I grew up without an Indian mother or community, so there's a lot I don't know about being an Indian woman. But I did know the bindi held significance because my nani wore a simple red one every day.
He survived a broken childhood in north Toronto, striving without always succeeding to resist the violence, drugs and despair around him. To escape his fate, Joe joined one of our first youth conferences in 1999, and later traveled overseas to volunteer in poor communities.
So, when it's all said and done, "The @Pack" is actually the best group of role models thus far. For all the people who want to bash them, Hollywood actually needs more young class acts like these.
It would be amazing and life-saving to turn this situation around in 2014. Chagas disease is silently devastating millions of people throughout the Americas -- we need to give a voice to those most in need.
As a reporter for the Chicago Sun Times, I saw celebs crash and burn more times than I like to remember. Up close and personal, sometimes. Fame i...
The end of the year is a great time to survey workout music for two reasons. First, it provides a chance to look back at the year that's winding down and reminisce. Second, the new year is when folks make resolutions -- often to get into better shape -- and the recap includes a few songs that might help with that.
Disney-alum and pop-starlet extraordinaire, Selena Gomez, has apparently had better nights than last Friday at KIIS FM's annual Jingle Ball concert....
I'm not sure if I can stomach an entire film featuring puffy-sleeved blouses and mom jeans, so I'm taking this opportunity to style my dream Sweet Valley Highcast.
The word "feminism" is thrown around quite loosely these days, especially among chart-topping pop stars. Whenever one woman makes a "questionable" move, another woman quickly throws up her dukes -- looking for a fight, with some even calling it feminism.
Getaway, remarkably, is holding on to a one percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes as I write this sentence. Which firmly plants it has the worst reviewed movie of the summer and, I can only assume, assures that Robert Luketic is going to have a hell of a Labor Day weekend celebration party.
Getaway is like the ultimate reductionist car-centric action film. It feels less like a movie made from an actual script and more like director Courtney Solomon composed a list of things he wanted to put in, then assembled those items into something that vaguely resembled a movie.
Q: I'm a 13-year-old girl who misses Selena Gomez when she wasn't so grown up. Who are some other alternative role models? My list so far is: Zendaya Coleman, Bella Thorne, Bridgit Mendler, and Ariana Grande.
Is it Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' sweet "Same Love"? Is it Miley Cyrus' not-so-sweet "We Can't Stop"? What about Mariah Carey's Twitter-ready "#Beautiful"? I rank the 10 biggest songs of summer 2013 and pick a winner -- and I give Ke$ha the greatest nickname she'll ever, ever have.
Whether you accept a particular revelation as true or consider a ritual institution to be divinely demanded, the category "religion" is a human construction with a shifting meaning that people use strategically to make sense of the world and to negotiate relations to others in society.
With Justin Bieber becoming the first person to reach 40 million followers on Twitter (nearly eight million more than President Obama), it has become appallingly obvious that we no longer judge people based on character, integrity or even their contribution to society.
As the title character in American Mary, Katharine Isabelle is bloody good.
