A Florida mother is out on bail after forcing her teen daughter, who was being bullied, into a fight with another girl. And Tabitha Anne Bennett didn’t just drive her daughter to the fight, she arranged it over Facebook and brought a knife, just in case she and her daughter needed to use it on the other 14-year-old.
Ari is a 8-month year old pug, beagle, deer mix who has no home. She lives at the daycare I take my dog to. The day care takes pictures of the dogs all day for us neurotic owners. I have often seen pictures of Ari and thought, “who is this creature with the face of an award-winning character actor in a cable prestige drama?”
India’s capital city hired its first woman bus driver while the country is still trying to figure out how ladies can board public transportation safely.
The New England Aquarium has eight pairs of endangered African penguins, and they want them to make more babies. Hence, they are installing a series of “honeymoon suites,” i.e. fuck rooms, to encourage the little guys and gals.
You know how you learn things? You read books. But only good books! Books written by smart people who know what they’re talking about. Like, oh I don’t know, L. Ron Hubbard! Yeah, if you want to learn things, you should read books by L. Ron Hubbard almost exclusively. That’s what John Travolta thinks, anyway. This morning on TODAY the totally-absolutely-100%-not-a-captive-of-an-evil-non-religion John Travolta said that Scientology is “misunderstood” and that “people really need to take time and read a book.” But definitely not Going Clear by Lawrence Wright, no no. Not that book. That book stinks! “You could read [L. Ron Hubbard’s] New Slant on Life or Dianetics,” he continued. “And I think if you really read it, you’ll understand it.”
Just when you THOUGHT that MAINSTREAM MEDIA couldn’t FURTHER INSULT your INTELLIGENCE, Big Sean and Ariana Grande BREAKUP without ANY MENTION of what’s REALLY going on here.
If you smoke, you’ve probably already nailed down your favorite weed snacks and your favorite weed activities: members of Jezebel staff are partial to pairing elaborate cheese trays and pretzels dipped in peanut butter (sometimes jelly) with a little nail painting, cat brushing, sex having, or of course, a nice tune-enhanced shower . However, when it comes to dumb weed videos, there’s always room to expand one’s library. So let’s make a collection! That’s one of my favorites up top—some rare footage of me at the club.
In today’s Tweet Beat, I can get behind Lena Dunham’s dieting strategy (same for bananas), Jim Carrey seems happy and Zach Braff causes nightmares.
Teens across the internet are bruising their faces in order to recreate Kylie Jenner’s obviously enhanced lips. The ill-advised #KylieJennerChallenge caught on with a small group of bored, improperly supervised youth who documented their disasters by posting traumatizing pictures on social media.
So Twitter created a rather obscure new setting in its privacy menu called “Receive Direct Messages from Anyone.” Now, people you don’t follow can send you a direct message, or DM, in private. Here’s why this setting got people’s knickers in a bunch — for some pretty good reasons.
At the premiere party for her new film, the surprisingly earnest and satisfying romance Age of Adaline, guests roamed Manhattan’s Metropolitan Club quietly sipping champagne and brushing shoulders with famous people and not-famous people and people who looked like they could maybe be famous people. They did not, for the most part, take photos and were, for lack of a better word, chill
. An hour or so later, however, those same guests (myself included) lost what little chill they had and went into a brief manic state, whipping out their handheld flashbulbs directing them at a single person. That person was Blake Lively.
In a shocking video released today by Vogue, Academy Award-nominated actress and former Englishwoman Carey Mulligan suggested that she has renounced her citizenship of the United Kingdom and become a New Yorker. Mulligan moved to the Big Apple to star in a revival of Skylight [updated: thanks Smilla !] on Broadway, but found herself giving in to the city and its unique culture almost immediately.
FKA twigs is pretty clearly a different type of artist, but in a recent interview she explains a bit about how she came to be the dance-centered, avant-garde performer who is shaking up what it means to be a black, singing and dancing woman.

I found this week’s episode of Outlander draining and emotionally exhausting and personally I am ready to time-surf the centuries and turn the tables on some witch-hunting creeps. Queue to my left to join the misandrist time-traveling witch-hunter-busting vigilante squad. But at least we got a firelight fingering scene, right?
A Duane Reade customer who is not Rihanna recorded some video of a Duane Reade customer who is Rihanna as she roamed the New York-based convenience store while suffering from “the munchies” recently.
In the past several months, Twitter’s announced
that it’s going to do more to make trolling less of an issue on their social media platform. A new announcement, however, suggests that the company may be making it easier than ever for strangers to contact you even if you don’t follow them back.
The Atlantic gives us some prime holiday content with a discussion of what a 20th-century Dutch biologist Nikolaas Tinbergen calls “supernormal stimuli”—fake and exaggerated versions of their natural equivalents, which some animals respond to more strongly than they do to the real thing. For example:
Just one day after a memorial tree was planted in Michael Brown’s honor, some callous asshole cut the tree in half and stole the memorial stone that accompanied it. The 18 year-old was already unjustly killed and his family denied the right to seek justice so why not pour salt into that wound just because?
