Elizabeth Banks is telling those who wish to restrict access to birth control to suck a bag of dicks. She explains how it's used for a whole raft of things other than preventing unwanted pregnancies, including to help regulate periods in those struggling with fertility issues and improve the chances of successful IVF. "Just over a year ago, my son Felix was born via gestational surrogacy. He came out of me nine months early and because of my broken belly, his babycake was baked in a wonderful angel's oven and now — I can't believe it — he's a year old and walking. He has expanded my capacity for joy a thousand-fold." She then ponders what it would be like if employers had a say in your reproductive health, as a proposed bill in Arizona tried to enable. "A girlfriend and I recently wondered what would be more mortifying: having to tell her male employer she needed birth control to mitigate a heavy flow or just bleeding all over herself in the office?" she added. Solid gold. [iVillage]

High-profile feminists have weighed in on Katy Perry's faux girl power message in the past, and now Naomi Wolf is taking her to task over the video for "Part Of Me" – saying it's more like an ad for the Marines than a message about the importance of inner strength and independence. "Have you all seen the Katy Perry Marines video? It is a total piece of propaganda for the Marines…. I really want to find out if she was paid by them for making it…It is truly shameful," said Wolf. "I would suggest a boycott of this singer who I really like-if you are as offended at this glorification of violence as I am." What say you? [E!]
The more I see Katy with Baptiste Giabiconi the more I think they're a good match. [Page Six]

Though she seems like she'd be pretty down-to-earth and fun to hang out with, Rolling Stone confirms it by chatting with several of Jennifer Lawrence's friends. "I'd met her a few times, and she was like, 'You should come over and we'll hang out,'" said Zoe Kravitz. "So I go over to her apartment, and she opens the door in a towel. She's like, 'Come in, sorry, you're early, I was about to shower.' And she drops her towel and gets in the shower, and starts shaving her legs, totally naked. She was like, 'Are we here yet? Is this OK?' And I was like, 'I guess we're there!'" [Page Six]


After being blessed with news that more episodes of Arrested Development are coming our way, the gods in charge of reviving beloved TV shows and movies have decided to double our pleasure by finally allowing the sequel to Anchorman — and we know it's true because the words came right out of Will Ferrell's mouth. What's next, they're going to bring back Models Inc. with the original cast? If that were to happen I'd be forced to shoot myself right there and then because I'd know that life would never be quite so perfect again. [Huff Po]

While shooting an ad for his energy drink, Joan Rivers admitted she finds 50 Cent pretty hot. "He is adorable," she said. "I didn't know what to expect, but he's as cute as they come." If they got together it'd be a great way for them both to stick it to Chelsea Handler seeing how he used to date her and Joan has made it pretty clear she can't stand the woman. Plus, if they started dating it'd be the only Dirt Bag item for a month, seeing as nothing could come close to beating that juicy. [E!]
