Meet Elizabeth Raine, The 27-Year-Old Med Student Auctioning Off Her Virginity

  • A 27-year-old woman going by the name of “Elizabeth Raine” is auctioning off her virginity to help pay for med school … well, kind of. She says money is her motivation, but she doesn’t need the money. Her auction takes place on April 1, so it might be a big joke. [Huffington Post]

Postmodern Jukebox Does A Swingin’ Cover Of Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love”

Postmodern Jukebox Does A Swingin' Cover Of Beyonce's "Drunk In Love"
Beyonce, Big Band-Style!

I know, I know, you’re probably tiring of all the various takes on Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love,” from emojis to Katy B to Kanye’s remix, but I swear, this one is worth it. Scott Bradlee and Postmodern Jukebox, who have become known for expertly covering pop hits in the style of other music genres — Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” as a kinda gothic R&B jam is another recent cover — have taken the Beyonce and Jay Z collab and given it a 1940s, Big Band-style twist. Vocalist Cristina Gatti is seriously incredible. I have a feeling Bey herself would approve. [YouTube]

Appalled Grandmothers Read Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love” Lyrics, I Die Laughing

"Who's Anna Mae? I Think She Wrote A Book..."

You guys, I’m convinced that this video of grandmothers reading Beyonce‘s “Drunk In Love” lyrics is the eighth world wonder.  From their declaration that Bey and Jay “must have a big bath tub,” to questions about modern society (“We never talked when we had sex. What’s all this talking?”), this video is a gem of the rarest kind. While I do disagree with the granny in yellow that this song  ”is a piece of shit,” I can only hope that my best girlfriends and I grow up to be just like this trio of whippersnappers. Sandwiches included.

Don’t get us wrong: we are obsessed with the Beyonce’s latest solo album and have been listening to it on repeat. But that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate a new interpretation of Bey’s amazing (ah-mah-zing) self-titled effort, like this one from YouTube performers Superfruit. The vocally gifted lads covered Beyonce’s whole album in just a few minutes, and I can’t even handle the talent. I might actually like it better than the original album. [Okay, that's blasphemy. -- Amelia] Somebody get these two a record deal! [Time]

Beyonce Leans In, Appears In PSA To Ban The Word “Bossy”

Beyonce Leans In, Appears In PSA To Ban The Word "Bossy"
"I'm not bossy. I'm the boss."

I am decisively “meh” on Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In foundation and its focus on a feminist movement driven by/benefiting capitalism, but I can get behind their latest PSA campaign to ban the word “bossy,” as it’s frequently used to describe and diminish ambitious women. Beyonce is down with it too, appearing in the PSA above (along with Jennifer Garner, Diane von Furstenberg, and Condoleezza Rice, amongst others) in which she states, “I’m not bossy. I’m the boss.” I just decided that Beyonce needs to do a song called “Bossy,” with that line as a lyric. And then it can be added to her soundboardt. Please? [NYMag.com]

Emma Watson Is “Conflicted” About Beyoncé’s Feminist Credentials

“As I was watching [Beyoncé's visual album] I felt very conflicted, I felt her message felt very conflicted in the sense that on the one hand she is putting herself in a category of a feminist, but then the camera, it felt very male, such a male voyeuristic experience of her.”

Emma Watson and Rookie Mag editor Tavi Gevinson had a chat for Wonderland magazine and naturally the subject turned to Beyoncé (because every subject eventually turns to Beyoncé) and feminism. Tavi gave a much longer, well-thought-out response with her opinions about Beyoncé, sexuality and agency, but I tend to agree with how Emma Watson feels here. That is, I generally enjoy Bey’s music but I’m conflicted about her lyrics and some imagery in her videos. It seems to me that Bey sings and presents some problematic stuff in her videos, but everyone just fawns all over her anyway, for being a mega-super-famous superstar who identifies as feminist. (I am also fairly certain this viewpoint might get me fired from The Frisky, as Amelia is Beyonce’s number one fan, as in she wants to wear Bey like a skin suit. If I’m not here Monday, you know what happened.) [NYMag.com via Wonderland]
