Christopher Cantwell has a knack for getting himself noticed. The 36-year-old white supremacist with an internet radio show and a long history of violent rhetoric was one of the most visible figures at this past weekend’s #UniteTheRight rallies in Charlottesville.
Frosted, glittery, and unconventional for lips, copper lipstick is a tough sell. But Taraji P. Henson is one tough, er, cookie, and her latest collaboration with M.A.C will awaken your appetite for bronze lips. Out September 7, Henson’s second Viva Glam collection with M.A.C introduces two new lip colors: Taraji P. Henson 2 Lipstick, a deep frosted copper, and Taraji P. Henson 2 Lipglass, a golden lipgloss punctuated with flakes of gold, which cost $19 and $21, respectively. Like all M.A.C Viva Glam collections, all sales will go toward M.A.C’s AIDS Fund, which provides financial support to AIDS organizations.
In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, DeMario Jackson reflects on the now-infamous Bachelor in Paradise scandal that temporarily shut down production of the show’s fourth season. Allegations of misconduct swirled around a sexual encounter he had with fellow contestant Corinne Olympios, accusations he feels were fueled by racism (Olympios is white) and a rush to judgement. “I just told my truth.

Christina, 29, has been with her serious boyfriend for several years. For most of their relationship, he’s worked at a start-up — until the company went under four months ago. He still hasn’t found a new job, and it’s wearing on them both. They don’t share an apartment, technically, but he stays at her place all the time (which is nicer, and doesn’t have roommates), and she feels like he’s basically living there rent-free. Whenever they go anywhere, she now pays for them both. She wants to be supportive, but she’s starting to feel uncomfortable with it — and taken advantage of. She works for a marketing firm and, while her paycheck is steady, she’s not made of money. Long-term, she can’t keep this up. She knows he’s trying, and she wants to help, but what if she’s enabling him?
Last time I counted, I had 17 books stacked on my bedside table. I counted yesterday, so as of today, I still have 17 books stacked on my bedside table in a Jenga tower ready to fall onto my face while I sleep. It’s stupid to admit, but here we are: I am reading 17 books at once, at varying paces and with varying degrees of commitment, and I think it’s because the internet and Instagram and group texts and faithfully reading online recipes for dishes I have no plans of cooking have slowly begun to erode my brain. I used to like reading one book at a time, from start to finish. Now I eternally dabble.
On Thursday, The Wall Street Journal reported that the White House is on the verge of implementing a rule to roll back the Obama-era requirement that employers offer health-insurance plans that include contraception. The news was confirmed by “two people familiar” with the new rule’s contents, which they say is very similar to a draft leaked in late May.
