Born and raised in California, Amelia moved to NYC after graduating from the University of California at Santa Cruz. After toiling away at Interview, Rolling Stone and Maxim magazines, she made the move online and has been basking in the harsh glow of her laptop screen ever since. When she's not spending her days editing and writing (about topics as vast as feminism, Ryan Gosling, "Star Trek," and the latest D-list sex tape), Amelia is buying peonies, hanging with her dog Lucca and dreaming about her next vacation.

TGIF! Here’s Hoping You Don’t Get Stuck In Your Seatbelt This Weekend

I don’t know what Clint, the gentleman above, did to get himself stuck in his seatbelt — did it lock up or is he wearing it incorrectly? hard to say — but I could watch him struggle and complain about the situation for hours. And what the hell does “hydrophobic” mean?

The weather forecast for this Saturday calls for sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-70s, which means I plan on rolling out of bed, pulling on a onesie and making my way to the park with my dog for a day of lazing around. I am supremely low-maintenance on the weekends, so jumpsuits and romper…

Brunette Ryan Gosling: Would Still Hit It, Just Not As Enthusiastically

Baby Goose dyed his hair very, very dark brown for his new role in “The Big Short: Inside The Doomsday Machine,” and I gotta say, my girl boner is only at half mast. Luckily it’s only temporary and I plan on advising him via Twitter to return to his natural blonde ASAP.

Girl Talk: My Ex, Who Didn’t Want Kids, Is Having A Baby And My Feelings Are Complicated

Every relationship has its milestones: first kiss, first fuck, finally saying “I love you,” moving in together, meeting the parents, going on vacation, etc. But every major breakup has its milestones too, often full of either sadness or relief. Moving out of the place you once shared; unfollowing/unfriending on social media; realizing that his birthday passed and for once, you didn’t think about…

Get Excited! Patti Smith Is Releasing A New Memoir, M Train, This Fall

Patti Smith’s memoir, Just Kids, is one of my favorite reads of the last couple of years, so I’m so pumped by the news that she’ll be releasing a followup memoir, called M Train, this fall. According to her publisher Knopf:

There Were Naked Men Aplenty On The “Game Of Thrones” Season 5 Premiere

Last night’s season five premiere of “Game of Thrones” appeared to taken some past criticism to heart and finally evened the male-to-female nudity ratio by giving viewers plenty of naked man ass to ogle. To be honest, I haven’t actually watched the episode yet, as last night I was too busy gripping the ass of the naked…

Watch Ryan Gosling’s Gorgeous Face Fill With Shame As His Phone Goes Off During An Interview

My boyfriend Ryan Gosling is such a gentleman. Unlike most men, he never texts during dinner. In fact, his phone is always upstairs and turned off during mealtime, because he doesn’t want anything to get in the way of hearing about how my day was and what positions I would like to have sex in after we’re done digesting…
