Perks Of Being A Wallflower
Watch Video

Oh, no, “The Perks Of Being A Wallflower” trailer is actually making me miss high school. (Horrible feeling. Don’t go there! Stop that!) Logan Lerman is cheek-pinchingly adorable as Charlie, the wallflower in question; Emma Watson and Amelia’s barely-legal boyfriend Ezra Miller are his misfit pals, Sam and Patrick. Paul Rudd co-stars as an English teacher who is hotter than should be allowed. The movie’s out September 14th, which gives you plenty of time to read the amazing book on which it is based, written by Stephen Chbosky. If you can handle the teen angst, that is. [MTV]

Miss USA Call Me Maybe
Watch Video

“Call Me Maybe” is catchiest damn song of the summer, so it figures the Miss USA pageant did its very own cover. It is safe to say none of the contestants will take home the prize for lip synching, but there are a couple funny cameos by the hosts Bravo’s Andy Cohen and E!’s Giuliana Rancic. And (ick) Donald Trump, who owns the pageant (likely to scope out new wives).

By the way, Miss Rhode Island Olivia Culpo, a 20-year-old cellist, won the pageant. I’m not sure which one she is in the video … maybe one of the ones in bikinis? [YouTube]

Eyeliner, where have you been all my life? I have enough eyeshadows and eyeshadow palettes to keep me going until 2036. But after an unremarkable experience with a plain brown MAC eyeliner, I gave up on it.

My mistake. While I usually use a kickass BECCA eyeliner, which smudges beautifully and lasts all day, I’m also rather partial to Avon’s Glittersticks Diamonds eyeliners. Their twinkle is subtle, not “Rock Of Ages,” and it’s beyond easy to apply. Just try not to think about how the name sounds like a Care Bear. Keep reading »

Sheryl Sandberg at Harvard
Watch Video

There’s many commencement addresses delivered each year by celebrities, but too few of them are delivered by crazy-successful businesswomen who have us hanging on their every word. Facebook’s COO Sheryl Sandberg delivered the 2012 address at her alma mater, Harvard Business School, this week. “Careers … are not a ladder, they’re a jungle gym,” she told them. ”Move sideways, move down, move on, move off.” Smart, no? You can read the full text on of her speech Huffington Post, too.

WTF Chart: Men Overwhelmingly Quoted In Media About Women’s Rights, Abortion & Birth Control

This is a chart made by the media watchdog group 4thEstate.net about the numbers of women and men quoted in the media in print and on TV on women’s issues. As you can read about in more detail on 4th Estate’s site, regardless of the publication or show, men’s voices still over-represent even when the issue being discussed is women’s rights, abortion, birth control or attacks on Planned Parenthood.

The chart itself requires little explanation. The questions it arises? Those are endless. [4thEstate.net]
