It's a damn shame that women still feel any sort of external pressure to procreate, especially when it's a totally independent decision. Yet, here we have a few dozen paparazzi and interviewers demanding an explanation from twenty-five female celebrities sans children. Zooey Deschanel had us all nodding with her quick rebuttal to the question: “I'm not going to answer that question. I'm not mad at you for asking that question, but I've said it before: I don't ...

Though these days, it's almost difficult to imagine a world B.B. (Before Beyonce...), in honor of a news day so indebted to women who rock, yours truly has trawled the internet for lasting evidence of the power in a live performance. As MTV becomes a fond footnote in music history, as drum machines and auto-tune close in on the once-holy territory of the epic ballad, as Lady Gaga dons meat and Miley rides demolition equipment (I am clearly behind the times...) ...

The Queen of Rock & Roll herself – Stevie Nicks – praised Queen Bey this past Sunday saying, “Beyoncé’s great. She’s got her alter ego [Sasha Fierce], but Beyoncé the girl, the woman, is very sweet and nice and polite. She’s a good role model. She’s not skanky. I’m glad we have her.”
Nicks originally met Beyoncé in 2001 during the recording of the pop anthem and (more ... Read More
