New couple alert?! Not so fast…

Earlier this month, YouTube personality Tana Mongeau fueled dating rumors with Noah Cyrus—yes, Miley Cyrus‘ younger sister. In a video, the blonde beauty referred to the 19-year-old singer as her “girlfriend.”

And while that certainly created plenty of buzz, the internet star is clearing the air after sparking dating rumors with the “July” songstress.

“To be real, I think that I might have started the girlfriend stuff with some YouTube title,” Mongeau explained in an interview with Entertainment Tonight at the 2019 YouTube Streamy Awards in Los Angeles, Calif. on Friday.

“I just love being around Noah. There’s something about her, even before I knew her, that has always inspired me,” the 21-year-old star shared. “She’s so real, she’s so raw. The way she turns her emotions into art and cares about mental health and was born into this life, but turns it into something beautiful, is so inspiring to me. And I love to kick it with her.”

“There is no tea. Like, that is the tea on that,” she continued, seemingly confirming that they were, in fact, not dating. “I literally just like to spend time with her and care about her. Everything else just kind of makes it a mess.”

Aside from the recent video Tana uploaded on YouTube, which fueled dating rumors, both she and Noah have a long history together.

Back in November, the internet personality addressed her friendship with the 19-year-old singer, while also discussing her open marriage to fellow YouTube star, Jake Paul, whom she wed in late July.

When Tana was asked what was going on between her and Noah, she simply responded, “I don’t know.”

Moreover, nearly eight months ago, the YouTube star sparked feud rumors with the “Good Cry” singer, after claiming that Noah “hates” her because of her friendship with Lil Xan (who was the singer’s ex).

Soon after, the “July” singer set the record straight and reached out to Tana.

“lol this is hilarious i deff dont hate you and for sure turned the opposite direction of you no shoulder check,” Noah tweeted in May. “lets hangout and talk about how bitchy girls are to other girls @tanamongeau dm me.”

Despite their interesting relationship, it looks like the two superstars are simply gal pals!

Target employee gifted 30 grand in funds for vacation after customer incident goes south : theCHIVE

Published

By

Last week a man, David Leavitt, who was “Verified by Twitter” to be a real journalist decided to share with the world how one Target employee wronged him by not honoring the price of a marked electric toothbrush. The details of the story will likely get your blood to boil, but what’s so comical about the story is that the man is the one reporting to the world the facts of this story, and not the poor Target employee who didn’t cave to the man’s pressure and chastising.

So I’ll let the journalist himself tell you why he’s the victim here…

Why Amanda Knox Just Put On Her Old Prison Uniform

Published

Amanda Knox is taking something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue to heart.

Ahead of her upcoming vows to fiancé Christopher Robinson, the criminal justice activist—she famously was wrongfully convicted then exonerated in the murder case of her roommate Meredith Kercher—took to Instagram to share how she’s really prepping for the big day. Dressed in a black beanie and what appear to be gray sweats, the ex convict posed for a selfie in her neatly organized room.

“40 days left until the wedding and 267 tasks left on the wedding To Do list,” she wrote. “I’ve locked myself in the craftroom and I’m wearing my old prison uniform. Literally the very same sweatshirt and sweatpants I lived in in Casa Circondariale Capanne, Perugia.” Because, at times like these, comfort is key?

Knox said “yes” to her longtime love back in November 2018 during an elaborate, alien-themed proposal. Getting down on one in their backyard, Robinson presented her with a meteor and a futuristic tablet. “I don’t have a ring but I do have a big rock,” he told her. “Will you stay with me until the last star in the last galaxy burns out and even after that? Amanda Marie Knox, will you marry me?”

And though they’re wedding is set for next month, legally she’s already a Mrs. Over the summer, E! News obtained their marriage license application and certificate, which noted that they pair said “I do” back in December 2018. 

“We filed paperwork to be legally married in December of last year to simplify our taxes and insurance,” the pair said in a statement after the discovery. “But we have not yet celebrated our wedding with our loved ones. This is, frankly, no one’s business but our own, and should be no more shocking than the fact that we’ve been living together for years.” 

Rather than have a traditional gift registry, the couple created a wedding fund. But that does not mean they were accepting monetary donations, despite what reports may have mentioned.

“Thousands of people do this every year because traditional gift registries are outmoded—couples who already live together don’t need toasters and dishware,” their note read. “This practice is so common that popular websites like www.theknot.com and www.zola.com host wedding pages and cash registry funds. The RSVP pages are password protected and the registry pages are not. That is also normal. We shared our wedding story on social media, but we did not advertise our registry or ask strangers to donate. The tabloids sent our registry page out to the world, and then blamed us for their actions.”

The Roles We Play: Crowdfunding Picks

Published

on

By


Figuring out who you are — and who you want to be — can be a difficult process, especially in a world so eager to put limitations on which identities are considered acceptable. This is an especially daunting task for women, who are often suffocated by the restrictive standards of conventional womanhood. Our latest round of crowdfunding picks examines the struggle of identity and the roles, good and bad, that women are placed into — as well as the ones they choose to claim for themselves.

In writer-director Alyssa DiMartino’s short, “Faccia Brutta,” 12-year-old Isabella finds herself being looked at through the critical eyes of her family’s matriarchs at a gathering, and struggles with the harsh and rigid standards of womanhood common in her Italian culture.

“Women in the Wilderness,” a documentary project spearheaded by Katherine Boucher, Caroline Heer, and Louisa Behnke, follows an all-woman adventure team as they embark on a 40-day ride with 14 mustangs across the American West.

In its depiction of Shira, a trans woman who is funding her transition with identity theft, Dana Aliya Levinson’s short, “Fraud,” explores whether we are born into our identity or if we create it. Can we choose who we want to be?

“Good Girl,” written and directed by Grace Zhang, tells us the story of quiet rebel Jo, who is navigating her rapidly changing body and identity in a world that doesn’t seem made for her.

Here are Women and Hollywood’s latest women-created and women-centric crowdfunding picks.

“Faccia Brutta” (Short) – Written and Directed by Alyssa DiMartino 

The social and cultural expectations of womanhood, particularly with regard to objectification and the correlation of beauty with worth, can prove a difficult adversary for many women. In “Faccia Brutta,” which translates to “Ugly Face,” these issues are seen through the experience of a young Sicilian-American girl at a family gathering. Throughout the evening, while interacting with her family’s domineering and hyper-critical matriarchs, she discovers that she is not the only one struggling under the scrutiny — and must decide for herself whether or not to conform to the standards of womanhood her culture has imposed upon her and her family.

This film is written and directed by Alyssa DiMartino, who was inspired by her own experiences of the damage that family members and culture at large can do to the self-image and identity of young women. She notes that Italian culture, like many cultures, has a serious issue with objectifying women and reducing their value to their physical appearance.

“This way of thinking is a vicious cycle that is passed down by generations; inflicting serious harm on the self esteem and mental health of the young women who are subjected to it. I am making this film in hopes of ending this cycle in my family, and inspiring others to do the same,” DiMartino says. “I hope that this film will provide a source of solace for other people who have been through a similar experience, and to challenge the thinking of those who still consciously or subconsciously enforce these standards.”

“Faccia Brutta” will be her thesis film, and she is crowdfunding largely for casting, equipment, and costumes/production design, which will help the project achieve complete authenticity to the Sicilian-American experience.

Help make “Faccia Brutta” a reality by donating via Seed & Spark.

“Women in the Wilderness” (Documentary) – Created by Katherine Boucher, Caroline Heer, and Louisa Behnke

This October, three female horse wranglers will adopt and train a herd of mustangs, and then ride over 200 miles across the American West on a 40-day journey. Their goal? To address the plight of the wild horse and its survival on shrinking public land and preserve the spirit of the American West, all while highlighting the strength of the American woman — and the wild equine!

Along the way, the women will be speaking to Native tribes, ranchers, private industry owners, politicians, and civil servants on each side of the issue. The resulting documentary, filmed by trained filmmakers who will be along for the ride, will showcase the complex issues of policy in an attempt to balance economic development and preservation, as well as the fast-changing landscape of the American West and the adventuring spirit and ability of women.

This ambitious expedition is unprecedented in scale for an all-female team. They will be adopting and training a herd of 14 mustangs, and traveling over 200 miles using horse-packing, the methods by which ranchers explored the West on horseback. With the documentary’s all-women adventuring team, creators Katherine Boucher, Caroline Heer, and Louisa Behnke aim to empower women to challenge societal boundaries and seek opportunities to celebrate the parts of ourselves we feel we have to hide to fit in. These “wild women” hope to imbue viewers with a love for adventure, and the desire and courage to pursue it.

You can help fund “Women in the Wilderness” by donating to its Seed & Spark campaign.

“Fraud” (Short) – Written by Dana Aliya Levinson

“Fraud,” a short film written by Dana Levinson, follows Shira Rose Lowenstein, a trans woman funding her transition with petty credit card theft. After being recruited into an identity theft by a man named Andre, who unexpectedly makes her feel safe and seen, the pair enter into a dance of romance, criminality, and business over the course of a single night.

The central question of “Fraud” is that of identity. Shira struggles with being an addict, her past trauma, and desires more than anything to be loved and seen. She steals others’ identities in order to strengthen her own, which is always in doubt except for one aspect. In “Fraud,” each part of Shira’s identity is called into question, except for her womanhood. Crucially, the film presents trans womanhood as a fixed and unquestionable identity, and provides the opportunity for viewers to see complex and flawed trans female characters.

“I was interested in writing a trans character who was morally ambiguous, messy, gray, thorny… because to me, what true equality looks like in storytelling is when us trans folks are allowed to be all of those things,” Levinson explains in the Seed & Spark pitch video. “It’s an opportunity that cis, straight, white, male characters are afforded without question. It’s time to let us trans girls show you just how messy we can be too.”

“Good Girl” (Short) – Written and Directed by Grace Zhang

“Good Girl”

“Good Girl” delves into the concept of duality: light and dark, masculine and feminine, public and private. All identities are multifaceted, but the ones that we consistently perform are often the ones others attach to us — sometimes to our detriment. “Good Girl’s” protagonist, Jo, is a high school student coping with her changing body and identity in a world with rules that seem arbitrary. With her friend Lucy, she acts out fantasies of what she believes men and women should be like, and she sees herself reflected in the strangest places — like the stray dog that persistently follows her. Gradually, through interactions with friends and strangers, Jo comes to accept the coexistence of both sides of her identity, in all their beauty and horror.

The short is writer-director Grace Zhang’s thesis film, as well as her first work that explores themes of gender and queer identity, which is important to her as a queer Chinese-American artist. Jo’s struggle with exploring her gender and identity are similar to Zhang’s own experiences, the filmmaker has explained. She also aims to combine Eastern and Western aesthetics, mixing Americana with contemporary Chinese art, to further reflect the struggles of contrasting identities.

“Although ‘Good Girl’ follows one specific story, I hope that the themes of perception, emotional repression, and the struggles of finding oneself as a teenager resonate universally,” Zhang says in her Kickstarter campaign.

You can support the production of “Good Girl” by donating via its Kickstarter campaign.
