Mary J. Blige's new show from Apple Music, The 411 with Mary J. Blige, will premiere with an "intimate conversation" with Hillary Clinton. Following Monday's first presidential debate, Apple Music released two promo videos previewing the interview, which promised both Blige and Clinton "like you've never seen them before." An intimate conversation.@MaryJBlige and @HillaryClinton.#The411 coming September 30 on Apple Music.https://t.co/hbaWqf27NP pic.twitter.
Superstore I ask a lot of things while working in retail. “What are you guys doing tonight?” “Where did you get that handbag?” “How’s the weather?” But today, I should have asked one of my clients, "Would you like me served raw, medium, or well done?" When I clocked in to work today, I became a piece of meat. A body for everyone’s disposal.Tanner, as I’ll call him because he had the glisten of decades of white male privilege, swaggered into the store escaping the blistering street. His too-tight gingham shirt puckered over his belly.
Last night's first presidential debate between Clinton and Trump resembled more of a reality TV show than an intellectual debate. Trump's misogynistic attacks caused a collective eye-rolling and outraged sighs from every feminist watching. It's no surprise, really. Trump is a reality TV star and a sexist pig. He certainly knows how to intimidate women and tries to knock them into their place with his belligerent language. Clinton, however, is no rookie. She hasn't endured 40 years of sexism to shrivel at the hands of an unethical businessman.
Amber Rose — Model, Actor, Designer, and Activist From the outside looking in, people assume Hillary Clinton and I have absolutely nothing in common. But I’m here to set the record straight and let them know why they are dead wrong. Here is my Top 10 List of what I have in common with hopefully our next president: 1. The F Word. We both proudly rep the F word and I am not referring to the one most would assume. Rather, I mean the one that my entire platform is dedicated to: Feminism. 2. Our Boxing Gloves Are On.
John Oliver, America’s favorite news presenter, has come up with the perfect analogy for the way ethical failings tarnish a candidate’s reputation — they’re like raisins in a cookie (of course). And Oliver wants to make it very clear that, in the symbolic cookie that is Hillary Clinton’s would-be presidency, there are maybe a few raisins — but the cookie that is Donald Trump’s potential presidency (shudder) is less a cookie than a nightmarish raisin downpour.
The Rum Diary When the news about Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s divorce popped up on one of my favorite gossip sites, I winced. Not everyone hid the photos behind cut tags, and friends who should have known better kept sharing pictures of her face, or that video, on Facebook. But in all the discussions about her allegations of spousal abuse, all the essays that eloquently explained why we should believe her, there was one thing missing. Power. Or, rather, the discussion of a power imbalance.
Stefanie (Week 45) Giorgia Lupi and Stefanie Posavec, both informational designers, decided to visualize data from their daily lives in the form of hand drawn postcards. At the time, Lupi was living in New York City and Posavec in London. As the pair corresponded for a year, forming a unique relationship based in art and data. These postcards are tiny maps of emotion, and as each artist draws out their life in new clusters and graphs, you see how their creative companionship blossoms.
Dear Total Sorority Move, What should I say to someone I don’t want to fuck who wants to fuck me?I follow you on Twitter — well, I *followed* you on Twitter — and came across your sex post disaster, titled, “50 Ways To Get Out Of Sex For When You Just Don’t Feel Like It.” I scrolled through to discover how I should go about accomplishing the latter.Your informative narrative offered up a number of different options. You told me I could cry, play dead, jump out of a window, wear my period panties, quote Harry Potter during foreplay, or fake amnesia.
Photo by Renate Winter “At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter to me what these critics or do-gooders think about this band because it’s not about them,” G.L.O.S.S. frontwoman, Sadie Switchblade, told me when I interviewed her over the summer. “While it is really great to make some money off of this band, the crux of playing in G.L.O.S.S. is about trying to exist in opposition to all of these elements of the world that would seek to round off our jagged edges and commodify us, to make us digestible and tolerable by the mainstream culture.
