Gabrielle Union Weighs In On Rihanna’s “Man Down”

Rihanna‘s video for “Man Down,” in which she plays a character who guns down her rapist, has been super controversial. I’ve seen so many opinions on it—from those who say violence is not condoned ever to those who sympathize with the plot. Today, actress Gabrielle Union weighed in on the video via Twitter. And she has an interesting perspective being that she is a rape survivor—when she was 19 and working at a shoe store, the store was robbed and she was attacked. Her attacker turned himself in and got 33 years in prison. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: Flirting Over Social Media? That’s Micro-Infidelity

As I’ve watched the Weinergate scandal unfold over the past few days, I’ve related to the particulars in a discomforting way. Six months, I also found myself with a partner who flirted with a woman (at least, one woman that I know of) over the Internet. The unfaithfulness on my ex-boyfriend’s part — or his micro-infidelity, as I’ve come to think of it — is an indubitable reason why our relationship tanked. Although Rep. Anthony Weiner’s transgressions over Facebook and Twitter far exceed the ways my ex-boyfriend violated my trust, I nevertheless feel some woman-to-woman solidarity with Weiner’s wife, State Department aide Huma Abedin. She, too, is likely wondering where on the relativity scale — from Arnold Schwarzenegger’s hidden love child(ren) to dick pic tweets — she should classify the way her partner was unfaithful to her.

Real Women Are More Interesting Than Teenagers, Says Vogue Editor

“When they changed from the supermodel to the skinny girl, I remember Eva Herzigova was not working, and Cindy Crawford, all these girls they were working less and less. And I remember at an Hermès show a few seasons ago, they put on the runway with these young teenager girls Naomi [Campbell] and Stephanie Seymour, and they look almost big if you compare them [with the other models]. But they were looking so beautiful because they look like women. We are used to seeing teenagers — 14, 15, 17, 18 years old — they are not able to use their bodies and their bodies are still not shaped. I don’t know why it became a prototype of a beauty, like Twiggy in the sixties or Veruschka. But you realize the women with the bodies are much more interesting than teenagers.”

Marriage Pretty Much Blows, According To A New Book

In case you were considering getting hitched at some point in your life, a new book by historian, Pamela Haag, wants to remind you that the reality of marriage ain’t so pretty. Marriage Confidential, which explores modern marriage through research, surveys, and first person accounts, found that more than 30 percent of people wish they never took the plunge at all and that more than half of married folks want to have an affair. According to Haag, technology, work stress, parenthood, and the shifting roles of men and women are changing what marriage looks like for most of us and it’s not looking so hot. This is very encouraging information for the single among us. It makes me feel more motivated than ever to run out and find a mate. If “the semihappy marriage” — the most promising amongst the five kinds of modern marriages Haag profiles– is the best I have to look forward to, I think I’ll pass. Marrieds out there, please chime in. Give me hope. Are you more than semihappy? [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »

6 Times I’ve Cried In The Dressing Room And Why

I’m not big on crying in public, I swear, but dressing rooms are a different story. Maybe it’s the sting of the harsh lighting. Maybe being surrounded by mirrors makes me feel raw and introspective. Maybe I take the phrase “retail therapy” a little too seriously. Whatever the reason, I have something of a history of tearing up on shopping trips. Here are some of my most memorable fitting room cryfests… Keep reading »
