What are the snacks that see her celebrity guests though tough times?My new Guardian podcast, Comfort Eating, in which I talk to famous folk about their food secrets, is my dream opportunity for an honest chat. Interviewing celebrities is always a bit of a tussle: they arrive semi-spikily, bearing lists of things they don’t want to talk about, or they don’t want to be there at all, or...

Link Love: Holiday Medley 2019

It’s become tradition to ring out the Link Love year with a collection of style-related stories that didn’t quite fit into the themed Link Love posts we published throughout the year, but are worth sharing anyway.

If Black Women Don't Sell Magazines, Why Are They All Over The September Issues?

Beyoncé’s Vogue September 2018 cover was unprecedented and historic — perhaps not journalistically or visually, but certainly for what it represented for fashion publishing as a whole. “When I first started, 21 years ago, I was told that it was hard for me to get onto covers of magazines because Black people did not sell,” Beyonce told writer Clover Hope. “Clearly that has been proven a myth. Not only is an African-American on the cover of the most important month for Vogue, this is the first e...

The Weirdest Cult On The Internet Never Even Existed

In 2006, YouTube users had never seen the name “Logan Paul.” There was no TanaCon. Vlogging was still relatively unheard of as a hobby, let alone a career. In the first year or so since the platform’s launch, YouTube was mostly a place for cat videos and personal archives. Those who did venture to post what were initially called “video blogs” were the first of their kind, but none were as revolutionary as LonelyGirl15.On June 16, 2006, someone claiming to be a 16-year-old named Bree posted a vi...

Mariah Carey Bathes in Milk, but These Beauty Products Are Just as Good

Mariah Carey, she of the sizable vocal range and somehow even bigger closet, has a skincare secret. Would you expect the queen to use an ordinary cleanser? Of course not. The mistress of Christmas told The Guardian that she prefers to subdue her entire body in Santa's favorite beverage: milk. "I bathe in milk," she told the publication. "Yes, sometimes I use milk as a beauty treatment." When pressed for details, the singer played coy: "I don't want to give away all my secrets," she said, but ad...

I Finally 'Get' The Genius Of Azzedine Alaïa

I have a confession. I was shamefully and deeply unfashionably late to the cult of Azzedine Alaïa. The Tunisian designer — who arrived in France as a refugee in 1956 (during the Algerian War of Independence), and passed away there late last year — was a master couturier and singular fashion visionary. The very last true couturier, some say, because he continued to make most everything himself, from the patterns to the final touches.The problem is, I was a teenager in the 1990s. It was a time wh...

Amelia Earhart's Disappearance Might Be Even More Complicated Than We Thought

It’s been 80 years since she went missing, but Amelia Earhart is still making an impressive amount of headlines today. A week ago, researchers announced the discovery of a photo showing Earhart alive in Japan, allegedly after her plane had crashed.Since then, two pieces of new information have cast some doubt on the photo’s authenticity. One comes from a Japanese blogger, and the other comes from four border collies (yes, really).Tokyo-based blogger Kota Yamano told The Guardian it only took h...

Halsey Calls Iggy Azalea A "Moron" For Appropriating Black Culture

Halsey has some strong words for Iggy Azalea.The "Closer" singer called out the rapper in a new interview with The Guardian, accusing her of cultural appropriation. Azalea has been criticized for misrepresenting the hip-hop community as a white Australian woman, triggering beefs with Azealia Banks and Q-Tip's 2014 history lesson.Now it's Halsey's turn to join the fray.

Leaked Facebook Documents Reveal Disturbing Hypocrisies In How The Site Handles Sensitive Issues

Violence, hate speech, and racism are huge issues that Facebook has been contending with in recent years. While the social media platform has been fairly vocal about its efforts to combat these problems (including the recent announcement of its plans to hire an additional 3,000 moderators), there's been little insight into how it's fighting back. Until now.Yesterday, The Guardian published a scathing exposé, “Facebook Files,” which includes leaked guidelines for those moderators, the people who...

A Solid Case For Moving To A Tiny Italian Village, Never To Be Heard From Again

The tiny northern Italian village of Bormida has caught on to our widespread national malaise and decided to tempt us with an offer we have a hard time refusing.

Passengers coming to the U.S. from Europe may have to stow their electronic devices for good. According to Travel + Leisure, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security could expand its electronics ban to include all of Europe, which means travelers would have to place laptops, tablets, and anything larger than a smartphone into checked bags.The information comes via Alex Macheras, an aviation expert who predicts that an official ruling will come from the White House as soon as this week.

Hayley Williams Talks About Waiting To Quit Paramore "So Many Times"

On May 12, Paramore will release a new album. That's notable because After Laughter is their first in four years. It's also notable because Paramore nearly broke up countless times, Taylor York and Hayley Williams tell The Guardian. And that makes sense; the band reached peak popularity as a stalwart of the long-dead emo scene.“Two years ago I asked Taylor if we could start a new band," Williams told The Guardian. "I was so sick of this crap. I said we should just try something new, give it a n...

10 Actors You Had No Clue Were Irish
