“Marriage should be a combining of two whole, independent existences, not a retreat, an annexation, a flight, a remedy…. The couple should not be regarded as a unit, a close cell; rather each individual should be integrated was such in a society at large, where each (whether male or female) could flourish without aid; then attachments could be formed in pure generosity with another individual equally adapted to the group, attachments that would be founded upon the acknowledgment that both are free.”—Simone de Beauvoir, The Second Sex (1949)
Every year, Barbara Walters sits down with the 10 Most Fascinating People from that year and interviews them at length. It usually represents a bit of an at-a-glance look at pop culture and media over the past year.
IT’S A CAT WAR!Katy Perry and Taylor Swift are having a major cat-off and it’s getting UGLY! And by “ugly,” I actually mean so fricking adorable I can’t stand it.
If you’ve made a terrible life choice been too busy to follow Taylor Swift on Twitter, then let me clue you in on the fact that she’s recently become the proud owner of Meredith, AKA one of the cutest cats that has ever lived. Taylor’s kitten does normal cat things like lying on her her back while making adorable faces, as well as famous cat things like nuzzling up to her owner’s arm which just happens to be covered in the names of every famous personever.
However, there’s another purrfect cat in town, and it belongs to Katy Perry. Katy’s brown and white tabby Kitty Purry also happens to be all kinds of adorable. Maybe she’s not as spry as Taylor’s little gal, but aging is sexy. See: George Clooney.
