We Should Be Friends

Hollywood

By De & Kate

We first heard Miranda Lambert’s new hit, “We Should Be Friends” a few days ago and quickly got to nodding and thinking, we should be friends! Although, to be honest, we’ve been singing that tune for a while now and would readily jump at any opportunity to put on a pair of old cowboy boots and kick it with her.

While we love any celeb who has managed to keep it real and stay down to earth in the public eye, we especially love these 5 ladies: Continue reading

Turning 27 And Accepting Imperfection In The Public Eye

Lily Collins

By Casey Rose Frank

Lily Collins would not be surprised to hear that her roles in movies like “Mirror, Mirror,” “The Mortal Instruments,” and “Stuck in Love,” have cemented her in my mind as perpetually 18. The actress, who turns 27 today, addresses her young face and the pros and cons of her perpetual youthfulness as just one topic in a collection of essays published last week, “Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me.Continue reading

By Cece Flores

Dolly Parton, a name that evokes mental images of big hair and even bigger bosoms, is a person of far greater substance than her image might suggest. From a limited point of view, Dolly is nothing more than sex on parade. But to the open mind, she’s a vital part of the feminist movement. At this point in history (or herstory) feminism has become a sort of umbrella under which exist many categorizations and variations of the common, universal goal: freedom and equality. I’m sure not everyone will agree but here are some reasons why I think Dolly Parton is an important feminist icon. Continue reading

Pause. Think about your favorite celeb bosses.

Who in Tinseltown has set epic goals, created strides in their own lane, and paved the way for you & others? Oprah Winfrey, Tina Fey, Tyra Banks, Kimora Lee Simmons – these are a few of my faves. These women have a brand all their own and work it for everything. I sit in awe of their words, fashion, and overall boss appeal. When it comes to men, however, no male celeb has fueled my hustle more than a man born Shawn Corey Carter. Continue reading

By Jaclyn Lindsay

Today marks Colin Farrell’s 40th birthday. As a fellow Irish person – and self-confessed fan of his –  I thought it was only fair to pay tribute to him.

The Dublin-born actor has been no stranger to the headlines in the past, with his various addictions to drugs, booze, and women. But in recent years, he has nearly disappeared from gossip columns completely, opting instead for a more private life, all the while, still maintaining his reputation as a respected actor.

A week ago, the hashtag #FreeKesha was trending on Twitter, while dozens of fans with posters displaying the same slogan stood outside a New York courtroom. Since that day when her request for an injunction was denied,  there have literally been dozens of articles, thinkpieces, and open letters published. The Kesha case has touched so many people, and that’s because, at its heart, it is a sad reminder of the world in which we live. Continue reading
