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!!

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.

Makeup Tips from India
Well! It’s that time of year again. If you live in a place like me (a polluted hole in between the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee) where the humidity never ceases and the heat acts like a shitty oven that burned all your cookies, you might also be having some trouble with not looking like the Nazi in Raiders of the Lost Ark. (Here you go, if you’re not familiar: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2ZpsbGr7s8)
However, I’ve found some products to combat the face melting.
India (pheatus) can help y’all beat the heat and look real pretty.

Essay by Christina
I was out the other day and ran into an old friend who I hadn’t seen in a while. We hadn’t really spoken since my high school graduation (aaaall those years ago…hah), and her being a few years my junior left me to wonder how she had been since my unsightly departure from school bells and block schedules. Upon the casual ‘how are you doing’s and (hopefully genuine) ‘you look so good!’s, we started to discuss some high school memories; in particular, the obsession for One Direction we shared in the early days of waiting outside auditoriums for the Up All Night tour (despite not really needing to) and linking each other the video diaries filmed on the X-Factor steps. Among this commemorative chat, I asked her if she had tickets to their current stadium tour. She wrinkled her nose and shrugged, and I braced myself for what I knew was to come. “Eh, they’re kinda old now,” was her response.

McBusted came off the back of a mammoth 34-date arena tour of the UK to play a few summer shows - ending in a massive headlining show at London’s famous Hyde Park on the 6th July.
But a week before that career-defining show they played the much smaller Chantry Park in Ipswich, Suffolk. The rain didn’t dampen spirits (although it did dampen everything else) and once again the self-proclaimed ‘super-group’ put on a stellar show.
Bess (thank-your-lucky-stars) wrote this awesome review of the McBusted/Backstreet Boys show she saw recently!! Check it oouuuut!!!!
