What I Have Learned From Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift

Clare O'Neill

It's difficult to imagine this happening with men, (despite Bruno Mars' lame tweets to Ed Sheeran) because misandry doesn't surreptitiously pervade every corner of our culture. However, if it did, it would be appropriately discussed and not given the narrative of a 'cat-fight'. Hey, magazines, stop it.

Jenner and Gender Performativity

Rose Gibbs | Posted 24.07.2015 | UK Entertainment
Rose Gibbs

What perhaps is disappointing for many women is the extremely conservative way in which Jenner has manifest this identity. Appearing corseted on the front cover of Vanity Fair is hardly a portrayal of a liberated woman: instead it harkens back to a period where gender roles were more entrenched and punishing, for women in particular.

Live concert footage runs on loop, music blaring out across rooms filled with some of the band's jackets, vintage concert fly posters and an impressive display of the band's guitars (a particularly touching one being Paul's fireglow Rickenbacker 330 with 'I Am Nobody' scratched into it).

I had the Glastonbury experience a few weeks ago for the first time. I can check that one off my bucket list. No one told me to bring wellies; I thought - it's summer, why would it rain? I ended up impacted in mud having to beg passers-by to help me lift my feet.

#RHOBH S5, EP16 - Epic Fight in Amsterdam

Heidi Montag | Posted 22.07.2015 | UK Entertainment
Heidi Montag

So yes, these Housewives are no strangers to catfights, but the extreme volatility of the Amsterdam dinner definitely goes into the RHOBH Catfight Hall of Fame!! Lisa R. has officially become one of her soap opera characters; in her own words, she "lost her marbles" at this dinner! All the Housewives walk out upset -- but, shockingly, Kim and Lisa R. make up the next day, agreeing to move forward. Maybe fitting, since they were tied for the worst-behaved Housewives last night!

People Are So Worried About Offending People - We've Shot Ourselves in the Foot

Warwick Davis | Posted 20.07.2015 | UK Entertainment
Warwick Davis

The more people try not to speak about someone's disability or difference, the more they'll end up stumbling - and it's very obvious to that person what's going on. And they won't be offended! I don't mind somebody acknowledging my height or talking about dwarfism. To be honest, if they're curious or inquisitive, I'd rather we did chat about it.

Sure, there are other characters in the sophomore season of HBO's True Detective, but it's the battle between Detective Ray Velcoro (Colin Farrell) and his moustache that offers the most gut-wrenching relationship.

Would Channel 4's 'Humans' Be Good for Disabled People?

Simon Stevens | Posted 20.07.2015 | UK Entertainment
Simon Stevens

Do I really want someone or something that would simply agree with what I say, because they are programmed to, as oppose to having any emotional investment in the subject matter? Will I miss having a real person supporting me, who is able to read and understand my emotions in the context of their own?

Janet Jackson Is Your New Favourite Feminist Icon

Clare O'Neill | Posted 20.07.2015 | UK Entertainment
Clare O'Neill

Janet is often compared with her female peers, mostly Madonna or Beyoncé, as though we only need one awesome female pop star or something. While Madge and Bey have earned kudos for their respective passages in The Feminist Agenda, Janet's part remains relatively understated.

Pixar's 'Inside Out': The Importance of Being Sad

Ed Cripps | Posted 19.07.2015 | UK Entertainment
Ed Cripps

If this complexity sounds too smart for its own good, the cinematic equivalent of carting your child round the Tate when they've barely learnt to speak, it should be said Inside Out is funny and thrilling and wears a trim, throwaway savvy, the sort of cross-generational irreverence you get on The Simpsons or Sesame Street.

Mindfulness and Teens - Will They Ever Work Together?

Ruby Wax | Posted 17.07.2015 | UK Entertainment
Ruby Wax

Each generation thinks their parents have screwed up the world. The teen's job is to clean up his parent's mistakes and blame them for being selfish, greedy bastards who just think about themselves and are to blame for the world being a mess, the ice cap melting and the fact that there are no jobs or money because we've spent it all. (On these points they're right on all fronts).

Creativity and Age

Anthony Epes | Posted 17.07.2015 | UK Entertainment
Anthony Epes

I think there is this weird idea floating around that creativity is a young person's game, particularly certain genres of creativity (photography and music for sure). That somehow you are at your peak creatively in your twenties and thirties, and then it's downhill from then on. I think that's insane.
