Twihards are getting a special 10-year anniversary treat from Stephenie Meyer: a gender-swapped version of the original "Twilight" novel. The "Twilight" series, which has sold more than 150 million copies world wide and caused multiple cases of hyperventilation-level fandom, now stars Beau (boy Bella) and Edythe (girl Edward) in Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined. Meyer told Good Morning America that she rewrote the genders of the characters to challenge the "damsel in distress" assumptions made about Bella's character. Read More
Bad Lip Reading is back and as uproarious as ever.  The first time I watched Twilight I was helping out at a birthday party for 13- year- old girl, so I was without a doubt scarred for life. Robert Patterson was ruined forever. Thankfully, Bad Lip Reading came to my rescue.

As the YA genre has risen in popularity in recent years, the number of female protagonists has also grown in both books and film.

I remember having a hard time finding many books with girls as the main characters beyond anything written by Tamora Pierce when I was in middle school. (Not complaining, though. All her characters were kick-ass).  As is with politics, CEOs, and other high-ranking positions, the more female role models the better. Read More
  I’m sure you won’t mind that I’m not reciting this letter out loud to you on YouTube, the way a 14-year-old Twilight fan would. People are so full of feelings about you lately, Kristen Stewart—about your affair, your breakup, your public apology, your reconciliation. I have feelings about you too, but I’ll do my best not to make this weird. I’m sorry that I didn’t have the best impression of you at first, when I caught New Moon on a plane. Read More
