Justin Bieber has spewed some hocus pocus nonsense about not knowing that Bette Midler’s our hero and everything we wish we could be, saying he doesn’t even know who the First Wives Club actress is at all.
She was brought up in a recent interview with Billboard magazine, where the 21-year-old claimed he doesn’t even know who this 69-year-old woman is after she tweeted about his personal life. “This Britt Meddler. I don’t even know who that is, honestly,” he said. (more…)
We all know school can be a playground for sexism. Social pressures, objectification and misogynist language are strong both in and out of the classroom, but, in 2015 as we’re all moving forward and tackling the issue of gender inequality head-first, it’s the perfect time to educate students on these matters. And it’s happening, with Victorian high school students now able to add Feminism to their timetable alongside Maths and English thanks to a new-and-improved modern-day curriculum.
It all began back in 2013, when Fitzroy High teacher Briony O’Keeffe and a group of her students formed their own feminist collective, dubbed Fightback. It originated as a chilled lunchtime get-together where they could discuss and vent about situations they had to deal with within the corridors. (more…)
While Jessica’s rep ambiguously said she faced issues with “clothing and preparation”, a widely believed explanation was that the singer refused to wear shoes by the race’s official sponsor, Myer, thanks to suggestions by 2GB radio’s Alan Jones.
After a public apology by Jessica on Facebook, which still neglected to address the wardrobe rumours, the Australian Idol alum has opened up to The Daily Telegraph about what really happened on the day. A panic attack. (more…)
Our Instagram feeds will never be the same. The creator of @SocalityBarbie, Portland-based photographer Darby Cisneros, has revealed her true identity and announced that she’s shutting down the account.
A brilliant satire of today’s Instagram culture, Socality Barbie posted carefully curated photos alongside witty captions. The account became so popular that Cisneros was offered money for product placements and even free airfare to Iceland, which she politely turned down.
Just 22 weeks, 136 pictures and 1.3 million followers later, Socality Barbie’s time has come to an end. At first, we thought she was poking fun at Essena O’neill’s departure from social media (which we have to admit would be hilarious) but alas, Hipster Barbie is really saying goodbye. (more…)
The minimalist approach wasn’t to our liking, however. “She looks good but the pictures are underwhelming. I’m just happy they didn’t over Photoshop her, she’s too beautiful for that,” said KateTheGreatest, hitting us off on a slightly positive note.
“She’s a beautiful woman and a charismatic actress, but I usually find her underwhelming, when it comes to fashion imagery. It’s not for lack of natural good looks, but more that she’s not really giving anything to the camera. There’s no spark,” echoed a disappointed tigerrouge. (more…)
We hadn’t seen Angelina Jolie on the cover of a magazine for what felt like YEARS until the actress recently landed the cover of Vogue‘s November issue and now she fronts WSJ. Magazine‘s November edition. For the title’s Innovators Issue, Angie wears a simple black dress by Celine and was captured by Peter Lindbergh for the occasion, resulting in an arresting black and white portrait shot. The recently released cover certainly makes us appreciate Lindbergh’s zero Photoshop aesthetic, as Angie’s effortless beauty leaves us wanting even more.
Members of our forums were left with mixed emotions toward the cover. “Beautiful photo, looks very true to who she is (or seems to be, as I don’t know her personally),” said Thefrenchy right after the cover surfaced.
“Really lovely,” gazebo was quick to add with forum member JessRubik using the words “simple and pretty” to describe the cover.
In agreement over how stunning it turned out was Wolkfolk, raving, “Very beautiful and engaging cover. I love that she’s barely wearing any makeup and still looks gorgeous.”
But not everyone was buying it. “I usually like pics like this but this one is so lifeless,” admitted narcyza.
