How We Heard About One Direction
In honor of the four year anniversary of our favorite guys coming together to make sweet, sweet music, a few of us here at the Aubergine Squad decided to reflect on how it all began for each of us.
Some of us were there from the very beginning while others fell victim to time wasting stigmas. But ultimately, like Simon Cowell taking five ragtag teens and turning them into pop idols, we found the boys and, in turn, found each other.
Yesterday was a beautiful day.
Eternal Tweens Spotlights: Pornhub Katie, The Best Twitter You’re (Probably) Not Following
Spotlight by Christina
Here at Eternal Tweens, we like boys. We like boys a lot. We like boys who are in bands and we like it when said boys in bands are wearing as little clothes as possible (and when you’re a One Direction fan, there’s a 70% chance Harry Styles is naked at any given time, which is reason for major swoonage).
But if there’s one person who loves scantily clad boys as much as we do, it’s Community Coordinater at Pornhub (yes, that Pornhub), Katie, otherwise known as “Pornhub Katie.”
Well look at that! What a perfect Saturday afternoon read!!
Eminem at Wembley Stadium, 11th July

Concert Review by Bess
I saw Eminem live for the first time in 2003 on his Anger Management Tour, and being only 14 at the time it was the first big concert I ever attended (at Milton Keynes’ huge, 75,000+ capacity National Bowl). It was 10 years before I saw Em live again (headlining Reading Festival last year), and Em’s two massive sell-out shows at London’s famous Wembley Stadium would mark his first headlining shows of his own in the UK since that tour in 2003, and his first shows in London since 2001.
Although Em was flanked by a full live band, the sound quality was absolutely awful. There was something wrong with the sound system which made it difficult to understand what some of the songs were - but nobody let that bother them too much. The crowd went nuts. Seeing as I can count the amount of times Em has played in the UK over the last decade on one hand and still have fingers to spare, the majority of the crowd hadn’t had the pleasure of seeing this ‘Rap God’ live before, and you could tell that everyone in the huge 90,000 crowd felt privileged to be there despite the sound issues.
Bess goes to like a bajillion shows, I’m so jealous.
