Cry for the Bad Man

Ugh. Some days no matter what you do, things just won't go your way. One thing can throw you off or get under your skin and then suddenly you're sobbing for every bad thing that ever happened to you.

Naked

This week Kim Kardashian West attempted to #breaktheinternet with the release of some rather grand photographs of her butt. Shot by Jean-Paul Goude for Paper magazine, the cover (right) pays homage to her famous derriere.
