Divergent Star Shailene Woodley Thinks Twilight Is Toxic

Shailene Woodley — winsome tree spirit and star of Divergent, your new fave movie about dystopian teens just tryin' to get by — is not a fan of Twilight.

In a recent interview with Teen Vogue, she criticized the book for being a sexist piece of garbage that glorifies an abusive relationship dynamic:

"Twilight, I'm sorry, is about a very unhealthy, toxic relationship. [The protagonist Bella] falls in love with this guy and the second he leaves her, her life is over and she's going to kill herself! What message are we sending to young people? That is not going to help this world evolve."

Yeah, exactly. Less books about women weeping over tragic/glittery men and more books about women overthrowing totalitarian regimes. [Teen Vogue, Gossip Cop]

Taylor Swift is reportedly NOT pleased that Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are back on and has thus ousted Selena from her illustrious panopoly of BFFs. Back in July, the two pop singers were like sisters. Sigh. Justin Bieber ruins everything, as is the Joffrey of Pop's wont. [Us]
