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.

Pamela Anderson & Tommy Lee’s Son Brandon Lee Is 18 And So Fine

To be very clear, I am merely acknowledging the good looks of Pam and Tommy’s eldest son; while Brandon Lee is of legal age, and who knows, maybe the most mature 18-year-old young man to ever walk the face of the Earth (doubtful), actually sexxing him, as a 35-year-old woman, would be gross and weird…

Watch President Obama Read Not-All-That-Mean Tweets About Himself

Obama appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night, and in addition to discussing the recent police shootings in Ferguson, took the opportunity to participate in Kimmel’s “mean tweets” bit. The weird thing about the segment is that the tweets themselves were not all-that-mean — probably because the truly mean things people tweet about Obama are…

Style Guide: Spring’s Hottest Denim Trends

Guys, I am in desperate need of new jeans. I don’t mean that in the “I have 40 pairs of jeans but OMG I just need one more pair or my life won’t be complete!!!” sort of way. I mean it in the “I have a couple pairs of jeans, but I primarily only wear…

An Infographic Guide To “The Bachelor” (Week 10! And Your Next “Bachelorette” Is…)

Well, it turns out, ABC couldn’t decide between “charming, charismatic beauty, Britt” and “Kaitlyn, the gorgeous, fun- loving, warm-hearted, but irreverent firecracker.” (Um, Kaitlyn has more adjectives, doesn’t that count as extra points?) So they decided to do the most patriarchal thing ever: they’re letting the dudes decide. Last night on “After the Final Rose”…

Just Look At My Boyfriend (Ryan Gosling) Dancing In Silver Hammer Pants In This Throwback Video

Look out, Channing Tatum. It’s no “Pony” and he isn’t welding with his thrusting pelvis, but Ryan Gosling sure is showing off some sexxxy moves in this just-unearthed video of a “Ryan & Company” dance recital from the early-’90s. Yes, yes, I know he was 11 years old at the time and it’s probably inappropriate…

“SNL” & Kate McKinnon Flawlessly Spoof Iggy Azalea

Australian accents are among the hardest, I think, English-speaking accents to mimic, but you know what’s even more difficult? Mimicking Iggy Azalea’s Australian-meets-Southern-rapper accent — but current “SNL” queen Kate McKinnon nailed it on Saturday’s episode, in which she and Sasheer Zamata spoofed Iggy and Azealia Banks’ feud. SO hip-hop, mate.

Salvation Army Uses “The Dress” To Send A Message About Domestic Violence Against Women

“The Dress” — I’m still seeing both black and blue and white and gold — is probably the most talked about thing on the internet so far this year, and has thus been spoofed and used in various promotions more times than we can count already. The latest is a PSA from Salvation Army, drawing…

This Menstrual Blood Instagram Is Bloody Great

One of the most interesting things about making the switch from tampons to the menstrual cup — as I did over two years ago — is how much better I actually “get” my period as a result. While I’m not exactly throwing moon cycle parties and painting my face with menses, being a little more…

Baby Goats Need Your Old Winter Sweaters ASAP!

I love goats. And if I’m being honest, I love baby goats even more. And if I’m being really, really honest, I love baby goats in sweaters the very most. And I can only imagine how much I would love a baby goat in a sweater that I once owned. See, my super awesome friend
