Earlier this month, The Daily Mail reported that Jon Holmes had been 'sacked' from the Now Show because he was 'a white man'. He has since come out an...
Am I proud of being from Essex? No. I would love to be, and I fully support everyone reclaiming the label and using it positively, but I can't hand on heart say that I am proud. And that has nothing to do with me, or the lexicographers in charge of the dictionary, it's everyone who has falsely applied the stereotype.
On Thursday's episode of 'The Apprentice', candidate Jessica Cunningham found that out the hard way when her fellow candidates, the media and hundreds of people on Twitter questioned her professionalism, all because she cried... But showing emotion at work shouldn't be seen as a sign that you're incapable of doing your job.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has revealed she has a different opinion to another woman - that woman happens to be Beyoncé and that opinion happens to be about feminism. Cue headlines claiming Chimamanda has "distanced herself from" or "disagrees with" Beyoncé because, you know, if us gals aren't skipping arm-in-arm round the playground together we must be having a catfight. Either that or we're on our period.
If you've been living under a rock this past week, you might have missed the media frenzy surrounding Cheryl's rumoured pregnancy. Emphasis on the word 'rumoured' because, as always, it's pure speculation.
Amber has been forced to defend her reputation in a way that Depp has not, and this is just the latest instance of this happening. If she had instead chose to keep the cash and invest in a new private jet - or whatever it is that mega-rich celebrities are doing these days - then it shouldn't have mattered. But the fact of the matter is, if Amber had spent the money, or even just left it to sit in her bank account, the 'gold-digger' whispers would never have gone away.
Moana is a story of self-discovery following a kickass 16-year-old who goes on an adventure to find a banished god, instead of Prince Charming. Her ultimate aim is to save the world. It couldn't be more different from the children's films my generation grew up with.
Marion Bartoli is a Wimbledon champion. She's also a Central Saint Martins-trained fashion designer and a kick-ass sports commenter. But none of that matters, apparently, because all anyone wants to talk about is her weight.
As an entertainment journalist, I should not feel lucky to work somewhere that hasn't fuelled speculation over whether Amber is telling truth, or given a platform to Johnny's pals who, of course, find the idea that he could physically harm a woman ridiculous. But that's the position I've found myself in.
After four long years of campaigning, Holly Brockwell finally won her battle to be sterilised. On Friday the 30-year-old underwent an NHS operation that will mean she can no longer become pregnant. As a woman who has known for years that she doesn't want to have children, Holly couldn't be happier.
A lot of titles are still following the same formula that the women's magazine should be strictly for women about issues that concern women only - as if such things exist. This is divisive. But if change is to come about, dialogue between everyone is necessary.
I've never been one to read Celebrity weekly magazines or the infamous Sidebar Of Shame (unless for work purposes, obvs), but the coverage of Teigen's pregnancy and existence since giving birth to baby Luna has been unavoidable and totally infuriating.
In the 80s and 90s, Madonna established herself as an unapologetically strong, female role model. She pushed the boundaries of sexuality and femininity to become the ultimate sex symbol and global superstar. Now, she's expected to revoke all that, because society can't handle it when women age. We like our older women invisible and devoid of sexuality.
Certain newspapers are running stories about the Duchess of Cambridge's feet, on display during her tour of India. One has even gone so far as to describe them as: "Corns, clawed toes, bunions and fallen arches."
Schumer aside, I'd like to know why Glamour decided to have an issue to celebrate plus size women in the first place. Is it making up for (decades of) lost time? Having an entire issue to plus size women only serves to highlight how exclusive the magazine is the other 11 months of the year - and has been every year since it first launched in 1939.
Despite inroads with the closing of 'lad's mags' FHM and ZOO last year, the (albeit reluctant) suspension of Page 3 and Katherine Viner's editorship at The Guardian, print media, it seems, is still overtly dominated by men.
