Ryan Lochte Is An American Hero?

Ryan Lochte Is An American Hero?

By now you have probably heard about how Ryan Lochte lied out of his liar hole about getting robbed at gun point during the Olympics in Rio. Now that he has had the opportunity to once again bring shame upon our country dance his way to the Mirror Ball trophy on “Dancing With The Stars,” one of his co-stars is speaking out in his defense.

Apparently there were people at the DWTS opening night show who were protesting Lochte’s appearance on the hit dancing competition. The protesters wore anti Lochte t-shirts and wanted to rush the stage after Lochte performed his first dance with his professional dance partner Cheryl Burke.

With regard to the kerfuffle, rapper turned TV host Vanilla Ice said, “The guy’s an American hero. Get over the story. It doesn’t matter. And you know what, the guy that came out here with the shirt – never cater to a hater, just say later.”

Former governor of Texas Rick Perry had this to say about Lochte’s protesters: “This ain’t the place for that, man. If you want to protest, go find yourself someplace. Don’t come and disrupt a really fun time for America. This isn’t a place to bring your politics; this isn’t a place to bring anything other than your joy of living and joy of dancing.”

Amber Rose said that Lochte “didn’t deserve that. It was his moment to shine, and it was really messed up.”

Jana Kramer said, “I just want America to see the Ryan that we’ve gotten to know, because he’s a really, really good dude. We all make mistakes.”

Professional dancer Derek Hough added, “I actually came out and said, ‘You all need to leave because this is our home, this is our house. This is a positive place, we don’t need that here, so you just need to leave.'”

And just like that, Ryan Lochte has a whole crew of people sticking up for him. Do you agree that the protesters need to take their antics elsewhere? Or should they have been allowed to voice their opinion over the travesty that has become synonymous with Ryan Lochte’s name at the Olympics?

Is Ryan Lochte an American hero just because Vanilla Ice says so? What he did was definitely bone-headed, but how long are we going to tear him down because of it? Thoughts?

Taylor Swift Was Not Having Tom Hiddleston’s Thirstiness

Taylor Swift & Tom Hiddleston Touch Down At Gold Coast Airport In Australia

Are you doing okay after the great Taylor Swift/Tom Hiddleston breakup of Fall 2016?

I know, nobody really cares except 12 year old fans. The rest of us were like, “well, YEAH.” Anyhow, a couple outlets got tipped off with enough time to preview the Team Swift side of things in a Daily Mail story on Monday. And yesterday we got Us Weekly’s quotes. You know them:  She was the one to put the brakes on the relationship,” a source insisted. “Tom wanted the relationship to be more public than she was comfortable with. Taylor knew the backlash that comes with public displays of affection but Tom didn’t listen to her concerns when she brought them up.” Well, the E! News’ source basically said a variation on Us Weekly’s quotes:

“Taylor felt he wanted to take the relationship to be too public,” a source close to the situation tells us, “and she was not happy about it and thought it was too much publicity.”

(Via E! News)

It’s true, Tom did seem thirsty. But then, I think he saw how it looked, a 35-year-old man in a “I Heart T.S.” tank top.  And Taylor couldn’t help herself from stepping out yesterday for some I’m-Single-and-I-Have-Big-Boobs-Now photos in New York. Check it out here.

Amber Rose: “Supermodels We See Represent 5 Or 3 Percent Of Women.”

Screen Shot 2016-08-24 at 8.44.24 AM

Amber Rose has been EVERYWHERE lately: she’s competing on Dancing with the Stars, she’s got her VH1 talk show, and now she’s got a beauty collaboration with Estee Lauder. Amber chatted with NY Mag about the collaboration called Flirt, and even’s shes a little surprised they wanted to work with her. You can read the full piece here. Some highlights:

How she paired up with Estee Lauder: “[Estée Lauder] came to my house to have a meeting, and I’ve always looked at them as a conservative company. But they came for a full meeting and were like, Amber, we love you, we love your SlutWalk, your tattoos, and your bald head. I was like, What? Are you sure? They just loved my look and my feminism, my Amber Rose foundation, and my tattoos. I’ve been waiting for a company to get me, and they got me. We came out with the last applicator and hopefully a few more things.”

The beauty myth: “People have to realize that the supermodels we see represent 5 percent or 3 percent of women in the world. It’s not realistic. It’s very realistic to have cellulite and saggy boobs — it’s part of just being a human. It’s something I try to put out with my SlutWalk. There’s no body-shaming. And it really is very difficult. When you see these images, you think I don’t look like that. Embrace the skin that you are in. If you really do want to change, put your mind to it. Try to work out and eat better. I love cheeseburgers and tacos. Those are my two favorite things. I’ll probably never have the perfect body and I’m okay with that. As a celebrity now, I embrace it and I embrace my curves. I have a platform to help other women embrace it as well.

Feminism & her thoughts on the quote “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women”: “Well, I think that’s a bit extreme. Everything comes with education. As a society, we’ve been programmed not to be feminist and put the man first — stay at home, cook, clean, and be the girl that society told us to be. You have to talk to women and they have to do whatever makes them happy. If it is that, then that’s fine as well. I mean, there are so many girls and celebrity women that won’t help me with SlutWalk. It’s a simple google to figure out what it is, but they don’t want to take the time to do it. I think it’s because their husbands or boyfriends will think they’re crazy. How could you not want to help me? But I know that inevitably, hopefully, they’ll come around and understand what they are doing. It’s not the end. It’s all about learning.

When did Amber Rose becomes so articulate about women’s issues? She’s right about so much stuff, and really cultivated her sense of self to be a feminist icon. Wait, did I just say that? Yeah, I did. DAMN.

This Is Amber Rose’s “Number.”

Screen Shot 2016-08-31 at 8.58.42 AM

Amber Rose has a new VH1 talk show and she’s been doing a good job of keeping up the level of “controversy,” probably better (in my opinion) than Kocktails with Khloe. She doesn’t shy away from topics and she’s definitely pushing her issues, like de-stigmatizing women’s sexuality with her Slut Walks, etc. As she talks more about how there should be equality between men and women for sexual acceptance, which is awesome. I kinda dig Amber, especially because she’s politicizing herself and not just being a pretty, sexy reality face. In her latest episode, Amber talks about how men view women who have varied sex lives, and how much internalized sexism there is when men get with women who are more experienced sexually. Some quotes:

She’s not going to count: “I’m 32-years-old, I’ve been around the block a few times. I’m not going to sit there and count. Especially all the times I said he could put the head in, then take it out, does that count? Because I used to be so good for that, I was the queen of that.”

Women should be allowed to have side pieces too: “First question: Why are men allowed to have mistresses, and why aren’t women allowed to have … whatever the f–k — there’s not even a word for it! We can’t even have, like — is it, like, ‘side d–k,’ right? I think we coined that.”

How men get praised for having mistresses: “We [women] are smart enough to not let the men find out, I feel like guys get so sloppy. Women have an intuition, if he lies we know. … Sometimes we’re in denial, like, ‘He wouldn’t do that to me,’ but at the same time we like, ‘Bitch, I know he did that.’”

So her number is really…no number. She doesn’t think it matters and doesn’t think it should matter to us, either. And, I agree. And it reminds me of when I watched What’s Your Number with my mom and almost died of shame (also, it was a HORRIBLY sexist movie. But also, mom).
