  1. My HEAD may explode about that Aishwarya Rai article. She is gorgeous either way, and the whole thing is so complex and depressing, and-and-and…urrrrrrghghghghgh. On the other hand, good for the guy from Kentucky.

    The world, it makes me feel feelings.

    • Argh, I know, right? I saw the headline and was like “…and she’s less beautiful HOW, exactly?”

      That and the whole “obligation” factor – like because she’s famous and beautiful, she must stay exactly the same as when she was 20. I know that’s how the whole structure of celebrity works – look young and beautiful until the bitter end – but the fact that multiple articles actually used the word “obligated,” seriously and unironically, to describe why she should lose the weight creeped me out. And they call our generation entitled.
