This Artist Turned Hateful Tweets About Caitlyn Jenner Into Beautiful Artwork

Since coming out, the support behind Caitlyn Jenner has been enormous, but there are those Internet trolls who aren’t comfortable with the way she chooses to live, even though her decisions have no effect on their lives. There have been some bigoted, negative sentiments towards Caitlyn expressed on Twitter and one artist found a way to take those tweets and turn them into something positive.

Conor Collins has compiled the most hateful tweets and turned them into a drawing inspired by Jenner’s Annie Leibovitz-shot cover for Vanity Fair. Caitlyn herself got wind of the piece and tweeted it to her 2.85 million followers.

The artist told Dazed that he was compelled to create the work when he saw all the horrible things people were saying about a woman they don’t know personally. “When I saw them I wanted to share them, because it is a reality of what trans people experience every day. I didn’t want to hide the darkness and persecution they face in my art piece. It just wouldn’t be fair.”

It’s always heartening to see someone take a bad situation and turn it into something beautiful.

Beyoncé Wasn’t Interviewed for Her Vogue Cover Story

Beyoncé fans were giddy with excitement to hear their dear queen bee was chosen to cover Vogue‘s September issue. It’s an honor any model or celebrity would be thrilled to have, but when you’re Beyoncé and you already have the world’s undying love and devotion, a Vogue cover is just par for the course. And it seems the queen bee is so over being adored, that she wouldn’t even bless the fashion bible with so much as an interview for the story.

You read that right. According to The New York Times, Bey is the first celebrity to appear on the cover in the past five years without submitting to an interview. The accompanying piece on Bey in this month’s issue is a mere think piece about the singer’s star power.

And no, it’s not a snub to Vogue. Beyoncé hasn’t really been directly answering questions for quite some time. “At some imperceptible point around 2013 to 2014, she appears to have stopped giving face-to-face interviews. A member of her team told a reporter in May that despite numerous appearances, she had not answered a direct question in more than a year,” the Times says. “Her publicist declined to clarify this stance. (When Beyoncé does answer questions, it tends to be in writing or, for TV, taped.)”

It is quite disappointing that fans won’t be able to hear from Beyoncé in this latest issue of Vogue, but it is a testament to her celebrity that she can turn down an interview with the most important fashion magazine in the world and still be its cover girl. That’s a power only Beyoncé could wield, folks.

Sophia Webster is the latest designer to get inspired by Barbie. The peddler of whimsical footwear has teamed up with the iconic doll for a collaboration that (no surprises here) is very pink and very girly.

Webster created the perfect shoe collection for grown-up Barbie fans with deep pockets and hyper-feminine proclivities. On tap, you will find her speech bubble flats with pink straps and the words “Barbie” and “Doll” written in the recognizable Barbie font, slip-on sneakers printed with the Barbie B, a Barbie-fied take on her famous butterfly wing sandals in pink and silver, and more. The shoes (available both for women and girls) are set to hit Webster’s website August 27, but prepare yourself for even more Barbie-related fare from the designer. According to Vogue UK, Webster is coming out with her own limited-edition Barbie Doll, which will be outfitted in a pair of Sophia Webster Riko hi-top glitter sneakers.

There has been so much talk in the media regarding The Bachelor this week, all around whether or not the show is just a hoax. If I received a dollar for every interview where I was asked if Heather is a paid actress or if Sarah left her boyfriend for the show, let’s just say I would be rich!

Moving forward, Emily finally got the single date she was waiting for and by the expression on her face, it looks like she doesn’t give a shit — well that is what the other ladies think anyway!

I see Emily as a little more reserved, perhaps more mature than the others. I kind of like how she doesn’t go completely gaga over Sam, as it actually comes across as more genuine. (more…)
