Sexting might just be the great artistic medium of our time. Simultaneously intimate and cold, those pixel-wrought nudes will be all that’s left of human civilization when we’ve finally nuked each other to oblivion. More
Bea Arthur was a pretty cool lady. She played one of TV’s first feminist characters on All In The Family, and of course, she captured our hearts as Dorothy Zbornak on Golden Girls. She was also pretty foxy. Hence, it stands to reason that when an iconic painting of not only Bea Arthur, but Bea Arthur topless goes up for auction, the bidding war would be high stakes and fierce.

Chris Brown has a monster mural outside his home that is terrifying children. This, I suppose, will come as a surprise to people who thought that Chris Brown would be an excellent and gracious neighbor. You thought wrong. More

As some of the cutest and sleepiest beings that evolution’s ever brought us, they are bound to occupy your thoughts quite often. Plus, if you think about it, they are basically the princesses of the animal kingdom. Big, lovely eyes? Check. Ladylike demeanor? Check. Sophisticated handle on beauty? Check. A tendency towards laziness and vanity? Check and check. Hence, I invite you to feast your eyes upon these sketches by artist/genius Phillip Light, which are aptly titled “Disney’s Sloth Princesses.” So sleepy. So…regal. More

Will we ever get tired of looking at classic paintings of beautiful women Photoshopped to look fashion model thin? I don’t think so! In a similar vein to Anna Utopia Giordano‘s nifty series of photoshopped paintings, artist Nazareno Crea has produced a series called “Alpha Beauties” for which he retouched the subjects of the great paintings of yore to fit our modern standards of beauty: high cheekbones, big eyes, narrow hips, and skinny, skinny, skinny. Looking through them, I find the effect to be downright uncanny, so I’m judging his work to be effective. I realize it’s not a new practice to point out how arbitrary our cultural standards of beauty are; feminist artists have been doing it since the 1970s. But as those standards continue to hammer us every day, it’s still nice to have a reminder once in a while. Look through these side-by-side comparisons of his images with the original paintings and see if you don’t agree; there are lots more to be found on Crea’s website. More
Have you ever wondered what various female superheroes would look like in outfits that covered more than their bathing suit places? Personally, I have not, because I am a disgusting perv who wants all fictional characters to be as naked as possible at all times. But apparently I’m in the minority, as a series of drawings of fully clothed superheroines by comic book/webcomic artist Michael Lee Lunsford is swiftly going viral on the internet. More

So, Jay Z was pretty much the best thing at the 2013 Grammys. Not because of his win for “No Church In The Wild,” although that is a good song, and really adds something to The Great Gatsby trailer. Not even because Jay Z is married to Beyonce, who wore some kind of pants suit, because I guess when you are Beyonce you can pretty much do what you want. No. Because of this. Right here: More
