Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda”: It Takes a Woman to Write the Ultimate Big-Booty Anthem

A “big ass” is a subjective thing. In 2001, Beyoncé suggested that America may not be “ready for [her] jelly,” a declaration that made those of us with double-digit pant sizes rejoice and laugh (Bey, girl, you tiny). “Bootylicious” is a phrase I’ve used in my own life when in need of a playful reference to my own size, but it’s been 13 years since the Destiny’s Child hit and J.Lo’s ass were reference points for the “curvy” euphemism. Now we’re living in a world where sex symbols are regularly accused of getting butt implants. It’s time for a new big-booty anthem, preferably another from a woman. Enter Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda.” … Read More

Hilarious Photos of a Teen Boy’s Celebrity Fashion Recreations

Photogenic New Zealand high schooler and Instagram favorite Liam Martin, who we learned about on Neatorama, is a master of disguise. He takes comical photos of himself dressed in the fashions of trendy celebrities, recreating portraits of pop culture stars like Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, and Taylor Swift. The remakes are done with whatever Martin seems to have on hand — including pasta, which mimics long curls, and cardboard props. But it’s Martin’s personality that really makes the photos hilarious as he mugs his way through each snapshot with aplomb. Martin’s version of high fashion evokes the absurdity of celebrity culture and examines it from a youthful perspective. … Read More

We Need to Talk About Jessie J and Our Irrational Pop Star Preferences

With a record-breaking six Top 10 singles from one album in her native UK, Jessie J is England’s answer to Katy Perry. Admittedly, that’s selling her short — her voice possesses Aguilera power and she writes her own material — but details are unimportant in the mud-pit wrestling match that is the female pop star gauntlet. The singer’s most successful American single to date, Top 10 hit “Domino,” is straight-up Teenage Dream Perry, down to its reference to skin-tight pants. “(Insert new singer) is like (insert established pop diva starting to show cracks/long past her prime) plus (insert another big pop star)”: this is the musical conversation pop stars get, despite the fact that pop hits are defined more by their songwriters and producers than their interpreters. The personality conversation is an even uglier scene, one in which stars are made and fade away. … Read More

Franz Kafka Turns 131, Seinfeld Turns 25, and Robin Thicke Stays Creepy: Links You Need to See

It’s a week of very important birthdays: today, Kafka turns 131 and Seinfeld turns 25 (and it seems like we were changing its diapers, spoon-feeding it babka, and telling our friends, “You’ve gotta see the baby!” just yesterday). Of course, it can’t be everyone’s birthday: here you’ll also find material on the perpetually mopey Nick Cave and the infidelity-insinuating Beyoncé. … Read More
