Role model i dont really like you
Anika Reed USA TODAY Published 3:46 PM EST Dec 5, 2018 Jessica Simpson clapped back at Natalie Portman for a comment she made about a photoshoot Simpson did in the '90s. In an interview with USA TODAY about her new movie, "Vox Lux," Portman discussed having Madonna as her role model. “I felt really lucky to have her as a little kid, because I saw someone who was brazen and disobedient and provocative and trying to mess with people and always changing – I thought it was a great thing to see in a woman growing up,” she said. She then switched gears to talk about the virgin/vixen paradigms in pop music in the late 1990s and early 2000s, calling out Simpson. "I remember being a teenager, and there was Jessica Simpson on the cover of a magazine saying ‘I’m a virgin’ while wearing a bikini, and I was confused," Portman said to USA TODAY. "Like, I don’t know what this is trying to tell me as a woman, as a girl." Simpson released … [Read more...] about Jessica Simpson slams Natalie Portman: I don’t ‘shame other women’
Facebook’s new gadgets, Portal and Portal Plus, are meant to bring people closer together. So we — Mike Isaac and Farhad Manjoo, two technology writers for The New York Times — took the $199 and $349 devices for a test run over the last week to see if they could make us feel more connected to each other. We both installed the Portal, which started shipping on Thursday, in our homes (our bedrooms, to be exact). The devices are video-calling machines that people can use to talk through a screen to other Facebook users. They have a 12-megapixel camera with high-definition video and artificial intelligence software; the camera follows people about as they move around. The Portal has raised some privacy concerns, especially since Facebook has been scrutinized for how much information it already has on users. Were we worried about what these always-on devices might collect on us? Here’s how it played out. Mike: Why, hello, Farhad! It’s been a while since we last … [Read more...] about We tried Facebook’s new Portal device (so you don’t have to)
Syracuse, N.Y. -- When Indiana fired Felisha Legette-Jack as its head women's basketball coach in 2012, the dismissal deflated her and nearly defeated her. Nobody would hire her. The former Nottingham High School and Syracuse University star had worked as a college basketball assistant for more than a dozen years and as the head coach of two different programs for 10 more. She "put my name in for every job" -- from high majors to Carolina-based High Point, Wofford and Gardner Webb. She retreated to the house she'd built in Charlotte and learned UNC Charlotte was looking for an assistant coach. She told them she'd volunteer. Nobody called back. "No one would hire me as an assistant coach," she said. "Not one job." So Legette-Jack, armed with her passion, her energy and her belief that she was put on Earth to mentor and guide young people, considered a career change. She would channel the strength of her personality to motivate others as a life coach. If no women's basketball … [Read more...] about Felisha Legette-Jack making most of 2nd chance many women coaches don’t get
It appears Allen’s never shied away from a tough question; but, when I speak with her by phone ahead of this weekend’s show, I purposely try to ask about the most mundane, least scandalous thing she’s not yet revealed about herself.“What do people not know about me guys? I’m with two friends in the car,” she says, and there’s a lightness in her voice as she chats casually with her pals. Something inaudible is said that elicits laughter and she returns with, “I don’t know,…I like baths? And scented candles.” There’s more laughter now and I regretfully inform her that the world already knows this from a bit she did for Sali Hughes’ “In the Bathroom” video series. “Then somebody knows it already!” she replies. “Okay, so then, I make a really good omelet.”Everyone knows you can’t make one of those without breaking a few eggs. We circle back to the tumultuous years … [Read more...] about In Search of the Most Mundane Thing You Don’t Know About Lily Allen
