JAY-Z DOESN’T WANT TO BE MISTAKEN FOR A MISOGYNIST

Since even Russell Simmons (who seems so civilized) has been accused of sexual impropriety, you can bet plenty of men in Hollywood are shaking in fear of their own pasts. Jay Z made a gallant effort to separate himself from “those guys” during his concert Sunday in Cleveland. He noticed an excited looking little girl close to the stage and he told her “You could be President some day!” The crowd cheered and she jumped up and down. Jay Z continued “At this moment, America is more sexist than racist!” instantly endearing himself to the females in the crowd. Jay Z knows he has a good life with his wife Beyonce, (who earned 105 million this year) and doesn’t want ANYTHING to mess it up.

TAYLOR SWIFT DOES THE RIGHT THING- THE COURT ARTIST DOESN’T

This courtroom sketch of Taylor Swift is incredible in its awfulness, but we are SO proud of Taylor for taking the time to follow through on this lawsuit and reveal former radio host David Mueller for the smarmy lout that he is. Obviously he didn’t know WHO he was taking on here! He had the colossal nerve to sue Swift after she told his boss he groped her and the boss decided to fire him. Swift’s testimony in court has been confident, smart, and to the point. Mueller’s own actions caused his termination. His goose is justifiably cooked and we wonder if he still has that girlfriend in the photograph of the incident…

GUESS WHO THIS NO-NONSENSE FEMINIST IS!

She happens to be one of the most beautiful Oscar winners in Hollywood AND she recently moved back to the US from Paris after deciding French people were not so friendly! Right – it’s Black Swan star Natalie Portman– she and her husband just bought a big beautiful 6.5 million dollar house in Santa Barbara. Harvard grad Natalie once observed, “Smart women love smart men more than smart men love smart women!” Hence the tee shirt – which, by the way, is a $710 Dior!

ROSE MCGOWAN IS PERFECTLY HAPPY WITHOUT HAIR

We though it might be a whim when Grindshouse star Rose McGowan, 42, shaved her head back in November, but she liked the “liberated” feeling so much that she’s kept the look. Rose IS one of our favorite feminists – she was first to call out Fox studios for releasing a poster ad for “X-Men: Apocalypse” picturing Jennifer Lawrence’s character being strangled. Rose pointed out that the studio was using casual violence against women to market a film. And yes, Fox DID pull the poster out of circulation. Meanwhile, Rose’s husband of 3 years, artist Davey Detail, seems to have no complaints about her missing hair.

AMERICA COULD USE A FEW MORE RYAN GOSLINGS

It’s about time! It took Ryan Gosling declaring the superiority of women to start the discussion going. His honesty – and modesty for a man – is refreshing and very surprising. Ryan was raised in a household of women and he and his girlfriend Eva Mendes have two daughters. He noted that his daughters’ developmental stages far exceeded boys. “I think women are better than men. They are stronger. More evolved. I grew up with women and I’ve always been aware of it.” To our delight, he added “Women are better than men – they make ME better.” And Ryan wants a woman in the White House – “I think America needs a woman’s touch!”

ROSE MCGOWAN KNOWS WHAT SHE’S TALKING ABOUT

Nothing gets past our favorite feminist Rose McGowan. Just three of the 20 films selected for the Cannes Film Festival were directed by women. The festival director said “Don’t blame us “ – implying that the problem is rooted in Hollywood. But Rose isn’t letting them off the hook. She told The Hollywood Reporter “Those 17 who are not women should be forced to walk down the red carpet in high heels!” (Remember the appalling controversy last year in Cannes when women were not PERMITTED on the red carpet in flat shoes!) Rose says “There are so many levels of embedded misogyny that people don’t even realize. It starts with ‘You HAVE to wear high heels’ and goes to ‘We don’t accept you as a filmmaker.’” Hey Rose, when you’re RIGHT, you’re RIGHT…

KATY PERRY IS NOT AS BOLD AS SHE WANTS US TO THINK

Katy Perry donned her handmade “HILLARY CLINTON IS A BAD ASS” t –shirt to entertain at a Hillary Clinton fundraiser at Radio City Music Hall in New York. Katy, 31, is a huge supporter of Cinton, but she’s almost APOLOGETIC about it. She waffles “I’m not voting for her because she’s a woman, I’m voting for her because she’s the right person for the job.” We wonder why Katy (and many women her age) are reluctant to declare they are feminists and want to elect the first female president. (Fear of disapproval?) Being qualified and being a woman are TWO good reasons to vote for Hillary. Being female will be an ASSET for our next president.

GEENA DAVIS COULD LOOK YOUNG FOREVER

146041PCN_StarWarsP#geena

The best way to stay young in Hollywood is to marry a plastic surgeon! The Thelma & Louise star married Dr Reza Jarrahy in 2001 and they have a daughter, 13, and twin sons, 11. When she’s not acting, we’re happy to say that Geena, 59, spends her time campaigning for equal pay for women in Hollywood. She also funded a study revealing that in PG kids movies – there are 3 boys to each girl featured, and the female roles are stereotypically passive. Geena’s pushing for female equality in all areas. It’s sweet that The 6 ft Geena is trying not to look quite so tall next to her husband.

WHAT’S NEXT FOR CAITLYN JENNER: “MOTHER OF THE YEAR?”

AG091339_01cait

Glamour magazine has been scratched off a lot of subscription lists since they named Caitlyn Jenner one of their “2015 Women of the Year.” After the award event, the husband of a female cop killed on 9/11 send BACK his wife’s posthumous award after Glamour gave the SAME award to Jenner. He asked “Was there NO WOMAN in America or the world more deserving than this man?” And we loved him for that. After accepting the award, Caitlyn remarked “The hardest part about being a woman is figuring out what to wear.” This irked many women, among them- Rose McGowan. Rose ranted on Facebook- addressing Caitlyn, she wrote ”You do not understand what being a woman is about at all. We are more than deciding what to wear. We have had a VERY different experience than your life of male privilege. Being a woman comes with a lot of baggage- the weight of unequal history. Woman of the Year! Not by a long shot!” Rose emphasizes that she is NOT transphobic, but like many woman she resents a man putting on high heels and declaring himself female. There’s a LOT MORE to being female. Frankly, we don’t think Caitlyn should have ACCEPTED that honor- we could have admired her for THAT humility.

IT’S YOUR DUTY AS A WOMAN TO SEE “SUFFRAGETTE”

suffragette-10-13CUT

“Suffragette” should be required viewing for all young women. (Those of us who are not so young don’t need to be encouraged – we’ll be there.) Few movies have been made about the grim necessity of the women’s movement because MEN are in charge in Hollywood and they don’t like to be reminded of their despicable behavior. This movie was made BY women (another reason to see it) and it clearly illustrates the fact that until well into the 20th century, women were literally SLAVES with no rights at all, in what passes for CIVILIZED COUNTRIES! (They STILL have no rights in Saudi Arabia and other places -can’t even vote!) Remember what Gloria Steinem said: “Women have to choose – either she’s a feminist or a masochist!” (Above, Cary Mulligan’s character in the sweat shop)

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
