Since its beginnings in 2002, the AFROPUNK festival has grown into a a highly anticipated and expertly curated event. This year is no exception.  Last year, we saw acts like Questlove, Danny Brown, Le1f, Death, Trash Talk, and Mykki Blanco take the stage. This year, AFROPUNK will feature “the best assembly of female musical talent since Lilith Fair,” according to a statement from their press release. It’s self-described as “a ... Read More

Amy Poehler's Smart Girls at the Party started off as a web series and is now a whole online community. They have a website, a Facebook page, and a Tumblr. Smart Girls encourages young women to be active in their communities and make a difference in the world. It's an incredible organization, so you can imagine how thrilled I was to get to talk to one of its founders, Meredith Walker. What made you want to start Smart Girls? It came from being up late at night ... Read More
  Today’s been a mishmash of goods and bads, to say the least. Bads: I got my wisdom teeth out and I can’t eat solid food for a few days. Goods: I finally have a medical excuse to sleep, read, drink smoothies, sleep and watch Netflix all day. Very bads: It stings like a beeyotch, and being bedridden during summer vacation is probably the worst fate a free-spirited gal like myself can endure, next to lice during summer vacation (a fate I have also ...

Some weeks back, I found myself at & Lovers in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. The show’s line-up consisted of two openers (Lips and James Tillman) followed by the band Throw Vision. I made my way down there to chat with Throw Vision – a band that hails from Brooklyn and consists of four players: Tiff O who is lead vox and guitar; Taja Cheek on keys, vox, bass, synth, and guitar; Dan Kleederman on lead guitar, bass, and vox,; and Alex Goldberg on ...

Ah, August. It’s that time of year when summer starts winding down, kids scramble to finish (and/or fake) their summer reading reports, and every lifestyle blog ever offers its unsolicited advice to incoming college freshman. My greatest guilty pleasure is scrolling through these posts as if I have no idea how college works or how to prepare for diving headfirst into a cesspool of hormones and questionable decisions.    One of my new favorite ...

So wait a minute, the same girl who stole our hearts at the age of 13 in her performance in Akeelah and the Bee, is the same girl who is wearing my jeans, is the same girl who played Chili in the recent TLC biopic, is the same girl who will be starring as Broadway’s first African-American Cinderella…WHAT! Keke Palmer is starring in Broadway’s production of Cinderella as the latest breakthrough for African-American actors on Broadway. Following ... Read More
The only place that is deemed “socially acceptable” for women to breastfeed is either the confines of their own home or on the squishy sofas in department store bathrooms. But what if there isn’t a fancy chaise lounge to rest your tired new-mother body in the bathroom? Well, there is certainly no place for you in public to breastfeed your baby in peace. HOWEVER, two of my queens Alanis Morisette and Olivia Wilde are taking a stand against the ... Read More
Zoe Saldana was recently a guest on Watch What Happens: Live with Andy Cohen, when a viewer called in and asked (in a very judgmental tone I might add), what Zoe thought of Britney Spear’s show in Vegas, and if she heard her song that was recently released without autotune (which I will not link to because that is irrelevant). And Zoey handled it like the ultimate sweetie-pie homegirl we know she is. If you don’t remember, Zoe, Britney and Taryn ... Read More
For a lot of us, we are just beginning our journey with feminism. I personally didn’t learn the fancy terminology that comes with the movement until my first semester of college. This was also around the time that I started getting involved in feminist activism. When you start realizing that the world isn’t as perfect and safe as you once thought it was, you start to see everything (and everyone) as potentially “problematic.” The hard thing ... Read More
