In case you’ve been living under a rock the last couple years, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry finally ended their very public feud, cementing their status as legendary feminist icons totally above petty Bad Blood and that Swish Swish, Bish shit. Recently the two have elevated their relationship from “not enemies” to “actually kinda friends”, as evidenced by Taylor sending Katy a hand-embroidered blanket for her three-week-old daughter Daisy Dove Bloom.
This is great news for anyone who has ever daydreamed of Prince Harry wearing a This Is What A Feminist Looks Like t-shirt. This revelation comes courtesy of Meghan Markle, who recently sat down for an interview with feminist icon Gloria Steinem to talk about the upcoming biopic, The Glorias (which is about Gloria Steinem over the course of her life), as well as why it’s important to vote in the November election. Uh oh, someone prepare Piers Morgan’s Valium dosage accordingly, Meghan is talking politics again.
It’s been a minute since I’ve heard the name Russell Brand––and probably for good reason as the comedian, ex-husband of Katy Perry and former sex addict is back…and making a full-blown ass of himself online by, what many are claiming is, mansplaining Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s video for WAP. Not only does Russell compare it to porn, but he even throws in a few mind-melting comparisons to Thatcherism.
Gloria Steinem. Angela Davis. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Nellie McClung. Malala Yousafzai. Audre Lorde. Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Every single one of these famous feminists is total fucking shit compared to Katy Perry and Taylor Swift. Because they chose to end their five-year-long feud to set a positive example for young women. At least that’s what Katy claims in a new interview with Howard Stern.
Harvey Weinstein has clearly done a lot of self-reflection and soul searching because he wants the world to know that he should be remembered as a feminist icon who deserves a pat on the back for how much he has done for women in the industry. Obviously, his words, not mine. Or anyone else’s on the planet. I can’t even begin to process the level delusion and narcissism it takes to say those words. It’s like Jeffery Dahmer saying, “I would really like to be remembered as an amazing chef.”
