In a matter of hours Meadow Rain Walker’s heartfelt message to fans regarding the death of her father Paul Walker has gone viral. Four hours ago Meadow Walker supposedly wrote, “When I was little he taught me to walk, taught me to smile, and taught me to never give up. I loved him even before I knew what love was. He was my hero. My REAL life hero! He will always be in my heart! It brings tears in my eyes as I write this. You’re gone, but not forgotten! R.I.P Dad!” Read more on Celeb Dirty Laundry…
A couple weeks ago, Rachel posted that teaser image of supermodel Kate Moss on all fours, clad in a Playboy Bunny costume, cotton-ball tail and all. And now the issue itself — the magazine’s 60th anniversary issue — has arrived, with Kate on the cover. Somehow she manages to make even this ridiculous and kinda demeaning ensemble look totally chic. Sigh. See one more (SFW) shot after the jump! [Stylelite] Keep reading »
Oakland, California teenager Sasha Fleischman was the victim of a horrific hate crime last month when another teenager lit hir* skirt on fire as ou* rode home, asleep, on a city bus. The teen suffered second and third degree burns in the attack. Why was Sasha targeted? The teen identifies as agender rather than male or female and is an activist for agender Americans. Sasha has gathered 27,000 online signatures in hopes of capturing President Obama’s attention on the issue. Keep reading »
Meet Emily Graslie, the Chief Curiosity Officer of the Field Museum in Chicago. (Now that’s a job title I’d like to have!) She’s also the host of a YouTube series called The Brain Scoop which investigates cool scientific topics like how octopi have sex and the differences between moths and butterflies. Emily is one of the few women to host a STEM-related (science, technology, engineering, math) YouTube series, which is not entirely surprising, because those industries are all dominated by men.
In Graslie’s most recent Brain Scoop video, Emily asks why that might be. While she personally feels completely supported by her employers and colleagues, she pointed out how there is a larger culture that is unsupportive of women in STEM fields. So she illustrated this in the starkest way possible: by reading sexist comments. Keep reading »
These suspected drug dealers got high. Really high. But the marijuana they allegedly hoped to deliver won’t be getting anyone high. Read more on Huffington Post…
“You’re a virgin?” he breathes. I nod, flushing again. He closes his eyes and looks to be counting to ten. When he opens them again, he’s angry, glaring at me. “Why the fuck didn’t you tell me?”
I don’t know if that’s the scene “Fifty Shades Of Grey” stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are filming, but it is so much more fun to look at photos of them onset and imagine the shitty bits of dialogue coming out of their mouths. Can’t wait for all 90+ minutes to hit theaters! See a few more pics after the jump… [Photos: Fame/Flynet] Keep reading »
I blew my wad on a rental car so I could drive to Pennsylvania with Lucca for the Thanksgiving holiday, which means I am banned — BANNED — from doing any shopping on this Cyber Monday, no matter how good the deals may be. But that doesn’t mean I cannot live vicariously through the rest of you. Here are 15 items I would purchase if I were shopping today, which I am not, I swear, I swear, I swear.
“My relationship with my present wife [his children's former nanny, Ryan Shawhughes] is thrilling to me and I’m committed to it. But neither she nor I know what shape the future will come in. Sexual fidelity can’t be the whole thing you hang your relationship on. If you really love somebody you want them to grow, but you don’t get to define how that happens. They do. People have such a childish view of monogamy and fidelity. ‘He’s cheated so he’s bad, she’s cheated so she’s bad,’ as opposed to a recognition that our species is not monogamous. To act all indignant, that your world has been rocked because your lover wasn’t faithful to you, is a little bit like acting rocked that your hair went grey. Human beings are sexual beings.”
Ethan Hawke is as well known for all those “Before Sunrise” movies as he is for being the guy who let Uma Thurman get away. But as he broadly hints at the magazine Mr. Porter, he didn’t want to be monogamous. That doesn’t make any cheating that may have occurred okay, of course, but I commend him, actually, for being this honest about monogamy and fidelity given how harshly our culture judges nontraditional relationships. (Actress Maria Bello has some similar thoughts, which she wrote about this weekend in the New York Times Modern Love column.) It sounds like 42-year-old Hawke has a more clear-eyed view of what kind of relationship he wants with his new wife. He’s kidding himself, though, if he thinks that being “indignant” about cheating is abnormal. Non-monogamy isn’t about cheating at all. [Mr. Porter via US Weekly] [Image via Getty]
