When Sephora sent me their Moonshadow Baked Eye Palette  to test, I was concerned. First of all, there’s lots of sparkles. As much as I love a sparkly highlighter to fake cheekbones in my big ol’ chipmunk cheeks, I stopped wearing glitter on my eyes around, oh, age 17. Sparkly-ness is not something I look for in an eyeshadow. This picture from Sephora.com doesn’t accurately portray just how glittery these shadows are, but trust me, they’re shimmery. 

Second of all, that cobalt blue shadow scared the crap out of me. Keep reading »

Are you ready for a sadz? Taylor Swift released a song she’s contributed to “The Hunger Games” soundtrack. “Safe and Sound” is a lovely, melancholy one. I love Taylor on her own, but the backup vocals from The Civil Wars elevate this song from good to great. What say you? [The Hollywood Reporter] Keep reading »

  • No, Prince William. No, no, no, no, no. Puppies do not make good Christmas gifts. I’m sure Kate Middleton would be happy with some more priceless jewels, not something whose poop she has to clean up after. [New York Post]
  • Jennifer Aniston’s former agent advised her to get some of Brad Pitt’s sperm, even after he left her for Angelina Jolie. [Crushable]

Rihanna channels everybody from Alex in “A Clockwork Orange” to a cane-toting pimp in her new video, “You Da One,” which is all done in black and white.  The song is epically meh — her vocal inflections remind of stuff Gwen Stefani was doing 10 years ago. But at least the outfits are cool. What do you think? Keep reading »

“I do a lot of interviews where people ask, ‘Now that you’re all happy and content are you going to lose your edge?’ Like there’s nothing edgy about being a mom. Which means that as we all become parents, songs are not written for us anymore, and we have to relive our youth to get off on music or something. Where is the music of where you get older? To be content and secure in your personal life doesn’t make you lose your edge so much. For me it almost gives me more fuel to be radical, to be political, to be fighting the good fight because you have something to stand on. When you’re all wrapped up in your personal foibles it’s hard to have any energy for changing the world or whatever. But now I feel more energized because I have that support system behind me.”

It isn’t hard to impress me when it comes to Ani Di Franco. But I want to send this interview with Ani on Bitch‘s web site to every mama that I know. She reminds me of something the iconic feminist Gloria Steinem often says, which is that women grow more feminist with age. I can absolutely see how bringing a child into the world — a daughter, in Ani’s case — gives you that extra push to make it a better place. [Bitch Magazine] Keep reading »
