By a vote of 78 to 22 the Senate has passed the Violence Against Women Act. So there are 22 douche bags running the country right now who loooooOoooove violence against women, I guess. They were all men, by the way.
“VAWA expired during the previous Congress, and because of Republican opposition to provisions for Native American, undocumented, and LGBT victims of domestic violence, the different versions approved by the House and by the Senate were never reconciled, and the bill died without final passage at the end of 2012.Since its inception in 1994, VAWA has established a system for helping women in danger. The law created the National Domestic Violence Hotline, made stalking illegal, and helped drive down the number of partner homicides.”
22 men opposed that. See who they were at Think Progress.
• Carrie Underwood squashes rumors that she and Taylor Swift hate each other.
“In every magazine, in pretty much every (sic) newspaper or on gossip TV shows, they can just get away with it by saying ‘a source said’ or ‘a friend said’ or ‘an insider said,’” the “American Idol” alum spilled. “I’ve read the most ridiculous things about myself when people do that.”
Well, there you go. Unless the shade is coming from Taylor’s end, there is your final answer.
• Allison Williams, or Marnie from Girls, wrote a letter to Twitter for Marie Claire. It’s just as boring as something Lena Dunham would write.
I have received numerous invitations to join you in a relationship, and i figured it was time to respond to your advances.
First, let me say: it’s not you, it’s me. I think you’re great. The whole world agrees with that. You’ve accomplished amazing things, and anyone should be proud to be with you. You make me laugh, and you make me cry. You are the center of attention no matter where you are, and I don’t know of any other obsession that more people share. It’s very difficult to remember the world before you were in it. On a personal note, Girls probably wouldn’t be as successful without you.”
Read the rest here. If you dare. I like reading what celebrities write, it’s like watching a dog walk on its hind legs.
• Rihanna’s music video for “Stay” is just her taking a bath and looking sad. Bummer.
