WTF Is Going On With Nick & Aaron Carter? | Betches

If you’re reading this, you’re probably old enough to remember a golden era of Nick and Aaron Carter. Nick was obviously a member of the Backstreet Boys, who released their first album in 1996. Aaron Carter came on the scene a year later, releasing his first album when he was just nine years old. Aaron Carter was one of the biggest heartthrobs of the late ’90s/early 2000s, and the Backstreet Boys are still one of the most iconic boy bands of all time. Those were good times, but things have been pretty dramatic in the Carter family lately. Just yesterday, news broke that Nick and his sister are seeking a restraining order against Aaron, and the details are a major …

The Don’t Call Me Angel Video Is A Chaotic Mess

2019 is obviously supposed to be the year I die. On Friday, my gay brain almost exploded when Lana Del Rey, Ariana Grande, and Miley Cyrus dropped their new song “Don’t Call Me Angel” and video, from the soundtrack of the upcoming Charlie’s Angels reboot. Let me repeat: Lana. Ariana. Miley. All in the same place. Wearing Victoria’s Secret Angel costumes. It’s really too much to handle, but after a few minutes of deep breathing exercises, I’ve formed some thoughts. “Don’t Call Me Angel” is a chaotic mess. But don’t come for me in the comments, because that’s exactly what it needed to be. I mean, you have three icons with completely different vibes in a heavily themed music video that’s glorified …

Photoshop Fail Of The Week: Another Day, Another Jenner | Betches

I usually try to avoid using Kardashian/Jenner photo editing fails because honestly, this entire series could be about them alone. But alas, they keep giving me material, so here we are. And this one is so, so bad. You would think being super young, beautiful, a billionaire, having chefs and personal trainers, and having your entire body and face augmented by the best surgeons in the world would mean that you can just post your banging body without editing, right? YOU WOULD THINK. It’s like LuAnn says, guys. Money can’t buy you class, and it definitely cannot buy you self-esteem. Here is what Kylie posted earlier this week: View this post on Instagram

The Texas Gunman Failed A Background Check. Here’s What Else We Know. | Betches

It wouldn’t be an American holiday weekend without a mass shooting. Sadly, this is the truth. Over the long weekend, a gunman killed seven people and wounded 23 after he opened fire in a seemingly random rampage in Texas. Police are still investigating the shooting and looking for a motive, but details about the gunman have been released, and a lot of them point to the fact that enforcing stricter gun laws could have helped prevent this tragedy from occurring, if you can believe. Here’s what we know. He had a record The gunman was arrested for a misdemeanor in 2001, according to online records.

NVM: Gypsy Rose Blanchard Is Back With Her Prison Fianc | Betches

Gypsy Rose Blanchard, who is currently serving a 10-year prison sentence after pleading guilty in 2016 to the second-degree murder of her mother, is single once again after breaking her engagement to her fiancé, Ken. Gypsy, now 28, began her prison sentence in 2016. After a few short months, met a man named Ken through the prison’s pen pal system. Some people have all the luck!! After several months of writing back and forth, Ken and Gypsy met in real life, along with her father and step-mother (at least she didn’t have to stress over what to wear). The two quietly became engaged soon after the visit and began focusing on what their lives together would look like after Gypsy’s release. …

Here Are The Women We’re Honoring This Women’s Equality Day | Betches

In any case, “women’s equality” is often framed simply as equality between men and women. Cool, we’re down with that. But there’s always been plenty to do to improve equality among the large and diverse group of women and femme-identified people itself. What’s more, intersectional feminism demands we promote equality for people of all genders, races, socioeconomic or immigration status. And with an administration that has little regard for anyone who wasn’t born white and male, this crucial aspect of feminism is as vital as ever.  Admirers have shipped Abrams as a potential 2020 presidential contender, especially given how her personal story of going into debt to support her family resonated with people across the country. But for now, Abrams …

UPDATED: A Timeline Of Tyler Cameron And Gigi Hadid’s Relationship | Betches

Over the past few weeks, keeping up with the developments in Tyler Cameron and Gigi Hadid’s relationship has made up approximately 60% of my job. If you told me that you’re not getting exhausted, I would say you’re a total liar. There have been a plethora of paparazzi shots, anonymous sources, and outside opinions about Tyler and Gigi, but it’s easy to get lost in terms of what’s actually been going on. To make your life easier (and honestly, mine too), I decided to put together a full timeline of what TyGi have been up to. And yes I said TyGi, just let it happen. Here’s the official timeline of everything we know about, so you can really see what …

WW’s App For Kids, Kurbo, Is Worse Than We Thought | Betches

Last week, most people flipped the f*ck out when WW (formerly Weight Watchers) announced it had purchased and was relaunching the app Kurbo, aimed for kids ages 8-17. While WW insisted the app was not a weight loss app, many people (us) felt like WW was not being completely transparent, and the app was just a thinly veiled weight loss app. Gary Foster, the chief scientific officer at WW International, called Kurbo “an app that teaches in a game-ified, fun, engaging way what are the basics of a healthy eating pattern.” But in an official statement, WW referred to Kurbo as a “scientifically-proven behavior change program designed to help kids and teens age 8-17 reach a healthier weight.” Hmm, so which is …

The New ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Cast Is Iconically Random | Betches

I’ll be honest, it’s been a long time since I sat down and watched Dancing With The Stars. Back when the show first started in 2005, I was too young to really know who most of the people were, and I’m not exactly a ballroom dance super fan. But still, over the years I’ve watched random episodes of DWTS, and there’s a reason it’s now going into its 28th season. 28 is an insane number, but there are apparently still plenty of celebs who are dying to compete for the mirrorball trophy. Case in point: today ABC announced the cast for the upcoming season, and it’s…incredible? Each of the 12 contestants on the new season is more random than the next, and I really …

WW Launched An App For Kids & It’s A PR Nightmare Betches

Weight loss programs and diets are nothing new, but there’s no question that social media and internet culture have pushed the world of weight loss to new places. These days, the name of the game is not weight loss, but wellness. Wellness is a global industry worth more than $4 trillion, and companies are desperate to stake their claim. While we’ve seen lots of new companies emerging in the wellness space, older companies have also been forced to adapt with the times. Enter the company formerly known as Weight Watchers, who created some major controversy this week when they announced Kurbo, a new app aimed at kids and teens. Weight Watchers, which rebranded as WW International (Wellness Wins) last year …

Photoshop Fail Of The Week: The ‘Pretty Little Liars’ Posters Are Full Of Lies Betches

In our weekly Photoshop Fail, we choose one celebrity or influencer Instagram that’s been edited poorly and show you what the tells are of a botched Photoshop job. This is to show you that the bodies you see on Instagram aren’t real, and pretty much every celebrity is editing their pics—even the people you wouldn’t expect. Moral of the story: don’t trust anybody on social media. This week’s Photoshop Fail is one I mentioned previously, and a ton of you guys wanted me to analyze it. This is what’s so scary. To me, the second I saw this Pretty Little Liars poster years ago, I was like, “oh God, kill it with fire.” It’s a horrendous mutation of what women—even these …

A Serial Wedding Crasher Is Wanted In Texas Betches

I remember my freshman year formal was taking place at a venue where some couple happened to be having their wedding. We discovered this because my date, my friend, and I went outside (to do who knows what—smoke a cigarette, maybe?) and then we stumbled upon this other portion of the venue, where we found this wedding. Of course we crashed it. We danced for maybe .5 seconds, took a photo with the photographer, and ate a piece of cake. In retrospect, it was incredibly douchey and crappy to do (and if that couple is out there with an unedited proof of our goofy freshman faces, I truly apologize)—but not as crappy as what a serial wedding crasher in Texas …
