  • Ariana Grande Surprises All With 3 New Songs

    It's become common practice for big musicians like Ariana Grande and Beyonce to suddenly drop new songs (and sometimes whole new albums!) on social media. They give no warning. They give no hype. One day, suddenly, the new songs or album are just there for all ears to hear. Who needs hype, anyway, when you're as big as Ariana and Beyonce? Get ready, because Ariana Grande recently did just that, surprising fans from across the world.

    On Tuesday, August 2nd, the gal with the most perfect ponytail ever simply posted, "love you" on Twitter. With that message was a link to her Soundcloud page. Because, what else do you need to say when you're Ariana Grande?

    Once on the Ariana's Soundcloud page, fans were surprised to see two brand new songs listed: "Voodoo Love" and "OG Honeymoon Ave (w/ Dap Kings).  Continue reading

  • Blogilates' Official Prom Dress Workout

    The process of finding that perfect prom dress, shoes, accessories, and everything else that goes into a prom night to remember is one that takes time and lots of research. It's important to start the process as early as possible in order to ensure you can take your time and not settle for anything you don't want.

    Part of the process to be prom ready that isn't always discussed with enough time to make an impact is working out! Toning up your body just the slightest bit can make all of the difference in the world for not only how you look, but how you feel in your dress. Knowing you put the time and effort in to look your best, from choosing a dress that fits your body perfectly, to your hair and make-up, to putting the time in to follow a routine workout, will have you feeling as confident as ever on the dance floor.

    That's why we were happy to see that certified fitness instructor of YouTube fame Cassey Ho recently posted a workout specifically for looking perfect in your prom dress to her YouTube channel Blogilates! She calls it her official prom dress workout, and it takes you through a handful of workouts that you can do in your own home - no gym needed, and completely equipment free. All you need is your own body and the will and focus to stay on-point from now through your prom date (and hopefully keeping at it well after prom!).  Continue reading

  • Taylor Swift Surprise "All Of Me" Performance with John Legend

    Taylor Swift is off on her 1989 tour, and she is basically surprising people left and right at every stop with famous musicians, celebrities, and even sports stars showing up on-stage with her. From Kobe Bryant to Alanis Morissette to Ellen DeGeneres, Tay is pretty darn popular! Her newest 1989 tour surprise has got us Roo Girls talking for more reasons than one, though.

    For her big 1989 date in Los Angeles, CA, she had a big surprise for her fans. Tay brought out artist John Legend for a duet on his song "All of Me." How did this all happen? Apparently, because Taylor happened to hear that John and his wife Chrissy Teigen were on their way over to see her performance. So, she called to see if John wanted to join her on stage, and join she did!

    Of course, if you know us at RissyRoos.com, the Tay and John duet obviously wasn't the only thing we were crushing over. Look at that gorgeous long-sleeved gown Taylor wore (which she was clearly loving by all of her little movements)! It had us dreaming of prom days, to say the least. It also had us thinking of a particular dress that makes for a perfect way to get Taylor's look for your next formal event: Tarik Ediz 92579.

    Tarik Ediz 92579

    Style 92579 is a vibrant ball gown that features a high neckline, lace illusion bodice, and a full tulle skirt. The elegance and boldness of this dress basically screams Taylor Swift!

    John isn't the only artist that she brought up on stage at the Los Angeles Staples Center show, though. St. Vincent and Beck also joined her on stage to sing Beck's song "Dreams." Check it out below.

    And, of course, with a change of artists comes a change of outfit! She put on a more flirty choice - a two piece white romper, which had us thinking of the sexy white rompers worn in her Bad Blood music video. To copy this white two piece look for a perfect homecoming choice, we're loving Black by Blush C319.

    Blush c319

    Style C319 is a chic and sleek two piece jersey knit featuring a tank style crop top encrusted with opaque color coordinating beadwork and a rouged pencil skirt accented with a belt of matching beading.

    From genre changing albums, to awesome celebrity friends, to super chic fashion choices, Tay certainly never disappoints. We can't wait to see what she has up her sleeve next!

  • This High School Promposal Gone Wrong Will Leave You Heartbroken

    Lots of planning goes into promposals these days, and you can only hope for the best when it's time to pop the question. Most promposals go down without a hitch, as many times it's a boyfriend or girlfriend asking their significant other in a cute way to prom. But, there are cases where the proposer doesn't know if the proposee will actually be accepting, and this is one example of that.

    This high schooler went for a daring prom proposal - asking the girl he hoped to go to prom with in front of an entire football stadium full of people. He must have thought this promposal was in the bag, but that it was not! After the high schooler asks his hopeful date over the microphone if she'll go to prom with him, he was let down anything but gently as the girl responds in the microphone, "I already have a date." Awww! You can tell the high schooler is shocked by his response, and we can't blame him.

    How the word didn't get around that the girl already got a date is beyond me! That's what friends are supposed to be for, after all! Oh well, it might be a promposal gone wrong, but it's certainly something he'll look back on in a few years and get a good laugh out of, if he's not already.

    Sadly, this isn't the only promposal fail we stumbled upon this year. For another cringing moment, check out Daniel's promposal fail... to his own girlfriend, of all people!

  • A Prom Surprise Transforms Abby From Patient to Princess

    Normal life is like a dream for 17 year old Abby Gladin from Atlanta, Georgia, who is living with Crohn's disease, a chronic inflammatory bowl illness. For the last 10 years now, she's been in and out of hospitals and doctors appointments, getting countless surgeries and missing out on tons of school. She lives such a difficult life, so one of her dreams is just to live a normal life. And one of the most normal and fun parts of any teenager is going to prom, of course. In Abby's own words, all she wants is "a night of simple, sophisticated elegance." We certainly couldn't blame her.

    Abby Gladin going prom dress shopping

    So, one day while walking out of a routine doctor's appointment, she got an amazing surprise. She found her parents telling her that they'd be taking her on an extra special prom dress shopping expedition, complete with her own chauffeured car from Uber, all arranged by Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. The car took everyone to a boutique in Georgia, where she could pick any dress she wanted for free! She told 11alive.com, "I feel so special!"

    Some dresses were harder than others to wear because of her colostomy, a medical device attached to her abdomen, but she searched away! She explained, "I want my dress to be something you'd see on the red carpet." After lots of looking, they found Abby's perfect dress (she said "yes" to the dress!) and she looked so gorgeous that her mother couldn't help but cry. Her mom explained, "Some days she doesn't see how really beautiful she is because of this." We sure hope this whole experience helped to show Abby just how special she is!

    That wasn't the end of her special day of prom shopping, though. Miss Georgia and Miss Colorado stopped by to place a special princess crown on Abby's head!

    Abby with Miss Colorado and Miss Georgia!

    Even though the end of the school year will bring more surgeries, Abby can look forward to a special night in a special dress with her boyfriend. 11alive.com said that they will update the story once Abby attends prom with pictures of her all dressed up, so keep a look-out!

  • A So Adorbs Robin Williams and Ben Stiller Prom-posal!

    Robin Williams passed away on August 11th, and we still miss him so much. He brought an unprecedented amount of joy and laughter to this world that nobody will ever forget. From more serious movies like Good Will Hunting and Bicentennial Man, to laugh-out-loud funny movies like The Birdcage, to kids' favorites like Hook and Night at the Museum, Robin had an amazing talent and personality that will always stay in the hearts of his fans.

    Even with everything the late comedian did, two words that we never thought we'd hear in the same sentence were 'Robin Williams' and 'prom,' but the actor managed to have some prom fun during one of the last movies he filmed, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb...and with another famous comedian, too... Ben Stiller! Skyler Gisondo, who plays the son of Ben Stiller's character in the film, was a senior in high school at the time that the film was being shot. Even though he was away from home filming Night at the Museum, he still was planning to go to prom and had a special person in mind that he wanted to ask to be his date. So, he asked his co-stars Robin Williams and Ben Stiller to give him a hand with a prom proposal! The two stars not only agreed to help Skyler in his promposal quest, but they had quite the enthusiasm to share!

    http://youtu.be/9WCEQy1-msE

    "All morning, Robin was pitching more ideas," Skyler told The Hollywood Reporter. "He was saying, 'Can I say this? Would it be appropriate to say this?' You're Robin Williams. You can say whatever you want! It turned into this three-minute, ridiculous thing. A prom-posal. I realized that was the most awesome three minutes of my life and I've accepted it will go downhill from there."

    In the super cute video, which you can watch above, Robin and Ben advertise all of the great 'benefits' of dating Skyler, and even pretend to have a whole special performance ready to go for the potential date's (Hilary's) pleasure.

    This all happened back in May, but the video is timeless for so many reasons, and shows how great (and funny) of people both Robin and Ben are. In his interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Skyler even said that his time working with Robin was "invaluable."

    "Robin was the bottomless reservoir of kindless and hilarity," Skyler told The Hollywood Reporter. "It was just so special to work so closely with this guy whose movies I've grown up with and watch his preparedness and his kindness."

    Most importantly: the Robin Williams Ben Stiller Prom-posal totally worked and landed Skyler the prom date with Hilary!

    We hope you enjoy the video as much as we did, and that perhaps it gives you some inspiration for your own promposal! Rest in peace, Robin - you continue to bring us so much joy.
