Oh Good, Iggy Azalea Thinks She’s A Victim of Racism

Screen Shot 2016-04-27 at 12.30.46 PM

I thought Iggy Azalea was going to cool it with the twitter beefing?

Okay, who thought that when Beyonce dropped the lyric “you better call Becky with the good hair” on Saturday night during HBO’s Lemonade, that Iggy would take issue? I guess I should have…? When Bey called out “Becky with the Good Hair” Iggy kept that in her little brain and on Monday night, one of her “fans” called her a racist and that’s when Iggy sort of had a meltdown, because… SHE’S A VICTIM OF RACISM, TOO. WHY?

Because people have called her Becky. Yep.

First, she responded by tweeting: “girl BYE. do you know how many time ppl have called me BECKY? it didnt have any kind of positive intention behind it. dont start. generalizing ANY race by calling them one sterotypical name for said race. i personally dont think is very cool, the end.” To which she got some replies, which you can read here.

BASICALLY, this is textbook white fragility, in that Iggy Azalea is a culturally appropriating, racially insensitive white Australian who honestly thinks she too is a victim of racism. For being called Becky. Gag me.

Ruby Rose Struggles With Depression

Screen Shot 2016-04-04 at 11.09.35 PM

You’d never know it from these pictures…

Ruby Rose opened up about her past battles with depression in an Instagram post over the weekend, and honestly this comes as a surprise to me. The Orange Is The New Black star seems super well-adjusted, successful and genuinely happy, but apparently the 30-year-old was reminded of her struggles when a fan showed her an old tweet from 2013 in which Ruby admitted to “losing [her] battle with depression.”

So, she responded via instagram:

“I’m just feeling reflective because I chose to fight and I thought it meant I’d be able to live. I DIDNT think it meant I’d be able to live my dream. I DIDNT think it would result in this extraordinary life I get to be a part of now… It just makes me wonder how many others are days, hours, seconds away from realizing their worth.. Their potential.. And once the dark cloud is lifted will be truly happy and free.”

Oof. I hear ya, girl.

She further elaborated on getting re-sent that tweet during an E! interview at the GLAAD Media Awards on April 2, saying:

“It was a real spinout when I got sent that, and it was something I had posted three years ago, you know, when I was really really depressed and I didn’t think that I could live another day or want to live another day, let alone live my dream.”

“So, my message was really just that, to really reflect on how many people in the world right now feel like they don’t want to go on another day, or they can’t go on another day, and they’re just seconds or minutes or days away from reaching their full potential and blossoming and being free and happy. I just thought that’s got to be millions of people and that’s just my message. Just hang in there, like one day at a time, and it does get better. I know that’s cliché, but it just does.”

Happy you’re good now, Ruby. I kinda wanna see her do some volunteerism or speaking out on this issue, though- maybe it’s a way she can give back.

Chrissy Teigen Does NOT Like Trader Joes

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend at The 2016 Pre-Grammy Clive Davis Party in LA

LOL, Chrissy Teigen isn’t fooled by much, is she?

The model and Cravings cookbook author was absolutely fooled by an April Fool’s prank saying that Trader Joe’s was closing down. The story was posted and conceived of by Yahoo, and lamer still, they botched the prank by posting too early. Anyhow, the article stated that the grocery chain was closing all of its stores by 2017. While most people were kinda confused and thought it was a prank, Chrissy let her true feelings be known:

Really? The cookie butter was the only thing that wasn’t weird?

In any case, she found out the article was a prank and immediately felt weird about THAT:

And then she doubled down…

And tripled down…

This wasn’t TJs fault; Yahoo deserves all the Twitter fury for it. But it IS hilarious. April Fools, Chrissy!

Susan Sarandon And Debra Messing Are In A Serious Twitter Beef

2nd Annual "Beyond Hunger: A Place At the Table" Event in LA

It’s the political battle of the redheads, Y’ALL!

Susan Sarandon and Debra Messing are in a straight up “who’s the most liberal” Twitter war, and it got UGLY. The whole thing began when Sarandon did an interview on Chris Hayes’ MSNBC show, All In. Here’s the exchange that got the controversy-ball rolling:

SARANDON: I think Bernie would probably encourage people to [support Hillary if he loses] because he doesn’t have any ego in this thing. But I think a lot of people are, ‘sorry, I just can’t bring myself to [vote for Hillary].’

HAYES: How about you personally?

SARANDON: I don’t know. I’m going to see what happens.

HAYES: Really?

SARANDON: Really. It’s dangerous to think we can continue the way we are with the militarized police force, with the death penalty and the low minimum wage and threats to women’s rights and think you can’t do something huge to turn that around. The country is not in good shape if you’re in the middle class. It’s disappearing.

(Via Salon)

A lot of people thought Sarandon was coming close to saying Democrats, liberals and progressives should stay home from the polls if Hillary Clinton gets the nomination. Sarandon was widely criticized for her “blind privilege,” by the likes of Jamie Lee Curtis and even more aggressively, Debra Messing:

Oof. After that, a frenzy of tweets, that you can see on Susan’s Twitter feed here and Debra’s feed here.

The fact of the matter is that Susan is not advocating voting for anyone other than Bernie Sanders, even if Clinton gets the nomination. And it’s a tough place to be considering the repubs looking for nominations are the truly cringe-worthy Donald Trump or Ted Cruz.

What do YOU Think about this feud?!
