Ummm...whaaaat? You guys! We are way too excited for this year's FYF Fest. The line-up is a sort of mix of the last two years of Coachella (which is fine by us) with some heavy hitters in there, and the VENUE! Personally, the dust at the fest's usual park located venue in Chinatown is NOT our fav, so we were so so happy to see that this year it'll be held at the L.A. Sports Arena. Side tip: check out music act Darkside (a semi-new fav). You won't regret it. Yay! See ya'll there. Psst: tickets on sale Thursday, May 22nd at 12 p.m. PDT right HERE.

On May 14th, Jeremy Penn’s latest art exhibition, "The Gaze, Deconstructing the Moment of Seduction" opened at L’Ermitage Beverly Hills. Penn’s exhibition, inspired by the Parisian 1950s culture, was an engaging and vibrant tribute to the Beverly Hills and Hollywood stimulating culture. The artwork’s colors, lively pinks, yellows, and blues, popped off the wall as Penn deliberately planned for L’Ermitage. The exhibition is one that asks guests to “deconstruct the portal to the inner soul through the eyes of his subject". Even if you missed the opening, you can still check out the exhibition, which runs at the hotel through September 2014. Love the art? Lucky for you, it's available for sale through JL Art Advisory.

She may be used to "shaking it up" on stage, but 17-year-old Zendaya Coleman (or simply, in a Madonna-esque way, Zendaya) has recently taken on a much more fickle beast—the world of fashion. If Miley and Selena Gomez are any indication, Disney darlings can do very well with the big designers as they mature into more lucrative careers and high-fashion Hollywood style, sitting front row at Fashion Week alongside the likes of editorial royalty and certified A-Listers. But with her legions of young fans (her Twitter following is currently over 4 million), the multifaceted starlet is turning into quite the A-Lister herself, having set her stylish sights on everything from theater and dance to music and movies. All that and she even found time to publish a book. And people say teenagers these days are lazy! Click through to meet Zendaya, since it's more than likely you'll be seeing her at a star-studded event near you.
