Are We Really Surprised That James Franco Has No Space On His Bookshelf For Women Writers?

What Your Bookshelf Says
Ever wondered what your bookshelf says about you? Read More »

James Franco, in addition to being an actor, performance artist, director and avid Instagrammer, is a writer of both fiction and poetry. He’s a big reader too — he’s currently starring on Broadway in “Of Mice and Men” — and one of his many upcoming projects includes a film adaptation of William Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury. In a recent interview with Shelf Awareness, Franco discussed some of the writers from contemporary literature who’ve influenced and had an impact on him, both as a writer and as a person. David Foster Wallace! Cormac McCarthy! Great writers indeed. But of the writers discussed in the interview — including Franco’s Top 11 list of all time faves — not a single one was a woman. (Wait, I lied. Asked to name a book he bought based on the cover alone, Franco offered up Madonna’s Sex. So yeah, let’s not count that one.)

I would sigh, but I am not the slightest bit surprised. Keep reading »

This GIF Of Emma Watson Turning Into Sofia Vergara Is Blowing My Mind

I’m sorry if, like Jessica, you find this GIF “gross and macabre,” but I just had to share it. I mean, I know there’s gotta be some weird crazy Photoshop happening, but whhhhhhaaaaaaaatttt is thissssss? Sofia Vergara taking off her Emma Watson skinsuit? I never thought I would type those words. Anyway, carry on with your day, haunted by this image forevermore. [The Clearly Dope]

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Has No Time For Sexism

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Has No Time For Sexism

“There is sexism – I’m not denying its existence. But I’m saying that I will deny its effort against me. I just pay it no nevermind and say, ‘Get out of my way.’”

“Veep”‘s Julia Louis-Dreyfus is stark naked with the Constitution written across her back on the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone, a shot that happened, she admitted on Twitter, after a few drinks. Inside the mag, the actress talks about her role as the foul-mouthed Vice President Selena Meyer on the hit HBO show, and expressed a Selena-esque, take-no-shit approach to dealing with sexism in her own life. While I totally admire the power in this statement, I would have loved to see her go a little deeper. After all, the privileges associated with money, fame and race certainly make it at least easier for Louis-Dreyfus to pay sexism no mind and refuse to let it have an impact on her career and life. It’s just not quite so simple for women overall to put that attitude into practice. Still, an inspiring and refreshing outlook. [Rolling Stone]

Anne Hathaway Sings Broadway Versions Of Hip-Hop Songs And It’s Not As Insufferable As You Might Imagine

Anne Hathaway Sings Broadway Versions Of Hip-Hop Songs And It's Not As Insufferable As You Might Imagine
Bitch, This Is Not Killing My Vibe!

I’ll be honest. I wanted to hate this so much. First, while I’m not a card-carrying Hathahater, like many, I do find Anne Hathaway’s carefully crafted ladylike-ness to be grating at times. Second, I have pretty much hated musical theater ever since I was a shy teen dodging jazz hands at a performing arts high school. And lastly, hip-hop is my favorite genre of music, so naturally, the idea of prissy jazz hands Anne Hathaway belting out Broadway versions of Snoop’s “Gin and Juice” and Kendrick Lamar’s “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe” on “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” kind of sounded like torture. But … it isn’t? In fact it’s really kind of hilarious and endearing and silly? You win, Hathaway. YOU WIN.

All In Favor Of Christina Hendricks Appearing (And Getting Naked) On “Game Of Thrones”…

  • … say aye! I would love to see more male nudity on “Game of Thrones,” but if we’re going to get even more female nudity, can it please be in the form of Christina Hendricks’ chichis? She’s interested… [The Superficial]
  • Not that I would ever have sex with a sex doll — no judgement if you would! — but I think if did, I would want it to be less … realistic looking than these seriously creepy fellas. [Nerve]
  • Could sex ed be a little more comprehensive? Here’s a list of topics not covered in sex-ed that maybe should have been.. [The Gloss] Keep reading »

Katy Perry Dyed Her Hair “Slime Green” And The Crazy Thing Is I Like It

While I’m totally in favor of people dying their hair weird colors — Nicole Richie’s purple hair is amazing on her and I loved the rose gold hair trend — I usually draw the line at green. Green hair has always just looked like too much time was spent in a heavily chlorinated pool or, I dunno, witchy but not in a cool goth way. So when I saw that Katy Perry had dyed her hair “slime green,” I expected to hate it. But I don’t. In fact, with her dark roots and skin coloring, I think she looks kind of fantastic. I’m not saying everyone should run out to their nearest Hot Topic and ransack the shelf of Manic Panic’s Green Envy … but if you can rock it like Katy, do you, girl. [Instagram]

It Happened In Florida: McDonald’s Customer Strips Down To Her Thong, Goes Apeshit For Soft Serve

It Happened In Florida: McDonald's Customer Strips Down To Her Thong, Goes Apeshit For Soft Serve
Save Yourself A Cup, Lady!

Did you ever read the Ramona Quimby books? One of my favorite stories is when Ramona literally cannot fight the desire to squeeze an entire brand new tube of toothpaste, emptying it in long, satisfying stream into the sink. I wanted — nay, WANT — to do that so bad. The only thing I want to do more is to turn on a soft serve ice cream machine and let it just GO. Just watch that perfectly tubular icy treat just poo out of the machine everywhere. I don’t know why, but it’s a desire that burns deep inside. And like Ramona Quimby before her, this random woman at a McDonald’s lived my dream for me. But first she had a fit for some unexplained reason, stripped down to her thong and destroyed the establishment. Oh, and then she served herself a cup of that ice cream. I’m not sure what her damage is, and I’m sure she’s headed to the clink, but I’d say she’s earned that soft serve. [Dlisted]

Style Stealer: Keri Russell Transitions Into Spring Like A Pro

Style Stealer: Keri Russell

Tis the season to stare at your closet for what seems like eons in the morning because the weather is confusing as hell and you have no idea what to wear. What will take you from frigid drizzle in the morning to balmy and breezy in the late afternoon? The transition between winter and spring can be a real bitch to navigate fashion-wise, but Keri Russell seems to have it figured out with this outfit. Now you can copycat her the next time the forecast has you saying, “Da fuck?” Details on emulating her look at after the jump! Keep reading »

Adam Levine’s Kmart Fashion Line Includes An “Africa” T-Shirt, Jorts With Suspenders & (Sadly) No Baja Hoodies

Adam Levine's Kmart Fashion Line Includes An "Africa" T-Shirt, Jorts With Suspenders & (Sadly) No Baja Hoodies

Well, color me shocked and disappointed. Adam Levine has launched a women’s and men’s fashion line with Kmart and it is full of Coachella- and wallet-friendly items you can basically already purchase from stores like Forever 21 and the Mossimo section at Target. Well, except for that white model’s Africa shirt. That is an Adam Levine signature piece, I assume. Anyway, the relative banal-ness of a fashion line created by Adam Levine is hardly shocking or disappointing. What IS shocking and disappointing, specifically to me, is that Adam did not design an affordably priced, poorly manufactured Baja hoodie for either men or women. Keep reading »
