Welp. There’s no denying it now. Rihanna is officially back together with Chris Brown, less than four years after he assaulted her to the point of hospitalization the night before the 2009 Grammy Awards.

In 2007, Against Me!, a punk rock band from Gainesville, Florida, released a song called “The Ocean.” In his trademark melodic growl, lead singer Tom Gabel sang the following lyrics: “If I could have chosen/I would have been born a woman/My mother once told me she would have named me Laura/I would grow up to be strong and beautiful like her.” In the latest issue of Rolling Stone, Gabel reveals a secret he’s been keeping all his life: he is transgender, and those lyrics were autobiographical.

For a Lady Gaga magazine cover, the image that fronts the upcoming issue of Rolling Stone is pretty simple—there’s no bubbles, machine gun bras, or excessive diamonte. However, Gaga still looks so … strange. It took me a few minutes of staring to figure out what seems so off here, but it finally hit me: Gaga has bleached her eyebrows to match her skin color. To me, this is an argument for how important eyebrows are in framing your face. But what do you think—are you liking the eyebrowless look? Keep reading »
