you pack up your plastic bins and gear up for the new school year, just remember that there's always one good thing about the fall: the new TV line-up. It's finally that time of year when the channels stop playing re-runs and start actually showing new content.

It's every girls worst nightmare that she'll grow old with seventy cats and no husband. While it's completely reasonable to want to avoid this feline fate, the opposite is true of dogs. Having recently adopted a puppy, I've found reason to believe that having a furry friend is better than having a boyfriend. They may be mans best friend, but dogs are woman's best wingman.
But just when you thought yesteryear held the all the wholesomeness of an Ovaltine commercial, think again. Domestic violence was not a problem, people. It was exploited as a fun, let's-throw-knives-at-the-kids-for-fame activity! Seriously, take a look at this lady.
There's something about those dreamy musicians with those cute little accents. Ever since the Beatles invaded the American scene, we've been craving the latest foreign musical phenomenon. Do you ever wonder why Justin Bieber's so popular? 'Cause he's small and cuddly? No! It's because he's Canadian! Somehow, those foreigners know exactly what we want to hear and they always deliver. Could it be that their music is just better? Or is it those tantalizing accents?! I'll take accents for $500, Alex!
I was watching 7 Minutes in Heaven with Jason Sudeikis this morning and had a revelation: I think I like him. Now, don't get me wrong, it's not like I didn't like him before, I just never really thought about him. But you know what? He's kinda cute. And goofy.
If you've ever looked through back to school editions of furniture and home decor magazines, they often focus on things you might want to buy to make your new dorm feel super homey and look super cute. The problem is, I'm not sure any of these "dorm furniture" designers have actually ever seen a dorm room, let alone lived in one. Like, I really love this floor to ceiling gilded mirror and the six foot long purple couch you're showing me here, but I'm pretty sure once I put all that in my dorm there would be no room for me.
