In 2015, we were bombarded with celebrity gossip, album releases that changed our lives, and new trends that either irked or urged us to join the bandwagon. But this 365-day rift has come to an end and we’d like to pay homage to the amazingly, annoyingly, ardent news that we are leaving behind in order to effectively bring in the New Year.
As a millennial in 2015, I am inclined to be up on the latest spiel, whether it’s about Kanye’s newest Yeezy drop, or more importantly, Kanye’s decision to name his son “Saint.” The world of pop culture has become somewhat of an addictive hobby to people of all ages. Numerous entertainment apps grant us with endless ability to have information present at our finger tips, and we have yet to miss a beat when it comes to the industry’s biggest names and their business.
So much has happened in 2015 and although, every year is a year of transformation and jaw dropping footage of celebrities, we’d like to remind you of all that was accomplished this year in the celebrity world. It’s hard to squeeze this eventful year into one post, but we’ve managed to compile some of our favorite moments of 2015. From the vines that went viral, to the dances that became epidemics; here is our Team PYNK 2015 Recap from the PYNK Girl club house.
