The first teaser for “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1″ debuted at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, further whetting fans’ appetites for the movie’s premiere later this year. Only a minute long and featuring only four words from Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen, the teaser focuses primarily on Plutarch Heavensbee (the late Philip Seymour Hoffman) and President Coin (Julianne Moore), the leader of District 13, discussing whether Katniss is ready to lead a revolution against the Capitol. Watch above!
Leo (July 23-August 22): Let yourself free! Indulge your wildest fantasies and take chances. Despite having security, which is a dubious thing anyway, trade up in your lifestyle. Take a trip on a whim or live out an extravagant dream. Money will play a cost, as well as family yammerings, but when you choose to push the eject seat from all of it, the payout now can be priceless. Dare to do!

Virgo (August 23-September 22): If you see something, say something. This will mean getting into your boo’s face and telling it like it is. Correcting their wrongs will be the bane of your existence now, but it’ll also motivate you to you to dig in your heels even deeper in order to get the validation you deserve. After all, if you’re going to have to put in the work, you’re going to end up with something to show for it.

Batfleck may look like he just came off a major bender in Las Vegas, but “Superman Vs. Batman”‘s female heroine, Wonder Woman, clearly has gotten her beauty rest. Israeli actress Gal Gadot plays the bracelet-ed bad ass in the upcoming film and director Zack Snyder tweeted out this first photo of her in costume during San Diego Comic-Con. Where can I get those boots? [Hypeable]
Considering it’s a post-apocalyptic show about a world overrun by zombies, it’s quite telling that the producers behind “The Walking Dead” say that season five is going to be “much darker.” The cast and crew debuted the upcoming season’s trailer at San Diego Comic-Con — as well as a premiere date of October 12 — saying that the first episode picks up right where season four left off, with the newly reunited group of survivors (minus Carol and Tyreese) facing a possible new enemy at Terminus. Are they cannibals, as has been implied? I guess we’ll have to watch to find out…
Have you ever noticed that when you overdo it in the sun, your skin becomes crazy sensitive? Some of your regular lotions feel like rubbing alcohol or make you feel like you’ve been standing over a deep fryer? My mom swears by egg whites. She will chase you down with raw egg and insist on slathering it all over your face, claiming it will prevent wrinkles. It feels soothing at first, but then it dries into a tight Botox-y mask. Gag. I was sent HydroPeptide soothing serum and I have to admit, it is a delightful, if pricey alternative to putting stinky eggs on your face. Keep reading »
One time, when I was 17, I broke my boyfriend’s penis.
We had been cooped up for days in his mother’s basement which had a kitchenette and a bathroom and a TV, so we saw no reason to leave. This was summer in East LA, so the sounds that floated in our window were of chickens and barking dogs and car alarms. One time, there was a foot chase that we watched cautiously out his bedroom window, the tottering, overweight policeman tripping down the ravine with his flashlight, the person he was chasing already lost in the dark.

This kitten got herself all worked up about this ceramic cat, but she seems to be missing the fact that her new friend is not real! [Tastefully Offensive]
My name is Sophie Leon and I am addicted to online window shopping, which I guess is better than being addicted to just online shopping. I can’t help but open every “New Items!” email and click through every lookbook of the latest fashion porn. Every once in a while, a designer collection catches my eye, but my inner accountant sternly reminds me that my favorite item is out of my price range. I return daily to gaze upon my favorite piece and imagine what it would look like with my current outfit. Months later, if the item goes on sale and I am still obsessing over it, I consider it a sign from the gods. Today, my friends, is one of those days. Keep reading »
This Pantene ad really struck a chord with me. I find myself involuntarily saying “sorry” about a million times a day for things I don’t need to apologize for. What it really communicates is that I somehow feel guilty for taking up space (which I don’t), and I see so many other women do the same. You are not an inconvenience, so don’t feel the need to apologize!
“I don’t want to spend my life thinking about all the impossibilities I face when I wake up in the morning. But the reality is, I’m a woman of color in America. That itself is enough for you to wake up and go, “Oh, f—!” … My balls are pretty big. There’s a confidence that my sisters and I were raised with. After my dad died [in a car accident, when she was nine years old], my mom moved us from Queens back to the Dominican Republic. A very macho sort of place. But my mom raised us to know that we are equal to anyone.”
Zoe Saldana has always struck me as the best kind of interviewee: someone who will sound off openly and honestly and say things that make you want to be her friend. Scratch that, I want both Zoe and Mama Saldana in my corner.
In this interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Zoe also talked about the controversy around her role in a biopic about Nina Simone. Some people, including Frisky contributor Erica Watson, complained that Hollywood whitewashed Nina’s story by casting a lighter-skinned woman of color like Zoe for the role. Nina Simone was a darker-skinned Black woman who was very proud of her Blackness. Here’s what Zoe — who has addressed the controversy before — has to say about that: Keep reading »
