Chrissy Teigen Debuted the Cutest Choppy Bangs After Polling the Internet

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017

Chrissy Teigen‘s people have spoken and they told her…not to get bangs. After polling her Twitter followers on whether she should make the chop and adopt fringe, 60 percent of voters warned against it. Though, like the rebel we know she is, the 31-year-old model went against the masses and chopped her hair into bangs anyways.

On Tuesday, hours after revealing that she’s pregnant with her second child with her husband, John Legend, Teigen delivered another huge piece of news: She has bangs! In a video showing off her fresh cut, Teigen can be seen tousling her new choppy fringe, which was cut in shaggy layers and fell right above her eyebrows, while gushing about how much she loves the hair change. In the background, Teigen’s hairstylist, Jen Atkin, who has also worked with Kardashian-Jenner clan, among other A-listers, can be heard telling her, “Just got banged.”

“It’s my hair! I love it. You really are talented,” Teigen tells Atkin.

In her own post flaunting her work, Atkin teased Teigen about the chop, jokingly suggesting that her new bangs were a bigger deal than her incoming baby. “Congrats to @johnlegend and @chrissyteigen on the addition to their family…Chrissy’s new bangs (oh and another baby) 😜✂” Atkin wrote in the caption.

People Told Amber Heard She Was ‘Throwing Away’ Her Career After She Came Out

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

As expected, Amber Heard‘s experience with coming out in Hollywood went less than smooth. In an interview with Allure, the 31-year-old actress opened up about her sexuality and the homophobia she experienced after she went public with her attraction to women.

In the interview, Heard recalled her “coming out” moment in Hollywood. It was a few years ago when she was photographed holding hands with a woman who she was dating at the time. “I [was] holding her hand, and I realized that I have two options,” Heard said. “I can let go of her hand and, when asked about it, I can say that my private life is my private life. Or I could not let go and own it.”

And though Heard fully accepted how her life and career would change after coming out, her professional team wasn’t convinced that the milestone was a right move for her public image. Considering her history of playing love interests for actors like Nicolas Cage and Johnny Depp, Heard’s management warned that coming out would have long-lasting repercussions for her career.

“Everyone said, ‘You’re throwing it all away. You can’t do this to your career,’” Heard said. “And I said, ‘I cannot do this any other way. Watch me.’ ”

To this day, Heard doesn’t identify with the term “coming out.” Instead, she believes that labels, such as bisexual, should be nixed. As much as she feels a part of the LGBTQ community, Heard doesn’t connect with words associated with the acronym and believes that people should skip categorizations and simply identify as “human.”

“I didn’t come out. I was never in. It’s limiting, that LGBTQ thing,” Heard said. “It served a function as an umbrella for marginalized people to whom rights were being denied, but it loses its efficacy because of the nuanced nature of humanity. As we become more educated and expand the facts of our nature, we keep adding letters. It was a great shield, but now we’re stuck behind it. It’s so important to resist labels. I don’t care how many letters you add. At some point, it’s going to spell ‘WE ARE HUMAN.’ ”

Heard may star in two anticipated D.C. superhero movies, “Justice League” and “Aquaman,” but it seems like she’s doing most of her hero work IRL. Props to her for keeping it real.


Taylor Swift Threatens Lawsuit Against Music Writer After ‘Defamatory’ Review

Tuesday, November 7th, 2017

Four days before the release of her sixth album, Reputation, Taylor Swift is coming under fire for threatening a music writer’s freedom of speech. On Monday, news broke that the 27-year-old singer is threatening PopFront editor, Meghan Herning, for writing a review comparing Swift’s song, “Look What You Made Me Do,” to support of white supremacy and the alt-right.

The review, which was published on September 5 and titled “Swiftly to the alt-right: Taylor subtly gets the lower case kkk in formation,” argued that Swift’s music catered to racism in the United States and claimed that the singer was a member of the “lower-case kkk,” a term dubbed by actor Aziz Ansari to refer to quiet supporters of white supremacy.

Herning’s piece referenced Swift’s lyrics (such as “I rise up from the dead. I do it all the time.”) and a shot from the music video, where Herning compared her stance to Adolf Hitler’s, as evidence of Swift’s racism. “Silence in the face of injustice means support for the oppressor,” Herning wrote.

On October 25, roughly two months after the review was published, Herning received a letter from Swift’s legal team demanding that the story be taken down and that PopFront issue a retraction. The letter, which calls the review “defamatory,” also privately stated Swift’s denouncement of white supremacy—though, Swift’s attorneys restricted Herning from publicizing the denouncement due to copyright protection.

After receiving the letter, Herning reached out to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) for help. In a letter hitting back at Swift, the ACLU argued that the singer has no legal basis for a lawsuit threat, considering the review was based entirely on opinion and thus protected by the First Amendment and freedom of speech. “This is a completely unsupported attempt to suppress constitutionally protected speech,” said ACLU attorney Michael Risher.

The ACLU’s letter also took subtle jabs at Swift’s music, with sentences cheekily referencing the singer’s lyrics and song titles. “Criticism is never pleasant, but a celebrity has to shake it off, even if the critique may damage her reputation,” is one of several references the ACLU made.

In her own statement, Herning also denounced Swift, claiming that the singer used “scare tactics” to bully her and PopFront, a culture blog with less than 130 twitter followers, into submission. “The press should not be bullied by high-paid lawyers or frightened into submission by legal jargon,” Herning said. “These scare tactics may have worked for Taylor in the past, but I am not backing down.”
