I Liked the Björk Show at MoMA, Haters

On Saturday, the Björk retrospective will open to the public at MoMA in New York. It's a stiflingly small exhibit compared to her almost 40-year body of work (she released her first solo album in 1977, at the age of 12), and it focuses primarily on her notebooks and costumes from the 20-some years since Debut, along… » 3/06/15 6:50pm Yesterday 6:50pm

From Ronald McDonald to I'm Lovin' It: A Curly Girls' Guide

I am the youngest of five children and have been mostly doted upon since day one. I say mostly because on the day I was born, all four of my siblings were mortified by my appearance. Mor.ti.fied. It was my hair: thick and black, sticking up in every direction, untamable. So disturbed were they that they… » 3/06/15 4:10pm Yesterday 4:10pm

Bless Your Heart: A Meditation, A Taxonomy, A Eulogy

There is a phrase that a woman can deploy like a verbal stiletto. It's increasingly dangerous to use, because many people are catching on to the phrase's true meaning.
