Famous Women's Bodies Don't Belong To You
Huffington Post - 11 months
In 2008, Emma Watson woke up the morning after 18th birthday to find paparazzi photos from her birthday party plastered all over tabloid covers and gossip websites. But they weren’t just any pap photos, candid shots of the young actress partying with her friends.  “Photographers laid down on the pavement and took photographs up my skirt,” Watson recalled during a HeForShe conference last year.  “If they had published the photographs 24 hours earlier, they would have been illegal. I think that’s just one example of how my transition to womanhood was dealt with very differently by the tabloid press than it was for my male colleagues.” Welcome to being a young woman in Hollywood. Welcome to being a young woman, full stop.  What happened to Watson back in 2008 was just the first of many violations she would face. Over the last nine years, she’s had to deal with everything from photoshopped images of her face onto the bodies of nude adult film stars, to online countdown clock...

Ashley Tisdale And Vanessa Hudgens Reunite For A Lovely Acoustic Duet
Huffington Post - about 1 year
“High School Musical” fans, you’re in for a treat.  On Tuesday, Ashley Tisdale shared a video on her YouTube channel featuring special guest (and BFF) Vanessa Hudgens. In the clip, the two ― who played Sharpay and Gabriella in the “HSM” films ― perform a wonderful acoustic rendition of Elle King’s “Ex’s & Oh’s.” It’s just what we’ve been looking for.  As it turns out, this is the duo’s first duet together ― as they note in the video, they didn’t get one in any of the “HSM” movies, much to their disappointment. This performance definitely makes up for that. It also makes us miss “High School Musical” more than we already did.  Will the Wildcats ever get back in the house? We can dream.  -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

2016 Is The Year Of Celebrities Apologizing For Cultural Appropriation
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Celebrity trends come and go, but the stigma of cultural appropriation sticks around forever. At least you can try to make up for your mistakes with an apology. Chris Hemsworth, Lily Allen and “Saved by the Bell” actor Mark-Paul Gosselaar are three celebrities who’ve recently come forward to say they’re sorry for past costumes, music videos and TV episodes that wrongly mock and steal from cultures not their own.  On Tuesday, Lily Allen backtracked to the year 2013 to apologize for an egregious mistake she made in her music video for “Hard Out Here.” The British singer, who is white, used women of color as props in the video, having them twerk in the background while she dances in front of them.  “I was guilty of appropriating when I did a video called ‘Hard Out Here,’” Allen said on BBC Radio 1 show The Exchange, “which, the intention behind it [was], I definitely wanted to make a feminist statement. But I was guilty of thinking ― assuming ― that there was a one-size-fits-all...

Let Vanessa Hudgens Be A Lesson That Instagram Can Be Used Against You
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
To all those who Instagram with reckless abandon, take note.  This past Valentine's Day, Vanessa Hudgens and her actor boyfriend, Austin Butler, visited a protected rock formation in Sedona, Arizona. To express their young love, the two carved their names and a heart into the red rock. Unfortunately, the social media documentation gave authorities ample evidence to pursue a misdemeanor count of damaging a natural feature on U.S. Forest Service land, the Associated Press reports.   So not (Say) OK. Hudgens has now reportedly paid a $1,000 fine to resolve the crime, which is punishable by up to six months in jail and a maximum $5,000 citation. The money from Hudgens' fine will go toward helping a volunteer group called Friends of the Forest restore the rock wall, according to the AP. This rock and others found in the Coconino National Forest are apparently vandalized all the time, but because of Hudgens' celebrity status, authorities were made aware of the crime. Hudgens...
