"Things that cause rape..."
Back in March we learned that the great Amber Rose would be hosting her own up-and-coming Slut Walk. Y’all have watched me go from being somewhat indifferent to/somewhat fascinated by Amber Rose, to being a bona fide fan, and this is one reason why. She’s been taking to Instagram over the last few days to raise funds for the Amber Rose Foundation, which will be helping to sponsor the October 3rd Los Angeles Slut Walk. If you’re in Los Angeles and you believe that rapists—not short skirts, alcohol or flirting—cause rape, you might wanna join her. Click inside for more!

Xena + Gabrielle
Early last week we started hearing about plans for a reboot of the ’90s fantasy series Xena: Warrior Princess which got fans all riled up before actress Lucy Lawless chimed in to say that reboot plans for Xena are still in the “rumor” phase. Since then, there has been no new information about a possible reboot … but this week, there was a mini Xena reunion. Lucy Lawless, Xena, posted a photo on her official Instagram profile from a lunch she had with actress Renee O’Connor who played Xena‘s … friend … Gabrielle. Might the two ladies have gotten together to take about the rumored Xena reboot?! More »
Back in March we learned that model/actress Jaime King named her BFF Taylor Swift as godmother to her then still-incubating baby. Today we learn not only that Jaime gave birth to a beautiful baby boy but we also get to see the precious moment when new godmother Taylor met her godson for the very first time. Leo Thames King-Newman was born back on July 16 but Taylor has been busy touring and feuding in recent weeks so this was her first chance to meet the baby boy. Click below to see two photos shared by Taylor on her official Instagram profile that show the first moments she got to spend with the new love of her life. More »
Featuring host Miley Cyrus
Last week we learned that pop star Miley Cyrus has been tapped to host the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards which will air live on MTV on August 30. Today we get to check out the first promo video released for the VMAs which features Miley in her role as host and as you can see below, it’s pretty much what we expect to see from Miley and MTV. It looks like Miley is going for “ratchet chic” in this first promo video, which made its debut on her official Instagram profile. The promo features plenty of attitude, middle fingers and, of course, Miley‘s tongue. Have a look below at what we can expect with Miley Cyrus as host of the 2015 MTV VMAs. More »
"I felt ashamed. I was embarrassed to be me."
There are many reasons people blame the media for some of the biggest problems impacting the world, but I think the main reason is that the media—all media, really—wields power. Something as simple as an image on the cover of a magazine can speak volumes and can send a strong message about how we should all be feeling. In this way, the media controls a huge aspect of our society’s moral compass. So, putting 35 women on the cover of a magazine—women who were all questioned and called liars at one point—sitting them down in chairs facing the world, and leaving a single empty chair sends a powerful message about the face of rape culture, and gives agencies to those most effected (and to those who still haven’t spoken out, or those victims who are surely still to come).

"Hi Tanners, I'm home"
Back in April we first learned that Netflix officially announced production of a Full House spin-off series titled Fuller House that is set to debut on the streaming network next year. In June, actor John Stamos put the reboot in jeopardy (as well as the lives of other drivers) when he got arrested for drunk driving. A couple of weeks ago, Stamos checked himself into rehab, only to check himself out just under two weeks later. Today, we see the first photos shared by John Stamos on the set of Fuller House. In spite of Stamos’s personal problems, it looks like it’s full steam ahead on production of this Full House spin-off sequel series. More »
The #Fleekage is real
Guys, something tragic happened to me this weekend. I decided to head out to Boston for the weekend, and as I was preparing to leave Friday I realized that the unthinkable had happened—I’d run out of time to get my eyebrows done. It’s fine, I did my hair or whatever… but it just wasn’t the same! So I’m living vicariously through Zendaya‘s Instagram photos and you all must join me. As you click through and weep over the eyebrow fleekage, remember, Zendaya is lovely… and she didn’t wake up like dis. Peep the gallery for more!
"In the case of #curvy, we don't like putting restrictions around a term that..."
This is a story that I simply have not understood, from beginning to end. Here’s why. About a week ago, a dear friend of mine who shall remain nameless introduced me to the Instagram hashtag #EggplantFriday. UM WHAT. I could not believe that it was allowed on Instagram and, in case you were wondering, yes it’s related to penises. Of the eggplant variety. So if actual porn makes its way onto the photo sharing app, why in the world did Instagram ban the hashtag #curvy recently? Representatives claimed it was because of all the “inappropriate content” that came along with it, but that never made a bit of sense to me, nor does this explanation for why they’ve unblocked the word.

NO NO THEY ARE TOO PERFECT NO
So, here is the deal guys. I am single. For reals. And although I am kind of psyched to be so, and have high expectations for the next few years of my life I still suffer from that bitter Single Person Syndrome that occasionally takes hold of me. I only say all of that to say, if you’re also single, you might want to avoid the rest of this post, because there’s kind of nothing worse than two disgustingly attractive human beings like Chanel Iman and Jordan Clarkson laying all over each other, being disgustingly attractive together. But if you can handle it, click inside for more.
