, the beautiful Southern belle who Brad Womack
chose in the final episode last season. Well, now the woman of Bentley’s dreams has weighed in on his behavior in a video blog. “I’m not totally convinced that had the ‘Bachelorette’ been me, he wouldn’t have said, ‘Oh, I wish it was Ashley.’ He clearly had an agenda for being on the show and it wasn’t to fall in love,” Emily said. “What goes around, comes around. If I were Bentley, I would certainly be sleeping with one eye open.” True dat. [People

In last night’s episode, the ladies were still on their group vacation in Morocco. which has been filled with drama from beginning to end. But we didn’t see a scene where Ramona “offended an entire country in five seconds,” according to a source.

It’ll be about a year until we get to see Sacha Baron Cohen’s “The Dictator,” which is based on the romance novel written by Saddam Hussein. But today the Huffington Post brings us the first image of Sacha’s newest alter ego. In this flick, Sacha plays a Saddam-esque dictator who travels to New York City when a lookalike goat herder assumes his rule. As the log line for the movie reads, it’s the “heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed.” What do you think—does Sacha look like he could rule a country with an iron fist here? I love that he’s channeled Marge Simpson, both on his head and his chin. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
“I feel like there’s this weird thing that as a feminist band you get put in this role as ambassadors. Certain people are like ‘Oh, here come the Feminazis!’ You end up acting 10 times nicer than you even need to be, to be the opposite of the stereotype like ‘You’re the man haters!’ We’re always bending over backwards being extra nice. And I don’t know if being nice is my legacy. Johanna [Fateman, my Le Tigre bandmate] and I talked about it a lot. Both of us wish that we would have broken out of the mold sometimes and just be jerks more often.”
—Kathleen Hanna of Bikini Kill and Le Tigre on giving interviews as a feminist musician. While I’m not sure I’d ever condone being a “jerk” — the world has enough jerks! — I can also relate to feeling responsible for ‘making feminism look good,’ so to speak. The “feminazi” stereotype is so pervasive that lots of people don’t understand what feminism actually is. Thanks a pantsful, Rush Limbaugh. But proving that we don’t hate men — which is completely untrue, obviously — is a waste of our valuable time and energy. [Spinner] Keep reading »
