-She told the Times, "we're not representing our lives truthfully.""Like when you're yelling at your child, you're not taking a selfie of you being a horrible parent. No, you're waiting for the perfect selfie. 'Do I look thinner now?''Do I look great?' It's this false projection of one's life. Hollywood has now gone global. Everyone's Hollywood now."
-Says she believes (based on articles she's read) that social media has contributed to a rise in depression, and that it's "frightening" for young people to have that "false sense of acceptance based on a picture"
This is her second book. Her first, The Body Book, was a manual on health and self-care & was published in 2013.

Former One Direction member Zayn Malik tweeted the following earlier, and theories to whom he was throwing shade started.
Setting trends :)— zayn (@zaynmalik) January 17, 2016
OPTION 1: LIAM PAYNE
Zayn's ex-bandmate and ex-friend Liam Payne posted a video this moring showing off his rapping skills, and people thought that Malik was throwing shade to him with his tweet, reminding everyone once again that they're not friends anymore.
IG | fakeliampayne: Little Song I wrote for fun yesterday https://t.co/zt9T306PIU— Liam Updates (@LJPayneUpdates) January 16, 2016
OPTION 2: JADE THIRLWALL
Jade Thirlwall, bandmate/friend/sister from another mistress of Zayn's ex-fiancée Perrie Edwards, debuted her new grey hair today, so she's option number two because Malik could have been talking about his hair instead of his music.
OPTION 3: JUSTIN BIEBER
Another person that debuted a new hair color today was Justin Bieber. Even though the Canadian singer didn't dye his hair grey like Malik's, people still think that his shade could have been thrown to him.

ONTD, who do you think he's shading?
A new children's book, authored by Ramin Ganeshram and published by Scholastic, depicts George Washington's slaves as happy and joyful as they go on a fun-filled adventure to prepare a beautiful birthday cake for their master. The book ends on a happy note, with the slaves wishing Washington a happy birthday.
Fusion points out that A Birthday Cake for George Washington uses the names of actual people owned by George Washington, but fails to describe how the president schemed to keep Hercules, Delia, and her siblings enslaved by breaking the Pennsylvania Gradual Abolition Act and regularly shipping his slaves back to Virginia so they would never be freed in his lifetime. Washington also endorsed brutal corporal punishment for the slaves he found to be "lacking". Hercules himself ran away to freedom from the White House on February 22, 1797, the day of Washington’s 65th birthday - without his daughter, from whom he had been separated.
Librarian Eli Campbell says: "Fully developed humans no doubt have the capacity to grin, smile, giggle and laugh but when this image of happy enslaved people is repeatedly portrayed in children’s literature it substantiates slavery as acceptable for black people by indicating their acceptance of this situation and it thus continues to dehumanize".
Here's how Scholastic described the book:
Everyone is buzzing about the president’s birthday! Especially George Washington’s servants, who scurry around the kitchen preparing to make this the best celebration ever. Oh, how George Washington loves his cake! And, oh, how he depends on Hercules, his head chef, to make it for him.Hercules, a slave, takes great pride in baking the president’s cake. But this year there is one problem — they are out of sugar. This story, told in the voice of Delia, Hercules’s young daughter, is based on real events, and underscores the loving exchange between a very determined father and his eager daughter, who are faced with an unspoken, bittersweet reality. No matter how delicious the president’s cake turns out to be, Delia and Papa will not taste the sweetness of freedom.
Andrea Davis Pinkney, VP of Scholastic, said that "Even though he was a slave, everyone knew and admired Hercules ― especially the president!".
The author herself, Ganeshram, decided to dig in her heels and defend the book, saying she did a lot of "research" and knows for a "fact" that Hercules was "admired and in-charge, despite his bondage". She also feels people need a more "nuanced" understanding of slavery.
In our modern society, we abhor holding two competing truths in our minds. It is simply too hard. How could one person enslave another and at the same time respect him? It's difficult to fathom, but the fact remains it was true. We owe it to ourselves — and those who went before — to try and understand this confusing and uncomfortable truth. To refuse to do so diminishes their history to one-dimensional histories that may give comfort to some but ultimately rob us all of the potential for real understanding.
After getting enormous backlash, she deleted her twitter.
UPDATE! After initially standing by the author and this book, the backlash became too big to ignore, and Scholastic just announced they are stopping the distribution of A Birthday Cake for George Washington. thank you __planitbremix for the update!
hope this is alright mods
They described their collection as "primitive" and "wild.

Netflix has acquired the rights for Ellen Page's new movie 'Tallulah' which co-stars Allison Janney. The film is written by Sian Heder who also writes for 'Orange is the New Black'.
"Page plays a rootless young woman who takes a toddler from a wealthy, negligent mother and passes the baby off as her own in an effort to protect her. Her decision connects and transforms the lives of three very different women, including Janney’s character, who mistakenly believes she’s the child’s grandmother."
The tweets that were deleted later on read:
After receiving fan concern, he later on deleted the tweets and reassured the fans that they were indeed on speaking terms.
He also left these gems:
