As a young woman, I have often found it hard to explain to my male friends what street harassment is like. Many of them I have noticed claim to the statement that if they were to catcalled, they would actually really enjoy it. However, street harassment is far from a compliment. It does not make me feel special when a man twice my age with no teeth yells out “Hey Woman!” or scarier still, comes up to my car window while I’m at a red light just to chit-chat about what I’m wearing and where I’m going (the latter happened to me just last week while volunteering at a shelter). As any young woman can agree, this type of verbal harassment happens too often.
Thankfully, some are trying to lift that veil and get men to see what women have to experience on a day to day basis. Recently, Cosmopolitan has put together a video that shows boyfriends real video footage of their girlfriends being harassed by strange men in the street.
The video shows many men in a New York City yelling things such as “Nice titties!” to even following them around for blocks. All boyfriends shown in the video seem to be upset that such degrading things were said about their girlfriends. Hopefully this video can shed some light to those not aware of how big an issue catcalling really is.

There will most likely be some breakup songs in their future. Country music’s biggest couple, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton, announced they were separating on Monday, July 20.
“This is not the future we envisioned,” the said in a statement to Us Magazine. “And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real families, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter.”
The superstar pair was married four years ago in a Texas barn. Since then, they have been plagued by rumors of infidelity and a possible breakup. However, they always adamantly denied these allegations. In fact, Miranda previously said that she never planned to divorce and viewed marriage as a lifetime commitment. The couple was not that fortunate though.
Rumors began to swirl following the announcement that Miranda had cheated on Blake, possibly with singer and actor Chris Young. Young denied these claims though, saying, “I don’t normally address gossip but in this case I will,” He Tweeted. “My name has been mentioned as a contributing factor in Blake and Miranda’s divorce. That is totally FALSE. They are both my friends and I would not betray that friendship. Just wanted to clear that up. Love you guys – CY.”
Other rumors have circulated that an affair with another man is to blame for the destruction of their marriage. Additionally, many have blamed his desire to have a family and her reluctance as a catalyst. Allegedly, their hectic schedules, which led to them hardly seeing each other, was the biggest contributor. Soon after the couple’s announcement, it was revealed that their divorce agreement was already signed. Blake filed for divorce in Oklahoma on July 6 and had the documents sealed. The couple agreed to the terms laid out in their prenuptial agreement, giving Blake their Oklahoma property and Miranda their house in Nashville.
Since the announcement, Blake has Tweeted, including a message telling fans he was back at work on NBC’s The Voice. Meanwhile, Miranda canceled a show due to illness right after the divorce filing. Additionally, she broke down crying during a performance of “The House that Built Me” which was famously a special song for the pair. The song was originally meant for Blake to sing, but he gifted it to his then-fiancé Miranda after her response to it. No matter what caused their split, country music is not going to be the same without these two as a couple.

After many weeks of speculation, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck officially announced that they plan to divorce. Sad news considering the couple just celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary the day before, and with their down to earth images they had won a spot among my favorite celeb couples of all time.
“After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time,” the couple said in a statement to Us Weekly Magazine, confirming their split. “This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding.”
The two met on the set of the 2001 movie Pearl Harbor. However, it was not until they made the 2003 movie Daredevil, and after Affleck’s two-year engagement to Jennifer Lopez ended, that they started dating. They went public at a Boston Redsox game and a new, better, Bennifer was born. They became the sweet down to earth pair everyone rooted for. By April 2005 they were engaged and in June of that year they got married in a Caribbean ceremony officiated by her Alias costar Victor Garber.
During the course of their marriage the couple had three children: Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3. Additionally, they have starred in a number of hit films, even detailing how they take turns making movies so that someone is always at home for their kids. Affleck also won his second Oscar, for Argo, with Garner accompanying him to the awards show.
The couple is rumored to be handling the split amicably for the sake of their family. Affleck is even planning to stay on the couples Brentwood property. Additionally, the couple hopes to resolve the divorce quickly and without contention, while sharing joint custody of their children. It remains to be seen what will be determined in terms of child or spousal support. No matter what, this is definitely the end of what was a great Hollywood couple.

Heart break has been hitting Hollywood hard in the last month and one of our favorite couples called it quits this week. Nick Jonas and his long time girlfriend Olivia Culpo have been dating long distance for years and have announced their split to the public this week. The “Chains” singer and his Miss Universe 2012 girlfriend were first seen together in 2013 and appeared to be happy together. They both have expressed difficulty maintaining their long-distance relationship and what they were doing to make it work.
Chains unfortunately couldn’t hold these two together and sources close to the couple say they have both been taking it hard. Culpo said she’s, “ going to be okay” then took to Instagram to post a picture of palm trees and a sunset with the caption “Your heart just breaks, that’s all. Heartbreak is hard but you find more and more things to be grateful for every day. One of those things is all of you. Thank you all. Yes I’m going to be okay and I love u guys so so much every day is a blessing.”
Hopefully these two can work out their distance issues or go their separate ways and be happy.
With Pride month coming to a close tons of pride-fest and parades have been taking place all over the country. L.A.’s pride parade got an extra special surprise when two members of the Magic Mike XXL cast made an appearance. Channing Tatum came to support his co-star Matt Bomer who is openly gay and to show their pride support.
Both “male strippers” were crowd pleasers when they showed off some of their moves on top of the float. Tatum even wore a rainbow bandana while Bomer wore a masquerade mask to get even more into the theme. Whether this was a promo for the movie or just to have a good time the crowd was estatic.

Media outlets and print headlines have bombarded news consumers with Ireland being the first country to legalize gay marriage by popular vote. It was announced Saturday that the country was in favor of changing their country’s constitution to allow same-sex marriages. The numbers that came in swept the opposing sides vote by nearly 400,000 votes. There was no doubt the amendment would be put in after only one of the 43 parliamentary constituents voted in opposition. LGBT members and allies have been crying tears of joy for the long time coming and hope to see the momentum continue.
Some of Hollywood’s A-listers like Sam Smith who is openly gay, Miley Cyrus who recently came out as gender queer, Hozier, Russell Simmons, Sarah Silverman, Olivia Wilde and many more have even joined in showing their support. The hashtag #LoveWins and #IrelandVotedYes are trending on Twitter showing tons of support. Check out some of the tweets below!
Earlier this week the long anticipated music video for “Feelin’ Myself” starring Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé was released on “TIDAL” the exclusive content site, but later leaked to more…obtainable sites.
Either way the dynamic duo did not fail to disappoint us with the video and it might have even revived the song from Minaj’s 2014 album “The Pink Print.” The Coachella inspired video includes both women having a ratchet good time eating cheeseburgers and fries, wearing long jersey dresses, and giving us all the sass humanly possible.
Unfortunately we do not have rights to link the video, but you can for sure find it after a little perusing.
