The “Tata Top” Bikini Brings Us One Step Closer To Nipple Equality

If you’re in favor of #FreeTheNipple, but don’t feel like getting arrested for going topless, we have a solution: The “Tata Top,” a bikini top with nipples printed on the cups.

While men get to prance around with their big, hairy nips enjoying the summer sun, most places require women to cover up and keep their areolas out of sight. In my humble opinion, women, the ones who actually use their nipples for feeding purposes, should be able to show off their breasts like a badge of honor whenever they damn well please. Robyn Graves and Michelle Lytle, two women visiting Chicago from Amsterdam and the co-founders of the Tata Top, agree. When the ladies were traveling in the states, they were forbidden to swim in Lake Michigan in their normal European garb (bottoms, no tops), and they realized that it’s pretty damn ridiculous. On the Tata Top blog, the girls write:

Why can’t girls be topless? If you really think about it, what’s the difference between a man’s nipples and a woman’s? Is it really just the extra breast tissue? …look at this situation as if you were explaining it to an alien who newly arrived on Earth. Explain why women have to cover up their chests, but not men. What reason would you give?

Young Author Cashes In On Her Book That Happens To Have The Same Name As A New Stephen King Novel

A Brooklyn-based author is having a pretty solid week, thanks to Stephen King. Yes, we’re talking about THE Stephen King. Emily Schultz published her debut novel, Joyland, eight years ago, but hasn’t seen much success from it until recently, when literary heavyweight King released a novel with the same name. Now, thanks to all of the nincompoops online who are accidentally purchasing her book instead of his, Schultz has been enjoying the fruits of Mr.King’s labor … and other peoples’ stupidity.

At first, Emily was annoyed that all of the idiots thirsty readers who accidentally bought her book were leaving unkind reviews of her novel on her Amazon reviews page, but she started caring a little bit less once her royalty checks started coming in, which she described as “for me, big.” Because Emily felt guilty about essentially cashing in on someone else’s book, she decided to start a blog documenting how she was spending all of her new money, and whether or not Stephen King would approve of her purchases. GENIUS, I tell you. Keep reading »

Oh My God I Love Your Hair: The French-To-Fishtail Deconstructed Braid

omg-i-love-your-hair-braids

I love my long hair, but I don’t love when it hangs against my face like limp noodles during the humid, summer months. After a quick, much-needed trim, Kelly, a Master Stylist from Hairroin Salon, decided to style my long locks into a french-to-fishtail deconstructed braid to keep me cool and looking chic. She started out by French braiding my hair behind one ear and sweeping the braid to the opposite end of my head, where she finished with a messy, off-center fishtail braid. To hide the elastic holding my braid together, she wrapped small pieces of my hair around the band and used bobby pins to secure it, giving me a pretty, effortless look. In a nutshell, I loved my hair and want her to be my new best friend.

Stop What You’re Doing & Watch These Grown Men In Stilettos Slay Beyoncé’s Choreography

Stop What You're Doing And Watch 3 Grown Men In Stilettos Slay Beyonce Choreography
Prepare To Feel Incredibly Uncoordinated

Holy crapballs, you guys. Up until this very moment, I thought of myself as a semi-coordinated twentysomething with fairly decent, pseudo-sexy dance skills. Then I saw this video, and everything I thought I knew was shattered.

In preparation for the final live show on “Britain’s Got Talent,” the three most freakishly coordinated people on the planet men in the video above completely slayed the dance floor to a medley of Beyoncé songs during their last rehearsal. Yanis Marshall Choreography was kind enough to rub their talent in our faces by giving us a sneak peek of their routine and showing us how much better they can dance in heels than us. Check it out and come to terms with the fact that you will never EVER dance like this. (I, personally, find some comfort in the fact that the guy on the left is, like, a half-count behind.)

Big Screen Breakout Roles: 17 A-Listers & The Movies That Put Them On The Map

Before stars were stars, they had to climb the Hollywood ladder just like everybody else. They starred in small television guest spots and low-budget films to kickstart their careers, but achieved an entirely new level of success once they proved they could cut it in film, too. Jennifer Aniston will always be Rachel Green from “Friends,” and Ryan Gosling just a kid on “The Mickey Mouse Club,” but they went from actors to movie stars once they brought in big bucks at the box office. Click through the gallery to see which flicks gave 17 stars their big breaks on the big screen.

Frisky Rant: Stop Being So Damn Disgusting In The Company Bathroom, Ladies

frisky-rant-stop-being-disgusting-in-bathrooms

I write this to you in the heat of the moment, still disgusted at what I just witnessed in the company ladies room. IT WAS NOT PRETTY. In fact, after slurping down several tall glasses of Long Island Iced Teas during a barbecue yesterday, I was forced to stop at a seedy, highway rest stop McDonald’s to pee, and I’m sad to report that their women’s restroom was cleaner than the one in my office building. But this isn’t just happening in my building. Gag-worthy workplace bathrooms— particularly ladies’ rooms— have become an epidemic. We can all relate. Keep reading »
