Rihannas Unforgiving Feminists Agenda, rightfully so.

Shortly after the inaguration of President Trump, Rihanna joined protesters outside trump tower to show her support for women’s rights and the prochoice movement. She was sporting a controversial and spunky outfit that included a tu-tu over blue jeans and a pink hoodie that read “This P***y Grabs Back”.

Both her song lyrics and participation in recent protests have shown her coallition to the feminist agenda, inspiring women to be proud, strong and independent. Her support of the movement is justifiably appropriate given the history of abuse she suffered at the hands of ex-love interest Chris Brown in 2009. Her cavalier approach to new romance and not needing a man to make her feel comfortable with herself can be seen in her recent lyrics such as “Didn’t you know that I was a savage.” and “F*** a white horse and a carriage.” showing that she is not searching for or in need of the traditional fairytale romance that so many women expect and are tricked into by undeserving partnerss.

Settling for something that they feel is close to the promise of the love story they grew up hearing is one of the disempowering reocurrances that happen to women in modern society that Rihanna speaks out against in the music of her most recent album. She reitterates this idea with lyrics like “You were just another (guy) on the hit list, tryna fix your inner issues with a bad b***.” again foregoing the traditional relationship and saying not every “hook-up” results in a longterm traditional relationship.

It’s safe to say that with a new president of questionable moral character in office, and having suffered a past that involved abuse from a womanizer, Rihanna will likely be involved in the movement moving forward, and we can expect to see these empowering trends to continue in both her music and her actions.

No Vacation for Natalie Dormer Post Game of Thrones Exit

The gorgeous Natalie Dormer has no time to relax even after her exit from Game of Thrones and has already jumped on to more work. Natalie, who played the role of the sultry seductress Margaery Tyrell on the HBO blockbuster, has lots of projects on her plate despite the unexpected death of her character in the jaw-dropping finale episode of season 6. The actress seems to have already moved on to her next project instead of hanging up her boots for a well-deserved break.

The stunning actress was recently spotted in images filming quite a disturbing scene, from the upcoming psychological thriller Darkness, on the busy streets of New York. Fans flocked up to watch her deliver yet another nail-biting performance as she brought real emotions of distress and fear to the scene, with her bleeding nose and disheveled hair adding perfectly to the trauma of her character.

If this was not enough, Natalie also seems to be in the running for being cast as Poison Ivy in David Ayer’s next “Gotham City Sirens”. Natalie would be a perfect fit for the role, she has the acting prowess and the looks to play both the hard-core Poison Ivy and her innocent alter-ego, Pamela Isley.

Seems like we will be seeing a lot more of Natalie in the coming months, and we are not complaining!
