These ‘Consent Condoms’ Are A Fun Reminder That Only Yes Means Yes

These âConsent Condomsâ Are A Fun Reminder That Only Yes Means Yes

Still bummed about that time it looked like Victoria’s Secret was starting a sexual assault prevention campaign by selling underwear emblazoned with glittery consent slogans… and it turned out to be fake? Me too. Luckily, the activist group behind the faux lingerie site has now created a real, tangible product that tries to send the same message. Why say it with just words when you can say it with words and condoms? More »

Leaked Photos Show Lady Gaga Versace Ads Without Photoshop, And OMG She Looks Like An Entirely Different Person

Lady Gaga once stood in front of an audience of magazine editors and berated them for using too much Photoshop on her magazine covers, but lately she’s been accused of demanding that paparazzi Photoshop her jaw and arms thinner in even her candid photos. Now a new set of pictures have leaked, purporting to be images of Lady Gaga’s famous Versace campaign before retouching, and the difference is astounding. More »

Kate Upton Wants To Join The Itty Bitty Titty Committee But It Doesnât Make Me Feel Any Better About My Small Boobs

Kate Upton is on a roll lately for being our new favorite celebrity. Her stories of being a lonely, hard-working teen model are totally endearing, she proved that she can rock “girl hot” as well as “guy hot” with a stunning Bobbi Brown campaign, and she gave creepy internet pervs a full-on legal smackdown when they faked nude pics.

Dove’s Real Beauty Campaign Gets It Wrong Again, So Here’s How They Can Get It Right Next Time

Doveâs Real Beauty Campaign Gets It Wrong Again, So Hereâs How They Can Get It Right Next Time

Yesterday, Dove‘s new “Patches” video debuted, in the vein of their many pandering productions that inform of the revolutionary idea that inner beauty is more important than physical traits. We weren’t particularly impressed, and called them out for the exploitation. While I’ve seen a good amount of gushing coverage, there’s also been significant criticism of this new ad and Dove’s marketing policies in general. But what I find the most interesting in all of this is the question of what does a company have to do to get it right? If this approach is wrong, what’s a better option? More »

Amanda Bynes Is Officially Doing Great, So Maybe It’s Time To Stop Diagnosing Her With Schizophrenia

Amanda Bynes Is Officially Doing Great, So Maybe Itâs Time To Stop Diagnosing Her With Schizophrenia

ast week, I wrote an open letter to Amanda Bynes because I understand, to an extent, what it feels like for everyone around you (and in her case, everyone who’s read the Internet in the past year) to think you’re “crazy.” After having her increasingly troubling behavior mocked, ridiculed and insulted by the media and fellow celebrities alike, it makes a lot of sense that Bynes would want to skip the spotlight for a while to give her more time for recovery. And from what it sounds like in a new interview with her lawyer for People, she’s actually doing really well. More »

Speculation Rises Over Peaches Geldofâs Extreme Juice Cleansing Habits In Relation To Her Death

Confusion, sadness and speculation surround the untimely death of Peaches Geldof, whose body was found yesterday at her home in Wrotham, Kent, a village in England. While the tragedy has been declared “unexplained and sudden,” there was no evidence of drugs in Peaches’ home at the time of her death nor was there a suicide note, leading to a belief that it was due to natural causes. Therefore, all the awful jokes people have made on Twitter should quickly cease (and should never have been made, but the Internet is horrible). More »
