Chris Rock Says His Saw Movie Has Humor But ‘It’s Not Scary Movie’

The upcoming Chris Rock-produced Saw spin-off will be a horror film with a “sprinkling of humor here and there,” but will not go to a Scary Movie-level of comedy.

IGN’s David Griffin asked Rock at a recent Television Critics Association press event why he wanted to get involved in the Saw franchise. He responded by saying that he thinks even a couple jokes can make a huge difference in a TV show or film.

“A lot of times I go to a movie or I watch a TV show and I go, ‘Wow, you know, two jokes would have made a big difference in that.’” Rock explained. “I love Saw, but I was like ‘wow, it has almost no humor at all.’ So, it seemed like a good place…good fertile ground…by the way, the new Saw, I’ve seen like a rough cut. It’s still Saw…it’s bloody, it’s gory, but there’s like a sprinkling of humor here and there. We’re not revamping it, it’s not Scary Movie, it’s Saw.”

[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2017/10/25/saws-complicated-story-in-5-minutes-sort-of”]

Rock was obviously referencing the 2000 comedy Scary Movie starring Shawn and Marlon Wayans, Anna Faris, and Regina Hall that was a parody of such horror films as Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer.

This untitled Saw spin-off is set to be released in theaters on May 15, 2020, and will be the first new Saw entry since 2017’s Jigsaw.

Rock will also star in the film as a police detective investigating crimes most likely tied to the Jigsaw Killer and Samuel L. Jackson will be playing his father.

[widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”albumSlug=59-movies-to-geek-out-over-in-2020&captions=true”]

We think the “curiosity factor along” of this new Saw film will make it a success at the box office with a potential franchise record debut and domestic take.

Fans of Chris Rock’s work won’t have to wait until May to see him in action, however, as he will also be starring in the fourth season of Fargo which premieres on April 19, 2020.

What It’s Like to Be Black in China

Being black in China is not easy, but it’s not as bad as many would have you think, according to our two guests this week who are both black immigrants currently living in Beijing. Sure, people stare a lot and there are often some inappropriate questions about hair and skin color, but more often than not says Black Lives in China creator Nicole Bonnah, those awkward questions come from a good place — curiosity.

Nicole, originally from the United Kingdom, is a Beijing-based journalist who is embarking on an ambitious documentary film project about daily life for black immigrants living across China. One of the people Nicole interviewed for the film was Tiffany Johnson, an African-American educator also based in Beijing.

Tiffany, like Nicole, said China’s largely homogeneous culture and inexperience in dealing with diversity does lead to some awkward encounters, but she adds that it would be incorrect to label this “racism.” Compared to the United States, where race is a filter for almost everything in society, the Chinese are largely ignorant about issues of race. So when Chinese people say things that would otherwise be off-limits in Africa or the West, Tiffany and Nicole argue that because the intent isn’t the same as it would be if those same words were said in New York, London or Johannesburg, the impact is also different.

Nicole and Tiffany join Eric & Cobus — in the podcast above — to talk about what it’s like to be a black in China.

Coachella’s Man Braids, Face Decals and Dip-Dyed Hair: It’s Time For an Emergency Obsessed or Hot Mess

But between those big hair moments, there were a variety of other celebrity beauty looks require your vote.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Share the Same NSFW Graffiti-Covered – And It’s Causing Controversy

It’s no secret that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West love a twinning couple moment. After all, nothing says “bae belongs to me” quite like swaddling yourself in a beloved piece of clothing stolen out of your S.O.’s wardrobe. And that’s precisely what Mrs. West did yesterday, arriving at LAX in a pair of Yeezy PVC booties and her husband’s controversial, graffiti-scrawled jean jacket.

Kim Kardashian Kanye West jean jacketSplash News (2)



Kim’s airport look was pure 90s rock and ‘roll glam, pairing her husband’s jacket with a black choker, button-up tank, ripped skinny jeans, a Birkin, and of course the aforementioned Yeezy boots the rapper had custom-made for his betrothed. While the reality star looked effortless making her way out of town, especially considering her standard latex attire, the borrowed jacket in question is currently at the center of a bit of artistic controversy.

RELATED VIDEO: North West Steals Kanye’s New York Fashion Show Spotlight

As it turns out, West’s beat-up, scribbled on denim isn’t the product of a late night punk music-fueled DIY session, but rather the work of Australian designer Pauly Bonomelli who has created a number of custom one-off pieces for Kanye, as well as A$ AP Rocky, featuring his signature heavily collaged, graffiti-inspired style.

Instagram Photo

RELATED PHOTOS: 13 Times Kim Kardashian Wore the Exact Same Post-Maternity Outfit

This particular piece is an homage to a real jacket worn by a homeless punk teenager named Tweeky Dave who was immortalized in the photography of Jim Goldberg and featured prominently in his 1995 book, Raised by Wolves. (Are you starting to see why this particular monograph may have caught Kanye’s eye?) The rapper’s jacket isn’t an exact replica, but it does pull a number of lines of text straight from Goldberg’s images of the drug-addled teen, and according to i-D the photographer is not happy about it.

Goldberg, who still owns Dave’s original design, told the magazine, “For the jacket to become sold as fashion — it really put me over the edge. The spirit and intention of Kanye could be right, but the manner in which he is presenting it is wrong. All meaning has been lost. [He’s] forgetting history — not acknowledging where that design came from is wrong.”

Kanye has yet to make an official statement regarding the piece of denim or his artistic appropriation, however, it’s kind of an amazing testament to the fashion influence of Ye that when he wears a jacket emblazoned with “Nazi tweeks rule” and “F— Off and Die” no one even bats an eye.

What do you think of Kim and Kanye’s jean jacket? Would you wear it?

Taylor Swift has brought some unexpected guests on stage during the course of her “1989” tour, but bringing former “Friends” star Lisa Kudrow up to sing “Smelly Cat,” well, that’s just genius.

For her fifth show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Swift and Kudrow sang a simple, but beloved song of a smelly cat, and it was glorious:

Here’s the original: 

For her final LA show, Swift didn’t skimp on the special guests. In addition to Kudrow, the pop star also brought out her BFF Selena Gomez to sing “Good For You,” and Justin Timberlake to sing “Mirrors.”

24 Hours — It’s Not As Long As You Think

2015-08-24-1440446548-9241394-Time.jpg
Image: Amanda Yuill

A few times a year, something magical happens in my world. I find myself in possession of something akin to the Holy Grail — 24 hours without any plans. When I realize that one of these days is on the horizon, it captures my full attention, and I go to extreme lengths to protect it. And then I start to fantasize about all of the wonderful things I’m going to do with this precious, empty day. The adventures I’m going to have, the radical self-care I’m going to partake in, the trombone practice, the photography expedition, and as sad as it is, I’ve even fantasized about using some of these days to finally catch up on work. My expectations start to soar, and more often than not I find myself starting to stress about how I’m going to fit it all in.

I’ve been doing a lot of mindfulness work lately, in particular trying to play the role of “curious observer” to my thoughts and behaviors. It was through this curious observation that I came to a shocking realization this week.

Things take time.

Quite a lot of time, actually. And no matter how much we try to multitask (which is not only counterproductive but may even be damaging to our brains), or use the latest “productivity hack” to expand it, time isn’t going to change to meet the demands of our busy schedule.

It’s no secret that those demands have grown, seemingly exponentially, during our lifetimes. While a lot of progress has been made on the convenience and efficiency fronts, the expectations about what we do with all that saved time have escalated out of control. Some of those expectations we place on each other (we’ve all got our “thing”, and we all want our friends and family to come watch/play/do it with us), but most of them come from within. We expect from ourselves nothing less than the perfect body, perfect relationship, perfect career, perfect home… and the list goes on. But guess what?

Mastery takes time.

10,000 hours of deliberate practice to be exact, according to Malcolm Gladwell in the bestselling book Outliers. And even that won’t get you there if you’re not starting with some key talent or genetic qualities. But let’s consider that for a moment — 10,000 hours. If you were to spend two hours per day of deliberate practice on just one of those things (which is pretty ambitious for most of us), every single day, it would take about 13 years and 8 months to achieve mastery (which is as close to perfection as any of us can hope for).

Knowing this rule of thumb arms us with information to help reshape the expectations we place on ourselves. Namely:

  1. Pick a thing to be the thing you’re really, really good at. Maybe two. But no more than that, because if you do, you’re setting yourself up for failure.
  2. For those one or two things, calculate where you’re at on your journey to mastery using the 10,000 hour rule, and reset your expectations for achieving mastery based on the amount of time you are willing to commit in the future.
  3. For all of the other things you used to aspire to perfection in, create a new expectation that is more realistic based on the amount of time you are willing to commit to it.
  4. Next time you notice yourself stressing about being too busy, look at your schedule objectively and be honest with yourself about where you’re placing expectations on yourself that you could ease up on. If you think everything is being imposed on you by others, think again. We often tell ourselves this to avoid taking responsibility for our own experience.

Incidentally, today was one of those days for me — magically uncluttered by commitments. What did I do? A yoga class, a hike with my dog followed by giving her a bath, some laundry, took a nap, ate delicious, simple, healthy food, and wrote this post. Maybe half of what I had wanted to do. But I’ve been reminding myself all day that time is what it is, and I did the things that were most important to me first. It’s not easy, but I’m starting to accept that time is a more powerful force than I will ever be, and I can spend my life fighting it or get more realistic and work with it.

How would you describe your relationship with time? And how could you improve it? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below.

A Simple Way To Know When It’s OK To Ask A Woman If She’s Pregnant

Mom Carrie Saum was fed up with people assuming her “squishy” belly was a “baby bump,” so she made a helpful video and flowchart to let people know when it’s OK to ask a woman if she’s pregnant.

According to Saum, there are only two scenarios when it’s appropriate: If she tells you she’s pregnant and you respond, “Really? What? You’re pregnant?” or if you’re in the room where she is giving birth and see the baby crowning or witness the C-section taking place.

“The bottom line here is that women’s bodies are not your business,” the mom explains, adding, “If a woman wants you to know, she’ll tell you.”

4 Things to Remember When You Want to Get Married, But It’s Not Happening

Back when I was in my early to mid-20s I was worried and concerned about getting married, but every attempt to create a stable, loving and committed relationship turned into an utter failure.

Based on what I’ve learned, here are four things to remember when you want to get married, but it’s not happening:

#1 — You gotta focus on making yourself happy.

Be your own best friend. Learn how to love your life whether there is a guy in your life or not. The more joyful and loving that you are when alone with yourself, the better because others are going to recognize that energy that you are putting out.

And trust me — being joyful, happy, and loving is a lot more attractive then being depressed, self-conscious, and anxious. Just imagine what it’d be like going on a date with someone who is really depressed, self conscious and anxious. Would you want to go out with them again? Enough said.

#2 — Know that you deserve and are capable of having a loving relationship.

We can be happy and joyful in our lives and with ourselves all we want, but if we don’t think that we deserve and are capable of having a loving and joyful relationship that can turn into a successful marriage then it’s not going to happen. We have to really truly know and believe that we are worthy.

Doing this doesn’t have to be super complicated. It can happen at any given moment that you choose to fully admit to yourself and the universe what it is that you truly desire and you choose to fully know you are worthy. And, as a result, the universe can respond very quickly.

I know this very well from experience. A few years ago I was traveling in Japan after spending several months suffering with the aftermath from a breakup. I was working on being happy by myself but nothing new came along because I didn’t really believe I was ready for a new relationship. I deeply believed that I’d screw any new relationship up. I didn’t trust myself.

While walking around the Golden Pavillion (Kinkai-ju) in Kyoto I saw a section where you could buy candles for various different things and light them for a prayer. These were all in English so I felt inclined to light one. At first I rationalized and started telling myself to do one for world peace, but my eyes kept going back to one that was for finding love.

In that moment, finally admitted to myself and the universe my true desire and I knew that I deserved it. I lit the candle and left — forgetting about it.

Later that day, upon trying to get to the airport, a storm came through that caused me to miss my flight. I ended up meeting a man in this this stressful situation who helped me with language translations. This man I ended up having a stable relationship with for about a year.

Which leads me to my next point…

#3 — Always be open to possibilities.

When we have this very specific picture of what it is that we want then we are not going to be open for all of the creative possibilities. We may overlook or not even allow ourselves to see what is right in front of us.

It’s okay to have some standards of what you want: Like someone who is honest, loyal, caring, and so on. But if we’re going so far as to being very particular about how someone looks, their job, or where they grew up then we may be blocking ourselves from being with who we are truly mean to be with.

Also, I think it’s very important to remember that when I say “be open to possibilities” it’s not about letting go of the desire completely. It’s not about shifting your thoughts in a way to be forcing yourself to be thinking, “I don’t want to get married” because that doesn’t leave you open to the potential of marriage ever. It’s like going up to the universe and saying “I’m closing up shop” and the universe is thinking, “But, wait, I had all these customers lined up for you. What gives?”

The key is to learn how to get into a neutral space of “I am happy and love my life no matter what happens”. It’s about letting go of any concern or worry about the outcome and being open for all creative possibilities. That creates the foundation for a real change (or miracle) to occur, internally and, ultimately, externally.

#4 — Have faith.

Trust that what is going to happen will happen. Not all of us are meant to get married or have children by a certain age. It’s also true that not all of us are meant to only be married once. Things happen — it’s just the way life works out sometimes.

So trust and have faith that what comes to you is what is in your highest good. You have you own individual lessons to learn in this life that is totally unique to you. Nobody else shares those same specific lessons that you need to learn with you. So trust, have faith, and follow the flow of your own intuition and inner guidance.

Take action now!

It’s A ‘One Tree Hill’ Reunion!

No drama here! The “One Tree Hill” cast had a reunion Saturday night and — obviously — took some great pics to prove it. After all, they must know we need something to fill the void left by the show that practically ran our lives from 2003 to 2012.

Sophia Bush, who played Brooke Davis on the teen drama, shared a group photo on Instagram that included her former castmates Bethany Joy Lenz, Daphne Zuniga, Antwon Tanner and Paul Johansson.

Bush also shared a silly picture with her former co-star Bethany Joy Lenz, who played Haley on “One Tree Hill.” Ladies, we’re right there with you:

John Oliver Says It’s Time To End Discrimination Against Gays

John Oliver says it’s time for the federal government to finish the job when it comes to gay rights

Speaking on HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” on Sunday, Oliver pointed out that while gay couples now have the right to get married, they don’t have many other rights in much of the nation.

In some cases, they have no rights at all. 

Now Oliver is calling on the feds to extend basic civil rights protections to the gay community. 

“States have a checkered history when it comes to civil rights,” Oliver said. “Just look at Arkansas right now. Not only do they not have any anti-discrimination ordinances, earlier this year they actually passed an anti-anti-discrimination ordinance that prevents any city or county from extending civil rights protections to gay people.”

As Oliver pointed out, that’s the opposite of progress.

“It would be like if Apple suddenly introduced the iPhone 7 and it was a flip phone,” he said. “That’s still not as dumb as the Apple Watch… but it’s dumb.” 

Check it out in the clip above.

Harry Styles Falls Again Because It’s The Story Of His Life

Reuniting his butt with the floor once again, Harry Styles took another tumble at a concert in Toronto on Thursday.

It’s just the latest chapter in Style’s epic battle against gravity, which seems to have been going on for a while now:

Recently, during a time we assume he wasn’t falling to the seat of his pants, Styles and One Direction released the video for their new single. It’s called “Drag Me Down.”

Yeah, “Drag Me Down.” Has there ever been a more appropriate song title in the history of music?

Doubt it.

The Shocking Truth About Tinder; It’s More Than Just a Hook-Up App!

Have you heard the news? Tinder is causing a ‘Dating Apocalypse.’ That’s right, this simple dating app is causing changes in human mating and dating behavior, the likes of which we’ve never seen before… that is, if you agree with the September Vanity Fair article by Nancy Jo Sales, “Tinder and the Dawn of the ‘Dating Apocalypse.” Not convinced? Browse over to the R.I. Health Department and read their conclusion that Tinder is one cause of the nation-wide rise in STDs. That’s one powerful app, right? Could it be true? Has Tinder forever changed the way people date?

What is Tinder and Why has it become the Focus of Debate?

Tinder is a free, location-based mobile dating app that simplifies the process most dating websites require. You simply download the app to your smart phone, link to your Facebook account, choose up to six photos of yourself, and write a brief bio. That’s it!

Then the game begins. The app shows you photos of singles based on your preferences. You swipe left if you don’t like them and swipe right if you do. If someone you like also swiped right on your photo, the app immediately informs you, “It’s a Match!” and urges you to begin chatting. Beware: Tinder is addictive. But, is it just a hook-up app for the ‘hit-it-and-quit-it’ culture, or is it something more?

The Appeal

If you’ve familiar with online dating, you may wonder what the appeal is, and how you can find someone worth your time given what little information the app gives and requires. But that’s what makes Tinder great. The app is simple, easy on the eye and feels like a game. The objective? To find matches and start conversations. And when you are matched, starting conversations is easier. After all, you know your match is also interested.

Tinder is more efficient because it doesn’t require answering a long series of questions to find the best matches for you. It’s a matter of choosing whether to swipe left or right. Sounds too simple, right? Well, not exactly. The decision-making process involved in using Tinder is both rational and emotional. You’ll rationalize your swiping decision based on age, distance and a short bio (if included). But let’s be honest, it’s all about the photos. Swiping left or right depends on how attractive you find a candidate, and that’s pure emotion.

Tinder Is Only for Hook-Ups.

If you believe the hype and speak to the wrong people, you’ll be convinced that Tinder is just another hook up app. But, dismissing this app would be a mistake, and I can give you 50 million reasons in 196 countries worldwide to convince you. Yes, Tinder is popular and widespread.

Over the past few months, I’ve used Tinder Plus (premium subscription / worldwide) to “informally research” Tinder users (women and men) across a wide age-range (25-50) all over the world. And No, I did not create fake profiles.

What I found? Almost 60 percent of all women who wrote a narrative in their profile included a reference to NOT wanting a hook-up. Here are examples copied from Tinder profiles in the United States:

Not looking for a hook-up, but thanks for the thought . . . Makes me feel all warm ‘n fuzzy, LOL.

NOT HERE FOR A HOOK-UP. KEEP YOUR STDs TO YOURSELF!

Looking 4 a match, not a F*** B****!

Hook-ups, please swipe left. XOXO

So, people are aware of Tinder’s “hook-up” reputation, yet they are still willing to try the application hoping to connect with someone who is also looking for a serious relationship. Are these women hiding their true intentions about hooking-up? I think not.

Can Tinder Lead to a Long-Term Relationship?

There’s plenty of discussion about the “seriousness” of mobile dating apps. In fact, many find them superficial because of how simple they are. Perhaps this adds to the app’s allure and charm. Whatever the case, Tinder is popular and has brought online dating to the masses. People who have considered online dating desperate find it much easier to download the simple app, link to Facebook and swipe away.

Indeed, there are plenty of twenty-somethings who are on Tinder for a quick hook-up. And, if you use it, you’ll probably find a match who swiped right to convince you to hook up with them. But you’ll find just as many interesting, attractive and successful people who are only interested in a committed relationship.

Afraid of matching and chatting with a married person? Yes, unfortunately it happens on Tinder! Oh, but wait, it also happens in bars, restaurants, at speed dating events, and through matchmaking services. It happens in life!

Does Tinder make hooking-up and casual sex easier? Yes, if you’re looking for it. But it makes finding meaningful relationships easier as well. What happens after you’re matched, depends on you and your partner. Trust your instincts and make sure your partner is on the same page. If someone makes you uncomfortable, un-match them, report the issue and move on.

Today’s technology, connectivity and innovative applications make connecting with and meeting new friends easy. But at the end of the day, you’re still the one who decides who you find attractive and with whom you want to spend your time. Tinder is just a tool — a portal to connect and introduce you to others. But it’s the biggest and baddest on the playground. And if you’re in the game, don’t you want to play with the best? Tinder is simple, quick, fun and free — and everyone seems to be doing it. If you’re single and looking, keep an open mind and check it out. You might be pleasantly surprised.

What It’s Like to Make M.A.C. Beauty Products for a Living

What if you could play with makeup all day long—and get paid for it? At M.A.C., the product-development team is responsible for dreaming up and testing every new makeup launch (and there are a lot of them). It’s a hard job, but someone’s got to do it. We talked to two of the company’s product developers about what it’s like to have one of the coolest jobs on the planet.

Hey, Nightlife. It’s Not You. It’s Me.

Dear long nights and irrationally expensive tabs,

“If you love somebody, let them go.”

It’s not you, it’s me. I love my couch too much. I love the way my Blu-ray sparkles in the living room light. I love how I have my very own food court just feet away. Is it heaven? No, it’s my house. So, I guess yes. Yes it is.

I apologize if this has caught you off guard, if this appears to be a shock, I know we have had a solid relationship over the years – that one time after prom, those moments in college, the times when I’ve attempted to be social as an adult. Really, you’ve been great. More than great, in fact. You’ve taught me how to stay calm in tense situations. You’ve taught me how to conquer uncomfortable situations. You’ve taught me how to deal with inconsiderate houseguests. You’ve taught me that it is possible to spend that much money on Taco Bell. But I feel as if we’re growing apart, I feel as if you’re not invested in our relationship – that you’re not meeting me half way.

I don’t want to make this a big deal…On a scale of sleeping through an alarm to the possibility of Donald Trump being president, it’s probably a ‘the waiter got my order wrong at a restaurant’ type of thing. I just feel like honesty is the best way to go. So, here it is.

My issue starts even before “going out.” Pregaming is stressful (but necessary). I have to make a playlist? Then get judged on every song? No thanks. Oh, you’re bringing a +1? This isn’t an effing wedding. I don’t want to meet any new people.

Fast forward…looks like the pregame is over, please leave everything for me to clean up in the morning, I love that and it gives my life meaning! Now go have fun while I stay and lock up. And there’s more. Then the night actually begins. OK not so fast – one of your friends has to stay back with your other friend who is crying for some stupid reason.

Continuing on.

I’m sick of the long lines. I mean, what the f*ck? I don’t want to feel like I’m at Disney World every time I want to buy a drink. Also, what’s up with making me run into people from my past who I clearly don’t want to see? It’s like A Christmas Carol but with my exes. I HATE that. I mean, I reallllyy hate that.

And the small talk? God-awful. How can I concentrate on singing along to Ed Sheeran when I have to pretend like I care about what others are saying?

What twisted soul came up with the idea of a bar anyways? “Do you like strangers? Do you like standing awkwardly close to those strangers? And also paying money for things? And spending half the night deciding how to split the cab fare? Great! You’re going to love it here.”

That’s why I found a new, cool, progressive bar. It’s called my house. Everything is free, you are encouraged to wear sweatpants, only people I like are allowed in, there are unlimited movies, there’s a dog somewhere, you won’t lose your wallet every. frickin. night, and there are (literally) tubs of ice cream. Did I mention there is a cute dog that runs around? Oh, and beds are within walking distance, so you can get your steps in. Did I just change the party scene forever? You’re welcome.

What I’m trying to say is that there’s still hope for us, but if you want to make this work I’m going to need to see some effort. The least you could do is play some good music, not that top 40 B.S. Regardless of what happens we should totally stay friends, though. Ya know?

With sincerity (and in sweatpants),
Someone who is over “it”

It’s Never Love at First Draft

Why would anyone want to read the original manuscript of a young writer who subsequently wrote a world-renowned classic, except to trace the development of that writer? Why, upon reading it, would anyone ascribe meaning to that manuscript so as to diminish, question or require a re-thinking of the writer’s fabulously successful published work? That first manuscript served as a waystation on a young writer’s journey to produce her novel, nothing else. It merits no consideration in and of itself.

Harper Lee’s Go Set A Watchman was not given an offer for publication back when it was first submitted to its publisher nearly 50 years ago, for a simple, perfect, reason: It was not good enough. This status quo endured for another simple reason: Harper Lee did not want it published, and her circle of intimates honored her preferences. Most likely, she did not view it as worthy of publication. After all, it was simply a draft and Lee was a champion of great writing.

I can only see one reason why Lee’s Go Set A Watchman found its way to publication in 2015: The self-interest of Lee’s publisher, HarperCollins trumped the author’s own long-standing and well-known preference. It’s hard to believe Ms. Lee cares about money after all these years, although not at all hard to believe that, with the passing of her older sister less than a year ago, who also served her advocate and legal protector, Lee was bullied into agreeing to publication.

It’s easy to imagine why Tay Hohoff, Ms. Lee’s original editor at J.B. Lippincott, worked closely with the then-budding writer to develop the rough manuscript she submitted into a different story. Simply, Ms. Hohoff didn’t believe the original story was worthy of publication, but she believed in the writer’s promise. Ms. Lee had work to do. A lot. The original manuscript may have shared the same locale and some main characters as the published novel, but that’s it. Kudos to the writer, and likely the editor as well, for reshaping instead of abandoning those ingredients and combining them into a masterpiece.

Having recently completed the years-long process of writing a recently published book, I can easily imagine how Harper Lee’s experience as a new writer could have mirrored mine in some way. (Not for a moment would I delude myself by thinking my book’s future will mirror To Kill A Mockingbird.)

I don’t know how many short essays I wrote in the run-up to starting my memoir, some about topics that ended up in the book, many that didn’t. When I finally started writing the memoir itself, I spent a year stringing together sentences and paragraphs before I realized I didn’t know where the story was heading. I couldn’t move it forward. Everywhere I looked, it seemed the action doubled back on itself into a cycle of sameness. I needed help.

Luckily, I found some, in the shape of a writing coach/editor who knew her stuff. A writer so green I needed a formal introduction to phrases like “story arc” (when I first heard the phrase, I thought of rainbow colored paragraphs), I discovered much of the work with my editor, Kelley Eskridge, involved not just writing on my own, but researching ideas and backstory, sketching out possible themes and metaphors, talking, thinking, musing, debating, and yes, even some negotiating.

I’d written one hundred plus pages, tens of thousands of words, and after reading all that, Kelley didn’t know what my story was about. As it turned out, I didn’t either. Was it about rowing? My dysfunctional family? My relationship with my mother?

I probably tossed out more words during my writing process than made it into my memoir. I’m not the only writer for whom that may be true. Much of writing, it turns out, is rewriting.

Go Set A Watchman should not be viewed as another Harper Lee novel, nor even as a precursor to To Kill A Mockingbird. It represented a transitory stage of Lee’s thinking, certainly a stage that she devoted countless hours to constructing, but it was an unfinished product. It was neither well-written nor a gripping story. (I personally found myself bored and unable to connect to any of the characters). It was a draft that held a kernel of a great idea, that an experienced editor saw and helped a novice writer develop to the point of excellence. Maybe the experience killed off Lee’s interest in writing further; maybe the experience satisfied her to the point that she didn’t want to attempt another round; maybe her unpredictably wild success sent her scurrying into lifelong seclusion. We will never really know.

Here’s what we do know: To Kill A Mockingbird is an amazing novel. No matter what Go Set A Watchman says or doesn’t say, no matter how the characters who appear in both stories are presented or misrepresented, the real novel is the one that was originally published, not the one that was originally submitted. What emerged from that early draft, an accumulation of discussion, debate, deep thought, and who knows how many crumpled pages, crossed out words and sentences, deleted paragraphs, rewritten sections, was a masterpiece. That’s what we’ve been reading for nearly fifty years, and that’s all that deserves to be remembered, not the mercenary act of a self-interested publishing house that took advantage of an aging, vulnerable writer.

It’s Happened: Kanye West Styled Kim Kardashian for a Sexy Photo Shoot

Even if we all think (know?) that Kanye West is responsible for Kim Kardashian’s style behind the scenes, we’re now getting a legit look at what happens when he takes on the role of stylist in a professional capacity. For a special booklet from System Magazine, shot by esteemed fashion photographer Juergen Teller, West acts as stylist, putting his wife in a skin-color bustier and leotard, plus black thigh-highs.


A photo posted by @quickfixretouch on

With no specifics on how many pages the special edition has, it’s not clear whether we can expect multiple Kim-for-Kanye ensembles or if it’s just this one sultry look. The combo we have seen certainly shares a lot of similarities with the athletic, body-con looks West did for his Adidas collection. It would certainly make sense for Kardashian to model them first (that is, if she hasn’t already…).

The SCOTUS Decision That’s Really Good For Mental Health (Hint: It’s Not Obamacare)

The Supreme Court of the United States made a historic ruling on same-sex marriage on Friday, voting 5 to 4 in favor of legalizing all unions. Not only does this allow everyone to marry the person they love, regardless of sexual orientation, but it’s also a step forward for mental health in a community that’s often stigmatized.

The SCOTUS decision is a leap in the right direction — especially when it comes to boosting the mental health of LGBT individuals.

According to the American Psychological Association, marriage boosts psychosocial and mental health due to the moral, social and even economic support extended to married couples in our society — and denial of those rights may impose certain risks when it comes to well-being. A 2012 University of California, Los Angeles study found that psychological distress is lower among gay, lesbian and bisexual couples who are allowed to be legally married, compared with those in unions that are not legally recognized.

In other words, science suggests that letting people marry who they want boosts mental and maybe even physical health.

The UCLA study isn’t the only evidence that champions legalized same-sex marriage for this reason. Around 2004, when state bans on same-sex marriage started to peak, the National Institutes of Mental Health conducted a survey that examined respondents’ mental health. Results showed gay, lesbian or bisexual individuals who lived in states where their unions were banned experienced a notable increase in psychiatric disorders, NPR reported, including mood disorders and alcohol-use disorder.

Additionally, when same-sex marriage laws passed in Massachusetts in 2003, research found that gay men experienced fewer stress-related disorders and lower health care use, suggesting a potential link between the two events.

Social exclusion may also take a toll on mental health, studies show, something the LGBT community has been all too familiar with when it comes to marriage. “It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves,” Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote in the majority opinion on the ruling. “Their hope is to not be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions.”

Fundamentally, love of all kinds contributes to several health perks, including a healthier heart, better mood and even improved longevity. While love doesn’t require marriage, a celebration of love can be viewed as a celebration of this kind of health. Ruling in favor of same-sex marriage also rules in favor of a happy, healthy mind by creating a more inclusive community free from isolation — and that’s something we can all support.

The One Thing You Should Do More of Before It’s Too Late

Just hug.

My Grandma died one year ago today. I don’t believe anyone really truly dies, because I believe we are a spirit encapsulated in a physical body. And because of that, I don’t get sad thinking that I can’t talk to my grandma any more. I am not sad because I think she’s gone forever. I know she is here in some way. But what DOES make me sad is that I can’t hug her anymore.

2015-05-27-1432736287-2232056-10325153_667401969993837_4861156162332956571_n.jpg

We are physical beings. We have the extraordinary ability to feel things, to touch things, to embrace, to see, to hear, to explore, to imagine, and to love. Our bodies and our senses are the tools that allow us to connect with the people and environments around us.

2015-05-27-1432736455-1856374-10407970_667395543327813_8587078006495991750_n.jpg

My dreams of my grandma have always been just of hugging her. Not much else happens. I just find myself laying in bed forcing myself to stay asleep so that the hug will last longer. I just want to lie next to her in her hospice bed without saying anything. I just want to BE there. I wish all of our hugs were longer. I wish I was more present during them. I wish they weren’t quick hellos and good byes. I wish I cuddled next to her on the couch more often.

2015-05-27-1432736237-975846-10302105_667401669993867_7199032670596430573_n.jpg

Aren’t those the best moments? When you’re able to just BE with someone you love? Your mother, father, sister, brother, son, daughter, best friend, or significant other? Don’t you just love those moments where not much is happening, and not much is being said? It’s like this little glimpse of time where time doesn’t actually seem to exist.

2015-05-27-1432736341-2475425-10406557_667402056660495_8750206142747383091_n.jpg

Happiness doesn’t occur sometime in the future or the past. It doesn’t occur in a memory. It occurs in those little instances where we get to truly feel alive and connected. And it usually includes another human being who we love deeply.

I don’t think of myself as someone who regrets very much in life. To me, everything is a learning experience. But I think this might be the one regret that I do have. However, I know that the best thing that I can do now, is hug more, for longer, and with more people.

So hug more. I’m going to tell my family and my sisters that we need to do it more, and you should too. Don’t wait. Hug randomly and when they least expect it. Hug for longer periods of time. Squeeze harder and hold on. Make it weird. Secretly they like it. I promise.

I bet conflicts will naturally dissipate, tension will subside, and relationships will get better. And with something so so simple.

Hug like you mean it, and like you know that the day will come when you can’t hug them anymore.

2015-05-27-1432736710-6573358-10351452_667408829993151_4092876817152546887_n.jpg

What to Wear to Work When It’s REALLY Hot Out

Looking for a polished office look fit for the summer heat? Enter the sleeveless blazer. Much like a traditional suit jacket, it will add the extra office-appropriate detail that your summer dress or trousers beg for, with minimal bulk.

Take a cue from some chic ladies and scroll down to find the three ways we’re wearing our sleeveless blazers to the office this summer.

With a Printed Dress
While printed dresses are tricky to style for the workplace, a sleeveless blazer does just the trick. Belted, buttoned, or loosely hanging open, the indoor outerwear covers just enough of the print to subdue while exposing just enough of your fun, summery vibe.

With a Crisp Shirtdress
Ah, the shirtdress. The world’s answer to pretty much everything. A crisp white style on its own may seem a bit too plain for the office, but simply slip into a sleeveless vest and you immediately look as if you’ve pulled out the big guns. Chic as it may be, no one has to know it was the simplest outfit fix out there!

8 Steps to Truly Love Yourself — and Why It’s the Most Selfless Thing You Can Do

There seems to be a very beautiful trend taking shape that I am completely devoted to: It is starting to be popular to “be loving.” Over the last few years, health, spiritual practices and taking care of mother earth are starting to be considered a hip thing — rather than a strange “hippie” thing. I am delighted by how this is reflected in the overall consciousness of our planet: We are starting to truly care about ourselves. When I started studying yoga about ten years ago the concept of ahimsa — non-harming — was still rather unknown in mainstream society. Meditation, yoga, vegetarianism, conscious consumerism, recycling, all those trends have really only been taking root in the last few years. Of course there are issues, and they need to be addressed. But what matters is the shift that we see happening on a global scale.

What does this tell us about the individuals who make up our societies? It simply means we are starting to genuinely love ourselves more. I know we still have some work to do, but we are on the way. And as on every path, the important thing is: Keep going! Keep loving yourself! Keep pampering yourself and noticing! Keep noticing what is happening around you and how our society and the way we treat our earth is changing. Why? Because taking care of yourself, loving yourself, living your purpose will lift the entire planet.

1. Serve the world by living your purpose

What is your soul’s deepest desire? What is your biggest dream for your own life? Chances are that it’s not a 9-5 desk job. However, when first pondering this question, your dreams might seem selfish. Start by seeking out those people who celebrate you being big. In most modern societies, this isn’t a common behavior (at least not yet) and you’ll need a bit of creativity to make it work and yes, there will be a few lonely moments. But the feeling of your soul smiling is priceless. And once you experienced this feeling, it is hard to ever go back.

Consider this powerful quote by Marianne Williamson:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

2. Empower people by being confident

It ties in with the above point. It’s easier to reduce yourself to a being worthy of compassion. People will feel your misery and will try to help you. But on the contrary, how inspiring is it to be around somebody who is genuinely confident? It really makes you feel that you can do it too, right?

3. Stop the gossip. Stop the complaints.

Complaining is a negative energy that locks us into a certain way of thinking. When we look for the negative in others we zoom in on exactly that — the negative surrounding us. Once we shift our radar towards what inspires us in others we are instead looking for connection, growth, love, joy — short, uplifting energies. And those are exactly the qualities we will then be able to nurture in our own lives. It takes time and practice to achieve this shift. The road might be bumpy and you might have to redirect some conversations when you first start practicing. But it will get easier and easier, until it turns from a practice into your second nature!

4. Balance of gentleness and firmness

I struggled with anorexia in my teenage years. All through my 20s I learned to nurture my body, and myself, slowly learning to be gentle with myself. My studies of self-development, yoga and Vedanta gave me an increased feeling of being complete in myself. Yet, there was still that nagging negative voice that would keep coming up, a voice that felt so much more powerful than my other, gentle voice. It was only when my best friend and coach Kat Dawes from Nowism recommended to try out a fierce voice whenever I judged myself that I achieved the crucial shift. This practice really helped me to eliminate that last bit I just didn’t quite seem to get rid of. Now when my inner voice criticizes myself I know how to be fierce and redirect my thoughts with firmness.

The best thing you can do for yourself is finding that balance for yourself: Find out when you need to give yourself a kick, but also when you need to give yourself a big hug and a bubble bath.

5. Keep promises made to yourself

When you make a promise to yourself KEEP IT! Honor your own word to yourself, whether that is to take a break, go on a holiday, go to a yoga class, eat more healthily, or go to bed early. Imagine what your friend would say if you’d let her down as many times as you let down yourself. To make things easier, find yourself an “accountability buddy.” Tell each other the things you have planned to nurture yourself — and check in with each other once a week to see how you are doing.

6. Nourish and celebrate yourself

Having been completely absorbed in the yogic world for years, I noticed a tendency to discard materialism as something entirely negative. However, I acknowledged to myself how much I love being a girl sometimes, including all those little pretty things such as make-up, clothes and spa treatments. But instead of drawing negative energy out of this “attachment,” I achieved a huge internal shift: I started treating those things as a personal act of celebrating my femininity, as an act of gratitude for having been given a healthy body. It’s a ceremony to give thanks for the blessings in my life and for having received this life force, a force that needs to be nurtured. You need to be grateful for receiving it and honor it by living your highest purpose.
Therefore, allow yourself to nourish yourself — no matter if that means going to the gym, getting a pedicure or buying new shoes — do it with a huge smile on your face.

Living in Bali has been a huge inspiration for me in that regard — the women in Bali dress up in the most beautiful ways for their ceremonies to go to the temples or to give daily offerings. And then they change into leggings and flip-flops to go to work. It is such a sweet symbol of dressing up – for the divine, not to impress others. I went through an interesting process of reconciling my identity of being a designer with the role of a business woman. I had to truly embrace the fact that my designs are an expression of the divine energy inside me and that sharing this energy with the world is my gift to uplift others. We need to embrace the fact that we are material bodies living in a material world. Make your life a celebration of the wonderful world around you, every moment, every day!

7. Have integrity with the people who surround you

One of my favorite books is The 4 Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. The first agreement is, “Be impeccable with your word.” There is such depth in this agreement. If we make a promise to ourselves to always be true to ourselves we start having quality control in the most genuine way. We speak with love. There are certain attitudes and behaviors we don’t accept. And by doing so, we actually serve humanity. There are so many people out there — it is totally fine to not open up to all of them. But we can find ways to be respectful and friendly in all situations.
However, if somebody weighs you down by their continuous negativity it’s fine to set boundaries. It is just as much of an inspiration to watch somebody who has healthy boundaries, as it is to watch somebody to be all-embracing love. Trust your intuition. Trust your gut.

8. Step by step towards your soul’s alignment — don’t ever think you have more time

Do it now! Take a little step at a time — but don’t put it off. Take baby steps in the right direction, even if it’s just a little today, and a little tomorrow. Honored to be walking right there with you!

It’s Not Just Nail Salons. Hairstylists Face Serious Health Problems, Too

The health and safety of nail salon workers made headlines earlier this month after The New York Times published a series on unsafe and unfair work conditions. It turns out that manicurists aren’t alone: Hairstylists can also relate to some of the struggles reported on by the Times as they are often forced to work long hours in hazardous conditions and for unfair wages.

Alexandra Scranton, director of science and research at Women’s Voices for the Earth, joined HuffPost Live host Nancy Redd on Thursday to discuss the high price of fabulous hair. After taking a deep dive into medical reports, Scranton discovered that “up to 60-70 percent of salon workers reported dermatitis on their hands and respiratory conditions like asthma and decrease in lung function,” mostly due to chemical overexposure.

Hairstylist Cassi Hurd revealed that she recently burned her hand twice in the same spot while working, and she also experiences “coughing attacks” as a result of mixing hair colors or bleach.

The health risks are especially appalling among African-American hairdressers, since many treatments include working with harsh chemicals. Teni Adewumi, an environmental justice research coordinator for Black Women for Wellness, joined the conversation to disclose findings from an upcoming report that show cases of stylists suffering from uterine fibroids, miscarriages, and even ergonomic problems.

Things get really hairy when you factor in how these issues may potentially affect the health of consumers. Hopefully, dialogues such as these, along with proper training, state legislation and regulation within the beauty industry will change things for the better.

Research Confirms That Humble Bragging Doesn’t Work, It’s Just Really Annoying

Before you share the news about your recent job promotion on Facebook, consider this: Researchers have found that a little humble-bragging can backfire. In other words, your false modesty is pretty transparent, and people detest you for it.

The difference between a humble brag and a traditional brag is the way in which a person presents her accomplishment. Two tweets for clarity:

Humble brag:

Standard brag:

The humble brag attempts to obscure the fact that Ms. Swift has a custom designer dress for a big celebrity event by sharing a “relatable” detail about her unruly cat. The standard brag states, outright, an accomplishment.

The study, which comes from researchers at City University London, Carnegie Mellon University and Bocconi University and was published in Psychological Science, reveals that humble-braggers misread the affects of their self-promotion: They overestimate positive responses and emotions and underestimate negatives ones.

“Most people probably realize that they experience emotions other than pure joy when they are on the receiving end of someone else’s self-promotion. Yet, when we engage in self-promotion ourselves, we tend to overestimate others’ positive reactions and underestimate their negative ones,” says Irene Scopelliti, the study’s lead and a lecturer in marketing at City University London. She says the impact of self-promotion may be exacerbated by social media, where there’s a greater distance between the news-sharer and the recipient.

Self-promoters’ objection may be to make a good impression, but this often backfires. Researchers performed two different experiments to gauge the boaster’s misperception when it came to how his or her message was received. In the first, Scopelliti told The Huffington Post, half of the participants were asked to describe a case in which they had bragged to someone else. They were then told to describe the emotions they felt and the emotions the thought the recipient felt. The other participants were told to describe an instance where someone had bragged to them, how they felt and how they believed the braggart felt. “We coded the emotions indicated and observed that the braggers thought their recipients experienced far more positive emotions, and far less negative emotions, than recipients did,” Scopelliti said.

The second study asked participants to, again, describe a situation where they bragged to someone else or someone else bragged about them. The same results occurred: self-promoters miscalculated the extent to which recipients were happy for them and proud of them, and underestimated the extent to which recipients were annoyed by them. “We attribute this miscalibration to a phenomenon called the ‘empathy gap’: both parties, self-promoters and recipients, have trouble imagining how they would feel if they roles were reversed,” Scopelliti said.

A third, separate experiment was to test emotions connected to online bragging. The researchers gauged reactions to online profiles, some of which were much more self-promotional than others. Their findings revealed that those on the receiving end of a show-off sentence or Facebook status perceive excessive self-promoters as unlikable and as braggarts. Despite the profile creator’s thinking, self-promoting details did not impress readers — their intentions actually backfired. Their self-promotion decreased readers positive perceptions of the person who they were reading about.

“These results are particularly important in the Internet age, when opportunities for self-promotion have proliferated via social networking,” Scopelliti said. “The emotional miscalibration that we observe may indeed be exacerbated by the additional distance between people sharing information and their recipients, which can both reduce the empathy of the self-promoter and decrease the sharing of pleasure by the recipient.”

A team of Harvard researchers recently release a separate paper that underscored the same findings about humble bragging. The researchers ran five different experiments with 302 participants, having them rate the likability and attractiveness of a humble bragger. They found that those who humble bragged were perceived as more irritating and less likable than complainers and traditional braggarts.

At the conclusion of their paper, the researchers print a word of advice for anyone looking to share an achievement: “Faced with the choice to (honestly) brag or (deceptively) humblebrag, would-be self-promoters should choose the former –- and at least reap the rewards of seeming sincere,” they write.

Think before you #humblebrag.

This Music Festival Knows It Can’t Stop People From Doing Drugs, So It’s Trying To Keep Them Safe Instead

The upcoming Lightning in a Bottle Music Festival, which starts Thursday in Bradley, California, is a drug-free event. But rather than pretend this label and any effort to enforce it will create a drug-repellant force field around the festival, organizers say they’re preparing for the inevitable: They know some drugs will find their way through security and into people’s bodies, so they’re offering a host of resources to help minimize the potential negative effects on users.

As part of this effort, Lightning in a Bottle and its coordinators at the Do Lab are partnering with two groups, DanceSafe — a health organization that focuses on harm reduction and education at music festivals and nightlife venues — and the Zendo Project — a program sponsored by the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies that offers help to anyone going through a difficult experience while on psychedelic drugs.

Part of DanceSafe’s operation involves providing a judgment-free space to proactively address drug dangers before they emerge. The group believes educating people about potential problem signs associated with recreational drug use — often simple things like heat stroke, dehydration and even hyponatremia, a life-threatening condition brought on by drinking too much water — will help users seek treatment earlier rather than later. DanceSafe also offers condoms, earplugs, free water and an open line of communication to anyone who wants to talk about how they can make sure their good time doesn’t become a bad time.

Meanwhile, the Zendo Project offers what Stefanie Jones, nightlife community engagement manager for Drug Policy Alliance, a progressive nonprofit that advocates for drug policy reform, referred to as “mental health services” for people on psychedelic drugs. Anyone who may find themselves confused, upset, uncomfortable or in need of help anywhere else along their psychedelic trip can turn to one of the project’s trained therapists.

DanceSafe has also made a name for itself by offering on-site drug checking, which tells users which substances they actually have and how to use them responsibly. Jones told The Huffington Post that these services will not be available at Lightning in a Bottle due to concerns that organizers could be prosecuted under a federal law that prohibits the “maintaining of a drug-involved premise.”

Music festivals have attracted scrutiny in recent years following a spate of drug overdoses and drug-related deaths. With the growth of cheaper and ever-changing synthetic substances, the music festival drug market — where baggies of different colored powders and pills are often passed between strangers in porta-potties — is only getting harder and more risky to navigate.

Last year, a documentary filmmaker followed a group that offered drug testing services at popular festivals and found that 100 percent of the people who came to them thinking they had MDMA, also called “molly” or “ecstasy,” actually had bath salts, a term that has come to refer to any of a number of popular synthetic drugs. They also found examples of drugs being cut with powerful or dangerous adulterants that would almost certainly change a user’s predicted experience.

While these trends are frightening, they don’t mean fewer people are experimenting with drugs at festivals. This has led to some differing opinions on how to approach the problem.

In New York, the popular electronic music festival Electric Zoo rebooted in 2014, a year after two drug-related deaths made national headlines and forced the event to shut down a day early. Hoping to avoid another death or PR disaster, organizers opted for an enforcement-first approach. Here’s how Billboard described the scene:

In an effort to prevent against casualties, the festival has overcorrected and made widely known its use of high-tech cameras, drug-sniffing dogs and ramped-up security. The substance checkpoints are more thorough, requiring attendees to remove shoes, and cops — both in uniform and undercover — seemed to almost outnumber the fans.

Festival-goers were also required to watch an anti-drug PSA before attending, and organizers dispatched a group of medical students called “Zookeepers” to help with any emerging issues.

In past years, Lightning in a Bottle has also been targeted by intense drug enforcement activity. In 2013, when the event was held in Temecula, California, undercover officers arrested 58 people for drug-related offenses. Many of the suspects claimed they were coerced into selling drugs and accused officers of calling them “hippies” and “brain-dead retards.”

Organizers at Lightning in a Bottle have limited control over how law enforcement chooses to get involved with their event, but they are being more vocal than in years past about their harm-reduction policies.

While DanceSafe has been present at Lightning in a Bottle since 2013 and the Zendo Project joined last year, the festival is making a greater effort this time around to let attendees know that these services are available. They’ve built a “harm reduction” section into the festival’s official code of conduct and, according to DPA, will link to the page in a newsletter they send to attendees. The Zendo Project has also scheduled a basic training on Friday to tell attendees about its services.

After the festival ends, organizers will coordinate with Mutual Aid Response Services, a risk management consulting company, to evaluate the effectiveness of the services and the efforts to promote them, and to determine ways to better integrate these approaches into future events.

Harm reduction is one of many issues being championed by Lightning in a Bottle, which, according to its website, include encouraging people to think hard about whether they should wear a Native American headdress to the festival. To anyone coming from Coachella, the answer is no.

Jones said Lightning in a Bottle is one of the first festivals to get on board with DPA’s push to encourage groups to take more pragmatic approaches to drug use. A guide released by the group lays out the essential considerations and strategies for anyone planning a large-scale event.

And while Jones admitted there is still work to do to break the stigma surrounding drug use — including allowing for on-site drug checking so people can make sure they’re not about to eat rat poison — she praised Lightning in a Bottle for taking such an open and comprehensive stance to harm reduction.

“What they’re doing is a heroic,” Jones said. “They’re making every effort in a tough environment to keep their attendees safe.”

L.A. Reid Says It’s Not ‘Realistic’ For Mariah Carey To Make Another Number One Hit

Mariah Carey has a new compilation of her number one hits entitled, “#1 to Infinity.” Sound familiar? Yes, it’s her third. On Monday, the songstress gave fans a sneak peek of the music video for the album’s lead single, “Infinity.”

Although the single failed to crack Billboard’s Top 10 charts — it debuted at 82 earlier this month— Carey’s longtime label boss, L.A. Reid, says it’s not “realistic” to expect the Grammy Award-winning songstress to regain her previous chart-topping success in today’s music climate.

“Mariah Carey made her first hit record in 1991. To even be on the radio at this point in her career is a huge accomplishment, because radio doesn’t cater to veteran artists or legends,” he said.

But he didn’t stop there. In a new interview with Billboard, Reid explained why he feels veteran artists such as Carey, Bruce Springsteen and Prince have difficulty earning radio airplay.

“Radio caters to in-the-moment stars… Nobody that put out records 25 years ago is going to have a No. 1. Not Paul, Stevie, Bruce, Mick or Keith. Not Prince, not anyone. So if she can get on the radio, we’ve done damn good. Would we like to have a No. 1? F– yeah, I’m greedy. But it’s not realistic.”

Reid’s revealed his solution for veteran artists to the mag. “I like concept records, I like the idea of thematic, storytelling records. I love duets and the Great American Songbook. I think a great vocalist should un-cage themselves and think about things like that sometimes,” he stated.

“I mean, Frank Sinatra did it. It’s fun to sing songs you love. And let’s not forget that one of Mariah’s biggest hits, ‘I’ll Be There,’ was a cover. There are many things that Mariah can still do.”

It’s OK To Be Fat. Go Ahead. You’re Allowed.

I know the fat shamers on the anti-fat Reddit threads and the “concern trolls” all over the world will disagree heartily, but I am allowed to take up as much space as I want to take up. And, you know what else? I do not OWE IT TO ANYONE to be fat and healthy, either.

Contrary to popular opinion, I can be fat and healthy if I want to be. I can also be fat and unhealthy. Fat people have existed as long as humans have existed, so get used to us. We’re not going to go and hide just because a bunch of people who have a lot of time to waste on a computer are creating hate sights dedicated to making fun of our fat body. I’ve been fat for over 30 years. My fat skin is extra thick and used to your vile and mean comments. They roll right off my back. (And right over my fat ass, too.) And, the mean threads that are started by the fat haters actually fuel my fire and serve as a reminder as to how much there is still to do in the Body Acceptance movement.

To me, it’s plain and simple: You get to exist any way you want to exist. As Pink so eloquently put it recently when being attacked about her body: “I’m not worried about me. And I’m not worried about you, either. I am perfectly fine, perfectly happy, and my healthy, voluptuous and crazy strong body is having some much deserved time off.”

Pink is saying what a lot of us “fatties” in the Body Acceptance movement repeat over and over. “My body, my business. Your body, your business.” I have had my run-ins with people (total strangers) trying to police my body and the customers of my lingerie boutique. I even was on CNN talking about the right to be fat and wear lingerie. My boutique and I got embroiled in a fierce media debate about whether or not my plus size lingerie boutique glorifies obesity.

I think it’s happiness that really infuriates and confuses some fat haters. People are often baffled when they see happy fat people. And when you add in the idea that we are not addicted to dieting or working out or obsessed with the notion that we should become some thin version of ourselves, well, that really throws the shamers and haters for a loop. I literally had to defend, on national TV, our right to exist as fat women who want to wear sexy and very revealing lingerie. All bodies are good bodies. All bodies deserve to be celebrated. No one body is better than another body.

So, yes, you can EXIST and take up more space than your neighbor. You do not have to quality that existence with a “but, I am fat and healthy.” You don’t have to justify anything to anyone about your body and what it looks like on the outside or the inside. The people who want to police your body are just sad, unhappy people with way too much time on their hands. They have nothing better to do. Me, on the other hand, I have shit to do. And, the first item on my TO-DO list is to help fat, thick, curvy women to find some sexy lingerie and help them celebrate their fat, luscious bodies.

It’s Grandma’s First Time In Hawaii And She’s Not Impressed

Hula, getting lei’d, a nice sunset, perhaps some tropical cocktails … sounds like a good time, right?

Not according to this grandma.

Redditor ratedhero recently posted a picture of his grandmother during her first trip to Hawaii and, by the looks of it, she was seriously unimpressed.

According to ratedhero, they were at a hotel luau on the island of Maui when he took the photo below.

View post on imgur.com

The photo, uploaded earlier this week, quickly found its way to the top of reddit. Curious redditors asked if grandma had even a little bit of fun.

That’s questionable,” redditor lindsie128, who claims to be the original poster’s sister, replied, including another photo.

“Later in the trip we drove to an amazing spot with a waterfall. The waterfall was down a short, fairly level path in the jungle. My dad asked, ‘Don’t you want to walk down and see it up close?’ She and my aunt said ‘No, we can see it fine from the car.'”

Here’s grandma and auntie watching the awe-inspiring beauty of a Hawaiian waterfall from the comfort of a rental sedan.

Of course, the internet does what it does best and made a meme of it.

Watch out, Grumpy Cat. Maybe Unimpressed Grandma will get her own movie, too.

George Clooney on Amal’s Style: “It’s Eccentric, a Fun Sense of Fashion”

amal-clooney-george-clooney-met-gala-2015

It’s official: George Clooney is just as besotted with wife Amal’s style as the rest of us, calling it “amazing” in a recent interview. “Since the day I met her, she’s always had this insanely…it’s eccentric, but it’s fun, [her] sense of fashion,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “She was teaching at Columbia, and she’s still like, ‘I want to wear that dress.’ It’s crazy. It has been sort of fascinating to watch, because she has such great taste.”

Of the traditional robes Amal wears to court, George has mixed feelings. “I’m always very proud of her when I see her speaking with her robe on. It’s very impressive,” he said. “It’s a nice-looking robe, [but] they could spice it up a little bit.” In the interview, Clooney goes on to share some of the many reasons he fell in love with the human-rights lawyer. “She’s an amazing human being,” he told ET‘s Nancy O’Dell. “And she’s caring. And she also happens to be one of the smartest people I’ve ever met. And she’s got a great sense of humor. There’s a number of reasons why.”

Someone Built His Rabbit An Iron Throne Made Of Carrots, And It’s Glorious

Will Wallace the Mad King be a fair and just ruler? Or will he hop jarringly from one decree to the other? How will he ensure hay quotas are met?

These are the questions Wallace the rabbit’s owner should have asked before handing over the keys to the seven kingdoms.

Alas, the mad king now sits atop the Iron Carrot Throne, holding tight to power. We think “Game of Thrones” author George RR Martin would be proud.

King Geoffrey is dead.

All hail Wallace the Mad King!

A note for the new king, who should keep an eye on his waistline: per the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, carrots are high in sugar and should only be fed to rabbits in small amounts as an occasional treat.
