When 16-year-old Lily-Rose Depp came out as sexually fluid on Instagram in August, the Internet was surprised - but her dad wasn’t. Johnny Depp talked about Lily-Rose in a recent interview with the Daily Mail, and it’s kind of adorable how much he had to say about his daughter’s success. Lily-Rose is an up-and-coming actress and model: after appearing in a small role in the Kevin Smith film Tusk, she’ll star in his next movie, Yoga Hosers, out in January 2016, and she has several other films in the works - including one in which she plays Isadora Duncan.

Both pairs are red and feature the slogan “Stop and smell the -" followed by a strategically-placed image of bacon. Read More
Last night, Adele performed "Water Under the Bridge" on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and reminded us one more time why she is music royalty. Listening to her new album 25 on repeat is the norm for me at the moment, so seeing her perform live is an extra special cherry on top of my pumpkin pie.

Imagine living in a country run by a feminist political party. Sounds sweet AF to me. Well Scandinavia, a place I imagine to be a progressive haven, is unsurprisingly leading the way in what The BBC is calling "the feminist political resurgence in Europe." The party, called Feminist Initiative (FI), was founded in Sweden in 2005 and launched in neighboring Norway this past spring.
