If you’re the impatient type, chances are you use social media to find out—long before any ‘legit’ news source will tell you—whether your favourite star is dropping a fresh album or releasing a new book. It’s one of the more positive sides to celeb oversharing online; fans get a rare glimpse into projects that are otherwise kept hush hush.
Not only do these images tease, but they hype the record/film/clothing or makeup launch for whatever said celeb is working on. Sometimes the posts even offer a peek into the process behind the scenes.
It’s also entertaining to see how stars hint at new work. Some opt for cryptic messages, upload obscure photos for fans to decipher, while others come right out and say it.
This week, Hollywood sent a handful of clues into future projects (or at least posts that seem like clues). Here are a few celebs whose social media you should keep close tabs on.
Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian West look like twins in a promo for their lip kit collab
Big sis Khloe has already done a collection for Kylie Cosmetics, so it was only a matter of time before the other members of the fam did too. How similar do these two look in the teaser video? Surely Kylie must’ve used Kim’s ID when she was underage.
Adam Levine recreates classic pop culture promo shots to tease a collab with Big Boi
Is there a better way to announce a collaboration than by Photoshopping two modern musicians into classic buddy cop situations? The answer is no. This Miami Vice gem that Levine uploaded of himself and the rapper isn’t the only one either–there’s also Lethal Weapon 3 and Bad Boys II.
Lana Del Ray wrote a song inspired by North Korea
Lana’s little tune has us longing for a peaceful afternoon in the woods. Hopefully she turns this into a full track, because it’s pretty catchy.
I’m not gonna lie- I had complex feelings about spending the weekend dancing whilst watching tensions w North Korea mount. I find It’s a tightrope between being vigilantly observant of everything going on in the world and also having enough space and time to appreciate God’s good earth the way it was intended to be appreciated. On my way home I found myself compelled to visit an old favorite place of mine at the rim of the world highway where I took a moment to sit down by the sequoia grove and write a little song. I just wanted to share this in hopes that one individual’s hope and prayer for peace might contribute to the possibility of it in the long run. Hope everyone has a nice day, with love from California
