In which we chronicle the inexorable decline of Justin Bieber‘s career. More
Perhaps inspired by the warmth and excitement with which the world welcomed Gywneth Paltrow‘s GOOP newsletter,
registered dietitian 39-year-old fart enthusiast Cameron Diaz has decided to get on the lifestyle train by writing a nutrition book herself. The book will be geared towards teenage girls, who are looking a little chunky these days. More
Every once in a blue moon, something manages to become viral not because it’s “cute,” “fail” or “WTF,” but because it fills one of those rare vacuums left in pop culture. Up-and-coming Youtube rap sensation Kitty Pryde manages to do just that with her ear-smacking combo of humor, sex, hashtags, and self-awareness. More
In the coming battle that will constitute the Teen-pocalypse, there are many things working against us over-18s: we’re bad at skateboarding, we’re clumsy with social media, and we’re simply not as balls out when it comes to hand-to-hand combat. But there’s one thing those crazy kids have yet to master, and that’s figuring out how to get drunk without poisoning themselves/each other. More
What’s naughtier than black, lacy lingerie and a blonde wig? Black, lacy lingerie and a blonde wig in a house of God. Rihanna has officially entered her “Like A Prayer” rebellious Christian teen phase. More
Michele Bachmann is wary of laws that would keep bullies from “expressing themselves.” She thinks those laws might try to “turn boys into girls.” Hint, hint. More
90210 is back, which means that every Tuesday you get to read our breakdown of the previous night’s episode. And since the opening sequence is so obsessed with numbers, we decided there’s no better way to tally up the crazy moments from each ep. Well, and each week we highlight the most unrealistic element of the episode, because this is Beverly Hills — there’s plenty of drama. More
The one quibble I have with “Chasing Pavements, Part 2″ is that Fiona’s realization that she’s gay seems more added on for the extra drama than when characters in prior seasons came out. Still, the conclusion was a really solid episode, and the subplots — Alli’s math crusade, the strange attraction between Anya and Owen — worked nicely. More
For the most part, the discussion of sex in the Twilight books and movies is fairly problematic: Bella really, really wants to become a vampire (have sex), but Edward, who is a vampire (a sexually experienced older guy) gets to decide when she “loses” her humanity. Despite her arguments that she knows what she wants and is ready, he makes her wait until what he’s decided is the right time.
So, we won’t be modeling our own relationships after Edward/Bella anytime soon. However, the inclusion of sex in this crazy-popular series — especially a steamy scene in Breaking Dawn where they finally consummate their relationship — seems to lead to a more relaxed discussion about sex itself.

The Candie’s Foundation paid Bristol Palin seven times what they spent on pregnancy-prevention programs in 2009. – Maybe they figured that Bristol was example enough, but then again, she makes being a teen mom look pretty glamorous. (ThinkProgress)
I’ve gotta say, I wasn’t expecting Fiona’s deposition against Bobby, her boyfriend who physically abused her last season, to be so fascinating. Fiona’s always been a flaky, spoiled rich girl, yet in “Chasing Pavements, Part 1″ we see her as a recovering addict who manages to keep a tight grip on her strength even as Bobby tries to paint her as her former self. Spoiler: She wins! But not without several interesting plotlines being set up for next week… Like when she tries to make out with Holly J! More
Let’s start a slow clap for Holly J. Formerly the show’s annoying little gnat of a perfectionist, she’s grown into a wholly sympathetic character. And how did she get there? By self-sabotaging every step of the way. “Hide and Seek, Part 2″ concludes with Holly J playing her own doctor (with embarrassing results), and Alli deciding whether she should return home. More
A 2008 study of “a racially and ethnically diverse” group of 58 high school students has led the Guttmacher Institute to determine that although teenagers use the Internet for socializing, their primary source for sex education is still friends and family. Granted, it’s a very small sample, but it’s encouraging that teens interested in having sex are seeking out reliable sources. More
Now here’s the kind of excitement that Degrassi is best at: Two of its central female characters, Holly J and Alli, put themselves in danger this week but were too stubborn to make things right. Alli’s refusal to go home and either stay with ex-boyfriend Johnny at university or continue on to Toronto, plus Holly J’s propensity to push herself to her physical and emotional limits at her internship, provide the perfect lessons on how to add drama to your life.
