PSST! The mommy 'n me paradigm is under attack. Finally. Maybe the most interesting thing about Elizabeth Badinter's new book Le Conflit, La Femme et La Mère (The Conflict, The Woman and The Mother) is the ruckus it's causing. In stating the obvious—that women have imposed a new  tyranny on themselves through perfectionist childraising—she's drawn wide-ranging contempt. Everyone from conservative Christians to ecologists and ... Read More

How do you teach kids to eat healthy without giving them a weight complex?  Especially when we live in a society in which one-third of kids are overweight but nearly 50 per cent of girls report engaging in some form of disordered eating.  Michelle Obama, warrior princess against childhood obesity, got some heat for disclosing that her daughters' doctor mentioned that their weight was off-balance and for telling the public that she decided to cut down on ...

Kaki King - Junior

BY Kelly McClure in Music

  Have you ever watched a video of Kaki King playing guitar? It's kind of insane. Her fingers move so fast across the strings, and yet she makes it all look so easy breezy. I've spent the majority of my morning today listening to her fifth release, Junior, which Rounder Records released on April 13th, and it's really making me want to take up guitar lessons again. A little more rock than 2008's Dreaming of Revenge, this album opens with "The Betrayer" which ... Read More
Our cover boy Tracy Morgan, was on Jimmy Fallon last night and he was very funny, as usual. They talked about Tracy now being A-List and appearing on the cover of a magazine (ahem), as well as crying on the Oprah show.

Above: Vockah Redu with Energizah and Shortee Whop Critics and fans alike have been itching to hear something new in the Rap genre for years, and New Orleans has stepped up to the plate to deliver. Turns out that Louisiana has been a hip-hop incubator for the past decade; dotingly cultivating a set of grade-A chicks, dudes and chick-dudes. Well, the veritable golden egg has hatched and the artists of Sissy Bounce are shouting out, "I'm ready! And I'm tellin' ... Read More
  If you've never seen this clip before, you need to watch it now. This Fergie Oliver guy makes any Bob Packwood or Bob Barker look like a kitten. Crack all the Catholic priest jokes you want (except that they tend toward little boys), but I'm rooting for the little girls. Check these chicks OUT. They aren't having any of it. Especially (and by this time I hope you've clicked on the clip and disinfected yourself) the one who isn't willing to kiss him even if ... Read More

Oops. I did it again.

BY Lisa Kirchner in Sex

And that time the condom broke. Or I was careless. Or maybe it was something more sinister. Whatever happened last night, help is only as far away as the nearest Internet connection. At this nifty web site, you can simply plug in your ZIP code, and out shoots a list of options  where you can pick up emergency contraception. I even tested it by plugging in obscure ZIP codes from my past, and not-2-late.com dutifully replied with a list of nearby ... Read More
