From the sheer dress days of the VMAs to her recent directorial debut, the short film Dawn, Rose is an inspiration--and one who still manages to inspire a Tumblr generation of teens to dress just like Amy Blue in The Doom Generation.
A blue-eyed blonde pop star collided with a buxom Black rapper on Tuesday and in doing so, in tweeting at Nicki Minaj, Taylor unwittingly stumbled upon an aspect of feminism she might not have considered yet: a feeling of being marginalized because of your race as a woman.
As a high school student, I have often heard accusatory comments that so-and-so is only involved with social activism or a service project because "she wants to put it on her resume" or "he just wants to gain admission to college."
All over the internet Beyoncé is hailed for bringing FEMINISM to the masses, for delivering it to teens and anyone watching who might have considered it a bad word. If Beyoncé is a feminist, well, hell, then I am, too! Where do I sign up? But what are they signing up for?
It's impossible for her to represent every woman, but much of what she stands for - confidence, fearlessness, self-awareness - can still translate and provide the building blocks essential for growing a new generation of independent, free-thinking women.

As a 53-year-old who grew up listening to classic rock albums and radio stations and going to many concerts, I can attest that rock is alive, even though it's not the dominant genre anymore.
Sinead O'Connor is worried about Miley. So is Elton John. So are the bearded guys of Duck Dynasty. But I'm not. Because I know that Miley is a strategic genius and that brands actually have quite a bit to learn from her.
Sexual wellness is not defined by how few wrinkles you have or how good you look in lingerie. A healthy sex life is characterized by confidence, security, emotional stability, the dynamics of a relationship and each individual's level of self-discovery.
