For the first time, Kara Walker and Ari Marcopoulos have collaborated to create an upbeat video for Santigold's song "Banshee" that represents Santigold's inner strength and daily struggles.

Donald Trump has turned over a new leaf and is advocating for acceptance across religion, sexualities, and gender. In a new stage of his campaign, he is calling for a weeding out process for potential immigrants, called “extreme vetting”— that would guarantee that "only those who we expect to flourish in our country and to embrace a tolerant, American society, should be issued visas," according to Cosmopolitan. That's right. Trump is campaigning for tolerance and acceptance. Bigots are no longer welcome.
Helen Mirren in a promotional photo for Prime Suspect VII Recently, an archived interview has resurfaced that by no means has aged well, due to the fact that we now know women are actually humans and not sex objects. The footage from 1975 shows a 30-year-old Helen Mirren being subjected to a slimy late night host, Michael Parkinson, who asked her if the size of her breasts “hinder’s her in your pursuit of the ambition of being a successful actress or serious actress.
