Sure, we might not write in-depth cultural critiques of everything that makes a splash on pop culture’s radar every week, but that doesn’t mean we’re not talking about it around the Vv Magazine office watercooler. That’s why, every Friday, Vv Magazine’s editors roundup the stuff we loved, hated, debated, and obsessed over during the week that was with #WeeklyObsessions. We’re not ashamed to admit that we do more than just keep up with the Kardashians — we have office polls on what everyone from Bruce Jenner and Kate Middleton to Marc Jacobs and Justin Trudeau will do next…
Justin Bieber’s New Underwear Ads For Calvin Klein
Vv Verdict: LOVED them!
While the social media peanut gallery was busy asking, “Did he stuff his junk?” everyone at the Vv Magazine office was saying, “Man, Calvin Klein is going to sell a shitload of undies and perfumes to a new generation of teens” and “Holy eff — who is the Biebs’ publicist? Because this rebound is epic.”
Toronto Sex Parties
Vv Verdict: Invite us next time – we won’t disappoint!
Did you know that invite-only sex parties are the new cocaine and champagne nights for Toronto’s most high-profile socialites? 2015 is going to be interesting. Read all about it in this week’s Scene & Heard: Wild Sex Parties + A Single Conrad Black?!
Sia’s Music Video For “Elastic Heart”
Vv Verdict: Like Dance Moms, it’s art, man
On Wednesday, Sia released the video for her latest single “Elastic Heart,” which led to both praise and criticism due to the raw dance performances of its stars: 12-year-old Maddie Ziegler of Dance Moms fame and a nearly-naked Shia LaBeouf. The whole video, inspired by werewolves, takes place in a cage, and while haters have called it “pedophilic,” we think it’s beautiful (and not just because we’re already shameless fans of the reality TV dance series, Dance Moms).
Miley Cyrus’ New Platinum ‘Do
Vv Verdict: We’d rather go blue
Miley Cyrus may have kicked off 2015 by going even blonder, but we’re not feelin’ Hollywood’s latest round of blonde makeovers. In fact, we’re all about the faux natural-looking blue hair trend, pioneered by Nicole Ritchie in 2014 and now making its way into the mainstream.

Malia Obama’s Leaked Selfie
Vv Verdict: She’s the new Kendall Jenner
Maybe it took a leaked selfie of the 16-year-old First Daughter for us to realize just how gorgeous Malia Obama is, but considering her Dad’s second term in the White House is almost up, we’ll be the first to admit that the timing seems almost too good. Ford Models, sign this girl immediately. Move over, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid; POTUS offspring are the new reality star kids-turned-supermodels.

Lara Flynn Boyle’s Face
Vv Verdict: Please, Hollywood, give us back Laura Palmer
Um, while everyone’s been all, “What did Renee Zellweger do to her face?” apparently Lara Flynn Boyle, aka the one-time silver-screen siren Laura Palmer from Twin Peaks, has been getting a little too filler-happy. If you only look from the shoulders up, it almost looks like weight gain, but one glance at her tiny calves and we can’t help but wonder if cosmetic surgery interventions will be the new cocaine and booze interventions in Hollywood. Lara Flynn Boyle and Renee Zellweger aren’t the only celebrities who’ve been dramatically altering their faces. You won’t believe who topped out list of Best/Craziest Celebrity Makeovers 2014.
