Style Stealer: Emily Blunt’s Sneakers And Stripes

I’ve loved Emily Blunt ever since her delightfully bitchy turn as Meryl Streep’s assistant in “The Devil Wears Prada.” Her marriage to John Krasinski has only increased my desire to be her BFF (can you imagine couples game night with those two?!). Emily was recently photographed looking cute and casual while strolling through the airport, and I want to steal her style. You too? Shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »

Earth Day is just around the corner, so in the spirit of recycling (and the start of farmers’ market season!), this weekend seems like the perfect time to dig up an old T-shirt and transform it into an easy-to-pack tote bag. Although I would never defile a Zeppelin t-shirt like they do in the tutorial, there’s no sewing required, and all you need is a pair of scissors and a safety pin. Easy and green? Sign me up!

Tomorrow is the Backstreet Boys’ 20th(!) anniversary. Yep, BSB has been around for two decades, and I have been a die-hard fan for pretty much that entire time. In fact, at one point my deep love for AJ McLean even informed my religious beliefs (I prayed every night for his hand in marriage). It seems like every week a new boy band emerges and then fades into obscurity just as quickly. So what’s the secret to BSB’s longevity? Well, besides being genuinely talented, charismatic, and appreciative of their fans, I’ve put together a list of 10 other reasons they’ve been around so long, illustrated by GIFs, obviously. Up-and-coming boy bands might want to take notes… Keep reading »

In yet another case of a school valuing athletic prowess over student safety and justice, a Michigan high school has just been sued by the National Women’s Law Center for failing to respond to a sexual attack on school grounds–because the perpetrator happened to be a star player on the basketball team.

The chilling story goes like this: in 2010, a female student (Jane Doe) was sexually assaulted in Forest Hills Central High School’s soundproof band room by a well-known member of the boy’s basketball team. Jane reported the attack to a teacher, who alerted the school principal. The principal held a meeting with Jane and her parents, not to offer the school’s help in bringing Jane’s attacker to justice, but to discourage them from pressing charges. Why? To protect the young man’s chances of getting recruited to a top college team, of course! (Because if Steubenville taught us anything, it’s that there’s nothing more important than protecting the promising futures of young rapists.) Keep reading »

First there was the horrific attack at the Boston Marathon, followed closely by news of multiple poison-laced letters sent to Washington, DC. Yesterday, we saw the Senate ignore the pleas of 90 percent of the population and vote to protect the NRA, and last night, we all watched as a fertilizer plant in Texas erupted in a deadly fireball. Even if you were nowhere near the actual disasters, chances are you’ve felt a great deal of fear, sadness, and confusion in recent days. It’s been a rough week, to say the least. The rest of The Frisky staff and I wanted to put together a list of small ways to help us all get through this intense time. Please feel free to add your own tips in the comment section, and here’s to a calmer weekend… Keep reading »

"It don't make me a freak that I brunch 9 times a week!"

A couple weeks ago, Brad Paisley and LL Cool J released their collaboration, “Accidental Racist,” and the whole world cringed. Did the duo have good intentions? Of course. Did their oversimplified take on modern day race relations miss the mark in so many ways? Definitely. One person who was inspired by the song was Stephen Colbert, who decided to write his own politically charged tune “in the hopes of bridging another deep cultural rift in America: the gay marriage divide.” Push play to check out his parody jam called “Oopsie-Daisy Homophobe,” with guest rapper Alan Cumming.
