Whether we have the internet or real life experience to thank, most human beings are aware of the every day existence of cat callers and subway perverts. Less is said however, about the presence of sexual harassment at events like Comic Con. Often, in preparation for these conventions, super fans will spend months planning insanely amazing, elaborate costumes that perfectly and uniquely embody their favorite characters, movies, TV shows, and comic books (this is ...

Hilary Duff has new music and this is what dreams are made of! While you may have thought her music career was “so yesterday,” in the seven years since she’s produced an album she’s had babies, gotten a divorce and then there was that whole Aaron Carter still loving her thing (oh, brother). She’s been busy, okay?And while her vocals on her new single “Chasing the Sun” sound a bit more like Paris Hilton’s than I can remember, I’m ... Read More

It has been confirmed: menstrual blood is just as magical as you thought. Thanks to this VICE article, you have one more use for your evicted uterine lining (other than cool art) - plant fertilizer! Menstrual blood works to fertilize soil because it “contains three primary plant macronutrients—nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium”; those with green thumbs and a period can now save a few bucks with their blood-water solution instead of dropping tons ...

I’m super excited for school, you guys. Now, before you say anything, hang with me. Not regular school. I’m talking about a free, online school for teenage girls, with classes to promote imagination and creativity, taught by legends like Cat Power and Marina Abramović. A new Kickstarter for something called the School of Doodle is promising just that, and a new platform for girls to create, connect, build confidence and “Be Loud.” ... Read More

This music is straight bangin’, pun intended.
Macy Gray is back with a music video that’s as dusky and devilish as her unmistakable voice, and twice as deadly. The video for “Bang Bang” is Bond-style debauchery at its sexiest with slow motion high-stakes poker, complete with dirty dancing, and some killer call girls in killer lingerie. The new single is off Gray’s upcoming eighth studio album “The Way,” out October ... Read More

If I'm looking at my phone on the subway, I'm doing one of two things – intently reading fanfiction and subsequently missing my stop, or intently reading an MTA map and trying to figure out what stop I just missed. You can usually tell which it is by what my face is doing: intermittently giggling at fandom in-jokes between heaving sighs of angst over when my ship is going to finally admit they're in love for fanfic, OR a perma-bitchface for the MTA ...

If you were not aware that Nicki Minaj is releasing a new single soon, you may be living under a rock. I’m sorry to be the one to tell you. The internet has been buzzing about it for some time now - partly due to the single’s cover art that Minaj posted to Instagram last Thursday.
The notoriously body-unfriendly app has (surprisingly) not taken it down; instead, the photo has been receiving backlash from both insignificant internet haters and ... Read More

Lorde is once again proving that she is as royal as her name (and her Grammy award-winning single) suggest. It’s just been announced that the singer is set to release the lead single, as well as curate the soundtrack, for Mockingjay - Part 1, the first film of the final installment of the Hunger Games trilogy. The 17-year old singer/songwriter commented that compiling the soundtrack and working with all of the artists involved was a challenging ... Read More

On last night's episode of "Sex in the Wild," a 4-part PBS series that investigates the sex lives, mating behaviors, and reproductive systems of a variety of animals, the subject was marsupials. That's right: we learned all about Kangaroo vaginas, Koala penii, and the 4-headed Echidna penis.
But first, a warning: This post (and the show itself) is NSFW: Not Safe for Wussies. If you are easily skeeved out by nature, you might want to move on.

In case you’ve never heard of it, Into the Woods is basically the best musical ever. Literally. It is a work of genius born from the genius of the ever-magnificent Stephen Sondheim and bestowed upon our world as a heavenly gift. Just to be clear, I’ve never actually seen it performed live on Broadway. I have, however, seen a film of its original, 1987 Broadway run (which featured total legend, Bernadette Peters as the witch). ... Read More
