Tiago gained recognition after his debut single Nothing but a Song charted, and his subsequent singles were used in multiple Brazilian soap operas. Since then his music has also proved a huge hit in Japan and South Korea.
Most recently, Iorc won a Latin Grammy in 2019 for his single Desconstrução. His steady success has allowed him to amass over 3 million Instagram followers, but we wonder just how many are receiving allleged DMs like this?!
Like, totally gag me with a spoon! The latest doll to join the American Girl collection is Courtney, a 1980s-themed doll who comes with a totally tubular backstory!
Courtney Moore is a video game lover who spends her time playing Pac-Man inside the arcade at her local shopping mall, looks up to the astronauts aboard the Space Shuttle Challenger and lives with her blended family.
Appropriate for an election year release, Courtney’s mom is also running for mayor of her California town. (OF COURSE SHE IS!)
Children of the ’80s will swoon over the doll’s nostalgic accessories: a mini Caboodle, Lip Smackers lip gloss and Care Bears pajamas, to name a few.
It sounds like Courntey is trying really hard to fit in with that grocery list of interests! We’ll just have to see if she’s as bitchin’ as she claims! Find more pics of Court after the jump!
OMG Stars is an astrology column written by queer astrologer Amelia Ehrhardt (@soft_aspects). Every two weeks, on the new and full moons, Amelia interprets the upcoming astrology with a focus on how to navigate current events (astrological and global). Book an appointment with Amelia here.
The sense of possibility that comes with the start of a new academic year is deeply nostalgic to me. There’s nothing astrological about September that suggests renewal per se, but I can’t help but find the orderly energy of Virgo following the wild energy of Leo to always feel like a reset. With a new moon in the sign, that feeling of renewal begins to make astrological sense to me as we experience the potential collective reset of all things Virgonic.
Virgo is just one part of the Zodiac that is poorly understood. The sign of meticulousness, of detail, of service is often seen as ornery, nitpick, and boring. I personally *love* Virgo and am here to affirm Virgo traits for all my Virgo readers. Virgo will help you move on a dime. Virgo will offer actually useful feedback. Virgo will have remembered to do the thing that you didn’t think needed to get done before you even thought of it. Virgo will pack you a lunch. This sign is helpful.
This new moon, alongside the sun having formed a brief trine to Saturn this week, gives us opportunity to evaluate the ways that we are in service. The ways we help each other. The ways we take on thankless tasks. Saturn in Capricorn has us clinging to old ways of being that Pluto is telling us are time to go: with this new moon in a fellow earth sign, the astrology offers us a gentle push towards seeing that letting go of these structures can actually be helpful.
The long lasting square between Mars and Saturn is highlighting tensions that are butting heads in distinct parts of our lives. Ways that one conflict highlights trauma in another area: the fact that our lives are interwoven. I hope that the changes 2020 has brought to us can be there to show us that it’s unrealistic to leave our personal problems at home (especially when we work from home), or to not let financial troubles bring us down every day. Some people can compartmentalize but many of us cannot, and should not be punished for it.
We are experiencing massive, existential, ambiguous loss and grief right now. Allow yourself to experience it. To experience and grieve the losses and changes that this year has brought to your own life and to the world around you. It is okay to be afraid of what is happening right now. Do not back down from your feelings. Show up for your grief and fear and feelings with your full self. I’m gonna really show my cards here and quote the Bene-Gesserit Litany against Fear:
“I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
As for me, I’m counting down the days til the new Dune movie is released just before the winter solstice.
This is the best news we’ve heard all year! ’90s MTV icons Beavis and Butthead are set to return in 2020 on Comedy Central. But how will they fare in today’s evolved world with a much-needed push for representation of all marginalized people? Find their answer above!
