Kate Moss Called A Pilot A “Basic Bitch” After Being Dragged Off A Plane For Being Drunk

Kate Moss, on some Spraaaaang Break shit, got herself kicked off a plane that was headed back to London from Turkey, after being refused alcohol and causing enough of a disruption to have the pilots call ahead to the police.

Cities That Surprise: Detroit, Michigan

You can take the girl out of Michigan, but I’m not so sure you can ever take the Michigan out of the girl. I never thought this would be the case when I first left home, but the deeper I delve into building a life here on the East Coast, the harder I stubbornly cling to my…

Airline Mistakenly Sends Woman To Barbados Instead Of New York City

Would it really be the worst thing for an airline to accidentally send you to a Caribbean island? If you paid for an entirely different trip and don’t speak the language and thus have no clue where you are, then yes.

Wanderlust: It’s Good To Be Home

When I stepped out of the airport in Trinidad and Tobago, the first thing I noticed was the beautiful, sprawling green mountains that have welcomed me back “home” every time I return to my island of birth. Also familiar? There were Black and Brown people everywhere! That acknowledgement forced a tiny grin to form o…
