It’s Hard Out There For A Teen: Boobs, Tribal Feathers, Hipster Glasses Not Allowed!

Cleavage, tribal feathers, hipster glasses — oh my! All of those things have gotten students in trouble at schools around the nation.

You Won’t Believe What RuPaul Wore To Prom

This is a photo of RuPaul and his date at a high school prom in 1983. We're gonna guess that it was his date's prom, not his, as he was born in 1960 (which would make him, you know, 23 here). Even back then, Ru had impeccable taste -- we're loving the boots. And hi…
