By Dirty Hands on I Don't Care, I Can't Stop, and I Love It: Miley Cyrus and Ironic Decadence

@nina! Agree. But something about Robin Thicke's tongue staying in his mouth seemed almost charming.

@JessicaLovejoy You don't care. You love it.

"...without talking about how much they drink or smoke pot and, if they are not currently doing a lot, how much they used to do, in addition to cocaine."

What the hell, is EVERYBODY DOING COKE BUT ME?

@Olivia2.0 *Four dresses that are barbeque appropriate (even though one isn't really at all)

After reading this, I sat here at my desk and stared off into space for a while, thinking. I don't know what to say other than thank you for sharing this with us.

By pajamaralls on D.I.-Why?: Emily Matchar on the Allure of the “New Domesticity”

@Lili B. I have no interest in this baby just because I don't really care about the royal family. It's just never been an interest.

But I think I do have a sort of internal backlash against them, and it's focused solely on people who hate celebrities like Kim Kardashian or the Real Housewives - basically anyone viewed as being famous for being famous; without ever having to work for it. But they love the Royal Family and fawn over Kate Middleton. And it's fine - like what you like and talk about her fashion and style, but don't fool yourself into thinking that Kate Middleton's years of hard-work and toiling got her where she is, ya know?

By Olivia2.0 on D.I.-Why?: Emily Matchar on the Allure of the “New Domesticity”

@Lili B. Isn't that sort of the point of her though? That her exceptional talent is to be shiny-headed and straight-backed and able to put up with the public portion of it? I mean - I find it difficult to believe that after Princess Diana was literally KILLED BY PAPS that anyone would pretend they don't know what they're getting into? I think she signed up for it, and that's her special skill. She can handle it. And that's probably why Will married her - because she convinced him she really, really would be okay with all that it entailed.

Edited to add: I guess I mean I HOPE that's her special skill - like Harry Potter's mom, giving some kind of ancient protection to her child or Bella turning into a super protective vampire mom. I just, I hope it all rolls off her back and she loves more of the "job" than she hates.
