Dear Young Women On My Subway Car Yesterday,

I remember high school, a small world in which everyone feels like a character in an epic drama.  A place where peers pass judgement and share hearsay as entertainment. Where few consider the appropriateness or repercussions of their conversations. Yesterday, the two of you stood in a New York City subway car and gossiped loudly about a classmate, making the entire subway car uncomfortable, especially as the story was about a teenage girl having sex in a public place. You laughed at her confusion about a possible pregnancy even though a condom was used. You proceeded to tell the intimate details of what she and her partner had done. I won’t share those details because my intention is not to shame the subject of your conversation. And besides, I have no right. Keep reading »

An Open Letter To My Pregnant Friends I Refused To Be Happy For

pregnancy-letter

Dear formerly pregnant friends,

I know this is way, way overdue on my part — but I really owe you an apology for how I reacted when you excitedly told me you were going to be a mom. The minute “I’m pregnant!” came out of your mouth, I saw the look of pure joy and elation on your face. But what did I do instead of sharing in that happiness with you? I immediately started ranting and raving about how much your life was going to change — and not necessarily for the better. Read more on The Stir…

An Open Letter To My Fantasy Girlfriend, CMA Awards Co-Host Carrie Underwood

 

Dear Fantasy Girlfriend Carrie Underwood,

I want to preface this letter by letting you know that I am not a lesbian, nor do I plan on experimenting with women any time soon. With that said, I would certainly not kick you out of bed. In fact, you’re up there on the “People I’d Gladly Do If They Let Me” list with Paul Walker, Ryan Gosling and Tim McGraw.

While I was watching/sleeping through the CMA Awards last night, I was literally mesmerized by your legs. They’re perfectly toned, bronzed and otherworldly. For a moment, I thought I put my TV on mute, but it was just me—entranced by your limbs. You’ve had killer gams for a long time, but unfortunately, the trainwreck that was the 2013 CMAs, drew even more attention to the only appealing facet of the show other than Luke Bryan: your legs.

And since you exercised the shit out of those bad boys last night, perhaps you should take a seat because this might sting a bit. Here it goes … you sucked. Keep reading »

Sinead O’Connor Pens Fifth Open Letter To Miley Cyrus Demanding Apology

  • Sinead O’Connor isn’t giving up until she gets an apology out of Miley Cyrus for poking fun at her mental health issues. Miley responded to Sinead’s first open letter by dismissively comparing the singer to Amanda Bynes. Sinead’s latest letter implores the pop singer to “apologise [sic] for the mocking of any person who sought help, publicly or privately, to prevent themselves from committing suicide.” I would personally like to see Miley respond in some sort of thoughtful way to this at least, even if she thinks everything else Sinead has said is garbage. [E! Online, SineadOConnor.com]
  • Paul McCartney, meanwhile, is the latest old fogey to share his thoughts on Miley’s performance at the VMAs, saying, “I think it was only mildly shocking … it wasn’t explicit at all.” [Rolling Stone]
  • Meanwhile, Sufjan Stevens’ negging assessment of Miley Cyrus’s grammar may have a few issues of its own. [VICE]
  • Ooh, Susan Sarandon and daughter Eva Amurri are set to play mother-daughter in a TV pilot called “Growing Ivy.” [NYMag.com]
  • OMG, Prince George’s godparents are going to be commoners?! [Newser] Keep reading »

Sufjan Stevens Pens His Own Open Letter To Miley Cyrus

But don’t worry! It’s not because he’s worried about her prostituting herself, or that she’s using Black women and little people as props in her act, or that she’s not practicing proper tongue hygiene. No, the singer-songwriter is concerned about Miley’s grammar:

Dear Miley.

I can’t stop listening to #GetItRight (great song, great message, great body), but maybe you need a quick grammar lesson. One particular line causes concern: ‘I been laying in this bed all night long.’ Miley, technically speaking, you’ve been LYING, not LAYING, an irregular verb form that should only be used when there’s an object, i.e. ‘I been laying my tired booty on this bed all night long.’ Keep reading »

Miley Cyrus opened a can of worms when she told Rolling Stone that her “Wrecking Ball” video was inspired by the Sinead O’Connor classic, “Nothing Compares 2 U.” Naturally, this inspired the outspoken singer to pen a thousand-word missive to Miley and post it on her website. In true O’Connor fashion, her open letter cuts both ways — poignant and well, a little crazy. Some excerpts after the jump. Keep reading »
