Shaq Wants to Buy Reebok

Shaquille O’Neal is sneaking up on the shoe business.
“I would love to buy Reebok,” O’Neal said Thursday in an interview with “CNBC Make It.”
The retired basketball star’s résumé is already quite extensive: actor, rapper, sports analyst, investor and Papa John’s board member. He’s even dabbled in fashion with Peerless Clothing’s Shaquille O’Neal Collection and his XLG men’s clothing line at J.C. Penney.
But perhaps O’Neal’s recent comments were just him feeling nostalgic. He does have a history with Reebok, after all. Back in 1992, O’Neal — and his size 20 feet — were signed to endorse Reebok’s “Shaq Attaq.”

Still, O’Neal’s basketball stardom made the blue, black and white high-tops, the colors of his team at the time, the Orlando Magic, an instant hit. You see, back then both Reebok and O’Neal were at the top of their game. Then Adidas came along and courted Reebok, acquiring the company for $ 3.8 billion, and positioning itself to compete with rival Nike.
That was a move that O’Neal said “diluted [Reebok] so much to where it’s almost gone.
“I want to bring them back to basketball and to fitness,” he added.
But the shopping spree might be short-lived.

Sander Lak Wants a Piece of Men’s Wear Pie for Sies Marjan

NEW YORK — Reserved, quiet, unassuming. These are words that would never be used to describe Sander Lak.
Instead, the creative director of Sies Marjan is upbeat, engaging, smart, sophisticated — and talented.
Lak, a former designer for Dries Van Noten, is the engine that has propelled the three-year-old brand squarely into the fashion spotlight. His romantic and colorful women’s wear is carried at some of the most discerning retailers around the world, including Barneys New York, Bergdorf Goodman, Ssense, Matches, Browns, Harvey Nichols, The Webster and so on.
One year after launching his women’s collection in 2016, the Dutch designer dipped his toe into the men’s arena, offering up a capsule with a similar sensibility that immediately took hold. And this week, Lak is going all in, showing his first full men’s collection on the runway during Paris Men’s Fashion Week.
Although Lak, who also worked with Balmain in Paris and Phillip Lim in New York, was trained as a men’s wear designer at Central Saint Martins, this is the first time he’s truly spreading his wings in the men’s arena.
Interestingly, Lak’s foray into men’s came as a result of creating pieces for himself that were not offered for sale. “It’s hard for me

Kawhi Leonard Future: All-Star Forward Wants to Leave Spurs

Kawhi Leonard’s is reportedly determined to leave the San Antonio Spurs, as he feels his relationship with the team has been damaged beyond repair. Things between the 2014 NBA Finals MVP and the Spurs have been frosty since he reportedly told the team he was not comfortable playing while rehabbing from the quadriceps tendinopathy that forced him to miss the first 27 games of the season. Leonard made his season debut on December 12 against the Dallas Mavericks, but after playing nine of the following 17 games, on January 13 the Spurs opted to sideline him indefinitely—and he did not play another game during the season.

Elizabeth Olsen Wants a New Costume for Scarlet Witch

Elizabeth Olsen wants a new, less-revealing costume for Scarlet Witch although she acknowledges that they’re more about creating “iconic images” than “representing the average woman.”

Olsen talked about her character’s costume in an interview with Elle, saying that she’s happy to wear a corset, but she’d prefer it to be less revealing. “I like corsets, but I’d like it to be higher,” she said.

“Everyone has these things that cover them—Tessa Thompson

does, Scarlett

does. I would like to cover up a bit. It’s funny because sometimes I look around and I’m just like—wow, I’m the only one who has cleavage, and that’s a constant joke because they haven’t really evolved my superhero costume that much.”

Rugby-Inspired Aedelhard Wants Men to Join Its Team

The new men’s wear brand Aedelhard believes rugby teaches important values and lessons to its participants, and has aligned itself with the sport. That the game can be intensely competitive and at times violent is not lost on the brand.
“Beneath the seeming barbarism and occasional debauchery often associated with rugby lives a sport rooted in respect and a strict code of conduct,” Aedelhard declares on its web site. “It’s a game that instills teamwork and discipline.”
The sport has given the world one of the most enduring pieces of fashion — the rugby shirt. It’s that side of rugby that Aedelhard is tapping into, the “sport, intellect, sophistication and gentlemanly conduct — all derived from the game,” said Darrell Kopke, Aedelhard’s cofounder and chief executive officer.

“Dressing well is a form of good manners, and we’re simplifying the process with pieces that are easy to combine, accessibly priced, well-made and designed with intention,” added Michael Nguyen, cofounder and creative director.

Aedelhard wants to disrupt the technical apparel market with elevated, classically tailored and functional performance apparel. The company considers its pricing disruptive, with trousers retailing for $ 150, blazers, $ 380 and shirting, $ 120. “We’re bringing tailoring for the masses,” said Kopke.

Newlywed Kelsea Ballerini Wants to Have Kids ‘One Day’ But Will Wait — Because ‘I’m 24!’

Kelsea Ballerini and Morgan Evans are married now, but don’t expect the Nashville couple to expand their family any time soon.

“I’m 24, I’m not in a rush,” Ballerini tells PEOPLE. “It’s something we’re both stoked to do — one day down the track.”

The “Legends” singer and her fellow country crooner, 32, tied the knot Dec. 2 on the beach in an intimate ceremony in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

The wedding came at a particularly exciting and stressful time for the bride. The Grammy nominee spent much of 2017 on the road opening for Lady Antebellum, and in November, the star released her sophomore album, Unapologetically.

Watch People Weddings: Kelsea Ballerini & Morgan Evans, available now, on PeopleTV. Go to, or download the PeopleTV app on your favorite mobile or connected TV device.

“My album is like a chronological story, and it ends with the whole story of meeting him, and then being with him forever,” says Ballerini. “It’s very fitting that we got married and kind of end the story where the record ends it.”

But Ballerini and “Kiss Somebody” singer Evans’ story is just beginning, and the couple say they’re looking forward to “everything.”

For much more on Morgan Evans and Kelsea Ballerini’s wedding, including more exclusive photos, pick up the latest issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands everywhere Friday.

“The great thing about both of us is we both wanted to be rock stars. That’s our dream, that’s our goal,” says Ballerini. “When I was younger I was dreaming about touring and stuff, and same with him. So I think it’s just been us making the dream together rather than having it separately and then combining it.”

Ballerini and Evans’s whirlwind romance began in March 2016. They cohosted the CMCs, an Australian country music award show, and sparks flew at the afterparty, where they shared their first kiss. They began dating as soon as they returned to Nashville, and nine months later, on Christmas Day, Evans popped the question.

For more coverage, follow our country magazine on Flipboard.

“Nine months seems like a short amount of time,” says Evans, but “it was pretty obvious something awesome was happening.”

Now with their wedding behind them, the pair look forward to an increasingly busy 2018, as both have jam-packed tour schedules. But distance won’t get them down.

“When you can do everything you want and then share it with someone,” says Ballerini, “that makes for a full life.”

Aubade Wants Consumers to Talk Back

PARIS — French lingerie label Aubade is gearing up to celebrate its 60th anniversary next year with a change of communications strategy that will encourage its consumers to talk back.
With the “Parlez-vous Aubade?” tagline and the #SpeakAubade hashtag, the brand is seeking to internationalize its footprint, especially in Western Europe, and modernize its way of connecting with its clients.
“I arrived two years ago with the mission to take this beautiful diamond and internationalize it,” explained Aubade deputy managing director Martina Brown at a recent event for trade press that included a presentation at the company’s Paris headquarters and a visit to the Paris Opera to see a performance of Mozart’s “The Clemency of Titus.”
Similar events, intended to highlight the brand’s Parisian heritage and outline its new positioning, will be hosted for consumer press in April next year and for digital influencers next September.
Since Brown joined the company, owned by Swiss company Calida, Aubade has diversified its offer by introducing a broader range of cup sizes and more basic items. A collaboration for fall 2016 with Christian Lacroix was a particular success.
“We are working to modernize the French look, to modernize the comfort,” Brown explained. “Comfort and sexiness shouldn’t be a

Iman Shumpert Wants to Be More Than an NBA Player

When WWD interviewed NBA player Iman Shumpert three years ago, his life was much different. Shumpert’s girlfriend at the time, artist Teyana Taylor, is now his wife, and they have an almost two-year-old daughter named Iman Jr. and nicknamed Junie — he’s set to star in a VH1 reality TV show with his family next year.
Shumpert also looks and behaves differently. He’s cut off his signature high top fade — he explains why later on — and feels less inhibited by what it typically means to be a basketball player.
“I’m playing ball. I’m rapping. I’m doing my clothing line, but every time I try to do the other stuff people say that I’m not focused on basketball,” said Shumpert, sounding frustrated. “It doesn’t make sense.”
Despite this, Shumpert is diving deeper into his creative endeavors and relaunching his clothing line, Post 90s, next year, and helping raise money for the hurricane victims in St. Maarten with a jersey he’s designed with his brother. Here, the Cleveland Cavaliers player talks about kneeling during the national anthem, working with fashion brands and his other projects.

Lanvin’s New CEO Wants to Bolster Ties With Art

ARTISTIC DIRECTION: Lanvin’s new chief wants to strengthen its ties with the art world.
In a private presentation on Monday at its men’s flagship in Paris, Nicolas Druz, chief executive officer of Lanvin, displayed a sculpture attributed to Constantin Brâncuși, which he said dated from 1905 and was the earliest known example of the artist’s series of The Kiss sculptures.
“It’s a return to the DNA of Jeanne Lanvin,” Druz, who returned to the brand over the summer as part of a management reshuffle, told WWD. “We need to link Lanvin with art. We are developing a street art project as well.”
The executive believes the Brâncuși sculpture, whose authenticity has been contested, is one of the founding works of contemporary art. Among the guests was Thierry Rayer, a researcher who has delved into the sculpture’s meaning from the point of view of science, mathematics, Egyptology and Freemasonry, among others.
Druz said the brand would be producing a book of photographs of the sculpture and other works drawn from Rayer’s private collection. It also plans to design numbered T-shirts featuring the art work that will be auctioned off to benefit Secours Populaire, a nonprofit dedicated to fighting poverty in France.

Courteney Cox Removed Her Fillers, Says She Wants To Age More Naturally

Courteney Cox recently cut ties with a longtime friend: her facial fillers. 

The 53-year-old told New Beauty that she is currently aging “as natural as I can be” after having all of her fillers dissolved. 

“I feel better because I look like myself,” she said. “I think that I now look more like the person that I was. I hope I do. Things are going to change. Everything’s going to drop. I was trying to make it not drop, but that made me look fake.”

Cox told the beauty website she became “layered and layered and layered” with procedures from different doctors recommended by various pals. It got to the point that she didn’t recognize herself in photos. 

Now, she said, she hasn’t had a procedure in six months.  

“You need movement in your face, especially if you have thin skin like I do,” she explained. “Those aren’t wrinkles—they’re smile lines. I’ve had to learn to embrace movement and realize that fillers are not my friend.”

We’re all about aging naturally and self-acceptance, so kudos to Cox. We just hope Ross, Chandler, Joey, Rachel and Phoebe still make the friend list.

Brooklyn Decker Wants to Help You Get Dressed for a Date

Brooklyn Decker and Whitney Casey’s Finery has a new partnership — with online dating site
Since launching the wardrobe operating platform in March 2017, Decker noted that most feedback has been related to getting dressed for a date. “We wanted to figure out if we could find a solution for this. We said, let’s reach out to the leader in online dating, so we reached out to,” Decker explains of the linkup between the two female-led tech companies. “I think ultimately, the thing we have in common with is probably anyone who’s dating online is probably shopping online,” she adds. “Most of our users do 70 to 80 percent of their shopping online.”
Finery visually catalogs and organizes a user’s outfit using information such as linked e-mail accounts, which allows the system to log clothing purchased online. Utilizing analytics and machine-learning processes, the site is able to suggest outfits for users based on their preferences and past choices.
“We have all of your wardrobe-related purchases. So we can see the colors you like wearing, we can see the way you dress in certain weather, we can see the silhouette of skirts you like to wear, we can see the price

Dascha Polanco Says Hollywood Wants ‘Fake Latinas’

Dascha Polanco of the prison drama “Orange Is the New Black” says she’s been confined off-screen by Hollywood’s attitude toward Latina actresses.

In an interview with Vivala posted this week, the Dominican-American said she has felt expectations to conceal her Afro-Latina features and was even told she looked “too Latina” for a Latina role.

“We have to be ‘fake Latinas,’” Polanco said. “And here’s the thing about ‘fake Latinas’ – when you look at Latinas who are succeeding in Hollywood, they’re super thin and you really can’t tell if she’s Latina or not.”

Polanco, 34, told the outlet that genetics testing determined that some of her roots originate from the Iberian Peninsula and 31 percent from the African nation of Mali ― and they are apparent, she said. 

She said she used to wonder if having lighter eyes and a thinner body would land her more roles. But she doesn’t appear to be hurting for work now.

Polanco has played inmate Dayanara Diaz on “OITNB” since 2013 (Season 5 is now available on Netflix) and wrapped shooting on what Deadline billed as her first starring role in a film in the dark comedy “iCreep.”

“Every day, I am learning how to love myself more,” Polanco told Vivala.

Evelyn & Bobbie Wants to Reinvent the Bra

Bree McKeen, who used to work in finance, started Evelyn & Bobbie in 2013 after spending years struggling to find a comfortable bra that didn’t dig into her ribcage.
“The bra was a great idea in 1933, but it’s time for some innovation,” said McKeen, who is based in Portland.
McKeen’s solution was to design the Everyday Bustier, a bra that’s wireless and strapless but still supportive. She did that by building a patented 3-D EB CoreTM technology that offers a 360-degree hold and helps redistribute weight from the shoulder muscles to the core muscles.
“With most bras, it’s like you are holding up two to eight pounds on a shoelace,” said McKeen. “That’s why we launched with strapless to show how well the technology works.”
The Evelyn & Bobbie bra also works with a completely new sizing system that’s free of band and cup sizes. After 3-D-scanning multiple women’s bodies, McKeen used those data points to create an algorithm built on computational science that matches a customer to their best fit with three measurements. McKeen worked with Jenna Fizel, an MIT graduate, to create the software and algorithm for the sizing system. The bra is made from a seamless fabric with four-way stretch to help accommodate

When Chrissy Teigen Isn’t At The Met Gala, She Just Wants To Watch ‘Really Bad Television’

Of all the celebrities in Hollywood, Chrissy Teigen ranks pretty high on the list of those you’d want to share a drink with.

Unfortunately, it was only 11 a.m. when HuffPost sat down with the 31-year-old model, cookbook author and social media darling as she promoted her new partnership with Smirnoff No. 21 Vodka. 

Teigen was her usual candid self, telling HuffPost she’s a vodka soda kind of girl, because “when I’m drinking, I want to drink” and “honestly, I’m not good at the shaking.” 

She’s a “big fan of anything pretty unpretentious,” which is definitely the vibe of the series of commercials she shot for Smirnoff

Teigen is relatable, and that’s the reason so many people adore her. On evenings she’s not wearing a Marchesa gown to the Met Gala, she and husband John Legend know how to do nights in right. 

“I love watching ‘Black Mirror.’ We sit down, we kind of love to binge-watch TV shows,” she said. “I just finished watching ‘13 Reasons Why.’ I love to be able to cook and see the television from the kitchen and, you know, have a good drink in my hand and just enjoy the night together by way of really bad television.”

Tweets like the one above, which garnered close to 40,000 likes, make Teigen even more accessible, as her inner monologue is consistently being broadcast to fans.

A perfect example of this: After a drink-filled night at the Grammys, Teigen tweeted out a clip of herself making ramen and posted a video on Snapchat of Legend helping her remove her jewelry. 

Not surprisingly, those drunken posts were a big hit with her followers. But Teigen told HuffPost she’s careful not to make it a habit. 

“I don’t say anything that’s going to get me into trouble, unless it’s something that I very much believe in,” she said. “But no, no drunken tweeting. Snapchat can be really fun because people see that they are a part of your life.”

She continued, “But even then you still need to keep in mind that you need to be a good example for everybody and you never want to say anything that’s going to hurt anybody. Just always know that these things are forever.”

Never change, Chrissy.

Hey, Donald Trump, The Internet Wants To Know Who General E. Watch Is

President Donald Trump’s tweets often have us scratching our heads. His Monday morning missives were no different — and people had a lot of questions.

Just after 8 a.m., Trump sent out the following:

His ranting and raving about “fake news” and polls isn’t new, but that last part ― a mention of one “General E. Watch” ― is.

Trump has his own sort of lingo, as we’ve seen with phrases “Easy D!” ― which was loosely translated to “easy decision.” But this one is less decipherable. General E. Watch is not a real person (who should not be confused with the very real General E. Lee) nor does it make sense if Trump had meant it as “generally watch.” The syntax is still a hot mess. Maybe “General E” refers to a general election, and the president is telling us to watch out?

We’re not alone in our confusion. Twitter was perplexed too.

And, naturally, jokes were made. 


One man simply asked Trump what we were all already thinking:

The tweet mentioning General E. Watch has been up for over an hour and has yet to be addressed. Though Trump did send out a second tweet right after that appears to be unfinished:

He must be busy… being the president.

If you or anyone you know has any hot tips on who General E. Watch is, please let us know. The mysterious figure already has a Twitter account.

John Oliver Wants To Make You Finally Care About Gerrymandering

Gerrymandering might not be the most exciting topic in politics, but John Oliver pointed out during Sunday’s episode of “Last Week Tonight” that it’s one of the most important. 

“Gerrymandering has become a very precise science,” Oliver said about the practice of redrawing district boundaries so one party has a better chance of winning. “Interestingly, it is one of the few remaining types of science in which the Republican Party currently believes.” 

While the GOP has certainly benefitted most in recent years, Oliver noted that the Democrats have been pretty good at gerrymandering at times.

Oliver said neither party should be allowed to “dilute our votes” by redrawing district maps.

“Everyone, every one of us, should get an equal chance to make a bad decision which fucks things up for everybody else,” he said.

Dax Shepard Wants To Be ‘Progressive’ While Writing Comedy In This Day And Age

Critics have said “CHIPS” the movie, written and directed by star Dax Shepard, is a buddy-cop comedy featuring “frat-house goofiness,” “exhibitionism” and “homosexual panic.” But Shepard, along with his wife and co-star, Kristen Bell, don’t see it that way. 

When asked earlier this week by The Associated Press if she thought the film was sexist, Bell said, “There are certain things at face value you could say, because we’re exploring the topic, ‘Oh, that seems homophobic or that seems sexist,’ but it’s not. It’s the exploration of the topic and the exploration of the different points of view involved in the topic to open up the conversation to cure the disease that we’re riddled with.”

Shepard sat down with The Huffington Post during a Build Series interview on Thursday and added his own take to the discussion, saying he doesn’t think “sexuality is sexist.”

“I don’t think it’s sexist to like women in yoga pants,” Shepard said of the many references to women’s figures in the film. “My wife is more likely to point that out to me than I am to her. She’s got laser-beam focus ― if someone’s got great cupcakes in some yoga pants, she will see it from 100 yards out [and] draw my attention to it, which I appreciate. But I don’t think sexuality is sexist.”

His co-star Michael Peña agreed before Shepard discussed writing comedy in the current social climate we’re living in. 

“First and foremost, sex is always going to be in comedies. Race is always going to be in comedies. Sexual jokes, those things aren’t going anywhere, but how you deal with them is going to evolve and change,” he said. “So, I do think it’s fun and challenging to have a topic like homophobia be in this movie and to do it correctly. That’s a very fun challenge. The intent isn’t homophobic, the intent is actually to be progressive and still deal with that issue because that issue is always going to be funny ― all those issues are going to be funny.” 

Like Bell said of her husband, “If you really look at it and you hear Dax’s arguments about why he wrote it, he’s a feminist, for sure, and he’s also about the most un-homophobic person you could ever find ― I mean, we waited until everyone could get married before we got married, based on principle.” 

All in all, “CHIPS” is a good time, especially if you’re into motorcycles. The film hits theaters Friday.

Dave Chappelle Wants Comedians To Stop Making The Same Donald Trump Jokes

Saturday Night Live” is experiencing a creative renaissance and its biggest ratings in two decades under Donald Trump’s presidency. But Dave Chappelle has a message for fellow comedians enjoying the fruits of the administration’s blunders: “Trump’s kind of bad for comedy.”

Speaking with CBC on Sunday, Chappelle offered his take on the current president’s relationship with his chosen profession, agreeing that comedy has “a role to play under Trump,” but warning that there’s a risk of regurgitating the same material. 

“Most comics in the states are starting to do the same jokes, just because Trump is so on everybody’s mind,” he said. “So it’ll be nice when we don’t have to talk about him that much.”

Despite his concerns over Trump’s omnipresence, Chappelle said he still believes the state of comedy today is “strong and healthy,” citing the return of some of his favorites like Chris Rock and Jon Stewart to the game.

“I think that most of these guys you see working are wildly courageous,” he explained. “It’s such a strange time, being bombarded with so much information, and I think comedy is an important valve for syphoning through all that.”

In November, Chappelle hosted the first “Saturday Night Live” episode after the election and delivered a stirring opening monologue in response to Trump’s surprise win. After joking that America actually elected “an internet troll as our president,” he recalled a recent visit to the White House for a BET event that made him feel hopeful about the country’s direction. 

 “I saw how happy everybody was, these people who had been historically disenfranchised, and it made me feel hopeful, and it made me feel proud to be an American,” Chappelle said. “So, in that spirit, I’m wishing Donald Trump luck. I’m going to give him a chance, and we, the historically disenfranchised, demand that he give us one too.”

For more from Chappelle, you can watch his two comedy specials that premiere on Netflix this month.

Behind The Tutus, Ballet Is A Boys’ Club. This Ballerina Wants To Fix That.

Ballerina Ashley Bouder is crying. She’s standing alone in a rehearsal studio in front of 20 or so dance journalists and several funders of her small self-titled ballet company, and she’s crying. And I’m pretty sure it’s my fault.

She’s just finished showing us a snippet of pas de deux that she choreographed, and that she’ll perform in just over a week’s time with her fellow New York City Ballet principal dancer Andrew Veyette. The entire evening of dancing is devoted to women choreographers and to women composers. In over 15 years of dancing with City Ballet, Bouder tells the assembled crowd, she’s danced works by about 40 choreographers and can count only seven women among them. She can’t name a single woman composer whose music she’s danced to ― not a single one.

Which brings us to why Bouder is crying. I’ve asked her why it matters to her that more women be allowed to choreograph ballets. What does gender have to do with it?, I ask, channeling the purportedly gender-blind proponents of pure, context-free meritocracy. Ballet is ballet, right? Does it really make a difference if it’s made by a man or a woman?

She takes a deep breath, and begins to answer, her voice breaking before she can get more than a few words out. “I think a lot of it is about telling little girls that they can. I have a daughter. As a kid, I was told that I can’t, a lot. For me, to have my voice be relevant, and for people to listen, is really important. To say what I have to say, even if they don’t like it. I get to say it.” The room erupts into applause, and Bouder wipes her eyes and nods, her short brown ponytail bobbing.

Bouder joined the New York City Ballet at the age of 16, after spending a year in its feeder school. As a member of the corps de ballet, she was soon assigned soloist roles, and quickly promoted to the top rank of principal. For nearly half her life, she’s been dancing in one of the world’s best ballet companies, the keeper of the flame of founding choreographer George Balanchine, whose vocabulary of movement and once-avant garde style long ago became synonymous with American ballet.

Bouder describes herself as a “Balanchine ballerina,” and is admired for her mastery of quick footwork and speedy jumps. Where other ballerinas seem to drape themselves, long and languid, over choreography, Bouder appears to throw herself at it with staccato precision. After watching her attack turns and balances, you wouldn’t be surprised to find that she’d pierced a hole in the stage floor with her pointe shoe.

The lion’s share of choreography performed by City Ballet is by Balanchine, who died in 1983. In his absence, other choreographers have added to the repertory he built with help from Jerome Robbins. Current Ballet Master in Chief Peter Martins, and choreographers Christopher Wheeldon and Justin Peck, in particular, have left their respective marks on the company. You’ve probably noticed one thing those choreographers have in common: They’re all men.

The dearth of women choreographers has confounded parts of the dance world for some time: every few years, the debate over the overrepresentation of men in the ranks of top-tier choreographers, particularly in classical ballet, comes to a new boil before simmering down again. It’s not only choreography where women get short shrift. The ballerina may be the visual symbol of the art form, but behind the scenes, the levers of power and creative control are largely pulled by men. The overwhelming majority of companies in the U.S. are helmed by male artistic directors, and the choreographers they tap are mostly creating work set to music by male composers.

But a few years ago, the debate heated up again when City Ballet performed a program entitled “21st Century Choreographers,” featuring work by a handful of young modern ballet dance-makers, every single one of them a white man. The poster was jarring in its uniformity, and people took notice. “How can an art form be alive,” Dance magazine asked, “when it excludes so many?”

“Women bring a point of view that men don’t have,” Bouder tells me later in a phone interview. “But it doesn’t have to be anything particularly different to the table. It’s about having an equal voice to express our opinions and our feelings, too.” She says that because she’s in a position of power ― a top-tier dancer at a top-tier company, with a sizeable fan base and following. She wants to use it to speak out about inequities in the ballet world. “People will listen, and I think choreography by women just needs to be seen and heard.”

Starting this week, she’s also walking the talk. The Ashley Bouder Project is teaming up with New York Jazzharmonic for an evening of women-created works: two new ballets, both choreographed by women and set to music by women, and the revival of a Susan Stroman ballet set to music by Duke Ellington. They’ll all be danced by Bouder and her friends from City Ballet, including several fellow principals.

Other, more established companies have begun to put on similar programs. Pacific Northwest Ballet presented one last year, and the Cincinnati Ballet just announced that in their upcoming season, eight out of 15 choreographers whose work will be performed are women, five of whom are presenting world premieres.

Bouder hopes that City Ballet will be more conscious as it crafts its programs and picks choreographers, too. The pale male poster fail “was a big turning point,” Bouder said. “It’s not like any of those choreographers on that poster of five white men didn’t deserve to be there. They’re all talented, they all have great voices, and they’re creative and their ballets are good. But it’s really shocking when you go past the poster and you see five men who look almost identical in their black-and-white headshots!”

Negative media coverage of the homogenous programming had an effect, she notes: the next fall season the company performed works by two women, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa and principal dancer Lauren Lovette. “That was wonderful,” Bouder said. “There was a response to that criticism and that public outcry of ‘Where are the women?’” She hopes the small uptick in the inclusion of women isn’t a flash in the pan or a short-lived trend. “We’re such a big company, and people really follow the example of the New York City Ballet, so I hope they will continue to foster the contributions of women in the company. I hope that continues, and I think that it will.”

Boulder says that companies have a responsibility to help close the gender gap in choreography, long before it comes time to craft an all-women or women-heavy program. “I think that special attention needs to be paid, especially in places that foster creativity and choreography, to fostering those young female choreographers and giving them a little bit more attention,” Bouder said. “A little more of a chance to develop, and listening to them a little more when they’re young and say they want to choreograph.” The New York City Choreographic Institute, which is affiliated with City Ballet and has trained many of today’s leading ballet choreographers, should heed her advice: their list of alumni is almost comically male-dominated.

Though companies have a role to play, Bouder points out that some of the inequities that make it easier for men to be creative and to start learning to choreograph early are built into the fabric of the art form. For dancers in the corps, “when a lot of people are young and they have ideas and they want to do things,” the workload for women is heavier than it is for men. In most ballet companies, because of how ballets are structured, women perform more than men. “You put on a ballet like [Balanchine’s Walpurgisnacht Ballet] and there’s one guy and, like, 20 women. [Editor’s Note: It’s actually 24.] At New York City Ballet, our guys dance a lot more, but the women do far more than they do. Even if there are guys who are on every night, there are women who are on in three ballets every night. Which means more rehearsal time, too, during the day. Which means less creative time.” Even women’s stage makeup takes more time, Bouder notes, and so does breaking in and sewing ribbons on to pointe shoes, which professional ballerinas must do on a daily basis. In her early years, Bouder says, “I was on stage every night and then I had to go home and sew my pointe shoes. You’re just preoccupied.” Creativity requires time, and men have more of it than women do.

You need more than time to be bold and take risks — you also need a culture that gives you permission to do it. And Bouder says that boys in ballet are far more likely to get that than girls are. Because girls outnumber boys in ballet schools as well as in companies, she explains, they’re held to a higher disciplinary standard. “There are so many little girls that they need to almost weed them out, the ones who are serious and the ones who aren’t.” So, she says, “you have to be perfect, not only in class but in attitude and decorum and you have to fit in and be quiet. And the boys in some cases are allowed to just get away with murder … but it doesn’t matter because they’re just trying to keep them in the class and keep them dancing, because you need boys to partner the girls.” This means more freedom outside of the studio, too. “And they’re allowed to be creative and they’re allowed to try things, and girls are not. They can just do whatever as long as they keep showing up.”

And then, the boys become men, and they get to make the ballets and run the companies? I ask. That seems like a pretty raw deal for the women. Bouder agrees. “It’s really unfair when you’ve spent your whole life playing by the rules, only to be stifled.” 

Bouder became a mother last year, shortly after a video of her doing an eye-popping pirouette combination while almost nine months pregnant went viral. She wasn’t back to full dancing strength in time to work with the two women choreographers whose works were performed at City Ballet this season. So she’s taking matters into her own hands. “I feel like I’ve gotten to the point in my career where I can get a message out and people will listen and maybe I can make a difference…. So that it doesn’t have to be this way. I want to be a voice for that, and I also want to be an example of someone who is actively trying to make a difference.”

Bouder says that having a daughter has changed the way she thinks about which voices get heard, and which get silenced. And it’s also made her more daring outside of the studio and offstage. “Having my daughter just makes me braver,” she says. “It makes me want to step out and do the things that I hope she has the courage to do.”

The Ashley Bouder Project will perform with New York Jazzharmonic Friday, March 17, and Saturday, March 18, at Symphony Space.

My Wisdom That No One Wants

My Wisdom That No One Wants

On any given day, “Wisdom Collectors,” which can include scholars, poets and general enthusiasts, are lined up awaiting the next nuggets of wisdom. Each word of wisdom builds on previous words of wisdom whether spoken or written by such individuals as Abigail Adams, Abraham Lincoln, Andy Rooney, Angela Lansbury, Ann Richards, Aristotle or Audrey Hepburn. These are just a few of the A’s. The B’s through Z’s are just as impressive. Nancy Hopkins Reily has now dealt with these words of wisdom, sometimes in rhyme, metered, and narrative verse, and presented them in a musical beat that not everyone will recognize-all done with an uncanny imagination that cuts through to the core of every issue and includes the youth and adults. Wisdom Collectors also delve into the living of life such as traveling, cooking, photographing, retiring and preparing for emergencies. “These selective nuggets,” Nancy says, “are welcome to all members and non-members of the Wisdom Collectors whose current membership, by the way, is one person-me.” Nancy’s wisdom began when she was a young native Dallas, Texan and learned that it was okay to say, “I don’t know.” Graduated from Southern Methodist University, she claimed that she wasn’t very sexy if her high heel shoes hurt her feet. As a beginning homemaker, there was nothing like the sound of scraping burnt toast. In raising two children, Nancy realized that each age came in the right sequence. And just as she finished her work as a mother, she became a grandmother. One grandson taught her that Louisiana doesn’t drain very well. When she began her writing career, she declared that fifty percent of writing is just showing up to write and to surround yourself with talented people. Nancy says that the best advice she has been given is, “Drink very little liquid, if any, after six pm.” And, upon reflection she wonders, “Do I want to be a pioneer woman and be among the first women to stop cooking?” NANCY HOPKINS REILY is also the author of “Classic Ou

On Friday’s broadcast of “Real Time,” Maher said “one of the saddest things” about the America that people now live in is that “we don’t seem to want smart people in our lives any more.”

“Smart presidents? Can’t have that. Scientists? What do they know? Newspaper editors? Liars, fake news!” he quipped.

12 Things Every ‘Type A’ Person Wants You To Know


Robert Frost once said, “The brain is a wonderful organ; it starts working the moment you get up in the morning and does not stop until you get into the office.” He certainly wasn’t thinking about Type A people when he said that. They barrel into the office like they’re racing for a pot of gold, and they never seem to lose momentum. It’s as if they’re driven by a motor that never shuts off.

We each have our own understanding of what it means to have a Type A personality, but what does this term really mean and where did it come from? It actually started in a waiting room shared by a pair of cardiologists. The doctors noticed that their chairs didn’t have wear on the backs as expected–the wear was only visible on the front edge of the seats and the armrests, suggesting that patients were literally waiting on the edge of their seats, ready to jump up the second their names were called.

So, the cardiologists–Doctors Friedman and Rosenman–wanted to find out if the strange wear pattern on their chairs was because impatient people are more prone to heart disease. They discovered that their hunch was correct. They also found that people’s personalities tend to lean in one of two directions, which they labeled Type A and Type B.


Most think of Type A people as driven and highly strung and Type B people as carefree and even-keeled, but there’s so much more to it. Type As, in particular, are often misunderstood, as we just don’t understand the motivation behind their behavior.

To fully grasp what it means to be Type A, you need to hear it from the horse’s mouth. Don’t take my word for it–let’s see what they have to say:

1. We believe that winning is the only option.
We’re really hard on ourselves. Our desire to do our best often morphs into a desire to be the best. After all, if someone else does something better than us, then we mustn’t have been trying hard enough, right? This ensures that even the most mundane activities become a competition.

2. We live and die by our goals.
We don’t do anything “just because.” There’s an end aim for everything. That morning cup of coffee? The goal is to wake up. Half an hour of Pokemon Go at lunch? It’s about squeezing in some exercise and capturing more Pokemon than our friend down the hall. Heaven help anyone who slows us down or gets in our way. We’re nothing if we don’t reach our goals.

3. We’re always stressed.
Achieving our goals is so important to us that we often get stressed out about our progress. It’s that specter of wasted time or missed opportunities hanging over our heads that gets us all riled up, which can be really hard on our emotional intelligence (EQ).

4. We squeeze something into every possible moment. It may seem hypocritical that we’re sometimes late even though the rest of the time we’re impatiently drumming our fingers, waiting for meetings to start on time. The problem is that we try to squeeze a task into every possible minute, and sometimes we overdo it. In our determination to avoid downtime, we sometimes inadvertently create downtime for other people.

5. We want you to get to the point.
Skip the long preamble; if we have questions, we’ll ask. There’s no need to waste time on the setup when you have something important to tell us–just tell us. The theme here is efficiency; we’re interested in hearing the main points so we can begin taking action.

6. We hate to wait. We don’t hate being stuck at a red light or cooling our heels in a doctor’s waiting room because we think we’re too good to wait. We just like to be efficient with our time and don’t like things getting in our way. Every minute spent waiting is a minute we could have spent doing something productive. It’s a minute that we’ll never get back.

7. We’re conscientious.
Like “later,” “good enough” isn’t part of our vocabulary. Things are either right or they’re wrong. And they always, always have to be right. No matter what we’re doing, we care too much to settle for mediocrity.

8. We multitask. We’re not being rude, and we’re not bored. We just have a sense that the value of our day is measured by how much we get done, and we accomplish more when we do two (or more!) things at once.

9. We have a tough time relaxing. Relaxation isn’t a measurable goal, and it feels like a waste of time when nothing is getting done. It’s very difficult for us to sit around and “just be”; instead, we prefer to be actively “becoming” whatever lies at the end of our current ambition. Anything else amounts to lost time.

10. We have an unrealistic sense of urgency. From our perspective, “now” is the only time that exists. There’s no sense in putting something off till another time. While that’s often a good thing, we tend to give trivial issues a greater sense of urgency than they deserve.

11. We follow a schedule. Our time is carefully orchestrated so that each day we accomplish what we intended. Again like “later,” “whenever” isn’t part of our vocabulary. Everything gets scheduled and added to lists, and we take great satisfaction in ticking all the boxes.

12. We’re restless. Our motors are always running, so when we have to idle, that excess energy manifests in various nervous habits, such as fidgeting or biting our nails. Don’t worry, we’re not freaking out. This is normal behavior for us.

Bringing It All Together

We know that we can be awfully hard on everybody, but we’re even harder on ourselves. This may be difficult to see because no one else is privy to the perfectionist that’s goading or berating our every move inside our heads. Just know this: We care–we care a lot–and we really are sorry if our personality makes us hard to get along with sometimes.

What other characteristics set Type A people apart? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below, as I learn just as much from you as you do from me.

The Vulva Gallery Wants Women To Know That Body Diversity Is Beautiful

Warning: This article features illustrations of vulva that may not be safe for work. Many, many beautiful illustrations of vulva.

According to illustrator Hilde Atalanta, “all vulvas are amazing and beautiful just the way they are.”

Atalanta would know ― she is the digital proprietor of the Vulva Gallery, a collection of illustrations that celebrate the vulva in all its glorious diversity. She is also the gallery’s primary artist; all of the portraits showcased on a dedicated website and on Instagram are hers.

The gallery’s mission is clear: “The only way to change the way […] individuals experience their bodies is to educate them, and others, about the natural diversity,” she explained in a statement to The Huffington Post. She does so by drawing the many manifestations of female genitalia, over and over again, with few details spared, discussing the variety in her captions along the way.

Thanks to decades of body-conforming fashion ads and a pop culture sphere dominated by ideals, women haven’t always felt that diversity is beautiful. Moreover, a desire to fit into preconceived notions of beauty doesn’t just apply to the ways ladies scrutinize their waists, lips and breasts. Some women seek perfection in their vagina, too.

“In the past decade there has been an enormous increase in labiaplasty amongst young women,” Atalanta explained. Labiaplasty, she clarified, is a cosmetic surgery meant to partly or entirely alter the size of the labia minora (the inner folds of the vulva). “In my opinion, labiaplasty because of cosmetic reasons isn’t a good development. No vulva-owning individual should have to undergo this just because they want their vulva to look like the ones they see on the internet.”

Throughout our exchange, Atalanta used the term “vulva” over “vagina,” correctly noting that the vagina is only the internal part of the female genitals. While we tend to agree with Lindy West, who said that “at this point in our linguistic evolution [the vagina’s] become a general term for the general lady-area,” Atalanta makes a strong case for vulva usage:

The vulva consists of the external part of the female genital organs: the mons pubis, the labia majora and labia minora, the clitoris and the clitoral hood, the bulb of vestibule, the vulval vestibule, urinary meatus, greater and lesser vestibular glands, the vaginal opening, the pudendal cleft, sebaceous glands, the urogenital triangle (anterior part of the perineum), and pubic hair. I think we shouldn’t reduce the vulva just to its birth canal, when there’s so much more to it than that! 

Ultimately, Atalanta says she finds it very difficult to see how far many individuals go to “reach the ‘perfect’ looks.” Not that she doesn’t understand why it happens. “Like so many teenagers growing up, I’ve also been insecure about my own body,” she added.

But she hopes that the Vulva Gallery can, in whatever small way, contribute to the way people view the broad range of body diversity ― particularly, vulva diversity, reiterating to HuffPost: “They are perfect just the way they are. Because diversity is beautiful.”

All This Pug Puppy Wants In Life Is To Go For A Ride On Tiny Scooter

We don’t think this little pooch will be owning a Vespa of his own anytime soon. 

A video uploaded to YouTube features a pug puppy in Udon Thani, Thailand, attempting to join his bigger pug friend on what appears to be a toy scooter. To make matters cuter, the scooter is being pulled by another small motorcycle, driven by an adorable boy is taking his ride very seriously. 

The clip was shared on social media by Viral Hog, but ended up generating quite a bit of attention across the Interwebs when it was shared on Unilad’s Facebook page, where generating more than 3 million views. You don’t have to do much analysis to see why the video is so popular. Adorable kid + chill dog + pug puppy = a serious recipe for success. 

Just observe the adorableness in action. The puppy tries and tries to get back on the scooter but the other dog is all DGAF. Meanwhile the child, who starts the ride off excited, quickly gets down to business, keeping his eyes glued to the road. 

We’ll never know if the pup ever gets to ride out his dreams, but we are sure that this little trio has stolen our hearts. 

If this video has inspired you to get a little ride-or-die pup of your own, consider adopting a rescue pet. The ASPCA is a great place to start your search!

Adam Lyons Wants You to Get “Ice Cold”

Adam Lyons is a little emotional. It’s now midnight in London and June has turned into July. He is sitting in his London flat and received the e-mail. His debut album is now available on iTunes. The 22 year-old tweets out another link to his followers, but this time he attaches a screen-shot of the standard e-mail iTunes sends, stating his order (the order of his album) is ready. His group of loyal fans, who have supported him for a few years now, are busy tweeting up a storm in-excitement. Adam is busy engaging with them as they all celebrate this milestone in his career.

The debut album is called Ice Cold. The 15-track album is a mixture of many genres including Pop, R&B, and Soul. The album showcases Lyons vocal ability and range. No song sounds the same. It also showcases his talent as a songwriter. Every single track was written solely by Lyons. The album was produced by Uplink from Germany. The duo and Lyons started working and collaborating on this album over a year ago.

“It is filled with emotion, passion, energy and commitment.” Lyons states on his album. “I can’t wait for people to have the album, it will be so fulfilling to share the body of work with the loyal supporters and hopefully attract new fans.” Lyons states.

The first single off the album is also called “Ice Cold.” “Summer is my favorite season.” Lyons exclaims. “When Uplink sent me the track to write and record, it instantly gave me a feel good, chilled Californian vibe. I just fell in love with the track.” he states.

(Ice Cold Album Cover Art. Designed and Created by Servando Lupini)

A music video for the single was shot in Los Angeles this past May. Adam sought out Mac Cleary, the director of his first music video “Psycho” to helm this project. “Marc is a very unique individual with a very creative mind. I love how fresh and cool he is and I am in love with his work.” Lyons states.

Cleary also only has positive things to say about working with Adam. “Adam’s always such a team player.” Cleary states. “Whether it’s getting half naked and dunking in a bathtub in public in the freezing cold, or slow dancing with a drag queen on Hollywood Boulevard he’s always 100% fully committed and never questions anything.”

The music video itself was a little different than the previous ones Lyons has done (This was his third). “It was incredibly fun, we basically had a day out and made a video of it. It was very free spirited and stress free. What makes this video unique is our relaxed approach to the shoot and the awesome people involved. My cheeks were hurting from laughing throughout the day. It was a very long day and by the time we wrapped, I was ready for bed, however we had to fit in a few drinks in Hollywood first.” He says with a laugh. The music video was officially released onVevo on June 16th.

While music is his passion, his other passion is dance. Lyons is currently one of Rita Ora’s dancers during her 2015 UK festival tour. Stops already included the Radio 1 Big Weekend, Capital FM Summertime Ball and Wireless Festival. This past winter he performed The Royal Albert Hall with Strictly Come Dancing stars Anton and Erin as one of the six world class ensemble dancers for their Christmas Show followed by the UK/Ireland Tour of ‘That’s Entertainment’. He has taught and performed all over the UK and beyond.

In the last two years, I have written about Adam Lyons numerous times. As someone who is not in his field of work, it has been interesting watching from the sidelines as he navigates the interesting, exciting, and sometimes chaotic entertainment world. His journey has not been easy and it is not over yet. However if anything this has helped to shape Lyons into the true artist that he is today. Lyons drive and determination for success in whatever he does is apparent and can even be felt from across the pond. Even though it has been a few years, it still surprises me the amount of time and energy he puts in every one of his projects. I see his career continuing to progress as time goes on. I can’t guess where it will end up, but what I can say is Adam Lyons will give everything he has on his way there.

Adam Lyon’s debut album Ice Cold is available on iTunes as well as other music streaming services and stores. To view the video for the single “Ice Cold” you can view it here. For more about Adam Lyons, visit his official website.

Florida Man Fired After Facebook Post Saying He Wants To Marry His Dog

Ryan Uhler thought he was being funny when he took to Facebook to compare marrying his dog to same-sex marriage, but he quickly found himself in the doghouse at work.

Uhler, 32, a resident of Cape Coral, Florida, posted the following message the day after the Supreme Court’s June 26 ruling that gay marriage is legal everywhere, according to

”How is marrying a dog different if you love them? Today I hope we can focus on doggy-style love. I love my dog Rocco, and he loves me. Hopefully one day we can be married.”

On Tuesday, his employer, Grace Investment Group, fired him from his position as a digital marketing specialist.

“I was blindsided,” he told The Huffington Post. “I didn’t think anyone there knew how to use Facebook.”

Uhler told The Huffington Post he didn’t mean anything derogatory by the post, and has no problem with the Supreme Court’s decision.

However, he also admits being aware that likening same-sex marriage to an animal wedding is a cliche often used by critics of LGBT rights.

“I’m very neutral about politics. Sometimes, I will try and get a reaction to spark comments and responses.” Uhler told The Huffington Post. “I really didn’t want to offend. I have gay people I know and love and I wouldn’t want to offend them, but they know my sense of humor.”

He said he simply likes to go on Facebook and “stir the pot” sometimes in “either direction,” he said, according to the Palm Beach Post.

Uhler said company officials told him the Facebook post was the reason he was being fired and claimed they told him they were uncomfortable with the connotations of bestiality.

“It wasn’t about that at all,” he said. “It’s about loving a dog. People have told me, ‘I have a dog and I’d make that joke too.'”

Grace Investment Group hasn’t confirmed whether the post was why Uhler was canned, but it doesn’t have to: Florida is an “at will” state, which means employers can fire workers for any reason and without notice, according to

Uhler, a married man, may be out of work, but he joked to NBC-2 that he would indeed marry Rocco if he were allowed.

However, he’s not laughing about being unemployed.

“The reason I’m coming forward about this is that I don’t want anyone to make the same mistake I did about posting jokes like this on Facebook,” he told HuffPost.

The New Algorithm That Wants to Make You a Better Dresser


If computers have anything to do with it, crafting a perfect, compliment-attracting outfit will become less about stylish instinct and more about a string of numbers, run digitally and crunched to create a perfect combo.

Raquel Urtasun, a University of Toronto computer scientist, worked to develop software that compares your #OOTD-type photo with a library of highly rated looks studied on Chictopia, an outfit-sharing site that allows users to post pics and vote on others. From there, the program will offer suggestions based on similar outfits that scored well (for example, if you show it a pic of yourself wearing a color-block minidress, motorcycle jacket, and heels, it might suggest subbing out your stilettos for booties if similar outfits tracked higher with the different shoe type).

The program also takes into account your location, the background of the photo, and any clues you’ve provided in the description, like specifying that the outfit is for a particular situation.
