Watching artist Shantell Martin draw is like witnessing a zen archer in action. Her lines are fluid and decisive. There is lightness to her movement and it is easy to tell that she finds it incredibly satisfying to glide that black ink pen over her pristine white walls. She occasionally hesitates, but there are no mistakes. Last spring Shantell invited me to her Bed-Stuy home as she was beginning to draw on the walls of her bedroom. She actually wrote my ...

"Oh, reeeeally?! But I kind of liked it!" isn't what you'd expect to hear from a pop diva when something goes horribly awry in the middle of a live set, but that's exactly how Marina Diamandis reacted when a pre-recorded track sounded off at the wrong moment and brought the show to a grinding halt.

Our favorite fierce, funny feminist addresses all that ails you   Dear Roseanne, I kept my own name when I got married, but for some reason, even if people know that, they insist on addressing letters to my husband and I as “Mr. and Mrs. John Smith” or “The Smiths,” or referring to me as “Mrs. Smith.” How do I get them to understand that I’m still “Ms. Jane Doe” and not “Mrs. John Smith,” ...
