Will Justin Bieber Leave His Douchebag Days Behind?

  • Justin Bieber made an appearance on “Ellen” yesterday and later that night, he posted a video to Facebook apologizing for his behavior for the past year and a half, and thanking his fans for their support: “I’m not who I was pretending to be. Why I say I was ‘pretending’ is often we pretend to be something we’re not as a cover up of what we’re truly feeling inside. And there were a lot of feelings going on in there. Just being young and growing up in this business is hard. Just growing up in general is hard.” Okay Biebs, I might give you the benefit of the doubt. [Just Jared]

HONY

A little over a week ago, Brandon Stanton, the photographer behind the blog “Humans Of New York,” posted a photo of a young man named Vidal who cited his school principal, Nadia Lopez, as the most influential person in his life: “When we get in trouble, she doesn’t suspend us. She calls us to her office and explains to us how society was built down around us. And she tells us that each time somebody fails out of school, a new jail cell gets built. And one time she made every student stand up, one at a time, and she told each one of us that we matter.” Vidal lives in a housing project and attends middle school at Mott Hall Bridges Academy in Brownsville, a neighborhood in Brooklyn with one of the highest crime rates in New York City.  Keep reading »

Watch How The “Ideal” Female Body Has Changed Throughout History

Ideal Female Body Types
3,000 Years In The Making!

In this video, BuzzFeed enlists 11 models to give us a look at how female body standards have changed over the course of 3,000 years. Today’s (impossible) beauty standards may seem like they’re here to stay, but they’ve changed in the past and will undoubtedly evolve again. It’s cringey to think of desired body types as trends, though that’s exactly how it’s played out over the years — bodies aren’t sweaters you can replace every season to adapt, they’re what you’re born with! All the more reason to love our bodies just as they are, regardless of what era we live in! [Greatist]

Kenny G Claims Responsibility For Frappuccinos

Smooth jazz aficionado would like you to send him a silent thanks the next time you take a sip of an oh-so-delicious Frappuccino. Many moons ago, when Kenny was at his peak and Starbucks was still in its infancy, his uncle introduced him to the coffee shop’s founder, Howard Schultz. When Kenny laid his eyes on Starbucks, he saw wonder and promise that one day in the near future, Americans would in fact shell out $4.00 for a cup of coffee. He invested in the company and, from the way he tells it, he became pretty chummy with Schultz. Keep reading »
