From now on, I am going to seize any opportunity to steal a celeb’s spotlight by posing by ass off while the paparazzi try to get a decent shot. That’s what Kara Dudley did when she followed Taylor Swift out of a store in Manhattan’s Soho neighborhood, Taylor’s BFF Karlie Kloss right behind her. “I didn’t know what they were doing but I decided to strike a pose anyways because how cool is that!” she told the UK’s Daily Mirror. Hilarious! [Mirror]
A new film called “Dear White People” swept accolades at the Sundance Film Festival and is making its way to theaters this fall. To market the comedy, a trailer was released recently that has since been viewed over a million times on YouTube and has also received thousands of comments. I mistakenly read through some of them.
Since I did and was horrified, I wanted to extend a piece of advice to The Frisky readers: cease and desist from writing a comment about the “Dear White People” movie trailer before reading this list. I urge you to do this, not at my behest, but to save yourself from looking like one of the most ignorant, rude and possibly racist individuals to exist in the 21st century.
Without further ado: “15 of the Most Outrageously Stupid Responses To The ‘Dear White People’ Movie Trailer (And Smart Responses To Them).” Keep reading »
That sound you hear is thousands of women making excuses to their husbands/boyfriends/bosses/friends for why they can’t go out tonight, because the first official “Fifty Shades of Grey” trailer has arrived and it needs to be watched over and over again. I have to say, it looks like Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan have done a good job capturing the chemistry between young and innocent Anastasia and pervy control freak Christian … but I remain concerned that the movie won’t be nearly as racy as it should be. There had better be a drawer full of butt plugs in the Red Room Of Pain or I’ll be pissed.
The online dating scene is rough. Sure, it’s a great way to meet people, but we use the term “people” loosely, as some of the individuals we’ve come in contact with still seem to be in their primitive forms. Obviously, first impressions count … but not to these idiots.

Maybe I should be more embarrassed that I’m so excited about this, but for the first time in seven years, Hilary Duff is releasing a new album! Her new single, “Chasing The Sun,” will be released on July 29 along with its music video, and is already available for pre-order. Duff is still at work on the full album, which will come out this fall, and she’s also heading back to TV in the new TVLand series “Younger.” Since making us all fall in love with her as Lizzie McGuire and releasing a slew of pop albums a million years ago, Hilary has gotten married and then separated, had a baby, and even appeared on “Gossip Girl” when the series started to go stale (I totally still watched).

A lot of ink has been spilled about how the proliferation of selfies is a reflection of our culture’s increasing self-absorption and a sign that people are only getting more vain. But taking pictures of yourself regularly doesn’t have to be shallow. For example, meet BeckieO, aka Rebecca Brown, a 21-year-old British woman who took a selfie a day for six-and-a-half years in order to document her struggle with trichotillomania, a disorder that compels her to pull out her own hair strand by strand. Starting in 2007 when she was 14, she amassed over 2,100 selfies, which she then assembled into the video above, in order to show the physical and mental progression of her disorder. The pictures are accompanied by different notes indicating various life moments that occurred during the ups and downs of her disorder, like school exams, new boyfriends and a diagnosis for depression. In some of the photos BeckieO is balding or has very short hair; in others, she wears wigs. There are periods where her hair has been able to grow out a little, before the cycle starts all over again. As BeckieO continues to struggle with trichotillomania, her selfie project goes on too, and she also works as an advocate for others who suffer from the disorder. “Every day is a struggle not to revert back to baldness,” she told the BBC. I admire the bravery it takes to share that struggle — which so many don’t understand — with the world. [Refinery 29]
“I didn’t think you’d want to know.”
This was how my boyfriend of three years told me that he was leaving me for a different girl. A white girl.
As I watched him struggle with what to say, I remembered that I had seen them together around campus before, but had figured it was nothing; a harmless friendship that might be a little flirtatious, but not serious. Standing there on the sidewalk, I slowly began to understand that despite immersing myself in years of stolen glances, goodnight calls and sun-kissed smiles, it was all over. And even more shocking was the realization that he had always known it would have to end. Read more on Your Tango…
Blake Lively sat down with Vogue to answer 73 questions and heartily promote her new lifestyle site Preserve while decorating cupcakes. Things we learned? She identifies most with the male characters on “Sex and the City” (oh how I’d love for her to elaborate on that one), she’s a fan of Alan Watts, and she likes chocolate souffle. We also now know that her hubby Ryan Reynolds refers to their kitchen as “The Blakery,” and that she isn’t sure that people still go to Starbucks these days. Yes Blake, they do. [Vogue]
