What the Hell Happened to Personal Style?
Where a 14-year-old Kate Moss put in her time on Portobello Road with Corinne Day, learning to thrift, self-style, and create her own ambling glamour, the young fashion plates of today have outsourced the development of their style to professionals. And those employed to keep the young and stylish considered that way don’t dare take any real risks, for fear of sartorial missteps, bad tabloid titles (and the online equivalent), or a mention on a worst-dressed list. [...] We are so inundated by these images from paparazzi, from media, from the stars themselves, that we cease to see any meaning behind any of it. Which would be fine (their funeral, as the saying goes), except it’s a very costly absence of meaning, both societally and economically.

Connie Fisher on Make-Up
evolutionary psychology explanation: in more patriarchal societies, women wear less make-up (middle east v western world) make-up is a signal of equality. why do women wear make-up? "women have to show sexiness (attractiveness) to signal fertility. [...] subconscious natural selection." // industry worker "a treat, feeling good that rather looking good." // art, and can look like a different person // study showed that people prefer no-make-up make-up look. // advertising and marketing is positioning and spin it that it is seen in a feminist way along the way of 'you made the decision, you made yourself look better, ...' rarely do we judge men by their look ... ie rob ford toronto mayor, or chris christie. // Selfie has become a culture/pop culture phenomenon. bare face selfie is seen now as courageous! #trend - bare face is so alien to our make-up (look your best) norm/cultural norm! // putting on make-up and nice outfit (shopping, treat) can become coping mechanism against stress.

The Truth About Caitlyn Jenner’s Politics (time.com)
After all, many Americans still see transgender people as strange or illegitimate. So it wouldn’t surprise me if interest in this story is partly driven by a desire to see the world’s most famous transgender person being taken down by her own community. Caitlyn Jenner has positioned herself as a representative or “ambassador” of trans communities, so I can understand why trans people object or take issue when her views fail to accurately reflect or support those communities. But when people who are unconcerned with transgender rights themselves start piling on, quite frankly, I am suspicious.

Made in Chelsea's Spencer Matthews took steroids 'to look good in the shower' - BBC Newsbeat
And admits he took them because he "wanted to look as good as possible". He says it was because he wanted to be bigger and stronger while training for the match. Newsbeat recently revealed one in 10 men training in UK gyms struggle with a body anxiety known as "bigorexia", or muscle dysmorphia. It's been compared to anorexia in reverse - where men become obsessed with putting on muscle. Depression, steroid abuse and even suicide are effects of bigorexia.

Jenny Beavan’s Oscars outfit struck a blow for all women | Laura Bates | Opinion | The Guardian
This was not the first stand taken against the reduction of women in the industry to their clothes and jewellery. The past few years have seen Elisabeth Moss give the middle finger to the “mani-cam” at the Golden Globes, Cate Blanchett demand: “Do you do that to the guys?” as a camera panned up and down her body on the red carpet, and a series of women from Reese Witherspoon to Amy Poehler demand that reporters ask them more than questions about their frocks. We’ve also seen the actress and singer Zendaya speak out about racist responses to her dreadlocks at the Oscars, and Bridesmaids star Melissa McCarthy design her own dresses after designers refused to dress her, proving that Hollywood’s incredibly narrow definition of beauty is discriminatory on the basis of size and race. [...] find themselves pitted against each other in excruciating “best dressed” and “worst dressed” lists, the awards season will continue to provide a high-profile, glossy microcosm of wider prejudice.

Taylor Swift an 'obnoxious Nazi Barbie', writes Camille Paglia | Music | The Guardian
Feminist writer says singer – with her ‘girl squad’ – perpetuates elitism and reminds her of ‘fascist blondes’ of her youth. Camille Paglia has written a scathing critique of Taylor Swift, referring to the singer as an “obnoxious Nazi Barbie” whose “twinkly persona is such a scary flashback to the fascist blondes who ruled the social scene during my youth”. Paglia, known for seminal feminist works such as Sexual Personae, criticised the singer for perpetuating elitism and undermining female empowerment by surrounding herself with a group of girls who were simply “performance props”. Swift is known as the ringleader of a sisterhood of actors, models and singers, such as Selena Gomez, Lena Dunham, Cara Delevingne and Karlie Kloss, who Swift often refers to as her “girl squad”. Many joined the singer on stage during her tour for her latest album, 1989. Paglia, 68, condemned this as “exhibitionist overkill” by the singer.

Are 'Instagram Husbands' really a thing? - BBC News
A tongue-in-cheek video is highlighting the plight of "Instagram husbands" - those poor partners who are stuck miserably photographing the exploits of their loved ones. Its creators say it's a joke about the shallow nature of social media - rather than a comment on gender politics. [...] Instagram skews heavily towards young people and women: according to one estimate, 68% of its users are female. Facebook and Pinterest also skew female, while Twitter and Tumblr are roughly balanced and Reddit and similar forums are predominately male, according to the Pew Research Center.

From social media to the catwalk, is fantasy beauty failing young women? | Life and style | The Guardian
The world of vloggers and YouTubers has created a perverse, homogenised “beauty” with no diversity or reality. Jane Cunningham, journalist [...] The concept of appearance as a commodity to be valued has filtered from Hollywood to family homes across the UK. A 2013 attitudes survey by the Guide Association finding that 87% of girls aged 11-21 believe women are judged more on their appearance than their ability. The dissatisfaction resulting from the oft-perpetuated narrow vision of a beauty ideal can lead to low self-esteem – and worse. Jane Cunningham, the journalist behind Britishbeautyblogger.com, says young girls come to her in tears, feeling hopeless and helpless, unable to reconcile their own appearance with what they believe to be beautiful.

Charlie Sheen discloses HIV positive diagnosis: 'It's a hard three letters to absorb' | Culture | The Guardian
Today Show host Matt Lauer asked Sheen why he continued to bring people including prostitutes to his home even though they were threatening him. Sheen said it was because he was depressed. He said that the period in March 2011 when he appeared on television and online making absurd claims and going on long tirades was not tied to his HIV status. “I wish I could blame it on that – that was more roid rage,” he said. [...] CBS fired Sheen from the long-running sitcom Two and a Half Men in March 2011 after the Golden Globe-winning actor had a public meltdown and criticised the show’s creator, Chuck Lorre. Filming had been disrupted in the previous year as Sheen, who was the highest-paid actor on television at the time, received treatment for drug addiction. //&! As medical advances help thousands of people, it would be disastrous to revert to bigoted attitudes in public and the media - bit.ly/1Y5qk8S - If a celebrity – or anybody else – has HIV, it really is none of our business.

Extremely. It’s even worse to market your style. It’s truly sad. And everyone on Facebook has the same sort of marketing ploy selling their image. What does that do to people? It’s extremely brutalising that you’re going to be for sale. It’s one of the worst things you can possibly imagine. Go to any party and you see that: I just don’t think you’re worth talking to.

Speaking to Billboard magazine, the 23-year-old was scathing about the gossip websites who suggested she was addicted to drugs. "I wanted so badly to say: 'You guys have no idea. I'm in chemotherapy. You're assholes'." "I locked myself away until I was confident and comfortable again." Gomez went on to criticise the tabloid press, who have spent years picking apart her relationship with ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber as "vile". "I've been working since I was seven. I've been a Unicef ambassador since I was 17. It's so disappointing that I've become a tabloid story," she said.

Jörg Kachelmann: Kommentar zum Urteil von Gisela Friedrichsen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Der Springer-Konzern soll eine Rekordentschädigung an Jörg Kachelmann zahlen - gut so. Kachelmanns Verletzungen werden davon zwar nicht heilen. Boulevardmedien aber werden nun vorsichtiger sein, bevor sie Verleumdungskampagnen starten. [...] die Verletzungen, die auch die Justiz Kachelmann zugefügt hat, heilen nicht. Man denke nur an den unsäglichen Prozess vor dem Landgericht Mannheim, das, obwohl massive Zweifel an der Aussage des angeblichen Opfers bestanden, im Sexualleben des Angeklagten herumwühlte, als handle es sich bei ihm um den gefährlichsten Triebtäter Deutschlands überhaupt.

Amazon is known for its cutthroat efficiency and harsh tactics; it's what makes it possible to get a pack of toilet paper delivered to your door in less than 24 hours.

Celebrity lifestyles for sale | Life and style | The Guardian
It started with Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop – now everyone from Zooey Deschanel and Reese Witherspoon to Lena Dunham is selling you their way of life [...] Did this have a bearing on how they then responded to the way the story unfolded across the media? This is the less quantifiable benefit of the celebrity lifestyle brand: the emotional yank of feeling as if you’re part of a community, albeit one trying hard to sell you sunglasses. To be a fan today is to constantly be sold to, but also to constantly be questioning and scrutinising the celebrity’s choices. Fans are “polytheistic”, says Auerbach. “They have more choice and want to ‘follow’ a range of celebs who appeal to different parts of their personalities.” The aspirational foodie on Instagram, the interiors on Pinterest, the “sassy” motherhood blogger, the feminist tweeter. “It’s less about individual stars,” Auerbach adds, “and more about constellations.”

The brilliant thing about Kate Moss is that she can never be shamed | Fashion | The Guardian
Broadsheets love her, tabloids hate her - and she seemingly couldn’t care less what anyone thinks. For this, we should salute her. [...]The brilliant thing about Moss is that she can never be shamed: a newspaper could run a story about how she was caught having an orgy with several members of the Tory front bench, Sister Wendy and a labradoodle while simultaneously smoking propane, and, while the tabloids would spontaneously combust with their tangy combination of voyeurism and phony morality, the rest us would just nod and say, “Yup, that’s what I reckoned a quiet Sunday afternoon would be like for Kate Moss.” She showed fashion advertisers to be the hypocrites that they are when all those who had hired her precisely for her rock’n’roll image then dropped her in 2005 after she was photographed apparently taking cocaine, only to come back barely five minutes later with her yearly earnings doubled.

"It's good she wrote that," Ora enthuses. "I feel like I should have done it too but, for some reason, I kept it to myself. I guess that's one of the reasons why Ariana felt she had to do it. "It made me think 'do you know what? I'm going to speak out about that too, because I suffer from it as well.'" Accordingly, the big theme of Ora's album "female empowerment and sticking together".

Jörg Kachelmann einigt sich außergerichtlich mit Burda - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Jörg Kachelmann sieht sich durch die Berichterstattung in den Medien verleumdet. Vom Burda-Verlag forderte der TV-Moderator deshalb eine Million Euro. Jetzt haben sich beide Seiten außergerichtlich geeinigt. [...] Kachelmann war im Mai 2011 vom Vorwurf der Vergewaltigung freigesprochen worden. Er sieht sich durch die Prozess-Berichterstattung weiter Teile der Medien verleumdet und hat mehrere Medienunternehmen verklagt. In seinem Rechtsstreit mit dem Springer-Verlag war kein Vergleich zustande gekommen - in diesem Verfahren soll das Landgericht Köln am 2. September entscheiden.

Monica Lewinsky: The price of shame - YouTube
In 1998, says Monica Lewinsky, “I was Patient Zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously.” Today, the kind of online public shaming she went through has become a constant. In a brave talk, she takes a look at our “culture of humiliation,” in which online shame equals dollar signs — and demands a different way.

Amanda Bynes, Robin Williams, and the Spectacle of Mental Illness | Let's Queer Things Up!
[making money on the cost of other people ] // "People with co-occurring bipolar and schizophrenia have one of the highest suicide attempt rates of any group. 70.6% of these individuals will attempt suicide in their lifetime. You would think this would frighten us, and that we would be offering Bynes compassion on the mere basis that what she may be facing is, without a doubt, deadly. Yet the vast majority of press and articles surrounding Bynes’ mental state seems to ignore the stark reality of her struggle, and instead, opt to mock her erratic and unusual behavior. Rather than recognizing that she may have an illness, they have turned mental illness into a spectacle to watch, enjoy, and ridicule. [...] If no one has explained this to you, let me be the first to say that it is morally repugnant that we, as a society, are mocking mentally ill people. [...] It’s all fun and games until someone dies, as was the case with Robin Williams. [&too LGBTQIA << hate speech & crime]

His solicitor told a High Court judge that, despite his wife's fame, he had no wish to be a public figure. Reveal said it expressed regret for the distress and hurt it caused. [...] The magazine's article detailed his childhood, his life in France, where he was brought up, and gave information about his father, late mother, their personal finance and relationships. 'Unnecessary intrusion' Solicitor Callum Galbraith said the "deeply intrusive" article caused particular distress because he had actively sought to avoid the media's glare. [...] "Despite describing the article as the product of an investigation, at its core was a combination of speculation, gossip and private information. "As Reveal now accepts, the article as unjustifiable ....

Gossip: Promi Magazin mit Florian Ambrosius bei Sat.1 - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Das Tückische am Klatsch ist, dass er sich für seine profunde Hässlichkeit angeblich nicht rechtfertigen muss. So verkündet es die Moderatorin Julia Josten gleich zu Beginn: "Es geht um den Klatsch, weil wir genauso gerne klatschen wie Sie zu Hause!" Wir wollen es nämlich auch alle. Und wer behauptet, er wolle es durchaus nicht, der lügt. Damit das klar ist. An der Seite der "schönen Hamburgerin" (Sat.1) tippt und wischt noch ein "smarter Lübecker" namens Florian Ambrosius so sinn- wie hilflos auf einem tollen Touchscreen-Tisch herum. Vielleicht, damit die Hamburgerin nicht so alleine ist und beide sich herrlich ironische Blicke zuwerfen können.

Because it's a very specific form of sexuality that's being imposed, on children and adults: a porn version. This is what kids are dealing with on a daily basis. "Young people are accessing far harder pornographic images than 10 or 15 years ago." +++ Sex education should be "revolutionised" to better prepare young people for "healthy, respectful, emotionally fulfilling relationships" and deal with issues of self-esteem. +++ "commercialisation of childhood"

Miley Cyrus Says Instagram Is Worse For Your Brain than Marijuana | | Betabeat
Here are the deets, according to the Guardian: Cyrus, who became famous as a Disney child star in Hannah Montana, told Sunday Night that “I put some picture of me smoking weed … on my Instagram because I was brought up in the way that we never thought marijuana was bad,” when asked about her use of the banned substance. “You know what hurts your brain? Googling yourself. You know what hurts your brain? Instagram. You know what hurts your brain? Reading comments on Facebook. You know what hurts your brain? Reading US Weekly,” she said.

Fappening: Lawrence, Dunst, Upton - Nacktbilder von Promis - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Schon wieder sind die Frauen schuld. Dabei erklärt sich die Tatsache, dass weniger Männer-Nacktbilder durch das Netz geistern, vermutlich nicht allein dadurch, dass die Herren der Sicherheit von Apple weniger vertraut haben und bessere Schutzsysteme hatten. Sondern durch die Tatsache, dass die nackten Männer kaum jemanden interessieren. Ein nackter Mann ist ein nackter Mann. Ein Bild von einer nackten Frau, das sie angreifbar macht, ist für viele ein Grund, sich daran aufzugeilen und einen Kommentar abzugeben. Und dann ist da noch die große Frage, die über der ganzen Debatte schwebt: Warum nehmen sich Menschen überhaupt nackt auf? Für viele eine klare Sache: Eitelkeit. Entsprechende Kommentare sind von Häme durchdrungen. Sie missachten, dass Frauen nicht zwangsläufig Nacktbilder aufnehmen, um einem Mann einen Gefallen zu tun. Für viele sind sie Ausdruck, dass ihr Körper, ihre Sexualität, ihnen gehört. Sie machen Aufnahmen von sich und für sich.

A Letter To Jennifer Lawrence | TechCrunch
If I and other industry reporters like Mat Honan don’t know how exactly to absolutely protect ourselves, because the targets and tools are always changing, how will people who don’t have our exposure to tech? The onus is on Apple and other tech platforms like Google, Facebook, Amazon and Microsoft to keep their customers — us — safe. Though stolen photos are being shared that have been extracted from Android and Windows Phone backups, too, I’m singling out Apple here because Apple, beyond any other tech company, prides itself on a seamless consumer experience. It’s done a very good job of hiding the technical aspects of its products for the sake of user friendliness: “It just works.” Well, not in this case. +++ !!! http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/09/03/seth-green-huff-post_n_5761508.html + huff.to/WbN24c

The Great Naked Celebrity Photo Leak of 2014 is just the beginning | Roxane Gay | Comment is free | theguardian.com
There will always be another leak, because there is always curiosity in the bodies of nude celebrity women. There is always danger in being an Other. [...] It goes without saying that there aren’t many nude photos of men being released. Men are largely free to bare their bodies as they choose without repercussion, unless, as is the case of Dave Franco with Allison Brie and Justin Verlander with Upton, the man happens to be in a picture with a young woman, collateral damage. [...] BREAKING: beneath their clothes, celebrities are naked. What these people are doing is reminding women that, no matter who they are, they are still women. They are forever vulnerable. [revenge porn, rules are different for girls, all happened without consent, it is a crime, like breaking in into someone's home & stealing personal belongings] + bit.ly/1sYcSTO + bbc.in/1qmjnkU "And it's not fair to blame the victims of crime who may have simply been following the instructions websites" + huff.to/Y9V13m

Notes on the Celebrity Data Theft | Hacker News
!!! - https://www.nikcub.com/posts/notes-on-the-celebrity-data-theft/ "In reviewing months worth of forum posts, image board posts, private emails, replies for requests for services, etc. nowhere was the FindMyPhone API brute force technique (revealed publicly and exploited in iBrute) mentioned. This doesn’t mean that it wasn’t used privately by the hackers – but judging by the skill levels involved, the mentions and tutorials around other techniques and some of the bragged about success rates with social engineering, recovery, resets, rats and phishing – it appears that such techniques were not necessary or never discovered. [...] Timestamps, forum posts and other data suggests that the collection was built up over a long period of time. [...] In terms of staying secure the most obvious solutions are to pick a better password, set your security answers to long random strings and enable two-factor authentication. [+] ring-fence your email [private & public & communication]."

Tone deaf Mt. Gox CEO Mark Karpeles warns the world about the dangers of hackers | PandoDaily
"Recent events show that with appropriate motivation anything can be hacked.Maybe everyone should stop and think about what it means for them" - Karpeles tweet would appear to be a reference to the recent celebrity hacking scandal which has seen nude photos of several female stars published online, with extortion request sent to prevent the release of others. (Ironically, many of these demands were for payment in bitcoin.) Even if it weren’t for Karpeles’ track record with alleged hacking attacks, the tweet would nevertheless have been ill-advised. As many other public figures have learned, any hint at victim-blaming in this instance is sure to draw criticism. Combine this with the fact that Karpeles’ nearly bankrupted thousands of people, and this comment warrants a special kind of outrage.

Narzissmuss: Ursprung liegt oft in der Kindheit - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Wir haben eine narzisstische Gesellschaftsstruktur, die diese Fähigkeiten quasi verlangt. SPIEGEL ONLINE: Befördert unsere Leistungsgesellschaft Narzissmus? Oder haben Narzissten einfach mehr Erfolg in diesem System? Wardetzki: Sowohl als auch. [...] SPIEGEL ONLINE: Gibt es Unterschiede zwischen den Geschlechtern? Wardetzki: Ja, das hat kulturelle Wurzeln. Der männliche Narzisst ist eher von der grandiosen, machtbetonten Form. Die Narzisstin definiert sich mehr über Leistung, Perfektionismus, Attraktivität und Anpassung. Sie ist ein menschliches Chamäleon. Sie kommt in einen Raum, spürt genau, was gerade angesagt ist und kann sich perfekt in die Situation einfügen. --->>> see last thing about having a narcissistic superior.
