I've Got Broad(s) in Atlanta
That is the song that will be replaying on my mind as I write this post. An atrocious song (at least in my opinion it is), but it's just so catchy as the song only revolves in one word (lolz). I love how accurate the song is to this post! Change Atlanta to Los Angeles and you'll find yourself right at home.
Anyways, when I was in LA I finally got to visit the ever so famous museum, The Broad. Still particular new (opened late last year), so the crowd was pretty big. A big warning to you all, if you're planning to go and visit this museum, make a reservation beforehand. I didn't do that as the reservation slot for the next few months are full (that's my sister said anyway), so we had to wait in the cold for an hour and a half. It was worth the wait though as the museum is so photogenic!
The art displayed in this museum are all modern art, which to be honest with you I'm not particularly fond of, but hey, I gotta broaden my horizon somehow! Some I absolutely loved, and some I didn't get at all. Pretty bummed that I didn't get to see the Infinity Room because I found out that if you do wanna get into that glorious, glorious room, you have to make a special reservation beforehand. But that's fine as we got to scroll through the main hall for half an hour for free!
When I saw this artwork I saw Joe on it and immediately thought of Joe Sugg, because he's the only Joe I know in my life. Lolz.

I'm a short gal, so as I stood upon this gigantic artwork, I resemble a dwarf. Always a plus for us petite gals, ey? (Not).

I was so excited to see this as the night before, I was binge watching Baby Daddy and found myself scrolling through Chelsea Kane's Instagram. She took a picture next to this artwork because they're basically twins. Both with blonde bobs!
|Michael Jackson and Bubbles / Artist: Jeff Koons / Date: 1988|
This is by far, the coolest piece I saw whilst I was in The Broad. Basically I was obsessed with Michael Jackson when he passed away (so weird, I know), but I listened to his music 24/7 for the next couple of months. The depiction of Michael and his monkey is fantastic. The artist did a great job!
