You've Got This: 5 Signs That You've Actually Got Your Ish Together

Adulting is hard, but you're actually doing better than you think. View the original article to see embedded media. I've been thinking a lot this week about this viral article on millennial burnout (shout out to my girl Anne Helen Petersen), reflecting on my experience as an adult and how it resembles the millennial condition. I've long felt that millennials (and Gen Z-ers) have gotten a bad rap for being entitled grade-grubbers (@ me next time, AHP) who eat tide pods, dab inappropriately, and s...

The rise of (societal) resilience tech

If you follow millennials on Twitter (and god help you), then you know that Anne Helen Petersen’s piece this past weekend “How Millennials Became The Burnout Generation” struck a deep chord for many. It’s longform and detailed, but Petersen’s primary thesis is that my generation has been dumped into one of the worst moments for economic and social mobility in recent memory (global financial crisis, etc.), which has led us to massively over-optimize our lives to try to extract any value we can. B...

Armie Hammer Decided To Reignite His Twitter Feud With That Buzzfeed Writer For Some Reason…

How did he not learn his lesson from last time? Just a month after reactivating his Twitter account, Armie Hammer has once again jumped into the "toxic environment" of impulsively responding to people who said "something stupid" from which he previously said he'd escaped! And unlike last time, we really can't see his side of things! Video: Armie & Timothée Chalamet Reunite In Italy For A Dance Party!

Musicians, fans share memories of Dolores O’Riordan, The Cranberries singer who died suddenly

Dolores O’Riordan, 46-year-old lead singer of the rock band The Cranberries died suddenly on Monday in London, the Associated Press reported.

We are crushed to hear the news about the passing of Dolores O’Riordan. Our thoughts go out to he...

Iconography and the Yammering Haters: a Review of Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do" Video

As someone who remembers the flowering of the music video during the 1980s with its ascendance of figures like Madonna and Michael Jackson as they newly explored the form, I usually don't have much to say about the dull marketing calculations of recent music videos. A typical example would be Katy Perry's recent "Swish Swish," a forgettable video that alludes to Space Jam (1996) to not much effect.  Full of celebrity cameros, sight gags, and grotesquerie, "Swish Swish" exemplifies the contempora...

What It Really Means When Celebrities Declare Themselves Feminists

In the chaotic circus of Donald Trump's America, even seemingly harmless cultural gestures can spark a politics-crazed Tweetstorm (see the alt-right tumult currently embroiling Vogue 's subversive September cover). It's a debate over the responsibility of celebrities to help define our wider values that's been brewing since well-before last year's surreal election. But in a culture set aflame by Trump's viscerally anti-immigrant, anti-abortion rhetoric, the stakes seem suddenly much higher — es...

We Are Not Hysterical: 18 Strong Female Voices You Should Read

For every positive attribute a woman may possess ― strength, persistence, decisiveness ― there seems to be a popularly used synonym that casts the same quality in a negative light. Women who lead may be painted as curt, loud or cold ― or, worst of all, hysterical. To combat this message, the staff at New York City’s Strand Book Store compiled a list of strong female voices who, like Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), refuse to be silenced.  Writes Strand: “On the heels of yet another female U....

The June Click List: R29 Entertainment Editors' Picks For The Month

We're pretty sure all of those "The Future Is Female" T-shirts and posters were specifically referring to the month of June 2017. Just a few of the femme-powered offerings coming up over the next 30 days: Wonder Woman, Orange Is the New Black, Lorde's new album, Sofia Coppola's The Beguiled, Roxane Gay's new book, and more Queen Sugar. Sure, we would have loved to have a woman president inaugurated this year, but the rise of such women-driven entertainment is definitely worth celebrating.Plus, ...

Here's What Twitter Has To Say About Mel Gibson At The Oscars

It's long been a habit of Oscars hosts to gently (and sometimes not-so-gently) razz on the actors and actresses in the audience. The jokes are funny, and their reactions are priceless, but there's one particular attendee at tonight's Academy Awards that twitter is not interested in seeing: Mel Gibson.Gibson, who is nominated for best director for Hacksaw Ridge, has been notoriously racist, homophobic, anti-semitic, and misogynistic his whole career, yet is continuously given a pass by his Holly...

"There was a moment, sometime between 2008 and 2010, when a woman’s insides — her exploits, her eating habits, her feelings, her sex life — became a lucrative internet product."

"Women, of course, have been writing about such things for years, including on the internet, but commodifying that writing had proven fraught. Marketing the entirety of the self through a personal blog — like Heather Armstrong’s Dooce, or Emily Gould’s iteration of Gawker — led to writer burnout and reader disillusionment. A better, more sustainable way to commodify the self was to do so piecemeal. For female authors, this meant writing personal essays on the most sensational slivers of their li...

People Cannot Get Over The Way Trump Described Frederick Douglass

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump gave a televised speech in honor of Black History Month. Unsurprisingly, he noted several celebrated black American historical figures, including Martin Luther King Jr, Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks and Frederick Douglass. But people immediately noticed that something about his description of Douglass — a man who escaped slavery to become an acclaimed author, abolitionist and civil rights activist — was a little uh, off. Trump just described Frederick Douglass ...

Donald Trump's Pop Culture Cabinet

President-elect Donald Trump just met with another peculiar celebrity figure on the heels of his very public meeting with Kanye West. According to multiple sources, Trump sat down with Anna Wintour to discuss... who knows? Wintour was a vocal Hillary Clinton supporter during the election, but recently changed lanes and now shows inklings of support for Trump. She even recently apologized for publicly critiquing him.It feels like Trump is launching his own fashion line instead of building a poli...

A Guide To The Best Tim Kaine Dad Jokes Twitter Has To Offer

The internet has decided this year that Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) is basically the human embodiment of a dad joke ― and Kaine, like any good dad, is embracing the role. He’s goofy. He has a perfect dad bod. He even carries not one, not two, but four harmonicas with him, because Tim Kaine is seriously considering putting together a Blues Traveler cover band and, folks, you just never know. Admittedly, that joke is not that funny, but we’ve scoured the internet looking for Tim Kaine dad jokes that a...

20 New Books You'll Need For Your Shelf In Fall 2016

Books ― in the fall. Who knew? We did. Have a read.   The Story of a Brief Marriage by Anuk Arudpragasam When we discuss the difficulties of marriage, we take for granted that many American relationships at least have the benefit of a solid foundation of basic needs: shelter, food and, to an extent, safety. The Story of a Brief Marriage strips a relationship of those comforts, speaking to something more essential shared between two humans. Protagonist Dinesh is living in an evacuee camp,...

Congresswoman Trolls Melania Trump By Wearing Her Dress To DNC

Melania Trump’s billowy white dress was perhaps the second-biggest piece of news to come out of her partially plagiarized Republican National Convention speech last week. In fact, people were so enchanted with the former model and fashion designer’s $2,190 off-white Roksanda “Margot” dress that it sold out less than an hour after her speech. Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-Ohio) was apparently one of the lucky few people to get her hands on the outfit, and, in what has to go down as one of the sickest poli...

Reactions to the All-Female Ghostbusters Trailer Prove It'll Be the Most Polarizing Movie of the Year

Usually, a major movie's first big trailer generates one of two reactions—passionate enthusiasm or shrugging indifference. That's certainly not the case with the new Ghostbusters film.  Some, including myself, might see it as a movie that promises a mix of highs (Kristin Wiig and Kate McKinnon in perfectly cast roles) and lows (derivative gags and the only black character being a cringeworthy trope of sass and street smarts). But such middle-of-the-road perspectives are in short suppl...

And whatever happens within those systems, I don’t think they can quite eradicate the thing that happens inside when a person hears what she recognizes as the truth.
