Tina Turner is engaged at 73 to musician Erwin Bach

North Korea may have developed a nuclear weapon small enough to fit on a missile. Jesus, take the wheel.

Tina Turner is engaged at 73 and looks fab doing it. A girl can dream.

Woman finds out she’s allergic to her new husband’s sperm. That isn’t even funny. If you laugh, you’re evil.

Women are still debating about whether its okay for a man to pay for the first date. Oh.


In Response: Simon Doonan’s ‘Bring back the Afro,’ isn’t a hairstyle. Its Hair.

Fashion stylist and TV personality, Simon Doonan, recently shared his newfound appreciation with what he describes as the “symbolic, regal and… glamorous,”
fashion trend of the 70s, that is due for a comeback: the Afro. I was going to write a lengthy response to his article, which I found to be very offensive, but after three days of bad first drafts, I figured Dodai Stewart summed it up best:

“Ultimately, the problem is that when Simon Doonan wants black people to “bring back the Afro,” he’s ignoring the fact that it never really went away, and also acting as though an Afro is an accessory you can pick up in a boutique, like a turban or some platform heels. It’s not. It’s not even just a hairstyle.  [The Misguided Campaign to “Bring Back the Afro.”]
