Dame Helen Mirren loves her a FEISTY LADY!

The legendary actress has praised what she terms “shameless women” who are redefining beauty, citing Pussy Riot and Kim Kardashian as role models who have rejected labels such as slut and embraced bigger body shapes. And yeah, I agree- though it’s weird to wrap my head around Pussy Riot and Kim K being in the same “activist” category. HELEN, EXPLAIN!

The Oscar-winning actor said women had been pressured into conforming to demure stereotypes throughout the 20th century, but many contemporary celebrities took pleasure in breaking taboos.

“When I was growing up, it was thought to be unbelievably sluttish to even have a bra strap showing,” Mirren said. “Everything was about women conforming. I love shameless women. Shameless and proud!”

Mirren, 70, said she was happy to be finally “relieved of the whole sex-symbol tag” but was inspired by women who had not been “controlled by being shamed”.

“I love women who have claimed their own bodies: Madonna, Chrissie Hynde, Joan Jett, Bonnie Raitt. I love Pussy Riot more than anything in the world.

“They all raise their middle fingers to this epithet of ‘slut’. They wear what they want to wear, behave as they want to behave.’”

Mirren said the reality TV star’s famous backside had been positive for young women and body confidence.

“I’m not into the Kardashians, it’s a phenomenon I just don’t find interesting, but – and this is the big word: B-U-T-T – it’s wonderful that you’re allowed to have a butt nowadays,” she told the Sunday Telegraph Magazine.

“Thanks to Madame Kardashian, and before her, J-Lo. We’re also allowed to have thighs now, which is great too. It’s very positive.”

Mirren is the second high-profile Brit to praise Kardashian in recent weeks, after former Labour deputy leader Harriet Harman said the Kardashian women’s message was that “they are kind of going to make their own decisions, make their own way in the world”.

“There’s a kind of bravery and a pioneering – oh my God, what am I saying here? – a pioneering spirit to them,” Harman said.

I KNOW. WHAT IS EVERYBODY SAYING? Again, I think there’s some truth to it, but man, it’s weird to hear such respected women showing sincere reverence for the botox-y, reality-tv peddling, lycra-wearing Kardashi-klan. Such is the world we live in?

Iggy Azalea’s Fiance Seems Like A Winner

Iggy Azalea And Nick Young Are Engaged!

And he messed with the wrong woman!

The Los Angeles Lakers are looking into an accusation that two players-Nick Young and Jordan Clarkson- verbally harassed a mother and daughter in Los Angeles on Sunday night. You know Nick young as being Iggy Azalea‘s fiance, and while he seemed like a loving supportive dude, I hear this and I’m like, GROSS.

Alexis Jones says a Jeep full of young men pulled up alongside her vehicle while she was with her mom, and began to make “vulgar, sexual gestures” and comments to them. Turns out, Jones isn’t the woman you wanna mess with: she’s the founder of ProtectHer, a nonprofit focused on sexual assault and domestic violence within college and professional sports. Bad luck for Nick and Jordan.

Jones had the wherewithal to record the incident on her phone, and said that her 68-year-old mother was brought to tears by the whole ordeal. Then, she posted an image to instagram on Sunday, where you can clearly see Nick and Jordan:

The caption read: “I pray these pics go viral because THIS is the problem with little boys. Five minutes ago, at the intersection of Melrose and La Bre here in LA, a jeep of four boys pulled up at a red light and started yelling and making the most disgustingly vulgar gestures at my mom and me. I rarely “rant” about things but this is the f%+#ing problem and the reason I’ve now dedicated my life to educating young men about respect, not just for women but for everyone. I’m angry. I’m insulted. I’m hurt. They were laughing hysterically until they realized I was filming them and immediately they panicked like the cowards they are. Thank you to all the real men out there who would never treat a mother and daughter that way… Speaking of, I’d love for this to make it back to their mothers!!! Help me find who these guys are!!! Let’s see the power of social media and hold them accountable. I’d LOVE to have a candid conversation with them about sexual harassment not simply to shame them, but to understand their mentality so we can better educate young men to be respectful in the future.”

Well said, Alexis! The NBA is looking into the matter, and while Nick Young posted a flimsy rebuttal (that he since deleted) I think this is an amazing wake up call to treat everyone with respect and dignity.

What do YOU think about this situation?

Helen Mirren Opposes Men Putting Their Arms Around Women. WHY?

Madonna at The 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards in LA

Helen Mirren is my feminist dream queen!

Following up on previous comments about sexism in the film industry by Emma Thompson, Helen made a controversial remark, saying that she thinks it’s “sexist” for men to put their arms around their girlfriends, as it suggests ownership over the female.

VERY interesting. She said:

“It annoys me when I see men with an arm slung around their girlfriend’s shoulders. It’s like ownership. Of course, when you’re young, you want the guy to take your hand and look after you.”

The 70-year-old added:

“When I see girls being leaned on, I want to say, ‘Tell him to get his damned arm off your shoulder’.”

Helen, your words impress me. But do I entirely agree? Hard to say. It’s AWFULLY warm in the arms of my hot, hot boyfriend.

What do YOU think of her statement?

Miley Cyrus Is Okay Being Alone

Miley Cyrus Is Dating Patrick Schwarzenegger Now

Oh, Miley. The lady (used loosely) doth protest too much!

It feels like Miley Cyrus is always talking about dating- and has been in a couple high profile relationships including being engaged to Liam Hemsworth and her past thing with Patrick Schwarzenegger. 

But she wants you to know that she’s TOTALLY cool with being alone, y’all!

“It has a lot to do with being a feminist, but I’m finally OK with being alone. I think that’s something we have to talk about more: that you can be alone.”

I want to hear more about this feminism thing, but way to throw your mother under the bus, Miley. She goes on to say:

“There are times in my life where I’ve had boyfriends or girlfriends. And there are times where I just love being with myself and don’t want to give part of myself away to someone else. I think that’s a new freedom for women, especially. I don’t know that my mother would have been able to be 22 and secure in being alone.”


The actress recently hinted at her bisexuality and loves to be outspoken on Le social media, but we’ll see how long this “single and strong” phase lasts!
