Just last month, 14-year-old Julia Bluhm was invited to Seventeen magazine’s HQ, where she met with editor-in-chief Anne Shoket and presented her petition asking the magazine to run just one non-photoshopped spread per issue.

Our lovely Emily Rems, joined by Entertainment Weekly editor-in-large Ken Tucker and Queen biographer Mark Blake debate whether Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" is ingenious… or just indulgent on NPR's Soundcheck Smackdown.
I personally think this song is inspirational, beautiful, the perfect song to wail along with while vaguely intoxicated on public transportation, (when you don't care that people are staring atchoo.) If it's good enough for Garth ... Read More
