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 Is Releasing Merchandise Inspired by an Outfit People Trolled Her For

Friday, November 3rd, 2017

Taylor Swift, Queen of Subtlety, is hitting back at haters in the most sly way. On Thursday, the 27-year-old singer dropped a look book displaying several items from her new Reputation merchandise line. And though the line features several, er, interesting pieces (like an oversized sweater with an inception-like picture of Swift wearing the same oversized sweater on it), there was one item that immediately caught the internet’s attention: a burgundy v-neck sweater with a choker with the word “Rep” on it.

Though the sweater might seem mundane at first, there’s a backstory to it that’ll leave you applauding Swift in the end. In November 2014, Swift attended a New York Knicks basketball game, where she wore black boots, khaki pants, and her infamous v-neck red sweater. After the photos of Swift at the basketball game hit the internet, fans couldn’t help but notice something odd about her outfit.

One Swiftie posted a side-by-side photo of how Swift wore the sweater versus how the piece was originally worn by its model. While Swift wore the piece with the v-neck facing the front of her body, the sweater was intended to be worn the opposite way, with the v-neck on the back.

“I think what they’re trying to say politely is…I wore the shirt wrong didn’t I,” Swift commented back to a fan, who tried to make the case that her backwards sweater was a creative choice.

Of course, when Swift’s mistake caught wind on the internet, she was immediately made fun of for her fashion faux pas.

Flash forward to today and Swift hasn’t let teasing go. Instead, she’s channeled the trolling into her own spin on the sweater by selling the near-exact piece on her website, with the abbreviation of her album title emblazoned on the neckline. Yup. Along with reclaiming the snake (a nod to when Kim Kardashian suggested she was one with her Snapchat exposé), Swift is now reclaiming a shirt.

You’ve been warned: Don’t mess with Swift, otherwise your hate might be featured in a song—or on her merchandise—in the future.

People Think Chrissy Teigen’s Skin Was White-Washed for This Magazine Cover

Saturday, October 7th, 2017

Chrissy Teigen might be the latest victim of white-washing in the fashion industry—at least, according to some fans who are accusing InStyle magazine of erasing the 31-year-old model’s Thai features on the cover of their November issue.

After Teigen’s cover debuted this week, angry fans took to a forum on the fashion site, The Fashion Spot, to express their outrage over InStyle‘s alleged Photoshop. The commenters mainly accused the magazine of lightening Teigen’s skin and changing her eyeshape. Teigen, who is half Thai, is naturally tan and has almond-shaped eyes—features some fans found missing on her recent cover.

Along with allegations of white-washing, some also accused InStyle of airbrushing Teigen’s pores and facial lines—a surprise to most, considering the “Lip Sync Battle” host has been a vocal proponent of Photoshop-free pictures. A few of the comments included:

“OK, so… this is awkward. The amount of Photoshop in that cover is downright atrocious. They’ve airbrushed Chrissy’s face into oblivion, to the point where she is unrecognizable. Am I the only one who’s sat here shocked? Yikes!”

“Who is this woman?! she certainly doesn’t look like Chrissy! talk about whitewashing…”

“They just about whitewashed every inch of exoticness Chrissy had. This is so painstakingly mediocre it’s not even funny.”

Though Teigen’s skin looks suspiciously smooth and pale on her cover, it’s important to note that there is no confirmation of Photoshop. And, considering that lighting and angles could also be at play, we won’t know for sure until InStyle or Teigen comments themselves. However, Teigen’s decision to not post the cover or any of the issue’s photos on her Instagram (at least, not immediately) seems to speak volumes.

People are Painting Viral Memes on Their Eyelids, and OMG

Friday, March 24th, 2017

Uh, in case you haven’t looked at your phone in a few weeks, beauty art has resurfaced in a majorly weird, insanely hilarious way: in the form of meme makeup. Yeah, that doesn’t really make sense, but once you see the pictures, you’ll understand. Because makeup artists are taking our favorite memes, like the infamous Crying Kim, Salt Bae, and Evil Kermit, and painting them on their eyelids, like teeny, tiny works of art. Yup.

According to Buzzfeed, who first spotted the phenomenon, the trend seems to have started by a makeup artist (whose Twitter handle is @thai_brows), who posted a side-by-side pic of Kermit drinking tea, with the same image painted on her lid on the right. “I’m here for this meme makeup trend,” says the caption. “God bless @thai_brows.”

https://twitter.com/_jsxo_/status/842147215606980608/photo/1

Since then, pretty much anyone who has ever had an affinity for memes and makeup has gotten in on the trend, cashing in on memes like confused Nick Young, hurt bae, crying Kim, SpongeBob, and more. We have no real commentary on these, other than the fact that we wish we were talented enough to be able to draw mini portraits on mini spaces of skin. But, you know, we’ve all got our talents, like eating an entire loaf of bread in one sitting. Whattup. Scroll down to see more makeup memes, and be prepared to watch this trend fade as fast as dying light.
