WHAT 2018 WAS MADE OF

3 months ago | BY Jahnavi Prasad

A round-up of the year 

One blink and we will be out of 2018–didn’t it fly? We literally remember it being 2017 two seconds ago, going crazy over Bitcoin and here we are… saying Thankyou, Next!

Well, at least it wasn’t a boring year. Lots of things happened and even more celebrity weddings (what’s the new trend? A wedding is it? Let us not spoil it right in the intro. Let’s go back the 2018 memory lane for it to pinch us that 2018 really did (does) exist.

#1 Childish Gambino’s This is America
Woooaaa..  the four-minute, single-take music video is laden with metaphors about race and gun violence in America. If news didn’t give you a descriptor this is it. You should be knowing every incident it portrays.

DAD-CORE
We think after the term Colour-Blocked preceded by Athleisure, DadCore was the word of the fashion dictionary this year.2

MOTH LAMP MEMES
This series by far is the creepiest memes to have existed. But it did, and we had our share of laughs. Here’s one: He take flights, he eat your tights, but most importantly he love lights!  3

THE #METOO MOVEMENT
A movement that birth in 2017 against sexual harassment and assault especially at the workplace but really blew up this year. Lots of popular names were unmasked and let kudos to everyone who came forward and spoke up–breaking the silence to win the war. 4

THE WILDNESS OF WILD WILD COUNTRY
Let’s be honest, we all believed in Osho’spreechings until Chapman and Maclain Way’s docuseries told us the story of Rajneeshpuram– a utopian cult. The criminal activities, the conflicts and weird things that were harboured inside a ranch left us shook. Bye, Osho!

NICKI MINAJ vs CARDI B
Nicki Minaj and Cardi B’s feud has everything: a physical altercation in couture gowns; the alleged leaking of private phone numbers on the internet; a 10-part Instagram saga; an odd call for a truce. The only thing missing from this clash of rap titans is an actual rap song, but that’s hardly necessary cause it seems like all that noise isn’t going to be talent.

WILLIAM WILL TUTU
Who gets to ban what Serena Willaims wears? If you won’t allow the catsuit on the court then this is when she proved her on-court style won’t be compromised and goes, ‘here you go. Is this what you want?’ You’ll have it’. Behold her tennis tutu!

THE MEGA-WATT MEGA-STAR MEGA-WEDDINGS
Which celebrity didn’t get married this year? Tell us if we are wrong, we’ve literally seen more celebrity wedding than our own friends’. Love and marriage is in the air, let’s see who else is going to catch the flu.8

GEN Z OF BOLLYWOOD
It’s time for the younger clan of the Kapoors and Khan to take over the big screen.. and not just one, an entire bunch consisting of Janhvi Kapoor, Aayush Sharma, Ishan Khattar, Sara Ali Khan, Banita Sandhu… we can go on and on. Trust us, it’s a brand new directory.

THANK YOU, NEXT
It’s like it’s 2004 all over again! don’t we miss it a lot? Sorry,  Thank you, Next is Ariana Grande’s latest drop that has lots of references to the popular chick flicks–obv Mean Girls topping the charts followed by Legally Blonde, 13 going on 30 and Bring It On. Don’t we wish this was a chick flick of its own? Thank you, next…9
