Venus

Venus was created by two 30-something year old brothers who wanted a place to showcase and celebrate their love of pop culture from the '80s, '90s, noughties, and (to some extent) now.




What's in a name? Ve-nus is defined by the Romans as "the goddess of love and beauty."

When coming up for a name to encompass all of the things we love, we thought long and hard. Well, maybe not too hard... Actually, it was inspired by the razor brand. The fact that it was also a hit Bananarama song was a plus and thus Venus was born.


(Side note: We're not like mega Bananarama fans which you may have initially thought since our tag line is Pop.Life, but we do like them.)



We love media. Music, TV, movies, books, you name it. For years (probably decades) we've ranked our favorites by tier. It all started way back in 1997 when we became absolutely and positively obsessed with the Spice Girls.



To be considered tier 1, we have to have a connection with the artist and/or band, so much so that our love for them is unconditional. Mostly based on our childhood idols. It's very hard for someone to make it to tier 1...so congratulations to Madonna, Debbie Gibson, Avril Lavigne, Delta Goodrem, Spice Girls, B*Witched, S Club 7 and Steps! What an honor!

Besides our admiration for tier 1 artists, we love countless other musicians, TV shows, movies, and books! We have unique tastes in all forms of media. Some of our favorite TV shows include: Hollyoaks, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, The Tribe, and so many more. We love movies such as: The Addams Family, Hocus Pocus, Now & Then, and The Wizard of Oz. We've also been reading a lot of books lately, mostly young adult fiction/romance/horror. Books that include: the Fear Street series, Sweet Valley High, Cheerleaders, and the 'Janie' series (The Face on the Milk Carton).


We have some more fun stuff coming soon!
Look forward to more battles, reviews, quizzes, maybe even some games and more! So keep checking back and stay connected on all our social media for updates!
