Amelia McDonell-Parry -

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.

Oh Noes, Someone Defaced Bill Cosby’s Star On The Walk Of Fame

It's a little hard to read, but it says "RAPIST." Luckily for Cosby, the folks who take care of the Walk of Fame have surely cleaned the graffiti off his star by now. The entertainer's career and reputation, however, remain forever sullied by over 20 allegations of sexual assault and rape.

LeAnn Rimes “Saddened By The Negativity” Of People Protesting

Awww, poor LeAnn Rimes. The singer was, like, super bummed out that all the people protesting the non-indictment of the cop who murdered Eric Garner totally disrupted her performance at Rockefeller Center's tree-lighting ceremony. STFU PLEASE. [Dlisted] The Grammy Award nominees were announced this morning and they are as predictable as ever. […

Make Your Own Menstrual Mashup!

I got my first period when I was 12, right before I turned 13. I, of course, felt like I was the last one. My friends Annie and Sarah both got their periods before me and, I swear, it bonded them in a way that made me insanely jealous. I wanted blood to flow out…

#AliveWhileBlack Is Essential Reading If You Give A Crap About Police Brutality

Yesterday, a grand jury decided not to indict Staten Island NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the choking death of Eric Garner, despite the fact that the death was ruled a homicide and the entire incident was caught on tape. (His final words: "I can't breathe," gasped over and over.) The outrage over thi…

Obsessed: Synth-Pop Chanteuse VÉRITÉ

I was just scrolling through my iTunes music and noticed that in the last year or so, many of the albums I've added to my collection are from female singers, songwriters and bands. (And I'm not talking Pop 40 either, though y'all know Beyonce and Taylor Swift are also on repeat.) BANKS, Betty Who, Jenny…

Definitive Proof That Television Will Never See An Ass Like Jax Teller’s Again

If you think this is going to be anything more than a post full of Charlie Hunnam ass GIFs, you'll be disappointed. As for the rest of you? Bookmark this post because as of next week, when "Sons Of Anarchy"'s final episode airs, TV's best looking backside will be gone for good. Never forget!

Oddly enough, this is also my reaction when I hear an Ariana Grande song. Anyway, have anyone heard from this particular Victoria's Secret Angel since she almost killed America's current fave pop star? Because if I were her, I would be worried. [Photos: Getty Images]…

Reese Witherspoon Warbles Through “Random Phrase Christmas Carols” On “The Tonight Show”

I find the holidays generally pretty depressing, but oddly enough, I LOVE Christmas music. Like, I could listen to it year round. Nothing lifts my spirits like the opening bars of "Jingle Bell Rock" and "Silent Night." Reese Witherspoon is also a fan of Christmas carols, so she agreed to sing "Silent Night" on "The…

Zillow: Where Real Estate And Sexual Harassment Go Hand-In-Hand [Updated]

A lawsuit filed in California court alleges that real estate database Zillow subjects its female employees to an environment of near-constant harassment and "sexual torture," in which women are sexually solicited by their coworkers, ranked based on their breast size and fired for complaining about it. Ugh.

Terry Crews Talks Feminism & Modern Masculinity

"I think the big thing about feminism is that it scares men because, you know—the big deal is that people are scared of being controlled...I want to be clear that feminism is not saying 'women are better than men.' That's not what's going on ... What it is is that we're talking about gender equality,…

U.S. Airways Passenger Forced To Deplane When Her Emotional Support Pig Started Pooping And Howling

Back when I was plotting a move to Los Angeles, one of my biggest concerns was figuring out how I would transport my dog Lucca to the West Coast. I am flat-out opposed to ever putting her in cargo, she's just slightly too big to fit in a carrier that goes underneath the seat and…

Shia LaBeouf Says He Was Raped During His Performance Art Show

Remember earlier this year, when Shia LaBeouf held a silent performance art show called "#IAMSORRY" in Los Angeles? It was pretty much a rip-off of Marina Abramović's "The Artist Is Present," in that visitors got to interact with LaBeouf in, apparently, whatever way they wanted to. And according to an email interview LaBeouf did with…

Watch The First Teaser Trailer For “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”
