Teen Vogue Is Evolving Thanks To Elaine Welteroth

You may have noticed that Teen Vogue is getting political. At first, this may seem surprising. But to those who have been following the changes at the magazine, it was inevitable. Teen Vogue was recently taken over by a new editor-in-chief committed to making the publication more inclusive and aware of the world we live in. The new E.I.C, Elaine Welteroth, has created an editorial vision that’s expanded and prioritized its coverage of politics, feminism, identity, and activism as it relates to Teen Vogue’s audience.

This has caused a huge shift for the publication. Teen Vogue’s website has increased by 6.5 million unique visitors since last year when the magazine’s leadership pivoted. Welteroth is just the second person of color at a Conde Nasté subsidiary to hold a E.I.C position, and has more than risen to the challenge.

Diversity is a key component of her editorial strategy. Young readers are hungry for content that reflects a broad range of experiences, which is something Welteroth undoubtedly built upon from her time on Teen Vogue’s YouTube page hosting a show called “3 Steps To.

The new E.I.C may be the youngest in Conde Nasté’s history, but she’s proven that “serious” topics like religion, business, and politics should not be reserved strictly for older generations.

Soccer Player Mistakenly Thanks His Wife AND Girlfriend On Live TV

A Ghanaian soccer star may be in the doghouse after giving an awkward live TV interview where he mistakenly thanked his wife and girlfriend.

Mohammed Anas, who plays for South Africa’s Free State Stars, had just been named “man of the match” when he made the Freudian slip of the tongue during a post-game interview Friday night.

“Firstly I appreciate my fans,” Mohammed Anas began, “and my wife and my girlfriend.”

Within seconds of catching his mistake, he quickly backtracked with some nervous-sounding laughter.

“I mean my wife, sorry for saying, I’m so sorry, my wife,” he said. “I love you so much. I love you so much from my heart.”

The 22-year-old scored twice during the South African Premier Division game, the Telegraph reported. But his gaffe left internet users wondering what may have been going on off field.

Here’s hoping the “man of the game” is still “man of the house”?

Mom Thanks Kind Cashier Who Took The Time To Comfort Her Restless Son

A routine shopping trip turned into something more for one mom after a cashier went “above and beyond his duty” for her son.

On Feb 18, Lauren Walker visited a Marks and Spencer food hall in Scotland with her 10-month-old son and her mother. During their shopping trip, Walker’s son, Alistair, grew restless. When the family reached the checkout, Alistair recognized the cashier as the man who said, “hello” to him when they first arrived and yelled, “Hiya hiya!” That’s when the cashier went above and beyond and comforted Walker’s restless son by letting him help behind the checkout.  

Walker was so moved by the cashier’s kindness that she posted about her experience on the official Marks and Spencer Facebook page and shared a video of Alistair helping the cashier. In her post, she wrote about how much her son enjoyed spending time with him.

“He smiled and squealed the full way through it because he was having so much fun!” she wrote in her post. “This man made my shopping experience so much easier and the fact he took time with my son as well was great.”

Walker told The Huffington Post she and her son have never experienced something like this while out shopping. Once Walker finished up paying, Alistair didn’t want to leave his new friend.

“This is why I recorded it while my mum was packing the shopping because it was so kind of him and you could see he was great with kids,” she said. “My son wasn’t happy when it was time to leave because he was enjoying himself too much!”

Walker hasn’t seen the cashier since, but did receive a reply via a Facebook comment from Marks and Spencer. 

“It looks like your little one was having a great time and it’s really good to see how our colleague was so helpful and interactive with our customers,” the company wrote. “I’ll make sure this is shared on our internal employee page and that our Store Manager gets to hear about it too! We can then give him the recognition he deserves.”

When asked if she had anything else she’d like to say to the kind cashier, Walker said she wanted to say, “thank you.”

“He went above and beyond his duty of care just because he thought all he was doing was his job!”

Chrissy Teigen Would Like Everyone To Stop Worrying About Her Baby, Thanks

Chrissy Teigen wants the naysayers to know she’s got this whole raising-her-own-child thing under control.

On Tuesday, the model posted an adorable video on Instagram of her 8-month-old daughter Luna waving to her daddy.

”We miss you, papa!! Can’t wait for you to come home!” Teigen wrote in the caption.

In parentheses, she addressed her many parenting critics and sanctimommy followers: “Yes she has rosy eczema cheeks, yes we are taking care of it, no it’s not a gluten allergy, no it’s not our makeup, no it’s not from our perfume, yes she’s just a baby.”

Yes, Luna has loving parents who care about her well being. Let’s direct our concerns toward people who actually need help.

Thanks to David Letterman, I Have a Wife, Job and Best Friend

2015-05-09-1431194449-242350-Dave1.png

Five words. Just five words: Revolutionary. Hilarious. Mischievous. Subversive. Anarchical.

At age 14, I would have had no idea what four of those words meant, but looking back, that is surely why David Letterman’s short lived 1980 morning show enthralled me. It’s why I have been watching Late Night and Late Show for what? More than 30 years.

Also, at age 14, there’s no way I could have known that the guy giving a canned ham to a monkey washing a cat would be 51 percent responsible for my happy marriage, my career in TV comedy and my cherished friends. Yes. 51 percent. Trust me. I did the math.

I became a Page (think Kenneth from “30 Rock”) at NBC in Rockefeller Center in 1989 for one reason: to get as close as I could to the epicenter of revolutionary mischievous hilarity.

  • I was mesmerized by the absurdity: tossing things off a tall building, just to see them explode.
  • I was mesmerized by the insanity: putting a camera on a monkey’s back just to see the world from a different perspective.
  • I was mesmerized by the anarchy: the total disregard for his employer, GE’s authority. The “GE Handshake” makes me laugh still today.
  • I was mesmerized by the absurd indulgence: Getting Henry Mancini to write the musical introduction to “Viewer Mail.”

As part of my Page duties, during the day, I’d give tours of empty Studio 6A where Late Night was taped. I also sat in Dave’s chair, despite being admonished by my page bosses not to. I threw pencils through the “glass” behind the desk. I sat on the desk, too. In the afternoon, I wandered the halls outside Studio 6A just to get a glimpse of Dave as he headed to and from rehearsal. At the time, he carried a football and obsessively tossed it to himself and others. On a few occasions, I even manned the Studio 6A desk — situated in the hall outside the 6A studio — and handed Dave his dressing room key. On many evenings during my 18 months as a Page at NBC, I also sat the audiences for Late Night.

Just before the show started, Dave would appear to say hello to the audience. He’d crack a few jokes and answer a question or two. Dave had one joke in particular that got a laugh every time he told it. Before someone asked a question, he’d ask “Where are you from?” And regardless of their answer, he’d say: “Oh! By the laundromat.”

Just being around was pretty damn great. But for me, the best part was watching the show. There were a few chairs and some standing room behind the last row of audience chairs. That’s where the Pages sat during the show’s taping. It’s where, by osmosis, I learned the business of revolutionary, hilarious, mischievous, subversive, anarchical comedy.

And, there were a few days when watching the show got trumped by actually being on the show. Now and again, the show would feature one of the NBC Pages in some in-studio comedy segment. And for reasons I don’t know, I got asked a few times. One time, Dave came back from commercial break and on the TV monitors in the studio, instead of Dave sitting at the desk, the channel changed to various celebrities sitting in Dave’s chair — as if someone was changing the channel. Bruce Willis, then Connie Chung, then Fred Savage, among others. Dave shouted that he knew what was wrong and asked the Page to take care of it. The camera turned to the audience and revealed a guy pointing an oversized remote control. My job was to grab the guy and roughly escort him from the studio.

In the blurry screen grab, I was “guarding” one water fountain marked “Dave.” Beside it, another fountain marked “Staff.” While Dave was sitting at the desk, Chris Elliot suddenly appeared and announced his plan to do something no one has ever done… and that it was about time someone did. Chris pushed me out of the way, and drank from the fountain marked “Dave.” When Chris’ applause died down, Dave dismissed him and demanded he take the fake fountains with him.

OK, so it seems clear how Dave influenced my career. Although I was unsuccessful getting hired on Late Night, thankfully Bill Maher was starting up Politically Incorrect, where I spent five years. Now, what about my wife and friend? Well, a few days after I started my job as a Page, another guy started, too. He and I have been fighting about the best way to lose weight three times a week for 25 years. And, about a year after I started as a Page, a pretty girl showed up to start her first day as a Page. The first time I saw her, I knew I would marry her. And I did.

So, thanks Dave for 30 years of revolutionary, hilarious, mischievous, subversive, anarchical comedy. Oh, yeah. And that other junk, too.

Romeo and Juliet, Together Again, Thanks to San Francisco Ballet

I couldn’t wait to see San Francisco Ballet‘s latest offering of Romeo and Juliet. As with most companies, SF Ballet artistic director Helgi Tomasson alternates the casting of the principal parts among several dancers, and I was looking forward to seeing Maria Kochetkova and Davit Karapetyan in the leads, as well as the incomparable Pascal Molat in the demanding role of Mercutio. But this is such a fine, deep company — at the first intermission, talking with my friend Jay Gilman, I said, “I would gladly come back to see the other casts.”

Jay said, “I would gladly come back to see this cast.”

When a company’s principal dancers and soloists are this excellent, your choice of casts often comes down to those whose acting ability or personal style/charisma grabs you. My all-time favorite Romeo will have to be Yuri Possokhov, now the company’s choreographer in residence. Trained in Moscow and a member of the Bolshoi and Royal Danish Ballets before he came to San Francisco, he had magnificent dancing and acting skills, plus, frankly, major sex appeal. (Please don’t think me shallow; I mean — Romeo.) When I saw him dance his last Romeo, in tears at the end, I looked over at my friend, Ivory, who burst out, “Does he know I’m single?!” To tell the truth, I can’t remember who danced Juliet that evening.

This year, tiny, doll-faced Kochetkova, who is a wonderfully proficient ballerina, danced Juliet so girlishly at first, more Clara in Nutcracker, I wondered how she would handle the transition to sudden love and lust for Romeo. She did, of course, starting with her frank interest in the masked Romeo at her father’s ball. By the time she and the handsome Karapetyan performed their gorgeous pas de deux, with all those airy, sensual lifts, in the balcony scene, it was sexual awakening before your very eyes, so to speak. Meantime, you knew the tall and manly Karapetyan, an older ladies man of a Romeo from his flirting with another in the first act, had fallen in love with Juliet’s lovely, innocent charm.

With its sex and violence, Romeo and Juliet is truly a classic ballet crowd pleaser, at least when done right. To break your heart, it really needs dancers who are adept at physical acting, too — dancers who can go beyond the surface of the story’s emotions and embody a notion of the characters. You want to feel their lust and love, anger and heartbreak, bone-deep pain over separation and (what seems, then is) death.

Similarly, all that swordplay between Montagues and Capulets — particularly between the Capulet hothead Tybalt and Romeo’s beloved friend Mercutio, followed by Romeo himself — should have the audience tense. So thank goodness Tomasson, who choreographed this version of R&J, enlisted actor, teacher, and fight expert Martino Pistone to help develop the “fight-scene choreography” and, each time SF Ballet performs this ballet, to train the male dancers in handling those weapons. Set in the Italian Renaissance — hence all those gorgeous velvets and brocades, flowing sleeves and intricate soft caps — this production uses weapons of the period: rapiers (long swords with double-edged blades) and daggers. Each cast’s Romeo, Tybalt and Mercutio practice together, of course; and if there’s a last-minute cast change, Tomasson says it’s nerve-inducing because each duo’s timing is a bit different.

While ballet versions of Shakespeare’s inimitable 1597 play have existed since the late 1700s, most productions now are set to the full-length score composed by Sergey Prokofiev in 1935, which certainly encourages an audience’s swooning and fear. At the same time, the musical passage during Mercutio’s death scene causes it to go on far too long. Though Molat perfectly expressed in movement and mime everything from braggadocio, to careless-seeming flirting, to faltering life, you can never feel the emotions you should when among them is a trace of impatience.

Even Romeo’s anguish at finding Juliet “dead” was overacted and overlong, which kept me from crying my usual buckets of tears. (Only Paris, the wealthy suitor whom Juliet’s parents were forcing her to marry, was dispatched quickly, there in the tomb.) But then Juliet awoke and discovered her Romeo, got up the nerve to stab herself, and crept over to die beside him. When, not yet quite dead, he weakly lifted and dropped his arm over her, my evening was complete.

While this is the last program of the season (and let’s hope SF Ballet brings this beautiful tale of woe back again soon), the company will be performing four short ballets in the city’s Stern Grove Festival, for free, this summer.

May 9, matinees May 9 and 10: San Francisco Ballet, War Memorial Opera House, 301 Van Ness Ave., S.F.; July 26: short ballets, Stern Grove, 415.865.2000.

The last episode of “Seinfeld” may have aired 16 years ago, but the eponymous star of the Emmy Award-winning sitcom is still said to be raking in the dough thanks to the show.

Comedian Jerry Seinfeld speaks onstage at Spike TV’s ‘Don Rickles: One Night Only’ on May 6, 2014 in New York City.

According to Wealth-X, a Singapore-based company that researches the ultra-rich, Jerry Seinfeld raked in at least $ 400 million last year thanks to syndication deals for “Seinfeld.” (Last year, the Independent reported reruns of the show were estimated to have generated some $ 3 billion since the sitcom went off the air). That, together with more recent projects like 2007’s “The Bee Movie,” have kept the 60-year-old comedian’s coffers amply stocked, Wealth-X said in a media release this week. So stocked, in fact, that the company has dubbed him the richest actor in Hollywood — and possibly the world.

“With an estimated net worth of US$ 820 million… Jerry Seinfeld is laughing all the way to the bank,” Wealth-X wrote in the release.

Second on the company’s “Hollywood and Bollywood Rich List,” which compared the estimated net worth of actors and actresses from the U.S. and India, was Shah Rukh Khan (estimated net worth: $ 600 million), a prolific Bollywood actor. Tom Cruise, Tyler Perry and Johnny Depp also made it into the top five.

Teen Cancer Patient Back on the Court Thanks to Teammates’ Twitter Campaign

Tim Monette sit-inA New York high school senior’s battle with cancer led to a fight with his school this week, albeit briefly, when Tim Monette says the principal barred him from playing basketball, his great love. That’s because health issues have forced him to trade class time for at-home tutoring, which, the 17-year-old says he was told, makes him ineligible to play sports, according to school policy.

Give Thanks (and Leftovers) to the Job Creators

Alms for the rich!

WASHINGTON – Don’t give your Thanksgiving leftovers to that food bank or homeless shelter.

America’s job creators have an idea that will avoid making the nation’s “takers” even more lazy and shiftless and, at the same time, help build our domestic energy industry.

Ed Goldenspleen of Goldenspleen, Goldenspleen and Brackish, believes that leftover food is best contributed to the supply side of our economy, where it can support job creators.

“We’ve invented a new process to take precious food that might be wasted feeding our hungry and convert it into a fuel substitute that can help sustain the wealthiest one percent of Americans,” said Goldenspleen. “Kind of gives you goosebumps, if you think about it.”

How? Leftover food can be mulched and converted into a biofuel, which can then be exported via the Keystone pipeline to oil starved refineries in Texas, generating profits for our domestic oil industry.

Those job creators can then grow the economy by hiring new maintenance people, line workers and other low-wage positions.

When those low-wage workers are on their way home to their trailers, cars and sturdy cardboard boxes, they will likely throw a couple of quarters into the cups of begging homeless people, who can take use those quarters to purchase quality hot meals from the dollar menu at McDonald’s.

Those purchases help McDonald’s increase profits and the cycle begins anew.

“It’s almost hard to imagine no one’s thought of this before,” said Goldenspleen. “Ending hunger as a goal sound nice. But where does it end? Does everybody need a swimming pool? Let’s let the market dictate.”
