An Analysis Of Scooter Braun’s Shadiness | Betches

It’s been nearly five months since Taylor Swift first began her public crusade against Scooter Braun, but until yesterday, it was a one-sided battle. From last week’s drama over whether Taylor would be allowed to perform her hits at this weekend’s American Music Awards, Scooter Braun stayed silent. Lots of his famous friends spoke out to support him or dispute Taylor’s claims, but Scooter didn’t have anything to say… until now. On Thursday, Braun spoke at the 2019 Entertainment Industry Conference, and he finally excluded from a narrative, and then again in

8 Ways College Couples Are Sabotaging Their Relationship (And Lives) | Betches

Dating is hard, like really hard, especially when you’re a college student. Even if you’ve found the right person, there are countless obstacles that make having a healthy relationship in college feel almost as challenging as trying to make it to your 8am after a night of binge drinking (almost). It’s easy for even the smallest insecurities about your relationship to get the best of you when you’re living in a literal cesspool of horny college students. You may be too clingy, become the psycho girlfriend you used to make fun of, isolate yourself from your friends (rookie mistake, who else are you gonna bitch to when your relationship ends?), or just assume your S.O. can read your mind. All of these …

Is Apple TV+ Worth It? Our No Bullsh*t Review | Betches

You’ve probably heard a lot in the last few weeks and months about the escalating streaming wars, and it’s a lot to keep up with.

Why #LizzoIsOverParty Is Trending Right Now | Betches

In 2019, liking Lizzo is about as much of a personality trait as loving dogs or claiming cheese is the glue that holds your life together—which is to say that it’s not at all a personality trait and just a widely accepted thing people like. Now, I am not suggesting that Lizzo isn’t amazing, because she is. Her music is wonderful and she deserves every bit of success coming to her right now. Lizzo has blown up in the past year and is pretty universally liked, as evidenced by the fact that her songs are in just about every commercial on air right now, she has 6.2 million followers on Instagram, and her shows sell out immediately. “Who could not …

5 Celebrities Who Have Misunderstood Feminism | Betches

Feminism is, at its core, a relatively simple concept. Merriam-Webster GenForward, less than 20% of participants belonging to any racial or ethnic group self-identify as feminist, with most saying they “don’t identify as a traditional feminist, but support women’s rights and equality.” This cognitive dissonance is even more glaring when we look at celebrities’ interpretations of the term. Given their power and influence, it also makes it that much more disappointing. Below are five famous women who at one point or another have refused to identify as feminist, despite very clearly supporting feminist ideas. Celebrities—they’re just 1.

The Betches Study Abroad Guide To Florence | Betches

eeeeveryI know it’s hard to believe every aspect of being abroad was great, but even bad moments didn’t faze me, because at least I was experiencing them in Italy. I was also lucky enough to travel with an amazing group of people who made the experience even better. Obviously, studying abroad is about indulging yourself in, learning about, and adapting to another culture. However, if the people you study abroad with are all douchebags, fake, or unadventurous, you may as well prepare for a bad time.  My time in Florence was so incredible, I still preface a amount of stories with, “when I was abroad…” as though I just got back last week.

I Thought Rolling Loud NY Was Going To Be The Next Fyre Festival. I Was Wrong. | Betches

Justin Bieber Made Fun Of Taylor Swift On Instagram | Betches

It’s no secret that Justin Bieber is not the sweetest candy in the candy jar. I mean…just last week he baby monkey with him on tour to Germany where the monkey was seized and given to a German zoo because he decided it wasn’t worth keeping. So when he posted an Insta story of himself making fun of Taylor Swift over a lighthearted post-surgery video, obviously nobody was surprised. The backstory involves Taylor Swift, Jimmy Fallon, pain pills and Taylor’s mom. What could go wrong? Taylor appeared on The Tonight Show last Thursday where Jimmy asked her if she recently had undergone lasik eye surgery.

The Most Important Moments You Missed At The 2019 Emmys | Betches

This year’s Emmys lacked a host, a decision that proved to be wise for The Masked Singer.  Instagram erupted almost immediately after Michelle Williams accepted her Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie, because she gave a speech that is going to be hailed by white feminists everywhere for the next seven years. Williams apparently was paid as much as Sam Rockwell for her part in , which is great, even if the fact that a woman earning her male co-star is considered commendable is pretty bleak. In her speech, Williams thanked FX and Fox 21 studios for paying her equally and listening to a number of her other demands, such as more dance lessons and …
