It is with a degree of trepidation that I find myself coming to the defence of a woman who many believe is indefensible. In any case, under normal circumstances she can more than speak for herself.

Who Was The Wolf of Wall Street, Really? We're Still None The Wiser

'The Wolf of Wall Street' is, by many standards, a good film. Sure, it follows all of the predictable plot beats that any given "money and drugs in the Eighties" flick entails, but it makes up for its lack of narrative surprises with its strong central performances and highly stylised depictions of excess.

Born on this day, 24 January 1941, Neil Diamond, singer-songwriter. There's something very nice and warm about Neil Diamond - he's like an old friend, a comfy pair of slippers, he's your favourite uncle. You see, I'm saying all this and I've never even met the guy. But reading about him confirms my thoughts.

Now I find myself flying to Innsbruck, Austria to film a TV show competing in winter sports. Almost a full circle of sorts.... just without the dancing. Unless I can dance on skis, which would be incredibly difficult! But even having the opportunity to compete with a five-time Olympic Gold Medalist is pretty awesome.

Brave's glorious Princess Merida walked that talk by rejecting the idea that a bunch of strangers should compete with each other to marry her. Instead, she competed with them to win her independence. Which she did. Go Merida. That's some impressive feminist ideology right there.

Don't Call Lena Dunham a Genius

Ultimately the biggest problem with invoking that word is that it allows the media and us to pop her up onto the pedestal entitled "Woman Describing the Modern Female Experience" then return to our regular lives. We don't have to listen to other women with alternative experiences because, look, we've already got that one over there and see how much we idolise her?

We are lucky as women that in this day and age it isn't as hard as it used to be to make a strong stand in business and high posts... With regards to Luisa, some would say that she uses the title of businesswoman to be taken seriously but use still her sexuality to become popular. Is this really the right way to go?

Like nearly all of the 1970s rockers, Ted Nugent built his reputation through years of hard touring, "We played 300 concerts a year, but we didn't make any money. We could pay expenses, keep good speakers in the amps and share hotel rooms. It was tough, but that didn't matter, I'm a hunter I'll sleep in the woods."
