Iris B commented on First Look: Beyoncé Releases A Music Video For '7/11'

at 9:12AM on Nov 22

I felt that “Ring Off” was a little bit better, but I didn’t fall in love “7/11″ until the video. Damnit.

YAY! This looks so good and it’s the day after my birthday! (I’m also excited because Britt Snow is Tyler Hoechlin’s girlfriend, so I expect to see some cool, red carpet photos – but enough about that.)

I’m not a parent, so I don’t know what half of these students are going through, but when I listen to teachers (who are friends and former high school educators who I still keep in touch with) they gripe about the new standards and how much pressure they’re putting on these kids. Interesting that Willow picked up on it.

Part of why I laughed when we commented on the article, was because it seems like such an act. I recall one of Willow’s earlier interviews, where she behaved like the kid she was (11), and people thoughtlessly made fun of her speech. (I can’t find that interview in question, gah, but I’ll try to later.) They lambasted Will and Jada for not having their child enrolled in traditional education, believing it was shameful for her not to sound as articulate as her parents.

It seems to me that the kids take those criticisms and just go way too far to prove something.

….Uhhh, Lauren’s response was a little much. Anywho, please teach me your Jedi mind-trick on how to stay healthy forever. Or is this another notch of West Coast’s sunshine being way more amazing than East Coast’s? Feel better! <3

You just cannot get people hot and bothered one moment and then take them to church the next. Not right lol.

Iris B commented on Which Celebrities Do You Have A Love/Hate Relationship With?

Azealia Banks. *holds bridge of nose* Right now I’m in the love part of this fan/star relationship, due to her FINALLY releasing her album and it’s pretty good.

But when she goes off on Twitter and doesn’t shut up…ahhhgghhrrzzz. I want to throw something at her. Then hug her. Then throw something AGAIN.

Iris B commented on Salma Hayek Says She's Not A Feminist, Whilst Getting A Women's Equality Award

I think in the case of Salma Hayek, it is important, due to society having such a negative reaction towards the term. If more people understood that it’s not negative, the more it’s accepted. The more it’s accepted, the more it can change society. She also has the wrong definition in mind when it comes to feminism by stating:

“If men were going through the things women are going through today, I would be fighting for them with just as much passion. I believe in equality.” For Salma to say that, well, she’s not totally well-versed in the terminology. That’s exactly what it is, point blank. Equality = feminism. Feminism = equality. For all.

Shying away from the term is disappointing (a lot for me, but I understand where you are coming from about labels), especially because she does a lot of great work for women’s rights.
*gets off soapbox*

*Smacks forehead* Oh, girl. While I understand WHY people shy away from the term “feminist”, just one look in the dictionary could clear all of this up. I am sure of it.

Yes, I know, society’s influence on the term being a bad thing…blah blah blah, but it makes everyone sound so silly when they’re fighting the same fight.
