Groupies aren’t usually seen as a positive force for women—the word has never exactly been associated with feminism. But groupies strike me as women who are owning their desires and getting what they want. There have been quite a few famous groupies over the years, but they still aren’t celebrated. And yet, as the fantasy of “Almost Famous” shows, we are intrigued. Here, a celebration of the most famous rock groupies and how they have evolved from the gypsy hippie girls of the 1960s to the pink haired Tumblr princesses of today.

Hilary Duff is pregnant—which is awesome. [My inner-Cathy disagrees! -- Editor] However, her pregnancy might have cost her a plum role in an indie flick. Hilary had been set to play bankrobber Bonnie Parker in “The Story of Bonnie and Clyde,” a re-imagining of the classic outlaw tale. This would have been a big deal, considering that the role was played by heavy-hitter Faye Dunaway in 1967. However, the makers of the new version say they are recasting, suspiciously close to when Hilary announced that she is preggers. A source with the film said, “Hilary won’t be available until next June. If we could wait we would.” Ouch. [Jezebel]
