“Had the best morning at the @ToryBurch fashion show surrounded by so many chic (and tall!) women #NYFW,” Mindy captioned with her Instagram post. “Check out @toryburch’s stories for my takeover!”
HAS KICKSTARTER GIVEN THE COMIC BOOK INDUSTRY A BOOST? Richard Johnston over at Bleeding Cool thinks it’s a mixed bag:Kickstarter and other crowd-funding companies have created a new revenue and publishing stream for comic book creators. It can be used to sidestep distributors and retaiklers, allowing individuals to back comics they like the look of, pre-order them and receive them directly. But it is common in comics publishers for small press publishers that much may go wrong. Delays are the big bugbear and on Kickstarter, combined with fulfillment issues, it’s nomal for the estimated delivery date to be a work of fiction, Lateness comes with the territory. But there;’s a difference between that and non-delivery – and a Kickstaretr funded project that suddenly stops talking to the p[eople who have backed it and are now wondering where their stuff is.

GRAMMY GLOW Michelle Obama was the highlight of the Grammys–and J-Lo brought us a Motown tribute via the Bronx.
Celebitchy said of Mrs. Obama’s surprise appearance: “It was great to see Michelle and it was great to see how everyone in the audience totally loved her and cheered for her. Second of all, I have no idea how this appearance was pitched to Michelle, but I wonder if she would have said yes if she was told that she would stand up there with that particular group of women. It felt like… yay, a celebration of women, but also: Michelle should have been up there alone, because that grouping was random AF. The other women felt tacked-on, last minute, and they hadn’t even rehearsed anything. It felt like an excuse for Alicia to find some way to stand next to Michelle Obama.
DAWWW Your daily dose of cute.

DAMAGED GOODS? “There is a lack of understanding about trauma, and a lack of will to talk about problematic sex. Because experts don’t want to shame anyone, they won’t talk about it. Many of us have a baseline anxiety in the trauma of growing up LGBT, one where we did not feel safe. Leading us to internalize the idea that we are a threat to ourselves. Leading us to become anxious about our entire being.” Gay Star News talks drugs and being LGBT.
