He’s still acting, with recent appearances on Nashville and Satisfaction, and according to Entertainment Weekly he’s also a model.

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.

“the thing about writing is / i can’t tell if it’s healing / or destroying me,” Rupi Kaur writes in her debut book of poetry, Milk and Honey. It’s a complete poem in its own - one of many micro-poems in the book, shorter than tweets but packed with power. Read More
With 20 million women and 10 million men in the United States suffering from an eating disorder at some point in their lives, it is pretty clear that our culture has an unhealthy relationship with food—even healthy food. Claudia McNeilly published an article in Broadly. on Tuesday, which caused orthorexia to go viral. Compared to clinically recognized anorexia and bulimia, orthorexia, with its almost 20 year history (after being coined by Dr. Steven Bratman in a 1997 essay), is the new kid on the block when it comes to eating disorders.

Australian social media star Essena O’Neill is fed up with the culture of followers and likes that kept her trapped for the majority of her teen years. In her video, “Why I think social media sucks,” posted to Vimeo four days ago, she denounces social media altogether and announces the launch of her new website.  Why I think social media sucks from Essena O'Neill on Vimeo.

  When Solange Knowles posted a photo of her son in Halloween garb, she was met mostly with praise. Julesz posed with impressive steeze for an 11-year-old poise in an LL Cool J costume, leaning against a brick wall in a red track suit and Adidas. “Young Cool J too cool for ghosts and goblins,” she captioned the photo.  While the photo accumulated a deserved several thousand likes, it also inspired one troll to rear it’s head from the depths of the social media-verse. “So cute but at the same time, he ugly,” wrote the troll.

  Yoga practitioners have taken on the stereotype of middle-class, fit, white moms who sling their mats over their shoulder on their way to drop the kids off at school and have a pair of Lululemons for everyday of the week.  As a spiritual practice that began with the Brahmans and Rishis of ancient India, it’s funny how today’s yoga has been turned into another #basic activity. The idea that yoga is for the thin women (and that one eccentric old dude) can make it difficult to go to that introductory class at the gym. Read More
It’s only October 26th, and actor/model Colton Haynes is already killing the costume game. Gender-bending-Abercrombie-babe blowing up my Instagram? Yes please!  In the last week Colton - who acts in Teen Wolf and Arrow - posted pics of himself as Fiona, the fiery ogre princess from Shrek, and the most fabulous villain under the sea, The Little Mermaid's Ursula. I love seeing this chiseled dude flaunting his fem side because Halloween is about having fun and doing you, even if it’s a different you than what you normally do. Read More
I joined Instagram about two years ago and we’ve had our ups and downs – seeing everyone’s filtered life can actually be really difficult by making your own life look so dull in comparison. But the greatest gift Instagram has given me is solidarity with my curly-haired community and aside from friends and family, my feed now consists almost entirely of spectacularly beautiful women (and occasional men!) rocking so many different styles that I almost can’t keep up.

There's no denying that actor, singer, model, and dancer (that's a lot of amazing titles for a 19 -year-old) Zendaya is absolutely stunning. I could stare at her picture all day, and full disclosure, I probably will once I finish writing this. That's why it makes total sense that Zendaya is PISSSSEDDD at Modeliste Magazine for its recent photoshop nonsense.   Had a new shoot come out today and was shocked when I found my 19 year old hips and torso quite manipulated. These are the things that make women self conscious, that create the unrealistic ideals of beauty that we have. Read More
