Today’s Lady News: “16 & Pregnant” Teen Deterred By Parental Consent Law

  • On last night’s episode of “16 & Pregnant” on MTV, a pregnant teen talked with her mother about how she was deterred by Mississippi’s parental consent law for abortion. It’s confusing why Cleondra and the baby’s father didn’t end up getting the abortion, since Cleondra’s mother says in the clip (watch it on Jezebel) she was 100 percent supportive of her daughter getting one. Maybe they were afraid the baby’s father’s parents would be more angry about getting permission for an abortion than becoming a teen parent? It’s my understanding that only the parent or guardian of the female minor needs to have consent? In any case, it just goes to show how creating barriers for abortion contributes to teen pregnancy. [Jezebel]
  • Speaking of parental consent/notification laws, Sen. John Boozman (R-AR) introduced a bill on Monday that would require all parents of minors seeking an abortion to be notified by mail about it. Sen. Boozman claims a federal parental notification law would protect young women from being abused by sexual predators who may take them to another state to have an abortion if their state has a parental consent/notification law. [Ms. Magazine]
  • Maya Moore, 22, a UCONN basketball player and number one WNBC draft pick, has been the first woman signed to Nike’s Jordan Brand, joining the likes of Derek Jeter and Carmelo Anthony. Congratulations! [The Grio]

Taylor Swift Dispenses Some Seriously Good Love Advice

“There are no rules when it comes to love. I just try to let love surprise me because you never know who you’re going to fall in love with. You never know who’s going to come into your life—and for me, when I picture the person I want to end up with, I don’t think about what their career is, or what they look like. I picture the feeling I get when I’m with them … I’m really a daydreamer and a hopeful person. When it comes to ‘happily ever after,’ I always have a tendency to write a happy ending to my songs.”

Taylor Swift delivers some wise-beyond-her-21-years advice about love. All I have to say is—amen, sister, amen. But for the record, when I picture the person Taylor ends up with, he does have the hair of Joe Jonas, the abs of Taylor Lautner, the eyes of Jake Gyllenhaal, and the voice of John Mayer. Taylor kinda deserves it. [In Style] Keep reading »

Our Favorite Looks From Madewell’s Fall 2011 Lookbook

madewell lookbook main jpg
I know it’s difficult to even think about fall right now, but fashion designers have already moved way past summer and are on to designing their fall and winter collections. We took a peak at Madewell’s looks for Fall 2011 and were, to be honest, less than thrilled. Many of the outfits featured 3/4-length skirts — falling somewhere in the middle of the calf — which are difficult for most women to wear, and the clothes were styled in grunge-lite — not the most flattering look. Still, we did manage to find quite a few looks we loved. In the interest of positivity, keep clickin’ to check those out!

Colin Farrell And Ellen DeGeneres Make Like Vampires In The Bathroom

I love the adorable things Ellen DeGeneres has guests do when they’re on the show. Her latest brilliant idea? (Or at least, her writers’ latest brilliant idea?) While Colin Farrell was on the show to promote his new movie, a remake of the ’80s classic “Fright Night,” she and Colin dressed up in vampire costumes and hid in the studio bathroom, jumping out to terrify studio audience members. Cute. Also adorable—Colin’s reaction to Ellen asking him about playing a vampire. “It’s a novel idea in this day and age,” he joked. “When I heard they were making it, I was kinda like, ‘Oh Hollywood, what a bunch of unoriginal idiots. They’re going to destroy one of my favorite films. But then I read the script and I was like, ‘No. I like it.’” Hey, at least he’s honest. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

All Up In The Upfronts: The Shows We’re Most Excited For, Part 3

Most networks want their own day for their upfront. But others don’t need to be queen for a full 24 hours—thus, Wednesday has become a catch-all day for presentations, which is strange because Friday appears to be wide open. Not only did CBS announce their fall television lineups this morning—TBS and TNT took their turns, too. And not to be left out in the cold, SyFy announced that they’ve picked up a new series, too. After the jump, the shows announced today that have me giddy to press the record button. Keep reading »
