We as a public talk a lot about how perfect (or imperfect) a celebrity’s hair, body, skin or style is. As weird as it is, we don’t often talk about people’s eyebrows.
This makes sense considering the eyebrows are secondary to the eyes – who really pays attention to eyebrows anyways? As long as you don’t have a unibrow, you are generally good.
However, this does not mean eyebrows are not important – the people with awesome eyebrows deserve to be noticed. Eyebrows really have the potential to frame or compliment a face. It could also make you some money, especially if you’re NBA player Anthony Davis who trademarked his famous unibrow.
What makes a good set of eyebrows, you wonder? Well, thickness, neatness, and general shape. So who has some beautiful eyebrows to lust after?
HERE ARE 17 CELEBS WHO ANDPOP THINK HAS THE BEST EYEBROWS:

Drake may have “Started from the Bottom,” but Jon Lajoie “Started as a Baby,” so take that Drizzy!
The Canadian comedian uses his rap skills to share the hardships he had to endure when he started as a baby. It really is hard out there for a baby and it’s about time someone gave them a voice in order to share their stories with the world because, as he states so poetically, ” if you never were a baby than you wouldn’t understand.”
Drake has a new song and it’s called “Girls Love Beyoncé” (featuring James Fauntleory who sings “Say My Name” as the hook).
Oh, dammit. Ladies, Drake knows. He knows our secret. He knows that we all love Beyoncé and with that knowledge, he know must carry the heavy burden of knowing all of our complex secrets. Next time we all congregate, we need to make a new secret and this time, we have to keep it on the down low. I’m looking at you, Sasha Fierce.
LISTEN TO “GIRLS LOVE BEYONCE” BY DRAKE FEAT. JAMES FAUNTLEORY BELOW:
Jumping out of winter and into spring means starting fresh, and this begins with your home. Many see cleaning as the most mundane of all tasks but here’s a Spring Cleaning playlist to help liven things up! You might as well dance as you clean, right?
1) Freaks and Geeks – Childish Gambino
When I’m cleaning, I become possessed by the spirits of both Tupac and Biggie and think I’m some kind of reincarnated rap goddess. This is my favourite song to rap along to, especially if nobody is home and I can use my spray bottle as a mic.
Best for: getting into the cleaning mood, doing your audition tape for Young Money.
2) Are You That Somebody – Aaliyah
I also enjoy dancing while I clean and as a wee youth I had the choreography from this video memorised. I’ve realised that I still know about 50 per cent of the moves (coincidence because my middle name is Alia? I think not!) and always decide that I should try them, especially if I am in the bathroom where the lighting is good.
Best for: cleaning grout, performing for yourself in the mirror.
3) Chocolate – The 1975
I’m obsessed with this song and have been trying to find a way to jam it into this column for ages (seriously, I think all the YouTube views might just be me. You’re welcome, The 1975!) I have a recurring iPod fever dream where I am the lead singer of a band which has the popularity of One Direction but the credibility of an indie band. Yes, it’s very elaborate; I don’t expect non-insane people to understand. Annyway, this song is our lead single and we perform it on talk-show stages which are actually my bathroom. The moral of this story is that a fun fantasy actually makes cleaning super fun and rewarding, even if the rewards are entirely in your mind.
Best for: making cleaning way less boring.
4) Scream & Shout – will.i.am and Britney Spears
What’s the deal with Britney in this song? Is she British? Why is she British? This in-depth analysis has led to me listening to this song an alarming number of times and is perfect at distracting me from some of my most hated jobs. Grossed out by the hair that has been living in your U bend? Just put this song on and Brit’s dulcet faux-English tones will take you to your happy place (unless you’re me and find bad accents displeasing).
Best for: doing gross out jobs such as removing hair from various place and having to decide which of your treasured cat sweaters should be given to charity.
5) F—kin Problems – A$AP Rocky ft. Drake and 2 Chainz
With another month gone, here’s a quick look at what ANDPOP was up this March via Instagram photos!
1. The Human Hashtag
Prom is a time that most kids either look back on with fondness or despair (when you play the game of prom, you either win or you die!). Some people look great and find the perfect person/people to share it with and others…don’t. Some even elect not to go at all. If you do plan on going, here are 8 songs for the perfect promposal that will help woo your guy/girl/hobo off the street into going with you, and hopefully, bring you one step closer to the night of your dreams and/or nightmares.
1) Let’s Go – Matt and Kim
Not everyone wants to go to prom. Some kids legitimately don’t feel like going, while others think they’re being cool non-conformists by staying at home, all while their friends are having the time of their lives. Basically, those who opt to stay home are the people who’ll regret their decisions later. Convince your girl or guy to go with you by playing this upbeat tune that chants “let’s go” over and over again. Eventually you’ll get them with the not-so-subliminal messaging alone.
2) Marry You –Bruno Mars
Prom is an excellent time for people who are in a relationship. In fact, in my final year of high school, prom was the primary motivation for even acquiring a boo. Even though your partner is a tailor-made prom date, you should still put in the effort when asking officially them to be your prom date. For the sake of cuteness, use this frankly adorable Bruno Mars song (note: just DON’T get married. Other than that, the rest of the song is pretty cute).
3) One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks) – One Direction
Maybe you have the perfect person in mind to take to prom; they’re cute, funny, nice, and you want to put your face on their face. But— plot twist—they have no idea that you exist. Use this song to tell them that you WILL get them to go to prom with you, one way or another.
Note: author not responsible for anyone being creeped out and/or terrified by this prom-posal tactic.
4) Umbrella ft. Jay-Z feat. Rihanna
When it comes to hip hop covers, often than not you’re left thinking “why would they even attempt covering THAT song!?” But then there are those that cause you to begin dancing around your room with excitement.
But what’s most surprising is when those covers are done by non-hip hop artists. I don’t know if it’s the initial shock of “oh my god, this actually sounds good,” or the weird juxtaposition of when the song is done in another genre entirely. The bottom line, though, is that they’re good and all we want to do is listen to them.
Here are 10 of the best hip hop covers from non-hip hop artists.
Ed Sheeran and Passenger — “No Diggity / Thrift Shop”
A pretty recent cover comes from music’s most soulful ginger, Ed Sheeran, who teamed up with Passenger’s Mike Rosenberg during a recent visit to Australian radio to give us an amazing mash up of Blackstreet’s 90′s hit “No Diggity” and Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop.”
Ed Sheeran — “Empire State of Mind”
Ed Sheeran makes another appearance on this list with his cover of Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ “Empire State” of Mind for BBC Radio 1. Ed can do no wrong, so it’s no surprise that this cover (like everything he does) is nothing short of perfection.
“Bootleg Fireworks (Burning Up)” – Dillon Francis
Dillon Francis’ latest single mashes house music and reggaeton into an absolute club banger. Seriously people, this is the stuff you want to get down to on the dance floor. The video for the track is just as crazy as the song, with Francis’ giant bobblehead superimposed with lazers and a detachable mouth. It’s a little creepy but bobblehead Francis is having so much fun you’ll just want to party next to him.
“5AM in Toronto” – Drake
Drake performs an ode to his hometown, Toronto, in his latest track. The production is nice and low key, letting Drake’s smart rhymes shine through. It appears as though Drake snapped and finally wanted to address his haters as he talks about his rise to stardom, his talent, and calls out those against him.
While many of us were sleeping soundly in our beds, Drake treated his nightowl fans to a treat. Posting the single “5AM in Toronto” early Thursday morning on his October’s Very Own SoundCloud Page, the hit has since been played over 1,100,000 times.
Although the song isn’t like “Started From the Bottom“, Drizzy’s “5AM in Toronto” hits back at haters with lyrics like:
“You underestimated greatly, most number ones ever, how long did it really take me?” and “Give these ni**as the look, the verse, and even the hook That’s why every song sound like Drake featuring Drake.”
According to Exclaim!, the new song is the follow-up to the track “9AM in Dallas” and was produced by Toronto’s Boi-1da ( also known as Matthew Samuels) who has previously worked with artists like Eminem.
The lyrics in this song are significantly better than “Started From the Bottom”, although I love Drake’s continuous theme of giving tribute to his home city. It just makes me wonder though, was his CD sponsored by The City of Toronto?!!
Justin Bieber has recently released the lyric video for his upcoming single, “Right Here,” featuring felling Canadian superstar Drake.
The video is a treat in itself as it uses stop motion to bring the baby-faced pop singer’s words to life as they scroll between and on sets of speakers.
“Right Here” is just one of the many hits on Bieber’s Believe album and will soon join “Beauty and the Beat,” “As Long As You Love Me,” and “All Around The World” as one of the album’s best single.
Snow, Walmart, and Toronto, Drake’s new music video for “Started at the Bottom” is here.
The music video plays obvious homage to his life in Toronto, Ontario and his childhood working long hour jobs and playing soccer. The music video clearly shows that he started from the bottom in Toronto, and made it to partying it up in Hollywood. It’s actually a pretty cute and heartwarming music video despite the portion where two guys talk directly into a girl’s chest… because of course.
Watch “Started from the Bottom” here
“Started From The Bottom” – Drake
Have you ever wondered how Drake started his career? From the bottom, of course…or so he tells us in his brand new single “Started From The Bottom.” I don’t know about you, but I was definitely itching for some new Drake and he was kind enough to surprise us with a new single and message to his fans. The new track departs a little from his usual smooth crooning with a hard beat and strong rapping but damn, is it good.
“Doobie” – M.I.A.
Do you remember what you were doing back in 2007? Well, M.I.A. was busy recording this banging track with producer Danja. Danja went on to create hits with Britney Spears and Pink, and he and M.I.A.’s track lay forgotten until now. Since it was recorded five years ago, the track sounds like it would have fit right in with M.I.A.’s second album Kala. Either way, I’m glad it finally surfaced!
Looks like Drake is truly living up to his motto.
With his hit “The Motto” making the acronym YOLO (you only live once) an annoyingly pervasive phrase for the past year, Drake thinks he is entitled to a pay cheque with his famous tagline appearing on merchandise everywhere.
Spending his Christmas Eve strolling around Macy’s and Walgreens, the rapper took a couple of pictures on his Instagram page to show his dismay with the label appearing on clothing such as hats and T-shirts.
Under the image from Walgreens, which features a stack of tacky caps, Drake wrote, “Walgreens … you gotta either chill or cut the cheque.”
And under the photo from Macy’s, which features a T-shirt featuring Peanuts characters Charlie Brown and Snoopy, he added, “Macy’s … same goes for you.”
I can’t even blame Drake for being offended. Seeing Snoopy and Charlie Brown used like that is JUST disrespectful.
But even if Drake is planning to ask for the rights to “YOLO”, the rapper might run into some trouble. According to Gawker, there has been already more than 100 U.S. trademark applications to use the acronym on an array of different products.
But honest to God, if I see another shirt or hat with the tagline YOLO on it, I’m going to have a fit.
Drake has always been expressive on Twitter to his fans. And when his grandmother Evelyn passed away a few days ago, he took to the social networking site to reveal the sad news.
“Rest in peace to my grandmother Evelyn Sher. What a day to go…thankful to have had the times we did.”
Drake, who has always been close to his mom and grandmother, has mentioned his grandmother plenty of times in his songs. In fact, she was even featured in the song ”Look What You’ve Done“, which was a track off the rapper’s latest album Take Care.
In the song, she is heard saying, “All I can say Aubrey is, I remember the good times we had together and the times I used to look after you and I still have wonderful feelings about that. So God bless you, and I hope I’ll see you.”
RIP Evelyn. My deepest condolences go to Drake and his family.
Not surprisingly, The Weeknd‘s new music video for “The Zone” ft. Drake includes tons of dark, artsy shots of Abel Tesfaye singing in creepy abandoned rooms and hallways. It’s all very sombre.
These moody shots are contrasted with clips of a bright, cheery woman wearing white lingerie in a room with colourful balloons.
He sings: “Why you rushing me baby/ It’s only us alone/ I don’t wanna die tonight baby/ So let me sip this slow/ I’ll give you what you called for/ Just let me get in my zone.”
The Weeknd’s new album Trilogy drops Nov. 13.

There’s no question Drake has made Canada infinitely cooler with his smooth rhymes and slick fashion sense. Turns out, he always had that swagger.
He had a baby fro
Aubrey Drake Graham was born in 1986 in Toronto. His family is just as musical as he is: his dad played drums and both uncles rocked the guitar.
Smiles for miles
Drake has been working the camera with his trademark grin since he was around two. He even used a picture from this sesh on the cover of his Born Successful mixtape in 2009.
Drake grew up playing right wing for the Weston Red Wings. “I’m a big Leafs fan and Toronto’s a great hockey city,” he told ESPN in 2010.
Best. Yearbook. Ever. Read more…
He may be a bit late in the game, but Drake is officially a high school graduate!
“97% on my final exam. 88% in the course,” the 25-year-old rapper tweeted on Tuesday. “One of the greatest feelings in my entire life. As of tonight I have graduated high school!”
Hitting the books this summer, Drake has previously said that he wanted to make his mom proud by getting a high school diploma. And now that he has achieved that goal, he even took the time to thank those who have helped him along the way.
“Thank you to my teacher Kim Janzen for spending the last 5 months working tirelessly with me!! OVO SOUND,” Drake added.
While we would have loved to see a candid of you in a cap and gown, it’s nice to know that education is a priority in his life.
Although he’s from Detroit, Big Sean loves Canada. He made one of his first television appearances EVER on MuchMusic at age 14. Coincidentally, Sean also likes Canadians. He just finished working with Justin Bieber on “As Long As You Love Me” and told us he’s also a big fan of Drake. He told @Jordans_life about his upcoming album and another potential collaboration with Bieber.
“Where Were You” — Drake & Dawn Richard
Drake’s new collab with Dawn Richard (of Diddy-Dirty-Money fame) is the perfect example of how a female vocalist can add that extra oomph to a song. The previously unreleased “Where Were You” is a classic tear-jerking Drake track about two ex-lovers still pining for each other. “Where Were You” was originally recorded as “Whatever Became of You” by Colin Munroe for Thank Me Later and was scrapped from the album. Now re-released with a haunting synth base, Drake and Dawn’s vocals complement each other beautifully and you can really hear the emotion in their voices. Thank goodness this gem of a song wasn’t lost forever!
“Closer” — Tegan and Sara
Tegan and Sara have been experimenting with a more electro-fied sound in the past few years, with their recent “Body Work” collaboration with Morgan Page really bringing out their radio-friendly side. The Canadian twins’ new single “Closer” is a deeper dive for them into the dance music sound. With tons of synth, Tegan and Sara have pretty much turned their backs on the alternative/acoustic rock sound they were once known for. I don’t know about you but I’m loving their new sound. Kudos to the ladies for staying current and evolving. Tegan and Sara will be releasing a new album early next year.
“Paradise on Earth” — Cris Cab Read more…
WTF is the Illuminati and how is Mac Miller connected to it? He sat down with @Jordans_Life to reveal the little he knows about WORLD CONSPIRACIES. Mac also talked about Drake showing up at his show with his entourage, which is pretty trippy since Mac is a huge fan. It’s always a party at Mac’s concerts. On his way in Jordan spotted tons of hot girls outside and ambulances rolling in and out.
