8 Books That Changed Feminism Forever.

'The Second Sex' by Simone de Beauvoir

'The Second Sex' by Simone de Beauvoir

About: Newly translated and unabridged in English for the first time, Simone de Beauvoir’s masterwork is a powerful analysis of the Western notion of “woman,” and a groundbreaking exploration of inequality and otherness. This long-awaited new edition reinstates significant portions of the original French text that were cut in the first English translation. Vital and groundbreaking, Beauvoir’s pioneering and impressive text remains as pertinent today as it was sixty years ago, and will continue to provoke and inspire generations of men and women to come.

Lisa Marie Presley's people think her estranged husband is calling the paps on himself

· Sources close to Lisa Marie Presley say the singer believes her estranged husband Michael Lockwood calls paparazzi on himself when he's out with his twin daughters to make him seem like a doting father (which LMP believes is untrue)
· Lisa filed for divorce in June and said she found inappropriate photos on his computer/devices. She asked for sole legal & physical custody; for now, the girls live with their grandmother Priscilla while Lisa deals w/substance abuse problems & Michael gets supervised visits


Do you think celebs call paparazzi on themselves, or is it totally convenient that near-nobodies are papped out & about when they want/need press? 🤔

The author of "Thirteen Reasons Why" defends the show's graphic scenes

Jay Asher, the author of Thirteen Reasons Why, talked to Buzzfeed News in defense of the tv show's "raw and graphic" rape/suicide scenes: "It's uncomfortable, but that's OK. It needs to be... Some people said it was too graphic, but it's a graphic thing. It's like they're saying it's never appropriate to show it. And then if you're saying it's never appropriate to show it, then you're saying it's something to be hidden. If we're doing this, it can't be something that you can look away from or just gloss over in your mind. You have to be uncomfortable when you're watching it; otherwise you're not in her mind. In a way, it's disrespectful if we say, 'We know this stuff is happening, but we don't want to be made uncomfortable by it.'"

Mariah Carey Gives Her Backup Dancer Boyfriend $25,000 A Month To Buy Her Gifts

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

MiMi gives her boyfriend Bryan Tanaka $25,000 a month specifically so he can buy her gifts. Sources claim the pop diva – who is worth around $520 million – is all too aware of the fact her backup dancer beau doesn’t earn nearly as much as she does. Mariah has money to burn and then some and she’s grown accustomed to a certain lifestyle. So why not just find some backup dancer dude whom she can boss around and get everything she wants from and it costs her very little extra overhead rather than chasing some older billionaires who won’t fuck her as good and she doesn’t need the money.

First Production Photo of Anastasia on Broadway Released: The Blue Dress is Back!

Christy Altomare, Derek Kelana and the cast of Anastasia (photo by Matthew Murphy)

The Broadway production of Anastasia has posted the first official look at the show, highlighting the iconic blue opera dress from the 1997 animated Don Bluth film. The blue dress from the film is new for the Broadway production, as when the show opened last year in Hartford Connecticut, Anya wore an original design pale pink dress instead. Many fans spoke out last year about the blue dress being missing, and its addition to the Broadway show is just one of the many changes to 'Anastasia' from its original version in Hartford.

Anastasia is currently in Broadway previews, with the official opening night set for April 24th. Another view of the blue dress and a photo of the pink dress from Hartford below the cut!

Why Riz Ahmed Should Be the First Muslim James Bond

- His performance in City of Tiny Lights shows he has what it takes
- Thinks all the other choices (Hiddleston, Fassbender etc.) are really bland and doesn't think Idris Elba is right for the role given his range, though agrees it would be a refreshing choice
- Thinks Riz would continue to humanize James Bond like Daniel Craig's has
- It would also annoy people and the Internet would go crazy


I mean, he looks good in suits, but even I think it would be weird choice.

The Killers Give Update on Fifth Album, New Music This Summer

The Killers announced that they are nearing completion of their fifth studio album and follow up to 2012's "Battle Born." The band officially began recording the album in September of 2016 and will release new material this summer. Few details have come out over the past few months, and this OP will give a quick summary of what we know so far on #TK5:

The band worked with OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder, reunited with Flood and Alan Moulder, and Jacknife Lee (produced for U2).

Possible Song Titles:
Look Alive
Run For Cover
Tyson VS Douglas

Frontman of The Killers, Brandon Flowers, confirms new material from the album will be debuted at their upcoming British Summer Time headline show at London’s Hyde Park on July 8th 2017. Ronnie Vannucci added that “By then we’ll have some new shit for y’all.”

In other, far less important, "Bye, bitch" news:
The Killers' bassist and flop member Mark Stoeger or whatever answered a twitter Q&A and said he would not partake in many of the upcoming tour dates in support of the fifth album. And nothing of value was lost...

me the day the new single drops.

ONTD, what's your favorite lead single from the band? Are you excited for #TK5?

Episode Still for Riverdale 1x11 "To Riverdale and Back Again"

Collapse )

Betty's stressed the hell out because she seems to be in charge of both Homecoming and Reunion weekend (even though she's just a sophomore, but Riverdale High is weird as fuck). Her mom also wants her to help with the Jason Blossom investigation. When her own daughter turns her down, Alice asks Archie and Veronica to help (lol, good luck with that), but then Betty is pissed off when she finds out.

Meanwhile, Jughead considers giving his dad a second chance because he actually seems to be cleaning up his act. Cheryl and Polly go to Homecoming in Jason's honor (together???) until some twist ruins that. Fred reconsiders finalizing his divorce as he relives his high school days with Molly Ringwald.

The episode won't air until APRIL 27 AKA TWO WEEKS FROM NOW


Also, the writers have officially started writing for season 2! But keep in mind, that the writers strike is supposed to start in early May so uh, get ready for a rough season

Happy Birthday, Kristen Stewart!


Kristen Stewart is 27 as of yesterday, April 9th.

She was in NOLA with Stella Maxwell and they wore matching croptops, though Kristen's showed underboob and Stella's did not.

In other KStew news, she is in a new commercial selling Chanel's newest purse. Very artistic, outsider-y, and edgy of her, as always.

I.D. Airs Part II of "Casey Anthony: An American Murder Mystery"

ID showed part II of their series on the Casey Anthony case tonight.

So what has Casey been up to?

1. She told an AP reporter: "I don’t give a shit about what anyone thinks about me, I never will. I’m okay with myself, I sleep pretty good at night…. I understand the reasons people feel about me. I understand why people have the opinions that they do. I’m still not even certain as I stand here today about what happened.”

2. Obsessed w/ the OJ trial bc she thinks there are a lot of parallels to the cases (yeah, like how you both did it?).
