5 Celebrities Who Have Misunderstood Feminism | Betches

Feminism is, at its core, a relatively simple concept. Merriam-Webster GenForward, less than 20% of participants belonging to any racial or ethnic group self-identify as feminist, with most saying they “don’t identify as a traditional feminist, but support women’s rights and equality.” This cognitive dissonance is even more glaring when we look at celebrities’ interpretations of the term. Given their power and influence, it also makes it that much more disappointing. Below are five famous women who at one point or another have refused to identify as feminist, despite very clearly supporting feminist ideas. Celebrities—they’re just 1.

Gina Rodriguez Is In Big Trouble For Being Racist On Instagram | Betches

Even after years of covering celebrities being complete idiots and called her out for being anti-black after she made false claims about Latinx women being paid more than black women. In a Net-a-Porter panel, she said “black women get paid more than Asian women, Asian women get paid more than Latina women, and it’s, like, a very scary space to step into.” This isn’t true in the general workplace, but it’s especially untrue in Hollywood, where Sofia Vergara has been the highest-paid woman on TV for nearly a decade. Uh, yikes. She clarified her position in a

Photoshop Fail Of The Week: The Subtle Art Of Facetune | Betches

The strangest thing to me about these Photoshop Fails and pretend they’re the rich and famous. But most of these people are already way above the societal standard for beauty. They’re the most beautiful, most done-up, in the best shape, and thinnest people we have. They set the standard for everything we are supposed to aspire to look like—for better or for worse. Really, the people most guilty of altering their images are the people that need it the least. So what gives? Why are they still doing it, and thereby perpetuating this impossible game of catch-up for all of us? Have we just reached a point in societal pressure that no one is good enough, It was such an …

Why Jameela Jamil Is Getting Trolled On Twitter RN | Betches

If you’ve been on the internet in the last couple days, you’ve probably noticed that there’s been a lot of talk about George W. Bush. Funny that our current President is currently in the middle of Jameela Jamil, star of The Good Place and outspoken advocate for a more honest culture around wellness, initially voiced her support for Ellen. But then she backtracked, tweeting that she had just learned about the specifics of George W. Bush’s time as President, and was (maybe) changing her mind. Ooooof learning today about the full extent of Bush’s heinous presidency… we weren’t taught much about him at school, we just heard he was stupid…(we were dealing with our own epic nightmare of a prime minister back …

If You Hated VSCO Girls, You Need To Know About E-Boys | Betches

Hello, and welcome back to another edition of “Dylan Explains Gen-Z.” In the past couple months I’ve tackled important topics like VSCO girls, and we’ve all learned a lot together. Do you find yourself sksksking in your daily life? Yeah, that’s on me, and I’m really sorry. But we’re not done yet. While you’ve probably finally wrapped your mind around the fact that VSCO girls are pretty much just 90s girls with metal straws, today we’re diving into another Gen-Z phenomenon that you’ll be making memes about in no time: E-boys. While VSCO girls are all about pastel, beachy vibes, E-boys (and the corresponding E-girls) are basically a 2019 equivalent of goth kids and emo kids. The “E” actually stands …

Instagram Is Getting Rid Of The Following Tab | Betches

Well, folks, it’s the end of an era. You know how you’d stalk people on Instagram? And I don’t just mean going years back through their posts. I’m talking about the good ol’ “following” tab, where you could see what people you follow were liking. Yeah, you’d better get your one last stalk of your boyfriend’s sketchy IG activity in, because Buzzfeed reports that the following activity tab is going away. But how will I know if my boyfriend is following thirst traps?! Buzzfeed claims that now that the following tab is going away, ” it’s likely few people will notice it’s gone.” And let me just say, I have a feeling that statement could not be further from the truth! Vishal …

All The Best Times Kelly Ripa Trolled Her Children On IG | Betches

We love celebrities who don’t act fake on social media, so naturally Kelly Ripa is one of our faves. When not publicly thirsting over her husband, she can be seen trolling the sh*t out of her kids, which we always appreciate. Like, sure your kids are the light of your life and whatever, but what fun is being a parent if you can’t rag on your kids a little? I started taking note of Kelly’s trolling  and probably wanted to claw her own eyes out. Now, I know you’re thinking that’s bad, but not “time to finally file the paperwork and get emancipated from these lunatics” bad, mainly because it was an accident. But not only did Lola walk in …

This Is Why Kylie Jenner And Travis Scott Broke Up | Betches

It feels like it’s been simultaneously 30 minutes and 84 years since Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott announced their split, though neither of those time frames are accurate. Just one day after the news that Kylie and Travis broke up, Kylie was spotted hanging out with her ex Tyga. Kris Jenner may work hard, but Kylie works quickly. Initially, we didn’t know the reason behind the split, and sources were only reporting that the two had decided to step away for a bit. Now, TMZ is claiming to know why Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott broke up, and they seem, in a word, like total bullsh*t. Sources apparently told TMZ that “their decision to break things off came weeks ago, following a very long …

You’ll Die When You See Jessica Alba’s Latest #Spon Fail | Betches

I was minding my own business last night, watching old clips of The View and scrolling Instagram, when a hot tip popped up in my DMs. One of my Insta-BFFs Alex (@lexniko, she’s f*cking hilarious) sent me a side-by-side that almost made me fall out of my chair. It’s just…so stupid. Our beloved Jessica Alba, actress, model, and skin care mogul, made a hilarious mistake in her latest sponsored post, and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since. Here’s the post in question: View this post on Instagram buy some of the products! (I definitely won’t, but she doesn’t need to know that.) No, to spot the issue with this photo, we have to go back in time, all the way to …

The 4 Most Ridiculous Celebrity Lawsuits | Betches

 (I’m obviously using the term “celebrity” very liberally here), and she’s not the only one that’s run outside the bounds of the law—right, FelicityCelebrities Who Were Sued For Using Paparazzi Shots Of Themselves call the paparazzi on themselves. You didn’t think the paps got those close-up photos of a celebrity couple’s romantic Rhode Island beach stroll because they just happened to be hanging out there, did you? Ohhh, you did? That’s so cute. Celebs also like to use those pap photos they’re so against on their own social media, for the times when I guess the 3,000 selfies on their camera roll just suffice. Unfortunately this is actually illegal, because the celebrities don’t own those photosOver the past few years, …

So uh, I guess these are spoilers for Peter’s season of The Bachelor, but not really. Read at your own risk!

Photoshop Fail Of The Week: You Just Can’t Trust Jenny McCarthy | Betches

So in the interest of full disclosure, my favorite breakup movie ever is the work of Jenny McCarthy. It’s called Dirty Love and it’s absolutely trash. And I love it, I really do. I make everyone I know watch it. And it was written by and stars Jenny. It’s one of the funniest movies ever, especially if you’re going through a breakup. However, Jenny then decided to ruin my love for her by becoming a very vocal, dumbass anti-vaxxer. Guys, I love Dirty Love, but I’m pretty certain that bitch is not a doctor. The Playboy Mansion doesn’t even have a medical school. If she’s who you consult for medical advice, I’m surprised you’re literate enough to even read this article. …

Jenna Dewan Is Pregnant With Someone Who’s Not Channing Tatum | Betches

People love to say that celebrities are just like us, but they’re just not. Sure, they go to the grocery store and walk their dogs like us, but that’s about it. When it comes to their personal lives and relationships, they live in a completely different world. Case in point: today, Jenna Dewan announced announced their separation with a note that looked like it was an invitation to your great-aunt’s 80th. It was the end of an era, and as a huge fan of the movie Step Up, I was personally upset. But whatever, things happen. Grown-ups don’t get along sometimes (hi, mom and dad), and that’s okay. So that was April 2018, but Jenna Dewan didn’t actually file for divorce until October …
