Nope, not weight training … waist training. Kim Kardashian posted the above Instagram selfie which shows her wearing a contraption similar to a corset but expressly for the purpose of narrowing the waist permanently. It seems Kim doesn’t think her figure is hourglass enough, so she’s going to extreme measures to get results. I find this depressing, but more than anything, I loathe the fact that Kim is promoting this waist-whittling method to her many, many young and impressionable social media followers. Seriously, if Kim Kardashian doesn’t think her waist is thin enough, and this is what she’s doing to make it even skinnier, how many of her fans will be influenced to try it as well? [via Buzzfeed]
Hoo boy. Have you heard that song “God Made Girls” by the country singer RaeLynn? She appeared as Racheal Lynn Woodward on season two of “The Voice” on Blake Shelton’s team. It’s a cheesy feel-good song like “Butterfly Kisses” for the millennial generation with just a pinch of Taylor Swift.
To be completely fair, on a baseline level I’m never going to see eye-to-eye with a Christian song that presumes there exists a God who made men/boys first and then got around to making women/girls (as it is told in the Bible, the first woman, Eve, is made from a rib of the first man, Adam). But hey, it’s a country song. Country songs are all about stories. That’s the premise here.
Even that concession, though, doesn’t improve the message of “God Made Girls,” which appears to be: GEE, IT’S A GOOD THING BOYS HAVE GIRLS AROUND TO MAKE THEM FUNCTIONAL HUMAN BEINGS. Keep reading »
This week, the site Comic Book Resources got an exclusive look at the covers for some upcoming comics, including Spider-Woman #1. It’s very cool of course (see one of the covers after the jump), but one of the variant covers released by Marvel (above left) is a real head-scratcher. You can see how Spider-Woman is crouching, presumably right after she climbed up a wall, with her rather-emphasized ass up in the air. Similar photos of crouching Spider-Man that I found online — the one above, as well as the one tweeted here — are not quite the same. Keep reading »
Apparently, I’m not alone in wishing Jared Leto would ditch that beard of his, and Jimmy Fallon was all too happy to offer a surprise shave to Leto during his “Tonight Show” interview. The horror in Jared’s eyes when Jimmy pulls out a razor isn’t enough to save him from a trim, whether he wants one or not. I only wish he’d gotten rid of the entire thing! [Fashionista]
