Miley speaks for us all.
the face omg
Yeah, because Miley Cyrus should be throwing stones. Not that I don’t agree that was a superb diss.
Eh. It’s Justin “Anne Frank would’ve been a Bieliber” Bieber. After that one, Miley’s going to have to work pretty hard to be a worse mess than that little asshole.
I like Miley Cyrus a lot and always have. Her public persona has always been one of confidence, empowerment, facing your fears and following your passions. Her music may not be everyone’s cup of tea (I’m a pop music fan and I think she has a cool voice but YMMV), but since she was a wee teenager, she’s written consistently positive songs about how it’s okay to be flawed and be scared or worried that you’re not good enough and that it doesn’t make you less of a person to fail to live up to other people’s ideals.
Generally speaking, she’s articulate, outspoken, funny, and largely unconcerned with the media’s creepy micro-criticism of her style, her body and her decision-making. I think that is a valuable message to send to young girls.
She is also passionate about LGBT rights, to the extent that she got a tattoo in support of marriage equality last year and rallies her fans to not support companies that donate to anti-gay lobbyists.
Soooo I kinda do think she can afford to throw a stone or two. :)
This is amazing.
Can someone from the sciencey side of tumblr please explain this ?
This is called shape memory. It’s made from an alloy of titanium and nickel (I believe it’s called nitinol). It has the ability to “remember” the shape it’s taken.
When cold you can bend it whatever which way, but once you heat it (or in this case put it in what I presume is hot water) it will take the original shape.
i fell in love with him like ketchup falls out of a bottle: slowly, and then all at once.
oh my god you managed to one up john green.
Josephine Baker, later known as ‘Bronze Venus’, ‘Black Pearl’ and ‘Créole Goddess’ was born in America in 1906 and later moved to France to become a singer, dancer, and actress. She was the first African-American woman to star in a major motion picture, and became famous worldwide.
Though she grew up as a maid in wealthy white households she eventually became an exotic dancer in France, famously appearing in next to no clothing, and became a French citizen in 1937.
Ernest Hemingway referred to Baker as ‘the most sensational woman anyone ever saw’ and she received approximately 1500 marriage proposals in her life time. She became a muse for Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Pablo Picasso, and Christian Dior. She had a variety of exotic pets including a cheetah named Chiquita, a chimpanzee named Ethel, a pig named Albert, a snake named Kiki, a goat, a parrot, parakeets, fish, three cats, and seven dogs.
When WWII broke out, Baker became a volunteer spy for France, and assisted the French Resistance by smuggling messages written in invisible ink on sheet music. She made great efforts to aid those in danger of enemy attack, sent Christmas presents to French soldiers, and smuggled information she gathered in Spain back to France by pinning notes containing the information on the inside of her underwear. She was awarded the Medal of Resistance with Rosette and later named a Chevalier of the Legion of Honour.
Baker also aided many civil rights movements by refusing to perform to segregated audiences and storming out of a club in Manhattan with actress Grace Kelly after she was refused service. She worked with the NAACP and spoke at a Washington march alongside Martin Luther King Jr. as the only official female speaker. Baker was actually asked by Martin Luther King Jr.’s widow to take his place as leader of the American Civil Rights Movement, but Baker declined on the grounds her twelve adopted children ‘were too young to lose their mother’.
Baker died in 1975, four days after her final show, attended by such names as Mick Jagger, Shirley Bassey, and Liza Minnelli.
Oh and she was queer and had a relationship with Frida Kahlo. All around badass.
Still waiting for her movie. And appearances in period dramas.
I shit you not… she’s one of the first 3 women I’d time travel to meet… and I’d probably faint when she shook my hand.
GUHHHH… and her body was fucking amazing.
^ ALL OF THIS RIGHT HERE
SUCH an amazing queer woman and SUCH an utterly, incredibly beautiful one as well…inside and outside…
She’s absolutely one of the people from history I would LOVE to be able to meet…she was one truly amazing lady <3
