The first time I heard about 24-year-old R&B singer Frank Ocean was in a Childish Gambino (Donald Glover's rap act) lyric: "I wanna suck your breasts and finger-blast to Frank Ocean." It's safe to say that I was introduced to his music as the baby-making kind. But Frank Ocean's debut album that dropped digitally last week and officially on Tuesday is more emotional than sexually charged. It's riddled with confusion and happiness, elation and conflict- an emotional roller coaster that's as musically smooth as a...

When they tell you to dream big, I don’t think they meant boycott the Internet. Because let’s get real: with more than 100 companies under its umbrella, Google has quite the monopoly over the World Wide Web. Not that appeals to reason ever swayed the American Family Association (AFA), a "Christian" group that is currently busy mulling over a Google boycott. So what exactly did the behemoth do to deserve such ire from the far right? Well, earlier this month, it launched a campaign called “Legalize Love.”...

Queen of Versailles follows the lives of the billionaire Siegel family, documenting its journey from riches to rags, but the movie reaches further than the confines of the Siegel's massive home. The affecting film ultimately examines the American Dream, and reveals the outcomes and consequences of blindly chasing success. Originally meant to chronicle the construction of the Siegels' 90,000 square-foot home (the largest house in America) in Florida, the documentary shifts focus when the financial crisis strikes in 2008. The Siegels' personal and professional finances quickly...

I’ll admit it: I squeal at all things cute. With that said, you can probably imagine the sheer excitement I felt when I caught wind of these three fabulous new releases from Momiji. So what exactly is a Momiji doll? Each fabulous resin creation is handpainted with tons of TLC. Turn one upside-down and you’ll find a pull-out card where you can write a personalized message to the doll’s recipient. Or keep it for yourself –it’s difficult not to get addicted (believe me, I know). Designed by...

From not being able to use the word "vagina" on the house floor to taking away funding for Planned Parenthood, it's safe to say there is a war on women's rights waging on in the United States. I hate the term "war on women." It's always seemed too dramatic to me. "Are people dying?" I would question when someone threw the term around. The truth is that they could be. Without the proper resources for prenatal care, safe abortions, or even family planning help, pregnant women...
